The Latest U.N. Insult

By INVESTOR’S BUSINESS DAILY | Posted Monday, May 19, 2008

Excerpt:

With the world awash in disaster, the United Nations is spending money to send a “special rapporteur” to look into racism in one of its member nations. The country? Why, the United States, of course.

The rapporteur in question, Senegal’s Doudou Diene, will investigate “contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance” in a number of American cities.

In fact, the U.S. is the least racist nation on Earth. Diene’s visit is a calculated insult to both the American people and President Bush, and an attempt to influence the upcoming U.S. election.

Sure we have our problems. But it’s hard to say a country where the leading candidate for president of one party is an African-American, while the other party has in the past eight years named highly accomplished blacks, Hispanic-Americans and Asian-Americans – Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, Carlos Gutierrez, Alberto Gonzales and Elaine Chao – to the highest federal positions they’ve ever occupied, is actively racist.

The U.S. also has 40 million immigrants from virtually every nation on the globe, easily the largest such population of any nation. Will Diene look into that, too?

To see what a canard this idea is, one has only to look how America behaves globally. Each year, we spend billions of dollars, both public and private, to help less fortunate people around the globe – including people who don’t share our predominant skin color or our majority religion or our main ethnic heritage.

In the past two decades, the U.S. has intervened militarily on behalf of Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Bosnia and Kosovo, none of which is exactly American – by race or religion.

When the tsunami hit Thailand in 2004, U.S. aid flooded the country – though some of the beneficiaries included those who applauded Osama bin Laden’s 9/11 attack on America. A U.S. Navy ship dutifully anchored off the coast to dispense badly needed emergency goods. U.S. aid workers are still there today.

In Burma, a country that bears virtually no cultural, racial or ethnic propinquity to the U.S., we have aggressively sought to save lives following Cyclone Nargis.

American planes and ships filled with emergency aid and workers have been forced to wait while the murderous Burmese regime lets its people die. Why no U.N. action on that?

The record is clear: Total public and private sector aid from the U.S. to others totaled $130 billion in 2006, the most recent year for which data are available. That’s a 6% increase from the year before, and four times what the next biggest giver delivered.

Add in $500 billion-plus in defense spending – much of which goes to protect other nations from the threat of war, terror or violent cutoffs of trade – and the U.S. is far and away the most generous nation on the planet. Not exactly a sign of rampant racism.

Meanwhile, the U.N. itself is no paragon. It’s directly responsible for holding Palestinians in camps for 60 years while passing inane resolution after resolution condemning the only peaceful, prosperous and completely democratic regime in the Mideast – Israel.

The U.N. should investigate other members’ rampant racism, which takes the form of extreme hatred for the West and its values.

Truth matters very little to the UN, as the 2001 World Conference Against Racism so clearly demonstrated. The UN takes great pleasure in embarrassing the United States whenever it gets a chance.

The UN with hold the interviews in front of a hand picked audience (who are politically and monetarily motivated), and with no big surprise announce that Americans are prejudice. Mark my words, Progressives will use this report to fan the fires of a false crisis.
