That LAX cop didn't like my questions about niqabs -- but compared to this British writer, I got off easy

David MenziesMission Specialist

I discuss the unfair and potentially dangerous double-standards of the Transportation Security Authority (TSA).

In our politically correct post 9/11 world, we now seem to have the worst of both worlds.

While we all understand to a certain degree that the safety measures taken by the TSA are there to keep us all safe in a "better safe than sorry" kind of way, it does make one wonder why security agents will focus on a kid wearing a baseball cap but ignore someone who's wearing a covering from the very religion that should raise concerns. News flash: those who perpetrated the terrorist act on 9/11 were motivated by that very same religion.

To add insult to injury, if you dare question the apparent double-standard, instead of getting a satisfactory answer the only thing you're likely to get is an unplanned overnight stay in the airport while you end up missing your flight due to insubordination.

Terry I did not out you…others did on their own initiative….it was not mine to invoke and it is not mine to stand down. You should be very grateful that you are the top of the food chain in your office.

Now what was it exactly that you hoped to achieve on this site?

Hey Rude – are you taking in some refugees or not????

The UK is pretty much an Islamic State so not surprised by the British reaction. As for the States and Canada, there is a lot of misinformation about Islam and what is part of the religion and what is part of the culture. It seems here in Canada multiculturalism trumps everything from women’s rights to the security of our country.

Terry: My priorities are what they have always been. Fairness and equality, openness and transparency. Hmmm where have I heard about openness and transparency before? The difference is I believe it for all Canadians. I do acknowledge that there are some who bring elements of bigotry into the conversation but I also think the reverse is true. For politicians to try and use the voices of these individuals for their own political benefit and to try and frame the conversation to sneer at the any legitimate questions or concerns is in itself a cause of fear and division. When you talk about unity and shared values while you simultaneously sneer at anyone who disagrees with you, you don’t exactly instill people with confidence that they have the security of our nation or that the olive branch they extended is nothing more than for more than a photo op.

“Are you good and annoyed Terry? Well now you know how I felt. "

Thanks for the story. I’m sorry someone stalked your social media presence to attack your profession. I’m even sorrier you’re so ethically fucked up that you think that justified doing the same thing. But clearly, you want your echo chamber. Fair enough.

Terry…..for years the first response of the politically correct to oppinions they did not like was enforcement through sanctions against livelihood. Tell me all about it Terry…the cunt in charge of ethics and values at Veterans Affairs hovered over my LINKDIN account looking for a retaliatory “gottcha” after I tore a strip off her boss for the rampant anti-male hatred expressed in that workplace.

I told him that I was sick of the white knight attitude of he and his colleagues when it came to the double standard regarding “hostile environment sexual harassment” and that MY policy was that whenever anybody insulted me in the name of feminism they were going to get it back in kind summary and on the spot and any discussion of the merits of my doing that could reconvene in a court of law.

Now like you say….it crosses a line….when people come looking for somebody’s scalp over something that was said….particularly on topics that are rather lively..over coffee accross the street from the workplace.

Are you good and annoyed Terry? Well now you know how I felt.

“Terry Ruden the left talks shit about my liveliehood all the time buddy, so stick your hypocritical outrage you lazy civil servant ".
Uh…no. I guess you weren’t reading when Voss, the resident gutless stalker, posted my resume online. I’m glad… one experience with a conservative stalker phoning my incident and bullying my staff because he didn’t like my opinions was more than enough. It’s a little disappointing to see folks like Glenn endorsing that shit; it’s gutless.

“Terry: Glad you can speak informatively for all 3.65 million civil servants. "
Sight. Whatever. You think it’s a “problem”, no problem. Tells me where your priorities are at.
commented 2015-10-26 05:58:17 -0400
You know….I am starting to get what they are on about. Nobody would approve of strip searching a nun in a habit because of past behaviour of militant Micks in the IRA…..there are quite a few of them on the no fly list as well….this is getting to be dead camel flogging.
commented 2015-10-26 04:22:30 -0400
That’s not the best part. I can already see the aboriginals tell the muslims, “this is my land.” And then the muslims can try to apply sharia law on aboriginals.

The best part of radical Islam taking over will be seeing the useful idiots get their REWARD LMAO.

No one thought we would need a rule banning a niqab at a citizenship ceremony either until it happened.

Glenn – I am here at my own behest. Period, full stop. When you post this vaguely insulting shit about my livelihood, I really do think you’re crossing a line.
commented 2015-10-25 22:50:05 -0400
Edward: ’Terry the fact that your friends are ridiculing is no surprise." Indeed. Because the idea of banning civil servants from wearing niqabs when none do is, in fact, ridiculous.
commented 2015-10-25 22:48:16 -0400
“Terry, let’s say, for the sake of it, that everything you say about niqabs etc. is correct, true, and not a lie.”
Let’s say we start our discussions without the need for generous acceptance that I’m not a liar. How bout that?
commented 2015-10-25 20:52:11 -0400
Rudden says Haper’s notion to ban the Niqab in the public service deserved ridicule.

But Rude would never even try to explain why it’s banned for voting, driver’s licence and public service in Turkey and other Muslim countries. We’ve all seen the Youtube vids of these animal “refugees”. Of Britain now up to a million rape victims, some killed in the process etc etc. Yet, according to Rude, to have any concerns AT ALL is ludicrous and laughable? You have to have pretty serious psychological issues to ignore reality to such an extent!!!

I just caught on to a pattern here…..it is the classic white knight feminist/masochist thing….the reason why Statler and Waldorf….

Are so perennial here…..especially on things relating to feminism.

They both buy into the women good/men bad thing…..

Terry is becomming more revealed as he feels he governing party has changed…..

At first I suspected he was here at the paid behest of ….one of his few remaining clients….now I suspect he is here to establish marketability to a former client….either way….that makes him a sophist for hire.

Jimmy is his sock puppet……:-)

Terry the fact that your friends are ridiculing is no surprise. We all tend to associate with people who to some degree share our viewpoints so getting a ringing endorsement from Quasimodo when you work with him is no great feat. Peter Netterville: Rick Plesnick seemed to indicate that he already witnessed this if I understood his comment correctly. When I was a child I was concerned about people calling me names. Most of us grow out of that, But here we have the law and politicians bending over backwards because they are afraid of someone calling them names. On the other hand I do get it if I was some kind of law enforcement or border control it is not just an individual calling you a name it the potential for having your name smeared in the media as various interest groups try to portray you as a racist or Islamophobic and there is also the potential to lose your job and be sued. So am I surprised at the weak response from border agents or even the strong tone they take? Not at all. What is amusing however is how authoritarian they can be in demanding a kid take of his ball cap. Good to see they don’t take crap from anyone.
commented 2015-10-25 19:40:18 -0400
Hey folks…..I got the paradigm shift….instead of thinking “niqab” think “habit” as in what a Roman Catholic nun wears…..what is the difference.

The leftist does not equate what a moslem woman wears with a balaclava or a nina mask.

Western Democracies appear to be putting Islam on a Pedestal . If you have the nerve to question anything- you are somehow labelled as Islamophobic and Racist. The message is “Shut UP”! Canadians are well acquainted with ’ Citizens of Convenience’. Mohamed Fahmy is the latest to abuse our good nature. Maybe it is time for Canadians to reverse this role and become - " MUSLIMS of CONVENIENCE". Just think of all the advantages of being Muslim . — besides it being easier to board a plane. - If your boss wants to fire you because you are useless— just tell him that you are Muslim. - If you want a private hospital room—just say you are Muslim . - If you are in jail—-and want special treatment , just say you are a Muslim. -- University Grants galore I don’t think it takes much to become a Muslim—- just recite the Shaladaboomba. I could be wrong. But—

Terry, let’s say, for the sake of it, that everything you say about niqabs etc. is correct, true, and not a lie. So, what about what happened to Menzoid? That is what this thread is about, isn’t it? Do you, or do you not see that there is a problem, and that he has exposed it fairly accurately? Is it all in his head? (and nearly everyone else). Or, is there really a problem with the lack of security and accountability, and a few other things, all caused by liberal and Liberal political correctness? Don’t deflect by talking about what some other people may or may not have said at some point in the past, or any other historical distraction. Is it or isn’t it a double standard to have a policy that leads to a small boy getting snarled at for wearing a Batman hat but even suggesting that someone in a niqab should maybe be checked out is racist (or whatever, not politically correct and therefore just not gonna happen)? Menzoid says it’s a blatant double standard caused directly and to ill effect by the concept of political correctness and by those, like yourself, who support it. Well?
commented 2015-10-25 17:54:52 -0400
I would love to see the Menzoid show up at a slutwalk in a niqab.
commented 2015-10-25 17:45:53 -0400
And if you were to work in Quebec you won’t see one either because they won’t allow it, right?
commented 2015-10-25 17:22:46 -0400
“That a former colleague made that comment is almost as surprising as when Jimmy Da Silva agrees with you.”
I’m not sure what that’s supposed to imply. Speaking for myself, I have lived in Ottawa on and off since 1971, worked full time for the feds for three years, and have worked with and for federal clients since the late seventies. In all that time, I have never met or seen a Canadian public servant in a niqab. Never.
commented 2015-10-25 16:41:20 -0400
So should the same rules for the niqab be applied to Roman Catholic nuns wearing a habit? They seem to be designed by the same fashion designer.
commented 2015-10-25 16:35:40 -0400
Just in regard to the FEMA “camps” and depots where the “tupperware” coffins are stockpiled…and having some experience with emergency measures and collegues who work in that field…..they do not conform in strategic placement with ANY political conspiracy including (but not limited to) any mass deportation or mass internment of any population group.

My best guess having looked at it is that they are due diligence preparation for an earthquake in the New Madrid faultline area……and that theory is as valid as any other.

Peter, you can look it up on a video here about three weeks ago — full-length black gown and a cloth covering his whole head.
