Take a look at their membership: Membership of the Human Rights Council
Some of the greatest hits from their membership list:
- Libyan Arab Jamahiriya
- Russian Federation
Also note that this council is used to condemn Israel every time Israel defends itself. It is just a ludicrous organization.
On that note, there is this news:
Click here for story: US admits human rights shortcomings in UN report
Keep in mind this report to this travesty of an UN council comes after the U.S. refused to acknowledge this council for years due to their membership, and their criticism of Israel. Until, you guessed, Chairmen 0 got elected. And note their report:
In its first-ever report to the U.N. Human Rights Council on conditions in the United States, the State Department said some minorities are still victims of discrimination. Despite progress in reforming past unfair policies and practices, the report said "work remains to meet our goal of ensuring equality before the law for all."WHAT?!?
So while sitting members of this council engage in STATE-SANCTIONED human rights violations, the fact that some private citizens of the U.S. are still racist or bigoted means our State Department self reports U.S. discrimination? As if the U.S. sanctions that behavior? We already have hundreds and thousands of anti-discrimination laws on the books. Try to find such laws in China!
In fact, while we are bending over backwards to try and stamp out discrimination, and are the beacon of light in the world in regards to human rights, China continues to engage in forced abortions! Oh, not to mention forced sterilization!
That the 0bama administration would legitimize this council by providing a report, and a ridiculous report at that, while not surprising, is troubling. Over 19 months in and 0bama continues his anti-American reign of terror.
November 2, 2010 can't get here fast enough. And then I will look forward to November 6, 2012 with even more anticipation. Time for this idiotic administration to go.
