Obama Ambassador to UN Quotes COMMUNIST to Push New Socialist UN Sustainable Development Goals
It’s official. On Friday morning the United States, and 192 other nations, unanimously adopted the new United Nations Sustainable Development goals. These “goals“, designed to eradicate world poverty and fight Climate Change, include the Socialist ideals of universal healthcare, universal education, universal employment, and wealth redistribution, all of which must in place by 2030.
On Thursday night, the eve of the U.N. Summit, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., Samantha Powers (pictured above), gave a speech in support of the new U.N. Sustainable Development goals where she quoted Communist influenced economist, Amartya Sen:
“I want to open my remarks with a quote from the master, “Development requires the removal of major sources of unfreedom: poverty as well as tyranny, poor economic opportunities as well as systematic social deprivation, neglect of public facilities as well as intolerance or over-activity of repressive states.” This goes to the essence of Goal 16 in the SDGs, which as you know world leaders will adopt within the next few hours. But it was written nearly two decades ago – by Amartya. And, I would only say, I wish the world had come around to his vision a little bit sooner – we could have probably spared a lot of people a lot of heartache.”
