Oh, this is rich! Crowned an honorary citizen of Gaza and given a Palestinian ‘passport’ by the Hamas leader, Jimmy Carter whines about America’s human rights leadership decline

Hey..maybe he’s on Barack Hussein Obama’s hit list? Nah, no such luck, they are birds of a feather.

NY TIMES  Jimmuh says, “THE United States is abandoning its role as the global champion of human rights.

Revelations that top officials are targeting people to be assassinated abroad, including American citizens, are only the most recent, disturbing proof of how far our nation’s violation of human rights has extended. This development began after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and has been sanctioned and escalated by bipartisan executive and legislative actions, without dissent from the general public. As


a result, our country can no longer speak with moral authority on these critical issues. (Oh, Boo Hoo, we are killing terrorists abroad. I guess we should be wringing our hands in despair)

While the country has made mistakes in the past (You mean like when you helped to overthrow the Shah of Iran which gave us the Mullahs who are getting ready to nuke Israel and America mistakes?), the widespread abuse of human rights over the last decade has been a dramatic change from the past. (Yes it has, now we surgically kill a few bad guys, whereas in the past, we destroyed the enemy by destroying his country and his will to resist. Our bad)

With leadership from the United States, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted in 1948 as “the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.” This was a bold and clear commitment that power would no longer serve as a cover to oppress or injure people, and it established equal rights of all people to life, liberty, security of person, equal protection of the law and freedom from torture, arbitrary detention or forced exile. (Trouble is, only our allies abide by that, and not all of them)


The declaration has been invoked by human rights activists commies and the international community to replace most of the world’s dictatorships with democracies and to promote the rule of law in domestic and global affairs. (Yet most  Muslim countries, all of whom are members of the UN, are stilled ruled by dictators, tyrants, and religious fanatics) It is disturbing that, instead of strengthening these principles, our government’s counterterrorism policies are now clearly violating at least 10 of the declaration’s 30 articles, including the prohibition against “cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.” (I guess, we should treat terrorists with kid gloves, as Obama has ordered the military to do in Gitmo. Maybe that’s why we haven’t gotten any useful information since we waterboarded  Khalid Sheikh Mohammed?)


Recent legislation has made legal the president’s right to detain a person indefinitely on suspicion of affiliation with terrorist organizations or “associated forces,” a broad, vague power that can be abused without meaningful oversight from the courts or Congress (the law is currently being blocked by a federal judge). This law violates the right to freedom of expression and to be presumed innocent until proved guilty, two other rights enshrined in the declaration. (Not to worry, Jimmy, this won’t be used against any of your terrorist pals, just the gun-toting bitter clingers, American patriots, returning war veterans, Christians, Tea Partiers, and anti-Islam bloggers, all the groups that head up Janet Napolitano’s terrorist watch list)

In addition to American (Muslim)citizens’ being targeted


for assassination or indefinite detention, recent laws have canceled the restraints in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 to allow unprecedented violations of our rights to privacy through warrantless wiretapping and government mining of our electronic communications. Popular state laws permit detaining individuals because of their appearance (Muslim), where they worship (mosques) or with whom they associate (Muslim terrorists). (What’s the problem?)

Despite an arbitrary rule that any man killed by drones is declared an enemy terrorist, the death of nearby innocent women and children is accepted as inevitable. After more than 30 airstrikes on civilian homes this year in Afghanistan, President Hamid Karzai has demanded that such attacks end, but the practice continues in areas of Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen that are not in any war zone. (And this is a bad thing, because why? At least 70% of  Pakistanis and Afghans are inbred)We don’t know how many hundreds of innocent civilians have been killed in these attacks, each one approved by the highest authorities in


Washington. This would have been unthinkable in previous times. (That’s because in previous times, we were not fighting an entire fascist ideology posing as a religion, where the enemy is everywhere in the population)

These policies clearly affect American foreign policy. Top intelligence and military officials, as well as rights defenders (commies) in targeted areas, affirm that the great escalation in drone attacks has turned aggrieved families toward terrorist organizations, aroused civilian populations against us and permitted repressive governments to cite such actions to justify their own despotic behavior. (Well Duh, as if they didn’t have an excuse to hate us enough before)

Meanwhile, the detention facility at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, now houses 169 prisoners  Muslim terrorists. About half have been cleared for release, yet have little prospect of ever obtaining their freedom. (Only because their own countries refuse to take them back, you idiot) American authorities have revealed that, in order to obtain confessions, some of the few being tried, only in military courts (where they belong), have been tortured by waterboarding more than 100 times or intimidated with semiautomatic weapons, power drills or threats to sexually assault their mothers. (Good, that’s the way to get terrorists to talk)


Astoundingly, these facts cannot be used as a defense by the accused, because the government claims they occurred under the cover of “national security.” (We have the scumbags on the Left to thank for that) Most of the other prisoners have no prospect of ever being charged or tried either. (Good, let them rot in Gitmo. They like it better there than home anyway. Private rooms, no work, gourmet halal food, wide screen TV, lawyers galore, arts & crafts, workout rooms, prayer rooms, and sports and activities galore. Some are even getting college educations in prison)


At a time when popular Muslim Brotherhood fundamentalist revolutions are sweeping the globe, the United States should be strengthening, not weakening, basic rules of law and principles of justice enumerated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. But instead of making the world safer, America’s violation of international human rights abets our enemies and alienates our friends. (You’ve got that backwards, Jimmuh. Obama is pandering to our enemies, who are laughing at him anyway, while he is stabbing our allies in the back. Now everyone hates him)


As concerned citizens, we must persuade Washington to reverse course and regain moral leadership according to international human rights norms that we had officially adopted as our own and cherished throughout the years. (Oh, we will  do that – on Election Day)
