Obama’s Peace Prize By Bruce Bennett
If one wanted any more proof that politically correct politics rules almost everything in this insane world, consider the 2009 Nobel peace prize given to President Obama, for what? Being a multiracial? Clearly, he was at the start of his presidency, and had not done much at all. Anyway, the truth is now out about this, for the record:
“Awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to US President Barack Obama in 2009 failed to achieve what the committee hoped it would, its ex-secretary has said. Geir Lundestad told the AP news agency that the committee hoped the award would strengthen Mr Obama. Instead, the decision was met with criticism in the US. Many argued he had not had any impact worthy of the award. Mr Lundestad, writing in his memoir, Secretary of Peace, said even Mr Obama himself had been surprised. "No Nobel Peace Prize ever elicited more attention than the 2009 prize to Barack Obama," Mr Lundestad writes. "Even many of Obama's supporters believed that the prize was a mistake," he says. "In that sense the committee didn't achieve what it had hoped for".
If that was not foolish enough, Bob Dylan was given the literature prize, and he is a musician, if you can call his tunes “music.” The Nobel Prize is no longer noble, but a bit of a joke. But, what isn’t nowadays?
