Women’s March Toward Islam?

Two stunning pieces everybody should read, as we come to terms with the women’s march, its roots, funding, architects, and extremist bedfellows:

[Note: Yes, I do realize most women marched spontaneously. That doesn’t change the funding, or ideological fuel, documented in the New York Times piece linked below.]

This:

“The entire coffee shop gasped in disbelief at the image of American women donning the headscarf.”

 

And this:

 “Women’s March” partners include the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which has not only deflected on issues of Islamic extremism post-9/11, but opposes Muslim reforms that would allow women to be prayer leaders and pray in the front of mosques, without wearing headscarves as symbols of chastity. Partners also include the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which wrongly designated Maajid Nawaz, a Muslim reformer, an “anti-Muslim extremist” in a biased report released before the election. The SPLC confirmed to me that Soros funded its “anti-Muslim extremists” report targeting Nawaz.”

    Thanks for sharing this insightful information. I was shocked to read the information in the NY Times article, linking the women’s march in DC to the Muslim Brotherhood. When I read it, I also realized that a lot of naive women attended the march, but I could not figure out what the mission was, and I wanted to understand that mission, because two people I hold near and dear attended…

    Ha! Now I have more to think about!

    A testament to the extraordinary power of mass media, who are largely on the same page, to create and manipulate reality, and an indictment of our educational system that can, in pig-through-the-python-style, cap and gown so many people apparently incapable of thinking or questioning. Madness. Funny thing, I think it was when Dubya was sleepin’ in Trump’s bed that I subscribed to MoveOn. I’ve always deleted the posts because they really don’t have any content. After reading these two articles, I decided to read today’s post. Yup, no content, no specific complaints about policy. When I unsubscribed, I let them know why (SB277). It’s bizarre to have some rallys showing boobs and others wearing head scarves. Bizarre!

    I don’t see a link to the NY Times article.
