Islamophobia: What happens if we agree that removing a hijab is “humiliation?”

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

David Menzies is stepping in to guest host tonight, but Ezra Levant will be back tomorrow!

Hijabs are very much in the news these days.

And the mainstream media narrative would seem to be that hijabs are good! Hijabs are empowering. They're a fashionable proclamation of one’s adherence to a particular religion. But most of all, these headscarves are downright sacred. Any criticism of the hijab is nothing short of Islamophobia.

Last month Air Canada employees were attacked in the media for requiring the 12-year-old Fatima Abdelrahman remove her headscarf on the basis that she did not wear one in her passport photo. Later, Fatima said she was “humiliated” when she was escorted by a female employee to a private area to temporarily uncover her hair to confirm her identity.

Don’t you wish you got that kind of personal concierge treatment at the airport?

I’ve been doing a ton of flying lately, folks, and I can tell you with absolute authority that anyone who is donning a baseball cap or a Tilley hat or any other chapeau is told to take it off. Every single time. No exceptions.

Surely there’s a reasonable expectation that one’s “rights” must be curtailed somewhat while going through airport security.

It’s all about trying to ensure that planes aren’t hijacked or used as weapons of mass destruction.

Tomorrow, we will be observing the 18th anniversary of 9/11.

How sad that whatever lessons we supposedly learned on that dark day back in 2001 already seem to have been sacrificed upon the altar of political correctness. Which is to say, if you have a problem with the hijab, even for security reasons, you are automatically labelled a bigot and an Islamophobe.

NEXT: Marc Morano of Climate Depot will join me to talk about the latest climate change-friendly food choices. We've moved beyond bugs, folks — it's time to eat people!

FINALLY: Your messages to us!

I recently visited and emergency room at a Catholic hospital in Toronto. I was surprised to see a number of male doctors and residents wearing a Kipa (or Yarmulke), the small cap which covers the top of the head. I asked a staff member about it and she explained that particularly in Catholic hospitals you might see doctors wearing this Jewish symbol. Apparently doctors remember their grandfathers’ generation when mainstream public hospitals would not hire Jewish doctors.

Then I wondered, what if I insisted the doctor remove this headdress? He probably would, not out of disrespect for his own ideals and religion, but out of respect for others even if they are ignorant.

A lion protects his pride from competitors with all the ferocity he can muster. No quarter for jackals or hyenas is given in what is a clearly primal instinct. Has evolution, or some development of the human brain rendered us incapable of defending ourselves from the competitors or from spotting the “jackals and hyenas” threating us from within our territory. Whereas the lion fights to keep his pride we must fight to keep our western civilization. Sounds corny I know, but have you ever seen a lion chase down a hyena. That’s what I’m talkin’ about.https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=lion+killing+a+hyena&mkt=en-ca&httpsmsn=1&refig=0bdd1e03c3024720b8a4d7d80650215c&sp=-1&pq=lion+killing+a+h&sc=0-16&qs=n&sk=&cvid=0bdd1e03c3024720b8a4d7d80650215c&ru=%2fsearch%3fq%3dlion%2bkilling%2ba%2bhyena%26form%3dIENTHT%26mkt%3den-ca%26httpsmsn%3d1%26refig%3d0bdd1e03c3024720b8a4d7d80650215c%26sp%3d-1%26pq%3dlion%2bkilling%2ba%2bh%26sc%3d0-16%26qs%3dn%26sk%3d%26cvid%3d0bdd1e03c3024720b8a4d7d80650215c&view=detail&mmscn=vwrc&mid=84381446D343D325983084381446D343D3259830&FORM=WRVORC

OFF TOPIC…Boris Johnson PM. UK, a Conservative, has just fired twenty eight members of the Conservative Party because they are all Remainers who want to stay in the EU. He has also prorogued Parliament until the 15th of November. Boris appears to be doing everything he can to leave the EU but is fighting Globalist’s who are taking orders from Europe. Lots of dirty tricks.

This is war. Tzeporah Berman just got 2 million from an American environmental group to to further terrorize us. These people are horrible bullies.

The globalists are going to do everything in their power to stop us from defending ourselves. Its unthinkable. It feels to me like they are closing in.

Yes, I think I will have the Barbecued Breast please, medium rare.
I have read that human flesh tastes like Pork and is good for you…..Have you ever seen a under nourished Cannibal?

Head covering and robes, along with weird suits are a good thing. At least you can see them coming and be ready for the Zombie Knife.

Climate alarmists are demonic and the real danger to mankind.
Hijabs are a political FU to the west. Hijabs are like a red flag to me. I hate them.
Globalists/Islamists, the two heads of the monster we are going to have to face down.

That’s pretty fucked up. Anyone who doesn’t believe it is a battle between spiritualities and principalities is toast.

It’s all lies.
As dead flies give perfume a bad smell so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honour . The heart of the wise inclines to the right while the heart of the fool to the left.
Even as fools walk along the road they lack sense and show how stupid they are . Ecclesiastes 10 1-3

We need to start asking some serious questions of the concerned climate Cassies since they don’t practice what they preach. Like for example: who will be eating whom? Is there a race, age, gender preference? Is there an age limit? Will we eat the people before or after they die of natural causes, or will we simply kill them for meat? Who will do the killing? Who will do the eating? How will the meat be prepared? BBQ, slow cooked or baked? Enquiring minds want to know!!!!!!

If the masses are convinced it’s all going to end, then they will definitely support abortion and euthanasia/assisted suicide. Planned Parenthood agenda.
Can you imagine how many people are going to suffer from depression hearing this dooms day predictions that are being aired over and over again on all the tv programs playing in Joe Average’s family room?
No wonder why people are opting to check out, not because they’re terminally ill, but because they are simply depressed.

Humans’ bodies are now going to be composted when they die. Survivors can eat the vegetables grown in this compost.

If everyone goes vegan, then there will be too many animals on this planet.
People won’t have to worry about cannibalism because the animals will eat the humans!
Animals hunting humans. That’s rather regressive, isn’t it? Isn’t this how the Neanderthals started out?

I’m so tired with both climate panickers and Islamists. Both foist their views on everybody else. Where both gain a foothold, they leave a trail of misery. What we need to do, in the case of climate pushers, is to save screenshots of factual articles regarding failed climate predictions. I’m sure they’ll soon disappear from Google. Then we can show that these failed prophesies were made. And even if those deniers claim it was made up by us, some will realize that they’ve veen lied to. The power of propaganda is that people don’t want to admit that they fell for a hoax. Those who aren’t too proud to listen will realize we’ve been right all along. Some people would rather blindly believe to protect their vulnerable egos. And as for jihadists, the die-hards won’t listen but ordinary Muslims might.

I live in an area where Hutterites and traditional Mennonites live. The women wear some form of head covering. The difference between them and muslims is they have not weaponized their head covering to a political end; instead the covering is a true symbol of faith.

I have also travelled through many muslim countries where the covering was totally non-existent and even banned through to countries where it was nothing more than a fashion accessory, and did those dark eyed beauties know how to enhance their beauty with the scarf. Nothing religious.

In short, my opinion is the hijab is nothing more than a weaponized political symbol having no religious connotation.

Regarding cannibalism, if it comes to that I doubt that it will be the left becoming the Morlocks, they will be the Eloi.

It is extremely sick that an educated Swede would put forth the notion of Soylent Green being OK,isn’t it? If any globalists are in favour….then I suggest they volunteer to be the first “Big Mac”….it could be fed to their other supporters and they could have their fill of soy(boy)…..

The gobalists and their minnions are more demonic than human! Anyone that suggests cannibalism needs their head examined. And they should offer up themselves as a sample to those who are of like mind. Everyday it’s another scare by those who are quite honestly insane!
