    I'm not entirely sure. He doesn't seem to grasp the consequences that his act may have on his children. If you're both a public persona and a father, you may want to make sure you're a good role model. If Jones' public speaking would only consist of aggressive rants, that's one thing. But the man has appeared shirtless on widely clicked YouTube videos, he's been on national TV insulting interviewers and the like. You could argue it's all an act and he did all this in calculation, but if the man publicly portrays himself as insane, you wonder what kind of lessons he teaches his children with that.

    The same lessons an actor/performance-artist teaches their children?

    Real actors/performance artists still make sure the public knows the difference. Alex Jones publicly insists he isn't an actor. So whether he is or not doesn't matter, because he doesn't want the public to know the difference.

    It actually appears to be true. Unbelievable.
    The commission is responsible for “promoting women’s rights, documenting the reality of women’s lives throughout the world, and shaping global standards on gender equality and the empowerment of women," according to the UN. :nuts2:

    Saudi Arabia is also on the human rights' committee.

    This has been debated in Norway too. The Saudi ambassador to Norway commented that "it's not Norway's problem that Saudi women aren't allowed to drive" and also sais Saudi women are spoilt. Moron.

    Luckily the UN is pretty meaningless ... and this goes to show how much.

    I don't think you get it. Since it doesn't have any power at all, it's better to have a shit state like this on board. Then they need to talk about it. Bear in mind that they can only talk and publish results.
