Obama trashes the First Amendment

Most of us knew this was coming. Now it has arrived, and what does the pundits write about? Obama making a fool of America over the circus called the "Olympics." But I digress. Try this:

The new resolution, championed by the Obama administration, has a number of disturbing elements. It emphasizes that "the exercise of the right to freedom of expression carries with it special duties and responsibilities . . ." which include taking action against anything meeting the description of "negative racial and religious stereotyping." It also purports to "recognize . . . the moral and social responsibilities of the media" and supports "the media's elaboration of voluntary codes of professional ethical conduct" in relation to "combating racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance."

Now that is Obama's minions in the UN supporting and helping Muslim theocracies shut up anyone who criticizes Islam.

Are you really surprised? Think I am over stating the danger?

Pakistan's Ambassador Zamir Akram, speaking on behalf of the Organization of the Islamic Conference, made it clear that they understand the resolution and its protection against religious stereotyping as allowing free speech to be trumped by anything that defames or negatively stereotypes religion. The idea of protecting the human rights "of religions" instead of individuals is a favorite of those countries that do not protect free speech and which use religion--as defined by government--to curtail it.

Next step? The government shutting down all criticism of Islam.


We need to impeach Obama. His allowing this is all the evidence we need.
