    I have to wonder if any Canadian news service is aware of this?

    • Stronger Than Dirt

      There aren’t any, anymore. just mendacious sychophants are left.

      • SDMatt

        The CBC has referred to something called “the prophet Mohammad.”

        They’re so religious over there.

        • Rosenmops

          I’m watching Fox. I refuse to watch Canadian news, except a bit of local news.

          • WalterBannon

            there is no canadian news now, only propaganda

          • Blacksmith

            Yes it is certainly unfortunate. I am waiting for FOX to completely flip, they are moving leftward in my opinion.

          • Mel

            Sad but true. This misguided obsession with “fair and balance” is insane. They don’t realize that by showing news from a conservative viewpoint, they ARE being fair and balanced. They need to get rid of garbage like Geraldo and the other liberals.

          • David Murrell

            Now that SunNews is gone, there is no meaningful Canadian news to watch.

          • horn-swoooped

            Ditto-esp. since Sun News died,well,was strangled.

        • Oh Cripes they really did.

          Vilks has faced numerous threats for caricaturing the Prophet Muhammad.

            I just looked at the Censorship Bureau of Canada for BC and didn’t see any mention of this. But there is an interesting article about a native B-Ball player being upset that there is LNG sponsorship at the all native B-Ball tournament.

          • kkruger71

            Actually both the Globe and CBC stories are from the Associated Press, so they both reprinted the “Prophet Mo” bit, just to be clear.

          • Good catch.

      • Una Salus

        Talk by Lars Vilks not too long before this 4h56m54s into the video

    Some folks randomly shooting at folks again.

    This is known as ‘randomly shooting a bunch of folks at a debate on Islam.’

    • Yes no doubt some attendee got carried away.

      • A squabble over the car space.

        Meh, this is just a typical Muslim powerpoint with bullet points.

    • pdxnag

      At a debate on “randomness?”

      All statistical tools and formulas on statistical probabilities and confidence levels are wrong. Ask any Islamic scholar. Jews did it. All Muslims are victims of non-Muslims, always and forever.

  • Stronger Than Dirt

    I wonder if this anything to do with islam …again ?

    • Frau Katze

      Of course not. It’s those evil “hijackers” of Islam again. Why don’t they hijack some other religion for a change?

      • barryjr

        Because the the Hindus are too violent and would fight back.

        • occupant 9

          That’s the reason for the Sikhs existence: to fight against the Muslims to protect the Hindu.

  • Xavier

    French ambassador says police claim over 200 shots fired.

    • Raymond Hietapakka

      …200 wireless messages from Alllah…

  • T.C.

    Thirty shots, eh? Should be easy enough for the cops to track down the owner. A civilian can’t own a semi-auto or hand gun in Denmark without special authorization. Full autos are banned. Just get out the list of owners. Case solved!

    • Exile1981

      I agree, I mean look at the paris shootings and the the ones in mersailles (sp?) they all involved ak-47’s owned by members of the religion of peace ™… who keeps giving them permits for these things? – sarc

      • They also had an RPG as I recall. Hope there’s a registry for those.

        • Stronger Than Dirt

          Perhaps … Every mosque has a weapons registry, best not let Rock know he’ll have to come up with $billion$ taxpayer dollars to get that registry up and ‘running’.

          The RPG registry!

          • Exile1981

            If I grow a beard can I apply for an RPG permit?

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Just say that they are part of your cultural heritage, like the Sikhs and their ceremonial kirpan daggers.

          • Exile1981

            Ohh, in that case I should get a permit for a tommy gun given some of my relatives. I look pretty good in a pin stripe suit and white tie too.

    • ntt1

      Thanks to Netflix I enjoy a wide range of northern European crime dramas and most of them refer to Belgium as the place to buy unlimited assault weapons. it seems to be a common belief They are also starting to make the baddies muslim rather than a random British soccer hooligan. Right now its Bosnian muslims, but it is a start.

        Shengen area has free movement from Croatia to Denmark. Skorpion machine pistols have been finding their way from Croatia to other countries in the Shengen area..

    • David Murrell

      Media reports have it that an automatic weapon (a machine pistol?) was used.

          Nope… Atheist art critics who have nothing to do with Islam

        Hey, I’m a Baptist!!! And I am innocent!!!

  • pdxnag

    This is Islam. This is (attempted) enforcement of Sharia law.

  • ontario john

    Gee, will the muslim groups demonstrating in Canadian cities about the three muslims killed in the States, be demonstrating on behalf of the three policemen injured? I’m sure the CBC will let us know.

  • jzaik

    #thetruthisstilloutthere

  • The Globe and Mail refers to The Prophet Mohammed as well

    I doubt they will let this comment through.

    It wasn’t a shooting. It was a random act of art criticism.

    …I guess the muzzle’ems there are now subsequently cowering and moaning, terrorized and fearing and bracing for the inevitable backlash of payback attacks on their holy temples..

    But Heather Mallick in today’s Star says we should love muslims like she does. That would solve everything.

      Anyone remember 1973, Gene Taylor, and his “I Love Idi”(Amin) tee-shirts?

    • OH God, now I have to read that.

        She also thinks that everyone should rely on her beloved CBC as she calls it, in today’s rant.

          she should suck on a revolver

      It would … until the tribal violence starts and scores get settled, then settled, then settled, you get the pattern called Islam.

  • roccolore

    Once again, Muslims will defend the shooter, then whine about “Islamophobia.”

  • kkruger71

    Wow, the comments on the CBC article are tough to slog through. I have a hard time wrapping my head around how people can really think that way.

    • David Murrell

      They are tough. Some of them blame Jews and Christians for this latest attack. More and more there is a growing, left-fascist movement in Canada. Many of the adherents blog on the “comments” sections of CBC News and the Globe and Mail. I kid you not. These comments are getting more ripe by the day.

    • Rosenmops

      CBC comments are usually a cesspit. They refuse to post decent comments.

    And the pope wants more of this wonderful diversity in Europe!

    • tom_billesley

      Europeans are not chutchgoers the way they were at one time. He thinks that the threat of islam brought with the invaders will drive his flock back to the Church.

  • John

    This is never going to end. It’s really depressing. As the numbers of Muslims increases exponentially we’ll become refugees, second class citizens, in our own homes and neighbourhoods

    • occupant 9

      already happening. Been to a hospital lately?

  • Xavier

    Now the reports are that it was a single shooter, and police are asking for help identifying the man in this photo. There are comments of “Arabic but with lighter skin than normal” and the usual replies of “Racism!”.

    • David Murrell

      Wait! This is racial stereotyping! The police are not allowed to give physical descriptions of the perp. After all, the person pictured above could be a 90-year-old Catholic nun!!

      • Xavier

        …and now they’re saying “likely terror attack”

  • David Murrell

    At 2pm (Saturday, February 14) on CBC News, the CBC news-reader-thingy reports this event, stating that “the controversial Lars Vilks was in attendance, a cartoonist who drew Mohammed cartoons”. So Mr. Vilks is “controversial”, in CBC ‘s eyes, given that he actual drew pictures of Mohammed. Depicting on paper a religious prophet, thus, is controversial.
