Trudeau at Auschwitz:  The Achilles Heel of Multiculturalism

Jul 12, 2016 — Howard Rotberg

In November of last year, Canada’s new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made a speech in London England, setting out his view of Canada’s values:

“Compassion, acceptance, and trust; diversity and inclusion—these are the things that have made Canada strong and free”, he noted, and continued:  “We have a responsibility—to ourselves and to the world—to show that inclusive diversity is a strength, and a force that can vanquish intolerance, radicalism and hate.”

Trudeau, then, emphasizes something he calls “inclusive diversity”.  His father, former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, was responsible for the concept of multiculturalism finding its way into Section 27 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms in 1982.  This section of the Charter was part of a range of provisions that helps determine how rights in other sections of the Charter should be interpreted and applied by the courts. It is believed that section 27 “officially recognized” a Canadian value, namely multiculturalism.

The Complicity of Obama and Clinton in Denying the Islamist War Against the West

Jun 16, 2016 — Howard Rotberg

9/11 in my opinion was a clear declaration of the Islamist war against America.  Since that time we have witnessed Islamist attacks, most recently in Orlando and San Bernardino, but also at Fort Hood (against the American military!), the Boston Marathon, and the Seattle Jewish Federation.  Those commentators who seek to minimize the continuing danger of more Islamist attacks by citing other non-Muslim mass murders are being, I believe, disingenuous, as one cannot win one war by saying we are losing another war.  That is surrender.

Around the world Islamists have murdered in Paris, Brussels, Madrid, London and throughout Scandanavia and Germany where the attacks take the form of sexual assault against non-Muslim women.  In fact all over the world, where Muslims live with non-Muslims, there are constant attacks in places as diverse as the Philippines, Nigeria, Russia, and of course, Israel.

Tolerism of Refugees’ Rape Culture

Oct 11, 2015 — Howard Rotberg

In my recent book, Tolerism:  The Ideology Revealed (Mantua Books, Second Edition), I write about how, for a variety of reasons, Western elites have come up with the bizarre ideology that their highest value is tolerance, even when those being tolerated are themselves intolerant illiberals who, if given power, would surely end all tolerance and most liberty.

I argue that cultural relativism, or the idea that all cultures are equal, in the name of anti-racism, has subverted western biblical values based on Justice and Righteousness, and substituted a tolerance of the intolerant, which I call the ideology of Tolerism.

Professors and journalists who profess this tolerism, evidence a self-hatred of Western liberties, a refusal to study real negative cultural differences, and the embrace of the doctrine of Multiculturalism, which Professor Salim Mansur of Western has aptly called a “Delectable Lie” in his liberal repudiation of this ideology ‚Äì which often dismisses our historical individual rights in favour of some concept of “group rights”.

The mis-use of words in the war against the Jews

Jun 1, 2011 — Howard Rotberg

The main front in the War against the Jews is, of course, in Israel.  Notwithstanding that the Jews have more claim, right and entitlement to their lands than any North American or South American regime and various European and Asian countries, words and symbols have been enlisted to override the complex historical and legal arguments.  The Israelis supposedly are “occupiers”.  One Canadian leftist politician even told an interviewer that the Occupation started in 1948!  (The word “occupation” is based on the argument that Israel alone among the nations of the world cannot keep land won in a defensive war against genocidal enemies, which is being held pending peace talks which Israel has always agreed would determine “secure and recognized” borders.)

The Failure to tell Right from Wrong: The Possible Collapse of Western Civilization

Mar 25, 2011 — Howard Rotberg

I am convinced that Western liberal democratic civilization will fall, not because of conquest from outside it, but because its citizenry has ceased understanding right from wrong.

Cultural and moral relativism, political correctness and moral equivalency are the signs that our intellectual elites, in universities and media, predominantly, are confused over the most elementary questions of right versus wrong.
