Let’s forget for a moment the Goracle, the UN climate change panel, and Bad Science. Let’s focus instead on the Nobel Peace Prize itself and what a farce it has become for at least the past 20 years. Power Line presents a short list of recent winners, all exemplars of the struggle for world peace and human understanding:
MOHAMED ELBARADEI (joint winner). He’s done such a nice job with Iran.
WANGARI MAATHAI. The Kenyan ecologist peacefully teaches that the AIDS virus is a biological agent deliberately created by the Man.
JIMMY CARTER JR., former President of the United States of America. A true cosmopolitan, he has undermined the foreign policy of his own country and vouched for the bona fides of tyrants and murderers all over the world.
My excerpt of his post does not include the many useful links he dug up for more information on these exemplars of love, peace, and understanding.
And he carries the list all the way back to 1988… so please do read the whole sorry story.
Here’s the main page. For those of you who agree with the idea of state-funded protection for Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the Irish Spy has a cogent essay for your point of view. Scroll down the page to see it.
