Oh no! We've lost our accreditation!

Where the party at?

The World Conference Against Racism 2009 hit the apex of ridiculousness yesterday when Iranian President and Holocaust denier Mahmoud Ahmadinejad addressed the delegates in a speech that brought out killer clowns and caused most of the representatives of the civilized world to walk out. But there was behind the scenes ridiculousness as well!

Following the conclusion of the Iranian President’s speech, members of the World Union of Jewish Students, human rights groups, Students Against Racism, Prof. Alan Dershowitz , Nobel Laureate Ellie Wiesel, and American actor John Voight held a second silent protest outside of Ahmadinejad’s press conference, while others read aloud the Universal Declaration of Human Rights… In a move of comic tradegy,UN officials approached the group telling them “you cannot read that here”. An Iranian group began heckling the protest with cries of “end the Holocaust in Gaza”. The group protesting Ahmadinejad responded with a chant, “no to racism, yes to human rights”. This resulted in those protesting Ahmadinejad’s racism having their United Nations accreditation removed for the remainder of the conference. Security staff entirely ignored the antics of the Iranian responsible for the provocation.

Le grand mechant sigh. But yeah, down with racism! Woohoo. What a joke. What are these poor anti-Ahmadinejad protesters supposed to do now? Do you have any idea how fucking boring Geneva is??
