North Korea, Cuba and Iran Criticize Canada’s Lack of Human Rights at UN

Here’s your UN Human Rights Council. Enjoy

The moral authority of the United Nations and its supporters and defenders has as much value as the moral authority of the North Korean, Chinese, Cuban, Russian, Saudi and other totalitarian regimes that actually dominate it.

Until the United States does the right thing and waves farewell to this union of tyrants, terrorists and thugs, we will all be forced to subsidize obscene scenes like these.

Obama brought the United States back into the United Nations Human Rights Council lending it whatever shoddy moral authority a Nobel Peace Prize winner who upholds Islamist tyrannies that oppress women and Christians has on tap.

Today’s UN quadrennial review of Canada’s human rights record quickly turned into a spectacle of hypocrisy and farce when the North Korean regime of Kim Jong-un took the floor to accuse the country of “torture and other ill-treatment,” China, Cuba and Pakistan bewailed Canada’s “racism,” and Russia deplored “torture and cruelty against peaceful protestors.

QUOTES FROM TODAY’S UN HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL REVIEW OF CANADA

Iran: We are “concerned on violations of human rights by Canadian government… particularly with regard to child sexual exploitation and trafficking, the right to food, discriminatory law and regulation against indigenous people and minority groups including Muslim and African communities.”

China: “We are concerned by the wide-spread racial discrimination in Canada.”

Cuba: There is “racism and xenophobia” in Canada.

North Korea: “We have serious concerns about continued violation of the right to peaceful assembly and freedom of expression, torture and other ill-treatment, racism and xenophobia.”

Egypt: “We are alarmed by several instances of racial profiling in law-enforcement action and racial discrimination in employment.”

Pakistan: “The increased poverty and unemployment rate among immigrant communities is a manifestation of racial discrimination.”

Russia: “Human rights defenders are alarmed by police actions of torture and cruelty against peaceful demonstrators.”

There isn’t even any point in commenting on this. The United Nations is a sick sad joke. It’s time to turn off the lights, raise the curtain and go home.
