Ironic Animation

This animated 'toon on the Canadian Museum for Human Rights website assures us that, as per the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, we have the right "to a fair and public trial" and to be considered "innocent until found guilty." Ironically, neither of these rights are available when a Canadian is tried by one of the land's many "human rights" courts. To be accorded such rights, one must be tried in a regular criminal court, where they do apply.

Not that this anomaly is mentioned in the 'toon--or anywhere on the CMHR site. How could it be, when the edifice revels in Canada's "human rights culture" and aims to spread its message and example across the globe?
