Michelle Obama Doesn’t Do Head Coverings

This past week, the Obamas visited Saudi Arabia.  During the visit, Michelle Obama didn’t wear a head scarf.  In the receiving line, the Saudi Arabian men refused to shake her hand.  Some even refused to look at her.

Where is the liberal outrage?  Why aren’t they burning bras and screaming from the rooftops about the terrible, backward misogynist way in which she was treated?

Huh?  Where is it?  All I heard about it was “cricket, cricket.”  Or, some people actually criticized her for not wearing the scarf.

Can you believe that?

The reason this is making me nuts is the inconsistency, again, of liberals.

I applaud her for not wearing the head scarf.  I have never understood why strong, successful, female American journalists degrade themselves by wearing the scarf.  Aren’t they elite, liberal feminists?

It is so easy, it is so clear.  Why do liberals get it wrong AGAIN?

All American women from elite liberal feminists to non-elite conservative rednecks should stand up and applaud our First Lady not subjecting herself to the Sharia-law dictated scarf.

All American women should also be mortified at the way that Michelle was treated.  Again, where is the liberal outrage?  Why aren’t they decrying this treatment?  If Mike Huckabee treated Michelle Obama that way, you would never hear the end of it.

I just don’t get it, do you?

Why don’t liberals make any sense at all?
