Anti-Semitic protestors at York University are pathetic scumbags
So, a group of people intimidate a bunch of Jewish students, chanting horrific garbage like “go back to the ovens.”
Shouldn’t this be a bigger news story?
Shouldn’t the police be investigating and making arrests?
Shouldn’t we be hearing about the “dangerous rise of Nazism and fascism”?
After all, what else can you call the video below:
‘“Intifada, Intifada, go back to the ovens,” were what Jewish and pro-Israel students had to endure on Wednesday night during a pro-Palestinian protest against a Reservist’s on Duty event at York University.”
That is straight-up Nazi fascist rhetoric.
So why aren’t the elites reacting like they would to a Nazi rally?
Is it because the people chanting that garbage don’t “look” like Nazis?
If so, why are we letting outward appearances distract from the truly horrific anti-Semitism that is spreading on some university campuses in our country?
Are we supposed to just put up with this?
And how the hell did these taxpayer-funded universities become havens for Nazi-style intimidation of Jewish students?
This is a disgrace.
This is disgusting.
And we need to start being honest about what these groups really are.
They aren’t just “pro-Palestinian protestors.”
They’re anti-Semitic fascist scumbags.
Again, the similarity between these so-called “protestors” and Nazis is unmistakable. If anything, these ‘pro-Palestinian protestors’ are even less subtle, with their outright calls for renewed genocide and open intimidation of Jewish students.
Having been to the Holocaust memorial museum in Washington D.C. as part of a high-school group that was taught about the Holocaust and what led up to it, I know beyond any doubt that these anti-Semitic scumbags must be stopped and dealt with now before they become even more emboldened.
At this point, the fact that these scumbags feel confident enough to straight-up call for genocide and intimidate Jewish students is a clear sign that things are already spiralling out of control.
Now, some might think it’s harsh to call these people “scumbags,” but what else can you say about people who are calling for genocide and pushing Nazi-style messaging?
If anything, “scumbags” is probably too nice.
These are people who are trying to bring back the worst and most violent aspects of the ideologies that caused millions of deaths in World War Two, tear Canada apart, intimidate Jewish students exactly the same way the Nazis tried to intimidate Jewish people in Europe, and unleash a horrific level of hatred and violence.
All true Canadians, of all backgrounds, faiths, and political viewpoints, must stand against the rise of anti-Semitic hatred before it’s too late.
Toronto-area GO Trains have been halted after protestors were cleared from weeks-long rail blockades near Belleville, Ontario.
The group, known as the “Wet’suwet’en Strong: Hamilton Solidarity,” migrated to the tracks of the Bayview Junction in the Chicago-to-Toronto rail corridor that also serves Amtrak, VIA, and Go Transit, The Globe and Mail reports.
The group said in a Facebook post that they were served with an injunction by police, which they “happily burned.” The group then set up blockades on the GO tracks, which the group has said is in response to the OPP’s dismantling of blockades on Tyendaninaga Mohawk Territory near Belleville.
Those blockades were broken up Monday morning after police forced protestors to leave, eventually arresting 10 people on the scene. The blockades, which stayed up for three weeks, caused nationwide economic stagnation as both CN rail and VIA rail had to temporarily lay off employees, along with other massive inconveniences such as supply shortages.
But after the blockade was taken down, the protestors saw it fit that they continue their rallies, this time on commute tracks.
The group posted on Facebook Monday, saying that “the violence the state has perpetrated towards Indigenous land defenders and their supporters, the forced removal and criminalization of Indigenous people from their lands” was their reason for protesting. “This is a pattern that has existed since settlers came to Turtle Island and that continues to exist today.”
Another blockade has been set up on Highway 6 in Caledonia, Ontario as well, blocking traffic between Argyle and Greens Road.
Anti-pipeline protestors took to the streets in both downtown Toronto and Ottawa this afternoon, bringing traffic to a halt. In Toronto, the major artery of Bloor Street was blocked. While in Ottawa, protestors stopped traffic in Byward Market.
Protests and blockades opposing the Coastal GasLink pipeline have entered their 12th day, bringing traffic and the nation’s economy to a standstill.
The scene in Toronto is intense, with thousands marching.
“Obviously we’re a country of the rule of law and we need to make sure that those laws are followed,” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said about the protests on Monday. “We are going to continue to focus on resolving this situation quickly and peacefully.”
Nationwide protests that claim to be in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en have exploded after RCMP arrested pipeline protestors on Wet’suwet’en territory. Protests have already effectively shut down VIA Rail and CN Rail and at least two US border crossings.
The Wet’suwet’en Tribal Council supports the pipeline project.
A huge group of anti-pipeline protestors swarmed the Toronto subway and blocked major train tracks on Saturday to spread their message of solidarity with demonstrators in northern B.C. who oppose the building of the Coastal GasLink pipeline.
After riding the subway from Matt Cohen Park to Pioneer Village, chanting with megaphones the entire way, the protestors arrived at major train track near York University where they proceeded to set up a blockade.
Police served an injunction to the anti-pipeline protestors, who proceeded to burn it in defiance. Protestors also threw rocks at drones that were monitoring the situation.
The emergency action was organized by Rising Tide Toronto and Porcupine Warriors and had 684 confirmed participants on Facebook. The actual number was closer to 200.
Via Rail announced on Thursday afternoon that they are suspending all train travel across Canada as a result of the ongoing anti-pipeline blockades. Most of CN Rail traffic has been affected as well
Liberal Transport Minister Marc Garneau said he “very concerned” by the anti-pipeline protestors, but has taken no action to remedy the situation thus far. There has been no definitive action taken by the Canadian government to clear the rails as of yet.
The protests and blockades began as a response to the raid of an anti-pipeline camp in Northern British Columbia that was set up to oppose the building of the Costal Gaslink pipeline on Wet’suwet’en territory.
The Wet’suwet’en Tribal Council supports the pipeline project.
The drop in temperature has been a bit much for many, including the earth’s surface. Toronto experienced what are known as “frost quakes” Friday, a rare weather phenomenon.
“My girlfriend and I were sleeping—and my girlfriend is a very heavy sleeper—but this boom woke up the two of us,” said Joel Lopez, who lives near Yonge Street and St. Clair Avenue to the Toronto Star.
“It was really loud.”
Lopez described the crack as sounding like a water pipe burst which he heard around 2 a.m. and again at around 7 a.m. Lopez heard another crack that he said sounded like someone dropping a dumbbell through his bathroom vent which seemed to cause a vibration.
The scientific name is “cryoseism,” and it occurs when there is a sudden drop in temperature that goes from above freezing to below 0 degrees Celcius which causes the water in the ground to freeze.
Kelly Sonnenberg a Weather Network meteorologist, explained the process of frost quakes, “The rapid cool-down allows groundwater to freeze and then expand causing loud cracking or popping sounds of the ground splitting,” Sonnenburg said. “Even minor shaking or rattling can be occasionally felt.”
Sonnenburg said that quakes are most common during midnight and dawn, when the temperatures hit their lowest overnight lows. Soil and rock that are saturated with water begin to expand which puts pressure on the soil and rock until an explosion occurs.
An extreme cold alert for Toronto has been issued by Environment Canada for Friday. Temperatures are expected to drop to -30 C with windchill for the GTA.
