The CBC/The State Broadcaster/MSNBC North has proven exactly why many Canadians opposed M103 and the lack of a definition regarding the word “Islamophobia”. To the left and to the CBC, any criticism of Islam is 'Islamophobic' and must be silenced.
What exactly were the so-called “Islamophobic” comments? The CBC article doesn't say.
“You’re implementing an Islamic dominance rule in this country. That’s what you’re doing. We support Canadian values. No beheadings. No female genital mutilation. No child marriage. We don’t allow that in Canada. That’s what this books [Quran] says. We don’t religion in schools. The money dollar [from Saudi Arabia] is your pocket making decision for you. Mohammad the pedophile, and a warlord and a rapist. [Religion] does not belong in schools. Go to Pakistan. We will be in a Sharia [Islamic] Law state. It’s a book of hate [the Quran]. Islam will kill you. Islam will rape. Free speech. Free speech.”
According to the CBC, being critical of Islam and its prophet is “Islamophobia”. But calling for Jews to be killed doesn't even get called “hate” by the CBC. In fact, any reference to “hate” in the article is about Montreal's hate crimes unit or when quoting someone else.
But it's not just the CBC who jumps the gun and calls criticism of Islam “Islamophobia”. Other members of the Media Party are calling the comments “anti-Muslim” despite the fact Islam, not individual Muslims were criticized.
As CIJ News reports, the Globe and Mail claimed:
“Police intervened at a Toronto-area school board meeting on Wednesday evening after members in the audience shouted anti-Muslim rhetoric, tore pages from a Koran and stepped on the religious text.”
“At the Peel board’s meeting Wednesday night, tempers flared and police — who have been called in to recent meetings for extra security — cleared the room after about 80 protesters could not be calmed. One ripped up a copy of the Quran, and stomped on it, as others yelled anti-Muslim comments.”
As if we needed another reason to sell the CBC. If the State Broadcaster wants to be Al Jazeera Maple, they shouldn't be getting a nickel from taxpayers. And quite frankly, I've jihad enough.
