The Mainstream Media is charmed to death by the Kuwaitis.
You see, they’ve finally allowed women to vote in Kuwait. Sort of. Women were allowed to vote, yesterday, for the first time, but in municipal elections only.
Women still can’t be candidates, can’t go out without covering up almost completely (hijab and all), and they can’t be the Emir of Kuwait.
And that’s the thing. Kuwaitis, female OR male really can’t vote for the dictator leader of their country. Kuwait is an Islamic monarchy, run by the Al-Sabah royal family.
So, can someone please tell that to the ignorant media and HOprah (who, on her daily brain-addling talk show, called Kuwait, “the only democracy in the Middle East”; Hello, Oprah . . . that’s Israel’s description, girlfriend). Kuwait ain’t a democracy, people.
