The United Nations’ latest sick ‘human rights’ joke

Postby SW RANGER » Tue Oct 22, 2019 3:16 pm

Venezuela just won a seat on the UN Human Rights Council, though it transparently does not “uphold the highest standards” on rights, as members are supposed to.

The nation’s rulers are destroying it.

Food and medicine are scarce, vaccine-preventable diseases are spreading and maternal and infant mortality are soaring. The government routinely tortures political prisoners and, according to a July UN report, death squads break into homes, assault women and execute the men.

More than 10 percent of Venezuela’s 30 million people have fled the country.

Right. And all the sanctions against this country have absolutely nothing to do with them having the largest oil reserves and possibly gold reserves in the world.

Bingo. Always amazes me how we vilify a country, yet their oil keeps pumping into our economy....
