Where is the feminist anger at Brandeis?: The silence on the Ayaan Hirsi Ali snub is deafening

‘HONOR DIARIES” might not be coming to a theater near you, at least not if CAIR gets its way. The award-winning documentary about “honor” violence against girls and women in much of the Muslim world was released last month in honor of International Women’s Day, and it didn’t take long for the Council on American Islamic Relations to slap its all-purpose “Islamophobic” label on it. The film has been shown in dozens of venues, but CAIR has raised enough of a stink to get screenings cancelled on several college campuses, including the University of Michigan and the University of Illinois.

In Portuguese, “cair” means “to fall”.

Let’s hope they do.

Freedom lovers must fight with equal fierceness to the Islamist monsters. Brandeis must be shown the error of its decision; its policies scourged publicly, its donations shunned; its leadership hounded and challenged in public meetings, etc. The West is taking the easy road of submission and will soon be dhimmis to a greater Islamic caliphate if the Muslims are not stopped.

Neither the queers nor the militant feminists have what it takes to speak up against the most offensive opposition they have.

I think they know the Muslims will kill them if they were to get serious about stopping the attacks against homosexuals and women.

On the left, the unifying identifier is leftism. Each of the aggrieved member groups realizes their own subgroup identity is second to leftism. Since the enemy is always conservatism and normalcy, affronts by companion leftist are overlooked. Recall the impeached former president’s penchant for sexual abuse of subordinates was forgiven by the otherwise interested subgroup leadership.

Jews were passive when faced with an existential threat 75 years ago. Faced with the same threat today, they remain passive, except in Israel.

The feminazis want to destroy this country, just like the bearded savages. They both hate Christianity. They are both fascist. That’s why feminazis will never condemn the bearded savages.

Because the most powerful “feminists” are servants only of evil.

They sense a kindred bond with the evil of Islam.

Like all progressive groups it’s power they’re really concerned with. Progressives don’t care about gays or women or blacks or illegal aliens. They just use them to get more power. The minute it becomes a choice between power or supporting the ‘cause’ it becomes obvious which is more important to them.

There should be thousands of protestors showing up at Brandeis with pictures of victims of Female genitalia Mutilation (readily available on the internet).
We had some Somalis living near us who were engaging in such a practice. The Child Welfare office did not ultimately bring any charges, saying it was a religious practice. No one was there to protect the child. The State failed.

George Soros ordered the feminazis to keep their mouths shut.

One of my favorite quotes, newly discovered actually, is this one from David Horowitz:

“The issue is never the issue. The issue is always the Revolution.”

The minute we understand, comprehend, that, things like this start to logically fall into place and make sense.

That is so true. Our “leadership” is like Pavlov’s dog, and democraps know it. Liberals push a divisive point and Republicans leap to defend themselves, getting entirely separated from their own message.

WHEW! What a relief!

CAIR could have done something really awful and labeled the film “Racist!”

It still could happen if US President Valerie Jarrett learns of this!

Feminists are in the same place they were with Clinton - on their knees, with an open mouth. Only now they’re facing Muslims.
