How can one assimilate into American culture if the state of Illinois is okay with permitting Muslims to wear burqas in their driver license photographs?
This is merely another example of Obama’s America at work, which portrays that sensitivity is more prudent than anything else, and that we’re not at war with radical Islam.
I have a feeling Ann Coulter would object.
From Conservative Tribune:
Now, in the name of political correctness, one of our states wants to do away with this protection by allowing religious garments in drivers license photos. This can include headdresses or scarves — material that would conceal part of the head or face that would ordinarily not be allowed under law.
While most religious gear would still leave the ability to identify the subject at some level, the most concealing of Muslim religious garb for females — the burqa — would leave the entire head and face covered.
“While hats or head coverings are generally prohibited from being worn in photographs used on Illinois drivers licenses and identification cards, customers may be photographed while wearing established religious head coverings,” reads a flier distributed to state employees at the Illinois Department of Motor Vehicles. “Photographs increase public safety.”
Illinois DMV Deputy Press Secretary Henry Haupt confirmed to reporters that this would include the burqa and veil, as well as other religious coverings worn by Muslims and Sikhs.
“What we’re doing was always allowed… but what we want to ensure is that the public’s aware of them because we were told that some individuals were unaware that they could have their photo taken for the drivers [sic] license wearing them [religious head coverings],” Haupt said.
Political correctness run amok, once again?
How far are we willing to let this experiment go before we finally jump in and say enough is enough? What is it going to take?
It begs the question, why are outside influences more important than the safety and security of Americans at home?
