The idiocy that is the UN has named China to the Human Rights Council. The timing is nothing short of symbolic considering that the world is devastated from COVID-19.
Let’s go through the timeline of China’s handling of the novel coronavirus and their international communication with the medical world.
- December: China covered up the existence of the virus in it’s first month of existence.
- January: China lied to the World Health Organization (WHO) about the virus being transmitted by human to human contact.
- February – April: China lies to the international medical community about number of cases and number of deaths as a result of COVID-19. Covering up as many as 37,500 deaths
- March: China lies saying US soldiers are the ones who started the viruses spread.
With all of that being said the UN still appointed them to the Human Rights Council. According to the UN Human Rights Council website, “the Human Rights Council is an inter-governmental body within the United Nations system responsible for strengthening the promotion and protection of human rights around the globe and for addressing situations of human rights violations and make recommendations on them.”
Countries on this panel are responsible for decision making on international policy in regards to human rights. So of course the UN included China.
China, which is responsible for the the avian flu, swine flu and COVID-19, and a bevy of other human rights violations, should have absolutely no say in policy making for Human Rights internationally.
The Communist Party of China, or CPC, is the ruling, and only, political party of China. The CPC is no stranger to human rights violations. The CPC is known for its state control of the media (controlling what is reported and routinely lying to it’s people), harassing and detaining journalists who cover their human rights violations, not allowing it’s people to practice religion, allowing families to only have one child, etc.
In early 2019 documents leaked from the CPC reveal that China has been imprisoning Muslims in concentration camps that they call re-education camps. China has corralled more than 1 million individuals into these camps. The documents also reveal the inner workings of the camps.
While China was claiming these camps were “teaching vocational skills” the leaked documents show a different story. “Camps must adhere to a strict regiment of total physical and mental control, a grueling diet of political indoctrination, vice-like security protocols and strict secrecy” according to the CPC classified documents that were leaked by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists.
Like most large bureaucracies, the UN has time and time again shown itself incapable of doing what it was originally intended to do. This is just another example of malpractice by the UN and another example of why it no longer serves its purpose.
