As a nation rolls its eyes, Lindsay Lohan finds another way to embarrass decent Americans.
The troubled star and Hollywood party girl has been appearing before photographers lately wearing the Islamic hajib. The traditional headscarf is worn by women who follow fundamentalist versions of Islam, but it is shunned in Western countries as a symbol of oppressive patriarchy.
Lohan has been better known for her off-screen antics than her sporadic film appearances. She is most famous for her role in the 2004 film Mean Girls, where she squeezed out the last few drops of her innocence to render a memorable performance.
A few years later, when most of her peers were celebrating their 21st birthdays with one too many, Lohan was already checking in to the exclusive Wonderland Center rehab facility in Los Angeles.
Just a couple months after being released from the rehabilitation program, the 21-year-old model and actress was arrested for DUI, possession of cocaine, and misdemeanor hit and run, stemming from a Beverly Hills fender bender.
From that arrest onward, herwould put any hip-hop star to shame. Her life was a series of stints in costly L.A. rehabs, punctuated by arrests for assault, theft, and probation violations.
While Hollywood certainly embraces scandal, bouncing between the jailhouse, the courthouse, and the halfway house makes it difficult for a young actress to juggle her career options.
In 2013, Lohan told Oprah that she was addicted to alcohol, and that her latest rehab session was going to be the one that actually worked (after six failed attempts). Raised as a Catholic, Lohan said:
“I’m a very spiritual person and I’ve become more spiritual as time has gone on. I’m really in touch, whether it’s prayer or meditation…there are so many powers greater than me in the world. I’ve been blessed and lucky enough to have been given a gift to share with other people.”
Sounds relatively positive, until you consider that Lohan’s extreme liberalism precludes any relationship with Christ, and so she must channel her newfound spiritual fervor into other directions.
For most of her ilk, the replacement for the Christian religion they were raised with comes in the form of secular humanism. Leftism, progressivism, marxism, universalism, communism — it’s all the same thing dressed up in different clothes. These ideologies fit the exact profile of pseudo-religions, though their believers recoil in horror at the notion.
Nihilism and atheism have ripped an ugly scar across the heart of America, leaving a barren black wound where fortune once smiled. A people can reject Christianity but something dark usually takes its place. The extreme forms of liberalism we are seeing in this modern age are symptoms of our underlying lack of spiritual direction as a people.
Some conservative scholars describe the scourge of radical leftism as a religion of hopelessness, animated by dark, self-destructive energy that preys on the weak and directionless. When one tallies the body count produced by the misguided manifestos of left-wing intelligentsia, it’s tough to argue that these ideologies are not evil.
For some of the Hollywood celebrities who are most determined in their mission to attack Western values, they’ve developed a harmful obsession with counter-religions.
Kabbalah, Satanism, Paganism, Scientology, these are the dodgy dogmas that these morally confused malcontents tend to gravitate to. We can now add Islam to the list.
It’s not shocking or exotic enough anymore to become a Buddhist, a Taoist, or even a Moonie. The new thing these days is converting to Islam.
In a desperate, embarrassing bid to pander to the invaders who are tearing Europe to pieces, many women from Christian backgrounds have been wearing the hijab, and even going through the extensive procedures to convert to Islam.
Perhaps they are hoping to expand their dating options, since the vast majority of the so-called “refugees” are young, fit, fighting-aged males who are seeking brides and mothers for their future broods of junior jihadis.
If this is the case, it will be up to the men of each country to put a stop to this foolishness.
Lohan’s flirtation with Islam began in 2015, when she was photographed in New York clutching a copy of the Quran (the Islamic Bible) to her breast as if it were a dear possession.
Appearing on Turkish talk show Haber Turk later that year, she claimed the book was actually just a gift from some friends.
“My very close friends, who have been there for me a lot in London, are Saudi and they gave me the Quran and I brought it to New York because I was learning,” said Lohan.
“It opened doors for me to experience spiritually, to find another true meaning. This is who I am.”
She lamented being attacked in the media after the photograph was released.
“They crucified me for it in America. They made me seem like Satan. I was a bad person for holding that Quran,” cried Lohan.
Of course this only fed her persecution complex, and her temptation to bask in the negative attention of being the first Hollywood starlet to convert to Islam.
Early this year she stunned fans when she deleted all of her Instagram history, and replaced them with a simple post for her 5.3 million followers reading “Alaikum salam,” Arabic for “Peace be upon you.”
It’s one thing for a Tinseltown trollop like Lohan to go down the dead-end road of religious recklessness. But when a once-respected stateswoman like Madeleine Albright does it, we should all sit up and take notice. Something disturbing is happening here.
Alrbright, the first female U.S. Secretary of State under Bill Clinton, sent out a tweet this week that shocked the world.
Claiming solidarity with Muslims, presumably over the issue of refugee migration, the former Madame Secretary said:
I was raised Catholic, became Episcopalian & found out later my family was Jewish. I stand ready to register as in.
— Madeleine Albright (@madeleine)
Wait what? Did a former U.S. Secretary of State say that she will register under a foreign religion just to score cheap political points against the fearless champion who took down her beloved Hillary?
It seems unbefitting of the office to side with a tiny extremist minority over the vast majority of American citizens. It also seems insulting to real Muslims, who might object to seeing their religion being used as a political football for the virtue-signalling White Guilt Crowd.
Polls from late last year show that the public supports Trump’s hard-nosed refugee policies by a commanding 2-to-1 margin. The mandate is clearly with the President to limit immigration across the board, if not to impose an outright moratorium.
It’s pretty cringe-inducing watching liberal Western women perform these shameless rituals of self-flagellation. The pledges of solidarity with Muslims are over the top. It should be easy to shame these lunatics back into the Betty Ford Clinic where they belong.
We need only to point out all the barbaric practices against women that you are supporting when you sign on to unconditionally defend Islam. If that doesn’t generate cognitive dissonance when squared against the notion of women’s liberation, nothing will.
Even if one is agnostic or atheist, common sense says that Christianity is better for Western society than Islam is. If we simply judge each religion by the fruits it has produced, on the one side we see an entire body of philosophy, art, jurisprudence, industry, philanthropy, and technology. on the other side we see torture, execution, subjugation, and dysfunction.
It’s a no-brainer why the spread of Islam into the West should be rejected. The only appropriate response to seeing a Christian woman wearing a hijab is to point and laugh!
As for Lindsay Lohan, perhaps her newfound interest in modesty is a good thing for all of us.
