Tensions Mounting in Europe

This is the second European community we’ve seen that has banned burkinis.

A village mayor in Corsica has banned full-body swimsuits known as “burkinis” after a beach brawl between families of North African descent and local youths.

The ban was imposed at a special council session on Sunday in Sisco amid tensions over the brawl, in which five people were hurt.

Authorities in Cannes and Villeneuve-Loubet, on the French Riviera, also banned Islamic burkinis this month.

Witnesses say hatchets and harpoons were used in the Sisco beach brawl.

The five injured on Saturday were later discharged from hospital, but tensions are simmering in the area.

Tension has grown this summer between local communities and Muslims of North African origin in the south of France, especially following the massacre of 85 people by a lorry driver on the seafront at Nice on 14 July.

As an American, I find such a ban to be inconsistent with a free society. The fact that the women wear burkinis is simply a visible representation of an ideology that is inconsistent with Western civilization. The problem is that Europe is continuing to allow vast swaths of people to immigrate into their countries who intend to import their own oppressive ideology instead of assimilating into the culture of their new home countries.

    Dumb local government decision.

    It is a function of the bigger problem of unchecked immigration of a destructive ideology.

    Are LEO’s going to cite on basis of not showing enough skin?
