The article in question is specifically an opinion piece and the author is an opinion columnist.
When was this the case? I think that you'll find that your image of journalistic integrity is mythology. Journalism has never had the neutrality and objectivity you imagine and opinion columnists have long existed.
First thing, you offer support and sympathy and condolences and, you know, can we send down, you know, EMTs or, I mean, as we contributed after 9/11? I mean, is there any material immediate support we have we can offer? And then at the same time, you know, over the coming days, we have to look at the root causes. Now we don't know now whether it was, you know, terrorism or a single crazy or, you know, a domestic issue or a foreign issue, I mean, all of those questions. But there is no question that this happened because there is someone who feels completely excluded, completely at war with innocents, at war with a society. And our approach has to be, okay, where do those tensions come from? I mean, yes, we need to make sure that we're promoting security and we're, you know, keeping our borders safe and, you know, monitoring the kinds of, you know, violent subgroups that happen around. But we also have to monitor and encourage people to not point fingers at each other and lay blame for personal ills or societal ills on a specific group, whether it be the West or the government or Bostonians or whatever it is, because it's that idea of dividing humans against ourselves, of pointing out that they're not like us and, you know, in order to achieve our political goals we can kill innocents here. That's something that no society in the world that is healthy, regardless of ideology, will accept.Quote has been trimmed
Trudeau was pretty quick to call the shooting at the QC mosque an act of terrorism. Now, I'm not saying it wasn't but here's a partial transcript of Trudeau taking about the Boston bombings;
Funny how you can be a Muslim, plant some bombs, kill 3 people and seriously maim and injure another 170 but we can't be too quick to judge it as terrorism. But if you're White guy who kills 6 people at a Mosque, well it's a clear cut case of terrorism.
Terrorism is terrorism, call it what it is. I'm getting real sick and tired of these Muslim loving apologists in the West who are too chicken sh*t to call Islamic terrorism Islamic terrorism.
I also notice one of the CBC bobble heads decided to imply that the Mosque killings were a result of Christian terrorism.
So why do you frame this as a Conservative MP who "Suddenly cares about commentators giving inflammatory and uninformed opinions about a religious group?"
Can you provide information about this MP's previous acts or support of outward inflammatory bigotry,
Politics are your beliefs put into action. I have no problem with anybody's political leanings. I have issues with the beliefs that drive them.
Your assumptions on what you think a person believes is of no consequence to the truth. Your perception may simply be flawed. It's actually quite arrogant to suggest that you know a person's motivations better that they do themselves.
Prejudging someone based on their beliefs is the exact thing you claim to be against. Hate to break it to you, but that's hypocrisy.
