UN Official Attacks the United States
Friday, June 09, 2006
(SNN New York) The anti-American United Nations is at it again. The Deputy Secretary-General, Mark Malloch Brown spoke out publically against two of the most treasured institutions, Rush Limbaugh and Fox News.
Mallock Brown claimed that "much of the public discourse that reaches the U.S. heartland has been largely abandoned to its loudest detractors such as Rush Limbaugh and FOX News."
In turn, Bolton proclaimed Mallock Brown's statement "anti-American speech" and the "worst mistake by a senior U.N. official that I have seen." And in a way, Bolton is correct, because Limbaugh lives in Florida, which is almost a part of America, and Fox News is run by an Australian, who at least speaks English, unlike those other foreign people at the U.N.
It is so completely inappropriate that someone from the UN would call Limbaugh a detractor. Perhaps Limbaugh is right when he says, "the whole organization is so corrupt, the UN, I mean."
In trying to prove that he would never try to detract from the UN, John Gibson of Fox News sums it up as, "the American people are not the problem. The U.N. is." Gibson also points out that he wrote a book to document "the anti-Americanism rampant among 190 countries at the United Nations." Gibson concludes defending himself as not being a UN detractor by saying, "this is a flawed institution that has yet to prove itself to many in the American public — me included."
Other Fox News personalities have shown a fair hand to the UN. In the Hannity and Colmes show entitled "Can we Trust the U.N. to Handle the Tsunami Relief Efforts?", Hannity allowed the Bill Orme of the UN Development program to explain why the UN was "a corrupt organization that has shown itself frequently to be both anti-American and anti-Semitic."
