Taxpayer funded ad encourages German women to wear the hijab, because ‘it’s beautiful!’

Who could have possibly seen this coming? After years of virtually unhindered immigration from Muslim countries, native German women are being actively encouraged to “enjoy difference” by wearing … wait for it … a Muslim hijab.

That’s right, Germany’s government, through the taxpayer-funded United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), actually used public monies to encourage women to show “tolerance” by wearing the Muslim headscarf.

The clip starts with a hijab wearing woman facing away from the camera with the text “Turkish women wear the hijab.” Then, the woman turns and reveals herself to be a blonde-haired German showing off her bare legs and exclaiming, “Me too! It’s beautiful!” She then encourages Germans to “start tolerance” and “enjoy difference” by giving the hijab a shot.

Because Muslims are all about difference, especially once they find themselves in charge of a country.

The ad actually first emerged in 2011, but has again made the rounds amid growing angst about both the Muslim veil and the presence of migrants in general. Last week, a restaurant owner reacted to a women who refused to take off her hijab by throwing her out, the Express reported. In July, a Muslim intern was fired by the mayor of a German town on her first day of work, for refusing to remove her headscarf.

Even Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrat party, which has been struggling in the polls and in recent elections, has been forced to take a more hard-line stand, and is now pushing for a ban on burqas in public places.

An August Deutschland Trend poll showed 30 percent of Germans want the burqa and niqab banned in public places, and 51 percent favor their prohibition altogether.

Shockingly (or not), tensions have been ongoing between German citizens and the over one million refugees Germany took last year. Just last Thursday, the town of Bautzen was the location of a mass brawl between German locals and migrants.
