U.N. Human Rights Chief Condemns ‘Ugly’ Tone of U.S. Election

And there was little doubt who he was talking about

The head of the United Nations Human Rights Office challenged the rhetoric of Republican presidential contender Donald Trump in a speech Friday, saying he and other presidential candidates had resurrected the “ugly phantom of racial and religious division.”

In a reference to Trump, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, U.N. high commissioner for human rights, rued that “a front-running candidate to be President of this country declared, just a few months ago, his enthusiastic support for torture,” before condemning “hateful slander” leveled at foreigners.

He continued: “To casually toss this gasoline onto the smouldering embers of fear is to risk great harm to a great nation.”

And who gives a rats a** what the U.N. thinks, or says??

Can someone tell this "Human Rights Chief" where he can shove the Secretariat!

I don't give a shat what this Hussein rat has to say.....elect Trump and dump the UN.

YES!

Hey, "human rights chief"! You have no right to say anything about MY country! Stuff a sock in it and shut the hell up! And that evil building should be bulldozed. Let them build it in a foreign cesspool instead of misusing OUR land and money for your nefarious schemes against us.

The UN has an agenda to destroy the SOVEREIGNTY of the United States. In fact, the establishment, Ted Cruz included are all on board to give our rights away. Western European countries have already given up their sovereignty by joining together as the European Union.  What better way to rid the world of the non-compliant United States citizens than to flood our country with dangerous muslims to take over our country and wipe us out!

Trump is right, we should get out of the UN. They are trying to control us at every turn. They are working to destroy us with our own money. We don't need to follow the other western countries into the hole of HELL.

VERY well said, Pamela.

Pamela,  you are so right about the hole of hell.  The Bible clearly talks about this.

The UN is useless.  What they say should not effect anything in the USA>  We need profiling to keep people safe.

...and what about the ugly tone of north korea, china, iran, Palestine, cuba, mexico....etc.....maybe the united nations should finally get the hell out of the united states where the united nations officials live in luxury and are exempt from laws that we all have to suffer with.....perfect example that those terrorists on 9/11 hit the wrong buildings.

Al, I agree, I started saying "You missed", a long time ago.

Al, I've said that many times but idiots don't see why. They refuse to accept the facts. Frustrating.

OMG!!! Ruth Bader Ginsburg Voted Best Real-Life Hero At MTV Awards

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Monday was crowned the best real-life hero at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.

The 86-year old judge — whose 2015 biopic The Notorious RBG help cement her as a cultural icon among Liberals — beat out tennis star Serena Williams, WWE wrestler Roman Reigns, and comedian Hannah Gadsby to take him the award.

Though it wasn’t a clean sweep for Ginsburg last night.

The RGB documentary lost the “Best Fight” category for “Ruth Bader Ginsburg vs. Inequality” to “Captain Marvel vs. Minn-Erva.”

The justice was absent from the ceremony in Santa Monica, California.

Last December, Ginsburg had surgery to remove cancerous growths on her left lung. She was released from the hospital in New York four days later and recuperated at home.

Earlier this year, Ginsburg missed three days of arguments, the first time that’s happened since she joined the court in 1993. Still, she was allowed to participate using court briefs and transcripts.

Ginsburg has had two previous bouts with cancer, in 1999 and 10 years later.

Flashback: Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Pregnant Woman Is Not A ‘Mother’

Celebrated liberal U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg argued in an opinion released Tuesday that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.”

“[A] woman who exercises her constitutionally protected right to terminate a pregnancy is not a ‘mother’,” Ginsburg wrote in a footnote, which in turn responded to another footnote in the 20-page concurring opinion by Justice Clarence Thomas in the Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky Inc. case.

As Breitbart News’ legal editor Ken Klukowski reported, the case concerned a law signed by then-Governor (now Vice President) Mike Pence of Indiana in 2016, which required that the remains of an aborted fetus (or baby) be disposed of by cremation or burial. The law also prohibited abortion on the basis of sex, race, or disability alone.

The Court upheld the first part of the law, but declined to consider the selective-abortion ban until more appellate courts had ruled on it.

In his lengthy opinion — which delighted pro-life advocates, and distressed pro-choice activists — Thomas wrote that “this law and other laws like it promote a State’s compelling interest in preventing abortion from becoming a tool of modern-day eugenics.” He traced the racist and eugenicist beliefs of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, and warned that the Court would one day need to wrestle with abortion as form of racial discrimination.

In a footnote, Thomas attacked Ginsberg’s dissenting opinion, which argued the Court should not have deferred to the legal standard used by the litigants in the lower courts, but should have subjected the Indiana law to a more difficult standard instead, since it impacted “the right of [a] woman” to an abortion.

Ginsburg cited no legal authority for her claim that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.” The claim that a fetus is not a child is central to pro-choice arguments.
