Listen to today’s broadcast:
Vancouver, Canada – Religious material of Fortress of Faith.org was confiscated at the Canadian Border suspected to be ‘Hate Speech.’
Two boxes of DVD’s and CD’s containing the teaching material of Tom Wallace which addresses the issues of Islam in North America were confiscated and sent off to a “committee” to inspect the material. We were told “it appears to be hate speech and that if we were to come across the border again with this material, we will be arrested.”
The ‘scandalous’ material in question are Tom’s DVD’s which were professionally shot in a TV studio.
·The First DVD – Uncovering Islam, carefully examines the life and teachings of the prophet Muhammad. Everything in it can be easily document from Islamic sources.
·The Second DVD – Islam the Coming Judgment, documents what Islam has done in Europe and is scheming to do in North America. Again, everything is well documented and at no time is anyone incited to perform acts of violence against Muslims.
·The third item taken were CD’s that expose the growing movement of a hybrid religion called Chrislam. These audio CD’s contain two hours of teaching that reveals what Chrislam is, who is behind it and the heresies Chrislam propagates.
Canada is treating this material as hate speech and this so called “committee” may treat it as illegal contraband.
This is not the first time Canada has come down on people who speak out about Islam.
1. Ezra Lavant, a journalist, who reported on the fallacies of the Danish Cartoons.
Ezra Levant is a conservative political activist and author. He is the founder the Western Standard, is a broadcaster and columnist for Sun Media and has written several books on politics and public policy.
He got into Trouble for his printing of the Danish Cartoons and was prosecuted by Canada’s Human Rights Commission in Alberta. The Human Rights Commission hounded him for 900 days. They had 15 prosecutors working on the case full-time. Canada has a wonderful law which prevents frivolous law suits; if you lose the law suit, you pay the court cost. The HRC is exempt from this law. It cost Ezra about $100,000 in legal fees to defend himself. He said, “The Process became the Punishment.”
The HRC has powers to seize your property without a warrant and they confiscated his computers, which for journalist is a death blow to your occupation. The HRC was enjoying a 100% conviction rate as there is hardly no way to defend yourself. The defendant has no right of Discovery or Cross Examination of witnesses. Due to the public outcry, the HRC unceremoniously dropped the case but told Levant they are still watching him.
2. Author and talk show host, Mark Steyn.
If you listen to Rush Limbaugh, you have probably heard Mark Steyn with his British accent on the EIB network. Mark is also the author of America Alone, a well, documented thesis on the power growth of Islam.
In 2007, a complaint was filed with the Ontario Human Rights Commission related to an article “The Future Belongs to Islam“, which was published in Maclean’s magazine. Further complaints were filed with the Canadian Human Rights Commission and the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal.
The Ontario Human Rights Commission refused to proceed, saying it lacked jurisdiction to deal with magazine content. However, the Commission stated that it, “strongly condemns the Islamophobic portrayal of Muslims… Media has a responsibility to engage in fair and unbiased journalism.”
The federal Canadian Human Rights Commission dismissed the Canadian Islamic Congress’ complaint against Maclean’s in June 2008. The CHRC’s ruling said of the article that, “the writing is polemical, colourful and emphatic, and was obviously calculated to excite discussion and even offend certain readers, Muslim and non-Muslim alike.” However, the Commission ruled that overall, “the views expressed in the Steyn article, when considered as a whole and in context, are not of an extreme nature, as defined by the Supreme Court.”
Steyn said, I’ve learned a lot of lessons during my time in the crosshairs of the [Canadian human rights investigator Jennifer] Lynch mob. It’s not a left/right thing; it’s a free/unfree thing. But an alarming proportion of the Dominion’s “media workers” seem relatively relaxed about playing the role of eunuchs to the Trudeaupian sultans.

What is hate speech?
It has become popular to accuse anyone who disagrees with you and label him as a person of hate. And Lord help you if you are passionate about your views.
However, just disagreeing with someone’s views does not equal hate. If disagreement is hate speech, then, every politician should be arrested and fined.
The litmus test is if the speech incites others to harm others with violence. Tom says, “If you listen to the hours and hours of my recordings and read my articles, you will never find that. The irony of this is that I expose how Islam incites its followers to perform acts of violence against those who are not Muslims.
Tom says that he loves Canada. “After living in the UK for 29 years, I have felt a union with Canada through our commonality.” “British Columbia is like the best of American and the best of Britain put together.” Tom said, “I support the right for Canada to protect her borders. She is a sovereign nation and can choose to do what every she likes. However, Canada says that she cherishes free speech and is a free society. But of late, she is joining European nations that are limiting the speech of others. Canada is adopting UN Resolution 16/18 which was designed to make it a criminal offense to blaspheme or defame the religion of Islam. ”
He also said, “If Canada chooses to become a police state, who imprisons or fines anyone who does not toe the party line, they have that right. However, her citizens should know that Canada comes down on anyone who reports the truth about Islam. Canada should also stop trying to sell the idea to the world that she protects free speech.”
“Islam does not permit free speech. Muslims are not allowed to question Islam, the Qur’an, the Cleric or the Law, they are to obey. If they object or ask too many questions, they are treated as a trouble maker and are silence. These are the values that Canada is protecting and shutting up the Christian who is trying to protect freedom.”
