On the 14th September 2014, Joan Smith published this article in The Independent newspaper, which she opened by saying [Oscar]
‘Pistorius is already on his way to rehabilitation in a country where three women a day are killed by a husband or boyfriend.’
Smith’s article, reeking as it does with shameless feminist bigotry in this most tragic of human experiences, is reprehensible. Any reading of it reveals her agenda, which is standard feminist-speak, straight out of the manual as written by the likes of Women’s Aid, Refuge, and a host of others in the domestic violence industry – both here in Britain and in North America.
Women today (and many men: the so-called ‘White Knights’ and ‘Man-ginas’) should be in no doubt that the feminism they espouse is not going to liberate them. In fact it seeks to enslave them, and destroy them.
If ever there was an example of the sheer unrestrained infantility of some young women today, the professional victim Laura Bates is the epitome. Yet she seems to pop up everywhere in her crusade, Jeanne D’Arc- like, against what she calls ‘Everyday Sexism’. Catch her TEDx talk here – if you can stand seventeen minutes of simpering solipsism, that is.
One of the most-used – and most abused – ‘statistics’ in the feminist’s battery, intended to water-board us into believing their woman-as-victim narrative, is the one that goes:
‘Two women every week are killed, by a partner or former partner.’
The child-woman, Laura Bates, uses this phrase verbatim in her talk given at TEDx CoventGardenWomen, a London feminist group, on 7th December 2013, even adding the word ‘over’ at the beginning of her claim, just to make her point even more strongly – ‘Over two women a week are killed by their partner or former partner’, she says. Take a look at this 2 1/2 minute clip to get the full picture.
A couple of weeks ago, 18 August 2014 to be precise, David Cameron, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, announced his government’s new family friendly policy. It would be difficult to imagine a more duplicitous and basically deceitful few hundred words, than those that spilled from his lips that morning.
This last week has seen an outpouring of vitriol and venom against those who were in charge in Rotherham council, its social services and the police during the period when it is reported that at least 1,400 children were sexually exploited whilst in the care of the local authority between 1997 and 2013. (The independent report can be downloaded here).
The outcry, which has amounted to a societal shriek, has echoed around the media echo-chamber, gaining momentum in a classic feedback loop. It has even spread to the other side of the globe with calls for Sonia Sharp, the former Rotherham children’s services director, now in Australia, to resign from her current job over the scandal.
Ms Sharp’s response was that she wished she had been able to do more to prevent the abuse.
In this last few weeks, we have seen two political developments in Britain about the issue of violence against women and girls, and the intimately associated issue of domestic violence/abuse (DVA) in the home, which, of course, in the public’s mind really means much the same thing. After all, across Britain men are routinely raping women on campus, sexually abusing girls by taking advantage of their powerful positions, and then going home to beat up their wives and partners – according to the feminist narrative, that is.
