I have the right to say what I like...especially when I am offended

Unbelivable, these people think that by putting the word "islamophobia" in a law it becomes a crime?
That sounds like an invitation to challenge it, just by underlining the inadequate vocabulary used. We would have to go back to basics, dictionary.
But, yeah, I am on my turf, I help you with shelter, food, security and all liberties. I even provide you with a space where you can gather with your same culture brothers and sisters. And it still ain't enough? But there are limits on these liberties. And where yours stop, mine begin.
So, I am offended, when my dictionary is being redefined, and I am being told that I cannot express my discord, or oppose any decisions taken without asking me what my position is, and affects my future and my children's future.
I will ask permission from no body in order to hold on to my cultural values and the possibility to give it on to future generations. I am proud of my heritage, values and beliefs, and as equal citizen, the right to defend them is protected by same law.
And if that becomes a concern, which by the way, with this new censorship law, the concern is rising, it becomes a duty to oppose it publicly.
So yeah, Islam, this ideology, doctrine, (no way can it be considered a religion at this stage) since its mixing government and faith, is a real, documented problem, in many areas of the world. Europe is the best example, and threats have been made to America, Canada, ..the whole West...so it is normal to become alert, aware, take necessary measures to avoid what was promised.
So it is not a "phobia", since by definition, it is not unjustified, nor irrational fear. Nothing irrational about being informed, and seeing same kinda ways and techniques in display, that Europeans heard, and fell for.
Anytime, I am ready to challenge any accusation from anybody on this matter.
So it is not Muslims that I have a problem with. It is the ideology and indoctrination of people, by the Qur'an.
So yeah, time to be offended Canada! This mind of behaviour is dangerous, just by creating a precedent.
This kind of censorship is anticonstitutionnal, does Not match with the image and reputation of this Canada!
