    Has the world got more racist? Johnson hates burquas and Trump has been in trouble for some time..

    What is going on with our leaders?

    Are BJ and Trump Racist? Do bears defecate amongst trees?

    Brave women all over the middle-east choose to wear them to show their opposition to Johnson.

    Really? I thought they wore them because either they were repressed and bullied by men or for religious reasons.

    Brave anti-Trump women wear pink cat hats
    Brave anti-Johnson women wear burqas. I look forward to thousands of privileged white women adopting the burqa in protest until the end of the Johnson premiership.

    Seems politicians cannot win regardless of approach. A few months ago many politicians in all parties wanted to ban the burqa, now its celebrated as their right. There is no comparison between johnson pontificating and Trump slagging everyone off, often without caring who or what they are/represent.

    If you hate the burqa, you are a racist. See OP for details.

    I think it was the niqab that Boris hates. letter box and all that.
    But as it has been pointed by out easyasbac, Leavers are not against wider multiculturalism.

    Boris defended the right of women to wear burkas. Emily Thornberry (Lady Nugee) said she would ban them.
    Get your facts right.

    Trump is an odious racist. But we need to continue to trade with our largest trading partner, despite him.

    If BJ hates the niqab then I'm with him, and with anybody else who feels the same.

    I hate anything that prevents equality of opportunity, or that demeans or denigrates any section of society, for no rational reason.

    Expecting females to cover themselves so as to avoid attracting men is as bizarre, in the 21st century, as refusing to let them drive, or vote, or go to school. It's as bizarre as forbidding priests to be married. It's as bizarre as forcing left-handed children to write with their right hand. It's as bizarre as burning senile old ladies as witches.

    These ideas are relics of past stupidity, ignorance and discrimination which we should now have put firmly behind us.

    Yes, they are racist.


    Trump in a more sinister way than Johnson's stupid buffoonish way.

    The burka is banned in France, Belgium, Austria, Denmark, Latvia, Bulgaria, the Netherlands, China, Morocco, Tunisia, Sri Lanka and several other countries. However, Boris didn't hate it - it was the niqab that he thought looked like a postbox - and even then he defended the right of women to wear what they want.

    I think it is Congress that deals with matters of International Trade, not the President. But Trump does like to be seen signing important documents with his big black crayons

    It's interesting that you state that. I hear it and see it often as I wander through the net, but I have never yet managed to find a specific quote by him that would indicate that he would discriminate against someone simply because of their race or skin-colour.

    The same goes, actually, for Boris Johnson. But I'm prepared to be proven wrong.

    It's an easy label to apply against people with whom one disagrees, of course.
