"I think she dishonored herself and I think she dishonored her family"

Why is the President using the language of honor killing?


Would he have said the same thing about a white woman?

Would he have said the same thing about any man?


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honor_killing

An honor killing or shame killing is the murder of a member of a family, due to the perpetrators' belief that the victim has brought shame or dishonour upon the family, ...

Human Rights Watch defines "honor killings" as follows:
... The mere perception that a woman has behaved in a way that "dishonors" her family is sufficient to trigger an attack on her life.


I see that Twitter and Reddit and even 4chan have taken note of this, but the MSM seems to have missed it.


(Just as an aside, I find the expletive "motherfucker" to be pointless, weird, hugely vulgar and tinged with misogyny, and, while I have quite a colorful vocabulary I don't generally hesitate to use and come from the 60s when that one was rather popular, I have never used it in all my life.)

2. I'm sorry; I thought this was notorious.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib on Trump:
“People love you and you win. And when your son looks at you and says: ‘Mama, look, you won. Bullies don’t win.’ And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t.’ Because we’re going to go in there and we’re going to impeach the motherfucker.”

Pres. Donald Trump on Tlaib:
"I think she dishonored herself and I think she dishonored her family."


You're welcome!
