Head of UN Watch Calls Out the United Nations for its Hypocrisy on Slavery

Published

on

Hillel Neuer, the Executive Director of UN Watch, criticized the UN for placing Mauritania on its Human Rights Council, while the organization celebrated the abolition of slavery.

On December 2, 2019, the UN was celebrating International Day for the Abolition of Slavery.

In a tweet, the UN declared, “Modern forms of slavery persist around the world. Understanding the scale of the problem is the first step to knowing how to address it. Monday is Abolition of Slavery Day. http://bit.ly/2OoC1e8.”

This post caught Neuer’s attention and he responded accordingly: “You just elected Mauritania, which enslaves 500,000 people, to your highest human rights body.”

In 1981, Mauritania abolished slavery, but the practice still persists in the West African country.

Mauritania joined the UN’s Human Rights Council in October this year, which places it next to countries such as Venezuela, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Somalia.

Being lumped in with countries like Venezuela — which is experiencing a massive man-made disaster thanks to its socialist policies — is not a good look.

However, the UN doesn’t care much for freedom. It is one of the leading organizations in the promotion of global governance.

For it to dominate on the international stage, the U.N. must throw Western countries under the bus and prop up regressive countries.

What Neuer and his organization do is to expose the U.N. and it’s blatant hypocrisy on human rights.

The U.S. would be wise to leave this organization as soon as possible.

Weak Senator Mitt Romney Attacks GOP’s Investigation On Sleepy Joe’s Corruption

Published

on

On September 16, 2020, Utah Senator Mitt Romney criticized his fellow Republicans in the Senate Homeland Security Committee for their investigation into Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son’s business dealings in Ukraine.

Romney declared that this investigation had the “earmarks of a political exercise.”

Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson, the leader of this investigation, said to reporters on September 14 that “in about a week we’re going to learn a whole lot more of Vice President Biden’s unfitness for office.” The committee is in the process of investigating Hunter Biden’s work for Ukrainian gas company Burisma during a time when Joe Biden was the head of Obama administration’s Ukraine policy.

Romney specifically stated at a hearing on September 16 that the investigation “from the outset had the earmarks of a political exercise. I’m fearful that comments made in the media recently have only confirmed that perspective.”

The Utah Senator declared “It’s not the legitimate role of government, for Congress or for taxpayer expense, to be used in an effort to damage political opponents.” He added, “I do believe it’s very important that the committees of Congress, and ours in particular, not fall into an increasing pattern that we’re seeing, which is using taxpayer dollars and the power of Congress to do political work. That’s the role of campaigns.”

Earlier in March of this year, Romney said that the investigation “appears” to be politically motivated. However, a spokesperson for the senator said that he ended up changing his mind the following day after receiving a promise from Johnson that the probe would be conducted behind closed doors.

Romney yet again shows his true colors as a Republican with no spine. In a previous report, BLP exposed Romney for calling out Trump and asserting that he is stoking racial animosity. Romney’s politically correct comments show how low he will stoop to in trying to seek approval from the political establishment. It’s no surprise why he voted to impeach Trump earlier this year.

Serious conservatives should do everything possible to boot Romney out of the party.
