United Nations report: Internet access is a human right - LA Times

Apparently the UN does not know what a right is, or maybe they do and have ulterior motives.

Internet access is a human right, according to a United Nations report released on Friday.

"Given that the Internet has become an indispensable tool for realizing a range of human rights, combating inequality, and accelerating development and human progress, ensuring universal access to the Internet should be a priority for all states," said the report from Frank La Rue, a special rapporteur to the United Nations, who wrote the document "on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression."

The United Nations? The U.N has no right to define "Rights"

The 2nd amendment and Declaration of Independence will be what define the rights, that's right down to the very last drop!!

Funny! The first time this Rockefeller funded bunch of yahoos says something good, is about the same time the U.S is considering withdrawing from the United Nations.

Out of the league of nations......For good!
