Our Dutch correspondent H. Numan sends this exposition on the recently-enacted burka ban and related matters in The Netherlands.
We have a burka ban — not
by H. Numan
The Dutch government passed a law banning burkas and niqabs in the public space. No, that is not correct. In some public spaces. Not in all. As you can expect, the progressive left and mohammedans are up in arms. The latter for the moment in arms attached to your body. Don’t worry, a burka ban is worthy of a suicide attack. Mohammedans aren’t that broad-minded. Anything that conflicts with the dawah must be eradicated. With blood, preferably.
From the 1st of August women can no longer practice their freedom of religion in public in The Netherlands. They are discriminated against by the evil Dutch. The law has been changed, so that the wearing of burkas and niqabs in (a few) public places is forbidden. The fine is €350 for virtuous women who cover their modesty. From now on, women are expected to dress like harlots as Dutch women ordinarily do. This, of course, is not my viewpoint, rather the mohammedan one. And that of the progressive left.
It’s a silly law. Why? First of all, not that many women dress in tents. According to different sources, about 300-1200 in total. Second and far more important: nobody is going to enforce it. Comrade Femke Halsema, who heads as burkamaster the People’s Republic of Amsterdam, said it will under no circumstances be enforced in her city. For those of you who don’t know: Amsterdam is now effectively a communist commune. During the last elections Green Left (successors of the communist party) took control of the city.
Green Left is what we call in Thailand a watermelon. Dark green on the outside, bright red on the inside. I’ve checked: the only things they changed were the wordings, images and the logo. The party structure itself would be approved by Joseph Stalin himself. That did not change. They fight then and now for a classless society in which the proletariat rules. Class struggle is out, fighting for the environment is in. You can fight your class struggle just as well by pretending to protect the environment.
Comrade Femke is a ‘do as I say, not as I do’ type of leader. She had a hobby: old-timers. She proudly owned and drove an old Mercedes 200 D. I’d be hard pressed to say which pollutes more: a Trabant from East Germany or comrade Femke’s old rust barrel. Given its age, I assume the latter. Nothing wrong with old-timers, but if you are the chairwomen of the party that wants to be environmentally correct, not a good choice. It’s like the chairman of the WWF being an avid hunter. Oops. That was exactly what Prince Bernard von Lippe-Biesterfeld (husband of queen Juliana) did.
Comrade Femke also has children. Two, a boy and a girl. They were send to a ‘black’ school. We don’t have black schools, but for us a black school is a school where the majority of children have an ethnic background. They are also very bad schools. Not the best teachers, huge classes, lots of absentees, etc. So, as soon as the media were finished with the photo ops showing dear comrade mum bringing her kids to the politically correct school, Femke hurried to change them to a 100% ‘white’ school. That’s a school with a high price tag to keep the undesirables out. Lots of ‘blacks’ in those schools: the son of the ambassador for Nigeria, for example. Again, very hypocritical. But then, so is socialism in general. Comrade Femke puts a lot of effort getting ‘white’ children forcibly assigned to ‘black’ schools. “For community cohesion.”
