What do you get from a United Nations committee on eliminating racism with members from Algeria, Russia, Guatemala, Burkino Faso, Togo, Pakistan, Lebanon, Turkey, Brazil, Mauritania, Colombia, Jamaica, China and Mauritius?
You get a condemnation of the United States. That’s what you get.
In a U.N. rebuke of Donald Trump for supposedly failing to reject and condemn racism that fell under the radar of much of the media last week, the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination told the world that there’s no excuse for tolerating racism – and that includes commitments to free speech and free assembly.
In other words, round up the white supremacists, line them up against the wall and shoot them. I guess that’s what they do in Burkino Faso.
You might think a U.N. condemnation would have evoked at least a tweet from Trump. But he was having none of it. Maybe he didn’t even hear about it. His U.N. ambassador, Nikki Haley, has issued no comment on the slight either.
And where were the major networks? Were they afraid the U.N. was moving in on their story?
Of course, Trump has rejected and condemned racism – several times since Charlottesville. Could it be no one in this controversy is listening to what the other side is saying?
But maybe the scariest part of this announcement was that the U.N. committee actually called on Trump to curb freedom of expression, association and peaceful assembly that involves “destroying or denying the rights and freedoms of others,” and asked the U.S. “to provide the necessary guarantees so that such rights are not misused to promote racist hate speech and racist crimes.”
And that call was not from the delegate from Burkino Faso, wherever that is. It was from the chairwoman of the committee – who hails from Ireland.
The U.N. committee acted under procedures that have only been invoked 20 times since 2003, against Iraq, Burundi, Guyana, Ivory Coast, Kyrgyzstan, Nigeria and, of course, Israel – the Jewish state condemned more than all other nations in the world combined. The U.S. was previously called to respond in 2006 over treatment of a group of native Americans, the Shoshone.
Notice that the U.N. busybodies don’t seem to have any problem with anti-Semitism. I wonder why.
I guess some globalist buttinskys got tired of issuing condemnations of Israel, the little Satan, and decided to dump on the Great Satan. Do I have that about right?
So, tell me, again: How much are we paying these meddlers to trash America?
Didn’t Kim Jong-un just threaten to set Guam on nuclear fire? Wouldn’t that be a tad more offensive than blaming the violent scum buckets on, yes, both sides in the Charlottesville mayhem? And why blame Trump? The whole operation was approved by the Democratic mayor of Charlottesville, and the police were ordered to stand down by the Democratic governor of Virginia, for heaven’s sake.
Where are these people coming from? Oh yeah, I forgot. Burkino Faso.
Did I mention that slavery, not Confederate war memorials, is rampant and an entrenched institution in Burkino Faso?
Maybe that vote was in retribution for a 2009 U.S. Department of State report that the children of the nation are most often the victims.
It would seem the people of Burkino Faso, and perhaps a few other of the tin-pot dictatorships involved in this condemnation of Trump and the USA, have some serious problems of their own they should be dealing with at home.
But, hey, that’s just me talking. And no one from Burkino Faso is going to tell me what I can say or can’t say.
