Opponents and liberty-minded activists are up in arms over the fact that the genocidal mass-murderer ruling over Sudan, Islamist Omar al-Bashir, is set to be elected to the United Nations Human Rights Council. Observers said the move will further discredit an institution that has already become a laughing stock around the world for appointing so many communist and Islamic dictatorships as supposed guardians of human rights.
The UN itself is also under fire from all sides for a seemingly never-ending parade of scandals. Among the more recent outrages: allowing its “peace keeping” troops to continue engaging in systematic sex crimes worldwide; handing U.S. technology to the regimes ruling Iran and North Korea; criticizing the United States and Canada for bogus abuses; fabricating climate hysteria to justify its power grabs; using U.S. taxpayers’ money on forced abortions in China; and much more.
Critics say it has become increasingly clear that the lawless UN cannot be reformed.
Ironically, the UN resolution that created the dubious global rights body stated that "members elected to the Council shall uphold the highest standards in the promotion and protection of human rights." Even using the UN’s own questionable definitions of “human rights” — completely alien to American notions of individual rights — the council’s membership makes an absolute mockery of the resolution and the idea of protecting human rights.

So a mass murderer with International warrants out for his arrest on charges of war crimes, genocide, and crimes against humanity can now sit oin a chair reserved supposedly for those that oppose his exact crimes. You just can't make this stuff up anymore.
