(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) As radical leftists seek to transform America into a Marxist government, they have been unable to do so democratically through failed federal voting overhauls like the controversial HR1 bill in 2021, which Democrats hoped to use to codify controversial changes brought about during the pandemic.
Now, they are seeking outside help from globalist entities as part of an effort to wage an end-run around the U.S. Constitution and its governing bodies.
The Southern Poverty Law Center approved and sent a delegation to Switzerland to seek intercession from the United Nations Human Rights Committee on a Supreme Court case.
The delegation spoke before the UNHRC in a review of the United States’s acquiescence to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
“While our nation has championed some of the most significant international human rights treaties and agreements, it has thwarted the application of such agreements on its own soil in many ways, including by failing to give its treaty obligations the force of domestic law,” wrote SPLC President and CEO Margaret Huang.
The ICCPR is a 1966 treaty put in place by the United Nations General Assembly. According to 1819 News, the treaty currently has 173 parties—including the United States—all of which are subject to compliance reviews.
The SPLC requested UN intervention in the Supreme Court’s 2013 Shelby County v. Holder ruling, which deemed parts of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 to be unconstitutional for the national government to mandate federal pre-clearance before changing state-level voting laws.
Letetia Jackson, a plaintiff in a recent Alabama redistricting case, claimed that Shelby v. Holder was responsible for the current “draconian anti-abortion laws.”
The SPLC delegation—comprising Huang, victims of racial hate crimes, former prisoners and an activist plaintiff from a recent Alabama redistricting case—claimed to present “overwhelming evidence of the United States’s failure to safeguard the human rights of its most vulnerable residents.”
In response to this alleged lack of care, the SPLC requested a “national human rights institution” be placed in the United States to ensure a watchful eye over the U.S. government.
The delegation also recommended ending torture and solitary confinement in prisons, boosting government funding for “inclusive education,” and keeping social-media platforms from “spreading extremism.”
That effort comes in spite of another pending Supreme Court case, Missouri v. Biden, in which the high court is likely to rule that the Biden administration violated the Constitution by leaning on social-media companies to censor users during the pandemic and other events.
International delegates from Poland proposed similar policies just a few weeks ago, claiming that the government should “prevent radicalization” by “inoculating youth” in government-funded schools and programming.
Federal U.S. officials took the opportunity to defend themselves on Tuesday and instead apologized for the overturn of Roe v. Wade and promised to pressure Congress into passing a law restricting states from passing pro-life laws.
