On March 8, 2017, millions of women around America are expected to participate in a “general strike” in protest of President Donald, partially organized by none other than Rasmea Yousef Odeh – an actual convicted terrorist.
Yes, a convicted terrorist.
According to The New York Post, Odeh was convicted in Israel in 1970 for her role in not one but two terrorist bombings that killed two children.
She spent 10 years in prison for her crime then became a US citizen in 2004 after lying about her past – a separate crime she was caught for in 2014. She was later awarded the right to a new trial – set for later this year – after
She was later awarded the right to a new trial – set for later this year – after insisting she was suffering from PTSD when she filled out her immigration application.
What connection does she have to the upcoming women’s strike?
Well, Odeh was one of several authors of this Guardian article which touts January 21st’s women’s march as “the beginning of a new wave of militant feminist struggle” and gives women their marching orders for March 8.
The article orders women to mobilize in “blocking roads, bridges and squares, abstaining from domestic, care and sex work” and boycotting “pro-Trump” businesses.
Women are also instructed to wear red in solidarity as they engage in their “militant” act of feminism.
Rasmea Yousef Odeh isn’t the only women’s strike organizer with a dubious background.
Another co-author of that Guardian article is Angela Davis, a Stalinist professor who supported the Soledad Brothers, three inmates who murdered a prison guard at Soledad Prison.
Later, one of the inmates’ brother took several people – including a judge – hostage in order to free the men. He was using weapons that had been bought by none other than Angela Davis.
Angela became a fugitive and fled to California before agents finally tracked her down. She was later acquitted on murder charges, which she celebrated by going to Cuba.
So that’s an actual convicted terrorist and a Stalinist… surely there couldn’t possibly be any more dubious individuals involved in the women’s strike, could there?
Meet Tithi Battacharya.
According to The New York Post, Battacharya praised Maoism in an essay for the International Socialist Review.
She took pride in the fact that Maoists are on “the terrorist list of the US State Department, Canada and the European Union,” adding, “there can thus be no doubt that the Maoists are back in the news and by all accounts they are fighting against all the right people.”
What a lovely bunch.
