‘Too queer to be Muslim, too Muslim to be queer’: LGBT+ woman on fear of discrimination

Hafsa Qureshi says being Muslim and bisexual has seen friends reject her and discrimination at work. She describes why it’s vital to break stereotypes and encourage diverse LGBT+ role models.

Being BAME, LGBT and Muslim makes discrimination feel almost inevitable.

If that pic is really her I think she’s going to have a lot more to worry about than upsetting language.

Normal Human Interaction With Burqa Wearers Impossible – Farage’s Pal Blaiklock

“Firstly, I cannot talk or have a normal human interaction with anyone in a Burqa. They might as well be in the next room or in a tent. I am a friendly person and I am interested in people’s lives. So I always ask delivery people or supermarket workers or whoever — what time do you finish? Are you busy? Is it a hard job? Are you tired? Normal human conversation. Even to porters in Nepal who speak another language, I communicate with via signs or facial language. With someone in a Burqa, I can communicate less with them than I can with my cat,” the activist wrote.

Interesting she is in partnership with Farage, he is soft on Islam, this can’t last.

Yellow Vests: French riot police will now wear body cameras

Following accusations of police violence at Yellow Vest protests, French Interior Minister Christophe Castaner announced that riot police in Paris will be equipped with body cameras to record their use of rubber bullets and other weapons.

The debate about the use of rubber bullets by French police has recently escalated, as more and more citizens have been injured during the weekly Yellow Vest protests. This has served to fuel the anger of the Yellow Vests and put the government on the defensive.

Attempting to diffuse the situation, Castaner told a committee at the National Assembly on Tuesday that police officers using these weapons would be equipped with body cameras from Saturday January 26, during what will be Act 11 of the Yellow Vest campaign

German man sues for discrimination over women’s parking spots

A court in Munich on Wednesday heard the case of Dominik B. Bayer, a motorist who argued he felt discriminated against when he visited Eichstätt and saw parking spaces reserved for women.

The Bavarian town installed the female-only spots in a central public carpark after a woman was attacked and sexually assaulted nearby in 2016. The designated spaces are well-lit and located close to entrances and exits.

What? No Tranny spots?

FATAH: The bankruptcy of ethnic vote banks

Much has been written about the crass ethno-racial baiting employed by Karen Wang, the now-dismissed Liberal Party candidate for the Burnaby South byelection where she was facing NDP leader Jagmeet Singh.

All hell broke loose among the political elite of the country. It was as if Wang had committed an act of racism and had violated the foundations of Canada’s supposed non-racial, non-ethnic election process where ideas and platforms count, not the ethnicity or race of the candidate.

Harrumph, Harrumph: U.S. business leaders express concern about rise of populism and nationalism worldwide while luxing it up at Davos

As the United States enters its 33rd day of a partial government shutdown, business and political leaders participating in the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, are not surprised that President Donald Trump is staying home.

The summit’s agenda is to address a growing number of global crises — and attendees could argue that close to a million federal workers going unpaid is a crisis in itself. But what has so many participants concerned is that Washington’s inability to resolve the stalemate is indicative of America’s declining role as a world leader.

If Liberals Will Lie About the Covington Catholic Kids, Who Won’t They Lie About?

Ever since the 2016 presidential election broke the brain of every lib on earth, we’ve heard a lot about “foreign influence.” The Russians, once dismissed as harmless has-beens by the Democrats — “Governor Romney, the 1980s are calling to ask for their foreign policy back” — are now the boogeymen underneath every bed and around every corner. Whenever the Dems embarrass themselves, you can bet that somebody somewhere is blaming it on “foreign influence.”

And maybe they’re right!

‘Eat your flowers or get deported’: Abuse of Iran’s street vendor kids sparks outrage

A video showing two young boys being mistreated by a municipal worker has caused an uproar in Iran. The image is shocking: the man filming asks the boys to eat the flowers that they were selling in the street – or face deportation.

The 40-second video first appeared on social media in Iran on January 12. It has been spread on the popular messaging app Telegram as well as on Facebook and Twitter. The video shows the younger boy crying as the man behind the camera shouts: “Eat it all, hurry up, all of it! The stem too. Eat it, otherwise I will send you to the camp.” The other boy asks, “Can I not eat the plastic wrap?” The man answers, “No, you have to eat it all”
