Germany: If We Ban The Burqa, We’ll Have To Ban Father Christmas Too

The German regional interior minister who shot to prominence over his alleged role in the failure to handle, and subsequent cover-up of the Cologne New Year’s Eve migrant rape attacks has spoken out against Germany introducing a French-style Burqa ban, saying to do so would mean banning all religious clothing — including Santa Claus outfits.

    The logical explanation might be he is nuts and on the take as well.

    Or you could note that “Father Christmas” is not actually a religious symbol. Or even better say he’s a German tradition and therefore exempt.

    The politician in this story is an idiot.

    But Santa Claus is Coca Cola’s mascot. Who needs him? I say put limits on immigration.

    The ban is on one form of religious dress, for security reasons. The hijab is not banned. Thy just need to adjust to a less extreme form of dress.
    I used to wear a Salvation Army uniform to church & when especially on certain church activities or sometimes when representing the SA. But, I didn’t wear it to church programs or any other things or places.

    These people wear them all the time,even at work, if allowed. They are pushing the intolerable down our throats and it should not be permitted.

    I am simply amazed at German stupidity. Their country is being eaten alive, yet they just sit there and watch it happen. They are being slowly replaced by “migrants”, yet they still think Merkel does a good job.
    No, stupid, a burqa ban is not tantamount to a Father Christmas ban.
    It’s high time to realize that a seventh century murderous cult is NOT on a par with Christian culture or any other peaceful culture willing and able to peacefully coexist with other cultures. Germans may cringe at this, but cultures are NOT equal. A “culture” bent on subjugating or killing everybody else is NOT equal to any culture worthy of the name.

    That is rather like telling me I cannot risk going outside because a blizzard is raging at the North Pole.

    No, you don’t. It’s your own damn country, and you should be able to ban symbols of oppression. Symbols from the Nazi-era, such as the swastika or the “Heil Hitler” salute, are illegal in Germany

  • Uh, no.

    One is the embodiment of Saint Nicholas and his saintly charity.

    The other is a misogynist’s idea of making life suck for women.
