Halifax woman receives note about ‘rape gangs’ coming to her neighbourhood

Halifax resident Laura Valadka says she was stopped by a stranger on Sunday night and given a troubling note just outside her downtown apartment building.

“(He) tapped me on the shoulder, handed me a piece of paper and said ‘this is for you.’ I opened it and it said some truly vile things in there,” Laura Valadka told CTV Atlantic.

“Rape gangs – coming to a neighbourhood near you,” the note states. Upset, she hurried inside her building and called police.

…The note suggested a search for the phrase “rape gangs” on the website Gatestone Institute. Searching for variations of the phrase yielded more than 800 results on the website.

The website posts mainstream news stories and content that some may consider extreme. Some of those articles are critical of immigration, particularly from Muslim-majority countries.

Muslim Rape Gangs are a very real danger and the recipient would be wise to heed the advice, though passing a note to a stranger is in my view a pretty creepy way to educate people. Gatestone is a well regarded organization and does a terrific job covering Islamist violence.
