(Natural News) The United Nations has appointed China, arguably the world’s most oppressive authoritarian regime, to help lead a “Human Rights” panel that exists to, get this, identify threats to freedom of speech.
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) will now be tasked with uncovering which countries are carrying out “enforced disappearances” and “arbitrary detention” of citizens, which is exactly what is happening in communist China!
According to the U.N., China will “have a say in selecting at least 17 U.N. human rights ‘mandate-holders’ over the next year.” China “will also assist in screening candidates for U.N. human rights positions,” the globalist body indicated.
News of the appointment caught the attention of many human rights activists who are now scratching their heads trying to figure out if this is some kind of joke. U.N. Watch, for instance, called out the U.N. for basically making a mockery of itself with this strange decision.
“It’s absurd and immoral for the U.N. to allow China’s oppressive government a key role in selecting officials who shape international human rights standards and report on violations worldwide,” stated the executive director of U.N. Watch, which was the first to report on China’s appointment to the panel.
“Allowing China’s oppressive and inhumane regime to choose the world investigators on freedom of speech, arbitrary detention and enforced disappearances is like making a pyromaniac into the town fire chief.”
Communist China also lied about COVID – why would we trust the regime concerning human rights?
The timing of the appointment is further strange in that communist China is the subject of international inquiry due to its mishandling of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.
Perhaps most prominently, the United States is actively looking into why China allowed the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) to spread so quickly and rampantly within its borders without taking steps to curb it. There are also serious questions about China’s official death count numbers, which appear to be drastically too low.
“It now seems, according to reports cataloging the return of thousands of cremated remains to families in and around Wuhan, China, the coronavirus epicenter, that more than 40,000 likely died from the virus in the Wuhan area alone,” writes Emily Zanotti for The Daily Wire.
Early on in the plandemic, China further restricted its own scientists and doctors from speaking out about the crisis. Dr. Li Wenliang, as you may recall, was one of the first to notify the world via social media about a “mysterious illness” that was spreading in his country, only to be paid a visit by Chinese officials who told him that it constituted “illegal behavior” to spread such information.

Fact: China HATES free speech and freedom of religion
The other elephant in the room is China’s extensive record of oppression against free speech and freedom of religion. Christians and Uyghur Muslims, for instance, are not allowed to practice their faith openly in China because the regime does not tolerate any belief system except for atheism.
China’s hatred for free speech runs so deep, in fact, that the communist regime actually went so far as to hire Google to create a censored version of its search engine for the Chinese market, something that the search engine giant later denied.
“As for ‘arbitrary detention,’ in the weeks and months before China suffered the first coronavirus outbreak, the Chinese government was being investigated for a series of ‘concentration camps,’ where millions of ethnically-Chinese Muslims, known as Uigurs, were reportedly being kept in cramped, unsafe conditions and forced to work as slaves in Chinese factories,” further notes Zanotti.
