Canada Inching Toward ‘Islamophobia’ Law

(Daily Caller) Canada is inching toward a broadly-based law that would codify “Islamophobia” as a hate crime without even defining Islamophobia or demonstrating that it is a phenomenon requiring legal action.

After first passing a motion that condemns Islamophobia, last month, Iqra Khalid, a Member of Parliament (MP) from the governing Liberals, tabled Motion M-103 in the House of Commons. The motion demands that Islamophobia be treated as a crime without even bothering to define the offense.

Thomas Mulcair, the leader of the leftist New Democrat Party, read the first motion in the House of Commons:

“Mr. Speaker, in a moment I will be seeking unanimous consent for an important motion based on the e-petition sponsored by the Hon. Member for Pierrefonds–Dollard that asks that we, the House of Commons, condemn all forms of Islamophobia,” Mulcair said.

Though he did not receive the unanimous consent that he craved because some official opposition Conservative MPs shouted, “Nay,” Mulcair’s motion passed. No mainstream media outlet reported this parliamentary activity; some social media blogs and private news websites discussed the motion.

Then last month, Liberal MP Khalid introduced another more comprehensive motion that “the government should recognize the need to quell the increasing public climate of hate and fear… condemn Islamophobia and all forms of systemic racism and religious discrimination and take note of House of Commons’ petition e-411 and the issues raised by it…and request that the Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage undertake a study.”

Khalid recommends that Islamophobia — whatever that is — be treated as a hate crime by the federal government and that it “collect data to contextualize hate crime reports and to conduct needs assessments for impacted communities.”

This motion was tabled for debate. Khalid’s communications assistant, Anas Marwah, told The Daily Caller that they expect the motion to come up for discussion in a couple of weeks. “The motion has technically not been introduced, but just tabled; it may be up for first reading in early February,” he said.

The motion has received virtually no mention in the mainstream media. The Rebel Media, a conservative news service based in Toronto, Ontario, has flagged the motion and its potential implications.

If the motion is sent to the Heritage Committee, it is virtually guaranteed the full attention of the group’s chairwoman. Liberal MP Hedy Fry is firmly entrenched on the left-wing of the party and is notorious for comments she made following the 9-11 terrorist attacks that seemed to blame the U.S. for the atrocity.

    Here is a definition: Hate = anything that gets in the way of the globalist’s desire to implement global neo-serfdom.

    Iqra Khalid’s constituency is Mississauga, a heavily Muslim community. Thomas Mulcair’s district is comprised of a steadily increasing number of Muslims of which certain areas are almost 100% Muslim. Scary indeed that it takes only a few of these communities to persecute the majority of the population.

    To be honest, haven’t we always known Canadians are stupid?

    Saying a mean word by a X-rain=Hate crime.

    Blowing up innocent people by an Islamic=Peaceful discourse.

    This is playing right into the hands of the Muslim community and this is how they eventually take over. Silence the critics by yelling islamophobia every time they are criticized. Look at what Europe is becoming. We’re going to need to strengthen our northern border.

    Not nice. we have a lot of deplorables here too that don’t want this crazy stuff.. Unfortunately too many wanted change just like voting in Obama in the US, they put in a clone of him here. Next time around lets hope he is gone and we can make Canada great again.

  • Common Sense

    You are right, our lunatic liberals are just as stupid. We had voted a Muslim community organizer. But was Trudeau really just a drama teacher? Has he not read the 18 page document found that describes how they plan to take us over?

  • Common Sense

    And that is exactly one of the outlined strategies in the 18 page document found:

    It is so important that people know this truth. Please share this information.

    We have pockets of extreme Libtard stupidity in our major cities. Many of us though, are just like you, disgusted with what our “progressive” governments have done. We did go full retard electing Trudeau though, I think a big wake up call is coming, he can’t hide the idiot inside. I hope you good folks will have our backs when we throw these clowns out next election. Until then I’m just hoping my Tavor stays non restricted. Cheers
