Did Michelle Obama not see the irony in delivering a speech on female emancipation to a school full of girls in headscarves in the Islamic Republic of Tower Hamlets?

Of all the schools in all the towns in all the world, why did Michelle Obama visit a girls’ school in the Islamic Republic of Tower Hamlets this week?

She says it was her own choice to make a speech on education at the Mulberry School for Girls. But was it?

I doubt the First Lady had ever heard of the school before this trip, and probably couldn’t point to Tower Hamlets on a map. My guess is that the venue was chosen deliberately by the Department for Education to showcase our new, rigorously enforced State religion: ‘Celebrating Diversity’.

  • I have one question for Michelle. Do you think it is appropriate for all women in Saudi Arabia to be required to wear the burka?

    And a second follow up. Would you want your daughters to wear it?

    Did she mention anything about the rape gangs and how they should take it, “on the chin” for Moh’s team?

  • Hard Little Machine

    No she did not. In fact sharia, FGM and oppression are statements OF empowerment to the progressive mind. I’m only shocked there wasn’t a public flogging or beheading or two. At least a little gang rape. Come on it’s Ramadan now, let’s celebrate.

    “Tower Hamlets” – She probably thought she was going there for breakfast.

    The only reason some of the women are allowed to further their education is…
    so that they can get into specific jobs in order to…
    help dismantle the West
    =Global Cali…fate
