Feminism claims another poor girl’s life.

baloch-700

Feminism has been a mixed bag for economically privileged women, but it has been a straight up disaster for poor women.   However, feminism is simply a tool that has been used by a global elite to line their own pockets via usurious “fiat dollars” that banks are allowed to create out of thin air and lend out to us.  How to get us to borrow, spend, borrow, borrow, and spend some more?  Destroy marriage and childbearing, and women will seek to fill the hole that remains with stuff, career, travel, and a vapid Sex-in-the-City lifestyle.

The destruction of traditional culture goes hand-in-hand with the destruction of the family unit.  The progressive globalists pulling feminism’s strings don’t really give a shit about women.  If they did, they wouldn’t have been egging this poor stupid Pakistani girl on, knowing what her eventual fate would be:

What is the real story here? CNN wants to spin an epic tale of an average woman standing up to patriarchal oppressors against all odds. CNN wants to turn her into a martyr and a heroine. But she is neither of those things, and CNN’s tale is false on its face.

The real story is a sordid one. It is a story of a number of news organizations and NGOs following Anglo-Saxon ideologies of feminism and progressivism, funded and directed from abroad, working on a long-term project to undercut traditional Pakistani society and remake it in the images of Harvard and Oxford Utopia. It is a story of a lower-class Pakistani woman without a husband who got sucked into the pointless spiral of selfies, clicks, and likes that is Western social media, and was then selected and fueled down that path by those same news organizations and NGOs in order to further their political goals.

When she met her inevitable fate in Muslim Punjab, they eulogized her and blamed the patriarchy. And yet, before Qandeel Baloch was having phone calls with journalists at major left-of-center newspapers, she was not likely fearing for her life, nor twerking half-naked for millions to watch on YouTube. Qandeel Baloch was not empowered, she was a political pawn for organizations that did not care whether she lived or died.

Notice that none of the female journalists encouraging her to pose half-nude on the internet were themselves doing anything so pointlessly stupid.  They were happy to whisper lies about empowerment in the girl’s ear, telling her she was strong and independent when in reality she was just reveling in the attention, as most girls would.  Did they care that she would be almost certainly be killed?  Apparently not.  Her death has been ever so useful for their narrative and the news organizations’ site traffic though.  She served her purpose for them, poor stupid girl, and she won’t be the last.

Feminism is the lie that progressive globalists feed gullible girls to celebrate their own debasement and destruction.

  1. I am a confused bear. Given that this all went down in Pakistan, she had to be suicidal. If I had to argue her out of this behavior, I would ask how teasing men puts money in her wallet. I don’t think that it put money in her wallet.

    • I have to add that “patriarchy” is feminist code for social restrictions on sexuality put in place to allow society to function. That’s all out the window now. Women are making hypersexual displays to attract top men who they all want while ignoring thier marketplace peers. It’s not going to work and it will be a terrible mess when women realize there aren’t enough top men to go around. Those that have realized this and persist are abasing themselves by sharing.
      It can’t go on like this.

  2. I’m sorry, Sunshine, but I disagree with you on this matter.

    Part of our problem in society today is a refusal to lay responsibility where it belongs. Blaming this young woman’s death on “Feminism” or any other “ism”/ideology/pick-a-societal-ill serves only to excuse the one person who is responsible – the person who, of his own free will, CHOSE to murder his sister.

    I’ll admit to a real bee in my bonnet about this.

    • Maeve,
      In the eyes of the law, your argument is sound. He will do his time and the family will welcome him back and praise him for his sacrifice.

    • No one said that brother was not responsible for his actions. But there is more than enough blame to go around here. She lived in a culture where this was likely to happen to her if she behaved in a culturally dishonorable way. The people who were egging her on knew this but encouraged her anyway. And for what? She wasn’t curing cancer and being held down by the patriarchy, she was attention whoring half nude and being told this was some kind of great accomplishment. The people involved knew what the likely outcome would be -honor killings are not rare in Pakistan – but they encouraged her to do so anyway. Her death is a real boon for them, though.

      Maeve, this is kind of analogous to the situation where feminists don’t want girls to be told not to get blindingly drunk at public parties because it increases their likelihood of being sexually assaulted. Telling girls that this behavior is foolish and dangerous is construed as “blaming the victim”. But it isn’t blaming the victim, it’s good common sense for self-protection.

      And it’s the same in the situation. Just like a rapist is still responsible for his actions, so a murderer is still responsible for *his* own actions, but that doesn’t mean that instead of encouraging her to act out in a dangerous way, these wealthy, well-educated, Western-funded journalists shouldn’t have told her how risky and pointlessly dangerous her behavior was.

    • These pro-feminist foreigners egged this girl on knowing what the consequences could be and knowing that they wouldn’t bear them.
      That’s pretty cold.

  3. Yes, I agree with you, Sunshine. Feminists really don’t care about women at all, they care about promoting ideology, and in a way they actually need to create collateral damage so as to validate what they are selling. We do need to totally point fingers at Pakistan, at the brother, at the culture that places so little value on women’s lives, but we can spare some blame for those who help orchestrate these tragedies, too. They care far more about their politics than actual women’s lives.

  5. About a year ago, on one of these threads, someone proposed that marrying a foreign Muslim wife might be a good idea. She gets an American beta husband who won’t beat her at the drop of a hat and the man ends up with a wife dedicated to maintaining the relationship. Well, that notion can go straight into the round file.

  6. I am reminded of the summers when I, with others from my church, went into Compton (South Central LA) to reach out to people there. That said, we did so on Saturday morning, when the vast majority of the gangbangers were sleeping off the previous night’s escapades, tragically some of them sleeping it off permanently. We therefore got to know many of the poor, including a number of former gangbangers (one with a scar across his scalp from ear to ear), without suffering “acute lead or steel poisoning.”

    Too many people, including our President, seem to think that force of will and moral or literal exhibitionism will change the world into our image, and the past 8 years, and this tragedy, show us that we’ve got to use our heads if we’re going to change the world.

  7. A good point from Julian’s post:

    One does not have to support the mores of some of these extremely socially conservative nations to recognise that folly is still folly. And that following the social customs of one’s own country is usually a good idea. In some parts of the world, the patriarchy still exists and has real teeth.

    • @Julian’s post: ” … following the social customs of one’s own country is usually a good idea … ”

      Only if one is not trying to be an agent for change. See the French revolution, or the American colonists’ revolution against their own country. Or:

      “The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” George Bernard Shaw

      I guess the key is figuring out which ideas are actually worth dying for. I’m not so sure Qandeel Baloch understood this. Was she aware of the concept of honor killings? Was she warned by her family to stop what she was doing? This presents an interesting case study for the concept of agency, whether male or female.

      I think this situation highlights the fact that agency is more a function of awareness and understanding (knowledge) than chronological age. And it highlights the importance of parents “controlling” the behavior of their children until the children have developed a functional ability to think (and thereby exhibit true agency). If we refuse to teach our daughters how to think, how to have agency, who ultimately is responsible for the consequences that befall our daughters?

  8. The American Revolutionaries thought that freedom was worth dying for. Maybe Qandeel Baloch believed that her freedom is worth dying for. She grew up in Pakistan, I am pretty sure she knew what the consequences of her actions could be. She was brave enough to defy it. Maybe she was an attention whore, but she has every right to be an attention whore. If you did not like her videos or pictures just look away. Pretty simple.

    The Pakistani government is refusing to allow the family to forgive Ms. Baloch’s brother for her murder. Maybe the government will change the law so that barbarians that murder their sisters or daughters cannot be forgiven and that they will go to jail. Maybe women that want to marry the man of their choice, have a boyfriend or just live their lives the way they want to will not have to live in fear of their families.

    • For a while, I hung out at a blog that has since gone defunct. Before the end, we were trolled constantly by an American raised East Indian woman. She had chosen to defy her parents about matters of sex and marriage.In doing so, she lost their support. She was over thirty, unlikely to ever marry, and more than a little empty because of her choices.

      • It i a good thing that I don’t have to sit on a Pakistani jury. Pakistanis have to feel the same way. I don’t know if she could have found a man to take her in. I think that the big takeaway here is for daughters to cooperate with their parents.
        As for the one raised in America, that result was unlikely. She got out of the house on her own.

  9. I saw this on youtube and thought to link. It’s pure feminist party line and that worries me.

    The reason that I am worried is that Pakistan may go the way of India. There feminism has put the bott to the neck of all men to a much greater extent than here. A false allegation can jail a husband’s whole family. I think that the lid will blow off and it won’t pretty but it will be soon.
