Father Raymond J. de Souza: Who, exactly, are the dogs in Mayor Nenshi’s imagination?

Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi doesn’t like the dog whistles in the federal election campaign. Who is whistling and who are the dogs?

“Dog-whistle politics” is what they call it, and it is not a lovely term. It comes from the world of campaign consultants, and that is not a lovely world.

Dog whistles cannot be heard by ordinary people, as their ultrasonic waves are too high frequency for the human ear to detect. Dogs can hear them though, and so the dog whistle signals the dogs in a way that other people cannot hear.

    Nenshi is engaging in projection, a favourite tell of the left because they suspect others of their own base motives.
    I wonder if he still beats his wife.
    Or that mistress who had his black baby.

      Do Ismailis fuck goats the way Sunni and Shiites do?

      Interesting question? Do muslims have the psychological makeup necessary for “projection”? Do supremacists project? Islam is deceit: is deceit the same thing as projection? Muslims are totalitarians, they do not think like us.

        I’d say they do.
        If they call you a cheater it’s because they cheat.

        • moraywatson

          But everything they do is justified/willed by allah? They don’t cheat, because infidels cannot be cheated.

            Yes, and that is also consistent with the leftist maxim that the end always justifies the means except when they can use the method of the means, like waterboarding, as a cudgel against their enemies.

          See the very interesting link below. The psychology of muslim criminals.

            I’ve read this article before and it confirmed many things I have seen working with them, as a subordinate, as a co-worker and as their boss.

    As a self-identifying Muslim, Nenshi of course hears “dog whistles” everywhere … and as a Leftard, Nenshi hears them very loudly.

    There is an insanity in Calgary that elected Nenshi; a self-blinding ignorance of what it means to be a Muslim, whether you’re from the behead-them-angry or behead-them-gently brand of Islam makes no difference to the beheadee.

      Too bad he’s not actually a Muslim: only the Ahmadis think the Ahmadis are Muslim. They’re just about the Mormons of Islam.

      • occupant 9

        Well, Nenshi *thinks* he’s a Muslim; who would WANT to identify as Muslim? That’s what causes pause when considering the Ahmadis; they don’t have a different Koran, or a different mass-murdering, looting, rapist and pedophilic prophet to emulate.

        Furthermore, the Ahmadis run interference as if they are a specific sect that specializes in taqiyya, presenting a soft and gentle Islam to us for our guard to drop. In the end they are apologists for Islam whether they have clout within Islam or not.

    Just another delusional leftist. Nothing to see here folks. I used to have a lot of respect for Albertan’s. First the fools in Calgary voted in this imbecile, then they gave themselves the STD of an NDP government. Common sense is lost west of Saskatchewan.

  • Why do Muslims hate dogs?

    • Clausewitz

      They’re jealous of superior intellects.

    I do not know if Mayor Nenshi is employing the right tactics. I was channel-surfing on the weekend, and Nenshi was on the warpath against Harper over the niqab. Nenshi got a fawning review with the corrupt Wendy Mesley, on the CBC National (nothing new there). But CTV News tried to give a biased report favoring Nenshi, but this establishment news outlet interspersed shots of Nenshi with shots of women strutting about in niqabs. Surely these shots backfire against Islamic niqabs, and favour the Conservatives.

    As long as people keep this issue alive, it is all to the good.
