Meanwhile, back in Canada....

"A Regina man accused of promoting hatred on the internet is welcoming the chance to air his views in court.

"Terry Tremaine, 59, who was at one time a math instructor with the University of Saskatchewan, was charged by the Regina police last week.

"Police allege that earlier in decade he used the internet to wilfully promote hatred against Jews.

"In an interview Monday, Tremaine said he will use the criminal proceedings as a platform for his views. He wants all Jews to leave Canada, calling them a 'destructive force' in society.

"'We want to see the issue of race put back on the table in this country. And this trial will do so,' he said. 'It will become a point of discussion in Canada again.'

"Tremaine's writings on the internet led to a complaint that took police 18 months to investigate.

"I was surprised that they charged me, because the trial will be a platform and I'm surprised that they took the chance of giving me such a platform,' he said."

The Islamic Republik of Holland is getting all upset about their surrender to Islam now? That horse left the barn a while ago - and they're still paying Muslim men big dollars to keep all of the wives they've imported constantly pregnant. They couldn't stop that demographic freight train even if their socialist elites wanted to, it's too late. They might as well party hearty til it's over.

How long 'til they're asking Canadian soldiers to liberate them again?

They'll soon be forced to cancel the traditional celebration of their liberation by Canadian troops because it's offensive to you know who.

Right you are philanthropist. In fact the horse left the barn long ago for all Eurabia and soon the lights will be going out as they return to the 7th century.

FC - so what is your point. The point is even this nutter should be entitled to the right of free speech.
