In an interview with the BBC yesterday, Obama again demonstrated his firm grasp of the liberal principals of relativism and multiculturalism:
|But he said while there were "obviously" human rights issues to address in some Middle Eastern countries, the job of the US was not to lecture but to encourage what he said were "universal principles" that those countries could "embrace and affirm as part of their national identity". |
Instead, the president said that the most important thing for the US was to "serve as a role model".
We, as well as Britain, and much of the rest of Europe served as exemplary role models throughout the 1930’s and 40’s. Unfortunately, that was not enough to persuade Hitler not to exterminate 6 million Jews.
