Canada: Violent Trans Activists Assault Peaceful Protester While Cops Stand By, Smirking

Canada: Violent Trans Activists Assault Peaceful Protester While Cops Stand By, Smirking

“When pressed to respond, police officers suggested that he might have cut his own nose — or that he had incited the trans activists to violence by showing up with a sign that they did not like.”

Chris Elston, a Canadian man who goes by “Billboard Chris,” was physically assaulted by crazed transgender activists while police stood around seemingly doing nothing but smirking as a crime was committed in their presence. The police reportedly went so far as to tell Chris that he brought the violent attack on himself.

David Strom over at Hot Air has some background on Chris:

Billboard Chris is on a quiet mission.

A father of two girls in Canada, he is worried about the effects that gender ideology is having on both his children and his society. In response he has gone on a simple, quiet, and to the trans community very threatening mission: he visits cities in North America and walks around wearing a sandwich board that simply reads: “children cannot consent to puberty blockers.”

He doesn’t shout. He doesn’t challenge trans activists to arguments. He simply walks around with his sandwich board. He occasionally gets media interviews and he is all over social media, but he doesn’t confront anybody.

Any deviation from, doubt about, or even basic questioning of the trans agenda is not permitted, so of course, radical trans activists violently assaulted the peaceful man whose only goal is to stop the chemical, physical, and sexual mutilation of healthy children.

The Daily Wire reports:

Canadian police officers appeared to simply watch — and one appeared to smile — as radical trans activists approached and then eventually assaulted a lone counter-protester wearing a sandwich board sign that read, “Children can’t consent to puberty blockers.”

Video of the incident was shared by Chris Elston (@BillboardChris), who said that he was assaulted twice at the protest, and that police did nothing. When pressed to respond, police officers suggested that he might have cut his own nose — or that he had incited the trans activists to violence by showing up with a sign that they did not like.

For its part, the Vancouver Police Department is reportedly investigating the incident.

Chris responded to the outpouring of support on Twitter:

Coulda been worse.
The cops coulda had horses.

It’s Canada! For sooo long we thought of the Anglosphere countries as the defender of the rights of man. What has the Commonwealth done? Lock downs, forced incarceration, concentration camps for the uninnoculated., arrest of pastors, freezing of bank accounts, loss of property, distortion of the news, intimidation…. how absolutely repressive and so … Soviet. New Zealand, Australia, Canada…. one would almost think some Cuban Communist takeover… here looking at you Justina….

Oh… and who supported if not demanded crushing the truckers. Good old (really old) FJoe Biden…. hero of 81 million voters.

So disheartening that centuries of history turns out to be a thin veneer rubbed off when the chance came to fully seize power. I would wonder… but the majority of Canadians want this and support this.

And if he had actually fought back you can rest assured that HE would have been arrested on the spot.

How does one say, “I was just following orders” in Canadian English?

    “I was just following orders, eh?”

    How far we have come from Sargeant Preston of the Northwest Mounted Police and his lead dog Yukon King. Where is Dudley Do-Right when we need him?

      Yeah, a couple leaps too far to follow.

      Trying to call back to Andy Ngo, who distributes stuff recorded on the spot, who’s presence gets the protesters looking for attention all wee-wee’d up, who gets assaulted on film amidst “protests”, and so on. Not his interviews of book. The first-hand, on the ground, full-record videos the peaceful protesters object to so much. When they’re not giving him a concussion, that is.

      The videos already out there from this event look just like an Andy Ngo first person report from some Antifa thing. There’s also a Libs of TikTok flavor to these things — “How dare you publish unedited, what we said or did?”

      It seems like many of these “protests” are less media-ops or propaganda events for the movement, and more revivals or rallies, reinforcing the already converted. (And to intimidate the non-converted. Not trying to raise an issue, let alone convince anybody an y more.)

      You can’t have someone wearing a sign saying “Satan Be Alone” at your evangelical retreat — it sours the vibe. It’s the wrong kind of talking in tongues when someone starts reciting Latin backwards. Sammich sign-guy’s recording, and the spasms about it are a lot like what attaches to Andy Ngo.

We are what remains of a constitutional republic, under attack from within and surrounded by dictatorships to the north and south. Interesting times.

A couple of decades ago, when I was still working, I considered retiring to Vancouver Island. I am very grateful that I finally decided against that.

admire his courage–what the “mostly peaceful” activists seem to have forgotten (or likely don’t care) is that the net is forever–would also figure that many normal citizens are keeping track–sometimes karma needs a little nudge

TheOldZombie | April 2, 2023 at 8:02 pm

What’s funny is all the leftists who ignore how the trans person got into the chest and face of Chris even almost stopping him from turning and yelling at him at the same time.

But Chris puts his hands up to move the person away and he’s the one who started it….

    venril in reply to TheOldZombie. | April 3, 2023 at 1:46 pm

    The yelling was bad enough, but getting sprayed in the face by that insane screaming… sheesh

    BierceAmbrose in reply to TheOldZombie. | April 4, 2023 at 5:07 pm

    More than “got into.” Looks like blond-screecher had zir’s body on him. — Battery.

    Meanwhile, inside personal space, closing distance, from two sides at once. — Assault.

    And intimidation. This is being infested with Covington Kid level editing.

We are at war. Prepare accordingly.

Canada is not a civilized nation today.

Take not it wasn’t long ago that it was THE civilized nation.

It is a warning for how quickly things could change.

Massinsanity | April 2, 2023 at 10:10 pm

From the video… The blonde’s testosterone was raging and “her” voice was deep baritone highlighting the pure insanity of the “trans women are women” crowd.

BierceAmbrose | April 2, 2023 at 10:11 pm

I’ve already seen craftily edited clips of the videos, reminding me of the insta-kerfuffle around protester who can’t take a fall, at one of the riots in Buffalo a few years back.

As we have learned from The Covington Kid, if not yet from Escorted Q-Anon Shamen, you wanna see the whole thing to know what’s actually happened.

In my home berg, back during peak Antifa, we had a — one — kid, “citizen journalist”, walking around publishing only long-form videos of the events. His vids were way more illuminating than any of the clipped agenda-fodder.

Frightening demonstration of the reality of depending on the police when they have long since been compromised as these so obviously have been.

Based on their behavior there is every chance that they are not just supporters but are trans themselves.

I was fortunate enough to have recorded a IWF forum lead by Nicole Solas and Billboard Chris was the featured speaker. This man knows a lot about everything regarding grooming and the mutilation to NOT be able to change genders.

Wow, you call the cops with maybe the echo of a nostalgic hope of Clint Eastwood showing up, and you get a teenage, east meets west, Cagney and Lacey.

Why shouldn’t these trans thingies be angry? They realized too late they allowed some simpering head doc to talk them into getting old King George lopped off.

The far left will gladly support killing you. They look forward to being guards in the new concentration camps.

I am not sure the Canadian LEO are committed to their statement about it being Ok to initiate violence against someone b/c the person who was attacked instigated the violence via a visual medium. What if someone decides to become violent by merely observing a uniformed LEO? Will these Cops remain so sanguine when that particular individual chooses to initiate violence in a place, manner and degree of their own choosing in that encounter? Gonna perfect a far different philosophy will be employed by Canadian Cops on that day.

Anyone remember the video of two antifa wankers physically blocking two frail elderly seniors from crossing the street to enter a PPC rally in Canada?

Yeah, I was there for that. Less than thirty feet away from that incident were over a dozen cops standing and watching the whole thing. When Maxime Bernier arrived, he had to be rushed into the venue surrounded by Proud Boys because the antifa crowd mobbed him while, again, the police stood by and did nothing.

The police in Canada are, and have been for decades, armed agents of the state. They exist to suppress opposition to the government.

    Okay, so (donning my editor’s tiara), next time you are there, film it and give it to us to run! Or tweet it. Or get it out there some how. This kind of thing won’t stop until they are embarrassed, as we see in this story. After it went viral, the Vancouver PD suddenly cared (at least until the next news cycle).

Billboard Chris’ idea of having “intelligent conversations” with Leftists isn’t “audacious,” it’s unrealistic.

After the record turnout of black voters in Georgia’s 2022 primary voting, some Dem hack said “Voter suppression isn’t about preventing people from voting”, providing proof positive that the Left isn’t interested in having intelligent conversations about anything.

    Billboard Chris’ idea of having “intelligent conversations” with Leftists isn’t “audacious,” it’s unrealistic.

    perhaps–he was presenting, in a civil manner, a counterpoint to the trans mental illness

    regardless, he does not deserve to be physically assaulted for peacefully demonstrating his viewpoint

    lord, he has restraint–would have changed that blonde punk into a soprano in an instant

I wouldn’t advocate violence, but if a masked mob happens to pull these police officers, their supervisors, the police chief, and the commissioners out of their cars and beat them senseless unconscious, they brought it on themselves.

I have some important constructive criticism for him. If he goes up to a police officer, tells them, he’s been assaulted, that he has video of the assault, and then the officer asks to see his video — he needs to show her the damn video!! To say, no, filming her reaction is more important right now! He is his own worst enemy, as we all are.

For God’s sake, he’s done this before then. It’s gotcha journalism. It lends a certain gameplaying attitude that could be part of his problem. It’s far more important to fight actual crimes against us than “thoughtcrimes” and “smirks.”

Sometimes we make ourselves a bigger target with a bad attitude that accuses officers of ill treatment when they haven’t even done anything.

I was disappointed at seeing this video. Yes, assault may have occurred. But I didn’t actually see it. What I did see was someone in supposed to root for, who was asked by police officer to see his video, whom he asked what she would do about it, who haven’t seen the video yet. I don’t know this guy. This is the first time I’ve ever heard about him. And he’s a smart ass to a cop, saying he wanted to film her smirking, rather than allowing her to see his video of an alleged crime.
