We All Knew Her As “Nancy”

Bruce (Betty-Jo) Bialosky is founder of the “Republican Jewish Coalition of California,” (a position which offers slightly less opportunity for human interaction than the job of Major Appliance Repair Specialist for the Maytag Corporation), as well as a columnist for Townhall; and it’s in the latter capacity that he has a specialmessage for President Obama:
Oh, I’m sorry, that’s not the message.  The actual message reads, “Psyche!
Mr. Obama, your speech in Cairo encouraged me to reconsider my thoughts on how I view Islam as a religion in today’s society. I have really thought it over and decided to fully accept Islam … with just a few caveats.
Betty-Jo is one of the Caveat Creeps!
First, they have to stop treating women as second class citizens.
Except when it comes to abortion — we’re actually kind of on-board with that part of the program.  And the staying home and raising children, and submitting to her husband, and…  Okay, look.  Basically, we demand that women in Muslim countries be treated as second class citizens with the option to buy an upgrade to first class if they’re light-skinned and rich enough.
Don’t tell me those head covers are worn by choice. They are forced on them just like honor killings.
Well now I feel bad for all those Orthodox Jewish women I pass on my way to the New Beverly Cinema.  I always assumed the scarves and snoods were consensual.
Halacha (Jewish law) requires married women to cover their hair…
It is sad the French have it right and we don’t on this issue. This is a country where we have worked for a hundred years to bring equality to women.
Just give us another couple hundred more and I’m sure we’ll nail it.
Allowing any woman to be subservient is disgraceful.
Couldn’t agree more.  Still, we better check the directions first…
Corinthians 11:  Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God. Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head. And every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head—it is just as though her head were shaved. If a woman does not cover her head, she should have her hair cut off; and if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut or shaved off, she should cover her head. A man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man. For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; neither was man created for woman, but woman for man. For this reason, and because of the angels, the woman ought to have a sign of authority on her head.
So come on, ladies, we’re at war — dishonor your head!
And come to think of it, tell your Secretary of State and Speaker of the House to stop covering their heads on visits. They are supposed to be beacons of the women’s movement. By covering their heads, they are not being respectful to their hosts– they are disgracing every woman who ever fought for equal rights.
Don’t mind me, hum-de-dum, just disgracing my sex, la-la-la…
Next, tell the Islamists to stop killing gays. Maybe gays are not totally accepted in this society, but we have made great progress in the last 50 years. We may not agree on gay marriage, but we certainly agree on equal rights for gays.
“…in that we agree they shouldn’t have any…Okay, I admit, that’s another point for the Islamists, but even a stopped clock is right twice a day.”
We don’t allow them to be killed just for being gay.
They’ve got to be gay and do something offensive, like cruise Tucker Carlson in a public toilet.  Then it’s on, bitch!
How about the issue of freely elected democratic governments in the Muslim world? Not too many of those around, are there Mr. Obama? When the Islamic world stops being run like feudal societies given up by the rest of the world half a millennium ago, I think it would then be a grand time to accept the Muslims.
(Offer void in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman, and Qatar.)
I know it is sometimes politically expedient to deal with dictators…But please explain to me why in today’s world, where the great majority of people live in democracies, that we need to make nice-nice with dictators. This country is all about not accepting autocracies, Mr. Obama.
Just their tongues.
