Gay activists have met their match with Muslim barbers
Toronto Sun ^ | 3/2/14 | Ezra Levant

Posted on 03/02/2014 10:44:42 PM PST by Impala64ssa

So a lesbian walks into a Muslim barbershop, and asks for a “businessmen’s haircut”.

It sounds like the beginning of a joke, but it really happened, and now a government agency called the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario will hear her complaint.

Faith McGregor is the lesbian who doesn’t like the girly cuts that they do at a salon. She wants the boy’s hairdo.

Omar Mahrouk is the owner of the Terminal Barber Shop in Toronto. He follows Shariah law, so he thinks women have cooties. As Mahrouk and the other barbers there say, they don’t believe in touching women other than their own wives.

But that’s what multiculturalism and unlimited immigration from illiberal countries means. A central pillar of many immigrant cultures is the second-class citizenship of women and gays.

So if we now believe in multiculturalism, and that our Canadian culture of tolerance isn’t any better than the Shariah culture of sex crimes and gender apartheid, who are we to complain when Omar Mahrouk takes us up on our promise that he can continue to practise his culture — lesbian haircuts be damned?

He’s not the one who passed the Multiculturalism Act, and invited in hundreds of thousands of immigrants with medieval attitudes towards women and gays and Jews, etc. We did.

Mahrouk’s view is illiberal. But in Canada we believe in property rights and freedom of association — and in this case, freedom of religion, too.

But McGregor ran to the Human Rights Tribunal and demanded that Mahrouk give her a haircut.

In the past, human rights commissions have been a great ally to gay activists. Because, traditionally, gay activists have complained against Christians. And white Christians are the one ethnic identity group that human rights commissions don’t value, and that multiculturalism doesn’t include.

Doesn’t the bich realize that barbers have very sharp razors, hate women and kill homosexuals.

They would love to slash her throat.

Ha! What a conundrum for the libs.

Kind of like when I had a liberal client ask me how I felt about a logging clear-cut behind our little town, (she thought it was ugly, and “how could we allow it to happen?!)

My answer disappointed her, “the land is owned by the Indians”

Ruined her day, that the noble keeper of the land would actually clear-cut log!

I keep wanting to do a “March Madness” style bracket for leftist protected groups to see who would end up number one. Unfortunately it looks like that has been bypassed as the number one seed, Muslims, are already playing the number two seed, homosexuals.

It will all come down to which of these protected classes is deemed most antithetical to traditional, Western culture. That is the one that the leftists will champion.

That must be the only barbershop in town otherwise she would have gone elsewhere to get her haircut. Like a normal person would. This is about forcing others to her will.

I tend to agree. It’s not unlike some of the bakery-wedding cake stories we’ve seen here in the U.S. We always hear that, despite the owner’s views and values being well-known and established, the gay customer is *always* “stunned and shocked” that they were refused a wedding cake because of the owner’s traditional values.

I’d lay good money that most, if not all, of those cases were set-ups intended to create test cases for the courts. I would also not be surprised if this barbershop incident is a similar matter.

Nope, she doesn’t.
She’s acting like a spoiled brat who always gets their way and finally being confronted with a situation where she doesn’t get her way.

A lot of homosexuals have mile wide chips on their shoulders.
They are needlessly confrontational, and are absolutely convinced of their invincibility.
They absolutely believe great momma gubmint will save them from all discomfort.

So she isn’t thinking at all, she’s merely stomping her feet, holding her breath, and hoping momma gubmit will pat her head and give her what she wants.

Usually, when someone doesn’t serve you, you go elsewhere.

Does this mean that if I were to hit on a woman, and she ignores me, I can sue her for discrimination because I’m part Puerto Rican?

You are correct. There are a great many things about homosexuals which bewilder me. One is compelling people who dislike them to associate with them.

It would be nice if the homos and muslims would just cancel out each other, but this ain’t likely, because islam is stronger.

The one nice thing about islam is how it sh!ts on the politically correct. I would have no problem when islam destroys the homos, their media, and all the pro-homo heteros.

I love seeing lefties like Barbara Hall having their heads explode when they have to sort out who is more oppressed of two proctected classes. What Ezra did not mention is that the Premier of Ontario is a lesbian. Commissioner Hall has to be aware that a wrong decision may result in her Human Rights Commision facing a Provincial government review. You have to love the law of unintended consequences!

I have another question to ask about Muslim barber shops. Actually, I'm talking about a barber college that is owned by a Muslim, though apparently a very secular Muslim. It may be even that the owner is an Arab.

Though the college concentrates on training Muslim barbers, he also has a smattering of Mexican/Hispanic students, both male and female, and occasionally, a Caucasian student as well.
Is it unreasonable to think that the barber college may be training assassins who would be able to ply their trade out in the open, but also able to harm customers of all races.

Or were just all the cabbie jobs taken when this guy hit town, so he decided to get in on the commercial trade school business?

If I were a gay activist, I’d probably want to declare victory and shut down these human rights commissions right now. In five years time, it won’t be gay activists forcing themselves into Christian B&Bs. It’ll be Muslim activists vetoing the gay pride parade.

This would be proof that every cloud has a silver lining.

about the outcome......

I am betting it might have been something like this:
“many Shiite Muslims believe that a section called “Al Nissa” contains a single word ( istimta) that seems to allow Muslims to engage in Mut’ah marriages, or “pleasure marriages”—essentially, temporary marriages”

Maybe the barber did a temporary one-hour marriage so he could do the haircut??????

Gotta love it.

As for needing to go to a barber for a guy’s cut, I call baloney. I am a woman, and I happen to know that most hair salons can accommodate both male and female. As a matter of fact, I have been in the beauty salon in my small town when women have come in for a manly cut.

Ghastly, IMO. Sure, it is a lot easier to take care of, but why would a normal woman want to look like a man?

I am surprised we haven’t seen more incidents between gays and Muslims in US —media is probably covering it up —as they do everything else. There is a gay local paper in NYC and when I last looked at it about 4-5 years ago it did cover Muslim persecution of gays in Mid East, but most gays follow liberal line even when opposed to their interest.

Some friends and I were discussing the larger question of conscience rights yesterday, and one of the least incisive thinkers started to blame it all on those who want a “secular society.” She had it exactly backwards. Public life needs to be secular in order to be as fair as possible to everyone. We can’t have public recognition of religion for me but not for thee.

Those who are familiar with what I have written on FR over the years (just passed my 14th anniversary) know that I have been saying this for a long time, much to the discomfort of many on this forum. I am not an atheist. On the contrary, a devout Christian. But I see that we cannot let the country devolve into “I won’t bake your cake” and “I won’t cut your hair.” We can’t go back to segregated lunch counters either. We already fought this battle.

The only other alternative is for people to form completely private communities that are large enough to sustain businesses. That will take a while, but I don’t see any other way.
