Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

No joke: the Islamic Republic of #Iran was just appointed to the @UN_Women's rights committee that judges complaints of women's rights violations. Yes, a day after the regime sentenced women's rights lawyer Nasrin Sotudeh to 38 years prison & 148 lashes.

And some lefties have no idea why so many on the right have a contemptuous view of the UN.

The UN is a cabal of corrupt, anti-semitic, terrorist-loving 3rd world dictators. We should stop funding these America-hating fascists.

With the USA ignoring of UN edicts and invading and de-stabilizing anything it wants, it's not like you adhere to its desires anyway.

Jeff. Here's some perspective.

"Nine of the 29 countries listed are actually members of the Human Rights Council, a Geneva-based group made up of 47 UN member countries. These are Burundi, Egypt, Rwanda, Cuba, Venezuela, China, India, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates."

"Jeff. Here's some perspective"

That's the funniest thing I have read here today.

that -------- operates in a vacuum of lies and fantasy, that conveniently changes from day to day dependent of the excuse or rationalization needed to rehab his beloved affliction

Welcome to representational democracy for world governance.
What are the alternatives? Isolationism doesn't work well.

This just in: The United States of America elected a traitorous, women assaulting, racist criminal as President, whose primary job is to protect and defend the constitution of the united states.

Was the US on the UN commission that determined war crimes back in 2003?

My view is people like you hate the UN because a Democrat invented it.
The UN was created by FDR to further US foreign policy.
That requires leadership.
That leadership is what disqualified Hillary Clinton for a lot of those who didn't vote for her.

Thats a sorry view

The UN was created by FDR to further US foreign policy.

So its about growing Empire?

That requires leadership.

According to the left it requires armed forces.

That leadership is what disqualified Hillary Clinton for a lot of those who didn't vote for her.

If you call, droning more nations and civilians, causing the mass immigration of people from Syria, Libya and Honduras, leadership, you do you. But seems like those people who didn't vote for her know poor leadership when they it exposes itself.

Face it, the UN isn't worth a jug of warm spit. Really sad that a country that publicly hangs gays from cranes, stone women to death for accused adultery, and imprison women for being raped is the judge of civil rights abuse upon women. It would be a joke if it wasn't true.

The only thing worse than the UN is not having the UN. Only dummies think it should only represent our western point of view, that's not what it is there for. It is there to try and prevent any additional World Wars. Grow up Jeff, many of the nations are primitive or have very different societies from our own but it is better to face them in a body like the UN than on a battlefield. I notice several Presidents, both named Bush, ignored that idea and disaster ensued.
I watched "W" last night and if Stone had an iota of truth in his movie then G.W. Bush should be in prison right now along with Cheney.

They are but we respected their rights under our Constitution to put Orange Hitler into the White House so really, what is your point? You don't have one dumbass!

They are but we respected

Who is this "we", Danni? You do realize we are all Americans, right? And "we" do have as much right to have a country run like we want it as you do, right?

Except for people who live in California or New York, right?

Isn't that what you're always saying, boaz?

You have depth, boaz, but only on the surface. Down deep inside, you're is shallow.

You are an embarrassment to Conservatives.

Drone strikes are up under Trump along with civilian casualties. So yeah, I'd say using drones strategically and keeping casualties low was pretty damn good leadership decisions.

Do tell us how Clinton caused Syria, Libya and Honduras. I'd love to hear it.

I'm not sure why we expect anything other than lies from you anymore.

And, as I said, we respected the Constitution and, even though we were very unhappy with the results of the EC, we respected Donald Trump's right to be President. We didn't threaten violence as many on the right have done if he is somehow deprived of a second term have done, as he himself has hinted just recently. So don't give me your b.s. about who respects the Constitution and the rule of law when it is those on your side who have made it clear that they will ignore those limits if they feel that Trump is not reelected.
He's made disturbing comments himself, just this past week that no other President, in our history as a nation, has ever made. Where do you draw the line about what threats a President may make without overstepping the Constitution and the rule of law? You are an enabler of Trump who depends on fools like you to believe he can say or do anything he wants without care for the law, right and wrong, or the Constitution. He's going to call out "Bikers for Trump" if he loses? You respect that comment? Own it.

Drone strikes are up, comrades! Progress is being achieved in the Forever War!

#17 | Posted by visitor_ Maybe those people in "flyover" country will have an attitude like yours and stop supplying food and fuel to your cities. Those peons that you disparage prevent you from starving, freezing and living in the dark.
