I say you’re a two-bit, power-mad dictatorial twat

It’s sadly impressive how much politicians want to pin our rights on anything other than God-given inalienableness. I grant you, this is the UN, not exactly an organization filled with freedom-loving libertarians.  I understand it is in their best interests to be able to control the rights, but still, leave us alone.

Free speech is a “gift given to us by the [Universal] Declaration of Human Rights,” said Deputy Secretary General of the United Nations Jan Eliasson during a press conference on October 2nd at UN headquarters in New York.  It is “a privilege,” Eliasson said, “that we have, which in my view involves also the need for respect, the need to avoid provocations.”

No, it’s not a privilege. It’s not a gift. It’s a right. Inalienable. Just for being born we all get to say what we want. We also get to suffer the consequences of our words. See how that works? Great. Thanks for your attention in this matter.

  1. When the UN starts dictating US law based on “privileges” they are bequeathing in their benevolence, we might need to bring back some well regulated militias.
