In its illustrious 188-year history, Upper Canada College has produced four premiers, four Toronto mayors, seven chief justices, six lieutenant governors and has alumni as members of the Order of Canada.

    Why would they ask that bottom feeder Bernie for his opinion – and of course bottom feeder Bernie didn’t disappoint – he has to make sure he adds “IslaMOphobia” to his response on antisemitism. STFU Bernie.

    As far as the antisemitic incident – the movie “School Ties” dealt with the issue back in 1992…so this event didn’t surprise me in the least

      Yes, the choice of ‘go-to’ Jew was kind of curious to say the least, but don’t forget that Bernie spent decades burnishing his bonafides as THE voice of the Canadian Jewish community until he was so cruelly and heartlessly pushed off his perch by the PTBs. So he is probably a permanent fixture in everybody’s Rolodex.

      But I don’t agree with your comparing this incident to the film which dealt with an incident that happened in 1950, Demographics have changed substantially since then. Today’s students are less likely to be pure WASP than they were more than a half century ago. They are more likely to be the sons or grandsons of mixed marriages (Jewish/Wasp). Hell, even John Tory has a Jewish bubbe. I t’s 2017 and other forces are at play.

    • He is such a sick joke.

        He’s a professional Jew, so that is to be expected at least in my view.

    Since there is definitely a rise in antisemitism all over the world and Islamophobia incidents are usually fake in order to make it seem that they are an underclass.

    The reality is that having fear about a fake religion, that is resulting in killings in the name of that fake religion, is completely rational. There is no such thing as Islamophobia. Phobias are irrational fears.

    • Alain

      There are Jews and then there are professional Jews. Of course there are also plenty of JINOs.

      • dukestreet

        Yes, that’s true.

    The smug elite Whites have gotten away with acting oh so tolerant as they hijacked the racism issues to point at all of those other white people as bigots.
    But they live in wealthy white area and don’t want Ni**ers and muslims living on their street.
    Liberals are good at deflection and know what to say to minorities that incites hatred for Canada and whites which they turn into Votes by insisting they will fight these bigots and bring in Job Quotas and jail the racists via the HRC’s.
    Liberals actually see immigrants and refugees as ignorant peons to be exploit while throwing money at they to stay the HELL out of their White neighbourhood unless they come in to do the Gardening or be the nanny .

    UCC was always anti-semitic.

    They just learned to voice it when there were no Jews in the room.

      I tend to make a difference between those who harbour nasty thoughts about Jews, and those who seek to exterminate Jews. Discriminating against them in professions (preventing them from working in those professions) is also not acceptable. But as for feelings and thoughts that have no bearing, I can live with that sort of prejudice. Just saying.
