Top U.S. Official says U.N. Human Rights Monitor, 9/11 and Boston ‘Truther’ Must Go

21st Century Wire says…

A call for the dismissal of an American scholar who no longer fits the narrative? An obvious choice. What’s less clear is just how controversial Prof. Falk’s comments are purported to be, in light of the fact U.S. policies of occupation and nation-building around the world have been a well-known source of animosity.

Jessica Rinaldi/ReutersA top U.S. official called on Wednesday for the United Nations to fire a human rights advocate who implied that the Boston Marathon bombings were payback for America’s “geopolitical fantasy of global domination” and its friendship with Israel.

“Outraged by Richard Falk’s highly offensive Boston comments. Someone who spews such vitriol has no place at the UN. Past time for him to go,” the U.S. ambassador to the U.N., Susan Rice, said on Twitter.

Rice was responding to an essay that Falk, who is U.N. special rapporteur for human rights in the occupied Palestinian territories, wrote in Foreign Policy Journal. In it, Falk warns against “darkly glamorizing” the Boston bombings “with flowers and homage” and seems to say the U.S. brought the attacks on itself.

“The American global domination project is bound to generate all kinds of resistance in the post-colonial world,” Falk said. “In some respects the United States has been fortunate not to experience worse blowbacks, and these may yet happen, especially if there is no disposition to rethink US relations to others in the world, starting with the Middle East.”

“We should be asking ourselves at this moment, ‘how many canaries will have to die before we awaken from our geopolitical fantasy of global domination?'” Falk wrote.

The U.N. official also condemned President Barack Obama’s March 21 speech in Jerusalem as “a love letter to the Israeli public rather than qualifying as a good faith effort to demonstrate his belief in a just peace.

“The war drums are beating at this moment in relation to both North Korea and Iran, and as long as Tel Aviv has the compliant ear of the American political establishment those who wish for peace and justice in the world should not rest easy,” he said.

Falk said he thought he detected “a few hopeful signs of awakening” in Americans asking whether policies like targeted assassination using drones might be turning other peoples against the United States.

    The idiotic “blow-back” theory is bona fide “Liberal” Psyop meant to reinforce the official narrative from the “Left” wing of the false paradigm, similarly to Chomsky’s “blow-back theory” on 9/11. Falk plays the paradigm like a typical Commie kook or Leftist Loonie, which means he’s probably working for the perpetrators. Bottom line: controlled opposition in action. Very bad idea for this website to thoughtlessly inflate Falk and his vile kind way beyond their real proportions.

      Yea because it is a completely absurd notion that if we kill and destroy and steal around the world that someone might not like that. How in the fuck could anyone with a pulse deny blowback? If I slapped your mom in her dick sucker your uncle/dad might not like it too much. He may try to cut me with his tooth.


      What and who are you to threaten the people behind this web site “Very bad idea for this website to thoughtlessly inflate Falk and his vile…” are you, some sort of enforcer/punisher type? More importantly, who are you working for?

          Grow some brain? I, who knows not you or the people behind
          this site, was to somehow know that you and they are friends? If anyone here needs to grow a brain, then it is you, jackalope! What’s more, your thinly veiled threat against your “friends” still stands, and as long as it does, you are the troll here and not I…piss off clown!
