BUSINESSES THREATENED!!! COWARDLY
OWNERS COMPLY. By J.J.

If you fold like a cheap umbrella when it comes to
free speech and expression, be prepared to get rained on. Several
striking similarities exist between the cancellation of Ukrainian-born
pianist Valentina Lititsa’s performance at Roy Thomson Hall and the
cancellation of the Beaches Blues Fest at the Melange Restaurant (172
Main St.), the Hirut Café and Restaurant (2050 Danforth Ave.) and the
Lake House Bar and Grill (2252 Queen St. E.):
All these establishments were made aware of political opinions that
some people didn’t agree with.
All of these locations were pressured by anti-free speech elements to
shut down shows because of the political opinions of entertainers or
Roy Thomson Hall, the Melange, the Hirut and the Lake House not only
lost the respect of freedom-loving Canadians, but they can all now be
counted on to do the bidding of the terrorists.
All four operations allowed the terrorists to win.
All of them now realize the unfortunate truth that NOT supporting free
speech and expression was a terrible response to the threats, and they
will now be losing customers. Roy Thomson Hall had been sold out, but
was only half-full because people disapproved of the cancellation of
Valentina Lisitsa due to politics.
(NOTICE: The word "terrorist" is not
referring to violence, but harassment.)
