“Responsible nations must not shrink from scrutiny of their human rights record. Rather, they should be transparent with the intent to grow and do better.”
Democrats, specifically members of the Biden administration, frequently insult the United States of America by claiming that our country has a problem of systemic racism.
The only thing that could be worse is for them to invite a corrupt, hypocritical body like the United Nations to investigate those claims.
They did just that.
Matthew Lee of the Associated Press:
US invites UN’s racism and human rights envoys to visit
The Biden administration is formally inviting United Nations racism and human rights envoys to visit the United States amid a contentious ongoing domestic debate over the treatment of minorities in America.
The State Department announced late Tuesday that the administration would issue a standing invitation to all U.N. envoys, known as special rapporteurs, who compile information on race and discrimination and report back to the world body.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken also welcomed the adoption of a resolution by the Geneva-based U.N. Human Rights Council to address racism directed against Africans and people of African descent.
In a statement, Blinken said President Joe Biden’s administration “is deeply dedicated to addressing racial injustice and inequities at home and abroad.”
He said the administration would “lead by example” on the global stage by allowing international scrutiny of its own issues and publicly confronting them.
See Blinken’s tweet below:
Responsible nations must not shrink from scrutiny of their human rights record. Rather, they should be transparent with the intent to grow and do better. That is why I'm announcing a formal invitation for @UN Special Rapporteur on contemporary forms of racism to visit the U.S.

There are countries where slavery still exists, and China has people in concentration camps, but the UN is coming to America to investigate us?
Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) spoke to Laura Ingraham about this last night:
It's disgraceful that President Biden and Secretary Blinken have invited the UN to our country to review human rights abuses.

Blinken was also called out in a recent editorial from the Wall Street Journal:
Mr. Blinken rightly says “great nations such as ours do not hide from our shortcomings.” But the U.S. doesn’t hide from its shortcomings: All across America, citizens and legislators are debating policing, while the Minneapolis cop responsible for George Floyd’s death was convicted of murder and sentenced to more than 22 years in prison. By contrast, will any of the police now cracking heads in Havana ever be held to account?
It’s easy to write Mr. Blinken’s remarks off as naive. But they are dangerous. They come at a moment when China is committing genocide against its Uyghur minority, when Cubans are risking their lives to claim their freedom, and when Moscow has jailed a man walking around Red Square in a T-shirt saying “Freedom for Navalny,” a reference to imprisoned opposition leader Alexei Navalny. The leaders in these unfree nations are all taking President Biden’s measure.
Perhaps while the UN is here, they could look in on the American citizens the Biden administration has been holding in solitary confinement for months without trial over January 6th.
