Australia: Feminists ignore shocking report about FGM, march against Trump instead

Claire LehmannAustralian Contributor

On Monday night this week a shouting match erupted on Australian TV, between an Australian Senator, Jacqui Lambie and a Muslim activist, Yassmin Abdel-Magied. 

The media site Junkee followed up by releasing a video by Abdel-Magied titled “WTF is Sharia anyway?” where a complete whitewashing of sharia law was presented to a young Australian audience.

Now, what’s interesting about this episode is that Jacqui Lambie has been roundly attacked for being “racist”, while the Abdel-Magied’s nonsensical claims that Sharia is not a system of law, and that Islam is the most feminist religion have been taken seriously.

And there has been little feminist response.

Feminism is huge in Australia. Our former Prime Minister Tony Abbott was ridiculed for winking about a woman during a radio interview a couple of years ago. There were thousands of outraged tweets in response to this wink. So you would think that there might be some feminist response to the claim that Islam is a feminist religion.

A recent report was released on the prevalence of Female Genital Mutilation in Australia. It showed that the practice was more common than previously thought. And girls suffering from it require complex medical care in our hospitals.

There were no marches in streets. There weren’t any feminist columns or op-eds about it in our media.

However we did have a Women’s March in Sydney in response to Donald Trump’s election.

This double standard is rarely acknowledged but it has insidious consequences, particularly when the safety of girls and women is ignored.

We obviously saw this in Rothertham, UK. And we saw it in Cologne, Germany. And we are likely to see it again if privileged Westerners continue to bury their heads in the sand.

Art Vandelay i understand where you are coming from, but we need to be men, if it was Wynne or Justins wife or some media party hag, i would agree, if it was some random woman , i would interfere, it would be worth going to jail to make a point and to mess up some terrorists face.

Edward Jobin they would never watch an actual video of it, they need to stay in a state of denial.

David White; Watched your vid from 12 hrs. ago. Sickening sack of shit. He needs to be taken on a twilight tour.

I had no idea that Trump is for FGM. I thought he just grabbed them, not mutilated them. And to think that I wrote in his name for alderman… what a waste of a vote.

Ya – all you chicken shit, limp dicked people who call yourselves men – go ahead and walk away! You’re all just a bunch of phoney faggots like this Cameron dickwad!
It’s time men be men and we take care of our woman folk – and deal the ending blow right there & then – f**k the governments & police – they are your oppressors just like the lslamic barbarians! It’s time these lunatics are rendered useless in court – they use every Taqiyya trick known to man and our useless dickwads in the police & governments swallow every piece of crap they get there ears on. Except for the righteous truth.
It’s time to not only casterate these lslamic pricks – but destroy them like the rabid dogs they are.
And all you feminist bitches out there – go f**k yourself you useless stinky, skanky c**ts! You deserve the FGM you’ about to receive – keep your ignorant mouthed shout about President Trump – him & the rest of us real men despise your stink!

Claire – that was great reporting – glad to hear from Australia!

Art Vandelay
Very good , walk away, and that kind of action is the same as casting a blind eye to savagery. Guaranteed if everyone did that we can count on attacks becoming more frequent. They sexually assaulted women in a massive coordinated action in Germany, the police were there, it did not stop it because the police cast a blind eye and did their best to cover up the crimes. Action by individuals would be the best protection. They have, in Europe tested the male populations resolve and they have found that they can sexually assault their women and children and the men will surrender their position as the protectors. So, such barbarity is sure to continue as there is no opposition from the government, the police or the men. Don’t rely too heavily on facts such as, “my wife doesn’t venture out alone in the dark”, that’s far from a guarantee that she will be safe. If your wife were being assaulted and another male citizen were to witness what was occurring, I assume dialing 911 meets with your approval. Remember when seconds count, the police are just minutes away. Your wife could be raped, seriously wounded or dead.

@cameron Robock, could you please point me to the “real” media which corroborates your claim of her? I can’t find any quote from her that even resembles what you’ve claimed.
commented 2017-02-21 19:39:05 -0500
She is racist. She still says a black and white mixed child still should be killed as it’s an abomination to god. This is a quote from her. So rebel"fake" media. Supports her… great lack of morals.

Ref Art Vandelay; I’m not sure I could just walk away, but especially in these PC times, I can see where you’re coming from. I completely agree that trying to be a hero will almost certainly get you put inside if the perp is a mohammedan and you give him a righteous thumping. If something doesn’t get done by these cultural marxist governments (Sadly,ours is included) to start putting the hammer to these savages you’re going to get vigilantism. There is no “fascist” or “neo-nazi” racist group in Canada that is a credible threat public order at this time. (plenty of leftoid ones though) Lock up a couple of regular joes for beating up or killing rapists and watch some extreme-right groups become mainstream. That is not a future I look forward to. I don’t want to live in Wiemar (or current day for that matter) Germany.

Ironic how Australia is so anti Trump but will not take in any refugees on boats.
commented 2017-02-21 17:12:27 -0500
I told my wife that if I saw a woman being assaulted by a muslim man I would call 911 and walk away. She understood completely. I was never asked about this, I never cast a vote for this, I have no responsibility for this. That and the fact there have been incidents in Europe where women have been assaulted and refused to cooperate with police to somehow be PC. If I were to intervene there would be a good chance the lady would lie and i’d be the one in hand cuffs. So, you’re on your own ladies, good luck. My wife rarely, if ever, goes anywhere public after dark without me so I suggest you get hitched or start staying in at night. Guys, you seriously are taking a big risk if you want to be a hero.

SJW, feminists, lefties, liberals…………..whatever name they use are all hypocrites and hold double standards on most things that govern their lives. I say it again, if it was not for their vanity there would not be any Political Correctness.

David,

That is one sick puppy laying it on like that to a child.
Sick puppies need to be put down . . . No questions asked. There is video proof.

And these women say Trump is crazy?

Thanks for the read Liza….When they marry them off at 9 what would be the point? Unless they don’t want dad to break them in early. Earth to Justin….“barbaric”????

Just watched the noon cbc news. We are officially in an alternate universe. They should be muted and no wonder the lemmings are so stupid and brain washed and brain dead. The bs is deep and the propoganda is thick. Let the good times roll.

Ever notice how many women who are able to break away and try to tell us the horrors of Islam are treated? The clueless “welcomers” in the west will get their due. Why do we have to get stuck with the manure pile to come.

Claire is fast becoming my favourite contributor. But i wish she would have made a longer video and expanded on this. Because the lunacy doesn’t stop their. Islam hides behind multiculturalism and freedom of religion, but seeks to destroy both of those things. And muslim clerics make no bones about telling us this. When white/westerners flirt with ideology this dangerous; the reaction is swift. Lawyers, cops and solders move in to crush them under the government boot. Whats taking so long?

The Feminists and Muslims are aligned because they share a common enemy . You and me.

Well, for those women that wish to believe that Sharia is a feminist religion, then they should go live for a few years, say about 10 years, in a Sharia governed country.

Then let’s see after that time if they still feel they had the same rights and privileges there as they do in a Western society now.

I think that would shut up those feminists. Many times experience is the best teacher … and eye opener!

If Trudeau is an example of a feminist would Rosie O,Donnell be an example of a masculinist?
commented 2017-02-21 13:09:26 -0500
The feminists are just useful idiots for the advancement of Islam in Oz society. They’re blinded by their dogma and hatred for Trump. I don’t know where it’s all going to lead as the ball-less politicians seem content to let them take over in the name of multiculturalism. Of course the vile MSM does nothing to rally opposition to the barbaric practices that are being thrust on Australia.

Edward Jobin commented
“I don’t mean to be gross but I don’t think any of these people will even begin to comprehend the devastation of FGM until they see it happen. (videos)”

Exactly.

This is proof positive that “Feminism” has been thoroughly hi-jacked. Once upon a time feminists (Suffragettes) fought the injustices facing women. Now these modern alleged feminists throw women under the bus at every opportunity. The real true feminists are rolling in their graves.
