Corsica Erupts Over the Burkini Ban

A few days ago I wrote about a ban of the Muslim swimwear known as the Burkini in Cannes France. You may wish to review it here before continuing to the article below. You may link to it here.

Well, it’s spreading and so is the oh so predictable violence as the Clarion Project is now reporting:

Clash in Corsica

Clash in Corsica

On Sunday August 14, 2016, Bernard Cazeneuve, French Interior Minister, issued the following statement after a violent clash between locals and Muslim immigrants on the island of Corsica:

“A violent confrontation, the circumstances and motives of which will be determined by a police investigation, erupted on Saturday evening in Sisco, Upper Corsica, between local residents and a group of around ten out-of-towners. The four people injured, including a pregnant woman, were evacuated to the hospital in Bastia. Their injuries are not life-threatening. Three vehicles were set on fire causing major disruption of traffic and a brush fire was rapidly brought under control.” read more

Cannes – Site of the Film Festival, Bans Islam Swimwear

by: the Common Constitutionalist

When one hears of Cannes, it may conjure up images of a magical place in the south of France on the French Riviera – a place where the beautiful go. It is also world renowned for its annual film festival – where liberals go to see and be seen (mostly be seen) – a place where a large slovenly socialist millionaire is hailed regularly as a conquering hero – one Michael Moore.

But, the disheveled Moore is the exception at the film festival. New York Magazine described  the scene last May, “as some of the country’s best-dressed celebrities headed to the Cannes Film Festival for another round of cocktails and photographs. Take beautiful and famous people, add a liberal sprinkling of diamonds, and put them on yachts in the French Riviera and you get an event that’s extremely fun to look at.”

And naturally 99.999 percent of the “beautiful” people who show up each year are flaming leftists – leftists who, at endless cocktail parties, discuss their latest cause célèbre, like transgender rights, the oppression of the Palestinian people or just any old Muslim cause.

So I wonder how they will react when the scantily clad “beautiful” bikini set take to the beaches at Cannes during the next festival only to see, or not see, any Muslim women sporting a Burkini. read more
