Doing Intentional Harm

Power Line’s John Hinderaker notes the anti-American rhetoric of Biden’s Ambassador to the United Nations Linda Thomas-Greenfield. If a diplomat’s job is to make the best possible case for his/her nation in the forum of world opinion, Ms. Thomas-Greenfield fails spectacularly ... apparently on purpose. 
In her remarks, Thomas-Greenfield castigated the U.S. as inherently, irredeemably evil. “I have seen for myself how the original sin of slavery weaved white supremacy into our founding documents and principles,” America’s woman at the United Nations said.

While bizarre to the uninformed, it turns out Thomas-Greenfield’s remarks were simply her stump speech. She gave the same one—nearly verbatim—at the UN last month.

When asked whether Biden would fire Thomas-Greenfield in light of her use of Chinese Foreign Ministry talking points to attack America, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki scoffed. “Most people recognize the history of systemic racism in our country,” she said dismissively.

Ms. Psaki strongly implies Biden believes there is no positive case to be made for the U.S. and never has been. Electing Biden president has been the functional equivalent of choosing Bernie Madoff as our investment advisor.
