8. Hillary Clinton and her Anti-Woman State Department
The Left’s misogynistic tendencies were further on display in Hillary Clinton’s State Department with their utter disregard over the potential stoning to death of Sakineh Mohammadie Ashtiani, who was sentenced to death by stoning in Iran. Yes, Iran. The newest member of the United Nation’s Commission on Women’s Rights. The statement that Hillary Clinton’s State Department released was repugnant in every way. Ashtiani has been sentenced to death by stoning in Iran, for the crime of adultery. Her confession, which she retracted, was only obtained after she had received 99 lashes in front of her 17-year-old child. Her testimony, as is the law in Iran, only counted for half as much as a man’s. What did Hillary Clinton’s State Department have to say?
We have grave concerns that the punishment does not fit the alleged crime,” Assistant Secretary of State P.J. Crowley said. “For a modern society such as Iran, we think this raises significant human rights concerns.” Calling Iran’s judicial system “disproportionate” in its treatment of women, Crowley said, “From the United States’ standpoint, we don’t think putting women to death for adultery is an appropriate punishment.”
Oh, well, that’s okay then. They have ‘grave concerns’. Much like how President Obama was “deeply concerned” during the Iranian election protests when Neda was killed, shot dead in cold blood in the middle of the street. And as long as they think the punishment might not be quite ‘appropriate’ – Those adultering strumpets should be punished, but maybe stoning to death.
Meanwhile,the Left is frantically defending the mosque at Ground Zero, as a way to build bridges and reach out to the Muslim world. They aren’t too worried about the stoned women though – Hey, it’s not like they can even vote, am I right, fellas? As always, the left, including the women of the left, are apologists for evil behavior so that they can tout themselves as culturally enlightened and Better Than You. They explain away all wrongs perpetrated by others by trying to rationalize irrational and insane behavior. Human beings, be damned.
