From the Lexington Herald-Leader we find the ultimate in sudden feminist awareness that the new Islamist movement heralded by the Obama Administration as the Arab Spring might not be so wonderful for the women who will soon be considered chattel and little more than the common dog in the Arab world.
The clueless feminist editorialist Trudy Rubin writes: "The growing strength of Islamist political parties in the Mideast's new 'democracies' (a challengeable term if ever there was one) makes one wonder what will happen to Arab women's rights." She continues: "I'm not talking of women in Saudi Arabia where they are still fighting for the right to drive and are relegated to segregated workplaces, (of which seems to have little concern) but of the countries where working women have long been the norm."
I highlight this insipid opinion article only to show the level of utter stupidity the typical liberal has embraced to avoid the reality of a disastrous Obama foreign policy. They have so devotedly turned a blind-eye to the incompetency of Obama's foreign policy that they have only now been able to sort out the casualties of their support. Feminists of the world should recoil from his policies, they should be outside the White House with the determination of Cindy Sheehan to demand that he protect the women he has consequently thrown to the Islamist dogs.
But, they have not. They have supported him with the vigor of SS troops. They have deluded themselves with the idea that Obama is a Democrat and therefore superior in every way to George W. Bush. Never mind that the policies of the Obama Administration have led more women into the dark world of male domination on a scale that is breathtaking to behold. Likewise, homosexuals have supported this administration with the same vehemence, the same dedication and all the while he has helped aid the regimes that will openly and willingly have them shot on the spot.
The enemy of your enemy is not your friend, ladies. Despite assurances of including women in the government of Tunisia, it is only a matter of time before the stronger Islamists take control. Let the women vote, it doesn't matter any Islamist government can edit out those votes at will. It can make it illegal without consent of congress, or a referendum, it needs only a strong leader to say so. Democracies in these nations is a misnomer. It is a democracy in so far as it validates the Islamist agenda, the moment that it does not, the moment that it leads to a contradiction to the Quran, it is a useless tool of those seeking power.
Pat yourselves on the back, ladies, you have helped to lead these women into the worst future imaginable, because it was the largely secular governments of Hosni Mubarak that allowed such things. It was even the largely secular government of Muammar Ghadaffi that allowed such things. Now that the Iran-backed movements of the Muslim Brotherhood have flexed their muscles I would look toward Iran and Yemen to see the rights women will have in the future.
