The Hijabs of Our Banana Republic
When a company runs into trouble, it tries to go forward or backward. And when Banana Republic faced a 3% decline in sales, it decided to go all the way back to the 7th century. Hoping to tap into the lucrative market of concealing bruises and strangulation marks, Banana Republic rolled out a line of hijabs for the discerning woman who knows better than to leave home without the permission of a male guardian.
Modern lefties iconize hijabs without having the
faintest idea of what they mean or what they're for. All they know is that to
properly display diversity, you need to add a woman in a hijab between the gay
guy, the Black Lives Matter guy, and the militant #resistance member ready to
storm Starbucks; even though a hijab is as much a symbol of human liberation as
a case of female genital mutilation.
