Intellectual elites argue that different cultures and their values are morally equivalent. That’s ludicrous. Western culture and values are superior to all others. I have a few questions for those who’d claim that such a statement is untrue or smacks of racism and Eurocentrism. Is forcible female genital mutilation, as practiced in nearly 30 sub-Saharan African and Middle Eastern countries, a morally equivalent cultural value? Slavery is practiced in Mauritania, Mali, Niger, Chad and Sudan; is it morally equivalent? In most of the Middle East, there are numerous limitations placed on women, such as prohibitions on driving, employment and education. Under Islamic law, in some countries, female adulterers face death by stoning. Thieves face the punishment of having their hands severed. Homosexuality is a crime punishable by death in some countries. Are these cultural values morally equivalent, superior or inferior to Western values?

What got Trudeau’s Y-fronts in a twist was Conservative MP Peter Kent writing an op-ed piece for the Wall Street Journal outlining the stink over what I have called the Liberals’ decision to “punt on first down,” and give Khadr $10.5 million in settlement money rather than fight his lawsuit in court and letting the chips fall where they may. “When I deal with the United States, I leave the domestic squabbles at home,” Trudeau said. “Other parties don’t seem to have that rule, but I think it’s one that Canadians appreciate.”
“I stand with Omar Khadr” is the latest campaign from activist group Leadnow. They’re calling on Canadians to sign a petition to show their solidarity with the former al-Qaida enthusiast.
Don’t believe me? I don’t blame you. I had to read it several times myself to fully grasp the absurdity of the situation.
‘If only I had kept my opinion about Islam to myself’… You do not keep your opinions to yourself. Every day, from every corner I hear how ‘Islam is a religion of peace’ and that ‘Islamists are not practising real Islam’. Religion is shoved down my throat until I suffocate; yet I must keep my opinions to myself? Do I not also have the right to speak and think as I choose? Until Islamists stop threatening me, I will shout my atheism from every rooftop.

On last night’s show, I reported on Kevin Johnston, a Canadian journalist, being charged with a “hate motivated” crime. What lead to this charge has not been revealed, and Johnston has been ordered not to discuss the case, but we do know that the charge is based on “information published on various social media sites”. Johnston has a history of criticizing Islam, like Muslim prayers in public schools where Christian prayers have long been banned.
WATCH my video to see how the government ignores criticism of Islam by the left while they silence conservatives with bogus hate crime laws.
As an ex-Muslim, one intimately versed in the Koran and the mindset of so many who take literally its arrogant and intolerant admonitions, few things distress me more than seeing every latest massacre followed by the warm and fuzzy pieties of those in the West who find convenient not to understand. The normalisation of the Western response to Islamic terrorism has arrived at such a state of cognitive dissonance and muddled morality that we expect and see automatic messages of solidarity after every latest terror attack — sympathy not for the victims but for Islam.
