How to Handle a Woman ... Mark Steyn
Steyn Online ^ | 22 May 2014 | Mark Steyn

Posted on 05/24/2014 4:29:47 AM PDT by Rummyfan

THE WAR ON WOMEN ...in New York:

An elderly Pakistani immigrant beat his wife to death with a stick after the doomed woman made the mistake of cooking him lentils for dinner instead of the hearty meal of goat meat that he craved, according to court papers.

Noor Hussein, 75, was so outraged over the prospect of eating the vegetarian fare that he pummeled his wife, Nazar Hussein, 66, inside their Brooklyn apartment until she was a "bloody mess," prosecutors said in opening statements of his murder trial Wednesday.

Mr Hussein used "a stick that the family had found in the street and used to stir their laundry in a washtub". So, aside from a new wife, the poor guy now has to get a new laundry stick. His attorney says we need to be more culturally sensitive:

"He comes from a culture where he thinks this is appropriate conduct, where he can hit his wife," Clark said in her opening statements at the Brooklyn Supreme Court bench trial. "He culturally believed he had the right to hit his wife and discipline his wife."

Sometimes I think we’re headed to a new Dark Ages. Or that we only fleetingly left the previous one.

The real crime here is that this subhuman was ever let into this country at all. I don’t care if he did it legally or not. He should have been rejected at the outset.

I know that if my wife ever cooked me a meal of lentils when I had a cravin’ for goat meat, my first inclination would be to grab a laundry stick (?) and beat her bloody. I mean, there’s just so much a man can be expected to put up with, right? A homicide would likely ensue.

Our new Dark Ages is being spread globally by Islamists, as they steadily infect all cultures on Earth. One of the more prominent Islamists is Barak Obama.

There's never, never, never, EVER an excuse or reason to hit a woman. Ever. Except for one.

If she's riding in the car with you, and she's stepping on an imaginary brake while you drive, all bets are OFF.

On a serious note, the term "rule of thumb" comes from the English common law where it was legal to beat your wife, as long as the stick wasn't any thicker than your thumb.

And, for the record, I feel about wife beaters the same way that Sonny Corleone did when he caught his brother in law beating his sister.

They had a woman Muslim lecturer in my old hometown. Someone asked her about the stoning and beating. She explained that those were their laws and said nothing about the laws being unreasonable...or something they wanted to change. The laws didn’t seem to bother her a bit. Talk about sheep.........

We really don’t want to be around this vile goat humping culture. Why do these foreign muslims want to be around us? Their culture is so backwards even they want to get away from it.

“Tolerance” to the left means acceptance of subhuman culture.

No, his attorney is basically arguing that his client's open contempt for the law is an excuse.

Self defense? That isn't an excuse. It's a legally accepted reason.

Not funny.

Hoax.

What about women who abuse their husbands, then use an openly rigged familiy court system to get away with it.

As deranged as that might sound to you, that is one of the cultures replacing Western Civilization. They can look at how they live and watch it spread, while Westerners pat themselves on the back about their gender equality while they recede into history. I was equally disturbed in a conversation with a Red Chinese woman living here who had no problem with the one-child policy...

If this ever should occur please ask your wife to let all of us on FR know where your funeral is being held.

The lawyer’s opening statement about “cultural context” is sickening, along with the fact that no MSM reports that I’ve seen on this incident bother to mention that the man was a Muslim.

If he were a devout Catholic or a Baptist you can be sure that’s all they would be talking about.

“My wife is a better shot with her handgun than I am with mine.”

Remember when we were maintaining the charade that we had replaced Saddam’s secular government in Iraq with another one, and the news showed the new Iraqi “policewomen”? They were disarmed by their government within days (and that barely made the news here in the same media that had trumpeted their formation).

Boy,there sure are some insensitive folks here. I guess they haven't got the memo from the PC POlice yet.
We all have to be more sensitive to those Wacky Muzzies that are culturally still living in the Dark Ages. Just as we have learned to be with others that are still in the Stone Ages.
We all have to try to "just get along". Dontcha know?

I guess it takes all kinds to make up the human race, but I can’t even imagine why a man sticks around a woman who abuses him, but I see it all the time, albeit verbal abuse. He should walk away. Don’t give her the time of day.

Because he is financially ruined if he doesn’t (the only cases I’ve seen are married couples with children).

Interesting. In the Holy Quran it states the same thing.

I wonder if anyone has measured the laundry stick and the muslim perp's thumb?

I like playing the libs’ “tolerance game” with these stories; someone will mention the story and get all judgmental on the perp, and I’ll tell them to respect the guy’s culture...

NJ is rapidly filling with immigrants raised outside of a Judeo-Christian culture, and they are meeting younger Americans that have been raised outside of it as well...

If a woman comes from a culture where she can walk down the street wearing a bikini while eating bacon she should be able to do so in Mecca, right? After all, those Saudis ought to be culturally sensitive!

The left is “winning” the battle of the Culture Wars. One might arguably call it the struggle for the soul of this nation. We are losing.

The left would suggest that the right, regarding itself as faithful, (and drawing it’s moral authority from that faith) are the cultural “soul-mates” with the likes of Mr. Hussein. Yet it is the left, deliberately choosing to defy the euphemistic law of gravity with the imposition of the morally rudderless Moral Relativism, that allows the Hussein’s of this world to persist.

If you’ve ever argued with a leftist you’ve witnessed the phenomena of hair-splitting. They indulge in it like no others. They insist, “We must respect, nay, celebrate multiculturalism” and then rationalize away outrageous behavior with, “He comes from a culture where he thinks this is appropriate conduct, where he can hit his wife”.

Right is right and wrong is wrong, except to a leftist. That is because Liberalism is a mental disorder.

To me, the really, really disgusting thing about this was that the American defense attorney (a woman, and city paid, I imagine) actually said in his defense that it was ok in “his culture” to “discipline” your wife that way. “Discipline” your wife? And something is OK because you come from a stinking armpit of the world that subscribes to an insane death cult so therefore you can do whatever you want?

At the rate things are going there will be licensed female-gential-mutilation practitioners in European hospitals in 10 years. How I wish I was a crazy extremist spouting nonsense.

This is the kind of thing that used to be screened back when I brought my wife home in 1976 and we went through a myriad of troublesome hoops to please the bureaucrats.

Untold requirements that don’t exist save the answer to three basic questions” “Is this person from a 3rd world shithole?,” “is this person non-white,” and “is it likely he/she will be a Democrat voter?”
