Miss Qu'ran and the feminists

Thomas Lifson
The left wing propaganda machine is a wonder to behold, managing the theoretically impossible feat of propagandizing for Islam at a radical feminist rally. It happened in San Francisco, of course, where government, the media, political organizations -- everything relevant propaganda - is controlled by the left.

Zombie, the sharp-eyed and quick-witted anonymous chronicler of the Bay Area left, has published a vastly entertaining and profoundly revealing photo-essay featuring Miss Qu'ran.

February 14 used to be Valentine's Day, but this year Eve Ensler hijacked the date to mark the climax of her worldwide anti-rape dance/protest known as 1 Billion Rising. I attended the San Francisco 1 Billion Rising rally, where "dancing is a revolution."

When I first showed up at Civic Center, right in the middle of the protest someone was holding up a big sign with a Bible quote.

Oh wait, did I say Bible? My bad. I meant the Qu'ran. Silly me. Everyone knows that the Bible is anti-woman; thus it would be inappropriate to quote it at a feminist rally.

 

Zombie tracks Miss Qu'ran as she is strategically positioned by the organizers in prime spots, where the cameras will pick her up behind speakers.

The essay is insightful, and the pictures are wonderful. Zombie is a national treasure, documenting and analyzing the left wing's public events in the left wing redoubt, San Francisco. One more gem from the piece:

The main problem I have with 1 Billion Rising and V-Day and SlutWalk and all the rest is that they are purposeless - protests "against" a non-existent strawman. The only legitimate rationale behind having any kind of political protest is to support one side or the other in a contested ideological battle. But in this case, we're protesting against rape, even though there is nobody in this country who supports rape.

Sure, there are rapists out there, but I kinda get the feeling none would go to a rally like this to have their minds changed, and they sure as hell don't care what a bunch of protesters have to say on the topic (presuming on the off-chance that a rapist would ever hear of events like these, which is extremely doubtful). Rapists already know that rape is "wrong," but somehow that knowledge never dissuaded them in the past. Furthermore, there already are laws against rape and sexual abuse - laws with amongst the most severe punishments in our legal system. So: everybody (except for psychopaths) already hates rape. Rape is already as illegal as it can be. Rape is universally loathed. What more do you want?
