The United Nations: An International Political Class Just as Useless As The American Political Class

For years we have pointed out how corrupt, inefficient, ineffective and expensive the Federal government is. It wastes money on stupid projects and priorities, never successfully resolves major issues facing Americans, and continues to enrich members of Congress, the executive branch and Federal bureaucracy. And all the while incurring over $21 TRILLION in national debt, a debt load that our kids and grandkids will be paying back for decades.

But there is also no doubt that the international version of the Federal government, the United Nations, can be just as ineffective and expensive than the American political class in Washington. A recent article by Elliot Kaufman in the Wall Street Journal pointed out how bad the United Nations is:
  • Over time, some of the worst human rights violating nations, e.g. Saudi Arabia (which suppresses women’s rights), Venezuela (an oppressive regime whose citizens are literally starving to death), China (a country that locks up Christians and Muslims adherents who dare to speak out) , and Pakistan have headed up the UN Human Rights Council.
  • Although the World Economic Forum ranks Iran 140th out of 144 nations when it comes to “parity between the sexes,” the UN saw it fit to allow Iran to be on the the board of the UN organization “dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women.”
  • A World Conference Against Racism degenerated into an anti-Israel hatefest which eventually led to the UN Human Rights Council issuing 78 anti-Israel resolutions despite Israel being one of the most modern in the world when it comes to women’s rights, equality, and democracy.
  • The UN gave Syria a leadership role on the Special Committee on Decolonization despite Syria’s leader and government using chemical warfare to to kill its own citizens and repeated the same mistake in both 2016 and 2018.
  • The UN gave departed Cuban leader Fidel Castro a minute of silent respect when he died even though he ran an oppressive and deadly dictatorship for decades, imprisoning and killing any and all Cuban dissidents.
But it is not just these high level examples of bureaucracy insanity that make the UN an embarrassment. Try to come up with just one example where the UN helped prevent violence and wars. Not in Serbia, not in Rwanda, not in Syria, not in Korea, nowhere. Name a country where it stepped in to force an oppressive government grant more freedom and to respect and take better care of its citizens, not in Iran, not in Saudi Arabia, not in China, not in Syria, nowhere. Name a drug cartel or international drug running crime syndicate it has taken apart, never happened. 

As we have pointed out many times, Einstein once said that, “the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” Nowhere is this more true than the United Nations, an international greedy and self entitled political class. It is a useless and expensive taxpayer funded entity that never gets anything done, it deserves to die and put the taxpayer funding to better use.
