Upside-down Down Under

Here’s a riddle for our politically twisted times: when is a black woman a white supremacist? Answer: when she speaks out against female genital mutilation, sharia law, and jihadism.

This is the tortured logic of the feminist Left in Australia, which helped stop a lecture tour by the human rights advocate Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Anonymous protestors warned venues and insurers not to have dealings with the Somali-born, anti-radical-Islam activist if they wanted to avoid “trouble.” The “Council for the Prevention of Islamophobia, Inc.” accused Hirsi Ali of being part of the “Islamophobia industry . . . that exists to dehumanize Muslim women.” Another group, “Persons of Interest,” took to Facebook to describe her ideas: “This is the language of patriarchy and misogyny. This is the language of white supremacy. This is the language used to justify war and genocide.”

    It’s so easy to throw their own crap back in their faces, I don’t know why it’s not done more often. They say Ayaan Hirsi Ali is speaking “the language of patriarchy and misogyny” and “white supremacy”, I say they are speaking the language of totalitarianism. Hell, you can pretty much always accuse leftists of that, because they pretty much always are.

    She’s also a ‘bad’ atheist; not a good one like Marx.
