Ever since Trump’s election, U.S. “progressives” have turned their red, watery eyes north of the 49th parallel for psychological succor. PM Justin Trudeau quickly positioned himself as the West’s left-wing leader-in-exile, declaring, among other risibilities, that individuals affected by the president’s “Muslim ban” were welcome to come to Canada instead. (Funny, I’ve been inconvenienced at airports for over 15 years thanks to a bunch of Muslim immigrants. Yet Muslim immigrants suddenly being inconvenienced at airports for 15 hours is evidently Holocaust 2: Electric Boogaloo. P.S. If Muslims are “the new Jews,” why are they are so eager to flee into a nation their infidel enablers insist is ruled by “Hitler” and overrun by “Nazis”…?)
“There is one victim none of us want to talk about, Imam Hussein Guillet told the several thousand people gathered at Quebec City’s convention centre for Friday’s funeral for three of the six killed in Sunday’s mosque shooting spree. This victim, his name is (alleged shooter) Alexandre Bissonnette,” Guillet said. “Somebody planted ideas (in his head) more dangerous than bullets. This little kid didn’t wake up in the morning and say: Today, instead of going to a picnic or watching the Canadiens, I will go and kill some people in the mosque. It doesn’t happen that way.”
Open Letter on Motion M-103
To all Conservative Members of Parliament
As the vote on Motion M-103 fast approaches, I am writing to you, as a Conservative of many years, to appeal to you not to take us down this dangerous path towards limiting our constitutional right to freedom of expression. I am active on Facebook, on a number of conservative sites, and I can tell you that this is the number one concern right now, i.e. that pressure to be seen as “inclusive” and against “hatred”, to dispel the (unwarranted) depiction of the Harper Conservatives as “angry” (and also, of course, the desire to win over new voters), will persuade you to vote “Yes” to Motion M-103. It should not! This is a vote of conscience! Our right to Freedom of Expression underpins every other freedom we enjoy in a democratic society. Without freedom of expression, there can BE no freedom of religion! Freedom of religion does not, nor should it, preclude the right of citizens to criticize any or all religious ideologies, including the way in which they may encroach on our democratic rights, human rights and societal values.
I realize that the recent, tragic event in Ste-Foy, Quebec may influence this vote. Again, it should not! There is, to date, no indication from police that this heinous act was terrorism, or that it was motivated by “Islamophobia”. It could, for all we know, be schizophrenia or retribution against a teacher who gave the assailant a poor mark at university. A “like” for Donald Trump (he has 20 million likes!) does not a “white supremacist” make. Even should we learn that this young man was motivated by hatred for Muslims, this does not constitute proof of a widespread, societal problem of violence against Muslims (anti-Semitic acts far exceed those against Muslims), nor is there scientific proof to show that such violence is motivated by “hate speech”, as opposed to an understandable fear arising from the global proliferation of jihadi attacks! None of this would justify any limitation on our freedom of speech as it pertains to discussion of concerns about the teachings of Islam (or any religion). Moreover, although Canada has already experienced a number of attacks (and aborted plots) motivated by Islamic terrorism, our Government has not undertaken an expansive study of what religious discrimination might underlie such attacks and the systemic remedies needed to prevent them. Why then, would this one attack on a mosque, horrific though it was, justify a similar study?
Ah, but the “optics”, you may say! Arguments for voting Yes to M-103 will no doubt be linked to this tragic event and deliberately framed as a vote for the Canadian values of “multi-culturalism” and “inclusiveness” – and against “hate”. Who would want to be seen as “cold-hearted” and “hate-filled”? Well, Conservative voters expect our leaders to possess both a heart and a mind and to use both! One can decry the recent violence against members of a mosque, while at the same time voting against M-103 on the basis of its potential, in the long-term, to harm Canadian democracy.
But this is just a motion, you may say; it means nothing! But it is the second vote of the House of Commons on this topic (after e-411 against “Islamophobia”) and this motion is specific in its demands and dangerously wide in its scope. Having voted twice in agreement with (unsubstantiated) statements to the effect that Islamophobia is a problem in Canada that needs to be studied and remedied, it will be that much more difficult for the House to vote against recommendations to remedy these purported “systemic” ills (which will by then have been supported by “scientific” research and data). The House will literally have painted itself into a corner!
To reiterate, a “Yes” vote for M-103 will take us down a dangerous road towards legislation to amend the Charter so as to limit our Freedom of Expression (and potentially, to inflict a wide range of legislation, policies and programmes on our society), in order to “protect” a religious group that is already adequately protected, as are all Canadians, under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the Criminal Code. To vote “ Yes” to this motion is to give credence to the author’s depiction of Canadian society as one which is overcome by a “public climate of hate and fear”, and rife with “systemic racism”, problems which are so overwhelming, so widespread and so dangerous as to require a “whole-of-government” approach to tackle them! It is difficult to subscribe to such a dystopian view of Canadian society. It is even more difficult to arrive at the conclusion that these acts of “Islamophobia” are MORE dangerous to our society than the rapidly-spreading, malignant ideology of Islamic terrorism, which glorifies jihad attacks to kill as many “unbelievers” as possible! Furthermore, one has to wonder whether legislative changes to remedy “Islamophobia” (e.g. limitations to Freedom of Speech) could prevent subsequent attempts by the Canadian Government to “quell” the societal ill of Islamic terrorism.
This IS a vote of conscience, a vote FOR our Freedom of Expression, and nothing else! Conservatives online are well aware of this issue and of its potential consequences. They will not forgive their Conservative leaders for voting “Yes” on this motion! Your votes on M-103 will assuredly be top-of-mind when Conservatives vote for their next leader on May 27th.
5 Feb, 2017
Because of the mosque tragedy, on Feb. 16, the House will likely vote unanimously for Motion 103, which is potentially a retrograde step for freedom of speech in Canada, at least insofar as it concerns “Islamophobia.” M-103 asks for a study to determine “a whole-of-government approach to reducing or eliminating systemic racism and religious discrimination including Islamophobia.” Though singled out for special consideration, it is noteworthy that the motion does not define Islamophobia.
The Prime Minister of Canada will be holding a vote on February 16, 2017, Motion M103, that if passed, will enact Islamic Blasphemy Laws in Canada creating a defacto Sharia compliant state on the Northern border of the United States. In order to push this vote forward, Trudeau has diabolically employed psychological warfare tactics created by the Muslim Brotherhood, and has smeared the entire Canadian population with the lie that they are Islamophobic.

Jews are far more likely to be victims of hate crimes in Canada than Muslims. But a motion called M-103 is coming before Parliament on February 16 to urge special consideration regarding “Islamophobia” without defining the word.
