Useless Nitwits No Friend of Free Speech

Heeding Pakistani Protest, U.N. Blocks Talk by Rape Victim - New York Times. Since the speech in question would have "upset" a government, the Useless Nitwits United Nations decided it was better to supress the speech.

The UN is not the friend of the small guy. They UN is the friend of governments - no matter how oppressive they are.

The speech in question? The Pakistani woman gang-raped by order of tribal counsel was to speak to the General Assmebly. But this would have been "embarrassing" to the Pakistani government, so her talk was canceled. [hat tip Free Thoughts]
