Like her counterparts in academia and the Democratic Party, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, Biden’s pick to be the country’s ambassador to the United Nations, is a card-carrying member of the Critical Race Theory School of American History. The woman who is supposed to represent our country before the UN in the best light possible, has made her position on the nation’s history clear, stating that, white supremacy is ‘weaved’ into America’s ‘founding documents’ because of the ‘original sin on slavery’.
One might disagree with her comments given at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, but nonetheless, give her the benefit of the doubt, given the forum at which her statements were made. The problem is, she far surpassed the unflattering remarks she made before Sharpton’s organization, in a speech she made to the UN. Speaking before the UN’s General Assembly, marking International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, read straight from the CRT gospel and presented the “systemic racism’s crowd stump speech.
Has there been any progress in mitigation racism in the U.S. since the post-Civil War era? Not according to Thomas-Greenfield, who claimed that there is “a direct line from slavery to lynchings to segregation to mass incarceration.” Our woman at the UN, continued by claiming that her country, uses the penal system to, “warehouse young black and brown men.” In short, unmitigated racism still rears its ugly head and is very much present in the country today.
For Linda Thomas-Greenfield, neither the Civil War, fought to end slavery, nor any Constitutional Amendments that followed, nor the Civil Rights Act of 1965, were of any consequence in U.S. history.
What a wonderful pick, or representative face to present to United Nations, home to some of the world’s biggest human rights violators on the planet. But our ambassador feels, we must atone for our own egregious human rights sins — the vestiges of which according to Thomas-Greenfield, continue to this day — before we can criticize other dictatorships and murderous regimes.
This is straight out of the Obama school of foreign policy that he enacted shortly after he was president, with his world-wide apology for America tour.
As Caroline Glick noted, “The most basic job of a diplomat—for any country—is to put a good face on his or her country before the nations of the world.” Given this self-evident proposition
