DeMint Writes Letter to Vladimir Putin on American Exceptionalism

This week in The New York Times—on September 11, no less—Russian President Vladimir Putin took issue with the idea of American exceptionalism. He wrote:

It is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional, whatever the motivation. There are big countries and small countries, rich and poor, those with long democratic traditions and those still finding their way to democracy. Their policies differ, too. We are all different, but when we ask for the Lord’s blessings, we must not forget that God created us equal.

Yes, all humans are created equal—but not all nations are created equal. Heritage President Jim DeMint sent a letter to President Putin today explaining this idea.

  1. Everything in nature; pasing from the leaves on a tree, a tiger´s stripes… to fingerprints, or each of the billions of human beings, are exceptional. So, defining any nation as an exception, is being overly redundant. Throughout time, one of the American exceptionalisms, has been the ingrained concept, mostly exhibited by the US politicians, of judging the rest of the worlds nations on the basis of American Standards, without any consderations; with terrible results, as Obama´s genocidal “Humanitarian War” on a totally innocent NATION has proved to be. The latter, reportedly causing the physical destruction of all of the public services, over 100.000 Libyan citizen, without including the genocide of some 40.000 Black Tawergha tribe (Historically Libyan Citizen), a crime that has not caused any reaction from the UN and the mainstream media of the world. Unfortunately, to my knowledge, Mr. DeMint has shown no interest in the Libyan Tragedy, Nor the suffering of the Syrian people, while Mr Pootin (phonetically) has been denouncing both criminal/inhuman aggressions on both nations.
