    Didn't think the Austrians had it in them. That's a bold step outside the EU's agenda

    Not a fan of laws like this, but in a world which currently- and insanely -supports an oppressive religion like Islam, this is better than the status quo.

    Muslims shouldn't be allowed higher privileges than anyone else, like concealing their identity and driving full veil like in other EU countries. Fuck dat double standard.

    Austria. Home of Arnold and Hitler.



    Any ways, the bit about mandatory language and SOP lessons is great, as well as the slave labour bit.

    Well here in the US we are full bore on supporting an oppressive religion like Christianity.

    Yeah and people are supporting Islam OVER Christianity, which might be the craziest thing.

    I really just want the 90s back when the cool thing was to shit on all religions.

    I thought it was deliberate. Mixing the two is a meme of sorts.

    Added that poll. Curious if people really think it's a good idea to ban such a thing. Seems very short sighted to me

    Small potatoes, banning muslims would actually solve issues.

    Again, a flat out ban would be short sighted as well. You shouldn't want government making those calls. I could understand priority maybe or strict vetting which I think the US already has but a ban outright has longer consequences and would be an emotional decision.
