Canadian Pastor Artur Pawlowski was arrested again on Tuesday. This time it was at his home in Calgary for what law enforcement called “mischief.”
In a video posted on Artur Pawlowski TV, the pastor can be seen going completely limp as officers attempt to handcuff him and carry him off to jail.
“Don’t play these games for your videos. Okay, you can just stand up. We do this every time and you just go ‘dead fish’ on us,” one officer can be heard telling Pawlowski.
Pawlowski’s brother, David, can be heard shouting at the arresting officers, “He’s a preacher! What’s wrong with you! What’s wrong with you! You’re Nazis…This is a clergyman.”
While David called officers “freaking Nazis,” Artur remained quiet while limply laying on the stairs to his front door. “This is a clergyman. Treat him with respect you freaking Nazis,” David repeated over and over.
Another from Pawlowski’s lawn can be heard telling officers, “You guys sell your souls to the devil. You’re taking this country to hell.” They continued shouting at the officers, “It’s all going to come back on you…It’s criminal what you’re doing.”
Rebel News’ Ezra Levant reported that Artur’s son, Nathaniel, said that there was an undercover police van staked outside of their house. The pastor was on his way out the door to speak at the trucker protest blockade in Coutts, Alberta.
In a pre-recorded video message, the pastor said, “Hello friends, this is pastor Artur Pawlowski. If you’re watching this video right now that means I am in jail and they successfully arrested me. I don’t know what is going to happen to me. I don’t know what is happening outside, but I hope that you are still with me and you’re willing to support me to get me out of this terrible, hard situation. Please pray for me. Please support me if you can, and may God bless you for everything you’re doing to help me to get out there and be the light in this dark world.”
