The United Nations wants parents who physically discipline their children with smacks or spankings to be thrown behind bars and have their families torn to shreds by government.
Of course, the “Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General on Violence against Children,” Marta Santos Pais, did not put it quite that explicitly. But that is an accurate description of the UN bureaucrat’s demands, as issued in a series of official statements posted on the UN’s website this month. It is also part of the global agenda to destroy parental rights, as envisioned in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) that Santos Pais helped write and that extremists in the United States are trying to impose on the American people.
In recent years, the United States and the United Kingdom have both already come under UN fire for failing to criminalize parents who discipline their children. Last year, for example, the UN released a “human rights” report by “experts,” mostly from totalitarian regimes, blasting U.K. authorities for not bowing down to the anti-family agenda. Among other actions, the UN report called on the government to jail parents who spank or smack their children as a disciplinary tool. The UN “experts” also demanded a tax-funded propaganda campaign demonizing traditional parenting. In 2014, meanwhile, a similar UN “Human Rights Committee” demanded that the federal government ignore the U.S. Constitution to impose a nationwide ban on corporal punishment.
But the global war on parental rights led by the UN and its allies is only just getting started. In fact, according to the UN, “more than half of all children” are in danger — primarily from their parents. Last year, the UN claims “more than one billion children” were affected by “some form of violence.” If you have ever smacked or even lightly spanked your child, the UN is looking at you.
UN “Violence Against Children” czar Santos Pais, who has decades of experience as an international bureaucrat working at the UN and other transnational institutions, made that all fairly clear. Perhaps the most obvious giveaway of the UN bureaucrat’s agenda, though, was her celebration of what she called “fabulous initiatives” regulating parental discipline. The only specific law and campaign she cited as an example of the “fabulous initiatives,” a model for what she would like to see worldwide, was adopted by the Swedish government in 1979. The controversial law includes the world’s first total ban on all physical discipline and “other humiliating treatment.”
