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!

I agree with you.
I’ve been having ‘discussions’ with someone on various lighthearted subjects such as religions, politics, social issues, just the standard run of the mill kinda conversations, only to find out she gets her information from the late night talk shows, eg. Trevor Noah, Jimmy Kimmel.
Now she is no shmuck. She was a highly accomplished professional. One would think she would think/know better….
HOW does one compete with this when they are basing their conclusions/argument/position on so called comedians?

So fully a third of Ontarians think Islam is just peachy and half don’t think it’s doctrines promote violence. Now that is scary.

Black Lives Matter only when they are getting attention. They would reject a cure for cancer because they wouldn’t be sick anymore.

I have lived in Toronto for over 20yrs. And I do not find Toronto racist as Black Lives Matters claim. The Toronto Police Chief is Black. Black Lives Matters claims everyone is racist against Blacks and Muslims, AND THEY BELIEVE WHITES AND POLICE SHOULD BE KILLED. The strange thing about Black lives Matters is that they are funded by George Soros, a white billionaire Jew, who turned his own people over to the Nazis in WW2, and claims it was the best time in his life. Follow the money trail, and the question is why would George Soros support this group. George Soros also supports Obama and Justin Trudeau anti Jewish and anti-christian position, while supporting radical Islam, he also supports open boarders and mass Muslim immigration in Europe and north America.

Why doesn’t The Star report on the 20% of Ontarions 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.

I think Kenny knows there is no room for his brand of Conservatism. He is more like Mr. Harper,that’s not bad in my book.But I think he would do better provincially.

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. Sometimes I meet people who say they get most of their news on CBC or CTV. I ask them if they have heard of some of the stories that come out on The Rebel. Often they have not and they wonder where I get my news. They are sometime shocked to hear my take on the MSM. A few converts at a time…………

The regressive leftards are cannibalizing themselves, I wonder what they think as they taste each other

Don’t expect the Star to let reality get in the way of their narrative.

Black Lives Matters are George Soros’ brown shirts.

Are there any Conservatives left in the PC Party of Alberta?

WHO is The TorontoStar? Who are these fools who get to hide behind a Trademark or a Corporate name, while they slander and disgrace Canada. List their names and show me their pictures so I know who the real enemy is. They do that to individuals they don’t like or they disagree with. At least let the country should know who these individual fools are so they can’t benefit from anonymity, attacking from the shadows.

Realistically, based on the weekend in Iraq, Bangladesh and Saudi Arabia to name three, it is muslims who need to be islamophobic.

The BLM are racists! And the Ontario Liberals are garbage.

How come no one tells the Muslems to stop hating Jewish people. They openly speake of their hate of Jewish people. Perhaps this should be against the law too.

Never confuse “Islamophobia” (the rational fear of a demonstrably hegemonic xenophobic death cult caliphate aspirations) with “Islamo-nausia” which is the natural revulsion a reasoning individual has at the fetid output of manipulative special interest propagandists.

Raggedy-assed jihadi posing doesn’t scare me in the least, but watching pussyfart proggy media sell rejection of this retarded supremacist Islamic crap as a “phobia” does nauseate me.

I am not afraid of islamists, rather I just despise these goat-humping peasants.
no ‘phobia’ here.

A phobia is a type of anxiety disorder. It is a strong, irrational fear of something that poses little or no real danger. Islam simply does not qualify as “posing little or no real danger”.
