Norwegian Hanne Nabintu Herland rips Committee for left-wing bias
Donald Trump for Nobel Peace Prize!
Simply by pulling U.S. forces out of Syria, the work to end the North Korean crisis and the efforts to end the Kashmir crisis, President Donald Trump is a far more worthy Nobel Peace Prize winner than Barack Obama ever was. He received the Nobel in the midst of escalating the war in Afghanistan, days after taking office. It was a scandal and a strong signal that the Norwegian Nobel Committee is politically rigged. Obama had done nothing to fulfill the Alfred Nobel requirements for the Prize.
The Norwegian Nobel Committee has become notorious for almost solely giving the prize to the liberal U.S. media favorites, disregarding the will of Alfred Nobel.
In Sweden, Alfred Nobel’s family is rattling the sabers in discontentment of the rampant politization in the hands of the Norwegians, the claim being that the Committee willfully disregards Nobel’s will and awards the prize to human rights activists, climate activists and others. The Committee members are also criticized for misusing it as a political tool to influence countries’ domestic policies. Nobel’s family members openly suggest that the prize should be returned to Sweden.
Alfred Nobel’s will clearly states that the Peace Prize is to be “annually awarded to the person who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations and the abolition or reduction of standing armies and the formation and spreading of peace congresses … advocates of peace, have conferred the greatest benefit on mankind, the most worthy shall receive the prize.”
Family member and professor Michael Nobel especially criticized the award given to the Chinese Liu Xiaobo in 2010. He stated: “Alfred Nobel’s will from 1895 clearly states that the prize was to go to peace-makers, defined as persons who worked to prevent wars through fraternity, that is through global work for the disarmament of nations based on global justice and institutions. Still, the Nobel Committee has the past 10 years on purpose disregarded Nobel’s will and chosen Prize winners from their own preferences. Human rights activists, climate activists and a long list of others have been given the prize, even if their work does not lay within Alfred Nobel’s specific vision of peace bringing, as stated in his will.”
Dr. Daniel W. Drezner recently wrote an open letter to the Nobel Committee in the Washington Post, stating that the Norwegian system is rigged. Trump is fully aware of the politization and tweets: “I think I’m going to get a Nobel Prize for a lot of things, if they gave it out fairly, which they don’t.”
I assert that Donald Trump is by far the most worthy candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize 2019. President Trump was a notable peacemaker in the North Korea crisis, which implied nuclear threats, and succeeded in averting an escalation; his repeated effort to halt the Syria war and now pullout has led to avoiding an all-out world war. His work to end the relentless neocon aggression on Russia is highly admirable as we now are all post Russia-gate, which turned out to be a hoax. Or an attempted coup, as director Chris Farrell of Judicial Watch asserted in a “Herland Report” TV show.
But will Trump get the prize in the current climate where the Norwegian Committee, with leaders that hardly speak English, with members lacking broad international experience, stuck in their ignorant Oslo bubble where the only respected view to have is the progressive, extreme leftist one? I say this as a Norwegian with long experience in participating in its media: The Norwegian press is completely and utterly submerged in outdated left-wing propaganda to a degree that reminds us more of the Soviet Union than anything else. They are so controlled and blind to reality that they don’t even understand it themselves.
Totally sold to the narrative of the owners of CNN and New York Times, the Committee has the past years reduced itself to no more than an extended wing of the endless war-wishing, American neocon movement. It is a shocking scandal. The Prize goes to 15-year-olds from Bangladesh or the forests of Congo rather than to world leaders who have averted world wars.
I would assume this year’s winner to be the 16-year-old media puppet pushed by billionaires to “end investment in oil and create a world energy shortage,” which we might assume they later will profit from. Greta Thunberg is now publicly subjected to child abuse with no objections from her parents. Again, Dr. Drezner: “I hope you stupid Europeans can read good English and accept this nomination and act fast to award President Trump the Nobel.”
