Burkas & Buffoons: Boris Johnson, Baroness Warsi and the War on White


Despite Baroness Warsi's self-proclaimed feminism, she hasn't been loudly expressing disgust about the behaviour of Muslim men in her natal county of Yorkshire. White girls in Rotherham have suffered far worse things from Muslim men than any burqa-clad Muslim woman has suffered from White "Islamophobes." And I'm puzzled that any feminist could defend garments like the burqa and niqab. They're clear symbols of male supremacism and patriarchal control, as you can see in the very illiberal and anti-feminist nations where they are most often worn: Saudi Arabia and Afghanistan, for example. These garments are not expressions of female choice, as Muslim apologists and White liberals pretend, but of male intimidation and what Marxists would call "false consciousness."
