December 10, 2019 – Today Is World Human Rights Day.

December 10th 2016 - Today Is Human Rights Day. Stand Up For Someone's Rights Today!

Human Rights Day is observed every year on the 10th of December. It commemorates the day on which, in 1948, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In 1950, the Assembly passed resolution 423 (V), inviting all States and interested organizations to observe 10 December of each year as Human Rights Day.

As the world marks 70 years of the adoption of the UDHR, the UN’s year long campaign #StandUp4HumanRights draws to a close. By this campaign, the UN aimed to “call on people to take action for greater freedoms, stronger respect and more compassion for the rights of others”.

We must reaffirm our common humanity. Wherever we are, we can make a real difference. In the street, in school, at work, in public transport; in the voting booth, on social media.

The time for this is now. “We the peoples” can take a stand for rights. And together, we can take a stand for more humanity.

It starts with each of us. Step forward and defend the rights of a refugee or migrant, a person with disabilities, an LGBT person, a woman, a child, indigenous peoples, a minority group, or anyone else at risk of discrimination or violence.

“Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home — so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. […] Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world.” — Eleanor Roosevelt

WHAT A MAROON - Donald Trump Testifies That He Fears “Dangerous Fruit” 

UN General Assembly Laughs At Trump’s Lying Accomplishments – VIDEO

Mashable reports:

The world just laughed out loud at Donald Trump. On Tuesday, during the president’s address to the United Nations General Assembly, the audience laughed when Trump boasted that “my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country.”

As soon as the words left Trump’s mouth, a ripple of laughter traveled through the crowd and grew as Trump reacted to the guffaws. Taken aback, he said, with the smallest of grins, “It’s so true. I didn’t expect that reaction but it’s okay.”

Nikki Haley Says U.S. Did Not Vote for Gay Death Penalty Although It Really Did

With over 24 hours to think of a spin to put on yesterdays news that the united States voted against a United Nations resolution condemning the death penalty for having gay sex.  Nikki Haley is denying that the vote had nothing to do gay genocide but instead U.S. voted against the resolution because of its support for the legal death penalty, adding that it had hoped for a “balanced and inclusive” resolution rather than one that said capital punishment is a human rights violation.

Haley later took issue with her critics on Twitter, saying “Fact: There was NO vote by USUN that supported the death penalty for gay people. We have always fought for justice for the LGBT community.”

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert had told reporters earlier in the day saying that the U.S. condemns executions for and the criminalization of homosexuality, and that suggestions to the contrary are “misleading.”

A statement from the U.S. at the time of the vote explaining the decision did not include any language about the protection of same-sex people, juveniles or minorities.

The U.S. has executed 18 people this year, according to the Death Penalty Information Center.

An Amnesty International report said that the U.S. had the seventh most executions in the world last year, between Egypt and Somalia.

Either way its reprehensible. 

 

United States Votes ‘No’ on UN Resolution Condemning Death Penalty for Homosexuality

 

The United States was one of just 13 countries to vote against a United Nations resolution condemning the death penalty for having gay sex. 

Although the vote passed, America joined countries such as China, Iraq and Saudi Arabia in opposing the move.

The US also supported two failed amendments put forward by Russia, which stated the death penalty was not necessarily “a human rights violation” and that it is not a form of torture, but can lead to it “in some cases”. And it abstained on a “sovereignty amendment” put forward by Saudi Arabia, that stated “the right of all countries to develop their own laws and penalties”.

Despite the opposition, the vote in Geneva passed with 27 of the 47-member Human Rights Council in favor. 

There are currently six countries where the death penalty is used for people in same-sex relationships: Iran, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Yemen, Nigeria and Somalia. This number rises to eight if the Isis-occupied territories of Iraq and Syria are included. 

“Vandals” Trash National Organization for Marriages’s “Free Speech” Anti-Trans Hate Bus

"Vandals" Tag National Organization for Marriages’s "Free Speech" Anti-Trans Hate Bus

USA Today reports:

A bus spreading a message against transgender culture was vandalized near United Nations headquarters early Thursday evening while it was parked, according to the head of one of the three groups organizing the bus tour.

The “Free Speech Bus,” as it is called by organizers, was parked near the UN for a scheduled event when two people approached, scratched it with a key, cracked windows with a hammer, and spray painted slogans such as “Trans Liberation,” Brian Brown, president of the Washington-based National Organization for Marriage, told USA TODAY.

The people on board the bus traveling between points in New York, Connecticut, Washington and Boston were inside the UN for an event, but the driver was with the vehicle, Brown said. The driver tried to protect the bus and was tackled but not hurt by one of the vandals, Brown said.

Brown’s organization put together the bus tour along the East Coast along with Citizen Go, a social activism group that works through online petitions, and the International Organization for the Family, a Washington-based group that promotes “the natural family.”

Brian Brown speaking to Brietbart.com added:

The overall goal for the transgender activists is a “genderless society” which no longer allows any social, civic or legal recognition of the biologically-based, different, equal and complementary preferences of the two distinct heterosexual sexes, including the normal view of marriage as a man and a woman joining to become parents for the next generation of people.

“The end of the [transgender] road is to say that fundamental reality is simply a subset of our wishes — that if I wake up one day and say ‘I’m a boy [then] I’m a boy,’ … that’s the big lie here,” he said.

Small-government libertarians should recognize that “if you [allow government to] change the fundamental nature of male or female persons, it can change anything — and the government can try to coerce people to buy into their false version of reality,” he said.

The orange bus was leased to help share this argument with Americans and media outlets around the nation, he said  “The ‘gender identity’ activists have scared people from stating the obvious truth,” said Brown. “The bus is letting people know they should not be afraid to stand against this nonsense,” he added.

Many in the LGBT Media are referring to the perpetrators as “vandals” while many right-wing websites are calling those who did it “trans-activists”. 

 

Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins: Broadway Musicals Are Gay Propaganda!

Family Research Council's Tony Perkins:  Broadway Musicals Are Gay Propaganda!

Upset because US Ambassador Samantha Power took some of her colleagues to see the Tony-winning lesbian-themed Broadway musical, Fun Home. Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council hate group and friend of David Duke is claiming that Powers was “trying to export Obama’s sexual extremism to a world preoccupied by far more important issues”.

The State Department already has an official LGBT envoy — it doesn’t need two! Tell that to Samantha Power, the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., who is determined to join the administration’s goodwill tour for homosexuality. Like Secretary John Kerry, who seems oblivious to any problem not preceded by the letters L-G-B-T, Power is adding to the president’s embarrassing diplomatic legacy by trying to export Obama’s sexual extremism to a world preoccupied by far more important issues.

On Tuesday, Power, who has the ear of some of the international community’s most important leaders, decided to spend her influence persuading them on the need to celebrate homosexuality. This week, she hosted 15 U.N. Ambassadors at a gay Broadway musical called “Fun Home.” Representatives from Russia, Namibia, and other more culturally conservative countries sat through New York’s latest sexual propaganda, followed by a personal thank you from Power herself. “Thank you,” she told the cast, “for bringing all of this home in a way that resolutions and statements never can.”

It was a stunning display of political tone-deafness, considering the real crises happening right now on the real world stage. Unfortunately, as far as this president is concerned, the most urgent message America can send to the international community right now is “that protecting the rights of LGBT people will remain a key foreign policy priority of the United States.” And its only priority, seemingly. While the world is experiencing the largest forced migration since WWII, the White House can’t bring itself to say much about the persecution endured by men and women of faith.

Where is this same boldness when it comes to the real suffering of Middle East Christians? Apparently, Power and others think world leaders need to be educated on the sexual proclivities of a few rather than the genocide of hundreds of thousands of men, women and children. When you juxtapose what’s happening at the State Department with what’s happening in the rest of the world, it’s easy to see why the president isn’t taken seriously — at home or abroad.

There isn’t a subject too big or too small for Tony Perkins to bitch about and if he can bash both gays and the president he’s doubly pleased

Tbe below musical number is approved by the Tony Perkins and the FRC:

 

Republican Trans-Quisling Caitlyn Jenner Visits The UN for International Human Rights Day

Frankensteins Monster Caitlyn Jenner

Earlier this week Caitlyn “I’m still voting Republican” Jenner met with Samantha Power, the United States ambassador to the United Nations, who praised her for efforts to raise the profile of transgender people. (Even if its a bad one.)

“Today is International Human Rights Day. At the United Nations, we’re working to integrate LGBT rights into every discussion on human rights, but there is still so much more we can do so that everyone has the freedom to live as they are without fear. It was good to talk to Caitlyn Jenner recently about the important work we can do at home, at the UN, and internationally. Around the world – and here in the US – transgender people face bullying, abuse, and even fatal violence simply for who they are. The threat is all too real for too many: from 2008-2014, over 1,600 transgender people were killed worldwide.

Said Jenner in the video:

“If you look at issues on a worldwide basis, I’m pretty comfortable with the issues here in the United States. We have come a long way, we have a long way to go. We’ve come a long way. But If you look at this on an international level, these issues are huge. I mean, people are murdered, killed, hung over this issue, and it just doesn’t have to be that way.”

Exactly what qualifications does Caitlyn Jenner have to be talking on the LGBT communities behalf to the UN ? She does not represent my views, any of my friends views or any trans-activists views that I know of.  In fact many trans activist I know of can’t stand her now but won’t say anything publically because they lauded her so much after her transition which is something that they really need to remedy.

Jenner says that she’s “comfortable” with the issues here in the United States.? With LGBT bashings and murders on the rise at home and after what happened in Houston SHE is comfortable.  She’s comfortable because she’s a rich  republican who cares only about herself and her money, no different than any other republican.

We have hundreds of excellent, dedicated, educated and committed LGBT people who have spent their lives campaigning for equality. Why are we allowing this fake, dishonest,, self-absorbed, fame whore to represent us a whole.

Its time the LGB and especially the Trans-community put Caitlyn in her place. She does not advocate for them, or the LGB community.  Just herself.

Dr. Frankenstein you created this monster and now its your job to destroy it.

Saudi Arabia Denounces LGBT Inclusion In United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals

United Nations

Saudi Arabia protested the inclusion of gay rights in the United Nations’ new agenda for global development, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which were officially adopted Friday.

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir told a U.N. summit of world leaders that “mentioning sex in the text, to us, means exactly male and female. Mentioning family means consisting of a married man and woman,” and asserted the country’s right to disregard portions of the agenda that mandate any “deviations” from it,according to the Associated Press

The new SDG objectives replace the Millennium Development Goals that focused largely on poverty and healthcare issues. The SDGs broaden the focus by challenging inequality and also shift attention to combating climate change. Some targets, relate to universal access to reproductive healthcare and protection of sexual and gender orientation.

The Vatican has previously expressed “reservations” about the SDGs’ language surrounding sexual and reproductive rights.

Homosexuality is punishable by death in Saudi Arabia,

The United States Fails to Meet International Human Rights Standards For LGBT Americans

United Nations

 

On Monday, the Williams Institute filed a report with the United Nations showing how the lack of protections against employment discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity constitute human rights violations in the United States. Based on social science research and legal analysis, the report suggests the United States is not complying with its international human rights commitments, particularly in the areas of employment, health, youth and violence against LGBT people.
“LGBT people continue to be subject to human rights violations in the areas of
employment, poverty, hate crimes, and health. Continued unequal treatment
and barriers to access to justice indicates that the U.S. is not fulfilling its
obligations under the 2010 UPR. Therefore, the U.S. should expand and
improve its efforts to collect quality data on the LGBT population and
prohibit any form of discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or
gender identity.”
The United Nations has recently begun a review of the human rights record of the United States.  In its last review, the United States accepted recommendations to address discrimination against LGBT people in order to comply with international human rights standards.  However, there is no federal law that protects LGBT people from discrimination in the workplace.  The report is a follow up to earlier testimony by Williams Institute scholars presented to the U.S. State Department in July as part of the Universal Periodic Review process.

 

Disgraceful.

The Country of Nepal Drafts New Laws To Re-criminalize Gay Sex Funded By The U.N. Developement Program

WTF

 

The country of Nepal whose Supreme Court ruled in 2007 to ensure broad protections for LGBT people and whose government was revently looking into legalizing same-sex marriage after a Supreme Court decision in 2008. Now 7 year later Justice minister Narahari Acharya of the ruling Nepali Congress is seeking to enact laws to re criminalize gay sex and make it punishable by 3 years in prison an even stricter punishment as the old law.  And to make matters even worse the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) actually funded the original two committees that drafted the new anti-gay laws codes but didn’t monuitor them!

Sunil Pant, the country’s first openly gay politician and former member of parliament, told Gay Star News in an email:

‘We are really concerned about this attempt of taking Nepal back to draconian era after so much progress we made. Unbelievable that the government is going all against the Supreme Court decisions on LGBTI rights and other minority and marginalized people’s rights in Nepal,’ he said.

Pant also demands to know why the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), which is known to be a supporter of LGBT rights worldwide, had provided funding for the original two committees that drafted the anti-gay codes but did not monitor their outcome.

‘Irony is that UNDP funded the original two committees to draft these codes and they said they did not have the clue what was being drafted. At least they should have been more vigilant whether their aid is being abused, misused or used properly.’

Discrimination and hate crimes brought to you by the United Nations.  Useless idiots.
