in response to reader comment: APPEASE THE ISLAMISTS

Submitted by blah (United States), Aug 31, 2009 at 13:22

this isn't 'nam. there are rules here, donny.

i'm not sure which muslim told you how to worship or how to dress, but i'll make a bet that you're pulling words out of your ***. the fact is the truly violent, disrespectful, authoritarian, mysoginist force in america is led by overzealous bigots like you.

let me simplify the matter of women's rights under islamic law in comparison to american culture (which, by the way, is the topic under discussion, not vague paranoid ramblings about future wars against iran) for you myopic talking heads. here's what you say:

OH NO! islamic women have to wear a bhurka, so all muslims clearly hate women's rights! they should be less backwards and take a lesson from more historically advanced nations like the United States of Kick***ery and Freedomness where women have the privelege of being able to choose wear they buy their thongs and bikinis! if a woman can't wear skimpy lingerie while she's making my sammich, then she clearly doesn't have rights...

just so that doesn't go over your heads, that was SARCASM, it's called a literary device. now you think that the savage "islamists" (since when can a diverse religious sect be classified under one term, anyway? how many of you know what the difference is between shia and sunni muslims?) are abusing women's right to wear whatever she wants. while it's true that the bhurka represents a repressive tool, you have no room to criticize that institutional inequality. hypocrisy is the biggest crime any of us could ever commit, especially when you're making moral claims. so please stop your preaching until you grow out of your own backwards cultural background...or get over the PTSD symptoms you picked up in 'nam.

Submitting....
