As freedom and individuality are crushed throughout the Middle East under the weight of Sharia law, Barack Obama opts to bow and grovel at the feet of Islamic dictators with whom he seeks to â€œbuild bridges.â€ Comity with such people is paramount. In contrast, human rights abuses among the common people of those regions are inconsequential. Or worse, as was the case in Iran after thug leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad secured his electoral victory through highly dubious means, the concerns and complaints of the people become a distraction and hindrance to Obamaâ€™s fawning diplomatic overtures, at which point he turns a blind eye to the mass state oppression of their dissenting voices.
On this side of the Atlantic, things are rapidly deteriorating towards the same dismal condition. And it is becoming increasingly apparent that the Administration has no interest in upholding or protecting the basic rights previously enjoyed by Americans, as evidenced by Attorney General Eric Holderâ€™s willingness to allow voter intimidation by New Black Panther members in Philadelphia to go unpunished, despite incontrovertible evidence of their criminal actions. The definition of â€œcrimesâ€ and any resulting government involvement in pursuing them as such will henceforth be determined by their potential for gaining liberal political advantage and not by some simplistic and blind devotion to justice.
As an inevitable result, Americans increasingly find themselves subjected to third-world style injustice, including false accusations of wrongdoing based not on the written law, but on the twisted premises of â€œpolitical correctness,â€ which will ultimately overshadow any effort to restore fairness and integrity to the legal system. The latest effort by the White House to humiliate and impugn the good people of Arizona, this time on the world stage, cannot be interpreted in any other manner.
Were the United Nations merely feckless and inept, the monstrous sums of money bestowed to it by the United States government would still be indefensible. Yet over the years it has degenerated into something far worse than a mere roundtable of babbling â€œdiplomats.â€ Corruption and hypocrisy run rampant in its midst, with emissaries from brutal and corrupt dictatorships often chiding the civilized world, and the United States in particular, over supposed infractions of imaginary standards of decency in dealing with the human condition.
The arrangement was abhorrent in the past, as U.S. presidents attempted to deflect such criticism while maintaining what they vainly believed was the proper degree of American support and presence in the organization. But with the advent of this Administration, the situation has grown far worse. Now, instead of defending the United States against this gaggle of leftists and their third-world nattering, the Administration invokes their disdain as a means of debasing this nation, thus validating their accusations and condemnation.
The latest betrayal of the nation came with the State Departmentâ€™s submission of its â€œReport to the UN Council on Human Rightsâ€ on August 27. In this document, the Administration attempts to make the case that its opposition to Arizonaâ€™s Senate Bill 1070 constitutes an effort to restore human rights in the Grand Canyon State. Conversely, the effort by Arizona to stem the invasion of illegal aliens from Mexico must be presumed as an infringement and abuse of those rights.
Reality has long ago been driven far from the entire illegal immigration debate. Whereas throughout the rest of the world, flagrant and horrific abuses of human rights have occurred against oppressed citizens at the hands of their own imperious governments, which have often forcibly and violently prevented them from escaping from their control, the ostensible â€œvictimsâ€ of the Arizona law are attempting to unlawfully enter and remain within the purview of this nation, facing at worst, the potential for eviction from its borders.
In the Administrationâ€™s despicable world, America is no longer a nation with legal boundaries, put in place to preserve and protect its assets and its culture for the ultimate service of its own citizens. Instead, it is merely an accumulation of ill gotten material wealth, which should be rightly distributed amongst those who covet a portion of it. To deny anything to such people, on any basis is, in the thinking of Obama and his leftist minions, to violate their â€œrights.â€
Nowhere in this discussion is any consideration given to the fact that each fragment of America being doled out to an illegal invader was first produced though the toil and industry of the people of the nation. Obamaâ€™s â€œcompassionâ€ and â€œgenerosityâ€ amount to a pillaging of those resources from the people who forged and built the nation and now seek to pass its blessings on to their posterity.
Efforts by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer to protect the lives and property of the good people of her state are, in reality, no infringement whatsoever on the â€œhuman rightsâ€ of law abiding people. And in fact, they are the surest guarantee that all future legal citizens of Arizona, or any state in this nation, whether immigrant or natural born, will benefit from the opportunity to thrive and flourish in a safe and wholesome society, free of the encroaching dangers of a burgeoning subculture with neither a reverence for its heritage nor a concern for its future.
In contrast, the Administrationâ€™s latest betrayal of Arizona and the United States is not the behavior of a sincere patriot who holds any serious regard for his oath of office. Rather it is the sordid conduct of a committed leftist and his political minions who maintain no allegiance to the nation or respect for its institutions and integrity, and who regularly demonstrate their intentions to undermine and ultimately eradicate it.
By now it has become grimly obvious that their despicable actions will continue unabated until â€œWe the Peopleâ€ decide that we have had enough, and correct the mistake of ever having so cavalierly allowed such unworthy and malignant individuals access to the hallowed reins of power.
