The alacrity and energy with which leftists all over the West rush to implement Sharia blasphemy provisions is astonishing. Mimi M. Whissell and the other Canadian government officials mentioned in this article have been thoroughly indoctrinated with the propaganda Big Lie that opposition to jihad violence and Sharia oppression of women and others is “Islamophobia” and “racism.” Note that “in August 2017, the Canadian Press reported that Douglass-Williams’ views were under investigation, alleging a ‘hindrance to her work with the foundation and an affront to its legally defined mandate, which is to help eliminate racism and racial discrimination in Canada.’”
What race is jihad terrorism again? What race is the forced hijab, child marriage, forced marriage, throwing homosexuals off buildings, etc.? What race are Muslims in the aggregate? If the Canadian government had a modicum of realism about the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat, and the smallest amount of decency left, it would understand that tracking the activities of jihadis and exposing their motivating ideology is an act of love, not of hate, an act of love for humane values, for civilization, for human rights, for just societies. If the Canadian government had even a scintilla of sanity, it would apologize to Christine Douglass-Williams and reinstate her to the Race Relations Foundation, or give her a position of greater influence.
Instead, we have this spectacle, of taxpayer-funded employees of the Canadian government scouring the writings of a Canadian citizen and fellow government employee for the crime of noting that jihadis use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence. Were Mimi M. Whissell and her colleagues padding their resumes in hopes of getting plum positions in the government of Pakistan?

Internal emails show that the Department of Canadian Heritage started gathering “emergency” information on the public speeches and writings of a critic of political Islam in the months before she was removed from her position at the Canadian Race Relations Foundation (CRRF), an arms-length government agency that aims to combat racism.
