    EDITORIAL: Obama administration indicts America - Washington Times


    "Move over Cuba, Iran, North Korea and Syria. The State Department has made it official: The United States violates human rights. In an unprecedented move, the Obama administration submitted a report to the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights detailing the progress and problems in dealing with human rights issues in this country. The document is a strange combination of left-wing history and White House talking points.
    It describes how the United States discriminates against the disabled, homosexuals, women, Native Americans, blacks, Hispanics and those who don't speak English. There is the expected pandering to Muslims, noting that the government is committed to "challenge misperceptions and discriminatory stereotypes, to prevent acts of vandalism and to combat hate crimes," offenses that the American people evidently keep committing. And the current economic woes are blamed on the housing crisis, which itself was the result of "discriminatory lending practices." The implication is that if Americans had only been less racist, they would be enjoying prosperity today.
    The report notes that until recently, the U.S. engaged in torture, unlawfully detained terrorist suspects and illegally spied on Americans communicating with terrorists - but the report assures readers that Mr. Obama has been putting a stop to all that.
    The main impact of the document will be to confirm critiques of the United States as a haven for hatred and rights abuses. It turns the Obama administration's domestic political agenda into an international scorecard by which other countries can judge American "progress." And it makes it that much more difficult for those abroad who have held up the United States as a model for the kind of liberal, capitalistic democracy they would like to see in their own countries.
    "Progress is our goal," the report proclaims, "and our expectation thereof is justified by the proven ability of our system of government to deliver the progress our people demand and deserve." This reflects the general tone of a report that sees the state, not the people, as the source of American progress. All the problems discussed have a corresponding federal solution, whether health care, nutrition, housing or any other issue. To read the report, one could conclude that, to the Obama administration, big government is not just everything - it is the only thing.
    The authors claim that the United States does not, by filing the report, "acknowledge commonality with states that systematically abuse human rights," but of course it does. Dictatorships, authoritarian regimes and theocracies competing for legitimacy on the world stage have been handed a potent new weapon, the kind of assessment they would never offer about their own governments. The report also cautions that it should not be read to reflect "doubt in the ability of the American political system to deliver progress for its citizens." The authors of the report should understand that the doubts in the Obama administration to deliver progress are already well-established. And they come from the American people, who don't need the United Nations telling them to shape up."

    The Washington Times

    All I can say is wow! This guy is supposed to be getting us somewhere, not telling the world that Americans are the most "bad" and "evil", most "racist" people. And telling the world to punish us by fining us. Where is that money even going to, the UN? I don't know much about the situation but it seems bad. More like regressive, than progresives.

    Eh, screw him. As long as I'm living comfortably I'm fine. Let him fondle the gays and promise other minorities this and that. It's how he got to where he is now. Whether he makes good on those promises, it doesn't matter. I'm not against him, but most people that voted for him now see that he has yet to come through on some of his key things. Sure, it takes a few years, usually once he's out of office, to see the fruits of his labor, but have we seen the guy even work?

    The article doesn't quote the report as saying Americans are the most "Bad and evil and racist", and unfortunately it doesn't link to the actual report in full, and nor have you; could you post a link to the report that you read those things in please?

    Anyway, are you claiming the report is wrong in it's observations? if not then of course it should be reporting the situation honestly, the alternative would be to dishonestly and cowardly ignore the issues, and give a false representation. Do you think that would be acceptable?

    Wow...a long quote from the Washington Times, a completely discredited right-wing lunatic newspaper owned and operated by the Moonie Unification Church.

    The Moonie paper is about as truthful and reliable as, say, Glenn Beck.

    What is sad is that about 20% of Americans believe the crap spewed by the Moonie paper or by the witch of wasilla or by St. Glenn of Beckistan.

    Predictable.

    All you guys can do is blame Bush and Fox. Bunch of one trick ponies.

    Only thing worse than a R is a D.

    And no, he doesn't do shit. Hasn't accomplished a damn thing, and has actually just screwed things up worse.

    Did you know GW Bush who is an avid golfer, did not golf once during his 8 years of presidency because he didn't think it was right to be doing something he loved while the country was in turmoil? Meanwhile, 2 years into office, The Obama family has taken several expensive vacations, on the taxpayers dime no less.

    Where is the liberal outrage when King Obama flies his dog ON A FRICKEN PRIVATE JET to their vacation in Maine?

    Where is the liberal outrage when King Obama flies (on AF 1) to NYC for "Date Night"? Est expense for that night was over $240,000.

    Where is the liberal outrage when Queen Michelle flies to Spain, with 40 of her closest friends, at rooms costing about $2,500 a night (60 rooms total) for a week of SHOPPING and eating???

    The BIG issue is that the liberal "useful idiots" are enabling the Obamas to live like royalty. NOBODY has the right to squander US Tax Dollars, at the rate that the current administration is doing!!!!!

    The Obama's DON'T give a rats a$$ about the common man. All they want is to live like royalty for 4 years, with absolutely NO acknowledgment of the sacrifices that the "common man" is making.

    Yet the liberals were all over GW Bush when he went to his ranch to chop wood and do other low key things.

    REALLY? The libtards are all about "Equality this" and "Equality that" well what's so equal and fair about the obama's squandering tax payer money to fulfill their own fruitless ambitions of fun? How is that fair or equal? Why aren't you libtards all over the First family about that?

    If Obama was a republican/conservative, you guys would be all over him about this. But he's not, and libtards aren't. Which just goes to show you guys don't want equality, your all full of shit.

    Iowa and bobpaul ease up on the insults. Just because people have different opinions, it doesn't mean that you should start by insulting them with labels calling them liberal ******s. Perhaps addressing the fallacies of the article or issues might be a better way to go.

    Btw, I'm a centrist. Just right of center on most issues.

    I usually look but don't touch the political arguments here, because nothing constructive ever comes from them. But IOWA? Man, did you throw away all the respect I had for you!

    You forgot the photo of him eating pretzels and drinking himself into a stupor while on the couch, and then falling off and banging his head. And where's the photo of him falling off his bike while drunk, then waking up and seeing jesus? :D

    Sometimes the truth hurts. See my sig for details. I could care less if I have anyone's respect or not, and if you don't respect someone for telling the truth on a matter, then what does that say about you?

    Amen! This is where the Republican's went wrong in this country, they bought into the argument that NOT hurting peoples feelings was more important than TRUTH!

    Those that pander due to "feelings" have lost my respect.

    and once again what had the potential to become an intelligent political discussion were a topic could be researched and we could all learn something, has turned into a shouting match to see who can insult more and scream the loudest. Nice job everyone.

    The starter post in this thread was nothing more than the usual right-wing b.s. from, of all places, the Moonie paper, the Washington Times. Quoting the Moonie paper or Limbaugh or Palin or Bachman or any of hte usual "sources" on Fox news will not generate an intelligent political discussion.

    Serious, thinking people do not take such sources seriously.
