We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Apparently Jews and Christians are fair game in the West, but not scary Muslims. Why is that?
I will disparage such monsters as much as I want. In fact, as polite a person as I try to be, I will disparage anybody any time I want to. That is part of being a free person. Sad that Canadians might be too nice to be free. Can they see that enforced "nice" might not be a good plan?
Because Europeans and the Anglospheric colonies - Christians (and Jews to a lesser extent) ran things under the old order. They succeeded in being wealthy and powerful. They were sometimes unfair and even oppressive. Just like every other human group who as held power*. The unfairness and oppression were not the source of their power and wealth, they were real but secondary. But people like to pretend it was so, because the alternative theory - they were actually better at inventing things, arranging things, and cooperating for trade - is unthinkable.
What follows naturally is that because their gains had to have been ill-gotten, fairness and reasonableness is not required in dealing with them. It is a common view among those who finish second that they were somehow cheated. It is a very human temptation to believe a false reality that says you weren't bested, no not really.
Which is why reasoning with people about such things is unlikely to be successful. They didn't get to these opinions by reasoning.
*I would contend that Europeans, especially the hated Anglo-Saxons, are quite rare in that they have actually ceded power to others for reasons of conscience and fairness, rather than merely having it wrested from them. Many cultures have had slaves - very few have freed them. Most cultures have persecuted other religions - very few have stopped persecuting them. Yes, we have not done all that well. But we are at least the smart kid in the dumb row - and there is no smart row.

Unfortunately, Canada has neither freedom of speech nor freedom of religion.
Western people - maybe not the elitist idiots who comprise their rulers - will come to rue the day when they allowed unrestricted Muslim immigration into their countries. If they don't already, they will in the not too distant future. Expressing doubts about the peacefulness of Muslims is "hate", but calling for the killing of Jews and Christians is not. Idiots, fools, cowards, leading us all to the destruction of our culture, of our religions, of our country.
No rational human being would allow Muslims into their country, though intellectuals would. We've had over a thousand years of horrific evil from Islam and now have 57 examples of what happens when Muslims take over your country. We can either have civilized free society or Islam. We can't have both together. It's a POLITICAL ideology not a religion in any classic sense. They are Nazis with beards and funny hats. When the fascists of Europe take over AGAIN there will be a war and it will be a religious war. And all for what? Winston Churchill called it a long time ago and people still aren't listening to him. Not enough of a body count yet.
