Burka Ban In Europe Supported Widely

There’s a lot going on here.

First and foremost, liberal elitists are doing what they do best, which is tell other people what they should be doing. When your government gets so big it starts regulating this sort of thing there could be a problem. But that’s a more general argument. Although they don’t address it and probably didn’t think of it, there are security concerns here. We have seen all over the world men disguised as women like this to get around security, or women wearing these things wrapped in C4 or something similar. So something to think about.

The other thing happening here is that Europe sees itself dying. They don’t seem to gave the intestinal fortitude to change their ways and move away from socialism and their liberal, politically correct ways, or work on their ultra low birthrate, but they do seem to at least unconsciously recognize they are being slowly overrun and are fighting back on visible symbols of the danger they see looming. That’s a theory anyway.

More than half of voters in four other major European states back a push by France’s Nicolas Sarkozy to ban women from wearing the burka, according to an opinion poll for the Financial Times.

As Mr Sarkozy presses ahead with plans to ban the wearing of the burka in public places, the FT’s latest Harris poll shows the move is not just strongly supported in France, but wins enthusiastic backing in the UK, Italy, Spain and Germany.

The poll shows some 70 per cent of respondents in France said they supported plans to forbid the wearing of the garment which covers the female body from head to toe. There was similar sentiment in Spain and Italy, where 65 per cent and 63 per cent respectively favoured a ban

The strength of feeling in the UK and Germany may seem particularly surprising. Britain has a strong liberal tradition that respects an individual’s right to full expression of religious views. But here, some 57 per cent of people still favoured a ban. In Germany, which is also reluctant to clamp down in minority rights, some 50 per cent favoured a ban.
