The forgotten victims

Dennis Prager writes really movingly about the unfairness of a world that elevates Palestinians to “chief victims,” while ignoring the murderous horror that the Chinese have visited on the Tibetans.  I doubt we’ll see a principled stand that has the world boycott the Olympics, but we should.  I’m no fan of Jimmy Carter, but he did the right thing back in 1980.

    Geez, Book, if you’re expecting a “principled stand” from the world you’re on the wrong planet – as you’re certainly old enough to know!

    I, however, with no expectations at all from the rest of the world; will do my small part, and not watch one second.

    I would put the Palestinians at number three, behind HRC, BHO who are victims of the “White Men’s Club”. Then at number four is John McCain, the victim of the NVA. So it’s just a matter of choosing the victim that represents your views.

    The Tibetans aren’t part of the New and Improved humanity that socialism and the Democrats were cooking up. So why would they give attention to a non-issue?

    To the Left, the only side that has the power to do the greatest evil is the side with the greatest good. You have little petty evils but they can’t organize together and become as powerful as the good men and women of the United States. Which means focusing in on the US and making sure it goes down in flames first, is such a priority for people wishing to fight for their ideology that says if you have power and earned it, then you are evil, but if you have power and didn’t earn it, like the Palestinians, then you are good.
