Why Conservatives Don’t Win Nobel Peace Prizes

One thing that seems to distinguish Nobel Peace Prize winners is that they are predominantly on the left, and not one of them is a prominent conservative. With so many right-wing public figures claiming to do good in the world, and so many Christian-conservative missionaries supposedly doing charitable work in developing countries, one has to wonder why not a single one of them has been awarded the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize? The short answer is that only public figures on the left seem to have the compassion and drive necessary to make truly significant contributions to world peace and the well-being of mankind.

When it comes to social justice issues, for which many Peace Prizes have been awarded, the left is inevitably pioneering solutions to them while the right pushes them aside and pretends that they don’t exist. Black Lives Matter, for example, is probably one of the most important social justice movements of our lifetimes, courageously challenging the culture of racism and police brutality within America’s law enforcement. The left is actively supporting this brave movement, while the right acts as if racism is not even a pressing issue in the 21st century, demonstrating again why right-wingers tend to be sidelined during the nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize.

There are also key differences between how the left and right approach foreign policy. When the Democrats engage a country in kinetic action, it is almost always a humanitarian intervention. For example, Obama and Hillary intervened in Libya to free the people from Gaddafi’s reign of terror, and they have been intervening in Syria for the same reasons. Bush, however invaded Iraq in order to enrich oil companies and steal Iraq’s resources, and he even characterized the invasion as a modern day Christian “crusade”, in a shocking display of Islamaphobia. Although their foreign policy decisions may seem similar on the surface, there are key differences between the motivations of Democrats vs those of Republicans, explaining again why Democrats are far more likely to win Nobel Peace Prizes.

Lastly, on environmental issues such as Climate Change, Republicans have steadfastly refused to accept any kind of international deal to cut carbon emissions, while Democrats have been working non-stop to implement measures to avert this impending disaster. Al Gore won the Peace Prize for simply waking up millions of ignorant Americans to the catastrophes that face the world if we do not act, thereby helping to avoid future global conflicts over resources as a result of droughts and floods. To this day however, many Republicans, including President-Elect Donald Trump himself, are Climate Change deniers.

With the left constantly working to tackle the world’s most pressing social justice, humanitarian and environmental issues, while the right continues to promote racism, sexism, unjust wars and over-industrialization, it’s easy to see why progressives are the primary recipients of the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize. I suspect it will remain this way long into the future, as conservatives show no signs of changing their ways. And one can only hope that through the Nobel committee’s repeated recognition of the good deeds of the left, the world will eventually come together and rally it’s support behind progressive leaders, so that we can truly create a new world order based on peace, justice and equality for all.

Conservatives want to “conserve” the old system of White Privilege and Patriarchy — including war, capitalism, oppression, bigotry, borders, police brutality, and environmental destruction. They are the problem. Progressivism is the solution.

Completely right. That’s pretty much the definition of “conservatism”. We need a socialist progressive system to truly liberate the world from white oppression.

It would be nice to see Obama win another Nobel peace prize.

If anyone deserves a second one it’s him. He’s achieved so much more since he won the first one, such as obamacare and executive amnesty for undocumented Americans.

Obama should win also Nobel Prize in economy for his success in introducing Obamacare!

But being left of centre does not guarantee success with the Nobel people. Stalin’s Peace Camps and the millions of anti peace people he “disposed” of never got him the coveted prize.
On the other hand being on the right is not without it’s rewards. Remember Hitler being Time Magazines man of the year? Swings and Roundabouts my friends.

Black Lives Matter

Stalin should have won.

Stalin did win Time magazine man of the year prize: http://content.time.com/time/covers/0,16641,19430104,00.html

I am sure he would have won Peace Prize also if the committee would be more objective!

richandrenee

Nice one drb6. Once again the AT community has shown its vastly superior knowledge of history – you’d think these alt right trolls would save themselves the embarrassment and just shut up.

The nobel prize has lost all merit after it was awarded to do nothing, no accomplishment Obama.

He did nit get us out of Iraq, Aphganistan, and we still have Quantanamo. Thanks for keeping your promisses Obummer.

FLAGGED AS RACIST HATE SPEECH

Not only racist hate speech, but also written by an illiterate, backwards redneck. Aphganistan!!! Probably written by a home-schooled person who has not benefited from our excellent, publicly-financed education!

I just read a little about the Nobel Prize for Literature. I was pretty sure that Accredited Times was in the running. But apparently only individuals can win it, not organizations. And they seem to wait till you get old or die before they give it.

Black Lives Matter

That’s unfair. Literature is a collective effort, just like rights are collective. How can anyone ignore such great progressive writers as Doris Kearns Goodwin, whom the accredited media constantly invites on television and who admitted to using collective efforts to write at least one of her works? Very unfair.

On the topic of the inspiring tetratych that kicks off the article, I did not know that Morgan Freeman had been awarded the highest prize given by the Norwegian soul-plumbing committee. That is a rousing tribute to the power of a serene presence on the silver screen to promote peace on earth. Obama should make a budget appropriation before he leaves office to have this matter looked into. I have a strong intuition that the world has become more peaceful since Morgan Freeman began gracing the canvases and TV sets of America with his avuncular presence. It doesn’t have to be a lame duck month if he doesn’t want it to be. To finish the thought, if my hypothesis is correct: Imagine what devastating conflicts the world would have had to endure in the absence of the Freeman’s thespian efforts to promote peace. OMG, I can’t even.

richandrenee

They can’t give a conservative the peace prize because it’s a 99.99% chance that they’d be a racist. The Nobel committee are far to sagacious to risk the loss of credibility.

There don’t seem to be as many roaches coming out of the woodwork as there are on days when we have articles about getting rid of filthy money, and replacing it with clean digital currency.

Sugarlock –

there is a simpler explanation. As we know, most of the vile, racist, and deceptive comments are written by Russians working for KGB. Since today is Saturday, they are at home drinking vodka, sexually harassing womyn, and singing to balalaika tunes. Expect renewed attacks of trolls Monday, when they come back to work.

Black Lives Matter

This is undoubtedly right. Their supporters in AmeriKKKa also typically attend Klan/Trump rallies on weekends.

Incidentally, this post has been confirmed by the accredited media:

Ku Klux Klan parades in Roxboro celebrating Trump win

ROXBORO, N.C. — A caravan of about 20 vehicles organized by the Ku Klux Klan celebrated President-Elect Donald Trump’s win with Confederate and American flags Saturday afternoon in Roxboro. . . .

Great research. No we know where the alt-right people are today. It’s nice finally having a peaceful day with no insults.

The vile creep who called himself thisarticlesucks was arrested yesterday for a hate crime – the cops may also have found some stuff pertaining to a very unsavory deviancy on his hard drive. It’s unlikely we’ll be hearing from him again.

thisarticlesucks drove me to tears yesterday. I’m glad he got caught. If you are sensitive, don’t read any further, because I am copying and pasting the horrible things he told me word for word, just to give you an idea how bad he was. He said:

I don’t care about your sissy “microaggression” nonsense. I don’t care what you call hate speech. Welcome to the adult world, where nobody gives a shit about your feelings.

Fortunately, some progressive comrades gave me some support to help me recover.

richandrenee

He is in a lot of trouble Sugarlock. We shouldn’t really say anything but our sources tell us that his hard drive is one of the worst they’ve ever encountered.
