Lesson from #BlackLivesMatter Toronto: Write a violent, racist tweet -- get a meeting with Premier Wynne

David MenziesMission Specialist

Imagine I tweeted out the following message: “Please God, give me the strength not to kill black folks today.” Would you think I was a hateful racist, maybe even a KKK member?

If so, you’d be justified and I’d likely be fired from this podium with good reason. Such a hateful tweet, suggesting only divine intervention could stop me from killing people of a specific race, is beyond the pale.

Then there’s Yusra Khogali, a.k.a. Yusra Ali, a Toronto Black Lives Matter organizer who back in February tweeted this message:

“PLZ Allah, give me the strength not to cuss/kill these men and white folks out here today. plz plz plz.”

Jerry Agar of Toronto’s Newstalk 1010 broke the story. Yusra removed the tweet but not quickly enough. A keen-eyed observer archived it and complained to Toronto Police despite their claim that no one did.

The day before this tweet hit the news, Premier Kathleen Wynne informally met with Yusra’s group outside Queen’s Park promising a formal face-to-face meeting soon.

Let’s take inventory of the fallout of Yusra’s outrageous tweet: First, Yusra hasn’t apologized. Second, another BLM spokeswoman now blames the media for focusing on the wrong message. And third, after dithering for 24 hours, Premier Wynne announced she’ll still meet with the group because Yusra’s vile racist tweet should be ignored due to “systemic racism” or something.

The day this story broke hundreds of Ontario tow truck drivers were at Queen’s Park demanding a meeting with Wynne over new regulations they say will adversely affect their industry. They were completely ignored.

Here’s my free advice for them: Employ a visible minority Muslim spokesman invoking the name of Allah while contemplating killing members of a specific race.

Follow this template next time you stage a protest and trust me, Ontario’s Social Justice Premier will gladly entertain you. You’re welcome.

Anaiya Montgomery . Hardly anybody knows her name. A beautiful three year old child killed in a hail of bullets in her bed in Detroit over the Easter weekend . Who cares? Certainly not BLM . It isn’t a story about some white cop or white person killing a black person so it isn’t useful for BLM’s narrative. No Jesse Jackson , no Al Sharpton , no indignation from the white house.
These are the stories that have to be ignored or supressed. Black on black crime and violence can never be the fault of blacks in the minds of the Black Lives Matter group. So the killing goes on , and even if publicized it would be morphed into some tengential blame aimed at the whites.
So the killing goes on. And very little on the newscasts about Wil Smith , former and now deceased NFL star. Killed over the weekend in an apparent road rage incident. Wasn’t a white cop or white assailant so again its not newsworthy , not worthy of being raised to the National level fitting of the race bait crowd.
If saving lives was the goal of this fraudulant group of agitators , they would be looking to resolve issues in their own communities, caused completely by themselves.
Ignore them? No. Challenge them with the evidence of their own inability to control crime in their own neighborhoods and cities.
If BLM focused more on the issues that lead to little Anaiya’s death instead of a thug like Michael Brown, more lives would be saved. I challenge anyone to look at the following link and not be moved to tears.

XD You are right. Look at the interactive map of WORLD HERITAGE SITES. I think there are around ten in Canada, and in the hundreds in Europe and Africa. "

And don’t get me wrong, there likely wouldn’t be a British North America without the help of Tecumseh and the Shawnee people during the war of 1812. Securing the alliance of the Natives was crucial for the defence of Upper Canada against the U.S.

Jack Pallance said: “All lives matter. End of story.”

Thank you. All lives do matter and SOMETIMES in order to protect those lives, good cops without a shred of hatred in their hearts must take lives. Just because a police officer shoots a black person doesn’t necessarily mean that the officer did so because the person he was black. Do you honestly think that police officers in Caribbean or African countries don’t occasionally shoot people? Is BLM going to accuse them of racism too? Look up the “Flying Squad” in Jamaica. They shot lots of perps. In Deigo Martin, Trinidad, there was a gang of troublemakers that was terrorizing the locals on Covigne Road. Well one day the police at the Deigo detachment cleaned house in a massive shoot out with the gang members. Covigne Road was a LOT safer after that. Closer to home, I’m sure the residents of Driftwood Avenue or the Pallisades in Jane and Finch would love for some of the local perps to catch a bullet or two.

When BLM refuses to differentiate between the shooting of deserving and undeserving people and yell that absolutely no blacks must be shot, they endanger not only the black lives that they claim to value but all lives. If politicians cave into the pressure and accept the false premise that blacks never deserve to be shot, police will likely throw their hands in the air and not bother trying to tackle the guys who really need to be apprehended. Why bother if they’ll just be accused of racism? I’ve experienced racism and the stuff we go through now is nothing compared to what my parents witnessed back in the 60s and 70s.

Asian lives matter too! We are all human beings, we feel being discriminated too. So what! Instead of being a crying baby and be part in destroying the society, what we do is study hard, work hard and try to integrate until they accept us because they will see that we are productive and contribute to the society! But if you go against the society then it is your choice but definitely your life will just be in misery! And that hatred will just be passed on to your next generation. Don’t use hatred to fulfil your intention. The more you show your hatred to others, the more you will not be successful in your life!

Yep. My first thought when I saw a magazine featuring ‘black lives matter’: all lives matter. But I suppose everyone needs a hobby.

Acuuna said: “whitey, would you get your F’n freed slaves the F off my land. they really shit the place up and devalue the property. whitey came here and built a life for himself, carved it out with his bare hands and some simple tools. I can respect that. but your freed slaves with their mouths open and hand out playing the perpetual victim are really starting to annoy the F out of me. you brought them here in the bottom of your boats like rats. they don’t belong here nor could they ever build the boat to get them here. send them back from whence they came. don’t we have laws dealing with an invasive species?
keep pushing”

No offence there Dances in glass houses but if we’re going to play the game of basing human value on the level of technological advancement, i think team darky has you beat. Nearly 4100 YEARS after Kunta Kinte built the first pyramids, Natives hadn’t invented the wheel or writing. I don’t agree with BLM. I think they are trying to act American. Honestly. But have a little respect.

And what’s this nonsense about your land. You’d better read those treaties again.

Im still waiting until some BLM protester torches a police cruiser in protest, just like they the Black Bloc did at the G8 protest over 4 yrs ago, I doubt that much would become of it.

The city will probably just quietly replace the car; nothing to see here folks, just move on. In light of the police shootings, I wouldn’t be surprised if it does happen. If they do, by the way, please wait until after the officer has gotten out, because police lives matter too.

I listened to a lecture by a black professor from the U.S. His lecture was titled " Stop Blaming Whitey for Your Problems ". In his lecture he points out several primary problems in the Afro-American culture . First , is what he calls ’ tribalism’. The younger black population are so engrossed in being black that it stops them from attempting anything constructive. Being black is their persona and image that they project and all their failures can be attributed to being black. The second issue is young black women having babies with several different ’ baby daddies’. Dropping out of school and becoming a welfare case is acceptable because their momma did it and they didn’t turn out so bad, did they ? He also pointed out that many black churches and pastors become havens for black women where they get together and demonize black men for their lack of responsibility yet they harass the men to the point of driving them out of their home. He also pointed out that slagging whitey for slavery is old and stale and that every major religious text talks about slavery hundreds and hundreds of years before any European showed up. Slavery still exists and it exists in many African countries to this day.
Interesting lecture.

Don’t bother trying explaining their escaped ancestors sought refuge here. They don’t care, and their American counterparts who move here import their entitled ghetto underdog culture of perpetual victimhood. If they riot, they should be deported to their parents country of origin. Canada has no historical or political obligation to blacks. We didn’t enslave them. We owe them nothing. Their attempts to perpetuate while guilt it is unacceptable, and they should be called out for it at any turn. This isn’t the United States.

Remember when Harper met with Ford during the election? Trudeau, Wynne and the entire leftist media howled their outrage and compared Ford to a racist drug addict and painted Harper as a bigot and a supporter of this type of behaviour. Now that Khogali has been outed as a bigot and a violent one that wants to murder white people, Wynne gets a pass from the media and they all dismiss this as the fault of those racist white people. Welcome to Canada under Liberal rule. I’m surprised that Trudeau hasn’t done a selfie with Khogali yet.

I followed this in Hog Town last week while visiting.

All I can say is if the author had been white he would have been visited by the strong arm of the liberal party – the opp.

(deliberate no caps)

So – you can get away with many things – unless you are white – then you could be in trouble.

Have to admit that the first post in this thread – by acuuna – rings true.

it would help,too, if somehow you managed to include in your request something that would relate to “global warming”, “climate change”, or whatever the cause of the jour is.

The biggest danger we face from Blacks is their tendency to convert to Islam.

Bill Elder , and those are the people who made this nation great and allowed it to flourish. the blacks are just professional victims for who knows what reason… any man or woman can be just about anything they want in this country with a little hard work. why the blacks choose to be victims and act oppressed is not something that I cannot wrap my head around. nor do I see them being oppressed anywhere in this land. all I really see is a political class of whites attempting to oppress their own race. try and figure that one out…

D Evans, flowing Joe’s comment:

All you have to do is click off the end of video commercial. It is a very simple mouse operation that even an old fart like me can do, and I’m sure your local computer tech store will teach you for free. I even make use of the mouse to advance through the commercials on the premium shows. Best with Rebel commercials, is one can click them off without having to wait 10 seconds like other on-line commercials.

Anyway, D, get a manual regarding how to use a mouse.

Dear D Evans, it is true that the Rebel (re Ezra) is pitching for contributions to the Rebel. It is true that you can see more here IF you subscribe. But that is free enterprise. Consider the opposite: CBC not pitching to the common viewer to subscribe; instead they are GIVEN the equivalent of around $135 per household, against the express will or permission of these people (you and I), to be the state broadcaster (something we do not need anymore). So if you think you can compare the two, think again. Rant against the CBC and CTV and Global, not against the free thinking folk at the Rebel, who ask but do not demand.

Acuuna – the “slaves” used in Canadian colonial times were mostly indentured Scotts, Welsh or Irish fleeing the potato famines. These are the mules of the landed gentry which cleared land, built roads bridges and canals or pushed York boats across swamps or cargo canoes up the lakes to open trade with the natives.. They lie in unmarked graves across this nation – i guess their lives are meaningless when we pay attention to the whining of professional welfare cases.

I picked up a D.H. Lawrence book, The Plumed Serpent (1926), to read. Not the greatest book ever, not even a great book. However, it has the following quote, which I think is so pertinent to groups like Black Lives Matter, the A.F.N., Occupy, LGBTQ2XYZetc, and other S.J.W. nonsense, and I would like to share:

“Cursed are the FALSELY meek, for they are inheriting the Earth.”

This was written 1926 but I think it more sums up today, eh?
