countries banning full face veils

This post quotes three sites: Time, Reuters, and Business Standard.


"Denmark became the latest European country to ban full-face veils on Thursday, effectively outlawing the burqa and niqab worn by some Muslim women.
The law will go into effect August 1, and fines will range from 1,000 Danish kroner ($157) to 10,000 kroner for repeated violations. Once it is in place, police will be able to tell women wearing a veil to remove it or order them to leave public places, according to Reuters.
Denmark joins France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Bulgaria and the German state of Bavaria in imposing its ban. The country has struggled with how to integrate immigrants, especially...from the Middle East in recent years.

Business Standard:

"The law, approved with 75 votes for and 30 against, bans any garment that covers the face, such as the naqab or the burqa, but does not apply to articles of clothing that have a recognized purpose, like winter clothes, costumes or protective gear, Efe reported."


"Zainab Ibn Hssain, who lives in Copenhagen and has been wearing the niqab for the last year, told Reuters: “It’s not nice. It will mean that I won’t be able to go to school, go to work or go out with my family.”
Ibn Hssain, who says she has been yelled at and spat at in public for wearing the niqab, will stay for now in Denmark despite the ban. “If I leave Denmark the politicians win. I feel what they deep down want is for Muslims to leave Denmark,” she said.

I'm glad the law exempts costumes, e.g. for Halloween. If you really want to scare people for Halloween, dress the whole family in Islamic terrorist outfits. You might not get any treats, but it would be funny to see the reactions.

More seriously though, these laws provide another example of how spreading Islam results in a loss of freedom for everyone. In the past, these countries didn't need to restrict what people could wear. Now that the majority see their own culture under threat, they react (too little and too late) to protect what remains of their own culture and their own future.

Especially sad and revealing is the example of the 20yo, who is apparently more devout than her schoolmates and even her own family. She illustrates the tendency of Islam to reassert itself, and a reason why many Muslim immigrants tend not to assimilate. She also shows a total lack of self-awareness: if she dressed in expressly Nazi garb, she would of course encounter social difficulties, but she imagines that she can dress in the garb of a very similar ideology without anyone objecting. Alas many in government and media have encouraged her to believe that she can parade around in Muslim/Nazi regalia and no one will object, as if these doctrines had no consequence, but of course these doctrines do have consequences, and people do object.

It has gotten so old to see all the paraphernalia the different religions use to say "Look at what I believe!" while not having any evidence for their delusional beliefs. They are free to think they are somehow special.
To parapharse Bill Hicks: 'They aren't special'.

One word Trump uses that seems to hit the target, "sad".

Scott Adams praised that too, and went a step further. Instead of calling Islamic terrorists "extremists," we should call them what they are: deluded, gullible losers. On 9/11, 3,000 people were murdered. In addition, 19 gullible losers committed suicide, and became murderers in the same moment. There were no real winners, although the sadistic, dead charlatan Mohamadman might have enjoyed the Islamic spectacle if he were still alive, and some of the sadistic Muslim charlatans who claim to speak for him did probably enjoy the bloodbath they had caused.
