Democratic 2020 presidential candidate Marianne Williamson said it’s “unacceptable” for the Trump administration to consider pulling troops out of Afghanistan because we need to ensure “the rights and protection of women” who were abused by the Taliban.
“The US withdrawing troops from Afghanistan without ensuring the rights and protection of women is is unacceptable,” Williamson tweeted on Saturday. “The Taliban’s history of brutality towards women must not be forgotten or ignored in these negotiations.”
Williamson linked to a propaganda piece from the New York Times justifying endless war to “woke” liberals by claiming the U.S. is in Afghanistan to advance feminism.
Howard Dean last year similarly said we need to continue the endless war in Afghanistan to advance feminism:
“By withdrawing our troops from Afghanistan you are condemning millions of women to the Stone Age. No education, no choice about who they marry. They will become property when the Taliban takes over. Is that what you really want Ro? “
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last year also suggested we need to overthrow Iran’s government to spread feminism:
“As seen from the hijab protests, the brutal men of the regime seem to be particularly terrified by Iranian women who are demanding their rights. As human beings with inherent dignity & inalienable rights, the women of #Iran deserve same freedoms the men of Iran have.”
