Video: The Obama administration shames AmericaTwo and a half weeks ago, I reported on the United States' periodic review at the UN 'Human Rights Council.' At the time, I said that the Republican party ought to get a hold of the video for use in the next election cycle. I now have that video and it's even worse than I thought it would be.
Let's go to the videotape. I'll have more afterward.
The last comment on the tape was the key one: Demeaning the United States is apparently in President Obama's political interests. The key foreign policy goal of the Obama administration is to destroy the notion that America is an exceptional nation, and to cut it down to the same size as brutal dictatorships around the world. Trying to cut down America's most feisty ally by forcing it into a situation where it will have to fight for its very existence is part of the same 'strategy.'
I'm embarrassed by this as an American. As I have told you all many times, I moved to Israel despite my love for America, and not because I was unhappy in America. Seeing my country of birth debased like this hurts. It ought to hurt those of you who are Americans too.
I follow Eric Cantor, Mike Pence, Marco Rubio and Jim Demint on Twitter (and Sarah Palin). I doubt any of them would know who I am (although Demint follows me as well). If any of you is connected enough to get their attention, please send this post to them. The shaming of America has to stop.
