Except that the US doesn't imprison or execute gay people anymore or subjugate women the way governments in that region do. The US isn't in the same category as the brutal theocracies of the world. At least not yet, anyway.

From a rights standpoint, I guess you're mainly correct.

When it comes to overall bad shit done in recent times, they're so much worse to the point where a comparison seems ridiculous. The US was just an example, it's mainly weird how people choose to call put human rights violations but not mass murder and war crimes.

The is is certainly a theocracy itself though, to a certain extent
