“The Canadian Anti-Hate Network will publish the names of 250 members of the neo-Nazi Canadian Nationalist Party if they are successful in becoming a registered political party. We plan to publish these names and their cities of residence as soon as they become public, and will encourage local media to run stories naming neo-Nazi supporters in their communities… This kind of naming and shaming is part of our mandate of exposing hate groups to make sure communities are well-informed, and to ensure that there are significant, nonviolent social consequences for supporting hate groups.” – Extract from a Canadian Anti-Hate Network July 10th statement, quoted by the Canadian Assoc. for Free Expression in a press release issued on July 15th, 2019.

“The issue centres around the repeated pressure being put on social media outlets by the Trudeau government to stop what the government claims is ‘misinformation’… A series of restrictive policies have been put in place surrounding political advertising, and this has resulted in Google saying that political ads will not be allowed in Canada ahead of the federal campaign… In this case, the Liberals have the entire massive apparatus of government in order to get their message out, they have their $600 million media bailout to influence the press, and they have the CBC to push their messaging – all without the opposition having anything similar.” – Spencer Fernando, “Twitter political ad ban shows Trudeau Liberals dangerously restricting dissent” – The Post Millennial, July 10th, 2019.

“Amazon has taken another step towards political censorship, banning all books by Dr. Joseph Nicolosi, a psychologist associated by critics with the rise of ‘gay conversion therapy’… In February, the company banned several far-right, white nationalist authors. In March, the company went further, banning Muhammed’s Koran, a book by Islam critics Tommy Robinson and Peter McLoughlin highlighting violent passages in the Islamic text.” – Allum Bokhari, “Amazon bans ‘conversion therapy’ Books” – Breitbart, July 8th, 2019.

“Prosecutors said Jones shared Islamic State videos that depicted the deaths of people who were beheaded by a child soldier, drowned in a cage, and blown up by a rocket-propelled grenade while locked inside a vehicle. Another video demonstrated various ways to stab someone. It was titled, ‘Some of the deadly stabbing ways: Do not forget to poison the knife’… Still, their lawyers argued, ‘this is all protected speech, [no] matter how morally objectionable it may seem. Supporting distasteful, objectionably horrible groups is in and of itself not a crime. In fact, it is protected by the Constitution’.” – Jon Seidel, “Two suburban men guilty of providing support to Islamic State” – Chicago Sun-Times, June 20th, 2019.

“The newest wrinkle comes under the category of Lawfare. It consists of hate crime laws that are directed against anyone criticizing Jews and, increasingly, Israel. In fact, any criticism of Israel is frequently being seen as a criminal offense, a trend that is also evident in the United States at the national, state and local levels, where Jewish groups have also been quick off the mark in claiming that anti-Semitism is surging. Freedom of speech in the western world has been diminished as a result.” – Philip Giraldi, “Recruiting American spies for Israel: Tax-exempt American foundations lay the groundwork” – The Unz Review, June 18th, 2019.

“If you censor speech, you break faith with Canadians because you say we are not to be trusted with dangerous ideas and your job is to save us from ourselves. In which case it is impossible to understand why we should be trusted with ballots.” – John Robson, “Censoring free speech breaks faith with Canadians. Don’t go there” – National Post, June 4th, 2019.

“The ‘trans woman’ never becomes a true woman, but is forever in transition, permanently rowing against the tide of biology. But the diagnosis ‘transsexual’ wasn’t meant to last long. By 1980 in American politics the bold vanguard of homosexual empire building needed a new outpost to plant their flag. The mental disorder ‘transsexualism’ was fast-tracked to become a non-disorder, just a happenstance of mind called transgenderism. The DSM IV published in 1994 introduced the term ‘gender identity disorder’. Then in the DSM V in 2013, the process of normalizing a gross abnormality in the most fundamental psychological identification of human experience, i.e. whether one is a male or a female, was completed. Transgenderism stopped being an identity disorder at all. It became merely a ‘dysphoria’ or an unpleasant feeling.” – Deborah C. Tyler, “Is transexualism a disassociative personality disorder?” – American Thinker, April 12th, 2019.

“Nessel, in partnership with Agustin Arbulu, director of the Michigan Department of Civil rights, say they will create a process to document incidents of hate and bias that don’t rise to the level of criminal or civil infractions… That could translate to speech or expressions of opinion that some may find offensive, but are protected by the First Amendment. Bias is protected by the Constitution until it infringes on the rights and freedoms of others, and hate is often in the eye of the beholder… Groups have been singled out as hateful by the SPLC for opposing gay marriage, abortion and immigration… The SPLC is extremely reckless in its selection of groups to include on the hit list.” – Nolan Finley, “AG Nessel puts civil liberties at risk” – Detroit News, March 9th, 2019.

“NDP Vice-President Morgane Oger intends on creating a ‘Canadian Atlas of Populist Extremism (CAPE)’ to map extremist groups, individuals and incidents across Canada… the B.C. Civil Liberties Association has warned that while the tool might be useful it would come with a host of privacy rights issues… ‘All kinds of things that people think are hateful constitute genuine political speech,’ said policy director Michael Vonn pointing to the example of immigration policy criticism… without a proper model there are legal issues around posting the personal information of private citizens online on a ‘hate map’.” – Cosmin Dzsurdzsa, “Morgane Oger’s “hate map” might have privacy issues: B.C.

“…Local Marxist student groups, such as Socialist Fightback, were immediately vocal about what they view as Ford’s ‘anti-protest laws,’ claiming the rules will muzzle their ability to protest ‘fascists’ and ‘racists’ on campus. These Marxist groups fail to recognize the line between demonstration and disruption. Freedom of expression and assembly does not protect someone who uses noise, physical obstruction and other forms of violence to prevent someone else from exercising their own free expression rights.” – Lindsay Shepherd, “Fate of free speech on campuses uncertain” – Toronto Sun, Feb. 10th, 2019.
