Many many people believe the charter is there to protect them. It isn’t. And this misconception has led to complacency. Now we are in 2018 and things are not better, they are worse.
We have allowed the government to erode our charter and manipulate the law to circumvent the charter.
We do not have free speech in this country. I keep saying this and will keep doing so. We do not. Those that think we do, guess again.
Here are some examples:
1. Hate speech laws. I was there when the federal government put these laws into place, and I didn’t like it back then. They force people to be silence about their feelings on specific groups of people, well let’s just be honest, on everyone but White Males. It made it legal to bash White Males and no one else.
Originally the Hate speech laws were very specific. They use to state that it was illegal to incite violence to a specific group. Like gay people. Inciting violence to a group of people is called a call to action. An example would be “Kill all the gays” this would be a call to action. Now fast forward to today, and the hate speech laws are changed to be really vague.
Here is an example:
Public incitement of hatred
If you believe this is straight forward it is not. For example, there is no definition of Hate in the criminal code. And how do you incite hatred for a group? Due to this vagueness, it is easily abused into arresting people for citing facts about a group. For example, how black people make up the smallest percentage of the population but according to government stats, they have the highest crime rate in any group.
By saying that, if you have a different type of world view, then it could be construed as inciting hatred toward a group. Which is bad because it silences facts that someone may not like. And is totally dependent, on the subject viewpoint of the reader. Doesn’t matter if my intent is not hateful.
Then here is the other issue. A summery conviction. A summery conviction means a judge makes this ruling. Not a jury. So a summery conviction usually happens in court when you have two parties before the judge and the judge listens to both sides and then rules. Does this sound fair? I don’t find it fair or just. There is no justice with this law.
Next in the law we have this:
Wilful promotion of hatred
Now we have Wilful promotion of hatred. This one is just as bad. It prevents someone from handing out literature, writing a blog, etc from exercising their free speech. It even states it is okay do to so in private. Meaning, you can’t publicly state your views on a topic about a group. This is what this section says. Scary huh?
So my writing this blog can be reported to the police and I could be charged with hate crimes. Or anyone for that matter. IF they mention any identifiable group.
Thankfully there is an out. If the judge ruling accepts the out. If the facts stated or communicated are true. Here is the exact section:
So you would have to prove the statements are true in court as the defense, usually it is the prosecution who has to prove their statements. Guilty until proven innocent in court for the defendant in cases of hate speech.
There is an out for religious people. Their holy writings. So if their holy writings say gays are bad, then they can promote that. Only if they can prove their religion says this.
If a public discussion is being had then you can talk about it, but again, privately.
So you get the idea of the laws.
So moving on, we have the trans-phobia law. These laws state that you have to use the preferred pronouns of the trans person, otherwise you are committing a hate crime by not doing so. This is called Compelled speech. And no common law government has ever done this. Communist governments, yes. Socialist governments, yes. Democratic ones, no. Never. Canada has broken away from democracy and is heading down the highway of Marxism.
Due to the universities and their Marxist ideologies coming from the gender studies courses we have seen a massive influx of kids over the past ten years coming out and entering the work force influencing society with this disastrous ideology and mentality.
They treat white males with contempt and vileness, and elevate and give special treatment to minority groups based on some invisible oppression scale. It’s a disgusting world when you can openly be racist to white people and when the racism is pointed out, groups of black clad people come out and violently attack people under the guise of being against fascism when they themselves operate under a communist ideology which is a symbol of fascism at it’s finest. And it is worse when many of the general public support it.
Meanwhile people from really oppressive cultures that are truly hateful, that follow a religion that wants us subjugated under their religion are protected and given succor. Like the Islamic terrorists who are allowed to come back to Canada. Meanwhile White Farmers from south Africa who apply for refugee status because they are being killed, raped, and beaten because of their skin color is denied entry, for simply being white. It is disgusting that our government allows this.
Now we have bill C-71 which has passed it’s first reading. It will effectively make it illegal to own a long gun. (Rifle). Which would essentially disarm the people.
When are we the people going to draw the line? When are we the people going to protect our freedoms from the government ?
As the saying goes… Silence = Death. If we don’t stand up now, our freedoms will die.
