Obama's Bashing USA Continues.....He Sends Report To UN Saying US Has Human Rights Shortcomings

( OBAMA's BULLCrap!) US admits human rights shortcomings in UN report



The Obama administration has told the United Nations that America’s human rights record is less than perfect but stressed that the U.S. political system has built-in safeguards that promote improvements.

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.

The report, which drew on meetings that U.S. officials held with various groups around the country since January, also cited concerns from civil rights activists and citizens related to immigration and racial profiling by law enforcement agencies.

The 29-page report was submitted to the Human Rights Council on Friday but was not published until Monday. Members of the council, which the United States joined only last year, are required to submit reviews of their rights records. The report was the first “Universal Periodic Review” produced by the U.S.

In one of his first moves to reach out to the international community, President Barack Obama decided that the U.S. should run for a seat on the council. The Bush administration had shunned the panel for years over its alleged disproportionate criticism of Israel and membership that includes repressive regimes.

The report's findings were cautiously welcomed by human rights activists but will likely draw fire from conservatives who opposed joining the council. They said the U.S. should not be judged by countries with poor human rights records.

The administration sought to rebuff such criticism in the report, saying its participation in the review was not an acknowledgment "of commonality with states that systematically abuse human rights." It also said the report did not reflect "doubt in the ability of the American political system to deliver progress for its citizens."

Wild Thing's comment........

WOW! We made the list and we didn’t “behead” anyone!!!!!! Imagine that!

So Obama is continuing his world wide apology tour. This time to the UN. Just freakin’ great.

The USA has been as close to perfect as any nation can be.

I want to see Human Rights records for all Islamic countries. Now there’s a human right’s violation!

Obama, you've been in office almost two years and you haven't improved anything

Yes, "large segments of American society suffer from unfair policies and practices"-- anyone who hold or expresses conservative and/or patriotic views may be called a "rightwing extremist" and could be investigated for not liking the 9/11 conquest mosque. Yes, political correctness and other left/liberal hostility to the majority of americans' viewoint is a great offense against human rights. November, both 2010 and 2012, can't come soon enough.

"Large segments of the society suffer from unfair policies and practices".

Have to agree with Barry Sotero on this one.

Since he's become President the segments of the American Society suffering from unfair policies and practices, has increased to include most of the tax paying citizens of this United States.

Of course this is not Human Rights violation, per se, it's just the Progressive System of Socialism, introduced by Barry and the Dems..

I agree with you. This so called Leader of the Free World, seems to go out his way to denigrate and demean his own Country. For the life of me. I cannot see any rational reason why he would do so.

Probably because there is no rational reason.

Hurry Up November!!!!!

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." These human rights, UN! How 'bout them apples!

As long as Obama is in the Whitehouse we are not going to be secure in our persons and certainly not in our property. The UN should be aware that anything they agree with Obama on they are going to have to apologize to the American People for later. It will cost them plenty.
