In case you needed further proof the UN is a corrupt institution

The United Nations can’t muster enough votes in the General Assembly to denounce the rape, murder, torture, and kidnapping of innocent civilians.

You might think that puts a dent or two into its claims of moral authority. You would be wrong, because the countries who wouldn’t vote to condemn Hamas think that the terrorism was justified, and the countries who voted to condemn Hamas don’t have the courage to admit that barbarians run much of the world.

The UN is a ridiculous institution. A farce. It exists mainly for two reasons: 1) to provide a convenient excuse for graft and nice paid vacations to New York City for third-world dictators, and 2) a place to have secret negotiations with adversaries that could take place nowhere else.

The value of #2 isn’t worth the bother of housing such a corrupt institution in our nation, or paying so many taxpayer dollars to corrupt bureaucrats.

Case in point: the upcoming Chair of the UN Human Rights Commission is the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Hillel Neuer, the head of the U.N. watchdog U.N. Watch, shared a letter from Human Rights Council president Vaclav Balek, in which he announced that Ambassador Ali Bahreini of Iran would lead the next gathering of the Social Forum in November.

The forum is a gathering that convenes U.N members, non-governmental organizations, and other international organizations for a discussion every year. The next forum’s focus is “the contribution of science, technology and innovation to the promotion of human rights, including in the context of post-pandemic recovery.”

This isn’t the first U.N. body in which Iran has recently won a prominent role. U.N. members elected Iran to the Commission on the Status of Women in 2021, though it was later removed after the Iranian regime met mass protests last year with indiscriminate violence.

With those demonstrations now largely quashed, Iran has somewhat rehabilitated its reputation at the U.N. and won other posts, and Neuer criticized the U.S. and other countries for failing to block Iran’s appointment to those posts. “The criminal regime in Iran—which tortures protesters, poisons schoolgirls and spreads terrorism worldwide—was recently elected to the U.N. Commission on Crime Prevention. While the U.S. and allies did stop Russia from getting elected, on Iran they said and did nothing,” he wrote.

In a letter to Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Neuer called on the U.S. to convene the U.N.’s Economic and Social Council to reverse Iran’s appointment to the commission on crime prevention.

Yes, that Iran. Iran keeps killing its young women for having the courage not to wear a head scarf, so it knows a thing or two about protecting human rights.

We are also talking about the same Iran which is currently funding Hamas, which may explain why the United Nations can’t gin up the courage to condemn Hamas terrorism. Their moral exemplar is promoting and funding the barbarity.

Iran is arguably one of the worst abusers of human rights in the world today, although it has serious competitors. Perhaps Libya is worse, but Libya is barely a state anymore. It is a tribal region that has revived slavery.

So many of our elite institutions today are shams, existing solely for the benefit of a preening global elite who pretend to care for humanity while looking out for nobody but themselves. That Americans are forced to fund such a corrupt institution is a farce.
