…and out into the ocean, to the Gulf Stream, and over to Europe, where it belongs. The Useless Nations, in an attempt to promote tourism through the United Nations World Tourism Organization, is appointing ambassadors. Some of the folks they’ve recruited thus far:
- Drew Barrymore
- David Beckham
- Orlando Bloom
- Ricky Martin
- Robert Mugabe
Wait, what? You mean Robert Mugabe, the ruthless dictator that has ruled Zimbabwe into abject poverty, while he and his family live like royalty? Yes, that Robert Mugabe.
He has killed scores of his own citizens and political opponents. He has devastated a nation, reducing it to unspeakable poverty while he and his family live in unrivaled luxury. He has denied everyone in his country every basic right and liberty. He has turned Zimbabwe into a pariah nation. And now Robert Mugabe is the newest ambassador for tourism for the United Nations. He will now work with the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) which appears interested in enlisting the help of dictators on vacation.
The United Nations is infamous for its absurd contradictions like Libya using the Human Rights Council to denounce homosexuals or Iran put on the United Nation’s Women Rights Commission. However, the selection of Mugabe is an affront to humanity since he should have been arrested and tried for human rights violations years ago.
We have long discussed the disgusting Mugabe and his wife. Their level of corruption and cruelty in the country is unspeakable.
Mugabe will join Drew Barrymore, David Beckham, Orlando Bloom, and Ricky Martin as the ambassadors for the United Nations. I cannot understand why those celebrities have not refused the ambassadorships rather than be associated with one of humanity’s greater war criminals.
Ironically, Mugabe, 88, is under a travel ban. However, if he cannot visit other countries, he still wants people to come and visit Zimbabwe with its killing fields and abject poverty.
The U.N. is busy trying to justify the selection of Mugabe to folks who are rightly outraged at the selection. They will try, but they cannot. We should send the whole thing packing.
