The UN Strikes Again! Utter pieces of trash.

I cannot say it enough times - the UN is a big steaming pile of horse crap. I would spit on each and everyone of them if given the chance without repercussions.

The annual United Nations General Assembly officially kicked off Monday in New York City and the "Human Rights Council" is proving its corruption once again.

Today, the Council is voting on a resolution praising Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro. It is being sponsored by Iran and was written by...Maduro.

For the record, Maduro has been starving Venezuelans and forcing them to pledge allegiance to his regime before receiving basic humanitarian aid, including food and medical supplies. He's also blocked aid from coming into the country for months. Venezuelans are eating zoo animals, cats, dogs and rifling through the trash for anything they can find.

I was so happy when the USA announced that it was leaving the Human Rights Council in 2018, citing its inability to actually condemn abuses and instead prop up the world's most brutal dictators. For example, current members include Cuba, Venezuela, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Iran, Afghanistan, China, North Korea, Pakistan and others.

W.T.F. - North Korea, Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, Afghanistan - leaders of human rights? I mean seriously, how can a single person on earth say that with a straight face???

The only thing worse than a council that does almost nothing to protect human rights is a council that covers for human rights abuses and is, therefore, an obstacle to progress and an impediment to change. The Human Rights Council enables abuses by absolving wrongdoers through silence and falsely condemning those who have committed no offense. A mere look around the world today demonstrates that the council has failed in its stated objectives.

When a so-called Human Rights Council cannot bring itself to address the massive abuses in Venezuela and Iran, and it welcomes the Democratic Republic of Congo as a new member, the council ceases to be worthy of its name. Such a council, in fact, damages the cause of human rights.

Agreed. Nothing of worth has come out of the UN in decades. They are the graduate school for bureaucrats and administrators who do nothing but serve as a shield for the murdering dictators of the world.

Please note numbers 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8. They are despicable in every sense of the word.


This cartoon has always said it most poignantly for me...

When someone ask me about the UN i always point to the fact that the last war the UN sanction for the global community to intervene was the Korean war, they didn't even step in when Iraq invade Kuwait or Iran, when USSR invaded Afghanistan. So it worthless, toothless, and morally bankrupt.

Riwanda, that's all you need to know about the UN.

Got a good laugh out of the mind controlled child crying at the UN today about how we stole her childhood due to man made climate change. No idea wtf she's talking about, but she's only 16 so hopefully she'll break from the sheep dip one day.

People just need to remember who the UN is when they act all high and mighty. It's an organization at least as corrupt as any other.

^This. The UN is probably more corrupt than the vast majority of governmental or international corporations and/or groups.

Yes - I 100% agree. I would have no issue with booting the entire UN out of that building and leasing it to someone else. The UN can assemble in Europe, or based on their recent track record - Pyongyang.

This organization should have went the way of League of Nations long ago. The two entities were failures from the get go.

Please point out why the current nations sitting on the UN HR Council have any right, whatsoever to be there.

If you can do this legitimately or point out where I'm wrong or Run Silent is wrong, I will eat a GIANT plate of crow.

Again, coming from a guy who only votes the way the NRA tells him to. Draw your own conclusions........

I'll still assert that a dog is much more effective in protecting your house and family than a gun. Disprove my theory, I challenge you.
