The United States of America is the only state in the world that officially supported the glorification of Nazism in the UN

Summary of Disinformation

The United States of America is the only state in the world that officially supported the glorification of Nazism in the UN. There is also Ukraine, but that doesn’t count.

Disproof

The US has not supported the glorification of Nazism in the UN. In UN GA held in November 2016, the US was one of three countries to vote against a resolution condemning the "glorification of Nazism” over freedom of speech issues and concerns that Russia was using it to carry out political attacks against its neighbourshttps://www.cbsnews.com/news/us-votes-against-anti-nazi-resolution-at-united-nations 

"We condemn without reservation all forms of religious and ethnic intolerance or hatred at home and around the world," - said Deputy U.S. Representative to the Economic and Social Council Stefanie Amadeo, explaining the US vote. "However, due to this resolution's overly narrow scope and politicized nature, and because it calls for unacceptable limits on the fundamental freedom of expression, the United States cannot support it," - she said.
