Canadian journalist charged for criticizing Islam. Is The Rebel next?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Tonight, I’ll start by showing you a clip of Canadian TV pundit Ian Capstick, saying he wants to ban Islam.

Now, I’m not sure how you ban a religion. But even for suggesting that, his CBC colleagues laughed at him. Capstick even poked fun at himself, saying he sounded like me.

Of course, nothing came of it.

Capstick is a a gay NDP activist,and the CBC is the state broadcaster. No human rights complaint. Certainly no hate speech prosecution…

But yesterday, a guy named Kevin Johnston was charged, not with a human rights offence, but with a “hate motivated” crime under the Criminal Code, based on “information published on various social media sites.”

(These charges were approved by the Attorney General — who just happens to be Yasir Naqvi, a Muslim who immigrated here from Pakistan.)

Johnston is a muckraker. He sees the country changing in intolerable ways. Like the fact that Christian prayers have been banned in public schools, but Muslim prayers are not only allowed, they’re subsidized.

I don’t always agree with Johnston, either on his substance of his style. But he’s mouthy. So what?

I don’t know what the facts are upon which Johnston was charged.

They haven’t been released, and Johnston says a judge ordered him not to discuss it.

But the fact that he wasn’t charged with uttering a threat suggests it was the crime of having the wrong opinions.

I do know this:

They’re coming for Kevin Johnston today. it’ll be us tomorrow, and maybe you the next day.

TONIGHT'S GUESTS: Our own David Menzies has reported on Kevin Johnston before, and joins me to talk about this disturbing case; then Raheem Kassam, Editor-in-Chief of Breitbart London, comes on to talk about his new book, No Go Zones: How Sharia Law Is Coming to a Neighborhood Near You.

Why is not Kevin Johnston talking about rampant crime in predominantly White cities like Grande Prairie?

Grande Prairie in Alberta is Canada’s most dangerous city.

http://www.macleans.ca/news/canada/canada-most-dangerous-cities-2016-safe-your-city/

Muslims account for less than 1% of Grande Prairie residents (search “NHS Profile, Grande Prairie, CY, Alberta, 2011”).

I wonder why we are not talking about White Christians (the majority of Grande Prairie residents) committing crimes in Canada?

Canada is a much safer country today than it was in the 70’s when Canada’s population was overwhelmingly White.

https://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/canadas-crime-rate-drops-with-homicides-at-46-year-low/article13416456/

Ethnically diverse cities like Toronto and Vancouver are considerably safer than predominantly White cities like Grande Prairie and Red Deer.

http://www.macleans.ca/news/canada/canada-most-dangerous-cities-2016-safe-your-city/

According to Statcan:

Grande Prairie: 86% White
Red Deer: 88% White
Toronto: 50% White
Vancouver: 46% White

Is political correctness preventing us from discussing how we can address rampant crime in predominantly White cities like Grande Prairie and keep Canadians safe?

Ezra …without question Trudeau and his Islamic Gestapo will be coming for the Rebel ….they will not let you keep speaking truth as this is an unacceptable problem for them……The Rebel needs to build a big war chest to prepare for the inevitable assault. We need to be prepared on all fronts.

“Why isn’t anyone ending this sharia implementation of our government by charging everyone involved with at least high treason? "
Well, it might have something to do with the fact that our elected government has already been infiltrated with Islam. Eleven in Trudeau’s caucus. It is already past a safe return to sanity. The conservatives have been asleep at the wheel, except for a few who are shouting into the wind. Michelle Rempel and Candice Bergen.
Some serious push back is in order Andrew Scheer. Those who stand in the middle of the road get run over. Do your job!

I agree with you Cathy R…What is the Conservative Party waiting for? This is clearly against the Canadian Laws that exist.

Western civilization and democracy is under a global provocation for war, a war to make the other 2 big ones pale in comparison. The writing is on the wall.

Why isn’t anyone ending this sharia implementation of our government by charging everyone involved with at least high treason? It is an act of political war and treason and therefore the entire liberal government who is implementing it needs to be shut down and arrested and the conservative party needs to take control. If the liberal (islamic) government of Canada isn’t shut down very soon many Canadians (especially non-islamic ) are going to suffer.

Raheem Kassan’s Twitter account has been temporarily suspended, following the announcement of this book.
Breitbart: Remarking on the decision of the micro-blogging platform to suspend his account, Mr Kassam said Wednesday: “It is incredibly conveniently timed for Twitter to suspend my account, after I just announced my book on No Go Zones. It’s almost as if there are people who don’t want the truth about what’s going on in America and Europe to come to light.”

Love Kevin or hate him, his unmasked disgust for what is happening under our very eyes is what many of us feel. He walks the line but I don’t think he has ever crossed it to the point of deserving to get arrested. This is a lynching. The same crap Tommy had to deal with in the UK. I think all of Kevin’s brown supporters, of which there are many, mostly in the Sikh community, would vouch that he is no racist.

The disgust is directed at an ideology that threatens our very way of life in Canada, and Peel Region is feeling the brunt of that right now as they are where sharia push is being tested. Left uncountered it will be in your neighbourhood, local governments and schools. I don’t mean minor accommodation, I mean infiltration of all of our foundational institutions.
There will never be Sharia law in Canada my ass!

I agree Ron Voss, the Wild Bill nonsense at our border was a shameful fiasco and I would like to see the Rebel at least mention it. Wild Bill certainly had some strong words for our border control. When I first came across that video on Youtube in June I was surprised the Rebel didn’t pick up on it. Its not too late.

As far as supporting Johnston is concerned, I think we have a duty to. Lets get all the details first, but then as we did for Tommy Robinson in the UK, we should crowdfund for him. It will be us next, make no mistake.
The new jizya tax. We won’t submit and it’s hard to get away with murder(for now) so they will take our money.
It does look as though Tommy Robinson is being harassed and arrested less now that they know the world is watching. We need to make that happen in this case with Kevin. I think they figure in Canada they can get away unnoticed, and they probably could but for the Rebel which is now big enough to have some clout to keep them at bay.

I too feel as if I am charged criminally myself, like Kevin Johnston. We all should feel the same because an attack against one person’s rights and freedom is an attack against everyone in a democracy. This sets a dangerous precedent in police and law enforcement. How is this possible in Canada, where an AG meets with Djibouti, one of the most retarded and corrupted garbage country in the world, for advice?? And this was founded by the Saudis? OK they are at war with Canadians, but we are not at war with them. So far. It is time to get prepared because it will be ugly, like any other war.

Ron Voss, you might want to check out some of Stefan Molyneux’s podcasts where he talks about the European welfare state and some of the recent migrants who because of being illiterate in their own country will never work but will stay on welfare because it pays much better than a job. They will never try to assimilate because they will never need to leave their ghettos. He says the system will eventually implode, and perhaps that’s what Soros wants.

JANICE KAY commented, “Yet, the SJW’s want to tear down our society and replace it with something that could end up like the ones I’ve mentioned, or worse.” The SJWs and “useful idiots” will help to destroy our society to usher in the puppeteer (thing Soros) elite’s utopian totalitarian society, where they will end up like the ‘rabble’ in Venezuela scrambling to desperately find food and decent housing, etc., as their ‘reward’.
commented 2017-07-26 13:34:25 -0400
Edward Jobin, universities and schools are filled with Marxist/Postmodernists who want to destroy this civilization. They don’t inform their students that Judeo-Christian societies, while imperfect, are freer from corruption than others and work best to protect individual rights. In India, Untouchables have few rights, although the government is trying bring in policies to change that. Or if you’re in a higher caste, try getting your pension cheque cashed at the post office without handing over a portion of it to the peon who works there. In Muslim majority countries (Turkey excepted), women have fewer rights than men and gays have no rights. In China, the individual has limited rights. Yet, the SJW’s want to tear down our society and replace it with something that could end up like the ones I’ve mentioned, or worse.

Correction: when I mentioned in the comment below that Muslims in Europe and the UK weren’t usually charged for crimes, I meant non-capital crimes, like rapes of young girls in Rotherham. They appear to be charged for capital crimes.

- Did we doubt that the globalists running things in this country wouldn’t eventually get around to cracking down on wrong-think? They’re going to test the waters & see how much they can get away with. I’ll wait for the details but given that the mainstream fake news media has already tried & convicted Johnston makes me think he’s only guilty of exercising his freedom of speech (I notice that they have no problem with public schools basically being turned into mosques).

- Our globalist leaders are taking us down the same road as the EU where they’d rater see their children molested, mutilated & murdered than be labeled a racist & the police are used as a means of censorship.

- Of course the no-go zones are coming. Muslim mass-migration is about destroying Western civilization. The last thing the globalists want to see is it leading to a reformation of Islam. They set up no-go zones where sharia law can be set up & the most radical forms of Islam can be established & grown.

Ron Voss, excellent posts, and, thank you for informing Rebels of what happened to William Finlay – I had no idea he faced such an ordeal in Calgary. This is beyond disturbing.
Ezra, please follow-up with William Finlay and interview him. I would like to know what has happened since his detention, and, whether he begun a legal action against CBSA and the Canadian government.

Janice Kay: What they are teaching now is the worst form of bigotry. Yes white people have done evil things throughout history. Undisputable. But so has every color, nationality, religion, non-religion, political, gender, and sexuality group. To play the eternal victim and to single out whites while simultaneously ignoring the great advancements whites have brought to civilisation and to fail to mention the whites who have died fighting for their freedoms is so prejudiced it is ignorance gone to seed.

What’s happened in Europe and the UK over the past ten years is starting to happen here. In those countries, when followers of Islam break the law, they’re rarely prosecuted. Instead people are told to make allowances for them and anyone speaking out against this situation is shut down and threatened. With Bill M-103, it will be even easier to do this. Instead we’re asked to apologize for the Crusades, for our involvement in Slavery, for ‘stealing’ indigenous land, for our empires, for the Patriarchy; however, the Muslim world is never asked to apologize for their Patriarchy, for the millions of European, African and Asians they captured and/or traded as slaves until the mid 1800’s or for their Empire that stole land from Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, Zoroastrians and many polytheistic religions across Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia, slaughtering tens of millions of their citizens. The schools and universities are not teaching this and I see we’re now apologizing for our nasty treatment of Chinese, aboriginals, gay and even disabled people to new Canadians in the revised citizenship information brochure. No wonder some people hate out culture!!

LISA A. , while Trudeau asserts that there is no such thing as Canadian values and that Canada is “the first post-national state", Diefenbaker’s words “I am a Canadian, a free Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship God in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind”, are a banner to stand under and fight for.

Ezra saying, “They’re coming for Kevin Johnston today. It’ll be us tomorrow, and maybe you the next day”, I am reminded by a quotation attributed to Martin Niemöller, a prominent Protestant pastor who emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps, speaking out against those (unlike Kevin Johnston) who were complicit through their silence:
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for _________ and I did not speak out – Because I was not a __________.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

Equally alarming about creeping sharia in the aftermath if M-103 is the case of Bill Finlay (‘Wild Bill for America’), a retired patriotic American law enforcement officer, who was barred from entering Canada. He was scheduled to speak at a rally in Calgary hosted by an organization called World Wide Coalition Against Islam. His topic was the impact of Sharia law on women and children, as well, ironically, on the importance of freedom of speech. He was arrested, detained for 7 ½ hours and had his iPad confiscated and sent to Ottawa for a “forensic investigation”. He was warned that he could be slapped with a “tariff” of an unknown sum for “smuggling” his own words into Canada, a threat to harm him financially. Noteworthy that no statute was violated. Wild Bill was subsequently blocked from entering into Canada and sent home.

I had hoped that the Rebel would have highlighted this attack on freedom of speech and deferring to Islamic blasphemy law.
If events actually unfolded as he explains in his personal, recorded testimony contained in the link below, then this is a horrifying and highly alarming story that bears enormous implications for free speech and free society in Canada:

If one needs any more evidence that Canadians are at war with their government, here it is.

Time to accept the reality that liberals have declared war on all that is decent and they will stop at nothing until their perverted vision is a reality.

Time to do the right thing…

Declare civil war.

Start killing liberals and their fellow travellers.

Time to clean up this cesspool.
