WTF? United Nations Human Rights Council Now Includes VENEZUELA

Written by Wes Walker on October 18, 2019

Seriously? Can someone please remind us why we have anything at all to do with the UN again?

It’s crap like THIS that shows how right we were to pull out of the UNHRC in the first place.

Here’s Nikki Haley a little more than a year ago. (Note the nations she mentions):

In a statement given alongside Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Haley derided the Human Rights Council as biased and counterproductive to the cause of human rights.

“Human rights abusers continue to serve on, and be elected to, the council,” Haley said. “The world’s most inhumane regimes continue to escape its scrutiny, and the council continues politicizing scapegoating of countries with positive human rights records in an attempt to distract from the abusers in its ranks.”

“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,” she continued, “the council ceases to be worthy of its name.

They failed to do anything about Venezuela when we were still part of it. How about now. Did they take any lessons from our pulling out?

Of course not… they doubled down.

There is a new cast of members in the UNHRC now. They gave us a handy list.

Here is the how the Human Rights Council will look, as of 1 January 2020:
African States

Angola, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Eritrea, Libya, Mauritania, Namibia, Nigeria, Senegal, Somalia, Sudan, Togo

Asia-Pacific

Afghanistan, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Fiji, India, Indonesia, Japan, Marshall Islands, Republic of Korea Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Qatar

Eastern Europe

Armenia, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, Ukraine

Latin American and Caribbean States

Argentina, Bahamas, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela

Western Europe and other States

Australia, Austria, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain

Not only did they fail to mention the abuses of Venezuela, but they actually welcomed Venezuela into the UNHRC — despite the fact that much of the world doesn’t even recognize Maduro as the legitimate governmental authority in the country he has commandeered.

Can we be ready now to call the UN a failed experiment?

That’d be great.

We The People wanted a ‘new sheriff’ in town to change the direction the nation was taking and put the DC swamp rats in their place. So we elected one.

He’s made some solid progress already. Massively cutting Red Tape, and cutting taxes was a good start. Breaking the back of ISIS and bringing our trade partners to the table, was good too.

But there’s still plenty of work to be done in setting things straight in Washington.

And Trump is exactly the right guy for the job.
