Skip to comments.The Islamic Feminism of All-American Muslim
Posted on 11/26/2011 10:41:22 AM PST by bayouranger
Once upon a time there used to be billboards for Virginia Slims cigarettes with the slogans, Youve come a long way, baby. The billboards are gone now, but in their place are billboards for All-American Muslim which substitute the hijab for the cigarette. The same left which was outraged at a company marketing cigarettes as a form of female empowerment is completely supportive of marketing 7th century Islamic misogyny as female empowerment.
The Fast and the Furious, the second episode of TLCs All-American Muslim, plays out like a hijab commercial, along with a pitch for the Ramadan fast. But what is missing is any acknowledgement of the violent means by which the hijab is imposed on Muslim and non-Muslim women around the world. For many women, even in North America, the consequences of not wearing the hijab can be fatal.
Sixteen-year-old Aqsa Parvaz was strangled to death by her father because she refused to wear a hijab not somewhere in Pakistan, but in Ontario. In that same city, Mohammad Shafia killed his three daughters, ranging in age from 13 to 19, over their refusal to wear hijabs. There is no way to know if Virginia Slims or the hijab killed more women, but we do know that today it is unacceptable to show women smoking, but it is acceptable to promote treating them as chattel.
All-American Muslim had set out to show that Muslims werent terrorists, that they are just the neighbors next door. What a pity then that the second episode features a terrorist supporting cleric providing hijab counseling to one of the shows stars.

Imam Abdul Latif Berry spoke at a 2009 commemoration ceremony for the Ayatollah Khomeini which took place at his own Islamic Institute of Knowledge. And hes also quite a feminist. His website features an opinion that a husband can deny his wife a divorce if she does not return the dowry and in another appears to justify marital rape.
This entire show is a Madison Avenue approach to “selling” Islam as if it were just another “product”. A carefully selected small handful of non-typical Muslims are shown as just normal neighbors, as American as apple pie. Not a word is mentioned about the attrocities of Sharia Law. This show is a snow job if ever there was one. Unfortunately it will deceive a lot of dumb or non-thinking viewers. I’ll bet the real Muslims can’t believe their good fortune in getting this major propeganda program on our national TV. Somebody on TLC sold us out.
The socialistas believe that they can use muslims as their shock troops.
You are correct. Most of the leftwing elitists in this country and Canada have only met Muslims who are well educated and connected with a college or university or one of the professions. The elitists have never met other Muslims in this country and I would bet most of them have never met a Muslim of any type in a Muslim country.
And to think that there are those in this country who want to do away with the right to bear arms.
The very words of the Koran and the various haditha which are used to interpret the less transparent clauses found therein, are all predicated on females knowing their place in the scheme of things.
Females who profess to be devout Muslim, are accorded about the same status as dhimmi, a state of slavery that exists under Shari’ah law, that claims to be “enlightened”, to about the same degree as the fictional slavetrader Simon Legree. In fact, there are a number of parallels between the Noble Islamic Gentlemen, and the fictional Simon Legree. After all, he ordered the death by whipping of “Uncle Tom”, when Tom would not give up his Christian faith, and that is a lot like the kind of punishment, even death, that Muslims administer to those who will not renounce their faith if other than the acceptable kind of Islam.
Females get whipped, stoned or beheaded for almost any real or imagined infraction of a complex set of rules subject to interpretation by the local imam, and there is no review or appeal to these verdicts.
Shariah law favors high testostrone and psychotic personalities. If that has led to an accumulation of wealth through banditry and piracy, then it also favors the possession and retention of misbegotten riches as well.
Saddam Hussein was probably the poster child for this kind of high regard by the world of Islam, and his only fault was picking a fight with another Islamic neighbor. But that was a matter of turf, and not so much a matter of doctrine according to the Arabic Sunni Wahhabi model.
The Taliban of Afghanistan is just a little more extreme example of this kind of thinking, exceot there is not much wealth to exploit in that tormented land.
Doesn’t keep them from knocking the females around, though.
Jihad per TV realism series- All American Muslims
TLC Sunday, 9 PM CST
It is an attempt to manipulate Americans into ignoring the threat of jihad and to bully them into thinking that being concerned about the jihad threat would somehow victimize these nice people in this show.
The problem people have with Islam is its teachings of violence against and the subjugation of unbelievers. It is with the supremacist ideology and the fervent believers in those noxious doctrines of warfare and subjugation. Yhe ultimate danger posed by a program presenting the normal side of life for American Muslims is that it isnt accurate.
The danger is in the deception and obfuscation of the truth which results in the intellectual disarming of the American people.
Get up a petition.
They will destroy what weve done to alert America to the danger of Islam
This atrosity MUST be stopped!
Is there a list of the advertisers available?
American - Freedom, Liberty, Opportunity
muslim - Oppression, Death, No Opportunity
No such thing as an American muslim.
You are either an American or a muslim.............
I saw this disgusting show advertised. No way I would watch it. Any ideas what their ratings are?
I was riveted to these 4 utube vids, absolutely shocking. I knew some of what islam is all about but I know all of what Islam is about. Watch this and share it with your friends and especially thier wives. I emailed all 4 to everyone on my list and you should to.
Thankyou for the enlightenment

Her statement that Islam is not a religion but a political movement, and should therefore not be granted protection under the 1st Amendment, is very significant.
But I doubt that even the Republican presidential candidates are paying attention to that fact. That’s why I take everything they’re saying with a grain of salt.
We are no different from Europe in our view on Islam and the coming national disaster resulting from allowing these people into our society.
Not too sure but it’s been a jab in the eye to every American.
