UN To Monitor Polls on Election Day, At Request of Liberals
The right to vote in free and fair elections is an essential tenet of American democracy, protected by the Constitution and the rule of law. And this year, by the watchful eye of European observers, who will step off of planes on November 6 to watch Americans cast their ballots. All, of course, at the bidding of the world’s last, best hope: The United Nations.
Yes, you read that correctly: The UN, such an efficient and incorruptible beacon of freedom and fairness, wants to keep an eye on Americans as they vote this year. So, you know, irregularities don’t occur. To makes sure things run smoothly in a nation that has seen 230 uninterrupted years of peaceful, democratic voting.
This, of course, is the same UN that congratulated Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on his 2009 re-election victory, turning a blind eye to the alleged fraud and irregularities that incited protests–and a crackdown that left 69 demonstrators dead. The same UN which declined to monitor this month’s election in Venezuela, which saw the increasingly dictatorial socialist Hugo Chavez elected to a fourth term. But the American election–now there’s a priority.
