Self-Parody as Strategy?

This video demonstrates only too well the pile of ignorance that is driving support for the Charter of Xenophobia.  Turns out that people take their shoes off inside a mosque.  What is so very funny about this is that I have long joked about the Canadian custom--that one takes off their shoes upon entering a house up here.  Of course, it is a practical thing given the slush/snow/ice/mud that is present on our feet for 7-8 months of the year, but to have a Quebecker suggest some shock at shoe removal?  Gasp!

Anyhow, I am pretty sure Global TV highlighted this video to mock the proceedings.  Maybe not, but the women discussing her shocking trip to Morocco and what it revealed about Islam and Muslims does a pretty good job on its own of showing that the folks who are most upset are pretty damned ignorant and complaining about a non-problem. 

Maybe she is a spy working for the other side? 

H/T to JTL for highlighting this on twitter.
