Burqa banished from public square as Denmark enforces “face mask” prohibition

David MenziesMission Specialist

In May, Denmark’s parliament approved an anti-face mask law essentially targeting the burqa and niqab, and on August 1st, the law came into effect.


Only a few days later, police were called to a shopping centre north of Copenhagen where a 28-year-old woman was wearing the Islamic face-concealing veil.

Danish police did what they are supposed to do by enforcing the law, but because this arrest involved an aspect of Islamic culture, the usual suspects broke into a fevered sweat.

But, wouldn’t it be great if Canada – as opposed to just Quebec – followed the Danes’ lead and banned this hideous haberdashery from the public square?

Danish Justice Minister Soren Pape Poulsen has previously noted about the face mask:

“It is incompatible with the values in Danish society and disrespectful to the community to keep one’s face hidden when meeting each other in public spaces.”

And he’s right. Not being able to recognize someone in public goes against one of the fundamental freedoms we so cherish in the West.

Andrew Stephenson…Japan has the lowest murder rate of all…it also has very xenophobic immigration policies and one of the most conformist monocultures on the planet.

So, basically, our illegally obtained guns are coming from cities controlled by the Democrats. "

I don’t believe there’s any evidence to support that claim.

Can you imagine what the North End would look like if they had guns?

Ah… they do have guns. That’s how bullets come out and kill people."
They don’t. Winnipeg’s got a high murder rate, but a relatively low proportion are firearm related. The question is how much worse would it be if they had more than machetes? "

“Why does Mr-Babies-Are-Parasites keep dragging these old chestnuts out and ignoring certain inconvenient truths? The real problem is that Chicago , like all the big US cities with high murder rates have been strongholds of the Democrats for 50 years and more. Baltimore, Chicago, DC, Detroit, New York, LA.”
New York’s murder rate is half the national average, and you omitted several other notable solid democrat cities, like Honolulu, Portland, Seattle, San Diego…. all of which have murder rates far lower than the national average. Comments?

I doni’t think voting Democrat causes crime. Correlation does not equal causation. Black people vote very strongly Democrat, no matter if they’re the crime-prone underclass, or very affluent. White democrats are not exactly known for crime either, whilst the Republican has its own underclass with crime issues of its own (see Fentanyl and runaway alcoholism, which disproportionately affect poor white rural areas, the Trump heartland). It’s rather more complex than your “facts” suggest.

“Almost all the highest murder rates are in countries with very strict gun control. "

Almost all the lowest murder rates are in countries with very strict gun control as well. How well do you think Honduras enforces the rules, or do the drug lords control everything? Perhaps there is some other variable at play (possibly related to being third world countries controlled by drug cartels) since if you look at countries with comparable socioeconomics, the US is by far the worst.

Gun ownership is rare in most of Europe and the advanced Asian countries, as well as Canada, yet crime is far lower than in the US. In Singapore you could be literally flogged if you try to carry a gun around in public, yet its murder rate is the lowest in the world. Deflections about Honduras don’t change that fact – the US is the only developed nation with a murder rate so high that you’re forced to use Honduras as a basis of comparison!

The Swiss don’t carry their guns around. It is purely a military preparedness thing based upon their history and geography as a small, neutral state that has found themselves in the middle of some very large wars, not an individual self-defense consideration.

The problem in Chicago is almost entirely gang-related.

It doesn’t matter how many times you show the evidence and facts. He just keeps dragging out the nonsense.

What’s your opinion on that?

As for Louisiana, and the rest, the further they are from a Christian moral foundation the worse they are. Plano Texas has probably the highest gun ownership rate of any city in the world but one of the lowest murder rates. Switzerland has the dreaded “assault rifle” – capable of full auto fire- in almost every home and a very low murder rate. The government there provides all the ammo you care to shoot and builds the shooting ranges. They also sponsor the annual shooting day where most of the population spends the day shooting on the public dime.
What’s your opinion on that?

The US does not have the highest murder rate in the world. They are not even in the top 10. Or 20. Or 30. Or 40. Or 50. Or 60. Or 70. Or 80. Or 90. Or 100. You have to get to the top 110 to get to the US rate. If you removed the Democrat strongholds mentioned it would be even lower.
What’s your opinion on that?

Honduras is the highest even with a ban on guns.

What’s your opinion on that?

Mexico is extremely high with only one gun store in the country.

What’s your opinion on that?

Almost all the highest murder rates are in countries with very strict gun control.

What’s your opinion on that?

But Mr-Babies-Are-Parasites will continue to spew his BS on regular intervals.

Here is the reality that Mr-Babies-Are-Parasites can continue to ignore:

Andrew Stephenson more for you to digest.
https://www.americas1stfreedom.org/articles/2015/7/17/how-the-uk-covers-up-murder-stats/ "

Although true that that the UK uses slightly different metrics to measure homicide (yes, convictions matter), they DO include unsolved crimes in that number until trial rules it out, rendering that opinion specious. This was not hard to check.

“Alberta Maga commented 19 hours ago
Andrew Stephenson Canada has a much higher rate than the UK as well.”

1.7/100k. 50% higher than the UK, but still a third of the rates in the US.

“Ted Tadright commented 18 hours ago
Andrew Stephenson ignores the fact that the highest murder rates in the US are in cities like Chicago where criminals prey on largely disarmed citizens because of the very restrictive gun laws there. "

The problem in Chicago is almost entirely gang-related. Innocent bystanders are generally not being “preyed on” at all – chances are pretty good that both individuals involved have weapons and some sort of pre-existing beef with each other. The cliche about "most murders being committed by someone you know’ is not baseless – about half are, and easy access to guns makes these crimes far simpler. Can you imagine what the North End would look like if they had guns?

Restrictive gun laws need to be applied widely, not locally, it’s not helpful if it’s easily bypassed by simply driving for a bit. (same reason that if the US tightened up its gun laws, OUR gun crime rates would drop, since most of our illegal weapons are smuggled in from the US).

Looking at state-level statistics, Louisiana is the worst, at ~12/100k, ten times the British rate, and more than twice the American average (and four times that of say, New York City, another strongly gun-controlled Democrat haven). What’s your opinion on that?

Andrew Stephenson ignores the fact that the highest murder rates in the US are in cities like Chicago where criminals prey on largely disarmed citizens because of the very restrictive gun laws there. Also, the murder rate in London has now surpassed New York City. Stephenson seems to believe the ticket to peaceful and orderly society is to present criminals and terrorists with the softest possible targets, as in Chicago and London. This, of course, is the opposite of reality, but that never stopped the left before, and doesn’t stop the left now in their rainbows and unicorns approach to the problem of violence in society. Virtue signalling trumps reality with them every time, and the consequences be damned. They like feeling morally superior no matter how many lives are ruined and/or destroyed by their stupidity. Canada can’t afford to go down that road.

Andrew Stephenson it is not a hat. And the law applies to everyone unlike in Liberalland where the law is subjective depending on who breaks it.

‘Andrew Stephenson’ Land – where all citizens are disarmed and subjugated by law so terrorists can rape and kill them en mass and they can be jailed for speaking about what is being done to them, i.e. the UK today."

Oddly, the “disarmed” citizens of the UK are “killed” en masse at far lower rates than those freedom-toting gun-waving Muricans. (1.2/100k in the UK, 5.4/100k in the US.)

Wearing an unusual hat is not a precursor to societal collapse, unless you are in Hat Conformity Land, which some people seem to think they are.
