In a move that is both hilarious and sad, a Saudi television station censored the hair of German Chancellor Angela Merkel during her visit to the Islamic nation — as she did not wear the customary head scarf and full robe that women are forced to hide themselves under.
Ironically, Saudi Arabia is the newest addition to the United Nation’s Women’s Rights Commission.
Sunday marked Merkel’s first trip to the nation in seven years. While visitors are not legally required to wear the customary coverings, they are still advised to do so in order to avoid possible arrests.
Saudi Arabia’s addition to the commission, which is “exclusively dedicated to the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women,” has been mocked globally. Even the far-left Washington Post referred to it as a “bit of a slap in the face for women’s rights.”
“Electing Saudi Arabia to protect women’s rights is like making an arsonist into the town fire chief,” Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, said on Twitter after the announcement. “It’s absurd — and morally reprehensible.”
Neuer elaborated in an interview with France 24 that Saudi’s addition was a “black day for women’s rights, and for all human rights.”
“Saudi discrimination against women is gross and systematic in law and in practice. Every Saudi woman,” said Neuer, “must have a male guardian who makes all critical decisions on her behalf, controlling a woman’s life from her birth until death. Saudi Arabia bans women from driving cars. Why did the UN choose the world’s leading oppressor of women to promote gender equality and the empowerment of women?”
“Today the UN sent a message that women’s rights can be sold out for petro-dollars and politics,” said Neuer, “and it let down millions of female victims worldwide who look to the world body for protection.”
Women in Saudi Arabia, beyond being forced to hide themselves under all black garb leaving only their eyes exposed, are not allowed to drive cars. They are also not permitted to get married, work, or travel without the permission of a male guardian.
“Saudi Arabia’s interest in occupying one of the Commission’s seats allocated to the Asia-Pacific region is an indication that the country wants to play an active role in the work of this important body,” the United Nations said in a statement to Fortune about the decision to permit Saudi Arabia to join the commission.

Joe Biden Goes Full Word Salad on CNN Chris Cuomo Appearance
No idea what he’s saying.
Joe Biden appeared to lost his train of thought at least three times within the span of a few sentences during an appearance with CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Tuesday night, nominally speaking about the Wisconsin Democratic Primary in a manner that was almost impossible to understand.
Watch Biden’s answer to Cuomo’s question about the primary here:
“I, you know, but I think that, you know – I think if there’s an election, if there was an election, if people – depending how many showed up, I think I’ll have done well, but who knows.”
Biden’s communication skills have increasingly come under skepticism as the likely Democratic nominee utilizes streaming technology to appear publicly on network and online broadcasts. This isn’t the first time he’s struggled to explain himself while appearing from his Delaware home, appearing to blend together words when speaking about President Trump’s efforts to marshal the necessary supply of facemasks last month.
Leading podcaster Joe Rogan questioned Biden’s mental acuity during an episode of his show last week, stating the the Democratic Party is “making us all morons” on account of Biden’s pending nomination. Rogan has been one of the major national commentators to question Biden’s cohesion on account of the video evidence of frequent and numerous confusing gaffes.
The Democratic frontrunner has forgotten that he’s running for President, thought that he’s campaigning in Vermont while actually in New Hampshire, and confused his wife with his sister during his Super Tuesday victory speech.
Now is the time for the Democratic Party to seriously ask itself if Biden’s mental acuity is at the level required to wage a major Presidential campaign and actually govern from the White House. Whether the DNC elite has the integrity to sincerely inquire about the matter is another question entirely.
