Here’s the real “War on Women”: daily life with the Islamic State

If you were to turn on MSNBC on any given day, you’d be sure to see one of their hosts (the ones who haven’t been cancelled yet) slamming someone in the GOP for waging a “war on women”. But if you want to see a real war, look no further than the treatment of women under the rule of the Islamic State. Truly, truly horrifying.

Transcript below:

GLENN: We look at them now -- I don't think radical Islam is enough. These are psychotic Muslims. And I think we need to start calling them psychotic Muslims, but that's not enough. Let me give you a litle bit of their psychosis and the real war on women. We are quite honestly grotesque. I find us so offensive as a -- my fellow countrymen, we are offensive. We are acting as if nothing in the world is going on, and we are talking about a war on women here, because we won't give them free condoms. Here's the real war on women. The western model for women failed according to a manifesto that gives insight into what daily life is like living with the Islamic state extremists. A guide says beauty salons and plastic surgery are the work of the devil.

STU: Well, we all know that.

PAT: If you have your hair done, that clearly is Satan at work.

GLENN: The document is also critical of shaving and women wearing things, "hanging from their ears".

PAT: Oh.

STU: The circular disks that come from the ears, they're from the devil.

GLENN: Just as the devil expelled our parents he takes away her clothes, wishing to bring her the paradise of covering and decency and encourage her the spend huge amounts of money to change God's creation. The document says females can marry from has young as 9.

PAT: That's not of the devil at all.

STU: No. Keep talk about the war on women here in the United States, though. 9-year-old marriages, but keep talk about what's her face? Sandra Fluke.

GLENN: From that point forward, the bride should remain hidden.

PAT: Of course.

STU: From just 9, to the rest of their lives they get to remain hidden -- but the first eight years, they are totally free to --

GLENN: Well, the wife is permitted to leave the house to study theology, visit a women's doctor or a teacher, if it has been ruled that she must fight or engage in jihad, because the situation has become so desperate.

PAT: She can leave the house to wear a suicide vest and blow up a synagogue or --

GLENN: If it's been ruled.

STU: How do they punish them if it has not been ruled and they went out

and blew themselves up?

PAT: You don't get your virgin men.

GLENN: The guide says women should be educated, cannot fill their roles if illiterate or ignorant. They should start their education at 7, but finish by the time they're 15. I mean --

PAT: Get married in between at 9. Kind of a full slate.

GLENN: You are busy birthing babies when 12. The life of the woman is sedentary and focused first and foremost of the confines of the house.

PAT: Tell my wife that, you are so sedentary. Could you do a little something, please?

STU: I wish this was funny. I wish it was funny and not real.

GLENN: Perverted ISIS millitants are trying to score Viagra to fuel their lust for brutal and abnormal sex, according to a report from activists and the terrorists groups main Syrian stronghold. The supposedly ultra conservative Muslim fundamentalists have been forcing women in the city of Raqqa to marry them and engage in savage sex acts that result in hospital treatment. They buy kinky lingerie, described in a report as strange underwear for their reluctant brides, a large section of ISIS members suffer from sexual abnormalities and brutal instinctive desire for sex. Several families have reportedly fled the city, one girl has committed suicide. In a related development, two British human rights groups Wednesday said ISIS kidnapped at least 3,000 women and girls last year from the areas it controls. Some victims were forced to marry terrorists. Others were sold into sex slavery.

STU: How much are they paying for the pill, though? I think that's a little bit for crucial.

GLENN: Do they give them free contraceptives? Maybe we can drop that from airplanes. The report said accounts firsthand accounts from victims who spoke secretly by phone in August revealed that ISIS fighters were raping women on a daily basis, with some of their victims begging the activists to arrange air strikes on their location, to end their lives.

PAT: It's unbelievable.

GLENN: One kidnapped girl who belongs to the minority religious group said she was among 350 girls transported to Syria and offered for sale, as if in a chicken market.

PAT: Does it surprise anyone how sick they are, though? If you are willing to cut people's heads off, willing to burn people alive and do all these things.

GLENN: You don't see people as people.

Critical race theory: Struggle sessions

China has a rich legacy of torture. During the Cultural Revolution, the Chinese Communist Party used a variety of torture techniques. These became more and more advanced over time. This included public humiliation and public executions.

One specific kind of public humiliation is what's called "The Struggle Session." It was a punishment reserved for people who committed wrong-think. The point was to publicly degrade the person until they swore allegiance to the Communist Party. Their focus is on the elimination of the power base and/or class position of enemy classes or groups. It was also a warning to everyone watching: If you don't bend your knee to communism, you will be destroyed.

If you don't bend your knee to communism, you will be destroyed.

It was a way to punish anyone who so much as disagreed with Communist Party dogma.

These struggle sessions often took place in busy areas.

They also took place at universities, like the struggle session for the professor You Xiaoli, as recounted by Anne Thurston, in Enemies of the People:

You Xiaoli was standing, precariously balanced, on a stool. Her body was bent over from the waist into a right angle, and her arms, elbows stiff and straight, were behind her back, one hand grasping the other at the wrist. It was the position known as "doing the airplane." Around her neck was a heavy chain, and attached to the chain was a blackboard, a real blackboard, one that had been removed from a classroom at the university where You Xiaoli, for more than ten years, had served as a full professor. On both sides of the blackboard were chalked her name and the myriad crimes she was alleged to have committed...

The scene was taking place at the university, too, in a sports field at one of China's most prestigious institutions of higher learning. In the audience were You Xiaoli's students and colleagues and former friends. Workers from local factories and peasants from nearby communes had been bussed in for the spectacle. From the audience came repeated, rhythmic chants ... "down with You Xiaoli! Down with You Xiaoli!"

"I had many feelings at that struggle session," recalls You Xiaoli. "I thought there were some bad people in the audience. But I also thought there were many ignorant people, people who did not understand what was happening, so I pitied that kind of person. They brought workers and peasants into the meetings, and they could not understand what was happening. But I was also angry."

Struggle sessions have been revived, and exported to America. They come in many forms.

Forced apologies.

Beatings in public—like the mob attack on Rand Paul.

Or the 12-year-old boy who was sucker-punched.

Or the 12-year-old boy who was stabbed for being white.

Anti-racism seminars, like the one in Seattle.

Or the one involving Sandia Labs executives seminar.

The long-awaited New York Attorney General's report on the sexual harassment allegations against Gov. Andrew Cuomo is out — and it is bad for Cuomo. The Democratic AG concluded that the Governor did sexually harass multiple women during his time in office.

On Tuesday's radio program, Glenn Beck questioned is the AG's report would be enough for Democrats to condemn him and call for his resignation? This is what the #MeToo movement was started for, Glenn noted, if Gov. Cuomo doesn't resign quickly, that says a whole lot about today's Democratic Party.

Critical race theory: The education trap

The fall semester isn't far away. If you aren't prepared for that, someone else is. Predatory behavior. The most important takeaway from this piece is, whatever is happening on campuses right now is what is going to play out through the rest of society in about 30 years. We're seeing it right now with Critical Race Theory.

It started on the campus. It started in the classroom. And our children are set to be the next victims in the cultural warfare for a nightmare that seems like it will never end.

Colleges are manipulating the system.

It's a little ironic that colleges are overflowing with Marxist professors who preach the Gospel of Karl Marx in their classrooms, because academia in America is the perfect example of capitalist achievement. If anything, colleges are manipulating the system in a way that should make Marxists furious. And they hurt the people that Marxism is supposed to rescue.

Colleges are an enterprise. They are Big Business. It means nothing to them to send thousands of students into debt—not if it means the campus will get a new fountain or another office for the Diversity and Inclusion department.

They'll never admit it, but a big part of their problem is that they have put so much into the myth of progress. They can't even admit that it's a myth. Because it's useful to them.

Roger Scruton once said:

Hence the invocations of "progress", of "growth", of constant "advance" towards the goal which, however, must remain always somewhere in the future.

In reality, they don't give a damn about actual progress.

That's how they have turned academia into instruments of social engineering. They use college to change society.

Their purpose is no longer educational. It's social. They're using the classrooms to cause social change.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere were joined by Pat Gray to discuss "woke" Olympic athletes.

In this clip, the guys discussed how "bravely" some athletes are for threatening to protest the national anthem, for twerking on stage, and for showing off how woke they are.

Glenn reminded America of actual bravery at the Olympics when Jesse Owens won the gold medal at the Berlin Olympics. "He [Owens] was oppressed," Glenn said.
