UN Human Rights Council to Plunge into NFL ‘Redskins’ Controversy
by Rick Moran
The United Nations organization charged with the mandate “to promote and protect all human rights” is sticking its nose into the controversy over the name of the Washington, D.C. NFL franchise.

The body count in Syria is over 100,000, Iran executes homosexuals, Russia makes it a virtual crime to be openly gay — and the UN Human Rights Council wants to make an issue of the name of a pro sport franchise?

I’d say the UN has progressed from the sublime to the ridiculous, but that would entail a starting point of sublimity.
