Even the UN accuses ISIS of human rights abuses, but the left stays silent

On Wednesday President Obama met with certain Muslim leaders in the White House — but the White House refused to state exactly who they were. Sadly, the president fails to realize it’s not his house. It belongs to the American people. I’m quite sure we’ll eventually find out exactly who these individuals were — probably ideologically aligned with the Muslim Brotherhood cohorts who recently visited the State Department. But I hope whoever it was, they discussed this particular topic.

As reported by Fox News, “Islamic State militants in Iraq have committed “gross human rights abuses” that may amount to war crimes or crimes against humanity, including the forced recruitment of children and the abduction of girls to be sold as sex slaves, according to a U.N. report released Thursday.”

“The report by United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) is based off of interviews with witnesses and displaced Iraqis. “UNAMI/OHCHR has received reports of serious violations of international humanitarian law and gross abuses of human rights that have been perpetrated by ISIL and associated armed groups, with an apparent systematic and widespread character,” the report states.”

“These include attacks directly targeting civilians and civilian infrastructure, executions and other targeted killings of civilians, abductions, rape and other forms of sexual and physical violence perpetrated against women and children, forced recruitment of children, destruction or desecration of places of religious or cultural significance, wanton destruction and looting of property, and denial of fundamental freedoms.”

So what happens now? Oh and by the way, that’s not the worst of it.

“The report also says that ISIS has been particularly harsh in regards to the treatment of women, as the group has attacked and killed female doctors and lawyers. On 3 August, ISIL herded approximately 450−500 women and girls to the citadel of Tal Afar in Ninewa where, two days later, 150 unmarried girls and women, predominantly from the Yezidi and Christian communities, were reportedly transported to Syria, either to be given to ISIL fighters as a reward or to be sold as sex slaves, the report said.”

So where are the “war on women” advocates? I know, crickets chirping. The progressive socialist feminist movement would rather not have Obama admit he was wrong than save these women.

Where is Code Pink founder Ms. Medea Benjamin? Oops, that’s right, she was in Tehran, Iran just recently at a Holocaust denial conference. How cheeky of her.

And all of you who were just so outraged at Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson for spanking his son — what about ISIS beheading, crucifying, and burying children alive? Or how about the mentally ill children that ISIS uses as suicide bombers?

What unnerves me are all the Hollywood actors I see on TV crying over cruelty to animals in America. These are the same ones who are silent about late term abortions and ISIS.

People are asking what kind of people could be such animals? My question is what kind of people are we to sit back and allow this EVIL to manifest itself before our eyes — and watch it play out on social media?

There’s something devoid in our global collective character as well. Everyone rallied in the streets of Paris about the Charlie Hebdo Islamic jihadists massacre, but not even a week later, the Islamapologists were out in force. There was a hashtag campaign about the girls taken by Boko Haram that lasted about 13 days. Heck, where were the progressive socialist women standing up for Meriam Ibrahim and her travails in Sudan?

Women and children, Christian and Yazidi minorities are being victimized in the most brutal of ways — sold into slavery, and the left is silent. This silence speaks volumes about the character of the liberal progressive left.

I can only imagine what the left would be saying if the shoe were on the other foot and it was Christians enacting these heinous and barbaric actions against Muslims.

Oh yes, even our own president, the Islamapologist-in-Chief is citing ancient history — the Crusades — to try to find a moral equivalency between ISIS and Christianity. Interestingly enough, no one is still going around shouting “God wills it” — but there are certainly plenty of Islamic jihadists, terrorists, and fascists shouting “Allahu Akhbar” – including those shouting at Jewish students on the campus of the University of California-Davis.

There are three types of people in the world: sheep, wolves, and sheepdogs. Sheep should never be elected to be in charge, they make an incessant noise and passively allow themselves to be slaughtered. And sadly enough, they couldn’t care less when the sheepdog loses its life protecting them — they just move on to the next green pasture.

There was a reason why the Germans referred to our Marines as “Devil Dogs” in World War I. It’s time we heard the enemy say, “who let the dogs out?!”

From Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar” comes this quote, “And Caesar’s spirit, ranging for revenge, With Ate by his side come hot from hell, Shall in these confines with a monarch’s voice Cry “Havoc!” and let slip the dogs of war, That this foul deed shall smell above the earth.”

To paraphrase the Bard, ISIS is a foul deed that should smell below the earth, not on it.
