Canada police kill ‘radicalized’ driver after he rams two soldiers

A man who ran down two Canadian soldiers in his car at a Quebec mall on Monday and was later shot dead by police, “had become radicalized,” the Canadian government said.
The Canadian government did not specify what it meant by radicalized but in the past has used the term to refer to Canadians who become supporters of militant Islamic groups.
Quebec police shot and killed the 25-year-old driver after a police chase following the incident. One of the two soldiers he ran over had life-threatening injuries. Police did not say whether the soldiers were in uniform.
"The individual who struck the two (Canadian Armed Forces) members with his car is known to federal authorities, including the Integrated National Security Enforcement Team," said a statement from Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s office.
"Federal authorities have confirmed that there are clear indications that the individual had become radicalized."
The incident took place in the town of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, around 40 km (25 miles) southeast of Montreal.
After the collision the driver sped off and was chased by police. He soon lost control of the car, which landed in a ditch, and was shot after confronting officers.
Earlier in the day, Randy Hoback, a member of Parliament for the ruling Conservative Party, referred in the House of Commons to unconfirmed reports of “a possible terror attack against two members of the Canadian armed forces.”
At the time, Harper said the reports were “extremely troubling” but declined to give more details.
A spokesman for the Surete du Quebec, the provincial police, pressed as to whether the victims had been specially targeted, said that was one of several possible hypotheses but stressed it would take the police days to work out what had happened.
Canada is sending six fighter jets to take part in the U.S.-led campaign against Islamic State militants in Iraq.

The two injured soldiers were not students at a military college which is located in the town, said a spokesman for the college.

Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman-Hughes, 1972 and 2014

Both by Dan Bagan

Wanna see my cry like a baby? Ask me who these women were.

Hughes’ father was beaten nearly to death by the KKK when she was a kid, and what does she do? Become an activist to try and stop that from happening to other people. She raised money to bail civil rights protesters out of jail. She helped women get out of abusive situations by providing shelter for them until they got on their feet. She founded an agency that helped women get to work without having to leave their children alone, because childcare in the 1970s? Not really a thing. In fact, a famous feminist line in the 70s was “every housewife is one man away from welfare.”

Then she teamed up with Steinman to found the Women’s Action Alliance, which created the first battered women’s shelters in history. They attacked women’s rights issues through boots on the ground activism, problem solving, and communication. They stomped over barriers of race and class to meet women where they were: mostly mothers who wanted better for themselves and their children.

These are women are who I always wanted to be.

blvedesrts asked:
how can i feel more confident and deserving of love? and actually believe that a man is attracted to me (inside and out) without worrying about it?

feministdisney:

Sorry, so sorry I left some of these off for so long (and will keep doing so since I am not often on Tumblr, but). 

Let us see… for this one, I am feeling the movieeeee… Aladdin (sorry if I used this one before, I don’t think I did? But I can’t remember).

I could be wrong, since your explanation was pretty brief and I have to fill in the blanks here, but when I think of your issue and worries, I definitely think of Aladdin and his struggle with confidence, feeling deserving of love, and believing that Jasmine could be attracted to him for who he was, inside and out (not sure how you identify, but her being a woman is not important for this point). He worried about all this for most of the movie and went to great lengths to try and fix it — albeit the wrong way.

Although there’s probably no real “right” and “wrong” as you grow into yourself — it’s all a learning process — I would say it overall takes a lot longer if you go the route of trying to reach these things externally. Not to be the most generic advice ever, but it’s really very hard to believe other people can love you if you doubt your own inherent value. 

Aladdin connects with Jasmine, and Jasmine likes him, not because of the Genie’s help or his prince-act or any of that, but right in the beginning, when he acts genuinely without really second guessing himself.

I would say that in the movie, Aladdin gained his confidence and believed his value not by accumulating wealth or by acting like a prince, but by making choices. Often, hard choices. But choices made him realize what type of person he was, and that he did deserve love (for who he was). I think that a lot of the confidence you are looking for might come from making these types of choices - who to give your time to, who deserves your time, who is worthy of your love/meant for it. Not everyone is, and that’s an important thing to remember, especially when you feel like you are breaking.

Genie: All right, sparky, here’s the deal. If you wanna court the little lady, you gotta be a straight shooter. Do you got it?

Aladdin: What?

Genie: [pointing to each word on a blackboard] Tell her the truth!

As far as believing when other people recognize your inner/outer beauty, I think it comes down to just recognizing truth, and believing it, and not second guessing it based on what everyone tells you (or what your doubting nature inside, tells you). If someone sees the value in you, why second-guess that? Life is too short.

Sorry if this advice is boring for most people but hopefully, helpful for a few :p and please no more Disney advice requests, at least until I get around to old ones 100%.
