We're just starting to see why the Trump regime denied UN and Red Cross inspections of our "humanitarian detention centers" and withdrew from the international council on human rights.

Shameful

A dark shadow is cast over north america by the rise of mainstream neofascism.

Exactly what he should do. We aren't beholden to outside organizations and should not let them get anywhere near us on anything. Another Trump win.

Yeah, who needs international standards for human rights? Certainly not the christofascist USA. The supreme leader will determine what is right and wrong, and his loyal sheep will follow.

This allows rogue soldiers who kill people without abiding by the rules of engagement to go from the exception to the rule. You show your true colors when you advocate for this.

Good news is we fit in with our remaining allies, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, and Russia.

Fox watching the henhouse!!
Consider the current members of the Council: Venezuela, where President Nicolas Maduro has strangled the political opposition and free speech; the Philippines, where President Rodrigo Duterte's policies have resulted in extrajudicial killings of suspected drug dealers; Ethiopia, where a state of emergency in place since February gives the government draconian powers that it wields liberally; Cuba, where the idea of human rights have been discarded for decades; Hungary, where Prime Minister Viktor Orban's policies have targeted the media, the opposition, civil-society groups, and immigrants; Saudi Arabia, where widespread abuses and arbitrary arrests continue; China, which has long stifled dissent; and Egypt, which has effectively banned any criticism of the government.
Amid this, the U.S. departure was not unexpected. Last year Haley said that unless there were changes within the Council, the U.S. would "pursue the advancement of human rights outside of the Council." She repeated those remarks Tuesday, noting: "For too long, the Human Rights Council has been a protector of human rights abusers."

The General Assembly today elected 18 States to the Human Rights Council, the United Nations body responsible for promoting and protecting all human rights around the globe.

By secret ballot, the Assembly elected Argentina, Austria, Bahamas, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Bulgaria, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Czechia, Denmark, Eritrea, Fiji, India, Italy, Philippines, Somalia, Togo and Uruguay. All 18 members will serve three-year terms beginning on 1 January 2019.

Who cares? It is a propaganda group that is anti-American and Anti Israel. We should have no part of it. Should have been done years ago.
