The Left pretends to care about “The Handmaid’s Tale” coming true — but it’s already here, and they’re silent

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Why does the left — especially in the United States, but I think it’s percolating up here in Canada and over in the UK too — why does the left keep dressing up as characters from that dystopian novel by Margaret Atwood, called The Handmaid’s Tale?

It’s become a symbolic way of saying: You’re a sexist who would want to make women live as sexual slaves in a Christian theocracy.

Except sexual slavery isn’t a Christian concept; Christianity’s moral arc has been towards the protection of women. Compare that to the Koran’s permission to take rape slaves from conquered people, for example.

Margaret Atwood, the Canadian socialist, wrote The Handmaid’s Tale in the wake of the Iranian revolution, when women were forced to wear face-obscuring veils. But she lacked the courage to take on Islam — or maybe she, like many other leftists, who hate the west, always side with its enemies, whether they were the Soviets in the Cold War, or the Islamists today.

Instead, The Handmaid’s Tale demonizes Christianity. This work of fiction has also been weaponized against Trump, to imply we’re just moments away from the novel's dystopian future here in North America, if Trump gets his way.

Meanwhile, evidence of real life theocracy isn't hard to come by...

Quebec has responded by electing a new government, in no small part on the strength of their call to ban many religious symbols, including ostentatious Islamic symbols like the chador, hijab and niqab, from civil service.

What a tiny law — it only applies to a handful of people, government employees, at most. The Globe and Mail hates that law, but of course they also hate Christianity in the public square, whether it’s on a flag, or a coat of arms or in our Constitution:

Globe editorial: By defending a crucifix, Quebec crosses the line into hypocrisy

The crucifix, a spokesman argued, is nothing but a “heritage object” that is “part of our history” and, as such, it should not be included in the larger argument about religious symbols in the public sphere.

I’d agree if we were living in Saudi Arabia or Iran. But this is Canada, and the history of our country, indeed our civilization, is Christian. The word "Catholic" appears in the Quebec constitution four times. Others are welcome to join us. But that doesn’t undo who we are, or our history or our culture or our past.

The Globe and the Trudeau Liberals want that past undone, but the people seem to disagree:

A recent poll asks if the niqab should be prohibited; discouraged but tolerated; or welcome.

Nationwide, 48 per cent say ban the niqab, and 29 per cent say discourage it. Only 23 per cent say welcome it.

In Quebec, 70 per cent want it banned; 72 per cent of Ontarians agree, along with 78 per cent of Albertans.

Who will be the next politician who realizes the obvious fact:

Respecting Canada’s traditions of secularism and the equality of men and women will give you huge support on election day, no matter what the Media Party thinks?

NEXT: We're hearing a lot about those pipe bombs being sent to Democratic politicians and other well known people on the left. But what's really going on? I'm joined to talk about this by Joel Pollak of Breitbart.com

“Slavery is part of jihad, and jihad will remain as long as there is Islam.”

Religious authority Sheik Saleh Al Fawzan.

His books are used to teach millions of Muslims around the world. Slavery is not a Canadian value, is it?? Yet!!!

The hijab and niqab should be as legal here as they are in France. Better yet, the hijab and niqab should be as legal here as they are in Egypt (outlawed since 1958 I believe).

Ron, both the Mississauga and Toronto races were fixed. One small thing to point out is that we are supposed to believe that Tory got more votes in Fordnation ridings than Ford did? I doubt it. Not to mention the glitches in the machines, voters on the outside of locked doors, ballots sitting around in cardboard boxes while computers were down…..and then there was the character assassination, un personing, de platforming and bannings. I’d say the old guard were a shoe on for a reason. I’m not sure you can blame the voter this time.
“There is no guarantee that their will even be another election”
I would add, or another fair one.

Allan Peterson commented, " Ron, it is funny how “conservative” leftists can be. They don’t want to change anything that would avoid the train wreck that is coming."

Yes Allan, but what I don’t get is that the advancing Train Wreck is so obvious; Look at Mississauga, the prayer " The Our Father " is banned in Public Schools. OK, no big deal, except the same school takes away the students Science Lab on Fridays to allow Muslims to Pray. God only knows what they pray for?
It wouldn’t be necessary for the parents to have a high IQ to figure out that something is wrong.
What about the local and MSM ? This should be front page news. Mississauga’s population is 725,000 people; there must be someone who can figure out that there is a problem?

Keith Barnes—-If Justin follows through…………………..

There is no guarantee that their will even be another election, Trudeau is quite capable of declaring a state of emergency, for whatever reason, and carrying on with his Dictatorship. He has already stated that he is going to allow all Muslims to vote, even those registered as refugees.

Canada is in the hands of a retard with delusions of grandeur. A dangerous situation for all real Canadians.

Islam is an evil ass backward’s dehumanizing theocracy regressively caught in the stone age . It has contrbuted nothing to the betterment of the human race and is just one of the tools shamelessly being used against us to usher in the new world order .

I guess we can’t be too hard on Atwood Society.
The top three female writers in history didn’t really achieve very much next to Mary Shelly, who invented Science fiction and several plains of conflict within stories.
There is Virginia Woolfe too, who used a stream of consciousness as a type of conflict but its debateable she invented it.
Then Jane Austin who had the moral compass of a twit. Her best piece of feminism was Pride & Prejudice.
Ayn Rand was a nagger.
Again, there isn’t much to show for in female literature.
That’s not about to change with the Handmaid’s Tale by a long shot.

In the meantime I will continue to court Bernier, however I am getting the feeling that Canadians are too Politically STUPID to pick up on his Country saving policies; much like the Toronto and Mississauga voters didn’t go for newer and smarter blood.

Keith Barnes—-If Justin follows through with a forced Carbon Tax on 4 Provinces and an Increase CT on the other Provinces, Canada may be saved from another 4 years of Islamic growth led by Justin. Just let Justin kill himself like Stephen Dion did. Leave him alone.

God only helps those who try to help themselves and it would appear that it is time for Canadians to do just that. If we do nothing our chances of survival are nil. The creep of Islam is at our front door and we need to confront it and stop it, for if we do nothing Islam will win. The choice is ours.

In my opinion a good start would be to stop the PM’s intention of allowing refugees to vote, even with ID, they will vote at least four times each and who is going to stop them, the little old lady at the voting booth? We need a definite ruling, ‘No Muslims’. The chances of Trudeau winning the next election, without the Muslim vote are very slim.

Once Trudeau is gone we can start to organize our withdrawal from the United Nations, a corrupt Muslim controlled political club for Marxist despots who want the white man dead.

We must make sure that ‘new’ Prime Minister Bernier enacts a law that will forbid anybody of the Trudeau bloodline to ever sit in Parliament, again.

PAUL MCCULLOUGH , I agree with you about the distinct possibility, given the track record of the left that this is a false flag. With regards to your comment, "They see Islam as a means to get power. " I would add, and visa versa. However, the left had better watch their back when Islam is done with them (which will be when their numbers are at optimum levels to close the deal on North Americanistan.)

I agree Liza Rosie,
Its time to stop taking the Left’s sympathy bait and stay on topic.
All they want you to do is hate yourself for something you had no hand in. Time to grow up and move on from being baited like that.
I like your comments lately Liza Rosie.

So awesome that Andrew Lawton could tell the British public what their press were really saying behind the scenes. The whole trip sounds and looks like it was a huge success in every way. I can’t wait for the next chapter. How is the judicial system going to save face here.

If any of these leftist moronic hypocrites landed in any Islamic country they would be killed or enslaved in a burka instantly …..they are only used as willing useful idiots in western countries to work against Christianity …..and the destruction of the West. Their idiotic weak and cowardly hypocrisy like Atwood’s is fathomless. They can only direct their PC outrage towards white Christian culture. Every other religion or belief system (as long as it meets the criteria of being non white) gets a free pass and receives automatic victim status no matter how evil it is towards woman and girls ……like I said the hypocrisy is sickening and fathomless

- The left pretends to care about “The Handmaid’s Tale” because they love to project their failings onto others. The left & Islam go together quite well. The left pretends to care about people. They use people as a means to get the only thing they do love, power. People are just something they use to get that power. They see Islam as a means to get power.

- “Trump is Hitler & his followers are Nazis” – “Trump called us fake news & is causing divisiveness & unrest”. The fakestream news media is destroying what little credibility they may have had left. So we’ve seen the character assassination of Kavanaugh, based on no evidence, for political gain. We saw violent Democrat mobs. We saw a massive caravan that we’re supposed to believe just organized itself spontaneously & started marching hundreds of miles to the US in time for the midterms. This has caused the Democrats to lose support, not gain support. Is it really too far fetched that they would come up with a false flag. Keep in mind that Donald Trump Jr.’s wife was hospitalized after a letter bomb went off containing white powder. The fakestream media spent almost no time on this. The timing of this latest bomb hoax leads me to believe that it being a false flag is very possible.

Why do Republicans continue to blame themselves almost before the left does. This is a Democrat distraction from what is happening on the border. They know the Republicans will turn themselves inside out analysing and denouncing.

Countries that have banned the burka.
Even Merkel is advocating for it now.

If I wanted to see women covered and oppressed this way, I would live in an Islamic country. Canada must not give an inch to sharia. Covered women is sharia law, the law of political Islam. It is not a religious prerequisite, it is cultural and we should give it no place in the west. Just as other oppressive and barbaric practices should not be accommodated or tolerated. Just say no. We are weak and easily shamed and guilted into complying to Islams wishes, smarten up and realize that this is not a small concession, this is subjugation. Give Islamists an inch and they will run a marathon with it. Those who are not Islamist fundamentalists, have no use for the bat suit. There is no place for it in the west.

Atwood, who I am definitely not defending, has admitted that she actually based her dystopian novel, on the Iranian theocracy. What she didn’t say, but what can easily be surmised is that she did not have the courage to criticize Islam, so she went the coward’s route and opted to criticize Christianity instead. Margaret Atwood, our hero.

Atwood Society-
“Gilead uses the familiarity of Christianity to brainwash its denizens, but Gilead is not a Christian nation”.
That is double speak and frankly the same argument of “Not a real Muslim”.
Would you like to go over the protestant reformation with me?
I’m Catholic don’t cha know. I have some input over the bastardization of scripture as sure as a Jew & a Muslim would have over me.
Difference is, we acknowledge what IS CHRISTIAN, just the wrong type.
Its just a kinky novel for those lacking in life.

Ya Jesus was smart. I wish you knew. And He was able to cast out demons, including satan himself. Moses or Mohammed couldn’t do that. He fulfilled the prophecy. In fact He warned us about False Prophets. I am the way the truth and the life, no one comes to salvation except through Me. Thanks be to God. God love you

Handmaid’s tale? What about Wuthering Heights? Tess of D’Urbervilles? 50 shades of Grey? Dracula! Girl with the dragon tattoo? etc. etc. These are all classic novels with real sexual & emotional abuse in them. Usually by men! And they are absolutely idolized by women! Its porn for women.
Don’t know how else to say this but these women are acting some she-porn. Wrapped up in what they know in their history. Daddy issues with Christianity.
Sounds stupid, I know.
Dear God, how can these women be so stupid? But here we are.
How bleeping embarassed am I as a woman? Totally. They don’t act out against the hijab. They sympathize because its kinky to them.
God I gotta go take a bath & wash my mouth out.
Great interview with Pollack. But I disagree. Nutty (of the psychological sort) people are attracted to their ideology unless mentally ill in which case any rhetoric goes. Been there.
Thanks for the great show.

The historical and present reality:

What Women These Christians Have!

“I have been reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also” (2 Timothy 1:5)

It’s possible that Lois – the grandmother of Paul’s travelling companion Timothy – may have been one of the 3,000 converted to Christ on the day of Pentecost. Whatever the background of Timothy’s faith, his had the bond of old-time religion about it – going back three generations.

This is a pattern of Bible Christianity down the centuries. John Newton of the eighteenth century, even in his worst days at sea as a slave-trader, could never forget his godly mother who had taught him to pray before she died, when he was eight years old.

“What women these Christians have!” exclaimed Libanius, the fourth century Greek teacher of Rhetoric. Among Libanius’ students was John Chrysostom, the ‘golden-mouthed preacher of Constantinople’ as he became known. Chrysostom’s mother, Anthusa, lost her husband at twenty, and from then on devoted her energy to the education of one of the most renowned of all early Christian leaders. There’s something about ‘grandmotherly religion’ that can get passed on down the generations.

Think of the renowned hymn-writer, Fanny Crosby of New England, who lost her sight at six weeks old. It was her Puritan grandmother who helped her to ‘see’ the world through her mind, and then helped her to know the Bible. By the time Fanny was twelve, she knew the first five books of the Bible by heart, all four Gospels and all the psalms. Out of this rich storehouse poured the hymns -‘Blessed Assurance,’ ‘To God be the Glory’ – over eight thousand in all.

Oh, there’s a vital role for dads and grandpas to play! But the big principle to take in today is that matters of faith and service are caught as much as taught. And the home is the best school of all.

From.above: “Margaret Atwood, the Canadian socialist, wrote The Handmaid’s Tale in the wake of the Iranian revolution, when women were forced to wear face-obscuring veils”

- so, the author is obviously being disingenuous. He or she understands that many different cultural phenomena from many different parts of the world went into the writing of the book, but then goes on to argue that the book is anti-christianity. This makes me wonder if the author had actually read the novel in question, as clearly Christians are just as oppressed, attacked, and murdered as all other religions - both in the novel and TV show. Churches are repurposed or destroyed. The Bible is not allowed, and any vestiges that remain from holy books are bastardized to suit the purposes of the new dictatorial regime. Gilead uses the familiarity of Christianity to brainwash its denizens, but Gilead is not a Christian nation.

Any Christian who sees his or her faith reflected in The Handmaid’s Tale should probably rethink his or her religious beliefs and path in life!

I wonder, will they find ways to keep Tommy’s prosecution going forever? Always keeping him on the edge? Keep him on the defensive? Show their fellow haters they’re “fighting racism and bigotry”?

I think Tommy has enough already to sue the state, and should proceed to do so, rather than wait for a “final” outcome. Best defense is a good offense.
