Video: Kevin Johnston arrested for “hate crime” under Section 319 (2)

He is unable, by court order, to relate specifics of the charge or to name his accuser. Nice country we live in huh?

Based on the following explanation of 319(2) I suspect the charges relate to Johnston’s “Reward Offer” to anyone filming a Muslim student spewing Koranic hate in a Mississauga school.

Section 319 (2)

Public incitement of hatred

319 (1) Every one who, by communicating statements in any public place, incites hatred against any identifiable group where such incitement is likely to lead to a breach of the peace is guilty of

(a) an indictable offence and is liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years; or

(b) an offence punishable on summary conviction.

Marginal note:Wilful promotion of hatred

(2) Every one who, by communicating statements, other than in private conversation, wilfully promotes hatred against any identifiable group is guilty of

(a) an indictable offence and is liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years; or

(b) an offence punishable on summary conviction.

Marginal note:Defences

(3) No person shall be convicted of an offence under subsection (2)

(a) if he establishes that the statements communicated were true;

(b) if, in good faith, the person expressed or attempted to establish by an argument an opinion on a religious subject or an opinion based on a belief in a religious text;

(c) if the statements were relevant to any subject of public interest, the discussion of which was for the public benefit, and if on reasonable grounds he believed them to be true; or

(d) if, in good faith, he intended to point out, for the purpose of removal, matters producing or tending to produce feelings of hatred toward an identifiable group in Canada.

    Praise Allah!! If you say anything negative on the internet or in public in Sunny Ways Ontario, you will be charged by Wynne’s sharia police. But don’t worry, you can still preach about killing the filthy Jews and Christians in Ontario mosques. I’m sure glad we have those government commercials on TV showing peace loving muslims enjoying Canada’s birthday.

    • marty_p

      And of course Mosques are private places and are exempt from the legislation.

  • TruthSerum

    Johnston likely charged with the “hate crime” of “Islamophobia”.

    My definition of Islamophobia:

    Islamophobia – speaking the truth about Islam.

    • Pretty Much.

      • ontario john

        This website is probably next. It will be replaced by a government website praising feminist Trudeau 24 hours a day.

        • I hope not. I get a lot of my news from it.

          • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

            There are plenty of other sites protected by the first amendment.
            For every site they shut down 100 more will pop up in their place.

            The purpose of this is to put fear into people.

            I’ve dealt with CSIS and the Vancouver “Hate squad” back in the 90’s
            it’s all posturing bullshit to get as many people as they can to run away and shut up.

            There are more of us then them., It won’t work.

          • The right spirit.

        • Nah. we would crush em in court.

            Or use a foreign server or host or whatever it’s called.

        • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

          That sort of thing went on in the early 90’s and it blew up in their faces with tons of mirror sites popping up.

          The internet we have today is in part created by by the censorship war we fought back then.

          They lost then, they will lose again..

            The video is Johnson’s second Youtube account, he was down for less then a week.

            All this is going to do is recruit an army of people who will mirror his content on sites like Liveleak and other ones who’s admins are going to
            ignore Canadian authorities attempts to get it removed.

            Censorship nowadays is a game of wack-a-mole they can’t possibly win.

  • Maxsteele

    Further proof that we do not and have never lived in a free country. I knew that, eventually, they would go after Johnston with the full force of the government. With the current virtue signaller in the PM office I do not see this ending well. Funny how the Imam’s and Muslims can shout from the rooftops about killing Jews but no charges ever.

    • They have given Islam Carte Blanche, it will blow up in their faces, only a matter of time.

      • Cowardice never pays off. At the end one has to suffer much more than one would have if one had shown guts and reacted strongly on time. It is amazing that a whole generation of leaders throughout the Western world do not know this simple fact.

        • jayme

          They don’t think long-term. Arguably (and perhaps somewhat cynically) one might suggest that this is because they are primarily focused on the next election: say or do whatever is necessary to get elected, seems to be their motto. Run up staggering deficits, appease unappeasable minorities and special interest groups, etc. And to heck with the long term ramifications if it nets you an extra vote or two.

          • Yes. But they are also mentally/spiritually confused.

          • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

            Most of the “Leaders” doing this sort of thing are childless.
            A good chunk are also women who tend not to see threats
            until it’s knocking on their door which is why you don’t see female Generals..

            Trudeau does but his entire life has been spent in a bubble.

    • Clausewitz
  • Kafkaesque.

  • Mr_bigstuff

    One of the overt danger signs of our loss of freedom was when the gutless MSM stopped allowing comments to be published about their news stories – That was one of the nails in the coffin – We are no better then some third world banana republic – The RCMP/OPP act just like the federales – Disgusting and shameful –

    • This was political no question, there is a large Muslim constituency in the GTA. The Liberal Party are Islam’s whore. Expect more of this.

      • LauraS

        Sad but true.

      • Malcolm Y

        The only problem with this is: suppose it does blow up in their faces, we have already moved down THEIR road some distance and it is unlikely we will be able to travel back to where we started.

        • Act as if the revolution already happened.

        • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

          Shutting down free speech never works well for the people who do it.

          Once they get a taste of the alternative they’ll back down or be taken down.

      • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

        I just called the AG office in Ontario and got them them to confirm, he’s a practicing Muslim.

        Welcome to Canada, where the truth is no longer a viable defense in a court of law.

    The liberals are running a fascist police state in Canada.

    Canada is a shithole.

    • They are vote whoring, this is political.

      • irishrus

        More than just vote whoring… social suicide assisting

    • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

      It will blow up in their faces.

      No worries.

      • J. C.

        Not without a lot of bloodshed.

  • Oracle9

    We are legislating against an emotion.

    Let me get this straight. Inciting to murder, comng from the pulpit of a mosque or at a Quds day rally is just fine, but “incitement to HATRED” is indictable. That could be construed to be any criticism of ANYTHING, since criticism can elicit emotions such as hatred from those who read or hear the criticism.

    Trudeau’s Canada, where human nature is about to be ‘perfected’.

    • Clausewitz

      Nailed it.

  • pdxnag

    A Charge of Islamophobia – Conduct that would be a death penalty offense in a Sharia-compliant land. Opposing or objecting to Islamic supremacism and violence against non-Muslims. Blasphemy apostasy and the like included, for Muslims/former-Muslims.

    Public incitement of hatred – Calling someone an Islamophobe. Indeed this is a special hatred, as it is a genocidal hatred, a crime against humanity.

    Jail today, in the West. But as hostile Muslim invaders gain more control they will apply the Sharia in all its bloody glory.

    • People will discover what ferocious Haters the Muslims are are just what kind of Savages they are.

      • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

        A little suffering is what they west needs.
        Modern living and 70+ years of peace have made us soft.

        • True, but there is also the insidious effects of generations of leftist education and propaganda since WW2 and before. All this is now coming to roost, turning people into sitting ducks in the face of Islamic invasion and aggression – in the name of diversity and non-racism.

          • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

            Generation Z plays by a different set of rules that the left and authorities doesn’t understand.

          • Yes, some of us escaped the systematic conditioning.

          • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

            Generation Z doesn’t get their news from the MSM, they get it from places like Youtube which Conservatives control content wise.

            They are pushing back at PC garbage and hate censorship.

        • Soon enough there will be no time left for the soft.

        • Bla Bla

          Man, I was really enjoying 70+ years of peace that the previous generations fought and died for… Humanity must have some sort of defect that causes them to go insane (socialism) in the times of peace leading to more war.

    • This isn’t about Johnston or whatever crime he is alleged to have committed, this is about silencing dissent on immigration, Islam, refugees etc, issues that have the potential to gore the Liberal Party. They badly miscalculated on Khadr, the Syrian refugee program is an expensive, socially disruptive security risk and M103 went over like lead balloon. This is a sop to their Muslim base as was removing the “Barbaric practices” section of the citizenship guide.

      • Bla Bla

        Indeed, this is the same bs they are running in that other western utopia – germany.

  • irishrus

    WTF… Et too, John Oakley got on the p.c. wagon too, and lambasted the guy as an ignoramus without defending free speech at all.

    How is making serious comment or making fun (for that matter) of a billion idiots most of whom don’t live here (yet with no thanks to Turdeau) who waste their lives away dedicated to a f….ing religion that smells much more like a brutal culture

    based on, originated, referred to and carried on, past present and future in the name (and males mostly named after) of a founder pedophile, woman beater and murderer of all non- compliants ? Even Hitler wasn’t a pedophile or woman beater but he was the same Jew and Catholic killer

    We should get f….ing awards for pointing out the f…..ing obvious to the blind, deaf and dumb Muslim sheeple… especially the females who live a fantasy of something else which is fine but call it something else because Islam is what it f….ing is past present and future.

    To the Brampton cop on tv and the spokeswoman on the news bytes and asshole attorney general, who act like they’re f….ing free world heroes of (non victims) go f… yourselves

    • I am no fan of him or is methods either to be honest, and we do not yet know the specifics behind the charges.

      The government tends to make this stuff up as they go along in such matters so there is likely not much of case to make.

      It’s motivation is political I suspect which makes it an even more dangerous abuse by the government.

      • irishrus

        To be honest I never heard of the guy charged before so I am just dealing with this issue as a stand alone and for just this incident there should be no hate crime charges … which I understand the charge was based on.

        that he offered an award for anyone reporting of hate speak towards non Muslims in Muslim group school prayers would seem to be made in at ‘least’ half jest.

    • Clausewitz

      AM 640 seems to be following along the path similar to what happened at CFRB. Sad really.

    • A Hamilton Guy

      He’s just using the F word like the Irish

  • ontario john

    But apparently its not a hate crime, for the Star’s Heather Mallick to warn people not to go into rural Ontario. Its full of white men in baseball caps and white T shirts who will rape and assault you. No hate mongering at the Star.

    • LauraS

      Heather Mallick’s continued employment at the Star is a hate crime in itself.

  • Raymond Hietapakka

    All this bullshit to put up with because morons think religion is always so special and it’s just fine for them to spew their hate speech…..

    • It’s tiresome all of the time, but this is a declaration of war by our “government” on its citizens.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Maybe not so much a declaration of war but a pronouncement of your status change from citizens to subjects.

  • The fruits of Motion 103.

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    Canada, you need a “First Amendment” or you will forever be assaulted by whatever petty tyranny of the moment is fashionable.
    You are putting people in jail for exercising their civil liberties as FREE MEN, unless of course you mean to communicate the message that Canadians are no-longer free.

    • Clausewitz

      We will never have a first amendment until we adopt a Second Amendment first.

  • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

    Just called the office of the Ontario Attorney General Yasir Naqvi.

    He’s a practicing Muslim from Pakistan.

    • Arrived in Canada as a refugee from Pakistan, the most backward of all Muslim states.

      • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

        I’m beginning to think there’s a pattern going on, can’t put my finger on it.

  • krystal10

    I’m curious as to who filed the complaint. It’s most probably related to this issue and Peel School Board complaint: http://globalnews.ca/news/3347956/muslim-prayer-hate-speech-reward/

    • That seems the most likely reason, but the government will likely toss as much at the wall as possible hoping something sticks.

      • krystal10

        His only way out of this is to say he would have blurred the faces in the video of the Muslim students praying, thus ensuring privacy of individuals.

        • If the charges are “video” related just the act of offering the reward publicly will be regarded as incitement I suspect, but then I am not a lawyer.

    • J. C.

      Probably that bitch Mayor Crombie… According to a quick Google search, she’s filed ‘hate crime’ complaints against him before. Now she’s got M-103 and a Paki A.G. to back her up…
