“Putin is President of the whole Middle East now? That's like saying well diplomacy didn't work with North Korea so....
If you wanted a more apt reference you'd have been better off using another European country, hell even USSR would have been more apt, instead you are using a completely different area/culture, with a different history and even a completely different present.”

“Because he's personally in mourning? It was his father who died? It was during the funeral? It was at the funeral in front of the casket? Trying to understand why he should have refused taking the picture with that random lady, also trying to figure out how in your mind that is a photo op, seeing how it was arranged and all.”
“This is highly amusing, you have no ground on your arguments so you resort to attacking me instead of my arguments.
Tell me mate when you said these things happen isn't that excusing his behaviour? When you claimed we didn't know what was happening in the marriage wasn't that a justification? Irony and hypocrisy just reeks out of you in the worst of ways, your arguments were weak and your attacks even weaker.”

“Still waiting for your reading comprehension to kick in and realize that I didn't make an excuse for him. You can accuse me of attacking you all you want -- all I am doing is pointing out the reality of your skills deficit. And you keep using this word hypocrisy, I do not think you know what this word means. You aren't using it correctly. So sad. But go on, I know you just have to have the last word.”
“You really want to say you haven't made excuses for that guy? The second half that's just plain irony/hypocrisy.”
J5K on Apr 14, 2014 at 13:25:42
“The second half explains why you are still trying to claim that I made excuses "for that guy". You clearly have either poor reading comprehension or are willfully misrepresenting what I said... which would make you intellectually disingenuous. So, which is it?”
“Why are you making excuses for him? Don't know what the marriage was like, he was having sex with his best friends wife. The blame also does lay with the spouse, but the way you commented you make it sound like he didn't have a relationship of his own with the guy, they were BEST FRIENDS, there wasn't a vow but he back stabbed him pretty hard there.
I am trying to understand where you are coming from and the stance you are taking but it doesn't hold water in this scenario, there is no feasible way that this can be justified.”

“I didn't make excuses for anyone. You should work on your reading comprehension.”
“Nothing just happens, we either set things in motion or we let them happen, but the idea that this just happened is ludicrous, take responsibility for your actions instead of such a lame excuse.”
J5K on Apr 12, 2014 at 22:11:21
“Wrong. Sometimes things do just happen. Not always, not necessarily in this case, but sometimes.
And who are you to judge him? You don't know the facts, you don't know what the marriage was like, you don't know any of the circumstances that may have lead up to this. And again, the blame should lie with the spouse who cheated, not the person who didn't take a vow.”

“So you forgoe their other policies because they support business?? Do you realize how simple minded that is, to not realize that a political party is multi-faceted, there is a centre to the left and right wing side of politics, and that is mostly w
here the PQ is situated. Again really with the papers?”
Apr 8, 2014 at 08:31:52
“First, not sure about the wrong again, but first time I said anything to you, so that was odd.
Second, How many conservatives, look for absolute secularism, looking to remove religion from public life? Not very rightwing in that ideology, hence the centre-left, left for the promotion of that level of secularism, and centre for the soverignty ideas, and their less than ideal immigrant attitudes. Honestly if you think just because a paper is for or against a political party decides that parties leanings, you live in a very black and white world.”

“Papers support their politics. Always have. The Toronto Sun supports rightwing policies. And they supported and predicted a PQ win, along with their CEO running as a PQ. No, they aren't leftwing. Never heard anyone call the Liberals a rightwing party anywhere in Canada because they are not. Many politicians in the PQ support business policies and legislation. That's rightwing. Always has been no matter what people like to call it.”
Apr 7, 2014 at 21:10:53
“The PQ is centre-left, so neither of you is technically correct, they are left due to their secularism, but seen more as centre due to their separatist ideology etc etc.”
Cementhead234576454 on Apr 8, 2014 at 07:48:38
“Wrong again. They are bestest buds with federal Conservatives to the point that Conservatives ran in this election as PQ. Owner of Toronto Sun is left? Don't think so. The PQ is, was and always will be a Quebec first, rightwing party.”

“Then bring it up, there are multiple social settings that you can go to with a story like that, media would pick up that story, the authorities can't do anything about it, if they don't know about it.”

“Alas it seems non event to the media. Not long ago in my respectable suburban neighbourhood 16 years old Muslim girl was murdered by her family because they discovered that she was not wearing hijab when out and about.
At the time my daughter was a toddler and I spent a lot of time with her at the park near the public elementary school. I saw the mothers wearing hijab and niquabs supervising the recess. The segregation of Muslim boys and girls was visible. Just like the drivers who see the police patrol are very carful so were those kids.
I wrote the letter to the local papers, was published by one and that is all.
I assure you that making complaints about the teacher is not the easy or rewarding process and I am not going to repeat it in a hurry. My older son suffered as a result of my action and I regret doing it now. Especially that it is a road to nowhere.
I do not want to be labelled as a bigot either.
I have a stories to tell when I was a manager of the well known restaurant and I had to accommodate a requests from Muslim kitchen porters to pray during working hours. The company Director would rather do that then risk the confrontation.
Legal suits are time consuming and costly.
Did you ever read blogs by one Amira Elghawaby? She chooses not to post my comments.”

“That doesn't happen here in Canada, none of those things happen here, where parents supervise a recess, or officers taking lightly reports of harassment and possible detention.”
beatae on Apr 6, 2014 at 20:37:28
“Well, it is happening here in GTA Ontario. And I can see it with my own eyes. Especially elementary schools are prone to say yes to all sorts of requests to accommodate praying during school hours and not allowing girls in mix group settings. All done quietly to avoid confrontations.”
Apr 6, 2014 at 12:22:51
“Bringing up a civil suit of that nature in Canada is fairly easy and simple, not sure what you mean about police reports and arrests of people belonging to islamic moral patrols, but thats just odd, maybe I didn't understand that part properly, but if someone who isn't an officer stops you like that, its actually akin to a crime itself. There is no tide here, and we can wait for years and years but any hardline group that wishes to apply sharia law or anything akin to it, is in for a rude awakening, cause that isn't happening here with that level of ease.”
beatae on Apr 6, 2014 at 13:28:37
“Well, people who are harassed by Islamic police on the street go to the police station to make a report. Police go to check the street and sometime make an arrest. Then the case is going through the legal system and drags on. Guess what, people learn fast to avoid certain areas to avoid the hassle. Then some white supremacist group take on themselves to retaliate and suddenly the right and wrong is all mixed up.
The ground is already prepared for the tide. Just wait and see.
Some public schools allow the volunteer parents to supervise the recesses and guess what Muslim mothers do? Make sure that the girls are well separated from boys. Then they make polite requests to accommodate the same in case of group projects. Then there are more and more requests, they can't stop really. Islam regulates every aspect of the daily life and secularism in public life is an alien concept.
The rude awakening usually happens to people who deny the problem.
I am not fun of PQ and their Charter. So I wish there would be another way to stand up for secularism.”

“Interesting, but over here you can bring up a civil suit if something like that were to occur as it is in direct violation of your rights, being denied service over clothing such as that, and I'm fairly sure that England has similar laws such as that.”
beatae on Apr 6, 2014 at 12:14:37
“Sure. If you have time and money. There are police reports and arrests are made of people belonging to Islamic moral patrols who tell passing couples not to hold hands on certain streets. It changes nothing. The tide is too high.
Just wait and see. It starts with accommodation at local YMCA and school.
Gender equality should be non negotiable anywhere anyplace.”
“HAHAHA, we want to go with the type of war crimes, along with civil crimes have been committed by Americans? Need we remind you of the camps during WWII that American Japanese were held in, Vietnam ring a bell mr. outraged? Guess who the arm chair general is right now Jason.”

“Yea, none of those points are close to being true, I'm sorry are you off your meds or do you just not know much about Canada in general, we have our own identity, values, and soul, I mean for a country under attack by Islam we sure didn't have much trouble passing same-sex marriage, goodness gracious.
I've lived in England, your culture is dead and it isn't immigrants who killed it but the brits themselves. Not much you can do aboot it eh.”

“We respect Islamic rights, we respect Islamic religion and they can practice their beliefs in their mosques. We even accommodate on some smaller issues, but there is no problem in regards to Islamic laws overtaking the law of land in Canada, things such as Sharia Law can never float or pass the test in this country just due to the fact that it discriminates against mainly women, the punishments are too barbaric especially in a country that doesn't have a death penalty and who's life sentence is 25yrs.
In short. It's not an issue in Canada, it can never be an issue in Canada unless we do away with our charter, lastly we aren't London, UK, so please do calm down.”
beatae on Apr 6, 2014 at 09:51:13
“Well, I hope you are right.
I lived in England for many years and I remember the same reassurances like yours.
Fast forward 15 years and voila! Sharia is not accepted as an alternative legal system in England either. Yet in practice Muslim communities created the enclaves where sharia rules. Last summer I walk into newsagent to buy paper just off Marble Arch in London. This particular street was always full of Middle Eastern shops but friendly enough. I was ask to leave the shop because I did not wear hijab.”

“Your Charter will only last until minorities take over your diminishing colonial political powers.
It is not an issue for YOUR Canada already blended into the American culture. From a cultural perspective, English speaking Canada of British origins is already gone...
English Canada is not the UK in more ways than one. First and central, London is the seat of a deep rooted culture, where English-speaking Canada has none.
As of today, all cultural communities in Canada, other than English-speaking from British origins, that constitute its multiculturalism have solidely rooted culture values to grip on.
Having grossly failed to built your English only Canada, it has been turned into an international multicultural refugees camp with no soul, no values of its own, nothing but a drifting colonial debris. So much for... respect !”

“HAHAHA, the best part of all this you don't realize the truth about politics, one party is 6 the other is half a dozen, you harp on Trudeau, but yet none of the other parties look that great, but you have this odd conservative bias, that makes you think one party looks better than the other and that they don't have their share of stupid comments.
On another note, your comment wasn't an opinion before but that is a very nice attempt at clarifying or at least backtracking, I hear conservatives are very good at that. Hmm this game of false stereotypes is actually boring, I don't get why you do it, does nothing for me.
You still fail at the intricacies of the English language, and basic comprehension, did you pass our grade 10 literacy test?”
Apr 5, 2014 at 17:58:01
“Sooo stupid and partisan, let me explain the intricacies of the english language and forum decorum to you. When we comment on an article in a forum it is usually about the article unless specified in our comment. Your comment placed on this article means that you believed that Trudeau actually made the comment which we now all know he didn't whether this was plain ignorance on your part due to not reading the article or you just didn't understand the article I don't know or care to speculate any further than this.
Now if you want to disseminate your comment you say that Trudeau speaking is helping the conservatives and considering which article you placed said comment in and you not specifying another instance it leads us to think your statement is false and misinformed.
To further make it simpler for you to understand, as above may have been too much for you, your use of the english language sucks as does your comprehension of it, you would be better off using your time to improve on it, rather than trying to be a political commentator. Massive use of the word trying.”

“LOL I am right. It is an opinion and in a year you will find that I will probably be right. Tough luck. Oh and thank you for teaching me the intricacies of the English language. That is absolutely the reason I comment on here.”
