Canada’s Free-Speech Phobia

Islam-critic charged with “willful promotion of hatred.”

Ontario Attorney General Yasir Naqvi is charging blogger Kevin J. Johnston with one count of “willful promotion of hatred.” According to a Globe and Mail report, Johnston’s arrest followed a lengthy investigation of his online activism but news reports played up a recent story by the blogger, who operates the website.

In late April, after a head-on crash on Highway 3 near Windsor, police searched the Lexus in which Tariq Elamin and Satvir Singh were riding and found a sawed-off shotgun and .22 rifles. Police arrested the pair, now facing firearms charges, including possession of an illegal weapon and carrying a concealed weapon.

Johnston claimed the pair were Muslim “maniacs” and “on their way to kill people — shoot up St. Clair College,” in Windsor. Johnston cited “city staff” as his source but police and college officials deny any threat. A lawyer for Singh said Johnston’s video was “entirely fabricated” and “obviously racist.”

    Apparently Communists are not the only ones making the Long March through the institutions. Can a good Muslim be a good attorney general? For this we would need to know whether that person in their innermost heart holds to fast jihad, slow jihad or no jihad, which happens to be inversely connected to their goodness as a Muslim, according to Muslim texts not my own opinion.

    I would also hope, among many, many other things, that at some point the use of the word “racist” used to smear counter-jihadis would be challenged and discredited in court.

    Is a legal fund being set up for this guy?

      If this will go on and bloom, the word ‘racist’ will become a compliment. Just a prediction.

      The Muslims are able to do this and even their presence here are due to the communists/marxists of the Frankfurt School who had already infiltrated our institutions.

      Ezra suggested it in his last video but didn’t set anything up.
      Not sure if he’s still in Iraq though.

      He might be waiting for the details of what Kevin is being charged for specifically.

      It’s unlikely sites like GoFundMe or Patreon will allow anything like that on their platforms seeing as they are nuking accounts like “Wife with a purpose”
      who is a women who only talks about raising kids properly.

      Paypal doesn’t block accounts based on the politics of the creator
      but they do bow to pressure in the media.

      Peter Thiel, the conservative billionaire is one of the people behind Paypal
      but he might not be with it anymore.

    Well we can’t allow people to post opinions that are contrary to Liberal government policies now, can we?

    What I am finding even more appalling is the silence of normally and officially conservatives voices, even blogs, in Canada concerning this. BCF seems to be about the only Canadian blog even covering it and of course The Rebel while several American sites have covered it very well. This does not bode well for Canada.

        Not even remotely that far gone. yet

    Islam-critic charged with “blasphemy.”

  • Naqvi also wants to ban any protests outside of publicly-funded abortuaries.

    • Alain

      That must be to keep his marxist sponsors happy and pliable.
