Washington Post: Why Didn’t Biden Plan to Get Female Activists Out of Afghanistan?

Washington Post: Why Didn’t Biden Plan to Get Female Activists out of Afghanistan?

So, for all the Never Trumpers (which would include former Southern Baptist Beth Moore) and the liberals and leftists who claim to be against sexism, to claim they were repulsed by Trump’s “grab ’em” line, I’d like for you to grapple with Democrat failure of women – this botched withdrawl was carried out under a Democratic Party administration (Joe Biden’s), with the first ever woman Vice President, Kamala Harris.

Good question. The need to protect women and children from the depravity of the Taliban’s seventh-century ideology had been one of the driving forces for sustained American engagement in Afghanistan.

That includes Barack Obama as well as the two Republican presidents who bookended his administration.

Now, however, the NGOs and activists encouraged by those policies to work in Afghanistan find themselves stuck in the collapse, the Washington Post reports. It takes quite a few paragraphs to get to the reason why, however:

While the administration in recent weeks has acted to accelerate the processing of SIV applicants and began airlifting applicants and their families out of Afghanistan, it has not done so for others who might be targeted by the Taliban because of their affiliation with international organizations but who are not eligible for the SIV program.

Several people involved in the evacuation effort said they were shocked by the Biden administration’s lack of preparation for the possibility that female activists and other vulnerable Afghans would be at risk and require aid — especially given how central the issue of women’s rights has been to the U.S. project in Afghanistan.

It was an effort cited by successive American presidents as a justification for the U.S. presence. …

Amed Khan, a New York-based philanthropist and human rights advocate who has been working to evacuate at-risk Afghans, said that between the SIV applicants, women’s rights activists and other allies, thousands of people have “risked their lives implementing our agenda for the last 20 years.”

This, *This,* of All things, is the Litmus Test in the Biden Administration? Are Liberals, Democrats Serious About This? Regarding: Marijuana Vs. Sexism

This, *This,* of All things, is the Litmus Test in the Biden Administration? Are Liberals, Democrats Serious About This? Regarding: Marijuana Vs. Sexism

I don’t know how fair it is to hold Joe Biden accountable for much of anything these days, as the guy apparently is in early stages dementia and doesn’t even know what year it is.

Maybe Kamala Harris is the actual POTUS (President) in practice, if not in name right now, and Biden is the feeble figure head only, who knows?

Having said that, Biden and his Democratic Party administration are FINE and dandy with saying they oppose sexism,
YET,
they also defend sexist pro-Transgender policies (such as allowing biological boys who “identify as girls”) into girls’ sports, thus depriving actual girls of scholarship opportunities and positions on sports teams.

Biden and most (not all, but most) Democrats, leftists, and progressives are FINE with that sort of unfairness against girls and women; allowing men and boys to succeed at the expense of actual females;  I guess I can dub that “Trans Sexism.”

But, smoking marijuana, (a habit I am rather neutral on, and no, I’ve never smoked it myself) is considered a fire-worthy offense by the Biden administration?

Biden administration: Sexism fine, smoking pot bad.

Seems to me that in some ways, smoking marijuana is less harmful than allowing biological males into biological female spaces.
But such is the wacko, nutty, inconsistent, stupid practices and beliefs of most Democrats, Leftists, Progressives and Liberals these days.

(I can’t say most of this on Twitter – they will suspend you for saying any of this over there – Twitter doesn’t like the truth getting out on their platform.)

by Z. Folk, March 2021

A number of White House staffers were asked to resign or demoted for past marijuana use — regardless of whether those employees had been in one of the 14 states where the drug is legal, according to a report.

The Biden administration had required workers to disclose past marijuana use on a background check form, but told some new hires that it would “overlook” those who answered yes, the (Link): Daily Beast reported.

If you seriously think that Democrats, liberals, Never Trump Republicans, leftists, or progressives really and truly care about fighting sexism or care for actual (biological) girls and women, I have a bridge in Brooklyn I’d like to sell you.

Open your eyes: liberals, progressives, Democrats, Never Trumpers do NOT care about women, girls, or in fighting sexism.

Look at what they DO, not at what they SAY.
