Gutfeld Slams UN Countries for Criticizing U.S. on Human Rights
On "The Five" today, Greg Gutfeld reacted to the United States being scolded over its human rights record at the United Nations’ Human Rights Council.
Member nations criticized the U.S. for police violence and racial discrimination, the Guantanamo Bay Detention Facility and the continued use of the death penalty.
"So who ragged on us?" Gutfeld asked. "Brazil, Malaysia, Mexico, others."
"First, Brazil, where their prisons make Attica look like Legoland," Gutfeld remarked. "Overcrowded and violent, the adult prison population runs 43 percent over capacity, 20,000 of which are kids. Poor sanitation, disease, those who don't die are tortured."
"I'd say, 'Go to hell, Brazilian at the UN,' but it sounds like you left it behind."
"Malaysia? They criminalize homosexuality, enforce Sharia law, you can get caned for drinking booze and executed for drugs. It's also a destination for women and children sold into sexual exploitation," Gutfeld said.
"Finally, Mexico. Confessions via torture, mass disappearances, corrupt prisons, deadly cartels," Gutfeld said. "Maybe if your country was better to your citizens, so many wouldn't be fleeing to our scary country."
Gutfeld said that the UN focused on U.S. justice system and anti-terror measures, seeing our security as abuse, while protecting their own abuses.
"Perhaps they also see an opportunity to recast our policy as tyranny because they sense a sympathetic ear in the administration," Gutfeld said.
"So if the UN sees our protections as abuse, why offer them protection at all?" Gutfeld asked. "Why should the UN even have our security? You want us to be vulnerable? Then you first. But then again, taking advice on abuse from the UN makes some sense. They are the experts."
