So this racist walks into a conference ...

  • Follow Editorials

A few protesters dressed like clowns were escorted out of the U.N. Conference on Racism Monday in Geneva.

The rest of the clowns in the audience were allowed to stay.

Any clown could have told you what a bad joke the conference would be. A featured speaker on opening day was the world's No. 1 racist and madman, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. And the last U.N. conference on race in Durban, South Africa, in 2001 was nothing but an anti-Semitic diatribe that formally denounced the very existence of Israel as racism.

Does that not indicate the United Nations is, itself, racist? Isn't the U.N. holding a conference on racism akin to having an NAACP conference organized and catered by the KKK?

It speaks volumes that the United States' first African-American president felt so pessimistic about a U.N. conference on race that his administration is boycotting it, along with a handful of other correct-thinking nations.

Of those who attended, some 40 delegates finally had the smarts to get up and walk out after a particularly racist remark by Ahmadinejad toward Israel. Gee, big surprise there. Who could have seen that coming?

The problem isn't so much Ahmadinejad - he doesn't know he's insane, the poor little thing. The problem is a United Nations that not only sends him his membership badge every year but exalts him as a keynote speaker at a conference on racism.

Why is any member nation attending this conference when they knew, or should have known, that they'd be served up a heaping helping of hatred from this nutcase?

More importantly, why is Iran allowed to be a member of the supposed family of nations when he's made it perfectly clear he wants to get nuclear weapons and that he wants another member nation, Israel, "wiped off the map"?

That tells you pretty much all you need to know about the United Nations.

This conference is a sick joke, but it will be over soon. The United Nations, the much bigger joke, will go on.

If Obama is able to see what

If Obama is able to see what this conference on racism is, and boycotts it, why does he think he can win friends and influence enemies by groveling before dictators and apologizing for being from America? His actions with the U.N. and his apology tours seem to be in total conflict. I wonder if the mad Marxist is just interested in "face time".

The article is completely
Unpublished

The article is completely wrong. One man's racist is another man's Freedom Fighter. The US was wrong not to send officials to Geneva and allow Iran's leader to highjack the conference. And because the Non-Minority Media (NMM), Editorial Staffs, talking heads on TV, say "he is a racist" doesn't make it so. ("They" called MLK worse-not a comparision) The new president disappointed many citizens by his decision and will have to again address this issue of racism. America wants to say, "racism is over" but the UN has current data that demonstrates it being alive & well. That's why our presence was needed, not because of one country or one man, but to address the continued racism throughout the world.

Anyone who is old enough to

Anyone who is old enough to have a cognitive thought would automatically reference the United Nations as having racist imperialist of atheistic ideology...The origins may have been conceived of good intentions but now it is just a stepping stone to a One World Government...Racist is hardly a word I would use for the likes of Ahmadinedjad and others who have similar beliefs...

So, justus, racism is even

So, justus, racism is even more important to you than your choice for president. Your post here speaks volumes. It also makes me more likely to believe that you are a mere impostor.

People should check out

People should check out http://www.muzzlewatch.com/. The editor is attending the conference and posting several times daily. The responsible position is to enhance the good of the conference and minimize the bad. Racism remains an important issue in the U.S. and many other countries. Allowing one speech to derail that work is simply attaching to the flimsiest excuse to avoid addressing the issues.

It's strange, Obama has been

It's strange, Obama has been doing some pretty smart things as president for the last few weeks. Shooting pirates in the head and not going to stupid PC "Racism" seminars by the UN seem to be pretty smart for a democrat.

I think the guy was a perfect

I think the guy was a perfect example of racism and maybe thats exactly what the UN wanted-people walking out on him because of what he SAID. Nothing proves a point less than to talk about someone instead of letting him show his true colors for ALL to see.

Ahmadinejad has made this

Ahmadinejad has made this same speech every year for the past 5 years. The "staged" walk out was for the press. Business as usual tomorrow at the U.N.

U.N. is an organization which

U.N. is an organization which has worn out itswelcome in the U.S. I would like to know what treaty exist which keeps the U.N in New York City.

The U.N. might have been a good idea, but too many nations have their own interest and make it a toothless and clawless tiger. If the U.N. had any spine, it would have acted against Saddam, taken action in Dafur, taken action against the Taliban, acted against the pirates operating out of Somalia and taken action in other palces in the world.

AS for racism, research the member nations which head up the conference - some of these nations are lead by racist.
