Fair Dinkum, with this sub-title “UN resolutions reveal the West is opposed to international democracy, while it tries to block attempts directed against racism and Xenophobia”
The UN Human Rights Council has just concluded its 51st session, adopting 41 resolutions and decisions. Examining the way countries vote on these resolutions reveals much about the hypocrisy of Western values, and that all their talk of democracy, equity, and valuing human rights is just meaningless rhetoric – a fact that can be observed in two important resolutions just passed by the UNHRC.
One UNHRC resolution was titled “from rhetoric to reality: a global call for concrete action against racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance.”
We can see clearly what this resolution stands for. Nine countries opposed the motion – in other words, nine countries oppose concrete action being taken against racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and intolerance. Who are the nine countries? They are predominantly Western nations – France, Germany, Montenegro, Netherlands, Poland, Ukraine, the UK and the USA.
Only seven countries abstained most likely for geopolitical reasons, meaning they didn’t want to offend the US and their odious Rules Based. Among the countries abstaining were Japan, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Marshall Islands and South Korea. The Marshall Islands is a US colony, while Japan and South Korea, which are very much under the control of the Rules Based Order; understand racism, xenophobia and intolerance and couldn’t bring themselves to vote against the resolution, but neither did they want to offend the US, and so these countries chose the safe option of abstaining.
A total of 31 countries supported the resolution. Not one was a Western country or a member of the odious Rules Based Order. Included among the countries supporting the resolution were Benin, Brazil, China, Cuba, Gabon, Honduras, India, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Mexico, Nepal, Pakistan and Paraguay.
A second resolution passed by the UN Human Rights Council called for the promotion of “a democratic and equitable international order”. In other words, this resolution is about empowering international democracy and equity for all nations of the world, not just the so-called Rules Based Order collective which comprises of a tiny club of Western countries incestuously tied to the bosom of the US Government.
A total of 29 countries voted in favour of the resolution. Three countries abstained while 14 countries opposed the motion. It is not surprising that the 14 countries opposing the resolution were all Western nations operating under the collective odious entity that calls itself the Rules Based Order. They included Finland, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Ukraine, UK and the US. Japan and South Korea also opposed the motion perhaps because these two nations are mere vassals of US imperialism and seek comfort in the Rules Based Order hoping to gain something out of it, but they never do. The countries voting in favour of the resolution were just about every other country on the planet outside of the West, predominately in the Global South.
These two resolutions reveal the Great Lie of the US and its allies when they claim they stand for democracy and human rights. The evidence is there. They don’t support these values at all. Indeed, they oppose democracy and equity and support racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and intolerance. And these are the values of the Rules Based Order that Australia also embodies as a member of this club.
The West is increasingly becoming isolated from the international community a pariah collection of nations that embody no values whatsoever other than greed and control of the planet’s resources. The two UN resolutions speak for themselves.
