Dr. Pies,

Our clueless Lefties and the big Tech companies, believe that "Wearing a hijab by a woman is empowering and it is a personal choice and it is cool and chic, and anyone that disagrees is an Islamophobe." Which according to their logic, would mean that Iranian women must be Islamophobes!!

Instagram is censoring a video of Iranian women burning hijabs, and declaring that this is a "sensitive subject."

Check this:


And check this reporter for the NYT, and he tells the reader that this uprising is a response to the economic sanctions and the nuclear deal, and he is, and you guessed it, blaming President Trump! Oh he forgot to blame Israel too. No I'm not joking.

Notice that he does not call it: Hijab. He calls it: Headscarf which it is not.

Dear readers: You think we should tell him that the women of Iran are grieving for the murder of Mahsa Amini (by the so called thugs of the so called Morality Police) and they do not want to be told how to dress and they have no like for being forced to wear "headscarves" I mean "hijabs"?

And more evidence that the legacy media will be a thing of the past, and big tech will not be far behind.
