Saudi Arabia elected to U.N Human Rights Commission. Do you feel the world has gone crazy?
Saudi Arabia has beheaded more than 100 people + this year and stones women for committing adultery.
The U.S. president elect, Hillary Clinton, receives over $5 million in donations from Saudi Arabia and says she's for women rights.
Half of the American people are thinking of electing a President that's currently under investigation by the FBI.
Obama, "We are the most transparent government, ever", has turned a record number of Freedom of informations requests in 2014, only to be exceeded in 2015! Journalists say gov. access is the worst since Nixon.
Is the world bonkers?
Did you know the Saudis may have been handed the position in a backroom deal, in exchange for dropping the regime’s controversial bid to become president of the entire 47-nation council. Ambassador Power and High Commissioner Mogherini did not confirm that this is not the case.
Riyadh pulled out from seeking the council presidency in June following UN Watch’s protest campaign, covered in newspapers worldwide.
Many countries on the council have enacted laws that are at odds with the U.N.'s official stances. To take one obvious example, the U.N.'s High Commissioner for Human Rights advocates against capital punishment, saying that "the death penalty has no place in the 21st century."
But a number of countries on the council, including the U.S., actively sentence people to death and execute them each year. In 2014, council member countries executed at least 139 prisoners, contrary to the commissioner's stated position. That doesn't include executions by China, which also sits on the council and where experts agree that annual execution numbers run into the thousands. Exact numbers on capital punishment in China are hard to come by, as official sources are generally seen to be unreliable.
The world is crazy, we know this has always been true so when insanity raises it's head in the midst of a world organization like the UN why are we supposed to be surprised?
Modern liberalism says you can scream that the West is racist for not having 50% of company boards headed by women but can't complain about Muslim nations that jail female rape victims, flog women for holding hands with a boyfriend or force women to cover up on pain of arrest.
So they judge Saudi progress on "oh, look, women were allowed to call into a women's rights conference" instead of first wave feminism.
Thanks for the explanation, Tamara.
So, I'm assuming you think the world's bonkers, too.
Because your explanation sure sounds bonkers.
Thanks for your answer!
It isn't insanity - it is the political left having a moral hierarchy like Islam. For liberals, women rank above men, blacks above whites, like Muslim men are above women, Christians above pagans. So not insane, just a conflicting moral system.
You're kinder than me, I guess.
Maybe it's brainwashing vs. bonkers.
