One of the things people hate about Americans is the perception that we go around telling the world what they should be. Presidents of both parties have done this for decades, and it’s nice to see Obama continuing in that arrogant tradition. I know… many of you are okay when Obama does it because liberal imperialism is no doubt better than conservative imperialism.
Myself, I have a different view. I think we should mind our own business. As a federalist, I believe one of the most moral things we can say is, ‘That’s none of our business.’ I realize there are exceptions of course. When we see the rise of the world’s next Hitler or Stalin, it would probably be in our national interest to stamp him out before he tears the world apart. Aside from that, I don’t think it’s appropriate for Americans to go around the globe and tell the people of other countries how they should govern themselves or what their social standards should be. I find that extraordinarily arrogant and tasteless.
Emperor-Bama just spent time in Kenya where he decided it was his business to tell the people of another country on another continent what their country’s position should be on homosexual rights. I realize this is a man deeply distracted by gay sex and it may be hard for him to control himself, but let’s get real here. There is no vital American interest in trying to secure a right for homos to poke each other in the booty in Kenya. Honest to God, that cannot possibly be our business, and frankly, it’s an embarrassment to have a President stick his nose into the national winkies of another people. It further confirms in my mind what a poor excuse of a diplomat this man is.
But it’s great of course to see the ugly American return with his disinterest in other people’s values and culture. After all, we got important principles of liberty to advance, like ensuring a Kenyan right to poke hairy booty. That will make America a better, safer place to be, and might even balance our budget while securing us from terrorists.
