Literature

Author Paris Dipersico has been discharged from Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital after he was dragged into a forest and beaten unconscious by two male assailants Wednesday morning. Police said the victim’s hands were bound and Det. Sgt. Anthony Odoardi said they are confident the attack was targeted due to the controversial nature of his book Wake Up Call.

Co-author Gabrielle Dipersico’s home was broken into just a day after the assault and they have received death threats by Muslim extremists for insulting Islam. The Police are currently conducting an investigation along with a safety plan for the authors.

Wake Up Call has angered several religious groups, family members and it was rejected by over a dozen publishers for being "extremely controversial" and "inflammatory."

What good has come out of religion? Death, destruction, greed, and the list just goes on and on and on.

Nuke the cube, end terrorism.

So, by dragging him into the woods and beating him up they prove his point.

Need more information
This press release needs more information. Is this the same event detailed on the Halton police site - 11-138056?

Tha Book
So where and how do we see this book? What is the synopsis of Wake Up Call and who published it? Its a shame that books can get you killed but some people just cant take the exposure of light.

Agent Provocateur
Since they didn't kill him, I bet you this was done by somebody []aid to make it look like Islamic extremists...so they could sell Canada on the idea they need to clamp down on civil rights like they did in America. Black Water thugs for hire...at the G-20 it was the same. Just another rouse...

I followed the link left in the comments to the Halton police website and the dates seem to match but it doesn't mention anything about being bound or about being about the book. It reads more like a crime of opportunity for both the assailants and the victim. Sounds like any other mugging only this time it took place against someone whose book is #996,216 on the top sellers list at Amazon.

I hope he/they sell thousands of more books because of this. It sounds like they need to get it out there.

Would your response be the same if it were two jewish guys beating up a neo nazi author? Im just testing most posters limits to their outrage at beating up authors. Just food for thought. Have a think about it.

My read of the article was that is was two extremists beating up an opposing extremist. Needs further investigation so ill hold back on a decision until i have more facts. Though assault and kidnapping is a serious crime and i hope they get the guys who did it.

Naive Extremists
I find it funny that the extremists think that the silent majority is not going to fight back against them. You can only prod a bear so long before it fights back. Canadians have been awfully tolerant of intolerance. My guess is that this tolerance's time is just about over.

Very bad he got beat up but this is the best thing that could have happened to him....and then I see comments on how judgemental people are....too bad those rules never applied to us when we stole this land from the natives....but go on pretend you're not racist.

My goodness
Giovani Fereira. My goodness...

Why is it racist to think that a person shouldn't be sent to the hospital merely for what they write? You yourself have written something offensive and judgmental. Is your ignorant hatefulness so much better than that of a racist?
