40-Days A Slave: The Journey of an American Bubble Headed Idiot

White Girl Hijab Solidarity

Jessey Eagan

The video linked at the bottom is only a little over two and a half minutes out of your life, so it’s not as if I’m asking you to participate in snake handling or some other kind of “interfaith dialog”. Your payoffs will be manifest, but the biggies occur at the 5-second mark (picture of her and her family), and then the slot machine bells and whistles go off to the sound off falling coins at exactly the 1:06 mark when they are interviewing her Muslim “friend” about as to if she would reciprocate.

Oh yeah baby! You will just have to watch.

“Jessey Eagan is a Christian and a mother of two, who works as a children’s director at Imago Dei Church in Peoria, Illinois. This year during Lent, she decided to wear a hijab. She kept a diary of her experience in a blog called #40DaysOfHijab, which is sparkling a debate both in the Christian and Muslim community.

“I wanted to put myself in someone else’s shoes”, says Eagan who hopes her practice of solidarity and empathy with the Muslim community will foster interfaith dialogue.”

Extra linkage in case the embedded video goes all wonky, which it seems to have done immediately.

    Diversity is a dangerous religion.

      And so easily ensnares fools.
      If evil exists, then surely there are evil cultures, and if there are evil cultures, then why would you be wanting to accommodate and even emulate them?

      Finally, what kind of “Christian” dons the attire of an opposing theology that denigrates the divinity of your own beliefs?
      That family are just a bunch of new age goofs looking to latch onto anything that will give their empty and aimless lives structure, and through that, possible meaning.
      They should have taken up woodcarving.

        It’s a little too fast at the beginning but pause it and get a load of her husband. With that beard all he has to do is say them magic words and he’s one of them.
        I’m starting to suspect shenanigans.
        Like maybe this is a trial balloon so she can keep her job in the church if she converts.
        Or to set the stage for a lawsuit when she doesn’t get to keep her job.

        • Drunk_by_Noon

          Yes, it could very well be any of those things. I notice her Muslimia controller/friend is close at hand.

        • Mal

          Check.
          Plus, I’m never sympatico about whites with dreads. An arsehole-giveaway, generally. That first clip of her without the scarf, and weirdy-beardy says it all.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Whites with dreads.
            Nothing says self loathing white person like culturally appropriating Jamaican culture.

          • Mal

            Unless it’s Graham Gouldman doing “Dreadlock Holiday”; and then it’s just a hoot!

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            I’ll have to check that out.
            Is it one of those novelty songs from the seventies like Ah Shaddapayouface?

          • Mal

            Graham Gouldman and Eric Stewart from 10CC wrote it after a few incidents Stewart had with Justin Hayward on holiday in Barbados. They just moved the location to sunny Jamaica.
            Of course there were no arseholes whining about cultural misappropriation then. Not that I noticed, anyway.

          How does a person notable only for being average make a statement?

      • Una Salus

        When the Islamic Jesus comes back to break the cross hopefully he’ll also set fire to her hijab.

      Here’s her silly blog,

      See, my husband is switching organizations and will be working with the Isaac Ishmael Initiative. Their vision is to promote peace between Jews, Muslims, and Christians, and engaging in interfaith dialogue.

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        I don’t like George Thorogood’s music.
        I find it unoriginal.
        One exception is the song Get a Haircut (And Get a Real Job).

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Call me naive, but what are the major conflicts between Christanity and Judiasm these days.
        I mean to the point where they need “peace makers” like that clown?

        • Frau Katze

          Yep, I think it’s the “Muslim problem.”

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Me too!
            In fact, I think without the Muslim problem, they might just have permanent peace in the Middle East, and just between Israel and her neighbors.

            Because fuck like rabbits on a patch of sand is an evolutionary strategy.

        • Here’s a nice little exchange I had on the #AskHamas hashtag. (Oh yeah? Well how about you get a life!)

            I know what he means.
            I get all of my knowledge from Warner Bros. cartoons from the early 1950’s.
            Does he know that “The Merchant of Venice” wasn’t a documentary?
            How can anyone be that flaming stupid?
            Just how?
            Tell me. I demand an answer.
            Now.
            How is it physically possible?

          • ‘…”The Merchant of Venice” wasn’t a documentary?’

            The Merchant of Vince may have been though.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            I was being kind in glossing over what I considered an obvious typo.
            Perhaps he meant “My Cousin Vinnie”?
            An equal, in entertainment value, to anything Shakespeare penned.

          • S/he wrote it that way in both tweets.

    Try doing a #40DaysOfTichel and show your solidarity with Jewish woman. Then try sitting with your Muslim girlfriend. lol

      She’d need a stab-proof hijab that day.
      That is a great point!

          For those unfamiliar with the “Cat and Mouse Act” (referenced by that poster) read up on it, it’s quite funny.
          Suffergettes on hunger strike in His Majesty’s jails (we are talking England here) would be released. Then when their health improved, they would be re-arrested in order to serve the remainder of their sentences.

    Did you get a look at the husband right at the beginning of the video? Effing pathetic.

    She might be Christian she might not, In the past any attempts, by our Church, to start interfaith dialog with Muslims apart from amadayas whom nobody seems to like was either ignored or refused,
    They were happy to come if they could try to convert.
    we have had good respectful dialogs with the local Sikh and Jewish temples but no interest from Muslims at all.
    As for her, she has those filthy looking white Rasta dreadlocks that have weird stuff living in them plus the “old man” looks like he has fallen out of a early 70s freak brothers comic. Burkas for both would be a civic cleanup job.

    Dialogue can only take place in a spirit of reciprocity. If her Muslim friend were to abstain from wearing a hijab for 40 days, then a real exchange would’ve taken place.

    So she’s an idiot.
