    UN Tamping Down Free Speech On Mass Immigration?

    Just another reason why we need to ditch the UN

    “One basic element of this new agreement is the extension of the definition of hate speech,” de Graaff says. “The agreement wants to criminalize migration speech. Criticism of migration will become a criminal offense. Media outlets that give room to criticism of migration can be shut down.”



    That last sentence is no exaggeration. The U.N. Human Rights Office of the High Commissioner posted onto its website the text of an ominous Nov. 20 speech given by Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights Andrew Gilmour. The title of the speech alone shows the union is not even trying to hide its agenda: “Words Matter: Role and Responsibility of the media in shaping public perceptions about migrants and refugees and promoting inclusive societies.”

    Gilmour begins his speech with a sweeping declaration highlighting just how unrestrained the UN sees itself in its machinations for power.

    “Hate crimes against migrants are an especially unpleasant manifestation of what I see as an almost global backlash against human rights,” he bluntly asserts. In one sentence Gilmour weds the mass migration of peoples into sovereign nations with the entire concept of human rights itself. From there it is easy to justify a stern authoritarian approach to crushing “racism” and “xenophobia.” And Gilmour lets it be known that command of the media is to be a key part of the global compact’s effort to do just that:

    “In its Objective 17, the Global Compact commits States and other stakeholders to promote quality reporting by media outlets of migration-related issues and terminology, to investing in ethical reporting standards and advertising, and to stopping allocation of public funding or material support to media outlets that systematically promote intolerance, xenophobia, racism and other forms of discrimination against migrants. These are crucial points we all need to build on.”

    Well that is something the US cannot back because of our first amendment. I am curious to see what will happen. I think many countries have similar rights of the press and free speech.

    I think this is something that won't get passed.

    Most countries do not have free speech like we do.

    It is just the fact that they are trying, and this is just another small example of the totalitarianism latent in the heart of leftists...

    I would love to see the US dissolve its relationship with the UN and kick them off American soil, or at least start charging them rent.

    The Muslims in the U.N. are keen on suppressing free speech as much if not more than the liberals. Virtually every year the U.N. announces a plan to quash speech that bothers them.

    Start with charging them a butt-ton of rent. If they balk, THEN kick them out. Give them 30 days, then anything not removed will be seized.

    Charge them rent on what? They own the land, they own the buildings, and they long ago repaid the US government loan used to finance construction. They already pay rent on the few off-site premises they use.
