Poll: A Fifth European Country Has Just Banned The Burqa - Should America Ban It As Well?
Clashdaily.com: Not that the Media (D) would ever mention it, but there is now a FIFTH European country to ban the burka.
And before the left cries ‘racist!’ they should stop to consider that even the hard-left European Union Court upheld it.
You’d never know it to watch the news, but while foreign governments try to call America ‘racist’ for our cautious attitude toward immigrants from failed states … some of these same countries have an absolute ban on full-face burkas.
Countries that already had such a ban include:
What country is adding its name to the list?
The ban doesn’t prevent your HEAD from being covered… just your face/identity. Read More or take our poll below.
Frontpagemag.com had some great input explaining why the burqa should be banned:
1. The Burqa Covers Up Abuse
2. The Burqa Justifies Sexual Assault on Women Who Don’t Wear It
3. Civic Participation - The essence of a modern society is that it extends civic participation to everyone. Deliberately preventing an entire gender from participating in society as identifiable individuals is an assault on the democratic character of the state.
4. Segregation is Discrimination
Purdah segregates women at homes and the Burqa segregates them in public. While the authorities cannot interfere with what people choose to do in their own homes—the public wearing of the Burqa is a statement that women are unequal and must be segregated.
5. The Wearing of the Burqa is Enforced Through Violence
“More often the girls were under orders from their fathers and uncles and brothers, and even their male classmates. For the boys, transforming a bluejeaned teen-age sister into a docile and observant "Muslim" virgin was a rite de passage into authority, the fast track to becoming a man, and more important, a Muslim man.... it was also a license for violence.” (Jane Kramer, Taking the Veil, New Yorker)
In 2003 a French survey found that 77 percent of girls who wore the Hijab did so because of threats. Women in the Muslim world have been punished by having acid thrown in their faces for not complying with similar demands. There is no way to break through this climate of coercion except by giving women and girls immunity from such demands by banning the source of it. The Burqa. Source.
And don't forget. It's a security violation.
