There is no indication from the CBC as to what this man actually wrote, which is understandable given the nature of the case: the CBC doesn’t want to be accused of “hate speech targeting Muslims” in turn.
The arrest, however, unless this fellow was calling for murder or some other crime, is ominous. Leftists and Islamic supremacists routinely defame any honest discussion of how Islamic jihadists use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence as “hate speech.” Their agenda is clear: to silence all critics of jihad, so that the jihad can advance unopposed and unimpeded.
As jihad attacks continue, non-Muslims will speak out in frustration at their supine authorities, only to be charged with “hate speech,” which will be used as evidence of “Islamophobia,” requiring new restrictions on speech.
“Hate speech” is not something capable of being objectively verified. It is in the eye of the beholder. Hate speech laws are tools of the powerful, used to silence those whose opinions they dislike.
It appears that Canada is well on the way to establishing Sharia restrictions on criticism of Islam. What other elements of Sharia will follow?
