A United Nations Committee responsible for combating racism globally issued an “early warning” for the United States, citing a growth in “alarming racism” trends.
Anastasia Crickley, chairwoman of U.N. Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD), issued a statement Tuesday in response to the violence that erupted in Charlottesville, Virginia, Aug. 12 during a white nationalist rally.
“We are alarmed by the racist demonstrations, with overtly racist slogans, chants and salutes by white nationalists, neo-Nazis, and the Ku Klux Klan, promoting white supremacy and inciting racial discrimination and hatred,” Crickley said.
According to Stock Board Asset, the early warning from the UN is rare and has been issued in the past prior to civil conflicts.
The warning has only been issued a few time in the past 10 years, where it came for places like Burundi, Iraq, Ivory Coast, Kyrgyzstan and Nigeria.
“In a decision issued under its ‘early warning and urgent action’ procedure, the Committee, which monitors implementation of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, stated ‘there should be no place in the world for racist white supremacist ideas or any similar ideologies that reject the core human rights principles of human dignity and equality,’” Crickley said.
She continued: “In addition to the criminal investigation of the individual who ploughed his car into a crowd of peaceful protesters killing a woman, the UN experts asked the US authorities to undertake concrete measures “to address the root causes of the proliferation of such racist manifestations.”
The early warning from the UN is not only rare, but it echoes talking points from Democrats that President Donald Trump has not adequately disavowed white nationalists and neo-Nazis.
Trump has been criticized in the mainstream media for not sufficiently condemning white nationalists and racists even though he has issued a slew statements since the tragic events, starting with the day they took place.
Trump also denounced hate groups Aug. 14 during an announcement from the White House, specifically calling out the hate groups.
“Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans,” Trump said.
As Trump made extremly clear after the tragic event, Americans must come first. If the mainstream media and Democrats would stop trying to divide people, we could come together as one nation.
For an organization as corrupt as the United Nations to start attacking the United States, which has done more to root out racism than virtually any country on earth, is beyond an insult.
It could well be the first step toward an actual attack on liberties Americans hold dear — like the freedom of speech.
It could be dangerous.
