A man dressed as a shark was arrested in Austria and officials cited the countries Burka ban. The man was working as a mascot for a McShark electronics store in Vienna when the arrest occurred.
New restrictions came into effect in Austria at the beginning of the month banning the wearing of the full Islamic veil and other items concealing the face in public places and buildings. This ban extends to medical masks and scarves as well, making the shark costume an obvious “no-go.” The restrictions are aimed at “ensuring the cohesion of society in an open society,” according to officials, and violations will be punished with a fine of up to €150. Even though the wording of the law was meant to be religiously-neutral, there is still a grey area in which Austrians appear to be exploiting in order to make a point.
When the police saw the young man in the shark costume, he was asked to remove it. The employee protested saying he was “just doing his job,” so the police arrested him and slapped him with a fine. Apparently, the man in the shark suit was reported to police by a member of the public who wanted to make a point of the new piece of legislation. The McShark electronics company is now reviewing its policy on using mascots to ensure they comply with the new law.
The advertising agency Warda Network, who was at the McShark opening, wrote on its Facebook page. “Today we were at the McShark store opening and our shark mascot received a fine from the Vienna police because of the new ban on face-coverings. Life is not easy.” Elsewhere in the Austrian capital, a cyclist was said to have been arrested and fined for wearing a scarf over her face, according to local media.
According to the Daily Mail, in passing the new legislation, officials in Vienna said, “Acceptance and respect of Austrian values are basic conditions for successful cohabitation between the majority Austrian population and people from third countries living in Austria.” The new laws also apply to visitors, even though many tourists in the country are from Arab nations.
Other measures which went into effect on October 1 include immigrants being forced to sign an “integration contract” and compulsory courses in the German language and “values.”
Unwelcome changes and new laws are being forced on the sheeple throughout the world because of ….
They don’t want to be caught singling out muzzies, so it has to apply to everyone. At least they are standing up to the muzzies. Fining a mascot at a store is a wee tad ridiculous, though.
Maybe you have’nt seen them in your neighborhood yet; but they are moving in. And, Ameikans will make way for them, not tell them to uncover their faces…
how is it acronymized? ROTFLMAO? right? SNL’s old skit – ‘Land Shark’ now is found to be prophetic!!! God help us all if the Austrians ever see one of the Sharknado movies.
We need to get all illegal aliens out of our country. It’s OUR country and we don’t owe them anything.
brave…I don’t know everyone on here as you do…there are two knew rumors out of vegas…security guard was hit before…yes before…any shots were thrown at the concert grounds…swat team was seen lugging a large heavy duffle up the stairs…took two men to carry it…you or anyone else heard this?
DENNINGER SAYS the swat team sat in stairway for an hour….the guard was shot SIX minutes before opening fire on crowd.
bcod…thanks for the link it verifies what I was told…I wonder what was in that bag?…MAC WHY DO MY POST HAVE TO WAIT 10 to 24 HRS BEFORE BEING POSTED? MAKES IT HARD TO PARTICIPATE… AM I REALY THAT BAD? YES I HAVE ALWAYS USED THE SAME E MAIL ADDRESS AND MONIKER>>>
You utter the wrong gender pronoun in California you can receive jail time. Some of these laws have gone overboard especially in Europe. Freedom of speech here is being sorely tested. Start passing out the duct tape.
Jim in Va –
Sadly … you are very much correct.
All we are witnessing in Europe … is a prelude for what America will become. So far … their Agenda is working just fine for them, because nobody seems to care to do anything about it.
All cops should be arrested then for dressing as clowns.
I hear the Chicago police have finally figured out how to catch all their black gang bangers. They pulled sirens off the squad cars and started playing the National Anthem.
“Acceptance and respect of Austrian values are basic conditions for successful cohabitation between the majority Austrian population and people from third countries living in Austria.”
Can we have this as a condition of living in the USA also?
“Acceptance and respect of American values are basic conditions for successful cohabitation between the majority United States population and people from third countries living in the United States.”
Just like if you go to Mexico illegally, and they throw you in jail and throw away the key, but do **WE** do that> nope.
Things have gotta change.
I dunno … dude in the shark suit looks fishy to me.
Does Saudi Sports Illustrated have a burkini edition?
It’s a good idea. While touring the ME sometimes men dressed in Burquas posed as females but were actually suicide bombers. I hope they bring a new law here in the USA.
One of my favorite pet peeves: people who can’t just mind their own damn business (person reported him just to make a point). Wonder if they made a point to pay his fine.
On a lighter note: Fritz, that was hilarious.
Giving up liberty is a small price to pay to gain protection from land sharks!
Another vivid example of how insane the world’s governments have become…
“The McShark electronics company is now reviewing its policy on using mascots to ensure they comply with the new law.”
Nobody knows how to answer the problem, because the officer and anonymous tipster are supposed to be holy unto themselves.
But, I have heard of an Old Testament law (Deut 18:16-21), in which false accusers pay the penalty for a crime.
The officer, anonymous tipster, and store ownership needs to be denounced as subversives, for putting the faithful worker on par with a terrorist.
Not being a store mascot, but response fatigue, is a mutually agreed-upon example of terrorism. So, false accusers are literally terrorists.
Rather be terrorized by muzzies than organized government criminals
15 When Judah saw her, he thought she was a prostitute, for she had covered her face.
A head covering is one thing….But this covering up of the face is what, in ancient days, identified one as a PROSTITUTE.
I wonder……Do they know this?
Is there anywhere, in the world, that has not gone off the deep end for globalists?
