Canadian professor's defence of Antifa thugs “stunning” for all the wrong reasons

David MenziesMission Specialist

Professor Cynthia Levine-Rasky, from the Sociology Department at Kingston’s Queen’s University, penned a heartfelt but disturbing letter to Now Magazine in defence of Antifa.

If the letter, which I’ll read in its entirety, was meant as parody, it would be hilarious.

The professor’s take is stunning for all the wrong reasons, including rubbish suggesting these masked thugs are engaged in a war against white supremacy.

For goodness sake, somebody buy this gal a calendar and a map! We’re in 21st Century Canada, not 1939 Nazi Germany. Shouldn’t we be more concerned about radical Islam?

I reached out to Professor Levine-Rasky for much-needed clarification, but there was no response, which isn’t surprising.

Those who hate free speech and applaud violence have difficulty expressing themselves with words, and her idiotic letter is the proof in the pudding.

Notice that when confronted with facts and their arguments ravaged the trolls have not come back.

Glenn and Allen very correct. They do not go away when unchallenged, it makes them come around more. This is quite obvious when they are absent on certain stories, they think not reading it makes it not to have happened and no response to them is a validation of their BS!

Ron…you obviously have never read Saul Alinski’s “Rules For Radicals”…..

Politics is no venue for the faint of heart.

And you probably never read any Roman (Latin) history of the gladiatorial games…

(Serbian captive)….“I will not fight”

(Magister Ludi the trainer of the gladiators)….“They all say that…oh but fight you will…and what is more…when you hear the roar of the crowd…you will love it”

I remembered those words every time I squared off against a school bully as a kid who was “different” ….every time I bowed as a karateka and recited “O NEGAI SHIMAS” before the match began….

I remembered it every time I saw or read background on coach Don Cherry…

But do you know what becomes even more satisfying? It is that look of stunned disbelief on your opponent’s face when you deliver the blow that sends them to the ground….when you get to really savour THAT…it no longer matters if the crowd is cheering you or booing.

It’s a dirty and frequently thankless job….but somebody has to do it.

We should be most concerned about the radical alt-left. That is the biggest threat, assuming N Korea does not start a nuke war.

Perhaps the Rebel can create a separate site where the trolls and those who have fun engaging with them can play all you want.

Another fallacy that Amy uses is moral equivalency. Trying to make Tommy a “thug” in the way that the Antifact losers are thugs. He has never masked himself to sucker punch someone. He has never vandalized property. He has never rioted. He has never shouted someone down to prevent them from talking. Amy is using the Fallacy of False Analogy. Fortunately this is quite transparent.

For whatever failings he has Tommy is not a thug.

Glenn Craig, I agree with you. Truth has to be upheld and BS exposed. I understand why others think the Trolls (and that is what they are) should be ignored but their BS and illogical and irrational arguments need to be exposed.

Some viewers here may not be able to see through the BS so it behooves us to expose and explain it.

Where we don’t want to go is to get into childish name calling and get off topic. Expose the diversion and lack of logic and facts- then move on.

“Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them;”

Ephesians 5:11

From Kingston
The prof is well known on campus as an uber-radical who enjoys spouting off for attention. Sadly the students attending Queens are unable to do anything about her.

The good prof would do well to acquaint herself with Nazism. Perhaps then she would see the parallels between today’s modern left, Antifa and the Nazis ( who were socialists too). . .. .. . Nah. It will never happen. She is a disgrace to that fine institution, Queen’s University and sadly will continue to spout her nonsense.

Wanda and Ron….trolls do not go away when ignored. And every time a SJW makes an assertion that goes unchallenged , the fact that it goes unchallenged is seen as verification.

The reason why we got stuck with feminism and post modernism (and now globalism and refried marxism) ….is because nobody challanges them or talks back.

Try to immagine a session of parliament where nobody responded to a “troll”. All that troll would need is a sock puppet seconder and parliament could be tied up indefinately with frivolous motions and if everybody flinched when they were called an"ist" or the party whip got overbearing the trolls would run parliament elected mandate or not.

WANDA ORION commented, “Amy Lynn is a troll … and a man. Why are you all wasting your brain cells engaging with him?” Sadly Wanda, it seems like some people never learn.

The best part is that the Fredericton shooter (Matthew Raymond) is a huge Rebel Media fan. You guys really know how to groom ’em!

Amy…….John Hinkley Jr had the biggest crush on Jody Foster….but he just wasn’t her type….in fact…no male is her type….sort of like you Amy….perhaps you could relate to that.

You won’t find any REBEL staff at the Baccus club house and I have never seen any Baccus members at any REBEL events, at least not wearing their colours. Law and order conservatives aren’t really the sort of people they like to party with.

But if the Baccus and ANTIFA should want to meet (under police supervision of course…..:-)…and air their differences I would watch that video feed with interest.

One of the very few reasons i would welcome sharia law is so that fools like this reap what they sow.

Hey prof these twerps are the only actual example of white privilege there is, and they are White supremacists in every way.

If this progressor is ever attacked by those she is excusing i will merely laugh.

Amy Lynn your sad propaganda is pathetic and laughable.

Allan, Marc Lepine was Christian, baptized as Roman Catholic. Nice try. I see Rebel Media is making you sooooo smart.
OK, cheap shot artist. I’ve got my Master’s degree. How about you?

We covered this before.
1. As a typical lefty you have moved the focus away from the issue at hand.
2. This claim of your yours is unsubstantiated- therefore dubious. Very dubious coming from you.
3. This claim of yours is guilt by association. Was he also a fan of Sesame Street? How about the Blue Jays? So what?

So, Amy, your analogy, “You label every Arab a “Muslim” without knowing his or her devotion.”, is invalid and was not at all what I was saying.

You misunderstood me because of your misunderstanding of what baptism really is.
commented 2018-09-23 22:58:41 -0400
The problem is, Amy, that you seem to think that being baptized make a person a Christian.

This is not true.

Baptism is an outward symbol performed by the believer to express his/her dedication to following CHrist.

The only way to be a Christian is to deliberately and consciously accept Jesus Christ as your personal savior. Baptism follows AFTER the decision to follow Jesus.
commented 2018-09-23 22:54:19 -0400
Amy said,
“Imagine if you used the same logic with Muslims, Peter. You label every Arab a “Muslim” without knowing his or her devotion.”

That does not make any sense as a reply to what I just said.

You will have to explain your comment further because it does not relate to what I said at all.

I said that a person is NOT a Christian unless he/she consciously accepts Christ as his/her savior.

How does that statement equate with what you said?

commented 2018-09-23 22:46:23 -0400
Don’t be ridiculous, a Christian according to Christian doctrine does not go out and commit mass murder. However, Islamic terrorists are acting in accord with the teaching in the Koran and following the example of the life of Muhammad who is regarded as the perfect man to be emulated by Muslims, followers of Islam.

Amy Lynn said, “Marc Lepine was Christian, baptized as Roman Catholic”

That doesn’t make him a Christian. Catholics are baptized when they are babies.

To be a Christian Each person must make a conscious choice to accept Christ as his/her savior, otherwise he/she is not a Christian. There is no equivocation on that point.

No, Amy, Marc Lepine was not Christian no matter how much you may wish him to be.

Amy Duh Troll it is not an insult if it is the truth, you have proven quite sufficiently that a box of rocks indeed has a higher IQ level than you do. As for real insults do you want me to list the dozens that you continually post? Liberal thy name is hypocrite, the proof is littered throughout this site. As for you claiming to post “the truth” wouldn’t know “the truth” if it came up and slapped you, don’t ask for that raise just yet, you have not earned it.
