Tsk, Tsk. You Americans.

The Obama administration denigrates America and Americans in a report to the United Nations:

This morning, the U.S. State Department announced that the U.S. had submitted its “Report of the United States of America”  to the United Nations (UN) High Commissioner for Human Rights. This report was submitted as part of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) conducted by the UN Human Rights Council (HRC). In November, the U.S. Administration will formally present the findings of its report to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva. Judging from the content of the U.S. report, that November presentation will consist of much wailing and gnashing of teeth over the inadequacy of America.

Read the whole thing to get a feeling for the wailing and gnashing of teeth over America – and American’s – shortcomings in the view of the won.

I am, frankly, tired of this near continuous America-bashing coming from someone who is supposed to – constitutionally – be looking out for the best interests of this nation.The report from the Heritage Foundation ends like this:

When reading the UPR report, the salient words of Alexander Hamilton should come to mind. In Federalist No. 6, Hamilton warned Americans not to listen to “visionary or designing men, who stand ready to advocate the paradox of perpetual peace” and who wish to “soften the manners of men.” If someone can honestly believe that perfection and peace is possible through politics, then that person, according to Hamilton, “must be far gone in Utopian speculations.” It would appear that the White House is fundamentally dissatisfied with life on planet earth, and the United States of America, in particular. Yet, there are things government can do, and things government cannot do. The Obama Administration should focus on the former, and stop lamenting the absence of utopian peace on earth.

Obama was not elected to be the buddy of the world. He was – for better or worse (yeah, I think it was worse) – elected to be the president of this nation. It is about time he started acting like it.

    The UN has proved itself repeatedly to be toothless when dealing with the crimes and tyranny of numerous nations, preferring instead to point the finger at the West — though given that that the hand that guides much of the UN is from the likes of Iran then it is hardly surprising.

    But all left wingers are marked by one common trait: the impulse to belittle countries like America while praising the murderous and narrow-minded like North Korea and China and the lands of the mullahs. Ensuring the likes of Chavez and Castro are comforted while blaming leaders who actually do care about their people. Glorify the mass-murderers and whine about how supposedly small the contribution of America and its allies.

    We should not be surprised, but we are. Marxists and their offspring for years have routinely praised tyrants and their murderous regimes while refusing to really look at what goes on beneath the surface. They prefer to look away and talk impressively of peace while not having the slightest comprehension of what peace is and what is required to keep that peace.

    In the meantime the corrupt UN dances to the tune of the dictators who mouth words like ‘democracy’ and yet crush it in their own countries.

    Which is of course is why the UN is located in New York. How handy for the evil ones that they get time to visit, because if the UN headquarters was placed in their own countries then the world might actually see what was happening there.

    Well, gosh. We must be fair-minded about this. Other countries may have kleptocratic tyrants and mass murder, but we have overtime parking tickets.
