Conservative British councillor suspended for alleged ‘racism’ against Muslims. For the millionth time, will someone please tell me, what ‘race’ is Islam?
Conservative councillor, Chris Joannides, has been suspended and is under investigation after allegedly making anti-Muslim remarks on a social media website.
UK Guardian Chris Joannides’s Facebook page contained material comparing Muslim women who wear the burqa to garbage bags. A complaint has also been made to the Metropolitan police and Joannides may face disciplinary action from his fellow Conservative councillors.
Over a picture of a woman and child dressed in burqas, with a black garbage bag either side of them, Joannides appeared to have written: “I saw her standing there and I told her she had three beautiful children. She didn’t have to get all pissed off and threaten me … an honest mistake.”
