Social media users have accused the BBC of “blatant propaganda” after the state broadcaster published a YouTube video featuring burqa-clad women warning people what not to say to them.
RT (h/t Christine D) Unfortunately, because of the ugly bags on their heads which cover their mouths, one can hardly understand what they are bitching about…which actually is a good thing.
After the video, entitled ‘Things Not To Say To Someone Who Wears a Burqa’, was published on the BBC Three YouTube channel, the broadcaster received a volley of accusations, with users branding it a leftist propaganda machine perpetuating a “regressive” ideology.
Political commentator Julie Lenarz was among those who took to Twitter to brand the BBC’s attempt to normalize burqas and niqabs “abhorrent.”

More politically correct nonsense from the BBC.

Be honest, if tomorrow the Pope mandated Catholic women wear burkas so men would not be tempted to sin, feminists would burn churches down.

How comfortable would all you BBC types be with people walking around in Nazi uniforms. Would you leap to their defence? #Naziphobia

Burka says one of two things:
a) I take Islam seriously
b) I'm oppressed by someone who takes Islam seriously
Either way, not a good look.
