Ben Shapiro: Obama’s 15 Worst Moments At The UN

Speaking at the United Nations on Wednesday, President Obama performed the signal feat of cramming his head so far up his own ass that his head actually emerged from his mouth again, thereby creating the first human Escher loop. His speech at the United Nations was chock-full of moronic platitudes, internal contradictions, and morally disgusting sentiments.

Here are the top fifteen:

“Together, we have learned how to cure disease, and harness the power of the wind and sun.” Which is, of course, why disease remains rampant in Africa – so much so that Obama is sending 3,000 troops there to combat Ebola virus – and why America garners a whopping 4.13 percent of her electricity from wind and 0.23 percent from the sun. But the Godking hath reined global forces to his chariot, and shall ride the moonbeams!

“We are here because others realized that we gain more from cooperation than conquest.” Well, no. We are here because civilized nations banded together to defeat Nazis and then communism, not because of some global revelation about the power of cooperation. This is a third grade rendition of history.

We believe that right makes might – that bigger nations should not be able to bully smaller ones; that people should be able to choose their own future.” If Obama believes this, he has the mental capacity of a chipmunk. Obviously, right does not make might. If it did, millions of Jews would still be living in Germany and Poland, the Soviet Empire never would have risen, and the Yazidis would be decimating ISIS. We actually believe that it is the duty of right to grow its defense capacity and then fight for its principles – both notions foreign to President Obama.

While small gains can be won at the barrel of a gun, they will ultimately be turned back if enough voices support the freedom of nations and peoples to make their own decisions.” Again, no. Millions of voices have cried out for freedom in North Korea and China for decades, to no avail. It isn’t about raising voices. It’s about strategically outflanking evil nations and crippling their capacity to continue functioning.

“My message to Iran’s leaders and people is simple: do not let this opportunity pass. We can reach a solution that meets your energy needs while assuring the world that your program is peaceful.“ Iran’s mullahs are still laughing at this one.

“America is and will continue to be a Pacific power, promoting peace, stability, and the free flow of commerce among nations. But we will insist that all nations abide by the rules of the road, and resolve their territorial disputes peacefully, consistent with international law.” The Chinese politburo is still laughing at this one.

“On issue after issue, we cannot rely on a rule-book written for a different century.” Who wrote this rulebook? And why, if Obama is presenting a new rulebook, do his rules so closely conform to those of his leftist predecessors?

“Islam teaches peace. Muslims the world over aspire to live with dignity and a sense of justice. And when it comes to America and Islam, there is no us and them – there is only us, because millions of Muslim Americans are part of the fabric of our country.” Well, actually, there is a “them” – as in the huge portion of Muslims who support the goals and aims of al Qaeda and ISIS.

“The ideology of ISIL or al Qaeda or Boko Haram will wilt and die if it is consistently exposed, confronted, and refuted in the light of day.” Then why are we bombing them? Why not send pamphlets? (Note: to support this notion, Obama actually cited a sheikh who has endorsed murder of US soldiers in the Middle East.)

“Next year, we should all be prepared to announce the concrete steps that we have taken to counter extremist ideologies…” Next year. Always next year.

“There is nothing new about wars within religions. Christianity endured centuries of vicious sectarian conflict. Today, it is violence within Muslim communities that has become the source of so much human misery.” Nothing like citing history from centuries ago to downplay Muslim sectarian violence today.

“But the only lasting solution to Syria’s civil war is political – an inclusive political transition that responds to the legitimate aspirations of all Syrian citizens, regardless of ethnicity or creed.” And what, pray tell, would this magical political solution look like, given that last year President Obama was busily telling the UN that Syrian dictator Bashar Assad must go, and this year is busily telling the UN we must bomb those who oppose Assad?

“[T]he countries of the Arab and Muslim world must focus on the extraordinary potential of their people – especially the youth.” This would be a grand idea, except for the inconvenient fact that a disproportionate number of terrorists are Muslim and Arab youths. Oops.

“No God condones this terror. No grievance justifies these actions. There can be no reasoning – no negotiation – with this brand of evil. The only language understood by killers like this is the language of force….the violence engulfing the region today has made too many Israelis ready to abandon the hard work of peace. But let’s be clear: the status quo in the West Bank and Gaza is not sustainable.” Self-defense for America, but not for the Jews, according to the President. The Jews must continue to pursue the “hard work of peace,” even if they’re experiencing rocket fire every day; America, however, can bomb the hell out of ISIS even if ISIS is located thousands of miles away and largely threatens other Muslims. The hypocrisy is rank, and moral equivocation repulsive.

“In a summer marked by instability in the Middle East and Eastern Europe, I know the world also took notice of the small American city of Ferguson, Missouri – where a young man was killed, and a community was divided. So yes, we have our own racial and ethnic tensions.” Officer Darren Wilson can chat with the YouTube “Innocence of Muslims” filmmaker below the bus as he becomes a symbol of all American racial intolerance, despite complete lack of evidence. Thanks, Mr. President!
