Sweden’s feminist foreign minister has dared to tell the truth about Saudi Arabia. Oh no! Bad idea.

Margot Wallström’s principled stand deserves wide support. Betrayal seems more likely.
She dared to denounced the subjugation of women in Saudi Arabia. As the theocratic kingdom prevents women from travelling, conducting official business or marrying without the permission of male guardians, and as girls can be forced into child marriages where they are effectively raped by old men.
 Saudi Arabia withdrew its ambassador and stopped issuing visas to Swedish businessmen. The United Arab Emirates joined it. The Organisation of Islamic Co-operation, which represents 56 Muslim-majority states, accused Sweden of failing to respect the world’s ‘rich and varied ethical standards’ — standards so rich and varied, apparently, they include the flogging of bloggers and encouragement of paedophiles. Meanwhile, the Gulf Co-operation Council condemned her ‘unaccept-able interference in the internal affairs of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’, and I wouldn’t bet against anti-Swedish riots following soon.
 Outside Sweden, the western media has barely covered the story, and Sweden’s EU allies have shown no inclination whatsoever to support her. A small Scandinavian nation faces sanctions, accusations of Islamophobia and maybe worse to come, and everyone stays silent.
 Her criticism was not just rhetorical. She said that it was unethical for Sweden to continue with its military co-operation agreement with Saudi Arabia. In other words, she threatened Swedish arms companies’ ability to make money. Saudi Arabia’s denial of business visas to Swedes threatened to hurt other companies’ profits too. You might think of Swedes as upright social democrats, who have never let worries of appearing tedious stand in the way of their righteousness. But that has never been wholly true, and is certainly not true when there is money at stake.
Sweden is the world’s 12th largest arms exporter — quite an achievement for a country of just nine million people. Its exports to Saudi Arabia total $1.3 billion. Business leaders and civil servants are also aware that other Muslim-majority countries may follow Saudi Arabia’s lead.

 You can read the rest of the article and see why she is in trouble or irrelevant. She just found out, feminism is only a fad, a make believe, to be used for political purposes by those with the real power. She just realized that feminism is allowed to exist as long as it does not impede those behind any government, money and profits. Especially the weapon industry.
I am the last one to defend feminists, specially in Sweden, but reality in this case just bit this one in the ass.
Even the European union is not coming to her defense.

Anyway, we all have women in our lives, we want them to be what they wish to be, not according to feminist ideology but their own.
The gulf states and specially saudi arabia is not what we want for our daughters. That said, many of us have written about feminists lack of values and that they exist only to advance themselves and usually for financial gains.
Even close by, the local hags have done nothing to advance anyone's rights, here or in other countries, they only bitch about things that don't really exists on our side of the pond, like "all me rapists, and we beat our women as if it's a sport". Their latest try at getting attention was either a slut walk, which no one wanted to participate in and had to cancel it, or transvestites.
So far they have tried to promote themselves as important (in their own minds) by supporting small micro issues, which are usually contrary to the majority. Not one word about the real problems women face in "our allies" own backyard.
That's why we give a cookie to the feminist foreign minister of Sweden, at least she dared to point out the facts, unfortunately, she did not realize that money is what drive western society, and feminism is just "their tool" until it obstructs their profits, then it's a problem that needs to be snuffed out.
So, HA!, told you so.

When it comes to human rights, rights of children, rights of the family, rights of parents, so on, it has to be fought by "people' not useless organizations like feminism and their manginas, the last time I checked people means men and women, one without the other, achieves absolutely...nothing.
Canada sells military equipment to the saudis, will the feminist hero dare to stop it now that he was elected? Let me answer that one...NO.
If he tries he's out.
