Quebec City Shooting Angers Me

Well what do you know. Another angry, impotent white Christian male commits a mass shooting against a group that is demonized by those at the highest levels of power. Maybe they should be the ones banned from coming into the country and the lot of them should be shipped off to some Arctic archipelago where they can fight to the death for the last pile of pure white lands.

So now the bullshit shenanigans of the Hillbilly President have affected my country and the peace and security I usually feel for all of my fellow Canadians. Silly of me to do that in the post truth age when our society is full of time bombs like the maniac in Quebec City just waiting to be triggered with the password from their racist masters.

Again, this punk left a trail on social media that everyone ignored but it is impossible to know which hateful internet troll will take the final step and shatter the lives of so many people fighting a war that is only going on in their delusional minds.

As mad as I am about this whole incident I am most mad at the environment that those on the right have created because it gives people permission to kill in the name of hate and intolerance. No refugee has been linked with any terrorist incident yet all of them are banned from countries who themselves have sent NO terrorists to America. Show me one case that disproves my point. Now Saudi Arabia? They should be on TOP of any ban list but Trump has business with them so they get a terrorist pass and likely a discount if they buy more Trump Steaks.

Last week Lawrence Fishburn (Morpheus) was on the Daily Show and Trevor Noah asked if he could pull us all out of the Matrix. That is exactly the way I am feeling these days.

Insanity knows no bounds or borders. Hope this miscreant doesn't put your Cadet Program in a bad light. It seems like a good thing from what I know of it. Ignorance has adopted a mandate to display it's stupidity due to the Trump fiasco. A mosque got burned down in Texas last week. Figures.

I have no doubt that the shooter felt empowered or emboldened by Trump's anti-Muslim rhetoric but he was preceded by the PQ's whole racist "Charter of Values" bullshit in their last provincial election. Quebec is way too influenced by French and other European intolerant attitudes to diversity. We can't let our own homegrown bigot politicians off the hook for creating the atmosphere in which his hatred flourished.

Yup, this stuff is cumulative. He hears it all the time and then he feels entitled. I am glad they got him alive. Makes me sick.

Cal, I completely disagree with the ban but as for "No refugee has been linked with any terrorist incident..." is incorrect. The Boston Bombers were Chechen refugees and Abdul Artan (car guy in Ohio State) was a Somali refugee. Again, the ban is bad, unconstitutional and just plain wrong but blanket statements and overhype don't help.

I recommend Angela Wu Howard - international human rights activist and lawyer's extensive dissecting of the XO for pertinent talking points...its on my FB page, but its really, really long. She gets in the weeds.

Okay TWO refugees out of how many?? More TODDLERS have shot and killed a loved one with a gun. I think we need to start deporting those germy toddlers.

Oh and Michael. Thanks for arguing your point like an adult.
