On the niqab issue, who is the real bully? Mulcair or Harper?

NDP Leader Tom Mulcair says that Stephen Harper is trying to bully Muslim women and tell them what to wear.

Brian Lilley of TheRebel.media explains who is really trying to force women to wear the niqab and it ain’t Stephen Harper.

So what is Mulcair’s game? Trying to silence Conservatives from speaking.

    The niqab is a mask.

    Every mask implies a threat…that goes with a surgical mask, a bandit’s mask, a KKK mask or the niqab. The threat implied is that a woman who refuses the niqab will be harmed! In the West, many women have been murdered by their families because they refused to wear the veil. By saying that women wear the mask to avoid rape, Koran 33.59 implies that unveiled women may be raped by Muslim males, since they are not ‘identified’ as Muslim.

    For those reasons, we should not allow the Islamic mask AT ALL in Canada under any circumstance because it is a grave risk to women who refuse it!

    The niqab is first introduced as 1) an option, then it becomes 2) a preferred option, 3) normal, 4) regulated, 5) legislated, 6) enforced, and finally it becomes 7) mandatory & a criminal matter. At what stage, should we say ‘no’?

    Since the niqab is such a danger to women who refuse to wear one, it should be banned in the same way as other dangerous objects are banned.

    Women who are accused of becoming ‘too Westernized’ will then be safe from intimidation. How many honour killings must there be before common sense comes to the rescue?”

      I think it is worse than a mask. A mask is something someone chooses to wear in order to conceal their identity. A niqab is something women wear out of shame, or because they are forced to, or both.

    • Well said.

  • Denis George Miller

    no burkas and no niqab in Canada. they should be illegal and considered a mask for a criminal act.

    Mulcair is a foreign piece of **** that should go home to France and leave Canada to Canadians.

  • roccolore

    Muslims and liberals are the bullies.

    It is a sign of submission and is wrong.

    Took a cab into work this morning (Thursday Morning March 19), and I had to suffer through the ride listening to herr-CBC Radio. The mini-jackboot host for the show was discussing Harper’s opposition to he niqab. The piece started with a CBC reporter reading off a string of anti-Harper statements, from Twitter, on this. Following that, the herr-host had on three young Muslim women, two of which wore the niqab, and the third who decided to quit wearing it. The two niqabers sang the praises of the niqab; the third also like it, but decided to quit wearing it given “Islamophobia” she supposedly got, from non-Muslims in the street.

    One can see how the media cartel operate, from this vignette. The cartel, in attacking Harper, wants to glamourize the niqab, purposely making it palatable to the eyes of the public. In the 1930s, far-right newspapers probably made the KKK white hood palatable to the public. THese is where our media cartel is today.

      Just a slight correction to your post. The KKK was instigated and staffed by the democrats, not far right or right.

        Point well taken! I stand corrected!
        My father’s side are descendants of “the Old South” (the Murrells originated in North Carolina), so I have an interest on Southern history of all kinds. One interesting fellow from the Old South was Nathaniel Bedford Forrest — a rather unique Civil War general in that he nearly won all the battles he was in, where he directed the battles, even up to the last days of the war. If one reads his biography, he was one tough, mean fighter.
        At any rate, he was the first leader of the Ku Klux Klan, in the years directly immediately following Reconstruction where he claimed he was a “titular” leader only. Needless to say, Republicans back then were VERY pro-integration, anti-Ku Klux Klan. The Democrats, not so much

    Harper only says what he can get away with…I think he feels as most intelligent Canadians… All the years I have lived..,Muslims in Canada just integrated, and you never saw hijabs.. They didn’t wear them…
    Only in the last two decades…with all the immigration of extremist religious islamics and the push to bring in imams and mega funding to all these extremist groups that we now have such hideous problems
    Just pray we don’t get the drama teacher and the destructive liberals in the next election…that would signal the end for us
