This Tweet From One Women’s March Organizer Shows How NUTS The Left's Worldview Is

Linda Sarsour

One of the four chief organizers for the massive Women’s March that took place on Saturday is “Palestinian-American-Muslim racial justice & civil rights activist” Linda Sarsour. Sarsour, who also served as a Democratic National Convention delegate, was honored by President Obama’s administration as a “Champion of Change”; fittingly, she also posed in Chicago with an alleged Hamas financier (fitting because Barack Obama used to give speeches in honor of Palestinian terror mouthpiece Rashid Khalidi).

So, what exactly drove Sarsour’s ire during the Women’s March? Here’s a clue from 2014:

If you wonder why hundreds of thousands of women declared themselves “brave” for marching in favor of taxpayer-funded contraception while doing nothing for women abroad who live in abysmal circumstances, this would be it: a complete lack of perspective.

Perhaps one reason that Saudi Arabia is happy to pay for “maternity leave” is because they bribe their citizens not to rebel against the autocratic regime through massive welfare payments; perhaps another reason is because the government wants to encourage women to stay home rather than working. In Saudi Arabia, as The Week reports, women can’t get a passport without the permission of a husband, father, or other male guardian; most Saudi women can’t drive; Saudi women are prevented from wearing attractive clothing; go to public areas that are non-segregated; or even try on clothes at stores.

This is just another piece of evidence that a government big enough to give you goodies is big enough to take away rights. And it turns out that people who think that Saudi Arabia’s maternity policies rather than their restrictions on female driving probably shouldn’t be a guide to female freedom in the United States. But the left would prefer not to focus on such matters, since that would obligate them to favor Westernism rather than multiculturalism abroad and at home.
