Amazon pulls “sexy burqa” Halloween costume after Islamic outrage

StaffRebel Columnist

A "sexy burqa" Halloween costume was removed from Amazon after claims it was offensive to Muslims.

“You’re all disgusting racists. My culture is not your costume,” wrote one enraged shopper.

“Whoever you are fear Allah” added another.

According to a screen shot of the item, the costume was priced at $30. RT reports that Amazon UK may delete the seller's profile if they fail to abide by the rules.

Halloween is a time for scary costumes. And what's scarier than a symbol of Islamic oppression? Clearly Amazon never thought about that.

I feel threatened when I am in the same space as a burka, You don’t know what is under there.
I think a sexy burka costume for Halloween is making fun, and I am all for making fun of the oppressive misogynous bee keepers batman suit Islamics call a part of their culture.

I’m glad they pulled it. Yhats a start. Amazon should pull all the other burkas from their stock. I find the burka to be the most offensive revolting piece of clothing ever worn by the human race. It’s religious message offends me and leaves me afraid for my personal safety. In addition I don’t feel inclusive when I’m in the same space as someone wearing a burka.

Bwahahahaha, what a terrible costume idea. I think capitalism would have taken care of this idea with out any help from outraged muslims.

I have heard that Master Trudeau ha purchased seven of these costumes, one for each day of the week. He plans to wear them during Question Period so nobody will see the guilt on his face, when he get’s caught misrepresenting the facts, this of course, is every time he opens his mouth.

But a harem girl outfit would be considered halal, right? Who were the harem girls? Why they were innocent non-Muslims European girls until they were kidnapped by Muslim slavers. Then they became sex-slaves to old wealthy Muslim sheiks, imans, rulers, and anyone who could afford a pre-teen for sex.

That went on for more than 500 years. Yet Muslims still wail about the Crusades, which was finally a reaction to Muslim attacks on Europe.

But hey, sexy muslim wear is verboten.

If they changed the name to “belly dancer”, then it would be the SJW screaming “cultural appropriation”.

Great idea: Vlad the Impairer outfits, including a stick with a Muslim head on it. No more dressing up as a vampire, just as Vlad, the most terrifying king and military leader who stopped Eastern Europe from being overrun by Muslims.

Or dress up as the Polish Guard who fought to stop the Muslim hoards at the gates of Vienna.

No cultural appropriation. What would the Muslims say? “We don’t want to be reminded of our invasions failing”? Not making Europe part of their 8th century world?

If they don’t like the Western freedom of expression, they could try Saudi Arabia. Oh wait. The Saudis won’t let them in other than to visit.

What Amazon, and pretty much everyone else in the Western world has forgotten, is that the concept of Freedom of Speech was crafted for the express purpose of holding in check, political and religious authority, as much through ridicule as through rational debate.

The moment religious authority is above being mocked or criticized, they begin to rule every single one of your choices.

Anyone seen any pork products at any municipal public events recently?

Didn’t think so.

The supplier just has to change the head covering into a wimple to turn it into a sexy Nun’s habit. They can even make it more revealing. Any backlash from the Catholic community will be ignored and laughed off as complaints of a religion out of touch with western secular society; that Catholics being insulted by such an innocent humorous costume shows their ignorance.

Such is the repressiveness of the regressive left.

Sharia creep! I just crossed those assholes at Amazon off of my retail list. Yet another place I refuse to support.

Well I hope they were made of fire resistant material because you can bet some whacko follower would try to set you on fire in the name of ALLAH.
