Stuff it: UN human rights chief says Trump’s attack on media “dangerous”

Zeid all of a sudden concerned with “human rights”

“Freedom of the press” doesn’t give them the right to intentionally misquote and represent what Trump says. Why don’t you stick to what you know best: wasting U.S. taxpayer money.

From NY Post: US President Donald Trump’s criticism of journalists amounts to an attack on the freedom of the press and could provoke violence against reporters, the United Nations’ human rights chief said Wednesday.

Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein said Trump had also made worrying remarks about women, Mexicans and Muslims, and he went on to question the president’s approach to immigration and decision to pardon former Arizona lawman Joe Arpaio.

There was no immediate response from the White House on the wide-ranging rebuke of Trump’s repeated references to the “fake media” and some of his other statements and decisions.

“It’s really quite amazing when you think that freedom of the press, not only sort of a cornerstone of the US Constitution but very much something that the United States defended over the years, is now itself under attack from the president,” the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights said.

“It’s sort of a stunning turnaround. And ultimately the sequence is a dangerous one,” he told a news conference in Geneva.

Referring to the New York Times, Washington Post and CNN, he added: “To call these news organizations ’fake’ does tremendous damage and to refer to individual journalists in this way, I have to ask the question, is this not an incitement for others to attack journalists?”

Zeid voiced concern that a journalist from the Guardian had been “assaulted in the United States most recently” but gave no details.

Trump rounded on journalists last week, calling them “truly dishonest people” and criticizing their coverage of a white supremacist-organized rally in Virginia and the political fallout from his comments that violence there was caused by “many sides.”

Nazi salutes, swastikas, anti-Semitic slurs and racist references to African-Americans had “no place in the United States or beyond,” Zeid said in his first comments on the events in Charlottesville.

Trump has also made worrying remarks about women, Mexicans and Muslims, “mocked a person with disabilities publicly” and issued a directive on a transgender ban in the military, he said.

“The president prides himself as a taboo breaker, indeed his supporters see him as such. But at the time I expressed my feeling that this was grossly irresponsible, because it has consequences, it emboldens those who may think similarly to sharpen their assaults on these communities,” he said.

Zeid voiced deep concern at Trump’s pardon of Arpaio, who was convicted of criminal contempt in a racial profiling case that highlighted tensions over immigration policy.

“Does the president support racial profiling, of Latinos in particular, does he support abuse of prisoners? Arpaio referred at one stage to the open-air prison that he set up as a concentration camp, he later recanted, said it was a joke,” Zeid said. “Does the president support this? These actions have consequences.”

Zeid, comparing the leadership role of a US president to a bus driver, said: ”I almost feel that the president is driving the bus of humanity and we’re careening down a mountain path.

“And in taking these measures, at least from a human rights perspective, it seems to be reckless driving.”

  1. Mr. Zeid, you have this wrong, wrong, wrong!!! What is dangerous is the U.N. The U.N. has been dangerous since its inception. The U.N. is nothing but the headquarters for the New World Order. May the Lord have mercy.

  2. It’s a wonder people like Zeid (ALL THE LIBTARDS) are not simply bleeding all over the outside of their bodies BECAUSE they are soooooooo “THIN SKINNED”!

    Every teeeeny tiny itty bitty little thing Trump says or does, they have to comment on it, day & night.

    Why doesn’t Zeid commend POTUS for the feds’ assistance for Harvey, as Gov. Abbot has done? Or why doesn’t Zeid commend POTUS for calling for a Day of Prayer for the victims of Harvey?

    No one is even allowed to MAKE A JOKE anymore. Picking on 85 year-old Arpaio is a perfect example. Give.It.A.Rest.Already.

    As for the media, Sarah Huckabee was being lamblasted by a male reporter (saw part of the video last night). The heading said that the reporter screamed, I CAN’T TAKE IT ANY MORE!, but I never saw that part; only that he was badgering her about the fact they THEY ALL were merely “journalists” trying to do their job.

    Well, maybe they need to go back to Journalism School & learn the difference between journaling events vs. Op Eds.

  3. Some interesting facts about Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein the POS:

    He is the son of Prince Ra’ad bin Zeid, Lord Chamberlain of Jordan, and his Swedish-born wife. Zeid is the apparent first in line to the throne of the Kingdom of Iraq, with the title of Crown Prince.

    • Aha! So basically he’s whining that the President of the United States is “off script” with the New World Odor. “Journalists” are lie readers who stay on script. Those who don’t agree with the direction The Cabal is taking us are “White Supremacists”.

      So this clown, like Michael Moore, are out there earning credits with TPTB for hyping their agenda. They want their cattle docile.

    Since when has the United Nations (UN) become interested in HUMAN RIGHTS. The whole Middle East/Europe are drowning in human rights for women and children and he is worried about the U.S. and its President and people in regards to human rights mistreating the media? The UN and the U .S. media are the major problem in the U.S. – they want this Globalist wealth distribution that Obama tried to give them – they are running out of money and they want America’s money.

    It is time they move to Belgium with the World Court and quit sponging off the American people and living high on the hog.

    The leaders at the UN are not elected – it is all about politics. When you see them on TV – it looks like they have taken their brain out and playing with it – cause you can see their marbles rolling around. By the way, we need to test them for their IQ.

    Time for them to haul freight.

  5. Well, well, well. It looks like the little errand boy sent by the grocers to collect the bill is running scared here.
    WELL, GOOD: I love it when a plan comes together! SOMEONE has to stand up to these bully boys, and Donald Trump is that man. Let’s face it: The media are the “high priests” of the Empire—someone has to keep the sheep in line. After all, they just might escape the plantation!
    Yeah, well, that turning point is coming. It can’t happen soon enough, as far as I’m concerned. And I can’t wait for Zeid Rat Al-Hambone to have his entire face rubbed in camel dung!

    Again, whenever I look at the U.N., I always identify it as one of the main planks in President Truman’s truly POISONED Legacy. Harry Truman, that little yelllow Masonic weasel rat bastard, left us a legacy rife with all the rotten meat needed for a WORM FARM. Al-Hussein is just one of those worms. (Their number is Legion!)

    • Truman gave us cia and nsa and I dare one to come up with US agencies that have undermined the US Constitution more effectively. Here’s the poem he kept in his pocket much of his adult life;
      “”FOR I DIPT INTO THE FUTURE, FAR AS HUMAN EYE COULD SEE,
      “SAW THE VISION OF THE WORLD, AND ALL THE WONDER THAT WOULD BE;
      “SAW THE HEAVENS FILL WITH COMMERCE. ARGOSIES OF MAGIC SAILS,
      “PILOTS OF THE PURPLE TWILIGHT, DROPPING DOWN WITH COSTLY BALES;
      “HEARD THE HEAVENS FILL WITH SHOUTING, AND THERE RAIN’D A GHASTLY DEW
      “FROM THE NATIONS’ AIRY NAVIES GRAPPLING IN THE CENTRAL BLUE;
      “FAR ALONG THE WORLD-WIDE WHISPER OF THE SOUTH-WIND RUSHING WARM,
      “WITH THE STANDARDS OF THE PEOPLES PLUNGING THRO’ THE THUNDER-STORM;
      “TILL THE WAR-DRUM THROBB’D NO LONGER, AND THE BATTLE-FLAGS WERE FURL’D
      “IN THE PARLIAMENT OF MAN, THE FEDERATION OF THE WORLD,
      “THERE THE COMMON SENSE OF MOST SHALL HOLD A FRETFUL REALM IN AWE,
      “AND THE KINDLY EARTH SHALL SLUMBER, LAPT IN UNIVERSAL LAW.””

      Amazing how it’s only globalists that find their way to power. Like as if there was some spiracy afoot.

      • Well, not to put too fine a point on it, there ARE only those who wish to be left alone to determine their own destiny and …..”globalists”. You can change the name to “those who wish to manipulate and control”.

        So, if one is busy minding one’s own business and trying to do what is right for their situation, there are always those watching, waiting for an opportunity to seize control.

    • Auntie Lulu, time and again I said kick those parasites and move their den out of our country, they get consular immunity no matter what they do, they are a bunch of drunkards, the DONT PAY for anything. Top diplomatic officers have full immunity, as do their deputies and families. That means ambassadors can commit just about any crime—from jaywalking to murder—and still be immune from prosecution.

  8. I don’t remember Mr. Trump shutting down any news outlets. He does however call them out when they lie or mangle the truth. I think that’s called Freedom of Speech.

  9. a muslim prince, a swedish princess wife, next in line to the throne of the kingdom of iraq, talk about “privileged”…not a word about all the damage these melting snowflakes called “antifa” are doing to our country or soros and his involvement in it, or even hurricane harvey…just trump, trump, trump.
    I wonder if this programmed progressive is helping to fund antifa as well?
    this muslim serving on the HRC is a joke (the UN might as well pick bill clinton to head up women’s reproductive “health”)….PC got him there and it’s the same PC that is destroying our country.

    • I think my vote goes to doing what we’re doing here. Get your news from the internet. The stuff on TEE VEE isn’t “news”. My wife is always amazed that I’ve heard what she sees on the tube days, or even weeks before its broadcast.
