United Nations Bans Song for Criticizing Tyrants

The United Nations will tolerate many things (child rape, corruption, socialist thuggery, scientific fraud, Islamofascism, over the top demagoguery, etc.), but criticizing tyrants goes over the line:
    The dreams of dozens of Norwegian girls ended in disenchantment on Saturday when organizers axed part of their show at the UN General Assembly in New York, citing concerns over lyrics listing some of history’s worst tyrants.

    The 46 members of the Norwegian Girls Choir had long looked forward to performing their song about war and peace at the General Assembly Hall, newspaper Aftenposten reports.

    But the girls, aged 12 to 19, never got to realize their ambition after the organizers of the Rhythms of One World Festival took fright on hearing the choir sound-check.

    As conductor Anne Karin Sundal-Ask worked out some of the details for the stage show with a lighting technician, the choir shrieked out the names of infamous tyrants from Hitler and Mussolini to Quisling, Stalin, Lenin, Castro, Tito, Maria Antoinette and Papa Doc.

    “The mood changed quickly at that point and they wanted a list of all the names,” Sundal Ask told the newspaper.

    The choir leader said she was willing to compromise and remove some of the names but the organizers at the Friendship Ambassadors Foundation eventually told her the girls were not going to be allowed to perform the piece.

The award-winning song has been performed all over the world. Gasps composer Maja Ratkje,      “As far as I’m aware, this is the first time my art has been censored.”

If you want your music to be performed at the UN, be sure to limit criticisms to rhetorical rotten tomatoes hurled at the USA and Israel.

I wouldn't have put Marie Antoinette's name among such obvious tyrants!

The UN represents America's weakness. First because we tolerate it. Second, because we support it financially to the tune of tens-of-Billions every year, most of which we have no clue as to where it goes. And third, because we abide by it's anti-American nonsense.

Of course the U.N. won't allow those names to be mentioned. Most of them are people the U.N. supported.

I wasn't aware that Marie Antoinette was a tyrant.

In Russia's Bolshevik revolution, the first symbolic shot of significance was fired from the Aurora. Search Bolshevik revolution Aurora. Port Arthur gets a mention.

Has a dyed in the wool 'red', a 'joker', fired the symbolic first shot on a Dark Knight in 2012, the first of many to come, in America's 'Bolshevik' revolution.

The Crypsis is designed to mock the ignorance of those it intends to destroy.
It did not have to happen in this way, but it likely will as it always does.

And also Marie Antoinette never said that the starving Parisians should eat cake if they had no bread (or at least she wasn't the first to say it).
Nor was she a "tyrant" only a seemingly passive and indifferent observer of the inequalities and injustices of the country she came to from Austria to be their eventual queen.

The song would have met UN approval had it mentioned Golda Meir, Benjamin Netanyahu or any other Jewish leader.

The UN is the one of the main reasons for the decline of civilization.
