UN launches plan to combat escalating hate speech
“Secretary-General Antonio Guterres is launching a plan to combat hate speech and counter what he calls ‘a groundswell of xenophobia, racism and intolerance, violent misogyny, anti-Semitism and anti-Muslim hatred’ around the world.” - Fox
Show of hands: who trusts the U.N. to get “hate speech” right? …. anyone? …. anyone?
Views expressed are always my own and not my employer's, my church's, my family's, my neighbors', or my pets'. The house plants have authorized me to speak for them, however, and they always agree with me.
The U.N., author of innumerable resolutions against Israel for defending itself against terrorism, is going to be the arbiter of what constitutes obnoxious anti-semitism? Seriously? When China and Russia—#1 and #2 in terms of worst genocides ever—are permanent members of the Security Council, you can safely write off the U.N. in terms of human rights.
(for further laughs, or tears, take a look at historic members of the Human Rights Council….it’s like a murderer’s row, quite literally)
