Canada’s federal government plans to allocate $45 million to fight “systemic discrimination through community programs, public education campaigns and combating online hate,” according to The National Post.

The news story, published last month, downplays the government’s defense of Islam and inevitable punishment of its critics, even though “Islamaphobia” is cited in the story as a legal definition borrowed from the Ontario Human Rights Commission.

In other words, Canada is coming after the "haters."

“Favoring one religion over all the others, and then spending forty-five million dollars to teach that religion to Canadian students, this is nonsense,” complains Dr. Charles McVety, who is president of Canada Christian College and also leads the Institute for Canadian Values.

According to the Post story, $4.6 million is earmarked for creating an anti-racism secretary; $30 million to remove “barriers” in employment and participation in sports, arts, and culture; and $5 million to address “online disinformation” and “hate speech.”

The approved definition of “Islamaphobia” is:

Includ(ing) racism, stereotypes, prejudice, fear or acts of hostility directed towards individual Muslims or followers of Islam in general. In addition to individual acts of intolerance and racial profiling, Islamophobia can lead to viewing and treating Muslims as a greater security threat on an institutional, systemic and societal level.

So there is no balance at all, he says.

Writing at watchdog group The Clarion Project, Muslim author Raheel Raza says she testified to Canada's parliament that the term "Islamaphobia" dates back to the 1990s and the Muslim Brotherhood, when that organization was firsturing the West to view Muslims as victims.

"It is also in sync," she writes, "with a constant push by the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) to turn any criticism of Islam or Muslims into racism and bigotry."
