Victims of the “utterly fascist, utterly Stalinist” anti-free speech, thought – policing,neocolonial, imperialist Gaystapo – add Peter La Barbera , Bill Whatcott

JCHS-(update)-(5x35)La Barbera arrested

“The remedy for speech that is false is speech that is true. This is the ordinary course in a free society. The response to the unreasoned is the rational; to the uninformed, the enlightened; to the straight-out lie, the simple truth”.
United States v. Alvarez, 567 U. S. ____, *16 (2012)

 

……  Judge  Anthony  Kennedy…..

 

Canada  is  not  a  free  society  and  appears  to be  well  on its  way  to  becoming a  fascist,Stalinist, anti-free  speech , thought-policing  Gaystapo  state  however  this  blog  is  willing  to  await  the  outcome  of  the  cases  against  Peter  La Barbera  and  William  Whatcott  before  making a final  determination.

 

The  information  so far  is  that  the two  men  approached    to  a  University  to  be  allowed  to present  their  ideas  on homosexuality  using a  table  and  were  denied  –  the  university’s  reason being  that  “We are a diverse campus, we are a welcoming campus,” .  

This  university  is apparently a place  of  training rather  than  education –  institutions  of  education allow  students  to  think through ideas. Places  of  training  impose ideas  on students.

They  proceeded  to  set  up  a  table  anyway  and  were  removed  by  police.

On  the face  of  it  La Barbera  and  Whattcott  appear  to  be  victims  of  the  anti-free  speech, thought – policing Gaystapo  of  a  “tolerant  and  diverse”  university

U.S. anti-gay activist Peter LaBarbera and a Saskatchewan man were arrested on the University of Regina campus on Monday and will be charged with mischief, police said.

LaBarbera, who is with a group called Americans for Truth about Homosexuality, and Bill Whatcott were distributing anti-gay literature on the campus.

Before their arrival, the university issued a news release saying the pair would be monitored to ensure they did not engage in any activity that would promote hatred.

At one point, with news cameras rolling, an unidentified university official approached Whatcott, 46, and LaBarbera, 51, and asked them to leave. During that encounter, Whatcott said he had attempted to get permission to set up an information table and, since he was denied, proceeded to set up a table anyway.

“I’m not leaving,” Whatcott told the official, “You guys are intolerant and should be ashamed of yourselves for shutting down our message without even considering it.”

A short while later, several Regina police officers arrived and Whatcott and LaBarbera were handcuffed and taken off campus.

University officials defended their decision to call police.

“We are a diverse campus, we are a welcoming campus,” Tom Chase, one of the vice presidents of the university said. “We celebrate that diversity and our staff felt that the material and some of the things they had with them simply contravened that policy and we asked them to leave.”

“The idea that you can’t have an open debate on homosexuality on a college campus and some speech code is brought in, to kick people off … seems to me to be pretty undemocratic,” LaBarbera said.

Late Monday, police issued a news release confirming they were called to the university around 1 p.m. CST and noted that two individuals were “engaged in a presentation of images and statements” and refused to leave the campus when requested by university security.

“When both men refused security’s demand to leave, they were taken into custody, without incident,” police said in their release.

Last Friday, LaBarbera was briefly detained at the Regina airport, but was allowed into Saskatchewan to participate in an anti-abortion conference in Weyburn on the weekend.

Police said the pair have a court date of May 16 for the mischief charges.
