Quebec legislature adopts sharia blasphemy motion condemning ‘Islamophobia’

The motion condemned Islamophobia and incitement of hatred and violence toward Muslim Quebecers, in particular Syrian refugees.


Yale Women: Renaming Calhoun College for Feminist Icon ‘Perpetuates White Supremacy’

Not everyone is happy about Yale’s decision to rename Calhoun College from a slaveowner and white supremacist to a feminist icon, Rear Adm. Grace Murray Hopper. The loudest outcry comes not from anyone wishing to preserve history, but from the Yale Women’s Center, which claims that choosing a white woman ignores Yale’s history of slavery and perpetuates white supremacy.

The university organization is displeased that Yale chose the accomplished alumna and computer science pioneer instead of a woman of color. On Facebook (via Yale Daily News), the center said the choice of Hopper doesn’t reflect the issues and values raised by Yale students.

In the self-contradicting post, the center said that while they were “happy with the decision,” and hoped Hopper would inspire future generations of women in STEM education, it wasn’t good enough. They declared it an “act of whitewashing” that “silenced” student voices.


Trump Tower a ‘beacon’ of controversy in Vancouver as grand opening nears

Vancouver’s Trump International Hotel and Tower has transformed into a potent symbol of Trump’s candidacy and presidency, observers say. Protests over U.S. policy inevitably end up on its doorstep and provincial and city politicians have said the Trump name doesn’t represent Vancouver.

“It’s more than a beacon of racism,” said Coun. Kerry Jang, who has urged the developer to drop the Trump brand. “It’s a beacon of intolerance. It’s a beacon of sexism and bullying. That’s just not Vancouver.”


‘California is a nation, not a state’: A fringe movement wants a break from the U.S.

“I pledge allegiance, to the flag, of an independent California,” Geoff Lewis said as he stood in a glass-walled conference room adorned with California’s grizzly-bear flag and a sign reading “California is a nation, not a state.”


Refugee pictures show difference between Canada and Trump’s America

Donald Trump has struck a hard line on Syrian and other refugees from mostly Muslim countries, trying to impose a blanket ban on those seeking asylum (although his controversial travel ban has been suspended).

This is alongside a tough rhetoric against migrants, even floating the idea of using the national guard to ’round up’ illegal migrants.

So these photos, showing a group of African refugees jumping away from US border patrol into the arms of the Royal Canadian Mountain Police, may not be such a surprise.


Obama-linked activists have a ‘training manual’ for protesting Trump

Organizing for Action, a group founded by Obama and featured prominently on his new post-presidency website, is distributing a training manual to anti-Trump activists that advises them to bully GOP lawmakers into backing off support for repealing ObamaCare, curbing immigration from high-risk Islamic nations, and building a border wall.


‘Take them in!’ Massive Barcelona march urges Madrid to welcome refugees

Up to half a million activists have flooded the streets of Barcelona demanding the government in Madrid lives up to the EU-set refugee quota and welcome thousands more of asylum seekers into the country.

“Enough Excuses! Take Them In Now!” and “No More Deaths, Open The Borders!” slogans have been heard since 4 pm in Barcelona when hundreds of thousands gathered in support of the refugees.


NPR’s Hinojosa: ‘There Should Be An Attempt’ To Have No One Show Up to a Trump Presser

Hinojosa said that the mainstream media keep sending “top talent, to be completely insulted and disrespected by the president of the United States. It begins to feel like we are in an abusive relationship, and that we’re putting ourselves out there to be attacked.”


Meryl Streep: I’m under attack by Nazi ‘brownshirts’ since I criticized Trump

“It’s terrifying to put the target on your forehead, and it sets you up for all sorts of attacks and armies of brownshirts and bots and worse, and the only way you can do it is to feel you have to,” Streep said in address to attendees of the Human Rights Campaign’s Saturday evening awards gala in New York City.

    Proposed generic headline until their shock and confusion abates:

    “Leftist MSM Concentrates On Moronic Anti Trump Virtue Signaling

    Not that anyone outside their playpen really cares.

    Gee, who’d a thunk it, you attack the president of the US and you wonder why he wont appreciate and support your attempts at undermining his administration? What a shock. Fucking leftist assholes.

      Hollyweird seems like …. Sociopath / Leftist Leftist / Sociopath – probably interchangeable. Hollyweirdos don’t allow refugees to live in their neighbourhoods.

      “Top talent”. Modest, aren’t they?

      • Blacksmith

        You noticed that too, I suspect our definition of.their talent level may put them a bit lower eh?

      • Minicapt

        As opposed to the talents who are bottoms.

      So she wants her fellow leeches to boycott press conferences and leave the field to Fox, Breitbart and other authentic news organizations? No one will miss these poseurs.

        Sound like a good plan to me.

      Bloodbath or mudbath (draining the swamp).

  • Liberal Progressive

    Thank goodness the Quebec Liberal government had the Quebec National Assembly pass that Islamophobia law to protect Syrian and Iraqi Muslims from those violent Yazidis and Christians!

    • mauser 98

      why is it not Quebec Provincial Assembly ?

      • Liberal Progressive

        Because that is what they have always called themselves, “Assemblée nationale du Québec”.

        • mauser 98

          ??…so they are a nation , not a province?

          • canminuteman

            Yes, because a nation in a blood based thing, not a political based thing. Some nations line up with political borders some don’t. Just because
            They were conquered by the British didn’t mean they stopped being a nation. What will stop them being a nation is important millions of peace loving Muslims.

          • mauser 98

            then they should stop taking reparations..oops… i mean transfer payments from Alberta…$$$…

          • canminuteman

            Well, what Parizeau said after the last referendum is true. If not for the “ethnic vote”, Quebec would be it’s own separate country again. And if we are stupid enough to line up to give them money, they would have to be idiots to not take it.

          • FactsWillOut

            Agreed.
            The Quebecois are healthily xenophobic, and they will soon vote in the PQ and get rid of the globalist libtard party.

          • Millie_Woods

            Let’s get one thing straight. People are lining up to give the québécois ‘other people’s money’. Not their own.

          • canminuteman

            More appropriately our elected leaders are lining up to give them our money, but if we keep electing them, they will keep doing it.

          • Millie_Woods

            It doesn’t matter who we elect. Canada is overdue for a *serious* realignment, one it may not survive. The country I grew up in, knew and loved is long gone and has been replaced by a European-style socialist ‘post-nation state’. I pray I live long enough to see that fucking bag of shit choke on those words.

    I didn’t check out the other Metro UK “report” but I see they had one pushing this weekend’s Big Lie that Trump said (literally) there was a big terrorist attack in Sweden last night when he actually said, “Here’s the bottom line. We’ve got to keep our country safe. You look at what’s happening. We’ve got to keep our country safe. You look at what’s happening in Germany, you look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this. Sweden. They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible. You look at what’s happening in Brussels. You look at what’s happening all over the world. Take a look at Nice. Take a look at Paris. We’ve allowed thousands and thousands of people into our country and there was no way to vet those people. There was no documentation. There was no nothing. So we’re going to keep our country safe.”
