United Airlines Leggings Controversy Demonstrates Why Today’s Feminists Do Not Really Believe in Equal Rights or Equality at All

leggings.jpg

It has probably been about four decades since the average women’s activist was doing valuable work for society. The recent United Airlines leggings controversy demonstrates why today’s feminists do not really believe in equal rights or equality at all.

On March 19 two young girls were barred from boarding a United Airlines flight because they were wearing leggings. Feminist were outraged. Their collective opinion could best be summed up as: ”How dare anyone tell any woman what she can and cannot wear!”

It turned out the two girls were just children. However, the incident became a “story” before their age was known and so their being so young is irrelevant to the points I make below.

When a grown woman wears leggings without a dress, top or jacket that goes below the bottom of her behind she is concealing little more of the lower half of her body than would be the case if she were wearing just body paint. In fact, the impression a straight man is left with when he sees such a woman walking down the street is close to the same as if that same woman was naked from below the waist.

Feminists have long railed against men objectifying women as sex objects. However, when a woman wears leggings without a covering such as that described above she is purposefully displaying herself as a sex object and objectifying herself as a sex object.

The fact that feminists have no problem with women wearing leggings with nothing covering them demonstrates that they want women to be free from being considered sex objects when it is a detriment to them but still think it is acceptable for a woman to present herself in public as a sex object whenever she feels it is beneficial for her to do so. It is double standards like this that permeate feminism.

Need other examples? Feminists have no problem with the fact that in the US women are exempt from the draft and those women who serve in the military are almost never placed in a position where they might get killed or maimed. They are not at all bothered that when a childless couple gets divorced the women has the option of sitting home and forcing her ex-husband to pay her bills for several years. Feminists think that in a he said she said situation where a woman makes a rape allegation against a man she should be believed and the man should be publicly identified even if there is absolutely no evidence to support her claim. They think it is just great that men fill all the most dangerous jobs in society and are killed and injured at work at rates that are astronomical in comparison with women. I could go on and on.

Feminist do not want equality and equal rights. What they want is special and privileged rights and treatment for women.

Encounter with a Street Person on St. Patrick’s Day

Saint_Patrick's_Day_2011.jpg

Homeless people have become wise to the fact that those of us who are not rubes realize that any money that they are handed on the street is used to purchase drugs and/or alcohol. The homeless live for free in shelters, eat for free in soup kitchens and have no place to store possessions so what else would they do with their money? The fact that most of us are on to them is why they try so hard to work some angle intended to deceive us into thinking that if we dump some currency in their cup it will go to some good purpose.

Last St. Patrick’s Day I was hit with a noteworthy and perhaps highly unusual pitch from a man begging just outside a train station. As I waited in a group of about fifteen commuters for a walk sign to beam its white message of safe egress in the shape of a pedestrian to us all he proclaimed: “Can you spare some money for an Irishman so he can get drunk on St. Patrick’s Day?” I gave him points for honesty and creativity but not enough to motivate me to hand over my hard-earned cash to him.

If you wish to do something kind for the homeless give some money to charity rather than directly to a street person.

The Muslim World Must Clean Its Own House

vigilance-committee notice 1.jpg

In the American Old West, when there was a bad person or people in an area that the law either could not or would not deal with, the local respectable citizens would meet in secret and form a vigilance committee. They would then vote on a resolution to drive the trouble maker[s] away. If the motion passed, a public notice would be drawn up and posted warning the undesirable man/men that he or they had twenty-four hours to vacate the area or be forcibly removed. If the warning went unheeded, the vigilance committee would arm themselves, visit the bad man/men and offer the choice of leaving or being killed. This and the threat of death if the person or people ever returned was very often enough to solve the problem.

Why is this same sort of thing not happening in the Muslim world? Why are members of the Muslim faith not cleaning house just as the good people of the American West once did? We read all the time about the large number of Muslims who abhor terrorism. How come they are not driving out the bad apples? If their numbers are so large, they should have no trouble ridding their communities of violent extremists.

Terrorists are insurgents. History teaches us that insurgents cannot operate without support from the non-insurgent people they live amongst. The numbers of Muslims who reside in predominant Muslim areas who, while not actively engaged in terrorism, are in sympathy with them, must be very high indeed. If it were not, the terrorists simply would be able to operate.

What Everyone Should Know About Islam

9-11.jpg

It can be difficult to sort through the many distortions and outright lies that are proffered concerning the Islamic faith and Muslims. Read on for everything you should know about Islam and Muslims.

Christian Fundamentalists and Muslim Fundamentalists

ISIS Paris attacker.jpg

It was in the 1980s that the left cast Christian Fundamentalists as the boogeymen of the “fly over states.” If one were to play a game of word association with the average American, what she or he would most likely associate with Christian Fundamentalists is a literal interpretation of the Bible. As I wrote in another piece on this blog: Few realize that “100% of the planet’s faithful Muslims believe every word of the Koran was dictated by God to Muhammad and therefore believe the Koran is the literal word of God.” If we define fundamentalists as those who believe in a literal interpretation of a holy book, 100% of devote Muslims are fundamentalists.

Why Muslim Belief Koran is the Literal Word of God Matters so Much

The Koran is full violent, extremist rhetoric and general intolerance of non-Muslims. Some have tried to equate passages in the Koran to those of the Old Testament (or Tora) and Christian Bible. The comparison is flawed. The number of Christians or Jews who commit terrorist acts and claim to be inspired by their holy books is statistically insignificant. It is no coincidence, therefore, that only a small minority of the world’s Christians and Jews interpret their holy books literally. In a matter of speaking, Islamofascism and Muslim terrorism are perfectly understandable in terms of the text of the Koran and the belief of devote Muslims that it represents the literal word of God.

Percentage of World’s Muslims that Support Terrorism

terrorist.jpg
Many have gone to great pains to point out that the percentage of the world’s Islamic population that supports terrorism is not great. This is accurate. However, because the world population of Muslims is enormous, the number who does is actually very large. In fact it is downright frightening.

Hitler, Islam and the Jewish People

hitler grand mufte.jpg
In the Second World War, Adolf Hitler and the Muslim world were allies. Islamic clerics desired Hitler’s Final Solution to be visited upon Middle East. When the Third Reich collapsed, a number of important Nazi’s escaped there. Some trained the initial wave of Muslim terrorists the tactics of terror perfected by “elite” Nazi units in the final phase of World War II. The Islamic terrorists of recent times are the successors of these murders. In the Arab world, Mein Kampf has always been a bestselling book.

What Muslims Believe

SanB terr.jpg

The topic of what Muslims do and do not believe has been much debated. Some have even tried to brand Islamic terrorists as “non-Muslims.” It is important to remember that Islam has no Pope or Vatican. To borrow Al Gore’s infamous phrase, it has “no central controlling legal authority.” This means that there is not a single answer to the question of what Muslims do and do not believe. It all depends on the individual Muslim and the particular Muslim holy man the individual Muslim follows. The simple fact of the matter is that there are a lot of Muslim clerics and Muslims who believe in terrorism.

Do not listen to the nonsense from the apologists. All you need to know is that mentioned above.

Some Questions for those Who Recently Tweeted Out #IAmAMuslimToo

gays off roof.jpg

I have some questions for all of you who tweeted out #IAmAMuslimToo recently:

Do you throw gays off roofs?

Do you believe in forced female circumcision?

Do you believe women are second-class citizens?

Do you believe that girls who go to school should have acid thrown in their faces?

Do you believe all Jewish people should be killed?

Do you believe in honor killings?

Do you believe Israel has no right to exists?

Do those of you who are women believe that your father/brother/husband has the right to beat you?

I realize that not all Muslims believe in these things but a heck if a lot of Muslims do and that is my point. My critics will say  it is just a small percentage of the whole. This is true. However, because the world population of Muslims is so large, the numbers are actually huge.

For additional posts I have made that touch upon the Muslim faith see: The Nazis and Islam, A Review of Episode Five (“Babylon”) of the Return Run of “The X-Files” (Some Spoilers are Revealed Below), Why Benghazi Matters and Should be a Difference Maker and Some Thoughts on The Man in the High Castle (No Major Spoilers are Revealed Below.)

A Quick Take on Trans Bathroom Access: An Example of How Liberals Put Our Safety in Danger

IMG_2215.JPG

The other day I took my young child for lunch at IHOP. My wife stayed home. She needed some “me time.”

After the two of us finished eating, my daughter had to use the bathroom. I live in a Liberal state with trans-friendly bathroom access laws. When she went in to the restroom I had to stand outside the door and hope there was not a male pervert inside waiting for her.

Back when we as a nation were more sane, it was a crime for a man to be in women’s room for any reason. Any man caught in a women’s bathroom was arrested unless he had a very good explanation for being there.

As the law now stands in my home state, any pervert man can go into a women’s room and if he is questioned by the police can escape arrest and prosecution by simply stating that he “identifies” as a woman. The problem with this is that there is no such thing as a trans identity card, there is no legal definition of what constitutes a trans person and the Left believes that the gender a person “identifies” with can literally, justifiably and understandably change from one minute to the next. Any male pervert who chooses can lurk in a women’s room and pose as a trans person if the police are called. (He does not have to even dress as a woman.)

When a father cannot enjoy a day out with his daughter without worrying about things such as this we are truly living in a world turned upside down. I hate those who have put my child’s safely in danger. There was a time when I just disagreed with such people. Now I hate them.

Stats Prove Black Lives Matter Movement is a Lie

black lives matter1.jpg

All reasonable and informed people know that the  “Hands Up Don’t Shoot” refrain Is best described as one of the creation myths of the Black Lives Matter movement. What about the argument that has grown the movement to the point at which seemingly every Democrat supports it? Are African Americans being gunned down by police is vastly disproportionate numbers and is the explanation for this white racism? Statistics prove the answer  is no.

The Washington Post maintains an online database of people in America who have been shot and killed by police in 2016. As of the morning on September 23, 2016, 173 of 707 total deaths have been African American. This means that 24% of those who lost their lives are black. African Americans constitute 13% of the U.S. population. The 24% figure therefore cannot be considered vastly disproportionate.

How can we account for the 11% differential. Is white racism to blame? FBI crime statistics prove that African Americans commit well 50% of serious crime in the nation. (Here we have a true vastly disproportionate number.) Since blacks represent only 13% of the populace, it means there is a great deal of per capita criminality in the African American community. Since people who commit crimes have more encounters with police, and therefore a greater chance of being shot by the police, the 24% figure actually seems lower than what one would expect.

Law enforcement is, of course, well aware that crime is rampant in many African American dominated neighborhoods. It is as a consequence that police presence in such neighborhoods is much higher than in many areas in which blacks are in the minority. A large number of police patrolling African American neighborhoods means more interactions between blacks and police and is another reason for there to be an increased chance of blacks being shot by the police. This is another fact that moves one to see the 24% number as surprisingly small.

Another explanation for the 11% is cultural. Even a cursory examination of video evidence available on the Web uncovers the fact that a significant percentage of black Americans do not seem to realize that it is against the law to disobey a lawful order from a police officer. To few African Americans appear to understand that they must comply with any directive issued by a police officer as along as doing so does not force them to break the law and the failure to do so immediately makes them guilty of disorderly conduct and subject to lawful arrest. Rather than comply with police officers instructions, blacks many times adopt a combative attitude in encounters with law enforcement officers. If one goes looking for a fight with a policeman or policewoman she or he is likely to find it. Serious conflicts can easily turn violent and any violent confrontation with law enforcement has the potential to turn into a deadly shooting.

In both total number killed and percentage of the whole, the numbers for African Americans of those shot and killed by police so far this year represents an improvement over last year. Yet Black Lives Matter activists continue to tell  us that blacks are being “hunted down” by police and are justifiably afraid to walk down the street. Rhetoric like that spouted by the Black Lives Matter movement, which reflects the belief erroneous that most police are racists and out to get them, only serves to fuel the hostility African Americans feel and express toward law enforcement and therefore puts blacks at a greater risk of being shot by police. If the members of the Black Lives Matter movement truly cared about black lives, they would be concentrating their efforts on reforming the African American community in such a way as to make it more law abiding, raise public awareness within the community about the legal obligation to comply with the directives of police officers and combat the fallacious narrative that police are the enemies of African Americans.
