Niqab ban not a big deal #elxn42

It’s time to put the niqab issue into perspective. The misplaced rhetoric is getting out of hand.

Late last week Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi said on a radio program: “This is unbelievably dangerous stuff.”

Only he wasn’t referring to the wearing of the niqab itself – a full face veil certain Muslim women choose to wear.

No, instead he was referring to the Conservative government’s continuing court saga to defend its 2011 ban on wearing new citizens wearing face coverings while delivering the citizenship oath.

    Nenshi— We already know that it is ‘unbelievably dangerous stuff’ – that is Why we can’t afford to lose.

  • Frances

    Nenshi is also busy defending the latest “public art” – the Forest Lawn lift station, which pumps “wastewater” in low areas to high areas and features an LED-lit map of the underground pipes which show the flow of said water en route to the Bonnybrook Wastewater Treatment Plant. Do google it. Apparently the previous lift station was further down the slope and less obvious, while this little puppy’s location has mucked up the views of a fair few houses.

    With Muslims like Nenshi, it’s always Islam first. Canada second.

    • Shebel

      It does appear to be so.

          Not everyone aspires to being a whore.

    • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

      And he’s an Ismaili ‘Muslim’ at that.

      The Ismailis are a sub-sect of the Shias, which makes them twice removed from the real Muslims, Sunnis.

      Just saying/Worth mentioning….

      • John

        Unlike the different sects of Christianity, there are virtually no theolgocal differences between Sunnis and Shias and all the rest.
        So when push comes to shove, they’ll all react in much the same way.

      • BillyHW

        Yeah, the other day Blaze posted a story about an Ismaili killing his own daughter for his demon-God Allah. They are all the same. A muslim is a muslim is a muslim and Nenshi is one of them. Fuck you Calgary for voting him in.

  • Shebel

    For me—it does not matter how long it takes or how much money costs— No masks allowed at the Citizenship ceremony.
    I guess that we are probably paying for that Niqabi bitch’s lawyers also?
    Stick with your Muslim hoards Nenshi—- we are also paying for you.

  • Shebel

    Look at the above pic . Honest to Christ. . These people scare the begeezus out of me.
    For me — they look like the KKK must have looked to a Black man.

    And for some crazy, fucking reason— I am supposed to greet them them with ” Lovely Day Ladies and if I may be so bold–You all look as beautiful as ever”.
    This is political correct bullshit gone Wild.

    If this bevy of ‘shrouded beauties ‘ ever came up to my door for whatever reason—do you really think that I would open it ? If ,I did–then I would be armed .

      Would it be OK to take the oath in a pointed white hood ?

      Hell no.
      You would be saying that you don’t respect basic Canadian rights.
      But if you are a muzzie, you get a pass.

      • Shebel

        We must not upset the Prophet Muhammad, PBUH , because he goes crazy and kills people if you do not say that he is the most Peaceful.
        So everyone says that he is Peaceful -even when he commands his Faithful to kill us.

      • Kathy Prendergast

        The pointed white hood, mask, and robe is actually worn by men in some Roman Catholic procession ritual in parts of Spain, not sure which one…I think it’s just a medieval holdover, nothing to do with racism whatsoever, but maybe the original KKK got the idea from it because they knew in the rural South it would look so alien and intimidating.

    My favourite is the one second from the left in the back row.
    She is obviously the cutest one and I really like her dimples.

      ….

      • Kathy Prendergast

        I’m sure I’ve seen a cartoon of a woman in a niqab looking at a police line-up of six other women in niqabs, pointing to one and saying, “It’s number 3, I tell you! I never forget a face!”

    • Blacksmith

      HA!

  • Kathy Prendergast

    I really don’t get why they pose for pictures in these things, esp. group shots: “Look, look! That’s me! On the left! No, really…it’s me! Can’t you tell?”

    • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

      No sooner than I respond to ‘Shebel’ than you post that entirely accurate statement.

      I think this photo might belong more with your post…..

      My sister-in-law briefly taught english in Abu Dhabi, a very conservative Gulf State. She’d signed a contract lasting a semester. Gender segregation was strictly adhered to. When she taught the boys, most of whom were only 9 or 10, the door to the classroom always remained open and an armed guard was always present. She took group photos of the girls, all of whom wore niqabs, at the end of the semester. At first glance I thought they were photos of garbage bags…I really did.

        In the 1990s If you were a single woman traveling by bus in Turkey (not public transportation in Istanbul) they wouldn’t seat a man next you. Also told to look down-never to make eye contact with a man if out walking .

      • Kathy Prendergast

        9- or 10 -year-old girls are forced to wear niqabs? How disgusting. I teach English too and this is the reason why I will never teach in one of those countries, even though the money I could make (all tax free) would be substantial.

      • Kathy Prendergast

        It’s no coincidence they look like garbage bags, as they think women are garbage.

  • WalterBannon

    Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi is an anti-Semite scumbag

    Dear god, the one in th middle is ugly!!

  • Justin St.Denis

    If a potential new Canadian is really into Batman, woud s/he be permitted to attend their citizenship ceremony in costume?

  • John

    Montréal’s CJAD radio station had an interview on the sbuject with the creator of “Little Mosque on the Prarie…a T.V. series of which not a single episode every made a fucking dime. She claimed the niqab was a feminist choice and that criticism of it was just plain racist.

    In the annals of canadian broadcasting “LHOTP” is almost as good…almost but not quite as good…as “The Trouble with Tracy”…which, I believe, actually did make some money.

      Was English her second language;)

    Let’s ban all shittty Islam dress and all shitty Islam words and all shitty Islams. Bloodthirsty medieval heathen Islams are a pain in the kiester and we should exclude them entirely. They’re a barbarian curse on humanity and they should be shunned like rats.
