Yesterday was the one-year anniversary of a horrible mass shooting at a Quebec City mosque. The trial has not yet occurred, but the accused murderer, Alexandre Bissonnette, has not been charged with terrorism or a hate crime, but with multiple counts of murder.
The political-media establishment say he is a terrorist, an Islamophobe, that he's far-right. But the only evidence offered up is who he "liked" on Facebook: Trump, Marine Le Pen — but he also "liked" Jack Layton, and feminist and atheist groups.
A trial could confirm that this was an Islamophobic attack — or it could up-end that. Just like the hijab hoax a few weeks ago in Toronto.
Yesterday, Ahmed Hussen, the Muslim migrant who has become our immigration minister, tweeted:
"We must all acknowledge & stand together against rising hatred & Islamophobia in Canada.”
I know there are a lot of Islamophobia hoaxes.
But you've got a Muslim migrant who is now a senior cabinet minister — isn’t that proof that Canada is not hateful?
Canada’s Muslim population has doubled in the past ten years — mainly through immigration. If we’re a hateful place, why are so many Muslims coming here? Why are they thriving here?
But we’re all hateful, except them. So it’s time for us to shut up, and to submit.
Do you know what the word "submit" is in Arabic?
FINALLY: Your messages to me!
