Welcome to the 1930s

Kathy Shaidle posts video from yesterday's pro-genocide rally in downtown Toronto ("Jewish child, you are gonna fuckin' die!"). They do not call her Five Feet of Fury for nothing. This is a great woman who is nevertheless small in stature. It is a sin she should be left to stand up to the horde.

For shame.

I will not be updating until late tomorrow or early Tuesday. I am going to leave this here for awhile.

Francesca Segal: As a British Jew, growing antisemitism makes me feel that I am no longer safe.

My little sister arrived back at her university last week to discover buildings had been daubed with antisemitic graffiti. Across north London, the same scrawled vitriol has been appearing - "Jihad to Israel", frequently accompanied by the message: "Kill Jews."

To "the left": You are responsible for this evil. One way or another, you will be held responsible for this evil.

To the rest: Look to defend yourself and your families. The police will no longer protect you; they will attempt to disarm you or - should you speak out - act as agents of the courts that will harass, censure, fine and imprison you.

It always starts with the Jews. If death threats can be uttered against Jewish children in broad daylight in full view of the police it is a very short step to black masked gangs beating gay men in the streets to women gang raped or mutilated with acid for refusing to wear the veil ("feminists" will be the first to adopt the practice and the first to point fingers at women who refuse to submit) and the public butchery of film makers daring to question the treatment of women held in bondage by Islam.

One word: Amsterdam.

Anyone care to offer an over-under on the first Toronto carbeque? I can only pray there is enough of the old Canada left to confront this directly. Peace, order and good government is slow to awaken but was ruthless once upon a time. Time to summon the spirit of Christie Pits.

Dr. Levitt says the legend goes that trucks were commandeered, and trolled along roads in the traditionally Jewish neighbourhood of Kensington Market as passengers called out that Jews were being attacked in the Pits.

People grabbed whatever they could find — a brick, a pipe, brass knuckles, a pool cue — and ran north to become a part of the swarm in the park. Some say there were hundreds. Or else thousands. Or else tens of thousands there that night.

And the legend, according to Dr. Levitt, says it was the first time Toronto’s Jews stood up for themselves.

If not now, when?

Ya' know, I've got the sneaking suspicion that somewhere in Canada a mid-level bureaucrat is formulating a plan for cutting 6 pointed stars out of yellow cloth. For their own good of course...

Yes. And just as in the 1930s it will be done in the name of public order, public health and human rights. We have learned nothing.
