Well, Nikki Haley has definitely left the building.
Jeane Kirkpatrick and Daniel Moynihan too, for those of you who remember.
Biden UN Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield believes the United States has some explaining to do before it asks other countries to stop killing their own people.
“When we raise issues of equity and justice at the global scale, we have to approach them with humility,” Thomas-Greenfield said. “We have to acknowledge that we are an imperfect union and have been since the beginning,” she said. “I’ve seen for myself how the original sin of slavery weaved white supremacy into our founding documents and principles.”
No one wants to minimize the sin of slavery. But you get what’s going on here. The United States is fundamentally racist, and we have no business thinking this country is better than others.
The UN ambassador is agreeing with the argument by the Chineses communists, who say we shouldn’t talk about their horrendous oppression of their own people because we had slavery in our country.
It’s the Barack Obama approach. “I believe in American exceptionalism,” Obama said on one of his trips to Europe. “Just as I suspect that Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism.”
It’s all relative, you know?
