Ouch! Miss USA 2017 is not a Feminist

On Sunday, Kara McCullough, 25, a chemist at the US Nuclear Regulatory was crowned Miss USA 2017. She instantaneously became victim of American racism on social media for being Black and a woman (watch below).

On May 15, 2017, Todd Venezia slammed McCullough at the Jew York Post for making a few political wrong statements such as being not a feminist, a Jewish value. She also said that people should contribute (have a job) to benefit from government health care system.

I believe we’ve come a long way and there is more work to be done. I think domestically we are making progress and I do believe that we will become equal one day,”McCullough stated her view on feminism.

The other leading Israeli hasbara media like Fox News, Daily Beast, US TODAY, etc. connected McCullough’s statement with Israeli Gatekeeper Al-Right movement, which the Jewish Lobby portrays as antisemitic. The joke is that the Al-Rights leaders like Richard Spencer, Steve Bannon and his Breitbart News are all pro-Israel (Jewish Daily Forward, November 15, 2016) – and anti-Muslim just like Geert Wilders.

On May 16, Amy Zimmerman at Daily Beast even reported that McCullough had clarified her position on health care – it’s not a privilege but a right of every American citizen. However, to Amy’s great disappointment, McCullough refuses to apologize her views on feminism.

McCullough, however, found an admirer in Jewish occupied Australia. Rita Panahi, an Iranian-Australian journalist and critic of Islam, posted on Herald Sun that McCullough had the courage to say what the people in politics and media are afraid to say about feminism.

Outside the political and media class, the movement is increasingly being seen for what it is: toxic, divisive and too often dominated by fringe-dwelling frightbats. It’s little wonder the vast majority of women reject the label, with polls showing that as few as 9 per cent identify as feminists. Like most women in the developed world, McCullough believes wholeheartedly in equality but refuses to adopt the feminist label,” Panahi said.

In 2010, Indian-born American academic, author and anti-hijab, Dr. Asra Nomani claimed at Jewish Wall Street Journal: “I think Islam was originally a feminist religion. The Prophet Muhammad was a feminist, like his first wife Khadija, his daughter Fatima and his wife Aisha. None of them allowed them to be pushed aside, and they all spoke their minds. I don’t think Islamic feminism is an apparent contradiction. My experience is that women have to fight the male power in Islam with the same dynamics as in all other religions.”

In order to understand feminism in Islam, I recommend American Jewish poet and historian Tamam Kahn’s book, UNTOLD: A History of the Wives of Prophet Muhammad.
