Some people believe that all cultures are equal. However, here at TwilightofLiberty.com, we firmly believe that cultures that slice their daughters’ genitals to shreds with a crude knife or razor without anesthetic are FUNDAMENTALLY INFERIOR to cultures that do not. There is no equivalence and people that practice FGM have no place in civilized society.
In a sane world, such a statement would not be controversial and civilized society’s would condemn such useless violence with one voice. That, of course, is not the world we live in. And so in the state of Maine, legislators there couldn’t bring themselves to pass the most simplest of laws to simply ban the practice and implement appropriately horrible and draconian punishments for those who engage in the practice. Instead, the spineless pussies of the Maine legislature voted to create an “education and outreach program” to teach backwards, 3rd world immigrants that “Golly, I’m sure sorry, but here in Maine we sort of look down on hacking young girls private parts to bits.” And frankly, why can’t all these immigrants leave their backwards, stupid cultures where they left them? They obviously left their homes and came hear for a reason – why bring those reasons with them?
Note to women: your lefty protectors prefer that men pretending to be you invade your locker and restrooms, and also are unable to unequivocally state that chopping your bits up is categorically wrong. Just my opinion, but you might want to look for new defenders.
From the Portland Press Herald:
House lawmakers voted narrowly on Tuesday to create an education and outreach program aimed at stopping “female genital mutilation” in immigrant communities but stopped short of giving prosecutors additional tools against the practice.
After a lengthy and emotional debate, the House voted 76-71 against creating a new crime of “female genital mutilation” – on top of existing federal and state prohibitions – for a procedure estimated by the United Nations to have been performed on at least 200 million girls and women in 30 countries. Instead, House Democrats supported a version that directs the Maine Department of Health and Human Services to establish outreach and education programs featuring “culturally specific services for communities in the state wherein which female genital mutilation of minors might be practiced.”
The debate over the bill, L.D. 745, was not whether the practice happens worldwide but rather whether it is occurring in Maine, particularly inside the state’s growing communities of African immigrants.
“I do not believe that it is happening in the state of Maine. I truly do not believe that,” said Rep. Lois Galgay Reckitt, D-South Portland. “And I believe if it was happening, it would be prosecuted vigorously by the federal (laws) or by the abuse statutes in this state.”
But Rep. Heather Sirocki, R-Scarborough, said that since introducing the bill she has heard from numerous people in Maine – including some in the medical field – with personal stories about seeing female genital mutilation.
You should be completely and utterly ashamed of yourselves, Maine legislators.
