Earlier in April, five police officers and one health official showed up at a Church in Calgary, Alberta, Canada on Good Friday for a COVID lockdown inspection but were driven out by its pastor, Artur Pawlowski, who was from Poland and has lived through communism.
He drove them off the church property calling them communists and Nazis.
Well, the police returned again this past Sunday with more officers, you can’t have too many armed officers when dealing with an unarmed pastor, and a health inspector claiming she had a warrant.
Pastor Pawlowski refused to let them in a second time.
When the health inspector insisted she was just there to talk, Pastor Pawlowski stated if she wants to talk, then make an appointment during the week and don’t show up during a service with armed police.
The Blaze provides the details:
“And they did it again! Today, the Gestapo Attacked our Church Again,” Pawlowski wrote on Twitter about the latest harassment by Canadian authorities. “History is being repeated in front of our eyes! Another sad day for Freedom and democracy!”
Pawlowski shared a video of the tense confrontation with law enforcement in Canada where he stood his ground once again. The public health inspector hands Pawlowski a court order that she claims grants them access into the church, but he immediately responds, “I’m not really interested in what you have to say.”
“I do not cooperate with Gestapo,” Pawlowski tells the health inspector. “I do not talk to the Nazis. You came in your uniforms like thugs. That’s what you are. Brownshirts of Adolf Hitler. You are Nazi Gestapo, communist, fascists. I do not cooperate with Nazis. Talk to my lawyer. You are not allowed here, you are not welcomed here, and I’m not going to cooperate with Gestapo like you, okay? So is that fair enough for you?”
In defence of the police, most didn’t look like they wanted to be there. Undoubtedly, they were just obeying orders.
