Farber defends “hijab hoaxers” at expense of real victims of hate crimes

David MenziesMission Specialist

 

In the aftermath of the false claim of an attack on an 11-year-old Toronto Muslim girl, "sorry" seems to be the hardest word for elected officials.

The response from the Media Party was pretty bad too, but by far the worst media analysis post-hijab hoax came in Bernie Farber’s logic-defying column in Now Magazine.

The inanity begins with a headline that puts the word “hoax” in quotation marks, and continues from there.

For one thing, Bernie’s miffed by how the perpetrators of the hoax are being treated. He also spreads fake news when he misstates that “Islamophobia” is up “600 per cent’ in the last year.

As former executive director of the Mosaic Institute, Farber diligently fought against Holocaust denial, which is good, but in this case, he’s choosing to hang on to a shred of a chance that the hijab-shredding incident is real, even though police and the family say it was a hoax.

By going to bat for the hoaxers, Farber yet again proves that he doesn’t understand hoaxes like this do a disservice to the real victims of hate crimes.

Drew that Islamic clown who ran over a police officer and others never did get charged with terror. Justin didn’t want it to clash with his ISIS buddies he was about to allow back. Terrorist is such a hurtful word, don’t you think?

This clown probably thinks the people who got run down in Edmonton committed a hate crime by getting their blood on the Uhaul which resulted in a cleaning charge added to the rental bill.

600% increase? LMAO! Well maybe if you go by REPORTED ones which includes all the PHONY ones.
And Anti Semitic hate crimes have increased and well know why.

Since 9/11 – IN THE NAME OF ISLAM (SATAN): 34,677 Attacks, 225,546 Killed, 304,933 Injured that we know of.

Billy Howard, to be clear, so no one thinks there is even a remote possibility that the 600% stat is correct in the context Farber presented it…… that stat was the TOTAL of government perceived hate crimes online involving all groups, not just Islam, so it was a completely disingenuous thing for him to say.

There is no large increase at all, and anti Semitic insults/crimes out weigh any insults/crimes against Islam or Muslims. Who can ever trust any number the government or the apologists come out with again, now that they are proven liars.

Most of it is made up bull and their very broad definition for ‘hate crime’ is really what ever they feel like, so it means nothing.

Another idiot lusting for Sharia Law in Canada………..!

Great commentary David!
Farber is an apologist for Islam; as with most apologists, they don’t have their facts straight. There will be a number of people who believe his manufactured stats and leftist regressive position.
As others have commented, this false report to the police and subsequent condemnation of Canadians via PM; Wynne; John Tory; other politicians; msm & muslim groups was orchestrated at such a rapid speed, a thinking person arrived at the correct conclusion when a press conference was held in the school library with minor children being interviewed. Add to that, one of the reporters asked several leading questions!
No doubt the LPC is quite disappointed this plot fell apart so quickly….Khalid’s motion needed some traction in Parliament, as the Committee will soon be presenting it’s findings!

If there really is a 600% increase in Islamophobia, that just shows Trudeau’s strategy of division is working. Justin is working hard to pit races, religions, and other groups of Canadians against each other, and stats like that just embolden him.
Divide and conquer, says Our Dear Leader.

Thanks for catching that 600% lie David Menzies, and the rest of the lying spin in his article.
For Farber to use that stat to describe an Islamophobia rise, is outrageous for any so called journalist. Nothing but Islamopropaghanda. Deceptive and malicious.

Farber is dismayed at Canadians not appreciating being branded with ridiculous terms like racist (Islam is not a race) as well as completely fabricated terms like the mis defined Islamophobia. His outrage pales in comparison to the utter disgust we feel about the actions of baiters like him and the people responsible for putting this child up to this charade. These episodes of spin, are a an affront to the name of the GOOD and GENEROUS Canadian people. Shame on you Farber and those who echo your nonsense.
It is an affront on this country. It makes me sick.

Farber, why aren’t you writing columns on the Edmonton pool molestation’s? Oh yeah the perp wasn’t a male Caucasian Canadian. and the victim(s) (five) weren’t from the ‘preferred’ faith.
I tell ya, that’s some misplaced white guilty conscience right there. Morally vacuous and morally bankrupt.
It is exhausting fighting the lies, but not countering this B.S. is not an option.

“I do not see this as a hoax,there has been no Canadian blood on the ground for some time, Our new Migrants are in need of a thrill, in my opinion it was a blatant attempt by Muslims to stir up hatred against Canadians. Perhaps with the hope of arousing the Inbred to instigate a new Terrorist attack.”

With the exception of a Sharia lover, there is nothing in this world as pathetic as a self-hating Jew

KEITH BARNES, your comment is odd in that it is exactly what I was thinking when this story first broke on the news. I too thought that this was not a hoax but an attempt to stir up condemnation for non-Muslims by Muslims, so that the government and the Muslims could then say “see we really do need M103, and by God we don’t need to debate it any longer – pass this bill so that we can arrest non-Muslims for their hatred of Muslims”.
I also firmly believe that this blatant lie was perpetrated by Jihadi Justin’s Liberals, with the help of his Muslim friends.
commented 2018-01-25 12:05:30 -0500
Oy!
Bernie, Bernie, Bernie, why don’t you deal with your Jewish guilt and give the rest of us a break already?

Our governments have chosen to bring in people who’s wish it is to dominate us. A perfect partner for a government that wishes to control us utterly. To keep us in line these manufactured ‘assaults’ on Muslims will continue to happen when needed.

Somebody put this girl up to it and somebody put her parents up to it. It would be good to root out who or what organization and under who’s direction this was pulled off.

I am so done with this Islam bullying. Anyone who buys into this needs to clear their head of all the subterfuge and think straight for a minute, because we are being taken for fools.

There is no logic in bringing in so much Islam, none. If this was about helping people we would be helping them in their own countries.
If this was about needed population for our dwindling one, jobs, people to pay for old age pensions and taxes :
- the government would be encouraging Canadians to procreate not abort.
-We would be bringing in people who have a chance of fitting in like the Christians and Yazidis in the M.E. and the white South Africans who are being butchered over there as we speak.
Not a culture that is the antithesis of ours, who look down on us, want to subjugate us and dominate our country and it looks like our government has told them they can. And if we don’t do something, they will, and they will tell us ‘it is better this way’. The lines are being drawn and we didn’t draw them.

There will be lots more hoaxes manufactured incidents to make Canadians look bad. They will be happening when needed.
