Backlash: France has first ‘burka rage’ incident

French Demon, Belphegor

French Woman Likens Burqa to Demon, Belphegor

A 26-year-old Muslim convert was walking through the store in Trignac, near Nantes, in the western Loire-Atlantique region, when she overhead the woman lawyer making “snide remarks about her black burka”. A police officer close to the case said: “The lawyer said she was not happy seeing a fellow shopper wearing a veil and wanted the ban introduced as soon as possible.”

At one point the lawyer, who was out with her daughter, is said to have likened the Muslim woman to Belphegor, a horror demon character well known to French TV viewers. Belphegor is said to haunt the Louvre museum in Paris and frequently covers up his hideous features using a mask.

An argument started before the older woman is said to have ripped the other woman’s veil off. As they came to blows, the lawyer’s daughter joined in.

The French parliament has adopted a formal motion declaring burkas and other forms of Islamic dress to be “an affront to the nation’s values.” Some have accused criminals, from terrorists to shoplifters, of wearing veils to disguise themselves.

A ban, which could be introduced as early as the autumn, would make France the second country after Belgium to outlaw the Islamic veil in public places.  But many have criticised the anti-burka lobby, which includes the French President Nicolas Sarkozy, for stigmatising Muslim housewives.

Many French woman from council estates are forced to wear the veils because of pressure from authoritarian husbands.  The promise of a ban has prompted warnings of racial tensions in a country which is home to some five million Muslims – one of the religion’s largest communities in Europe.

Mr Sarkozy’s cabinet is to examine a draft bill which will impose one-year prison sentences and fines of up to £14,000 on men who force their wives to wear a burka.  Women themselves will face a smaller fine of just over £100 because they are “often victims with no choice in the matter”, says the draft.

The law would create a new offence of “incitement to cover the face for reasons of gender”.  And it would state: “No one may wear in public places clothes that are aimed at hiding the face.”


This one I found amusing because I agree– the burqa does appear almost demonic.  But as the victim of this “burqa backlash” was a muslim CONVERT, we can safely assume this wasn’t about “racism”, but about culture.  And at CCHQ we don’t apologize for our culturalism.  Here, Western culture is cherished, promoted, and protected.  We are proud culturalists, not racists.  Tolerance for the intolerable isn’t something we agreed upon when we naively turned a blind eye to the Left’s multicultural experiment.  I don’t approve of this woman’s methods and she should be held accountable under the law, but her disgust for the burqa I find entirely empathetic, and most importantly of all– ACCEPTABLE.  Sadly, this incident is just the beginning.  As long as the French people believe they are being ignored by the political elites, this is how they will respond.  And as the years and decades go by, it will escalate.  That is not an endorsement, it is a dire warning.
