After flooding her country with over a million migrants, German Chancellor Angela Merkel made a shocking move calling for a burka ban saying the ‘full veil is not appropriate’ in Germany.
“The full veil is not appropriate here,” she told party conference attendees, “it should be forbidden wherever that is legally possible.”
Merkel made the statement after vowing there would not be a repeat of the migrant influx that resulted in a rash of attacks across Germany due to an inability to vet the refugees.
That is an extreme about face.

In a surprising move, German Chancellor Angela Merkel at her party’s conference Tuesday morning called for a ban on full-face veils in the country.
“The full veil is not appropriate here, it should be forbidden wherever that is legally possible,” she said at the Christian Democratic Union gathering, receiving a large round of applause, according to The Sun. “It does not belong to us.”
Seeking to increase her low approval rating, Merkel expressed a determination to make sure there is no repeat of last year’s massive migrant influx, which was followed by a rash of attacks allegedly carried out by refugees who were largely un-vetted when they entered Germany.
Around 890,000 asylum-seekers arrived in Germany last year, many of them coming after Merkel determined in September 2015 to allow migrants who were stuck in Hungary into the country.
Merkel previously welcomed the enormous influx of Muslim refugees from the East. However, as she seeks a fourth term as German chancellor, Merkel sounds a little more like President-elect Donald Trump these days, than an Obama-like fan of Muslim refugees.
She is proposing a ban on the burka, demanding that migrants integrate into German society, and pledging to enforce law and order – including deportations.
“Not all the 890,000 refugees who came last year can or will stay,” she said in an attempt to counter anti-refugee sentiments sweeping the country.
Merkel also pledged that the law of the land stood above ‘any honour codes or Sharia.’
The only thing left would be for her to propose an all out ban on refugees from terrorist countries until we can find out what’s going on, and maybe build a wall.
