On ‘Muslim Women’s Day’ reality bending libs embarrassingly make hijab the new ‘feminist’ symbol

Only in liberal America can a hijab, a traditional head covering depicting submission to male authority, be cast as a symbol of resistance and feminism.

…courtesy of President Donald Trump, of course.

Talk about a spin zone, USA Today arrived at that far-reaching conclusion in a recent piece commemorating #MuslimWomensDay, oddly passing on the opportunity to sell female mutilation in a similar light.

“I do believe hijab support feminism,” Sameeha Ahmad said outside a Muslim prayer center at the University of Maryland. “The way you look at it from a religious perspective, it empowers you by strengthening your relationship with God. It’s a step you are taking to further yourself within your own religion.”

The online piece featured a video of several young Muslim girls explaining why they wear a hijab:

“Scores” of non-Muslims have joined in on the hijab wearing craze to show solidarity with Muslims and defy Trump,  USA Today reported.

The reaction on social media included plenty of snark, but one user nailed it with this message to USA Today: “This is so laughable you should be embarrassed.”
