I post this because it's Canada news you probably won't be hearing from the mainstream, but might find interesting. It's blog-talk from Pamela Geller's blog concerning repercussions from an incident involving a recent speech engagement she had cancelled in York Ontario due to pressure tactics from a guy us blog fans have come to call L'il Ricky of the York Police. There's lots of interesting little sidebar tidbits.

Quote:
When a policeman uses the full force of the state to enforce the Shariah at the cost of our constitutionally protected inalienable rights, the West is in trouble. But that’s what happened last May in Canada, when I was scheduled to speak at the Chabad Flamingo Synagogue in Thornhill, right outside of Toronto’s city limits. Two of York Regional Police’s “finest,” Chief Eric Jolliffe and Inspector Ricky Veerappan of the force’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Bureau, threatened Chabad Rabbi Mendel Kaplan into canceling my speech.

Other Canadians wouldn’t stand for this, and my speech went on as scheduled in another venue. And now I have even more good news. The intrepid Canadian freedom fighter Ezra Levant was determined not to let this police intimidation stand. He encouraged me to file a complaint, and now our complaint against Inspector Veerappan has been accepted for investigation. Our complaint against Chief Joliffe has been forwarded to the York Regional Police Services Board for further consideration – since he is chief of police, there are extra procedures to go through.

Veerappan richly deserves to be investigated for his persuasion of Rabbi Kaplan, who serves as a chaplain for the York Regional Police. Back in May, he announced that if Kaplan hosted my speech as planned, “then we’d have to reassess our relation with (Kaplan). Some of the stuff that Ms. Geller speaks about runs contrary to the values of York Regional Police and the work we do in engaging our communities.”

Values? The “stuff” that I speak about includes gender apartheid, creed apartheid, Islamic Jew-hatred and honor killing. That runs contrary to their values? What exactly are their values? Imposing Shariah? Because that’s exactly what they’re doing. My value is life. What’s theirs?

The Ottawa Citizen said in an editorial, “The York Regional Police department should be ashamed. … Whether the job threat was real, and whether anyone agrees or not with Geller’s views, Veerappan’s conduct is appalling. Canadians expect police to respect Charter provisions protecting freedom of speech. They are not supposed to act as censors at the behest of a particular community.”

And the incomparable Mark Steyn wrote: “Thanks to the York Regional Police’s creepy and Orwellian ‘Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Bureau,’ Canada is now a land where cops are sent round to synagogues to threaten rabbis – all in the name of ‘diversity’ and ‘inclusion,’ which must give the old-school fascists a laugh at their Monday-night poker game in hell. Jewish organizations north and south of the border ought to be up in arms about this. According to Brian Sibley, Inspector Ricky Veerappen, the head of the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Bureau, is himself Muslim – which may or may not explain why he’s strutting about like the Ontario branch of Saudi Arabia’s Mutaween.”

Steyn also pointed out the double standard: “Pamela Geller, tireless campaigner against Islamic imperialism (and a lady I had the honor of being introduced by at CPAC a few years back), was scheduled to give a speech at a Toronto synagogue on May 13. Miss Geller is not a convicted terrorist or terrorism-supporter or someone who argues for the execution of all homosexuals. If she were, she could speak at any Canadian venue with impunity.”

It’s true: The superb Canadian blog, Blazing Cat Fur, reported at the time that my talk was canceled that “Imam Abdul Hai Patel, is a chaplain with the York Regional Police. Patel, along with other members of the Canadian Council of Imams in 2012, attended a conference in Saudi Arabia sponsored by the Muslim World League. The Muslim World League, as detailed below, has a long and sordid association with terrorists. Do note well that the Muslim World League operates WAMY – the World Assembly of Muslim Youth. WAMY was stripped of status as a Canadian charity last year after it was discovered to have funded terrorists.”

And the convicted terrorist and airline hijacker Leila Khaled, who is known as the “poster girl of Palestinian militancy,” spoke via Skype in early June at the University of British Columbia. Khaled has been convicted of terrorism for participating in airline hijackings for the Palestinian Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a terrorist group. She spoke at a conference hosted by a group supporting the Palestinian jihad.
This outrageous double standard has to end. It is good that Veerappan is going to be investigated. Free people must not stand idly by while our most basic, fundamental freedoms are silently seized and destroyed.

All she does is spread ignorance and hatred, not much of a loss.

Just a small gem I have found to tell you how close to honesty she is in this blog post.

The stifiling of free speech aside, the Police having a "Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Bureau" does nothing to raise the hairs on your neck? The police deciding on what is moral does not set off alarm bells?

People like Pam Geller have always been around and always will be. For this generation, Muslims are the bogeymen. 70 odd years ago, she'd have been in this parade when this photo was taken.

I've never understood this debate technique some adopt where they seem to believe if they merely mention a name of a person they disapprove of they have defeated all argument.

Here for example, L'il Ricky the Muslim cop was putting police pressure on the Jewish Rabbi threatening to have him fired as a prison chaplain, because he was allowing a speaker who Moslems and Progs do not approve of to speak at his temple. Prog logic informs us this theocratic, and ideological stifling of free speech is not only all right, but expected, and any complaint is worthy of shock and bemusement, because...Pamela Geller...oh and also...Ezra Levent. Some sort of logic short hand understandable only to Progs, and theocrats, I think.

That Bureau would likely have been the guys that banned Westboro and their like under hate speech laws. In this case I highly doubt they threatened the Rabbi, more likely they mentioned something about problems that could arise or requested them not to let her speak and then she went on and did what she does with the rest. Pamela went on to call Ezra Lavant an "intrepid Canadian freedom fighter", she's not exactly what you would call anything near a reliable source. Hilariously this is also using a blog as news, something we lefties seem to get insulted for regularly whenever we use one for a story here.

OK Jeff, so that's the second time you've complained about Levant being referred to as an "intrepid freedom fighter". I'm not sure what you object to there. Are you saying he did not, for instance, battle the human rights council fearlessly over an issue of freedom of speach?

Hang on. There's a video I have to look for. I want to show it to you.

We entrust the police with certain abilities the public has because we ask them to 'keep the peace' and 'investigate crime'.

Where in the North York Police (or any police department) charter doe sit say we expect them to tell us what to think, or who gets to use their right to free speech?

I don't give a flying fuck what people like Levant or the Wetboro nutbars have to say, but I am all about their right to say it. A "Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Bureau" is offensive to me.

1) He writes for Sun Media, the worst possible source for reliable information in Canada.
2) He has been investigated for hate speech in the past when he went on a tangent about gypsies all being thieves.
3) He is for Quebec separatism and anti-Aboriginal
4) http://www.sunnewsnetwork.ca/sunnews/st ... 80807.html He jumped straight to eco-terrorism, taking the few released details to push his own agenda. He proceeded to report it as though he had closed the case when investigators still had no clue.

He is far from some freedom fighter, he is the right wing equivalent of Greenpeace.

Ezra's one moment of legitimate glory against the foulness of the HRC doesn't erase that he's an idiot the remaining 99% of the time.

Also, using Pam Geller as a source for anything = auto-fail.
