Canadian Parents Confront School Board Over Muslim Prayer, Rip Up Quran

In Canada? In milquetoast Canada? Anyone want to bet that the liberal MSM won’t touch this? 

Canadians Confront School Board Over Muslim Prayer, Rip Up Quran

(Image: Screenshot/YouTube) When do people finally stand up and say, “We’ve had enough!”? A group of parents in Ontario, Canada, stood up to the Peel District School Board in Mississauga on Mar. 22 and drew the line.

At a public board meeting in Mississauga, Ontario, “The Peel School Board approved Islamic sermons and prayers in schools, where students and preachers can pick whatever prayer they want in Arabic with no translations,” reports LiveLeak. “Then they excluded a politician and media baron Kevin Johnston, who opposed them. Then they refused to discuss the issue at their public board meeting.”

That’s when all hell broke loose.

“That’s a book of hate!” a man shouted at the board.

“This is a shame!” one parent yelled.

“You’re setting up Sharia law is what you’re doing, and you’re gonna pay for it!” said another. “You’re supposed to be a leader — you’re supposed to be the educated ones!” he added.

Parents throughout the room argued and yelled in order for the school board to actually hear their concerns since the board members didn’t want to hear them in the first place.

Perhaps the most powerful and controversial act was when a man tore up the Quran after the Peel School Board refused to hear the parents out.

Tensions were most likely escalated since the meeting took place on the day of the London terror attack.

“Do you feel pain for London?” one man asked the board. “Do you feel pain for Coptic Christians?”

Apparently the school board members didn’t feel any pain, because they decided that instead of tackling the issue at hand, they would simply leave the building.

Whatever your opinion on Muslim prayer being allowed in school, the school board did themselves no favors by refusing to listen to the concerns of parents that pay their salaries.

Media Cries ‘Islamophobia’ as Hindu-Right Gains Ground in India

It’s one thing to have a phobia of rattlesnakes. It’s another thing not to want to invite them into your bed. 

Yes, I just compared jihadists to rattlesnakes. 

Mainstream media is reeling following the victory for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Hindu-Right BJP party in nationwide state elections, with leading liberal newspapers and news outlets raising the cry of ‘Islamophobia’ in India.

The UK’s left-wing newspaper The Guardian called the Hindu-Right electoral gains in the biggest Indian state of Uttar Pradesh (UP), which has a population of 220 million, “a victory for anti-Muslim bigotry”. Aiming its criticism of the man elected to run the state — a 44 year-old Hindu Monk — Yogi Adityanath, The Guardian complained  that “[Adityanath] backs a Donald Trump-style travel ban to stop “terrorists” coming to India.”

According to Indian media reports, President Donald Trump called Prime Minister Modi today to congratulate him on his electoral success.

The left-wing news website Vox was equally critical of UP state’s newly elected Chief Minister Adityanath, writing that “he publicly supported President Donald Trump’s ban on refugees and immigrants from seven Muslim-majority nations, stating, “Similar action is needed to contain terror activities in this country.””

The Washington Post profiled the monk-turned-politician, Adityanath, with a story titled “Meet the militant monk spreading Islamophobia in India”. The Washington Post held India’s PM Modi responsible for the rising Islamophobia:

[Latest election results] points at rising Islamophobia in India, aided and abetted by the far right and the elephant in the room ever since the unexpected win of Narendra Modi in the 2014 national elections. Adityanath’s anointment as the chief minister of a state that has been a hotbed of communal tension for more than two decades suggests that this Islamophobia is taking deeper roots.

Father of accused Rockville rapist detained by immigration authorities

Father of accused Rockville rapist detained by immigration authorities

Federal immigration agents have detained the father of the 18-year-old Guatemalan, who is accused of violently raping a high school classmate in Rockville, Maryland, for being in the US illegally. The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) confirmed on Monday that Adolfo Sanchez-Reyes, 43, was arrested on Friday at his home in Rockville, “after a review of his immigration history revealed he was unlawfully present in the United States.”

More:

“He was issued a notice to appear in immigration court, and is currently detained at the Howard County Detention Center in Jessup, Maryland,” ICE said in a statement, quoted by WUSA-TV.

Attorney Himedes Chicas told reporters that Sanchez-Reyes surrendered peacefully. No court date has been set as of yet.

Sanchez-Reyes is the father of Henry E. Sanchez-Milian, one of two suspects in the recent rape of a female student at Rockville High School that brought the issue of criminal acts committed by illegal immigrants into the national spotlight. The other suspect was identified as Jose Montano, 17.

Idaho Freshmen announce formation of Idaho Freedom Caucus

From the LMT: 

Reps. Mike Kingsley and Bryan Zollinger say they feel conservative message is going unheard

Two freshmen representatives looking for a productive way to advance conservative ideals announced the formation of an Idaho House Freedom Caucus on Monday.

Reps. Mike Kingsley, R-Lewiston, and Bryan Zollinger, R-Idaho Falls, will be co-chairmen of the group. They expect to have at least 10 members initially, but 24 showed up to a late-afternoon informational meeting.

The proposal to create a conservative caucus comes at the tail end of a session that’s been marked by frequent conflicts and procedural disputes between House Republican leaders and a group of far-right lawmakers that includes Reps. Heather Scott, R-Blanchard, Ron Nate, R-Rexburg, and Priscilla Giddings, R-White Bird.

Kingsley said the Scott-Nate group has some good ideas, but they’ve undermined their own efforts by directly challenging the established leadership hierarchy.

“We feel like the conservative message isn’t getting out,” he said. “Some walls have been built, some barriers. We need to come together as a group to get our message into meaningful bills.”

The caucus is modeled in part on the congressional House Freedom Caucus, which made a name for itself by ousting House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, in 2015. The group also played a role in blocking the Obamacare repeal-and-replace bill last week.

“We love what they’re doing in D.C. with their Freedom Caucus,” Kingsley said. “They’re having an impact.”

Zollinger, however, suggested the Idaho House Freedom Caucus will be a kinder, gentler version of its congressional counterpart.

That according to witnesses at the restaurant. Too bad no one posted the video yet from their cell phones.

If you didn’t think that this year’s politics could get any more divisive (or weird), think again. According to a report from Page Six, things turned ugly on Sunday night when a pleasant conversation erupted into a brawl in a Manhattan Restaurant.
