But don’t hold your breath

We all await a condemnation of this hate crime by John Baird, Jason Kenney and/or the Office for Religious Freedom.

But, as noted, we won’t be holding our breath.

    Warren, here’s some definitions from the Conservative dictionary:

    HATE CRIME: (doesn’t exist)
    CRIME AGAINST WHITES: See, “terrorism”.
    CRIME AGAINST MINORITIES: See, “self-defense”.

      Dan, here’s some definitions from the Liberal dictionary:

      HATE CRIME: Let’s hug the offenders and shit on the victims. Lets rehabilitate them, Christians and Muslim have only every had love for each other, let them back out rehabilitated. Hate crimes fixed (wink, wink).

      CRIME AGAINST WHITE: No big deal, whites will be the minority in 40 years. We don’t care about Whites.
      CRIME AGAINST MINORITIES: Big problem, hurry and make a fuss, we are losing the “city” votes.

          You lost me…..what are you trying to say???

          • Dan says:

            I’m trying to say you’re an idiot, and you’re making stuff up that you can easily find with google.

          • Bill says:

            Your comments on the “conservative” dictionary needed a liberal version. Thought it required a response. I still think your criminal code “paste” in doesn’t make much sense. I think we all agree terrosist activity is illegal.

          • Pat says:

            “CRIME AGAINST WHITE: No big deal, whites will be the minority in 40 years. We don’t care about Whites.”

            I’m pretty sure there isn’t a single liberal that actually thinks that way. A crime is a crime. Why do you think there are so many more ethnic minorities represented in prison?

            Since when does a liberal hug the offender of a hate crime, or shit on the victim? Give an example at least. I’m not sure if you understand this, but the offender is the one who actually commits the hate crime, and those people are often white people, so I’m confused by your statement – do liberals hug white people, or hate them?

            On a more cynical note, I’m also pretty sure that even if white people become the minority every political party will put more emphasis on them than other groups – they hold many of the power positions, and that isn’t likely to change (unless society makes a crazy 180).

          • Bill says:

            Pat, your conservative dictionary was not truthful, so I followed your lead and exaggerated alittle.

            Things that are true:

            Liberals hug all offenders doesn’t matter if it is a hate crime, murder, child rape, etc.

            Are you kidding that white people commit the most hate crimes? Your delusional. Islamic terrorists
            tops the list, you know, the guy’s that like to blow them selfs up with lots of white people around. Terrorism
            is hate crime on steroids.

  6. Rob says:

    Grammar Alert: Warren, your sentence structure led me to believe Baird and Kenney committed a hate crime.

  7. MC says:

    The same Islamic Center was just targeted with hateful graffiti. There really ought to be a statement from someone:

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/story/2012/01/05/ott-gatineau-mosque-vandalism-graffiti.html

    I park in front of this building every week. Very pleasant architecture, quiet street, friendly people going in and out. Really sad.
