Okay, this may not strictly count as a domestic nanny-state item, but since UN supporters generally come prepacked mailed-fist-in-velvet-glove with homegrown statists, I figure it merits a quick mockin’ here:
It didn’t attract much notice, but the General Assembly of the United Nations ended the year by passing a disgusting resolution protecting Islam from criticism of its human rights violations.
Lots of non-Muslims voted for it – a sign that more and more corrupt Third World governments are identifying with the ideology of Islam, even if they don’t accept its doctrines.
The resolution goes under the innocuous title “Combating defamation of religions” – but the text singles out “Islam and Muslims in particular”. It expresses “deep concern that Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism”.
Wrongly associated? As of today, terrorists have carried out 10,277 separate attacks since September 11, 2001. They all belong to the same religion, and it ain’t Methodism.
It sure ain’t. Although, as we know from the incessant chirping and twittering of our own Tranzi/PC handwringers here, the Methodists are just as bad.
It’s just that it’s in, y’know, poor taste to notice the sins of the Islamic fundies. After all, if you make them mad, they might KILL somebody.
