Bill C-51, the legislation dealing with terrorism in Canada, has been discussed in the House of Commons for a while, causing controversy mainly because of concerns about its possible consequences. Some are concerned that it may give too much power to some government agencies. Despite that, Justin Trudeau’s Liberals are willing to support the bill.
Those who are against it called rallies on Saturday in different cities across Canada. In Toronto about 1,000 people showed up on Nathan Phillips Square in front of City Hall. On Twitter many participants and organizers shared ecstatic messages about the overwhelming popular resistance against the “dictatorial bill.” The reality was that the gathering was dominated by the same hard-core downtown lefties who always show up at any event, where some Harper-bashing is needed.
Looking at those odd people, it was impossible to avoid the thought that no matter what the flaws of Bill C-51 are, they’ll cause much less damage than putting into practice the plans and recommendations of the crowd that showed up. Of course, all public employees unions were represented, and some of their leaders, like Sid Ryan, were keynote speakers.
Numerous organizations of the extreme left were also there – selling booklets and papers or promoting their causes. Plenty of anarchists (many of them with face masks), communists of different stripes, the Green Party (represented by Elizabeth May) – naturally the dominant mainstream party was the NDP, which sent a few MPs.
It was easy to spot a few Indian organizations mostly because of the same old faces – anybody who has followed their activities, can’t miss the fact that always the same people show up (whether it’s Idle No More, no-pipelines-in-native-lands or any other extortionist event). They included a few real Indians and many more white people, who probably claim to be Indians, many of them smoking marijuana and burning some stinky grass that makes breathing around them almost impossible.
They were most likely concerned that their eco-terrorism may fail under the new legislation. At the rally a white girl carried around a large cardboard sign (she was wearing it) with the words “This is Turtle Island”. She was asking everybody to sign it – it wasn’t clear whether she was planning to deport the non-Indians (in that case she should start with her self-deportation).
The lunacy that dominated the protest was painfully visible in the signs the crowd carried. There were a few smaller signs (mostly opposing “Islamophobia”) printed by unions, but the majority were written by the protesters themselves and that was the scary part. The messages created a strange image of Canada, where everybody lives peacefully, there are no terrorists, but the evil fascist gang of Stephen Harper plans to introduce a legislation dealing with imaginary issues with the sinister goal to impose a brutal dictatorship over the beautiful people of Canada.
Surprisingly, Lenin’s Bolsheviks are still going strong in Canada under the name “International Bolshevik Tendency.” They displayed a whole program in large signs – in their opinion, capitalism can’t be fixed and we have to fight for socialism. They hate “Islamophobia” and warn us that Harper wants to establish a surveillance police state.
Those people may look comical in their almost complete detachment from reality, but that’s what makes them dangerous. Given the opportunity, they will establish a dictatorship, which in the name of “saving the planet,” “fighting the reactionaries” or any other crazy idea would use the same methods we have already seen under Lenin, Stalin or Hitler.
That insane asylum had leaders, who were not that different from the inmates. I already mentioned Sid Ryan and the NDP MPs. The latter took time to explain that the only great leader, capable of destroying the evil legislation, was Tom Mulcair. We also had to endure the squealing of Judy Rebick, who taught the crowd a new complicated chant and assured it that Harper has no right to tell them what to wear. Next to Judy was standing the notorious Islamist Zafar Bangash (not far from his sidekick Ali Mallah).
Along with Elizabeth May’s talk, we enjoyed the “poetry” of a chubby hijab girl, which consisted of angry rants and screams. She explained that her name was Nassim, which in English meant “breeze,” but that colonial language couldn’t express the beauty of her name. That was followed by the crazy screams of Pam Palmater from Ryerson University about the terrible consequences of the bill for the “aboriginal women.”
It was strange to spot my MP Adam Vaughan, now a member of the Liberal Party. His master Justin Trudeau stated that he was going to support Bill C-51. I wonder if Adam was playing his own politics or just felt nostalgic for his office at City Hall.
There were many reporters from the mainstream media, but as usual, it is doubtful if they are going to cover what I saw. Seeing a reporter from the new information channel The Rebel Media gave me some hope that we may see at least part of the mass insanity exposed.
That was just another day in the life of the Toronto Left. With the new federal elections coming soon and the end of the cruel winter, we can surely expect more of the same events.
