Amnesty International’s Selective Outrage

Amnesty International director: Use of tear gas in Ferguson ‘clear violation of human rights’ « Hot Air

The situation in Ferguson, Missouri is already historic. In a first of its kind development, the human rights watchdog Amnesty International has deployed a team of observers in the United States. The 13-person delegation arrived last week and, on Tuesday, Amnesty International Executive Director Steven Hawkins revealed his findings. Disturbingly, he determined that the police in Ferguson were complicit in a “violation of human rights standards.” Their infraction: The flagrant use of … tear gas?

So…do you think the fucktard America-haters at Scamnesty International will find the barbaric slaughter of James Wright Foley in Iraq a “violation of human rights standards?”

Yep.  As I suspected – not one single word about Foley on their front page, as of 9:05 PM, 8/19/14.

Probably not.  They know better than to piss off the jihadis.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
