The Epoch Times broke this story today.
The United Nations has defended far-left extremist group Antifa and other similar organizations, telling the United States that its experts were profoundly concerned over U.S. Attorney General William Barr’s characterization of Antifa members as “domestic terrorists.”
The United Nations Office in Geneva on Friday shared an image of Antifa’s flag on its official Twitter account, saying that its experts “express profound concern over a recent statement by the U.S. Attorney-General describing #Antifa and other anti-fascist activists as domestic terrorists.”
The office further went on to say such a description “undermines the rights” of Antifa and other anti-fascists groups’ members “to freedom of expression and of peaceful assembly” in the United States.
The reason President Trump and Barr are going to list Antifa as a Domestic Terrorist group is because they are not “peaceful”.
Federal authorities, including Barr, have attributed the violent activity to extremist organizations such as Antifa. The attorney general previously said in a statement on May 31 that the alleged violence “carried out by Antifa and other similar groups in connection with the rioting is domestic terrorism and will be treated accordingly.”
Previously, he said that the DOJ has evidence that Antifa and other similar groups instigated the violent activity, and he said that federal authorities are conducting comprehensive investigations into certain individuals with ties to the extremist group.
“We have some investigations underway and very focused investigations on certain individuals that relate to Antifa,” Barr said during an interview with Fox News on June 8. “But in the … initial phase of identifying people and arresting them, they were arrested for crimes that don’t require us to identify a particular group or don’t necessitate that.”
It’s not a surprise that the U.N. would condemn the U.S. for labeling them as such because it could hinder their agenda. It has been widely speculated that Antifa are the foot soldiers of the Democratic party and globalists. When they need chaos in America, it is this group that is called upon to do the deed.
One of the UN experts who expressed concern was Fionnuala Ní Aoláin, the UN Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms while countering terrorism. Ní Aoláin expressed regret over the U.S. response to the protests in a separate statement.
“International human rights law protects the right to freedom of expression, association, and peaceful assembly,” Ní Aoláin said. “It is regrettable that the United States has chosen to respond to the protests in a manner that undermines these fundamental rights.”
She added that “the loose use of terrorism rhetoric undermines legitimate protests and dampens freedom of expression in the United States, which has been a hallmark of U.S. constitutional values, and a beacon far beyond its shores.”
How has the United States response “undermined these fundamental rights”?
What about the police officers that were killed during the riots? What about the businesses that were burned to the ground? What about the graffiti, and theft? These acts are terrorists acts, they are not protected by any law. In fact, they break laws.
This is just another way that the U.N. is trying to demonize America.
Seem others are questioning the UN and their connection to some Democratic cities as well.
Why is the US still funding the United Nations? The UN just endorsed anti-government insurrectionists.— Ian Miles Cheong (@stillgray) June 20, 2020
