Michael Coren Interviews Paul Weston concerning His Free Speech Arrest


Leader of the Liberty GB Party Paul Weston was arrested Saturday as he campaigned for a seat in the European Parliament. His crime? Quoting Winston Churchill with a few critical sentences about Islam, something that is not allowed in today’s Muslim-subjugated Britain.

How shameful that the man who inspired Britain to save itself from the Nazi hordes can no longer be freely quoted in public. Now the fear of upsetting touchy Muslims shuts down any notice of the dangerous Islamic hordes inside the gates, brought by unwise immigration.

It’s good to see the affront to free expression get mainstream media attention, including the BBC, the Telegraph and the Daily Mail.

But only SunTV’s Michael Coren could muster an appropriate level of alarm. Remembering Churchill, Coren said, “He did save the world from racist tyranny and barbarism.”

So the late Prime Minister would seem to be worthy of respect in his homeland. But not so much in this case.

Here is the offending quote from Churchill’s book “The River War:”

How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property — either as a child, a wife, or a concubine — must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the faith: all know how to die but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.
