I’d like you to pause a moment or three and think about this. Those masks that so many of us are wearing all the time we’re away from home? They’re our new niqabs! And yeah, I’m betting there’s a bunch of old, Muslim men laughing their asses off over it.
There’s a lot of similarity between our masks and niqabs. Aside from the fact that both cover the lower half or more of one’s face, the demand to wear them is quite similar. Both PPE and niqabs are required for the protection of others, not of the ones wearing them. The former to protect against the spread of COVID-19 and the latter to ward against triggering “uncontrollable” lust in Muslim males.
The nature of the proscription against bare faces and the “moral” component applied to it is the first thing you should think about.
And, of course, like any other mandatory clothing item, designers of both our and the Muslims’ niqab try to make them interesting and attractive, i.e., commercially viable. True, with at least 1400 years more experience, the Muslims are better at it than the West is so far. But, we’ll catch up with them because haram is haram and people want attractive clothing.
But… it might be that we don’t limit ourselves to just our new niqab. There’s plenty of other face coverings that fit the sentiment behind our masks.
Now True; a lot of the non-niqab veils won’t meet the standards of those demanding that we stay masked in what seems to be perpetuity – variants of the coronavirus are not going away people! – but they could be incorporated into designs or worn as an adjunct to our mandated PPE.
In all truth, what I’m expecting is that the continuance of mask mandates – be they through direct government fiat or social pressure – is a two-layered approach, with some non-protective, decorative layer of masking over a “nude” or subtly shaded PPE mask.
And, oh yeah; “nude” or “flesh-toned” PPE masks would bring their own special breed of crap from the Woke Crowd and what they pander to- and enable.
Then, this isn’t rocket science and should be easily expected. Form follows function and the function of both our masks and those of the Muslims and the intended function of both is to protect others from the dangers intrinsic to- or associated with the wearers’ faces. Both are symbols of compliance with authoritarian rule, be of the government, priesthood, or the mob of fearful and faithful, who haven’t moved that far from pitchforks and torches.
Yes, this is definitely something to think about. Our new niqabs, striking and beautiful or not, are a sign that we’re fundamentally moving in the same direction that the Muslims did.
Given what Justice Barrett had to go through and given how the Dems always side with Omar, this is a real, existential problem. Anytime some group side inside America’s borders against Christian for being Christians and side with Muslims for being Muslims, there’s a huge and dangerous question that the People need to find a final solution for.
And sorry, not sorry; the Dems can’t really reverse this. Christian values are compatible with America, whereas a vast amount of the Muslim values – of the modern era at least – are utterly incompatible. Nor could it be any other way, despite the Left’s war to change things – because America is a Judeo-Christian nation in practice if not by law.

Its Eid al-Kafir! In Other Words It’s National Bacon Day
That’s right, My Fellow Americans; it’s Eid al-Kafir, the festival of infidels, National Bacon Day – not to be confused with International Bacon Day, which is on the first Monday of September in the US. And, on this day, we come together to celebrate our not being Muslims…with bacon!
Islam – The Assault Religion
Well, we’ve suffered through yet another Muslim terrorist attack here in NYC. And, yet again, it wasn’t because of assault weapons or assault vehicles. It was because of an assault religion, Islam.
Sadly, despite the various Liberal and Progressive claims to the contrary, Islam is either the root cause or a significant factor in all of these terrorist attacks. Indeed, the Civilized World would be wiser to call then Jihad Attacks as opposed to just terrorism. Terrorism, after all, simply defines methodology without addressing the real goals of the attack.
While the Usbek immigrant, Sayfullo Saipov could both easily and accurately be described as a disaffected loser, it was Islam that provided with with a “way out” of his situation. Islam’s specific treatment of Jihadis and Martyrdom makes this so and is the force that “triggers” Muslim losers to resort to terrorist attacks upon the peoples of the West.
