Kyle-Anne Shiver lets it all out:
Before the current high-tech, news-around-the-world-in-the-blink-of-an-eye age, I doubt many Americans would even know how the proverbial other half of the planet lives; but now we do. We can read about it every day, 24/7. We have pictures, videos yet. Even in some of the most repressive regimes on earth, some brave soul with a laptop, internet access and a cell phone/camera/camcorder manages to get the word out, and blast it around the globe instantaneously.
And in my opinion, the ultimate oppression of our age, no matter how one cares to cut it, slice it, dice it, whatever, is hands-down the subjugation of females – from birth to the grave – in places ruled by this cockamamie Sharia law. Liberals may be scared to call a spade a spade, but I’m not.
NOW doesn’t have anything to say about burkas but I do. I think they are not only oppressive, which is bad enough, but they are also full-body disguises that no society that is the target of terrorists can allow on the streets any more than level IV tactical body armor is allowed for civilian wear.
