At last someone taking it up to the thugs and bullies of the UN
“…Secretary of State Rex Tillerson wrote in a letter to nine nonprofit groups this week that the U.S. will leave the U.N. Human Rights Council unless the organization undertakes “considerable reform.”
The UNHRC may be the silliest organization in the U.N. To allow countries like Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, and China to sit in judgment on any country’s human rights record is beyond absurd. Somehow, the UNHRC never gets around to examining the human rights record of most of those states and, instead, concentrates its fire on the U.S. and Israel – two of the most liberal, tolerant democracies in the world.
It’s not that many nations on the UNHRC do not live up to human rights standards established by the Western democracies. They don’t even live up to standards written down in the U.N. charter! It’s long past time for the U.S. to stand up to this bullying by human rights abusers who use their seats on the UNHRC to lecture their betters.
The Trump administration is looking at the entire U.S. contribution to the U.N. and will demand reforms across the board. Enough is enough. Finally, an administration in Washington is willing to stand up to the international thugs, the hypocrites, and the cynical manipulators at the U.N., who, as a matter of course, oppose U.S. policies…” Tillerson tells UN Human Rights Council: Reform or US will leave
