UN Human Rights Office Says 'Shitholes' Comment Could "Disrupt The Lives Of Many"

The backlash to a Washington Post report about a bizarre and incredibly controversial remark that President Donald Trump reportedly made during a meeting with a bipartisan group of Senators is exploding.

According to the report, which will undoubtedly dominate the news cycle for the rest of the week, if not longer, Trump exclaimed during a meeting with a group of Republican and Democratic senators “why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” after growing frustrated when they floated the idea of restoring protections for immigrants from Haiti  and El Salvador that Trump is trying to kick out of the country.

Already, Trump has canceled a state visit to London - ostensibly because he didn’t want to "cut the ribbon” at the new US embassy in the Southwestern portion of the city. And now, the United Nations Human Rights Office is saying Trump’s incredibly callous description of countries in Africa, the Caribbean and South America could “potentially damage and disrupt the lives of many people."

Amazingly, the White House didn’t even try to push back against the report, issuing an uncharacteristically flimsy non-denial denial. If anything, the statement served to reinforce the negative connotations of Trump’s off-the-cuff comment.

 

 

UN spokesman Rupert Colville said that "you cannot dismiss entire countries and continents as 'shitholes'," according to the Associated Press.

Colville said Friday that the comments, if confirmed, were "shocking and shameful” and “I’m sorry, but there’s no other word one can use but racist."

He also said that Trump’s comment will endanger lives because "it legitimizes the targeting of people based on who they are."

"This isn’t just a story about vulgar language, it’s about opening the door to humanity’s worst side," he said.

Colville concluded that Trump’s reported comments "go against the universal values the world has been striving so hard to establish since World War II and the Holocaust."

Oddly enough, given the White House’s shockingly tone-deaf response, the US Africa Media Hub has taken the lead in trying to put out the flames sparked by the report.

Without directly referring to Trump’s alleged statement, they sent a tweet saying that "US remains committed to working together w/Africans to realize the promise of a more peaceful, more productive, more prosperous 21st century Africa. US deeply respects the people of #Africa & values its partnerships with them."

 

 

South Africa’s ruling party is calling President Donald Trump’s comment on African immigrants "extremely offensive."

Furthermore, the comment was apparently made during a meeting where the bipartisan group of Senators apparently presented Trump with what they claimed was an “agreement in principle” on the terms of a sweeping immigration deal that would enshrine DACA protections in exchange for border-security funding.

It should go without saying that this latest controversy should hold back the negotiations on DACA as Trump inevitably seeks to double down on his most controversial comments, like his response to the murder at a counterprotest to a White Nationalist rally in Charlottesville.

 Fuck that hypocrisy.

Now tell me: if these countries weren't 5 stars bona fide shitholes, then why would their inhabitants risk their lives getting out of them? 

Also, why is Europe becoming another shithole under the influx of these rapefugees? Isn't it because said third world parasites bring a part of their countries with them?

"..could “potentially damage and disrupt the lives of many people."

Ha ha ha ha ha.  They must think these people don't realize that they are living in a shithole.  Of course they know of their own circumstances.

The left had better learn soon that humanity will NEVER progress nor have any hope of survival if low intelligent peoples are given preference over those that have shown they can solve huge problems and advance humanity.  The only hope of the human race will come from whites, Asians and Jews.  The rest of the world is dependent upon those three races for long term survival.

Look at the countries that all of the snowflakes who claimed they'd move out of the US if Trump won wanted to move to.  None of them were these shitholes.  How many people do you hear saying "ya know, Haiti is a nice place.  I think I'll retire there!?"  That's right.  There are a lot of shithole countries, and those countries are shitholes for a goddamned reason. 

 

Edit:  Watched that a while back.  Shithole is an apt descriptor.

Africa needs a massive die off. The conditions are there, but "humanitarians" keep preventing Nature from taking its course.

Mass Sterilization. If the "humanitarians" can't handle watching them die, then prevent them reproducing.

Civilization was not advanced by Humanitarians.

The Glorious World of Next Tuesday is not coming, ever.

Thank you for your clarity and simplicity is stating the whole truth and nothing but the truth. You might add that nothing changes in such places and ask: "Why?" But then you can tell from any photo, if the streets are littered with garbage and trash (ala Detroit/Baltimore, etc) then the people are "trash" also. Its not "racist" to state the obvious; not matter what the propagandists accuse you of in their complete emotionalization in the use of language. Which of course is only a half or less step removed from complete ignorance.

There are three essential responses: one who think think Trump did not say it, who is the source of that claim he did?  two those who think he did say it and agree with it, and finally those who think he didn't say it but agree with it.  

There is that final segment: who think he did and don't agree with it..  

https://www.snopes.com/2018/01/11/trump-allow-immigrants-shithole-count…

But who the fuck are these sources?  

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/01/11/fusion-gps-transcrip…

“According to Source D, where s/he had been present, TRUMP’s (perverted) conduct in Moscow included hiring the presidential suite of the Ritz Carlton Hotel, where he knew President and Mrs OBAMA (whom he hated) had stayed on one of their official trips to Russia, and defiling the bed where they had slept by employing a number of prostitutes to perform a ‘golden showers’ (urination) show in front of him. The hotel was known to be under FSB control with microphones and concealed cameras in all the main rooms to record anything they wanted to.”

Until I see somebody stand in front of fucking microphone or produce evidence this shit is just slander from often a PAID SOURCE!  

I genuinely believe I could pay somebody in prison a twinky to say your a cocksucker and swear to that on a bible, doesn't mean it's true!  

Who the fuck is the source?

The demons they won't stop making Hillary cough, the ridiculous cunt!

I did not know shitholes were racist?!  When did that happen?  Now I have to add shitholes to my list of protected classes along with everything that is non-white.  

 

Also, doesn't everybody have a shithole?  So, does that mean everybody is racist?  It was much easier to know when someone was racist when the word meant prejudiced against another race.

I have watched that, on your recommendation. Fucking bizarre. Even more bizarre is these are the people many in our country want to make your new neighbor. Also, in every single instant in the documentary, you are provided with more evidence that Africa is, indeed, a shithole.

 

Why is Africa a shithole? Its mineral and resource rich and has areas of highly fertile soil and long growing seasons. It should be thriving. But its not, because its full of Africans.
