Canada: “Leading expert” insists that jihad “terrorist travellers” can be rehabilitated

University of Waterloo Sociology professor Lorne Dawson thinks jihadists can be rehabilitated because they are “disillusioned and traumatized.” Dawson displays an appalling insensitivity to the millions of victims who have experienced the real trauma of abuses, torture and murder inflicted upon them by jihadists.

Islam does not share our way of thinking, values or worldview, call it what you will. Liberals fail to understand that to our peril.

    You had me at sociology.

    • Heh;)

    • I don’t know if he’s a socialist-atheist type, but it’s always been their position that religious people in general can/should be “rehabilitated”. They view religion in general as a “mental illness” that can be cured — including Christianity and others. And there’s no better example today of religious people looking like they’re simply mentally deranged than Islam, at least from within the Liberal cultural bubble.

      The problem is people like Dawson are conveniently skipping the violence and the political motivation in Political Islam, which includes every vile and deceptive practice in the book in order to achieve supremacy. Including pretending to be “rehabilitated” if necessary. I mean if peace-loving Christians have been willing to die under torture rather than renounce their faith, or willing to lose everything rather than submit to psychological trickery and the illicit behavioural modification methods of the Left to “rehabilitate” them from Christianity; Then, why would Dawson assume that he would have better success with violent/religious politically-motivated Muslims or their political “fellow travellers” in the West? Of which, Dawson already seems to identify with the latter.

    When we call Lorne a ‘Miss Leading Expert’ we already know that he probably identifies as male, but I would not call him a man, doing manly things and doing a man’s job in defending the women of his country.

      Needs to be arrested for sedition and treason. But won’t be because socialists of all stripes are above the laws.

      I have a Masters Degree in it. My thesis (book) is an oral history. I couldn’t stand the Marxist bulls*t, but not all classes were about Marx or taught by Marxists, many, but not all. Still a waste of time degree that was a lot of work and does not prepare you for a job. If I had to do it again, I would have gotten a Masters in social work or library science.

      • My degree is also in the Social Sciences, but I actually had specific jobs in mind at the time. I wouldn’t touch today with a ten-foot pole.

        As far as “social work”, I dunno if you’ve kept up with the times. A buddy of mine in the U.S. who experienced an “intervention” from local social workers over a family dispute (I would consider it an “in-house” matter and nobody’s business — my buddy punched out his 16-year-old, 6′ 4″ 300 lbs. gang-leader son for threatening the family) actually found a minature camera and microphone planted by the social workers in the light fixture above his kitchen table!

          Oh, I’m not implying that social work is a pleasant job, but it’s a job and if you can work for the government it’s a secure job with benefits, sick days, vacation. It all turned out fine though 🙂

    This individual has no clue about how these people think or read any pertinent information on it, see: Nicolai Sennels.

    If there’s so many of these radical jihadi fuckheads that you can’t arrest them all, just like nazi’s in the 1940’s, then it’s war and you kill them. This Lilly-livered liberal would have bent over for hitler just as he does for islamic terrorism. Make no mistake he is a mouthpiece for imam trudeau’s deradicalization programing.

    In all likelihood many of them are rapists and murderers. They need punishment before rehabilitation.

      They need to be executed!

    Professor Lorne Dawson is a f*cking idiot!

    Since the professor wants us to play Russian roulette, it is only fair that we demand he reciprocate.

    Another academic who has educated himself to imbecility.

    “So the final conclusion would surely be that whereas other civilizations have been brought down by attacks of barbarians from without, ours had the unique distinction of training its own destroyers at its own educational institutions, and then providing them with facilities for propagating their destructive ideology far and wide, all at the public expense. Thus did Western Man decide to abolish himself, creating his own boredom out of his own affluence, his own vulnerability out of his own strength, his own impotence out of his own erotomania, himself blowing the trumpet that brought the walls of his own city tumbling down, and having convinced himself that he was too numerous, labored with pill and scalpel and syringe to make himself fewer. Until at last, having educated himself into imbecility, and polluted and drugged himself into stupefaction, he keeled over–a weary, battered old brontosaurus–and became extinct.”

  • Perhaps this desk-occupier can provide examples from the many, many studies he’s done?


    Dawson interviewed twenty people who were already fighting for ISIS:

    He also is a part of an organisation funded by the Liberals:

    This man is trying to be full of crap.

    Of curse you can rehabilitate them, by a fiering squad for example.
