Evidently the liberal press in France as it is here. It seems that they left out a few minor details about the so called Burkini riot. Like , for instance, the three women were wearing full burkas. They also forgot to mention that their three husbands tried to seal off the public beach, throwing stones at anyone who came too close. They also forgot to mention that the three Muslim men threatened beach goers with baseball bats and harpoons. The French press must have really bad memories, like Hillary and her aides testifying under oath.
Nicolas Bessone, a Corsican prosecutor, made a public statement pointing all of these things in order to get the word out to the people who get their news from a dishonest press like we have in this country.
The brothers insulted anyone who got too close, and even pelted them with stones if they persisted in coming to close to their lives. Village witnesses reported the brothers were threatening people with harpoons and a baseball bat. France24 news reported a car was even set on fire.
The fight began to escalate between the brothers and local villages, until local police arrived and arrested the brothers and two villagers for fighting.
“There was a gangster-style attempt to take over the beach,” Bessone said before admonishing the villagers. Bessone continued that the fighting was an “overreaction on the part of the villagers.”
French Prime Minister Manuel Valls supported the ban, saying the Burkini’s are not compatible with French values, and saying they represent “the enslavement of women.”
Lionnel Luca, the mayor of Villeneuve-Loubet, doubled down on the ban telling Agence France Presse, “In France, one does not come to the beach dressed to display one’s religious convictions, especially as they are false convictions that the religion does not demand.”
A local court in Nice upheld the Burkini ban on Saturday saying the ban was legal under the provision that people should not be “invoking their religious beliefs to skirt common rules regulating relations between public authorities and private individuals.”
