Teaching Kids to Love the Burqa

• Views: 1,539

A school in Connecticut is having its students dress in burqas, the symbols of radical Islam’s brutal suppression of women, so that they can understand discrimination.

No, silly, not the Islamic discrimination against women that forces them into these repressive garments. The “discrimination” of evil American high school kids, who are intolerant of this symbol of extremist intolerance.

Behind Burqa, Student Gets An Education In Bigotry. (Hat tip: Bubbaman.)

It’s hard to imagine a more inverted moral lesson. They’re so focused on teaching these kids “tolerance,” they don’t even see the blatant misogyny of the burqa.

COLCHESTER — Caitlin Dean was raised not to discriminate against others because of their race or religion. But as a white suburban teen of Italian and Irish descent, she often wondered what it would be like to be the target of such abuse.

She found out “behind the burqa.”

The 15-year-old freshman volunteered with a few other students to wear traditional Muslim clothing to school for an entire day in February after a Middle Eastern Studies teacher at Bacon Academy announced that she was looking for students to promote her class by wearing the garb. Caitlin covered her slender frame and short brown hair with a periwinkle burqa, which concealed her face.

The hateful and abusive comments she endured that day horrified teachers, the teen and many of her classmates. The remarks underscored a persistent animosity toward American Muslims that is driven largely by the terrorist attacks of 9/11 and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. But they also opened up an important dialogue that could help teenagers in Colchester and across the state view the Muslim culture differently.

“Hey, we rape your women!” one upperclassman said as he passed Caitlin in the hallway. “I hope all of your people die,” another sniped.

“You’re probably going to kill us all” and “Why do they let people like this in the country?” were other remarks she heard on Feb. 1.

Caitlin’s observations that day did not surprise those who work for the Connecticut chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which arrived in the state about three years ago in response to hate crimes and prejudice against Muslims.

Some might say that CAIR arrived in the state to spread Wahhabi and Muslim Brotherhood propaganda—just like this.
