Vagueness of ‘Islamophobia’ is what makes it troublingly all-inclusive

Iqra Khalid Muslim 5th columnist

The House of Commons Heritage Committee hearings have already begun on M103.

The controversial motion introduced by Liberal MP Iqra Khalid has had a somewhat interesting trajectory.

When first introducing the motion, Khalid mentioned that she was pushed in school and that some fellow student’s comments – “Go home, you Muslim” – made her feel uncomfortable.

But upon introducing the motion, she claimed she received numerous threats and read out many of them, including “Kill her and be done with it”, “Why don’t you get out of my country?” and “We will burn down your mosques, draper head Muslim.”

  • It is criticism if Islamism.

    There you go.

    Allah made us the rulers over all kafur! Even our women are worth more than any kafur.

      You are full of روث جمل –

      “allah” = murderer, rapist, pedophile, warmongering liar!

      “allah” = SATAN!

      DEUS VULT!

      Lan Astaslem I WILL NOT SUBMIT!

        I stand with you!

        Allah is a f*lse g*d. Islam is heR-es-y. Muh-ah-mud is a pervert.

        I WILL NOT SUBMIT. MY GREAT DANE WILL NOT SUBMIT. And you’d have to get through her to get to me.

        DEUS VULT!

    The fact that she is trying to outlaw criticism of islam, is i think, what sticks in most Canadians craws. Canadians have been free to call out the catholic church for their
    miss deeds, but God forbid anybody point out what a POS mohamad was.

    If this were in the U.S., vagueness would be grounds for striking down the law. For an American law to withstand a vagueness challenge, it must convey fair notice of violation to persons of ordinary intelligence and establish clear standards of enforcement.

      Too radical a concept for the GWN

    Well, IF any of her anecdotal testimonials ARE true, I kinda side with the one that says, “Go home” especially since in coming here, she has taken to changing long-established “Canadian” law now that she’s here, WITH power … not to get thicker skin, but to strip “Canadians” of their’s.

    With or without M-103 – Sharia law is already here in Canada. A Muslim judge in Durham region sentenced a man to five month’s in prison for writing “No more Muslims” on bus stop bench. His acts are tantamount to the acts of a graffiti artist – I doubt anyone has ever been sent to prison for five months for graffiti.

    The vagueness is intentional, of course. It’s a feature, not a bug.

    What makes the Heritage Committee’s study of Islamophobia a threat to Canadians is that in the end the Trudeau Liberals will legislate Islamic Blasphemy Law.

    To paraphrase George Orwell “Those who can control what you can say control what you can think. Those who can control what you can think control your freedom.”

    If you claim not to know what Islamophobia is, that only goes to prove you are Islamophobic!

    Poor widdle angel, I feel so sorry for her. But, she is extracting her revenge.
