…But controlling a mob isn’t something you can really predict.
What’s the Saskatchewan Premier doing releasing an open letter to the Prime Minister calling for a “pause” and “delay” to refugee settlement? He’s equating terrorism in France with Syrian refugees on their way to live in Saskatchewan. That’s a terrible, and Islamophobic position to take.
The Premier emboldened people to take out anger for the Paris Attacks against innocent Muslim people.
And talk radio’s Conservative stalwart Gormley tweeted that chanting Muslims in North America should be shot. He retracted and apologized for the ridiculously violent comment that encouraged a mob to “shoot” Muslims.
Maybe whipping up this Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt, won’t play in their favour this time?
A petition is circulating to remove Gormley from the air. I think he should just give up his newspaper column, since he’s obviously too volatile to be writing for a provincial newspaper.
