Liberals’ favorite country bans Muslim women from wearing full-face veils

Denmark bans Muslim women from wearing full-face veils.

As a person who values individual liberty and limited government, I’d be very much opposed to a law like this in the U.S. It would be a violation of the first amendment, as well as something that I would view as being totalitarian.

But Denmark is the “happiest” and “most progressive” country in the world, and who am I to tell them what to do?

I do have to wonder why Muslims would immigrate to Denmark when it is so Islamophobic.

First woman fined in Denmark for wearing full-face veil

Woman fined 1,000 kroner (£120) and told to either remove her veil or leave the public space

August 4, 2018

A 28-year-old woman wearing a niqab on Friday became the first person in Denmark to be fined for violating a new law banning full-face Islamic veils in public places, media reported.

Police were called to a shopping centre in Horsholm, in the north-eastern region of Nordsjaelland, where the woman had become involved in a scuffle with another woman who had tried to tear her niqab off, police duty officer David Borchersen told the Ritzau news agency.

“During the fight her niqab came off, but by the time we arrived she had put it back on again,” Borchersen said.

Police took a photograph of the woman wearing the niqab, and obtained security camera footage from the shopping centre of the incident.

The woman was informed she would receive a fine of 1,000 kroner (£120) in the post, and was told to either remove her veil or leave the public space.

“She chose the latter,” Borchersen said.

As of 1 August, wearing a burqa, which covers a person’s entire face, or the niqab, which only shows the eyes, in public carries a fine of 1,000 kroner.

Repeated violations can be fined up to 10,000 kroner.

The ban also targets other accessories that hide the face such as balaclavas, masks and false beards.

Human rights campaigners say the ban is a violation of women’s rights, while supporters argue it enables better integration of Muslim immigrants.

Belgium, France, Germany and Austria have also imposed bans or partial bans of full-face veils.

Obama wants to replace 175 years of U.S. military law with Islamic law

On a personal level, I am against dress codes.

However, I also respect that there are certain organizations that have dress codes, and if I were to choose to be at one one of those organizations, I would obey whatever dress code they had.

Under Commander-in-Chief Obama, who has never actually served in the military, the Citadel, a 175-year-old U.S. military college, is considering giving its first ever exception to its dress code, and it’s doing so for religious reasons. Not for a Christian, not for a Jew, not for a Hindu. It’s for a Muslim.

Because, as Obama himself has said, one of his favorite sounds in the world is the Muslim call to prayer.

Every time that Obama treats Muslims and Christians differently, it is always, always, always the case that he sides with Muslims over Christians. This is just one more example. And it’s disgusting.

Muslims truck drivers get fired for refusing to drive trucks filled with beer? Obama sides with the Muslims.

Christian bakers don’t want to bake cakes for gay weddings? Obama sides against the Christians.

In Syria, Christians make up 10% of the population,  are they being targeted for the worst kinds of persecution.  However, during the two weeks after Islamist terrorists murdered 130 people in Paris, of the 132 Syrian refugees that Obama admitted into the U.S., 100% of them were Muslim, and 0% of them were Christian.

After Nidal Malik Hasan shouted “Allahu Akbar!” and murdered 13 people on U.S. soil, instead of referring to it as “Islamic terrorism,” Obama said that it was “workplace violence.”

Obama chose to marry a woman who said that, as an adult, she never loved the U.S. until after Obama got elected President. At the time, she had been an adult for 26 years. And this person who did not love the U.S. for 26 years is the person whom Obama chose to marry.

Donald Trump is an asshole. But at least he loves the U.S., and respects its traditions and values.

The “sexist” shirt worn by rocket scientist Matt Taylor was actually made by a female friend who gave it to him for his birthday

So this rocket scientist named Matt Taylor lands a spacecraft on a comet – the first time that this has ever been done – and a bunch of people claiming to be “feminists” accuse him of “sexism” because he was wearing a shirt which depicts scantily clad women holding guns.

My first reaction to reading about this was that if these women are holding guns, they are not victims – they are empowered.

Then, when I looked at the shirt, I immediately saw that this was a richly detailed, beautiful, colorful piece of art. I know the difference between art and porn, and this is definitely not porn. It is art.

The shirt was handmade by a woman named Elly Prizeman, who is friends with Taylor, and who gave it to him for his birthday.

The people who falsely claimed the shirt was “sexist” bullied Taylor to the point that he cried on international television.

Prizeman said of this:

Dr. Matt Taylor is an amazing, kind, loving and sensitive person.

I never expected him to wear my gift to him for such a big event and was surprised and deeply moved that he did.

I made that shirt for his birthday last month as I make clothes just as a hobby and he asked if I would make him one.

He is a close and very loved friend so made sure I did this for his birthday present.

I appreciate that everyone is entitled to their opinion and having worked with people and events for a long time I have certainly learnt that you are never going to please everyone….

I am so proud of Matt and his achievements and the fact he is an interesting and very brave person to do what he did with the very sweet gesture he made towards my gift and to wear his individuality with pride.

It has certainly made history more exciting and bold.

The clothing industry has expressed interest in mass producing Prizeman’s shirt.
