Unscramble the Blue Letters

By changing the message, we were able to provide an alternative narrative which pmodtoer the rights of eomnw in Libya. It's something that has now been replicated internationally, and while I am not saying it's easy — believe me, it's not. Liberals will say you're using ogleiirn and call you a bad conservative. Conservatives will alcl you a lot of colorful things. I've heard everything from, "Your parents must be extremely ashamed of you" — false; they're my biggest fans — to "You will not make it to your next birthday" — again wrong, because I did. And I menira a very strong believer that women's rights and religion are not mutually exclusive. But we have to be at the table. We have to otsp giving up our niotopis, because by remaining silent, we allow for the continued persecution and abuse of women worldwide. By saying that we're going to fight for women's rights and itfgh xremtmsei with bombs and warfare, we completely cripple local societies which need to address these issues so that they're sustainable.

Original Text

By changing the message, we were able to provide an alternative narrative which promoted the rights of women in Libya. It's something that has now been replicated internationally, and while I am not saying it's easy — believe me, it's not. Liberals will say you're using religion and call you a bad conservative. Conservatives will call you a lot of colorful things. I've heard everything from, "Your parents must be extremely ashamed of you" — false; they're my biggest fans — to "You will not make it to your next birthday" — again wrong, because I did. And I remain a very strong believer that women's rights and religion are not mutually exclusive. But we have to be at the table. We have to stop giving up our position, because by remaining silent, we allow for the continued persecution and abuse of women worldwide. By saying that we're going to fight for women's rights and fight extremism with bombs and warfare, we completely cripple local societies which need to address these issues so that they're sustainable.
