It was a gruelling experience – stuck for over eight hours with a bunch of mad lefties in a poorly ventilated City Hall committee room and forced to listen to their inane ramblings. Unfortunately, there was no other choice, it was May 24, the day they scheduled the debate over the report to the Toronto City Council about Queers Against Israeli Apartheid (QuAIA).
The “progressives” and the activists of the “queer community” confronted the Jews and other people who didn’t like anti-Semitism.
So many signed up to make their points that Mayor Rob Ford had to cut the time of the presentations from 5 to 4 minutes. The issues to be discussed were whether the expression “Israeli apartheid” should be considered discriminatory and whether the gay parade must be denied funding if they allow QuAIA to take part in this year’s events.
The opponents of that sinister anti-Semitic organization included university professors, lawyers, professionals, a representative of CJC, JDL’s Director Meir Weinstein, the Jewish organization Kulanu and many other people.
The common thread in all of their speeches was the absurdity of the term “Israeli apartheid”. Speaker after speaker emphasized that there is no separation by ethnic or any other principle in Israel. The hospitals treat equally Jews, Arabs, and Christians. All parks and other public places are used equally by everybody, while the Arab countries, which QuAIA supports, discriminate against non-Muslims, and especially Jews.
The Arabs in Israel can vote and even elect their own parties, there are Arab members of the Knesset. They can serve in the army, hold government positions and serve as judges in Israeli courts.
Many facts were presented that while the gay movement accepts QuAIA, it ignores the plight of the homosexuals in the Arab countries, where they are discriminated, mutilated and killed. They have never been given any rights in those countries, while in Israel they are guaranteed full protection under the law. Israel even has two gay parades every year – in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.
QuAIA is anti-Semitic in its nature – although they state they are anti-Zionist, they actively support the BDS movement, whose purpose is to destroy the Israeli economy through boycott and sabotage. The final goal of BDS is bring an economic collapse to the Jewish state, destroying it politically.
One of the presenters even showed pictures from the last year’s parade showing people from QuAIA having swastikas on their shirts.
All of those speakers were very articulate and logical.
Unfortunately, that’s not a statement I can apply to the other side. The lefty menagerie wasn’t completely in touch with reality. Instead of logic, you could see only emotions, divided into two distinct styles of presentation – the sob story and the militant Jew-hatred.
The sob story people chose to ignore QuAIA and concentrated on how heartless it would be to defund the gay parade. The militants went into a direct attack against the Jews, spewing lies with the hope that nobody would have the time to verify their statements.
Representative of the first group was a young man, who managed the volunteers at the parade. His point was that if there is no city money, many young people would never be able to get their volunteering experience at the gay parade. He didn’t mention QuAIA at all. Well, young men, women and unidentified, why don’t you get an experience by getting some REAL jobs?
Then we had that wacky Arab girl, who said that when Desmond Tutu visited Israel he said that the apartheid situation was ten times worse than in South Africa during the “real apartheid”. The statement caused a hearty laugh in the audience, but that’s the beauty of public presentation – nobody can check on
your statements. Is Tutu that senile now?
In a class of her own was an elderly woman, who was representing an organization of parents of gay youth. She had the looks of the proverbial “sweet old lady”, but there was nothing sweet about her views. She chastised the Mayor that since he signed recently some kind of a proclamation (no idea what that is) he should support the gay parade. According to her, many young gays, when “coming out” are ostracized by their families. So during the parade, her organization provides meals to them in a family environment to make them feel good.
My question to the sweet old lady is why do you do that only during the parade at taxpayer’s expense? You can do that all year long with your own money or through any gay charity. And of course, she didn’t mention QuAIA at all. Here is another question: if the young gays are so dear to her heart, why doesn’t she have the same feelings for the Jews? After all, organizations like QuAIA, which demonize Israel, provide the hate justification for anti-Semitism (currently in Europe, but soon to come to Canada).
Another one in the class of the shameless liars was Ms. Moore (in the picture with the Gaza boat t-shirt). In the beginning of her statement she stated that she represented 6,000 people from the Ryerson University student union (a hotbed of lefty wackos , which I had the misfortune to observe). Right after that she stated that she represented other organizations not able to attend – Toronto University, York University and others, so by the end of the first minute she claimed she was the voice of 240,000 people from Toronto. It is rare that you can see such a profound idiot in public. She attacked Israel to the best or her limited abilities.
She was wearing a Gaza boat t-shirt – that’s a boat project intended to violate Israel’s sovereignty and supported by the terrorist supporter George Galloway, the Canada Post workers union and other idiots. Noticing her message, Councillor Giorgio Mammoliti asked her what she was trying to say. She said she was willing to answer question about that, but there was no interest.
To acknowledge her stupidity, Blazingcatfur, who was standing next to me, booed her discretely. But that wasn’t discrete enough – the mainstream media reporters seated at the table in front of us gave him dirty looks expressing their utter disgust.
Another person from the sob story camp was “Susan”. The person had male physique, with male voice, but was wearing a dress and make-up. He/she/it identified himself/herself/itself as a “transgendered”. Unfortunately, she was the type of man who imagines that he is a woman – the horrible dress he was wearing and poorly designed make-up showed beyond any doubt that if you are a man who thinks he is a woman, the woman’s taste and finesse don’t come automatically with your delusions.
Anyway, “Susan” was upset that if the parade is defunded that would cause troubles for the “trans” – there will be no special housing for them. And if he had to go to a men’s shelter, he would be mistreated. Susan didn’t explain how the lack of parade money is going to send him/her/it to shelter. However, here is a suggestion for Susan – instead of acting like a freak, why don’t you acquire some skills and became gainfully employed? Then you won’t need shelters. And another message to the “queer community” – why don’t you lay down anti-Semitism and start educating the shelter bums and drunkards into accepting people like “Susan”?
It’s not going to work, because the Jews are a much easier target than the bums.
However, the most enlightening was the speech of Francisco Alvarez, who was a deputy manager of the gay parade. He also started as a sob story guy (at least he looked like a man). His iron-clad argument was that the parade must get funding, because the so-called Word Pride 2014 depends on it. That’s some kind of a world gay parade, which the Toronto homosexuals agreed to host (apparently without consulting the taxpayers).
The problem is that according to the rules of that parade, the host must have a balanced budget for three consecutive years. Without the city financing, they are not going to accomplish that. Next he went to state that the Toronto parade brings in $136 million to the economy, over 600 jobs, and $4 million in taxes.
At this point, Councillor Giorgio Mammoliti interrupted him with a question regarding their preliminary meeting. At that meeting, Alvarez was stated that he can’t guarantee the QuAIA exclusion from this year’s parade, so Mammoliti asked him to state the reasons in public.
Alvarez said that any group that wants to take a part in the parade must register. Since QuAIA decided not to take part, they are not registered. If they or someone like them decide to march anyway, they will be confronted by the marshals and referred to the police. However, if the group appears to be dangerous (probably like the guys with swastikas, this is my remark) or the police are not around, they’ll have no choice but to let them in. That’s why they can’t give guarantees. On top of that, they can’t police of their events during the parade week where QuAIA may decide to show up. When the councillor asked why they don’t just ban that group permanently, Alvarez replied that they cannot censor anybody.
That’s beyond pathetic. It reminds me of the “Seinfeld” episode where Jerry’s Uncle Leo was caught stealing books at Brentano’s and his excuse was “I’m old! I’m confused!” It’s the same situation here – the poor gays cannot oppose anti-Semites, because they are too defenceless.
What a piece of crap! A powerful minority, which successfully persecutes everybody who is against them and aggressively tries to impose the gay agenda in the school curriculum of Ontario can’t deal with a rogue anti-Semitic group. Do you really think that people are that stupid?
If their event really brings in $136 million, why can’t they extract $200,000 from it? If their parade’s management is so grossly incompetent, why don’t they hire some “affluent gays” or real promoters to manage it? If they do that, they’ll be able to get even Charles Manson’s family to march with them without any problems, instead of begging Rob Ford for a few thousands.
Speaking of Rob Ford, not so long ago Toronto’s gay paper Xtra published an article about Ford calling for his rape in order to get him under control. If such an article was about a homosexual or a woman, OHRC’s Barbara Hall and her squads would’ve destroyed the authors and the editors, but the white straight male is a fair target. A few weeks ago, another rag, Now Magazine (the largest prostitute directory in Toronto), published another disgusting smear about the Mayor.
I am not sure how representative of the gay community are the staffs of those papers. But it seems to me that it is beyond arrogant to come to City Hall and beg for handouts in support of an anti-Semitic group when you treat the Mayor in such a despicable and disgusting way. But of course, homosexuals in our society are far above the law.
So I have a question – if that filth about Ford is acceptable in the gay press, why should we fund any “queer community’s” events? Such behaviour is below the moral norms of even the most savage tribes on earth.
It’s your move now to prove me wrong, dear gay compatriots… Just don’t try the old and tired “homophobia” line, we are dealing with the issue of anti-Semitism here.
