PTBC Columnist Team
Columnists -- with bite! We feature conservative-friendly writers from Canada and the U.S. who help clarify the difference between liberals and conservatives. All have personally agreed to be a part of our team here at PTBC.
Home-grown. It’s not just for vegetables, anymore.
But while the focus is on Canadian-born terrorists, turning against the only homeland they’ve ever known, there are mentors aplenty in the same category.
The real mentors of hate are as home-grown as maple syrup. They are the same-sex coupling of the loon-left media and left-loon academia.
The derivative arguments about the “social justice” concerns of terrorists are back. But analysts still cannot explain how killing innocent Canadians, itself an issue of justice, redresses injustices so far removed from the “theatre of operations.”
In the wake of last year’s London bombings, I wrote of the influence of Western anti-Westerners on vulnerable youth “of colour,” such as the ones who carried out the attacks. I wrote of bewildering, bigoted, BCTF (BC Teachers’ Federation) resolutions and failed resolutions, with regard to the Jewish State of Israel and the impact of all that in terms of “home-grown” terror right here in BC.
Just now consider the exact tone of reports of the death of al-Zarqawi, that weapon of mass destruction found in Iraq. Before any actual Muslim group said so, it was the Western media that declared the dead thug a martyr, without showing one piece of evidence of any martyrdom ceremony for the eliminated beast.
Barely days before his death, Zarqawi’s intractability was a marker of his invincibility. Now “experts” are emphasizing that Zarqawi was but a small fraction of the overall terror quotient in Iraq. You would think our media had some personal stake in not wanting the death to undermine continued terror against the American-led liberation of Iraq.
In the immediate aftermath of the splendid arrests of terror back east, extremist Law professors foamed at the mouth about the civil liberties of average Canadians. Yet there is not a shred of proof that real Canadians engage in activities that would regularly elicit suspicions of terror.
So the spin shifted ground. Somewhat. Sociologists are whipping up fears of a “backlash” against “innocent Muslims.” But again, innocent people of all backgrounds are as distinguishable from terror suspects as night and day.
Literally. Casey Grenier, neighbour of Steven Chand, the arrested suspect who reportedly personally wanted to behead Harper, said of the home in which Chand rented a basement suite, “You never see them during the day … always … early in the morning.” Grenier, apparently a Toronto Transit bus driver on the pre-graveyard shift, added, “I get home at about 2:30, 3 o’clock [in the morning] and you always see people coming in and out….”
It brings to mind that great line from one of the house managers/prosecutors in the impeachment of ex-president Bubba Billy Clinton. “My daddy used to say, ‘if you’re running around all hours of night, you a’int up to no good,’” referring to reported frantic, frenetic meetings at the oddest hours before dawn, involving apparent attempts to keep then White House intern Monica Lewinsky from blabbing.
Indeed, Ontario Liberal MP Wajid Khan, a Muslim, told the CBC, in the wake of the arrests, that his fellow-adherents must “actively seek out” terrorists in their midst, rather than going out of their way to dismiss seriously suspicious behaviour.
RCMP Assistant Commissioner Mike McDonell said of the suspects, “They’re all residents of Canada and for the most part, they’re all citizens,” adding, “They represent the broad strata of our community.” Perhaps that prompted Alvin Chand, suspect Steven Chand’s brother, to scoff in his brother’s defense: “He’s not a terrorist, come on, he’s a Canadian citizen.”
Perhaps that prompted Steven Chand himself to blow kisses to supporters at his arraignment. Perhaps he was thanking the RCMP, no less.
Perhaps good Canadians should scoff that perhaps the RCMP needs a new acronym: PCMP, Politically Correct Mounted Police.
Terror suspects are not like us. The CBC insists that they’re “in transition between Islam and Western society.” Excuse me! Terror is not a transition. Terror is full-term barbarity.
I said it in the wake of the London bombings. I say it again. These people, home-grown or not, are cold-blooded cowards. We should mark them with the mark of Cain.
