Orly Taitz, Top Birther, Cites a "Suspected Assassination Attempt," Applies for U.N. Protection
Having had no luck in U.S. courts getting President Obama thrown out of office because he was born outside the United States, alpha birther Orly Taitz is applying to the United Nations for "urgent action under the mandate for human rights defenders."
Taitz, who claims to have "been the victim of death threats, vandalism, false complaints, and a suspected assassination attempt" for her attempts to unmask the Kenyan pretender, appears to seek protection under the U.N.'s Declaration on the Right and Responsibility of Individuals, Groups and Organs of Society to Promote and Protect Universally Recognized Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms.
The Declaration affirms the rights of human rights activists to be defended "against violence, threats, retaliation, de facto or de jure adverse discrimination," etc.
Back in September of last year, Taitz claimed she could get Obama out of office in 30 days, so she has undoubtedly made powerful enemies. But the suspected assassination attempt is news to us, though she has previously complained of character assassination attempts, as well as death threats.
There is as yet no public response from Margaret Sekaggya, the U.N.'s Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights defenders.
