UN Demanding France Lift Burqa Ban, But That’s Not All They’re Calling For.

Pretty sure France is a sovereign nation and can make its own laws.

The United Nations Human Rights Committee has released a ruling this week on France’s ban on wearing full-face veils — known as niqabs — in public as a violation of human rights and stated the country should be held accountable for their actions by compensating women who were convicted for breaking the law.

France originally implemented it’s “burqa ban” back in 2010, which stated that “no one may, in a public space, wear any article of clothing intended to conceal the face.”

Two women who were convicted for violating the ban in 2012 complained, leading to the review by a U.N. panel which monitors countries’ compliance with the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

The 18-person committee found that France failed to make the case for their burqa ban and gave the country 180 days to review the legislation and return with a solution. “The State has not demonstrated how the full veil presents a threat in itself for public security to justify this absolute ban,” the U.N.’s decision read.

The panel further wrote that “the ban, rather than protecting fully veiled women, could have the opposite effect of confining them to their homes, impeding their access to public services and marginalizing them.”

The U.N. stated in a press release that “anyone can bring an alleged violation of human rights to the attention of the United Nations committees tasked with monitoring the realization of various human rights treaties, and thousands of people around the world do so every year.”

It’s important to note that the recommendations that were made by this committee are not legally binding.

France isn’t the only country that’s banned niqabs. Algeria just instituted a ban on public sector employees sporting the garment while they are at work. Algeria, by the way, is a Muslim-majority country.

According to local news sources, there aren’t that many women in Algeria who actually wear the niqab, so not many folks are likely to be impacted by the decision. It’s also been stated that the reason for the ban is to provide identification of public servants.

Bill O’Reilly Brilliantly Explains Why 2020 Election Doesn’t Make Much Sense (Video)

You probably won’t find a better summarization.

Bill O’Reilly may not be a perfect person. But that is to be expected, considering he’s human. That being said, the man is very intelligent and well-informed (and his Killing series is just plain awesome). On Monday, Bill explained why the 2020 presidential election seems so funky to so many millions of Americans. Did you know, as O’Reilly points out, that no president in 150 years has lost a second term when they nabbed more votes than they did the first time around? Trump earned over 10 million more votes in 2020 than he did in 2016, but somehow he’s the one who can’t keep up with the trend – despite the massive rallies, both scheduled and impromptu, all over the nation??

There’s zero chance Joe Biden outperformed President Trump to the tune of 80 million total votes. Come on, man! The GOP needs to get to the bottom of this or risk going extinct.

GOP Senator Says Biden’s Pick for OMB, Neera Tanden, Has ‘Zero Chance of Being Confirmed’

Buh bye.

It is absolutely imperative that Republicans retain control of the Senate. Both upper chamber races in Georgia have the ability to make or break the country. Loeffler and Perdue must win. If they don’t, Democrats will have the House, Senate, and, possibly, the Executive Branch. If that happens, things will change fast – and not in a good way. From The Daily Wire: On Monday, former Vice President Joe Biden announced he had selected Neera Tanden, the president of The Center for American Progress and a close friend of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as his choice to head the White House Office of Management and Budget, eliciting criticism from both sides of the political aisle. Sen. John Cornyn, (R-TX) said Tanden “stands zero chance of being confirmed.” […] Tandem has also come under fire for her handling of sexual harassment claims at the Center for American Progress. Buzzfeed News reported in 2018 that two days after they had revealed allegations of sexual harassment and retaliation at the Center for American Progress, where Tanden served as president, Tanden “met with staff to restore confidence in the organization’s ability to handle the issue and ensure that employees feel safe. But during the meeting Wednesday afternoon, Tanden named the anonymous victim at the center that story — a revelation that a CAP spokesperson said was unintentional — and what began as a tense meeting became what three staffers in the room described as a textbook example of the organization’s failures to appropriately handle sexual harassment cases.” Check out some of these tweets… https://twitter.com/GarrettVentry/status/1333250823531470855?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1333250823531470855%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fso-much-for-unity-tom-cotton-rips-bidens-picks-to-staff-administration https://twitter.com/neeratanden/status/802605607081615360?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E802605607081615360%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fso-much-for-unity-tom-cotton-rips-bidens-picks-to-staff-administration https://twitter.com/neeratanden/status/959471674528878593?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E959471674528878593%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fso-much-for-unity-tom-cotton-rips-bidens-picks-to-staff-administration
