Not a single word of protest out of this crowd. Look at the so-called “men” marching with the feminists.
There is no practice too cruel, too barbarous, too absurd for the American Civil Liberties Union and other liberals to defend it–as long as it appalls America and somehow hurts our country.
In 2017 the Maine state legislature moved to criminalize Female Genital Mutilation, FGM–that is, cutting away a young girl’s sexual apparatus. Muslims and certain heathens do it in Africa. It’s already against federal law here in the US: nevertheless, in 2012 the CDC reported there were already half a million victims of FGM in America.
There weren’t enough federal prosecutors available to handle all those cases, so Maine Republicans tried to make it against state law.
And what happened next? Yesterday I looked for follow-up, and soon found it.
Democrats, with the ACLU as cheerleaders, stopped the legislation. Gotta be “culturally sensitive,” dontcha know! This at a time when you had “feminists” marching around in pussy hats and bragging, “We are naaaasty women!” Not a word out of them to protect girls from FGM.
Question! This is our country–right? Why in the world should we have to tolerate weird and barbarous cultural practices, completely incompatible with ours, from other countries? Where does it say we have to make like we’re Somalia with snow? When did we give them the go-ahead to import some of their more hair-raising customs to America?
But the operating principle is simple enough. If it’s bad for America, repugnant to any decent person, contrary to common sense, or just plain crazy… Democrats are for it, all the way.
