Biden Begs the UN to Lecture Americans on Racism and Human Rights

AMAC Exclusive by Seamus Brennan

Biden

In a move that further highlights the Biden administration’s warped vision of America, along with its zealous commitment to the tenets of Critical Race Theory, the State Department recently announced that it intends to issue a formal invitation to the United Nations to advise the United States on its “shortcomings” in the realms of “human rights” and “systemic racism.” Following months of foreign policy missteps and diplomatic humiliations, this invitation is the latest indication that President Biden’s international relations strategy is rooted in weakness, aimed at redefining American identity, and ultimately antithetical to American interests at home and abroad.

In a recent statement from July 13, Secretary of State Antony Blinken gave notice that the United States “intends to issue a formal, standing invitation to all UN experts who report and advise on thematic human rights issues.” According to the statement, the Department has already contacted the UN Special Rapporteurs – a title given to so-called “experts” to whom the UN gives special investigatory missions – to explore “contemporary forms of racism” and “minority issues,” including within the United States. Blinken went on to say that he “urge[s] all UN member states to join the United States in this effort, and confront the scourge of racism, racial discrimination, and xenophobia.” Blinken also noted that this effort was being undertaken as part of an effort to “strengthen our democracy” and “give new hope and motivation to human rights defenders across the globe.”

In the same statement, Blinken also celebrated the UN Human Rights Council’s (UNHRC) adoption of a resolution to create a panel to address “systemic racism” in law enforcement. The resolution was presented by former President of Chile Michelle Bachelet, the UN’s High Commissioner for Human Rights and a member of the Socialist Party of Chile, whose views on race are largely in sync with Critical Race Theory advocates.

Under President Trump, the United States withdrew from the UNHRC, citing its “disproportionate focus” on criticizing nations like Israel rather than other member countries that clearly violate human rights. “If the Human Rights Council is going to attack countries that uphold human rights and shield countries that abuse human rights, then America should not provide it with any credibility,” former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley said in 2018.

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo issued a statement in June of 2020 on the UNHRC that echoed Haley’s comments and directly countered Blinken’s recent announcement. The Council, Pompeo wrote, “has long been and remains a haven for dictators and democracies that indulge them.” He concluded: “If the Council were honest, it would recognize the strengths of American democracy and urge authoritarian regimes around the world to model American democracy and to hold their nations to the same high standards of accountability and transparency that we Americans apply to ourselves.”

The Biden administration quickly reversed the Trump withdraw, reentering the Council just weeks after Biden took office.

Upon introducing her resolution, Bachelet insisted there exists “an urgent need to confront the legacies of enslavement, the trans-Atlantic slave trade, colonialism and successive racially discriminatory policies and systems, and to seek reparatory justice.” Though the resolution purports that the panel will investigate alleged systemic racism on an international level, it refers to the 2020 death of George Floyd several times, suggesting that in the eyes of the United Nations, the United States faces a more severe problem with racism than other countries and will be a focal point of the panel’s work.

Yet, as has been consistent with the UN’s handling of so-called “human rights” issues for much of its existence, this initiative is steeped in hypocrisy. The UNHRC, which is tasked with enforcing the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, includes countries like China, Cuba, Russia, and Venezuela, all of which have miserable records on human rights.

Communist regimes such as China’s and Cuba’s killed an estimated 100 million people in the last century, some of the greatest mass murder in history. They are in no position to be lecturing the United States on human rights.

In addition to China’s genocide of Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang, the Chinese Communist Party has also used military force to stifle free speech, end democratic governance in Hong Kong, and it continues to threaten an invasion of Taiwan. The Cuban regime, which has for years quashed any dissent and subjected its people to harsh treatment, violently suppressed pro-democracy protests just last week. Hundreds have been arrested, and internet access is still restricted across much of the island in an effort to stop the spread of pro-democracy demonstrations The Russian and Venezuelan governments have long been known for the unjust imprisonment of opposition leaders and movements. Just ask Alexei Navalny, whom the Russian government attempted to poison and subsequently imprisoned for speaking out against the government, or Freddy Guevara, who was similarly unjustly imprisoned by the illegitimate Maduro regime just last week on vague charges of having ties to “extremist groups.”

Blinken’s invitation to foreign dictatorships to criticize the United States is a sharp contrast to the Trump administration’s absolute refusal to kowtow to a thoroughly and transparently corrupt body of the United Nations. Blinken’s embarrassing statement also suggests a sharp departure by the Biden administration from the law and order policies of the Trump administration. In noting that the Biden administration is committed to addressing “systemic racism…in the context of law enforcement,” Secretary Blinken is clearly taking the “Defund the Policy” movement international. Judging by what has been happening with crime in American cities in the wake of adopting such woke ideology, it won’t be long before crime rates skyrocket in those countries around the world that sign on to this nonsense coming out of Biden’s State Department.

If Secretary Blinken actually wanted, as he says, to “lead by example,” he would do well to follow the example of strong leadership on human rights shown by the Trump administration, rather than heeding the criticism of the United States by the hypocritical and anti-American countries in the United Nations who have appalling records on human rights.

I think we all know where the biden administration stands when it comes to the United States of America and it’s citizens. He has allowed all these people to cross our border since January 20th. How many more will we allow to infiltrate our country before we get the guts to fight back? It’s going to be too little too late before long .

We do not need any other country to tell us what is wrong with the USA. We have come a long long way from racism of the past. We need to come together and not be once again split apart by this dangerous game the democrats are playing just for votes and to be in charge of this country. Democrats want to rule like communists so they can stay in power. If anyone disagrees with them they will be punished and sent away never to be heard from again.

This spineless jellyfish, wants someone to do everything for him! He is no more President than I am. He and many who are like him in the Dems are criminals. I cannot stand this man, I never listen to him on T.V. or even look at him. He is a disgrace to all Americans and to other people in other Countries. He has no ability to speak ( never too speech in school?) , and he sure cannot handle the title of Commander in Chief. If we were to go to war I would feel we’d lose due to this man’s inability. He gets his orders from others……not a man at all!

Americans have lost sight of the fact we are not a pure Democracy. The founders had the foresight to realize it was not a good form of Government. We are a republic, and the spineless elected officials we have would be well advised to accept that. All the Communist countries are democracies, they get to vote but only for whoever is acceptable to the party. I think this is the goal of the Democrats, one party rule. I am in my later years and am a veteran. I believe we have been betrayed by our leaders. The Constitution is the only thing which will prevent us from having to learn Chinese just to get a job in the future. Make the officials honor it.

The Constitution is being side-stepped by way of the administrative state (dept. of __) who’s unelected officials write things into law without a vote and little to no legal recourse for Americans. Now, the focus is on manipulating private businesses into bypassing our constitutional rights.

The Biden administration is the absolutely the worst.
I don’t understand why all the charges against democrats seem to vanish, yet they want to prosecute people who don’t “conform” to their socialistic and communistic regime.
They ALL need to go to prison, and catch Covid.

The true racist is Biden/Obama/Harris/Omar/Tliab/Sanders. Lying to the American people, that we are racist. America, Isreal we treat others they way we want to be treated and these wicked Democrats lie through their teeth like all we think about is ourselves. When in reality that is what the Democrats do. What benefits me, myself and I the Democrats counterfeit trinity!!! Look it how Biden/Obama/Harris are sending all these illegals throughout our country on US AirForce planes many of the illegals have covid but these wicked Democrats don’t care as long as the Democrats can steal the vote and remain in power to destroy us. Many of these vaccinations are causing medical problems and even death to people and the Democrats, mainstream media and Big Tech don’t say a word to worn everyone about this wickedness being perpetrated on us. The public schools are pushing down our kids throats lies about lgbtq, transgender, CRT(critical race theory)-that Whites are wicked, when in reality Democrats are wicked!!! I wish that all parents would pull their kids from public schools-the breeding grounds for destroying America!!!

Stop and think about why they are allowing our borders to be infiltrated. What do you really think that they are up to. These people coming across our borders are far from innocent. They are being trained on our own Army , Air Force and Naval bases. And they are not being trained to protect us or our country. People better wake up!!

This is the ultimate Leftist “America Last” agenda, in stark opposition to President Trump’s “America First” policies.

The Marxist American Democrats, are buying influence to bolster their efforts in reducing the US to a second rate country.

Only by shifting the wealth of taxpaying Americans, can the Communist inspired Democrats gain power and financial backing to buy the influence they seek.

There are millions who are waiting for a big payday, and a collapse of American Capitalism.

The UN is a corrupt money pit, always has been. The only reason to have them based in our country is to keep an eye on them. The USA should not be part of, or cooperate with, or give money to, the UN.

We don’t need the UN. They allow human rights violators into leadership positions and expect us to listen to them. They are not our leaders.
