Quebec's Burqa ban strengthens the bonds of community trust

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's show, I shared my thoughts on Quebec's decision to ban the burqa and niqab from the public service.

Being able to see the face of who you're interacting with is a form of trust that's an essential building-block of our society. Wearing a mask to hide one's identity is a tactic used by members of violent organizations like Antifa, the KKK, and ISIS.

Burqas and niqabs have no place in Canadian society, they violate the public trust and represent a sexist interpretation of Islam that forces women to dress in mini-prisons.

Jay Kelly just so you know the Muslim is the one that tied your hands behind your back so he could chop your fucking head off

Yes Colleen that is all true but when the extremists come for your heads those moderates that you’re talking about will point them towards you

I’ve had lots of Muslim and Middle Eastern friends and the key to keeping people from any place from becoming extremist is to offer them something better. Befriend, assimilate, show them what living in a Western society means.

The truth is, when you combine polygamy with a really strict code regarding females expressing any sort of sexuality you end up with a lot of men who are not going to have sex with a female any time soon . Tinder alone could assimilate a lot of young men.

Ron, a lot of Middle Eastern families help raise each other’s children. Triple strollers usually just means cousins.

This said, when people from very strict Islamic cultures come here, there needs to be a period of education where it is laid out very clearly that the laws are expected to be followed in our country just as strictly as the laws were expected to be followed in their country. Our women can walk down the street topless in a thong, including your wife, mother,daughter, etc. and if you touch them in any way you’re going to jail. End of story.

The big problem is men thinking they own women and women’s choices and women who don’t know if they can survive without men making their choices. It’s insecurity all around that can be dealt with proactively, but it has to be dealt with.

Jay Kelly the law applies to all face coverings, you are the one making it a target of Muslims. And sorry but the truth hurts. I doubt you actually know any Muslims.

Some of the comments on here make me wonder if critics of the Rebel are right when they describe it as a place where anti-Muslim conspiracists can spout off without fear of being called out.

I have the impression that many people on here would not recognize a Muslim if they met one. One even mentioned “a Muslim apartment building” as though cities designate apartment buildings based on religion.

When people use the terms Muslim and Islam on here are they talking about a religion, or a culture, or an ethnicity.

Muslims, like Catholics, are incredibly diverse in their backgrounds and ethnicities. Canadian Muslims, like Canadian Catholics, have backgrounds from around the world. Some have been here for generations, some have just arrived this year. They came from the United States, Malaysia, India, Europe, the Middle East, and elsewhere. Some women dress in Saris, some women dress in business suits. Some men are arch-conservative while others are radical liberals.

For mainstream Quebecers it is difficult to accept that society changes over time. With such a low birth-rate, and a rather stagnant political scene, some in Quebec just want to lash out at others.

I spoke to my brother in Vancouver last night and received his bi-monthly Islamic report. He has an apartment and being a senior , he takes a daily walk around the area which entails passing by a Muslim apartment building.
These are the refugees that Trudeau brought in two years ago. He always reported that the men disappear during the day but the women sit around the building doing nothing, while other women push their kid around in a stroller. To his disbelief, there are now many triple strollers that are being pushed around. He has no radical views, so I have to believe his theory that all these babies are coming from multiple wives, and they take care of each others kids.
His only comment was, "this is probably the most expensive city in the world to live in, where are all these kids going to live when they get older?’

Jay Kelly has got to be kidding, right? Nobody but a male fundamentalist Muslim or an ignorant apologist would say such a thing.
commented 2017-10-21 11:28:12 -0400
Dirk, so true. He would expose his neck to the sword while asking “why do you want to behead me, I defended you in everything?”

Jay’s alarm bells wouldn’t even go off when there is a jihad knife at his infidel throat.

Jay Kelly, how about you suit up and report back on how “empowered” you feel!

Niqabs and burkas are worn by women living within extremist families. This starts in childhood, and, women are taught they are worth half of what a man is; and, it’s their responsibility to blame themselves for rape, and the men in their life will accuse them of adultery is there are not 4 male witnesses to testify to rape. Additionally, men in these extremist families beat their wives and subjugate them; treating them as property rather than a human being. Did you every wonder if these garbs and face masks are covering up bruises and swelling? Keeping the woman further isolated in Western society. Did you know, there are threats of death in some families when a woman says she doesn’t want to wear niqab or burka? Honour killings and acid attacks take place within these extremist communities. Men also consider non-muslim women evil and deserving of rape; research muslim rape gangs & human trafficking of non-muslim girls and women.
Supporting the niqab and burka = supporting human suffering and restricting freedom.

If you think it’s hateful of Quebec to take this small step, I think you have completely distanced yourself from reality.

Jay Kelly, do you also ignore other Islamic fundamentalist practices such as:
Child marriage
Sharia Law imposed in enclaves
Death to apostates, homosexuals, non-believers etc…
Jihad in all it’s forms
Islamization of the West
Acts/words of anti-Semitism
Hatred toward Christians, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, atheists etc…
Mass migration to undermine non-Islamic nations
Using democratic liberal societies to impose blasphemy laws – forbidding criticism of an ideology
Diverting untold millions from the West to fund terrorists, using OIC and Muslim Brotherhood front organizations (yes, this is happening in Canada too)

Jay Kelly = paid troll of various aliases/monikers
Did you finally get that raise Jay?

Jay Kelly: It seems rather hateful to force a woman to dress in black from head to toe in the hottest days of July or face the consequence of receiving a beating. But then your a guy so you don’t have to worry about being on the receiving end.
commented 2017-10-20 23:32:18 -0400
For many women there is an attempt at modesty. Christians and Muslims and Jews all agree that a woman deserves to be respected for her modesty because the wider male-dominated society may want to see it otherwise.

The Quebec law seems just hateful. As though some women should be persecuted because of their free choice.
commented 2017-10-20 21:18:33 -0400
Burkas and Niqabs are instruments of Islamic misogyny.

Hi Rebel,
As I See It, the BAN is Long Over Due. Should Have Been Done Years Ago. Problem – It Doesn’t GO Far Enough. Time to BAN things Like the Kerpa and OTHER ITEMS. As I See It, quebec’s Example means what is Good for the Racists People’s Republic will Start to Slowly Start to Spread Across Canada and that is VERY GOOD in My Views

D Boldock commented 1 hour ago, “The veil deliberately marks women as private and restricted property, nonpersons.”

According to an elderly Egyptian gentleman in the Norwegian documentary, The Muslim Brotherhood, the veil, which he doesn’t approve of, is also a form of “Soft Jihad” against the West. It’s promoted to normalize the Arab/Wahabi form of Islam here, so we get used to it and are more ready to accept it and make concessions to further it. Since Muslim children aren’t permitted to celebrate a pagan festival like Halloween, we’re now calling that celebration, Pumpkin Day and Orange and Black Day. Imagine how difficult that would be if we never saw a headscarf, never were aware that Islam existed to any extent in our midst. The niqab makes the whole process easier
to swallow.

D Boldock, excellent post!

@Robert Raymond, Your use of the word, “Islanimals” makes me really not want to read any more of your posts. It’s a stupid word!!
commented 2017-10-20 16:43:28 -0400
The veil deliberately marks women as private and restricted property, nonpersons. The veil sets women apart from men and apart from the world; it restrains them, confines them, grooms them for docility. A mind can be cramped just as a body may be, and a Muslim veil blinkers both your vision and your destiny. It is the mark of a kind of apartheid, not the domination of a race but of a sex.

Sometimes Quebec gets it right.

Quebec can be a trailblazer in the nationwide banning of niqab’s and burka’s.
commented 2017-10-20 11:51:02 -0400
Good on Quebec, seems there is a glimmer of intelligence shining there yet.

Anyone hiding their faces are intent on committing a crime . . . and getting away with it.
That’s why bank robbers hide their faces.
Maybe islanimals aren’t going to rob banks but then when completely covered, how do you know if the wearer is a man or woman. Sorry, in today’s society, it makes no difference.
Male islanimals could cover their faces and entire bodies and this would let them gain access to ladies rooms.
Any of you ladies ever see an islanimal completely covered in the black tent with their faces covered in the ladies room and wonder if the that person was male or female?
commented 2017-10-20 11:40:02 -0400
Public Face coverings should be banned entirely in Canada period.
The safety of our citizens should come before personal beliefs plane and simple!!
