US one of only three countries to vote against UN resolution condemning glorification of Nazism /Link
The US has voted against a United Nations resolution that condemns the glorification of Nazism due to the issues it raises over free speech protections, the state department has said. America votes against the resolution each year, which passes overwhelmingly, though the first “no” vote from Donald Trump’s administration is likely to generate more interest following the president’s “many sides” comment in response to the violence in Virginia earlier this year. Republicans slammed Mr Trump at the time for failing to condemn the far right groups who were involved in the violence in Charlottesville, while white nationalists praised him.
