‘Buy Only From Muslims’ Is Not Discriminatory in Canada

Unbelievable. A call to “buy only from Muslims” is not discriminatory? Then is anything discriminatory at all? If this isn’t discriminatory, nothing is. But you can imagine the speed with which the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal would rule “discrimination” if Jews said “Buy only from Jews” or Christians said “Buy only from Christians.” But Jews and Christians wouldn’t do that, and when Muslims do, they get the full support of the Canadian government. Trudeau is racing Canada down the path to total submission.

‘Sensitivity Readers’ Are the New Thought Police, And They Threaten More Than Novelists

Malmo police: refugee crime wave is out of control

Much of the violence originates in the city’s Rosengard district, which has been labeled the “most notorious refugee ghetto” in Sweden. Over 80 percent of Rosengard’s residents are migrants and less than 40 percent of the district’s residents have jobs.

In an open letter, a desperate Sinteus wrote: “I can assure you that the police in Malmo are doing everything we can for suspected perpetrators to be held accountable. But we cannot do it on our own. We depend on you, and your witness statements, to solve these violent crimes. Therefore I appeal now to you: Help us.”
