Are You In Favor Of Free Speech In Canada? Then You Must Be A Swastika Carrying Nazi

The so-called anti-Fascist forces here in the U.S., otherwise known as Antifa, likewise like to shut down free speech, often with violence, and usually with threats of violence

(Daily Caller[2]) Ryerson University canceled a panel Wednesday dedicated to discussing the silencing of free speech on college campuses, citing “campus safety.”

The Canadian school canceled “The Stifling of Free Speech on University Campuses,”[3] an Aug. 22 panel featuring three doctors and a pro-free speech journalist, citing a prioritization of “campus safety” over free speech “in light of recent events,” according to correspondence obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Social justice activists set up a Facebook page entitled “No Fascists in Our City!”[4] to protest the event. The page’s header image depicted a swastika crossed out.

Got that? If you want free speech, then you’re Hitler.

“[Progressive activists] were calling me a Nazi, a fascist, and an anti-Semite,” Dr. Gad Saad, a Concordia University marketing professor and one of the panelists, told TheDCNF. “I’m Jewish. So, they’ve lost the plot. It’s a form of lunacy that’s difficult to diagnose.”

The organizer is named Sarina Singh, not a name typically associated with Nazis.

Saad noted that people who express incorrect opinions get beheaded in the Middle East. He said that while the West was not yet at that stage, activists could “do the next best thing” and go after a speaker’s livelihood, reputation, and platform to speak. He suggested that “cowardice is the eighth deadly sin,” and that universities did not possess the “effort, courage, and testicular fortitude” to stand up to those trying to silence speech.

“You never pacify thuggery. You don’t pacify someone who’s trying to rape you. These people are intellectual terrorists. They’re rapists of truth,” Saad added.

Yes, they are. What was this really about?

“Fascists are planning to meet on August 22nd at Ryerson University to discuss how to avoid what they call ‘SJW’ Culture,” the protest description reads. “Tickets are being sold for $20 and frankly it makes us virulently ill … Considering the rise of Nationalism here and abroad we need to show these people and their guests that we will not tolerate their backward nonsense in our city.”

In other words, the so-called anti-Fascists were using fascist methods to shut down a conference on free speech that shows how people can use free speech to avoid being destroyed by Social Justice Warriors. They should probably read Vox Day’s SJWs Always Lie[5]. It explains how to deal with these SJW Antifa free speech haters, but, of course, the school has fallen into the trap of the violence exclusion, whereby they shut down free speech due to threats of violence.

“Apparently supporting freedom of speech makes you a Nazi these days,” Saad told TheDCNF. “I think our existence is now hate speech … that I exist as an independent person who spews his thoughts freely is an affront to those who wish to control me … Orwell couldn’t have come up with the realities that we’re facing today.”

Well, if you have what is considered Wrongthink by the political Left, which is really just as authoritarian as Nazis and other fascists, they’ll do all they can to shut you down.
