Last week, the United Nations gave the world more proof that they are utterly useless by appointing Jian Duan, a Communist Chinese government official, to its Human Rights Council panel (UNHRC).
The UN Human Rights Council Conservative Group is a panel that decides who human rights investigators will be from all around the world.
These people will investigate and submit their findings on freedom of speech, enforced disappearances, health, and arbitrary detention.
So, the 5 nations on the panel have a great responsibility and power that will decide how human rights abuses and situations will be handled in the near future.
Information is now coming through that proves early cases of COVID-19 coronavirus were showing up in Wuhan, China, as early as November of Y 2019. And yet, rather than report it and get a handle on its spread, the commie’s buried it. The communist regime silenced early whistleblowers and doctors, punished those who did not follow their narrative, and then lied to the world about what was going on, causing thousands of unnecessary deaths, all of which are human rights violations. All with the backing of the UN’s World Health Organization.
Even today, China is not being transparent about what is happening with the virus in the nation. They are claiming there have been no new deaths in all of China, but reports are being leaked, stating otherwise.
At a time when Communist China has been found guilty of all of the sins mentioned above, many are coming out strongly against the UN’s recent decision, and rightly so.
Among those opposing the UN’s appointment of China is a group of 7 Republican US senators, including Ted Cruz, Marsha McSally, Kevin Cramer, Marsha Blackburn, Rubio, Cornyn, and Inhofe.
Those Senators sent a letter to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres this week to protest the decision.
Their letter reads, “In this position, Jiang will provide China with the opportunity to play a central role in picking at least 17 human rights investigators, including those who look at freedom of speech, enforced disappearances, and arbitrary detention, rights abuses which the Chinese regime routinely perpetrates.”
According to the Senators, these abuses and China’s recent disregard for human life “violates any credibility on human rights and should disqualify them from a position on the panel.”
Nikki Haley has also voiced her opposition, Tweeting the irony of the UN’s decision, and adding, “You cannot make this up!”
House Representative Chris Smith (R-NJ) a senior member of the House Intelligence Committee on Foreign Affairs and the Congressional-Executive Commission on China also disagrees with the appointment.
Mr. Smith said, “There is no justification whatsoever in empowering a Chinese government official, Jiang Duan, to investigate human rights abuses until there is a reckoning with regard to China’s own record.”
And he is right.
He Big Q: How can you appoint someone to judge what is right and wrong concerning human rights, when that same nation has been over their head in those same abuses for years?
The executive director of UN Watch Hillel Neuer is speaking out against China’s inclusion. He Tweeted last week, “No joke: #China joins UN 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 pyromania into the town fire chief.”
UN Watch is a non-governmental human rights organization that is tasked with monitoring the UN Human Rights Council.
“It’s absurd and immoral for the UN to allow China’s oppressive government a key role in selecting officials who shape international human rights standards and report on violations worldwide.”
The UN took 1 of the world’s most notorious human rights abusers in the modern age and put it in another seat of power, 1 that gives them the ability to judge the nations of the world on the same issues that it fails at. NutZ!
Have a healthy happy Easter and Passover weekend, stay home, Keep the Faith!
