Opinion: Many ‘Human Rights’ and Similar Awards are Actually Left-Wing Political Glorifications

Earlier this week it was announced that NSA leaker Edward Snowden is among the three finalists for the EU’s Human Rights Prize.

Regardless of agreement or disagreement of the methods in which Snowden leaked government secrets and then fled to communistic regimes like the Chinese, it just puts into stark relief what prizes like this and the Nobel Prize have become.

In 2007 Irena Sendler, a polish woman who saved over 2,500 Jewish children during the holocaust, was passed over for the Nobel Prize in favor of Al Gore’s Power Point scare on global warming.

In 2008 Paul Krugman also won a Nobel Prize in economics after years of tirades blaming the Bush Administration for every economic ill.

In 2009 Obama won a Nobel Prize for “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation…” before he had really done anything at all.

Other notable winners include Jimmy Carter for “decades of untiring efforts to find peaceful solutions” (He won in too-close-to-be-accident proximity following the congress authorizing President Bush to go to war in Iraq).

Yasser Arafat also won for promoting unity in the Middle East.

What all of these prizes boil down to is a laughable left-wing bias where these once prestigious awards are given out to figures the left intends to glorify.
