President Obama loves a juicy world stage to insult America, undermine it's values and integrity and advance his progressive/socialist agenda for America. An underrated highlight to one of President Obama’s many efforts to sell out America occurred on March 31, 2009, two months into his administration, when his administration decided to seek a seat on the United Nation’s new, so-called, Human Rights Council. This Council is comprised of human rights violators, advances a collectivist worldview and provides special protections to Islamic law.
- Human Rights Violators on the Council: despite well-known and extensively documented histories of repression and violation of basic human rights, Algeria, Angola, Azerbaijan, Cameroon, China, Cuba, Egypt, Pakistan, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and Tunisia were elected to seats on the Council in its first two years of operation.
- Ignoring Iran and Uzbekistan Human Rights Violations: the Council decided to discontinue consideration of the human rights violations in Iran and Uzbekistan and to eliminate the focus on Belarus and Cuba, despite extensive evidence of ongoing human rights violations in all of those countries.
- Singling out Israel: like its predecessor the Commission, the U.N.’s Human Rights Council has repeatedly singled out Israel for condemnation. The Council has focused on criticizing Israel, condemning it in 19 separate resolutions and decisions, while ignoring human rights abuses committed by Hamas and Hezbollah. No other country—not even noted human rights violators like Burma, China, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, or Sudan—has received a fraction of the criticism or attention that the Council has focused on Israel.
- Intimidation Rules: the Council adopted new rules and procedures, including a new “Code of Conduct,” to intimidate independent experts.
"this resolution constitutes a dangerous threat to free speech everywhere. It would ban any perceived offense to Islamic sensitivities as a "serious affront to human dignity" and a violation of religious freedom, and would pressure U.N. member states, at the "local, national, regional and international levels", to erode free speech guarantees in their "legal and constitutional systems." It's an Orwellian text that distorts the meaning of human rights, free speech, and religious freedom, and marks a giant step backwards for liberty and democracy worldwide."
But, of course, sharia law gives no quarter to the international legal definition of defamation when it comes to protecting any challenge to the Islamic faith. Unfortunately, on March 25, 2010, this resolution to protect any challenge solely to Islam was passed by the United Nations Human Rights Council.
"Take the report's contention that "work remains to meet our goal of ensuring equality before the law" — a human right, to be sure. The supposed evidence is that unemployment is higher among blacks and Hispanics; there are racial and ethnic disparities in home ownership rates; and "whites are twice as likely as Native Americans to have a college degree." But those are socio-economic inequalities owing to many factors, not inequalities before the law."
“Simply put, it is downright offensive that the U.S. State Department included the State of Arizona and S.B. 1070 in a report to the United Nations Council on Human Rights, whose members include such renowned human rights “champions” as Cuba and Libya. Apparently, the federal government is trying to make an international human rights case out of S.B. 1070 on the heels of already filing a federal court case against the State of Arizona. The idea of our own American government submitting the duly enacted laws of a State of the United States to “review” by the United Nations is internationalism run amok and unconstitutional.”
