Feminism – The Gulf between Persia and the West

Although the majority of major news networks are barely covering it, (apparently there’s a big white truck blocking CNNs view) there is an uprising happening in Iran. Women are beginning to take off their hijabs and protest the Islamic dictatorship that is choking the very freedom from it’s people; particularly its women.

You look at what is happening in Iran; from Honour Killings to the fact that women’s testimony is worth only half that of a man’s, and you quickly come to realise that women are in desperate need of support to enable them to break free from the oppressive Government. The very things that modern Feminists in the West claim to stand for are being trampled on by Iran’s leaders, causing untold suffering to it’s women.

Yet, as the brave protestors in Iran are rising up and fighting back, the proud and strong Feminists of the West who have been fighting their own “oppression” and “torment” are silent. In fact, the only people I hear in support of these women are the very people Feminists claim to be Sexist, misogynistic, homophobic….you know the drill.

As soon as I learnt of the Uprising, I immediately knew that the Western Feminists would clam up. And here’s why:

THERE’S NOT A DAMN THING THE WOMEN OF IRAN CAN LEARN FROM THEM

The “problems” that Women in the West face are little more than a joke when you compare them with women in Iran or any country that even entertains Sharia for that matter.

Women in the West don’t have to do what a man tells them.

Women in the West don’t have to cover their heads or dress modestly.

Women in the West don’t have half the testimony of that of a man.

Women in the West are free to leave the Country without a man’s permission.

Women in the West can do anything they bloody-well please, whenever they please.

 

Western Feminists want “equality between the sexes”; the ability to be on a level playing-field with men.

Listen up Western ladies – you already have it.

It’s the rest of the world who don’t.

“But muh wage-gap!” I hear you cry.

It’s been debunked more times than the Flat-Earth Society.

So I’m going to ask all Feminists to stand with me and send your support to the Women of Iran and the rest of the Sharia-led world who are facing the kind of torment and suffering that you claim to suffer from.

Linda Sarsour. I will expect you to be at the front of the line with your hijab burning at your feet, ready to take on the oppressors of women. Lena Dunham. Anita Sarkeesian. Chelsea Handler. Samantha Bee. Hilary Clinton. Justin Trudeau. Barack Obama and all of you proud Feminists who call yourselves “Champions of Women”.

Your time has come.

Your chance is here.

Grab your Pussy Hats and form a march! March to Tehran and demand change!

This is the REAL fight you have been waiting for, and myself and the rest of the “Misogynists” are here with you.

AS EQUALS.

Akayed Ullah: The man from Brooklyn

Lone-wolf.

Local-man.

Brooklyn resident.

These are the terms that have been used to describe the man who tried to blow up and kill potentially hundreds in New York city today.

At the very moment that Bill de Blasio and Andrew Cuomo were speaking at a press conference on the streets of New York, Sky News was naming the botched Bomber as Akayed Ullah; a 27 year old Bangladeshi who had been living in Brooklyn for the last 7 years.

Sky News told it exactly like it was.

And that’s the only way it should be.

Enough now. Enough of this bullsh*t.

Enough of this idea that the identity of the perpetrator of acts like this should be shielded from us for as long as possible.

We’re not stupid.

Tell it like it is CNN, New York Post, Mayors’ Office, Governor Cuomo.

Let us know who these people are straight away.

I know it embarrasses you lot when it turns out NOT to be a White Nationalist committing these acts.

That doesn’t mean you have to deny the (mostly) inevitable.

Terror: the forbidden discussion

Here we go again people, here we go again. Another week on the Terror express that is sweeping Europe and the World. And it ain’t slowing down.

1 killed and several injured in Charlottesville, USA

15 killed and over 100 injured in Barcelona, Spain.

2 killed and 8 injured in Turku, Finland.

So where next? Where will be the target for the next over-the-top statement of ideologies?

The easiest way to answer that one is to grab a map, open it up, close your eyes and point.

It could literally be anywhere.

And that’s one of the two things that are scaring me the most.

The other? Not being able to talk about it.

You’re racist if you say it’s Islamic terrorism, and a Snowflake if you say it’s White Supremacy.

You’re an Islamic sympathizer if you say it’s not Islamic Terror and a Nazi if you say it’s not White Supremacy

It’s “bloody immigrants” say some people.

It’s “Lone Wolves” say another.

It’s everything to do with Islam/White Supremacy.

It’s nothing to do with Islam/White Supremacy.

Who do you believe? What opinion should you have?

Personally, I think all of these statements play a part in seeking an answer.

Does that mean I hate Muslims, Immigrants, or “foreign people”?

Does it mean I sympathise with Nazis or White Supremacists?

Absolutely not. I abhor anyone who uses their Race, Religion, Creed or Morals to justify killing and harming other people.

What I hate is that people are killing and maiming innocent people across Europe and the rest of the World and nobody can tell me why. Throwing out terms such as Nazi and Islamic Terrorist are equally useful and useless.

They are useful when they are describing people who openly adhere to the title that they are being given; James Earl Fields Jr is a Nazi and a White Supremacist who used his beliefs to justify killing Heather Heyer and attempting to kill many others, and the Terrorists who ran over people in Barcelona are Islamic Terrorists as they are using Islam as an excuse to justify their actions.

They are useless when you label an entire group, Race or Religion the same as it’s extremists. The majority of ALL races are decent people and we need to remember that. The majority of ALL Religious ideologies are decent people, and we need to remember that also.

There’s good and bad in every group of people in the World, no matter how many catergories you divide them into. The trick is to single out the bad ones and not worry about upsetting an entire group.

The good will always outweigh the bad unless we continue to label entire groups the same as their worst elements.

The bad, however, will outweigh the good if we continue to think that our own group is perfect and free from judgement.

Nobodies Race, Religion or ideology is perfect, and that is the biggest hurdle to overcome.

We need to condemn the worst elements of all the World’s ideologies – even when it’s our own.
