Wokeness is a disease. A disease of the mind and of the soul. It crushes your ability to think critically, and causes one to easily fall victim to the most obvious of traps.
Such is the case after the fall of Afghanistan to the radical Islamic group, the Taliban.
The Taliban is responsible for the most harrowing crimes against women and girls in Afghanistan, subjecting them to brutal violent acts and unimaginable persecution.
But now the Left seems to be warming up to the radical Islamists. Here’s why…
The Taliban on Tuesday declared a general “amnesty” for all in Afghanistan and are urging women to join the government following the takeover of the country, an official with the group said.
The announcement was made by Enamullah Samangani, a member of the Islamic Emirate’s cultural commission on Afghan state television, which the Taliban now controls. His statement follows the rapid collapse of the former Afghan government over the weekend, which came shortly as President Ashraf Ghani fled the country on Sunday.

“The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan doesn’t want the women to be the victims anymore. The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is ready to provide women with environment to work and study, and the presence of women in different (government) structures according to Islamic law and in accordance with our cultural values,” adding that “all sides should join” the government.
Amid the Taliban takeover, women in Afghanistan have raised concerns about their future and safety under the Taliban government, which stripped them of many basic rights when it last governed the country.
While there are presently no major reports of abuses of conflict in the capital of Kabul as the Taliban now control the surrounding area, many residents have remained at home in fear after the Taliban insurgency resulted in prison breaks and looted armories. Taliban officials reportedly began taking weapons from civilians on Monday.
Still, the Biden administration has voiced their determination to keep fighting for the civil rights of Afghani women and girls, but the Taliban seems to have already outmaneuvered the dementia-riddled U.S. president.
