The U.S. Wanted to Discuss Iran. Russia Brought Up Black Lives Matter.
As the Trump administration each day denounces protesters on the streets of this country his UN Ambassador praises protesters in Iran who are opposing that government. Talk about hypocrites using issues of protest that further their agenda but cry foul when the situation presents itself against themselves. While our congress and local state government pass legislation against lawful protest by its citizenry, on the international scene our representatives we exhibit our bigotry.
“UNITED NATIONS — Efforts by the Trump administration to marshal a muscular international response to Iran’s crackdown on anti-government protesters appeared to backfire on Friday, as members of the United Nations Security Council instead used a special session called by the United States to lecture the American ambassador on the proper purpose of the body and to reaffirm support for the Iran nuclear agreement.”
That effort by this country was brought center stage by the same government we are fighting against because of their citizens right to protest is being taken down by police action. Where’s the embarrassment by ambassador Haley knowing all too well the efforts by our country to cull protest by american citizens, she still unabashedly stands and humiliates herself on the international stage
“It was an afternoon of high diplomatic theater that began with a passionate denunciation of Iran’s “oppressive government” by the American ambassador, Nikki R. Haley, and ended with the Iranian ambassador delivering a lengthy history of popular revolt in the United States — from the violent demonstrations at the Democratic National Convention in 1968 to the Occupy Wall Street protests in 2011.
In the interim, Council members did, one by one, condemn the Iranian government’s response during more than a week of protests. As of Friday, more than 20 people had been killed and hundreds had been arrested. The authorities have blocked access to social media and have blamed foreign “enemies” for instigating the unrest, a common refrain at times of upheaval that in this case the government has provided no evidence to support.
In her remarks, Ms. Haley said that the United States would remain steadfastly behind the Iranian protesters.
“Let there be no doubt whatsoever,” she said, “the United States stands unapologetically with those in Iran who seek freedom for themselves.”
But, the United Nations members are not fooled by this shameful display by the Trump Administration, all of the veto nations stand firm against this fallacy of injustice.
Keep up the fight Black Lives Matter and all the other groups who fight each day for our freedom to protest injustice by our government.
