U.N.-Believable Choice

World Bodies: The newest adviser to the U.N. Human Rights Council hates democracies and loves dictators. The only right he wants is to bash the United States and Israel. Truly, the inmates are running this asylum.

We commented last week on how the Human Rights Council of the U.N. has ignored China's occupation and brutalization of the Tibetan nation while finding time to condemn Israel a dozen times in the HRC's two years of existence.

This is no surprise when people like Jean Ziegler, a former Swiss Socialist lawmaker, is picked as one of the council's 18 advisers. His election last week as one of three Western representatives shows that the only thing changed from the old U.N. Commission on Human Rights is the title — to protect the idiotic and hypocritical.

Ziegler's nomination by the Swiss prompted U.N. Watch, a Geneva-based nongovernmental organization, and 14 other NGOs to write the Swiss government urging it to withdraw his candidacy.

In their letter, the NGOs said Ziegler's term as a special "rapporteur" (investigator/reporter) on the "right to food" showed he "embodied everything that was discredited about the old Commission on Human Rights: gross politicization, selectivity, lack of professionalism and lack of credibility." It's worth noting that in 2004 Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez nominated him for this same post.

The further removed an organization is from the voters, the more totalitarian it tends to become.

"...hates democracies and loves dictators."

The Left--whose Political Machine, in the United States, is the Democrat Party and whose Propaganda Machine is the "Mainstream Newsmedia"--and which has come to dominate Europe and the United Nations--hates democracies and loves dictators.

The Leftists' Dream is a world-wide police state with themselves as ruling oligarchy. The form this takes is of little interest to them--a world-wide Stalinist/communist state, Islamic theocracy, Third Reich (i.e. national socialism) or whatever. What they envision is themselves ruling the people of the world with an iron grip and laws with teeeth in them (i.e. draconian and severe).

This is the Leftist Dream.

It contrasts powerfully with the American Dream: liberty, justice, and prosperity for all the people of the world.

There is no place in the Leftist Dream for liberty.

As for justice--the oligarchy will decide what that is on an ad hoc basis.

And prosperity? The oligarchy will be prosperous--make no mistake about that! But they will reserve the right to they see fit. Make no mistake about that either!
