Trend emerges from M-103 hearings: Imaginary racism lays foundation for real censorship

David MenziesMission Specialist

Hearings for Liberal MP Iqra Khalid’s “anti-Islamophobia” motion M-103 have begun and after only a few days of testimony, things are already getting downright disturbing.

Liberal MP Heddy Fry who lied about cross burnings in Prince George, British Columbia, heads the committee, which in some ways makes her the perfect choice.

After all, she’s an expert when it comes to alerting Canadians to problems of intolerance that don’t exist and now she’s chairing a committee for a problem of intolerance that doesn’t exist.

We still don’t have a definition for “Islamophobia”, a term coined in the ’90’s by the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization as a way to advance Sharia law.

Far from being merely a feel-good, toothless motion condemning discrimination, M-103 lays a foundation that may lead to censorship laws curtailing freedom of speech based on the hurt feelings of one particular group.

The most disturbing testimony came from Michel Juneau-Katsuya, a former CSIS and RCMP officer who said this about Quebec media:

“Multiple times Quebec hosts have been guilty, if I may use that word of racism, bigotry, etc., what are we waiting to pull a license away from those guys?”

He then went on to criticize what’s known as “trash radio”, the descriptor given to Quebec radio stations that swing right of centre.

Even The Rebel got a mention as a site that another former law enforcement officer suggested was “amplifying the voices of the extreme right”.

Like so-called “trash radio” stations, we might need to be shut down in the name of “keeping the peace.” We wouldn’t want to incite a peace-loving group that is prone to violence if their sensibilities are offended.

It’s hard not to see how the stars are aligning.

A committee headed up by a progressive who sees imaginary racism is listening to testimony from ex-law enforcement advocating that media outlets that go “too far” in their criticism of Islam should perhaps be consigned to the slaughterhouse of political correctness.

What could possibly go wrong for the future of free speech in Canada?

Hedy Fry is our Nancy Pelosi. Well past her expiry date joining in to make trouble where none exists. Our tax dollars pay for this crap.

These people are all making a big mistake. Have none of them any knowledge of history? This shutdown of free speech and thought is evil government overreach and if they are allowed to continue with their agenda you will only be safe if you join them, hide from them or fight them en masse. This merging of Islam and neo Marxism is going to be bad news. They want to see Nazi racial supremacists? This is what it will look like. They will be as brown as the shirts the Nazis wore on their backs. The only racism that exists in Canada is the racism Iqra Khalid brought with her into Canada when she came to our beautiful free country from Pakistan, a country so overflowing with Islamic supremacy that it is looking for a place to spread out and infect.

If I relocated to another part of the world to live out my life in peace, I wouldn’t be making these sorts of demands on the host country good enough to want to share their freedom with me.

This must be challenged.

This is serious stuff and the best they can come up with to head the committee is a liar. Then, they get someone who used to work at CSIS many moons ago to testify about censorship for Islamophobia. Would this signal that Canada is in trouble? I think so.

There was never any doubt this would happen.

We are approaching the Sweden of today and racing there as fast as the evil government of Canada today can get us there.

Fry is like Monsef. Both of them should have been required to resign after they were caught LYING. Katsuya sounds like a shill for the Muslim Brotherhood, not someone who’s worked for CSIS. Is no one presenting the case against this madness at this committee?

In Quebec, a commission on systemic racism and islamophobia is starting soon. They will hear preselected groups behind closed doors, 3 of these groups are related to the Muslim Brotherhood and other terrorist organizations. It was revealed recently in the newspapers that one of the man who will testify has founded an islamic school in Montreal founded by Koweit, has worked for the Muslim Brotherhood and is also behind M103. As the article said, the Liberals, both provincial and federal, have opened the door to the Brotherhood in gov’t.

The fix was in from the beginning. The final report is probably already written and Queen’s Printers is only awaiting the end of these sham hearings to publish.

What is annoying, next to the subjugation of freedom, is the money waste on the sham. Caucasianphobe Fry could simply have stated the conclusion, which is already decided, at the beginning, said there was no need for further hearings, and saved money. After all, that is how China’s basic dictatorship operates.

I really don’t know why any of these ew proposed laws can’t be challenged as afar as the constitution goes. CANADIAN CHARTER OF RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS

Jt is setting Canadians up for a huge fall. Who better than the batty Hedy Fry whose main claim to political fame is that she believes her own lies more than we do? After he roasted Canadians in his speech to the UN, what more can he think up to add more insult to injury. We are really watching a witch hunt here and conservatives haven’t even brought the subject up, yikes.
