Russian President Vladimir Putin has redefined the cause of international human rights to include the concept of «collective human rights». Putin rightly argues that in addition to individual human rights, which are being used by various special interests to advance such «boutique causes» as rights got lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transsexuals, pedophiles [as seen recently by the German Green Party’s defense of members of Green Party-run pedophile communes], groups of people have the right to protect their social, religious, linguistic, and cultural identities against forces that seek to undermine such distinctions.
In recent years, the interventionists of the U.S. State Department, backed by George Soros and his ilk, have sought to destroy the character of various aspirant nations and ethnically- and linguistically-based regions that have striven for cultural and social independence. Putin has recognized such besieged peoples and that him to recognize the independence of the Republics of South Ossetia and Abkhazia from the CIA- and Soros-infested Republic of Georgia; the autonomy of and referendum in Crimea that saw it reunite with Russia; and the right of Nagorno-Karabakh, Transnistria, and Novorossiya to determine their own futures without oppression and violence directed from Azerbaijan, Moldova/Romania; and Ukraine, respectively.
Putin has international law on his side in his argument that collective human rights do, in fact, exist. Such rights were outlined in the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the 1989 Convention of the International Labor Organization, and the 2007 Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
In June of this year, the United Nations Human Rights Council voted in favor of a resolution that recognized group human rights. The global homosexual lobby, as represented by the U.S. State Department, Soros-funded NGOs, and such media outlets as The Daily Beast, cried foul. They claim there are no collective human rights, only individual human rights with an overarching focus on gay rights. The U.S. position that there are no «traditional values» associated with human rights was rejected in a council vote of 26 for, 14 against, with 6 abstentions.
Voting with Russia and against the United States was South Africa, India, Indonesia, Philippines, and Vietnam, nations with religious majorities and minorities that are constitutionally protected from domestic or foreign dictates that they submit to the whims of the globalized special interests of Soros and his lackeys within the State Department. Other nations that voted with Russia included Algeria, Benin, Botswana, Burkina Faso, China, Congo, Cote d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Gabon, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Kuwait, Maldives, Morocco, Namibia, Pakistan, Sierra Leone, and Venezuela. The Soros NGOs and The Daily Beast cried foul and suggested that these nations did not reflect the will of the international community.
Russia stood accused by the Soros types and their State Department facilitators of opposing «diversity». Yet, Russia’s support for the rights of indigenous rights of groups to their own language, religion, and cultural and social values is at the very essence of recognizing diversity, whether it is in Abkhazia, Donetsk, the Serbian districts of the contrivance called the «Republic of Kosovo,» or the Alawite and Kurdish towns of Syria.
All the minions of Soros and the global gay lobby could do was condemn the 26 countries that voted for the collective human rights resolution as nations having «appalling» human rights records. The gay rights lobby would gloss over the dismal records of individual human rights witnessed in such «gay rights» havens as the United States, Canada, Britain, Germany, Australia, and New Zealand with their panoptic electronic surveillance societies, general acceptance of police brutality, harsh suppression of racial minorities (an issue that is ignored by many gays so long as it is racist and not homophobic-related oppression), and curtailment of free speech.
The Russia-promoted UN human rights resolution also protects children and women from sex slave trafficking. It is no surprise that The Daily Beast would condemn a resolution targeting a revolting global sexual slave trade that is largely centered in Israel. After all, The Daily Beast appears to take all of its editorial directions from the power centers of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, along with their subservient political and financial cells in New York, London, Miami Beach, Los Angeles, and Washington, DC.
The gay lobby and its supporters are flat out wrong when they reject Putin’s doctrine of collective human rights. Enshrined in international human rights law is the «communal right of privacy,» in addition to general collective human rights, especially as they relate to the rights of indigenous people to be free of wanton exploitation and abuse by neo-colonial or economic interests. In many oppressed regions, dubiously-collected national census information has been used to forcibly assimilate and transfer indigenous populations from their historic lands.
Western corporations and interests, including those of Soros, have eagerly backed Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi because they realize that with her in charge of Myanmar (Burma), western exploiters will be free to displace the ethnic Shan, Kachin, Karen, and other peoples from their resource-rich lands in northern and eastern Myanmar. The Democratic Republic of Congo serves as a case in point where Western corporations have disregarded collective human rights in order to pillage native lands of their precious natural resources. The rise of the «blood diamond» industry in central and western Africa is directly linked to the blatant disregard by the West for «collective» or «group» human rights.
In the early 1990s, before the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO), an alternative «United Nations» for indigenous peoples lacking representation at the UN, was taken over by Soros-controlled NGO bureaucrats and «Eurocrats,» the organization based in The Hague conducted a survey of 32 of its then-47 members. The survey discovered that many of the UNPO peoples sat atop highly-coveted natural resources. After UNPO organization was subsumed by the global network of Soros NGOs, which saw to it that Karl von Habsburg of the Austro-Hungarian royal pretenders was appointed UNPO’s director-general, the organization no longer points out the dangers posed to indigenous peoples by unscrupulous corporations and hedge funds like those controlled by Mr. Soros and his Rothschild and Rockefeller colleagues. It was also no coincidence that Von Habsburg served in a senior executive position for the NGO World Vision, an organization with historical ties to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). The Hapsburg family are influential promoters of a federalized Europe that stands opposed to the concept of collective human rights as most recently seen in the European Union’s sharp opposition to Scottish and Catalonian independence. The cause of collective human rights received a sharp body blow by the takeover of UNPO by the Soros and Habsburg interests and the collapse of the Scottish and Catalonian independence movements.
The very same promoters of individual human rights, which is nothing more than State Department and Soros code for «gay rights,» would deny collective rights to Kurds, native Americans, and Asian tribal peoples because their cultures and creeds may oppose the promotion of homosexual life styles. Therefore, in the eyes of the gay movement, it is better for such groups to remain suppressed if they refuse to accept the «foreign» life styles imposed from abroad. Putin, by advancing the concept of collective human rights, has seen through the Soros and gay liberation smoke screen as he has called out their main promoters for their abject hypocrisy.
