Recently, there was a viral media story about an immigrant Muslim woman who appeared in court in the province of Quebec. Her teen-aged son had been pulled over by the police with a suspended licence. In a case like that, the car is impounded for 30 days. If someone can show reason to need the car back before that, they have to appeal to the court.
Already, at that point in the story, I was having trouble with it. Despite the public wanting safer roads by having dangerous drivers taken off them, do you know how hard it is to suspend this teen’s licence??! As a minor, and a Good Muslim, to whom alcohol is forbidden, was he caught drunk driving? Has he been convicted of multiple traffic offences, like speeding, racing, leaving the scene of an accident?
On her side, has she been blithely unaware of multiple traffic offences, at least one court case, and the suspension of his licence? If she was aware of his suspension, did she uncaringly allow him to illegally use the car?
When she appeared before the judge, a lovely lady judge, she did so with her Muslim tea-towel wrapped around her head. The female judge told her that she would have to remove her head covering, as a mark of respect for both the judge, and the court. Things like scarves and sunglasses were not allowed, and must be removed, or her case would not be heard.
She chose to leave the court without recovering her car. Instead of hiring a lawyer, she chose to arrange a pity party news conference. Instead of claiming religious discrimination, she told enthralled TV and print reporters that she had worn her dish rag when she became a Canadian citizen, and now the judge had made her feel like she was not a true Canadian citizen. Wah, wah, wah! 😦
The judge had already told her that scarves and sunglasses were not allowed. Canadian-type rednecks, with tattoos and 2-digit IQs, are told to remove their ball caps. These rules apply to everyone. The closest she came to playing the religion card was to claim that Jewish men were not forced to remove their yarmulkes.
For pious Jewish men, the wearing of the yarmulke is a decreed portion of their religious observance. Her wearing of some window curtain is merely personal preference, not a dogmatic Muslim tenet. I now wear my glasses at all times, yet when I go to have my passport photo taken, I am told to remove them for better identification.
She whined about not feeling like a “real Canadian”, yet every member of every level of ‘Canadian’ police, every ‘Canadian’ EMT tech, every ‘Canadian’ firefighter, and every member of ‘Canadian’ Armed Forces, male and FEMALE, remove their head covering in court. That’s what “real Canadians” do, they show respect, and they obey the law.
Militant Islamism is more dangerous, but this type of Muslimism is more insidious. Many Muslims come to North America with the honest hope for a better way of life. Far too many though, come here saying they want a change, but the only change they want is to our way of life. They play the long game. They plow their twisted view of the Koran, and sow our welcoming multiculturalism, so that they can eventually reap the crop of the universal Caliphate.
This woman is no more a ‘real Canadian’ than the two, fortunately inept, terrorists who were going to dump a Niagara train and bridge into the gorge. She’s just more subtle and long-range manipulative about it. Sadly, there are too many politicians loaded with gullibility and White Man’s Guilt, who will feel sorry for her.
An Englishman arrives at his mate’s flat, to find him desperately packing. “Where are you goin’, an’ why??” “Well, it’s about homosexuals!” “What about ‘em?’ “Two hundred years ago, if you were gay, you were hanged, drawn and quartered. A hundred and fifty years ago, you were flogged and sent to a penal colony. A hundred years ago, you went to prison for life. Fifty years ago, it changed to ‘live and let live’. A few years ago, that became ‘Don’t ask – don’t tell. I’m gettin’ to Hell out, before it becomes mandatory!”
Only three days after her little video went viral, she had crowd-sourced $20,000 to pay for a lawyer to represent her, to thumb her nose at Canadian traditions and the legal system. I don’t know if I’ll be more disappointed to find that the bulk of the funds came from apologetic Christians, or hard-core Muslims, financing the firm insertion of the thin edge of the wedge. Sharia law, here we come!
