A major United Nations anti-racism conference was thrown into further disarray Sunday when more countries joined a U.S. boycott amid concerns it was developing into a platform for attacking Israel.
The United Nation’s anti-racism efforts make about as much sense as its Human Right Commission, both of which have turned into little more than pot-clanging lunatic shelters for the likes of Iran, Sudan and other countries that have elevated torture and violation of human rights to art forms. Sure. Let’s take lessons on racism from the sort of anti-Semites who would make Hitler seem like a Jew-lover. These are people that want to make it illegal to joke about their religion while calling Jews a bunch of baby-killing, half-pig/half-ape vampires.
The United Nations is a joke. The fact that it was George W. Bush saying as much for the last eight years didn’t make it any less a statement of fact. Perhaps one benefit of having Democrats in charge will be that we can ALL admit that without being called torture-happy right-wing reactionaries. When it comes to attacking the U.S., the West, and the sorts of civilizations that gave it life, it’s a cacophony of ankle-biting goons. When it comes to doing something–anything–about actual evil and true threats to the world at large, it’s both blind and toothless.
Of course, there’s always one bunch of useful idiots in our midst (and it’s typically this same bunch). The Congressional Black Caucus, last seen on its knees sucking off the Castro regime, is “deeply dismayed” that the Obama administration didn’t itself embrace a knee-jerk response just because the brain trust in the U.N. decided to call its hate fest an “anti-racism” conference. I don’t expect our elected representatives to have IQs much higher than a box of saltines, but these clowns continually fail to meet even my basement-level expectations.
