Burkini Ban : French Farce

by duncanr

the french motto ‘Liberté, égalité, fraternité‘ seems rather hollow given some French mayors have banned women from wearing the ‘burkini’ swimming costume on the beach

and while the french prime minister sees the burkini as ‘enslaving’ women – apparently because he thinks the decision to wear the burkini is forced on a woman by her male partner rather than her own choice, he sees nothing ironic in another set of men ordering her not to wear it

as Mitch Benn says on Twitter . . . The case that one should not dictate what women can & can’t wear is perhaps not best made by dictating what women can & can’t wear

Trump : ISIS Recruiting Sergeant

by duncanr

donald-trump_reuters_380-300x225Donald Trump is proposing the USA ban ALL muslims from entering the USA, whether they be tourists, asylum seekers, or immigrants until the US figures out why so many Muslims dislike the US –

what next, one wonders – intern all muslim american citizens ?

by portraying a bunch of terrorists as being representative of all followers of Islam (carefully ignoring the fact that ISIS have killed and displaced more muslims than christians and the ground forces fighting ISIS in Iraq and Syria are muslims, not christians) and sowing fear and mistrust of all muslims, Trump is doing exactly what ISIS hopes to achieve** – he is the best recruiting sergeant they have!
