Obama Betrays Arizona to Thuggish "Human Rights" Council

For the Malignant Narcissist in Chief, siding with Mexico against an American state it is subjecting to hostile and illegal colonization wasn't sufficiently treasonous. Now he has betrayed Arizona to the club of knuckle-dragging totalitarian goons calling themselves the United Nations Human Rights Council.

Like all decent informed Americans, the Governor is understandably enraged:

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer demanded Friday that a reference to the state's controversial immigration law be removed from a State Department report to the United Nations' human rights commissioner.
The U.S. included its legal challenge to the law on a list of ways the federal government is protecting human rights.
In a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Brewer says it is "downright offensive" that a state law would be included in the report, which was drafted as part of a UN review of human rights in all member nations every four years.
"The idea of our own American government submitting the duly enacted laws of a state of the United States to 'review' by the United Nations is internationalism run amok and unconstitutional," Brewer wrote.

Not to mention farcical. Arizona has been denounced to the UN for attempting to take mild, commonsense steps toward enforcing federal immigration law, while explicitly forbidding "racial profiling." To call this a human rights violation is leftist hyperbole taken well beyond the point of self-parody. In contrast, those whom our quisling rulers put in a position to judge Arizona really do violate human rights, as American Thinker documents.

Anne Bayefsky, long in the forefront of highlighting U.N. abuses, was appalled that in May of 2010, Libya was to be included in the U.N. Human Rights Council. Although the United States Department has stated that in "Libya there is routine torture and abuse of detainees, legally-sanctioned amputations and flogging, sentencing of political opposition members without trial, [and] indefinite detention of women and girls 'suspected of violating moral codes, …'" the Obama administration made no move to deny Libya a seat.
The Council also comprises Malaysia, Mauritania, Uganda, Angola, and Qatar. In Uganda, "wife-beating [is] a husband's prerogative." Monitoring of internet chat rooms and widespread rape of inmates occurs in Angola, while "in Malaysia, religious authorities arrest 'deviants' in order to return them to the 'true path of Islam.'" In Qatar, "the law calls for 10 year sentences for individuals proselytizing anything but Islam, [and] conversion away from Islam is a capital offense." Furthermore, "the legal system treats with leniency men who murder women where there has been 'immodesty' on the part of the victim." Syria promotes the infamous blood libel against Israel, and Algeria describes Israelis as "butchers."
Many of these Council members criticize free speech, constantly denounce Israel, exonerate Muslim extremists, and deny basic freedoms to their own people. In fact, Israel-bashing is a persistent theme of the Council. Furthermore, at no time have Iranian calls for genocide been criticized by this body.
Notwithstanding all this, joining the Council was one of Obama's priorities, and this occurred in May of 2009. Thus, Obama was content with joining current Council members like Saudi Arabia, China, Cuba, Russia, Egypt, and Kyrgyzstan. Previously, "Bush had decided not to seek a seat on the Council on the grounds that the reform had been a sham."

Obama is not just an incompetent boob. He is a traitor, who explicitly sides with America's enemies against America's interests, and who is working to submit our country to the rule of international bodies that obviously do not mean us well.
