That narrative of civilization under siege has been popularized by nationalist political parties across Europe and by right-wing media in the United States. Now, it has been normalized by Mr. Trump, who warned against "the hateful ideology of radical Islam" during his campaign. His chief adviser, Stephen Bannon, warned in 2014 that "there is a major war brewing, a war that's already global." Among the President's first acts in office was to slap a completely arbitrary ban on visitors, immigrants and refugees from seven Muslim-majority countries, which caused a furious backlash and total chaos.

Mentalfloss - do you actually read your own posts? Just wondering because you failed miserably in your accusations of people being "right-wing". You admit that Trump warned against "the hateful ideology of RADICAL ISLAM" not Muslims and he banned individuals from countries who support terrorism. If they happen to be Muslim countries, that's truly unfortunate but it wasn't Muslims he was objecting to - it's the terrorists stupid!!! I guess because Trump is hated so much, more is read into his actions than is deserved. While he is thinned skinned and a egotist, he is not your typical politician and calls things as he sees them and the PC crowd goes crazy!!! One of the few things I like about him LOL Love seeing people go nuts over his tweets.

Good post Dixie- Actually there's more to like about Trump than to dislike - actually the main things about Trump that I would question is he's a little impetuous & at times can be a little rude, crude and lewd.

Defence lawyers contest consecutive-sentencing in Quebec mosque shooter case

MONTREAL — A group of lawyers opposed to consecutive life sentences has been granted intervener status in an appeal of the sentence handed down to Quebec City mosque killer Alexandre Bissonnette.
The Montreal Defence Lawyers Association is arguing that the Criminal Code contravenes the Charter of Rights and Freedoms by allowing judges to stack life sentences for multiple murders instead imposing them concurrently.
Bissonnette, 29, pleaded guilty last year to six counts of first-degree murder and six of attempted murder after he walked into the mosque at the Islamic Cultural Centre during evening prayers on Jan. 29, 2017, and opened fire.
The Crown had requested a sentence of six consecutive 25-year terms with no chance of parole — 150 years in total — but Quebec Superior Court Justice Francois Huot opted for life imprisonment without the possibility of parole for 40 years, saying that a sentence beyond life expectancy would have been “absurd” and a charter violation.
The law, however, would have allowed the judge to impose a 150-year jail sentence, which is what the association is now challenging.

The lawyers argue that “a sentence exceeding life expectancy without review mechanism” would be “inconsistent with human dignity” and a violation of Section 12 of the charter, which grants protection from cruel and unusual punishment.

I would have given him 60 years with n/p. He would be 87 when he got out. The families of those he killed are at a loss for their entire lives so I think a lifetime in the doghouse would be fair.
