The anti-SOGI “counter protest” which was endorsed by all levels of government, workers unions and far left-wing activists groups gathered at the Vancouver Art Gallery on September 20, 2023. One lady is seen in a video posted online screaming into a mic whipping up the mob into chanting anti-police hate rhetoric.
“Cops out of schools” she starts repeating a few times. The rest of the pro-SOGI extremists crowd begins to repeat “Cops out of schools”, in between the crowds breathes the lady with the mic then says “‘Cause they’re ugly!” before starting to spread misinformation and disinformation accusing all cops of being killers and hating children.
“‘Cause they’re killers!” “‘Cause they hate my kids!” “All cops” “Allllllll cops”.
Last week on September 20, 2023, the 1 Million Person March 4 Children rumbled across Canada with a show of tens of thousands of supporters across the country against gender ideology being taught in schools. There was also “counter protest” side which got a boost by government, institutions, politicians and coordinated by labour unions.
When the 1 Million Person March 4 Children was announced government, institutions, politicians and labour unions quickly organized to label the protest as a bunch of transphobes filled with “hate” and their own “counter protest” as love and inclusion.
Canada’s Legacy media jumped on the bandwagon spreading the message from trans activists that Canadian parents are hateful tranphobes.
The day before the 1MillionPersonMarch4Children kicked off, on September 19, 2023, David Eby accused concerned parents of spreading “hate”, being “transphobic” and “fueled by far-right extremism”.
“On September 20, transphobic protestors will rally in communities across Canada and in BC against what they call “gender ideology in schools”. Their hate, fueled by far-right extremism, is not welcome in our province, and our Premier agrees.”
Unelected Premier Eby tossed together a word salad accusing concerned parents of using “misinformation and disinformation” to “attack” children and youth. Eby neglected to provide any examples of the “misinformation and disinformation” he claims is being weaponized and “fueled by far-right extremism”.
On September 8, 2023 the BC Teachers’ Federation wrote a letter to the BC NDP, BC United formally BC Liberals and the BC Green party demanding they parrot their stance and label concerned parents in BC opposed to SOGI 123 as haters.
“The BCTF is calling on all three major parties in BC to stand together against hate and in unequivocal support of SOGI resources and inclusive schools.”
“While we do not wish to give this ignorant campaign a platform or undeserved attention, we do believe that public statements of support for inclusive schools would go a long way to countering their harmful narratives.”
BC Federation of Labour rallied up troops using the same buzz words and labels to also protest against parents at the anti-SOGI 123 rally.
“The same forces who have been using fear, disinformation, conspiracy theories and hate to whip up anti-trans bigotry are now coalescing in hate rallies in communities throughout Canada and BC on September 20.”
BC Minister of Housing and MLA Ravi Kahlon was spotted in the crowd of unhinged “counter protesters” with a big smile on his face.
First up is the pro-SOGI/trans event with speeches beginning soon at the Vancouver Art Gallery steps at Robson Square. The events coincide with @UBCM happening in downtown Vancouver this week so spotting some politicians so far pic.twitter.com/xf8i6YlwOY— Lauren Collins (@laurenpcollins1) September 20, 2023
A couple days later on September 22, 2023 one cop is shot dead with 2 others injured while responding to a call in Coquitlam.
The National Police and Peace Officers’ Memorial Day took place on September 25, 2023 to pay respects and remember the officers that had their lives taken in the line of duty.
BC Rise reached out to all political parties in British Columbia with sitting Members of the Legislative Assembly along with a list of BC NDP Ministers, BC Labour Federation and the BC Teachers Federation about the video posted by The New Westminster Times for comments. BC Rise shared the video link in the correspondents.
The media contact for BC NDP Minister Ravi Kahlon replied saying they have forwarded our request to the NDP caucus for a response.
however non have responded before the time of publishing this article except from one.
John Rustad the MLA for Nechako Lakes and the leader of the Conservative Party of B.C. was the only other respondent to a request for a statement by BC rise.
Rustad replied promptly saying he will be releasing an official public statement today, September 25, 2023. Rustad said the video was disturbing.
“It shows organizers chanting hateful rhetoric against British Columbian law enforcement officers.” Rustad said in an email to BC Rise adding he will be asking the NDP government, CUPE, and the British Columbia Teachers Federation to apologize.
“Men and women in law enforcement risk their lives everyday to keep our communities safe. It is deeply upsetting to see this government and union backed public display of hate against British Columbia’s Police and RCMP officers.”
Here is his full response John Rustad said to BC Rise via email.
“The video footage from the counter-protest on September 20th from the New Westminster Times is disturbing. It shows organizers chanting hateful rhetoric against British Columbian law enforcement officers.
I am asking for an apology from the NDP government, CUPE, and the British Columbia Teachers Federation who endorsed the hateful counter-protest on September 20th.
Men and women in law enforcement risk their lives everyday to keep our communities safe. It is deeply upsetting to see this government and union backed public display of hate against British Columbia’s Police and RCMP officers.
Just yesterday, NDP politicians took to social media to publicly mourn RCMP Constable Rick O’Brien who made the greatest sacrifice while protecting Coquitlam residents, and lost his life to keep British Columbians safe.
Do these NDP politicians have no shame?
Our men and women in law enforcement are not “killers” and they do not “hate kids”, this language is hateful and wrong — and our government should not be condoning it.
It is is massively hypocritical to condone hate speech against law enforcement on Wednesday, and mourn the tragic death of an RCMP officer three days later on Saturday — yet, that is what BC NDP politicians have done.
British Columbians deserve better, and so do our Police and RCMP officers.”
