Toronto Police Shut Down Draw Mohammed Day 2014

The “Draw Mohammed Day,” marked on May 20, was started as a demonstration in defense of free speech, inspired by the so-called Danish cartoons, which depicted the founder of Islam. Needless to say, that didn’t work well – the usual Muslims response when their religion is discussed in an unflattering way is threats and more threats. Because of the Muslim death threats, Molly Norris, who started the event, had to go into hiding and change her name. She disappeared completely and nobody knows whether she is dead or alive.

In Toronto the event was marked by the free speech activist Eric Brazau. Again, needless to say, that event didn’t go well either. Canada has become so deeply engulfed into the multicultural “nirvana” that every attempt to make the point that we have in our country cultures and ideologies, which simply don’t fit our traditional values, is met by hostility and suppression.

Brazau was recently sentenced to nine months in jail for “hate speech” – which was based on a single flyer critical of Islam that he distributed several years ago. That failure of the Canadian judicial system shows how far our authorities have gone to accommodate one of the most violent religious ideologies in the world.

Eric Brazau has held similar events before – like the protest against a Muslim supremacist sign painted on a mosque wall and another appearance at which he was arrested for mocking Islam.

His favourite method is a satirical street performance during which he assumes the persona of an imam giving a mock sermon. Just like it was in the communist countries, the political satire in Canada is a dangerous endeavor that could land you in hot water (unless you mock Christianity).

For the Draw Mohammed Day, Brazau brought downtown cartoon artwork, easels and art supplies.

He placed everything at the corner of Bay and Dundas streets, asking the people passing by to make their own renditions of the founder of Islam. There were a few, who did that.

However, many more got totally pissed off about the initiative. Brazau was attacked; they swore at him and even told him he was going straight to hell. Other than Muslims, who were the majority among the upset people, there were plenty of downtown lefties, who chastised him for violating the multicultural harmony.

Most of the encounters were captured in a video, which you can see below.

There was not much action at that corner, so Brazau decided to move the show at a place with a higher pedestrian traffic – at the corner of Yonge and Dundas, right in front of the Eaton Centre.

That brought him more action than he could handle. The Muslims soon swarmed him, yelling and screaming, oblivious to the fact that in Canada we have a right called “freedom of speech.” They simply couldn’t comprehend that somebody may criticize their religion in public.

A valuable addition was a Muslims tranny, telling everybody how he became transgender, but he still was a Muslim. The fanatics around him grudgingly accepted his “support” – after all he was doing their dirty work. He was attacking Christianity by yelling “Fuck Jesus” and “Allahu Akbar.” You can see and hear that creature near the end of the video.


The fiery Muslim tranny


Many of the threats came from the group of Muslim fundamentalists distributing free literature (most of it printed in Saudi Arabia), which promotes Islamic supremacy and even wife beating, like the booklet shown in the pictures below – Women in Islam.

The booklet’s instructions on how to beat your wife


Every culture is attacked in it with regard to treating women – in Hinduism they were slaves and concubines; in Judaism they were enslaved by their “guardians” (ironically, Islam has the same antiquated guardianship, but it is presented as women’s “protection”). Here is how that piece of printed Muslim garbage conveys the Koran’s “wisdom” of controlling your wife:

Although beating of women is generally forbidden, Islam permits the beating of wives in a restricted and limited sense only as a final solution and acceptable valid reason when all else fails. This is analogous to spanking children when all else fails and they must learn a lesson in obedience for their own protection and success.

Have ever the lefties or the extreme feminists challenged that horrible view?

Naturally, the Muslims have been distributing their extremist literature for years, without any problems. People like Brazau are those, who are punished.

Soon after he changed the place, two policemen showed up and told him that he must leave. They used a phony excuse to justify the demand – he didn’t have a permit to stay there and was using an illegal structure (the easels).


The police kick out Brazau

The whole thing was ridiculous because at the same time there were plenty of people standing nearby and promoting different causes – a large group of Muslims (with several plastic boxes); Christian preachers; Jehovah’s Witnesses; a Birdman, and even a Batman. It is hard to believe that any of them had a permit. Of course, the person who criticized Islam was kicked out.


Did Batman have a permit to stand there?


That ended the event – Brazau was told in no uncertain terms that his type of free speech is not welcome in downtown Toronto.

Here is the video of that day – with all preaching, confrontations, angry Muslims and hostile cops:


However, as they say in the commercials – wait, there is more!

Brazau is not the type of person, who gets easily discouraged. He showed up again the next day, doing the same routine. He stood for a while at Bay and Dundas and then moved to the Eaton Centre.

There is another video covering today’s events (see below). In the beginning things were proceeding smoothly – he was doing his shtick without much of an attention. He was even approached by an officer from the Toronto Municipal Licencing and Standards. They had an amicable talk and the officer said that there was no problem, since Eric Brazau wasn’t selling anything and was exhibiting art.

The things didn’t stay amicable for very long – the officer and his colleague remained in the vicinity watching Brazau. Shortly thereafter, two cops were called. After the four of them discussed the situation, Brazau was told to change the location. He moved around the corner.


The lonely protester


That wasn’t enough – two security guards from the Eaton Centre showed up and told him that he was standing on private property – he had to move forward, beyond the line in the picture.

After he moved, the representatives of our glorious city government dropped all pretences of fairness. The two City Hall officers and the two cops approached him again and gave him and ultimatum. He was supposed to go away. If he ignored the warning and they had even one complaint from Muslims, he will be arrested immediately.

Brazau tried to argue that he also was willing to complain of the Muslim fanatics spreading their propaganda at the same place, but his questions were repeatedly ignored. Reluctantly, he had to leave.


The final blow


Here is the video of his interaction with the city authorities (sorry for the quality of the sound, but the car traffic there is enormous):


The events of the last two days were another example of how our government (on almost all levels) has sold our interests to a medieval cult, which is responsible for horrific terror and atrocities worldwide, including sending Canadian Muslim terrorists to fight in Syria. And the same people are allowed to distribute freely their jihadist and misogynistic propaganda in downtown Toronto with full police protection. At the same time, a person, who dares voice an opinion critical of Muslim extremism is threatened and kicked out.

Such police methods would’ve been perfectly acceptable under Hitler and Stalin, but wasn’t Canada supposed to be a tolerant and democratic country?

Shame, shame, shame…

    Website of a lawyer who specializes in suing the police. He is very good at it. If the cops know Charney is representing Brazeau they will back off:

    I’m surprised that anyone should be surprised by Mr. Brazau’s vicissitudes. As Lenin acutely–if cynically– observed, it is all a matter of _kto-kogo_ (who-whom). In places like Toronto, Moslems are in the “who” class, while oppositionists like Mr. Brazau are definitely in the “whom” class.

    Makes you wonder how much more intolerance is coming down the pipeline until all freedom of expression (except for queers and Muslims) will not be tolerated at all.

    Brazau should be given a medal. All these third worlders in Toronto who don’t understand the fundamental freedoms of the West. (Well before it was denatured)

    The Toronto Police didn’t do anything about the Hezbollah flags raised at Al Quds Day last year at Queen’s Park. The rally happened without a permit. The Toronto Police are OK with a banned terrorist group’s flag. And okay with Elias Hazineh, former President of Palestine House inciting violence against Israelis (shoot them with a 2 min warning). That isn’t hate. Obviously Toronto has a police problem
