Why Do American Feminists Support Iran?
Radical Islam ^ | 7/6/12 | Manda Zand Irvin

Posted on 06/16/2012 2:55:05 PM PDT by Eleutheria5

Today, I received an email from an Iranian friend excited about the fact that at last American feminists seemed to be standing up for the women of Iran.

I was truly surprised recently upon hearing that Gloria Steinem finally decided to get involved and, after so many years of silence, is considering speaking out against the human rights violations that Iranian women have faced for 30 years.

For decades we have campaigned against the atrocities inflicted on the people of Iran, but American feminists have shown little interest in addressing the ever-worsening plight of the Iranian women and children since the 1979 Khomeinist takeover. Their silence has been deafening.

As I read further into Steinem’s petition, I saw the name “Code Pink” and recognized the signature manipulations of that organization’s co-founder, the extremely wealthy Susan “Medea” Benjamin, who has been in bed with some of the most notorious promoters of the Iranian regime in the West.

I first met Benjamin in front of the U.S. Congress when she tried vehemently to stop me from entering into the Capitol building. I gave her one of my cards and tried to discuss with her the fact that women in Iran lack the most basic human rights. I told her if she truly cared she could help us Iranian women in the U.S. assist women inside Iran. And instead of being open to listening she gave me nothing more than the self-interested Code Pink prescription for Iranians.

.....

Meanwhile, to add insult to injury, we discovered that Code Pink had taken one of the better-known photos of a women’s group protest inside Iran from 2006 and photoshopped it, erasing the original slogans of human rights and freedom written on a placard and replacing them with their own self-serving, anti-American message.

Why do American blacks claim they are “African Americans”?
Cause they’ve never been there.
Same deal for any Ameriocan woman that’s NEVER BEEN THERE.

Because they are afraid that if they said the wrong thing their offices might be bombed.

[While robbing the country blind, they (”Mullahs” and “Revolutionaries”) have spent the rest of the country’s assets in the international market to buy missiles, nuclear materials and terrorist attacks. They have destroyed all the manufacturing of Iran by gutting industries in order to secure the support of the Chinese.]

As the news media portray the religious and ideological conflict between Iran and the West they mostly overlook the fact that Iran is run by vicious criminals.

In the Liberal useful idiot hierarchy being from non-white/non-Oriental race and being a Non-Christian religion both trump gender.

So sorry Iranian gals, in the name of social justice you are just going to have to accept the indulgences and indignities of those who are your betters.

This country has never had a mortal enemy that the American left, including American feminists have not collaborated with. Even their opposition to the Nazis was in Stalin’s interest. Kicking their own country and culture in the teeth is how they validate themselves.

The United States has the Army, Navy, Coast Guard and (taa daaa!) the Marines to wage war against our enemies. The different services focus on different aspects of warfare.

Satan wages war against his enemy, God, by attacking God’s beloved children, mankind. Satan uses various forces in the same way. Among these various forces are Islam, militant feminism, the homosexual tribe, abortion rights, Marxism, etc.

“The enemy of my enemy is my friend” explains the indifference of militant feminism to the misogyny that is Islam. There is no logic or reason to their stand.

Islam is totally antithetical to those things for which militant feminism says they stand.

I wonder if this has to do with Valerie Jarrett?

The death culture celebrates death .. of any kind .. of anyone ... from just conceived to whatever.

All they want is a vehicle to draw blood and snuff life .

Why mess with a good (Islam hates women) thing ?

Because every leftie cause has the same agenda-the destruction of capitalism. Womens’ rights, civil rights, animal rights, environmentalism, gay rights, immigrants’ rights, the ACLU, NOW, the mainstream media, amnesty groups, you name it; they’re all manipulated to bring down America. That’s why Chinese polution, is okay, and if the Mussie’s want to stone adulterers, rape vitims, heretics and homosexuals, that’s okay, too. And if a liberal politician wants to steal and molest women, use drugs and sell secrets to the Russians and Chinese, that’s okay, too. Quit listening to what these gruoups say and watch what they do. And pay attention to their deliberately selective outrage and indignation, and their silence as well. It all fits into a repeated pattern and reaches an inescapable conclusion; the fools, fellow travelers and radical psychpaths are determined on one thing and one thing only-absolute political power and totalitarianism.

It can be distilled to a much simpler idea: it’s OK to mouth off at people who behave civilly; mouth off at the muslims, and you could be beheaded or blown up. There is no strength of conviction and no courage there.

Our military people are risking life and limb and their families are making many sacrifices so that we have freedom of speech. Some people abuse that freedom. Deportation is too good for the abusers.

Because “feminism” is about radical liberal politics not about women.

Multiculturalism is a virtual religion among the left, even when it contradicts their other stated goals.

They secretly long to be dominated by men?

Because feminism is not about women.

Their goal has always been to destroy the West, not to “liberate women”.

Sure. I could see a radical feminist going to Ghaza in a hijab, finding a virile-looking mujaahid with a hairlip caused by a knife scar, getting him alone and taking it all off, then lying down invitingly and saying, “honor kill me, my big Muslim moose. Let me be your first virgin.” Then the mujaahid looks the goods over, shakes his head no and leaves.

ALL left-wing groups IN the US exist with the sole goal of destruction OF the US. Everything else they purport to stand for is — in the recent common parlance of FR — a false flag operation.

Thanks Eleutheria5.
