French PM backs burkini bans: Manuel Valls says the swimsuits are based on the ‘enslavement of women’

France’s Prime Minister has backed the banning of burkini swimsuits, saying they are not compatible with French values and are based on the “enslavement of women”.

His comments come after a series of towns in the Mediterranean coast announced a ban, citing security concerns following a summer marred by extremist attacks.

    Once again this is Muslims giving the finger to their host country and really has nothing to do with Islamic female “modesty”. Otherwise the women would not even want to swim in public places with men present, especially those “infidels”. They would have their own private pools or float around in their bathtub, assuming they know about bathtubs.

  • They are not swimsuits; they are drowning hazards.

      Who knows? Maybe they serve as shark repellents.

      Then why should we discourage them?

    Just tell the fucking screwheads that swimming was invented by the Jews and that if they know what’s good for them they’ll avoid the water or wind up like pharaoh’s fucking army in the Red Sea.

    Valls is a sleazy wimp, but he’s right on this. What is that quote – something like “rather than wait for the right person to come along, we need to create the conditions whereby the wrong people are forced to do the right thing”.

      He’s only saying this because the political winds are shifting. You’re right about him being a sleazy wimp though.

      I might actually buy a newspaper the day his obituary comes out.

    I’ve been trying to think of a cocktail that I could name the burkini.
