Poll: British believe Human Rights are bad for you ...


British believe Human Rights are bad for you  Daily Mail reports on the fact, a recent British YouGov Poll found that British people believed Human Rights were a leverage tool for criminals and the "undeserving" of them

Public Policy Institute, Turtle Bay and Beyond, thinks that this is a result, of the politicization of Human Rights.

One good example is the war in Libya where American and French troops pushed for alleged Human Rights, while the Rebel regime were more interested in killing Black people than Freedom, a fact well documented on the ground, and even reported by America's New York Times | 'Libyans Turn Wrath on Dark-Skinned Migrants' by DAVID D. KIRKPATRICK at September 4, 2011 New York Time http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/05/world/africa/05migrants.html?_r=1&pagewanted=all

Here is the Turtle Bay commentary

Turtle Bay and Beyond | 'POLL: HUMAN RIGHTS LAWS A LICENSE FOR CRIMINALS' by Wendy Wright at April 17, 2012 USA Time 


'The Daily Mail reports on a new poll finding an astonishing 72% of Britons agree with the statement “human rights have become a charter for criminals and the undeserving.”
It takes a heap of bad publicity to get this kind of strong public rejection. In this case, it is well-deserved.
Britons have seen their country become a haven for alleged terrorists who fight extradition by appealing to the European Court of Human Rights.
In addition to siding with terrorists over innocents, the European Court of Human Rights has trivialized its mission by seriously entertaining a lawsuit by an irate passenger over a bus seat that did not fully recline. (I wrote on this in The Trivialization of Human Rights.)
But this widespread public reaction signifies an understanding that goes beyond a few cases or one court. It shows that elitists who have taken over the human rights regime – from Amnesty International to international bureaucrats – have overplayed their hand.Originally a noble cause, human rights is too often used now as a cloak to challenge norms, undercut the rule of law and impose the opinions of self-styled superiors upon the less entitled.'
