Canada has an “anti-Islamophobia” motion that was passed by Parliament, M-103. But it does not, of course, have any motion against Islamic Jew-hatred, even as it is openly espoused by Muslim politicians such as Tasleem Riaz. While the Trudeau government cracks down on those who speak honestly about the jihad threat, it will no doubt do nothing to denounce, much less prosecute, this Jew-hater. In Canada as in Europe, “hate speech” is something that can only be spoken by foes of jihad terror, not by its proponents. And the left in the U.S. is working hard to bring that same understanding here.
“Meet the Real NDP: Anti-Semitic Candidate Caught Praising Hitler Online,” Ontario PC, May 25, 2018 (thanks to Mark):
Scarborough-Agincourt candidate Tasleem Riaz openly shared pro-Nazi memes while accusing Canadian soldiers of war crimes
Yet another NDP candidate has been exposed for holding extreme and hateful views well outside the Canadian mainstream. Today, Ontario PC candidates Gila Martow and Todd Smith shared details on the NDP’s troubling history of courting anti-Semitic candidates, including a Scarborough-area candidate with a history of sharing pro-Nazi memes.
“The NDP clearly continues to have a problem with allowing the anti-Semites to fester in the dark corners of their party,” said Smith. “We’ve already shone a light on the 9/11 truthers and militant anti-Israel BDS supporters running for the NDP. But today, however, we have the most serious example of anti-Semitism we have seen in Ontario politics for a long, long time.”
Smith and Martow highlighted the documented social media history of Scarborough-Agincourt NDP candidate Tasleem Riaz. Ms. Riaz has previously drawn attention to herself in 2011 through her offensive online commentary accusing the men and women of the Canadian Armed Forces of committing war crimes.
Even more disturbingly, Ms. Riaz would later follow up her activism by posting and sharing a neo-Nazi meme that shared an ‘inspirational’ quote from Adolf Hitler whom she glowingly referred to as ‘the ruler.’
“You don’t post this kind of thing by accident. You don’t openly push Nazi messages on social media by mistake,” said Ms. Martow. “It goes without saying that keeping Ms. Riaz on a ballot in this election is offensive to every Jewish person in Ontario. Just as it is offensive to every race and nationality who were murdered by Ms. Riaz’s apparent hero. Frankly, it’s offensive to all Ontarians with any sense of human decency.”
“When Ontarians pull back the curtain and reveal the real NDP, it is clear that they will not like what they see,” concluded Smith. “Horwath doesn’t get to laugh and shrug this away. If she actually opposes the anti-Semitism festering in her party she will take immediate action against Ms. Riaz today.”
