Toronto Star redefines “Islamophobia,” then finds it everywhere — even making up examples

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

"Ontario facing ‘epidemic of Islamophobia’ survey finds,” says the Toronto Star headline.

The Star is quoting a survey sponsored by the same people who brought you those anti-white, pro-Muslim posters last month, after the ISIS terrorist attack on an Orlando gay nightclub.

The Star reports:

“Only a third of Ontarians have a positive impression of the religion and more than half feel its mainstream doctrines promote violence (an anomaly compared to other religions).”

So Islamophobia has now been redefined to mean anyone who doesn't like Islam?

Islamophobia is so bad, the Star has to make up examples, citing the “woman wearing a hijab [who] was attacked at a supermarket in London [Ontario] in June.”

Except TheRebel.media’s Andrew Lawton exposed that as a hoax.

I’m glad we’re Islamophobic if it means being afraid of Islam. We should be.

I don’t need more polls to find out what Canadians think of Muslims. What I’d like to see are some polls of Muslims, to find out what they think of us, and our values:

Freedom of speech, our laws (not sharia), tolerance of gays and Jews.

Do you think the Star would report that..?

NEXT: Over the weekend, Black Lives Matter Toronto marched in the city’s Pride parade as a “honoured group.” But then they held a sit-in in the middle of the event, issued demands, and called the Pride organizers racist.

Lorrie Goldstein of the Toronto Sun talks about what happened. It’s incredible, and disturbing.

THEN Professor Tom Flanagan and I talk about Jason Kenney’s recent speech at an Alberta “United the Right” event. It looks like he’s running for the leadership of the Alberta Provincial Conservatives, but is that really where he belongs?

FINALLY: Your letters to me!

It all goes back to the Xenophobia labels liberals cast on us.

When in reality the literal meaning of xenophobe is a foreign person in a foreign land that can not or will not adapt to the host. Funny how it gets sound around and aimed at the Canadian people. Hey were headed to war and guess what! Lots of our young Canadians are about to be forced I to military duty. That is how they wipe out or next generations and replace it with these noobs.
I suggest every one refuse to acquiesce. They can’t lock us all up. Let’s end our new. Canadian refugees back over seas to the russian border. Hey I know, they can try and take back Chechnya. Lmao. I’d gladly support that move. It would be over in a few days .

Peter Babich said… “Equality isn’t natural. The oak isn’t equal to the vine. The lion isn’t equal to the deer. We aren’t all the same, only in spirit.” I guess we disagree…equality does not mean ‘sameness’. We are all different AND equal in the sight of God…as I see it. We just haven’t learned how to live as equals. The first rule is “all things that ye would that other do to you, do ye even so to them”…can you imagine a world where everyone lived like this? That is what equal is. It is what we do to others, not what we are.

Identity politics and victim hood is just Marxism coming to full bloom in our culture, bringing with it an end to Merit as a source of status, contrary to good economics, but who needs money or wealth?

This ongoing narrative from the left is so damaging to children because, more and more, children are being used to promote these agendas…they used black ‘children’ marching into gunfire, to end racism in the South (I don’t mind stopping racism, but using children is an egregious tactic). Children are being used to bring in socialist (Marxist…let’s call it by its real name) gender confusion and Marxist global weather politics (whose agenda admittedly has nothing to do with climate change, but to transfer funds from wealthy countries to poorer nations and bring about Marxist totalitarian ‘social justice’)…

To hell with reason or protecting children from rapacious Marxist adults who are successfully preying on their little sensitive minds and setting them up as pawns to be used to bring in the completion of their experiment, no matter how emotionally damaged the children will become between psychological damage caused by fear of the world ending, to indoctrination to sexual perversion in elementary school…a la Dr. Alfred C. Kinsey and his sexual experiments on little children. Google “children at the pride parade” and this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IuvAGJV5E-w

In fact, perhaps the biggest victims of the global warming scam are the children: “Some children are already anxious about global warming and begin to obsess, understandably, about the future, unmoved by the small reassurances adults may attempt to put forth,” according to a National Wildlife Federation report.

And now young children are being exposed to Muslim adult men in their classrooms with no thought for their safety (what sane adult would bring any adult man from an unfamiliar culture, into a high school to “learn” alongside teens?…and just remember these were MEN not women….why? And how much education are these children getting with the confusion this brings?

This overall agenda has NOTHING to do with skin colour or gender at all. It is just a way to make sure that no one can use ACCOMPLISHMENTS to get anywhere. Now I understand why the teachers’ unions are so agreeable with dumbing down children: because the new status unionized teachers have been CREATING, via Marxist indoctrination in the schools, has been based on one’s ‘identity’ card and education has become nothing more than a social experiment to allow the most ‘identity-challenged’ to have status based not on merit but on identity. We are just seeing the Marxist ideology coming to fruition in our land. This is a social revolution…perhaps we should call it what it is.

If all this was just to bring in equality I would be all for it. But it is being done to destroy our economy and bring in full blooded Marxism. Anything that “conditions” children or adults to be conform to an idea is seriously damaging to the person or culture. That is why political correctness is damaging our culture…it is being used to ‘condition’ us to conform to an ideology with which we, by definition, do not agree. Perhaps we need to learn tolerance for radical ideas that offend us, rather than politicized agreement…freedom rather than restriction…openness rather than the closed door that political correctness creates.

There is a better way.
…I can only hope this truly is political correctness devouring itself because to that I say AMEN!

Ezra keep up the conscientious reports on Islam…… Canadians have very little options for the truth on Islam .
Don’t fall prey to Islamofauxbia …… fauxbia ~!?!
commented 2016-07-05 23:33:27 -0400
I read the Toronto Star report, and although it shows a lot of misinformation and even suspicion about Islam and Muslims, it also reveals a fairly high level of tolerance. Don’t sell Ontario short.
commented 2016-07-05 19:30:04 -0400
Black lives matters are all just a bunch of race baiters. Like Wynnes Ontario needs any help inflaming.

I am rooting for Kenney to make some sense out of the mess that is the Alberta right. Somebody has to do it. Uniting the right has to happen in Alberta. Kenney knows this is serious business, and the entire country will feel the repercussions of it. That’s why he is considering this over a federal run. I hope all the rats jump ship and scramble back where they belong, with the liberals.

I have retardaphobia ! I’m scared of Justine and Nutley !
commented 2016-07-05 14:48:15 -0400
I will pass out from laughing too hard if the big announcement turns out to be that a Wildrose MLA is resigning so that Kenny can run in the by-election.
We’ll see what happens…

I think the TO police should agree and stay home next parade out of respect for BLM no police no parade period let them get their own security I also believe that everyone is equal that in it self makes me racist by saying no one is above another
commented 2016-07-05 09:54:35 -0400
The craziest demand made by Black Lives Matter was that the police withdraw from the parade altogether. In light of Orlando it sounds like a massacre in the planning and the police have said that is never going to happen.

Great survey. I have hope in Ontario.

“I stopped reading the star a long time ago nor will I tune in to cbc. I find it difficult to understand why people still do.”

I read the star editorials and columns from time to time – need a little humour in my life.

Islamophobia? Nuts to that. What we do see in every country Muslims have migrated to is “Integration Phobia” where they refuse to integrate into that society and instead create trouble! History is rife with it!

Taking a leap of faith , we can presume that a report in The Star of a motor vehicle accident at the corner of Bloor and Young is factual and true. Other than that, the most simplistic, casual and mundane of daily occurrences , EVERYTHING ELSE appearing in The Star is a fabrication ,lie or intentional distortion of the truth. And anything that truly challenges their myths and false narratives may never see the light of day in print. Same for the CBC.
This giant distortion that the Star and other propaganda outlets are pushing is having a direct effect on us personally. I was called an islamophobe last week and lost a friendship over the issue. That is nothing compared to the people in San Bernardino that failed to report the extraordinarily suspicious activity of the terrorist couple who perpetrated the massacre at the Christmas Party.
The Star’s mollification of the threat Islam poses to modern society makes them totally complicit in future terrorist attacks.

I would vote for Kenny for Unite the right. & I wish that real conservatives would have one party. A house divided against itself will not stand. we need a house in order. guess we will see what’s left of our province in 3 years after notley is finished with it.

I guess this ontario newspaper thinks that every rational person is stupid. considering liberal people don’t seem to have rational thinking, but I think the more blood that is shed ,the eyes and minds should start to open after every murder by a Islamic person.
commented 2016-07-05 02:55:09 -0400
Was I wrong to laugh my ass off at the pride parade getting protested by black lives matter?

The CBC did an interview with some woman from black lives matter. It seemed like even the CBC drew their line at the gay pride parade getting blocked.

Oh man it is going to be so much fun when Sharia patrols start happening in Toronto. Hopefully they have them around the Stars offices.
commented 2016-07-05 01:27:55 -0400
The Star is such a joke. By the way Black Lies Matter and Pride parade goers, the left and the Star holds you below radical Islam on the PC ladder, if you do not know that yet , it is going to be quite funny when you find out.

Equality isn’t natural. The oak isn’t equal to the vine. The lion isn’t equal to the deer. We aren’t all the same, only in spirit. If we were all the same, morning conversation would be, (“How are you, Fine, Yes I know because I am too”) far too boring. Not directed at anyone, but humble yourselves people. We can’t all have the stature of Jason Kenney, who I would want in federal office, but would also like to see lead the Alberta separate government. Even my loyalties are emnities. I’m so confused, I can’t imagine what the rest of Alberta and Canada think. You better stop this Rebel, it’s making me crazy. The CBC only tells nice stuff. As if I ever watch it. (I heard it from a retard)
commented 2016-07-05 00:53:23 -0400
Why doesn’t The Toronto Star report on the 20% of Ontarians who have been directly involved in sponsoring Syrian refugees? That is more than in the rest of Canada combined. Some people in Ontario may have narrow views, but that doesn’t stop others from rolling up their sleeves and getting to work.
commented 2016-07-05 00:20:23 -0400
If you look at history, Christianity was doing quite well before Islam. Lucifer knew he had to disrupt it. Pride? Wasn’t that what had him banished?

The crescent moon is the sign of the highest pagan god " ILAAH" look it up. Do you really believe an angel spoke to Mohammed?

When I see the kind of slanted coverage offered by the MSM and the refusal to acknowledge anything other than their own biased view point I find myself imagining if this is what Germany was like when the Jews lost their voice when they became the state enemy.
commented 2016-07-04 23:42:10 -0400
There seems to be a perverse relationship between the amount of attacks committed by Muslims and the amount the MSM plays up the Muslim victim card while purposefully ignoring ignoring and downplaying important stories we are often privy on The Rebel and slandering anyone who dares question their narrative. Yes Ezra The Rebel does talk allot about Muslim issues but no one else in Canada is willing. It kind of makes me wonder who really is behind the curtain at the TorStar.
