What Is 'White Sharia'? Alt-Right Blogger Doesn't Want Women To Vote, Drive Or Work

Newsweek is running a fine article [] on the antics of the white supremacists.

White supremacists want to take over everything — even the thing they hate the most: Islam's Sharia Law.

White Sharia—as coined by a former Marine blogger—is still anti-Muslim, but seizes on orthodox Islam's ideal of obedient women and turns it into its own movement, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups.

It seems that the alt-White is making common cause with the Taliganvelicals and the "Roy Moore" school of thought, and trying to put the womens in their place. I, for one, predict that this will not end well.

“They don’t like Muslims, but they don’t have a problem with what are regressive treatment of women,” Heidi Beirich, the director of Southern Poverty Law Center’s Intelligence Project, told Newsweek. “They have come to the position that Sharia law is turning women into baby factories and turning them back into the home, and they’re fine with that.”

And it also seems that the whole thing may be a reactionary reaction to the recent accusations of sexual harrassment.

“The reason you’re seeing [white Sharia] a lot more recently is this social movement against sexual harassment,” Beirich said. “These are people who don’t believe the concept of sexual harassment exists.”

. . .

The blog post was written in June. The #MeToo movement didn't start until last month, when Harvey Weinstein was accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women. Still, Beirich says, the movement has propelled White Sharia beyond an online meme and into something more serious.

With no women, how will the white supremacists manage to further their racial superiority?
