Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter

Today we introduce you to Cheryl Chumley, the online opinion editor for The Washington Times, who has written about the novel approach Macy’s department stores are taking in an effort to boost sagging sales. The former retail giant has been closing stores around the United States.

Chumley writes, “Macy’s recently launched a clothing line for Muslim women, including a collection of hijabs, the scarf-like head coverings used as a show of modesty around men.”

That action has bizarrely won the approval of the National Organization for Women (NOW), a hard left feminist group — despite the fact that Islam tramples women’s rights and forcefully represses any notions of gender equality.  Read the facts, substantiated with excerpts from the Quran.

Take a minute to read Chumley’s excellent commentary

    As Western nations feel politically compelled to accept more Muslims, they will lose their individuality. Angela Merkel is overseeing the demise of the German nationality as she has welcomes ever more Muslim “refugees.” Europe as we know it will be a memory as Islamification grabs hold. London has a Muslim Mayor and Mohammad is a leading name for newborn boys in England. France, Spain, the Netherlands, Belgium, even Sweden, are all facing the same fate. We foolishly welcome those whose creed is to overtake us.
    Here at home, Keith Ellison, representing Michigan in congress, is the deputy chief of the DNC, wielding great power. Andre Carson represents Indiana. Both are converts to Islam.

    Some of the fashions were pretty good, not all that Muslim looking. NOW has been and continues to be a destructive force for women and for men. Along with “educators” leading the way for hating America.

      It’s not the “fashions,” it’s the concept.

      • This is capitalism. Macy’s is doing this for one reason: They can make money on it. I live in Brooklyn and we have a lot of women and girls who would wear these fashions, so the Macy’s stores in downtown Brooklyn and the Kings Plaza mall as well as the big store in Herald Square in Manhattan will probably sell these fashions.

        If they don’t, they’ll pull the line.

        My family has been in the schmatta business for five generations, and we’ve been manufacturing and retailing everything from furs (how my immigrant great-grandfather became a millionaire) to blue jeans.

        It’s all about making money. If you don’t like capitalism, move to North Korea or Cuba.

    Remember when the faithful adherents of “Religion of Peace” set Paris and London on fire, destroying property and torching thousands of cars? The police stopped patrolling their crime filled areas, but they were still collecting numerous social benefits and enjoyed free housing as they terrorized the communities they claimed they so wanted to be a part of? They are all about jihad, and the sooner we wake up to that fact, the better. Muslims have far more children than Europeans or Americans. They will outnumber us.

    British government actively promoting the wearing of hijabs.
    Even held events to encourage non-muslim women to try them on.

    Britain is done, and it’s their own fault.

    Two years ago at Christmas time, the heir to the throne, Prince Charles, hijacked the annual Christmas radio address that is reserved for Christian ministers. Instead, Charles droned on about the beauty of Islam.

    Now, Turkey’s Erdogan is bragging about his success with his plan to bring back the Ottoman Empire. The muslims have tried, throughout the ages, to enslave Europe.

    If you’ve never heard of the Battle of Lepanto in the year 1571, you might want to read about it. It was a defining moment in history that could have easily been the end of a Christian Europe.

    Some say that there was divine intervention, as Pope Pius V had ordered that all Catholic churches be open, day and night, for the praying of the Rosary.

    Meanwhile,
    Five law enforcement officers have been killed in the past 6 days.

    The sheriff’s deputy in Colorado Springs was shot and killed on the 11th anniversary of the day that he became a police officer.
    He was killed by a previously deported illegal.

    Macy’s deserves every store closing. When Donald Trump first announced he was running for president, Macy’s dropped his necktie line out of protest. They suffered a big backlash. Between people buying online and Macy’s getting ‘political,’ their sales have been dropping. So it’s not surprising they’re delving into the marketing of Muslim wear for women. They hate freedom-loving Trump and embrace the religion of peace, which isn’t very peaceful for women across the Muslim world. Yet they get behind a hijab – a symbol of female oppression. Feminism and Islam do not mix. NOW is just a progressive political party pushing their far left agenda.

    • Richard Grayson says:

      I won’t go to Macy’s any more, more, more
      There’s a big fat policeman at the door, door, door
      He’ll squeeze you like a lemon
      A kalatchagazolenemon
      Oh, I won’t go to Macy’s any more, more, more.
      — Traditional NYC kids’ rhyme with alternate middle lines:
      He’ll pull you by the collar
      And make you pay a dollar

      All department stores, not just Macy’s, are dying. It’s capitalism, not politics. Sears, JC Penney, Dillard’s, all in the same sinking boat. Go upscale (Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus) or downscale (where people on this blog shop), but there’s no need for department stores anymore, more, more.

    Here’s an article on McCain – with absolutely no new information. Van Jones is an avowed Communist. And Meghan goes on his CNN show.
