Burqas Across Bavaria






Thanks to Vigilant Freedom:


This week Germans awoke to find many of their most famous statutes cloaked in Burkas and headscarfs, in a well coordinated move carried out by a group calling itself an, "Anonymous group for democratic and free thinking." The group carried out the simultaneous cover up of 14 statues in 7 cities across the country, followed by a press release on protecting freedom of speech and secular democratic societies, which read in part:

"In a religious system that promotes totalitarian ideas and demands submission of individuals, such an achievement can easily get under pressure. Therefore, there should be a public discussion on whether the European vocabulary and the vocabulary of certain religious systems share a common basis. For instance, the "house of peace" and the "house of war" have a different meaning in Islam and in our understanding. According to the Islamic view, the "house of peace" can only exist where Islam reigns."

It really is a great idea. There's a statue of the Little Mermaid (in Denmark) which was enshrouded in a burqa a few years back, so this isn't the first time this has been done. But the magnitude of this display is on a whole 'nuther level.

That is bitter irony. Much of Western Civilization is upside-down.
