Will The UN Now Elect Ahmadinejad Grand Marshal of its Gay Pride Parade?

I believe this is the first time I have even chosen to put one of my posts in a category Bruce created, “Useless Nations.” Well, today the UN seems pretty useless, given the election of “Iran to its Commission on the Status of Women, handing a four-year seat on the influential human rights body to a theocratic state in which stoning is enshrined in law and lashings are required for women judged ‘immodest.’

Asking us to “have a look at what the newest defender of international women’s rights is up to these days”, Allahpundit opines:

This is the same group whose Human Rights Council includes luminaries like China and Saudi Arabia. See now why Ahmadinejad always includes a passage in his annual speech about expanding the number of permanent members in the Security Council or giving more power to the General Assembly? In the interest of “equality,” there’s no laugh test for exerting influence at the UN.

Jennifer Rubin notes one nation that didn’t object to this choice:

The U.S. couldn’t muster a word of opposition — not even call for a vote. That would be because . . . why? Because our policy is not to confront and challenge the brutal regime for which rape and discrimination are institutionalized policies. No, rather, we are in the business of trying to ingratiate ourselves, and making the U.S. as inoffensive as possible to the world’s thugocracies. We’d no sooner object to Iran on the UN Commission on the Status of Women than we would leave the UN Council on Human Rights.

Gosh, it sure helps having women at the helm of our nation’s foreign policy and representing us at the UN.

  1. I am saddened by this..but also saddened by your constant dismissal of ANY of her work for women……but that having been said..would you feel more comfortable with john kerry or bill richardson as sos… in fact i can’t think or anyone else that i would trust that obie would have put there…once again i will say the silence from the republicans when mccain was asked for his documents… they the republicans just effin sat there and said NOT an effin word to obie about his…I now feel less safe because of that ….do keep that in mind…

  2. The world is moving backwards for women and freedoms.
    Yet the Left seems blinded into standing by and applauding as each backward step is taken!

    It is appalling!

    I was reading an account by a leftist woman violently raped in Haiti by a black Haitian man. She blamed white men for it.

    I guess when, a few years from now, she is imprisoned for being a rape victim she will still blame everyone but those who stood by as Sharia crept in.

  3. Is this really a big deal? Do any of you know anything about how the UN, and this commission specifically, works? Iran will be one of 45 countries and they have one meeting a year that lasts for less than two weeks. Four years later, some other country will replace Iran. Pakistan has been on there for the past few years – did that get any of you mad? Cuba, too. AND UNDER BUSH’S WATCH. What do you think is going to happen as a result of this? Does anyone want to actually make an assertion about what this will mean, or will you continue with the gossipy innuendo?

  4. wow, levi, so in the tank are you for Obama that you can’t even criticize him for this. Amazing, simply amazing. And you can’t even criticize him.

    left leaning, point well taken. I criticize Susan Rice more for this than I do Hillary. And especially Obama. If Hillary were president, this wouldn’t have happened. Or at least the US would have objected.

  5. wow, levi, so in the tank are you for Obama that you can’t even criticize him for this. Amazing, simply amazing. And you can’t even criticize him.

    Criticize him for what? There are a whole lot of things that I don’t like about Obama, but I’m not going to jump around wailing like a banshee when Fox News tells me to. Did you know that the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women existed before you got out of bed this morning? Women in Pakistan don’t fare much better than the women in Iran, so I guess that means you must be equally mad at George Bush for their being on the council when he was President, too, right? And because your source is the FAIR AND BALANCED news network, doesn’t that mean that they should have reported it when Bush presided over Pakistan being chosen for this committee?

    Really, how drunk are you to believe that the President of the United States has control over which member states in the UN get chosen for which councils? How you can hold Obama personally responsible for this is totally ridiculous, never mind the fact that you’re demonstrating how little you know about how the UN operates. If you’re going to start saying that certain countries can never be on certain committees, you’re defeating the whole point of their membership in the first place.

    This is as dumb as when you guys tried to blame Obama for the Somali pirate situation in the third month of his presidency. You have not lost your touch.

  6. I just looked at the title of this post. Visualize that guy in a thong. AAAAArgh!

  7. Levi, I never blamed Obama for the Somali Pirate thing, indeed, praised him on it. Seems you write on prejudice, assuming we subscribe to the image you have of a conservative.

    Why, let me ask again, do you spend so much time here when you don’t even bother to pay attention to what we say?

    Oh, you don’t remember? It’s the lone entry categorized ever-so-dramatically as “AMERICA HELD HOSTAGE.” In all the years that I surf the conservative internet, I’ll never forget the time I happened upon this ridiculous post about Obama being responsible for a piracy situation. I know you didn’t make that particular post, but this is the same kind of thing; blaming Obama for something that he had absolutely nothing to do with.

    Way to continue to dodge, by the way. I suspect that for as long as I bother doing this, you’ll continue to dodge the bulk of my argument to play some retarded semantics game, is that about right? You sure you don’t want to talk about how outrageous it is that George Bush allowed the Islamist state of Pakistan to be selected to this committee?

    Two words: Benazir Bhutto.

    And then we double up laughing at Levi trying to spin how a country that was led by a woman is somehow worse than one that violently suppresses them.

    Ignorant, foolish child. You have no idea of what you are saying, only that your Obama told you to repeat it, and you do. Such a lack of intellectual curiosity would be disquieting if it weren’t such a hilarious demonstration of the nonexistence of intelligence among liberals and “progressives” and their bleating-sheep mentality in which they obediently repeat every talking point Obama feeds them.

  11. tripple L,

    It was when the US police became human rights don’t matter that I lost any respect for her.

    Levi’s dismissal of the absurdity of this isn’t surprising, since his belief system is that which has killed 60 million and counting.

    But lets not forget that Levi doesn’t believe brown people can handle democracy.

  12. I think it should be obvious at this point that Satan’s minions are in control. How the debate over that could still be raging, I have no idea.

  13. Scott Ott would be proud of that headline.

  14. Commission on the Status of Women… just the name describes yet another worthless (but expensive) UN circle jerk.

    The UN is beyond worthless; it’s evil. If we had any sense, we’d withdraw and boot the sorry lot out of here.

  15. Well, Levi, as long as we pay a hefty chunk of the bills, I’d say we have a reasonable lever….
