A woman in Iran has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for removing her hijab in an act of protest.

Shaparak Shajarizadeh said she was jailed for “opposing the compulsory hijab” and “waving a white flag of peace in the street” in a post on her blog.

In Iran, which is an Islamic theocracy, it is required that women wear hijabs at all time. Throughout Iran, #FreeIran protests have erupted almost daily since December 2017 by Iranians is protest of the oppressive Iranian regime under Iran’s Supreme leader Ali Khamenei.

Since February, over 29 women have been arrested in Iran for removing their hijabs.

Nasrin Sotoudeh, a human rights lawyer who represented Shajarizadeh and other women who have been arrested for removing their hijabs, was arrested in June.

According to Shajarizadeh lawyers, Shajarizadeh was tortured and beaten as a form of punishment after she was arrested for removing her hijab.

Women in Iran who violate the compulsory hijab law in public face punishments ranging from a $25 fine to prison time.

While women in Iran are being imprisoned and beaten for taking off their hijabs, self proclaimed leaders of the anti- Trump Women’s March and liberal feminist movement in the United States, including Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory have actively encouraged women to wear and celebrate the hijab, even making the face of their movement a woman in an American flag hijab and promoting fake holidays such as “International Hijab Day”.

Regarding the issue of women being arrested and tortured in the streets of Iran for removing their compulsory hijabs, pro-hijab, pro-Jihad, and pro-Sharia Law Linda Sarsour was not available for comment.

San Francisco Dumps Environmentalism, Bans Reusable Bags at Grocery Stores During Coronavirus Pandemic

Environmentalism is thrown by the wayside during a crisis.

Published

on

The ultra left-wing city of San Francisco, Calif. is bailing on environmentalism during a time of great crisis, banning the use of reusable plastic bags at grocery stores temporarily due to concerns regarding the spread of coronavirus.

The San Francisco Department of Public Health has issued an ordinance preventing city residents from taking reusable items into the public and using them in essential stores. They believe this will make it more difficult for germs to proliferate throughout the city.

“There is no effective treatment or cure yet for the disease, testing ability while improving remains constrained, and San Francisco’s health care system is at ongoing risk of being overwhelmed. For these reasons, it is imperative that San Francisco not only extend the duration of its stay at home order but also further limit essential activities and extend social distancing requirements outside the home,” the ordinance reads.

San Francisco Mayor London Breed has not hesitated to shut down civil society in order to combat the spread of coronavirus. She has effectively tossed environmentalism to the wayside, showing that the frequent leftist bugaboo is not actually a pressing concern.

“I can’t reiterate enough how important it is for all of us to continue to comply, for all of us to continue to be good citizens, to cooperate,” said Breed, who has issued lockdown edicts that last until at least May 3.

In 2007, San Francisco was the first city in America to ban the use of plastic shopping bags. The leftists on the Board of Supervisors enacted this prohibition to satisfy Mother Earth and potentially start a trend throughout the country.

“I am astounded and surprised by the worldwide attention,” Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi said at the time, according to the SFGate. “Hopefully, other cities and other states will follow suit.”

The grocery store lobby in the state came out against the regulation at the time, believing that it would accomplish little to help the environment and only serve to frustrate consumers.

“We’re disappointed that the Board of Supervisors is going down this path,” said Kristin Power, who worked as the vice president of government relations for the California Grocers Association.

“It will frustrate recycling efforts and will increase both consumer and retailer costs. There’s also a real concern about the availability and quality of compostable bags,” she added.

By instituting their emergency measures, San Francisco has demonstrated that environmental concerns are not particularly important in the grand scheme of things. These lofty goals are put on the back burner when a real crisis, such as the coronavirus panic, takes precedence.
