Senator Cory Bernardi has said he’s “right on board” with Denmark’s recent decision to ban the Islamic full-face veil in public spaces. Senator Bernardi told Triple M:
You shouldn’t be able to cover your face in public buildings. If you want to do it in your backyard, that’s OK. But what’s the point of having security cameras on our streets or CCTV if you don’t know who’s hiding underneath it?
There’s been evidence that criminals have been using it… It is the flag of Islamic fundamentalism and we don’t want Islamic fundamentalism in this country.
Senator @corybernardi is right on board Denmark's move against the #burqa, something he's advocated for many years (and copped it from so-called 'conservatives'). #auspol needs more Conservative Party senators to hold the line on Australian values
