Whatcott’s trial will be held some time in 2019. Pray for him! The Injustice System in Canada – Coming to the U.S.?
The victim of Canada’s repressive “injustice” system is Bill Whatcott, a pro-family born-again Christian activist. He is about to have his life ruined by the courts in Canada (with fines, possible jail time, ruined employment prospects, social ostracism). But he will not bend to tyranny and is standing for free speech.
Whatcott’s two ongoing cases are discussed below.
December 2018: His “hate speech” hearing before the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal (with further court action pending). Hundreds of thousands in fines may be assessed.
2019: His ongoing $104-million lawsuit in Toronto for a “hate crime” (preceded by his June 2018 arrest on a national criminal warrant).
What terrible “hate crimes” did Whatcott commit? The Orwellian tyrants in Canada deem it criminal to speak the truth about transgender ideology and the health hazards of homosexuality. Furthermore, he speaks from the unwanted Christian viewpoint. Then he adds a dash of humor. And so he has become an Enemy of the State in Canada.
A transgender activist running for Parliament was able to go after Whatcott for a flyer he distributed during the 2017 election. The flyer did not advocate violence, nor was it hateful. Whatcott just pointed out that the candidate was a man and not the woman he claimed to be. All Whatcott advocated was, Don’t vote for this guy who would continue to push his sexual radical agenda. (And the P.C. enforcers surely did not like the Bible quotes encouraging readers to repent and come to Jesus.)
The flyer gave the B.C. attorney general (whose website celebrates the trans activist plaintiff) and the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal their chance to silence Whatcott. The tribunal was clearly in accord with the plaintiff before the hearing started, having instructed all participants to use “she, her, Ms.” and his new female first name to address him.
Whatcott refused to comply with the speech order and even wore a shirt with a photo of the very male-appearing plaintiff and caption: Mr. Oger [the plaintiff], no matter how you use the state to silence your critics, you are still a guy. On the back of his shirt was a Bible quote: Male and female he created them. Genesis 5:2. One of the judges commanded him he to remove his shirt or see higher fines (indicating that the judges’ minds were already made up).
Ontario’s $104-Million Criminal Case vs. Whatcott
In June 2018, I traveled to Calgary, where I interviewed Whatcott just hours before he turned himself in on a national criminal warrant. The prisoner was ill treated by Canadian authorities over the next few days.
The Ontario case is frightening in its absurdity. Whatcott faces a claim of $104 million for the “hate crime” of passing out a flyer at the 2016 Toronto Pride parade. It included Bible quotes and information on diseases disproportionately seen in homosexual men. The plaintiffs, a homosexual activist and a former Liberal M.P., claim that the flyers promote hatred and were defamatory. They clearly didn’t want to face the graphic photos showing the ravages of AIDS.
The US To Follow
If Congress and more states pass anti-discrimination “equality” laws giving special protection to LGBTQ identities, “hate speech” prosecutions and compelled speech will surely follow.
In the United States, “There can be no doubt of that, given the LGBT-driven lawsuits we have already seen against florists, bakers, and wedding photographers. The Civil Rights Commission of Colorado has tried to compel speech from Jack Phillips of Masterpiece Cakeshop. We’re seeing numerous battles over bathroom use and forced use of silly pronouns in our media, colleges, and public schools. The EEOC already interprets Title VII (employment) to protect employees from “sexual orientation” discrimination.” So, we’re already on that totalitarian road; Canada is just farther along.
