As a result, I simply indicated that making a political statement at such an event wasn't "paying respects", as outlined in the OP. "Keep crying"?? Who's crying? I'm pretty sure that's you. You get all emotional and weepy, pitching insults, just because someone dares to have an alternate opinion to yours. Again, not much of a Libertarian, are you?
    I've never once claimed that she was making a political statement, I've only responded to your idiotic claims that she was. Go troll somewhere else if that's what you want to do, I'm not going to be strawmanned into an argument.

    Not conforming to shariah law dress code standards is not insulting muslims.

    Not once did I indicate a desire to engage you in discussion. You got all butt-hurt because I posted an opinion contrary to yours and decided to confront me about it. The trolling was and is all yours.

    Take care and have a good day.

    When we were there, women were not required to wear head scarves. The only accommodation our military women made was that they were allowed to wear their hats indoors if they chose to. This had an impact in bartering and haggling over purchase prices. Not much else. Even those that chose to wear a head scarf where seen with disrespect. I understan for a time later that the military had all the women covering their heads. Dont know if that is still the practice.
    Wait, sorry, I got lost in your comment. Are you speaking of our military? And by hats are you referring to the PC's (protective covers)?

    Sorry, just trying to track.

    Didn't realize you are such a big Michelle-hater.

    You're trying too hard. What you should be learning is that hatred of Muslims makes for strange hypocritical stances.

    I don't know about that, but I did say this.

    I'll learn that when you learn to stop finding racism where there is none.
