LIE-berals believe that labeling people they dont like as "racist" will help them win another election!!!!!!!!!!!
LIE-berals think it will be more effective to put nasty labels on people than to come up with honest policy or truthful answers regarding their own racism and bigotry against those who are critical of FAILED LIE-BERAL POLICY!!!!!
LIE-Berals think silencing critics is better for their election chances than creating honest and effective economic and social policy!!!!!!!!
Considering how many things LIE-BERALS are wrong about- it is impossible for them to alter their policy without first admitting THEY WERE WRONG!!!!!!
Here is an article illustrating the amount of double speak and apparent reverse bigotry prevalent at Ryerson University. With some comments of my onw in brackets):
Was Ryerson University pressured into cancelling Fatah speech?

The Canada-India Foundation had booked space at Ryerson University to hear a speech from author, columnist and activist Tarek Fatah, but Ryerson has since pulled the plug on the event. (CRAIG ROBERTSON/TORONTO SUN)
Curiouser and curiouser: That seems to be the state of affairs on some Canadian campuses over issues of free speech. Executives with the Canada-India Foundation were dismayed to have had an event cancelled by Ryerson University this week, with no explanation given.
The CIF Speaker Series had booked space at Ryerson to hear a speech from Tarek Fatah, the author and columnist controversial for his statements against Islamist extremism. Fatah, who writes for the Toronto Sun, is an award-winning author and activist who founded the Muslim Canadian Congress after the events of 9/11 — both to fight Islamism and to alleviate Islamophobia. He is the host of the Zee News TV talk show Fatah Ka Fatwa’ and is a sought-after speaker in Canada and India.
He is a champion of free speech. He is also a frequent recipient of death threats. On Aug. 10 his talk, which will be held at a location to be announced, will address “Ghazwa-e-Hind vs. the Ethos of Hindustan.”
Fatah speculates that Ryerson cancelled the CIF event because of pressure from various groups who would protest his speech, such as AntiFa Toronto or the school’s Muslim Students’ Association.
Ryerson’s cancellation was last-minute; a permit to use Ryerson University Campus Premises and Facilities was revoked with no explanation.
When Vipul Jani, executive director of the CIF, asked why the permit was cancelled, he received a response from Voula Cocolakis, executive director of Ryerson University’s Business Services, as follows:
“We certainly understand your frustration, but as per our Rules and Regulations for Permit to Use Ryerson University Campus Premises and Facilities, Ryerson may revoke or cancel the Permit at any time with or without cause.”
(As a facility dedicated to educational pursuits set legally to Cdn standards- I say Ryerson has some obligation to be open and transparent in its dealings with the public and to make its facilities available within reason to public use! Ryerson has not just dropped the ball here- they have punctured it and thrown it away !)
Cocolakis did not respond to an e-mail from the Toronto Sun; another e-mail sent to Ryerson president Mohamed Lachemi was replied to by Johanna VanderMaas, Manger of Public Affairs, as follows:
“Thank you for your email; I am happy to respond on behalf of the university.
Unfortunately, Ryerson was unable to accommodate the Canada-India Foundation’s room booking request for August 10; we have expressed our apologies to Mr. Jani and CIF. The university is not aware of any concerns or plans to disrupt Mr. Fatah’s keynote address.”
Asked for the actual reason for cancellation, VanderMaas repeated the above, noting it was the university’s official comment. One could be forgiven for thinking that Ryerson is ducking the question.
Or that the school is currently plagued by bizarre political goings-on — consider Toronto Sun columnist Sue-Ann Levy’s recent expose of the anti-Semitism a student faced in her dealings with Ryerson School of Social Work field coordinator Heather Bain — who is now on leave.
(It seems to be an open secret that radical forces are- as U of T. Professor Jourdan Peterson has suggested, have taken over some areas of study in our institutions and are pushing views and values not compatible with general public thinking.)
Freedom of speech issues are taking a drubbing on many North American campuses, with scheduled speakers getting cancelled more frequently, often due to threats of violence from groups who present themselves as occupying the high moral ground.
(Sadly- some of these radical groups such as Black Lives matter and OCAP. BLM is pushing a radical view that only white people can be bigots. And Both BLM and OCAP-The Ontari-owe Coalition Against Poverty are pushing views that ought to be scorned and Not rewarded with govt grants! OCAP- which presents a political view that is slightly left of Joseph Stalin often gets grants from Cdn auto workers union and other such labour groups. One has to think OCAP is being offered a sort of `conscience` money by the unions that are price gouging us so often with LIE-beral aid! In any case there are too many radicals and too few logical thinkers at our colleges and universities! It is becoming a poisoned and toxic workplace.)
