Omar’s Going To Market

Ah Muslims. Say what you will about them – and much can be said, little to none of it good – but accept the fact that they’ve always been good merchants who knew what goods could be sold for the most shekels.

It's market day and Omar is taking his train to the souq
Omar Is Taking His Train To The Souq

It’s truly variety of goods available for purchase in the Muslims’ souqs (markets) is truly amazing. Where else can you find a Muslim male leading his train of women to market for sale?

Abused Goddesses

Pranav Bhide of ad the agency Taproot has created a series of pictures depicting the Hindu Goddesses: Lakshmi (लक्ष्मी), Saraswati (सरस्वती), and Durga (दुर्गा) as victims of domestic violence to benefit Save Our Sisters, an recent anti-domestic violence initiative of Save The Children India which focuses on prevention and repatriation of sexually trafficked women and children in India.

Lakshmi, Saraswati, and Durga – Abused Goddesses

Each of the three ads is accompanied by the same text:

Pray that we never see this day. Today more than 68% of women in India are victims of domestic violence. Tomorrow it seems like no woman shall be spared. Not even the ones we pray too.

Taproot’s campaign was created by blending traditional hand-painted Indian art with modern-day photography using real models and has won multiple awards at different ad festivals.

If you’re Pagan, these ads will be eye-catching and a bit disturbing. For Hindu’s their blatantly shocking. Lakshmi who Hindus once beseeched on bended knee for good fortune now sits sad-eyed on a lotus with a bloodied nose. Saraswati’s infinite wisdom and knowledge were no defense against a black-eye. Durga, who once danced upon the demon (Asura) Mahishasura’s corpse now stands bruised, battered and teary-eyed, begging for our protection.

The images of Lakshmi and Saraswati are directly analogous to depicting the Blessed Mother Mary as beaten and bloodied. The image of Durga is a bit different because Durga is a Goddess of War and the defender of Heaven (Svarga). Showing Her as beaten and cowed is an implication that Heaven itself has been beaten and conquered by the growing violence against women in India.

That’s, however, a somewhat problematically mixed message. It may shock and shame men, which was its intent, but it also undermines the Indian women’s religious images of feminine authority by reducing three of their major goddesses to victims and stripping them of their awesome and often perilous divine power.

This may also be an indicator of how far the sad and shameful “domestication” of the Hindu Gods and Goddesses has gone in Post-Colonial India.

In Indian schools the now they tell children that when Shiva killed his wife Parvarti’s son, Ganesha she cried. They blatantly ignore that she also made ready to destroy the entire universe in her grief and rage and relented only when Shiva agreed to resurrect her son and make him a God.

At least Taproot was wise enough no to attempt to depict the Samrajni Kali Ma (काळी) as a victim of any form of violence, especially domestic violence.

Samrajni Kali Ma
सर्वमङ्गलमाङ्गल्ये शिवे सर्वार्थसाधिके । शरण्ये त्र्यम्बके गौरि नारायणि नमोऽस्तु ते ॥
ॐ जयंती मंगळ काळी भद्रककाळी कपालिनी । दुर्गा क्षमा शिवा धात्री स्वाहा स्वधा नमोऽस्तु‍ते ॥

It would be foolish to attempt to paint Kali as some form of abused Bhartiya Naari (“Traditional Indian Woman”). Nobody would believe or countenance that Kali, who sprung from Durga’s forehead and was made by Her rage and frustration at not being able to defeat the demon general Raktabija and his army could ever be a victim.

Of course, a follow-up campaign showing the possible repercussions of domestic violence against women in India featuring the Samrajni Kali Ma might be a powerful message…

Failures As Women?

For as long as I can remember, and that’s getting to be a long time indeed, the Liberals and Progressives have ranted about the military-industrial complex and the various American arms manufacturers. They’ve, in their racism, ageism, and sexism, described them as evil, murderous entities which are poisoned by testosterone and run by those horrid Evil Old White men.

One has to wonder if some part of the Liberals’ and Progressives’ screed will end or change now that three of the top six defense firms are headed by women.

Linda Hudson is CEO of BAE Systems’ US operations; Marillyn Hewson is the new CEO of Lockheed Martin; and Phebe Novakovic is the new CEO of General Dynamics. All three of these new defense industry CEOs are women and all three happen to be White.

So will the Liberals and Progressives alter their rants against the firms that produce the material needed to keep Americans both safe and with access to their needed resources, or will they label Linda Hudson, Marillyn Hewson, and Phebe Novakovic as failures as women or as traitors to the gender because they lead corporations “traditionally” headed by those evil, warmongering and war profiteering Old White Men? It’s a bit of a quandary and impossible nigh on impossible to predict what they’ll do.

On one hand, Liberals and Progressives have been quick to deride and attack any Black who got off their plantation and assimilated into America as an Oreo, Uncle Tom, Sell Out, and race traitor. It be easy for them to apply the same “niggerization” to women who rose to power in the defense industry.

On the other hand, the Liberals and Progressives are deeply tied to the Feminists, which might cause them a logical frisson since Feminism is predicated on women becoming men and, if possible, supplanting them. Hence, it might be difficult for them to attack Hudson, Hewson, and Novakovic for both political and ideological reasons.

Or, on yet another hand, will they just ignore these inconvenient women and continue their diatribes about the Evil Old White Men and their murderous machismo? This is the outcome that I expect since Liberals and Progressive place the truth second to the message.

Pissing On Portman

Hehe…It seems Natalie Portman is into “Water Sports” and a bit of sexual degradation and PETA, always fond of objectifying and denigrating women, was more than willing to make use of her.

Natalie Portman – Better Pissed On Than Pissed Off

Personally, I wouldn’t even piss on this scrawny, Leftist, vegan skank. That’s a personal opinion though and I’d prefer not to argue matters of taste with those who might feel differently about using Natalie Portman as a receptacle for various bodily fluids.

Challenge AcceptedBut, irrespective of one’s personal tastes and sexual perversions, Portman and PETA have given us the perfect response to- and reprisal for their long-time favorite tactic of throwing blood or paint on people.

Nothing could sum up Americans’ loathing for the rabble of PETA better than pissing on them.

Sure, piss-bombing these disgusting filth won’t be as damaging to personal property as using blood and/or paint. It is, however, much more poetic and much apropos if applied to celebrity PETA whores who are little, if anything, more than walking receptacles for fluids.

White House Jihadi

Dalia Mogahed - The Filthy White House Jihadi CuntThe “people” that Obama chooses to surround himself with – or, more likely, those that his handlers choose for him – are often the sort that shock the consciences of the American people.

It’s certainly very shocking for a POTUS to have an Islamist jihadi in their inner circle of czars, appointees and advisers, yet Obama does so in the twisted form of Dalia Mogahed who he appointed to his White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.

It’s pointlessly redundant to describe a Muslim as an anti-Semite, but Mogahed’s recent Twitter rant begs for that redundancy.

To those siding w/Assad: he cannot deliver stability, protection of minorities, or resistance to Israel. He is a killer w/o legitimacy.

Of course, declaring that Syria’s President, Bashar Hafez al-Assad lacked “legitimacy” because he didn’t support Muslim terrorism against Israel strongly enough isn’t that surprising coming from the vermin, Mogahed. This is the worthless sharmuta that two years ago said that Shari’a belonged in the UK and that is provided “gender justice.”

The majority of women around the world associate gender justice, or justice for women, with Shari’a compliance.

To be fair, she’s a hijabi, so it’s more than likely this mariidah kus thinks that wife-beating, raping prepubescent girls, and discriminating against women in matters of testimony, inheritance, marriage and divorce are :gender justice.”

Muslim “Gender Justice”

How Would Mogahed Face Such Justice?

The evidence is not particularly in doubt. The only real question before the American people is what “remedy” to apply to the White House Jihadi and whether or not those that apply it will let the law limit the nature of the solution they arrive at.
