Think Islamic Women Have The Right to be Seen and Heard? You're Racist!
by Lisa Richards
Left-wing lock-steppers believe it's racist to demand Islamic women not be covered from head-to-toe in burqas. Banning the subjective Islamic garb that covers women completely, so they're never seen nor heard, is abject discrimination. If you think Islamic women have the right to be uncovered, and want the burqa banned, you're an Islamophobe.
The left-wing rag Green Left defends the Islamic shrouding of women as beautifully liberating. Their latest column titled "The Burqa: Reject the Fake 'Feminism' of the Right," calls those saying no to the burqa a bunch of "right-wing" "fake feminists."
Pro-burqa protests began when Australian artist Sergio Redegalli painted a giant mural in Sidney with the words "Say no to burqas." Redegalli's mural sparked outrage, activists deemed him racist for suggesting Islamic women should never be covered, rather free of clothing shrouding women, preventing them from being liberated human beings.
