Torontonians divided on Sports Illustrated’s first “Swimsuit Edition” burkini model

David MenziesMission Specialist

One of the models in the upcoming “Swimsuit Edition” of Sports Illustrated is donning a so-called full-body “burkini.” 

While the burkini has already been banned and un-banned on some French beaches due to security concerns, some Muslims in Canada are worried the garment will be banned here, too.

With a photograph of the Somali-born former Miss Minnesota model Halima Aden in hand, I hit the streets of Toronto to ask if this is a celebration of diversity, or the normalization of the Islamist belief that women should be covered up as much as possible in public.

Speaking to people at Yonge and Dundas from a variety of backgrounds gave me a wide range of opinions. You wouldn't believe some of the reactions!

Even the “burkini” would be a flogging offence in the Islamic State.

From now on any one swimming in a pool with Muslims dressed in their full dress before you leave the pool get real close to them and give em a shot of warm water-you know what I mean LOL!!!!!Carry a Big Turk chocolate bar with you and chuck it in the pool and then blame the Muslim that’s always fun(remember Bill Murray in Caddyshack)!!!!

Tina, did that woman shower before she entered the pool? I’m answering for you. No she did not… Welcome to your future. The New World Order has decided for you.. Soon, I’m off to retire to a Country where Islam does not exist.. It’s an incredible way to spend the last years of my life.. In the West, you are all stuck with this shyte.. Good luck…

Menzoid, it’s an “Itsy Bitsy Yellow Polk A Dot Bikini”.. You left out Yellow… Miss Minnesota? Any relation to Omar? That old White Guy is Pussy Whipped.. He best shut up now, or his Old Lady may cut him off.. Not that it matters to the rest of us.. Yes, this should go over really well in the West.. NO!! It will not go over well.. This nonsense will never take hold in the West.. We are on to the Virtue Signalling, as well as on to the invasion.. Women in Bikinis? Sweet!!

Was going into swimming pool and saw Muslim woman entering, head covered, modestly dressed….I wondered if she was going swimming. She did. In the same clothes she entered the facility wearing minus the shoes. I thought this was against the rules (street clothes) and very unsanitary but no one batted an eyelid……I would have preferred for health reasons she wore a burkini.

I won’t be swimming in any body of water were the Muslim supremacists have been anyway,instead of them showing up on a beach wearing that getup,they should just stay in their mosques. The only reason they are doing this,is to slowly advance their bullshit ideology on the West in every aspect of our lives!!!

Now, what does Mohammad say about women with that ‘come hither’ look in slinky tight fitting clothing displaying herself in public like that? I don’t think this particular burkini would pass the halal test.

This swim suit edition, is for dumb kafir who are too politically correct (quelled)to realize that they are encouraging oppressing women, as well as anti western behavior (just another small step toward sharia).

This burkini pic is for the consumption of stupid people. Taqiyya.
Does your local pool have sex segregated swimming yet?

Well those offensive-looking swimming sacks should go a long way to drowning anyone stupid enough to wear one into deep water…
Thanks Sports Illustrated, just get rid of Islam…any way you can!
As for the SI photo of an Islamic alleged female, wearing a tent, in their swimsuit edition – I’m a man, I don’t look at the pictures to look at swimsuits! With this particular photo of an Islamic in a swimming sack, I find the person very unattractive…because all I see is Islam, Sharia Law, headless infidels and Bacha Bazi!
I too believe that Islam should cover itself from head to toe…in about 6 feet of dirt…
It sounds like that fellow from Mali attended the Justin Trudeau School of Talking English…cause that’s where he’s coming from!

In my opinion Sports illustrated has undergone a change in management and/or ownership in the past few years that is decidedly left of center.
Remember the Judge Kavanaugh hearing/lynching last year when that nutbar
Blaise- Ford accused him of sexual impropriety yet couldn’t provide a single shred of proof ? She spoke in a squeaky little girl voice the entire time she was in front of the camera depicting a innocent defenseless little girl persona.
Following that embarrassing fiasco Sports Illustrated gave her an award for being a wonderful person and there is a video on Youtube of her thanking Sports Illustrated in a baritone voice that had almost everyone who listened saying " WTF – where did this voice come from ?"
The second question asked was " Why is Sports Illustrated giving this woman an award for something that has nothing to do with sports ?"
I’ve stopped reading SI and given the direction of the magazine you’ve probably seen the last of the SI Swimsuit issues anyways.

Various cities and towns in Europe have banned the Burkini. Muslim men and women were harassing and insulting women who were not wearing one, and in some cases regular bathing suit clad women were physically attacked.

Also, the Muslims were demanding that men were not on the beach when their woman swam, or that only Muslims could be on the beach.

Ergo, in parts of Europe its banned.

In most Muslim countries women, even tourists, are required to cover their heads and body. Over here the normalisation of full body covering such as a burka or Burkini should be considered inappropriate. Our culture, our rules.

‘When in Rome’ – nice thought, not possible with Islam in any western country.
When is the transexual edition of Sports Illustrated coming out? What’s the matter with them are they transphobic?

Andrew.. Mind your own business.!!

VOTE FOR MAD MAX and the PPC. Our only chance for survival. "

Is what women wear to the beach really something Bernier should be addressing? That seems … intrusive.

ANGELA, See my comment below. Just my opinion but it fits.
commented 2019-05-02 18:59:19 -0400
I absolutely do not understand why they are here and why they insist on bringing their barbaric culture and/or religion here. As Jill & John Ward stated, they need to return to their home countries and stay there! We don’t want them here if they don’t want to live under our laws.
commented 2019-05-02 18:48:07 -0400
JILL AND JOHN WARD commented 43 mins ago.

Jill and John, They are here because the Quran states that Islam will rule the world. What we see now is just the beginning, as soon as there are enough of them, the blood will start to flow. Trudeau, with his open doors agenda, is assisting in the genocide of the white race.
The leader of the Conservative Party believes in immigration also……….
VOTE FOR MAD MAX and the PPC. Our only chance for survival.

islam is the most misogynistic religion on the planet and these outfits are the ultimate display of female subservience to men.
So where is all the feminist outrage over this?
I thought feminism was all about equality for women?

btw with all that material on them , they best not go into deep waters otherwise they might drown!

I don’t think it would be very sanitary if someone were in one of these Canadian cities that releases raw sewage into the water. It would be more cloth to absorb more sewage.

Sheldon Eisler,
thank you.
Well said.
IF canada is SO OFFENSIVE AND NEEDS A COMPLETE OVERHAUL BY THE GLOBES ISLAMISTS AND OTHER FOREIGNERS, THEN WHY ARE THEY HERE- OH YEAH, ALL THE FREEBIES /ENTITLEMENTS THEY GET HERE OFF OF US. now the only thing missing in order to make these unwanted/uninvited invaders completely at home is to turn us into the sh*t holes they made of their own lands and use their religions and culture to take us back to the cave man era just like back home!

Even Muslim men won’t buy the rag

Ban it period we don’t need it or want it-this is the West and we sure as hell don’t need anymore gifts from Islam!!!

The costume and the material that it’s made of doesn’t look practical for the beach or swimming, It would be the same as Trudeau jumping into a swimming pool wearing his East Indian costume. It might be ruined when he got out.
commented 2019-05-02 14:16:55 -0400
So why isn’t her face covered? Just sayin’.
