Default US exits UN Human Rights Council

U.S. Quits UN Human Rights Council, Saying It’s Anti-Israel

"She [US Ambassador Nikki Haley] said the decision was an affirmation of U.S. respect for human rights, a commitment that “does not allow us to remain a part of a hypocritical and self-serving organization that makes a mockery of human rights.

Well ain't that just the funniest thing you've ever heard

"...an affirmation of U.S. respect for human rights, a commitment that “does not allow us to remain a part of a hypocritical and self-serving organization that makes a mockery of human rights.

How long was her nose by the time she got the entire sentence spit out?

Things have gotten to the point that I'm ready to pitch a tent myself: On the White House Lawn

It does say that the US has been critical of the Council since 2006, but it wasn't until they turned on this administration for it's recent immigration debacle that a threat to pull out was sincere. Most supported staying active and trying to initiate reform. So much for that. I wonder if we're now on their radar for violations.
