Resistance is futile?

So France has finally crossed that line and on April 11 their reprehensible “burqa ban” comes into force. See JURIST roundup here.

CNN posted a story featuring this picture:

With a caption reading “A survey in 2010 found that more than four out of five French people backed a ban on wearing the burqa in public places.”



They do know that’s a woman’s BACK, right? I mean, note the carriage in front of her. She could easily be a hijabi…or, frankly, a nun.

The worst part is that “Violators wearing a face covering may be fined up to 150 euros and/or required to attend citizenship classes.”

Next step, re-education camps?
