Yes, the same country where a grown woman can’t leave the house unless she has a male “chaperone” is being praised for their record on women’s rights at the United Nations.

Via FPM:
. Today’s United Nations punchline has been brought to you by billions of your tax dollars. It’s your money. You deserve a good laugh:

As the UN Human Rights Council scrutinized Saudi Arabia’s domestic rights record this morning… out of 95 countries who took the floor, 82 praised Saudi Arabia.

Hillel Neuer, executive director of the Geneva-based human rights group UN Watch, said the country is poised to win a seat on the Human Rights Council.

“A country whose legal system routinely lashes women rape victims rather than punish the perpetrators should not have been praised effusively by members of the UN’s top human rights body,” said Neuer. “Instead the world should have addressed the Saudi regime’s use of cruel, inhuman and degrading punishments, such as flogging, amputations and eye-gouging.”

While they were at it, they should have praised Charles Manson for his work in "birth control." :dropjaw:
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.

  • Itchy yet?
Ever seen a stoning for confirmed adultery? Very instructive of the way they think.

Both perpetrators are stoned. The man is buried in a pit up to his hips, with gravel as the fill. The woman is buried up to her chest, with sand as the fill. Should they escape the pit, it is assumed Allah wills it and they are judged innocent. Guess who has the better chance of escaping?

Edit: Two points that may come up:

Confirmed adultery is when the husband walks in during the actual act. If it is the wife walking in, it doesn't count.
Yes, I saw it, own eyes. We were forbidden to interfere, on pain of severe nastiness both then and to our careers.

Anyone who tells you you can't buy happiness has never been in a book store or an animal shelter.

You are the result of 3 billion years of evolutionary success. Act like it.
