Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the UN in all it's transnational progressive glory:
U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, in his farewell address, criticized the Bush administration, warning that America must not sacrifice its Democratic ideals while waging war against terrorism.
And what exactly does Mr. Annan know about Democratic ideals? Unless, of course, he's referring to Democratic National Committee ideals. Gee, and what does Mr. Annan think is important, aside from world class family graft?
Annan summed up five principles that he considers essential: collective responsibility, global solidarity, rule of law, mutual accountability and multilateralism.
Noticeably absent are any reference to freedom and individual liberties. Needless to say, our first principles don't have much in common. Here are a few stock phrases from our nation's founding Mr. Annan might want to familiarize himself with before lecturing Americans on Democracy: "the tyranny of the majority" and "consent of the governed."
Pardon my lack of diplomacy in responding to your fare not so well speech Mr. Annan, but go to hell.
