Andrew Bolt: Ban while you can
Ms Legzdina is one of a tiny handful of women – generally estimated at three – to wear the niqab in this Baltic nation, whose population of less than 2 million people includes about 1000 practising Muslims, according to government estimates.
But for Latvia’s Ministry of Justice, that is three niqabs too many. Citing a desire to protect Latvian culture and to address security concerns at a time of rising migration to Europe, the government is working on proposed legislation that would ban face-covering veils from public spaces.
But how often have we seamlessly slid from “too few to worry about” to “too many to offend”?
The whole story of mass immigration from the Muslim Third World to the West is just that.
It is precisely when there are just two or three niqab-wearers that a ban is best introduced, should you believe in such measures. When there are 2000 is when it’s too late.
The Sydney Moonbat Herald runs with it too:
