It should come as no surprise that those who voice the loudest opinions about safety often do not have to live with the consequences of their ideologies.
How many times have we heard Michael Bloomberg and President Obama crusade to burden lawful gun owners while doing so surrounded by an armed security detail?
How many times have we seen socialist celebrities assert that higher taxes are warranted while they, themselves, need not worry about a million here or there?
Those who have asserted that accepting tens-of-thousands of Syrian refugees is a moral imperative are often the same ones living in Beverly Hills or lofty suburbs- far out-of-reach of the areas that will serve as the areas for relocation of the Muslim refugees whose backgrounds are completely unknowable.
One such social justice warrior is actress Emma Watson, the oh-so-enlightened far-left feminist actress famous for her role in the Harry Potter franchise.
Watson has voiced her support for refugees to be relocated in Europe despite the fact that rapes and murders committed by refugees have become rampant in areas where such refugees are relocated.
Though Ms. Watson enjoys the comfort of bodyguards and the kind of serenity and security which comes with financial success, she evidently sees no issue with endangering the lives and safety of others. To showcase her hypocrisy, a petition on Change.org asks that Watson spend a week in a refugee camp in Calais, France, without her bodyguards.
The idea, of course, is to challenge the posterchild for new-age feminism to experience what European women without a security detail have to go through as Europe is flooded by Muslim refugees who do not share the enlightened modern view of feminism and equality of today’s modern age.
The petition reads:
“In order to show how safe current migration is to Europe, particularly regarding the cause of feminism… Emma Watson should spend a week’s holiday in a Calais migrant camp, without guards of course, to show how safe, and how pro feminism these migrants are.”
The petition has gained 12,000 signatures and Watson has yet responded to the petition.
The truth is that the same leftist crowd who so vigorously clamor for feminist issues are often the same ones insisting that it is a moral duty to accept into Western society the backwards and dangerous misogyny and violence which afflicts the Muslim world.
The coddled celebrity might fancy herself a representative of feminist ideology, but until she is willing to subject herself to the same peril for which she advocates for all women of Europe, she is merely talking the talk.
