Canada has strict laws when it comes to hate crimes (see Believe in Biology? Canada to Sentence ‘Anti-Trans’ Speakers to Prison…). They don’t hate crime in general – like bestiality or child molestation – they just hate… hate crimes. Don’t worry, it’s not supposed to make sense.
We’re talking about a country fixated on throwing people in jail for words. Pair mean words with mean actions and you’ve got a serious offense on your hands. Well, usually. Unless those mean words and mean actions don’t fit their narrative. That’s why this ruling is doubly retarded. A native lady attacked a white woman because she was white. Sounds like a rather standard hate crime, right? …Right?
[Lydia] White was outside Jaimieson’s pub… with a friend when an acquaintance of Crowchief’s approached and asked for, and was given, a cigarette. As White and her male friend spoke to that woman, Crowchief approached and, without warning, yelled “I hate white people” and punched her in the face, knocking out a tooth. During her arrest, Crowchief told police “the white man was out to get her.”
“The offender said, ‘I hate white people’ and threw a punch,” [The judge] said in his ruling. “There is no evidence either way about what the offender meant or whether… she holds or promotes an ideology which would explain why this assault was aimed at this victim,” he said. “I am not satisfied beyond a doubt that this offence was, even in part, motivated by racial bias.”
Let us recap: a woman gives a stranger a cigarette. Said stranger’s friend walks up, yells “I hate white people,” and punches her in the face. Because she’s white. Pretty straightforward. Except Canada’s legal system doesn’t see it that way. Maybe Lydia White and all the witnesses misheard what Crowchief said. See, she could have really meant “I hate [Lydia] White, people!” That’s a possibility worth entertaining. There’s no way to be sure… So says this judge.
Look, we already know that if the situation were reversed things would have turned out much differently. If a white person screamed “I hate brown people!” and attacked this native lady… Well, there wouldn’t have been much of a trial to speak of. It’d immediately be labeled a hate crime. This is further proof that Canada sucks. They’ve bought into leftist “progressivism,” AKA actual dirty diaper garbage, which clearly states that white people are always the perpetrators. Never the victims (see Nat’l Education Association to White Teachers: You’re ALL Racist). This is just one of the many ways leftism manifests itself legally. Innocent people get screwed. You know, for equality. Or political correctness. Or progress. Take your pick.
