However I can almost garauntee the US will not make a move to ban Burqas. We are w/o a doubt the most timid and PC nation when it comes to this kind of activism.

What is the relationship between wearing a burqa and carrying a firearm? Last I checked, you can't shoot people with a burqa...."
You compare banning Burqas to forcing Muslims to worshup in secret.
"Actually it is, whether you want to call it a monopoly of power invested in the state or a tyrrany of the majority, the consequences are the same. Might does not make right, so I'm not sure why you are applauding it unless you agree with the decision. "
You compare a democratic nation where the majority rules, and the majority rules Burqas are a threat, to Tyranny.
You say it yourself, that if they ban Burqas then the Muslims are being told to worship in secret, even though they aren't
Yet you say it yourself that banning burqas means they are trying to ban Islam.

Of all the pro burqa wearing posters, are any of you burqa wearing women with a view of their own we could draw insight from?

and that the Majority in a Democracy should bend to the minority.
You say this is Tyranny and that next they will round up Muslims and send them to gas chambers.
I call you out for going extreme, you say you didn't, I quote you, you say I shouldn't use your words to prove what you said. That right so far?

They have to know what we are thinking, it's very rude of them to continue on this path of theirs, so my conclusion is that this is their way of being part of the war on democracies. The more they get their way, the more they become one step closer to their goal.
