Ambassador taken to task for 'kissing up to tyrants'

UN Ambassador Linda Thomas-GreenfieldA conservative activist is outraged that the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations is trashing the country she is supposed to represent.

Speaking before the U.N. Human Rights Council on Wednesday, Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield (pictured) said that "the original sin of slavery weaved white supremacy into our founding documents and principles." She added that the "imperfect union" of America must approach issues of "equity and justice at the global scale … with humility."

The New York Post notes she told the Human Rights Council – and the National Action Network's 2021 virtual convention – that the U.S. needed to "engage trailblazing groups like yours" in order to "improve." Nations represented on the Council include China, Cuba, Venezuela, Saudi Arabia, and North Korea.

Robert Knight is a conservative activist and a columnist for The Washington Times.

"Linda Thomas-Greenfield is disgracing America once again the way Barack Obama did on his apology tour right after he took office," the columnist tells One News Now. "For starters, Greenfield gave her talk to the National Action Network, which was founded by race hustler Al Sharpton and is a far-left group."

Knight is concerned that her message went throughout the world. "[She contends that] America is a pretty bad place, that it's animated only by racism; and that we have no right to have any say in how the rest of the world operates – [that] we can't advise them because we're so corrupt ourselves.

"This is not representing America," he argues. "This is trashing America and using the U.N. ambassadorship to do it. You have to ask why the so-called 'moderate' Biden administration keeps putting these left-wing wackos in key positions that add up to anti-Americanism."

Knight says he agrees with Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who said the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations should advance American interests and not trash her own country by "kiss[ing] up to the brutal tyrants" on the Human Rights Council.

The GOP senator opposed Thomas-Greenfield's confirmation in February, arguing her record shows "a pattern of apologizing for China [and] failing to call out their human rights atrocities and political oppression …."
