A Slap in the Face to Democracy: Canada’s “Anti-Islamophobia” Motion

Growing concern in Canada over liberal policies benefitting Muslim extremists sheds light on why an “anti-Islamophobia” bill — proposed in the wake of the deadly January 17 Quebec City mosque attack and approved by parliament on March 23 — spurred such heated controversy there.

Motion 103, tabled by Liberal Party MP Iqra Khalid, a Muslim representing Mississauga-Erin Mills, calls on the Canadian government to “develop a whole-of-government approach to reducing or eliminating systemic racism and religious discrimination including Islamophobia.” Because the bill makes no mention of any other religious group targeted by bigots, it was opposed by most Conservative Party politicians and a majority of the public.

  • That was the whole point of Motion 103: to slap Canadians in the face.

      Actually it was to lay the foundations of the anti-blasphemy laws that are going to built on this when the report that M-103 commissioned finally comes in. Expect this report to say that muslims feel afraid because of their religion and thus all criticism of islam must be prevented. Even if the language of the new law includes all religions, it will only be used against people criticising muslim beliefs and practices.

      • That is exactly its purpose.

        Soon M-103, through the power of the state, will gleefully criminalize criticizing the most benevolent , most merciful, most gracious, most tolerant, most progressive & pragmatic of ideologies ever to grace humanity . Blasphemers of izzlam will provoke the righteous wrath of virtuous apparatchiks at our HRCs eager to summon the jack-boots of the state to punish such sacrilegious effrontery .
        Beware all you H8ters, thou shalt not take izzzlam’s name in vain , CAPICHE ~!?!

  • Islamophobia is short for Islamofascismphobia.

    If everyone just ignored it, it would be rendered meaningless.

    The pco weasels at Queen’s Park had no difficulty selling out en masse on an identical motion when ordered to do so by Patrick of Arabia.

    • Traitors?

      Since when did they offer allegiance to Canada?

      After this, Iqra Khalid will join the other token brown people on the Liberal back bench. Calling it now.

    I have no phobia about the sheep shaggers, I’m well aware of what they represent and will say what I believe is the truth. Anybody who voted lieberal is a suck ass fool.
