No Small Irony Here

I feel that if someone is here in the US, they should respect the laws.

Muslim Woman Arrested for Allegedly Refusing to Take Off Headscarf at Georgia Courthouse

ATLANTA — A Muslim woman arrested for refusing to take off her head scarf at a courthouse security checkpoint said Wednesday that she felt her human and civil rights were violated.

A judge ordered Lisa Valentine, 40, to serve 10 days in jail for contempt of court, said police in Douglasville, a city of about 20,000 people on Atlanta's west suburban outskirts.

Valentine violated a court policy that prohibits people from wearing any headgear in court, police said after they arrested her Tuesday.

What I do like about this though is the irony. How many Muslim countries can an American woman visit and not wear a scarf? Yet Muslims come to the US and use our freedoms, that they do not enjoy at home, against us.

To compound the irony, we have CAIR coming to her rescue. This is an organization that supports these countries and their repressive policies towards women, when they take out time from working in support of terrorists that is.

"I just felt stripped of my civil, my human rights," she said Wednesday from her home. She said she was unexpectedly released after the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations urged federal authorities to investigate the incident as well as others in Georgia.

So CAIR is now going to fight for her civil rights? As I said before they support the absolute subjugation of women back home but here they are going to fight for her rights here?

This is not about civil rights. It's about pushing Islam on country that is not paying attention to what is going on.

The days of groups waging big battles for their rights are gone. Mostly because the real battles have been won, specifically racial equality and rights for women. The issues groups are fighting for now, gay "rights", Muslims, global warming, illegal immigration, are a tougher sell. Of course this is mostly because they are horseshit.

What these groups are doing now is waging several small battles that fly under the public's radar.

This is largely being done in our public schools, it's called brain washing. Schools, unencumbered from the old burdens of teaching our children to read and write, bombard our kids on a daily basis with propaganda on the environment, the "rights" of groups like gays and Muslims, and the evils of competitiveness.

This case in Georgia is not a religious freedom issue, as far as I know the subjugation of women is not a protected religious right. It is nothing short of the attempt to put lipstick on a pig. Muslims want us to forget what they really stand for, the death and destruction of anything non-Muslim, and the acceptance of the religion as that of one of peace.

So to make it simple, if she doesn't want to live by our laws, she can go to Saudi Arabia. She will certainly be allowed to wear her burqa in court there.

And kudos to the judge who had the courage to put her in her place.

Why the hell is somebody named Lisa Valentine wearing the hijab? Where did she pick up Islam, in jail? Hey honey, take off the costume, this isn't Iran.

Great blog.

"This is not about civil rights. It's about pushing Islam on country that is not paying attention to what is going on."

It never is about civil rights, that's just the smoke-screen to foist their ideology upon us and undermine the western world.

Fortunately for them most out there are too busy tucking into American idol or some such crap to figure it out, when the eventually figure it out, it'll be too late.

Aaron Proctor said...

A lot of these groups are very subjective about who they represent.

Hack into Sarah Palin's e-mail and where's the ACLU?

Get fired from your job because of your views on Prop 8 and illegal immigration? Where's the ACLU?

MKSViews has it right - in fact, most of the people tucking into American Idol are the people who are screwing up everything with their "informed votes".

Chuck said...

Shoprat, agreed. We need more judges to stand with the law instead of "interpreting" it to their liking

Larry, good catch, I didn't pay attention to the name

MK, welcome to America. I love this country but it is full of dolts. We have more people voting for American Idol than the elections of our leaders. It's a rediculous mess. While the independant streak of me has a problem with compulsary voting, I think you guys have it right. I think people should be pushed to get off of their asses and get out and vote.

Aaron, agreed. The ACLU has become a joke. They've been bad for awhile but now that they are being funded by George Soros, there is no pretense of being anything other than a far left attack machine.

you said:

exactly - women, even american women, can be arrested and jailed in these countries for not wearing head scarves or for showing arms or legs. you don't see any american going to court to change the rules. the same is true for language. go to any other country, they do not have all of their gov. publications printed in 2 languages not do their schools allow you not to learn the language and still pass...why can't people see how backwards this is?

"I feel STRIPPED of my human rights" See how they're using us and our laws? How do we get AROUND THIS?

I still say the worst thing that happened was when the Flying Imams dropped their case against the other fliers who were scared out of their wits. I SO WISH the imams didn't have such great lawyers who obviously advised "if you sue innocent and frightened Americans and these people in this country see the trial on TV and see what you're doing, islam will never succeed here."

I SO wish they'd gone to trial. But, THEY are far more up on our laws and know JUST how to play us...this is the scariest part.

As for the ACLU, that's OUR long will we stay quiet? What will it take for our conservative journalists to SPEAK UP and STAND UP TO THEM? EVER??

"How many Muslim countries can an American woman visit and not wear a scarf? "

Exactly. The hypocrisy is disgusting.

Thank God that judge had the sense to realize that we don't run SHARIA courts.

Brooke said...

Oh, and the woman who wouldn't take her scarf off should go try her luck in a SHARIA court and see how her human rights stand up there.

Utterly disgusting.

Chuck said...

Kris, right. Then the Muzzies come here and abuse our laws.

Z, I agree fully. It would have been nice to see a very public trial on this.

Brooke, I think back to the Clinton years and how his administration was silent on this (of course he had his own repsect-for-women issues).

Also, I am stunned at the silence of the "women's rights" groups in this country. Look at Code Pink, they are largely women and they attack Bush on Iraq. They are effectively defending this treatment of women. They're all a bunch of whackjobs.

Well how long are we going to have judges with the courage to rule like this? I'm not all that confident with BO's future picks.
