Assault double standard in Canada? Charges depend on who’s wearing the hijab

David MenziesMission Specialist

It was recently reported that a Muslim woman was attacked at a London, Ontario supermarket. Apparently another woman, unknown to the shopper, spat on the victim, punched her several times and grabbed her hair while trying to remove her hijab.

This ugly incident is definitely assault and whoever perpetrated this crime should do some time behind bars. Randomly assaulting a Muslim for being a Muslim is stupid and wrong.

Having said that, I found it curious how downright giddy the progressives became over this story. It’s also been fascinating to see how much coverage this incident has generated. At long last, the leftwing media has some legitimate Islamophobia to report!

Though the assault was fairly minor given what cops have to deal with on a daily basis, the media coverage was over the top. On the day the assault occurred, the story was the lead news item on several TV and radio stations across the country.

All of which struck me as odd in light of an experience I had almost five years ago.

Watch as I relate the story of what happened to me when I was assaulted by an angry woman wearing a hijab in Yonge-Dundas Square on an otherwise enjoyable outing with my then nine year old son.

Is there a double standard in Canada when it comes to assault, religion and politics?

You be the judge.

As far as other hate crimes perpetrated against Muslims, to my knowledge I have not heard of any suspects being taken. Could it be these hate crimes are manufactured so that the Muslims can play the victim. No, they wouldn’t do something like set a Mosque ablaze, as if some hateful, white arson did it, so they can illicit a favorable response from the community, that will bend over backwards to demonstrate how supportive they are. And drown in their apologetic commitment to diversity and tolerance. And David I am not surprised as to the way the Metro Toronto cops treated the issue of your assault. They are nothing but a pack of cowards, I discovered that as a teenager getting into the Law Enforcement program at college. The TO cops are great at detaining and intimidating innocent law abiding citizens, remember the G20. Yes they are efficient common bullies, and will discriminate against you, violate your rights and at times even gun you down if you’re white. So don’t expect any kind of justice from those self serving public trust violators and public trough feeders.

C’mon Xing. When you make statement like that you know inquiring minds are going to ask. Give us the list.

They are going to throw the book at her with committing a hate crime as an example to the sheeple to remain silent and tolerate the intolerable cult of islam. I believe this woman may have been provoked and this situation staged. Of course, MSM never cover the incidents where the pack of muslim women walking down the street glare meet a canadian woman walking alone…talking Arabic with their facial expressions of contempt, detain and hate. I see it all the time. Then is it is 3 or more canadian women walking down the street together, the muslim women smile and nod their heads as if in submission of peace, thanksgiving and humility. Muslims are notorious for gang like tendencies and love their victims to have no witnesses.

To be fair, there was that Syrian couple who were a great help.

Kind of makes me think of the no arrest or charges in Calgary, yet the second a Jewish man attacked a Muslim in TO he was arrested on the spot.

Xing or should i say Gordo, hate to tell you but not doing everything Muslims demand like a sheep is not really an affront to them.
commented 2016-06-29 02:24:06 -0400
Xing Bashu please enlighten us to those numerous crimes LMAO!
commented 2016-06-29 00:42:59 -0400
David – you should’ve laid a private charge against the officer(s) for Obstructing Justice! That not only gets you justice in the end, but it let’s police know they can’t get away with such behaviour! Oh, and when he’s on the stand, you might’ve grilled him about who instructed these officers to do this, then gone after THAT person as well – all the way to the top!!

Speaking of the woman who insulted and assaulted a fellow shopper in London, Ontario, David Menzies says: “whoever perpetrated this crime should do some time behind bars”.

Really? you know what was going on at that moment? Perhaps the first shopper had grabbed the last of a sale item. Or more possibly, perhaps the assaulting woman is emotionally unstable.

Put her behind bars?

She may still be the best Mom for her kids. She may have been having such a bad day that she needs some psychological help.

Put her behind bars. That should be the last resort.

Funny how this Rebel terrorist suddenly tries to lecture the liberal media about ‘fair journalism’ when he deliberately avoids reporting all of the other anti-Muslim hate crimes and discrimination that are going on in the country.

I know if some muzzie attacks me it will be a beat down so they understand their place in the order of things. Civilization demands no less.

Nothing like selective law enforcement! I was marching with a group of people carrying signs a couple of weekends ago, when we were accosted by a nut case leftard (white) woman wearing a checkered terrorist scarf, who began screeching and swearing at us, and shoving her cell phone camera into our faces. This went on for almost an hour. Terrorist Bag Lady was so loud and obnoxious that a cop approached us asking if we wanted him to help get rid of her. I told him our main issue was her taking our photos without our consent, and likely sharing them all over the internet. The cop’s response was that we were in a public place, which means we’re fair game for anyone to take our pictures whether we like it or not.

Contrast that with David Menzies’ experience. “She was just trying to knock the camera out of your hand because she didn’t want her picture taken.” Whatever happened to “she was in a public place, so you had every right to take her pic, and we’re charging her with assault.”

Want to get away with murder, rape, assault or any crime of your choice in Toronto? Just wrap a rag around your head, or wear a terrorist rag around your neck. You don’t even have to be Islamic – if you look the part, you’ll get the VIP Royal Islamist Treatment as part of the new Super Class.

Candy-Ass Cops take the prize every time. The injustice in this report is disgusting. A sense of hopelessness is creeping in.

I guess nobody read the London Free Press article printed shortly after the incident, in which the Muslima was interviewed. Of course the Evil Attacker didn’t get her side of the story published, and there’s a good reason why. BECAUSE SHE WASN’T THE ATTACKER!
Read between the lines of the LFP article (link below) and you’ll notice this:
- Islamic Princess approached the “assailant” first, for “glaring at her” and “mumbling”. She aggressively demanded to know “what her problem was”, which started the confrontation
- Islamic Princess threw the first punch and started the violence. She then proceeded to bitch slap the “assailant” across the face, with the excuse that it was “a natural reflex” Maybe for an entitled Islamic savage with poor impulse control and no anger management skills.
- The “assailant” did NOT pull the Islamic Princess’ hijab off, it fell off on its own during the two-sided struggle
- “the [Islamic Princess] said she agreed with local Muslim leaders who said the attack was hate-motivated.” In other words, she’s in league with the whiny Islamic cadre of professional whiners who claim that “Islam has nothing to do with terror” – or a Hijabi Princess assaulting another shopper for the dastardly hate crime of – looking at her.


Now you know why this story has suddenly disappeared from the front pages. Because the so-called hate attack was utter bullshit as usual, and the one who really belongs in jail is the whiny Hijabi. But that isn’t stopping the Star and Crescent from vilifying Canadian patriots as racists for wearing shirts with the word “Canada” on the front:

David, just a quick correction. You pronounce woman and women the same. Actually Faith Goldy does this too and I’m not sure why. It isn’t a big deal but it sounds kind of….weird.

“Woman” is pronounced “wuh-mun”.- the way you pronounce both words. But “Women” is pronounced “Wih-men.” The “i” sounds like the “i” in “fish”.

Just saying.

The white race is doomed. We have half of us wanting our own extinction.
Cheered on by every special interest group and religions. When your own elected Prime Minister does more for multinationals than it’s own citizenry cheered on by the government run CBC the fix is in. Unless you haven’t yet drank the Kool-aid that is.

In a few years, as this type of politically correct B.S. gets increasingly worse, Canadians are just going to start to take justice into their own hands.

Indeed this story is a very sad statement regarding Canadian justice for Canadians that were born here.
Clearly if you are a white; Christian or Jewish Hetero Sexual male you are denied justice. It seems that truly, under our politically correct system some people are more equal than others.

It is enough to make you sick!

Bugs Potter: I imagine a more villain like character emerging. A chameleon like shape shifter who blends himself into whatever voting demographic he happens to be around so he kind suck the votes off of whatever unsuspecting public he happens to be around as he smiles broadly and poses with them for a selfie. I am trying to imagine an outfit and title that incorporates a feminist, transgender Muslim who reveres the dictatorship of communist China and is bosom buddies with Barack.

In essence we are being taught bigotry at the hands of our government who lack the depth of perception to realize eventually when the people get tired of it there will be a backlash. The laws work when people perceive there is an attempt to uphold it fairly. Not perfectly but fairly. Giving one group a pass is an obvious recipe for disaster to everyone but politicians.

Careful David your white privilege is showing. Seriously it is interesting to see that even back then the kowtowing to one religion had begun. I can understand why you started wearing a niqab. Sorry I couldn’t resist.

Catherine Campbell,

Interesting point about the identity of the perpetrator not being released. This will be something to watch for. If the identity does not square the narrative, it will be kept confidential. If it does square, we should see it released by the police backed by a brass band and fireworks.
