Boxes alert -- -- of our top stories in just the last hour the UN Secretary General when asked by Fox News.
Condemned the remarks made by the American college professor and UN official who thinks America got what it deserved in these attacks on Boston.
That's a paraphrase but trust me he was close to it.
And officials suggesting that America is still making enemies around the world and referring to -- people killed in Boston marathons bombings as.
Canaries who happen to be the ones the resisters decided have to die.
Joining me now to discuss it David Webb he's hosted the David -- show on series -- -- patriot as Sally Kohn who's a Fox News contributor so O Richard Falk.
Is not only -- -- -- -- tour to the UN Human Rights Council he's an American citizen we're told.
Professor emeritus at Princeton University that just means he's retired he -- there for forty years and now is teaching we're told that it's USC Santa Barbara I think and goes.
-- in his piece talking about the hysterical Boston dragnet.
For the remaining suspect that that live last week and and the pour a little canaries who quote have to Daiei.
Before we awaken from our geo political fantasy of global domination.
-- -- start here with you David.
Say because they refuse to comment on this I mean it's.
These -- got a long history the anti semitism and other problems but this is beyond the pale.
It is history which as you say goes back to the ninety's that we have in current reporting and record on him is clear.
His work with the UN Human Rights Council is a rapport tour.
Princeton is where I'd go with this I would stay it would Princeton and we've got to realize that.
They have chosen to keep an association.
And for every parent that -- your child to Princeton let me ask you -- Santa Barbara and Santa Barbara or frankly look this is not just Princeton.
Derek bell at Harvard.
These professors that they espouse these radical views that are frankly anti American in many ways just read their words.
The anti semitism that comes out of professor Falk it's clear and it's obvious you have been UN human rights -- a sham for one thing we should not be a part of it.
Which we are I want our viewers to know we do we didn't used to be President Bush says -- -- and I know we're not -- -- taken in it in an organization that condemns Israel but that Iran or Saudi Arabia or China on the subject of human rights so we know we wanna stand for what we do a lot of under President Obama that changed.
Well -- here's what was said by assistant secretary of state Esther Brimmer.
When she traveled to Geneva she called -- the esteemed body.
Has anyone ever looked at the women's children's and human rights records of these members of -- most of these members of the council.
Mandatory abortions in China.
That's not a problem for them but.
But Israel they need to be convinced I think because it's always yeah -- -- has added that -- -- -- controlled by the organization of Islamic -- cooperation which explains some of their positions.
That we just discussed but he has a point we we -- -- -- a couple weeks go on his Kathy Boudin.
Who's a convicted murderer triple murder she had admitted admitted to triple murder as part of the Weather Underground.
Thirty years ago kill the cop and two others.
Two cops and a and a Brinks security guy.
And now she's teaching co Columbia Bill Ayers taught at University of Illinois Chicago -- -- also weather and -- still at northwestern university and now this guy.
I'll place UN and hit the money he gets in the traveling does is funded in part by the United -- and it was coming out calling.
Little Martin Richard canary in the -- -- let's let's put this it was a lot of net look at the.
Two things besides the first of all you know what this guy said was reprehensible and actually his history -- reprehensible things goes back way before the 1990s.
To you know being cozy with Ayatollah comedienne and some really.
Awful things and we should be clear.
That two years ago UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon reprimanded him reprimanded Richard -- for something else -- have good job -- that worked.
And that well they don't have power over the and he wants counsel so that that's a problem we can talk about that but also secretary Susan Rice our secretary to the United Nations.
Two years ago also called for him to be removed and again on Twitter yesterday said she denounces his -- -- said she does -- any any true this -- American would denounces negative part of this isn't a ten part of the reason we're talking about this is an attempt to try and you know -- the UN smudge the Obama administration lets be clear where both of those bodies stand with respect to this guy.
Now separate from -- that apple persuaded violated they have no let me -- Megan buy and -- one thing though you.
Talk about actions over words and it's like the UN they write a bully worded letter disposing -- that stops all problems actions matter.
We give them money lots of money we have we can hold some of that we can say we want action we have someone who sits there and does this and speaks about.
Jews everyone basically he's an anti anything that is not in the far far out liar left and we have decided to join this council.
Actions matter and not words a tweet underdogs and forty characters or less does not say anything.
Why -- -- he went into a common council more important things to do than to police say well the multitude.
He volunteering is a long history and a -- -- it loses its right.
I'm gonna take you what do -- -- critical it and regular -- -- -- forecasting that thing you can think about our government should micromanage this one part -- -- you can't get rid of this guy he wants to and his volunteer position.
Would be as offensive as suggesting the president should step in and tell Princeton to fire him as a -- and -- then nobody -- about what you want is -- of this this is where I wanna go to freedoms we want but why aren't we seeing more why are we seeing prince to come out and in the San -- university and the more people coming out and say you know what Richard -- we have no use for you.
I -- I can -- Princeton you have nothing to teach him or Santa Barbara and nothing I don't want my -- to learn anything from you Mr.
Spock look this.
Why are seeing -- first don't you think not healthy.
Just think while a lot of Joseph let's kill -- -- -- came out so people -- people just starting talking about a month ignorance but the other thing I'd like to say if -- just -- Chris and I think everyone right left it's very aware of it which is.
We think we know the reason we hold our country so -- is that we do you protect freedom of speech including speech -- -- Odious and offensive and violent day and and we wanted to I think that's what he's universe is coming -- I want.
You know here's what I what I -- because we've seen O'Reilly and really the past week -- and some who have been too quick.
Perhaps not to the extent mr.
Falk has to look internally to try to blame the Boston marathons on America.
And I'm not equating mr.
-- with Tom Brokaw let me make that perfectly clear there very different man from what I can see.
But this is -- -- that has a Riley up in arms about Tom Brokaw talking about are in specifics are drone policy listen.
I think we also have to examine the use of drones that the United States is involved in and there are a lot of civilians who are innocently killed -- a drone attack in Pakistan.
In Afghanistan and in -- -- And I can toll every -- a lot of time over there are young people come out to me on the -- and say we love America.
If you harm one -- on the on the head of my sister I will fight you forever.
Then there is this enormous rage against what they see in that part of the world you know as the presumption -- a -- united and the port.
And -- our viewers know when mr.
Falk wrote his piece.
He cited comments like that -- -- some that callers may calling an NPR in the wake of the Boston -- body as he was hopeful about.
People making such statements.
A Riley has a very different view where do you stand on the.
If it goes along with what's tallies talking about the track record of the comments made by this man in the associations.
When I was talking about actions -- we should do as Americans it's not.
Let -- have their first amendment rights that sacrosanct.
But we can pull back and so we won't accept this when it comes to deal with Princeton University -- let me suggest -- -- the parents who send their children there.
When you send a big check for 101000 dollars for an endowment makes your -- -- for a dollar somebody from principal call you and ask you why.
And then you tell them you have an association.
Which by the way there -- other professors at Princeton.
-- do agree with those kinds of statements and it's come out before in the news.
So we've got to take action I don't -- -- cut off Sally I don't want anybody's first amendment rights impeded even if it's offensive.
But I will say that we can make it's we can take specific actions to tell them.
That we don't agree with -- and we want our children to be taught.
Not left to right but to be given a true education and the tools to go forward in life and -- absolutely right in -- this on the blame America crowd.
I sit here and people blame the greatest nation on the earth that has pushed and -- really -- and spread freedom has been risk.
Possible what radicals do.
You know I don't think it's calling point it's not blaming America to say that we should look at what ever it takes.
To protect our country and to prevent further attacks and just let's say -- -- -- finished just on Tuesday there as a young boy from Yemen who testified at the -- hearing in congress.
He went to American high schools he said that until the drone strikes all his friends heard about where his great stories about how wonderful America -- And he watched as because there were drawn -- because people were fearing these planes overhead because their neighbors and their loved ones were killed innocent people.
By our drones he watched them turn against our country now I don't say that that's that I'd a distance -- entirely from that's not blaming America.
But I think come on we have to be realistic that there's blow back he.
And there and just just at -- the -- know there is a difference I mean.
A true -- -- of America.
Is Richard -- I mean he's a true believer that did what happen in Boston was blowback it'll only get worse if we don't fundamentally Alter our relations with the Islamic world.
-- on and on he went I'll spare you the rest but mr.
-- you are welcome to come on the program and speak to us directly any time we asked him to.
Through a spokesperson he is apparently on his way to.
Lebanon that worries going right now Lebanon Libya I don't remember which one in any event we'll take your thoughts on -- now on Twitter follow me at Maine Kelly thank you both thank --
