Freedom of speech shutdown: PEGIDA rally in London ON banned by city hall

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's show, John Carpay of the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms joined me to discuss PEGIDA being banned from holding a rally at a public facility in London, Ontario.

City Hall's decision was a violation of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and points towards the criminalization of opinions critical of Islam.

PEGIDA is a group that is vocally opposed to the Islamification of the West and were silenced by a city hall concerned with "bigotry", yet anti-semitic groups hold public rallies regularly and face little opposition from the government.

WATCH our discussion to see why I believe this an example of M-103 in action, and why John thinks Canada has some tough years ahead.

AYAN RAY:
You should get some professional help for your problems, it must be a real nightmare having to live inside your brain.
You might consider a priest to exorcise your demons, or a shrink to deal with your many psychoses, or you could do the world a favour and take your own life – but if you didn’t know, that is against the Ten Commandments.
Unlike you and the left, we believe in free speech here at THEREBEL and we support it, we walk the talk. We even support allowing dumb-f**k, mentally disordered degenerates, morally bankrupt, intellectually challenged retards and trolls like you having a voice – as in you haven’t been censored for your immature and juvenile nonsense.
But we would like you to leave this site because you have NOTHING to offer, except BS, lies, shit-disturbing, put-downs and the silliness of a six year old without the charm of an innocent child.
So don’t go off the deep end and do something crazy, and don’t go away mad…just go away.

Ayan Ray, teaching Holocaust revisionism to a Social Studies class isn’t really classified as a limitation on free speech because Keegstra was teaching an unapproved curriculum to public school students. Ezra Levant wouldn’t benefit from supporting holocaust deniers or the people obsessed with Nazi culture that call themselves Neo-Nazis because he’s Jewish. It is sound judgement to rationally question the possible motivations behind why a particular narrative is being presented to you and how it is being presented to you. Like the nanny I had who kept insisting algae could shrink cancer tumors because she read it on a pamphlet at a really upscale health food store. Just watch this one video https://youtu.be/6OLPL5p0fMg

“It is scary to contemplate what WILL happen when they succeed in shutting down THEREBEL, and all of our voices…and all of us silent and not so silent, backed into a corner!”

We will have a more peaceful society.

Free speech or promotion of violence and hatred through lies and rhetoric?

Ezra Levant and the like won’t tell you what Kevin Johnston said in one of his Freedom Report videos:

“It is time for us to take our masculinity back and beat the living hell out of these [Muslims]. Pin them down on the ground, and beat them until they pass out. And when they’re passed out, you beat them further; and when they’re on the ground passed out, kick them, break a kneecap, break an elbow, press their hands backwards turn their wrists sideways, start breaking these guys down.”

Johnston was recently charged under Section 319(2) of the Criminal Code because he is promoting hatred and advocating violence, NOT because he is criticizing Islam.

“Ayan Ray we will speak freely and you can do nothing about it, too bad for you.”

Keep dreaming. Normal people agree with me, which is why you always whine that you don’t have a “voice” in Ottawa. That’s because you don’t deserve a voice.

“In the 1990 case known as R v. Keegstra, the accused was a teacher who used his position to promote hatred of Jews. In that landmark hate-speech case, the Supreme Court of Canada noted that Section 319 of the Criminal Code, which prohibits willful promotion of hatred except in private conversation, does indeed violate freedom of expression rights. However, the Supreme Court also noted that this violation is justified because it is a reasonable limitation of that right. In Keegstra, the court ruled that on balance, the limitation was less harmful than the harm of the speech itself.”

People like you should leave if you are unable to live in a civilized society.

Dan, thanks for providing the link. I have only seen the movie, and, reading Baum’s words gives a whole new meaning.

The City council in London remind me of the flying monkeys in the Wizard of Oz, doing the evil witch’s bidding, no questions asked! Trudeau’s version of these beasts are ever expanding!

Most Westerners have heard of or have seen the 1939, MGM movie version of the L. Frank Baum book ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’, which he wrote in 1900. One of my personal favorite movies, it’s very different from the book. Here’s an excerpt:

Would that we could throw a bucket of water on Justin and make him go away…“I’m melting! Melting….”

“…we will speak freely and you can do nothing about it…”

Well, here at THEREBEL – the lone voice in the wilderness of Fake News – we can…for now, but the anti-democracy, anti-nationalist, anti-free speech zealots and their drones and zombies have narrowed down the field of where we can freely express ourselves, to near nothing!
But take heart:
“…Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not…
Galatians 6:7-9

It is scary to contemplate what WILL happen when they succeed in shutting down THEREBEL, and all of our voices…and all of us silent and not so silent, backed into a corner!

Karan Singh damn rights, and every time the useful idiots downplay and deflect as if it will just go away because they ignore it.

Karan Singh commented 2 hours ago, “It’s (sharia creep) a very serious manner, shouldn’t be taken lightly and don’t expect any help from any politicians/political party or judiciary. We, the people, have to fight this tyranny on our own.”

What do you suggest?

Karan, I agree with you completely.

Karan Singh, we do need to fight this tyranny. Thank you for posting info. about the cancelled rally, this is disturbing news.

Sharia is being implemented stealthily into canadian society. Last week another pro-free speech/anti-M-103 rally scheduled for August 26 was cancelled in Grand Prairie, AB by city council.
At this rate we’ll be declaring Canada dar-al-islam within next 2 years, leaving Sweden, Britain, Germany far behind.
It’s a very serious manner, shouldn’t be taken lightly and don’t expect any help from any politicians/political party or judiciary. We, the people, have to fight this tyranny on our own.

Trudeau has accomplished another objective in his goal of bringing “basic dictatorship” to Canada: banning free speech.
