Taliban Oppresses Women, Feminists Are Silent

Where are the marches?

Now that the radical Islamist Taliban has taken over Afghanistan, females will suffer greatly. Women will be chattel and girls will not be educated. Here are the words of the Taliban on it.


FNC: “A Taliban spokesperson insisted to Fox News on Friday that ‘there will be no issue about women’s rights’ following the militant group’s takeover of Afghanistan, despite widespread international concerns.”

In addition, Suhail Shaheen said he opposes American views that “women should have an education without [a] hijab. That is a change of culture,” he said. “Our culture… they can receive education with hijab. They can work with hijab. We should be focusing how can we work together in a positive and constructive way which is in the best of interest of both sides.”

Are you embarrassed that Joe Biden is our "president"?

That’s an interesting statement. At first he says that women will have to remain covered to he educated. No doubt many mandatory masking fanatics here in the states would agree with him. Then he switches over to Western public relations doublespeak. Someone is instructing him well. Does anybody know the present whereabouts of Frank Luntz?

“There will be no issue about the women’s rights. No problem about their education, their work,” Shaheen added. “But we should not be after changing each other’s culture as we are not intending to change your culture, you should not be changing our culture.” He here doubles down in a “methinks the lady doth protest too much” fashion and again returns to PR gobbledygook. He goes on and on in this vein.

So, our spokesterrorist pal sounds like a misogynistic buffoon. Usually when that happens the ranks of Western feminism rise up in upheaval. But not this time. No marches, no picketing, no funny hats. Know why? Because this time it’s real. The Taliban treated females like personal property the last time they ran Afghanistan and they aim to do it again. How do Western feminists respond?


They are champs at excoriating those who aren’t the enemies of women, like, say, Brett Kavanaugh. But an entire regime designs to return women to the Middle Ages? Well, that’s much too real for modern Western feminism. It engenders a responsibility to do something other than open their festering yaps. And that, they neither desire nor are capable of.
