American ambassador, Nikki Haley, condemned the United Nations’ report on poverty in the United States Monday, according to The Guardian. This is a bit hypocritical, especially since she announced America’s departure from UN’s human rights council.
Americans have never really believed in human rights, as Americans have engaged in slavery and genocide over the past two centuries. So, who are Americans to whine about human rights-especially when conservatives in the United States say that waterboarding isn’t torture?
Let’s take a look at our human rights record, shall we?
Genocide of Native Americans
Jim Crow Laws
Plessy v. Ferguson (separate, but equal)
Displacement of Japanese Americans during World War II
My Lai, 1968
Forced sterilization of people with developmental disabilities and mental illness
It doesn’t look good for the United States of America, does it?
Americans have always been hypocritical about the concept of human rights, but Donald Trump is brazen in this outright hypocrisy. He doesn’t even hide it.
Look at the way children were ripped their parents just days ago-including a child with a developmental disability.
Had I seen that I would have torn the bastard’s tongue right out of his fucking God damn head for mocking that poor little girl.
Remember that the Republican Party is supposed to uphold Christian virtue-as if Christianity had any virtue to uphold in the first place.
Does it not state in their Bible that we are to welcome the immigrant among us? And if so, does the Bible make any distinction between legal and supposedly illegal?
You’ve read it from me before, and I’ll reiterate the point, American Christians are going to burn in Hell for misery they have wrought upon the most vulnerable.
