The current season of The Handmaids Tale has been brutal. And so has America as of late, the Daily Beast contributor Alex Zaragoza bemoaned to open her overwrought piece on why we should be worried that our country is turning into a dystopian feminist fiction.
Since the premiere of Hulus adaptation of Margaret Atwoods novel last year, liberals in the media have made a concerted effort to compare the feminist dystopia to current America, with Trump as leader. With the show being renewed for a second season this past Spring, its given the media ample more opportunities to gush how relevant and timely its fearmongering message is, because, well, Trump. Zaragoza hyped how Trump made the shows menaces and dehumanization and persecutions of the most vulnerable a reality:
The election of Donald Trump felt like a precursor to the menaces, dehumanization and persecutions of the most vulnerable people in America, and the show was playing out the what-ifs that were well on their way to being realities.
Nevermind that it always gets lost on liberals how the same could be said about their pet issue, abortion. But its not just Trump Zaragoza has problems with, its basically any figure on the right, peppering her piece with snide and outright nasty comments, like this one, claiming that senior Trump adviser Stephen Miller fantasizes about women getting raped:
As this country continues to slide down a slippery slope into chaos, watching The Handmaids Tale has become masochistic as the main character, Offred/June, and other women are raped, abused and heavily oppressed by the fictional government of Gilead. I imagine this is what Stephen Millers dream journal looks like.
Or smearing potential Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett as part of a religious sect that is just like the Handmaids Tale and pro-lifers as opposed to what is moral and just (no irony there):
On top of this, one of the leading judicial nominees, Amy Coney Barrett, is a fervent opponent of abortion rights and belongs to a religious sect that literally refers to women as handmaids.
Basically, if you value a moral and just world and are petrified of a real-life Handmaids Tale situation, were fucked.
Zaragoza explains how the current season seems to prophesy what has been going on in America, with children being separated from their parents, to journalists being murdered. These contentious issues are clearly much more complicated in real life, but Zaragoza boils it down to the easy excuse, Its Trumps fault. She panics again with some more swearing:
America is about to take on even more of the traits of Gilead, with the likelihood that even if the left take back the House, Senate and the White House, the Supreme Court will still be operating under the tenets of Trump for years to come. Again, were fucked. And the most vulnerable in our society will be most affected yet again.
Noting that Gilead is essentially Americas future in the show, she claims that the women in the show may be pining for Americas past, but they shouldnt, because we are already living in their story:

The scenes are meant to give hope, but no one seems to point out that Gilead grew out of AmericaAmerica fostered Gilead enough that it overthrew the country. And as a viewer watching the atrocities of the dystopian world go down, I ask myself if theyre longing for the America I currently live in. I cant help but look around incredulously. Are you for real, Handmaids? Have you seen this place? Sure, Im not wearing a bonnet or forced to become a baby factory, but lets not get ahead of ourselves.
America is not so beautiful right now, even if its not as bad as Gilead, Zaragoza whines to end her over-the-top piece.
This fictional show is a favorite fantasy among liberal feminists who use it to complain that women are now doomed with Trump as President. On Tuesday, another Daily Beast writer Erin Gloria Ryan claimed Amy Coney Barrett was the villain in a Handmaids Tale.
It was originally published about Islam.
Alex Zaragoza is nuttier than a squirrel turd.
Funny how “dehumanization” follows 60 years of feminism and women turning into coarse, vulgar creatures with no hint of femininity left. Many women want to compete with men to be the lowest class creatures possible.
Easy, they’ll just kill the conservative justices so a left-wing president can replace them. Do you doubt me?
Did you read the book?
But now they just make things up out of nothing. In an individual these beliefs are termed delusional. Complete fantasy. But when the delusional have a quorum, suddenly it's fact. So what rights are being denied to women? Women have it pretty good in this country, better than the men for the most part, by almost any measure.
Judge Kavenaugh is another focus of delusion. The man has had a straight forward political career without controversy or corruption. And yet to read the media and left wing copy on the guy, you'd think he was Judge Roy Bean, personally hanging innocent defendants at a gibbet in the courthouse parking lot.
Gosh, I didnt realize that Catholicism refered to women as handmaids! It doesnt?? You mean THE AUTHOR IS LYING??
The most realistic 2017 example of “Gilead” was ISIS territory.
Boko Haram is a close second.
The world has gone through terrible times but I don’t think it has ever been more demented and just flat out crazy. Everything is backwards.
I couldn’t tell if Atwood was either:
A: translating fundamentalist Islamic oppression into something Christian audiences would get, a la Iranian revolution
B. actually fear Jerry Falwell and others actually wanting to institute something like this, mirroring the insulting smear that tyranny in America comes wrapped in the flag and carrying a Bible
Their comparison of the lead character being separated from her daughter with illegals sneaking into the country and being temporarily separated from their children is insane.
No, it is the feminists who are dehumanizing themselves.
The witch trials in Europe and then in America?
This book came out in 1985, long before the whole Muslim/Isis/INVASION OF EUROPE & AMERICA.
She has written a couple of sort of funny books, however, she is pretty much an anti-male, lefty feminist.
Combined with BRAVE NEW WORLD.
He’s humanizing those “blobs of cells.”
Perhaps women should keep their knees together and men should keep their pants zipped. You know, like being responsible adults instead of rutting pigs.
