Patriotism Litmus Test. America vs.

Patriotism Litmus Test. America vs. the U.N.: I could add some things to this exceptional Jonah Goldberg column but he put so much good stuff in it that I don’t even have room to post all of his comments of note. So here are just a few of them…

“…Here is Goldberg’s General Rule on Patriotism: The more negative your view of America, the more positive your view of the United Nations.”

“…America, true patriots recognize, is a nation and a system of laws and institutions designed to ensure individual liberty. The United Nations — a few charitable enterprises notwithstanding — is an expense-account boondoggle largely designed to fill the wallets of kleptocrats and assuage the egos of runner-up nations.”

“…The same people who despise the federal and republican aspects of the United States — states’ rights, the electoral college, indirect elections, etc. — will swoon over the moral authority of U.N. “votes” criticizing the United States. This is like having a gang of criminals “vote” on which old lady they’re going rob and kill and then, looking at the corpse, say, “Well, it was a democratic decision.”

“…Of course, you can think the U.N. is great for America and still love America deeply. Indeed, I have a simple answer to any American patriot who claims that there is no conflict between his love of country and his desire to hitch our fate to the United Nations: “You’re mistaken.”
