Join us for the Second Annual “Muslims of Tomorrow” Conference
Every year or so I learn about something happening in Canada where my first reaction is one of disbelief, as in "this can't really be happening". Like the first time I saw an ad for the CBC's Little Mosque on the Prairies. Thought it was a joke or a hacker attack on the CBC's website. It wasn't. It was the CBC's way of countering the real threat of ongoing Islamic terrorism with fictional leftist feel-good stereotypes.
Tonite, another one.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police - the RCMP - are hosting a “Muslims of Tomorrow” conference. Free registration and even a free lunch. At taxpayer's expense.
Try substituting any other religious group and see how it sounds. Can you imagine the police, an armed agency of the state, hosting a Catholics of Tomorrow Conference? Jews of Tomorrow Conference? Mennonites of Tomorrow Conference?
Why focus on Muslims?
You might think it's because some wacky young Muslims recently tried to implement a plan that included hacking off our Prime Minister's head and the RCMP want to lay down the law.
And you would be wrong.
It's because some Muslims feel that as a result of some er, recent unfortunate events, they're been getting a bad rap in the Canadian media.
Have we gone bonkers?
There was a time when the role of law enforcement was to uphold the law.
Looks like, when it comes to dealing with the integration (or, better, non-integration) of Muslims into society, Canadian law enforcement is going the way of the UK.
And that's not good.
And that's the way the definitely-not-halal-Ball bounces.
