Individually the ladies of this real-life League of Extraordinary Women have all been featured over the years here on Balladeer’s Blog. Each one of them has more courage than all of the make-believe feminists whining about “microaggressions” and “safe spaces” on college campuses across America.
These ladies face REAL danger from REAL oppressors of women.
*** WAFA SULTAN is an author and activist against Islamofascism. She writes first-hand about the barbaric and systematically demeaning treatment that women in the Muslim world are subjected to.
Wafa is one of those courageous individuals who are needed the most at this time – the kind who demand to be heard no matter how dangerous it is for them personally. In 2006 Wafa was the first woman on the Muslim propoganda channel Al Jazeera. She masterfully demolished the inept reactionary arguments of the Imam she was debating.
THIS HAUNTING IMAGE STRIKES RIGHT TO THE CORE OF THE HATRED THAT IS ISLAM.
Genital mutilation, “honor” killings, stonings, institutionalized rape, a lack of fundamental human rights and on and on it goes. Islam’s treatment of women is literal slavery and has no place in the 21st Century. Try to picture a woman you care about suffering under Islam and remember what is at stake in the struggle between the civilized world and Muslim fanatics.
Frederick Lawrence, Brandeis U’s cowardly and hypocritical president, is the perfect mascot for such a spineless institution.

Conference Affiliation: Institutions Too Cowardly To Defy Muslim Homophobia and Misogyny
Comment: Balladeer’s Blog is renaming the Brandeis University sports teams to reflect their recent gutless decision to rescind the honorary degree they were extending to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the courageous woman who defies death threats from Muslim fanatics by continuing her criticism of the religion whose oppressive nature caused her to flee two countries now.
Brandeis spinelessy claimed that after Islamist pressure group C.A.I.R. and others brought attention to Ali’s criticism of Islam’s barbaric treatment of women, including genital mutilation, Brandeis’ administration rescinded the honorary degree they were scheduled to confer upon her.

At Balladeer’s Blog I’m always open about how much contempt I feel for American liberals because they are too cowardly to subject Islam’s misogyny and homophobia to the same criticism they subject Christianity to. I’m an ardent non-believer in ANY religion and see the gutless silence of the politically correct left to be an obstacle to convincing the Muslim world into ever joining the 21st Century. ( And no, whiny liberals, I’m not a conservative. Just read around my blog and see. )
If people had been as cowardly about criticizing Christianity we’d still be living like the 1600’s Puritans or Continue reading
Why We Left Islam: Former Muslims Speak Out is a terrific book about the ordeals and the threats endured by people who left the religion of the title. I’m a non-believer in all of the world’s religions and I often find myself in conversations where people who are fine with me discussing Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism or any other belief system with clinical detachment turn gutless and groveling if I refuse to speak of Islam with reverence.
I like to mention terrific books like this one because they deserve a wider audience. The American Left is far too spineless to treat Islam with the same critical approach they use with Christianity and the American Right lacks credibility because of the Christian fanatics in their ranks. This book allows you to hear the kind of horrific first-hand accounts the left would be featuring on every news program if they involved Christian abuses.
And as for Liberal apologists for Islam don’t waste my time asking me why it’s the business of the rest of the world to care about these issues, especially regarding Islam’s treatment of women. It’s for the same reason it was the rest of the world’s business to pressure South Africa to end Apartheid. The American Left was vocal about that issue, but hey, that’s because the pro-Apartheid forces in South Africa didn’t roam the globe blowing up people, derailing trains or piloting planes into the sides of buildings. If they had you can bet the American Left’s reaction would have been to drop to their bellies and crawl like they do for Islam, all the while pretending they are Continue reading
Theo Van Gogh
November 2nd, 2004 – Dutch filmmaker Theo Van Gogh, the 47 year old great- grandnephew of the famous artist Vincent Van Gogh, was shot to death by a 26 year old Muslim named Mohammed Bouyeri. Bouyeri commited this savage act because he was outraged over Van Gogh’s film Submission, which was critical of Islam’s outdated, sexist and oppressive attitudes toward women. When Mohammed was sentenced to life in prison for his repulsive attack on Continue reading
