Remember last June when then-U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley announced that the U.S. would be withdrawing from the U.N. Human Rights Council? The following month, Haley absolutely blistered the UNHRC at the Heritage Foundation, saying it has “provided cover, not condemnation, for the world’s most inhumane regimes. It has been a bully pulpit for human rights violators.”
Haley took a lot of heat from our moral lefty betters for that, but guess what: She was absolutely right.
Case in point:

BREAKING: Venezuela beats Costa Rica by 9 votes to win election to UN Human Rights Council.
Here are the % of votes received by top abusers just elected:
?? Venezuela: 54%
?? Mauritania: 89%
?? Libya: 87%
?? Sudan: 91%

Quite an illustrious bunch. Big congrats to Venezuela. Apparently starving your own people and mowing them down with military vehicles will land you a plum seat on the U.N. Human Rights Council.

“Human rights” sure have come a long way!
People think the convergence between The Onion and our politics is new, but they just haven't been paying attention to the United Nations Human Rights Council (which, I guess, is understandable). https://t.co/u9qHHvftMk

Absolutely sickening & as far as I'm concerned the UN should no longer exist if this is what they consider appropriate.
