DEFEND CANADIAN BLOGGERS!
BUY THESE TEES!
All the details here @ Warman on the Stand:
On Wednesday, we’ll be having a little fundraiser here at SteynOnline for the Freedom Five – Ezra Levant, Kathy Shaidle, Kate McMillan and Mark and Connie at Free Dominion, the five Canadian bloggers being sued by serial plaintiff and Stormfront member Richard Warman. So I hope you’ll swing by between midnight Eastern and the following midnight Eastern and support a good cause. It’s impossible to take on the systemic abuses of the “human rights” apparatus in Canada – the drive-by verdicts of Commissar Hall at the Ontario commission, the entrapment and identity theft practised by Dean Steacy at the federal commission – without also taking on Richard Warman. He is the plaintiff on over half of all Section 13 cases in the history of the Canadian “Human Rights” Commission and on every case before the Commission in the last five years. Section 13 is Warman’s Law and the CHRC is the Warman Inquisition.
When he announced he was suing the Freedom Five, several commentators wondered why he was seeking only $50,000 in damages from the entire group – the defamation equivalent of small claims court. It seems reasonable to conclude that Mr Warman is not anxious to expose himself to discovery or cross-examination, and one can understand why. Given that he is Section 13’s all but lone plaintiff, he is, to put it at its mildest, an unconvincing witness. First, he explicitly denied, under oath, that he’d ever signed up at the Freedom Site message board, on the grounds that “I could access everything I needed to as a guest”. Two minutes later, when his secret identity of “Lucy” the hate-message poster was revealed in court, he revised his answer: “Sorry. I stand corrected.”
The Rest. Remember the Date Wednesday April 23rd Midnite to Midnite.
And don’t forget to buy a “Tanks” T-shirt to support the Freedom 5!
~ REMEMBER your actionables: write, call, speak out, letters to the editor (and remember to mention the url FreeMarkSteyn.com in all of them). The ‘Echo-Chamber’ effect of the blogosphere is not enough to bring about real-world change. It’s our country, and our freedom to lose. Get to work. And remember MP Keith Martin, too.

“I believe that human rights commissions are being sufficiently denormalized in the court of public opinion that it’s time to put pressure on politicians to do something about it. In other words, we should continue to expose the corrupt practices of the Dean Steacys and Richard Warmans of this world. But we should start to move the pressure to the people who are supposed to be in charge of the whole thing — and, in the case of the CHRC, that’s Rob Nicholson. I’m a Conservative partisan, but my love is not so blind that I can defend Nicholson’s inaction — though, given that a lawyer from Nicholson’s department is actively intervening for the CHRC in the Lemire case, I don’t think we can even say the Tories are neutral or inactive in this matter.”
