One can see how this would make a devout follower of Judaism uncomfortable.
The organizer in question, Linda Sansour, said:
“There is no country in this world that is immune to violating human rights. You can’t be a feminist in the United States and stand up for the rights of the American woman and then say that you don’t want to stand up for the rights of Palestinian women in Palestine.”Of course the chief oppressors of Muslim women are Muslim men, who in some countries stone women victims of rape. Honor killings also are part of the culture in some Muslim countries.
Bialik is committed to Israel. She has said she received death threats after visiting Israel in 2015.
She said after the march:
“Zionism is the belief in the right of the Jewish people to have an autonomous state in Israel. I am a Zionist. Feminism is the belief that a woman-driven movement can bring about race, class and gender equality and that women deserve all of the rights and privileges afforded to men. I am a feminist.”Bialik was duped.
We all get duped.
I trust this incident will open her eyes to Trump, who also supports Israel. Like Bialik's husband, Trump's eldest daughter converted to Judaism and is raising her children in the Jewish faith.
Oh, and as far as death threats go, I venture to guess she received none for being a Never Trumper.
Death threats are something actual fascists use.
In re-reading the piece, I realize the "Blossom" may seem like a putdown. Well, Bob Denver was always Maynard G. Krebs to me, just as Bryan Cranston will always be the father from "Malcolm in the Middle" to me. Those are their roles that first impressed me. I figure some readers are the same way.
