Just as Trump looks to sign off two peace deals inside 30 days with UAE, Bahrain and their former foe, Israel, The Atlantic published an article suggesting that the prize should be done away with.
Just how bad does media derangement have to be to suggest such a thing? This is the same paper that wants you to believe that Trump called dead soldiers “suckers” and “losers”.
If The Atlantic wishes to push the idea it is a bastion of ethical and balanced journalism, we don’t think this is the best way to do it.
The journalist, Graeme Wood, wrote,
“Giving the peace prize to no one at all is a tradition the Nobel Committee should revive, perhaps on a permanent basis…Trump’s main diplomatic maneuver is to adopt a lickspittle posture toward authoritarians, promising them decades in power in return for a smile and a condo development. Peace does not mean a web of personal agreements between rich psychopaths…To keep giving awards for the seeds is to court embarrassment, and to make yourself hostage to wacky attention-seeking nominations like Trump’s. Better to shut it down, before the trolls do first.”
How crushing for the left to swallow that the devil incarnate they swore would push the nuclear button is actually a pretty effective peacenik. The Nobel would be gasoline on their bonfire.
