Switzerland’s Populist Lawmakers Are About To Ban The Burqa


Burqas are nothing more than a slap in the face to Western, civilized culture.

And now, thanks to Switzerland’s right-wing populist lawmakers, one of the greatest non-European Union controlled countries could eventually be banning the Muslim burqa.

AFP reports:

Switzerland’s lower house on Tuesday narrowly approved a draft bill on a nationwide burqa ban, the ATS news agency reported, but the measure remains far from coming into force.

The proposal by lawmaker Walter Wobmann of the populist right-wing Swiss Peoples Party (SVP) won 88 votes, with 87 against.

Wobmann’s bill was nearly identical to a measure approved in a 2013 referendum in the Italian-speaking canton of Ticino banning the full-face Islamic veil.

The Ticino ban came into force on July 1, and calls for fines ranging between 100 Swiss francs ($100, 92 euros) to 10,000 Swiss francs.

Would America ever do this?
