Survey: Majority in Switzerland want to ban burka

StaffRebel Columnist

A new survey has found more than 70 per cent of Swiss want to ban the burka.

The survey was published by Le Matin Dimanche and asked 15,824 people across Switzerland what they thought about the issue. 55 percent of respondents fully approved of banning the burka and 16 percent were on the whole in favour.

96 percent of those who vote for the Swiss People’s Party approved of the ban while 73 percent of Liberal-Radical voters and 75 percent of Christian-Democrats do as well.

Green party voters were the lowest with only 33 percent. Socialist Party voters were quite even with 47 percent supporting the ban and 49 opposed to it.

The canton of Ticino has already banned the burka.

I don’t think they should ban it. At least not yet. First, use it to identify extremists and kick them out! Once we’ve got rid of the majority of Niqab-wearing families – then it should be banned. You can bet that every one of these families are sending money to ISIS or other such groups, and that’s the key to their arrest and deportation.

You can also assume, that of the 38% of Muslims demanding Sharia Law in Canada, that every single Niqab-wearer is part of that group. And why wouldn’t they be? They’re the “most devout”!!

Of course they want to ban the burka. Any sensible country that believes in freedom would. Its an outright subjugation of women and does not fit free societies.

Too bad – until the stand up it will not happen

Even the Swiss are going to get what they deserve.

Only a matter of time.

P.P.S. And, of course, behind these burka wearing Muslim women are very dangerous Muslim men.

P.S Any Muslim woman who wears a burka is a dangerous and loathsome radical Islamist.

Don’t ban the burka……just ban radical Muslims. Then Western Civilization will be free of the loathsome cancer that threatens its democratic culture.

We in the West need to firmly understand that Islam is a political/social system more than a religion.

We also need to understand that the muzzling of women is a victory symbol from Islamic men.

Until this understanding happens, we will continue to lose until such time very soon when the damage will be irreversible.

To me a burqa is basically a middle finger to the native residents. It means no assimilation or association with non-muslims. The very people who allowed you to leave the shit-hole you came from and have a better quality of life.

These days it does not matter what the majority want until the majority is Islamic.

Since 9/11 – IN THE NAME OF ISLAM: 31,655 Attacks, 201,410 Killed, 282,209 Injured…. that we know of.

It’s simple really…. Those cute brown and white dairy cows, with the tinkling bells around their necks, have never taken well being approached by people wearing black garbage bags over their heads…. Same for the Berner doggies… They react by barking and biting!….

Probably because democracy is sham and I never had a say about what was to become of my country. Also what else can you expect from a country that refer to their dollar coins as a “Looney”

Why did you invite and encourage them to come to your country in the first place? Pure lunacy.
