Euro-Socialist politico nominates Wikileaks for a Nobel Peace Prize

Seriously:

OSLO, Norway — A Norwegian lawmaker has nominated WikiLeaks for the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize, saying Wednesday that its disclosures of classified documents promote world peace by holding governments accountable for their actions.

The Norwegian Nobel Committee keeps candidates secret for 50 years, but those with nomination rights sometimes make their picks known.

Snorre Valen, a 26-year-old legislator from Norway’s Socialist Left Party, told The Associated Press he handed in his nomination in person on Tuesday, the last day to put forth candidates.

“I think it is important to raise a debate about freedom of expression and that truth is always the first casualty in war,” Valen said. “WikiLeaks wants to make governments accountable for their actions and that contributes to peace.”

*Face palm* Right. This guy is proclaiming to support “freedom of expression” … as a member of the Socialist Left Party, which supports “nationalizing” the educational system in Norway and radical environmental “solutions,” aligning themselves tightly alongside the global “green” movement which, as we all know, is a movement that contains within it some of the most fact-challenged “experts” on earth, “experts” who, by the way, have made it part of their respective missions in life to polarize and demonize as heretics any and all skeptics of so-called “settled science.” Read more on the Socialist Left Party of Norway here.

“Truth” and “freedom of expression” clearly are in the eye of the beholder.

Can’t make this stuff up, folks. Can’t make it up.

    They gave it to Obama after twelve days in office!

    I heard this on the radio, but the details bring down my blood-pressure. He’s just a 26-year-old who thinks that the world reached its apex when he was born. Broadcasting his nominee will probably make it easier to bed a few 20-something idiots who think “wikileaks” has something to do with “wikipedia”. ;)

    By all means, confiscate Obama’s worthless prize and reassign to Wikileaks. At least the latter has actually done something, which could not have been said for Obama at the time his prize was awarded.

    And besides, isn’t Obama the Chief Executive of the major icky country Wikileaks is saving the rest of the world from?

    Hey,

    Here’s a “Freedom of expression” for Assange, Wikileaks, socialists and all their fans: F*** You!!!!

    Now, where do I pick up my Nobel prize????

  5. Paul says:

    The Nobel Prize ain’t what it used to be !

  6. Carlos says:

    Yeah, Paul, used to be that one not only had to earn it by actually DOING something, they had to actually make a pretense of doing something counting toward world peace!

    I’m sure that Assange and Wikileaks are both as deserving of the award as was Algore or Obhammud.

  7. ST says:

    NC Cop – I’d nominate you! :)

  8. “freedom of expression is always the first causality of war.” isn’t norway one of the countries where you can be tried for “hate Speech.” free speech isn’t doing too good under peace either.

    Remember: WikiLeaks was nominated for the prize, not awarded the prize. When he was nearing his execution date in California, someone nominated Stanley “Tookie” Williams, a guy who murdered four people, for the Nobel Peace Prize, ’cause he’d written a children’s book, and hoping that the nomination would somehow save Mr Williams’ life.

    Patterico started a snarky campaign to get himself nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize after hearing about Mr Williams’ nomination, just to prove how meaningless the nomination process is.

  10. Carlos says:

    How meaningless the nomination process is? What about how meaningless the prize itself has become? Obhammud and Algore in the same decade? And all the other blithering twits in between?
