WATCH: Canadian journalist ARRESTED for assault despite not touching a single person

Canada tends to lead the charge when it comes to woke nonsense. Apparently, the country deems asking questions a form of assault, even when the person making the inquiries is a reporter.

Last week, Rebel News reporter David Menzies was arrested by an RCMP officer after he attempted to ask Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland questions regarding why Canada has opted to omit the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps from its terrorist list.

“She could’ve ignored them, but instead, a bunch of her bodyguards jumped him and charged him with assault,” Rebel News founder Ezra Levant tells Alex Stein.

In the video footage, one can clearly see Menzies approaching Freeland with a microphone. However, he never touches her or even blocks her path. Menzies manages to ask two questions, both of which go unanswered, before a group of officers forcefully grab him and push him against the wall claiming he’s under arrest for assault.

“How am I under arrest? You bumped into me,” Menzies said to one officer as handcuffs were placed on his wrists.

“You pushed into me, sir,” the officer responded — a textbook example of gaslighting.

“He never touched her!” says Alex in disbelief. “Is verbal assault a charge?”

“In the end, they dropped the charge,” says Levant. However, “the weirdest part is [the cops] drive away but they don't take him to the police station; they just dump him off in some school parking lot and say find your own way back.”

"I was a super pro-back the blue guy," but after "what I've seen...they are testing my pro-cop ideology," he sighs.

Clearly, many share Levant's sentiments, as the video has now garnered several million views. Check it out for yourself below.
