Last year, a Pakistan-born MP named Iqra Khalid introduced a motion in the house of commons to ban criticism of Islam. Just like they do back in Pakistan.
In Canada, we can criticize or even despise any religion we want — especially a religion that is implicated in so much un-Canadian politics, whether it’s violent terrorism, or the soft jihad of creeping sharia law.
But not surprisingly, the motion — called M-103 — passed.
Yesterday the Heritage committee that was studying the motion released their report.
Tonight, I'll take you through it.
Recommendation 6: Recommends that the Government of Canada create a national database to retain and analyze hate crime and hate incident data.
Does the hijab hoax in Toronto count? How about a couple of days ago, when a Muslim candidate for school trustee in Calgary lied about a racist attack against her that she just made up? How about the London, Ontario hijab attacker — who turned out to be a Muslim woman herself?
Recommendation 24: Recommends that the Government of Canada develop an education campaign to promote media literacy.
So the government will now spend money and hire staff to tell us how to criticize the media, who to trust and who not to trust?
Recommendation 30: That January 29th be designated as a National Day of Remembrance and Action on Islamophobia, and other forms of religious discrimination.
There you have it:
Turning the attack on a Quebec mosque into a national holy day on Islamopohbia. Even though that attacker hasn’t had a trial yet; hasn’t been convicted yet; has not been charged with a hate crime or terrorism.
I'll show you some of the rest, including some good recommendations from the Conservatives.
But here's the bottom line:
M-103 is a direct, sharia-style attack on western values of the separation of mosque and state, of freedom of conscience and freedom of religion and freedom of the press and freedom of speech.
And that fact that I absolutely know you haven’t heard these things on the CBC or the Globe and Mail proves my point, doesn’t it?
NEXT: Columnist and author Candice Malcolm comes on with her reaction to this report, including her concerns about the absence of a sound definition of "Islamophobia."
THEN: For an analysis of the newly released memo about Trump, Russia and the FBI, we're joined by Andrew McCarthy of the National Review.
FINALLY: I introduce you to our newest Rebel, Dr. Sebastian Gorka!
