You can never be too woke. Even without reparative therapy, the soccer superstar “woke up” to the realization that being lesbian living with a woman was not quite as woke as embracing the frizzy haired Kaep’d crusader and becoming Mz. K-R. (Kaepernick-Rapinoe has too many syllables for the marketing opportunities that are sure to follow such a union). “Look what he was able to do, he backed Nike off a product that would have sold like the proverbial hotcakes, even without the Aunt Jemima syrup. I might wear the swoosh, but he bucked the swoosh.” Sue Bird, who initially defended the stand, or more accurately, the kneel, of her lover in cursing the President, the uniform and the flag, is reported be fatalistic about the matter. “I guess you can never be too woke, though getting married doesn’t mean she isn’t still a lesbian. I can’t hold it against her, since being a lesbian, and marrying a semi-black Trump-baiting flag-hating Afro-rocking protester is kind of a woke trifecta.” So was cursing the President, the uniform and the flag.
Mr. K-R is reportedly considering dying his hair pink in solidarity with his bride, since her hair is not likely to yield much of an Afro, and wearing an Afro wig isn’t authentic. There’s considerable speculation as to the particulars of their sex life. Kaep’s previous girlfriend, Nessa Diab, is privately saying to her friends, “no great loss here, I was getting ready to move on anyway.” There’s more than a little speculation that their breakup was due to a disagreement about slavery. She lived in Saudi Arabia after her dad’s job transferred them there. Since returning to the United States, Diab has repeatedly slammed “social injustices” against Muslims. “Islamaphobia is at an all time high in this country,” she opines. She’s also made it a point to educate her ex(?)-boyfriend about Islam. He elaborated, “She is Muslim. Her family is Muslim, I have great respect for them.” I wonder how her Muslim family feels about her career choices. Diab has become a familiar face on MTV. Over the years, she has hosted a slew of reality shows, including Teen Mom Aftershow, Girl Code Live, and The Real World After Show. Hmm, no doubt Muhammad would be proud.
The satirical portion of my post will now yield to some bitter truth. Colin being supposedly so anti-slavery, it’s a wonder how he reconciled that with Nessa’s being proud of her Saudi experience and somehow failing to notice all the slavery and oppression there. Christiane Saliba writes “I am Syrian, but I was born and raised in Dubai where my parents worked. Slavery still exists today in the Gulf states and in Saudi Arabia. The foreign laborers holding menial tasks live in terrible conditions, and they are trapped into permanent debt, exposed to hazardous working conditions and denied the right to unionize. Due to the lack of financial opportunities in their native countries, the migrant workers are forced to work in the Gulf or Saudi Arabia to provide for their families. Although most of them think they will have a better standard of living, but they find a very different and miserable reality. The working conditions are inhuman; the laborers are expected to work for hours in temperatures that reach up to 122 degrees Fahrenheit. It was reported that between 2010 and 2012, seven hundred Indian workers died in Qatar due to these conditions. The same conditions exist in Saudi Arabia. But they are not limited simply to horrible working and living conditions. Female household servants in Saudi Arabia, from places like the Philippines, Sri Lanka, India, Indonesia, Ethiopia are sexually abused and raped by their employers.“
Go ahead Colin and Nessa and Megan, decry the United States of America, but praise Saudi Arabia and Islam, which continue to foster slavery today in conditions as inhumane as anything that happened in the antebellum south. No surprise there, the history of Islam, and slavery, are inseparable. That’s why CAIR is so desperate to shut out the truth, even told by scholars like Raymond Ibrahim.
