Gavin Boby spoke in in Ottawa tonight

Thanks to CAIR-CAN’s protest against this event, Gavin Boby’s talk in Ottawa tonight was well advertised – so, together with some 60-80 other Ottawans, I decided to go check it out.

And, we were not disappointed.

Though I missed the protesters outside, I spoke to others who got to see them being interviewed by CBC.  I guess that a February night in Ottawa with temperatures well below -20 degrees Celsius, most outdoor protests will tend to be brief and limited to the length of the interviews…

Mr. Boby spoke for an hour or so and then took questions from the audience.  I will write it all up for tomorrow, when I hope Vlad Tepes will have a teaser video up.

Let me just say that it was a very positive message of reasoned restraint and the rule of law to maintain civil society. He unequivocally condemned anger and hate as motivators. If you happen to find yourself in Montreal on Tuesday, the 5th of February, 2013 or in Toronto on Wednesday, the 6th of February 2013, it is definitely worth it to go hear Mr. Boby speak.

UPDATE: Here is Brian Lilley interviewing Gavin Boby:

    Is there any initiative to restrict Muslim free speech and peaceful practice of religion that you would not support short of rounding them all up and gassing them?

  2. EatShitBigot Says:

    Maybe its something inherent in your eastern european heritage that makes you despise freedom and love political oppression of hated minorities. Is that what it is? Why do you hate freedom so much?

  3. EatShitBigot Says:

    I guess this is form of anti-freedom lawfare that you heartily support. So lawfare has to be in support of discrimination against brown people in order to win your favour?

    Xanthippa:

    Gavin Boby makes a lot of sense.

    When forthright honesty has been disingenuously made illegal, one has no choice but to use whatever works within the shambles of a legal system which is all that remains to us.

    And to those who mewl self-righteously about the freedoms of Islamists, I will say only this:

    It is the epitome of self-sacrificial idiocy to preserve the freedoms of people who are willing to die to deprive you of yours.

    Xanthippa says: INDEED!!!

    I have not written up the whole talk yet because I was hoping to pair it with the video from the event – hopefully, it’ll be up soon!

    (While you were writing this comment, I was expressing the same sentiment – though more verbosely – in a new post…)

    P.S. – Did you notice how my pet troll went from accusing me of racist bigotry to suggesting that because of my racial origin, I cannot be a good person? I’m beginning to suspect he might be a ‘Poe’

      Xanthippa:

      Good call.

      You know, when someone fabricates an exaggerated parody of my opinion, and then rails obscenely against it – instead of calmly and rationally responding to what I actually said – he simply turns his own words into a total waste of effort which will only be ignored by any reasonable person.

      Sad.

      • EatShitBigot Says:

        You are sick bigot who does not deserve rational responses. You deserve to be mocked and ridiculed as the low-life piece of shit you are. You are an activist for the proposition that Muslims, no matter what their actual beliefs, should be discriminated against by the state when attempting to pursue the non-violent practice of their religion. When you are called out as a bigot your response is that “It is the epitome of self-sacrificial idiocy to preserve the freedoms of people who are willing to die to deprive you of yours.” It is clear as day that yuo believe that all Muslims are willing to die to deprive Canadians of their freedom and, as such, they should not be granted any “freedom”. Gavin Boby’s work has to do with blokcing mosques. Not from blocking Islamic extremists from building mosques, but using the state to discriminate against any and all Muslims from building a particular type of building. It is you who are the one that is intent on denying other people their freedom. I am only applying your advice when you say that it is idocy to give freedoms to those who are intent on taking it away from others. Therefore, you should be jailed immediately and denied all freedoms enjoyed by regular Canadians. You are just as fanatic as the worst Islamic extremist and you should be treated similarly.

        Xanthippa says:

        Well, actually, Boby advocates the use of existing laws to stop illegal Mosques or Mosques which are actually breaking zoning bylaws.

        He is very, very clear in his message that he advocates the rule of law and that the laws must apply to everyone equally.

        If a Mosque adheres to all the law and by-laws, there is nothing Boby will do to challenge it or its construction.

        This is a very important distinction because the only Mosques he is even attempting to stop are thos whose members have already shown that they are unwilling to follow the rule of law: this makes them not law-abiding citizens, but law-breakers who rely on the fear of being labeled ‘racist’ or ‘Islamophobic’ to prevent the authorities from applying the law to them as they would to anybody else.

  5. EatShitBigot Says:

    “It is the epitome of self-sacrificial idiocy to preserve the freedoms of people who are willing to die to deprive you of yours.” – So you are assuming that each and every person who wishes to build a mosque anywhere in Canada is a violent terrorist intent on murdering me and my family? You see, this is why you are a repulsive bigot. It is sad joke to say you are in favour of freedom in any way. You are an aoppresive totalitarian loving monster. And a sickening bigot.

  6. EatShitBigot Says:

    Codeslinger – since you have decided that the Canadian state should actively deprive all Muslims of any and all freedoms based entirely on the fact that they are Muslims…. don’t you think a solution is in order that is a little more….. final…. than just creating non-Muslim enclaves? Shouldn’t we just be rounding them all up and finding somewhere to imprison them? After all, each and every one of them are out to slaughter all of my loved ones? It would be teh epitome of self-sacrificial idiocy if we didn’t find a final solution to the Muslim problem, wouldn’t it?

  7. EatShitBigot Says:

    “P.S. – Did you notice how my pet troll went from accusing me of racist bigotry to suggesting that because of my racial origin, I cannot be a good person? I’m beginning to suspect he might be a ‘Poe’…”

    And just because you seem to be too dull to catch on, that comment was meant to be, as your little wikipedia article says: “an exaggerated parody of extremism.” I am parodying the fact that you paint all muslims with the broad brush of fundamentalist extremism by doing the same to you. You actually think that I think eastern europeans are inherently bigoted just because you are a repulsive bigot? I am half polish for fucks sake. Although it says a lot about you that you don’t understand that is a parody.

    It was great that the event proceeded smoothly and the fanatics were unable to cancel it. I even admire (to a degree) the protesters who braved the cold to make their point. In Toronto the hall was packed. Although a protest was planned, nobody showed up despite the fact that the weather was much warmer than in Ottawa.

    To the troll with the unpronounceable obscene nickname: your reference to the bigotry of Eastern Europeans is highly amusing. Unlike your ancestral land Poland, which was spared from Muslim invasion by Russia, most of the peoples in Eastern Europe have first-hand experience with Islam. The Balkan countries have been subjected to Turkish genocide for centuries. Unlike many gullible Canadians and Americans, they can see through the Islamic lies.

    The barbaric nature of Islam was on full display in Yugoslavia in the 1990’s – the Bosnian government proovoked a civil war by attacking their own people and inventing the fake genocide. But the West chose to take the side of the Bosnian Muslim murderers. The same happaned later in Kososvo, where the Muslim drug-traffic Mafia used the Islam-loving Clintons to establish its own state. Now both Bosnia and Kosovo are failed states.

    Last year in Toronto a large crowd of “pious Muslims” gathered to demand blasphemy laws. This demonstartion of fanatics asking for barbaric sharia was totally ignored by the mainstraem media. It was inconvenient to show a crowd of screaming savages (many of whom didn’t even speak English), who want to destroy the freedom of speech in Canada. Here you can see some of those “lovely” poeple:

    You may like them, but having them in control over a neighbourhood is not something that most Canadians want to see. Where are the “moderate” Muslims?

    Xanthippa says:
    True – and thanks!

  9. EatShitBigot Says:

    Blogwrath – that’s very classy fo you to dive right into genocide denial. Though I’m not sure why Muslim eliminationists like you try to deny the genocide in Bosnia rather than just celebrate it, as is clearly your true feeling on the subject.

  10. EatShitBigot Says:

    “Last year in Toronto a large crowd of “pious Muslims” gathered to demand blasphemy laws. This demonstartion of fanatics asking for barbaric sharia was totally ignored by the mainstraem media”

    These fanatics are no different from you and Xanthippa – a bunch of bigoted freaks demanding that others have their rights stripped away. You all deserve each other.

  11. EatShitBigot Says:

    I note from your blog, Blogwrath, that you are also a pretty extreme homophobe. You have picked the right blog to come to – Xanthippa’s favourite hobby is hating and oppressing minorities. You should fit in just fine here.

  12. EatShitBigot Says:

    Hmm….. seems Blogwrath is also an explicit Christianist who believes that the Canadian state should actively favour Christians and discriminate against non-Christians: “Unfortunately, nowadays every cult (be it Wicca, Voodoo or Islam) has many more privileges than Christianity.”

    Blogwrath – can you explain exactly how you are different from Al Qaeda. Because personally, I really don’t see any difference.
