North Korea to chair the UN’s nuclear disarmament forum

It’s the UN, so nothing should surprise us. But even the most ardent supporters of this colossal waste of tax dollars must acknowledge that the appointment of North Korea to chair the United Nations Conference on Disarmament is beyond stupid. Over the years, the country’s tyrannical despot, Kim Jong-un, has threatened to launch nuclear attacks on several nations including the US, Japan, Israel, South Korea, Britain, and the rest of the world. Of course, every rogue nuclear nation should have a turn at heading the UN’s nuclear disarmament forum, even if the appointment is only ceremonial. Some have compared this to putting a serial rapist in charge of a woman’s shelter. Breitbart explains: The jaw-dropping chairmanship transition was announced in January and will evidently proceed on schedule, giving the psychotic dictatorship of North Korea four weeks to ceremonially chair the U.N. disarmament body — even though North Korea is under heavy U.N. sanctions for recklessly proceeding with its nuclear missile program. The New York Post (NYP) in January called the announcement “fresh proof of the lunacy of the United Nations” and …

China to be nominated to UN Human Rights Council

In the real world, the last two countries that you would expect to be nominated to the UN’s Human Rights Council would be Communist China and Pakistan. Countries serve a three-year term. Yet, it appears this could be on the verge of happening. And there are even other countries with dubious human rights records that also may be nominated. Breitbart explains: China, Saudi Arabia, Russia, Cuba and Pakistan are tipped to finish top of Tuesday’s election for seats on the United Nations Human Rights Council, prompting disbelief from freedom campaigners and exiled dissidents alike. U.N. Watch, a Geneva-based monitoring group,  said allowing these countries anywhere near the council “is like making a gang of arsonists into the fire brigade.” Saudi Arabia was previously on the council until 2019. Just last month, dozens of nations condemned it before the council over serious rights violations and demanded accountability for the murder Jamal Khashoggi, a Washington Post newspaper columnist who was killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in 2018.

UN deletes tweet criticizing criticism of ANTIFA

When the UN issued a tweet defending ANTIFA from accusations that it is a Marxist terrorist organization: UN #HumanRights experts express profound concern over a recent statement by the US Attorney-General describing #Antifa and other anti-fascist activists as domestic terrorists, saying it undermines the rights to freedom of expression and of peaceful assembly in the country. pic.twitter.com/2Pz2dMyq8k — UN Geneva (@UNGeneva) June 19, 2020 Several responded. Aside from dozens of tweets calling for the US to defund the UN, many took the opportunity to do a “best of the worst” of UN behaviour over the past few years. It got so bad that the UN finally deleted its tweet: READ: UN Deletes Pro-Antifa Tweet After Massive Public Backlash The Daily Wire noted the obvious: The tweet from the U.N. comes after the organization appointed communist China to its Human Rights Council, despite the fact that China has millions locked up in concentration camps, engages in forced organ harvesting, has a surveillance state that restricts the rights of its citizens, and has engaged in widespread discrimination …

UN: Stop using offensive words such as husband & wife

The United Nations, courtesy of UN Women, recently sent out a tweet that people should stop using such words such as “husband”, “wife,” “boyfriend,” “girlfriend” and “landlord” because it might offend some people. According to the UN we need to start using gender-neutral language such as spouse instead of husband or wife and owner instead of landlord. What you say matters. Help create a more equal world by using gender-neutral language if you’re unsure about someone’s gender or are referring to a group. https://t.co/QQRFPY4VRn #GenerationEquality via@UN_Women pic.twitter.com/koxoAZZuxq — United Nations (@UN) May 18, 2020 Predictably the reaction was swift with the vast majority mocking the UN‘s tweet. One woman quickly pointed to the group’s hypocrisy asking why UN Women was using the sexist word “woman” in its name? Of course, the slogan of most elitists is: “Do as I say, not as I do.” Another pointed out the obvious problem that in most Latin languages — French, Spanish, etc — every word is gendered. One professor was actually glad to see the tweet stating sarcastically: …

Useless UN

UN appoints China to its Human Rights Council. No joke: #China joins U.N. Human Rights Council panel, where it will help select the U.N.’s next world monitors on freedom of speech, enforced disappearances & arbitrary detention—and on health. That’s like making a pyromaniac into the town fire chief. https://t.co/DqFY90rd6I — Hillel Neuer (@HillelNeuer) April 3, 2020 And oh yeah, UN wants to impose an 10% tax on everyone to fill its pockets, that includes you and me.

Ancient gods revival?

The same company responsible for building a full-scale model of the Arches of Baal last year has produced a full-sized replica of the ancient Roman goddess Athena. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) used the group, the Institute of Digital Archaeology (IDA), to make a 3-D replica of Athena and recently had it on display at the United Nations headquarter in New York City. Similar to what happened to the Baal arches, in 2015 ISIS destroyed the original statue of the goddess in a museum in Palmyra, Syria. According to UAE, this ancient goddess was “synonymous with reason, refuge and the rule of law, all the same values on which the historic institution was built.” However, this is only part of the story. Athena was also the Roman goddess of war and was valued for providing warfare strategy. The recreated idol actually portrays the goddess holding a spear, representative of her warrior symbolism. Many believe Athena was simply the Roman version of the ancient Canaanite goddess Asherah, that went by various names in different cultures — …

U.N. condemns only one country for human rights violations against women — Israel

This past week, the United Nation’s Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) held its annual meeting in New York and of the 193 U.N. member countries, the commission only condemned one nation for violating the rights of women — Israel. During its meeting, the CSW issued 9 reports, 8 of which were procedural, and one which condemned Israel as the world’s only abuser of women because of its conflict with Palestine. This despite reports, the honor killing of women happens regularly in Palestine and Hamas used civilians as human shields in the war it provoked against Israel.
