So much for national security. And I guess a voter ID law is pretty much useless now, too. Both due to the great state of Illinois now allowing burqas to be worn in Driver’s License photos, per Young Conservatives. Is it any surprise that the state who gave us the current resident of the White House (and where governors make license plates!) is going to put the entire Country at greater risk? Only in Obama’s America.
The following is 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.
Is this out of control political correctness or just part of the overall plan of radical Islam to bring Sharia law to America and completely change our way of life forever? Just seems suspicious that the 2% of Muslims in this Country have the power to jeopardize the safety of millions of Americans. After all, the TSA is doing such a good job now…
