We might as well... we would have to answer a lot of questions about "what the hell are you DOING here?" at the next meeting.

The UN Human Rights Council should - as should ALL our allies - hold the USA accountable for this effed up border shit.




WTF is going on, for the love of humanity!?!?!?! mad

The problem is Trump doesn't want the UN for years now. Bolton either. They are headquartered in NYC and are basically beholden to the US for everything.

If some middle-eastern country was doing what America is doing just now, the US, UK and allies would be bombing the shit out of it.

10 Reasons for the US to leave the UNHRC:


1. Members of the UNHRC include China, Cuba, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, Egypt, Iraq, UAE, DR Congo & other thieves, murderers & rapists.


2. UNHRC rep Alfred de Zayas, ex-Secretary of the UN Human Rights Committee, praised Venezuela & posted propaganda photos to deny mass hunger caused by the regime’s failed policies



3. The UNHRC appointed Idriss Jazairy—who as Algerian ambassador infamously drafted a Code of Conduct to muzzle UN human rights experts—as a UN human rights expert. His reports describe the regimes of Russia, Sudan & Syria as victims of Western sanctions.



4. Saudi Arabia was made chair of the UN Human Rights Council panel that selects top officials—including the UN expert on women's rights—who shape international human rights standards and report on violations worldwide.



5. Not only was the regime of Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro elected to the UN Human Rights Council, but they then rolled out the red carpet for him to address a special assembly & deliver a 40-minute propaganda speech, met by a standing ovation.



6. The UN Human Rights Council has repeatedly reelected & honored its longest-serving official Jean Ziegler, co-founder and 2002 recipient of the "Muammar Qaddafi Human Rights Prize." UN Watch was the only one to take the floor and call out the disgrace.

7. For six years the UNHRC had Richard Falk as their "Special Rapporteur on Palestine," even though he was condemned by the British government three times for antisemitism, and by Ban Ki-moon for his "preposterous and insulting" 9/11 conspiracy theories.



8. The UN Human Rights Council gives impunity for most of the world's worst regimes, adopting zero resolutions on gross human rights abuses perpetrated in Algeria, China, Cuba, Egypt, Gaza, Iraq, Nicaragua, Pakistan, Russia, Turkey, Venezuela, Zimbabwe....



9. UNHRC's 2009 Goldstone Commission into Hamas-Israel war hired Dr. Grietje Baars to be their impartial author of key chapters of the report — knowing she was a radical supporter of Hamas & former European spox of the IHH terrorist-backed Gaza flotilla.



10. UNHRC repeatedly rewarded Qaddafi regime rep Najat Al-Hajjaji with key posts, including Chair of the prepcom for the Durban II conference on racism. When some tried to challenge her crimes, an amnesty rep in Geneva flew into a rage and defended her.

But we all know the real reasons why they’ve thrown a wobbly and quit:
1. They can’t handle criticism about Israeli military support.
2. They can’t handle criticism about the new border controversy.

Fucking juveniles. Lame.

the UN is feckless! it should be disbanded or expelled from the US.

No one is coming for your abortion: they just want common-sense abortion regulations: background checks, waiting periods, lifetime limits, take a class, and a small tax.

Makes sense that a fascist country would pull out of the UN, which guards, although weakly, human rights. Israel is a major violator, while we are the major one.

*** BREAKING NEWS ***

after Paris agreement, UNESCO or human rights council, the US leaving earth is just the next logical step



respect for the Donald, a very brave move and long overdue


Trump_Tweet_Erdaustritt.jpg


http://www.der-postillon.....html#more

Washington (dpo) - That's only logical: After they have already left the Paris climate protection agreement, Unesco and the UN Human Rights Council, the US has now taken the next step: On the orders of President Donald Trump, the United States has left the earth today with immediate effect. For the first time in its history, the country is no longer part of the planet. "We no longer want to be part of a celestial body that does not first and foremost focus on the interests of the United States," Trump said. The affiliation of the United States to Earth had been shamelessly exploited by other countries for centuries, Trump said - a practice that is finally coming to an end under him.
By leaving the earth, the USA has already solved several political problems. Illegal immigration from Latin America has practically fallen to zero - making the construction of a costly wall superfluous. In addition, the United States is saving hundreds of billions of euros by withdrawing from the NATO Earth Defense Alliance and by breaking off all trade relations marked by import surpluses. It is still unclear where the journey for what was once the world's third largest country in terms of area is headed. Currently, the US seems to be heading for the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, where it suspects a larger oil deposit. Experts predict that the first extraterrestrial country in human history will sooner or later conquer a new planet with the help of Trump's newly formed Space Force.

don't take the hype with simple unquestioned C&P smile

Jean Ziegler is a fucking great guy. did he also at one point have a questionable stance towards Qadaffi probably for too long? maybe. but just to take one small part out of his CV to discredit him is simply unfair and irrelevant if you look at the complete picture

but most of all in this context... the US is the LAST nation on earth who should critizise OTHERS for their relations with Qadaffi (!!!) or any other ruthless murderer and dictator for that matter razz

The UN is a totally corrupt and impotent organization that stands for nothing honest.

The "Human Rights Council" is a joke.

Not a Trump fan, but I am glad to see us removing the allocation of resource to that pile.

True genius is knowing how little

cool, I see after all this time you are still able to repeat empty Fox talking propaganda drivel just as perfectly as you did years ago, like a good trained parat thumbs up!

but okay, just for the fun I'll take the bait:
since you brought up corrupt impotent organizations that stand for nothing honest, then consequently Trump should resign as POTUS and withdraw from that stinking rotten US goverment TODAY, no? lol
