53 U.N. Member Nations Vote For Anti-Freedom Chinese Crackdown On Hong Kong

Yes, there’s a lot of this and that regarding the freedom push in Hong Kong, but they are for freedom and liberty, the opposite of what China wants. It’s long past time to pull out of the UN, not just the so-called Human Rights Committe

At UN Human Rights Council, 53 countries back China’s draconian Hong Kong crackdown

Fifty-three countries at the U.N. Human Rights Council, led by Cuba, came out in support of China’s national security law this week — a law that has formed the basis of the communist regime’s latest crackdown on the people of Hong Kong.

Dueling statements were read out in the Council Tuesday in support and against the national security law. According to Axios, Cuba read out a statement in favor of the law backed by 52 other countries, while the U.K. read out a statement against it, representing itself and 26 other countries.

Chinese state media Xinhua reported that the Cuban statement said the law was beneficial for Hong Kong’s prosperity and stability, and guarantees that Hong Kong residents can exercise their freedom in a “safe environment.”

The law criminalizes anti-government movements, and is targeted at pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong who have pushed back against Beijing’s incursions on freedoms in the territory — which is supposed to be ruled on the principle of “one country, two systems.”

The law punishes crimes of secession, subversion, terrorism and collusion with foreign forces with up to life in prison.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Wednesday that “Free Hong Kong was one of the world’s most stable, prosperous and dynamic cities. Now it’s just another communist-run city where its people will be subject to the party elites wins.”

But at the Human Rights Council, where a number of countries with poor human rights records sit, those in favor of the draconian measure outnumbered those who opposed it. The Council came under renewed scrutiny over its membership this year, when Venezuela was among those with records of human rights abuse who took a seat.

This is what you get with the United Nations, a veritable cesspool of tyranny and hatred of freedom. We pulled out of the HRC in 2018. It’s time to go all together. Let’s see how well this pit of dictatorship, scum, and human rights violators like it without United States money.

Also, Trump and the Congressional Republicans should force Democrats to go on the record over this backing of China. See what they do.

    Someone will have to explain to me what the U.S. gets from being in the U.N., ’cause it sure looks like a whole lot of nothing, and worse we’re paying for that nothing.

    The U.N. can move to Beijing and we should help them pack as our goodbye present.

    If they weren’t in the USA, half their staff would quit. They only work there to get into the USA.
