The United Nations has now inserted itself into the governing bodies of every sovereign nation, republic, and country in the world. This “world” body has long chomped at the bit to “govern” all nations, especially Western culture nations and republics, through its bureaucratic regulations, pseudo-laws and mandates, upon the world population through “agreements” made between member states to “uphold” their globalist ideology. It is seen through its “refugee” agreement that no member state is obligated to participate through its document on “rights of the child” that places governments in the business of being god by disseminating rights.
For the UN’s International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination on Tuesday, the bureaucracy issued a release that “urged governments” to regulate “hate speech” as part of the strategy to stand up for an individual’s rights. In other words, the sovereign member states’ governments, which includes the united States, are to “infringe” on the individual God-given right of free speech to uphold individual rights. The press release stated the theme for this year is “‘ending racial profiling and incitement to hatred, including as it relates to people’s attitudes and actions towards migration’.” And, therein lies the true reason for the UN to “coerce” the governments of free people to enact “speech laws.”
Governments around the world “have a legal obligation to stop hate speech and hate crimes,” UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein reportedly said Tuesday, adding a call “on people everywhere to ‘stand up for someone’s rights,’” the press release about the event said.
“It is not an attack on free speech or the silencing of controversial ideas or criticism, but a recognition that the right to freedom of expression carries with it special duties and responsibilities,” Al Hussein said in a statement.
“Words of fear and loathing can, and do, have real consequences,” Zeid said.
In his statement, Zeid said that U.N. member states “do not have any excuse to allow racism and xenophobia to fester.”
States “have the legal obligation to prohibit and eliminate racial discrimination, to guarantee the right of everyone, no matter their race, color, national or ethnic origin, to equality before the law.”
According to our Declaration of Independence, our founders cited as one self-evident truth “that all men are created equal.” They further declared that men “are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” In order for these rights to be secured, our founding fathers wrote, “governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, ….” The truth of unalienable God-given individual rights was so important to our framers that ratification of the Constitution did not occur until the Bill of Rights, the first ten amendments to the Constitution, were added. Freedom of speech was so important to these men that it is contained as a tenet of the First Amendment declaring “Congress shall make no law …” infringing upon it.
Yet, there are certain speech that is considered “damaging” that the States are charged with regulating. These are libel, slander and yelling “fire” in a theater or speech to that equivalent and issuing terrorist threats, such as threatening to kill someone, and verbally harassing. The purview of the Tenth Amendment allows the States to make such laws. But, Al Hussein would like to see the government of the united States enact speech laws, against the First Amendment, that would criminalize racist comments, intolerance, and xenophobia.
According to the press release, “At the Summit for Refugees and Migrants in September 2016, UN Member States adopted a Declaration strongly condemning acts and manifestations of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance.” This “summit” kicked off the UN’s “Together initiative” that seeks to “change negative perceptions and attitudes aimed at refugees and migrants.”
And, therein lies the true reason for the UN push for the world’s nations to enact and implement “speech laws.”
Bureaucratic members of the United Nations abhor the God-given individual unalienable right to freedom of speech. Why? The right to freedom of speech not only applies to speech one likes; it applies to speech one doesn’t like. Being a racist is not a crime. Neither is speaking racist comments. One may not like those types of statements, but it is protected speech under the First Amendment and the right to freedom of speech. Intolerance nor xenophobia are crimes; but, the UN would like to see these made a crime. But, who would decide what is “racist,” “intolerant,” “xenophobic,” or “hate” speech? It would be the central governments of the world nations, approved by the bureaucracy of the United Nations.
This is coming to the forefront of the UN now because of the mass Muslim invasion of European nations where the native populations are standing against the European Union and the United Nations for the allowance of unlimited influx of invaders, negating their sovereignty and immigration laws. Being that the vast majority of these invaders are Muslim, it begins the process of Islamization of Europe and Western cultures to subjugate the world’s population to Islam and the United Nations. Note that the United Nations never sanction or oppose nations steeped in Islamic governments for “violations of human rights,” religious oppression, the equal rights of women to men as it relates to individual God-given unalienable rights, female genital mutilation, child marriages, or other tenets of Sharia law that place all others except men as second-class members of society. And, why would they when the majority of UN member states are Islamic?
Irina Bokova, director-general of United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), also weighed in on the U.N.’s Facebook page.
“Racial discrimination is a poison that diminishes individuals and societies, perpetuates inequality and feeds anger, bitterness and violence,” Bokova said. “The fight against racism and all forms of discrimination is a mainstay of peace and social cohesion, especially in our increasingly diverse societies.
“On the occasion of International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, UNESCO calls on all its Member States and partners to step up their efforts to build a more inclusive, more giving and fairer world,” Bokova said.
Bokova cited treatment of refugees in her remarks.
“In partnership with the Marianna V. Vardinoyannis Foundation and the European Coalition of Cities against Racism, UNESCO has in particular launched the initiative ‘Welcoming cities for refugees,’ with a view to supporting local authorities in their reception policies.”
The united States is far ahead of many of its counterparts in enacting laws against racial, religious, gender, and creed discrimination when it comes to employment and business activities while preserving religious freedom. One thing the united States government cannot do is prohibit or infringe upon an individual’s God-given unalienable right to free speech. But, the freedom of speech protects speech one might find “offensive,” “discriminatory in nature,” “intolerant,” “racially charged,” “nationalistic,” “xenophobic,” and “unsavory.” It does not protect speech identified earlier.
The only alternative for the united States to “comply” with the “request” of the UN is to enact and implement “speech laws.” It would place in the hands of the federal government the ability to regulate any speech the government didn’t like while bowing to the UN as the “authority” to dictate or govern over this republic. To contemplate that this scenario would not happen in the united States is to ignore the “liberty” with which our government has taken to trample our protected individual God-given unalienable rights thus far. It is to ignore the fact the united States has become a de facto police surveillance state, the violations against Americans by NSA and CIA spying without probable cause or reasonable suspicion and without duly issued warrants, the attacks upon the right to keep and bear arms, and the ever encroaching intrusion into the lives of Americans through the takeover of health care insurance and health care services industries. With the blatant open violations of our elected representatives of their oath of office and the failure to follow the tenets of the Constitution, our law of the land, can anyone be certain that our government would not follow “suggestions” made by the United Nations?
Our elected representatives spend taxpayer money on unconstitutional items — aid to foreign governments, entitlement programs, funding of the United Nations, pork projects, bank bailouts, aiding, arming and funding of terrorist organizations such as ISIS, and extravagance in departmental spending such as conferences attended by IRS employees. They provide living expenses for illegal alien invaders by allowing these individuals to tap entitlement programs funded by taxpayer money. These elected representatives allow illegal alien invaders to access Social Security funds, which Americans pay into in order to access when retired or disabled, without these invaders paying one dime into the system. And, these representatives allow taxpayer funds to pay for medical treatment of illegal alien invaders.
Americans suffer violation of the Fourth Amendment by the federal government through searches and “pat downs” by the Transportation Safety Administration before being allowed to fly. Citizens are limited in their movement when placed on the “no-fly” list then being denied due process to prove their limitation is erroneous. The government condones the procurement of property by using “imminent domain” and “civil asset forfeiture” with the individual being denied compensation and due process to have their assets returned.
While the united States government has decreased its funding to the United Nations, it has not gone far enough. Our republic should withdraw our UN membership and stop all funding of this unauthorized, pseudo-law making bureaucracy. The UN was supposedly created to prevent conflicts between nations, especially a world wide conflict as was seen in both world wars. However, the UN has failed miserably because it began pushing an agenda toward an unnatural state of one-world government with wealth redistribution. Moreover, it has failed to quell conflict between the nations of the world as the world has seen more conflict since the inception of the UN than before and the world now teeters on the brink of another world conflict. Look at the posturing of North Korea, the flexing of power by China, and the build up of Russia.
Where is the UN in “citing” these nations as “threatening” to the world? Nowhere, because the UN is about eradicating rights of individuals given by God. These nations already do that to varying degrees. Yet, this world body denigrates Israel and the united States for “human rights violations.”
What the UN has accomplished is given preference to Islamic nations and Islamic principles over every other world sovereign, except North Korea, China and Russia. It is evident in its policies and “requests.” The united States and every free western sovereign should tell the UN to “pack up and go back home.” In essence, this unelected world body is a threat to liberty, freedom, life, and the pursuit of happiness.
