“Liberals playing identity politics” with “Islamophobia” motion

Faith GoldyRebel Host

This week, Conservative Party leadership candidate Andrew Scheer joined me to explain why he opposes M-103, the motion before Parliament to "study" "Islamophobia" with an eye to eliminate it (without actually defining it.)

Andrew Scheer is a product of Pierre Trudeau’s generation who saw national unity and our distinct heritage as key to a brilliant future. Thus he did an excellent job as Speaker of the House — perfectly bi-lingual, diplomatic, good-humoured, aware of all regions of the nation.

With the voting system as it is in the Conservative Party race, he may well take the compromise ribbon.

If he wins he would be the first Conservative leader to be a product of the P. Trudeau generation.

M-103 will also have the effect of standing down police and security agents who have terrorism suspects under surveillence as it will be deemed “islamophobic” profiling as it was in the USA under Obama. Several terrorist incidents that were preventable occurred because of this misguided political correctness.

Allan, I think there one huge difference between Harper and Andrew Scheer. Harper was completely transparent, in that he didn’t play politics. He stood on principle and conviction, and you always knew exactly where he stood on every issue. That doesn’t mean he wouldn’t negotiate and make compromises, but he would never compromise on issues of integrity and principle. When I listen to Andrew Scheer, I have no idea whether he’s sincere, or he’s just saying what he’s saying because he thinks it’s what we want to hear. And does he say the same things and take the same stand when he’s talking to a liberal audience? I don’t know. Harper spoke clearly and concisely; Scheer fumbles and stutters…. which makes me feel he’s just trying say what he thinks we want to hear, or at best he’s very indecisive and unsure of himself.

Allan Peterson: For Justin, pretty well so far. For the rest of us Canadians, not worth a damn.

Possibly, Maurice, but they said Harper had no personality but he got elected. Twice!

Alan Peterson, a politician’s charisma contributes absolutely nothing to one’s moral character, integrity or political philosophy. However, that same politician’s moral character, integrity or political philosophy is completely irrelevant if they can’t be elected. Nobody is attracted to politicians that bore the hell out of them, or speak gobbledygook.

Maurice, Pierre Trudeau was said to have charisma as supposedly does Justin. How has charisma worked out for us so far?

Faith, I found Scheer a little too cavalier for my liking in his ‘opposition’ to Motion M-103, throwing out the “it’s only a motion” argument, as if there is no consequence in supporting a bad motion (which can lead to bad bills).
Disappointing that you did not receive a clear response from him about whether or not he was present in the House of Commons on October 26, 2016, when the motion by NDP leader Tom Mulcair, based upon e-petition e-411("We, the undersigned, Citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the House of Commons to join us in recognizing that extremist individuals do not represent the religion of Islam, and in condemning all forms of Islamophobia”), received all party support on October 26, 2016. That motion paved the way for the introduction of M-103, which has more teeth.

If this guy wanted to replace the federal gun law so it decriminalizes non criminal ownership, and he want’s to “drain the swamp” around huckster green energy patrons and their incestuous relationship with globalist politicians, he has my vote.

Taking on the Islamist free speech censors is a diversionary issue from what ails us – we are being impoverished, disenfranchised, disarmed and disempowered by internationalist socialists who are selling our birthright out to global corporatists – nationalism, sound economics, reasonable taxation, secure borders and communities and sustainable social safety net core essentials (Health/EI/CPP) THIS is what concerns Canadians and laying out a workable solution to attain this will get you and keep you elected

- everything else is a diversion concocted by globalists and their bought and paid for political agents and pressure group NGOs – together these entities couldn’t pull 14% of the popular vote without the help of massive disinformation campaigns run by their pandering media .

Stick with these basics and you will see a populist wave sweep the nation taking a one term Trudeau regime with it.

Muslims are leaving Muslim countries from all over the world to come to Canada for a better life.They are coming because they have Islamophobia. Being afraid of Sharia Law is a good thing especially if you’re Female,Gay or a Non-Believer and Etc. Many Muslims have Islamophobia or why would they want to come to Canada.

I sure hope Andrew Scheer doesn’t win the nomination. Regardless of his political views (which I think are ambiguous at best), he has as much charisma as a wet dish rag.

Since 9/11 – IN THE NAME OF ISLAM (SATAN): 32,838 Attacks, 210,484 Killed, 294,475 Injured that we know of.

But the Homophobia in the Muslim community; who come from countries that execute gay men is ok?! Oh I forgot it’s their culture: and we have to respect their homophobia liberals?

I’m waiting vile liberals. I got your number; and all the lies you spread about people will not work on me. Just try me.

The MP for Mississauga, Iqra Khalid, either doesn’t realize what she is doing which makes her ignorant and incompetent, or she knows fine well what she is doing which makes her dishonest and an enemy of Canada. Not that it really matters since neither is fit to govern us.
The so-called hate-mail, which this Islamic provocateur is purporting to have received, is actually the consequence of her own actions, which in fact makes her the inciter of the hate, divisiveness and violence which she claims to oppose. This beautiful civilized country should have no place for her, or her insidious promotion of a 7th century death cult, founded by a paedophile and operated by savages.
Canadians should make no mistake in this matter; Ms. Khalid is nothing more than the victim of her own atrocity.

When Muslims, in light of the violence and egregious cultures they continue to exhibit in the rest of the world, begin dictating to Western democracies how we should recode, for the sake of what would be in Canada a grossly unconventional religious tradition, those good graces we grant to those less fortunate than us, it should become obvious to all in that moment in time that we must protect, more than anything else, not only those same good graces, but even more, the subjects of those free dominions whose work and toil and sacrifices have made such good graces possible.
If the religion of Islam cannot remedy the sectarian violence it gave birth to in Pakistan, then, please, Iqra Khalid, don’t expect that Islam can ever vitiate our peaceful and praiseworthy traditions here in Canada. As Prime Minister Stephen Harper once told us, “that’s not how we do things here.”

And any liberal wants to call me an a gay man for not wanting to live under Islamic law; say it to my face and I’ll punch you in the face. You want to make up a term to try and silence people; your not silencing me.
commented 2017-02-17 17:03:50 -0500
Liberals want us to be enslaved under Islam just like it is in Saudi Arabia. They wont be happy until gay men like me are executed; and women are stoned to death in the streets. This is war; liberals have declared war on Democracy.

You’re probably right, MATTHEW K.
commented 2017-02-17 16:28:00 -0500
Sorry, but is it only me, but does it seem that Andrew Scheer was tripping over his own words? Not very Prime Ministerial worthy.

The guy’s in a leadership race. He’ll change his mind when he thinks it will increase his chance of success.
