It's rather draconian to ASSUME that there's a security risk here.





And it's presumptuous to assume she was removed because of what she was wearing. There's no evidence of that as of yet

Yet on ATS, she's already guilty despite the lack of evidence.



Not your doing of course.

If a women walks past a msoque wearing a bikini, why should that women be made to cover up because it makes fellow citizen feels uncomfortable?

What about the right of those women to cover themselves?


A survey conducted in France in May 2003 found that 77 percent of girls wearing the hijab said they did so because of physical threats from Islamist groups.

This person, who ever they are, is definitely guilty of wearing a burqa which hides the identity of the person wearing the burqa, and so should not be tolerated, at least not in Western nations.

It is in fact a major security threat. A great many things can be hidden behind that monstrous costume. People should not be allowed to go around in public wearing masks. If you can't show your face, then stay home, or better yet, go back to the screwed up country you came from, because such beliefs are the very reason that country is so screwed up. We don't need more crazy around these parts, we are already fully stocked up.

There is nothing modest about this horrible dress. "Like, oh my god, I'm so gorgeous I must completely cover myself, or all the men will strip me naked in their minds." Not, get over yourself.

Or, "I can't be bothered to make myself presentable in public so I will cover myself from head to toe." Learn some hygiene.

Don't walk around naked, or covered from head to toe, both are not acceptable. If you can't properly dress yourself, the rest of us shouldn't have to put up with your failures as a human being.

They can easily screen the burqa before allowing her in with a few TSA agents. Problem solved. You can also hide a lot of things with a large jacket, are we to ban jackets?

Sure, religious freedom in America only applies to you if you're a White, Christian male.

Which costs time, which takes money.

If the burqa wearing person gives advance notice, and pays the costs of this special screening so that person can walk around anonymous, maybe, but really it still shouldn't be allowed.

Maybe if they wore a large photo ID that shows what they actually look like and who they are, then it should be allowed.

There is not reason to accept this hostile form of dress.

Religious freedom exists for everyone in the U.S., which also means that you can't force your religious beliefs on others.

When one persons religious beliefs interferes with community standards, then they shouldn't be allowed.

If you worship the god Dionysus, doesn't mean you should be able to walk around naked with a bunch of other people getting drunk on wine, having orgies in pubic, and acting foolish.

Being a Muslim doesn't mean you can walk around wearing a mask in an outfit that allows you to easily hide a bomb or other weaponry.

Your religious beliefs do not give you the right to abuse me or my family. That isn't what freedom of religion is about.

All security costs time and money no matter what and isnt limited to burqa screening.

You can hide bombs in your underwear as demonstrated by the underwear bomber. You should not be allowed to wear your underdear and walk with no bottoms to the next presidents meeting.

Fully agree, no one should be wearing c4 in any shape or form.

People who come to an event expecting to be able to wear a mask are in fact more of a security problem, cost more money, and essentially are demanding all kinds of special privileges. Save it for Halloween.

Its not a mask, it is a burqa and it is not meant to be worn on haloween. Also fat people can wear bigger jackets and therfore put bigger bombs in their jackets so we should ban fat people too.

How do you know if the cross they are wearing is not made of C4 unless you ban all the Christians from entering.

, call it what you want, in my culture, it is a mask.

Now you are trying to make fun of fat people? It the coat fits properly, it doesn't allow for hiding a bomb. If someone comes to an event with an excessively baggy coat, then they should be expected to take off such coat, or be searched, or just turned away.

But that costs time and money like you said. If they searched the burqa and didnt find anything wrong with it, she should not have been denied entry.



It the coat fits properly


What about the underwear bombers, I think they should not allow people who wear underwear to the events as well. It is a clear security risk.

Now you are just being ridiculous.

Like all Christians run around with crosses large enough to make an effective C4 bomb.

They should always have bomb sniffing dogs IMO, and too bad if your religion objects. Stop pushing your beliefs on us.

Probably should also limit the size of bling.

You sound like a cheerleader for the current police state in the U.S.

You think it's acceptable now?

What other invasions of privacy do you support? Wiretapping? TSA searches? Cops tasering the # out of people for no reason?
