Terry Glavin: The World Social Forum Is "The Left's Depraved Sideshow"

Actually, when you consider the lineup of its mainstream patrons (including the province of Quebec and city of Montreal), it's more of a main event. Glavin gets it right, though, when he says that "the lineup reads like a who's who of Jew haters and despot supporters."

Many of whom, no surprise, can be comfortably situated in both categories:
It took a cartoon appearing in the World Social Forum program in Montreal this week that could have come straight from the pages of Julius Streicher’s Nazi propaganda tabloid Der Stürmer to provide a fleeting glimpse into just how deeply the rot has spread. It featured a hook-nosed Jew vomiting a caricature of Uncle Sam, who’s disgorging a long-bearded jihadist. 
Put to the crude Khomeinist propaganda purpose of attributing the Wahhabi-inspired terrorism afflicting the Middle East at the moment to the United States and Israel — a lunatic conspiracy theory that enjoys generous toleration among Canada’s self-described “anti-imperialist” activists — it should tell you something that the World Social Forum’s animateurs did not notice anything untoward about the cartoon until it became the subject of a public uproar. 
That is how far the “anti-globalization” movement has fallen since the World Social Forum’s first annual gathering in Porto Alegre, Brazil, in 2001. Conceived as an altruistic alternative to the neo-liberalism of the World Economic Forum convened annually in Davos, Switzerland, the World Social Forum is now as pleased to draw unambiguously fascist tendencies to its bosom as it is to facilitate note-swapping among vegans who have quarrels with Monsanto’s genetically modified food experiments...
I attribute the movement's downfall in large part to the pervasive and corrosive Israel hate.

Update: Poor WSF organizers. They're so gosh darn "frustrated":
MONTREAL — Canada's reputation as an open society risks being tarnished after many invitees to the World Social Forum 2016 in Montreal had their visitor visa application denied by the government, organizers said Monday.  
Twenty-four hours before the beginning of the international event, conference co-coordinator Raphael Canet told reporters the number of people denied entry to Canada hasn't changed much since he raised the issue a week ago.  
Canet said he sent 2,000 letters of inquiry to conference invitees asking about their travel plans and 70 per cent of the 315 people who replied said their visa application had been rejected by the Canadian government.  
Co-organizer Carminda MacLorin said Canada's reputation as a free and open society will be "tainted" if there are fewer people at this year's conference.  
The majority of the people denied entry visas are from Africa, and many are from Latin America, organizers said.  
Immigration Canada blamed conference officials and said rules for visitor visas need to be followed rigorously, while the event's directors said they did all they could to facilitate the visa process. ...
One can only imagine what sort of Jew hater and despot supporter didn't pass muster.
