Meet Canada’s pro-censorship librarians (and their surprising supporters)

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Hate is a natural human emotion. It’s not illegal. In fact, it is part of our freedom of thought and belief. Just don’t commit a crime while you're expressing it.

But here's the latest news:

Toronto library staff can now refuse event bookings "likely" to promote hate

If you’re a taxpayer, you’re still forced to subsidize these libraries, of course. But they can ban you if they don’t like your politics.

The excuse for this ban was that a few months ago, a group of people had a memorial for a free speech lawyer, Barbara Kulaszka. Kulaszka used to be a librarian. Then she was a lawyer for free speech activists who were censored. Including some racists.

She died, and some of her friends — including some racists — wanted to have a memorial for her. But leftists wanted that banned. From libraries.

I've looked into some of the outspoken supporters of this new rule:

I’m not surprised that Canada’s most censorship-oriented Jew, Bernie Farber, was pushing for this. And CIJA, the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, supports this ban, too.

So the official Jewish lobby in Canada thinks it’s a good idea to give leftist union bosses in libraries the power to ban people they don’t like. Because in this one case, a lawyer-librarian represented a racist.

How long do you think it will take Canada’s Muslim extremists to use that very same policy against Jews themselves?

It’s already happening:

A couple of weeks ago, a film about Muslim anti-Semitism in Europe was banned by Ottawa’s public library — because it was “hateful.”

"Librarians for Censorship." The only thing more insane is "Jews for Librarians for Censorship."

Surely the people of the book knows that never ends well...

NEXT:'s Joel Pollak speculates on the outcome of today's controversial election in Alabama, and the accusations surrounding Republican candidate Roy Moore.

THEN: Last week, our "Mission Specialist" David Menzies reported on the criticism a liberal Toronto TV personality received after appearing on Tucker Carlson's FOX News show.

Tonight he joins me with an update:

Stephen LeDrew has been fired from his long time television gig, and Menzies reveals the real reason why.

(PS: Here's the "Generation Trudeau" report David mentioned...)

Censorship at the Public Library is of concern, librarians who use censorious tactics are a disgrace to their profession!

@ Frank Hohimher, “Canada dealing with the stresses of life give a shit about what librarians are doing.”

That attitude is exactly why this country is in such big trouble. If people don’t even notice when their freedoms are being infringed upon and how once it starts it spreads like cancer, then there is little hope of heading off totalitarianism. Speech and thought police are the first step towards government control of thought. Look around at history, that never ended well anywhere it was tried. It ended in hundreds of thousands of murders of people who just didn’t think the correct way.

Frank the left has a friggin cow if someone disagrees with them , quit acting like they do not care. They get upset over everything.

Frank Hohimer one seat is not Canada , and free speech is a right ,libraries are paid for with public money. What part of that is above your IQ level?

Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt,

I am pretty sure that most people have more important things to worry about. I doubt Canada dealing with the stresses of life give a shit about what librarians are doing.

Canada has spoken.

Trudeau basks in federal byelection upset

Justin Trudeau says the results of four federal byelections Monday night show the Liberals are on the right track with their focus on middle-class Canadians.

Not surprisingly, the prime minister was the only party leader to express unalloyed pleasure Tuesday in the results, which saw the Liberals score their second byelection upset in as many months.

The Liberals snatched the British Columbia riding of South Surrey-White Rock from the Conservatives in a close-fought contest. They also easily retained a safe Liberal seat in Newfoundland and Labrador and another in Toronto, although their vote share declined somewhat in those ridings.

The Conservatives, who retained a safe seat of their own in Saskatchewan, took consolation in the fact that they increased their share of the vote in three of the four byelections.

But it’s the second time since Andrew Scheer took the helm of the Conservative party last May that the Tories have lost a seat; in October the Liberals snagged a long-time Conservative seat in Quebec’s nationalist heartland in a byelection.

There was no consolation for New Democrats, who saw their share of the vote drop in all four ridings Monday — and in all six since Jagmeet Singh was elected leader in early October.

“I think the message we’re putting forward and the connection we’re building with Canadians of focusing on the middle class and delivering for them has resonated,” Trudeau asserted Tuesday.

In the House of Commons, he subtly needled Scheer about the byelection outcomes, choosing to answer a question about trade with China with praise for all those who ran in the byelections and congratulations for the winners.

“This was a good day for Canada and a good day for our democracy,” Trudeau said.

I don’t understand why Ad Hominem has become so virtuous. If I find an auto mechanic who does a good job at a reasonable price and is honest in his dealings with me, I don’t care or really even want to know about his personal life. This is especially true with a professional like a lawyer or accountant, I could give a rat’s ass or even 2 rat’s asses if you buy your wife flowers enough or spend enough time with immediate family or what have you, if the job is done I’m happy.

Trudeau has rigged the next election.
Yup. That’s why he is importing so many undocumented Liberals. Helps with the election results. I wonder what it feels like to sell your soul to satan?

Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt,

Canadians are not voting for Scheer this time around. Trudeau is guaranteed at least one re-election.
Left wing Canadians are not voting for Scheer this time around, Because as good lefties they uphold the first pillar of leftiedom: They never learn from their mistakes.
commented 2017-12-13 02:35:27 -0500
7 more years of Trump is going to be SO MUCH FUN, the left is already losing their minds.
commented 2017-12-13 02:26:52 -0500
Frank where is all the Trump Russia proof?? STILL WAITING! All that is happening is that biased left wingers are trying to find anything they can and only finding that the left was colluding. LMAO!
commented 2017-12-13 02:25:08 -0500
Frank show me the links of CBC covering the trial, not just a small verdict article. Or CTV or Global. At least the Toronto Star did some coverage. CTV has merely local reports. If you think that is all over it, you are not too bright. And please show me the CBC covering the Jewish family attack in Calgary.
commented 2017-12-13 02:22:26 -0500
Glad this Alabama election is over with.
commented 2017-12-13 02:16:47 -0500
Frank here you go Global reported on it as well. And no one was at the Levin trial other than one person from the Rebel and one other independent. CBC had 3 trucks at the Duffy trial and the MSM was all over it. The MSM was not all over it. LMAO! And prove he is a pedophile Frank.
commented 2017-12-13 02:09:18 -0500
Drew Wakariuk,

What are you talking about. A simple two second Google search show the MSM were all over the Levin trial.

Phony immigrants with child porn? Proof please outside of The Rebel.

Trump endorsed Moore. Even went as far as to do robo calls for him this last week.
commented 2017-12-13 02:03:10 -0500
Frank Hohimer you do realize that by letting in phony immigrants with child porn that Justin and the libs are supporting pedophiles eh? And the Liberal media ignoring the Levin trial was also supporting a pedophile , so bark at them before saying Trump did anything of the sort.

Trudeau doesn’t need a rigged elections. Canadians are more than happy to vote for him again over Scheer. Well maybe not Canadians from parts of the West.

You act like Trudeau has to buy votes here. I know this kills you, but he is actually well liked and people are pretty happy with him outside of some exceptions.
commented 2017-12-13 02:02:34 -0500
Moore’s loss is not that big a deal except for the media party victory parade and the expected snickering and yapping from the demoncrats who care. Congress is infested with at least10% of pedophiles from both major parties and pretty much all of them have been blackmailed and paid off from deep state companies within the military industrial complex. That’s how they become multi millionaires from tax payer contracts and are being controlled by the deep state.

What really matters is what Trump is going to do over the next year. One huge item in Trumps favour is his possession of all e-mails the NSA collected for the past ten years. Within those e-mails contain the names of the blackmailers and now Trump has to figure out how to bring them down along with the pizzagate and pedogate cabal. John Podesta is walking around right now with a pant load and could be the next one to get suicided. Hillary even said it. If he (Trump) gets elected we could all go down. Busting the pedophilia ring is the key to draining most of the swamp.
commented 2017-12-13 02:00:08 -0500
Frank Hohimer why does this kind of thing NOT concern you? everyone should have a say , including you. Especially at publicly funded places.

Sweden should just secede from Malmo and the Islamic south. Let them have the south, and Sweden can still be Sweden in the North.

Anonymous book burnings will happen in time and the idiots burning them will still call others Nazis.
commented 2017-12-13 01:57:41 -0500
Frank Hohimer which celebs are you talking about? The only ones fired so far had previous court cases. And if you are so concerned about trials tell it to BLM. And i watched when LeDrew was on Tucker, he did not say or do anything that should have gotten the SJW’s upset. Not sure what exactly he did to earn their wrath?

Trudeau has rigged the next election.

Just like Wynne did provincially, she enlisted the OPP in her dirty tactics (officially they claim it was the union not the police but listen to the original opening line of attack ad). The fix is in. It is the same Red Tent.
commented 2017-12-13 00:45:40 -0500
Jeff Sessions should have never been offered the Attorney General position and he should never have accepted it knowing full well he would recuse himself from the so called Russia investigations.
Trump committed a big blunder because he lost a Senate seat and is stuck with a wounded duck AG.
It isn’t just Trump. The Democrats will destroy anyone that attempts to run Republican .They want a one party system without opposition. They are close and every effort will be made to impeach Trump.
commented 2017-12-13 00:41:44 -0500
The left now represents big corporations, the rich and the special interests, and the small folks are too dumb to understand that they no longer count for anything in the left agenda. They are manipulated into believing that the democrats/liberals will care for them. Good luck. Just look at Trudeau, giving billions of taxpayers money to big foreign banks, where all the risks are borne by the small folks who guarantee the loans if the investors made a bad business decision and don’t make enough profits. All the while Trudo is talking non-stop about taking care of the middle class. LOL. People are lied to, their money stolen by the rich, but they vote for it, so they approve. All you need to do to fool them is to create drama on many different subjects at the same time, bring up accusations from now old women about their teenage years, et voilà, you have them.
