Happy International Women’s Day, Dear Comrades!

March 8, 2011



TODAY is the centenary of that beautiful, soul-stirring Marxist holiday, International Women’s Day. To mark the occasion, this video was made by a British equality campaign. The actor Daniel Craig dresses up as a woman while playing James Bond, making it a day to celebrate not just feminism but homosexuality too.

The sheer hatefulness of the script will take your breath away. It is narrated by the actress Judi Dench in a voice dripping with contempt and rage over the worldwide maltreatment of women as she recites unverifiable figures such as 60 million for the number of girls sexually assaulted on their way to school every year. Women do two-thirds the amount of work around the world and earn ten percent of the income, she says. Her poisonous little speech is pure, unadulterated evil.

The video was made by EQUALS, “a partnership of leading charities brought together by Annie Lennox to celebrate the centenary of International Women’s Day.” Interestingly, in its glowing description of International Women’s Day, the group fails to mention the day’s Soviet origins. The great thing about Soviet equality was that women were sent to Siberia too.

Watching the video to the end, a had to supress a little chuckle when the agitprop ends with “Join the big inequality debate.” 

Oh, yes, it’s a “debate”… but express all skeptical or alternative views at your peril.

I wouldn’t want to run into any of these equality people in a back alley.
