Burka Rage!

Wow! This is much less productive than that annual Filene’s Basement “Running of the Brides” sale  every year that results in a hoedown or two between the ladies (and unfortunately this year several tramplings) –

Veil Ripped off in French ‘Burka Rage’

The first known case of “Burka rage” has erupted in France where a furious female lawyer ripped the veil from a Muslim woman in a clothing store in the town of Trignac. The lawyer made “snide remarks” about the other shopper’s burka and said she couldn’t wait until France enacted a burka ban now winding through the legislature, according to cops. The attorney compared burka-wearers to the fictional French horror demon Belphegor, who haunts the Louvre and wears a black face mask to hide his hideous features. Suddenly, the women were scuffling, and the veil ripped off, reports the Telegraph.

The store owners broke up the pair, and they were hauled in by cops. The Muslim woman has accused the lawyer of racial and religious assault, and the attorney has accused her fighting partner of assault. The veil ban measure before the French legislature declares burkas and other forms of Islamic dress to be “an affront to the nation’s values.” Such a ban has already been enacted in Belgium. Critics say the bill unfairly targets women, who are often ordered to wear the veil by their husbands.

Damn! Ripping off her veil?

After checking out our new Miss USA Rima Fakih, it might just be worthwhile to cop a seat on the beach in the French Riviera…

And wait for a Bikini-Burkini fight!

Burkini Wars…

I should probably do a poll, and add one of those nifty widgets here – but the Burkini-Bikini War which has roiled France has now expanded to England and Italy!

OK, I figured the Poll Thingie out – Ladies Only!

Resulting in this article by Rachel Marsden in the UK Times – The Italians have banned the ridiculous burkini from public pools. Good for them

Now, Rachel is a conservative commentator who is CEO of GrandCentralPolitical.com a job site for politicos – seen here leaving a Canadian Courtroom after being granted a “Conditional Discharge” for harassing a Vancouver radio talk show host…

Getting fired by Faux News, and selling her ex-boyfriends clothes in an auction…

Apparently believes this is fashionable evening wear –

Hmmmmm… Indeed.

OK – Just for review for those who missed the subtle differences between a Burkini and a Bikini –

So – here’s the question, to the ladies…

Would you rather be seen at the beach in a bikini, or burkini…

Or caught dead dressed like Rachel Marsden?

“Burkini”??????

An update to this post is available under Burkini Wars

Apparently the latest salvo in the culture war in France is Moslem women wearing “Burkinis” ….

Now – it’s common in France for women to go topless at the beaches – so apparently the complaint, is Moslem women are…

Wearing too much!

Now, BTx3 enjoys the sight of a finely shaped woman in a swimsuit as well as the next guy – and admittedly the Burkini leaves a lot to the imagination…

But, at the same time you have to respect someone else’s beliefs.

Apparently in France, with the first salvo being an order to ban head scarves in 2004s – a woman with clothes on…

Just isn’t French!

French Muslim woman wearing ‘burkini’ banned from Paris swimming pool

France’s struggle with Islamic dress has moved into the swimming pool after a 35-year-old woman was banned from bathing in her “burkini”, a head-to-toe swimsuit.

The woman, identified only as Carole, was making her third outing in a burkini to the town pool at Emerainville, on the eastern outskirts of Paris, when the chief lifeguard ordered her to leave. Read the rest of this entry »
