Bus driver compares homosexuals to Nazis

Bus driver compares homosexuals to Nazis

Canadian bus driver Jesse Rau, above, is a committed Christian … and a blatant liar!

The Calgary transit employee is now in search of a new job after being sacked for posting Nazi-related content on his Facebook page.

The story begins with Rau’s false claim that he was being “forced” to drive a bus decked out in rainbow colours to celebrate this summer’s Calgary’s Pride Week.

Never happened.

The transit authorities said this week in a letter terminating Rau’s employment:

You repeatedly suggested that The City was requiring you to operate the Pride Bus and that you would lose your job if you refused. No one ever asked you to operate the Pride Bus and you were specifically advised that you would not be assigned the Pride Bus as part of your work.

The letter made clear that he was being fired for posting Nazi-related content on his Facebook page.

You identified yourself as a Calgary Transit employee in connection with your Facebook profile page where you have posted Nazi-related content which is abhorrent and contrary to the values The City promotes.

But Rau said his post did not support Nazism, only that he had shown a rainbow flag with a swastika in the centre and the word “homofascism” written on it.

Sounding the “persecuted Christian” horn he said:

If you speak against this, what I call a sexual ideology, you will be destroyed, and that’s what I’ve experienced.

Rau made public his refusal to drive the bus just before the August 28 launch of Pride Week.

He said his work record was good enough for him to be considered for a promotion prior to the controversy which erupted which he expressed his opinion on homosexuality on social media and refused to drive the bus.

Rau said he was ordered to stop posting those views on Facebook and faced a five-hour “interrogation” by his employer before being fired.

During a press conference Friday, Doug Morgan, director of Calgary Transit said he could not comment on specific employee matters but did address the employee code of conduct.

Morgan said when an employee is accused of violating policy, Calgary Transit always holds an investigative meeting and the union gets involved.

Friday, the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 583 confirmed a grievance had been filed on Rau’s behalf.

At the time of his dismissal, Rau was just shy of passing his one-year probation, he said.

Throughout the controversy, Rau has been backed by his pastor, loudmouthed street preacher Artur Pawlowski, above, who’s run afoul of city bylaws.

On a Facebook page calling for public support for Rau, Pawlowski said:

Everyone that wants to stand in solidarity with Jesse Rau and his family is welcome to join a special rally which will be held at City Hall on October 10, 2015 at 12:30 PM.

Anyone interested in helping Jesse Rau with expenses related to job loss and hiring a lawyer can contact Jesse’s pastor Artur Pawlowski who will be working with Jesse on this issue. Alternatively people wanting to hand their financial support to Jesse personally can do so at the October rally.

I will leave you with this thought, yesterday they were coming for the politicians, judges, and doctors today they are coming for the bus drivers, clerks and bakers. Believe me, I grew up in a country like ours has become, and I can tell you tomorrow the communists/fascists/dictators are coming for you. Will you let them?

    He’d know all about homosexuality, as would his pastor 🙂

    Still, he doesn’t need a job anyway…
    “Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

    Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”

    (At the same time, if he doesn’t find a new job, he should die: 2 Thessalonians 3:10).

    More liars for jebus, I am sure that if he ever existed he would be turning in his tomb.

    “Canada is founded on principles that recognize the supremacy of God.” So says their constitution. They are further unburdened by the right to free speech that plagues their southern neighbor. Their southern neighbor has a constitution founded not by God but by “We the People.”

    “……yesterday they were coming for the politicians, judges, and doctors today they are coming for the bus drivers, clerks and bakers. ” Weird. Who are they? Whom are they coming for? Have they already “come for” the politicians, judges and doctors.”” Perhaps I am just not paying attention.

    To Broga:
    It looks like he’s comparing himself to Martin Niemoller.

    That is really tempting hubris. Still, Artur Pawlowski:perhaps it’s just a conditioned response.
    Does anyone else find SS uniforms just a little bit over the top?

    Why can’t the pious be satisfied with keeping their stupidy to themselves and let the rest of us get on with our lives unmolested? Serious question … requiring a serious answer.

    And for those who cannot mind their own business please be assured that I will do every goddamn thing in my power to make you wind your necks back in and force shitty religious childishness out of the public square. If you obey the law and keep your praise of your god to yourself and like minded fools, they you will be ok. Try to force it on me then you will get trouble. I will make you shut up. And there are millions like me, newly awakening to the theocratic threat, to discipline you and force your submission. Christian muslim jew … it matters not. You are fucking up the world and I am here to kick your collective asses back into line. Its over god botherers .. time for you to shut the fuck up,

    Also a lying hypocrite as anyone who has read his book o’BS knows that the rainbow is a sign from his psychotic genocidal imaginary fiend!

    @Vanity Unfair: Thanks for the Niemoller information. Regarding the Nazi uniforms I think some of the royal family have been known to try them out.

    The reason the pious won’t be satisfied with keeping their stupidity to themselves and let the rest of us get on with our lives unmolested: the want their righteousness to be acknowledged, like children sometime want attention.
