A self-described “journalist & social commentator” known for posting angry video rants attacking Muslims and a range of other targets has been charged with committing a hate crime.

Kevin J. Johnston, a 45-year-old resident of Mississauga, Ont., posts videos on his website freedomreport.ca and to various social media platforms, and at one point had his accounts suspended by YouTube and Twitter.

Though he carried on fights with various public figures (and even ran for mayor of Mississauga in 2014) he focused much of his attention on schools, which he accused of “indoctrinating” students with Islamic ideology. In one video, he offered a bounty — first $1,000, later increased to $2,500 — to anyone who filmed a Muslim student in a Mississauga school “spewing hate speech during Friday prayers.”

In another, he said Liberal MP Iqra Khalid could get shot for introducing a motion condemning Islamophobia in the House of Commons, and said he’d be there to witness it with a “with a big, fat smile.”

  1. All speech is free speech.

    There is no such thing as HATE-Crimes in SPEECH, only in actions. STFU Federal and any other level of government.

    Laws are already in place to protect society from speech that:

    1: Incites violence against others, whomever they may be.
    2: Incites panic from others, whomever they may be.
    3: Speech that Defames (The verbal attack of defamation of a person or group of persons) has legal recourse in the court system.
    4: Speech that Libels (The written attack of defamation of a person or group of persons) has legal recourse in the court system.
    5: Speech that Slanders (The attacking speech of another person or group of persons while one is in defence) has legal recourse in the court system.

    NO OTHER LAWS SHALL BE REQUIRED OR CONSTITUTIONAL! Really a Canadian legal firm must take a class action suit to ANY AND ALL LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT in the name of Canadians (Charter of Rights and Freedoms) to fight HATE SPEECH LAWS! Certainly this could be crowd funded.

    If I say bad things  of say about skittles IT’S MY OPINION! Others can agree or not, can choose to debate me or not. BUT IT’S MY DAMN RIGHT TO SPEAK MY MIND! And in this case on the topic of skittles or anything else I may choose. If I violate any of the five points I made above then the law may have a case against me. If I do not then STFU and piss off in force-ably trying to repeal my rights to FREEDOM OF SPEECH!

    If a person wants to speak hate towards ME or my actual identifiers, sex, sexuality, creed, race, religion and/or politics etc, THEN HAVE AT IT!!!!!!!!!! I COULD NOT GIVE A F*&K! But if they incite violence against me and/or those like me, or they defame, libel or slander me or groups like me THEN DAMMIT THE LAW SHOULD FALL ON THEM LIKE A TON OF BRICKS!!!!

    F*&K YOUR IDENTITY POLITIC’s you lefties, liberals, sjws, BLM’s, Feminists, other pinko-commies and you skittles lovers.
