Fred Nile is in the news again. For at least the third time, Nile is introducing a private members bill to the NSW Parliament seeking to ban the Burqa.
I understand his frustration. I myself have made numerous attempts to ban the tie at my college. It is a well known fact that tie wearers are 10 times more likely than T-shirt wearers to engage in acts of corporate terrorism. The tie conceals the true nature of the person. When you look at a tie wearer, what you think you see is a respectable citizen. In fact, however, Christopher Skase wore a tie, as did Bernard Modoff, the biggest fraudster in history.
As Nile suggests of the Burqa, “an open society has no place for the tie.” Tie wearers generally have no choice in the matter, forced by their corporate oppressors to “tie the knot” daily. More worryingly, under the supposedly respectable veneer of the tie is concealed an iphone with offshore bank details, and trails of money used to fund Japanese whaling and mining explorations of the barrier reef. We must do all we can to protect ourselves from corporate greed. Banning the tie is the only answer.
Anyway, i am interested to hear your comments – what do you think about the ban on the burqa (and the tie).
