Obama's simple-minded relativism

Keith Riler
Dumb multiculturalism is the Obama Administration's foreign policy in the Arab world.  From Barack Obama's Cairo speech:

Given our interdependence, any world order that elevates one nation ... over another will inevitably fail.... America does not presume to know what is best for everyone....

Robert Gibb's recent comments indicate the same weak thinking.  He opined that the new order in Egypt "has to include a whole host of important non-secular actors."

It is very clear Barack Obama as yet has no intention of encouraging the higher and better road when it comes to international relations and the spending of our tax dollars on international aid.

At the very time that Merkel, Cameron and Sarkozy have recognized the need to steer cultures into the melting pot of freedom and classically liberal thinking, the Obama administration has doubled down on the cowardice of avoiding an opinion (voting present) and being willfully blind to the tenets of America's greatness.  Of all the great occasions not to follow Europe's lead, this is not one.

Perhaps our ocean-defended borders sustain this weak thinking by mitigating the inflow of sharia-loving immigrants, but a "whatever" foreign policy is no way to advance the absolutes of human rights and freedom. 

If the recent rhetoric is any indication, expect no leadership from the Obama Administration in excluding totalitarian or illiberal influences from the new and developing Egypt. 

As a result, this Administration's simple minded relativism will leave the door wide open for the best organized groups, at the moment the most organized of which is the Muslim Brotherhood.
