French Parliament Condemns Full Islamic Face Veil

I find this wrong on so many levels.
It’s incredible what apparently can be hidden behind the smokescreen of words.
This is not about the oppression of women, for security reasons or to combat fraud; it will do little but cause offence and outrage to French Muslims (at the very least) and give those sections of society who harbour anti-Muslim sentiment the message that, yes, Muslims are definitely beneath them in every way.

If Muslim women want to cease wearing their head and face coverings and perhaps change the tenets of their own religion, only they can initiate this change.

There is nothing behind the legislation in Belgium and France other than the white governments showing that they are the alpha males and they can enforce their will upon each and every upstart threat with impugnity.
And even if they wheel out public concerns about preventing racist attacks on the obviously Muslim population or about security concerns regarding facial concealment, it’s all still a smokescreen.

A thick, bitter and acrid smokescreen.

I play bass, I cook, I look out the window. Sometimes I prefer wondering what's out there to going out and looking. But not all the time. I only recently learned that leaving two spaces after a full stop is obsolete.
