L:istening to a newscast about the latest indignity that woman have to suffer in the war against terrorism: being physically patted down at the airport (and it is women who will have to 'suffer' through this, as guess who will eventually be getting 'felt up' by some big fat slob at the airport who probably hasn't had a girlfriend since grammer school) I was struck by the instigators of this latest excess: other women. Female terrorists who recently hid explosives under their clothes to help their 'brother' Islamic Fundamentalists achieve independence from Russia and thus complete control to impose, you guessed it, Islamic Fundamentalism on THEM...
Sadly enough, it appears that there are women out there in the world who will fight tooth and nail to perpetuate their own enslavement...
AND this is NOT limited to the Islamic World btw, but exists in Western Societies as well...
I realized this when I came across this list last night and realized how MANY women were aiding and abetting the most recent social engineering movement within our court system to displace women in their role as mothers...
It has been said that women appeared to have suffered the most from the disorientation which took place in our society when they were handed the freedom that feminism had won for us...
Perhaps they were right...
I will go more into this in the next post...
