Words fail me… i spent much of yesterday and the night before trying to write, but nothing measured up to the horror of the Quebec City massacre, where a young far-rightist shot up a mosque, killing six and wounding many more
i will come back to this, but as things are right now, all i could do was the following; these images can be downloaded from facebook, or here. The text on each image translated as “It wasn’t me who fired — My hands are clean.”
These are politicians and journalists, most but not all from Quebec, who have worked hard to spread Islamophobia here over the past decade or so. This was not an “organic” development, it was nurtured and encouraged, part of several people’s personal agenda, something they did for votes, for money, and occasionally of course out of plain old racist principle.
More will be added, i am sure
