Fox analyst rips Hollywood, liberals to shreds over gutless hypocrisy, failure to support Muslim women

A Fox News senior national security analyst castigated Hollywood and the left for its abject  failure to protest the brutal treatment of women in the Islamic world, while boycotting the Beverly Hills Hotel for its owner’s introduction of Sharia Law in his home country.

In an interview on Fox and Friends with Brian Kilmeade Monday, retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters said it was nice that movie stars and moguls took issue with the Sultan of Brunei’s edict in the South Asian country, but he scolded them for ignoring much more serious long-term human rights abuses .

“The American Left and the feminists have spent more energy defending terrorist thugs at Gitmo (Guantanamo Naval Base) than they have spent over the years defending the rights of hundreds of millions of brutally oppressed women throughout the Islamic world,” he said.

The former military intelligence officer and Soviet affairs expert noted that for years, Hollywood stars have been staying at the Fairmount Hotel and the Four Seasons, which are owned by Qataris and Saudis, without ever protesting. “How are women’s rights doing there?” he asked rhetorically.

Just warming up, Peters said, “I’m not a Republican, I am an Independent. But this notion that the left has created, this lie about a Republican ‘War on Women’ while they are ignoring…Boco Haram, women being punished for being raped, genital mutilation, stoning to death, the daily oppression and slavery, the lack of freedom…the left is contorting itself not to say that Boco Haram is an Islamic organization.”

He then delivered his coup de grace. “If you look honestly at the world, only in the Islamic world, only in the Islamic world, are women brutally oppressed and do they suffer the deprivation of rights, and the American left says nothing!”
