With the long list of idiotic and irrational things the United Nations has done over the years, it's a no brainer for me to stop supporting them. We not only give 22% of their operating budget - we also give them the building in New York.
It's time for all of that to stop.
This terrible organization has proven to be useless time and again, yet it bumbles on. It has done nothing to help relieve the issues in Syria. It has done nothing to stop the war in Ukraine. It's even handed rockets back over to Hamas, a terrorist organization, to be shot at innocent civilians. It's truly fallen very low.
Thanks, in large part, to the Left, which continues to strange obsession with the organization. An organization once founded on Democracy and Freedom, but now, it has Saudi Arabia on it's human right's council. The absurdity of one of the World's leading abusers of it's own people plain to see. It wasn't enough that the first attempt at a central peace keeper body, determined to help prevent wars and help alleviate suffering around the World, failed utterly as well. The League of Nations, envisioned by known racist and KKK support, Democrat President Woodrow Wilson.
And yet, here we are again, with the UN's braindead focus on made up claims instead of reality.
In a report released yesterday, entitled “Cyber Violence Against Women And Girls: A Global Wake-up Call,” UN Women, the group behind last year’s risible “He for She” campaign, called on governments to use their “licensing prerogative” to ensure that “telecoms and search engines” are only “allowed to connect with the public” if they “supervise content and its dissemination.”
In other words, if search engines and ISPs don’t comply with a list of the UN’s censorship demands, the UN wants national governments to cut off their access to the public.
So, what sort of content does the UN want to censor? ISIS recruitment videos, perhaps, which lure women into lives of rape and servitude? Live-streamed executions from Syria? Revenge porn or snuff videos? There’s no shortage of dangerous and potentially traumatising content on the web, after all, much of it disproportionately affecting women.
Alas not. The UN is hung up on “cyber violence against women,” a Kafkaesque term that is apparently shorthand for “women being criticised on the internet.” At least, that’s how at least two attendees at the launch of the UN report, published by the United Nations Broadband Commission, explained it yesterday.
It's sad to see the UN members must go down their list of all the things wrong in the world and find online comments to be the cause of the World's problems, but it has now happened. It's even sadder than going down the list and complaining about Jews building homes in Jerusalem.
The UN outright giving a platform to attack free speech and capitalism is not surprising. In most of these nations, they don't have freedom of speech and the Governments control the internet and media. That's why they deem it rational to criticize freedom of speech online - it's part of how they conduct themselves daily. To have a world outside of their control weakens their ability to control minds and bodies.
And now, the statism is being accepted by the West. Spearheaded by none other than the Social Justice Warrior brigade we have all come to recognize as anti-GamerGate:
According to feminist culture critic Anita Sarkeesian, who spoke at the event, online “harassment” doesn’t simply consist of what is “legal and illegal,” but “also the day-to-day grind of ‘you’re a liar’ and ‘you suck,’ including all of these hate videos that attack us on a regular basis.”
Unable to prove that they are the victims of a wave of “misogynistic hate” – no bomb threat against a feminist critic of video games has ever been deemed credible and there are serious doubts about threats supposedly levelled at transsexual activist Brianna Wu – feminists are trying to redefine violence and harassment to include disobliging tweets and criticisms of their work.
In other words: someone said “you suck” to Anita Sarkeesian and now we have to censor the internetThis is the PC culture reaching it's inevitable next stage. A blurring between the every day lives of regular people, with international politics, as it tries to silence it's critics. Gamers have now been thrown into the larger conflict. A World Wide conflict between freedom and oppression.
Sadly, there are those on one side of history, those on the far Left in the West making common cause with those that spread Islamofacism across the globe, who both see free speech as a bulkward against their philosophies, in need of removal.
Those on the other side might not like it, but this conflict has been trust upon us and our generation.
It's up to us, those that love our individual freedoms - who enjoy our right to speak out as we please, even if that offends someone - to now fight for that right. Because once freedom is gone - it's going to be even more difficult to get it back. Let's not let that happen.
