Ladies' Night: Another Attack
Early Friday morning, London police discovered a Mercedes wired to explode outside the Tiger Tiger nightclub – where “Sugar ‘N’ Spice,” a popular ladies’ night, was in full swing. Is nothing sacred?
Britain’s new home secretary, Jacqui Smith, called the attempted attack "international terrorism."
The incident provides a bizarre twist to the anti-ladies’ night crusade of Steve Horner, who blames ladies’ nights on feminism – and, he insists, “feminism is Marxism, which creates terrorism through its inherent double standards, creating anger, confusion, resentment, feelings of betrayal and, ultimately, revenge and violence.”
The actual perps behind the car bombs aren’t talking. But they almost created the ultimate last call.
When ladies’ nights are outlawed, only outlaws will have ladies’ nights. -- Patricia Calhoun
