Obama: ‘protecting’ American lady-parts. Egyptian ones? …Well, not so much.

Let’s connect the dots:

One. This is from the official Tumblr of the Obama re-election campaign (click it fast, because it won’t be there soon): [UPDATE: Well, that was fast.]

 

Two. We are giving aid to Egypt.  Which is to say, we are giving Egypt $450 million of your tax money.

Three. Egypt, of course, is run by the Muslim Brotherhood.  This is what the Muslim Brotherhood thinks of Female Genital Mutilation:

  • Saad El Katatny, the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood bloc in parliament, says his movement is not opposed to the child law as a whole, rather “just those provisions that run counter to the norms, customs, and nature of the Egyptian people.” Aspects of the law that he takes issue with include articles that make it illegal to try children as adults, permit birth certificates for the children of unwed mothers, restrict corporal punishment, raise the marriage age to 18 years, and reinforce a standing ban on female circumcision.” (2008)
  • Female Advisor to Egyptian President: Girls Not Circumcised “Lacking in Faith” Earlier this week, Egypt’s Tahrir News conducted an interview with Dr. Amina Kamal, advisor to President Morsi on Women’s Affairs, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice party, and a member of the Constituent Assembly.” (2012)
  • A number of Egyptian human rights groups have submitted a communication to the Attorney General Abdel Meguid Mahmoud against the Muslim Brotherhood`s political arm, the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) to investigate the complaints of people in the village of Abu Aziz in the Minya governorate, south of Cairo, over the existence of a large medical convoy organized by the party that wanders streets and does medical examination on people, including female circumcision, or female genital mutilation, in violation of Egyptian law, conventions and treaties signed by Egypt.” (2012)
  • Muslim Brotherhood (MB) MP Mohamed el-Omda objected to the criminalization of female circumcision in the presence of his three daughters and his mother.” (2012)
  • For those wondering why on earth (in spite of the many rebuttals from Islamic clerics that FGM is distinctly un-Islamic) the Muslim Brotherhood have decided to virtually campaign on their support of it? Perhaps a view down the lens of social currency is helpful. Certainly we are not unfamiliar here in the UK with the idea of politicians aligning themselves with moral currencies such as marriage and sexuality in the face of the rapid decline of monetary capital. The Muslim Brotherhood also find that taking the [dubious] moral high-ground of chastity and honour avails them the opportunity to triumphantly reach into the heart of the vast majority of economically deprived Egyptians without offering any actual policies to relieve their hardship.” (2008)

Four.  Let’s look at that Tumblr again, shall we?

 

Five.  I think that I do agree with the Tumblr, after all: American women should vote to protect lady-parts.  Which is to say, they should be voting for Romney-Ryan.

    Feminism certainly changed things. Now it is liberal to think of women as emotional beings run solely by their lady parts.

  • [...] And finally, Obama: ‘protecting’ American lady-parts. Egyptian ones? …Well, not so much. [...]

  • The point of Obama’s protection of “American Lady-parts”, is not to provide actual protection, but rather to make American women believe that it is. Sandra Fluke and her fellow reproduction rights activists are a useful tool for purveying that message. They themselves do not understand- or if they do it is even more egregious- that the actual goal is the control of their lady-parts. It is usurpation in the guise of freedom.
    It is a ploy to get women to wantonly participate in the chemical manipulations of their wombs. And what a boon for Big Pharma! It is a step toward turning an actual ‘choice’ into a ‘mandate’. The mandate is extended through the employer onto female employee.
    When the Affordable Care Act makes it untenable for private health insurance firms to stay in business, contraception will be handled entirely by the government. Talk about a ‘frog in the pot’ scenario.
    I know it seems too extreme to be likely. But consider the egregious practices of the Patriot Act via the TSA and Homeland Security.

    Hey Moe, I found your link through Mary her blogFREEDOMEDEN.
    As a woman who just barely thirty, I have had my share of time spent with the young, college- age pro- choice women, and their strange belief that the left is a true representation of their rights. They go on and on about systematic infanticide and unbridled sexuality but don’t understand what the moral dilemmas involved create for themselves and society. More often than not they are surrounded by nodding, horny guys who support their feminine freedoms.
    Young women, wake up! The left doesn’t give a damn about you! You are pawns in their sociopathic lust for power over your true freedoms and liberties. “Planned Parenthood”, my ass! Most of those involved in the conceptions of aborted fetuses could have used a lot more planning, and restraint!
    My “Lady Parts”are screaming that they want nothing to with Obamacare, or the left’s Regime.
