More Proof The UN Is A Sick, Cruel Joke

China gets same number of votes as U.S. on Human Rights Council

Time to pull out of the worthless, evil-run "United Nations".

Actually, the time was a very, very long time ago, but, hey, now's as good a time as then.

Despite appeals by numerous advocacy groups for member states to reject the candidacies of incumbents Cuba, China, Saudi Arabia and Russia, all retained their seats without difficulty.

China obtained the same number of votes as the United States – which stood for the first time – while Cuba got just four votes fewer than the U.S. and Saudi Arabia only 13 fewer.


-- The number of council members designated “free” by the democracy watchdog Freedom House rises by one, to 23. They remain a minority overall, though, a fact Florida Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, ranking Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, described Tuesday as “inexcusable and outrageous.”


“U.S. membership will not change this grim reality – it will only legitimize the council’s anti-freedom, anti-U.S., anti-Israel actions.”

Indeed. The Soros-Obama Regime is legitimizing evil, tyrannical regimes. Apparently the Regime admires them enough to lend its name to the illegitimate grouping to falsely legitimize it.

The Free World really shouldn't have anything to do with this grouping. It only legitimizes regimes which don't respect human rights and have no plans to do so, ever.
