Can’t Promote Freedom Abroad as it Disappears at Home
Simple wisdom, that President Obama is not likely to heed. In order to see you have to want to look at the truth that’s actually out there.
With reality so different from how our president wishes to portray it, he has little interest in seeing things as they really are.
The president delivered a “Kumbaya” appeal this past week to the current session of the United Nations General Assembly. The pitch, about peaceful resolution of disputes, tolerance, and free speech, was clearly aimed at Muslim nations.
The following day, Egypt’s newly elected Muslim Brotherhood President Morsi stood before the General Assembly and gave his reply. No thanks.
Sure, Egypt will respect free speech, as long as it does not offend “one specific religion or culture.”
