Margaret Atwood says rise of Trump has made The Handmaid’s Tale popular again
Atwood told Reuters during an interview at Cuba’s international book fair: “When it first came out it was viewed as being farfetched. However when I wrote it I was making sure I wasn’t putting anything into it that human beings had not already done somewhere at sometime.
“You are seeing a bubbling up of it now. It’s back to 17th century puritan values of New England at that time in which women were pretty low on the hierarchy.”
Margaret, you’re in Cuba you idiot, they persecute homosexuals there, and the closest thing to the Handmaid’s Tale ever coming true is to be found within Islam about which you maintain a willful, guilty silence.
