That's right, this utterly bullshit country I had the severe misfortune to be born in, just voted against a UN resolution that would've banned the death penalty for cases of 'homosexuality, adultery, and blasphemy'.
Tolerance is dead in this country. This utterly bullshit culture is literally reverting back to what it was in the 50s, where only white, heterosexual, christian men were NOT discriminated against.
The resolution apparently passed anyway. But that's beside the point. The US literally just voted against a law that would've made it illegal to execute people for homosexuality, questioning local religion, and being sexually assaulted (which is why the resolution bans the death penalty for adultery apparently). Heather Nauert (who is a 'state department spokesperson') claims that they voted it against it, because they believed that it would result in the death penalty being outlawed for any crime. Uh, it already is you fucking idiot. That's right, the UN classifies the death penalty as a violation of human rights. Its far from the only human rights violation this country is responsible for.
And everyone seems to think I'm insane for wanting out. I don't want to be a part of this worthless country anymore. I want to live somewhere, and pay taxes to, a nation with a government that actually gives a rats ass about its own citizens.
And yes, I know there is an LGBQ thread already. But honestly, I think this is more about the US than anything else. This is just disgusting behavior.http://www.snopes.com/2017/10/03/united-nations-ban-death-penalty/
And here's a link for people who lack the mental faculties to perform a basic search. Even though I know some of those people on here will deny it as fake news anyway.
