There Was Once a Light of Hope

The reports from Afghanistan indicate that their government has fallen to the Taliban.  This must be one of the reasons why the liberals, Democrats, and the many so-called Republicans voted for Joe Biden in opposition to Donald Trump.  Joe Biden was to be the great unifier bringing enlightenment to the entire world with actions such as the withdrawal of U.S. forces from the region.  He was going to make our enemies like us and end all oppression, racism, and sexism by kindly embracing all of the cultures of the world through his great distinguished statesmanship, which is so unlike the barbaric “neanderthal” Trump.

In the summer of 2012, Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan leaders unanimously agreed to execute a young woman, Malala Yousafzai. Her great crime against humanity: She was/is an activist for female education.   The Taliban claimed that because of Malala Yousafzai’s activities they were “forced” to act.  Malala Yousafzai survived the execution attempt and being in the country of Pakistan, she was able to receive the medical treatment that was needed for her to recover.

The Taliban in Afghanistan are of the same mindset as those who attempted to murder Malala Yousafzai. They enforce a harsh Islamic Sharia law that among many other things, requires women to be completely covered when outside their homes and excludes them from working in public places or attending schools.  “Joe Biden’s” withdrawal from Afghanistan has condemned every woman of that country to a horrendous life under Taliban Sharia tyrannical rule.   The Malala Yousafzais of Afghanistan will not survive their execution attempts.

To all you liberals, Democrats, and the so-called Republicans who voted for Joe Biden: I hope that in your sleep you forever hear the cries of the women of Afghanistan and feel their agony, for you will never again see their faces, know their names, or celebrate their existence.  You have condemned them to a living hell.  It is your actions that have made this happen.  Yes, your vote for Joe Biden has brought this pain and suffering.  Oh well, so what?  Brush it off, because it is not our country.  A year ago, there was a shining light of hope for all the women of Afghanistan.  On Tuesday, November 3, 2020 you extinguished that light, perhaps until the end of time.
