So now the UN has weighed in on things occurring in the USA.
www.yahoo.com...



Geneva (AFP) - A UN committee tasked with combatting racism has issued a formal "early warning" over conditions in the United States, a rare move often used to signal the potential of a looming civil conflict. The United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination said it had invoked its "early warning and urgent action procedure" because of the proliferation of racist demonstrations in the US.

So apparently the UN has a problem with freedom of speech?



"We are alarmed by the racist demonstrations, with overtly racist slogans, chants and salutes by white nationalists, neo-Nazis, and the Ku Klux Klan, promoting white supremacy and inciting racial discrimination and hatred," committee head Anastasia Crickley said in a statement.

So a free country whose citizens have a legal right to demonstrate peacefully is now "alarming" to the UN?
If people are only allowed to demonstrate with UN approved issues there will be no opposition.

Or is this just another attempt to slander the potus?



The US warning marks the seventh such alert issued in the past decade. They mainly concern countries gripped by ethnic and religious strife, including Burundi, Nigeria, Iraq and Ivory Coast.


I will leave these here.



The threat or fear of violence should not become an excuse or justification for restricting freedom of speech.
Alan Dershowitz




Freedom of speech means freedom for those who you despise, and freedom to express the most despicable views. It also means that the government cannot pick and choose which expressions to authorize and which to prevent.

Maybe when the protests become "peaceful". Looks like the White Nationalists and nazi's have learned a lot from Isis, with the car-turned-weapon.

What are you opposing? Equality?
