Journalist called “racist” for questioning Muslim prayer in public schools

David MenziesMission Specialist

Kevin J. Johnston is a journalist who runs FreedomReport.ca. He has covered the issue of Muslim prayer accommodation in the Peel Public School Board and has been called “racist” for his troubles. 

Watch as I speak with Kevin at the march held by Concerned Parents of Peel Region about the extreme efforts school board officials have taken to stop him from attending meetings where they know he will ask tough questions they’d rather not answer.

If prayer is legal in schools like auntie Wynnie says it is then we had better start saying the lords prayer before class before lunch and at the end of the day.
@ Tammie, kudos.

Ron Joseph, Kevin e-mailed me back and thanked me for the information; he intends to look into this ruling further. I explained I wasn’t sure if there has been a more recent ruling from the Ontario Court of Appeal.

Muslims are not a race of people, they are followers of an evil cult so Kevin Johnson cannot be racist. There also is no such thing as islamophobia. A phobia is an irrational fear of something. Islam is something to be feared as islamists want to take over the world and get rid of democracy and have sharia as the rule of law. They do that wherever they go. It is a cultural jihad similiar to cultural marxism or socialism. As seen by the protests in Berkeley and after Trump’s election they leftists are a violent group of people. They hate free speech as shown in universities. The only speech they think that should be free is their own. M103 shows that muslims also hate free speech. Free speech exposes and these types of people hate being exposed.

Are muzzies not racists when they attack people they consider to be infidels?
Where are the legal eagles who should be enforcing the laws of the land when these blood thirsty throwbacks spout their religion of hate dogma?

Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt—Great work. I hope Kevin sees it as he will win his case positively.

The term racist has lost all effect when it comes from some SJW idiot. It may as well be some kid calling you a doo doo head.

PAUL MAURICE, so far I have found The Rebel to support free speech , thought and script. If they ever censored me that would be it as well .
However nobody is free to threaten anybody with bodily harm because to cause bodily harm without just cause is a crime. Not sure if that is what happened , however that would be a line I think.
I agree with Liza, this site is very free with allowing us all to spew.

Paul I highly doubt you received that email because you just spoke your mind. Most of us do, without a problem. It is either a mistake or you said something silly like, ‘the first order of business would be to ’off’ Justin’ or something similar, which you probably didn’t mean and said in the heat of the moment. It happens. I would imagine those sorts of comments are removed for the safety of the site and the writer of what ever comment was made. The Rebel does not make a habit of such removals and we all know it and get away with a lot, so lets carry on.
commented 2017-03-22 23:37:01 -0400
Paul…..One of the trolls have flagged you for hurt feelings. I have had the same thing happen to me and as you can tell by my posts, i have ignored it. We are the ones who put up the funds for this site, not the leftist regressive fucktard trolls that post here. If Rebel Media wants to remove are posts on the hurt feelings of those that don’t put up the money, then it will be their financial loss.

Paul Maurice said, “Gosh, Muslims (who practice their Religion of Piece) have a right to pray in our public schools. It’s the fascists Christians that must be kept away from corrupting our young people.”

Are you serious when you say this?
commented 2017-03-22 22:34:11 -0400
I’m with you too, Kevin.
commented 2017-03-22 21:33:49 -0400
Time for someone to write up a Christianophobia Bill. Maybs Bill 666?
commented 2017-03-22 21:04:48 -0400
Kevin, I’m with you all the way. Thank God for people like you who are not afraid to state the truth & stand up for democracy & free speech.
Go Kevin go!!!

Yes, I agree, cause I have done exactly that more than once, touched something on the screen by accident & up pops the flag comment. When this happens, I just type in that there is no red flag.
However, if The Rebel sends anyone such a warning, then the reasons for doing so should be forthcoming, that’s only fair.

I e-mailed Kevin Johnston with a portion of what I sent Kathleen Wynn toward the end of 2013, I asked her to uphold the Education Act and the law. The response from her office was it is legal to have religious accommodations in Ontario. Basically, prayers are here to stay! I will have to research whether there has been another ruling since then.
“According to the Ontario Court of Appeal, this school sanctioned prayer is illegal. In an appeal pertaining to Regulation 262, Subsection 28(4) of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms ruled the following:
“1.The school may sponsor the study of religion, but may not sponsor the practice of religion….5.The school’s approach is academic, not devotional…..They must not give primacy to any particular faith.”
Providing a prayer room is not an “accommodation”. It is using public school space for the practice of religion, which is illegal. Prayer is devotional and therefore, organized prayer time in a school is illegal. Only one particular faith is pursuing this prayer room, meaning that one particular faith is receiving primacy and is therefore illegal. "

Since 9/11 – IN THE NAME OF ISLAM (SATAN): 33,010 Attacks, 211,711 Killed, 295,786 Injured that we know of.

Paul – someone probably flagged your comment in error. It’s easy to do if you accidentally hit flag this comment.
commented 2017-03-22 20:11:03 -0400
Another correction: Rebel Media did NOT specify which of my ideas were unacceptable in their estimation.
commented 2017-03-22 20:09:42 -0400
I meant, of course, Religion of Peace. Though Religion of “Piece”…..give me a large piece of your freedom…..might have been more acceptable.
Ooooops……oh I am so sorry, Rebel Media.
There I go again, expressing ideas that are unacceptable and hateful to Rebel Media.
commented 2017-03-22 20:07:07 -0400
Gosh, Muslims (who practice their Religion of Piece) have a right to pray in our public schools. It’s the fascists Christians that must be kept away from corrupting our young people.
Does that comment meet with your requirements, Rebel Media?
(Rebel Media sent me an email recently saying some of my comments ….they did specific which…..had been removed as unacceptable. I have been supporting Rebel Media both financially and in spirit and action……NO MORE.)
commented 2017-03-22 19:18:21 -0400
What is glaring is that these so called educated people on the school board, responsible for the education of our children, don’t know that Muslim and Islam are not races, so it is impossible to be racist towards them. Get an education you idiots.
commented 2017-03-22 19:15:37 -0400
I wonder if the people that called the journalist racist for questioning Muslim prayers in public school would be okay with Christian prayers in public schools.

I bet those same people that screamed racist would scream bloody murder is Christian prayers were allowed in public schools.

Oh, the thick hypocrisy of those that cry racist stinks to the heavens.

It seems to me there are a lot of good people standing up lately against the lefty/progressive/globalist cabal and their evil agenda. Future leaders or heroes?
But do we stand a chance of winning against the evil ones and their recruitment methods…
