Hypocritical Margaret Atwood's bizarre fashion criticism

Rebel Staff

Princess Kate is easily one of the most beautiful women in the world, yet not everyone is impressed.

Margaret Atwood's 'fashion criticism' of Kate was a big story in the UK. Should the 'unusual-looking' Atwood really be commenting on how other people look?

The turbo feminist also called out Stephen Harper and his position on the niqab at citizenship ceremonies.

Margaret Atwood is a hypocrite. But you probably already knew that.

Ezra: there are so many heavy subjects these days, I was getting depressed. So, thank you for the good laugh….I’ve laughed, and laughed and laughed. (More than I would have had I read one of Margaret Atwood’s books in the last 20 years!)
As someone once said: if you give them enough rope, they’ll hang themselves. I think she just did.

Margret hasn’t got a mirror. I think we should start a fund to buy one so she can write more realistically!

Why would anyone take seriously the fashion statements from someone who made such a poor choice in plastic surgeons?
commented 2015-04-07 13:20:01 -0400
Kate my dear, it may not have sounded like it, but your appearance has just been given the best “thumbs up” you could ever imagine!

- “…the ‘unusual-looking’ Atwood…”
Well that one cracked me up pretty good…
- It really bothers me though when I hear, or see in print, the adjective Canadian being associated with infamous names like Omar Khadr, or any other Islamic terrorist’s name, Henry Morgentaler, the Olson/Homolka/Bernardo/ Picton/Legere’s, the Levin/Wynn’s, any Trudeau, Margret Attwood…
- Margret who?
- Oh and Ezra, you shouldn’t make fun of the lefty/liberals, no matter how funny looking or however much they look like a diseased and senile old lesbian hag – I mean it’s not like there isn’t a whole lot of legitimate things to criticize this silly cow for – because that’s just playing the lefty/liberal ‘character assassination and demonizing labeling as an argument’ game.
“…the ‘unusual-looking’ Atwood…” Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha…

The word “ugly” can be used in many contexts. In terms of Atwoods looks, I will not make comments or judgements. But I find her entire persona, her attitudes and demeaner to be “ugly”. She has imprisoned herself in a feminist leftist box, unable to see any other dimension of thought. I pity her and the people that listen to her miserable view of life.

Yvette, good idea as far as it went, but you forgot one important refinement; she should wear her niqab backwards.
commented 2015-04-07 00:33:16 -0400
Yeah Margaret!! Since you think the niqab is an appropriate piece of clothing, you might give some thought about fabricating one to cover up your drab appearance.
commented 2015-04-06 22:46:43 -0400
Delusion and hypocrisy are the left’s earmarks, as Atwood’s carping about Kate’s very elegant modes of dress demonstrates once again.

I have heard the name Margaret Atwood before but I can’t remember why.
I was thinking about Googling her but decided to first find out why any article about her was in the news.
I managed to find out she was/is a writer and she had an opinion about some of the royalty and Steven Harper.
I am now off to see some worthwhile news as this is just boring.
I will try in the future to ignore her as she is just an irritant in my day. I think that is why I don’t know her in the first place. That and she hasn’t aged well.
I judge people. I judge buy their looks and manor. I am a judgemental SOB by some others opinion. They are right. I don’t like Trudeau and his fans either. Mulcare should take a hike miles off shore heading east.
But hey, I’m judgemental. I just Googled the word and they got it right too.
I trust the people of Canada will again give Harper the seat for another term. I hope Trudeau will join Iggy and leave politics. Mulcair can join them both.
If we cannot sell our oil we should just use it ourselves until the people that want it build the pipeline. America via Obama doesn’t want it. BC doesn’t want it. Ontario wants it. The east has always wanted Alberta oil. Trudeau and Lougheed battled over Alberta oil. Alberta won that battle.
Like I said before, I’m judgemental.

Maggie, first you need to go see your eye doctor! Second, a therapist, your delusions are seriously worrying me. Third, good for her not dressing up like a princess, should be a no brainer for a feminist, impressionable young girls………. My personal opinion, I can’t write because it has something to do with," where the sun does not shine". But then again maybe that’s your problem in the first place. Seriously, get a makeover!
commented 2015-04-06 18:42:59 -0400
Has Maggie been smoking the Justin pipe?
commented 2015-04-06 18:15:06 -0400
Margaret Attwood! I think I may have read one of her books once, when I was stuck in a logging camp on the BC west coast, and it was the only book left in camp that I hadn’t read. Damned if I can remember what it was about. Margaret Lawrence too, the title of her book was “Stone Angel”; can’t remember what that was about, either. I always got those two Margarets mixed up. Now that Margaret Lawrence is dead, it’s less confusing. I’d still like to know who the limp-wristed pansy was who brought those books into a logging camp. But on to the subject at hand; we all know that Margaret Attwood is one of the World’s true profound beauties and greatest fashion icons of the last half of the 20th century, carrying over into the 21st. So her judgments carry deep relevance and much weight globally, and must therefore be taken quite seriously. ( I sure hope ya’ll can recognize sarcasm when you here it, other wise I’m in big trouble)

Who really gives a shit what Margaret friggin Atwood has to say about anything?
I think it is a waste of good space for the Rebel to feature this dingbat.

JOHN C. MATTHEWS i agree about a thumbs up and down choice, also the ability to edit or delete one’s post if they make a mistake or would like to add more, also a drop down reply to a person’s post.
I comment on yahoo comments, they have a nice comment set up
commented 2015-04-06 17:16:20 -0400
Margaret who ?, i have heard of her but other than that she means nothing to me.
Well ,lets see,i am not one to openly judge someone by their looks, we all do of course but one should keep it to themselves.That being said, she opened the door to her looks being criticized.
In what i see she looks like she should be pushing a shopping cart and picking up cans and bottles,she looks ragged and homeless .
She is the last to be judging kate,if you are going to criticize Kate, at least be on par with her looks, to look like Atwood looks and criticizing Kate is like a weed standing beside a rose.
And she says Kate look " uneventful" she should look in the mirror, then she will see uneventful
Maybe i am being nasty, i am normally a very nice ,easy going person but people like her bring out my nasty side.
As for her criticizing Harper for his stance on the niqab, well ,i will leave that one alone, anyone that looks like her. Oh i am being nasty.
commented 2015-04-06 16:43:52 -0400
Attwood – if she ever was relevant, that moment has long since gone

Margaret Atwood once use to stand for something, probably as far back as the sixties and perhaps early seventies when some on the Left actually stood for something. Back when some ‘environmentalists’ still cared first and foremost about the environment and did not merely pay lip service to it as a means to promote a Marxist or anarchist agenda. Back when some labour unions still cared about the working man or woman and did not merely collect dues to advocate an anti-Israel policy or to finance an anti-Harper voting bloc, or both. Back when the women’s liberation still cared about universal sufferance for women, before they started to started to ally with the fascist Islamists and consequently ignore the enslavement of Muslim women because it was no longer politically correct nor expedient.

Like the Leftist values she embodies and wears like a cheap dress from a bargain basement store, Ms. Atwood has become a shallow caricature of her former self and former values. Perhaps she misses the days when some still regarded her as Canada’s literary lion but no longer do; thus, Maggie is reduced to spouting provocative nonsense in the hopes of remaining relevant. Sadly, for a desperate Ms. Atwood, it is not working. In the words of singer/songwriter Paul Simon, “We can’t be forever blessed.”

Never read any of her work. I didn’t like the way she looked.
commented 2015-04-06 15:46:10 -0400
Atwood, who is the most hideous of the hideous and who dresses like a bag lady, is obviously jealous of our beautiful, young, vibrant Princess.
Grow up, Atwood. And while you’re at it, learn to write.

I didn’t know Carla Tortelli from Cheers was still around. And now she’s commenting on the heirs to the throne. Fair enough.
Wonder if Carla ever got back with Nick Tortelli.

atwood is such an ass-clown.

great job! i dont think the british monarchy is a perfect example of what possibility a real glorious and righteous monarchy can be. despite all that i am a unabashed and devoted monarchist and because the royal family do their role beautifully i really support them and really am proud of them and Canadians should count themselves really lucky for having this model representing them! all hail them! thanks ezra for everything you do… looking forward to good news on ukip and of course all things POLITICAL on canadian politics! gd bless and happy holiday of exodus with all canadians!

Margaret Atwood matters to about 10,000 people, unfortunately her activist fans are the most outspoken idiots in Canadian society. Try and criticize this “icon” and her trolls will demonize you. Can’t wait for the responses.
commented 2015-04-06 15:02:42 -0400
Margaret Atwood is certainly stylish and EVENTFUL, isn’t she!…although I haven’t seen her STYLE being copied by women everywhere. Kelvin has a point except for the notes below. Perhaps what is eating Ms. Atwood is that Kate is happily married and not in rebellion like princess Di…She probably was secretly keen on Di’s independence and spirit of criticism…sort of an anti-Stepford wife especially to Prince Charles…did Margaret secretly reject him for being a Prince of CANADA and maybe not as cute as she would like? Is she secretly jealous of Kate? Kate might fit the role Margaret despises considering Atwood’s writings: a happy wife who seems to get along with her husband…

As for Harper being falsely accused by Atwood of ‘PRETENDING’ to be pro-woman…is Atwood really pro woman if she thinks the niqab should be a RIGHT for women? Would she prefer that our politicians roll over and play dead while women are abused in this country by being forced to wear a garment that prevents them from breathing clean air. She doesn’t sound rational to me. Doesn’t she agree that breathing clean air is a BASIC HUMAN RIGHT for ALL people (according to the World Health Organization)? It is high time the WHO enforced the banning of the niqab and burkha as they did smoking in public places. The niqab and burkha culture forces women to re-breathe their own carbon dioxide all day and prevents exposure to the sun, therefore being indicated as a factor in the continuation of TB IN WOMEN! I wonder who is really PRETENDING to be pro-woman?

NOTE THIS FROM: Extrapulmonary Tuberculosis: A retrospective review of 194 cases at a tertiary care hospital in Karachi, Pakistan http://www.jpma.org.pk/full_article_text.php?article_id=1920

“…We did not study lifestyles, socioeconomic status or body mass indices of these women, however we postulate that possible reasons for FEMALE disease PREPONDERANCE may be the social exclusion of younger women who are generally homebound and have POORER NUTRITIONAL status than their male counterparts, social STIGMA associated with TB which DISCOURAGES women from seeking early medical care,and Vitamin D deficiency due to POOR DIETARY INTAKE as well as inadequate exposure to sunlight because of POOR HOUSING and THE CULTURE OF WEARING BURQAS”. (sounds like an anti-woman culture to me too, Mr. Harper) Thanks for trying to help these women, Mr. Prime Minister!

Some of Atwood’s earlier work was good. Politically relevant. And she had good editors. But she quickly used up anything good she had to say after she was no longer able to exploit the reason her writing was promoted in the first place – as part of a pay off to silence her exposing government corruption she stumbled on as a young person.

No one with a brain listens to Atwood especially on politics or fashion. I also believe she is aging rather gracelessly. What is wrong with her doctors?

Margret Atwood is regarded as pundit for the same reason she gets asked to write anything. She’s part of the in crowd. Publishers and broadcasters already know what she will say on any given subject. They already have the lines they want. They just need some one to say them. Atwood obliges.

Why are the mummified remains of Margaret Atwood regarded as a pundit on any subject?
