Hitler and Himmler: Free Speech Advocates

Himmler and Hitler: Free Speech Advocates

COMMENT: For the second time in three years, the U.S. has voted against a U.N. resolution condemning the glorification of Nazism and neo-Nazism because it constitutes a restriction of “free speech!”

This is to be seen against our long-running and exhaustive series on the Ukraine crisis.

“US Says Anti-Nazi Resolution at U.N. Restricts Free Speech” by Michael Astor; The Seattle Times; 11/17/2016.

The United States was one of three countries to vote against a U.N. resolution condemning the glorification of Nazism on Thursday, citing freedom of speech issues and concerns Russia was using it to carry out political attacks against its neighbors.

The resolution entitled “Combating glorification of Nazism, Neo-Nazism and other practices that contribute to fueling contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance,” was approved by the U.N.’s human rights committee on Friday with 131 in favor, 3 against with 48 abstentions. Ukraine and Palau were the other no votes. . . .
