2009 Nobel Peace Prize Winner Hosts the Man Who Has Imprisoned the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize Winner

21 Jan

You can’t make this stuff up.  As we all know, President Obama won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize (basically because he was in favor of peace, or something).  Liu Xiaobo, who is a Chinese human rights activist, and has called for political reforms and the end of communist one-party rule in China, won the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize. On Wednesday night, the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize winner (Obama) held a state dinner for the dictator of China, Hu Jintao, who is currently holding the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize winner (Liu) in prison.  Former President Jimmy Carter, who has also won a Nobel Peace Prize, was also in attendance.

Rush Limbaugh covered this on his show stating:

“So you had two American Nobel Peace Prize Winners effectively honoring the head of a country who’s holding 2010’s Peace Prize Winner in prison.”

I guess the media was too focused on Sarah Palin to notice the irony here.
