Salim Mansur: Bill 59 betrays Muslims who chose to live in Quebec because they valued a free society

The need to police free speech is an incorrigible trait of the totalitarian mindset.

This trait is reflected in open society among those who seek to coercively limit freedoms that are the cornerstones of liberal democracy. As Jean-François Revel, the once widely celebrated French philosopher, noted, this trait is the “totalitarian urge” that lurks among us.

    Bill 59 seems to infer that Muslims are predisposed to violence and terrorist to the point that they are prone to jihad attacks to behead people or become suicide bombers if offended.

    It’s the new Liberal Soft-Bigotry for the Lowered Expectations from muslims as we also see for natives, Blacks and gays.

    Canada prevented the fascists Nazi’s from occupying our soil to dictate what we could say and think. 70 years since WW2 the islamofascists freely entered
    Canada by Plane or Car and are slowly imposing sharia laws blasphemy laws without firing one shot thanks to the dolts in the HRC’s and brain dead Liberals that have never read a quran.

    No, it lurks among THEM.

    Couillard and Frémont are morons. Couillard worked as a medical consultant for a couple of years in Saudi Arabia.

    He can only be doing this because he’s on the Saudi payroll.

    Also, I’d read somewhere ( Point de Bascule?) that Couillard sits on some security committee that is authorized to look at top secret documents.
