Maryam Monsef is no feminist hero

Candice MalcolmRebel Contributor

Maryam Monsef’s dismal time as Minister of Democratic Institutions has come to an end.

After a run of bad publicity and countless unanswered questions about her mysterious past, Monsef has been demoted to the Minister responsible for “the Status of Women.”

Monsef is now Canada’s official government feminist.

It’s kind of fitting for Monsef to be in that role: A token ministry for a token minister. The Status of Women ministry is, of course, as unnecessary in Canada as Monsef is in Canada.

The idea that Canadian women need a special government agency is both demeaning, pejorative and, frankly, out of date and out of touch.

Canadian women are not victims in need of special government assistance. 

Besides, the major issues within Status of Women – domestic abuse and missing and murdered aboriginals – are issues relating to crime and security, both already under the purview of the Department of Public Safety.

These issues also effect men, and it’s wrong and unhelpful to exclude half the population in dealing with societal problems.

Instead of blindly defending Monsef, simply because she is a woman, organizations like Equal Voice should recognize that Monsef, in more ways than one, has done a disservice to Canadian women.

She reinforced harmful stereotypes about women and mathematics when she suggested the equation for electoral outcomes was too complicated.

She once tweeted that she was “fascinated” by Sharia law – the Islamic religious code that subjugates women and often permits marital abuse and rape.

Maryam Monsef is no feminist hero.

She’s a politician in over her head, at a department that has outlived its mandate.

why is this kunt still in Canada and making policy in a country that she’s not even a legal citizen in being and paid 200 grand a year.!!!!

I agree Candice.
Maryam Monsef is actually an insult to women for the lack of honesty she has shown regarding her citizenship plus her position on Sharia Law. She is willing to do ‘anything’ to have this power to manipulate and stay on the power trip she is enjoying, but eventually what goes around will come around.
I as there when the Status of Women was created in the 70’s; it is now passé.

With a little less profile she’s thinking maybe this will just go away in the minds of the public.!!

12 million “impressions”. She doesn’t say how many were positive, and how many were negative. She’s slime! I truly believe that women is psychotic. She’s beyond narcissistic – for reals!

How is this illegal alien still in our country let alone our government?

Monsef is an Obama plant!

Sorry David White, bad term.
Actually the proper spelling is ‘Monsef’.

The worst part of all the cluster is that it is referred to as JT’s cabinet shuffle. Really ! This guy is so disassociated with internal workings of parliament, the PMO and Butts called this. JT is planning his next vacation.
Oh the shame, the embarrassing PM.
Sophie, please sing us a song, we’ll all feel better in our happy place.

Monsef is an Iranian agent. Didn’t she tweet that she was fascinated by shariah law? Sunni days ahead for Canadian women.

CANDICE , that was one concentrated power packed news video commentary

THE REBEL is the only real news organization that holds the government accountable to its citizens

Sorry, David, but I was describing the need through the Zoolander PM’s world view, not through the world view of the average Canadian of common sense.

So monsef is the new national face of the modern day man hate cult more commonly referred to as feminism. Seems rather fitting that an unqualified, affirmative action leftist liar is placed in charge of a department to push the toxic cancerous lie that is modern day feminism
Well done Zoolander! Huzzah!

Actually MAURICE, he needs his ass kicked.

Since 9/11 – IN THE NAME OF ISLAM (SATAN): 32,668 Attacks, 209,354 Killed, 293,159 Injured that we know of.

Incompetence is one of the bench-mark qualifications for inclusion in Trudeau’s cabinet. After all, he’s the most incompetent minister of them all. He certainly couldn’t tolerate anyone more clever than him. He needs ass kissers.

Right on Candice! Monsef is a joke and shouldn’t still be in the country let alone the government on any level. I hope they shuffle her arrogant behind right out the door and onto a waiting plane. If The Status of Women ministry was only a redundant waste of time, that would be bad enough, but it is used by cultural Marxists to further their agenda’s. Just one in the basket of tools laid out for abuse by our malleable bureaucracies.

Keep on Monsef’s case, Candice.

Not only does Sharia law facilitate and encourage rape, but also condemns the woman for being raped.
