The situation at our southern border is upsetting to a lot of people, and understandably so. But the U.N. Human Rights Council’s take is pretty rich:
The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights “expressed deep concern over recent policies adopted by the United States that led to the forceful separation of children from their families..that any State would seek to deter parents by inflicting abuse on children was unconscionable.”

As a general rule, if you’re going to stake out the moral high ground when it comes to human rights, you’d better not be standing in quicksand.
Same High Commissioner refused to denounce the terror attacks from Gaza into Israel last month.

Spare us. These are the same despicable POS's that cheer when HAMAS rains rockets into Israel.

The Human Rights Council is an absolute joke. Their moral outrage couldn’t ring any hollower.
Remind me, which countries are on the Human Rights Council?

The UN condemns Israel on a daily basis, and has some of the most brutal nations on their human rights council. Not exactly your strongest way to make your point.

UN Human Rights council members. Egypt, Rwanda, Cuba, Venezuela, China, India, Afghanistan, Congo, Ethiopia, Iraq, Pakistan, Qatar. I think the UN council may want to sit this one out.

Sit all of it out, U.N.
