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. . . .
