Pointing to the killing of Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson along with subsequent unrest in Ferguson and policing issues, the dictator-dominated United Nations just launched another brazen assault on America, U.S. sovereignty, and the gun rights of Americans. UN boss Ban Ki-moon (shown), the global body’s “Human Rights Council,” and even the UN “Committee against Torture” all took turns lambasting the United States as an alleged stronghold of systemic racism and police brutality. To fix the problems, the UN argued, Americans and their elected officials must submit to the demands of self-styled global “authorities” — including more unconstitutional gun control to further restrict access to firearms, and UN rules for police.
The latest series of condemnations and directives offered by the controversial global outfit are merely the most recent in a developing pattern. Indeed, as The New American has documented for years, the phony outrage by the planetary body follows an accelerating spate of UN attacks on America and its constitutional system of federalism and limited government. The UN complaints, meanwhile, increasingly come with a growing list of UN demands on how local, state, and federal authorities must allegedly bow down to what globalist bureaucrats describe as “international law.”
The most recent UN meddling in U.S. affairs began shortly after the grand jury’s decision not to indict Officer Wilson for the slaying of Brown. In the immediate aftermath, UN boss Ban, perhaps misunderstanding the nature of his job as chief of an organization dominated by autocratic and oftentimes brutal regimes, offered some unsolicited advice to both protesters and law enforcement officials. Speaking through a spokesperson, Ban, who in August demanded that local police in Ferguson adhere to “international standards,” called on both demonstrators and police to be “peaceful.”
“[The Secretary-General] appeals to all those in Ferguson and throughout the United States who felt disappointment at the grand jury’s decision to make their voices heard peacefully and to refrain from any violence,” UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters at a news conference, as if it were totally normal for the UN to involve itself in the affairs of an American town and dispense instructions to U.S. protesters. “He also calls on law enforcement authorities, whether at federal, state, or at the local level, to protect the rights of people to demonstrate peacefully and to express their opinions peacefully.”
According to Ban’s spokesman, the UN boss also wanted to echo the appeal made by Michael Brown’s parents to “turn this difficult time into ‘positive change.’ ” Ban, whose own UN “peacekeeping” forces have been exposed slaughtering and raping civilians systematically all across Africa and beyond, said his thoughts were “first and foremost” with Brown’s family and with the “entire Ferguson community.” The establishment press celebrated Ban’s involvement.
Also on November 25, the UN “Human Rights Council” — a widely ridiculed body that is literally packed with barbaric communist and Islamist regimes — also condemned the United States over alleged racism and police brutality. “I am deeply concerned at the disproportionate number of young African Americans who die in encounters with police officers, as well as the disproportionate number of African Americans in U.S. prisons and the disproportionate number of African Americans on Death Row,” complained UN “High Commissioner for Human Rights,” Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein of Jordan, in a statement released by his office.
