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.
Ralf Jäger, interior minister of migrant crime-hit German state North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) made the remarks amid intense discussion in Germany following calls by the national interior minister Thomas de Maiziere for a partial burqa ban.
The left wing politician rejected the rationale for banning the Islamist garment, and said it was purely motivated by right-wing parties trying to shore up their poll positions. Speaking on Bavarian radio, Jäger said: “A burqa ban brings no security, but [is driven] only by election campaigns in some [German] states”, reports Focus.
That’s as much of a non sequitur as claiming that prohibiting people from engaging in public political theater with one’s face concealed, (KKK deterrent), means that kids can’t go out on Halloween night with their faces covered.
A broken clock is right twice a day, and goofball is right in his second contention. Burqua bans are nothing more than disingenuous symbolic crumb-throwing on the part of mostly center-right politicians who want suckers to think that they care about immigration-driven demographic transformation, but don’t want to do anything substantive about it. Banning the burqua only bans the burqua, you’re still left with what’s underneath the burqua.
