This week I headed to DTLA for my THIRD ever Women’s March. The usual suspects were out and about. As usual not much got accomplished.

An image of the sign was posted on The Donald subreddit with the caption, “Which of you beautiful bastards plastered these all over SW Austin last night? My next door app is blowing up with confusion. Absolutely hilarious.”
The posters previously appeared in Winchester, Massachusetts, causing a mini moral panic and the police to be called in to investigate.
They also popped up in Limerick, Ireland, prompting a local councillor to assert that the signs were intended to “incite hate” towards “either women or Muslims” (she wasn’t sure who).
The meme is a 4chan troll designed to confuse muddled leftists who attempt to support Islam and women’s rights at the same time without realizing how the two contradict each other.
What makes the meme funny is that leftists routinely react with outrage, but don’t know quite who to be outraged on behalf of.
If they find the message offensive, they can be accused of being bigoted towards Muslims.
However, if they don’t sufficiently explain why they are offended, they can be accused of being hateful towards women, given how some women are treated as second class citizens in Islamic societies.
“The result is that those who attempt to explain why the act is offensive end up simply tying themselves in knots, while revealing that they have never given a moment’s thought to the position they find themselves defending,” writes Alla Al-Ameri.
“This seems to generate even more anger, with the inevitable online mob quickly joined by politicians, journalists and other public figures, eager to see that the heretic is made an example of.”

The clip shows Abd Al-Aziz Al-Khazraj Al-Ansari showing how to beat your wife in an Islamically permissible fashion.
According to Al-Ansari, a man must sometimes beat his wife “out of love” so that “life can move on.”
Although emphasizing that the beating should be light and painless, Al-Ansari said it was necessary so the wife could feel her husband’s “masculinity and strength” as well as her own “femininity”.
While demonstrating the procedure by grabbing, shaking and slapping a boy who appeared to be his son, Al-Ansari said, “I told you not to leave the house! How many times do I have to tell you?”
Justifying the act, Al-Ansari said, “Some wives like domineering and authoritative husbands, by nature they like violent and powerful husbands.”
Although the original video appears to have been deleted, the YouTube channel that hosted it is still active.
Presumably, YouTube is fine with demonstrations of wife beating performed on children, but Alex Jones had to be completely terminated because ‘reasons’.
Meanwhile, Muslim country Brunei just passed a new law that allows gay people to be stoned to death. Progressives across the west took to the streets to denounce such vile homophobia.
Oh no, wait, they’re still whining about Mike Pence’s gay conversion therapy.

In a statement posted to the Virginia House GOP website, House Speaker Kirk Cox revealed that Republicans are behind the effort to give Fairfax’s alleged victims the opportunity to make their accusations in a public forum, and are being barred by Democrats from giving the women the opportunity.
Cox revealed that Republican legislators “have communicated with attorneys representing Dr. Vanessa Tyson and Ms. Meredith Watson,” and learned that “Tyson and Ms. Watson are prepared to share their accounts at a legislative hearing, only if there is bipartisan cooperation to conduct the hearing.”
He elaborated that “Unfortunately, despite the compelling accounts we have heard from Dr. Tyson and Ms. Watson on television in recent days, Delegate Filler-Corn has made clear that she will not agree to a bipartisan General Assembly hearing of any nature,” with the Democrat legislator adding that the party does not believe it is the correct forum for such a hearing.
Accusers Meredith Watson and Dr. Vanessa Tyson have both expressed willingness to meet with Virginia authorities and legislators to make their accusations publicly. Watson went on record in an op-ed published in February condemning Democrats for refusing to allow her to make her case publicly, even as her personal life was parsed apart by investigators and the media to determine the quality of her character.
Meredith Watson, who alleges that Fairfax raped her in 2000 while they were both college students, wrote an opinion article in The Washington Post decrying the media and politicians’ short memory, and saying she is willing to testify publicly.
In her article, she said that she has refused calls from politicians and media outlets to make the alleged rape a partisan issue or media talking point, and as such has been ignored.
Watson also stated that reporters and researchers have dug into every facet of her personal life, going as far as researching her elementary school records in an attempt to find evidence she may be untrustworthy or lying about the alleged rape.
Fairfax, who blamed the alleged victims for causing harm to him in the media circus following their accusations, has thus far felt no meaningful consequences for his alleged actions, even after many of his staffers resigned following the accusations.
He was, however, unceremoniously fired from his position as chairman of the Democratic Lieutenant Governors association.
Fairfax remains an elected official in Virginia, with local Democrats circling the wagons to protect him.
