ACLU Demands U.S. Be Condemned

The ACLU posted a message on their website proclaiming to be encouraged by the United Nations Human Rights Committee questioning the US government on several issues concerning human rights. The HRC wants answers from the United States on specific incidents including the militarization of the border, Hurricane Katrina, warrant-less spying on ordinary Americans and the indefinite detention, rendition and torture of non-citizens. The examination was at the behest of the ACLU which provided the UN council a report in which it claims details the expansive violations of the United States. GENEVA, SWITZERLAND — A United Nations human rights body expressed grave concerns today about the record of human rights in the United States. The American Civil Liberties Union with a delegation of 10 and working with a broad coalition of other groups is in Geneva to monitor the examination of the United States the U.N. Human Rights Committee (HRC).

I'm not surprised the ACLU would turn to the most corrupt organization on the planet to draw out a report that they can, in turn, use to solidify their own anti-American and corrupt self. That’s how the game works. It’s like the left-wing media creating credibility for groups such as Amnesty International so that when Amnesty International makes bogus charges against the United States the media can turn around and use that to push their agenda. It can basically be seen as an international cabal based on a set of similar beliefs all of which can be described as not pro-American. And what is ironic about all of this hoopla is that the UN HRC is comprised of some of the worst human rights violators in the world; Cuba, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and China all aid in setting policy.

As for the heart of the story and the possible human rights violations…what can I say? Has the United States violated core human rights in the past? Yes. Did America violate human rights under Democratic administrations? Yes. Has every other country in the world done the same? Yes. Is America at the top of the list of worst offenders? No. Are some of the worst offenders on the actual Human Rights Committee? Yes. Is America the country that has provided more Freedom for oppressed people in modern history than any other country? Yes. Should we fight the war on terror with the UN or the HRC in mind? No. Should we stop tracking terrorists via the NSA or should we stop detaining terrorists indefinitely because the so called “world community” (the community largely made up of terrorist-sympathizers, anti-Semites, anti-American, anti-capitalist, anti-Republican) whines about their beloved freedom fighters? No.
