Don't fall for Katha Pollitt, Jill Filipovic, Amanda Marcotte or the other fakers pretending to be feminists

I find this interesting, the clammy Whitness of faux feminism.

Rebecca was explaining that Katha Pollitt (pro Israeli hag masquerading as a feminist) couldn't even Tweet about Gaza.  So I went to the hag's Twitter feed and find this on the side:

I guess it's White, White world always.

Cat Stevens got it wrong, "Oh, baby, it's a White world."

Of the women above only Rebecca Traister qualifies as a feminist.  Jill's a back stabbing bitch as any African-American woman knows.  Love how she posted bathing suit photos of herself while the country was protesting the Iraq War, by the way.  Little Jessie was always a joke, we don't need to go into that Mud Flap Gal.  Cecile's a middle aged nothing who got her post because of who Mommy was -- heaven forbid a White man or White woman ever have to earn anything themselves.  Then there's racist Amanda Marcotte who not only steals the work of my sisters without crediting them, she also published a book -- in 2008 -- supposedly about feminism where the illustrations were all of White women and the White women were being attacked by . . . dark 'savages' in Africa.  She's a f**king racist and shame on anyone who tries to pretend otherwise.

Replying to 
Those that don’t quite get it confuse Black Girl Magic with Black girl mules. We are magic but are also tired of being the mules, doing all the work and being disrespected at the same time.

There's a whole world of feminism outside the Polyster Pant Suited White Faux Feminists.

And those of us of color damn well know it.

I see something like this (below) and realize what all we are up against.

PLEASE BOOST! HELP: I’m currently trying to pay the moving company so that I can move from Philly to Austin to start my PhD program in August. I need $857 by mid-August. Please donate if you can. Thank you so much!

We have to depend upon one another.  We're not like racist Jill Filipovic who can graduate law school without a care in her head and go to another country on a celebration vacation.

No, we're the ones who graduate wondering how the hell we're going to pay our bills and raise our children.

1st World Bitches should be the name for these White faux feminists who preach greed and dstruction and war and try to pass off their half-baked noodles as poetry.

Katha Pollitt is all that is wrong with the US.

This is C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"

Tuesday, July 10, 2018.  It's anniversary time -- one year, in fact.

July 9th of last year, the Iraqi government, led by prime minister Hayder al-Abadi, declared Mosul liberated.  How's that gone?

Original drone footage by in shows remaining devastation of 1 year after the it was retaken from . More than 380k people still displaced, 54,000 home still destroyed, & 8 mil tons of debris still scattered across the city.


All that 'success.' Hard to believe the Iraqi people didn't storm the polls on May 12th to vote for Hayder and give him a second term?

It's only hard to believe if you bought the crap the corporate media was selling in the long lead up to the Iraqi elections.

Mosul still in ruins one year after 'liberation' from ISIL

It's been a year since the battle for , . With more than 90% of infrastructure and properties obliterated on the west side, people's lives, livelihoods, and lifelines have also been destroyed.


Today marks one year since was retaken from the Islamic State group. However one year later the city is still massively destroyed. 380,000 people are still displaced and face extreme living conditions

That's what 'liberation' looks like.  What a proud moment for the whole world.

XINHUA reports that the "smell of rotting bodies comes from under the rubbles" and:
In a coffee shop, where many workers used to gather after a hard day of cleaning up ruins of devastated buildings, blames were heard for the Baghdad government's neglecting the city.
A young man smoking a traditional water pipe, or Shisha as Iraqis name it, said he heard media reports on funds allocated by the Baghdad government to rebuild Mosul, but "actually we haven't seen any progress by this money. I wonder was it true or stolen by corrupt officials?"
"Dozens of thousands of people cannot come back to their homes, because they don't have money to rebuild their houses, not to mention the lack of basic public services in their neighborhoods," the young man said while he was inhaling deeply from the mouthpiece of the Shisha and exhaling a jet of white smoke.
"Can you imagine the misery of the people here, they even using water wells while the world is watching us?" the young man said, blaming the situation on corruption and failure of Iraqi politicians.
Islamic Relief notes, "Tons of explosive remnants are still littered all over the city and hundreds of thousands of people remain displaced because it is too dangerous for them to return home. Schools, hospitals and other public facilities have been damaged and destroyed."
Liberation, or 'liberation,' resulted in what is called the worst battle since WWII.  What did that battle look like?  A massacre.  A massacre where civilians couldn't be distinguished from combatants.
That's called a War Crime, by the way.  
Wilson Fache (THE NATIONAL) reports on the battle and notes:
One of the soldiers, his face scarred by shrapnel, recounted the final days of fighting. “Around 15 per cent of the civilians managed to flee, the others are in there,” he said, pointing to the murky waters of the Tigris. “We had to kill everyone. We couldn't tell friends from enemies.”
The violence never ends in Iraq. Margaret Griffis (ANTIWAR.COM)  notes, of Monday's violence, "At least 34 people were killed, and 11 were wounded in recent violence."
