Following an announcement by a group to hold a second “burkini” protest at a pool in the French city of Grenoble, counter-protesters have called on locals to swim in the pool wearing nothing at all. Last Sunday, a group of around a dozen women belonging to the Alliance Citoyenne (Citizens’ Alliance) protested at a pool that had banned the wearing of the Islamic sharia-compliant swimwear, (Snip group has announced another protest to take place on Sunday, but this time others on social media have suggested bathers take off all of their clothes and bathe naked in counter-protest.

Comments:

This could get ugly! Seniors in France can be found on the most popular nude beaches…they love baring all to the sun and water….

"Unpleasant" optics notwithstanding, it is reassuring to see that the spirit of the French resistance is not yet completely dead.

I can't be the only one who remembers that swim suits weren't allowed in NYC's public schools and elsewhere into the 60's. Health reasons. .. the American Public Health Association in 1926 issued its first guidelines for maintaining sanitation in school pools.. http://www.tnsprofessorsig.org/nude%20swimming%20in%20school.html Frankly, I wouldn't get in the water with those flea infested Burkas.

Well my high school in New Jersey in the early 60's had the same rule. They said it was to keep lint out of the filters. Needless to say that at that time boys could not declare themselves girls in swim class.

Both responses seem silly and unnecessary. Wouldn’t it be wiser for the Moslems to just build their own pools? Heaven knows they have access to enough money. And as for beaches, why not just cordón off a portion for burkinis like we do with nude beaches?

How can one swim in a burka style swimsuit? Are ankles bared? Do they still look like the photo negative of the KKK? All that material has to be heavy when wet.

In the aftermath of the first set of Democrat debates, the strategy of the institutional democrats and their media assets gains a little clarity.Senator Elizabeth Warren emerged unscathed thanks to her wounded-Indian routine and generally safe position on the first night of the foray. Warren’s minority status, when combined with the baffle-em’-with-BS routine, appeared to align with pre-debate intents. Senator Harris took Biden’s scalp knocking a solid ten percent from his pre-debate polling by accusing him of toxic whiteness/institutional racism. Ever the opportunist, Spank-Me positioned herself as the heir-apparent to the grievance vote. Booker attempted to regain grievance position, but his ethnic linguistics only made him look silly.

Conventional wisdom holds that political parties evolve, but do so slowly, over passing generations. But today’s Democrats have broken land-speed records as they have careened leftward on the question of immigration. Today’s Democratic Party is nearly unrecognizable when compared with where it was a decade ago, or even five years ago. And the transformation has been extreme. On the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives this week, Democrats lined up to denounce the unsanitary and overcrowded housing conditions of unaccompanied minors at the border, wildly or willfully ignorant of the fact that they have known for nearly

How was it a debate when everyone there—including the moderators!—peddles almost identical anti-American and anti-nationalist policies?

The scene at New York City's Stonewall Inn on Saturday, as reported by multiple witnesses on social media, showed how long-simmering tensions between transgender women of color and white gay men have boiled over during the celebration of World Pride and the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising. The unidentified woman wanted to address the crowd inside the Greenwich Village gay bar where patrons fought back against police harassment 50 years ago, birthing the LGBTQ movement. She arrived unannounced and disrupted a drag show, drawing an unfriendly response at first.
