North Korea Lite: American Speaker Arrested in Canada for Smuggling “Hate Speech” on His iPad
If you’re an illegal from Ghana or South Sudan or Iraq and you sneak across the border from the U.S., the Mountie who is supposed to serve and protect Canadian, not invaders, will act as an enabler. He carry your suitcase and assist your brood of kids and maybe even buy you a coffee.
However, if you’re an American invited here as a visitor and cross legally through the Calgary International Airport, we give you the third degree, seize your iPad and arrest you for “smuggling hate speech”. Meanwhile the venue that was to host your speech has been cancelled by another arm of the state because the organizing group is critical of radical Islam. Reporter Cari Keleman rexplained: “A special event permit for the event was denied by Calgary’s Department of Canadian Recreation, according to an article by CBC News, “on the basis that your organization, and messages it espouses, are hateful.
Wild Bill for America, also known as William Finlay, a popular author and speaker, was arrested today, June 24, 2017, at a Canadian airport for “smuggling hate speech” on his iPad. He was invited to speak at an event at Calgary’s Olympic Plaza called the “Patriotic Unity Mega Festival” coordinated by Canada’s Worldwide Coalition Against Islam (WCAI) which also has organizations in Europe and Australia. Finlay served as a Navy Corpsman with the Marines before becoming a career law enforcement officer, serving as both a Deputy U.S. Marshal and Deputy Sheriff. A public speaker, frequest guest on radio talk shows, YouTuber and blogger, Finlay says his “mission in life is to encourage and strengthen America’s faith in God and Country. It is not politicians, but individual Americans with the courage to speak out who will keep freedom alive in the USA.”
CBC (June 22, 2017) reported: “The Worldwide Coalition Against Islam (WCAI) has been advertising an event on Facebook planned for Saturday afternoon at Olympic Plaza, dubbing it the Patriotic Unity Mega Festival. But Calgary Recreation denied its application for a special event permit, “on the basis that your organization, and messages it espouses, are hateful,” the city told the group in a written response. Despite the rejection, a spokesman for the group said it will hold a peaceful march starting at Olympic Plaza Sunday afternoon. ‘We are going to march downtown and show the biased city officials that we will not be silenced,’ Jeremy Phillips messaged CBC News from a Facebook account associated with the WCAI.
