Now: just today I hear via good ol' Auntie Beebs that some women in Turkey are protesting against moves to restrict their clothing choices even further: "further" given the extent to which they've already been restricted, hijabized, niqabized and burkazied. The call of these brace protesting women is something like "keep your hands off our clothes".
I wonder if their feminist sisters in the west will come to their support. Actually I wonder not. They won't. Because their support of Islam trumps their support of women. And their support for Islam why is that? Because Islam be poor and downtrodden. And brown. That trumps feminism in any totem pole of oppression.
So, we have here in reported by Assadolahi in the Gatestone Institute the insane, the sickmaking celebration of the hijab in Canada.
Trudeau marches along the road to the destruction of western civilisation. He's already said "Canada has no identity". Proudly, one must note.
