CBC: European anti-Islam group PEGIDA plans debut in Montreal

A PEGIDA demonstration in Dresden, Germany.

A Europe-based anti-Islam, anti-immigration group called PEGIDA is making its Quebec debut this weekend — and local politicians and community members want to tell the group its views aren’t welcome in Montreal.

PEGIDA Québec members are planning an anti-Islam gathering on the outskirts of Montreal’s Little Maghreb neighbourhood, a largely North African Muslim community in the Montreal borough of Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension.

Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre said Thursday he condemns any instance of Islamophobia in the city…

Shut up, CBC and politicians. The people are speaking.

    “Shut up, CBC and politicians. The people are speaking.” All I can say is that I absolutely adore this statement. Never thought I’d see it.

    • Surele Surele

      I’m definitely borrowing it.

    Whose side do you think the Occupy people will come down on?

    • Canadian

      On the muzzie side. And the commie party, Québec Solitaire et al also.
      There will be a counter-demo by the left, and the “journalists” will ridicule Pediga and call them bnazis. Just like in Deutchland.

    No comments open at CBC on this story.

      The Canadian Bureau of Censorship doesn’t have comments when it can be proved what douchebags they are.

    Why can’t the peasants just do what there betters tell them.

    “Shut up, CBC and politicians. The people are speaking.”
    Absolutely perfect comment.

  • Just a thought

    I wish them success.

  • cmh

    wish i didn’t live so far away so i could attend and support the cause…..

  • Edubeat

    If they don’t speak the french language then the language cops will be around to arrest the protestors.

        Even though I understand the point made and find it funny, it still is a bit of an exaggeration in this case.

        • Canadian

          At least the Pediga demos in Toronto won`t be bothered by the language police.
          When exactly are they scheduled for?
          Haven`t heard anything yet…

            They’re busy hiring more Somalis at security checkpoints at Pearson.

    The time has come for TRUE CANADIANS to take a stand against ISLAMOFASCISM.
    I’M beginning to like Quebec more and more. There is no room for islam in Canada. The ultimate goal of the caliphate is world domination and when you look at a map of the world you’ll find that between communism and islam there’s not much of a (free) world left to conquer.
    PEACE with islam is attainable only with an ocean between us….unfortunately the “wooden horse” was rolled into Troy (Canada and the West) by the progressive left itself.
    Western Civilization, what remains of it, has a serious problem, based on PEW Research statistics 25% of muslims in Canada and the United States support JIHAD. Current muslim population in North America is approximately 12,000,000 which translates to 3,000,000 supporters of JIHAD AGAINST THE WEST. Applying the statistical formula to Canada’s muslim predicament we can predict that approximately 250,000 of them are favorable towards JIHAD. Let’s presume that the stats are inflated and that only 5% condone JIHAD, that translates to a figure of 50,000. Can you imagine 50,000 suicide (homicide) bombers in Canada? The “majority” of PEACE LOVING MUSLIMS is irrelevant. The majority of peace loving muslims were no doubt against the burning alive of the Jordanian pilot by ISIS, the majority of peace loving muslims were no doubt against the vicious slaughter of innocent people in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, the majority of peace loving muslims no doubt condemn the slaughter and enslavement of women and children in Nigeria by BOKO HAREM but yet none of these peace loving muslims did anything to stop the barbaric atrocities.
    I do not want PEACE LOVING MUSLIMS in my country.

    • Pegida style marches in all cities of the Western world are a good start to awaken people about the threat of Islam and Moslems (believers in Islam). But eventually, political parties (existing or new) must be actively turned against the Islamic/Moslem takeover. The laws of every country need to be consciously and explicitly changed to stop and reverse the folly of multiculturalism and immigration.

    During operation Cast Lead in ’06 Corderre marched with Hamas supporters protesting Israel.

    And the riding in Montréal North that he once represented has a high Muslim population.

    His administration is a laugh. Montréal’s streets have so many potholes you often can’t go more than 20 KM an hour.

    But do you know what this genius has been up to?

    Speed Bumps!

    He’s building speed bumps on potholed ( cratered?) streets so people don’t break the speed limits.

    Geez, if you attempted to break the speed limit on my speed ‘bumped’ street, you’d break an axel first.
