‘Fox And Friends’ Warns Of YMCA Swim Class For Muslim Girls (VIDEO)

December 2, 2013


Fox News is warning viewers about a YMCA swim class for Muslim girls, suggesting that it’s a bad sign of the “minority becoming the majority.”

A YMCA in St. Paul, Minnesota recently teamed up with the St. Paul Police Department to offer a swim class for Somali-American girls. The class respects the girls’ religious beliefs, and Minneapolis Star Tribune recently reported on the need for the program and its success.

Fox News saw it differently. “The minority becoming the majority at one community pool,” newsreader Heather Nauert said on Monday’s “Fox and Friends.” “Sharia law is now changing everything.”

“This means during the one hour class, the pool is being shut down,” she said. “The men’s locker room is being locked and female life guards are being brought in. Similar classes are now starting at towns across the Midwest. We’ll keep watching this story for you.”

Lifeguard in Montreal Allowed to Wear “Burkini”

A 21 year-old woman who works at the YMCA in Montreal has been permitted to wear a “burquini” as a lifeguard at a local sports complex. The young woman had filed a complaint with the Human Rights Board when the centre refused to allow her to wear a hijab when working at the pool. Previously the pool complex had installed tinted glass windows to accommodate women’s requests for privacy. The centre’s administration decided that the burkini, a headscarf made of polyester materials that cover the hair completely, would be the best alternative.
