“Islamophobia” to be outlawed in Canada
Turns out, there are a lot of people concerned about free speech in Canada. And concerned about losing it.
“It’s great to be in a room full of severely normal people,” said Conservative leadership candidate Dr. Kellie Leitch, drawing cheers.
About 1,200 people showed up to The Rebel’s Rally For Free Speech at Canada Christian College to protest Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government’s M-103 motion being debated in the House of Commons this week, which many criticism is, in essence, an anti-blasphemy law seen in many Muslim countries that prevents criticism of Islam.
“We need to fight back against all of this politically correct nonsense,” said Leitch. And they were doing just that.
When it comes to Liberal Erin Mills MP Iqra Khalid’s motion to “condemn Islamophobia and all forms of systemic racism and religious discrimination,” the crowd’s stance was clear. They don’t want it.
“Justin Trudeau says people who are opposed to M-103 are fringe,” said Leitch. “Justin Trudeau, you are fringe.”
Every speaker brought similar sentiments, whether it be Ezra Levant, Faith Goldy, PC leadership candidates Leitch, Chris Alexander, Brad Trost, Pierre Lemieux or Dr. Charles McVety of Canada Christian College.
“This is grassroots,” said Goldy. “If we don’t stand up now historians will look back and say no one stood up for free speech that our soldiers laid down their lives for.”
I have said Khalid’s motion should be ripped up for good. Canada needs a lot of things, but not government deciding who and what is Islamophobic. Scary a government would even try.
