Last weekend Washington DC was invaded by a gaggle of prosperous women and a few male stooges. Taking part in a mass cult gathering of virtue signalling, which they called the Women’s March, these protesters screamed to subvert democracy. Not only did these feminist useful idiots protest the democratic election of Donald Trump but they also paid homage to Islamic fundamentalism.
The socialist billionaire George Soros is suspected of contributing to this March. The New York Times lists the relevant organisations and political charities associated with Soros. Almost every anti-democratic and left-wing cause currently afflicting our world has been bankrolled by him. Soros is the enemy of enlightened Western civilisation and a whole bunch of stupid women have just done his dirty work for him.
And dirty work it was too. Vile language, disgusting insults against Ivanka Trump – a religious Jew – and cruel mockery of Melania Trump were sanctimoniously delivered by a rabble of dubious characters. The national co-chair of the March is Linda Sarsour. Her divisive political posturing was made apparent in her speech in front of the adoring crowd. Sarsour’s screeching about her Palestinian grandmother serves no purpose other than to show how this March is another offspring of the obscene and unholy marriage between the Left and Islamic fundamentalism.
Sarsour certainly has form. Bloggers Israeli Cool and Elder of Ziyon have some very enlightening facts on her connection to Hamas and advocacy of Sharia law. I wonder how my fellow Jewish women who participated feel about being foot soldiers for the terrorists who cast shadows over us all.
I also find it strange that the hijab, a symbol of female oppression, is worn by a woman screaming for equality. The very fact Sarsour is in a powerful position, and free to choose to wear her oppressive head covering while protesting a democratic vote, demonstrates that she is not as persecuted as she likes to think she is. The hijab, which is cultural but not religious in origin, was literally worshipped as a sacred object by the marchers. A man was photographed happily donning one at a protest march supposedly about women’s rights and equality. Surely this is Stockholm Syndrome at its starkest.
Western ethos encourages women to throw off symbols of real patriarchal oppression, not embrace them. Muslim women around the world are forced to wear the hijab and some are murdered if they reject it. Feminists should be rejoicing in their freedom in the West and not promoting the hijab as a twisted symbol of female emancipation. But they are too caught up in the Left’s bizarre love-in with regressive Islamism, and their hatred for the West, to do anything sensible.
Another speaker at the March, Ieasha Prime, is a member of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and spends her time, as part of the ludicrous Hijab Day, persuading young girls to wear Islamic dress. Why was Prime speaking at the March other than to promote CAIR’s Islamist agenda? CAIR is anti-Israel and has suspected links to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, under whose leadership in Gaza honour killing is a norm.
The inclusive dogma claimed by the organisers was negated by their unceremonious removal of pro-lifers New Wave Feminism as partners for the March. Although they were happy enough for pro-life CAIR worker, Zahra Billoo, to take part. This cosseting of sexist Islamist propaganda is outrageous and encapsulates the left-wing feminist deference to Islamic fundamentalism which permeated this March.
These Islamist supporting harridans have forgotten what real persecution is. At the same time the March was taking place, a truly oppressed woman was sentenced to five years in prison, in Iran, on false charges. Where was the protest for this ‘sister’? Perhaps the plight of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliff, caught up in a dystopian nightmare in a misogynist Middle Eastern country, does not interest these feminists.
Where were the placards protesting the plethora of rapists in Sweden, the kidnapped Christian girls of Nigeria and the ultimate form of misogyny practised by Islamic fundamentalists – female genital mutilation. Where were earnest shout-outs for Yazidi slaves held by those monsters Isis and for abused female domestic workers in Islamic countries? Perhaps Sarsour, instead of ranting about Palestine and subverting the democratic process, should remind her ‘brothers and sisters’ in the Gulf States to treat their domestic workers with dignity and humanity.
But Sarsour and Prime weren’t the only hypocrites. A whole swath of celebrities, desperate to show off their virtue signalling, shouted absurdities to the admiring mob. There is sometime distasteful about Ashley Judd’s hysterical protests against hate speech while simultaneously accusing Trump of being Hitler. Barack Obama’s punishing policies on Israel, and his pandering to Islamists everywhere, is more akin to Hitler than Trump’s pro-Israel and philo-Semite approach. Judd’s diatribes are also an insult to Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, whose grandparents are Holocaust survivors.
Judd’s whining about tampon tax is likewise devoid of virtue and reeks of spoilt narcissism. She neglects to mention the Zimbabwean women who are forced to use cow dung during their periods – thanks to the poverty inflicted by the Marxist regime of Robert Mugabe. Like Judd, Madonna made a fool of herself when she ranted about blowing up the White House . Someone should tell Madonna that it is not very loving to want to murder the hundreds of men and women – of all races and religions – who work there.
But these spittle-flecked, hate-filled women do not care about their collective hypocrisy and obtuseness. Their attempt to subvert a democratic vote and superimpose a regressive ideology onto the rest of us is disgraceful. The Women’s March on Washington, and in other parts of the world, has nothing to do with those who are truly oppressed or suffering. These nasty women put on a horrifying show of hatred and intolerance to satiate their own egotistical agendas. They should be exposed for the treacherous useful idiots that they really are.
