BARACK OBAMA AND THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE

Posted by Andrew Roman on October 9, 2009

noble peace prizeYes, President Barack Obama has won the Nobel Peace Prize.

But remember, perspective is crucial. Context is critical.

Take a moment and think about it.

This is the same Nobel Peace Prize awarded to global warming warrior Al Gore and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change two years ago. A peace prize – because scientifically unfounded, unproven theories that induce global hysteria advance the cause of peace.

This is the same Nobel Peace Prize awarded to PLO leader – and murderous vermin – Yasser Arafat in 1994. A peace prize – because everyone knows a lifetime dedicated to destroying the State of Israel is at the very heart of nurturing and promoting peace.

It isn’t as if the meandering moral compass and twisted value set of those who hand out this particular award should be startling news to anyone.

What exactly is the big deal? What is the big surprise here?

Before too much energy is expended by pundits and wordsmiths commenting on the unmerited or inappropriate awarding of the Noble Peace Prize to President Barack Obama, pause for a moment, take a deep breath, and realize that this shouldn’t be shocking to anyone.

Perspective.

Laugh about it. Grab a cream soda. Relax.

Does it really matter who wins this particular award? Does this award really have anything to do with peace?

To be perfectly honest, I’m actually a bit surprised that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad didn’t go home with the prize. He hasn’t launched a single missile at Israel over the past year. Nothing says “peace” quite like not firing weapons at anyone.

The fact is the Nobel Peace Prize – along with all of the other honors handed out by world’s anti-American progressives – is a product of those who believe that the greatest threat to peace in the world is the United States. To them, America is the real obstacle to achieving international harmony and understanding. Barriers like American exceptionalism, the belief in the individual, free-market capitalism, and the fact that America is the most powerful nation on Earth only hurt the peace process.

The interesting aspect of all of this is the fact that the deadline for nominations came on February 1, 2009 – a mere ten days into Barack Obama’s presidency. According to the committee – his lack of tangible achievement or accomplishment not withstanding – the President is receiving the award because of his ”extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.”

That may be the most meaningless sentence never to come from one of President Obama’s teleprompters.

Pray tell, what “extraordinary efforts” could have possibly taken place during the first ten days of his Presidency – and the campaign-intensive year that preceded it – that secured the gold for him?

I don’t know the answer to that, of course – being the war hungry, xenophobic racist monster that I am – but, just imagine if the deadline for deciding who wins the award had been October 1st instead of February 1st.

What might have been?

obama peaceWhat if his refusal to meet with the Dalai Lama was thrown into the Peace Prize mix? What if his standing by, with that deer-in-the-headlights charm of his, and saying absolutely nothing while the government of Iran slaughtered its own citizens was taken into consideration? What if a few more apologies for his country on foreign soil could have been taken into account? I can only imagine how it would have impacted the decision to give him the award. A new award might have been created just for him – the Nobel Prize for Superhuman Greatness, the Nobel Prize for Total Awesomeness, the Nobel Prize for Coolest Demigod.

Of course, Bracak Obama is receiving only one Nobel Prize this year.

Hopefully, the President’s unmistakable achievements in Chemistry, Physics and Literature will be recognized next year.

Still, nothing emasculates like the Nobel Peace Prize.

The real question is … How will this affect President Obama’s decision making on what needs to be done in Afghanistan? Or Iran? Can the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize dare to come across as an Afghanistan surge-endorsing hawk? Or a nuclear-program busting tough guy in Iran?

    Yet another clear example of how the scripted one doesn’t even have to roll up his sleeves and actually do anything to merit his “success”.

      I’m not sure that the President will ever permit himself to roll up his sleeves. There are so many things stuffed in them, he could never allow it.
