EXCLUSIVE: Kevin Johnston talks about facing prison for his anti-Islamic opinions

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Kevin Johnston is an independent citizen journalist from Mississauga who runs FreedomReport.ca. This week he was arrested at his home, handcuffed, put in the back of a patrol car, taken to jail, and charged with a crime: 

Section 319(2) of the Criminal Code — “wilful promotion of hatred”.

That’s not a real crime of course. Hate is a normal human emotion; you can’t simply ban it.

So what did Kevin Johnston do or say?

There’s a publication ban over some of the facts.

However, I sat down with Kevin Johnston to ask him about the things he was allowed to talk about:

His arrest, the deletion of his Twitter and YouTube accounts, how he’ll pay his legal fees, and more.

I also talk about Johnston’s chances of winning, and the difference between my fight with the Human Rights Commissions ten years ago, and what he is facing today.

And I can’t help but think:

How long until the police come to my house, to handcuff me in front of my wife and kids, for what I say on TV?

“Ayan, you are lost in mental illness and repeatedly post the same thing; on so many threads.”

That’s because Ezra Levant and the like repeatedly talk about the same false stuff, which you have no problem with!

Thanks for confirming your bias.

Ayan, you are lost in mental illness and repeatedly post the same thing; on so many threads.
I encourage you to seek help with your doctor. I will pray for you.

“Ayan Ray, Yes he lost.”

Poor LIZA ROSIE did not know that.

“Johnston has previously ran for mayor, and lost to Mississauga Mayor Crombie in 2014.”

Keep dreaming that other Canadians would fall for Kevin Johnston’s lies!

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?

“Ayan Ray, Kevin Johnston doesn’t live in Grande Prairie.”

But he is spreading lies about Muslims coming to Canada, not just where he lives.

Kevin has said for some time now that he will run for Mayor. They are afraid he just might have the support and have been told from ‘above’ that in no uncertain terms can that be allowed to happen. It would ruin the momentum of the sharia push experiment currently being perpetrated by all levels of our Islamic apologist/accommodating government.
He is a wanted man.

The left are losing, hence the violence and arrest of those who disagree with them.

- This disgraceful attack on free speech is being done to see how far the government can go to destroy our free speech before they provoke enough outrage to make them stop & of course, to intimidate others into silence. Just in case you don’t think this applies to you – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZcridvxfLBo It has nothing to do with rather you agree with Kevin Johnston or not, this is a choice between freedom & tyranny. If we aren’t willing to fight for freedom we’ll default to tyranny. The government aren’t going after someone who is polished & well known right away – they’ll come after them once they’ve established their hate speech laws by going after the Kevin Johnstons on the world.

Charging that Imam and then letting him run back to Jordan is a joke. He should have had his passport taken so he couldn’t flee. I think the crown laid the charge for lip service to our laws.

Edward, you nailed it on the head when you wrote," I understand in cases of youth or keeping rape victims identities secured or if there is sensitive security information that would be vulnerable but that over polite Canadian public needs to push back sometimes and make sure there is justification for all this secrecy and not just because we say so."

I think media outlets should band together to argue against this publication ban in court.
commented 2017-07-28 11:51:58 -0400
Liza: Many Canadians are completely in the dark about the rape gang, rape grooming situations. In a recent conversation I had with someone and I mentioned this they asked what country did this happen in after warning me I was sounding Islamophobic. This only speaks to the effectiveness I which the MSM has played down these issues that the bulk of the population never even was aware of it and we have been so psychologically conditioned that anything we hear out of the norm sets off the oh oh you sound like a racist warning bell even when it’s true and has nothing to do with race.

Tammie: I see these bans happening seemingly more and more often without explanation and without challenge (to my knowledge). I understand in cases of youth or keeping rape victims identities secured or if there is sensitive security information that would be vulnerable but that over polite Canadian public needs to push back sometimes and make sure there is justification for all this secrecy and not just because we say so.

The paypal transaction with credit or debit card on FreedomReport.ca is smooth and easy and you don’t have to have a paypal account to do it. I can’t afford to donate much to the cause but I figure every dollar counts so I put in my few bucks.

Ron Voss, our Conservatives definitely need to educate themselves. They are not showing any signs that they understand the enemy, and seem to be ignoring our requests to do so.

As Tommy Robinson has tweeted, “Buy Mohammed’s Koran why Muslims kill for Islam now on amazon. Know your enemy” https://www.amazon.com/Mohammeds-Koran-Muslims-Kill-Islam/dp/0995584907

“The book shows how, since year 1 of the Islamic calendar, Jihad has been the fundamental component leading to Islam’s success. And the book proves that this account of Islam was known by the educated elite across the West for centuries”.

“You will see laid bare the Koran’s obsession with non-Muslims and with wiping out any belief system that is not Islamic. The problem with Islamic terrorism gets worse by the year. Politicians, clergy, teachers are lying to you and your children. They are working to enable the violent Islamic takeover of the West.”

Perhaps the publication ban should be challenged in court, the media have successfully argued this in the past and the ban was lifted.
commented 2017-07-28 10:57:38 -0400
There does also seem to be a concern of conflict of interests when someone is challenging your preferred religion. If yo cannot see clearly to keep your personal feelings out of the case then maybe you should step aside and allow someone less invested handle it. We aren’t in Iran after all and we should not be using the Ayatollah’s opinions as a reputable source for legal procedure.

I do think Ezra is being wise in waiting to gather a little more information. I’m sure Kevin is an OK guy but it’s just smart to collect as much info as possible which is admittedly difficult when the court seems to be less than transparent.

Gag orders are used to silence the real victims, who have yet to be convicted. So that the courts can manipulate our laws with impunity, and without public knowledge of how they are imposing sharia law on a democratic country.
commented 2017-07-28 10:24:43 -0400
A gag order is supposed to protect the innocent but everyone should know by now the libtard dumbocat judiciary do it to protect the guilty musloids and/or the complicit government. Check out the result of the Lacy Peterson case in Idaho. She is the 5 year old girl who was raped and sodomized by three muslim kids and the judge puts a gag order on the victims mother and father.

Rebelation Rebelation – thank you! I had no idea, since most of us are ignorant of the heavy hand of the law, until we are unfortunate enough to be subjected to it. My only point of reference is divorce court, and I wouldn’t wish that circus on anyone!

BILLY HOWARD commented, “I wish the CPC could realize that they are our last hope for freedom and Canadian values, because without the Rebel, we will need another group to lead us.”
Sadly, I don’t put much hope in the CPC coming to the rescue. I had sent the CPC MPs an email, "Can we rely on our politicians….to tackle this?‘, based upon a question Tommy Robinson had raised. I included a link to one of Tommy’s videos. I asked two questions if the MPs for which I requested a simple Yes/No answer:
1) Is Islam a religion of peace?
2) Do you agree that the terrorist activities are not connected to Islam?
Only two MPs were willing to answer. One answered Yes with respect to both questions and the other said he didn’t know with respect to question 1, but answered Yes with respect to question 2.
If you don’t know your enemy, you can’t defeat your enemy.

The police will not come for Ezra. It is more likely that Ezra gets hit with nuisance lawsuits and his accounts getting banned.

Look at what happened to Lauren Southern and her getting kicked off Patreon.

LIZA ROSIE-I fully agree that Right of Center Media should work together ; I was happy that Ezra went on the Stefan Molyneux show, together they were great.
What surprised me was Ezra said," Kevin is not like us, he is just a little guy that works out of his basement." Well Ezra was working out of his living room a year and a half ago." I’m sure Ezra isn’t a snob, but still it didn’t sound like Ezra.
I believe that Ezra was testing Kevin’s strength to see if he will go all the way to fight this, or give up for a slap on the wrist and forbid him to get back in the internet media business. If Ezra feels that Kevin will give up, he likely won’t crowd-fund him.
