John Kerry’s “War on Women”

Kerry is a prominent representative of the United States but it seems he’s reluctant to stand up for the fundamental American values of equality, as it pertains to women around the world.

As reported by Elliott Adams on the Council on Foreign Relations blog:

On the move for Saudi women to be allowed to drive, Kerry was careful not to appear to take sides. Noting that while the United States embraces gender equality, “it is up to Saudi Arabia to make its own decisions about its own social structure and choices and the timing of whatever events.”

My mom raised me on a foundational premise that “A man must stand for something or else he will fall for anything.” I guess Secretary of State John Kerry’s mom failed to teach him the same maxim, or perhaps she did and he lacks the moral courage and intestinal fortitude to make a stand.

Kerry is symbolic of America as a weak horse, as first described by Osama Bin Laden. Our first mistake in the Middle East that earned us that moniker was to withdraw from Beirut after the terrorist bombing in 1983, with no definitive military action. We followed that up with our hasty withdrawal from Somalia, and lack of a focused response after terrorist attacks in Khobar Towers, against the USS Cole, and against our US Embassies in Africa.

Now just days ago, when confronted about making a stand against the practice of denying women’s rights in Saudi Arabia, Kerry tucked in his tail and acquiesced to the Saudis. So much for the “War on Women.” We now see unequivocally that liberal progressives only use that as some inane political gimmick, not principled conviction. They’re only concerned about some women’s rights – but not all.

Far be it from us to criticize Saudi repression of women and the ludicrous and offensive practice of preventing women from driving. How far does Secretary Kerry go with this “your own decisions about your own social structure?” Does it matter to him that Saudi women don’t get to make that decision–because the country has no democratic institutions whatsoever?

However, does anyone hear a peep about this story? Does MSNBC challenge Kerry for not standing up for women’s rights? Nah, progressive socialists only believe in collectivizing Americans for their political gain. They really don’t care.

It’s just a sad state of affairs in our country that a young woman like Sandra Fluke believes equality is defined by the government, i.e. American taxpayers, paying for her birth control. Sadly, young women in Saudi Arabia would just like the chance to enjoy liberty and freedom — simple actions taken for granted by Ms. Fluke, like driving a car. Ms. Fluke, are you proud of Secretary Kerry?

  1. Yeah, the lack of courage and intestinal fortitude comes to mind – but what do I know, I’m just a dumb old southern country boy who pushed his daughter to the pinnacle of her ability.

    Guess that’s why she’s a Sergeant in the Marine Corps out there defending this country and hates people like John Kerry…!

    • …and she’s no doubt a good example of a strong woman to the mostly low status women (if she’s in the Middle East). Guessing here noone is telling her she can’t drive either!!! 😉

  2. Thank you Allen West for shedding light on the obama administratio. Their attitude over all is “as long as i get mine” you are the main one to shed light on what we surmise to be true. I feel that you have been amonst the muslim fought them andseen the real picture. keep up the good work.

  3. I could not support this man for any public office position, elected or otherwise. After one reads his profile of military service on why he was asked to resign , then fined as a result of his actions, it is easily determined he is not the material for representation of the people. Unfortunately, West always resorts to taking the low road as opposed to the high road.

  4. a key point from above “…Kerry is symbolic of America as a weak horse, as first described by Osama Bin Laden. Our first mistake in the Middle East that earned us that moniker was to withdraw from Beirut after the terrorist bombing in 1983, with no definitive military action. We followed that up with our hasty withdrawal from Somalia, and lack of a focused response after terrorist attacks in Khobar Towers, against the USS Cole, and against our US Embassies in Africa…”

    Now the above past actions cover more than one President. The problem is not “solved” if someone says “well, in such and such situation, the now long gone Republican president didn’t respond well…” . The US has to learn from its past mistakes and…do BETTER!

    We ALL suffered from 9/11…which happened because the terrorists were emboldened and thot the US weak. But (unfortunately for the terrorists) that “cowboy” as some would sneer, happened to be in office. Al Gore…he might have commented on global warming…but who knows if he would have acted.

    Col. West is right to note Kerry’s WEAKNESSES. Kerry has NO core values regarding women. (I think the fairly decent UN Declaration of Human Rights could have at least been cited)

    If you are enslaved to silly ideology that each culture makes up its own rules…and is not further accountable for clear human rights violations, you are enslaved to FALSE ideas.

  5. A friend’s father was a Navy chief running a riverboat in Vietnam. He had to help rescue Kerry when he grounded his boat during a firefight. He was not happy with Kerry.
    Muslims–especially Arabs–are still operating with a 7th century mentality. Muhammad was an epileptic warlord.

    • Glad you get it. obama and regime are Marxist pieces of garbage and Kerry, well, he’s not just any piece of garbage, he’s been at it longer than obama (Kerry is older) so that makes him a whole HEAP of reeking garbage.
      By the way, glad you read David Horowitz. Wished more would.
