“I think that’s great. I think we accomplished what we were here to do, to ensure that we don’t have [Ann Coulter's] discriminatory rhetoric on our campus”Sameena Topan, conflict studies and human rights major at the University of Ottawa.

Obviously, the Canadian students felt the need to “purify” their campus, as a center of progressive thought. The students’ “action” was a response to conservative “smears” against statist leaders as well as an affirmation of progressive values.

What can we expect to see next from Canada’s neo-totalitarians—perhaps a torchlight parade followed by a literary purge or Säuberung (cleansing) by fire of all books that challenge or contradict progressive ideas?

BTW, Coulter’s tour was organized by the International Free Press Society—how ironic!

Coulter speech cancelled over fears of violence

By CTV.ca News Staff

The University of Ottawa cancelled a speech by U.S. firebrand conservative Ann Coulter late Tuesday, just moments before its scheduled start, because organizers feared protesters would turn violent.

As people were still making their way into the venue, the building had to be evacuated when a fire alarm was triggered.

The incident followed a Monday night lecture at the University of Western Ontario, where Coulter told a Muslim student to “take a camel” as an alternative to flying.

Coulter made the comment as she responded to a question from student Fatima Al-Dhaher, who asked about previous comments in which Coulter said Muslims shouldn’t be allowed on airplanes and should take “flying carpets” instead. Al-Dhaher noted she did not own a flying carpet and asked what she should take as an alternative transportation.

Coulter did not deny making the flying carpet comment and replied to the university student, “What mode of transportation? Take a camel,” to jeers and cheers. It was a decidedly pro-Coulter audience. One man, who identified himself as a U.S. citizen, described U.S. President Barack Obama as a “Marxist.”

Some students, including Al-Dhaher, walked out after the camel comment.

Coulter said Tuesday that her comment about taking flying carpets was a joke that was made during an interview with The Guardian newspaper about racial profiling, and had been taken out of context.

“I can say it a lot quicker with a joke, and by the way, they wouldn’t be bringing me in here for a speech if I never told a joke, if I never used satire,” Coulter told CTV’s Power Play Tuesday. “It’s not so much a joke, it’s satire because there’s a political point behind my saying that they can take flying carpets.”

Coulter did not elaborate on what her political point actually was.

She is well-known for her vehement views against Muslims. In a post-September 11 column, she wrote that the U.S. should invade Muslim countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity.

Al-Dhaher said she attended the lecture “with an open mind” and had not planned to ask a question. However, when Coulter began making remarks about homosexuals, African-Americans and Muslims, she felt the need to speak up, she said.

“I just thought that it was despicable and I thought that I should speak up against it,” Al-Dhaher told CTV News Channel Tuesday afternoon. “So, I wrote on my phone because I was afraid I’d get nervous up there and forget my question.”

Al-Dhaher said Coulter is entitled to her opinions but said the university could have chosen a right-wing speaker who is less inflammatory.

“I think that if the intention of the university is to bring two different speakers from two different political spectrums, I think that there are better choices from that camp that they could have chosen rather than Ann Coulter, because she is a bit vocal and she is a bit outrageous in some of the things that she says.”

Coulter spoke in front of a packed audience of about 800 at the university.

Coulter to file human rights complaint

The cancellation of Coulter’s lecture at the University of Ottawa came after she received an email about the limits of free speech in Canada from the school’s provost.

The private email, which was leaked to conservative news organizations, noted that Canada’s Charter of Rights meant that “promoting hatred against any identifiable group would not only be considered inappropriate, but could in fact lead to criminal charges.”

Francois Houle, vice-president academic and University of Ottawa provost, invited Coulter to educate herself on Canadian free speech laws.

“We, of course, are always delighted to welcome speakers on our campus and hope that they will contribute positively to the meaningful exchange of ideas that is the hallmark of a great university campus,” wrote Houle.

The letter only added fuel to the fire of Coulter’s speaking tour, which is titled, “Political Correctness, Media Bias and Freedom of Speech.”

Coulter told Power Play that because she is from an identifiable group (“I’m a Christian, I’m a conservative, I’m a female”), she is the victim of a hate crime and will file a complaint with Canada’s Human Rights Commission.

Wrong approach by U of Ottawa: MPs

Coulter, who often comments on Fox News, once said Canada is “lucky we allow them to exist on the same continent” after the Canadian government did not join the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.

Her tour was organized by International Free Press Society, a group whose website sets up Islam as the preeminent threat to democracy in the Western world.

“This jihad, like all jihads before it, will continue until a sharia-based caliphate rules the world, or until it is defeated,” the society’s policy statement says.

The group also sells one of the infamous Danish Mohammad cartoons, signed by cartoonist Kurt Westergaard, for $250. They are currently sold out.

Among the group’s board of advisers are Canadian conservative bloggers Ezra Levant and Kathy Shaidle, author Mark Steyn and far-right Dutch political leader Geert Wilders.

Coulter reportedly commands a $10,000 speaking fee. Her fee is being covered in part by the Claire Boothe Luce Policy Institute, an American group that calls itself the “home of conservative women leaders.”

Some critics say trying to quiet Coulter is the wrong approach to discrediting her views.

“In terms of putting limits on what she … should say or shouldn’t say, I’m not sure that helps,” New Democrat MP Paul Dewar, told The Canadian Press. “It might add fuel to the fire that she will be probably starting tomorrow.”

Liberal MP Scott Brison made a similar comment.

“If you don’t agree with what she has to say, then ignore her,” he said.

Coulter’s Canadian tour wraps up at the University of Calgary on Thursday.

Rupert Murdoch’s unfaithfulness to America

By MrArbitrage

Conservative author Diane West just wrote an important column in which she points out some disturbing trends regarding the media mollycoddling of Islamic tyrants.  The example she highlighted was their treatment of Geert Wilders. If you are not familiar with Mr. Wilders, it’s not surprising given the obvious pro-Islam bias our media has demonstrated.  Wilders is leader of the Freedom Party in the Netherlands and has been sounding the alarms against the Islamization of Europe.

Wilders became internationally known for his controversial film called Fitna – roughly translated as “strife” in Arabic – which links the Quran to terrorism.  No television company would broadcast the film and Dutch politicians tried to ban it.  The British government had at one point banned Wilder from the UK on the grounds that he posed a threat to public security.  In the liberal European media you will often hear of Wilder referred to as a “fascist”, which is incredible if you consider that Muslim leaders practically worship Adolph Hitler, the man with whom Muslims were aligned during WW II.  It really demonstrates the contempt the left has for historical reality.  Unfortunately, as Diane West’s column highlights, some who we often hold in high esteem – share in this contempt for history as far as Islam is concerned.

West highlighted the fact that multiple Fox News pundits including Glenn Beck and Charles Krauthammer are now branding Dutch Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders as “beyond the political pale”.  (Following this column is a link to Geerts’ official website where he addresses Fox and Krauthammer directly.)

What makes Fox’s sudden affection for Islam suspicious is – as Ms. West accurately put it -  “Rupert Murdoch, for reasons unknown, sold what is now a seven percent stake of Fox’s parent company News Corp. to a scion of the sharia-dictatorship of Saudi Arabia, Prince Alwaleed bin Talal.”  West contended that “for the Fox commentators, supposedly punditry’s bulwark of Western values, to bring it up just to slap it down — and without factual care (to say the least) — was disappointing but also irresponsible.”

You cannot count on -anyone- these days.  The goal of Islam elucidated by Muhammad, the Quran and the Hadith is to conquer the world.

Islam’s plan for western civilization is very clear.  If you are a Christian or some other type of “infidel”, you will basically have two choices:

Males – convert to Islam or you will be executed.

Women & Children – Convert to Islam or you will be mutilated and literally enslaved.

Jews – must be murdered regardless.  According to Islam and Muhammad, all Jews must be eradicated from the face of the Earth.  (Hitler is still a hero in Islamic nations and Mein Kampf is still a best seller there eighty six years after being written.)

Islam is only “peace” for Muslims who know very little about their religion and do not follow it with fervor (just as there are many who call themselves Christians by birth or tradition but have no idea what makes one a Christian).  That may be the majority of Muslims (if we are fortunate) but true Islam can be nothing less than savagery and if there should be a “great awakening” among those who claim the title of Muslim, all hell will be unleashed all over western civilization.

Many Christians do not regularly participate in “mission’s trips” like those taking place in Haiti and throughout the world every day; but “fundamentalist Christians” have been faithfully orchestrating them for over 2,000 years.  What about Muslims?  Where’s the fruit of their religion?  If you think you haven’t seen a Muslim missionary, you haven’t looked closely enough.  The Muslim missionary can be seen in Sudan, Indonesia, Nigeria and other parts of the world, following the example of its founder Muhammad, murdering, plundering and trading slaves.  The most well know Muslim mission’s trip in the US took place on September 11th, 2001.  That was -NOT- as the cretins of the west claim is “radical Islam”.  That was simply OBEDIENT and authentic Islam.  Those who deny this fact taught and ordered by Islam and its “holy” books are in apostasy.   Sure there are many who have resisted and are resisting as we are seeing in Iran.  And those people are being murdered by their Islamic government for being “secular”.  The people in Iran who want their freedom are heretics in the mind of the sick, twisted Islamic government.  That is what they want to bring here to America and that is what they will succeed in exporting to America if we do not rid ourselves of the traitorous appeasers and profiteers who are selling out our country to this evil religion.

Those who take offense to these assertions are simply deluded by the propaganda of people like Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, George Soros, Rupert Murdoch and many others.  They dismiss the truth with erroneous remarks like “there are extremists in every religion; you have whack job Christians that go out and kill people (like abortion Doctors)…” and the ever popular question “what about the crusades?”  Those are comparisons often made by intelligent people who have some knowledge of history but are exceedingly ignorant of both Christianity and Islam.  They are making a statement based upon what they –want- to be the case because it is simplistic.

The reality is that throughout history there have been rulers in high places and Popes who –claimed- to be Christians – who were not.  Anyone with knowledge of the Protestant Reformation knows that these corrupt leaders wouldn’t allow the Bible to be translated into the language that the people could read or understand –BECAUSE- what they were doing in the name of Christ was absolute corruption and in total contradiction to the teaching and works of Jesus Christ.  These imposters were not at all Christians and they brutally murdered many reformers who dared to translate the words of Jesus Christ into the language of the people because they knew that once the people could learn the true word of God – their racket was over – and the truth would set the people free.

This simple reality has been deliberately convoluted.  Some are deceiving for financial gain and some are the same faction that gets aroused by sucking up to those who are determined to destroy America.   It is really quite simple to summarize.  Simply look at the life and teachings of Jesus compared to the life and teachings of Muhammad.  Those who believe in Jesus and follow his commands will love their neighbor as themselves and do unto others as they would have others do unto them.  The commission that Jesus gave his disciples (and us) is to “go into all the world and make disciples of all men.”  That is the catalyst which prompts real Christians to traverse the world feeding the poor, healing the sick, building hospitals, orphanages, drilling wells, etc.  Jesus said whatever you do unto the LEAST of THESE, you have done unto ME.  That-is the example that Christ set and what he instructed his followers-Christians- to do.  Again, this is much different than Jihad, which is the work of the Muslim “missionary”.  Scour the Earth for a demonstration of their good deeds and all you will find is what we have seen in New York City, Yemen, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, Nairobi, Kenya and countless ongoing atrocities to boot.

The following excerpt is from a boy who lived on a beautiful family farm in southern Sudan until he was visited by some muslim missionaries:

“Men with guns were entering the town. Men on horses, shooting with their rifles, slashing people with their swords, chopping off heads with a single swipe. Someone grabbed me from behind – a murahaliin, yelling and waving his gun. He pushed me back together with other boys and girls. Everyone was crying and screaming for their parents. There were no Dinka men standing, everywhere I turn, I saw blood running from them like water in rivers.”

We are begging to be destroyed.  I hope everyone is feeling good about themselves in the process.  That’s what this is all about, “look at me, I’m such a humanitarian because I pacify terrorists, I’m such a diplomat…” They gave Yasser Arafat a friggin Nobel Peace Prize!

In regard to Diane West’s column, I cannot say I’m surprised by Murdoch’s selling us out.  Just because I prefer Fox News over the others, I have no delusions about this guy.  It is clear Murdoch has put his back pocket ahead of US national security and national morality.  Murdoch through the Fox Network is the biggest purveyor of filth on television.  His company leads the pack on pushing the limits of acceptability and vilifying the faith upon which this nation was founded.  He may have trouble with exposing the truth of Islam but Murdoch definitely has no problem PROFITEERING off of the mockery of Jesus Christ.  Here are a couple samples of his toxic assault on our nation.  It is important that you view this as a responsible American because you SHOULD be offended that this is even on the airwaves. 

Family Guy – Dinner with Jesus

Family Guy – It’s Jesus Christ!

I could not embed the link to the worst of them, but you can see it here at http://www.afa.net/Detail.aspx?id=2147483774.  The March 8, 2009. “Family Guy – Family Gay” episode pushed the homosexual agenda and denigrated Christ again. At a “straight” meeting, the speaker talks to gays about Jesus and tells them, “Jesus Christ, who hates many people, but none more than homosexuals.” BTW, PepsiCo helped sponsor the program.

Notice how Murdoch profits by putting such unthinkable filth on the airwaves.  Can you imagine what would happen if the left mocked Muhammad in this way?  Can you imagine if the “Curb Your Enthusiasm” episode where Larry David urinated on a painting of Jesus’ face had instead urinated on a painting depicting the face of Muhammad?  It wouldn’t HAPPEN!  (Curb you enthusiasm scene below) 

Curb Your Enthusiasm: Pissing on Jesus

The media, at our peril, venerate the terrorist Muhammad – and to be honest, that word is a euphemism for the so-called “prophet”.  As I look at the western media dismissing a prescient man like Wilders, it reminds me of the years of disdain that Sir Winston Churchill endured from Parliament and the media as he vociferously warned them of the evils of Adolf Hitler.

The ignorance toward the murderous intent of Islam upon the entire globe is absolutely surreal.  Couple that with the extreme hostility those same appeasers of Islam have toward Christ and it will strengthen the faith of anyone who knows the scriptures because of the accuracy of the promises, one of which is that good will be looked upon as evil and evil as good.

When I say it is surreal it is because the global treachery is all so obvious and undeniable to anyone who simply reads Islamic history and examines the Quran and the Hadith.  To anyone with even a modicum of intellectual capability, it would seem IMPOSSIBLE for what we see happening – to actually be happening!  But it IS!  It is like Invasion of the BRAIN Snatchers.

I remember reading the prophecies in Revelation as a child and having a difficult time picturing the following specific verse being fulfilled:

“And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.” Revelation 20:4.

The time of my childhood was a time before Islam was a thought on most of our American minds.  Now as I read that passage, it makes me think it is entirely plausible that Islam does conquer the world.  It was too difficult to picture beheadings at some point being received as a widespread form of capital punishment.  In the context of today’s reality, it is much easier to see because, in the middle-east, beheadings are a normal part of life.  In Saudi-Arabia beheading is the punishment for converting from Islam to Christianity.  This is the type of law that they will bring to the entire world with the help of the high profile traitors like those previously enumerated as well as those eternally credulous and apathetic westerners who live for the plaudits that come with political correctness and appeasing those who want you dead.

I’ll never be able to erase from my mind the live broadcast by the Hollywood A-list after the Muslim mission’s trip of September 11th.  A day or two later while the smoke and fire of the twin towers were still smoldering, Actor Will Smith on a national telethon, stood before the camera with a frail Muhammad Ali by his side and praised Islam for being such a “religion of peace.”

What has Islam or ANY Muslim in the world ever done to deserve such laudations?  Where were these Hollywood degenerates when Mother Theresa died?  You barely heard a mention of her deeds from the media or any of these shallow narcissists because ironically, Princess Diana died on the same day and they were all too busy worshipping the former princess for her lifelong self-sacrifices.

To Murdoch, the Hollywood miscreants and all of those in government who wish to sell out the United States for a few billion:

If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of political correctness better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen. – Samuel Adams (adapted for 21st Century by MrArbitrage)
