WATCH: Trudeau Minister Fails Miserably Trying To Defend M-103

Minister of Heritage Melanie Joly probably thought she was going to get a soft interview when she went on CBC Power & Politics to defend the Trudeau Liberal’s controversial motion M-103.

That’s not what happened:

Instead, reporter Terry Milewski actually challenged Joly on the merits of M-103, challenges Joly was completely unable to answer.

Milewski pointed out that “Islamophobia” literally means “fear of Islam,” and noted that Islam is a religion, not a race. Milewski also pointed out that talking about opposing bigotry against Muslims – as a Conservative motion would have done – would make much more sense than using the word “Islamophobia.”

It’s not “Muslimophobia,” said Milewski, “it’s not phobia about people,” it’s “Islamophobia” which is a religion.

Milewski totally nails it, pointing out the hypocrisy of the Trudeau Liberals trying to turn the issue into racism, when it’s anything but.

He went even further, noting,  “Someone may say that ‘I object, strongly, to Islamic ideas like the death to apostates, death to the infidels, death to gays, they may object to those things and those are reasonable objections, and that’s “fear of Islam.”

Joly was clearly not prepared for Milewski’s truth-telling, and failed miserably trying to defend M-1o3. Watch the interview below:

M-103 is a terrible motion, and “Islamophobia” is clearly a word meant to shut people up rather than address a real problem.

If the Minister for Heritage has so much trouble defending M-1o3 against basic logic, it’s a clear sign that M-103 should be scrapped.

As Canadians, we must never let the government erode our right to free speech.

She has no friggin idea what in the hell she is talking about but will soon find out the definition to her ignorance.
She in my view, is very anti-Canadian, anti Canadian values, anti-jews, anti- Christian, anti-anybody who goes against her radical liberal party.
What saves the anti-Canadian liberal radical party is one and only the media.

I agree she is a typical Liberal, it’s her way or no way she will change her views, they can take their phobia and stick it up their ass. She is anti Canadian, along with Igra Kalidby pushing this bill it will do the opposite it will make it worse for every Muslim, and Canadians will fight back and never accept this bill, and I will be one of many

She never addressed the fact that Islam is not a race. It’s a political ideology or religion. Muslimsare believers of this ideology. Muslims are not a race. Since when is it a crime to criticize ANY ideology or belief system in Canada? This has everything to do with taking away our right to FREE SPEECH! Make no mistake! And by the way, the Quran is full of hate speech against infidels, Jews, and apostates. And this hate speech is being taught in Mosques in Canada. Why isn’t that addressed? And with so many immigrants coming to Canada from Muslim countries,… Read more »

She has to be one of the dumbest women I’ve ever had to listen too. This just shows what it takes to be a liberal, an empty head. Sounds a lot like her idol Trudumb with all the stuttering and dodging questions. He couldn’t get it through her thick skull what islamaphobia is haha. So liberal, charging for a cause when you don’t even know what or why. I guess now religion is classified as race.

Allen Burrell

Islam should not be considered a “religion” but a political ideology. It wants to take over the world and impose it’s values and expectations on the entire planet and/or “eliminate” those that will not convert. I define Islamophobia as the fear of a political ideology which is not compatible with normal and established western values. Then it all makes sense.

Allen, a “phobia” is defined as an “irrational fear”. Nothing you speak to can be considered irrational.

Stupid Canadians who don’t know any better. They REALLY didn’t know just how good we had it with Harper. They voted for a face that turned out to be a traitor. He won’t defend our border to illegals seeking “asylum” from the United States. Yes, the United States!! Now it’s just one tax grab after another to pay for programs that certainly don’t benefit the middle class. Only the Liberals can think they can grow the middle class by making them extinct.

Central Canada William. Specifically Ontario and Quebec. They would like to change their minds now, but it’s too late. We do NOT have recall legislation for any federal government and they will NOT allow the Governor General to do his job and remove Trudeau at the request of the Canadian people. We are strangers in our own land. Welcome to how the west always feels in this country.

The more she talks the less sense she makes. If what she is saying is true and muslim hate crimes are going up then enforce laws that are already in place. People are angry and don’t want to support this motion because they don’t agree with the Islamic faith teachings. The teachings of the Islamic faith go against our way of life and laws of our country. That is fact. There are laws in place to protect people from discrimination already so how about the police just do their jobs. This motion is just further aggitating people and will only… Read more »

I agree the police should enforce the law that is according to our constitution and under the Charter or rights and the government needs to support the police to do this. She states that “we know there are hate crimes against the Muslims”. Is she in a dream world….what about the Jews in our country and by the way I am not Jewish but I do not like to see anyone hurt because of their “religion”. It is not just the Muslims….I do not want to see them hurt. We do have that freedom in Canada ….freedom of religion, freedom… Read more »

She admits other “phobias” such as homophobia, etc, yet isn’t championing a law to protect them specifically. She doesn’t care that the attack on parliament hill was by a muslim, who killed a non-muslim, nor the week prior the targeted attack, one of whom was killed, by a muslim. She would have more credibility if she expressed concern about all of that violence, not just that against muslims. The Charter guarantees that all people are to be treated equally, and M103 flies in the face of this. We already hate laws and hate speech laws in this country to protect… Read more »

Muslims, like ‘every’ other Canadian are already protected under our Constitution. The woman pushing for this motion is Iqra Khalid…a Muslim who was president of the Muslim Student Association at York University. The MSA was founded by adherents of the Muslim Brotherhood in 1963. The MSA has a series of alumni who have become suicide bombers, ISIS fighters and ISIS propagandist. Iqra Khalid describes herself as a brown, ‘muslim’, Canadian. This woman is an MP…in Canada…and she does not consider herself a ‘Canadian’ first and foremost. How does someone like this end up in a leadership roll in this country.… Read more »

All the Liberal party had to do was eliminate one word, Islamaphobia, and everyone could agree on this motion. The fact they would not is troubling, makes you wonder what sort of hidden agenda is lurking in the background. As mentioned by several others, we already have the Charter and laws such as the hate speech laws that protect us. We do not need a government task force, if it goes this route, to look into the causes of racism or bigotry, we already know the answers to that. We do not need motions that single out one group of… Read more »

As a Jew, I demand a motion against anti-semitism. Jewish synagogues, community centres and Jewish people are constantly under threat and under attack. Nobody hates the Jewish religion, rather, people hate the Jews as a group. There are many documented hate crimes against Jews and yet, the only thing this friggin government cares about is Islamophobia? There should be a law that protects ALL religious and cultural groups !!! WTF !!!!

Why is it so difficult for this person to understand that you can not mandate against fear?
Islam is an ideology with religious, political and military components.
I am afraid of the time when all these components of this ideology are imposed upon our nation.
What will this honorable member of parliament propose then to protect people?
I believe we already have laws against hate crimes against any and all members of our society.

Muslims want m-103 now because Canada is catching on to what they are all about! The big question to bear in mind is why the Islamophobia motion was unanimously agreed upon in Parliament.The motion demands that Islamophobia be treated as a crime without understanding or defining the offence.Canada is allowed to be concerned about this m-103! Canada first not Sharia law.

Wow, even if she explained herself in French , it would be difficult to follow the illogic, systemic racism of Muslims, what race is a person practising the Islamic religion? Prejudice of Islam? We are going to make a law prohibiting criticism of a religious ideology that promotes murder? I wonder who voted for her and what they think of her, she’s cute, Oh that’s a critical comment of her appearance, that will be a criminal offense soon.

This is semantics. The term ‘Islamophobia’ denotes the creation in the western mind of a boogeyman out of Islam but c’mon, by extension this touches Muslims, for without Muslims – living, breathing, working, praying humans a shared general monotheistic faith – there is no Islam. Are you going to get nitpicky about Antisemitism? Because guess what? The 19th c. categorization of Jews and other people of eastern Mediterranean origin into the ethnicity ‘semites’ has been discredited as it was just another western orientalist view of brown ‘others’ not of the European Christian faith. So the term has evolved a century… Read more »

If history documents a religion we ought to fear, the gold medal without a doubt belongs to politicsl Christianity. The murders and other crimes against humanity committed in the name of the cross stretch from Tierra del Fuego to Baffin Bay, across Eurasia, Australasia, throughout Africa (still today killing gay people in Uganda). It’s hard to defend this record. Instead, attack the new ascendant other before learning our own historical lessons.

Rogue Primate writes that “Muslims are living in fear in this country.” I honestly believe that no one should be living in fear in any country. And perhaps, Rogue Primate, should consider how many millions of Christians and Jews are living in fear in so many other countries before he/she cries out only for the problems here. The fact is that Islam, yes, which is adhered to by Muslims, is the “intentional and unapologetic” aim and goal and premise of the religion. Period. Regardless of what you call it and what we mean by Islamophobia — that fact does not… Read more »

When any government (or people) lose their moral compass, they have lost all sense of direction. As Conrad Black says in another national Canadian newspaper today, when you say there is “no God” — you cannot say then that there is a “right” and a “wrong”. So anything goes that makes anyone feel better at a given time — like winning votes.

At this moment in time, it may seem a waste of time, but I must repeat what I had said back when this ‘issue’ was skillfully designed by lawyers who have the ability to create confusion with wording as they intend, and the typical Liberal vocabulary for anything they bring forth which, to an average person is a clear as a painted picture, and deny there is any similarity to what the ‘average’ person sees, to what the real issue is.
