The Real Reason for islamic Public Displays of Dress and Praying

Reader comment on item: The SPLC Finds Niqabs and Kippahs Equally Threatening

Submitted by Domenic Pepe, Nov 6, 2016 at 10:53

The real reason for islamic public displays of dress and praying is to intimidate others. In the West one would call this "wearing religion on the sleeve." But it is much more than that for islam/muslims. For they wish to intimidate others by their ubiquitous displays of their "holiness" and mob behavior. In other words islam/muslims like to put their psychopathological religiosity in others' faces. In fact, I find it quite repulsive when islamic/muslim mobs engage in their mass public praying rituals whereby they all simultaneously kneel down and bend their heads to the ground and lift their posteriors to allah. I would think that this is truly blasphemy.

But no. When it comes to islam/muslims applying techniques in order to intimidate others, anything goes. In regards to hiding one's face and head in a bag, let us be honest: the person, the society, culture, religion, cult that approves and practices such behavior is sick, very sick. However, islam/muslims do not regard their behavior as outrageous and psychopathological because that is precisely what they intend ... to intimidate ... to induce fear in others. Psychopathic public behavior of any kind does intimidate and invokes fear in otherwise normal people. And that is one of the techniques that islam/muslims use to gain power and influence over others.

The German Nazis used this technique with their swastika ... a symbol to intimidate and elicit fear to gain power and influence over others. The burka and niqab and public mob prostrations are swasikas for islam/muslims. If America and the West cannot see islam for the insideous viral enemy of freedom that it is, then all will be lost. Islam has been for 1400 years an aggressive scourge on all mankind. It is time for America and the West, along with China, India, and Russia to do something about it.

So long as there is not intimidation or security threats, what people wear is their own business.
