The Muslim hijab is a symbol of oppression. Millions of girls are forced to wear it in Muslim countries.

I don't support symbols of oppression whether it be Hijab or the Confederate Flag.

Must be why Hutterites and Mennonites women wear scarfs. Oh no cannot be as they are both Christian sects.

Or perhaps cultural from areas that are also predominately Muslim.

Have you ever read the TOS right here on City-Data?

We are not allowed 'personal attacks' against other posters. Are you OK with C-D limiting your first amendment rights?

You can believe that people who are apostates from Islam, or who refuse to recognize Allah, should be killed. But you can't go and kill them.


Speech and thought - freedom
Actions - limited.
False. Many people believe that we can say anything you want, calling it freedom of speech, but we can't. That is not correct. Example: CD mods have the right to delete any post they want, as can any website. We don't have freedom of speech here, although we do have a lot more leeway than most websites (thanks mods). The police have arrested people many times for a crime they now call "making terroristic threats," including teenagers. No one is allowed to threaten the president. So no, we aren't allowed to say anything we want, or even most anything we want, especially after 9/11 happened.

The hijab is just another way that Muslim men control their women. If they don't like hearing the criticism, either grow thicker skin or get out of the kitchen.

There was no personal attack. CD can do what they want. Loretta Lynch can't...she works for me and can't tell me what not to say or take my guns from me.
