Internationally disgraced Calgary police chief Mark Neufeld finally showed his cards Wednesday morning in an interview with legacy media outlet Global News.

When asked to elaborate on the difference between the recent Palestinian demonstrations and months of anti-lockdown activism, he explained why anti-Israel hate marches have been allowed to continue without police interference: the police have judged them to be legal. According to reports, some in the legal march were calling for “death to Jews,” in a similar to other anti-Israel marches hosted in Canada.

The morning show host Dallas Flexhaug pointed out that the city has seen “a number of anti mask protests in the streets of Calgary over the past 14 months, more recently [there has been] demonstrations as well at raising awareness about the middle east conflict between Israel and Palestine. Are those gathering treated differently? Are they treated the same?” (Emphasis added).

Chief Neufeld responded, “Yeah, so its very similar but I think one of the key differences that its important for Calgarians to understand is that protests aren’t unlawful. So legitimate protests can go ahead and we find that the majority of the organizers try to work with police to do that in a way that actually minimizes the spread of COVID-19.”

“What we are seeing on the other side of that is basically outdoor social that are really masked as protests,” Neufeld explained.

In other words, how “legitimate” your protests is depends on the message of your protest.

This revelation comes days after Tim Stephens became the second Christian pastor arrested by the Calgary Police for organizing worship at his church. Stephens was the third pastor to be arrested in Alberta.

Despite hundreds of Muslims gathering at the Akram Jomaa Mosque on May 12 in brazen defiance of the law, no enforcement was conducted by police.

One law for Christians, a different law for Muslims.

Anti-Israel demonstrations have continued throughout Canada with no reaction from police services nationwide. A “super-spreader” rally in Toronto ended with a Jewish man being violently assaulted by a gang of protesters, with rallygoers cheering the violence.
