…..and then convince her retarded liberal pals adopt some, too?

Cate Blanchett and Rohingya.

And lose those glasses, Cate. You put themilitary’s “birth control” glasses to shame.

Cate Blanchett has relived the horrors she saw when she visited camps full of Rohingya refugees forced to flee Myanmar in a speech to the UN.

In a speech to the Security Council in New York on Tuesday, the actress said nothing prepared her for ‘the extent and depth of suffering’ she saw when she visited camps in Bangladesh for the refugees who fled a violent crackdown by Myanmar’s military.

Blanchett said she heard ‘gut-wrenching accounts’ of torture, rape, people seeing loved ones killed before their eyes, and children thrown into fire and burned alive.

‘I am a mother, and I saw my children in the eyes of every single refugee child I met,’ she said.

‘I saw myself in every parent. How can any mother endure seeing her child thrown into a fire?’

‘Their experiences will never leave me,’ the two-time Academy Award winner told the packed building.

She arrived at the UN headquarters in New York looking every bit the diplomat in a white blouse and vest under stylish blue pant suit.

Blanchett visited the refugee camps in Bangladesh in her role as a goodwill ambassador for the UN refugee agency in March this year.

The Rohingya have long been treated as outsiders in Buddhist-majority Myanmar, even though their families have lived in the country for generations.

Nearly all have been denied citizenship since 1982, effectively rendering them stateless, and they are also denied freedom of movement and other basic rights.

The latest crisis began with attacks by an underground Rohingya insurgent group on Myanmar security personnel last August in northern Rakhine State.

Myanmar’s military responded with counterinsurgency sweeps and has been accused of widespread rights violations, including rape, murder, torture and the burning of Rohingya homes and villages – leading about 700,000 Rohingya to flee to neighboring Bangladesh.

The Security Council meeting on Tuesday commemorated the first anniversary of the crackdown.

Blanchett, who visited refugee camps in Bangladesh in March, recounted stories that were told to her and said it was important to recall that last year wasn’t the first attack on the Rohingya.

In 1978, she said, Gul Zahar told her she was a young woman among 200,000 Rohingya refugees who streamed into Bangladesh ‘fleeing brutality and widespread abuse.’ In 1992, Gul was again among another 250,000 stateless Rohingya who sought safety in Bangladesh. And now at age 90, Blanchett said, Gul is ‘sadly’ a refugee again living in poverty in Bangladesh ‘with the sole wish that her great grandchildren will have a better future.’

‘The need for this future to transpire inside Myanmar has never been more urgent,’ Blanchett said. ‘If we fail to act now, Gul’s grandchildren, like thousands of others, will be unable to escape this relentless cycle that generations of Rohingya have experienced.’

The Australian actress said women who were raped by Myanmar security forces are now giving birth to children who are not only stateless but ‘are likely to carry this stigma for the rest of these lives.’

She urged support for the refugees and Bangladeshi host communities, and she implored the Security Council to help the Rohingya return with ‘a clear pathway to full citizenship.’

‘We have failed the Rohingya before,’ Blanchett said. ‘Please, let us not fail them again.’

    The government in Myanmar is only doing what you and your socialist pals have
    advocated for the American people for several decades. Either you are a vile
    hypocrite or too stupid to be breathing air.

    The Rohingya are muslims. Most of the country is some variety of Buddism that also worships “nats”, local evil spirits. They don’t get along. Hey, how about letting that wonderful worldwide islamic fellowship take care of the problem? It ain’t none of our business Cate.

    Doesn’t sound any different from the times in the 1920s-1940s when the Japanese invaded Korea, and raped the land and the women (research “comfort girls”). Even today, half-caste Korean children of ANY other nationality are outcast; no schooling, no careers, no marriage to “good” spouses, only the lowest of the low for them.

    Take care of your own and let the 3rd world skanks die. Emotional thinking in any social scenario is pathetic. It solves nothing but placates and soothes, temporarily, the egos of the self-important douchebags appointed as elite celebrities by the ignorant adoring masses. You really think the Hollywood elite care about you? Nope they react to headline bullshit.

    As Drew said they are muzztards and just like their fellow satanic cult worshippers around the globe they are always the victim. You never get the Buddhist perspective. When the host has a pathogenic infection the best thing to do is rid itself of the pathogen.

    The word “muslim” isn’t found in that entire story, yet that’s what it’s all about.

    Since it’s moslems my give-a-fuck meter says I’m totally out; don’t have a single fuck left to give. The world would be a far better place without any of that demonic ideology left in it!
