Charged for insulting Mohammed a decade ago “as if we had sharia law” — and it’s getting worse

David MenziesMission Specialist

Journalist Kevin J. Johnston is just the latest commentator criminally charged for exercising his right to free speech. 

Meet Bob Chalmers, another Canadian who was similarly charged for uttering "hateful" statements a decade ago.

“Hateful” in that apparently an uber-sensitive Muslim’s feelings were hurt after Chalmers made less than flattering comments about Islam.

Imagine that.

Watch as I speak with Bob about the war on free speech.

You’re doing god’s work here and we love you for it. But for Chr**t’s sake’s man … could you not pronounce Kevin’s last name correctly? There is a “T” in there after the “S”. It’s Kevin J. JohnsTon. That’s the way HE pronounces it, that’s the way he wants it pronounced (he has made this point ad nauseam in many of his videos referring to others butchering it).
Show your boy some respect and GET IT RIGHT.

Janice Kay —I have a problem with Haitian Economic Migrants, as all they want is our Welfare-Health -care services but they don’t want to work for it.
Trump announced a new Immigration Reform today, No Welfare for Immigrants. That is the way it should be.
As someone said below, half are criminals, many pick-pockets, however they are better than Trudeau’s regular picks.

Krispy Larue, I’m worried about the numbers as well. This is not sustainable. If we had a government which considers illegal migrants a problem worth addressing; it would work with the US government and ICE agents to stop them from making it across the border; arrest them for attempting to leave the US and enter Canada illegally. ICE could detain, and determine if they are illegally in the US …. if they have temporary residency, then ICE should load them on buses and return them to the State they last had a residence. Canadian government can share in the cost of doing this.

Janice Kay…

I get that, but it’s the numbers that are worrying. MORE THAN 500 crossed on Tuesday alone at the Lacolle Qc-NY border.

There is no war going on in Haiti so as far as I’m concerned they ALL must be returned.

Now why does this all sound familiar? Oh yeah, because last year the Athens Olympic venue was used to house migrants from Turkey. They’re all gone now but left the stadium in tatters.

I wish we could reply to comments. This comment is to Drew WaKariuk – you said that if you ever went to jail for speaking freely, the left will not like you when you get out.

Drew, you are missing the fact that the left does not like you now.

Krispy LaRue, I don’t have a problem with Haitian asylum seekers; they’re Christians and we need as many Christians as we can get.

I saw this a few minutes ago. I think the numbers being reported from Jan – June are low. Very low.
commented 2017-08-02 16:52:48 -0400
An alarming situation is developing in Montreal. The Olympic stadium is being converted into a refugee center to accommodate the overflow of asylum seekers from the USA.

This is not a joke. Here’s the links:

Two busloads arrived today full of Haitian migrants, some pregnant. 58,000 may be deported from the USA, so they are heading to Canada.

Desperate border guards have requested help from Ottawa. No response.

Thanks Justin you reckless fool.

It’ll take 20 years, if ever, to undo all the damage this assh*le is causing to Canada.

There are mathematical ways to examine text for “hate speech”. This one strangely only looks for hate speech against Muslims by outsiders. By using a narrow and specific search targeting "right wing populism parties and

extremist organizations." Which are largely made up out of whole cloth. They of course do not search for typical hate speech from Muslims. This study from Pakistan does measure Hate Speech targeted at non majority Muslims.

“An increasing number of instances of radicalized, xenophobic,
racist and sexist discourse with threats of harassment and/
or violence have been seen in local cyberspace, with targets ranging
from religious groups and minorities such as Shias, Ahmadis, Hindus
and Christians, to local ethnic groups, women, homosexuals, hatred
of Americans, Jews, Indians, and Afghans among others.” Ironic how the left in the West are completely blind to any and all “Hate Speech” that comes from Muslims… There is a scientific method to determine what is and is not hate speech.

Most of what is done in the west is slanted to find anti Islamic speech while ignoring the reverse. This is done by carefully choosing what words you search for.

Krispy, I was at a free speech march on Parliament Hill June 3, and, saw a placard which read,
“Islamophobia is knowing more than you should about Islam & Mohammad”

Calling for the genocide of Jews is a HATE CRIME, all of the quotes below are HATE CRIMES.

“I wonder why Mohamed was given favoured status.” Simple, the Left wants to destroy Western Industrial Society. Feminism, Abortion, Class Warfare, LGBQ2MMOLGWTFPAWNINGNEEBS… Ect is not getting it done fast enough so will be thrown under the bus in favor of the preferred vehicle.

“Because the left believes that the quickest way to destroy Western civilization is no longer class warfare but multicultural warfare: Simply ally with groups that hate the prevailing system and work with them to take it down. Then, the left will build on the ashes of the old system.” Failing to understand that they(the Left) will no longer be the ones “driving” the bus.

Islamic terrorists and their enablers like Justin “bin – Zoolander” Trudeau now control Canada ….. There needs to be a revolution and the bastards need to be destroyed to get our country back….thank god for Alberta….. Maybe we should separate from the sewer of Ottawa and it’s treasonous elites or invite Trump in to clean house

I’m not “Islamophobic”, and to prove it, I’m quoting a few lines from the Koran!

– (2:191) Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them.
– (3:28) Muslims must not take the infidels as friends.
– (3:85) Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable.
– (5:33) Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam.
– (8:12) Terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Quran.
– (8:65) The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them.
– (9:5) When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them.
– (9:28) The infidels are unclean; do not let them into a mosque.
– (9:29) Kill the Jews and the Christians if they do not convert to Islam or refuse to pay Jizya tax.
– (9:30) The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them.
– (9:123) Make war on the infidels living in your neighbourhood.
– (22:19) Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water;
melt their skin and bellies.
– (47:4) Do not hanker for peace with the infidels; behead them when you catch them.

Now, should (or would) I be arrested or charged with a crime for taking quotes out of the Koran? M-103 is coming folks. Open to any interpretation anyone wants.

Truth is no defence, nor is opinion or truth.

As the profit down the road with the sign calls out, “The end is nigh.”

Alberta, make sure you stay in this country until they get rid of you.
commented 2017-08-02 15:07:44 -0400
Government censorship will increase and more people in Canada will be charged under the current blasphemy law, like Kevin Johnston & Bob Chalmers. When legislation resulting from M-103 is enacted, there will be more arrests.
The Liberal government is a puppet for the UN
Islamic states pushing for ‘global blasphemy law’

A resolution pending in the United Nations in one form or another since 1999 is being pushed again by the Islamic nations that originally proposed the plan they called “Defamation of Islam,” which would ban criticism of the beliefs of Muhammad worldwide.
The proposal, sought by the 57 members of the Organization of the Islamic Conference, now has been renamed “Defamation of Religions” Omar Alghabra recently attended Organization of Islamic Cooperation on the Ivory Coast.

How is it that Islam cannot tolerate criticism, it goes back to Mohammad. When his own followers pointed out the contradictions and wanted to question him; he forbade it. Then, comes another verse which deals with questionable muslims, “hypocrites” as he called them. Another death edict for those Mohammad hated.

I wonder why Mohamed was given favoured status. I have heard many uses of Jesus name and derivives of it in both TV movies and in the theatre and I don’t think anyone has ever been charged over it. So why is Mohamed given the preferential treatment?
commented 2017-08-02 13:49:18 -0400
Khalid and Alghabra should have been told in no uncertain terms that if they want Sharia law, they can go back to Pakistan, Saudi Arabia or wherever they came from. Sharia law doesn’t belong in the West and anyone who has escaped from places like Iran, Saudi Arabia, or the other Muslim countries will tell you as much.
commented 2017-08-02 13:34:27 -0400
What’s happened to Kevin J. Johnston is absurd. David got a great interview there which we all need to heed. We need to win each battle to win this war on words. Freedom of Speech for all.

M103 shove it turdo.
Another case of exploiting money from Canadians by court extortion.
How far would a case like this get in an islamic country, nowhere.
