Every time the Western world gets frontlashed by Islamic terrorism, the mainstream media runs to dig up signs of a "backlash" on the mean streets of Canada.
This week, ever since the Paris terror attacks, the media has been tripping over itself, trying to find confirmation of their opinion that white, conservative Canada is racist, reactionary and violent.
Here’s what they’ve found so far:
Dateline: Peterborough, a small town East of Toronto known primarily as a coffee stop on the way to the Kawartha Lakes cottage country, and as the hub of the ex-urban retirement community boom
The night after the Paris ISIS attacks, a suspicious fire occurred in the town’s only mosque after what appeared to be forced-entry through a rear window. No one was hurt, no one has claimed responsibility, the police have no suspects, no witnesses have come forward, and the community has already raised 50% more funds than were needed to repair the damage.
Dateline: Kitchener, a small city west of Toronto best known for being a small city west of Toronto.
The door of a Hindu temple was vandalized the night after the Paris ISIS attacks. No one was hurt, no one has claimed responsibility, the police have no suspects, no witnesses have come forward, and no one can answer why someone would attack a Hindu temple if they were looking to backlash against Muslims.
Dateline: Toronto’s Flemingdon Park neighbourhood, home to the largest concentration of Muslim immigrants in Canada.
A hijab-wearing woman claims that, at 3:00 pm Monday, on a sidewalk between her apartment and her childrens’ school, two white men attacked her from behind, called her a terrorist, beat her in the stomach, and stole her cell phone. The woman has refused to be identified and refuses to be interviewed by the media. She was taken to the hospital for examination and released the same day. No suspects have been identified, no witnesses have come forward, and all security camera footage viewed by the police so far has “not been helpful”.
Either we old-stock Canadians really suck at our backlashing skills, or we continue to prove that, as a rule, we just don’t do that kind of thing.
Yet politicians seem to want to insist that we do, giving benefit of the doubt to those who want to pin these alleged crimes on traditional Canadian society.
From somewhere in the air between Turkey and the Phillippines, new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau chose to weigh in against the racists and Islamophobes backlashing against the Muslim community.
Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale, a trained lawyer, joined in on the fun, railing against “vigilante retribution” despite the obvious lack of evidence.
And Mayor John Tory, the ultimate member of Toronto’s old-stock white-privilege society, used the opportunity to make a photo-op appearance at the local public school, exploiting the “Islamophobia” narrative to pander to the local activists.
Does the media really believe that white Canada is ready to explode in backlash against Islamist assaults overseas?
Perhaps they do, betraying their own bias against middle-class “old-stock” Canadian culture.
Do politicians really think it’s wise to exploit unproven allegations for perceived political gain? Apparently so, unconcerned that their actions simply divide and inflame divisions in the very land they are supposed to unite.
Do Muslim community organizers think there’s something to be gained by having incidents like these reported in a particular way, to maximum negative implication against their host Canadian society?
On that one, you can be the judge.
