OTTAWA – In a press conference on Tuesday, Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney claimed that “the Holocaust did not begin in the gas chambers, it began with words,” in defense of Bill C-51, a document consisting of thousands and thousands of words.
‘Words are the enemy of our treasured democratic system,” Blaney continued, speaking in what may or may not have been actual words. “We must, as a nation, be vigilant against the threat of words, which are basically all totalitarian jihadist propaganda.”
“That is why the government of Canada feels that this Bill C-51, which is made of words, offers the best defence against the evils inherent in the written and spoken word. By monitoring all assemblies and communications through untraceable CSIS channels, we can ensure that Canada remains free from totalitarian influences.”
Near the end of the press conference, Blaney announced the criminalization of several other known causes of the Holocaust, such as freedom of the press, voting, and breathing.
