Peter LaBarbera Arrested For Spreading Hate In Canada, Declares “This Is Not Democracy”

Peter-LaBarbera-arrestedJust days after antigay “activist” and conservative megaphone Peter LaBarbera was questioned by Canada’s Border Patrol officers, the 51-year-old hate monger has been arrested on the University of Regina campus for trespassing and ignoring the country’s law against “hate propaganda.”

LaBarbera tweeted earlier this week that Canadian Customs searched his laptop and phone to gather evidence against him — he was rightfully believed to have been entering Canada on a mission to spread hate propaganda, which includes any number of the antigay messages he’s been known to spread.

On Monday afternoon, LaBarbera and fellow “activist” Bill Whatcott were asked several times by local police to leave the University of Regina campus and, at 12:30pm, were taken into custody after ignoring the orders. Both men were said to have distributed “graphic” anti-abortion pamphlets while on campus.

Both men have been released and are scheduled to appear in court on May 26. Watch their arrest below as I play the world’s tiniest violin:

      Being arrested for tresspassing after refusing to leave when repeatedly asked has nothing to do with Democracy. You have the right to say what you want, but don’t expect others to have to listen, not on private property buddy. Take your hatemongering home.

      I guess he isn’t smart enough to realize he isn’t in the USA any more. Guess he has to realize that he has to follow the LAWS of the country he visits.

      It is clear in the video he planned to get arrested. It’s all a publicity stunt. I’m sure donations are pouring into his organization as we speak. He needs to be “renditioned” to an Arab country and water boarded for a few weeks.

      The problem is that there are many ignorant bigots who don’t know basic geography and will blame Obama for suppressing his free speech.

      “Oh, oh I’m sorry, I thought this was America!”

      “Sir this is Canada.”

      Not everything has to be a democracy, not even within a democracy. You don’t deserve to have a vote every time you want to break a law that’s already been passed by a democratic legislature.
