There are UN resolutions that threaten free speech, threaten freedom of religion, threaten parental rights, threaten the right to self defense, etc.
Do some more research.
I know of no such resolutions, and cannot find any after a search - only to some conspiracy sites that say they exist but either totally misquote ones
that they link to, or provide no references at all.
16/18 is commonly quted as a threat th "fre speech" -
Resolution 16/18, Combating intolerance, negative stereotyping and stigmatization of, and discrimination, incitement to violence, and violence
against persons based on religion or belief, was adopted by the UN Human Rights Council in March 2011. Among its many specific points, it highlights
barriers to religiously tolerant societies and provides recommendations on how these barriers can be overcome. The resolution calls upon all member
states to foster religious freedom and pluralism, to ensure religious minorities are properly represented, and to consider adopting measures to
criminalize incitement to imminent violence based on religion or belief. Other recommendations include creating government programs to promote
inter-religious tolerance and dialogue, training government employees to be sensitive toward religious sensitivities, and engaging in outreach
However the thrust of it is nothing more than what is already existing even in US law - you do not have "free speech" to threaten to kill or injure
people - this resolution does nothing more than make that explicit when it is based on religion or belief.
Can you please give some examples of what you think these are?
