Canada passes Anti-Free speech motion M103 to protect Islam from criticism

It is with a heavy heart that I report that Canada has passed motion M103 which will restrict free speech and will morph very quickly into a Sharia enforcement tool. The thought police now have a motion to use to silence any Canadian who criticises Islam as Islamophobia is now officially condemned. No clear definition of what Islamophobia actually is has been provided. How can this motion be fairly applied when no definition of Islamophobia has been provided? The lack of a definition makes it open season on any critic of the ideology of Islam. It is an incredibly totalitarian motion and will result eventually in Canadians being sent to jail for criticising Islam. It will also have a chilling effect so people will be too scared to say anything related to Muslims or Islam.

The Canadian House of Commons has passed motion M103 which singles out the criticism of Islam as a form of “Islamophobia”. Critics condemn it as an attack on free speech.
Motion M103 was tabled by Iqra Khalid, a Muslim member of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party. It states the government must “condemn Islamophobia and all forms of systemic racism and religious discrimination”, was taken to vote on Thursday evening where a total of 201 MPs voted for it and only 91 voted against, Canadian broadcaster Global News reports.

The text of the motion does not clarify what constitutes “Islamophobia” and has led many to speculate what that may mean in the future, with some critics fearing it could lead to Shariah law courts. This concern has led to the circulation of an anti-Shariah petition on the Parliament of Canada website, which has so far been signed by over 24,000 people.

Even in London where people have just been slaughtered by a homegrown Jihadist, critics of the terror attack are being accused of hate speech. Instead of focussing on the ideology that all the terrorism has in common the media and the liberals are attacking the critics. The message in Canada and the UK is that the citizens must stop complaining about the destruction that Islam brings into their societies as it is hateful and Islamophobic to do so.

Ms. Khalid, who was born in Pakistan and moved to the UK and then to Canada, said the definition of Islamophobia was: “The irrational hate of Muslims that leads to discrimination.”

I wonder if Ms. Khalid believes that the hate in the Koran directed against Jews, homosexuals, and non-Muslims is a rational hate? There are already laws in place against discrimination so why is she trying to criminalise feelings instead of actions? M103 has nothing to do with actual discrimination and everything to do with policing what people feel and think. This is scary stuff.

…Another part of the bill that has stirred controversy is the passage that asks the government to “recognise the need to quell the increasing public climate of hate and fear”. It is currently unknown what measures the government will take to “quell” “hate and fear” as the motion is not classified as a law and has no effect on current criminal law.

How do you quell fear? How dare she tell Canadian citizens that their fear of Islamic terrorism is irrational and Islamophobic and must be quelled.

Remember this powerful cartoon after the first Islamic terror attack in Canada? I will never forget it.

 

The Conservative Party of Canada are currently holding leadership elections and many of the candidates have come out against M103 including one of the frontrunners, Quebecer Maxime Bernier. Mr. Bernier, a conservative with libertarian free market leanings, said he voted against the bill tweeting: “Free speech is the most fundamental right we have. I am opposed to #m103. Canadians should be treated equally regardless of religion.”

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who during the election campaign championed Muslim women wearing hijabs and full face niqabs, dropped an appeal by the previous government that would not allow women to wear niqabs to Canadian citizenship ceremonies.

Trudeau has also appeared at many mosques, including one where the women weren’t allowed in the main prayer room with the men but were forced to pray in a separate area upstairs.

The self-proclaimed “feminist” Prime Minister said: “Diversity is a source of strength, not just a source of weakness, and as I look at this beautiful room — sisters upstairs — everyone here, (I see) the diversity we have just within this mosque, within the Islamic community, within the Muslim community in Canada.”
