The Liberal Feminist Defense Of The Hijab And Burka Proves Their Hypocrisy

This post is taken from my other blog and does not bear directly on the issue of abortion, but indirectly as this is another example where feminists support something that harms women. It does, however, give a good insight into the kind of things Liberal feminists support. Things that are actually anti-woman, like supporting a woman's oppression by Islam when she wears a Hijab or Burka:

Apparently American feminists would rather support President Obama's appeasement of radical Islam's enslavement of women than support taking a stand against the Hijab and Burka. Here is a link to a video of women defending the wearing of such oppressive attire.

"Banning the burqa doesn't further women's rights - it limits them. Now, obviously there's a difference in Islamic women's dress from the hijab to the burqa - but legally banning any of them erases all agency from Muslim women. (I'm especially wary of Sarkozy's comments and this potential ban given that France banned headscarves from public schools in 2004.)"

And from feministe:

"Outlawing the burqa won’t make women who cover themselves decide to walk outside in a sundress; it’ll just mean that women and girls won’t leave the home as much. The women who are supposedly victimized and imprisoned by some pieces of cloth will instead be prisoners in their own homes and communities."

A truly unbelievable statement by a Liberal feminist. This example epitomizes what is wrong with Liberalism, Liberals would rather appease, accommodate and find common ground with those who will seek to oppress them after power is handed over.

Maybe this girl, in a burka, was not victimized:

And some videos:

Sad how this is justified:

The only response to this is a call to repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the exclusive Savior of mankind.

"We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one. We know also that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. And we are in him who is true—even in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.

Dear children, keep yourselves from idols." 1 John 5:19-21
