Another “valuable contribution” from the U.N.
Yes, those weasels at the United Nations who manage to sponge up so much of the taxpayers’ money while accomplishing nothing good — they don’t even unite any nations well actually, they do perform a service for the world: They appoint anti-Westerners to head most of their committees, usually third world dictators, oppose us at every turn where our taking defensive or preemptive action is concerned and they have definitely mastered the art of corruption.
And, of course, they’re pretty good at trying to suck us into such things as global gun control for civilians, allowing them to meddle in our internal affairs, imposing a world wide climate change tax and want us to help finance them and now, now they are even trying to place murderous dictators to top jobs at the U.N.
World Health Organization chief Dr. Tedros Ad-hanom Ghebreyesus has rescinded the goodwill ambassadorship he bestowed on Zimbabwe’s bloody and corrupt president, Robert Mugabe. But that he offered it at all is a sign of just how perverse the United Nations bureaucracy has grown.
The WHO director-general announced the appointment at a conference last Wednesday, claiming Zimbabwe’s president could influence his peers for better health care and praising the country’s supposed commitment to “universal health coverage.”
Mugabe, sadly, does have influence: He was head of the African Union when it united to push Tedros, an Ethiopian technocrat, to take over at WHO. But he’s a cancer.
Two generations ago, Mugabe inspired many around the world — an anti-imperialist who fought successfully to end white minority rule in then-Rhodesia.
But in the decades since, he’s gradually crushed all dissenting voices, massacred tens of thousands (overwhelmingly blacks) and ruined the nation’s economy, leaving it even more impoverished than when he first took power in 1980.
Mugabe has “turned the breadbasket of Africa — and its health system — into a basket-case,” notes UN Watch’s Hillel Neuer. “The notion that the UN should now spin this country as a great supporter of health is, frankly, sickening.”
