Does he mean like imprisoning someone for making an anti-Muslim videotape? Then yes, maybe he’s right.
President Obama’s love of moral relativism was back on display Sunday in Malaysia, where he excused that country’s human rights violations by suggesting the United States had some of its own.
From his press conference with Prime Minister Najib of Malaysia.
I think the Prime Minister is the first to acknowledge that Malaysia has still got some work to do — just like the United States, by the way, has some work to do on these issues.
Human Rights Watch probably has a list of things they think we should be doing as a government. And I am going to be constantly committed to making sure that these issues get raised in a constructive way.
We have problems in this country. In a free society, there are winners and losers, and sometimes things aren’t fair.
BUT WE DO NOT HAVE A HUMAN RIGHTS PROBLEM. We do not have organized, systemic oppression of people in America. To suggest this is an insult not only to us, but to those who face really such oppression.
But here’s the greatest shocker of all: That I am forced, in this space, to defend the human rights record of the United States against THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.
God help us.
