Two Thirds Want Ban:
If you believe the mainstream media, this makes two-thirds of the British people racists and bigots. But in reality, of course, they just want to stand up for some cultural standards, and ask immigrants to conform to the customs and mores of their new home — and that is, of course, exactly what all too many Muslims are determined not to do. “Majority of Brits want burkas banned, fromÂ AFP, via JW
However, the elites know best what’s good for you:
Update from the Bunglawussi blog:
Tory minister says women should have the right to wear veil â€“ Tory press isÂ outraged (strange that this Tory minister doesn’t support the right to be un-veiled…)
See “Caroline Spelman: wearing burka can be ’empowering'” in theDaily Telegraph, “Burkas empower women: Top Tory woman insists freedom to wear Muslim veil is a right” in theÂ Daily Mail and “Uproar after minister says: Let women wear a burkha if they want”, in theÂ Daily Express.
Going against the will of 2/3 of British people. Are 2/3 of Britons un-British, then?
Tolerance for the intolerant is COLLECTIVE SUICIDE:
Green also says that such a ban would run contrary to the conventions of “tolerant and mutually respectful society.” Clearly, he knows nothing of Islamic law and its knack for doing just that. And for that matter, how does concealing one’s face in public foster a mutually respectful society? It is a mark of separation and distrust, and of non-engagement with “the other,” to borrow a well-worn multiculturalist term.
But, of course, one must remember that multicultural “tolerance” is a one-way street on which Western values must yield the right-of-way to galloping Sharia.
