As if this wasn’t enough evidence to prove that the United Nations is a hypocritical cartoon. North Korea, a pariah nation, has taken over the rotating presidency of the United Nations Conference on Disarmament.
Let me first explain how this all happened.
According to the Washington Post’s Friday news, all member countries are eligible for the presidency. This has been criticized by Western countries in the recent past. This was clear when Syria won the presidency several years ago.
The presidency is symbolic and administrative. The hypocrisy of “august” is evident in the nomination of North Korea’s dictator Kim Jung Un to head a nuclear disarmament conference. Similar to the time when Saudi Arabia was elected as a member of the U.N. Commission on the Status of Women. Women couldn’t drive their own cars at that time. Saudi women still need permission from a male guardian to travel or work outside of the country.
North Korea’s Ambassador Han Tae Song opened the conference by asking members to work for “peace, safety” He expressed his willingness to work with all members.
Han also brought up the argument that “North Korea has the right to defend itself”. NoKo technically has no war with the U.S., but there is a ceasefire. It is not an agreement.
The United Nations is the bigger problem.
Israel has been treated in an appalling and hypocritical manner by the U.N. over the years. In 45 resolutions, the United Nations Human Rights Council condemned Israel. Hamas was repeatedly ignored.
The U.N. is not always a favorable place for the United States.
My colleague Jeff Charles reported that the U.N. condemned America’s “police violence” and “racism in November 2020. Fairly speaking, it is clear that Democrats are far more concerned about how the U.S. at the U.N. is treated than Republicans. Sometimes, they use the hypocritical body against America.
These signs could go on and on. I remember as a child going on vacation with my family and seeing them along the interstate. These signs were often posted on farms or other lands. They read: “Get the U.N. out of the U.S. and the U.S. out of the U.N.”
It didn’t seem bad at the time. Perhaps it’s an even better idea now.
