CBC now labels comments criticizing Islam as “Islamophobic”

StaffRebel Columnist

The CBC/The State Broadcaster/MSNBC North has proven exactly why many Canadians opposed M103 and the lack of a definition regarding the word “Islamophobia”. To the left and to the CBC, any criticism of Islam is 'Islamophobic' and must be silenced.

In an article from March 23, the CBC claimed that a “Peel District School Board meeting was disrupted by Islamophobic comments”. You can read about what happened at that meeting here.

What exactly were the so-called “Islamophobic” comments? The CBC article doesn't say.

Luckily, our friends over at CIJ News compiled a list of some of the things said at the meeting regarding Muslim prayers in public schools.

“You’re implementing an Islamic dominance rule in this country. That’s what you’re doing. We support Canadian values. No beheadings. No female genital mutilation. No child marriage. We don’t allow that in Canada. That’s what this books [Quran] says. We don’t religion in schools. The money dollar [from Saudi Arabia] is your pocket making decision for you. Mohammad the pedophile, and a warlord and a rapist. [Religion] does not belong in schools. Go to Pakistan. We will be in a Sharia [Islamic] Law state. It’s a book of hate [the Quran]. Islam will kill you. Islam will rape. Free speech. Free speech.”

While some of these comments may be considered over-the-top, they're tame compared to what's being preached in Canadian mosques, such as calling for Jews to be murdered. Nothing said at this school board meeting remotely compares.

Yet for some reason, an article by the CBC about the hate-filled sermons doesn't include the term “Antisemitism”. So, just to be clear...

According to the CBC, being critical of Islam and its prophet is “Islamophobia”. But calling for Jews to be killed doesn't even get called “hate” by the CBC. In fact, any reference to “hate” in the article is about Montreal's hate crimes unit or when quoting someone else.

But it's not just the CBC who jumps the gun and calls criticism of Islam “Islamophobia”. Other members of the Media Party are calling the comments “anti-Muslim” despite the fact Islam, not individual Muslims were criticized.

As CIJ News reports, the Globe and Mail claimed:

Police intervened at a Toronto-area school board meeting on Wednesday evening after members in the audience shouted anti-Muslim rhetoric, tore pages from a Koran and stepped on the religious text.” 

And The Toronto Star:

“At the Peel board’s meeting Wednesday night, tempers flared and police — who have been called in to recent meetings for extra security — cleared the room after about 80 protesters could not be calmed. One ripped up a copy of the Quran, and stomped on it, as others yelled anti-Muslim comments.”

The only Muslim mentioned at the meeting was the Islamic Prophet Mohammed, who was called a “pedophile” and a “warlord”. So how exactly are the comments anti-Muslim? 

Simple. There was no “Islamophobia”. There was no hatred being spewed towards Muslims. The media and the left love to label anyone with a different viewpoint as some sort of xenophobic bigot.

We warned you that “Islamophobia”, under the guise of anti-Muslim attacks, really meant criticism of Islam. Now, here we are.

As if we needed another reason to sell the CBC. If the State Broadcaster wants to be Al Jazeera Maple, they shouldn't be getting a nickel from taxpayers. And quite frankly, I've jihad enough.

Where are the police or military when hundreds or thousands of muslims clog the streets screaming and chanting for death to anyone who draws a simple innocent cartoon image of mohammed ( nowhere near as belligerant as putting an image of Jesus in a jar of PISS, or blowing up hundreds of churches and smashing religious statues) or says anything they don’t like. This is perfectly fine to the appeasers of islam, for the unhinged followers to do. Is this not just a tad worse than anyone criticizing islam? M103 is a severe threatening disgrace to Canadians, goes against our constitution, has nothing to do with Canada and is a serious possibly eventual islamic death threat over our heads by islamic terrorists and our islamofascist liberal government. Our Canadian government can’t pass this m103 because it supports the islamic terrorist mentality to kill off all non muslims and that is treason and endangerment to the lives of all Canadian citizens.

Liza, you make great points.
When Iqra Khalid told the House she is a young, brown skinned , muslim Canadian, (then read the e-mails from irate Canadians opposing her motion) I noted she identified being Canadian last. Very telling. Her passport may say Canadian, but, don’t let that fool you.

After witnessing the entire House stand in cheering applause after the weepy story of abuse and violation this Muslim woman guest speaker had endured in Canada, I don’t hold out too much hope for the near future. Our politicians are a huge disappointment. They are hanging us out to dry.

“So this is how liberty ends, with thunderous applause”, some movie line I have heard repeated. An appropriate line none the less.

230 something days left until the hammer comes down. The ‘all government’ approach will be laid out. The info gathered and decisions made. We can expect to see another woman wrapped in a niqab (terribly unflattering garb) weeping as she tells her stories of Islamophobia, racism and discrimination. We can expect reenactments of choreographed propaganda in the House just before they take a vote for the next Islamic accommodation, as they did for the m103 vote. They are clearly pushing the non existent ‘racism’ label. The woman picked for the last performance just before the vote, identified herself as a ‘Muslim woman of colour’. They are tired of us saying ‘Muslim’ is not a race, and are going to use the ‘colour’ identifier when ever they can to get to the racist label.

I hope there are enough Canadians who can see the truth and can turn this thing around before we become another violated country and people. Seek the truth. If any of them read these comments, please don’t count on others for your information. Understand the underhanded disingenuous supremacist behaviour Islam and the Quran demands of its followers. Only then will you begin to understand the threat we as a nation are under. In out Parliament taqiyya is the biggest card the liberals have because our conservatives are weak and cowardly.

When the nicer weather is here, perhaps huge rallies outside of CBC headquarters on a regular basis would be fun! Lots of banners & placards saying “1.5 billion dollars should get us journalists who are honest & report in a balanced way.” “Stop delivering daily government propaganda” “We want the news, not your opinion disguised as the news” “Start asking the government the hard questions” “We are sick of Trudeau puff pieces!” “The truth matters to Canadians”

Andrew Sloan, I didn’t see your comments until a few minutes ago. I totally agree with you; well said.
My question to the government is -“Which Ministry will be tasked with rounding up the critics of this ideology so that the witch hunt can begin?”
commented 2017-03-27 15:22:44 -0400
Andrew Sloan, What makes this even worse is that we have now the empirical and anecdotal evidence of what these policies have caused in Europe. DISASTER. Every problem with Islam is at its core , including Jihad , terrorism , hatred for Jews . By creating a faux protection of the so called Moderate Islam, we have basically given all the radical elements the fertilizer to flourish. It truly is insane and folly.
Can they put us all in concentration camps for calling out the truth? No doubt with Muslim guards and commandants.
commented 2017-03-27 15:18:36 -0400
Is it me, or does Motion-103 sound like an infinite mandate to take a whole government approach to elevating Islam to the preferred “religion” of Canada? If unbelievers have a problem with that, we are working on legislation to make that illegal.

The Islamophobia motion also refers to a holistic approach, based on a needs assessment of the affected communities….doesn’t this sound like it opens the door for there to be Sharia courts? I guess the study will outline what exactly Islamophobia is? Nope! Keeping the definition as vague as possible means anything and everything is fair game when someone is accused of Islamophobia.

I guess, like Sweden, Canada is in need of requesting political “influence” of USA’s President Trump. These treasonous lunatics are so f**cked up they know not what their fate will be! When the government ignores the threats made by Imams and Islamic ass-hats and instead prosecutes anyone understanding the threat – ie. the Majority – sounds most suicidal to me!! The Libtards have gone completely insane – like walking dead Zombies – and like in the movies – the Zombies never win. Their sinister & dark agenda – won’t be accepted – until the battle begins. This law signals that the war has started – and those willing to keep their heads up their asses ie TruDope & his gang of barbaric lunatics, will be filtered out by their own inconceivable ignorance. CBC?? …are there any reality minded people in that inexcusable waste of tax-payers $$ ??? Rex Murphy – I thought you had some realistic brains?!

The CBC is a cesspool of lies and hypocrisy. The fact that they still have a broadcasting license is an insult to all thinking canadians.

I keep hearing “It’s only a motion” not a bill so why worry, but I feel like there’s some key elements at play that everyone has missed.

Firstly, that there’s already a blasphemy law in Canada (Sec 296 of Criminal Code, Blasphemous Libel) which M103 may have just made enforceable and expanded to include social media (which didn’t exist at the time to original bill was adopted) when combined with vague and nebulous definitions under hate speech and human rights codes in Canada that effectively give M103 a legislative framework to operate unchecked.

We don’t need any new bills, the ground work is already done.

M103 now forces the government to adopt the content of petition E-411 which officially divorces Islam from any connection to acts of terrorism committed in the very name of Islam.
Furthermore, the Heritage Standing Committee report this motion demands will no doubt find rampant “Islamophobia” everywhere even though it’s undefined, since they’re determined to find it at all costs and thus, will return recommendations demanding further action, hundreds of millions of dollars spent & special privilege for Islam to redress some “systemic” disadvantage though its existence is dubious at best. This is made possible by and made reference to in M103 of the Charter of Rights, which under section 15(2) states: “(2) Subsection (1) does not preclude any law, program or activity that has as its object the amelioration of conditions of disadvantaged individuals or groups including those that are disadvantaged because of race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability.”

M103 presupposes “disadvantage” for Muslims in demanding “recognition of a need to quell Islamophobia” so the committee is more or less given carte blanche to grant special status to Islam while using the body of legislation and adoption of E-411 to immunize it from critique.

So they pass a motion that:
1) Condemns an act they presuppose but have not defined and which may mean anything they want it to for expediency.
2) That may render enforceable other anachronistic or corollary statutes on the books and
3) Commission a report that will lead to further immunity from criticism & consolidation of power in governmental structures, likely to include Muslim hiring quotas, possible parallel legal system with Sharia courts (there is precedent in Canada for this with aboriginal justice), expansion of university depts. For Islamic studies or creation of parliamentary ministry akin to Status of Women, etc. while at the same time
4) Through linkage to E-411, officially disconnecting acts of terror from the religion that inspires and condones it while simultaneously using it as both shield and sword to intimidate and cow critics of political Islamist expansion.

This is all no accident and has been engineered purely by design, Iqra Khalid, the motion’s sponsor, has met several times with people with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, doubtless the source of this ill-advised calumny perpetrated by the Canadian Liberal government.

The CBC is a disgrace. As the official state broadcaster of Canada, is is intentionally Liberal government biased. Its moderators regularly delete comments that do not meet its social engineering criteria. Its forums are filled with payed leftist shills who if they do not openly insult you on its forums, flag any opinion that the mods missed. After being a member there for many years I know.
My Canada does not include the non-religious, totalitarian, political, ideological cult called Islam that for the last 1400 years has masqueraded as a religion.
M103 is not an anti-Islamophobia motion. It is a pro-Islamofascist motion. That is the truth. The best word to describe M103 is “sinister.”
commented 2017-03-27 13:52:08 -0400
CBC speaks for Trudeau, any criticism of Islam (valid or not ) needs to be “quelled” and the Motion 103 intentionally didn’t define Islamophobia so that it can be applied to any criticism or ojection to the ideology….everything can then be considered “Islamophobic” as the Muslim Brotherhood demands via the UN.

Daniel Pipes wrote an article titled “Smoking out Islamists via Extreme Vetting”

It is a long article, but, well worth the read. His vetting questions are exact and would give the interviewer a clearer idea of what the potential immigrant to Canada is bringing with him or her.

Excellent article, Mike.

Unfortunately I do not see the main stream media ever changing.

For as long as the main stream media continues to think people who criticize Islam are Islamophobic while simultaneously refusing to read the Koran themselves to discover what is says, they will forever paint up the critics as “freaks” and “extremists”.

The fact is that there is a veil of spiritual darkness over the eyes of those who appease followers of Islam that does not allow them to see the truth.

Further proof that the CBC is the propaganda arm of the Liberal Party. Sell it off piecemeal.

The scary thing, Ron, is that as tepid as Leitch’s comments are the CBC is portraying her as a radical far right nut job.

One can see the problem in Canada is the same as it was in the US. All parties are run by the elites who prattle slightly different versions of the same lefto-babble. " Get your programs. Can’t tell one from the other without a program." Some one from the outside needs to come in and speak clearly, unequivocally and unashamedly. Might be a long wait.

My, my, a full-court press from Kellie Leitch’s campaign, appealing to the reader to “Screen immigrants for Canadian values”, with a full border placed around an article dealing with Muslims and ‘Islamophobia’, and “Immigrants should be screened for anti-Canadian values” blasted all over the web page!
A Globe and Mail/Nanos survey in August 2016 found that almost 75 per cent of Canadians, ranging from 70% (Quebec) to 80% (Prairies) by region, support or somewhat support, “Making the screening process more onerous for potential immigrants from regions such as the Middle East to reduce potential security threats”. Leitch has cleverly tapped into the angst that Canadians have, and, thus, her campaign benefits from those worried as per the G&M/Nanos survey.
According to “Screening for Canadian Values” at Leitch’s campaign website, Leitch describes Canadian values as including, “Equal opportunity, Hard work, Helping others, Generosity, and Freedom and tolerance (A Canadian identity that is based on freedom and tolerance to allow each of us the chance to pursue our best lives and to become our best selves)”.
So, I ask, does such ‘screening’, as Kellie Leitch suggests, fit the bill as far as the objective of, “Making the screening process more onerous for potential immigrants from regions such as the Middle East to reduce potential security threats”?
How about as an alternative, for example, something like “suspend immigration to Canada from countries or regions that support, encourage or harbour terrorists or Islamic extremism”?

Why waste time ripping up Qurans, Just hang them in the Out House where they belong.

The great God of Lies, the CBC has jumped the gun on this, taking the law into their own hands. Trudeau’s little Lap Dogs are yelping prematurely.

One more time, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS ISLAMOPHOBIA. Trudeau and his Eastern bed fellows are going to have to prove or define it’s meaning. Assuming that they are going to proceed legally with this Islamic BS.
