Shut.It.Down – this time, the United Nations

This is the most recent drivel from that socialist heading up the United Nations, Antonio Guetteres.

The COVID-19 pandemic is demonstrating what we all know: millennia of patriarchy have resulted in a male-dominated world with a male-dominated culture which damages everyone – women, men, girls and boys.

And to add to this insult – men, it’s all your fault – he tweets the following codswallop.

This is the time to rebuild a more equal, inclusive, and resilient society.

Yes, there is only solution for the United Nations: Shut. It. Down.

    How much evidence do we need to withdraw from all things UN?

    Is Guetteres male?

    Resign then, imbecile. Show us how it’s done.

    Oh. Not you. You’re different.

    Bureaucrats and government minions think the solution to all the worlds ills is more bureaucracy and government.

    We should be glad he is not in a knitting circle – we would all have to wear wool mittens to eat boiled crocheted parsnips with double-stitched utensils.

    The Vatican said much the same thing.

    They’ve set up a commission for a post-covid world.

    Never let a crisis go to waste, eh?

    millennia of patriarchy

    … has resulted in us leaving the cave and building civilisations around the world that have created the great wealth needed to fund the toxic woke organisation known as the UN.

    The UN (AKA global socialists) needs to be shut down.

  6. ExIronCurtain

    No need to shut it down, just withdraw Australia from it.
    And STOP PAYING UP to these tin-pot dictators and imbeciles.
    Australia, stop throwing away money !

    ABC RN were parroting this pandemic is anti female meme this morning. They said industries hit hardest were female dominated, ie hospitality. Their solution, girls need to learn a trade and become tradies. Seems the virus is a Rorschach Test and people see whatever they want. Mindyou the ABC see anti female in everything.

    Guetteres looks like a toad impersonating a human being.

    Never mind the fact that apparently more males are killed by the virus than female.
    But when did the left get facts in the way of a good story?

    They said industries hit hardest were female dominated, ie hospitality.

    If that is the case, then why is the left, almost without exception, praising Dictator Dan for closing the industry down and the lockdown generally?

    “…millennia of patriarchy have resulted in…”

    … in the west at least:
    * the outlawing of slavery
    * equality before the law, regardless of race, colour, creed, religion, sex, sexual preference…
    * massive increase in wealth and health
    * massive reduction in environmental damage, including pollution
    * massive increase in parks and other public places, including nature reserves and so on

    Is it perfect? No, not even close.
    Is it better? In almost every way we can and do measure, it is a better world compared to even 70 years ago (“killer smog” in London, Tokyo, LA etc etc don’t happen any more, eg)
    Even over the last 20 years, we’ve seen those living in poverty reduced to a tiny fraction of the number that used to exist – 100 years ago 80% of the world was in poverty, today it is well under 15% (IIRC, under 10%, and closer to under 5%, but anyway) and most of that has happened since 1980.

    “Never mind the fact that apparently more males are killed by the virus than female.”

    They are still chasing equality of outcomes – morons.

    Ask them when they intend to address the significant difference in outcomes between men and women for:

    Teaching: heavily female dominated
    Nursing and other health care: heavily female dominated
    Academia: female dominated
    Gaol: most inmates are male
    Hard physical work (like bricklayers etc): dominated by men
    Outdoor work: dominated by men
    Suicide: male dominated

    We need to ensure “equity” in these areas too – we can’t discriminate, can we?

    “Make them live up to their own standards”.

  14. Bronson

    I love it, an over weight white male telling the world that the patriarchy is the source of all the world troubles. Obviously Fatguts and the UN don’t do irony.
    Also I’m with Grunter until the micks have female priests and elect a female pope maybe they should STFU.

    Its all very simple the solution to socialist fascist globalism is to remove all taxpayers money from them ,dont give them one cent they will soon perish . You dont really think the corrupt fascist Schwartz (Soros ) is going to give all his ill gotten money to them do you ? He and his fellow leftist billionaires dont flog dead horses .
    No Taxpayer money =No Socialism end of story .
    Q. How long would the Andrews gang last without Federal money to pay their Stasi ,public employee voters and themselves ?

  23. Rex Mango

    Nick, I’ve provided you with a taste of UN political and intellectual discourse here, and I sincerely apologize. At least it’s better than actually being at the UN in person, the way I was. The place is a dump. The UN headquarters complex was completed in 1952 in the Hanna-Barbera Jetsons style of modern, which is now back in vogue -but with light, with color, with irony. At the UN it’s with linoleum. There are acres of gray linoleum that seem to have been given a light mopping, once a month, by the same cleaning lady for the past forty-eight years. The Secretariat Building smells of old food. The pole lamps take themselves very seriously.
    The chief architect was Wallace K. Harrison, who also designed Rockefeller Center but apparently wasn’t feeling so well during the three or four hours it must have taken him to dash off the UN blueprints. Wallace had additional input from Oscar Niemeyer, creator of dreadful Brasilia, and Le Corbusier, who led a lifelong campaign to make the whole world as pretty and comfortable as O’Hare Airport.
    Use of bilingual signage in English and French gives the corridors of the UN a sadly Canadian air. One widely posted warning reads, SMOKING DISCOURAGED/VEUILLEZ EVITER DE FUMER, and that says it all about the United Nations, its power and its might.

    Although I would be happy enough to see everyone at the United Nations fired and sent to work productive jobs elsewhere … if they want to make a start by only firing all the men, that’s still an excellent step in the right direction.

    Heck, start small, fire Antonio Guetteres and hire a woman to do his job … I hear they only cost 82% as much or some such statistic … which is a small saving but better than nothing.

    Antonio Guetteres

    Guterres served as secretary-general of the Socialist Party from 1992 to 2002. He was elected prime minister of Portugal in 1995 and resigned in 2002 after the Socialist Party was defeated in the 2001 Portuguese local elections. After six years governing without an absolute majority and with a bad economy, the Socialist Party did worse than expected because of losses in Lisbon and Porto, where polls showed it with a solid lead. Eduardo Ferro Rodrigues assumed the Socialist Party leadership, but the general election was lost to the Social Democratic Party, led by José Manuel Barroso.

    Guterres served as president of the Socialist International from 1999 to 2005.
    …..
    The United Nations Secretary-General’s salary, which has not changed since 1997, is set at $227,253. The amount is determined by the General Assembly.

    And an endless opportunity for graft, all tax free.

  26. These people are not morons nor are they delusional or ill informed. They know exactly what they are doing.
    Marxism divided societies along economic class lines. This worked fairly well until the middle class in the West grew and grew very quickly after WW2. They couldn’t succeed when vast swaths of people were moving up the class ladder.

    In the post modern era, these Marxists are trying something different to divide us. Out with economic class, in with the oppressed vs oppressor. Intersectionalism.
    Now they have limitless ways to divide people. Men against women, coloured against white, old against young, alphabet people against straight people and on and on.

    They will succeed because they have captured all of the institutions. Even defense departments have been captured.
    If you’ve got young kids or grand kids, pray for them.

    Look on the bright side.

    At least it’s not a fat little toad saying:”Look, fair suck of the sauce bottle, programmatically specific cisheteropatriarchy is the greatest moral challenge of our time…

    The UN ceased serving any useful purpose (if it ever actually did) many decades ago.

    In 1945, when the Marxist-Leninists got a Veto seat on the Security Council, which enabled them to continue the war against the West.

    The only bodies we need to keep are the technical co-ordination ones which pre-dated the UNO:

    Meteorological (although climate change is a woke infection I guess)
    ITU
    ICAO

    Are there any others?

    I don’t think the rest are more than sinecures for retired megalomaniacs (UNESCO) and workplaces for SJWs.

    Yeah, but nobody knew she was female. She had to wrap herself up everyday to look like a man. Sorry Chris, doesn’t count 🙂

    The UN people on the ground are interesting. Bascially two types, the third world Nepalese or Nigerian who has an excellent paid job and is very interested in keeping it and the first world German/ Canadian who will save the w0rld, the environment, carbon, dah dee dah. Quite a mix.

  37. Rex Mango

    The female pope is a myth. This from Wikipedia:

    It has also been noted that enemies of the papacy in the 9th century make no mention of a female pope. For example, Photios I of Constantinople, who became Patriarch in 858 and was deposed by Pope Nicholas I in 863, was an enemy of the pope. He vehemently asserted his own authority as patriarch over that of the pope in Rome, and would have made the most of any scandal of that time regarding the papacy; but he never mentions the story once in any of his voluminous writings. Indeed, at one point he mentions “Leo and Benedict, successively great priests of the Roman Church”.[30]

    ‘The female pope is a myth’

    Good point. Probably just someone that looked like Leonardo DiCaprio.

    “….millennia of patriarchy have resulted in a male-dominated world with a male-dominated culture…”

    Yes, male bat-eaters are a threat to humanity – so are totalitarian male a-holes who allow a pandemic to spread beyond their national borders and then strip other countries of personal protective equipment.

  40. Catcalling Inebriate

    There is a solid argument to shut everything UN in New York and then work through FAO and other comfort benches. Eventually you’d be left with some decent field expertise and some functioning emergency facilities.
