When Rebel Media sent an FOI to Calgary Police to find out why the force approved the hijab as part of its official uniform, one line stood out. Police Chief Roger Chaffin noted there’s a “burqa” in development for officers and a cadet is already wearing one.
A burqa police uniform?
Maybe the chief confused the headscarf known as a hijab with the full ninja beekeeper costume that is the burqa?
But maybe not. It may seem farfetched but watch as I explain why we shouldn’t rule it out.
Don’t think our current generation of progressive police chiefs aren’t open to the idea of Canadian cops wearing a police uniform that is emblematic of radical Islam.
And, while some police forces are open to it in the name of “cultural diversity”, would such uniform “outreach” be available to others who want to embrace their cultural heritage on the job?
What if Constable Angus MacDonald wanted to wear his full kilt regalia on the job to embrace his Scottish roots? Would this be tolerated? My hunch is MacDonald would be reprimanded, sent home and threatened with termination if he were to ever try it.
For progressives, cultural diversity is good when it means accommodating the squeaky wheel that is radical Islam but not so good when it means accommodating cultures emblematic of “white privilege”.
