Canada’s “fearless feminist” Environment Minister praises UAE at COP22: Puts climate over women

Rebel Staff
 

Canada’s Environment Minister Catherine McKenna is here in Marrakech, Morocco at the UN Climate Change Conference and she has congratulated United Arab Emirates for their leadership in getting youth involved to act on climate.

That all sounds nice but like everything here in Marrakech, there is a healthy helping of hypocrisy and delusion involved in McKenna’s statement.

McKenna is a self-proclaimed “fearless feminist”, but would someone who really cared about women’s rights thank a place like the UAE for anything? The UAE, where women need a male relative’s permission to marry and where “illegal pregnancies” are punishable by flogging.

I guess some fearless feminists are just too scared to speak truth to power when the chance is right in front of them.

LEVITICUS 2013;
When you speak of a “parallel history”, are you referring to books like Canadian author, James Bacque’s, "CRIMES AND MERCIES: The Fate of German Civilians Under Allied Occupation 1944-1950 (Talon Books 2007)

Vell you know, I didn’t really vant to mention ze shoos…I’m not an animal!
In ‘my fight’ I’ve been called most names in the book, including warmonger – twice!
As a kid I was taught that: ‘Sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me.’
I just consider the source and Pffft! The demonizing labels become badges of honour!

Hey Glen… Germans are mostly nice people.. They like to drink and celebrate and fuck a lot and every once in a while they try to take on the world and pound the New World order right out of it but so far both their attempts of failed..
Just remember that history is written by the winners in the object is to legitimize themselves and demonize the losers.
Somewhere in the fabric of time if you dig to find it there is a parallel history that’s hidden from the world and that part of it is all about Germany.
And they certainly won’t teach you that in mainstream indoctrinating school systems… The information is still out there you just have to dig to find it, however it is so much easier believing what we’ve been spoonfed all our lives rather than admit we may have been lied to and we have to relearn everything.

These vacuous woman are an insult to their sex. I am ashamed of them. Heralding the UE as a model of anything to aspire to is revolting.

Catherene McKenna and Crystia Freeland….. Clueless bimbosity in the flesh. Thanks Justin, asshole of the century. You can include Wynne, Notely, and Notely,s crew of embarrassments to the chagrin of real women world wide. Please dear GOD, inform our featherweight pm, Justin the Useless, MERITOCRICY is where it is at, always has been, always will be. Best person qualified for the job gets the job. McKenna MAY be qualified for a Walmart greeter. Maybe!!!!!!

Someone ought to round up all these silly cows and chain ‘em to the nearest stove…and give ’em all a good smack once a day just for good measure…to put ’em in their place! It’s not like they’re doing anything useful.

Well, if I’m going to be demonized as a sexist or a misogynist or a whatever-o-phobe just because I’m a White, heterosexual, Christian man, them I’m going to at least get some satisfaction at doing what I’m accused of…LOL

Push-back is coming…

Liberals love the blood oil from the middle east, why would she say anything to them about how women are second rate citizens. SHE SUPPORTS THEM AND SUPPORTS WOMEN BEING BRUTILIZED BY THESE COUNTRIES. If she gave a shit she would not even be there in the first place let alone spout off on how great Islamic countries treat women. She is willfully blind and incredibly stupid.

Shebel Raj well said totally agree

I am so sick and tired of hearing about Islam and all the stuff we must do to make them semi-satisfied. If I had my way—- these fucking unappreciative monkeys would be on the next boat OUT. I don’t want to come across as not appreciating these people—— but they sure as hell do have a knack for making you hate them.
commented 2016-11-16 08:27:44 -0500
Hopefully- what you are saying is Islam USED to TRUMP everything.

It is a real shame that our Leaders are forcing us into WAR. We don’’t want War. We just want the Right to be Proud of our Country and our Culture. I guess we are going to have to die—-

Unfortunately, this seems to be the general case for feminists (at least third wave feminists, who are the power of the movement now). As Mark Steyn notes, “in the hierarchy of identity-group politics, Islam trumps everything, including race, gender and secularism.”

“I’m not surprised a low IQ bimbo is attracted to over simplified childish notions an then brands these as “feminist”. It’s as hypocritical as being a climate warrior while jetting all over the globe increasing her carbon footprint for hollow virtue posing.”

You can say that again.

The insincerity is really wearing thin. So many call themselves feminists yet have no clue to the history of the original movement. Like all past movements that actually achieved beneficial results it was changed over the years. This phony is not a feminist, none of the SJWs are feminists, they are neo-feminists and some not even that.

[History: Suffragettes – the original movement – were brave and farsighted, worked hard to obtain the right to vote, their efforts enabled women to have the right to true citizenship for women. Their victory paved the way for the full participation by women in the economic, social, and political spheres. Many of the early leaders of the women’s suffrage movement (in the U.S.) believed that the rights of mother and child are inextricably linked and that the right to life and the right to vote are rooted in the inherent dignity of each human person.]

This just shows how sheltered these liberal scum are. Some day they will have no where to hide from reality and i will just laugh.

Did she really state in public that oppression of women is due to climate change?

The woman has no sense of shame in parading her naïveté

Sheila, you give McKenna too much credit. She is not fearless, she is clueless and stupid.

These useful idiotic women never cease to amaze me…the blindly support a religion which degrades and dehumanizes women, and do the "wear a hijab’ bullshit. Faugh…

Feminist = marxist misandry

I’m not surprised a low IQ bimbo is attracted to over simplified childish notions an then brands these as “feminist”.
