Muslim Derangement Syndrome, Barbies in Burqas Edition
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Will Barbies in burqas be next?

That’s the question every parent, especially mothers, should be asking now that Mattel has rolled out a new Barbie for little girls to look up to – one wearing a hijab, the headscarf worn by millions of oppressed Muslim women worldwide.

Why would an American doll maker promote a widely known symbol of female oppression, you wonder? You can thank political correctness.

In the spirit of promoting diversity, the toy manufacturer decided to honor fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad – the first American Olympian to compete wearing a hijab, at the Rio de Janeiro Games last year.

Memo to Mattel: No matter what PC “Kool-Aid” you’re drinking these days, promoting oppression and the subjugation of girls and women is never OK.

In fact, it’s flat-out dangerous.
