"What kind of politically correct freak opposes a helpline for Muslim women?": Media Party, leftists mock Barbaric Cultural Practices Act

Rebel Staff
 

"The Zero Tolerance for Barbaric Cultural Practices Act" is a new Canadian law banning immigrants who practice polygamy, forced child marriage and honor killings.

Incredibly, 85 NDP MPs voted against this law. They called it "xenophobic."

Now the Conservatives have rolled out an RCMP hot line that's connected with this law.

But the Media Party calls it an "Islamophobic" "racist" "snitch line."

To make the point that such a phone line was unnecessary, the National Post claimed only 10% of the tips to the RCMP's existing anti-terror hotline were legitimate -- but that's still hundreds of tips!

Most 911 calls are probably pointless too. Should we abolish it?

Would these same critics call a traditional help line for battered women a "snitch line" too?

We've had honour killings in Canada. We need a phone line Muslim girls and women can call to get help.

How can people who call themselves "feminists" be against this?

Drew, I guess you missed the explicit statements by Bravo Zulu and others calling for the expulsion of Canadian Muslim citizens.

If you want to see the dangers of Danish “cultural” practices you need to look no further than the photo of Chris Alexander above. Nice blond hair and not overweight, but a facial pallor that belies years of being force fed raw ground beef. How long are we willing to let this sort of thing go on without speaking up?

Mosque here in Edmonton has one entrance for men and another for women, where is the so called feminist left on this sexist hate crime????

Terry Ruden wanting barbaric murderers out of Canada is not asking for all Muslims to be kicked out , try some reality you fear mongering liar

William maybe ask yourself why the MSM overplays the jewish thing while hiding the much miore numerous victims of the Muslims practice
commented 2015-10-10 02:37:57 -0400
William you are speaking of one case in millions and i am cut, i am fine. Sorry but those babies are not opressed and killed for thinking freely. 16 cases since 2000 is hardly some big emergency. We get diseases from hospitals, why not shut them down?

If Harper wants to ban “barbaric cultural practices” maybe he should also include the ultra-orthodox jewish tradition known as “Metzitzah b’peh”. Or perhaps Harper only thinks muslims are guilty of such offences? For those of you who aren’t familiar with “Metzitzah b’peh”, it’s when a rabbi circumcises an infant then proceeds to use his mouth to suck the blood from the wound on the penis. This jewish tradition was in the news several times over the fact that some rabbis in the U.S. have been transmitting herpes to the infants during this ceremony. It is also performed in Canada. I personally think that infant circumcision for traditional or religious reasons is “barbaric” enough but these ultra-orthodox jews take it to a whole new level. Think about it for a moment, if the act of a man cutting off the end of a baby’s penis then using his own mouth to suck the blood from the wound and potentially exposing the baby to disease isn’t a “barbaric cultural practice” then I don’t know what is…

Jay, your point is well taken, and should be cause for sobering reflection (especially for those readers not frequently enough in that state.) However, in opening up a Barbaric Practices Snitch Line, our government is raising the curtain on issue that threatens to tear our fragile country apart. I shall speak but a single word.

I forgot to mention that women staffers in the Muslim Women’s Protection Program should be armed and trained in the use of firearms.
commented 2015-10-09 02:05:39 -0400
Muslim women not only need a barbaric cultural practices help line, they also need a Muslim Women’s Protection Program similar to the Witness Protection Programs that shields court witnesses from organized crime. The Shafia girls were sent back home by a male “Muslim Affairs Officer” and the three sisters and their step mother were murdered by their parents. This agency should be staffed by former Muslim women and take action to remove endangered women from their families regardless of age or marital status. These endangered women should be moved to different parts of the country and be given new identities. Canadian values have to be enforced in Canada. We can not have the Rotherham fiasco happen here in Canada.

Bravo. Benjamin Franklin would agree with you, stating (in today’s lingo), that in order to maintain a democracy, every once in a while, we’ll have to declare a state of civil war, kill a mess of ppl and start over. I’m afraid we’ve let things get so far along that it may be our only route.
What are the flaws in our democracy, and how would we do things differently to avoid this cycle again?
commented 2015-10-08 16:54:54 -0400
LLRFU, I think it began after the Second World War with Canada welcoming Danish immigrants just like any other group. They seemed nice enough, and fit in socially and in the workplace. By the time we realized just what they were up to we were in deep.
Even though there are 200,000 people in Canada who claim Danish background, the threat of revoking citizenship and the RCMP hotline on cultural practises will be a big help. Ultimately, if it comes down to it, send the whole lot of them back to Denmark.

How did we get here? How do we reverse it? And once reversed, keep it from happening again?
commented 2015-10-08 16:17:09 -0400
Dan, thank you for your comments, especially “I think there’s a lot of people getting the same idea…” For too long the majority of us have sat idly by while trends in ‘tolerance’ or ’they’re just like any other immigrants’ have taken us to a dangerous place. The RCMP hot line will go along way in allowing Canadians to report on these dangerous ’cultural practises".

PRINCE KNIGHT;
“THE PROPER WAY OF THINKING"
Bingo.
I take it you’re referring to ‘Newspeak’, and recent constructs like speech-codes in universities, or Hate Speech laws, or political correctness, or Media Party lies and Comments censorship, or public/post secondary school social engineering, or having to watch what you say (or think) at work, or having to watch what you say or write away from work, or the regular occurrence of Peepers (P.P.P.R.s) in conversation, or being marginalized for an opinion contrary to the status quo, or any number of other THOUGHT CRIME infractions imposed upon us (some of us) by the Marxist cultural elites and their fellow travelers?
I think there’s a lot of people getting the same idea…

should have read ‘dangerous’ not ‘danerous’ — Freudian slip I guess
commented 2015-10-08 14:56:59 -0400
It’s funny, but if you ask Danish women if they find these danerous practises ‘barbaric’ most of them will say they are no big deal and that is just the way it has always been done. That is why I think the “help” line is better called a “tip” line. It will allow Canadians to report tips on what their Danish neighbours are up to when they think no-one is watching.

Imagine the outcry if a helpline for native women was ridiculed.

Naomi Lakritz, Calgary Herald writes a bizarre article that essentially claims taxing income trusts is the same type of barberism as honour killings. Another apologist for terrorists and murderers.

BZ: so, would you oppose this initiative, because in your eyes in makes it easier for Muslim women to live in Canada?

My wife works for a community crisis center. When I asked her about this (we rarely talk “shop” at home for obvious reasons of domestic repose) she told me that asking for such a service was promoted by crisis center execs and social workers alike -reason being they are seeing exponential increases in calls about horrendous domestic abuse from certain cultural minority communities – mostly from neighbours or friends of the alleged abuse victim, because in many cases the principle in the abuse case fears for their life if they had official intervention. Breaking this cultural exclusivity is a matter of breaking ties with the family and living alone in fear of retribution. They are seeing many calls from teen age girls who have a school mate in these oppressive abusive family situations – it is hard to act when there is only this hear say evidence – but they see the physical toll in ER where the battered are treated for “falling down the stairs”.

It’s a truly progressive move to stop this tribalistic domestic oppression/violence – perhaps if they didn’t use the trigger word “culture” in the legislation it may be acceptable to proggy reactionaries who confuse their confused cultural empathies with true progress – as an offering to the god of social justice, I remind these justice warriors that this law affects Mormons and other wonder bread polygamous religious cults from abusing women and children as well.

Some great comments on here!!
Jason, for starters, like all Lefty’s, you got your numbers wrong. It wasn’t 10% of 266, the 266 was the number of solid tips. The 266 WAS the 10%! Knowing a number of Muslims, I think a lot of them will appreciate this line. See Jason, you’re assuming it would only be overzealous frightened Whites that would use or misuse it. But I know lots of Muslims that will LOVE to have a number they can call. In fact, it’s these Muslims fighting against radicalization that have been pushing for it!! At my gym, myself and a couple non-practicing Muslims had to talk a guy down from going over seas to fight on the wrong side. If we weren’t successful the tip line would’ve been useful.

I’m re-posting the link posted by Bravo. It looks like the women of Slutwalk will finally get to be the victims they want to be!!

A few years ago a group of Muslims in Ontario petitioned the McGuinty government to allow them to set up sharia courts to hear cases which involve Muslims. The liberal in the Liberals seemed to be going along with it. Opinion poles showed that most Muslims did not want sharia law and Muslim women wanted the protection of Canadian courts, which is understandable. Women have few rights under sharia law and can be beaten by their husbands, legally. The McGuinty government declined consent. However the world wide struggle to have sharia law recognized continues. Its’ latest manifestation could be the ongoing niqab debate. Accommodating the niqab in citizenship ceremonies could be a first step to that end in Canada. Wars are won by winning battles, Mulcair and Trudeau have already surrendered..

Ken Waters said, "We are all familiar with violent jihad but less familiar with the non-violent version. "

That is because in the leftie waters of denial that there are terrorists that have and will come to Canada there is no such thing as a non-violent version. If they deny that there have even been terrorist attacks and attempts in Canada as most do, then they certainly will not admit that some are trying to change our culture in a non-violent manner. - – - – -

On the topic of the helpline, it is inconceivable that anyone would oppose the existence of helpline if it helped even one person. You would have to be an uncaring person. Aren’t lefties always the ones claiming again and again that they are the only ones that care about people and the righties are the mean uncaring selfish capitalists? So why are the lefties here in opposition to the helpline. It is a very socialist thing to do.

Interesting comment on the Nazis. Kind of like what your man harps did here – http://news.nationalpost.com/news/canada/harpers-ndp-didnt-support-war-against-hitler-prompts-twitter-history-lesson, I’m sure its okay for him though?
Is there any data to support success in this snitch line? Strip away everyone’s civil liberties in the hopes we will ferret out a potential threat? Isn’t that what csis, the rcmp and the police already get paid to do? Did I say let terrorists run free. My point Vlad is at what cost? and what are us wasps willing to give up in the fight? Well nothing because we don’t get racially profiled. Just like police carding the deck will always be stacked. This my friends is the ultimate nanny state. Compliments of Harper.

It’s strange how the niqab is now portrayed by the media as a symbol for human rights and religious freedoms rather than as a symbol of oppression as most see it.

Clearly the woman who deliberately wore a niqab to a citizenship ceremony had an agenda. She had no respect for the tradition of the ceremony or the institution she invaded. Who are her financial backers for her court cases and what is their motivation? We are all familiar with violent jihad but less familiar with the non-violent version. The goals however are the same, the defeat of western civilization and the establishment of an Islamic world government.

Who owns this issue, the Conservative government or the women in the niqab? Would it be an election issue if the Liberals and NDP had sided with the government and the majority of Canadians instead of accommodating this symbol of oppression. The German people over time accommodated the Nazis and look how that turned out

JASON R – there’s risk on both sides of the discussion.

Your choice is obvious – let the terrorists run free so that you own personal fear of being inconvenienced due to a “false alarm” isn’t triggered.

That’s called poor judgement on your part. Think before you speak.

Jason give your head a shake. How many of those tips need to pan out for you to be satisfied? What percentage of them need to lead the RCMP to a terrorist cell or to stop an act of terrorism before it happens? 90%? 50%, 10%? 1%? . It ten thousand tips, called in to the hot line prevent only one act of terrorism, save one life, maybe even yours, that makes the entire programme worth while. If not to you, then maybe that 1% if terrorist acts should include one of your family members?

I live less than a mile from Kingston Mills Locks where those poor girls were drowned by their brave, honourable father and brother. I was probably comfortably asleep while these brave men pushed he car with the girls in it, into the cold waters of that lock to die alone and unloved. How many of these acts should the RCMP be able to stop before you are satisfied with the fact that Canadians feel enough concern about each other that they will try to stop this sort of act straight from the dark ages?

And by the way, it is generally accepted that the first person to use the Nazis as a justification in a debate loses. Clearly you do not understand anything about Nazis, fascistists or how they operated.

I can only imagine that your Sikh neigbours were huddled talking about the clot who lives next door.
