    China, Iran Gang Up On The U.S. At UN Human Rights Body

    China, Iran Gang Up On The U.S. At UN Human Rights Body

    “120 countries lined up for slots to raise questions” on “U.S. rights record.”
    Listen to this article

    China, Iran, and a host of rogue regimes have once again used the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to gang up on the United States.

    The UNHRC, a 47-member body that includes known human rights violators such as China, Russia, Pakistan, and Cuba, met on Monday to ‘scrutinize’ the U.S. human rights record during President Donald Trump’s first term. 

    Communist China, which runs forced labor camps for millions of ethnic Uighur and Tibetan minorities, accused the U.S. of “racism” during the review.

    “What measures has U.S. taken to eliminate systematic racism, racial discrimination, white supremacy, religious intolerance and xenophobia?” the Chinese representative asked

    The Iranian regime, the world’s biggest sponsor of terrorism that just last year murdered over a thousand pro-democracy protesters at home, joined China, Syria, Venezuela, and others to condemn the U.S. record on human rights at the UN forum in Geneva, Switzerland. 

    The Associated Press reported the bizarre proceeding, even by the UN standards, staged earlier this week: 

    The United States faced its first review in five years at the U.N.’s main human rights body on Monday. (…) 

    Regular U.S. critics like Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Russia and China questioned and scrutinized the United States’ record on rights as the Human Rights Council gave the U.S. its turn for a regular examination of every U.N. member state’s record on human rights known as the Universal Periodic Review. Allies, too, offered criticism and pointers — if more diplomatically.

    Nearly 120 countries lined up for slots to raise questions in the 3 1/2-hour session that follows up on an August report about the U.S. rights record over the past several years — and what steps U.S. authorities are taking to improve it. (…)

    “The United States has been, and always will be, a leader in transparent, rights-respecting governance,” U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement on Monday’s review. “We don’t simply discuss human rights in the United States; we cherish and defend them.”

    The U.S. faced a similar review at the UN rights body back in 2015 during the Obama-Biden years. President Trump, however, ended the farce two years ago when he pulled the U.S. out of the organization dominated by left-wing dictatorships, Sharia-governed Islamic regimes, and failed third world states. The then-U.S. envoy to the UN, Nikki Haley, at the time of the withdrawal described the UNHRC as a “hypocritical” body which “makes a mockery of human rights.” 

    About 60 percent of the current UNHRC members are “non-democracies,” watchdog group UN Watch estimates. 

    Under the sway of Muslim-majority countries and Communist regimes, the global body is particularly obsessed with Israel. In 2019, Israel was condemned five times by the body, which made up 25 percent of all resolutions of condemnation issued that year. Similar baseless anti-Israel resolutions have been passed at the UNHRC and other UN fora this year as well. 

    While the UN body has been busy targeting the U.S. and Israel, it has been silent on the biggest human rights abuser: Communist China. No resolutions have been passed on forced labor, mass deportations, and treatment of dissidents in Xinjiang, Tibet, and elsewhere in China.  

    Recent news reports even suggest disturbing collusion between the UN rights body and Communist China. Last week, a whistleblower accused UNHRC officials of passing on information about Chinese dissidents to Beijing.

    “China then uses the information that the UN provides them, to harass human rights activists and their families – often accusing them of terrorism and worse,” Israel’s TV network i24New reported.

    Why are we still in the UN? Throw them out, give the land back to the Rockefellers, and call it a day.

    Those countries sound like they got the idea from BLM

    I notice that none of them have the guts to propose expelling us for being sooooo bad.

    They smell the blood in the water.

      Figurative, maybe. What they really smell is the stench of a corrupt politician headed to the White House, one who has already shown he is willing to bend the law in order to profit himself. Starting a Biden term off with a blistering attack on US human rights (by the worst violators, but we’ll ignore that for now) will put whatever flunky Biden installs as ambassador on immediate defense, and pressure them to ‘do something’

      Of course, the list of ‘somethings’ will be long and slanted hard Left: return to the Paris accord, lift all sanctions on Iran, move the US embassy in Israel back, billions of dollars sent to whatever front organizations they have set up, etc…

    Selective-child, right? Diversity, a color judgment, affirmative discrimination, too. Political congruence (“=”), social justice (e.g. elective coups, elective wars), social progress (e.g. catastrophic anthropogenic immigration reform), progressive prices (e.g. Obamacares), witch hunts, warlock trials, and protests (founded on false premises).
