This is a very true statement and anyone who disagrees has no idea what the U.N. is for. If the U.N. has any business examining the U.S. the only real issue it has any clout over is firearm matters (but even that is a stretch). Other than that, the U.N. is a place for all countries to come together and condemn a country for doing something so abhorrent as to be considered against basic human rights. The U.S. is not in that discussion. We do some things wrong and some things right, all of which is mandated from an hierarchical system (government) that has many regulations and checks and balances. Almost everything that is in the news regarding anything that has been done to humans is referencing 1% or less of the people involved in the situation. That's every country in the world and none of them can point fingers without there being reports for every single country (yes, even the socialist countries you Liberals love do things that impact human rights, look it up).
The U.N. isn't there to fight against those imperfect situations. They exist. No country in the world has found any real answers to prevent bad things from happening to tiny percentages of all demographics. In some areas, the U.S. is better than others and in other areas, they aren't. The U.N. is there to (in the context of this article) fight against the countries that do things that impact a large percentage of groups of people or do harm to other countries. Someone above made a snide remark about the immigration family issue. Yes, it is an issue. Yes, it's only happening to less than 1% of all families coming through (after you remove the children who are known criminals or ones who are found to be brought over under false pretenses, look it up). And yes, it does happen in civilized countries all over the world (even the ones Americans who hate America claim are so much better than us).
If the U.N. truly wants to use their purpose to address that, they'd go after Mexico. After all, there is an entire 150 million strong political party in America who claims Mexico is so overrun with cartels, rapers, and slave traders that their people are fleeing by the millions to another country. If the problem is that bad, the less than 1% of families being split is not even a blip on the U.N.s' radar. Every country has problems and the U.N. is not there to govern over them. Considering the severity of most of America's problems are based on opinion, it's even more laughable that the U.N. took this kind of action to be petty.
Yet, even faced with the logic of it all, people who belong to a political party STILL say ridiculously ignorant things to use something like this as fodder to bolster their parties self image. That's the real tragedy. Try being an American. Not a Partisan.
