DEFENDING THE WEST
Who polices the police?
Exclusive: Pamela Geller warns of cops enforcing Shariah via intimidation ... in Canada
I was set to speak at the Chabad Flamingo Synagogue in Thornhill, right outside of Toronto’s city limits, on May 13. But then two fascist police thugs, Chief Eric Jolliffe of the York Regional Police and Inspector Ricky Veerappan of the force’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Bureau, strong-armed Chabad Rabbi Mendel Kaplan into canceling my speech. Veerappan is, of course, a Muslim, using the full weight of Canadian (Western) law to enforce Islamic law (blasphemy laws under the Shariah).
Shelley A. Rogers of the York Regional Police’s Professional Standards Bureau explained: “As a police agency, we are committed to our values and that all members of York Regional Police, including our volunteers, are cognizant of our values and strive to uphold them on a daily basis.”
Veerappan announced: “If he did (host Geller), then we’d have to reassess our relation with (Kaplan). 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.”
Values? The “stuff” that I speak about includes gender apartheid, creed apartheid, Islamic Jew-hatred and honor killing. That runs contrary to their values? What exactly are their values? Imposing Shariah? Because that’s exactly what they’re doing. My value is life. What’s theirs?
The Ottawa Citizen said in an editorial: “The York Regional Police department should be ashamed. … Whether the job threat was real, and whether anyone agrees or not with Geller’s views, Veerappan’s conduct is appalling. Canadians expect police to respect Charter provisions protecting freedom of speech. They are not supposed to act as censors at the behest of a particular community.”
