It’s hard to imagine anyone could be against educating college students about the dangers of radical Islam. Afterall, we know these people exist (well, everyone except Michael Moore) we know they blew up 3000 Americans and are plotting daily to do it again. There is no argument to suggest that these terrorists are of any other religion than Islam. Familiarizing oneself with the tactics of such people would seem a worthwhile endeavor. Not according to leftists, however.
In a stratagem typical of the deceitful smear campaigns the left seems to favor, an obviously fake hate flyer has been posted all over the George Washington University campus with the intention of sabotaging Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week (October 22-26), and smearing its sponsors the David Horowitz Freedom Center and the Young America’s Foundation. The flyer, which is headlined “Hate Muslims? So Do We” and masquerades as a publication by GW students now organizing Islamo Fascism Awareness Week activities, is itself a hate crime as well as a forgery. Its authors, cowering behind anonymity, are part of what has become a national movement to attack Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week.
It does not seem to matter to leftists that the term “Islamo-Fascism” was first used by Muslims in Algeria. Just the phrase alone makes leftists feel murderous towards those who use it. In an attempt to discredit the Freedom Center and the Young America’s Foundation for being anti-Muslim, the offenders simply made asses of themselves by outing their true tyrannical nature. Instead of challenging the Freedom Center to a debate, they tried to silence them. Leftists are never interested in a fair debate. They only seek to mute the opposition. The same could be said for Islamo-Fascists, only they use bombs instead of hate-literature. Maybe we should start calling our leftists, Lefto-Fascists. Yes, I like that.
Barbarah Ehrenreich took umbridge with the theme of Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week disagreeing that the left has ignored the plight of Muslim women.
Before you put on your costumes to celebrate Islamo-Fascist Awareness Week, let me set the record straight. American feminists do not condone, defend, or ignore jihadist misogyny. In fact, we were warning about it well before Washington turned against the Taliban and have been consistently appalled by the gender dictatorships of Saudi Arabia and Iran.
Which American feminists is she talking about? If you do a search on Google for “Feminist Issues” the top concerns that pop up are as follows: affirmative action, disability rights, family law, fighting the Right, global feminism, health, immigration, gender and sexuality issues, pre-teen beauty addicts, mommy issues, transsexual, intergender and transgender definitions, hormones and biology, and abortion rights. I went through more than 5 pages and didn’t find one reference to feminist issues including oppression of Islamic women. Maybe that’s why no one believes you, Barbara, when you claim to be “concerned” about Islamic women.
The “Global feminism” link on the NOW website looked promising, but reading it one could be led to believe that women in Afghanistan are abused and tortured by Buddhist monks as easily as Islamo-Fascists! There is ZERO mention of why they are forced to wear the burqa or why acid is thrown in their faces. It’s Islam, Stupid!
If there is a hell on earth for women and girls, it surely must be found in Afghanistan. Desperate poverty persists and gender-based violence is increasing. Nearly 200 schools have been bombed or set on fire and school girls have had acid thrown in their faces. Illiteracy is over 80 percent among women, and the country has one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the world. Many women are still forced to wear the total body cover of the burka and may not leave home without a male escort. There is an epidemic of suicide among young women who set themselves on fire to escape the severe repression and poverty that they face.
They’re not trying to escape poverty, they’re trying to escape Islamo-Fascism! (Unless there are other poverty-stricken populations that wrap their women up in burlap sacks and beat them with sticks that I don’t know about.) By not naming the thing that is causing this treatment of women, feminists like Barbara Ehrenreich are absolutely condoning it. Islam permits this behavior and sanctions it in the name of Sharia Law. Most feminists are scared to fight the real problem because it may make them look like “haters,” or worse, conservatives. It takes way more guts to be a conservative these days (or an honest feminist like Phyllis Chesler) when the left has done such an excellent job re-naming everything, demonizing common-sense and making up fake hate crimes to further their agendas.
But try as they might and weasel as they may, the truth will come out.
One thing is certain. When the race hustlers and “community organizers” get their tighty whitey’s in a bunch (or crackers-lackers if you’re Jesse Jackson) it’s best to dig a little deeper instead of take their stories of woe at face value. What’s terribly sad about this tactic is that it never brings people together but only deepens the divide and mistrust. The words “racist,” “sexist,” “islamaphobe,” and “homophobe” are so overused they’ve lost their meaning. Most people are good people, contrary to what the nightly news tells us. Most people don’t have deep-seeded bigotry in their hearts as the hoax-hustlers would have you believe.
The very fact they have to fake their way onto the national stage proves it.
