Storm Track Appeasement: Defending Our Culture? How unPC of You!

It didn't take long to happen.

When the town council of Hérouxville in Quebec issued a set of wide-ranging rules for immigrants considering moving there - including bans on beating or burning women alive, veiling one's face and children carrying symbolic weapons to school - the appeasers and apologists, flying under the flag of multiculturalism and political correctness, went ballistic.

Organizations representing minorities are outraged by a Quebec town's “standards” for newcomers, calling them insulting and xenophobic……“It is totally distasteful to see someone using this kind of writing and putting it in a public domain, and this is not just an ordinary someone, these are people in authority,” said Salam Elmenyawi, president of the Muslim Council of Montreal.

Yep, bans on beating or burning women alive, veiling one's face and children carrying symbolic weapons to school – very distasteful.

Critics urged Quebec Premier Jean Charest — who called the standards an “isolated case” earlier this week — to strongly denounce the town officials. They also want the mayor and councillors to apologize and retract the document.

Does the word ‘apologist’ ring a bell, Mr. Charest?

“It tries to make a mockery of this whole debate about reasonable accommodation, and it tries to say that these are our rules and if you don't like them, don't come here,” said Steven Slimovitch, national legal counsel for B'nai Brith Canada. “The whole tone of the document, and it says so quite clearly, is that this is the law of the strong.”

Oh really?

Hi WC! How did you manage to get back posting?

The town council members of Hérouxville are simply giants! All the more so when compared to the PC dwarves who criticize them. Did you see their Publication of Standards? (PDF file; Hat tip: The American Thinker) It's just awesome to read. People who know and value their culture and insist that all guests respect it--something that, judging from the geographical magazines, only Westerners are obliged to do toward non-Westerners.

To tell you the truth, I really don't know what's going on.

I just logged into my gmail account, clicked on "all my services", clicked on the blog link, which logged me automactically into my blog, posted to my blog, logged out, the old log in screen came up, logged into my alternative account - and it took it.

Who knows? I guess the Google Nazis served me soup today.

I'll try and ask for soup tomorrow.

BTW: Thanks for the link. I'll look at it.

I have read Herouxville's code of standards and find it to be very reasonable (from the point of view of a secular Easterner anyway). There is nothing extreme in it and there is nothing I would disagree with. The critics are barking up the wrong tree.

Barking is correct.
