UN: Venezuela wins a seat on the United Nations Human Rights Council,

(UN)  Following on from electing Iraq in 2003 to chair the UN Conference on Disarmament.  Libya to chair the UN human rights commission and this year Iran to judge women’s rights violations, The UN has elected Venezuela  to one of 14 new seats on the United Nations Human Rights Council.

Yes that Venezuela where 4.5 million Venezuelans have fled their nation’s economic and social collapse, where the fat president for life , Nicolás Maduro, has deployed the military to snuff out dissent. where opposition activists, journalists and human rights defenders are jailed, whilst security forces loyal to Maduro commit abuses with impunity in which to allow the government to hold on to power amid a collapsing economy. The very same Venezuela I should add which is currently being investigated by the UN Human Rights Council over alleged humanrights violations including executions, disappearances and torture.. The irony here is when Trump pulled the US out of the UN human rights council last year referring to the council as a "hypocritical and self-serving organisation". The left and liberal world had a melt down. well it seems that POTUS was right all along.

Couldn't make it up if you tried.
