After Harsh Criticism from the Public, the U.N, Deletes Tweet Backing Antifa Terrorists
On June 19, 2020, the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG) posted a tweet supporting Antifa’s right to “freedom of expression” and “peaceful assembly.”
In the original tweet, the Antifa flag was depicted with the text: “UN Human Rights experts express profound concern over a recent statement by the US Attorney-General describing Antifa and other anti-fascist activists as domestic terrorists, saying it undermines the rights to freedom of expression and of peaceful assembly in the country.”
Antifa aren’t just any other protest group. They’ve been implicated in arson, assault, burglary, and vandalism.
For that reason, the U.N.’s support of Antifa was met with considerable criticism from onlookers. Some on social media called for the U.S. government to defund the international organization.
President Donald Trump originally voiced his desire to label Antifa a domestic terrorist organization. Journalist Andy Ngo recently revealed his desire to sue Rose City Antifa after his assault back in the summer of 2019.
On June 19, 2020, the United Nations Human Rights Council reached an agreement on conducting a report on systemic racism and discrimination against African Americans.
This decision was spurred by a petition filed by George Floyd’s brother, Philonise Floyd, who urged the UN to investigate racism and police brutality in America.
Responding to the international organization’s decision to condemn racism, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo declared that the Human Rights Council is “a haven for dictators and the democracies that indulge them”.
In response to the move by the international body, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that the Human Rights Council is “a haven for dictators and the democracies that indulge them”.
“If the Council were serious about protecting human rights, there are plenty of legitimate needs for its attention, such as the systemic racial disparities in places like Cuba, China, and Iran,” Pompeo declared in a statement on June 20, 2020.
The U.N. should always be ignored.
It’s a globalist entity that pushes an anti-West agenda and political correctness.
If the Trump administration wants to leave its mark, it should completely defund the U.N. and exit the organization altogether.
