Thousands of women from around the world are gathered in New York at the United Nations Headquarters for the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) in order to spend two weeks figuring out how to pay for so-called “gender equality.”
The agenda includes heaping blame on the U.S. for its supposed neglect of women’s issues.
Recently, however, fair journalists recognized that the United States has not received credit for the effective help over the past eight years in Africa.
We provided $55 million to African nations to improve legal rights for women, and we work to end violence against women in the form of honor crimes and abuse against displaced women. The U.S. has committed $15 billion in AIDS relief in more than 120 countries (especially Africa) and $500 million to combat the transmission of HIV/AIDS from mother to child.
Paying for “Gender Equality”
The United States has led 110 other nations in sponsoring efforts to facilitate women’s participation in political processes. We have given $400 million for educational opportunities in Africa to benefit 80 million children. In Afghanistan and Iraq, various initiatives at a cost of over $10 million have helped women gain the skills they need to participate in civic activities that build democracy and effectively empower women. In the fight against human trafficking, the U.S. has spent $280 million in 120 countries. These are just a few of the ways that our nation is helping women achieve their potential in realistic and effective ways. In contrast, the United Nations’ agenda for women hinges on universal access to abortion-on-demand.
…the United Nations and powerful corporations that embrace socialist and Marxist ideology and radical social views and values are shaping the understanding of “gender equality” around the world.
Wearing their skin tight, designer jeans, the latest Nike kicks, sipping Starbucks cappucinos while watching the latest lefty, anti American troops, Hollywood blockbuster, they attack the very people and structure that makes their way of life remotely possible.
Yes, yes, of course America hasn’t done enough to further the rights of women in the world..Uh huh.
Apparently, only America is obliged to find solutions to all the problems of the world, while at the same time, “tolerating other cultures” and staying out of the affairs of other countries.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch……..
In ALL Muzlim countries…Iran, Sawdi Arabia, Afghanistan etc etc etc, women are treated as sub-human, are lucky if they aren’t tortured or stoned in the name of upholding their twisted idea of family “honor”. They are punished for “inviting” gang rape and coerced into wearing black sacks that barely allow them vision for the times they are actually “permitted” to leave their house, accompanied by a male, of course.
Notice any UN or National Org. for Women or Hollywood stars protesting or wearing “ribbons” in solidarity with these women?
Didn’t think so.
Let’s not even get started on the Izlamofascist-Nazi dictatorships’ campaigns against contraception and ho-mo-se-xuals, shall we.
Is the world a better or worse place thanks to the the United States?
Don’t answer that.
Then again, -Anyone with half a mind already knows that.
Here’s a lil list of reasons to love our country, for those who have short fuses for a memory.
-The concepts of free speech, privacy and religious freedom.
-Our prosperity, for which we are markedly unashamed.
-The rule of law. The right of victims to confront their accusers, the right to an attorney, the right to refuse admission to government officials entering your home or office. (Try that in a Muzlim country..Rrright.)
America is the most big-hearted Nation on earth, welcoming people from all over the world fleeing oppression,poverty, or just wanting a taste of what so many tragically take for granted every day of their free lives.
