We, The Civilized
Someday it will be worthwhile to look back on this shut-down of the American Government and remember exactly what the reason was:
Orientalism carries with a certain faux-Feminism that allegedly entails cadres of Western Feminists rescuing the women of the so-called Third World from the inherent patriarchal norms of their un-Enlightened society, a crude caricature of the actual women in the name of the feminine mystique of Oriental womanhood. As the Arabic saying goes, 'The man who points one finger points three at himself'. That these men in the GOP are in fact the most racist and reactionary towards immigrants from the Middle East just doubles the inherent hypocrisy in their agenda to roll this country back to Gilded Age patriarchal norms.
