Laura Bush Defends The Hijab

And wins applause from the far-left who commend her for pushing back against we weirdo right-wingers who think it’s important to take a stance against a culture that oppresses women to the point where they must cover themselves extensively while in public.

The idea that these Islamic nations have “religious choice” is about as absurd as Ted Turner’s suggestion that the Soviet Union had religious choice.
And by the way, as a cultural phenomenon Islam’s requirement that women wear hijabs or burkas is ever bit as appalling as China’s tradition of foot binding. These women aren’t covering up by choice. They’re covering up because if they don’t they’ll be beaten into submission, or worse.
