Canadian Protester Arrested for Criticizing Islam’s Wife Beating Rules

A small group of protesters arrived outside the headquarters of the Liberal Party of Ontario whose Labour Minister had endorsed an Islamic guide book that included wife-beating tips.

One of them pretended to be an Imam while another, a woman in a Burqa, pretended to be his wife, and they satirically mocked the Liberal Party’s tolerance for Islamic Sexism.

Protesters carried signs reading “Beat wife only for honour & discipline, Holy Koran 4:34” and “Those that deny Islam will be killed, Holy Koran 33:16”

Using a microphone, he gave a mock Muslim sermon, assisted by the veiled woman. He was “praising” Canada as a place, where you can beat your wife with impunity. Reading from sheets of paper, he also counted all the benefits you would get here if you are a religious fanatic.

It was a performance not too different from some actual Islamist rallies

Brazau “gave a mock Muslim sermon, assisted by the veiled woman. He was praising Canada as a place where you can beat your wife with impunity. He also counted all the benefits you would get here if you are a religious fanatic.”

There was some laughter. But not everyone was amused.

Under Socialism, you can mock some religions but not others.

At certain point the police decided that the mockery of Islam is getting dangerous and sprang into action. Even more officers arrived and Eric Brazau, along with the other organizer, Ron Banerjee, were led to the police vehicles in the side street.

After the customary processing, Brazau was handcuffed and led away in the van. Brazau was charged with breaching previous court conditions, uttering threats and assault with a weapon.

“It was a satirical performance,” Banerjee said about what he witnessed and what he also captured on a video that is now in the hands of police.

But satire is no longer legal.

    Damn scary when freedom of speech is banned, Leftist insist on freedom to agree with their positions and nothing more

    "It was a performance not too different from some actual Islamist rallies" You have to wonder, if he had actually BEEN a muslime as well as his wife would he have been treated the same way by the authorities?

      For most Canadians, we don't have "to wonder". We all know actual Muslims do not face Human Rights tribunals, etc. There is a double standard operating, entirely contingent on who is speaking (basically, it is racism of a Leftist variety). Zero equality under the law.

        well the closest they came was the whole Muslim Barber thing where they said they couldn't touch a woman, so the woman took em to Human Rights Tribunal. They settled rather than go through that Human Rights Tribunal stuff.

    Islam will never dominate . The apologists in europe are losing their voice as more people wake up to the intentions of Islam and its adherents .. Educate yourself about Islam and history and then educate those around you , ignore the noise on the left , those idiots will continue to spew their nonsense until the situation is beyond retrieval….

  • Toni_Pereira

    Poor naive soul! Didn't he knew that the only religions he is allowed to mock is Judaism and Christianity??

  • Edward Cline

    I hope the fellow got in a few words about Muslim genital mutilation, killing wives and daughters, and putting contracts out on apostates. And here I was beginning to think of Canada as a place to retreat to if freedom of speech is shackled here. Never mind.

    The US is next if we don't spread awareness of all of this taking place worldwide. Ever since Obama said that, "The future must not belong to the slanders of the prophet of Islam," there have been arrests or charges of "hate speech" all over Europe and other places. It's like as if all of this is happening under the orders of Obama. Of course with no doubt, he is the originator of all of this since he said it after the 2nd 9/11 attack, and therefore causing everyone to start witch-hunting critics of Islam. I would never have thought that the purpose of the 2nd 9/11 attack was to dismantle our freedom of speech. And unfortunately, al Qaeda has been very successful since they got Obama and others to do their work for them. That is probably the most incredible type of warfare they've ever done. As Sun Tzu once said, "The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting."

    They will be in trouble for 'offending' not 'being wrong'.

    There is a world of difference.
    What would have happened had they merely shown video of a real immam explaining it?

      Well, as long has we don't make them ugly or call them ugly names, is fine. I swear i will live to see the liberals endorsing that "etiquette" as within conformity with the modern values they so much preach…

        How do you describe this without calling it ugly?

          That squares up exactly with the immoral Qur'an and their false Allah and Muhammad.
          For expediency, Muhammad was Allah, and Allah was Muhammad.

          THE QURAN IS NO HOLY BOOK OF GOD: THE DESTRUCTION OF ISLAM WITH JUST ONE WORD

          If Allah is the supreme creator of the universe, He/She should attain the highest moral perfection—a goal all sane human beings strive to attain. Allah should be pure love, mercy, peace and goodness for all his creatures. God must hold all his/her creatures to equal esteem. He cannot be an immoral, irrational, violent evil being. If any words/teachings of the Quran fail to stand this ethical standard, its author, Allah, cannot be the God. Allah does not exist.

          God is not a racist, sexist

          God has created all human beings—men and woman, Muslim or non-Muslim, black or white—as equal. God is not a sexist, racist, male chauvinist pig. Men and women are equal in God’s eyes. Women are not created inferior to men to be the chattel or slaves of men. Women must have full rights and freedom as do men in God’s ideal society.
          –Robert Spencer

      Anyone who doubts those who sound the alarm about Islam and ignore the warnings of people like Geert Wilders need only go white chapel in England and see for themselves how we will be thanked for our passive attitude and our tolerance ….. It's no joke , there are places in the uk that Brits or even the police dare not go for fear of violence from muslims……

      • Lan Astaslem

        It's not just the UK. There are 'no-go zones' in France and other European countries where muslims are in control, enforcing sharia, and they are quite hostile to infidels.

    • JacksonPearson

      Here's my take;
      Yes, I dislike Islam. Yes, I will mock your pedophile prophet Mohammed as much as I want.
      No, I don’t care what you think or how offended you are. I'm an American, and am free to say what I want, when I want, no matter how much it offends your sensitivities.

      • Drakken

        Amen! I concur !

  • michaelharris99

    That is why we need to support Pamela Geller. She is 1000% right with her warnings. The left is amazing. Can you imagine if a conservative espoused behavior vs woman that Islamists utter on a daily basis

  • SoCalMike

    Law Enforcement, officialdom and media as well as military leadership all engage the PRETENSE that telling the truth about Islam causes jihad.
    This allows them to French kiss and Kitty Lick in the form of bribes and self-censorship the people they are supposed to be fighting and marginalizing.
    I'll never forget the utterly disgusting video of the DEARBORN police turning a blind eye to Arab Muslims stoning Christians.
    Parasites and mentally conformed cowards in action.

    WHAT WE ARE FIGHTING FOR
    THERE CAN BE NO LIFE WITHOUT LIBERTY AND NO LIBERTY WITHOUT LIFE

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

    These are powerful, timeless words. They stand as a beacon for all humanity. These words are not only the Constitution of the United States – they are the Constitution of ALL mankind. EVERY HUMAN BEING has the full Constitutional, human right to equality and unalienable rights – Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. There can be no life without liberty and no liberty without life. Freedom of speech and freedom of the press are the very essence of liberty. These freedoms are the very essence of humanity. They are the very essence of a meaningful life. The imposition of Islam totalitarianism will be the death knell of liberty.

    Today they are silenceing our voices, tomorrow they will hear the sound of rifles in response.

    Thank you for spreading the word about that protest. What happened was in sharp contrast with the way Muslim events are handled in Toronto. Last year at the Al Quds rally in front of the Ontario provincial parliament, Muslims were allowed to demonize Israel and praise Khomeini. The only person arrested was a Jewish guy , who brought his dog to the parliament park.

    Last September, there was a huge Muslim rally in front of the US consulate against the YouTube Mohammed movie. Muslims openly demanded introduction of blasphemy laws in Canada and some called for the execution of the makers of the movie.

    Of course, a street performance mocking Islam is a much worse crime… not.

    Maybe the Canadian police should check to see if their gonads are still attached to their bodies. If they are, they should take their pulse to see if they have a heart. Obviously, they have no brain.

  • Lan Astaslem

    It's like the wonderful and brave Pamela Gellar says, "Truth is the new hate speech." If that's how it is, I'm proud to be a 'hater'.
