THIS HAUNTING IMAGE STRIKES RIGHT TO THE CORE OF THE HATRED THAT IS ISLAM.
Courageous Muslim women like Asra Q Nomani and Hala Arafa wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post denouncing the condescending and wrong-headed attempts of American Liberal women to defend the demeaning clothing that Muslim men force Muslim women to wear.
They called on the Liberal women to instead join them in denouncing Islam’s sexism and its oppression of women. Don’t hold your breath, ladies. American Liberals are FAR too gutless and hypocritical to criticize Islam like they do Christianity and Judaism.
UNTIL SUCH TIME AS ALL MUSLIM WOMEN ARE FREE TO MAKE THEIR OWN CHOICE ON THE MATTER, IT IS IRRELEVANT HOW MANY MUSLIM “STEPFORD WIVES” COME FORWARD TO PRETEND MUSLIM WOMEN WEAR THOSE OUTFITS WILLINGLY.
I’m not just pro-choice on abortion – I’m pro-choice on the clothing issue, too. American Liberals are too hypocritical for that. FOR THE LADIES’ OP-ED: Continue reading
Spineless hypocrites often try to defend the way Muslim men force Muslim women to dress in demeaning body bags. Those hypocrites even try to pretend that Muslim women are “happy to be wearing them.”
THAT PUTS THOSE HYPOCRITES IN THE SAME HISTORICAL CATEGORY AS DEFENDERS OF SLAVERY IN THE 1800’s WHO USED TO INSIST THAT AFRICAN- AMERICANS WERE HAPPY TO BE SLAVES, OTHERWISE WHY WOULD THEY BE SINGING IN THE COTTON FIELDS.
Until such time as ALL Muslim women can make their own CHOICE on the matter it is irrelevant how many Muslim “Stepford Wives” come forward to pretend they wear those outfits willingly.
I’m not just pro-choice on abortion – I’m pro-choice on the clothing issue, too. Continue reading
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.
Wouldn’t it be great if American feminists developed the backbone to speak out about Muslim Apartheid?
Recently FEMEN, a feminist group very active in Europe, once again proved more courageous than most feminists in America by protesting at a Muslim cleric conference in Pontoise, France. The protestors entered disguised in the repulsive head-to- toe garments that Muslim men force women to wear.
When the Muslim “holy men” were discussing the Koran’s blessing on beating women the swashbuckling activists ran onstage and removed the outfits, revealing their naked bodies with feminist slogans written on them.
“Personne ne me soumet” (“No one subjugates me”) and “Je suis mon proper prophete” (“I am my own prophet”) were two of the slogans. FEMEN has earned an international reputation as one of the painfully few feminist organizations courageous enough to tackle Islam’s oppression of women.
Here in the United States those FEMEN slogans would have been deemed “hate speech” and banned for being “offensive to Muslims.” To our spineless media and politicians everyone has to be inclusive … except for the privileged Muslims.
FEMEN’s inspiring statement denouncing Muslim Apartheid went far beyond the mushy politically correct gibberish spouted by the hypocritical cowards of what masquerades as western liberalism in the 21st Century. Here is FEMEN’s statement in full: Continue reading
A SYMBOL OF HATRED AND SLAVERY
ISIS in Iraq has taken a momentary break from beheading people and labeling Christian homes with an “N” for Nazarene to resume their demented faith’s typical misogyny. The superstitious savages ordered the genital mutilation of all females 11 to 46 years of age. Meanwhile, spoiled and brainless Americans like Sandra Fluke continue to disgust the world by remaining silent about this. If I contacted the shallow and clueless Sandra for a comment I imagine she might say something like “Well at least those women aren’t being told they have to pay for their own birth control. Now THAT would constitute a War on Women, dammit! Heroic women like me suffer much more every day than any women who live in the Muslim world!” Continue reading
A SYMBOL OF HATRED AND SLAVERY
In a world where practicioners of the most barbaric, homophobic and misogynistic religion in the world – Islam – have the repulsive audacity to snivel and whine about alleged “oppression” whenever their outdated, blood-soaked faith is criticized we continue to see how non-Muslims are treated under Shariah law in the Muslim world.
The world has long been aware of Ibraham’s plight – she has been sentenced to death for marrying a non-Muslim American man and for refusing to recant her new-found religion and return to Islam. The Obama administration can’t figure out how demanding the release of an American’s wife can help them woo the votes of illegal immigrants so they have done NOTHING for this woman, her husband or her 20- month old child who has been suffering in a jail cell with his mother for months now.
The Muslim savages in Sudan had the unfortunate woman give birth in prison and now plan to carry out the death sentence – after giving her 100 lashes for marrying out of Islam. Meriam told her family she would rather die than return to Islam – and what civilized person WOULDN’T prefer to die than spend one day trapped in that nightmarish excuse for a religion?
What say from now on we all agree to spit in the face of the next whiny apologist for Islam we encounter? And Muslims who PRETEND they are suffering “oppression” here in the Western Democracies can go back to these wonderful, enlightened Muslim countries like Sudan if hearing their faith criticized is such a trial for them.

Why We Left Islam
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 Continue reading
