Please please please please get it folks. These are not the acts of bullied men. These are the acts of white nationalism. These are the acts of (usually men) bigots intensely set up with the idea that somehow their interpretation of the way life should be is under threat. These men are generally white, with a supreme idealogical viewpoint of the supremacy of maintaining the status quo of white Christian male domination and supremacy. They are racists. They are anti-immigrant. They are religiously intolerant. They are homophobic. They are anti-feminist. For God's sake stop calling these one-off events committed by delusional lunatics. Stop using bullying as an excuse. Call it what these are - acts of terrorism. And stand up against the American President's own racist Islamaphobic behaviour which has encouraged such disgusting viewpoints and can be directly linked to the rise in such thinking. He is responsible for making thinking this way acceptable. This is not acceptable. Remember, he called the marching far right-wing conservative white-supremists 'good people'. Don't accept this.

The Islamic Mosques in this province (Saskatchewan) and elsewhere across my country have opened their doors this week to the public. What a fabulous opportunity to meet your neighbours, stand in solidarity with them against hatred, and learn a little about your fellow brothers and sisters in this world. This is but one start to end domestic terrorism.
