• HUFFPO Thinks Muslim Hip Hop Is Beautiful – Um…Only If You Like Dancing Sheets

    If you just watched the video. Step 1, stop laughing. File this under…you gotta see it to believe it.

    The Huffington Post recently ran a piece titled, Muslim Hip-Hop Dancers Break Down Stereotypes While Breaking It Down In Niqab.

    The video of the dance called, We’re Muslim, Don’t Panic may have the exact opposite result.

    Watching three solid black sheets “Dance” around may not truly be classified as Hip Hop to begin with, but it definitely reinforces the stereotypes HuffPo thinks they are breaking down.

    The Niqab is a traditional garb that only has functionality in a sandy climate. Wearing it in another climate in an act of reverence is done so only to keep women oppressed.

    It is shocking that the most vehement feminists on our planet…the all female editorial board of the Huffington Post…is fine celebrating a globally coordinated persecution of women.

    From the Huffington Post:

    The hip-hop group “We’re Muslim, Don’t Panic“ was conceived of by dancer Amirah Sackett in 2011, a moment Sackett referred to as “a really tumultuous time in history as far as Islam is concerned.” Just seven years earlier, France banned students from wearing hijab to school, the headscarves that in Islamic tradition represent modesty and morality.

    Although much of the Western rhetoric surrounding the hijab, niqab and burka focuses on the importance of freedom and empowerment, Sackett noticed that by forbidding women to wear certain clothing, France wasn’t liberating women, but controlling them.

    Determined to shift the terms of the conversation, she teamed up with dancers Iman and Khadijah to create WMDC, a three-woman performance group that executes flawless hip-hop numbers in niqab and high-tops.

    I wanted to flip the script,“ Sackett told Bust Magazine. “I wanted to educate others and reflect the beauty that I know and love in Muslim women. Yes, there are oppressed women in the Muslim world. Women are oppressed the world over. These are our mutual struggles.”

    There may be oppressed women all over the world, but statistically more of them are Muslim women than any other group.

    Here are some examples: ISIS stones five women to death for not wearing the Hijab. 

    You may say that only happens in the middle east. Well then, how about this one, Missouri Professor assaults teen girl for not wearing Hijab.

    What would have happened to these Muslim women had they chosen to do their dance in a swimsuit? Would they be stoned to death?

    American liberals need to stop worshiping at the alter of abuse disguised as religious tolerance.
