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.

Published

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.

What a joke!

Liberals can be summed up with one word: triggered. Everything annoys them to no end, to the point where they feel they need to get violent. We see it happen on nearly a daily basis. Check out what went down when a teenage boy decided to wear a MAGA hat in our nation’s capitol. It didn’t go over well with a random future Joe Biden voter. WATCH: https://twitter.com/charlienicole/status/1279905108289941505?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1279905108289941505%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fhorrible-trump-supporters-in-dc-accosted-and-harassed-by-blm-thug-who-stole-their-maga-hats-video%2F Criminals seemingly don’t have as bad a reputation as police officers. Without question, ex-cop Derek Chauvin was in the wrong when he placed his knee on George Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes. But why are all officers being blamed for one bad apple? It’s not right. Some cops are fed-up. From Miami Herald: The 10 members of the Hallandale Beach Police Department’s SWAT team have stepped down from their roles, citing among other grievances anger over the city’s police chief kneeling with protesters earlier this week, a memo the officers signed read. They will remain with the police department. On Friday morning, Hallandale Beach received a memo from the members of the SWAT team with a list of grievances, Hallandale Beach City Manager Greg Chavarria said. Police Chief Sonia Quiñones has set a meeting with the 10 officers on Monday to hear their concerns, collect their equipment and thank them for their service. Let’s hear your thoughts in the comment section…

Report: President Trump to Refile Paperwork This Week That Will Rescind DACA Program

A big move…

Like most things nowadays, DACA has long divided conservatives and liberals. On Monday, it was reported that President Trump is set to make a big move later in the week. Here’s the scoop, via The Hill: President Trump is expected to refile paperwork this week to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that offers protections for thousands of young immigrants, according to multiple people familiar with the planning. Trump was initially expected to move to once again rescind the Obama-era program last week, but it was pushed back, according to one source. The exact timing remains in flux, but Trump is now expected to file the paperwork this week. White House chief of staff Mark Meadows hinted in an interview with Fox News earlier Monday that the president was readying executive action on immigration issues, though he did not offer specifics. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts hasn’t been the conservative stalwart Republicans had expected when first nominated by President George W. Bush. Anything but, really. After siding with his liberals peers yet again, GOP Senator Tom Cotton (AR) is telling Roberts he should step aside.
