Mark Steyn on the Geller Cancellation
by Canada’s Sharia Police

32

I was scheduled to speak at the Chabad Flamingo Synagogue in Thornhill, right outside of Toronto’s city limits, on May 13. But now Islamic supremacist groups in Canada, with sharia enforcement by the Canadian police, have succeeded in getting the event canceled under police pressure, and the organizers are looking for a new location.

Insp. Ricky Veerappan, of the York Regional Police force’s diversity, equity and inclusion bureau said,  “Some of the stuff that Ms. Geller speaks about runs contrary to the values of York Regional Police and the work we do in engaging our communities.”
Let me understand this. The “stuff” that I speak about – gender apartheid, creed apartheid, Islamic Jew-hatred, honor killing – runs contrary to their values? What exactly are their values? Imposing Sharia? Because that’s exactly what they’re doing. My value is life. What’s theirs?

Great stuff by the master:

Excluded by the Inclusion Cops By 
Mark Steyn, National Review

As
some readers will know, I’ve fought a long battle in Canada to restore
freedom of speech to a country that should never have allowed itself to
lose it. So I find this example of naked intimidation by state power
especially repugnant:

Pamela Geller, tireless campaigner against
Islamic imperialism (and a lady I had the honor of being introduced by
at CPAC a few years back), was scheduled to give a speech at a Toronto
synagogue on May 13th. Miss Geller is not a convicted terrorist or
terrorism-supporter or someone who argues for the execution of all
homosexuals. If she were, she could speak at any Canadian venue with
impunity. Instead, here’s what happened next:

TORONTO - York
Regional Police threatened to remove a rabbi as one of the force’s
chaplains if he hosted a controversial anti-Islamist speaker at his
Thornhill synagogue.

Insp. Ricky Veerappan, of the force’s
diversity, equity and inclusion bureau, confirmed he and officers from
the service’s hate crimes unit met with Rabbi Mendel Kaplan of the
Chabad Flamingo Synagogue on Tuesday.

They expressed concern about
an upcoming talk to be given by Pamela Geller, a vocal critic of
radical Islam. She protested past plans to build a mosque near Ground
Zero in New York City, and has posted anti-Jihad messages in that city’s
subway system.

When the York Regional Police
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Bureau show up thwacking their
truncheons against their palms and saying, “Nice little multifaith
advisory committee gig you got going, Rabbi. Shame if anything were to
happen to it”, a prudent man gets the message:

Subsequent to his meeting with police, Kaplan cancelled Geller’s May 13 talk.

So
that worked. Those who didn’t get the memo about Inspector Ricky
Veerappan’s self-enthronement as Greater Toronto Area Speech Commissar
are scrambling to find Pamela Geller an alternative venue.
If you don’t want the coppers determining whose opinions you’re
permitted to be exposed to, give ‘em your support. (Miss Geller has more
here.)

I’m
tired of being told what I’m allowed to read and hear by statist hacks
like Inspector Veerappan. John O’Sullivan likes to call the politically
correct British police “the paramilitary wing of The Guardian“. Unfortunately, the “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Bureau” would take that as a compliment.

PS More here. And this line from Inclusion Inspector Veerappan is particularly revolting:

Some of the stuff that Ms. Geller speaks about runs contrary to the values of York Regional Police.

Get
lost, creep. In free societies, a constabulary isn’t there to enforce
its “values”, it’s there to uphold the law. This man is unfit for his
job.
