Netherlands: "In five years our women.. will all walk around with headscarves"
Coincidentally, Trots op Nederland (TON) has crashed in recent polls and will potentially lose its one seat in parliament.
Former Dutch minister of integration Rita Verdonk, head of the TON party in an interview (NL) in HP/De Tijd:
"If we go on this way in our country, in five years our women, daughters and granddaughters will all walk around with headscarves."
"Our values and norms, the freedom of expression, equal treatment of men and women, of gays and straights, those things are being threatened. We're letting [people] walk all over us in the Netherlands. I say: every burka is one too many. In England there's already a pool where women can't enter without a burkini. And then you hear women complaining that they were rejected by an employer because of their headscarf. That is not discrimination, that is the proper right of an employer."
