M-103 could morph into something unrecognizable

“Too often they begin with well-meaning intentions. Yet once they get into the hands of politically correct bureaucrats, Parliamentary committees and human rights commissioners, they morph into something unrecognizable.”

  • Observer

    Oh, it’ll be recognizable. It’ll be sharia law.

  • FactsWillOut

    Anyone who think that M-103 and hate-crime laws have anything to do with “well meaning intentions” is an idiot.

      Comment of the Day.

    • That is how these things are packaged and that is the carrot for the ovine masses.

  • Jaedo Drax

    Why did the liberals vote down the conservative motion that was fundamentally the same as M-103 but did not include the word ‘islamophobia’?

    • Observer

      Because then it wouldn’t be an Islamic blasphemy law as intended.

      • FactsWillOut

        It’s not a Bill or a Law, it’s a Motion.
        Or as I like to call it, a dry-run for totalitarians.

        • Justin St.Denis

          You’re on fire today! Bingo!

      • Reader

        This is the Liberal motion in Parliament for a study that is clearly intended to lead to changes in the Criminal Code or Human Rights regulations and it certainly is meant to censor criticism of Islam.

    • Watchman

      Because it would not lock down the muslim voting bloc unless they specifically mention their muslim constituents as needing special care and attention.

    Mark it now 2017 the start of the end for Canada.

      I think it really started with the coronation of Turdeau The First.

    Didn’t somebody somewhere once say that the road to hell was paved with good intentions?

    • WalterBannon

      the road to hell was paved with socialist’s motions

        .. and their victims.

    “. . .The truth is, words matter – both ways. So if Islamophobia is ill-defined, we should worry this motion could eventually lead to a real limiting of free speech.”

    Words matter, especially in our system of laws even down to the placement of a comma or the addition or deletion of words such as “the”.

    Perhaps many of those “educated” in our loosey-goosey school system over the last half century where creative spelling abounds and words mean anything one wants the to mean, the refusal to define ‘Islamophobia’ is just fine and dandy. It’s certainly going to be interesting to watch the look on their faces when they discover that The Sharia has swept aside our laws like a tsunami.

      Out of spite, perhaps, I’d like to think that at least a few of them will at some point recognize the scale of their stupidity. But I rather doubt it. Most will probably just shrug and convert. Our society is already dead.

      • Watchman

        Politicians might admit to the dangers of unrestricted muslim immigration, but in private and only with trusted individuals, fearful that disclosure would mean the permanent enmity of the muslim voting bloc. Unfortunately or fortunately I was one of those trusted individuals.

        In many western countries, the muslim proportion of the population is larger than the margin of victory in many elections. Essentially for many countries, you can’t win if the muslim ummah (all-sect community) votes collectively against you. Only if you are in power can you achieve your political goals, so politicians believe their first priority is to be elected by any means whatsoever, and if this means pandering to ethnic minorities, they will pander to these ethnic minorities.

  • Jay Harper

    It doesn’t need to ‘Morph,’ its already a violation of our freedom of speech and an attempt to silence dissent.

    M-103 is the camel’s nose under the tent. Eventually the whole camel creeps in.

    • Watchman

      The M103 motion will be used as the proof that anti-islamophobia has bipartisan political support for future legislation. The muslim community will point to calls for any restrictions on immigration, or any criticism of Shari’a law, or any outbursts of anger after a muslim attack atrocity as proof that just a condemnation against islamophobia is insufficient. They will claim that this M103 motion must be translated into real action against islamophobia, and will demand laws against islamophobic speech. The neck of the camel has now entered the tent, and the body is straining against the fabric to gain entrance. At no stage will any definition of islamophobia be required or to allow the words ‘truth’ or ‘actual injury’ be used in its definition.

      • Tooth&Claw

        A cynical view. I hope Canadians fight this tooth and nail. The rug is being pulled out from under us. Islam is an ideology, not a race of people. If any one sees fit to criticize it they should be able to freely, just as anyone is able to criticize the government or its policies. It should never have special status restricting it.

        • Watchman

          Islam is a chameleon. When it’s advantageous for islam to be a race, it is a race, when it needs to be a religion it is a religion, when it needs to be a culture, it is a culture, when it need to be a system of laws it is a system of laws, when it needs to be monolithic it is, and when it needs to be a diverse set of views it is that too. Otherwise, islam is claimed to be none of those things when it is advantageous to claim it isn’t.

          In short islam is the embodiment of the “No true Scotsman” fallacy when you try to pin it down on anything that shows it in a bad light. “No true muslim” would do anything bad in English, and “Every true muslim” in Arabic for the same beliefs and actions.

          • Tooth&Claw

            I think you mean muslims are chameleons. Islam is primarily the example of Mo. Mo was a bad man. End.

          • Watchman

            Sorry, you are correct. Islam is a just toxic ideology. Muslims are the ones that believe in it, protect it, promote it, and kill and die for it. Without muslims, Islam is just a rabid set of recitations.

          The ugly tid-bits of M-103 is being swept under the prayer rug….

  • Ron MacDonald

    Could! Guaranteed it will, look at what has happened to the human rights legislation.

  • Maggat

    “M-103 could morph into something unrecognizable”. Could? It most definitely will, count on it!

  • reidjr

    There was a recent ep of the Social on Ctv that said Sharia Law is peaceful.

    “Too often they begin with well-meaning intentions.”

    I don’t give them credit for well meaning intentions.
