Canada: Federally Funded Guide Tells Muslims How to Vote
Editor’s Note: I’ll bet if we did some digging, we’d find that American tax dollars are being used in a similar fashion.
Welcome to Justin Trudeau’s Canada. The guide graded candidates on whether they support issues such as the anti-Semitic BDS (Boycott the Jews) Movement, immigration for refugees, and the anti-free speech M-103 (Islamophobia) motion. Canada is becoming more unrecognizable by the day.
CANADA: FEDERALLY FUNDED GUIDE TELLS MUSLIMS HOW TO VOTE
Toronto Sun, October 25, 2019:
A federally funded Canadian Muslim Voting Guide — released three days before the Oct. 21 election — gives Conservative leader Andrew Scheer a series of failing grades for apparently associating with far-right, Islamophobic figures, opposing the M-103 motion and the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, and for proposing immigration policies that “compromise asylum seekers.”
THE HIGHLY PARTISAN, ANTI-ZIONIST GUIDE — PRODUCED BY THE CANADIAN ISLAMOPHOBIA INDUSTRY RESEARCH PROJECT OUT OF WILFRID LAURIER UNIVERSITY — CONTENDS THAT NEWLY RE-ELECTED PRIME MINISTER JUSTIN TRUDEAU HAS BEEN THE “TARGET OF ISLAMOPHOBIC HATE CAMPAIGNS” AND GIVES HIM A FREE PASS FOR HIS BLACK FACE ANTICS BECAUSE OF HIS PUBLIC STANCE AGAINST ISLAMOPHOBIA.
The 34-page guide was put together by Jasmin Zine, a professor of sociology and Muslim studies, as well as graduate students Fatima Chakroun and Shifa Abbas.
The guide’s cover states quite clearly that it was supported by a grant from Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. According to the SSHRC website, Zine, in conjunction with National Council of Canadian Muslims, got a $24,923 Partnership Engage grant in September of last year to map the Canadian Islamophobia Industry.
According to her own biography she has developed “award winning curriculum materials that address Islamophobia and anti-Muslim racism” and has published numerous journal articles on Islamic feminism.
