The Other McCain has some news that may shock you, or, given the moral retardation of Feminists, maybe not
The wretched cowardice of Brandeis University in rescinding an honorary degree for human rights activist Aayan Hirsi Ali surprised a lot of people. A victim of female genital mutilation (FGM), Ali was the target of terroristic threats in the Netherlands for speaking out against Islamic oppression of women. The question was asked, “Where’s the feminist anger at Brandeis over Ayaan Hirsi Ali?”
Brace yourself for the answer: Phyllis Chesler looked at the Brandeis faculty petition against Ali and found that 21% of the signatures came from faculty associated with the university’s Women and Gender Studies (WGS) program. As a matter of fact, it appears that the controversial petition actually originated with WGS faculty members.
Sick, sick, sick! The Left is so obsessed with “equality” and so convinced that Western culture is not better than other cultures, that they refuse to see the truth that is plain as day to anyone with half an eye open.
The faculty petition claimed that, by honoring Aayan Hirsi Ali, Brandeis would suggest “to the public that violence toward girls and women is particular to Islam . . . thereby obscuring such violence in our midst among non-Muslims, including on our own campus,” and concluded: ”We cannot accept Ms. Hirsi Ali’s triumphalist narrative of western civilization, rooted in a core belief of the cultural backwardness of non-western peoples.”
Go read it all. It will stun you. It would appear that “Feminists” are Leftist, more than they are pro-women wouldn’t it? This is more about hating Western culture, and of course America, than it is about anything else. Again, to the Left mentioning that many women are treated horribly in most Islamic nations is equal to heresy. Making such judgments, even when facts support those judgments is unacceptable to the Left. Nothing, it seems is as intolerable to the Left as inequality, and noting that some religions and cultures treat women worse than others is seen by the Left as teaching inequality.
