Halloween costume wars: “Sexy Burqa” bad, “Sexy Nun” ok, says Amazon

David MenziesMission Specialist

Amazon’s UK division recently removed something called “the sexy burqa costume” from its website. The sexy burqa allows the wearer to display her legs and some cleavage, which of course, is completely contrary to what a real burqa is designed to do, which is to essentially make a woman a non-entity.

Amazon was downright spooked by some of the negative reviews of the sexy burqa costume, and caved to the pressure, removing it from its website.

Two points spring to mind regarding this costume kerfuffle:

One, if any article of clothing deserves to be mocked and disrespected, it’s surely the hateful haberdashery that is the real burqa, a fabric coffin designed to make women invisible 365 days a year.

Secondly, if Amazon feels religious-themed costumes are out of bounds, then why does its religious sensitivity policy not include Christianity?

You see, if you venture onto Amazon’s website, there’s no shortage of nun costumes for sale, ranging from “Scary Nun” to “Sexy Bad Habit Nun.”

Welcome to the new normal, folks, in which mocking the burqa is bad – because somebody might get violent – but mocking a nun’s habit is kosher because, really, what are a bunch of wimpy Christians gonna do...?

Islam is a political system and entity PERIOD. As non believers, we are under no obligation to accept it as a religion and should stop refferring to it as such. Refer to it as a political movement because it is the truth and because it pisses them off.

Its taken many years for women in the west to gain rights automatically afforded men, like the right to vote, equal pay,hold positions previously only for men. And the same for Gays, they have had a long fight for the rights that they now enjoy, like Gay marriage, equal opportunity and equal social rights. As the Muslims continue to grow in number, strength, influence and control within our free society, taking every advantage of those freedoms to use against us. It will not be long before we fall back in time where all the societal advancements that we have made will be eliminated. Women will be treated worse than they could ever imagine and the members of our Gay community also will be subject to a level of intolerance and persecution that are the stuff of nightmares. Women and Gay groups need to identify the threat that Islam poses to them and start to react where they contact their government representatives, protest, stop hiding their heads in the sand, stop excusing the violent behavior committed by Muslims. We need to stand up to the sinister invasion being carried out on our world, make no mistake here, failure to identify this for what it is will in a very short period lead to our enslavement. In the next two to five years Canada is going to undertake a drastic metamorphosis that will cast a Darkness over our land, that darkness is the Evil Ideology of Islam. Get ready for the stuff you thought were only in Fairy Tales.

“The thing is we are told we have it wrong that Islam doesn’t believe that way”.
Dawn Green, that is the definition of taqiyya.

Billy and Liza……it took Spain almost 700 years to purge itself of islam, and are now letting it happen again.
Those that ignore history are doomed to repeat it, as the saying goes.

Boycott Amazon, don’t support any business or individual which goes against your principle & values. Hit them where it hurt most, their purse.

“How many generations will it take to bring down western civilization and replace it with an Islamic model? " At this rate , a scant few. Every 11 years(?) the global Muslim population doubles. In our cities the effects are already being felt. In 5 years (my estimate) my small BC interior area will be suffering from the effects of shariah compliance also.
Regarding the Burka/Nun costumes, everyone knows only a Muslim complaint is valid or regarded in most of the west these days.
Amazon is being bullied and in turn bullying their sellers, for Islam.

Clinton would look a lot better wearing a Burka than she dose without one. The masked Bandit.

How about a scary Hillary Clinton hijab? Now that is frightening! Would that be halal or haram?

I would like to order this costume and encourage many other women to do the same, then on Halloween parade around the mosques in them just to piss off the muzzie men, but I know doing so would be putting myself and other women in mortal danger as the muzzies would become violent and wouldn’t be punished even if they killed someone. They would blame the women for tempting them in their sexy burqas and our dumbass judges would pardon them. It would be better if every muslim male would just be deported or better yet get a bullet in the head, and the worst problem plaguing Western countries would be solved permanently.

Everyday is halloween for these islamic pigs hiding under their curtains.

We now live in a Shariah-compliant society. The terrorists have won because we are “terrorized” of ridiculing Islamic culture, including the belief in women’s equality.
We’re going backwards folks. Trudeau/Soros and their ilk will have us back in the Stone Age soon enough.
To all you female SJWs: don’t complain when you and you’re granddaughters are forced to adorn a black bag, or can’t go to the police after being beaten by a spouse, or complain about being raped. Don’t complain when you’re stuck at home and not allowed to work, not allowed to go to school, not allowed to communicate with any man except your immediate family members.
To those in the LGBTQ community: be afraid, be very afraid. Allah is not pleased with you.
The question is, if the globalists continue to win: How many generations will it take to bring down western civilization and replace it with an Islamic model?
