A Christian woman who has been wearing an Islamic headbag as a gesture of solidarity with Muslims said she got a lot of blowback from her sons’ Boy Scout troop. Dr. Lori Szeszywcki said the backlash from her sons’ Scout troop has her “looking over my shoulder a little bit.”
CBS “It’s not a pleasant feeling to know that things are going on behind my back, and I do wonder a little bit what’s going to happen next, because some folks have a lot of time on their hands, and these things will fester,” she said.
Szeszywcki said her decision to wear a hijab is a gesture of solidarity. “It is not a political gesture,” she said. (Yes, it is, only a leftist useful idiot for Islam would do that)
The negative reaction from her sons’ Scout troop was delivered by an emissary, who suggested she remove the hijab. “‘Look, folks don’t like this and they want you to take it off, and they’re viewing this as very negative and very disruptive,’ and I refused,” she said.
Szeszywcki said a troop leader got phone calls after she started wearing the hijab six weeks ago.“I was particularly disheartened by her quote-unquote ‘explanation’ for these phone calls. So, apparently, when people would call her and say, ‘Hey, what’s Lori Szeszywcki doing wearing hijab to meetings?’ she would say, ‘Well, I just think it’s an error in judgment. She’s had a hard year.’
Despite the negative reaction from the troop, and embarassment to her son, she still goes to Boy Scout activities wearing the symbol of Islamic supremacism and misogyny.
