KRudd's White Guilt

Andrew Bolt

Utterly absurd:

Rudd’s statue: is it because we are “white”?

Australian Taxpayers will pay about $150,000 towards a New York memorial to the slave trade as part of Kevin Rudd’s bid for a United Nations seat. 
In the latest example of lavish spending to win votes from Caribbean and African countries, about $70,000 was quietly pledged in December towards the memorial, to be built at the UN’s headquarters.

To make it worse and more cringeing, we’re among the few who think this self-abasing fawning is worth donating to:

But while Mr Rudd has generously funded the slave trade memorial, there are real fears the idea will remain on the drawing board, with less than 25 per cent of the required funding so far being pledged by global powers.

And this excuse simply exposes how craven the whole exercise is:

Gary Quinlan, a former adviser to Mr Rudd, told the UN in December that Australia would provide about a further $70,000 after pledging $83,000 in 2010.

“We need to recognise the dark side of our own history and bring it into the light,” Australia’s Ambassador to the UN said.

“Our own history”?  Pardon?

Top 10 UN-believable Moments of 2010

The Writing on the Wall

From the Gates of Vienna

For many years David Littman has been a tireless fighter for human rights at the United Nations. He consistently demands that the UN live up to what it claims to stand for, and insists that human rights organs apply the same standards to Muslim countries and the Third World as they do to the Western democracies.

Filip Dewinter, Bat Ye’or, and David Littman.

I first met Mr. Littman in October 2007, at the Counterjihad Brussels conference. During his presentations at the sessions, the amount of material he had at is fingertips was astonishing. There was never enough time for him to cover all the relevant information — we had to be content with a general overview of the human rights farce at the UN. His talks revealed the extent to which the United Nations has been Islamized through the overwhelming influence of the OIC.

Another day, another try: UN to Vote on ‘Religious Defamation’ Resolution


Contrary to false media reports, Hamas-linked CAIR is still an unindicted co-conspirator (so is ISNA)

A few days ago I picked up this story from the JTA, claiming that an appeals court had removed the unindicted co-conspirator designation from CAIR and several other Hamas-linked groups. It turns out that the story was false.

The actual ruling is here, (More from JW)

Yesterday it was “Islamophobia, the biggest threat to humanity”. Today its “Religious Defamation”. To gain votes and fool the infidels, Muslims changed the name. How will Obama vote this year?

The Muslim Brotherhood By Any Other Name is Still Hamas- (Atlas)

In 1973, the Saudis created an important arm of Muslim Brotherhood operations in the United States and domination of American Muslim communities: the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT).

NAIT “controls” approximately 80 percent of the titles/deeds to the mosques, Islamic organizations and Islamic schools in the United States, ensuring that the vast majority of Muslim facilities in this country are dominated by pure, Islam, origianl Islam, the most reactionary strains of Islam (more here.)   Continue reading “The Muslim Brotherhood By Any Other Name is Still Hamas-Linked

Elisabeth’s Voice: An Appeal To Save Free Speech

Crossposted From Gates of Vienna & Yid with Lid

A Call to Mobilize the  Blogosphere in Support of Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff

We, the undersigned — consisting of four European blogs, one Canadian blog, and one American blog — have written this post jointly as a public call for our American colleagues to take up the cause of the Austrian feminist and anti-jihad activist Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff.

Geert Wilders is well-known to most American conservative and libertarian bloggers, but Elisabeth’s case is not so prominent. Like Mr. Wilders, she faces trial for reporting factual information about Islam. Her “crime” was to conduct public seminars in which she described Islamic doctrine, quoted from the Koran, and explained to her listeners what she considers the dangers of Islam.

Iran: Bomb Goes Off During Military Parade

Larry King does it again: Most of Mr Ahmadinejad’s contentions went unchallenged as King struggled to adjust to his unusually combative guest.

KRudd gets the UN job he used us for

Andrew Bolt

For years I’ve warned that Kevin Rudd was using the prime ministership as a stepping stone to a top job with the United Nations, diverting cash for his personal crusade. Now he’s got there – but, having been sacked as PM, it’s not quite as grand as he intended:

FORMER prime minister Kevin Rudd will join a United Nations panel on global sustainability, the UN confirmed today

Tim Blair has more.

Meanwhile, back on planet earth:

Fifty-seven more votes arrive for Labor:

A boat believed to be carrying asylum seekers has been “intercepted” by the Royal Australian Navy north-east of Christmas Island.

The vessel is believed to be carrying 57 asylum seekers and two crew.

High compliance costs and interference by Labor kill tourism in Australia

Australia has out priced itself as a holiday destination.

QUEENSLAND tourism operators are facing the fight of their lives to lure holidaymakers, who are increasingly shunning domestic beach holidays in favour of cheap deals to places such as Bali, Fiji and Thailand. (News com)

UN Calls Censorship a “Human Right”

Yuman Rites for Muslims. No yuman rites for kafirs. The corrupt swine at the UN take infamy to new hights…..

by Tom McGregor/Dallas blog/Hat tip Pamela

The United Nations believes that the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) has a “human right” to impose censorship on the media to “promote (Muslim) religious tolerance.” UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon will even hand over funds for the OIC to ensure that strict censorship on the media will be enforced when reporters shed a negative light on radical Islamic militants that include, Osama bin-Laden, al-Qaeda, the Taliban, al-Shabaab (Somalia) and Abu Shayaff (the Philippines).

According to Fox News, “concerns about censorship were raised after the 56-nation Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), which has tremendous sway in the United Nations, successfully pushed through a resolution that creates a watchdog to monitor how religion is portrayed in the media.”

The OIC claims it will enforce religious tolerance by ensuring that the (Muslim) religion is not mocked. An incident occurred when Danish cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed instigated Islamic riots. Yet, the United States and the European Union members on the council voted against the resolution, worrying that it will censor the press and assault freedom of expression.

As reported by Fox, “the resolution now opens the way for the Human Rights Council to select a special investigation on religious freedom to “work closely with mass media organizations to ensure that they create and promote an atmosphere of respect and tolerance for religious and cultural diversity.”

The UN loves to use irony whe implementing new policies. Mr. Ban appointed a so-called “Human Rights Council,” to be the media watchdog to impose censorship. Meanwhile, the UN hires and appoints investigators to seek and punish whistle-blowers and aid in cover-ups of corruption by initiating “sham” investigation inquiries. The UN also hosts “Transparency Summits,” even though Mr. Ban is notorious for hiding internal UN documents from public scrutiny.

UN Watch´s Hillel Neuer Attacks Humanitarian Credentials of ‘Free Gaza’ Flotilla

Give Peace a Chance

[Mark Steyn]

In contrast to the general directions of Helen (“Go back to Germany and Poland“) Thomas, the peace-lovers aboard the Mavi Marmara were more specific:

In response to a radio transmission by the Israeli Navy warning the Gaza flotilla that they are approaching a naval blockade, passengers of the Mavi Marmara respond, “Shut up, go back to Auschwitz” and “We’re helping Arabs go against the US, don’t forget 9/11”.

Such amusing conversationalists.

These are not “humanitarian” “peace” “activists”. These are, in any objective sense, aparty to the conflict. They’re not trying to bring “peace”, they’re trying to help their side win. That’s their choice, and may the best man win, but the media collusion in presenting them as “humanitarian” “aid” workers is Orwellian – and all the more so in a world in which the Turkish Prime Minister accuses Israel of killing children on the beach and in which the doyenne of the White House press corps no longer recognizes Israel’s “right to exist”. NRO has more>>

Aiding and abetting Islamic terrorism while bashing the US and Israel. This lynch-mob of Mohammedan scumbags doesn’t deserve any respect. Stop funding them, now!

Australia to expel Israeli diplomat for killing Hamas jihad terrorist

You’d think they’d be happy that the Israelis took out a Hamas jihadist. But no, it’s all about the passports. “Australia moves to expel Israeli diplomat,” by Rod Mcguirk forAssociated Press, May 23 (thanks to Jihad Watch):


On our MTR show today, I talk with Steve Price about the ludicrous and self-serving decision by Kevin Rudd to expell an Israeli diplomat. We talk about this with Deputy Opposition Leader Julie Bishop, too, who refuses then to confirm or deny that the Liberals, if elected, would also extract more taxes from the mining industry.

No, not everyone in Labor would agree with Kevin Rudd’s wild decision yesterday to make an example of Israel, once thought of as our friend, by expelling one of its diplomats.

AWU boss Paul Howes actually wrote this two months ago. I doubt he (privately) thinks any differently today – and his piece even then warned of the anti-Israeli agitation that Rudd has now unleashed:  against the anti-Israel Labor of KRudd

Birds of a feather, flock together:

KRudd tries to buy himself a cushy position among other empty suits at the UN   (with your money, of course!)

Our aid for Rudd’s vanity

When he’s not expelling Israeli diplomats to appease Muslim countries, he’s offering aid bribes to African ones who may likewise back Kevin Rudd’s desperate campaign for a temporary seat on the UN Security Council:

AUSTRALIA will pump more than $400 million in foreign aid into Africa by 2015, as Prime Minister Kevin Rudd chases a seat on the United Nations Security Council.

Aid funding for Africa will more than double – from $163 million this year – despite Australia having few historical ties with the continent.The rise in spending will see hundreds of millions spent on helping Africa develop better farming practices while thousands of “development awards” will be offered.

But the money will also help promote Australian Rules football…

Nor is that the only cost of Rudd’s vanity:

TAXPAYERS paid a massive $700,000 for Governor-General Quentin Bryce’s trek to Africa to help win Australia a seat on the UN Security Council.

The boats keep coming:

Is this the Rudd Government’s Siev X – and will Rudd be vilified by the Left as a murderer as were John Howardand Peter Costello?

THE federal government knew a boat leaving Indonesia was in peril before it disappeared with more than 100 asylum seekers trying to reach Australia.

When will lefties admit that KRudd is far worse than Howard?

Even Fraser agrees: Rudd (far) worse than Whitlam

Free Speech no longer free under KRudd:

Remember the fulmination of Leftists such as David Marr against the wicked attempts of the satanic Howard Government to stifle free speech – attempts since matched, and more, by Kevin Rudd?

U.N. Elects Iran to Commission on Women’s Rights

Atlas Shrugs

Only in an Obama world could the country that stones, hangs, rapes to death, and shrouds their women be named to the Commission on Women’s Rights.

That collective negation of humanity, the OIC-driven United Nations, continues to shock decent people with their savagery and barbarism. This cesspool of hate, subjugation, oppression, and corruption dictates to the world with the tacit approval of the infiltrator in the White House.

No decent American should sanction our membership in this slaughterhouse. As the leader of the free world (despite Obama’s dismantling), we should pick up our marbles, zip up our wallets and go home. But we have no virtue, no goodness. To distinguish between good and evil is an affront to the wicked. And it is the wicked we have chosen to serve.

The evil of the world is made possible by nothing but the sanction you give it. - Atlas Shrugged, Ayn Rand.
