Hamas and Rape Atrocities Reveal Monstrous Moral Void of the American Left

Hamas Israel Palestine Flags

The hypocrisy and antisemitism of leftists who claim to be feminists were on ugly display this week when Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., was asked about rapes, torture and murders of women and girls committed by Palestinian terrorists who invaded Israel on Oct. 7.

In an effort to downplay the appalling crimes by Hamas and allied terrorists reminiscent of Nazi atrocities during the Holocaust, Jayapal told CNN: “Sexual assault is horrific. I think that it happens in war situations. … However, I think we have to be balanced about bringing in the outrages against Palestinians” committed by Israel.

“We have to be balanced?” This sounds like Jayapal, who heads the Congressional Progressive Caucus, wants to somehow justify the unjustifiable genocidal sexual violence that terrorists inflicted on Israel two months ago. This attempt at moral relativism and her quip about rape, that “it happens,” is akin to Rep. Ilham Omar’s repugnant remark that “some people did something” to describe the obscene devastation of the September 11th attacks. The only way to describe these remarks and attitudes is as illustrations of a grotesque and monstrous moral void.

The bloodthirsty savages who attacked Israel murdered over 1,200 mostly unarmed people — ranging in age from babies to the elderly — and abducted about 240 to Gaza, where about 137 are believed still held. Americans and other foreigners were among the victims.

Conservative women’s groups — including the Feminists for Life and Concerned Women for America — quickly condemned Hamas for its rape and murder spree. But the prominent liberal women’s groups have been disgracefully silent, or months late with shallow comments meant as gestures. Over 20 didn’t respond when Fox News asked for their views on Hamas war crimes.

The National Organization for Women issued a statement on November 30th, almost a full 8 weeks after the October 7th massacre, headlined “NOW condemns the use of rape as a weapon of war.” That’s brave. And, of course, the statement didn’t contain the words “Israel,” “Hamas,” or “Jews.” Responding in this manner means they have never made a statement about Hamas’ October 7th crime against humanity, and instead released a word salad template that could have been released at any time for any reason about a supposed general principle. It’s almost as though they didn’t want to condemn what’s happening at all.

This illustrates something important about left-wing feminism: it’s never really been feminism at all, which would be dedicated to advancing the welfare, rights and freedoms for all women. Instead, it’s been global leftists exploiting social and civil rights issues here and around the world for power and money, as they divide and weaken Western society even more.

Being female is a matter of biology, not ideology, nationality, religion or economic status. Yet many leftists absurdly refuse to acknowledge conservatives and members of the “oppressor class” (including Jews) as authentic women. For example, leftist feminist icon Gloria Steinem has been known to dismiss the actual femaleness of women who refuse to conform to liberal orthodoxy

The United Nations — dominated by countries hostile to Israel — is no better than Jayapal and leftist feminists in failing to condemn Hamas for its war crimes.

It wasn’t until November 24 that U.N. Women — an organization created to “uphold women’s human rights” — posted on X: “We remain alarmed by gender-based violence reports on Oct. 7 & call for rigorous investigation, prioritizing the rights, needs & safety of those affected.”

But no investigation is needed. Terrorists proudly recorded videos of their barbaric rampage, including sadistic gang rapes and cutting off body parts of their victims before murdering them. These videos, along with statements of eyewitnesses and captured terrorists, prove that Hamas is guilty of the deadliest single-day attack on Jews since the Holocaust.

On Monday, December 4th, the start of the week leading into Hanukkah, hundreds of women protested in New York against the U.N.’s failure to condemn Hamas. Some wore bodysuits painted red around their groins and breasts and their mouths were taped shut. Others chanted: “Me too, unless you are a Jew” and “rape has no context.” Rabbi Joanna Samuels called the U.N. “an institution that has lost its moral compass” and “failed all women.”

Israel hosted an event at the U.N. on the same day featuring Sheryl Sandberg (the former chief operating officer of Facebook and founder of the group Lean In), Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), and other women calling on the international organization and women’s groups to condemn Hamas. Even Hillary Clinton — who famously attacked women victimized by the sexual misconduct of her husband, then-President Bill Clinton — sent in a videotaped statement showing solidarity with Israeli women.

Like Dr. Frankenstein being shocked at the nature of his creation, perhaps these older, wealthy, and powerful leftist women may be shocked into finally grasping that their movement was in fact a monster. “You need to be able to say that rape is unacceptable and sexual violence is unacceptable,” Sandberg told Fox News. “If we don’t stand up against this, we lose our humanity.” Someone should tell Sandberg many of us have been warning for decades that the left was strangling the humanity out of us.

Many on the left, including feminists who complain about every supposed sexist microaggression, have foolishly embraced the butchers of Hamas as “freedom fighters.”

But Hamas is a dictatorial Islamist tyranny that severely limits freedom for the Palestinians it rules in Gaza. Life there was a nightmare for Palestinians — especially women — long before the current war with Israel began. Like the Taliban, Hamas grants few rights to women, restricts the jobs they can hold and the clothing they can wear, and largely bars them from senior positions in government.

The Hamas charter says the primary role of women is to “manufacture men and play a great role in guiding and educating” children. Not exactly the position of American progressives. Manufacturing men… At least someone is trying to talk some sense into the “Lesbians for Palestine” crowd!

Most of us have heard the slogan “Sisterhood is powerful.” Unfortunately, antisemitism is also powerful and a force for evil that has resulted in thousands of years of persecution of Jews. Leftists who embrace this vile hatred are neither true feminists nor progressives. They are bigots.

Failing to condemn rape, torture and murder of women — no matter who they are— is immoral, indecent and intolerable. It is disgusting and yet revealing that some of the left won’t acknowledge this fact.

Let us count the ways of left Democrats immorality: 1. Love to kill the unborn for any reason…2. Despise and persecute Christians and Jewish faith…3. Hate women as they refuse to define their existence…4. Hate the United States…5. Hate the Constitution…6. Love drag gueens and transvestites…7. Hate history…8. Love grooming children…9. Love terrorist who behead babies in a nursery…10. Love green new deals over American prosperity (even though it’s all a bunch of crap)…11. Despise the family unit…12. Love to spend other people’s money yet hate capitalism while they drive around in $100k cars and live lavish lives…so basically they are human trash in every tenant of humanity…

Is this the same American left who said all women must be believed during the Cavanaugh confirmation hearings and when Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby were on trial? Apparently the women’s groups on the left only speak out in support of women when the women they’re supporting are in certain groups and those identity groups are on the left.

Anyone with any sort of intelligence should not be surprised by this. Who are these morons pandering to, the small percentage of (mostly younger people) that actually believes the BS being pushed in American college’s? The media is a train wreck and “higher education” is the worst it’s ever been in America. These are the two main places where serious changes must happen. The media needs to lose its privileges and protections from lawsuits, etc.. The media needs to be required to give both sides of a topic.

Any member of Congress, or any organization that can’t stand up and loudly condemn the dog like monstrosities of Hamas trash, should be themselves condemned, expelled, or terminated. America is a Judeo/Christian nation and will stand with Israel forever. Those who disagree are welcome to leave and go die with the Hamas monsters that Israel and if needed we will be putting down like mad dogs. There must never be a Palestine on Israeli land. If those who think there should be a Palestine still do, it needs to be somewhere in the Middle East away from Israel. We do not want people here who support terrorist of any kind. Any Leftist who tries to see this any other way is a Lunaticsl that has no place in our nation. The next two Administration’s which surely must be Conservative will need at least two terms to reverse the Socialist Leftist destruction these last three years have brought upon our great nation. “The integrity and survival of our Republic rest now more than ever upon the willingness of citizens to intelligently participate.” Research, Think, Pray. Patriots must realize it’s time to take back control of our We The People Gov’t. We have a nation to save.

I have been following Tammy Bruce since I lived in LA and listened to her on her radio program. She is insightful, smart and brave in her commentaries. Once a liberal herself and a member of NOW, she has turned the corner after filtering through the propaganda of the Left and noting the dearth of ethics, morality and the great hypocrisy of Leftist women that she makes clear in this article. I hope and pray that the women of our country have eyes wide open and are listening to the revolting spew that is coming from the left regarding the savage beheadings, rapes (until the women’s pelvis fractures!),roasting alive of babies, and heretofore unimagined tortures by the barbarians. I hope intelligent and empathetic women throughout the U.S. remember all of this hypocrisy (in context, of course!) and god-awful obfuscation coming from the pompous, smug university presidents and their ilk — and vote enmasse to get rid of them, terminate from all official positions of any influence at all.

Maybe all the female Hamas supports could offer up their bottoms in exchange for the releasing of the captives. Isn’t Islam and Hamas all about sex, sex and more sex in the name Allah…. Sorry for the graphics.

Hamas is pure evil. The “Islam” they profess is an atrocity and a pure affront to both women and men of any character or morals. And rape, no matter the context, is nothing but a savage crime perpetrated by pussies …. savages who feel some obscene “power” by exploiting those unable to defend themselves. They need to be met by someone who can.

The left is satanic cult. That anyone, not agreeing with them, has to go. If we haven’t seen this the past 3 years with their pushing of the trans agenda, the anti women and anti macho men is either deaf or blind or both. If you aren’t woke you have no value. You don’t take the vaccin you are a killer, while those taking the vaccin are COVID spreaders. The hatred ole Joe has for Trump and his supporters is palpable every day. It is prevalent at universities, where hatred for the right has been preached and taught for years and finally it is coming out in the open. Hatred is spouted by the leaders on the left across this country, but cracks are appearing thanks to those reps in the house and senate who keep investigating and investigating. The truth will win out, it has too if humanity is to survive.
Like today when the UN had the audacity to tell America stop eating meat. Genocide via a bad diet and hunger. We need meat to survive. That will kill us faster than the climate change. The left wants to tell you that people are dying left and right from climate change like they did from COVID. All deaths were listed as COVID deaths while many were accidental deaths or other diseases. But they had us under lockdown we could not right away find out how a person died. They were the boss and they want to keep it that way. H had the fall to say millions had died in Europe if climate change in Europe this past summer I have friends in many European countries and that is not true but the left throw stuff out there and see what sticks. Just consider the source, scaring people with lies is what they do best
ole Joe allows anti semitism to flourish on campuses and across America because he stands with Hamas. If we hadn’t gotten into WW II the Jews would have been annihilated then. America’s govt wasn’t interested in getting into the war not even after they knew of the Holocaust. And who was then in the White House?

This is what Hamas is doing yet the United Nations, our democrats and Communists and Socialist governments around the world are still defending them. The other Nations of Islam will continue to defend Hamas because they do the same thing to their own people so it’s everyday life in Islam. Doesn’t say much for the Mentality of those in the United States that still vote for the pigs in the democratic party that are defending everything Hamas is doing. But then again no one in their right mind would be dumb enough to support a party that supports a Terrorist Organization posing as a government.

I didn’t need hamas’ animalistic actions, and the left’s support thereof to convince me that the left and their adherents are completely devoid of morality. EVERYTHING they espouse is depraved and grossly immoral, and their followers are just as evil.

I totally agree! And because we have not raised our children, but let them grow up, their moral compass is missing as well. It will take at least a generation if not two to correct our mistake. I have some hope that this is beginning with family members making attendence in church a must. It takes looking to find one. I would not suggest just attending any old church will do. Only those who are being taught by a pastor who really knows and teaches the bible. Pray for Our Country!

Maybe we’d hear more from these groups if Hamas were guilty of using the wrong pronouns? The left are a joke; their “moral outrage” is reserved for political purposes. If they cared for women they’d be defending Title IX but women are just votes to them just like minorities are. And what has the left done for them except keep them uneducated, poor, and criminals.

We will always have these issues in the world until people and the Media stop using the deceitful nomenclatures to identify Islam. Talaban,Muslim Brother hood, Hamas, many others are ALL Islam! Islam is our enemy inspite of what your common sence tells you about the Golden Rule and treating others. Islam is litterly hell bent on killing any one who is NOT Muslim. It is in their history and in their writings. Islam needs to be recognized as the terror group that it is. The History of Muhammad and Islam should be taught in elementary schools and above. How many of you, know ANYTHING about Muhammad’s biography? From Islam’s Own written word; morality is dictated by necessity, and obligations do not extend beyond one’s tribe. This is a critical basis for the development of the Islamic attitude toward those outside the faith, including the moral principle that the ethics of any act are determined only by whether or not it benefits Muslims.

Anyone who has actually been paying attention to the behavior of the American LEFT in the last half-century can not be surprised at ANY new depth of Moral Depravity. They are inspired and informed by Atheist, Authoritarian Marxist-Leninist-Stalinist thinking.
Essentially, the American Left Leadership have rejected any pretense of respect for the rights of ANY OTHER HUMANS.
They will enthusiastically betray any principle, speak any lie, embrace any deception, if they think it will give them so much as a SECOND’s advantage in their quest to crush anyone who loves freedom.

Yes, sexual assault is horrific, but beheading babies or burning them alive in their cribs is far worse. These demoniacs need to be expunged from the Earth. This is fundamental Islam, Satan’s favorite creation next to “mud-to-mad evolutionism” and “anthropogenic climate change”.

For the last 40 years the “Progressives” have been indoctrinating our young people with their hate and disdain for our Constitution and all that it stands for. They do not teach history as it really happened, they put their far-left opinion stamp on it and omit all the good that the U.S. has done for others around the world. We are now reaping what was allowed to happen because no one thought we would fall to these depths so quickly. Now we see that corruption and lies are all around us and I don’t see a way out unless we can somehow stop the Marxist’s cheating in the 2024 elections. Are the Republicans even addressing that or do they all have their heads in the sand denying that it actually happened in all the last several elections? Better wake up and realize that we are on the cusp of becoming another Communist country.

I would challenge any sceptic to investigate for himself the heinous nature of Islam as exposed in the Quran, sura and hadith, which are the only 3 authorities recognized by Muslims. The sura and hadith are the sayings and stories of Mohammed. Mohammad’s favorite wife was Iesha who he married at age 6. But…he waited till age 9 to consummate the marriage. Muslim regard for women is horrendous. And for non Muslims, worse yet. But, if Mohammed says it’s OK, that’s OK. Unfortunately good muslims fear death for even possession of a bible..I pray for the true revelation of God to lead all people to salvation in Jesus name, amen.

There is waste in the military just like any other business and probably your bank account.

This only proves again that ALL of the things the left pretends to be the saviors of are nothing but smoke and mirrors to cover up their true motives and objectives; getting more power and control. They don’t really care about women, blacks, gays, the environment, or any of the other things they so strongly push for, it is all a screen to cover up their real intents to divide and conquer.
