When I first saw this story, I thought it was an Onion-style joke. I am still not entirely convinced otherwise. Apparently, the UN has made genocidal dictator, Robert Mugabe, an unofficial ambassador for tourism.
I know the UN is a joke. But this is turning into a parody of a cliché. The man who is banned from travelling in the EU member states and in the United States for atrocities he committed as tyrant of Zimbabwe is deemed a “leader for tourism” for the UN’s World Tourism Organization. (Travel tip: don’t go to Zimbabwe if you are a white farmer, gay, or anyone who disagrees with his junta. Things will not end well for you.)
The UN has become a classic example of the inmates running the asylum. Long past time for us to stop funding it and to get it the heck out of New York.
