Biden Wants UN Soldiers to Push Trans Ideology
NEW YORK, March 24 (C-Fam) The Biden administration sponsored a Security Council briefing to promote the homosexual/trans agenda in UN security policy. Western countries supported the administration, but China, Russia, and Ghana openly criticized the initiative as dangerous.
“The threats that LGBTQI+ people face around the world are threats to international peace and security,” said U.S. Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield in her prepared remarks at a special Security Council briefing about “Integrating the Human Rights of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Intersex (LGBTI) Persons” in UN security policy on Monday. “That’s especially true for those at the intersection of multiple, underrepresented identities.”
Thomas-Greenfield announced that the Biden administration will propose homosexual/trans specific language in Security Council resolutions and decisions. The Biden administration intends to streamline “LGBTQI+ concerns and perspectives” across all UN reports. She also praised Colombia for initiating the prosecution of “gender persecution” as a “crime against humanity.”
Western countries who attended the briefing took turns in calling on the UN system to advance homosexual/trans policies as part of the UN Security Council’s agenda to protect women in war-torn areas. The reaction of the few non-Western countries in the room was largely negative.
The representative from Ghana was especially concerned about the practical implications of integrating controversial social issues in the work of UN peacekeepers, citing their longstanding deployments to UN missions.
“We are particularly concerned with the reputation of UN peacekeeping missions and by the anti-mission sentiment arising in recent times,” she said emphasizing that the Security Council’s approach to human rights was “critical and must be done with outmost prudence.”
She said UN peacekeeping missions must be very attuned to “sentiments of populations in the field”, including their culture and religion and insisted that UN missions should only report human rights violations based on “universally agreed” norms and the consent of the state parties involved in the conflict. She also said the work of the Security Council to protect women and children must be safeguarded from encroachment by issues that were not agreed by the Security Council.
“This meeting is not for the benefit of security but to advance domestic political interests,” said the Chinese representative at the Security Council.
He called the U.S. approach a “misjudgment” of the real security threats facing the world and said it would “not lead to the right path to peace and security.” He also said the human rights abuses should be dealt with in the context of the UN Human Rights Council and not the UN Security Council.
The Russian representative disputed the legal basis for addressing sexual orientation and gender identity issues in the context of human rights at all.
“Not one of the fundamental human rights agreements designates these people as a single group requiring protection,” he explained. He said, “sexual orientation is an individual choice” and the people who identify as homosexual or trans “have the same rights and obligations” as everyone else.
Only the second such briefing on homosexual/trans issues ever to take place in the Security Council, it was also the first to be open to the public. What’s more, was sparsely attended by UN Member States. Most countries who are not members of the Council or not part of the LGBT+ Core Group ignored the meeting.
The UN independent expert on violence and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity, Victor Madrigal-Borloz, as well as LGBT activists from Turkey and Colombia, briefed council members. They called on countries to fund homosexual/trans activists, including the radical group Outright International, which is funded by Western governments who helped facilitate the event.
