Jagmeet Singh “heckler” condemned by Media Party: What really happened?

David MenziesMission Specialist
 

NDP leadership candidate Jagmeet Singh might make history by becoming the first Sikh leader of a major political party in Canada. Some aren’t fine with that but not because he’s Sikh, or a visible minority. 

Rather, it’s his support of the anti-free speech motion M-103— sold as an “anti-Islamophobia” motion– that has many justifiably concerned.

One such individual is Jennifer Bush of RISE Canada, a group that has been vocal about the Sharia-ization of Canada, be it the M-103 motion or the introduction of gender-apartheid mini-mosques in publicly-funded schools.

Last week Bush confronted Singh and it was slightly less than civil.

Since that clip was posted to YouTube, Bush has been condemned in numerous PC circles and, of course, she’s been ripped apart by the Media Party.

We caught up with Bush at Ford Fest to get her side of the story regarding her confrontation with Singh.

Watch as I share Jennifer’s story, in her own words.

What do you think? Was Bush too wild? Were her questions fair? Did the media spin the event, as she says — or was she over the top?

Is it racist to press a Sikh leftist as hard as pressing a white leftist?

Did you applaud her style or did it make you cringe?

I’d love to hear your thoughts, so let me know in the comments below!

Grandiosity is a symptom experienced by people with bipolar disorder during manic and hypomanic episodes. People experiencing grandiosity often describe larger-than-life feelings of superiority. In short, it is an exaggerated sense of one’s importance, power, knowledge or identity, which often has religious overtones.

It is estimated that more than half of people with bipolar disorder will experience grandiose thinking.

Alex Baldor..1 day ago….

(REALLY? Not only he has no shame he also thinks that we are fools) and that their recommendations will provide the Government with a valuable tool to counter this disturbing rise in hate.

Yep..Political babel talk..Is trudeau and his liberal followers putting our backs up against the wall?

The Western world has opened the door to a very mixed up culture. This is not Hollween. No candy for these fakers. Canada and the U,S of A. Close that door, they offer nothing to the normal world or culture. Respect to her for not putting up with the garbage they spew.

She is a concerned Canadian doing what a good Canadian does holding a campaigning politicians’ feet to the fire to explain why he voted for a Bill that will suppress Canadian’s Rights to “Free Speech” and a Motion down the road that could bring the end of Democracy in Canada under the foor of Sharia Law!
I wouldn’t vote for this unconventional Sikh with 357 Magnum pointed at my head! That is not a usual position for a person of East Indian decent! Something fishy going on here?

That is the response that I received from Michael Levitt, M.P. York Centre this Michael Levitt has no shame, no honor , no scruples, he serves his master no matter what he is what I would call a self despising Jew

Dear Alex,

Thank you for your concerns about the recently passed Motion M-103.

With the passage of M-103, the Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage has been tasked to undertake a study on how to a) reduce or eliminate systemic racism and religious discrimination and b) collect data to contextualize hate crime reports and assess the needs of impacted communities.

This study is timely and essential given the recent rise in hate incidents targeting minority communities, and in particular, the rise of anti-Semitic events across the country. This is something which I have spoken of recently in Parliament and continue to monitor closely.

I voted in favour of this motion in the same way I would have strongly supported the motion unanimously adopted condemning anti-Semitism had I been in the House in early 2015 when Irwin Cotler moved it. This motion can be found at https://irwincotler.liberal.ca/blog/motion-antisemitism.

I have taken the opportunity to sit down with Hedy Fry, the Chair of the Heritage Committee, to raise with her the issue of anti-Semitism and the fact that anti-Semitic incidents are the largest group of hate crimes in Toronto, according to the Toronto Police Service’s 2016 Hate/Bias Crime Statistical Report, and enumerated in B’nai Brith’s annual audit of anti-Semitic incidents. I have also provided suggestions of Jewish community organizations and individuals that are engaged on the front lines of this issue that could provide valuable testimony during this study.
The rise in racially and religiously motivated incidents targeting all communities in Canada is a serious and deeply concerning issue. In particular, the targeting of places of worship, community centers and schools, whether they be Jewish, Muslim, Christian or Hindu, creates anxiety and fear in our communities, especially when these institutions are frequented by families, seniors and children.

I know that these issues will be thoughtfully and thoroughly examined by the members of the Heritage Committee (REALLY? Not only he has no shame he also thinks that we are fools) and that their recommendations will provide the Government with a valuable tool to counter this disturbing rise in hate.

That is the message that I sent to Michael Levitt Jewish member of parliament asking him not to vote for M103
I am resident of this area for over 40 years and I was and I am still active in municipal, provincial and federal political events by disseminating and participating in political debates and discussions in my neighborhood and with my extended family and close friends all of them living in this area
I strongly oppose Private member’s motion M-103 called “Systemic Racism and Religious Discrimination” which singles out Islamo-phobia as a special concern that needs special treatment. If anything anti-Semitism or more accurately Jew hatred is what requires special treatment. As a Jew and holocaust survivor I have first hand experience of racism and religious discrimination.
The number of anti-Semitic incidents reported in this country – including acts of vandalism and violence – continues to outstrip similar acts against members of other faith groups. That includes Muslims, even though the Jewish community is a fraction of the size of Canada’s Muslim community.
Jewish cemeteries are vandalized, Jewish students in universities are intimidated and physically assaulted. Synagogues and Jewish cultural centers are defaced with hate messages and subject to recurring bomb threats and require hiring police and security personnel for protection. What I find ironic that the so called group that requires special protection by the Islamo-phobia bill does openly and blatantly spreads hate against the Jews from the pulpits of the radical and salafist mosques reviving hate propaganda of the Nazis that led to the Holocaust. Actually the anti-Semitic (anti Jewish) incidents are growing year over year. The media under reports antisemitic incidents from fear of being attacked as Islamophobic if the perpetrators are Muslims.
I urge you to reject motion M-103 in my opinion it will achieve the opposite thus increasing systemic Racism and religious discrimination in Canada

Jeniffer is upset about a Sikh supporting the Sharia law what should Jews say about Jewish members of parliament supporting the sharia law while the Imams spout anti Jewish sermons from the pulpits of the mosques and Jews have been harassed publicly on the streets by Muslims?

Pretty slikh jagmeet, deflect your support for sharia in Canada by playing the victim…
Oh wait, been done again and again. You should be a liberal. Oh wait, no difference.
commented 2017-09-15 22:30:50 -0400
Well, it’s pretty obvious that NDP Singh is a wily politician (good practice if he advances in the next election!) and, like all the other muzzie-loving shariah-bots, he’s fearful of offending “the Prophet!” (piss be upon him!). Just another awful leftist under that colorful turban!

Any politician who plays along with these slight of tongue tricks are not worthy of holding the public’s trust.

LIza: What I find so particularly annoying is the deliberate misleading of many of these types of comments. If I got it wrong and misrepresented someone else’s views I would want to correct it or allow them to state for themselves the way they wanted it portrayed. I do not see that attitude with many who are way too comfortable with the smear partly because they have found it to be an effective tool to pull one over on the public and trigger emotions and partly because the know in all likelihood they are going to get away with it.

Steve Wood: LOL I am confused. Did you mean Sikh faith or Sheik faith? Or was it a deliberate play on words? In any event I get you. I think. LOL

Hey Dave ill start by correcting a statment you said during your intro jennifer is not i repeat not part of rise Canada .

This whole thing is crazy who dare question a brown man of the sheik faith thats crazy but it it where a white politician no fuss would have been made .

Absolutely Edward, Cenk of the Young Turks has defamed Jennifer Bush by HIS wrong information and then calling her a racist. It looks like libel suit to me. He has not just defamed Jennifer Bush but all conservatives and he shouldn’t be allowed to get away with it. The Young Turks should publically apologise and set the record straight by playing the video of Jennifer being interviewed by Menzies, where she clearly says that she asked him why as a SIKH, why he would support m103 and support Sharia in Canada. Cenk said she was addressing him as a Muslim and didn’t know the difference. Cenk Uygur is the ignoramus.

I get tired of the endless slander against Conservatives as being racists. If I made a mistake which I do from time to time mostly due to inaccurate reporting but I can get it wrong from time to time but when I do I gladly correct it and apologize when needed. Yet we see open slanderous comments smearing people as racists from the left we seldom see them back down as they know the chance of a lawsuit is highly unlikely. So these smears get to live on in the minds of the public because no one made them eat their words. I know law suits are expensive and time consuming but stories appearing in media should be held to a higher account if those news venues won’t print corrections or apologies.

It speaks heaps about the man, A Rebel Fan.

Why would anyone go into politics if they didn’t want to answer questions about their own policies? It’s pretty convenient to label someone as racist rather than answer a question the person has about your policies. Very fishy.

Jagmeet would be an awesome pick for NDP leader because he’d be in a great position to peel off a lot of votes from Trudeau. He has in fact borrowed the entire Sunny Ways playbook and is well on his way to becoming Sunny Ways Supersized (young, hip, fluent in zen-ish patter, not white….). He won’t become PM of course, for reasons others have already touched upon and because he’ll be the NDP leader, but he would stand to pick up a lot of leftists and middle of the road types who will be feeling let down by Justin by then.

I doubt that he’s a fan of sharia or it’s related religious affiliation but true to the Sunny Ways Playbook he’s tap dancing around telling everyone stuff that sounds kinda sorta like the stuff they wanna hear. So it’s love all around and let’s not get into the grimy details.

His chances of securing the NDP Boss position are tenuous though. He is not at all popular with the hard-liners who make up the NDP old guard. Many have already come out to slag him for his wishy washiness on Israel and fuzziness about old faves like nationalization of industry and so on. The old guard is a pretty formidable block, made up of ideologues, unionists, young and old communists and various other ists who aren’t into peace, love and understanding . The old guard has decided NDP leadership contests since there was an NDP. They might however splinter between the unionists (who will line up behind Charlie Angus) and the ideologues and communists who have already thrown in their lot with Nikki Ashton, so Jagmeet might have a shot at the prize. I’m stocking up on popcorn.

Not to worry, there is no way Singh will ever become PM because, to put it bluntly, Quebec will never vote for a man with a turban who barely speaks French. Never. And of course you cannot end up at Langevin Block without winning Quebec.

Anyhow, who is he trying to impress with this turban? What is the point. Is it to ‘stick it’ to the white man? Is it to grab some of Justin’s groupies (voters)? At best Singh will split the Left vote.

For a balanced view of what really went down read Anthony Furey’s piece in The Toronto Sun:

Leave it to the Young Turks to get it all wrong wrong wrong and Cenk complains that Jennifer Bush didn’t do her homework and has the bloody nerve to call her a racist!
The audio of the interaction is much better in this link, much as I hate to give The Young Turks any clicks.

Liza Rosie, it was comment that was posted on a Ujjal Dosanjh’s Facebook page regarding the questions he asked, he is former Premier of B.C and former Federal MP, " Ujjal Dosanjh
"How can one support a secular state in Canada and a theistic separatist state Khalistan in India: Ask Jagmeetsingh., The video was posted on his page on September 9th by “DrBelrup Patrola,” I think we found one person that supports your view of Jagmeet Singh…guess what? She’s seems mentally unstable, probably under the influence of meth". I was not happy with his comment.

That’s the NDP. Not surprising since they are extreme leftists, therefore in favor of sharia, mass-immigration and anti-white racists.

TRISHULA DAS, what is this?
@ Trish Das, “I have been reading the comments on this incident, the slut shamming and calling her a meth addict are appalling.”

I have just gone through all the comments and there is not one that says any of those things. Why would you make that up, when it’s not there? I am a little confused.

Resolute is good, hysterical is bad (makes it too easy for the enemy). I support her efforts, because she got off the couch and went to the event and spoke out.

I think she should sue all the msm outlets. No seriously, because it puts the issues on the table, makes him look bad and her look good in the end. One thing Conservatives need to figure out, is that battles are won through the courts nowadays, not the msm!!
