Somehow, it’s difficult to take seriously a coven of radical, foreign feminazis sent by the United Nations to tut-tut the United States over its allegedly horrible treatment of women.
Because two of the scarf-and-spectacle triplets are from Europe, it gets downright funny when they start castigating the U.S. for its treatment of immigrant women in detention centers. Syrian migrant gang rapes ring any bells?
The trio took it upon themselves to lecture America during a press conference earlier this month, complaining about the gender pay gap, that statistical blip that feminists champion as proof of sexism but that is really just the result of American moms wanting to take time off from careers to raise their children.
The women, who are from Poland, the United Kingdom and Costa Rica, blasted the U.S. for lagging behind “international human rights standards” in regards to its “23 percent gender pay gap, maternity leave, affordable child care and the treatment of female migrants in detention centers.”
The women lead a U.N. working group that will at some point produce a gender-equality report outlining how backwards the U.S. really is.
Their real agenda, however, was to push abortion and gun control.
The three women were most appalled when they visited an Alabama abortion clinic and were confronted by a couple of good citizens who yelled at them that they were killing babies.
UK delegate Frances Raday said, “We were harassed. There were two vigilante men waiting to insult us.”
Well! She never! …
She continued: “Religious freedom does not justify discrimination against women, nor does it justify depriving women of their rights to the highest standard of health care.” By “highest standard of health care” she means the vacuum tube in an abortionist’s office.
Polish delegate Eleonora Zielinska was similarly fighting off apoplexy. “It’s a kind of terrorism,” she said. “To us, it was shocking.”
One of the many ways we Americans are backwards is that we allow free speech. Women of the U.N. like their men the way they like their abortions: safe, legal and rare. They certainly don’t like them with opinions about the value of human life.
We are such barbarians.
In addition to killing babies, the U.N. experts believe that one sure sign of gender equality is the elimination of guns.
“Some states have introduced gun control laws regarding domestic violence, refusing to give perpetrators of domestic violence the right to possess firearms,” Raday said. “This should be a national policy, not an isolated state policy.”
Sure, it’s just “common sense,” right?
It should also be a national policy not to listen to agents of the U.N. who have no authority or moral ground to stand on.
Naturally, they visited the White House before hopping back on their broomsticks and leaving.
They may have found sympathetic ears in the Obama Administration, but America really doesn’t need any advice about gender equality from an organization that lets Saudi Arabia have a seat on its human rights council.
