One agency now eligible for U.S. funds is the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), which had a delegate say some … interesting … things about traditional-family breakdown at a colloquium last month in (coincidentally) Mexico City.

According to LifeSiteNews, UNFPA representative Arie Hoekman “denounced the idea that high rates of divorce and out-of-wedlock births represent a social crisis, claiming that they represent instead the triumph of ‘human rights’ against ‘patriarchy.’”

“‘In the eyes of conservative forces, these changes mean that the family is in crisis,’ he said. ‘In crisis? More than a crisis, we are in the presence of a weakening of the patriarchal structure, as a result of the disappearance of the economic base that sustains it and because of the rise of new values centered in the recognition of fundamental human rights,’” LifeSite reported.

No fair

Another Democratic senator not only came out in favor of reinstating the Fairness Doctrine, WorldNetDaily reports, but said she expected it to happen this year.

In an interview with Bill Press, Sen. Debbie Stabenow, Michigan Democrat, not only said she favored re-regulation of the broadcast airwaves but “I have already had some discussions with colleagues and, you know, I feel like that’s gonna happen. Yep.

“I absolutely think it’s time to be bringing accountability to the airwaves. I mean, our new president has talked rightly about accountability and transparency. You know, that we all have to step up and be responsible. And, I think in this case, there needs to be some accountability and standards put in place,” Mrs. Stabenow said.

“Rizzuto” at Conservative Punk chimed in: “Conflict of interest Debbie?”

“As it turns out, Stabenow’s husband Tom Athans … is the co-founder of Democracy Radio, which produced left-wing talker Ed Schultz. After a stint as executive vice president of Air America, which filed for bankruptcy in ‘06, [Athans] founded TalkUSA Radio, a liberal talk-radio network,” he wrote.

We assume that Little Miss Attila has her tongue in cheek … otherwise she’d have an odd notion of a “superhero.”

“What’s better than a graphic novel? A graphic memoir, of course,” she writes at her eponymous site (www.littlemissattila .com).

“But the subject would have to be suitably stirring to warrant the treatment usually accorded superheroes. You’d want a real-life hero: someone like William Ayers.

“William Ayers? Of course,” Little Miss Attila writes before quoting a Publishers Weekly account of the deal that refers to the New Superhero as “the same figure dragooned into the 2008 presidential race in a controversial attempt to use his background in radical politics and a minor acquaintance with Barack Obama to undermine Obama’s presidential run.”
