Snubbing UN and Fight Against Racism, Trump Admin Blocks Seat on Key Committee From Being Filled

Snubbing UN and Fight Against Racism, Trump Admin Blocks Seat on Key Committee From Being Filled

Andrea Germanos, staff writer

President Donald Trump was accused of depriving "the U.S. of a much needed voice at the U.N. on the struggle against racism" after his administration moved to block the reappointment of a human rights lawyer to sit on a key committee, leaving the position vacant.

Politico reported

We’re talking about a White Supremacist/White Nationalist here.

This is what they do if given the power to do it.

This is the extraction model of diplomacy. Extract representation in order to extract participation, in order to extract the broadest spectrum of capture. This is not governance to promote democracy it is the double-down on decades of Clintonesque extraction by slime-slip. It is the strategy of full spectrum dominance / superiority by being incompetent at anything other than bludgeoning - everything is studied in terms of weaponization. we’re simply seeing more aspects of it. Unfortunately, I would submit, not enough people realize what it is we are witnessing. If we do,we tend to interpret it inappropriately according to day to day criteria - myself included.

Now, imagine the capture of entire spheres of engagement and walk back through Citizens United… its probably called something like an authoritarian kleptocratic oligarchy … fascism for short or sure.

This is one of the rare times that a republican does NOT play the hypocrite card. No, Trump is an unabashed racist and doesn’t care who knows it.
But of course if cornered he will deny it all, coming full circle back to hypocrisy. Ain’t they great fun?
