Racist Ontario Judge Ruins Everything For Foreigners Who Like To Beat The Crap Out Of Their Wives

An Ontario court has just affirmed that cultural norms that excuse violence have no place here: Editorial

In a welcome ruling the Ontario Court of Appeal has ruled that “cultural differences” cannot be used to justify a lighter sentence in criminal cases

The woman, a recent immigrant from Iran, suffered brutal spousal abuse but didn’t even realize it was against the law.

After moving to Canada in 2009 her husband forced the woman, whose identity is protected by the court, to have sex with him by hitting her, pulling her hair, pinching her and forcefully removing her clothes. “She cried out quietly so the children would not hear,” court was told.

He also slapped, kicked and punched their two sons and hit them with a belt. Once he locked them outside the house on a snowy winter day wearing nothing but shorts and T-shirts until their mother came home and rescued them.

When the husband was convicted of sexual assault and assault, Justice William Gorewich of Ontario court sentenced him to 18 months, citing mitigating factors that included the lack of a criminal record. The judge also noted a “significant cultural gap” between behaviour that is accepted in Canada and in Iran, and the “cultural impact” of changing countries.

Justice William Gorewich is a jackass.

    So, that’s NOT what Iranians look like?

    Take note how Naomi Klein and Susan G Cole refuse to condemn this sanctioned islamic and quranic misogyny just as GLAAD and most Rainbow groups will NOT attack ISIS for tossing gays from roof tops.

    Lets not forget that Justin went to a radical homophobic jew-hatting mosque for votes and then went to a PRIDE parade to tell gays he supports them .

    I think that’s a picture of Jian Ghomeshi, in which case it’s entirely appropriate here.

    Justice William Gorewich should be locked up, preferably in the same cell as a very large & very lonely inmate. That way, he could find out firsthand that there is a “significant cultural gap” between behaviour that is accepted in prison society and in polite society.

    It’s one thing to read that editorial in the paper, but, it’s another thing to see the ridiculous photo they went with online.

    The Toronto Star, which loves all things Islamic, decides to wag a finger at a guy from Iran who beats his wife and feels entitled to sex with his wife whenever he pleases?

    If only someone at the t-Star and Crescent would read a Koran already.

    Koran 4:34 tells Muslim men to hit their disobedient wives…..

    …… and Koran 2:223 says their wives are a ’tilth’ to them, to be approached whenever and how ever they want.

    • His attitude is how our political class thinks and more importantly feels about multiculturalism and Islam.

    What…no Zoomali rapists and murderers wanted to immigrate on that day? The government had to make do with a wife-beating, child-abusing Iranian.

    Perhaps judges should have a points like on a car license. Get a judgement reversed, lose 4 points etc etc. No points, no judging for a year.

    • NOt a bad idea, ours are life appointments

    • WalterBannon

      how about three strikes you are out – get fired for being reversed on appeal

    That is “multiculturalism” for you. When people and nations in the West allow themselves to state that their cultures are indeed superior, a Canadian judge or justice could be able to look at the cultural gap between Canada and Iran, and make a determination that Iranian domestic conduct is barbaric, and make it an exacerbating, instead of “mitigating”, factor with sentencing enhancements.

    This ruling would theoretically not stand in the United States, because every person here is entitled to “equal protection under the law.” Jackass Gorewich inadvertently created two categories of victim, i.e., those who are from “Iranian culture” and those who are not.

    The precedent from such an imbecilic ruling would, using a slippery slope analysis, mean that if an Iranian family were to stone a daughter to death as an “honor killing”, the disparity between Iranian barbarity and Canadian progressiveness compels a lesser sentence for the perpetrator.

    It is seriously time to swing the pendulum back from the insanity of political correctness and multiculturalism. When President Obama refused to call Islamist terrorists “Islamic” but chose the euphemism “extremist”, that should have been the call for US citizens to calumniate the remarks from the White House.

    Similarly, when the President tells the world that if he had a son, he’d look like Trayvon Martin, and sends emissaries from the Justice Department to the funeral of Michael Brown, but Jeh Johnson of Homeland Security doesn’t even know who Kate Steinle is, it is abundantly clear that this administration has let political correctness and multicultural excuse-making for black criminality run amok.

    And this affects the two tiered system for aboriginal sentencing how?

    • Not at all.

      • Frances

        Which may be one of the reasons aboriginal women are so often abused and murdered. Their lives obviously matter less than those of non-aboriginal women, at least when it’s one of “their own” who is the abuser.

    And yet we keep importing these scum into this country.

    Justice William Gorewich should be removed from the bench for incompetence and charged with criminal negligence related to his malfeasance in his job.
