Event asking all female students to wear Islamic headcovering canceled after national backlash

Rebel Staff

A controversial event organized by The Muslim Student Association has been canceled after the school received numerous complaints.

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, Mason High School in Ohio was originally scheduled to hold an event asking female students 'celebrate diversity' by wearing the Islamic headcovering called the hijab.

An email sent by school officials seemingly endorsing the event lead to the cancellation.

The original email said, “Mason High School is blessed to have a unique and diverse student body. In order celebrate this diversity and promote open mindedness, the Muslim Student Association is inviting all female students to participate in “A Covered Girl Challenge” which will allow students to wear a headscarf for the whole school day. Afterwards, there will be a discussion (open for all students, male & female) held in Z223 to share experiences and reflections.”

Principal Mindy McCarty-Stewart apologized to the community.

“This communication should not have come from our Student Activities Department because this was a student-led initiative, rather than a school-sponsored activity. We will put procedures into place in the future that ensure that any communication from a school email is for a school-sponsored event, and not merely supported by a student-run group,” she said.

The letter went on to say, “As the event spread beyond our school community, however, we received many strong messages that made me reconsider the event’s ability to meet its objectives. I now realize that as adults we should have given our students better guidance. After much consideration and after talking with the student event organizers, we have cancelled the event.”

I agree with Paul Crosby! Let’s ask Muslims to participate in a “let’s wear a cross” day and see how many muslims will jump with joy and participate!
In the same vein, In February or March, in one of its Saturday edition, the Globe and Mail had an article on the Muslim community in Fort McMurray and it was showing a photograph of the Fort McMurray mayor having a hijab wrap around her head to celebrate World Hijab day. So I asked myself if I were to create a Non-Hijab World day, how many Muslim women would participate in the name of diversity.
Well! none because with Islam, it is a one way street!
And on another note, the lady organizing the World Hijab day in Fort McMurray said to the Globe and Mail reporter that people’s right to criticize her hijab was ending at her throat!
Really! so you think mainstream would get at your throat, I thought, well as of March 2015, the only people going for someone’s else throat were this Muslim lady her own kind in the Middle East, not mainstream Canada! How insulting!

Now why would women want to wear a hijab, the symbol of the provocative female myth, the symbol of Eve myth, the symbol of cover the curves nature gave you because men are eternal children incapable of controlling their sexual urges. Ok, well let’s invite all men to grow a bear and see how many are rushing with enthusiasm to do so just to celebrate diversity.

It is time to “take back” American and Canada to the values and laws that made our countries. No one particular group in society should be considered “more equal” than another.

What I really object to is the increasing number of shops, and now even a local church, that are displaying stickers and/or large posters of the halal barcode seen here: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-7yfyBugAyJg/TZlOFiTthVI/AAAAAAAADCo/gUcZZjPBt8g/s170/Zainab%2BHalal%2BHomemade%2B2D%2Bbarcode.gif

For the past ten years, I have lived in a small Ontario town and each year, more and more signs of Islamization are visible to those who can recognize them. Recently one of our local grocers has started to display the barcode in its weekly ads in the local leftist free screed. It was displayed, blown up on a large poster, with just the words at the top “Kawartha Lakes Police Service” in the lobby of our local cop shop until I complained. I’ve since been blocked on the police FB and Twitter accounts for posting politically incorrect commentary (-:.

This year, there are lots and lots of hijabs. It’s a measure of the Muslim Bros. plan of stealth jihad incrusion into Canadian rural community.

A few years ago, I was driving through Toronto and stopped at a Country Style Donut Shop. I had intended to sit down and rest but once inside, I changed my mind because the shop was filled with men dressed in middle-eastern style clothing. The only women were behind the counter, serving. As I waited for my take-out order, a very tall person in a full niqab and burqa entered the shop. The men greeted this person, by name, with great jovial fanfare. I got my order and left.

All those terrorists on the FBI, CSIS and Interpol most wanted lists can walk around free in our midst without ever a worry someone may recognize and report them.

I could not care less if any woman wears a headscarf for whatever reason. None of my business. But to insist I wear one is not acceptable. I’m relieved that initiative was scrapped.

Wow, that’s even more sick than I thought…
So if a Muslim woman shaves all the hair off her head, does that mean she can walk around without wearing the various degrees of tent?
To take that a step further, does that mean that skanks like MacDonna Lady Gagme and Smiley Virus and the rest of the devil worshiping female occultists and demons in the ‘music industry’, can visit a Muslim ghetto in America, or say the Saudi kingdom , and wear anything they want as long as their hair is covered?
commented 2015-04-18 19:21:36 -0400
Dan, according to what I have read, the women cover their hair because it is the hair on a woman’s head that turns men on. This rational explanation (NOT ! ) may help to clarify why women can wear makeup, including sensuously glossy red lipstick, and tight fitting leggings (as many of them do at MacEwan University), because according to what I have read as long as the hair is covered, women are safe from being accused of teasing men with their sexuality. I know this sounds ridiculous, but that’s what I’ve heard about the purpose for the head cover. (The Blood of Lambs, by Kamal Saleem and The Trouble of Islam Today, by Irshad Manji)

As usual muslims are showing their arrogance and anti-democratic idiocy. They want their so called “religion” to be experienced, in a sense by everyone perhaps hoping for some new converts. There is no way in hell that any muslim should have any more rights anywhere in our countries than any other “true” religion. If these bigoted muslims wanted this ridiculous head scarf day they should have insisted on all religions having a similar day. I highly doubt that the terrorist muslim associations would have allowed this to happen. And by the way all muslims associations need to be shut down because they are all terrorist affiliated. No more of this muslims are above the law bs and deserve more privileges because they think they are better than everybody else. They are here because they were let into our countries to be law abiding Canadian or American citizens not to be causing trouble everywhere they go. They really are a sickening pompous group of people/terrorists.

I bet the picture of that sultry looking Islamic-type female at the top of the page with the cloth on her head, a smoke and tons-o-makeup is really pissing off a bunch of bloodthirsty Islamic savages.
I bet it’s turning a lot of them on too…

David T. I have yet to see a full Burka on the street where I live. I have thought about it, what would I do , I know what I would think. I would be uncomfortable, insulted, that on the streets of Canada we allow people to walk among us totally incognito. That an immigrant to Canada would have so little respect for their new country. I just find it abhorrent. I don’t think I could pass by a person in a Burka without a confrontation. I would have to say something. Why come to live in Canada if you feel the need to wear a Burka? It makes no sense to me, and is insulting to me.

It’s small complaints at first, but it’s incremental. Just chip, chip, chipping away. That’s the long term strategy. And guess what ? In little increments, it works. A human rights complaint here, a human rights complaint there. Very slowly you imbed your ideas into society as a whole. It’s genius actually. The (stupid) infidels have no idea !!!!!
commented 2015-04-17 21:58:02 -0400
@liza – You are absolutely correct. A devout Muslim would NOT smoke. In the Qur’an it says something on the line of : Your body is your temple, do not put anything into it that will harm you as that would desecrate it . (Forgive me for the lack of accuracy it has been years since I read it and no longer have it)

What! Maybe they can hold it AFTER the MUSLIM students agree to perform the 12 stations of the cross and celebrate Hanuka!

You know, I live in small town Ontario. Just yesterday, I saw a lone woman walking along the side of a busy street wearing a grey full-length burkha. I must say, I did a double-take. It looked so bizarre and isolating to me. It certainly made me wonder about why she was doing that. Was it to be provocative ? Was it her choice ? Was she being pressured to dress that way. ? I clearly have no idea.
I just know that it did not feel healthy or right to me. There is no place for that in this country.

Woman have been wearing head coverings for years. Islamic is just another headcovering style. I see no problem with that but to single out a particular headcovering using a now hate felt sect is just too much.
Like someone else mentioned why not a universal hat/scarf day. That would show diversity and not secularism.
Emagine muslims being forced or coerced into wearing the cross.

Muslims will try any tactic or trick to bring in their shariah law. Good it was cancelled.
commented 2015-04-17 20:50:43 -0400
Muslims continue to agitate and push their religion to see just how far they can push. Good to see common sense prevailed and the silliness was cancelled. Had it been Christians asking everyone to carry a cross or whatever, you only imagine the backlash from the Muslim community.

why all this?

“Celebrate diversity through uniformity”. What an oxymoron!

I didn’t think Muslims were allowed to smoke?
I don’t care about the hijab, it doesn’t cover the face(Nikab, is a no). The event does sound like some passive aggressive intimidation tactic.
commented 2015-04-17 19:49:57 -0400
why not have a " mandatory hijab day" any woman not complying will be whipped by the school morality police
commented 2015-04-17 19:41:31 -0400
And how would the Muslim “students” (in reality, agitators) have reacted if another religion asked all students, INCLUDING MUSLIMS, to participate in some symbol of another religion? Say, Hindu, or Sikh, or Buddhist, or (heaven forbid!) Christian…? Would these Muslim students have co-operated?

Then by what “right” do they have to make such a request in the first place? By this, they define themselves as Agitators, and Agitators have no belief in “Fair is fair.” These Agitators should be warned, and the next time expelled.

And the next day the school should have an assembly where they say the lords prayer and sing Onward Christian Soldiers and Abide with me. Then the next day they should were a turban. and the next day they should have a good old fashion barn dance and the next day they should rock around the clock. And the next day they should just shut up and go back to learning

“Perhaps the legitimate student body should organize an event asking all students to participate in ‘wear a Cross day’ since the flowering of the country was founded on Judeo-Christian beliefs and it would show acceptance and diversity on the part of the Muslim Student Association in particular.” P. Crosby. In the U.S.? Possibly. They’re not all Obamaized yet. More possible the “infidels” would be murdered first before this would ever happen.
commented 2015-04-17 17:26:32 -0400
Wearing the hijab or head covering is not dictated in Islamic teachings and has no religious imperative. This is just another political strong-arm ploy to intimidate those of Western culture or ‘infidels’. It is just plain ignorance and intolerance on the part of these ingrates. Perhaps the legitimate student body should organize an event asking all students to participate in ‘wear a Cross day’ since the flowering of the country was founded on Judeo-Christian beliefs and it would show acceptance and diversity on the part of the Muslim Student Association in particular.
