At the center of the controversy were comments made by Member of Parliament Maxime Bernier, who tweeted:
“Canada under extreme Liberal multiculturalism: While a statue of our country’s founder is being removed in one city, a park was recently named after Pakistan’s founder in another, in the presence of M103 Liberal MP sponsor……Pakistan independence from India led to 1M deaths.”
Concern was expressed on the comment section of that post, that for politicians to raise hot-button topics like “diversity” can result in political suicide. On the contrary; there are far too many citizens who are more concerned about national suicide, such as we see happening in many countries throughout Europe. Issues such as “diversity,” “multiculturalism,” and immigration are paramount issues on everyone’s mind. Canada has been experiencing an Islamic supremacist entryist problem in government; its Prime Minister has put out a welcome mat for Islamic State jihadis; and the Quebec border is a free-for-all for literally anyone who arrives. The Liberal government has instituted an action plan to crack down on those whom it deems to be “Islamophobic.” At every turn, Canada’s heritage and its well-being are being undermined, while its citizens and rightly concerned politicians are being told to be silent and refrain from all dissent, query and dialogue.
Every topic of importance requires open discussion. If people are offended by open dialogue, it is all the more needed. No one group is above another in democratic societies. The article below provides a bird’s-eye view of the divisions in Canada, particularly among the opposition Conservatives. These divisions are certainly not the result of Maxime Bernier’s comments; they are the result of allowing and enabling a cancerous brand of multiculturalism to spread and subvert Canada’s heritage. Open discussions are needed in the public forum, and a leader must be equipped to manage them.
Liberal Member of Parliament Arif Virani demanded that Bernier leave the Conservative Party. He tweeted out:
My letter to Andrew Scheer: Maxime Bernier has to go
Virani came to Canada as a Ugandan refugee and has blamed the Conservatives for being intolerant and taking a “hardline” approach to the niqab, yet in many African countries the niqab has been banned for security reasons. Chad banned the full-face veil following two jihad suicide bomb attacks by Boko Haram that killed over 20 people, according to a BBC report. The veil was used as a “camouflage.” Chad security forces announced that it would “burn all full-face veils sold in markets.” There are other cases:
African nations Gabon, Congo, and parts of Cameroon also banned the burqa in the same year, also for security reasons, and in 2017, North African nation of Morocco banned the production and manufacture of the clothing over fears of terrorism, and to crack down on Islamic extremism.
Virani has also stated:
“I think it’s both a responsibility but also a duty, that as Islamic members of Parliament now we really need to be in the vanguard of carrying forward a mantle that demonstrates to all Canadians, not just to our constituents in our individual ridings, about what our religion is about and what Canadian people are really about.”
What exactly is Islamic jurisprudence about, Mr. Virani?
It is not Bernier who is causing divisions; it is Islamic supremacist influences in the Liberal government, and those who are oppressed by those influences, who are terrified of being beaten down by charges of “racism” and “Islamophobia.” Anti-islamophobia motion M-103 is working rather well in Canada, as Canada’s unmanaged multiculturalist policies causes its heritage to fade into the background. Meanwhile, Trudeau’s Liberals and his Islamic supremacist cohorts are cheering.
“Canadian Conservative Leader Caves to Trudeau’s ‘Cult of Diversity,’” David Krayden, Daily Caller, August 16, 2018:
Conservative Party of Canada leader Andrew Scheer publicly upbraided one of his caucus members for criticizing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s “cult of diversity.”
After equivocating for days over a series of tweets issued by Quebec Member of Parliament Maxime Bernier that roundly criticized Trudeau’s “extreme multiculturalism,” on Wednesday night, Scheer issued a statement accusing his colleague of using “identity politics” that are divisive.
After pointing out that Bernier “holds no official role in caucus and does not speak for the Conservative Party of Canada on any issue,” Scheer writes that “… I disagree with politicians on the left and the right when they use identity politics to divide Canadians … I will not engage in this type of politics.”
He continues, “Conservatives celebrate Canada’s diversity and a Conservative government will continue to welcome those from all over the world who choose to come here because of the society we have built.”
But Bernier, who has been defended by other Conservative MPs and some Canadian journalists, apparently ignored the rebuke from his leader. He continued to deride the Liberal Party’s blanket support of diversity without even defining what the concept means. He asked why a park in Canada was recently dedicated to the founder of Pakistan….
