International Women of Courage Award

Email Print

An Egyptian woman who was supposed to be given the International Women of Courage award by Secretary of State John Kerry and first lady Michelle Obama on Friday will not be getting it because of anti-American and anti-Semitic comments discovered on her Twitter account. My question as a libertarian is this: Why is the U.S. government giving out awards for this or anything else? But even if I were just a constitutionalist, I would still ask the same question. So why aren’t Republicans asking it?
