I freely admit it is difficult to bare witness to such disturbing images, but I believe the human cost is far greater when silent virtue fails to bring light to darkness, justice to depravity. These women represent the forgotten faces of unspeakable cruelty and the marginalized victims of true oppression; those crimes against humanity summarily dismissed by activists who now embrace Islam as a “progressive” partner in the fight for equality. Contrary to the mainstream news, the real War on Women isn’t being waged over free birth control, the tyranny of “mansplaining” or funding abortion clinics that profit from a dissected child. Nor is it a bombastic march of hate protesting a democratic election result by wearing knitted, pink hats and parading in vagina costumes while spewing the most grotesque profanity. Rather, it’s a millenia-old campaign that turns females into disposable objects, denies millions due process, glorifies pedophilia and human servitude, and justifies the most unforgivable forms of brutality against females for the most innocuous infractions.
In a free country where feminists are now “triggered” by how a man sits or the symbolic purity of the “Virgin Mary”, it’s preposterous the so-called voices of liberation would ceremoniously dawn a hijab as a symbol of empowerment, when it literally embodies censorship, mass suffering and unyielding misogyny. Don’t be fooled by those apologists dismissing these victims as “extreme” examples of an otherwise peaceful religion. Most “Westernized” muslims are only constrained by the consequences of our laws, a minority contingent restrained by the potential backlash of armed citizens, as their growing ranks endlessly conspire to impose Sharia Law across America without hesitation or regret. Until the civilized world stands in unison and demands a global reformation of Islam, an immediate cessation of its most discriminatory and barbaric practices, nothing will change. If we are to truly defend the dignity of life and seek equality for all God’s children, there can be no refuge or political absolution for those who mock the universal necessity of human rights.
