Rally in Toronto For Denmark 1

I am just back from the wonderful rally to support Denmark over the controversial cartoon organized by Daniel and Nav

The rally was held in front of the Danish Consulate in Toronto and many people from different backgrounds joined us to voice their concern regarding the threat of Islamo-fascism to our civilized values.

It was heart-warming to see people who think like you do because in this left wing city, it is almost hard to find a true right winger.

Media outlets such as CBC , 680 News Radio and Global TV were present to cover the rally as well.

But Winston you must understand that there were many left-wingers at the protest, including comrades from the Worker-communist Party of Iran.

I know and that was good. Wasn't it?

However I didn't join them when they were mixed with Anti-Israeli people at the other rally!

Hi anonymous,

Left and right, we are all human... We can have common points. As long as one doesn't take others freedom and rights away, they should be able to coexis in a healty humanistic society.

Until that day, I won't like to have a label on my political direction (if it exist) just for that reason....

Rallys like this are meant to shame the "Western" left who hate Bush more than they love freedom. Let the Iranian commies join the rally. I hope they and other political stripes have a say in Iran someday.

Great work Winston! Some people seem to miss the point of these rallies - the idea is that regardless of politics or religion, one should be able to speak one's mind without fear of violence.

Far better to have a rally in favour of free speech where everyone is arguing with everyone else, than a rally of those only on the right or the left I say...

I just love it when I hear about anti-Israeli fanatics using a vehicle like International Womens Day or Gay Pride to attack the most egalitarian, tolerant society in the middle east. These morons should be packed off to the Islamic Republic for a nice long stay at the mullahs' favourite hotel for political dissidents.

As for the Iranian communists, I listened to a immigrant from Romania tear a strip off of them for daring to pretend that they are defenders of freedom of speech and handing out their propaganda. I took a quick look and was sickened by it too. Among other things, they defended nukes for Iran and claimed that the Communists were being persecuted for speaking out against the regime. Naturally, they said nothing about the war they have tried to wage from the other side of the Iraqi/Iranian border.

This is the continual bullshit from the radical right. The cartoon nonsense is a fully backed Arab faith-based initiative, not at all that different from the bribes paid by the Bush folks to buy the vote of black pregnant women required to attend Church for the subsidy.

The Saudi Wahhabis are responsible for all this insanity and death.

If the West had any real common sense, the advice of the Rand Corporation should be followed: Capture Mecca and make the bastards behave.

Joeseo :

LOL. What a post! LoL.

What the f##K does this mean " not at all that different from the bribes paid by the Bush folks to buy the vote of black pregnant women required to attend Church for the subsidy", and what does it have to do with freedom of speech?
And what does the Rand corporation have to do with freedom of speech?
I think your tin hat is on a little too tight.

The wahhabis are bad news. You got that right.

Anyone familiar with the Worker-Communists would know they have no respect for any of the Stalinist regimes that marred Eastern Europe during the second half of the 20th century. Hence the "Worker-" part of the name, to distance them from traditional communist movements.

I am 28 years old and from New Jersey and I attended the New York rally on March 3rd. While I am happy about Pro Denmark fever spreading to Toronto, I can't help but wonder what is a huge Cuban flag doing there? I went to the rally in New York and handed out Italian, Norwegian and Danish flags in support of all nations who had consulates and embassies torched by these people. Where were all the Italian Torontonians your city is so famous for? All these right wingers and left wingers and communists, I just don't get it. It was the same in New York, what if you weeded out all the people who were there to voice things that have nothing to do with Denmark? I am far from a professional activist, but I took a personal day from work to support one cause, a cause that I beleieve in, the cause that the rally was intended for. Am I wrong? Post a note telling me so if that's what you think, I will check back to see what someone else's thoughts are.

Well, I guess if you read here you will get your answer too

Winston, how can you be: "a Canadian based Pro-America Iranian neo-conservative, seeking a democratic regime change in Iran! Winston is also a supporter of the Global War on Terror and President Bush's policies."

And your #1 favorite book is "1984".

It just makes no sense.
