While Democrats in the US are trying to obliterate the very concept of women, women in Iran are bravely risking (and giving) their lives to stand up to their oppressive hardline Islamic government. The protests started after 22-year-old Mahsa Amini was arrested by the “morality police” because her hijab didn’t cover enough of her head. Two days later, she was taken to a hospital where she died. The official story is that the healthy young woman had a heart attack, which nobody buys. It set off massive protests by women that have now grown to over 100 cities.
But leave it to members of “The Squad” to completely miss the point and someone voice “solidarity” with the women of Iran while failing to say a word against radical Islamists but instead attack the “patriarchy” and pro-life Republicans.
But wait: pro-life Americans aren’t only synonymous with ironfisted Iranian mullahs (and, of course, Nazis.) “Republican” Rep. Adam Kinzinger took a break from his January 6th Kommittee duties of trying to blame Trump for a riot by taking to Twitter and trying to claim that pro-lifers support Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. As they say on the Interwebs, it did not go well.
Kudos to him, though, for actually managing to say something related to abortion that makes what Stacey Abrams is saying sound almost coherent in comparison.
