Obama Administration To UN- Sorry That America Is So Awful. In Fairness, We Inherited This Lousy Country But Are Working On Remaking It

If you are on blood pressure medication be sure to take it before reading this.

In its first-ever report to the U.N. Human Rights Council on conditions in the United States, the State Department said Monday that some Americans, notably minorities, are still victims of discrimination. Despite success in reforming such inequities as slavery and the denial of women's right to vote, the department said, considerable progress is still needed.

"Although we have made great strides, work remains to meet our goal of ensuring equality before the law for all," it said.

The report noted that although the U.S. now has an African-American president and that women and Hispanics have won greater social and economic success, large segments of American society suffer from unfair policies and practices.

High unemployment rates, hate crime, poverty, poor housing, lack of access to health care and discriminatory hiring practices are among the challenges the report identified as affecting blacks, Latinos, Muslims, South Asians, Native Americans and gays and lesbians in the United States.

None of these things are "human rights" violations. They are not government enforced privations but simply the ebbs and flow of life. I hate to break it to Team Obama but not living in some sort of liberal utopia isn't a human rights violation.

But don't worry, Obama is working really hard on fixing America and the suggestion box is open.

It also said the report did not reflect "doubt in the ability of the American political system to deliver progress for its citizens."

At the same time, it said that the U.S. welcomed "observations and recommendations" from council members "that can help us on that road to a more perfect union."

Here's the list of members of the UN Human Rights Council. There are some nice enough countries on there (Chile, France, South Korea, Japan, the UK) but none that I think we need any help from.

On the other hand, there are plenty of disgusting countries like China, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Libya and Russia. Read the US' own human rights reports on these countries and then tell me what in the world they have to teach America about improving human rights or helping us on a "road to a more perfect union". It makes as much sense to have countries like that on a "Human Rights Council" as it does to put a KKK Grand Wizard on the board of the Anti-Defamation League.

What in the world is the US doing sitting on a council about Human Rights that includes these serial abusers?

Yet America under Obama is willing to go along with this absurdity in the name of furthering international comity. The fact that we participate in this sham of a council only elevates the abusers and lowers America's standing.

The sad truth is Obama simply sees America as no better than any other nation on the UN roll call and in fact worse than quite a few.
