Tarnished Nobel Peace Prize and the Nominees
February 15, 2021
Most people think the Nobel Prize is given to the most accomplished person in various categories; however, they are wrong. The Prize Committee has disgraced, discredited, and despoiled itself over the years in carelessly awarding the prize to misfits, mass murderers, incompetents, and jerks. Because of that, the Prize has lost its luster in recent years. However, the $1 million award along with the $10,000 gold medal ain’t nothing to sneeze at.
The four most famous (or infamous) nominees for 2021 are Stacey Abrams, Black Lives Matter, Greta Thunberg, and Donald Trump - his second nomination. Trump has as much chance winning as getting kicked by a snake in Time’s Square even though he led America to the greatest economy in its history, brought an end to wars in the Middle East, and moved the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. Additionally, he kept his promise to slash regulations and lower taxes.
With Abrams, Thunberg, and BLM fanatics, the Nobel Prize has become a frivolous farce for famous fakers. If the Prize Committee gives a standing ovation for such paragons of mediocrity, what will they do when they meet worthy nominees?
It seems everything has been dumbed down.
Shortly after being elected President, Obama was given the Nobel Prize for doing—well, for breathing. Even some honest liberals (a vanishing breed) were embarrassed with that fiasco. Obama’s acceptance of the Nobel Prize was like putting whipped cream on a rotten onion since he was and is an “empty suit.” He may be the least qualified person to be nominated and receive the formerly prestigious award.
When Alfred Nobel died in 1872, he left his fortune to establish prizes as determined by various committees in Sweden and Norway. The professions to be honored for outstanding achievements were physics, chemistry, medicine, literature, for work in peace, and now economics. The Peace Prize is determined by members of the Norway Parliament. So far, so good.
Nobel’s generosity was motived by pride not philanthropy because a French newspaper erroneously printed his obituary, confusing him with his deceased brother. Al was characterized as a “merchant of death” because of his invention of dynamite and instruments of warfare. The paper wrote, "The merchant of death is dead" and went on to say, "Dr. Alfred Nobel, who became rich by finding ways to kill more people faster than ever before, died yesterday.” Nobel was horrified that he would be remembered in such a manner and founded the Nobel Prizes to provide him a positive legacy. It worked.
Alfred grew up in the Lutheran Church and attended the Church of Sweden Abroad in Paris. Strangely, his pastor received the Nobel Peace Prize. No, I’m sure he deserved the Prize out of thousands of pastors of all denominations in the world. In later years, Nobel became an atheist but continued to give generously to the church. Alfred never married but had three lovers, one of them receiving the Nobel Peace Prize in 1905!
Wow, another amazing coincidence! She was Bertha Kinsky, his secretary and lover for a short while, but she left Alfred to marry a baron. If anyone questioned her qualifications (other than being his secretary and lover), one could say, it was “for her audacity to oppose the horrors of war.” Wait a minute if that qualifies one for a Nobel Peace Prize then I qualify for it. Of course, I’m not a pretty blonde like Bertha.
The Nobel Peace Prize is supposed to be given to the person or persons or institutions to recognize “the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses.” Evidence is abundant that the Prize has failed to live up to those standards.
In 2021, the Nobel Peace Prize stands for, well, nothing. The past prize holders are a handful of worthies and a gaggle of terrorists, two-faced politicians, empty suits, and malefactors.
Le Duc Tho, a bloody communist leader of Vietnam, was awarded the 1973 Nobel Peace Prize along with Henry Kissinger. Kissinger accepted the award but Tho refused it because peace had not been established in Vietnam. Was the Communist leader more principled than the peace-making Henry Kissinger?
Others who received the Peace Prize include Martin Luther King, Jr., Mikhail Gorbachev, Nelson Mandela, Yasser Arafat, Jimmy Carter, and Al Gore. An observation: It seems that to qualify for the peace prize in modern times one must be an incompetent, a communist, a terrorist, or a socialist. All right, maybe one doesn’t have to fit into one of those categories but it sure seems to help.
Kofi Annan won in 2001 although he was investigated in 2004 for “improperly steering Iraq arms-for-food program contracts to his son.”
But as one reads a list of Prize recipients, it is much worse.
In 1994, Palestinian terrorist leader Yasser Arafat was given the peace prize prompting a member of the committee Kåre Gudbrand Kristiansen to resign. In an article for the Times of Israel in 2012, American columnist Jay Nordlinger called Arafat “the worst man ever to win the Nobel Peace Prize.”
Nobel Prize winner Alexis Carrel thought that killers, kidnappers, and even big-time financial thieves and the mentally ill should be gassed to death. He also had a leading role in implementing eugenic policies in France.
It was reported that famous Nobel Prize winner for medicine, Sir Macfarlane Burnet of Australia, recommended decades ago to his government that they develop biological weapons to use against Indonesia and other nations that were "overpopulated" in Southeast Asia! This Nobel Prize winner suggested that the Aussies should target the crops of other countries with biological chemicals and seek to infect mass populations with infectious diseases!
Other Nobel winners have been a major embarrassment to the memory of Alfred Nobel such as Daniel Carleton Gajdusek, who won in 1976 for his research in human slow-virus infections. Daniel spent 19 months in jail after pleading guilty in 1997 to charges of child molestation. Then there was Johannes Fibiger who won in 1926 for discovering that parasitic worms cause cancer; however, that turned out to be totally false! The Gold Medals were not returned nor was the award money. And life moves on.
It seems a foregone conclusion that former President Trump will not be honored by the Nobel Prize since many U.S. politicians want to make it illegal to even name a bus stop bench after him.
That leaves Stacey Abrams; however, Stacy is so busy pretending to be Georgia’s Governor, she could not find time to fly to Norway for the big event. But she is an expert on voting. If she is chosen, I will do diligent work to ascertain if she had anything to do with the voting of the committee. Moreover, I don’t think the committee permits mail-in voting nor do they use Dominion Voting Machines. So, Stacey probably should not purchase a ticket to Oslo; however, she may add to her fabricated Georgia Governorship a Fabricated Nobel Peace Prize. By the way, she has never conceded her loss.
Another nominee is Black Lives Matter, a domestic terror group established as an online platform in 2013 by three Marxist revolutionary women who called themselves “queers.” Now keep in mind that this an award for peace yet the BLM organization deleted its “What we Believe” page from its website where it had called on supporters to “disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure.” But they failed to be successful in their deception. Deception, disruption, destruction, and death are what BLM is all about. It is determined to defeat our free enterprise system, distort our history, and destroy our historical monuments.
Standing outside the police station where arrested looters were being held, a Black Lives Matter organizer, Ariel Atkins, justified the looting and rioting — which caused an estimated $60 million in damages — as “reparations” to which the black community is entitled.
Yes, most sane people would agree that the Nobel Peace Prize is tarnished if such terrorists receive the award.
The next possible winner is Greta Thunberg—the angry, arrogant, and asinine teenage expert on the environment. Don’t laugh. She may win.
