For the Left, all cultures are equal, but some cultures are more equal than others.

For instance, in the world of the Left, the West never has a right to say what is right or wrong — when dealing with an adversary culture and regime, that is.

If it’s Israel, you can start shooting right away.

For example, when it comes to Israelis getting out of line and engaging in monstrous behavior like building houses and apartments on their own territory, they must be denounced immediately for that — and pressured relentlessly to desist from such unconscionable activity.

When Israelis have the audacity to imprison Palestinian terrorists who have massacred Israeli innocent civilians, something has to be done fast. And that’s why, on April 24, 2013, Secretary of State John Kerry and the Obama administration demanded that Israel release a number of Palestinian terrorists from its prisons — to make the Palestinian Authority happy of course. (P.S.: The P.A. was not pressured to stop its mosques, schools and media outlets from teaching that Israel has no right to exist or that Jews are descended from apes and pigs.)

If Kerry were asked what he thinks of apartheid-era South Africa, which Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has compared Israel to, one just dares to presume that he would say it was a bad thing that blacks were considered second-class citizens — which of course it was. He would, in other words, apply a universal standard of human rights on South Africa and declare that a society that marginalizes and disempowers a certain group of people based on skin color is an inferior society and must civilize itself. And that would be a legitimate position.

But for a leftist, this attitude only applies, naturally, when one is dealing with cultures and regimes that are allied to the United States. If one is dealing with an adversary culture or religion, then that culture and religion automatically get a pass for all of their  monstrosities.

And so, therefore, don’t hold your breath waiting to hear from John Kerry or Chuck Hagel – or from Obama and John Brennan — about their moral indignation about the Islamic-Arab slave trade of Black Africans going on to till this day in nations like Mauritania and Sudan. If you are a leftist, all of that doesn’t count or matter.

Thus, we arrive at quite an intriguing comment that Secretary of State John Kerry made on Monday in reference to Saudi gender apartheid, after meeting with Saudi King Abdullah to try to improve U.S.-Saudi relations:

When a reporter asked Kerry about whether Saudi women should be allowed to drive, Kerry responded that the debate was one “best left to Saudi Arabia.”

In other words, there is no universal standard of human rights when it comes to women’s rights, especially if we are dealing with Islam. So if a law arrived that said that Obama’s wife and two daughters were not allowed to drive, and that law was founded on Islamic theology, who are we to put up any resistance or make moralistic judgment calls, right?

Yes, in the Left’s world, if women are being denied the right to an abortion in America, that is an outrage and must be condemned immediately. But if the genitals of young Muslim girls are being cut off with broken glass by the Islamic practice of female genital mutilation sanctioned by Islamic theology, and if Saudi girls are pushed back to their deaths into blazing buildings by Saudi Arabia’s religious police because they are not Islamically covered, then that’s just other cultures practicing their own ways of life.

Who are we to judge?

In Saudi society, therefore, when women are treated like they are less than animals – a misogynist practice inspired and sanctioned by Islamic theology – the Obama administration, due to its leftist idolatry, logically remains indifferent. Consequently,  when dozens of courageous Saudi women protest for their right to drive by getting into their cars and driving — and risk vicious persecution for doing so – it is, according to John Kerry and the Left, none of our business, and not for us to take sides.

Interestingly enough, as TruthRevolt Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro reminds us: In 2011, Hillary Clinton condemned Israeli religious male soldiers leaving concerts at which women sang and the existence of gender-segregated buses in Israel — even though such buses exist only in ultra-religious communities. Shapiro crystallizes the leftist hypocrisy at play here:

“Lecturing a democracy like Israel is liberalism. Lecturing a sexist monarchy like Saudi Arabia is imperialism, according to the Obama administration.”

Shillman Fellow Daniel Greenfield, meanwhile, succinctly capsulizes the tragic and shameless place that America now finds itself in with the Left in charge:

“The nation that once stood up to Communism now boasts of a Secretary of State who can’t say whether women should be allowed to drive.”

Thus, we have it in a nutshell folks: All cultures are equal, but some cultures are more equal than others.

Get it straight: When Muslim girls are murdered in honor killings and disfigured in acid attacks, don’t be racist and judgmental about another way of life.

But when it comes to the Republican War on Women in America, and a woman finds herself purchasing a condom out-of-pocket, without the government’s funding, that’s when you get furious, indignant and judgmental — and scream about women’s rights!

The Left’s utopia is almost here, my friends. Be patient. Just give it a little bit more time.

    PBS Frontline: “Saudi Arabia has a form of democracy.”

    They’re noble savages, but not that noble. They can’t let their women drive! Are you crazy?

    • Biff Henderson

      Their damaged reproductive organs will be strewn all over the highway. Yuck!! Unrelated males will be allowed to lear at the silhouette of the black bags that pass as women’s attire. Males will forfeit a modicum of control they command over their pleasure units. This is not to be. Period.

    • motherofbeaver

      That noble savage schtick has been way oversold.

      • objectivefactsmatter

        “That noble savage schtick has been way oversold.”

        Well yeah. It’s a bunch of BS based on racism.

  • Silver Gonzales

    (Wary of inflaming Saudi sensitivities, Mr. Kerry sidestepped a reporter’s question about whether Saudi women should be allowed to drive, casting the debate as one “best left to Saudi Arabia.”).

    This is an internal issue. All countries are sovereign says the left. Especially if those sovereign countries are Muslim.

    I expect such things from cowardly Eurabian and Canadian politicians. American politcos saying it, even the females not wanting to comment, then you know that the US is done. Just a matter of time.

    May God protect the borderguards, soldiers and policemen. Washington will NOT.

    • laura r

      i would not want to be a SA woman driving alone in a car (even if it was legal there). imagine what would happen on the road or highway or parking lot? it would be dangerous. that country is not safe for women.

      • defcon 4

        Yes and as allah’s messenger has revealed to us women are “deficient in intelligence and religion.”

  • Jason

    Disgusting man, absolutely disgusting. He doesn’t even deserve to be called a man. Anyone that doesn’t condemn Saudi Arabia for this is as good as condoning their actions. What man would say that woman deserve that treatment? He’s a sexist fool who is probably swimming in Saudi oil money, which might explain this and his views on Syria. Grubby little hypocrites like Kerry are par for the course with leftists though, so quick to have shrill screams about a slight injustice here, but mute when it comes to anyone else. They can and will offend us, their fellow countrymen everywhere in the west, but would rather be hypocrites to avoid offending anyone different than them. Kerry, go be a woman for 10 years in Saudi Arabia, preferably from 8-18, so you can fully appreciate the disgusting practices of child marriage, Burka wearing and the inability to do anything without a male “guardian” watching you like a hawk. You disgust me and every other decent human being on this planet.

    • cacslewisfan

      Double thumbs up!

      • Marie Kiraly

        and that’s putting it mildly, Jason. Thanks to our Universities, and the media, the left is getting stronger and stronger and people like O’bummer and Kerry will just flourish.

    • laura

      john kerry is jewish. that shouldnt surprise you, it doesnt surprise me. politics is politics. actually the driving issue is not a big deal considering everything else in SA.

      • motherofbeaver

        Sorry, but Kerry is not Jewish. He may have a Jewish grandparent somewhere in his background but unless I am mistaken his mother is not Jewish nor is his father. Therefore even according to Reform Judaism he is no Jew. We really don’t want him. And what his religion has to do with the story is beyond me.

        • laura r

          they changed the name to “kerry” boston was anti semitic & it was easier to get into politics if you sounded english or irish. my mothers side of the family changed their name legally as well. when a jewish person supports SA, i notice it. check out his backround, its all there.

      • defcon 4

        Why don’t you stop driving then?

        • laura r

          i never had a drivers licence, or been behind a wheel. btw, what is it anyones business about a driving rule? there are more important things for kerry to talk about, much more serious issues againt women.

          • defcon 4

            To belittle islamic persecution of anyone isn’t moral.

    • Linda

      Amen, Jason, amen, amen, and amen again!!!!

  • Pieter

    Listen pal I was born in South Africa from ancestors that landed in this savage land 350 years ago. At that time ethnic Africans were here for less than 80 years, migrated from the central parts of Africa. So, the truth is this, most Southern part of Africa was scarcely populated with a majority of the San and Koi nations (Bushman). They were historically the first permanent residence in this part of the continent. Then came the white man with the written word. The alphabet. As recently as then, 350 years ago nothing was written down for millenniums. So my friend, the whole of America and specifically your Hollywood actors whom are the foremost critics on appartheid do not know a single thing about South Africa other than the communist terrorist Nelson Mandela. I can write this comment to carry on for ever but space and time are limited. So, without knowing the real history and background on South Africa do not mention a single thing until such time you have ascertain yourself about it.

    I love your web news.

  • lessthantolerant

    Albright, Clinton and Kerry, why do Democrats name such ugly ineffectual women to the SoS position?

  • JacksonPearson

    “Hanoi John” is an Obama dhimmi. He hears no evil, speaks no evil, and sees no evil in Islam, Enough said!

    • laura r

      he is no different than most politicians. hello?? they play the party line, dont make waves.

  • LawReader

    Most amusing! But just let a US ‘area or entity’ try and bar a woman entry for not wearing a bra in a see-thru top – and the State Department lawyers will take the week off to respond….

    Is there ANY imaginable world in which Kerry is qualified for this job???

  • motherofbeaver

    He’s not exactly resplendent with brain power. Even his doppleganger Lurch was smarter.

  • Silver Gonzales

    Any US male who is still supporting the Democrats, is no longer a man.

    http://www.wnd.com/wnd_video/kerry-u-s-considers-israeli-settlements-to-be-illegitimate/

    I consider Boston, MASSACHUSETTS to be an illegal outpost built on OCCUPIED land.

  • http://fdnyretiree.com/ Ed FDNYRetiree

    I cannot understand why Americans tolerate this speck of dust who, if ever there were a traitor, is he.

    Kerry launched his career on the backs of American soldiers who he denigrated and falsely accused of crimes, and there is no more despicable scumbag alive than this insect.

    He fits right into the Obama lineup.

  • Silver Gonzales

    It is bewildering to me how any sane man can call themselves a Democrat and be proud of Hanoi John or Hitlary or the Big Zero. How America and Canada raised so many of these hateful arrogant girly men is beyond me.

    The only hope that the US has is to split into 2 separate countries. It is cool to hate conservatives and demonize them. It begins at demonization and ends in Auschwitz, that is their dream.

    Red State America = most of the oil, gold, silver, gas reserves, the rifles, the guns, the pride, the lack of disgusting urban cities, low tax states, access to the coast via Georgia, Alabama and Texas.

    Blue/Purple State America = Bill Maher, Chris Rock, Al Sharpton, Economic Phds, high taxes, John Kerry,,etc. But it has a large part of the fishing industry and much larger coastlines. The wild card is Florida due to the invasion of lefty North Eastern Jews and the Muslims who want to see these Jews dead who both vote Democrats.

    The voting will have to be county by county. Sometimes ugly and messy but a break up is the best thing for conservatives. How these countries will be governed and their new capital cities ( Red State Houston Blue State San Francisco or Portland, Maine ?).
