Women, Anti-Fascism & The Struggle Against Tyranny

Whilst the far right in the UK wander about cluelessly referring to themselves as ‘foot soldiers’ with their daft ‘FCK ISIS’ and ‘Taliban Hunting Club’ t-shirts, pretending that they care about the Islamic repression of women, here are some men and women who have actually fought against Islamic extremism as well as other forms of tyranny.

One Response to Women, Anti-Fascism & The Struggle Against Tyranny

  1. Check out the Daily Stormer to see the alt-right / far-right / not-right (in the head) views on women! The CI/WN mob would love to have women chained into chastity belts, forced to ‘dress modestly’, have the vote taken away, obey the orders of men etc. Hmmm. Might have to check to see if the Daily Stormer is an Al Qaeda affiliate!
