The Jewish Defence League of Canada (not to be confused with the JDL in the USA) recently invited English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson to speak to their group on a video link from Britain. Needless to say, a number of progressive-minded Canadians were upset by this event, and there were protests outside the venue.
The video below shows a group of people discussing the issue on Michael Coren’s television program. Pay close attention to the liberal lady of the “why-can’t-we-all-just-get-along” school — she obviously doesn’t care for the EDL, and can’t help feeling that it is somehow to blame for the violence initiated by the anarchists protesting outside the event. Yet she can’t identify a single specific thing that the EDL has done wrong — it’s all about how she feels, the sort of climate they create, how Canadians don’t solve problems in this fashion, etc., etc.
We’ve got a long uphill struggle ahead of us. And that’s just against our own leftists — Islam is another matter entirely.
