Mattel Goes Full SJW: Puts Barbie in a Hijab

Published

on

Barbie has always been portrayed as a strong woman — holding over 150 careers over the course of the 58 years that she has been on shelves — but now Mattel has decided to pander to social justice warriors and put the iconic doll in a hijab.

The doll will be modeled after Ibtihaj Muhammad, the American fencer who won a bronze medal while wearing a hijab in the Olympics last year.

Barbie, a dog lover, has been riding around in pink corvettes since 1962 — just two years after the dolls launched in 1959. She has been an astronaut, a veterinarian, a doctor and even the president.

Yet, for the new addition to the “Shero” line, a play on the word “hero,” the toy company will be pushing misogyny and covering Barbie’s locks so that men can control themselves — instead of aligning themselves with the secular and former Muslims who have rejected subjugation. 

For many former Muslims, the hijab is a symbol of the fact that Islam considers women to be second class citizens. Mattel has chosen to glamorize their oppression.

“For tens of millions of women around the world, Islamic head covering and isolation are not a matter of choice. In India, the practice of Purdah — keeping women shut away in walled compounds — has been a part of the culture since the time of the Mughal conquest. In Iran, Afghanistan, and some parts of Saudi Arabia women face fines, beatings, and worse for daring to show their hair. Before the U.S. deposed Saddam Hussein, Iraq had one of the highest rates in the Middle East of women in Ph.D. programs. Today, a woman with her head uncovered in some parts of Baghdad may be a target,” an op-ed in the Huffington Post in 2014 explained.

While many women, especially in the United States, claim that wearing the hijab is empowering because it is “their choice” the other “choice” often involves being beaten or disowned by their families.

Perhaps a better “Shero” to immortalize with a doll would have been Maryam Namazie, a former Muslim who runs the “One Law For All“ Campaign. The aim of her England-based organization is to fight for Islamic women to have equal rights and to be able to wear whatever they want. Despite receiving death threats over her work and a glaring lack of support from the leftists who pride themselves on being feminists…“she persisted.”

“I think that having strong legs helped me win a medal at the Olympic Games, so I wanted my legs to be larger, more athletic legs, toned legs. And I am very into eyeliner, so I wanted a strong-winged cat eye. And Mattel listened to everything, everything even down to the fabric of the hijab,” Muhammad said Monday night at the Glamour Women of the Year gala in New York.

The Muhammad doll is slated to go on sale in the Fall of 2019. Equal rights not included.

Second Christian Pastor Charged for Holding Church Services During Coronavirus Lockdown

Christian gatherings are being criminalized.

Another Christian pastor is being charged with crimes for holding church services during the coronavirus lockdown.

Mark Anthony Spell, a Central, La. pastor, is receiving six misdemeanor charges for disobeying Gov. John Bel Edwards’ emergency shutdown edicts after he held church services this past weekend.

“Over the last two weeks I have worked with the sheriff, state police, the state fire marshal, Reverend Tony Perkins, and others to address this matter outside of legal action. Mr. Spell made his intentions to continue to violate the law clear. Instead of showing the strength and resilience of our community during this difficult time, Mr. Spell has chosen to embarrass us for his own self-promotion,” said Central Police Chief Roger Corcoran, who issued the misdemeanor summons to Spell.

“Mr. Spell will have his day in court where he will be held responsible for his reckless and irresponsible decisions that endangered the health of his congregation and our community. This is not an issue over religious liberty, and it’s not about politics. We are facing a public health crisis and expect our community’s leaders to set a positive example and follow the law,” he added.

Spell has allegedly convened six unlawful church services at his Life Tabernacle Church hosting more individuals at his worship proceedings than what is allowed by the state. East Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar Moore said Spell is receiving a misdemeanor count for every time he allegedly violated the edict. They will not charge everyone who gathered unlawfully at the church but will attempt to make an example of Spell because “encouraged others to violate” the law.

“Without his actions, the others would not come,” Moore said. “Practically, it would be very difficult to charge that number of people even if we were not in the crisis we are in.”

Spell sees his case as being paramount for nationwide fight on behalf of religious liberty against tyrannical government.

“This is a scary time for our nation. Our religious freedoms are under persecution and attack,” Spell said. “This is an attack on all Christians across the world.”

“If this is not about religion, then are the Waltons not being issued summons and arrested for keeping Walmart open?” Spell asked. “Nobody will tell us as God fearing Christians and Americans that we are non-essential in our society.”

He vows to continue holding church services publicly in Louisiana no matter what the consequences from the state turn out to be.

“When you close every door in this city, we’ll close this door and we’ll go underground, but we are going to assemble and congregate as God fearing Christians,” Spell said. “If they are to arrest me and take me out of this congregation, my assistant pastor will step in immediately, when he is arrested, the third man will step in.”

Big League Politics reported yesterday on the other pastor who has been charged with holding illegal church services under new coronavirus edicts:

A Pro-Trump pastor has been arrested for hosting churches services in Florida. This appears to be the first case of this kind under the Chinese Coronavirus pandemic.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office obtained an arrest warrant for Rev. Rodney Howard-Browne the pastor of The River Church, a mega church in Tampa, Florida for hosting two worship services at his church this past Sunday.

State Attorney Andrew Warren remarked, “I think it’s unfortunate that the pastor here is hiding behind the First Amendment. One, it’s absolutely clear that emergency orders like this are constitutional and valid. Second of all, leaders from our faith-based community across this country have embraced the importance of social distancing.”

“Because of the reckless disregard of public safety and after repeated requests and warnings, I worked with our state attorney, Andrew Warren, to obtain a warrant for unlawful assembly and violation of public health emergency rules, both of which are second degree misdemeanors,” Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister said. “Our goal here is not to stop anyone from worshiping, but the safety and well-being of our community must always come first.”

Freedom of religion could soon be a lost vestige of the past because of the mass hysteria that has resulted from the coronavirus pandemic.
