Canada: M-103 talk turns to prosecution, censorship (ie, enforcing sharia)

Source: M-103 talk turns to prosecution, censorship | Furey | Columnists | Opinion | Tor

After the first M-103 hearing on Monday, I wrote that we were perhaps facing a less adversarial process than expected. Liberal MP Iqra Khalid was conciliatory as the initial witness, emphasizing that her motion to tackle discrimination was equally about all religions and races. She hardly mentioned the ill-defined phrase Islamophobia.

How quickly things change. Wednesday’s hearing confirmed some of Canadians’ worst suspicions about the process and its effects on free speech.

Witness Michel Juneau-Katsuya was an officer in both the RCMP and CSIS. He’s been in private security for a number of years and a regular media voice offering commentary on national security and terror.

From what I know of him, he’s never said anything particularly controversial. Yet on Wednesday, he offered a number of eerie observations about using the state to deal with voices that “go too far.”

Juneau-Katsuya used his time to speak – in French, so all of my quotes are the interpreter’s words – about the threat of the “alt-right” in Quebec, never specifying how he was using this term.

This in itself is no big deal and Quebec certainly seems to have a problem with radicalism. But then he went on to chastise what they call “trash radio” in Quebec, recommending they should perhaps have their licences pulled for engaging in Islamophobia.

What exactly are they saying on Francophone radio? Are they calling for violence? Issuing death threats?

In the aftermath of the Quebec City mosque shootings, there were similar calls to deal with these stations. A CBC story featured much hand-wringing over the stations, but could only offer this evidence: “Radio poubelle (trash radio) stations often air segments voicing concerns about Muslim immigration and the threat of Islamic terrorism.”

Is that it? Maybe they’re rude and excessive. But how is that a crime that warrants the government shutting them down?

Juneau-Katsuya then lamented that there was “too much shyness and political correctness when it comes to the prosecuting process, letting it go under the blanket of free speech and letting things go too far.” We should be prosecuting people more, he said.

He was then asked by Liberal MP Arif Virani if Rebel Media “amplifies the voices of the extreme right?” He answered yes.

Virani then read out a tweet that wrongly said the Quebec City shooter had an unspecified Muslim accomplice.

Juneau-Katsuya said it should be “denounced and if possible prosecuted, because here, this is defamation.”

The tweet, Virani then revealed, was in fact made by my colleague Tarek Fatah – who was also testifying that day.

What should we make of all this? No one disputes people should be charged for threats, harassment and, of course, assault. That wasn’t what was being discussed though.

No, this was a former federal police officer basically toying with the censoring of the media and the prosecuting of individuals when “things go too far.”

Rather bizarrely, Virani told Fatah that same day that he disagreed with his opening remarks but believed in his right to say them. So why then did he lay a trap that ended in a witness recommending Fatah be prosecuted for an erroneous tweet?

My colleagues in the media tried to say M-103 was a toothless motion. Yet here we are, having a committee hearing. Then they said it would never lead to suppression of speech. Yet look what just happened.

This is a dangerous game we’re playing. Everyone’s free to disagree with Quebec talk radio, Ezra Levant and Tarek Fatah until the cows come home. But prosecution?!

If these observations get turned into recommendations in the committee report, we have a huge problem on our hands.

This is precisely how sharia creeps.

First, sharia-defending and espousing Muslims find their way into political office.

They immediately begin discussions on ways to implement sharia.  Muslim Lawmaker Pushes Sharia Blasphemy Law to Criminalize “Islamophobia”.

Muslims get sharia resolutions passed.  Sharia Creeps in Canada as House of Commons Passes Islamic Blasphemy Motion.

Then? Well, they are already enforcing sharia in Canada. Ontario Female Premier Forced To Sit In Corner While Visiting Mosque. Or Canada: City denies permit for anti-sharia rally; Parade bans float protesting sharia law.

But soon, thanks to M-103, it will be the law of the land.

The very same process is playing out in the United States thanks to Marco Rubio Helps Muslims Pass Senate Resolution to Criminalize Free Speech.

As George Washington long-ago warned:

  1. Wake up America !!!!!!! and Canada too!
    “Farewell to England”
    This is an interesting “Farewell to England” list of Islamic accomplishments in that country that I thought might give you a better understanding of the insidiousness of Hijrah; that’s the takeover of a nation without going to war. Don’t think for a moment that America is not a target or that there are no American cities where Islamic and Sharia victories and takeovers have already occurred. It’s time for border control, or start planning for a very big goodbye America party
    Here’s what has already happened to England within a few years of opening their borders without entry control:
    How the British have passively succumbed to the Muslim invasion:
    Mayor of London .. MUSLIM
    Mayor of Birmingham .. MUSLIM
    Mayor of Leeds … MUSLIM
    Mayor of Blackburn … MUSLIM
    Mayor of Sheffield … MUSLim
    Mayor of Oxford .. MUSLIM
    Mayor of Luton …. MUSLIM
    Mayor of Oldham … MUSLIM
    Mayor of Rochdale … MUSLIM
    All the following achieved by just 4 million Muslims out of the 66 million population:
    Over 3,000 Muslim Mosque
    Over 130 Muslim Sharia Courts
    Over 50 Muslim Sharia Councils
    Muslims Only No-Go Areas Across The UK
    Muslim Women.. 78% don’t work and are on FREE benefits/housing
    Muslim Men… 63% don’t work and are on FREE benefits/housing
    Muslim Families… 6-8 children planning to go on FREE benefits/housing and now all UKschools are ONLY serving HALAL MEAT!

  2. Take a lesson from the ROACH….. It only takes ONE ROACH to infest a WHOLE CONTINENT!!! Roaches (just like MUZZRATS preaching SHARIA) multiply singlehandedly–there are NO male and female roaches–THEY ALL REPRODUCE INDEPENDENTLY!!! If you see ONE ROACH and DON’T KILL IT OR CONTAIN IT, you will end up burning the house down in order to get rid of them!!!!! NO JOKE!!!!!

  3. Canadians (Canadiens) are complete and utter morons. Is there any more worthless group of emasculated panty-wastes on Earth? Even Europeans aren’t to pathetic.

  4. “Islamophobia” “This loathsome term is nothing more than a thought-terminating cliché conceived in the bowels of Muslim think tanks for the purpose of beating down critics.” Abdur-Rahman Muhammad, former Muslim Brotherhood adherent

    These committee hearings are reminiscent of what the German Weimar Republic did in the 1920s. They introduced what they referred to as a series of anti-hate laws only to have those same laws turned around and used against them by Hitler’s Nazis in the 1930s.

    The sole purpose of any forthcoming legislation form this committee will be to institute “Islamic blasphemy laws”. Western democracies all around the world are under assault. Europe has already fallen. Most EU members have instituted what are in effect “Islamic blasphemy laws”. People are charged, convicted, fined and even face prison. No one is safe.

    What’s worse is that Canada’s politicians are working very hard to be the next Islamic compliant state. Our entire political class is goose stepping us into what will be the end of freedom of speech. If there is anyone out there who thinks that Islamophobia legislation will not be used to silence legitimate criticism of Islam then they are living in an alternate reality.

    What I and others want to know is where is the outrage at Canada’s political class for throwing our most fundamental of all freedoms under the bus?

  5. It’s quite obvious that this most merciful , this most benevolent, this most gracious of politico-religious tradition simply cannot ‘earn’ our absolute respect on its own merits , therefore it demands state enforced veneration , the state endorsed totalitarian submission to a creed is the norm in most Islamic states where sharia’s blasphemy tenets  forbids, with a vengeance, any criticism of the state ideology. You criticize the state-ideology at your peril , the wrath, indignation and punishment will be swift. Self-reflective critical thought , introspection of ones religious beliefs  has no legacy in theocratic states .  
    It’s surreal that the truncheons of blasphemy would dictate conversations in 21st century Canada ~!?! Will this become an other price of Islamization in western culture  .
    M-103 , state enforced speech code, is poised to replace our fundamental rights to free speech , introducing state censorship and state persecution for speaking outside  state condoned speech .

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
