Barbados Human Rights Policy at the UN: Stay silent as despots violate basic human rights – because they might give us money.

Barbados voted for child execution

Barbados Supports Child Execution

The headline is for true folks.

Previously we told you about our country’s votes at the UN to preserve the death penalty for children and our refusal to censure Iran for torture, floggings, amputations, discrimination & violence against Iranian women.

Nope, it doesn’t sound pretty – but that’s the simple truth. Check it out at other sources if you don’t believe us.

You see, Barbados doesn’t believe in voting for any human rights resolution that is “country specific”. While North Korea drives bulldozers over people as a method of execution, and while China kidnaps pregnant women off the streets, holds them down and aborts their babies, and while Iran executes 16 year old girls for having sex (the man only got whipped because unlawful sex is always a woman’s fault in Iran)…

… our representative at the United Nations says “No problem here”. It was explained it to the press this way:

“Based on its principles and its consistent position, Barbados would abstain from all country-specific resolutions. But its position should not be misconstrued as inattention to human rights issues. It was gravely concerned by patterns of abuse and urged all States to engage constructively in addressing such issues.”

You can read the entire report yourself and then decide whether or not our country should be empowering despots. While you’re at it, see if you can figure out exactly what “principles” Barbados seems to be upholding.

Reported: Barbados Ambassador Rihanna says “quite normal” in Barbados for women to be naked in front of strange men

CONTROVERSY: Bravo Magazine is sticking to its story that Rihanna’s interview was reported fair and square. As much as we can make out, the editor claims the interview was recorded with her knowledge. Others say that “sources close” to Rihanna state that the interview was not fairly reported.

Nothing official released by Rihanna’s publicists though. That will be the real test unless the recordings show up for all to hear.

The “Russian Roulette” singer admits: “To be honest, I’m even hotter at home, because I’m always naked there. I’m from Barbados, that’s quite normal there. My pool boy saw me naked five times already.”

…Barbados Ambassador for Culture & Youth allegedly explains to the world media how we do things here in Bim

Mr. Prime Minister: If Rihanna did say these things, it’s about time for the annual review of all “ambassador” appointments, don’t you think?
