Even Mulcair called niqab a form of "oppression," but Media Party ignored it

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Any woman who says she loves wearing a face mask in public is lying.

The niqab has become a Canadian election issue, and the Left are using it as a way to paint the anti-burqa Right as "racist."

So how do they explain that even NDP leader Thomas Mulcair believes these Muslim face coverings are "oppressive"?

He said so during one of the election debates, remember?

You may not, because the Media Party tried to ignore it.


Enough is enough: Every Canadian must show their face to vote.

Believe that Muslim face coverings have no place in Canada?

Michelle H – the MSM and their constant made up hysteria about PM Harper, is truly sickening to watch. They can say whatever they want to, once they no longer receive any tax dollars from Canadians. The fact that they spew lies about the best PM Canada has ever had, speaks volumes about their agenda. This snake needs to be defanged, when Harper wins another majority. We should not be forced to pay for blatant lies and propaganda by these disgusting losers.

Nathan W, this isn’t about dictating what these women can and can’t wear, it’s about preserving the Canadian value that women and men are equal human beings. The niqab is clearly an oppressive symbol made specifically to indicate the inferiority of Muslim women, and the consequence if they choose not to cover their faces is to be raped by Muslim men. Why should the civilized men and women of Canada just accept this blatantly sexist garment, and allow Islam’s barbaric beliefs to invade our society? We want to move forward and progress, not backtrack to the dark ages.

As for the media, you would have to have your head buried in the sand if you can’t see how pathetically against Harper most media outlets are. Everytime I type in Harper’s name in a search engine, nothing but articles and comments full of incoherent, hysterical anger and hatred show up. When people are talking about the election on the news, Harper is always the target of their disdain. I’m sick of it. The media is suppose to be fair and balanced, but the far left choose to play dirty since it’s the only way they know how.

Nathan W. said, "a) There is no “Media Party”. That’s just bullshit that you guys push to delegitimize media that you don’t like. "

No one here claims there is an actual entity called the “Media Party”. Not even Ezra says that there is an official party called, the “Media Party”. As a matter of fact, Ezra has gone on video record having stated clearly and in no uncertain terms that there is no such thing as the “Media Party”, but that that is what he calls those on the left who seem to “group think” on the issues and act in a very similar manner in the way that they write up their reports and present their “group think” ideas. That is why Ezra has dubbed those people on the left in the media as the “Media Party.” Do you understand now, Nathan?

And as far as de-legitimatizing that group of media personalities, Ezra does not need to do that as they de-legitimize themselves just fine without Ezra’s help. Ezra simply exposes their hypocrisy and stupidity.

So well put Ezra, there’s nothing to add to that!! You nailed it. Cheers!!

Deborah, you are absolutely right. The media has been especially bad with this election because they’re so desperate to defeat Harper. I can’t believe there’s so many ignorant people out there who just soak up everything the media tells them instead of doing their own research and learning the truth. My mom and I were talking yesterday about media manipulation, and we are both so angry and disgusted with it. I also read an article about a week ago about how the media around the world is hiding what’s happening with the migrants, how the men have been raping women and children in the camps, and the ones who live with the general populace are attacking uncovered and unaccompanied European women. Sweden used to be one of the best places for women, now it’s the rape capital of Europe due to unrestricted Muslim immigration! This is terrifying! The media just brushes it off as fear mongering from the Conservatives, yet it’s the media who are mongering fear of Harper! I guess we will see from the results of the election how many idiots in Canada there are compared to the self-aware. We can only hope that the idiots are a vocal minority, and the silent majority will put them in their place. If the idiots are the majority or if Justin Trudeau manages to cheat his way in, (I wouldn’t put it past him or his supporters), then Canada will be destroyed and we’ll never get our freedom and values back.

Voted in the advance poll yesterday (Conservative natch). Got there a half hour early and there were already 15 persons ahead of me. By the time I got in, the line up was around the building! Seems to be a lot of interest so far. Can’t say how the others voted, didn’t ask. It was mix of young and old. Suspect the younger ones have drank the Socialist Kool Aid and probably voted Lieberal or No Democratic Party. The Greens have a small presence in this riding. The candidates are two women, Conservative and Greens, and two men, Dippers and Lieberals. I would like to see the Conservative woman take the riding. An accomplished person with some very good credentials and sound work ethic!

Come this election, I will be voting for Stephen Harper.
I do not nor will I ever trust Trudeau or Mulcair, especially Mulcair.
commented 2015-10-10 18:29:45 -0400
I voted for Harper today.
I’m also scared he might lose his majority. How could anyone not see what he has done for Canada and what the bozos would do. This is insanity.

Michelle H – the mainstream media do not report the news truthfully, and many follow them blindly. The blood of Canadian women will be flowing in our streets one day, because I won’t be wearing the uniform of death, and I’m not alone. I would rather die free, than live in a state of imposed submission, against my will and God given rights to freedom.
commented 2015-10-10 16:14:20 -0400
I can honestly say I’m scared. It’s so important for Harper to win this election for many reasons, and this is on top of the list for me. Why would we allow this oppression into our country that values equal rights and opportunity for women? How can people be so blind to what’s happening?
commented 2015-10-10 13:49:49 -0400
Every one knows that there is nothing in the Quran, that states that a woman should cover her face. Why do they do it then? Inferior equality complex, shyness, ugliness? I do not think so. They are afraid that they may get a jar of acid, thrown in their face or Mommy and Daddy may cut their throat if they do not do as they are told. This is the religion of peace. God help Canada.

These are the Tribes that Trudeau and Muck-air, intend to allow into Canada, by the Millions.

Should Trudope or Tommie the Commie take Government, watch Sharia Law take hold in Canada. Trudope will have to hide away his wife, as ALL women in Canada will be forced to wear the Muslim Body Bag. Tommie’s wife, being a citizen of France will escape that while she is still living there.

Sharia law now has a toe-hold in our citizenship courts. One battle won, now onto the next. Militant Muslims know liberal Canadians are soft in the head and many more victories will be had.

It amazes me that Canadian women are not outraged and fearful, because the more sharia law is accommodated in Canada the less freedom for women. Fully accepted, men on the other hand, will be able to have multiple wives and beat the hell out of them if they don’t obey. Liberal minded Canadian women need to give their heads a shake.

The only freedom women have anywhere in the world is the freedom men allow them to have. In Western countries men allow women equal rights; in many Muslim countries women have few rights, because the men won’t allow them to have any. They prefer their women subservient. There are no disadvantages for men under sharia law so the women better wake up a lead the fight against it and its’ oppressive symbol the niqab.

Here’s everything you never really wanted to know about female head-coverings (hijabs, niqaba, and burkas) as officially defined by only the most “sahih” (official) doctrines of islamic sharia jurisprudence. Read it and laugh.

Or cry.

The currently/still non-citizen Zunera Ishaq, is demanding (even before she’s been confirmed as a Canadian citizen, before earning any possible rights to demand anything of any one of us!) to wear her face-covering Niqab to her Citizenship ceremony.

According to her liberal media sponsors in the Ottawa Citizen, on Saturday, February 10, 2015, P.# A10:

In her affidavit filed with the court, Ishaq wrote that through research, she came to the conclusion that wearing a niqab was “mandatory to my faith” and “integral to the modesty that a muslim woman must show.” But only a small minority of muslim women wear niqabs in Canada.

“I feel most at ease with myself and comfortable in my own skin when I am wearing my niqab,” she wrote. “In fact, there was one time when I had to call 911 due to the sudden birth of my second son at home. At the time when the emergency attendants came to my house I was not wearing my niqab, and my primary concern was covering my face before I could be seen. I did not leave the house until I was sure I be was covered.”


“Judge” Keith Boswell is supporting wannabe but currently non-Canadian-Citizen Zunera Ishaq’s false claims that she feels “that the governmental policy regarding veils at citizenship ceremonies is a personal attack on me, my identity as a Muslim woman and my religious beliefs,” and that said governmental regulations didn’t agree with other governmental regulations, which require citizenship judges to administer the oath with “dignity and solemnity, allowing the greatest possible freedom in the religious solemnization or the solemn affirmation thereof.”

The “judge” negligently errs in his total lack of assessment consideration of even the most basic, cursory glance into the official islamic source “reasons” – as given right in the Qur’an and sahih (official) hadiths – for a muslim women’s alleged requirement for covering up in public:

The Hijab (or Niqab, as in this specific case) is not a religious duty or fashion trend, it’s only a prison uniform!

It’s also a victim-blaming insult to both sexes; from Qur’an Sura 33:59, it is a slanderous statement that implies the muslim men (and all men, just like Muhammad himself allegedly was) are so at the mercy of their hormones, that they must molest and rape any and all women they can see; so it’s always the women’s own fault for not covering up.

It also says the muslim men have a duty to molest and rape all the infidel women for not covering up!

“O Prophet! Tell your wives and daughters and the believing women to draw their cloaks over their bodies. That will be better so that they will be known so as not to be molested. And Allâh is Most Forgiving, Most Merciful.” (Qur’ân 33:59)

So, exactly HOW will they “be known,” in the freedom sack?!

Certainly not as in: “Oh, I know her! Hi, Mary!” – but “known” as muslimas – as members of the gang!

And why is this important? “So as not to be molested!”

Which again implies that muslims DID and always WILL “molest” (i.e: rape,) all the NON-muslim (“infidel”) women!

That it’s the infidel women’s faults, because they don’t cover up, that the muslim men “must” molest (rape) them!

And the Qur’an itself confirms their holy right and duty to rape infidel women.

Muhammad also said women are created by allah as domesticated animals, created for men’s pleasure, and like fields to be tilled at will by men.

So islam is also the “Religion of Rape!”


Before Muhammad, covering up was optional; any fool could ignore it if they wanted to.

The tafsir ahadith isnads (supplemental, explanatory material appending the Qur’an) explain that the Sura in question (33:59) arose because Moe’s wives were seen by moonlight as they went potty outside his tent one night.

But, quite unlike any other self-respecting warlord, who would have had the peeping tom executed for spying on his wives, Moe agreed with the man and blamed his victims, (his own wives) perhaps because the peeper was a rich or influential member of an allied tribe.

Bottom line: “Judge” Keith Boswell should be schooled that there is no inherent “dignity” whatsoever in catering to Zunera Ishaq’s imaginings, AND FEARS OF OTHER MUSLIMS, that she should be forced to hide in a sack, by sole dint of the fear of “inevitable” rape by men, as inflicted on her mental state by her own previous, habitually misogynistic, crime-culture background.

The woman who wore the niqab at today’s citizenship ceremony was not forced by her husband or father. She insists that neither of them is really crazy about the idea.

In this case, I think she is a political activist, and an attention junkie.

As a buddhist I hesitate to do this….yet….it is so germain to the moment…..just as a reminder that moslems themselves….in certain countries and regimes….do not live up to or demand. here in Canada….and let me emphasize …..I am buddhist …..not Bahai…..


I will be up for a while……and I challenge our stalwart trolls….to come out and trivialise or dismiss this….or in any other fashion ….challenge those who have decided to make this the high ground…..as opposed to “high horse”…..to stand upon.
