This is a positive move towards making illegal one of the most overt manifestations of militant Islam in France. As we all know, many women wear such coverings owing to their fanatical commitment to Islamism, whereas those who are compelled to wear such garb by their brutish menfolk will now find that the law comes to their aid by imposing a suitable punishment upon the latter. It seems fitting to me that the French are seeking to impose the rather modest penalties of a 150 euro fine for any woman caught breaking the proposed law, whereas any Muslim husband compelling his wife to wear a burqa can look forward to a 30,000 euro fine and one-year gaol term. Personally, I’d make such crimes punishable by state sequestration and liquidation of all familial assets followed by the deportation of all members of the family concerned.
Naturally, in its radio reporting of this positive move the BBC has exhibited a somewhat muted and crestfallen mood, and I fully expect that in the BBC’s future references to the ersatz conception of British nationality that it espouses it will feature the championing of the ‘right’ to wear Islamo-fascist uniform as a defining trait of contemporary ‘Britishness’ (I’m already feeling sick just contemplating that hoity-toity patronising English hater Sarah Montague enunciating this on the Today Programme).
Getting rid of these most overt displays of Islamist allegiance is a symbolic first step, but only once the French have outlawed the proselytisation of Islam and the immigration of Muslims will the liberty of French citizens and their way of life be guaranteed. Tomorrow is Bastille Day, so we shall see how opponents of this measure respond.
