Just Wondering

Just wondering about an article in Counter Currents titled “U.S. And Ukraine, Only Two Countries Vote Against U.N. Resolution Condemning Nazism.” The United Nations General Assembly has adopted a resolution condemning Nazism, neo-Nazism and all forms of racism — and the U.S. and Ukraine voted against it, while a few countries, mainly U.S. allies, abstained. The resolution was co-sponsored by Russia.

On December 16, the U.N. General Assembly passed its annual resolution on “Combating Glorification of Nazism, neo-Nazism and other practices that contribute to fueling contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance,” with 130 countries voting in favor, and only two in opposition.

Out of a total 193 members countries, 51 countries, including all members of the European Union, Australia, New Zealand and Canada, were among those that abstained from voting on the U.N. resolution asking members to eliminate all forms of racism and attempts to glorify Nazism. The resolution passed with overwhelming support from Third World countries.

Really people? Really?
