Former Political Prisoner Brad Love Denounces Anti-White Discrimination & Is Arrested Again
Well, now another reality. On January 18, former political prisoner Brad Love heard repeated ads on the town’s rock ‘n roll radio station Rock 97.9. The ads by security giant Garda offered 40 hours of training for security guards. The one catch is that this offer was for “natives” – that is, Indians – only. Totally racist and discriminatory! Fort McMurray resident Brad Love, despite the Stalinist probation conditions imposed on him, was determined to act. Fort McMurray is suffering severe unemployment. [Statistics Canada reports a 7.4 per unemployment rate in Alberta for January, 2016.] Due to the low price of oil, many oil patch companies are laying off workers. Brad first approached Garda. He asked for an application. “You’re not a status Indian or a Metis,” he was told. “You don’t look Indian.” In the end, he left with an application form.
His next stop was Rock 97.9 He approached the radio station to obtain a business card or letter head so that he would have precise information for his human rights complaint. Now, he couldn’t directly protest or express his political views. He would have to be careful. In July 2012, having slapped him with an 18-month sentence for having sent non-violent information packages to Toronto Jewish groups in supposed violation of his probation order, Ontario Judge Kelly Wright imposed a three year gag order on Mr. Love, rendering him a virtual non-citizen: “Mr. Love is to refrain from any political speech or commentary to any media outlet, political, cultural or religious group or organization, or police organization.” Yes, that`s an Ontario judge, not one of Kim Jong-un’s judges in North Korea. His visit to the radio station was Kafkaesque. The receptionist wouldn’t look him in the eye. She acted strangely and refused to provide a business card.
Brad proceeded to file complaints against both Garda and Rock 97.9 with the Alberta Human Rights Commission on the grounds of racial discrimination. Mr. Love filed his complaint. On February 3, the Alberta Human Rights Commission contacted him. They were acknowledging and accepting his complaint against Garda. However, they advised, as telecommunications was a federal; matter, he would have to complain to the Canadian Human Rights Commission.
On Wednesday, February 3, he was informed by his room mates that two police cruisers had come looking for him and had asked him to contact that RCMP detachment. Brad did nothing. Friday evening, February 5, CAFÉ received a call today from former political prisoner Brad Love. He was in custody at the RCMP station in Fort McMurray, Alberta, charged with “breach of probation,” for having visited the radio station. Note, he’d offered no statements or political opinions. “The station puts forth an image of ‘rock ‘roll rebels,” Mr. Love says, “but when Brad Love shows up in the lobby asking for a business card, they call the RCMP.”
Mr. Love was arrested at 9:30 on Febuary 5 but not released until 4:30 the next day — an unusually long detention for an alleged non-violent offence. He did not get to speak top a Justice of the Peace until 6:30 a.m. The police wanted $1,000 bail. Mr., Love told the JP: “I’ve been in this town for nine years and have never spent a night in jail.”
“Maybe you should have,” snapped the JP.
“He’s a prejudiced …” said Mr. Love who had appeared before this man on previous occasions. Mr. Love had to post $250 in bail.
His paperwork charges him with attended the offices of KICS 98 Radio in violation of his probation order. KICS 98 closed its offices more than two years ago!
Mr. Love noted the deliberate delay in releasing him into a winter blizzard. “All the hobos and bums got out before me. I’m the only guy in here who regularly has a job.”
“Well, if you’re going to be like that,” his RCMP tormenters said to him and delayed him a bit longer.
