Our friend the Welshman reminds us from his post at Columbia Conservative Examiner when the State (or UN) have a monopoly on force, they have a monopoly on everything.
While the United Nations attempts to force every citizen in every nation on earth to disarm, touting the exceeding wickedness of guns, apparently firearms are preferred by U.N. officials themselves–particularly when their spokespersons are placed in the most uncomfortable position of having to answer questions about Climategate.
The incident in question occurred on Friday in Copenhagen during a press briefing. Professor Stephen Schneider of Stanford University, one of the U.N.’s mouthpieces on the ‘dangers of global warming,’ was answering questions from reporters about the Copenhagen conference. Veteran journalist and film maker Phelim McAleer began to question Professor Schneider on the ramifications of the Climategate scandal.
After a brief exchange that turned testy when Professor Schneider refused to answer questions and interrupted several of McAleer’s inquiries, this is what happened next:
However as the press conference drew to a close Professor Schneider’s assistant called armed UN security guards to the room. They held McAleer and aggressively ordered cameraman Ian Foster to stop filming. The guard threatened to take away the camera and expel the film crew from the conference if they did not obey his instructions to stop filming Professor Schneider.
