Dutch officials, police won't enforce new “burqa ban” law

David MenziesMission Specialist

The Netherlands has just banned the burqa, but enforcement is already an issue.

Maybe you believe someone should be able to wear as much clothing or as little clothing as possible, and to heck with what the state has to say.

But for the Dutch, faces must be uncovered in government buildings and on public transportation, and the ban includes ski masks and full-face helmets as well as the burqa and niqab.

Even though the law is now the law, officials are refusing to enforce the ban.

Staff on public transportation aren't being compelled to deny entry to people with their faces covered, and the police say that enforcement is not a priority.

Dirk wasn’t that vid incredible? If I owned a retail outlet I wouldn’t want to let a burka in my store.

Menzies hit the nail on the head. Most reasonable Canadians agree. Its the oppressive and intimidating garb of Islamists. Law enforcement need to do their job.

It seems to me that the burka would be an important tell in an interview for immigration screening. Burka’s are political Islam’s way of saying F.U. to the west as they enjoy our bounty.

Hi Tommy,
Hope this letter gets to you, and that your keeping your chin up. I wanted to write to you straightaway, only we’ve had a couple of deaths in the family In the last week and now another elderly relative rushed into hospital. I Live in Lincolnshire, but flew out to Prague couple of days ago for eye surgery ( Lens replacement) so I’m typing this letter almost blind, LOL.
I have financially supported you for a few years now, I feel like I know you. People have commented that I am a female Tommy Robinson, as I have fire in my belly like you and I’m very passionate about right and wrong, this has caused me to fall out with several family members, as I will not have anyone say a bad word about you. I don’t know whether you’ve seen my picture with free Tommy banners covering my house, I’m wearing a yellow tea shirt and holding a free Tommy bath towel.
I would love nothing more than to meet you in person and shake your hand, or even better give you a kiss LOL. 💋
I was invited to go on the cruise that you never got to go on, hopefully we’ll meet one day. Are used to work in security and was a door supervisor, so if you’re ever in Lincoln and need security I would be happy to do that for you free of charge obviously.
Hope they’re treating you well and you enjoy your visit from Ezra. I also donate to him to visit you. I enclose my tel no. In case you ever come to Lincoln and need anything at all, it would be my honour to help (& meet you obviously)
Take care #weloveyouTommy ❤️❤️❤️❤️😘😘😘😘 #youaremyhero

At least the Dutch have the law, here only Quebec has the guts to insist on this type of law.
Here is real Diversity:
True “diversity” is when all races stay in their countries of origin and keep their own customs and culture. When you force all the races together diversity is destroyed as native root races and cultures are destroyed.

We have the same problem here, just not an incident to display it.

I think it would be interesting to send Kein to Holland and have him walk around with a balaclava on his face for the day and see how many tickets he picks up, all the time having a woman walk around in front of him with a Burka on her face and compare the amount of fines the two are given.

This is how “progressive” (aka socialist regressive) states become police states. Law enforcement agencies decide they are a branch of government and will decide the law; hence making themselves the premier branch. Evidence the FBI witch hunt in the USA, following Obama’s progressive agenda. Or, in Canada, police ignoring and not enforcing court injunctions against criminal environmental agitators; or the Caledonia fiasco in Ontario. The ‘progressive’ police in the Netherlands are just following the pattern.

This whole issue should have been nipped in the bud when it first started happening. Now that Holland is overrun, they’re going to ban burqas? I think China has the right idea with the Uyghurs.

You don’t need a burqa to disguise yourself when stealing booze from your local LCBO. We are such an advanced society .Diversity is our strength !

Keith, they all gutless and cowards over there

I agree. What’s the point of having laws if they aren’t enforced? The problem is that the police have so much work to do that they can’t enforce every law. Even so, when they don’t charge people, it sends a bad message to the criminals. Then the word gets out and they deliberately break the law.

The whole problem for the Dutch is their Prime Minister, a spineless individual with no spunk. Why doesn’t he have a word in the Chief of Police’s ear.

OFF TOPIC… The Peoples Party of Canada.

Immigration Plan.

ssue
The primary aim of Canada’s immigration policy should be to economically benefit Canadians and Canada as a whole. It should not be used to forcibly change the cultural character and social fabric of our country. And it should not put excessive financial burdens on the shoulders of Canadians in the pursuit of humanitarian goals.

Despite Canada already accepting more immigrants that almost any other country, both the Liberals and Conservatives support an unsustainable increase in the annual immigration intake, and are using mass immigration as a political tool to buy votes among immigrant communities.

Facts
Right now, only 26% of all the immigrants and refugees who come to Canada every year are directly chosen because they have the right qualifications and work experience to fulfill our economic needs. The rest are dependents (spouses and children), come through the family reunification program or as refugees, do not work, or do not have the skills that we need even if they find work.

Immigrants generally have lower wages than non-immigrants. They pay on average about half as much in income taxes as other Canadians but absorb nearly the same value of government services. A study puts the cost to taxpayers in 2014 at roughly $5,300 per immigrant living in Canada, for a total annual cost of somewhere between $27 billion and $35 billion.

Demographic studies have shown that newcomers are a bit younger on average than Canadians, but not enough to have a noticeable impact on the rate of aging. The Liberal government has made matters worse by increasing the number of parents and grand-parents accepted under the family reunification program.

Mass immigration also inflates housing prices. More than 41% of all immigrants to Canada settle in and around Toronto and Vancouver, which have some of the least affordable housing among big cities in the world.

Our Plan
Our immigration policy can benefit Canadians only if we welcome the right kind of immigrants. It should prioritize Canada’s economic interests and be calibrated in a way that does not jeopardize Canadian values and the maintenance of our national identity.

A People’s Party government will:

Substantially lower the total number of immigrants and refugees Canada accept every year, from 350,000 to between 100,000 and 150,000, depending on economic and other circumstances.
Reform the immigration point system and the related programs to accept a larger proportion of economic immigrants with the right skills.
Accept fewer resettled refugees (see Refugees policy – Coming up) and limit the number of immigrants accepted under the family reunification program, including abolishing the program for parents and grand-parents.
Limit the number of temporary foreign workers and make sure that they fulfil temporary positions and do not compete unfairly with Canadian workers.
Change the law to make birth tourism illegal.
Ensure that every candidate for immigration undergoes a face-to-face interview and answers a series of specific questions to assess the extent to which they align with Canadian values and societal norms (see Multiculturalism policy – Coming up).
Increase resources for CSIS, the RCMP and Canadian Immigration and Citizenship to do interviews and thorough background checks on all classes of immigrants.
