Real War on Women: Saudi Arabia Implements ‘Wife-Tracking’ System

Okay, since my comments got purged with the rest, I'll ask this question again.... How is this an indictment of the left's "War on Women"? That there is even more horrendous treatment of women in Saudi Arabia, does nothing to undermine the argument that there is discrimination here at home. Just because worse abuse exists somewhere in the world, does not mean that the "mild" forms of discrimination women face in this country is not a real concern. Put another way, Coptic Christians are put to death in Egypt, but that doesn't make the right feel as though Christians in this country are any less under fire in the "War on Christianity." So how does this undermine the left's rhetoric about women?

Because it was more Democrat/Alinsky deception . Wait, this is going to get even more interseting, when the deception to get Obama a third term comes along! I can't wait to se how much farther we will fall from lawfulness, hahaha!

jilgavvent,

I'm not sure what you are talking about when referencing Democrat/Alinsky deception. I've never seen the page in Rules for Radicals that references Saudi Arabia and wife-tracking, but I'll admit that I haven't really read the book cover to cover, only perused some of the chapters to see what the right was throwing a tantrum over.

I'll be honest, those on the right who think Obama is going to seize a third term, and put the country under martial law, will see a nefarious connection anywhere, so I'm not sure how much credence to place in those claims (actually, I am...none is the right answer).

I t doesn't undermine it; it just puts it in its proper perspective.

Cleo,

I guess if you don't want to go to the extent that it undermines the left's narrative, I still don't see how it puts anything in "perspective."

I mean, is the point really to say, "See, liberal women, you don't really have it that bad in this country after all. You need to be quiet and count your blessings."

Last time I checked, pointing to worse discrimination and using it as an example of what could be done, isn't addressing the fundamental discrimination that takes place--it's, in fact, ignoring that there is a problem. As I said before, horrendous treatment across the world does not make milder forms of discrimination permissible.

But the R-Party needs to have a much better dialogue with them,

They have to earn their votes by treating them right, spending time talking-listening to and giving them as many reasonable-practical-affordable-things that they're asking for !

Just be reasonable, it's not about the $$, it's about caring about them the right way !

The problem is that the Rep Leadership has taken them for granted and not showed them proper deserved recognition !

Some say they did it purposely in order to throw the election to the pro-amnesty Obama, damage the Rep Party and in turn attempt to minimize the Tea Party's chances for continued success and-or revival !

Remember the “war on women” the GOP is supposedly waging? I wonder what progressive women would dub this:

Saudi Arabia has long been the only country in the world that does not allow women to drive. Now, there appears to be a new development in controlling the movements of its female population: the Kingdom has reportedly introduced an electronic tracking system alerting male guardians when a woman has left the country.

Reports emerged of the system last week when Manal al-Sherif, a women’s rights campaigner who has urged women to defy the driving ban, was alerted by...
