After months of threats, the Trump Administration announced Tuesday that they are withdrawing the United States from the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC). Officials said the move was because the body is too often critical of Israel’s human rights record.
Israel has long agitated for the US to withdraw from the body, and ratchets that up every time the UN starts investigating a new round of killings in the occupied territories. The US has been talking up this move for awhile.
The US used to be a champion for human rights, freedom and democracy. Under Trump, America is turning into a fascist dualopoly.
Fascism is defined as corporate ownership of the government.
Guess what the US has in place right now?
Corporations generally don’t like human rights, because that means worker rights, and those interfere with maximum profits.
Thus, the US is turning away from human rights, civil rights, freedom, democracy and diversity, in favor of a corrupt Nazi style fascist government.
One step on the way down into the dark abyss of fascism is leaving the Human Rights Council in the UN, which the US established.
