U.N. Human Rights Council and Obama

According to Fox Politics:

The U.N. Human Rights Council has called for restrictions on free speech and ignored blatant human rights abuses in a host of countries. It has passed five separate resolutions condemning Israel, more than all of the 191 U.N. member states combined.

It counts among its members consistent human rights violators as China, Cuba, Egypt, Libya and Saudi Arabia.

And now the United States wants to become one of the organization's 47 members.

President Obama thinks he can reform the Human Rights Council from within but the U.S. will simply be outvoted. What our membership will do is add legitimacy to repressive, totalitarian regimes and their efforts to suppress freedom.

President Obama is just not up to the job!
