It takes a nation to protect the nation
I think that petition could be worded better. The title talks about a blanket ban on the hijab, then the text talks about it being banned for the RCMP and other representatives of the government, but also seems to hint at a blanket ban. Then it also talks about the burqa.
We have to be clear about our arguments, because the Alinsky leftists, will hold us to the highest standards, even while they are importing thousands of army deserters to abuse us and our women.
As the petition says, the hijab is a political symbol, and as such, so it can be argued that it should not be worn by officers of the state, particularly those enforcing the law. But for non government representatives, private individuals, I don't see wearing a hijab as a problem.
The burqa is a different matter altogether. The burqa is a criminal like face covering that scares small children never mind us adults, and has been used in a vast number of crimes and Islamic terror attacks.
I believe in a blanket ban on all wearing of the burqa and niqab whilst walking around in public spaces. The ban should also apply to any other face covering. For motorcycle helmets, it would be judged that the helmet could be worn whilst stood by the side of the bike. Once you go more than a few metres from the motorbike, the helmet should be removed. This is only common sense for the protection of bank staff and security vans.
This may mean that it becomes much harder to demonstrate with anonymity - but its the fascist left that like to demonstrate with masks on and cause violent disorder, so it will inconvenience them far more than us. In any case, the police forcibly remove masks worn by anti-kuffarphobia demonstrators when they want, anyway.
