“For the first time on 19 September 2016 Heads of State and Government came together to discuss, at the global level within the UN General Assembly, issues related to migration and refugees. This sent an important political message that migration and refugee matters have become major issues in the international agenda. In adopting the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants, the 193 UN Member States recognized the need for a comprehensive approach to human mobility and enhanced cooperation at the global level and committed to: protect the safety, dignity and human rights and fundamental freedoms of all migrants, regardless of their migratory status, and at all times; support countries rescuing, receiving and hosting large numbers of refugees and migrants; integrate migrants – addressing their needs and capacities as well as those of receiving communities – in humanitarian and development assistance frameworks and planning; combating xenophobia, racism and discrimination towards all migrants; develop, through a state-led process, non-binding principles and voluntary guidelines on the treatment of migrants in vulnerable situations and strengthen global governance of migration, including by bringing IOM into the UN family and through the development of a Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration ”
The above comes direct from the International Organization For Migration website and the devil is , as usual , in the detail. Who is to decide what exactly constitutes xenophobia , racism and discrimination ? Do I/you get to decide ? And if we dissent in any way will we be accused of xenophobia , racism and discrimination or even worse ? Jordan Peterson was accused of promoting genocide simply for raising concerns about Bill C16 and lesser mortals like you or I are called racist and bigoted at the drop of the proverbial hat on a daily basis in the mainstream media. Indeed there is a good case to be made that words such as ‘racism’ and ‘xenophobic ‘ are themselves a form hate speech that is used to delegitimize not only certain opinions but certain people too.
Within the Global Compact document there are constant references to human rights but the UN Human Rights commission itself includes some of the greatest offenders of human rights such as Iran and Pakistan and so can no longer be regarded as a suitable arbitrator of what is and is not a human right. And meanwhile , back in the real world , we all know what will happen to anyone who does not get with the programme and who insists on being ‘decisive’ or unhelpful in any way……..So , keep your mouth shut , avert your eyes , carry on as normal………and vote For Britain.
