“Donald Trump’s election as US president after a campaign fomenting hatred and intolerance, and the rising influence of political parties in Europe that reject universal rights, have put the postwar human rights system at risk,” wrote Human Rights Watch Executive Director Kenneth Roth.
“Trump and various politicians in Europe seek power through appeals to racism, xenophobia, misogyny, and nativism. They all claim that the public accepts violations of human rights as supposedly necessary to secure jobs, avoid cultural change, or prevent terrorist attacks.
He added: “In fact, disregard for human rights offers the likeliest route to tyranny.”
That's right folks, our last President won the Nobel Peace Prize and this one is identified as a threat to human rights.
I'm not sure if I should laugh or cry.
In other news it now appears that there are 35 Democratic lawmakers skipping Trump's inauguration.
Those are the REAL American heroes.
