Eric Brazau found himself in Ontario Superior Court again last week. The 52-year-old Toronto man, who has already served eight months for being a so-called “hate mongerer,” was facing several new charges including three counts of causing a disturbance and breaching the peace.
Yet Brazau’s true crime, at least in the eyes of the state, is that he has a big mouth.
When he opines, he speaks about the threat posed to the Western world by Islam, which our politically-correct government, judiciary and police services, consider a no-fly zone.
Previously, I brought you the story of what happened to Brazau when he attended an anti-Trump rally in front of the American consulate back in January.
It was one of those touchy-feely “Love Trumps Hate” events where radical leftists openly advocate for the assassination of the President, which apparently is okay, but Brazau was handcuffed for trying to exercise his free speech.
Whether you support Brazau or find him to be a vulgar crank, he’s never crossed the line of advocating any sort of harm toward an individual or group.
The charges he faced last week had to do with a display he erected at Yonge-Dundas Square in November 2015, just hours after the terrorist attacks in Paris.
Watch as I explain what’s happening to him as a result of his “crime” of warning passersby about the dangers inherent to Islam.
In an ironic turn, outside the courtroom where Brazau was being tried stands a plaque entitled “Freedom of Expression”, stating “The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees, as a fundamental freedom, that everyone has the freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression.”
