Aussie media has jumped on this predictably. Just read the self righteous nonsense in this article...

Self Righteous Nonsense


I think we should agree & amplify with meme warfare. This can only push more moderate & fed up men to our cause with the eventual apocalypse spoken of above not actually occurring. This should be a forum project methinks. A new thread is in order.

Already doing that.

I've found that accusing even the slightest deviation from groupthink as some kind of fascism, coupled with ample use of the word "fuck" seems to quickly ingratiate yourself to leftist crowds.

Good article by an Ex-Muslim woman who grew up in Pakistan and experienced what Hijab-freedom and empowerment truly is:

Trojan Horses in Women's Movement

It must be so convenient, while marching in the safe confines of Washington DC, to advocate that other women -- far away -- be genitally mutilated, married off in childhood, and beaten and violated in their own homes. These women in hijabs marching on Washington do not have to live in this "Utopia." They are comfortably living in the "infidel West," protected from such barbarity.

The Western culture that allows women to shout into microphones is not even necessarily the culture these women believe in; it is often just a tool they use to promote totalitarian ideas such as anti-Semitism, religious intolerance and imposition of theocratic beliefs.

Does Linda Sarsour really think that people have gone so mad that they will give up the civil liberties that their ancestors earned through the centuries, merely for interest-free loans?

The hypocrisy is that Sarsour's bold lifestyle in the US portrays that deep down she herself loathes the suppressing conditions that she promotes for the poor women of the Muslim world, who actually have to live with them. Coming from a conservative Muslim society, I know the culture she yearns for would never allow her to launch such activism without permission from her "guardian" men.

The dissenting voices of the oppressed are fighting on two fronts. They are being crushed by their own totalitarian regimes and at the same time by Western apologists for these tyrants.

Why do women who believe in equal rights for women, pick as their spokesperson someone who one minute boasts of her supposed dissent as "patriotism," while the next minute advocating chopping off other womens' genitals? It is like choosing a hangman to campaign against the death penalty, or the head of ISIS to campaign for same sex marriages.

The principles of "dissent," of which they claim to be so proud, and to have borrowed from religious sources, are actually the modern world's liberal values and human rights -- just those rights values they seem to be trying to destroy.

From the other side of their mouths, however, they are trying to impose Islamic sharia law on the West. Unfortunately, sharia is openly antagonistic to Western values and human rights.

How can cults that believe in dominating others call themselves progressive, when their entire message runs counter to the spirit of tolerance and social coexistence?

The champions of sharia have always said they wish to establish a "righteous" form of government, made by divine law, and presumably to that end, they implant their set of rules -- such as allowing no debate or criticism on their beliefs, or such as segregating sexes -- to destroy modern democracies.

It must be so convenient, while marching on Washington DC, to advocate that other women -- far away -- be genitally mutilated, married off in childhood, and domestically beaten and violated -- and all the while, in the safe confines of Washington, to stay silent on issues of truly massive abuse: floggings; acid burnings; chopping off limbs or heads, or burning, drowning or burying people alive.

These women in hijabs marching on Washington DC do not have to live in this "Utopia." They are comfortably living in the "infidel West', protected from such barbarity.

The values they are enjoying here are the values of the enlightened world and have nothing to do with the culture they are trying to impose on others.

The culture that is allowing women such as Linda Sarsour to shout into microphones is not even necessarily the culture these women believe in; it is often just the culture they are using to promote totalitarian ideas such as anti-Semitism, religious intolerance and the imposition of theocratic beliefs through infiltration or force.

The culture to which Sarsour says she aspires, allows mutilating women but does not allow women to speak in a loud tone, let alone speaking through microphones. Hence, she owes her current privileges to her American identity.


Muslim activist Linda Sarsour one minute boasts of her supposed dissent as "patriotism," while the next minute advocates chopping off other womens' genitals. (Image source: Seriously.TV video screenshot)
Sarsour stated in a tweet on May 13, 2015: "You'll know when you're living under Sharia Law if suddenly all your loans & credit cards become interest free. Sound nice, doesn't it?"

Then she wrote on an April 29, 2014 tweet: "@RobertWildiris I don't drink alcohol, don't eat pork, I follow Islamic way of living. That's all Sharia law is."

It would be nice if the only requirements of sharia were avoiding alcohol or pork were; there happens, however, to be an ocean of dos and don'ts that fall into the category of "I follow Islamic way of living."

The ocean Sarsour never bothered to mention, but that the world witnesses every day, exists from the Saudi palaces to the caves of Afghanistan and Raqqa.

The culture that Sarsour desires to impose on the world -- along with promises to waive interest on loans -- does not allow women to interact with unrelated men, drive cars, ride bicycles, attend sports events, leave the house without permission, or wear makeup and clothes that reveal their body parts, let alone address a crowd.

Women would also need four male witnesses to prove a rape, or risk being stoned to death for "adultery."

Does Sarsour really think that people have gone so mad that they will give up all of their civil liberties and freedom that their ancestors earned through the centuries, merely for interest free loans?

The hypocrisy is that her bold lifestyle in the US portrays that deep down, she herself loathes the suppressing conditions that she likes promoting for the poor women of the Muslim world who actually have to live with them.

How would these women in hijabs like to spend a few weeks under the totalitarian regimes about which they love to brag?

Three British girls who followed the call of ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi slipped into Syria to join the jihad, only to be desperate over the mistake they had made; one is believed dead.

Kadiza Sultana, Shamima Begum and Amira Abase, intoxicated by ISIS propaganda, entered Syria to join the holy mission and be ISIS brides.

Sultana reportedly was killed in a Russian airstrike while too scared to try an escape from ISIS, fearing extreme torture and public execution if caught.

The whereabouts of the other two are still unknown, apart from rare contact reported between them and their families.

Sophie Kasiki, a French girl who also managed to break away from the ISIS stronghold in Raqqa with her four-year-old son, said she risked death if caught to try to save her son. She defined the ordeal of being with ISIS as "a journey into a hell from which there seemed no return."

Samra Kesinovic, a 17 year old Austrian girl, was reportedly beaten to death by ISIS fighters when she was caught trying to flee, after being "gifted" by her partner to another ISIS fighter as a sex slave.

The irony is that Linda Sarsour and her followers say they love Hamas and caliphates like the one established by Abu Bakar al-Baghdadi, or Saudi and Iranian regimes -- but of course they do not live in them.

Sarsour has doubtless been put forward by men to promote their soft image as they themselves cannot boast about the rights they are giving to their women.

Coming from a conservative Muslim society, I know the culture she yearns for would never allow her to launch such activism without permission from her "guardian" men.

How come she forgot to mention that in Saudi Arabia and many other Muslim states, her kind of activism would cost a woman her family, her honour and probably her life.

A court in the state of Washington suspended the ban on travelers from seven mainly Muslim countries imposed by the President Trump last week.

Would any judge or influential person dare refute the order of, say, the Saudi King, a sharia council of Iran, a member of a royal family from a Middle Eastern country, a military dictator or the Hamas leaders Sarsour apparently so admires?

You cannot even imagine in your worst nightmares dissenting in those sharia-compliant territories, but yes, dissent is allowed in the US and the West, where people are freely allowed to speak their thoughts.

These are not the values of the alien land she professes to admire; these were fought for and earned by the people of the West with their blood.

The progressives' one-sided love affair with extremists will never serve the purpose of promoting equality.

In fact, it could be counterproductive. In Egypt, the conservative men used women as protestors to overthrow Husni Mubarak's regime, but once the Muslim Brotherhood, which spearheaded the Morsi regime, took control, the whole world watched in shock as they imposed sharia on everyone -- most of all on those women. The Morsi regime later punished women who protested the Iranian-style sharia that it was imposing.

The same imams who were the moving spirits behind Egypt's revolution were then delivering fatwas [religious opinions] to rape the same women who had been marching in the streets for their rights. According to al Arabiyya:

"An Egyptian Salafi preacher, said raping and sexually harassing women protesters in Cairo's Tahrir Square is justified, calling them "crusaders" who "have no shame, no fear and not even feminism.... Abu Islam added that these women activists are going to Tahrir Square not to protest but to be sexually abused because they had wanted to be raped...And by the way, 90 percent of them are crusaders and the remaining 10 percent are widows who have no one to control them.. "

Around 80 women were molested in one night alone, when the Morsi government was ousted and people came out to celebrate his departure.

Those are the views Sarsour is trying to sell.

The same men these liberals and progressives are trying to empower, once enthroned, would declare them apostates and inflict the worst imaginable punishments on them for the "crimes" they are committing by promoting the set of values they think bring harmony in the world.

The dissenting voices of the oppressed are fighting on two fronts. They are being crushed by their own totalitarian regimes and at the same time by apologists for these tyrants whom the marchers are empowering -- probably without even realizing what massive harm they are doing.

I noticed when I listened to ex-Muslim talks that especially white convert women experienced a stupendous amount of attention once they put on the Hijab and became Muslim. You can be a literal 5 like Linda Sarsour and get suddenly the attention of a female 9. Those women get non-stop marriage offers, get thousands of emails all across the world. That happened to marginally attractive American converts that talked about their experiences.

Essentially the Hijab and the conversion raises your SMV at least among Muslims tremendously - you become a superstar. If you add some feminist-marxist ideology then it becomes even more exhilerating.

The truth is that sharia is much more than lack of interest and other such things. And as for "lack of interest" - that is bullshit as well. It was meant to be that way, Christianity is also initially against usury, but the truth is that Islamic banking credit cards and loans have such a massive fee structure that you would wish for a low-interest rate. The globalist bankers have completely taken over the so-called Islamic banks.

Women's march - my ass.

Someone should have stood on the sidelines shouting: "Whose bitch this is?"

There is a particular fetishism among Muslims men with women from other cultures becoming Muslim, this is in part with the conquest ideology of the Muslim world, and with the fetishism of Muslim men with white women, this is what motivate ISIS to attack and rape Yazidis people, and wanting to impregnate Yazidis women.

Having a women from Europe or USA to be a Muslim turn them on the same way they feel when they conquer a village of Yazidis people. Having Western women wearing Hijab is like putting your flag on enemy territory, and they make sure these Western women are front center in any public gathering, or every TV show or interview.

A good example in Britain is Myriam Francois-Cerrah, every time there is a discussion on TV about Islam and religion she is the one sent to speak.

[Image: Myriam-Francois-Cerrah-British-Islam.jpg]

Believe me, Muslim men love that Western men have to watch one of their own women wearing a Hijab on TV talking abut how great their religion and Alla is.

And you are right, random 5s become 9.9 once they become Muslim, they will get marriage proposals and will be treated like royalty.

RE: Women's March on Washington
The march keeps on giving:


And that is even a NY Post headline!

Quote:The document was co-authored by, among others, Rasmea Yousef Odeh, a convicted terrorist. Odeh, a Palestinian, was convicted in Israel in 1970 for her part in two terrorist bombings, one of which killed two students while they were shopping for groceries. She spent 10 years in prison for her crimes. She then managed to become a US citizen in 2004 by lying about her past (great detective work, INS: Next time, use Google) but was subsequently convicted, in 2014, of immigration fraud for the falsehoods. However, she won the right to a new trial (set for this spring) by claiming she had been suffering from PTSD at the time she lied on her application. Oh, and in her time as a citizen, she worked for a while as an ObamaCare navigator.

So you have convicted murderers, radical feminists, terrorist sympathizers and now convicted terrorists among the lead organizers.

Was the Women's March organized by the LEAGUE OF VILLAINS?

A "former" terrorist organising a large scale disruptive event where plenty of optics and civilians will be in packed audiences?

I sure hope nobody in security is going to slack off on this one.

Alexandria schools to close Wednesday during ‘Day Without a Woman’

http://wtop.com/alexandria/2017/03/alexa...out-woman/

Quote:WASHINGTON — Alexandria City Public Schools will be closed Wednesday after more than 300 staff members requested the day off.

The “unusually high number” of call-outs may be connected with the “Day Without a Woman” nationwide protest and social media campaign, school superintendent Alvin Crawley said in a statement.

Wednesday also marks International Women’s Day.

March 8 will be a teacher workday, Crawley said. March 10 was already a regularly scheduled workday.

“This is not a decision that was made lightly,” Crawley said, adding it was “based solely on our ability to provide sufficient staff to cover all our classrooms.”

The decision to close school “is not based on a political stance or position,” Crawley said.

Students will not have to make up the day, in part because the lack of severe winter weather means schools still have plenty of snow days to use.

All scheduled after-school activities will continue as planned on Wednesday, the school said.

Breakfast and lunch will still be provided at certain school locations. They are:

Patrick Henry Elementary School
Cora Kelly School for Math, Science and Technology
William Ramsay Elementary School
Francis C. Hammond Middle School
T.C. Williams High School
The “Day without a Woman” campaign was started by organizers of the Women’s March on Washington, which drew massive crowds to D.C. for a peaceful protest on the National Mall the day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration.

So far, no other schools in the region have plans to close school.

Fairfax County Public Schools has no plans to close school, spokesman John Torre told WTOP in an email.

Montgomery County Public Schools told WTOP they are monitoring the situation but didn’t have any announcements to make Monday.

D.C. Public Schools will be open Wednesday “and all students and staff are expected to be in school throughout the day so that teaching and learning can continue,” DCPS Chief of Schools John Davis said in a statement.

Is this real life?

RE: Women's March on Washington
The most hilarious part of the women's strike is that it reinforces the fact that women can't do math.

Part of the strike is to refrain from doing any shopping on that day. Dumb cunts don't realise that any purchases that would have been made on that day will either be made before hand or delayed until the next day, leading to zero net effect on sales.

So what is the takeaway going to be for these kids?

"Wow! Day without women was great! I got to stay home and play video games with no one to bother me all day! Can we have a day without women EVERY day?!!"

Methinks this isn't the response that they are anticipating from the next generation of shitlords.

The schools didn't have to grant the day off. But they did.

Indoctrination is strong in the schools as they say.

Is this real life?

So what is the takeaway going to be for these kids?

"Wow! Day without women was great! I got to stay home and play video games with no one to bother me all day! Can we have a day without women EVERY day?!!"

Methinks this isn't the response that they are anticipating from the next generation of shitlords.

Hopefully there's also a proportion of "Gee - because Mum decided to have a day off just for the hell of it, Dad had to come home and look after me, and he actually had time to play with me and stuff, and it was fucking awesome because we went fishing instead and didn't have to listen to Mum pissing and moaning about her tampon/lipstick/hair/weight/shoes. I'll remember this when I have my own family or when Mum divorces Dad for no good reason."

Remissas, discite, vivet.

RE: Women's March on Washington
Another women's march? This time on International Women's Day and they are protesting for what...?

A Day Without A Woman
Quote:On International Women's Day, March 8th, women and our allies will act together for equity, justice and the human rights of women and all gender-oppressed people, through a one-day demonstration of economic solidarity.

Are You In?

In the same spirit of love and liberation that inspired the Women's March, we join together in making March 8th A Day Without a Woman, recognizing the enormous value that women of all backgrounds add to our socio-economic system--while receiving lower wages and experiencing greater inequities, vulnerability to discrimination, sexual harassment, and job insecurity. We recognize that trans and gender nonconforming people face heightened levels of discrimination, social oppression and political targeting. We believe in gender justice.

Anyone, anywhere, can join by making March 8th A Day Without a Woman, in one or all of the following ways:

Women take the day off, from paid and unpaid labor
Avoid shopping for one day (with exceptions for small, women- and minority-owned businesses).
Wear RED in solidarity with A Day Without A Woman

A Day Without a Woman reaffirms our commitment to the Principles of Unity, which were collaboratively outlined for the Women’s March. We are inspired by recent courageous actions like the "Bodega strike" lead by Yemeni immigrant store owners in New York City and the Day Without Immigrants across the U.S. We applaud the efforts of #GrabYourWallet and others to bring public accountability to unethical corporate practices. The Women's March stands in solidarity with the International Women's Strike organizers, feminists of color and grassroots groups in planning global actions for equity, justice and human rights.

When millions of us stood together in January, we saw clearly that our army of love greatly outnumbers that of fear, greed and hatred. Let's raise our voices together again, to say that women’s rights are human rights, regardless of a woman’s race, ethnicity, religion, immigration status, sexual identity, gender expression, economic status, age or disability.

From their FAQ page:
Quote:Q: What is the goal of A Day Without a Woman?
A: The goal is to highlight the economic power and significance that women have in the US and global economies, while calling attention to the economic injustices women and gender nonconforming people continue to face. We play an indispensable role in the daily functions of life in all of society, through paid & unpaid, seen & unseen labor.

We must have the power to control our bodies and be free from gender norms, expectations and stereotypes. We must free ourselves and our society from the constant awarding of power, agency and resources disproportionately to masculinity, to the exclusion of others.

We must end the hiring discrimination that women, particularly mothers, women of color, women with disabilities, Indigenous women, lesbian, queer and trans women still face each day in our nation. We believe that creating workforce opportunities that reduce discrimination against women and mothers allow economies to thrive. Nations and industries that support and invest in caregiving and basic workplace protections—including benefits like paid family leave, access to affordable childcare, sick days, healthcare, fair pay, vacation time, and healthy work environments—have shown growth and increased capacity.

We believe in Gender Justice and the protection of the human rights of gay, lesbian, bi, queer, trans, Two-Spirit and gender nonconforming people.

We believe in an economy powered by transparency, accountability, security and equity.

We believe that all workers must have the right to organize and fight for a living minimum wage, and that unions and other labor associations are critical to a healthy and thriving economy for all. Undocumented and migrant, farm workers and domestic workers must be included in our labor protections, and we stand in full solidarity with the sex workers’ rights movement. We recognize that exploitation for sex and labor in all forms is a violation of human rights.

Q: Why is #DayWithoutAWoman happening on March 8th?
A: March 8th is International Women's Day. We were compelled to stand with women around the globe, just as they stood with us on January 21st.

Q: There are lots of campaigns about International Women’s Day. Can we participate in other actions?
A: Yes. Taking the day means the option to spend time attending rallies and marches, supporting local groups, and building community with each other. If you participate in activities to show solidarity, we suggest bringing snacks and drinks from home, if possible, to avoid spending money on March 8th.

Q: What are people going to do to observe A Day Without a Woman?
A: People can participate in any one or all of the following ways:

Women to refrain from paid and unpaid work

We ask all people to refrain from shopping in stores or online. Exceptions include local small businesses and women-owned businesses that support us. (#GrabYourWallet has a list of corporations we do not support throughout the year.)

Wear red in solidarity with the strike.

We ask that our male allies lean into care giving on March 8th, and use the day to call out decision-makers at the workplace and in the government to extend equal pay and adequate paid family leave for women.

Q: Why wear red?
A: We have chosen red as a color of signifying revolutionary love and sacrifice. Red is the color of energy and action associated with our will to survive. It signifies a pioneering spirit and leadership qualities, promoting ambition and determination. It also has a history of being associated with the labor movement. (Source)

Q: Is this day about women withdrawing from unpaid/emotional labor and caregiving?
A: Care work is work, whether paid or unpaid, and the burden of care falls disproportionately on the shoulders of women, particularly women of color. Whether it’s child care, elder care, self-care, emotional care, caregiving plays a central role in keeping America’s economy going. Women make up the bulk of minimum wage earners and caregivers are often at the bottom of this and are most often women of color. We must repair and replace the systemic disparities that permeate caregiving at every level of society. We stand for the rights, dignity, and fair treatment of all unpaid and paid caregivers.

Q: What about women who cannot afford to take the day off work or those who fear they will be fired?
A: We encourage everyone who cannot strike from work to show your support by wearing red in solidarity on March 8th.

We recognize that some of the 82% of women who become moms, particularly single mothers, may not have the option of refusing to engage in paid work or unpaid child care on March 8th. Many mothers have always worked and in our modern labor force, almost half of all households are women-lead, yet motherhood remains the number one predictor of poverty and a woman’s earning potential is diminished further with each child. We strike for them.

Many women in our most vulnerable communities will not have the ability to join the strike, due to economic insecurity. We strike for them. Many others work jobs that provide essential services, including reproductive health services, and taking off work would come at a great social cost. We recognize the value of their contribution.

Q: Is this an issue of privilege?
A: Throughout history, economic resistance has been most effective when undertaken by directly impacted people themselves. The 1965 California grape boycott was lead by Mexican and Filipino farm workers, the 1955 Montgomery bus boycott by African Americans in a brutal Jim Crow South, and, more recently, the Yemeni Muslim-led NYC Bodega strike, the widespread Day Without Immigrants, and the 2016 Poland women’s “Black Monday” in response to a proposed abortion ban.

It is evident that the intersecting identities of women mean we experience widely different degrees of privilege or lack thereof. Everyone has a role to play. Women and allies with greater privilege are called to leverage that resource for social good on March 8th. However, everyone’s involvement signifies an equal commitment to the day, especially those who experience greater vulnerability to discrimination and exclusion. Even wearing red may be a great act of defiance for some uniformed workers.

It is possible that some women may be fired, as there were about a dozen instances of firings over the Day Without Immigrants strike. Nothing comes without a sacrifice, yet we also recognize that women of color, women with disabilities, LGBTQIA and gender nonconforming individuals, Muslims and other vulnerable groups are at a much greater risk of employer retaliation. We must be diligent and look out for each other, using our privilege on behalf of others when it is called for.

Social activism is not a privilege. It is a necessity born out of a moral imperative and an imminent threat.

Q: How can businesses (and households) participate?
A: Businesses can participate by closing for the day or giving women workers the day off. Even more important than the symbolism of standing with women on March 8th, companies should do an audit of policies impacting women and their families. By ensuring that women have pay equity, a livable wage and paid leave, they are ensuring that their long-term actions match the actions on the day of the strike.

Households can give a paid day off to caregivers, nannies, housekeepers, and elder care. March 8th is a day for men to increase their caregiving activities.

Q: How can men participate?
A: Consider the ways that the women in your life care for and support you (your family, your office, etc.) daily, and imagine how you can provide that support to women in your life.

Lean into care work and housework; If you are partnered with a woman, review with her what domestic work she does. Maybe this means staying home to watch your children, or taking them to work with you.

Bring up equal pay at work, paid family leave, find out how much your women co-workers. Consider scheduling a meeting with the decision-makers at the workplace to advocate for female counterparts.

Reflect on your expectations of the women you work with in the office. For instance, do you expect them to clean up after meetings, order the food, etc.? Consider the space you take up in conversation. Start by taking action in these areas today.

Wear red in solidarity.

Q: What about trans women and men and gender nonconforming (GNC) folks?
A: This strike is for women, femmes and all gender-oppressed people. We recognize that in addition to being economically, socially, and politically oppressed, trans and GNC people face heightened levels of discrimination in the workplace, particularly as there are no federal anti-discrimination laws on the basis of gender identity.

Q: How can teachers engage with their students who are in class on March 8?
A: A group of teachers in the Stanford Education Program created these creative and thoughtful ideas for engaging children to teach them about A Day Without A Woman.

Uh oh...all you fucking white men need to look out; instead of things running at 100% efficiency, without all those pre-K teachers, typists, hair stylists and baristas you might be looking at like 96%...

Stay safe.

I have a feeling no change will be noticed today.

RE: Women's March on Washington
If these school boards and employers had any guts, they'd do what Reagan did and fire them all.

But I have a feeling this thing won't be as big as the unpersuasive shit-flinging in January.
