Canadian Jewish groups join censorship brigade to silence Marc Lemire and Freedomsite
On January 27, 2006 several Canadian Jewish groups have applied for “interested party” status at the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal hearing against Marc Lemire. This case involves the Canadian “Human Rights” Commission alleging Marc Lemire could “expose” certain privileged groups to “hatred and/or contempt” by material contained on the websites: The Freedomsite (http://www.freedomsite.org), Freedomsite Message Board and Stormfront.org Message Forum.
The groups that are applying for Interested Party Status are:
Canadian Jewish Congress
for Human Rights of B’Nai Brith
of Simon Wiesenthal Centre for Holocaust Studies
These censorship driven groups, are requesting to participate in the constitutional issues raised by Marc Lemire as well, as act like prosecutors and cross-examine witnesses. In previous hearings against Ernst Zundel, where the Jewish groups had Interested Party status, all they did was agree with each other on every motion. One might wonder what possible purpose they could serve to further this case, other than costing the respondent additional money and prolonging the hearing. A decision on if the Jewish groups can intervene is expected soon.
History of the case
Back in 2004, the Canadian Human
Rights Commission (
The two separate, but identical, complaints named Marc Lemire in one and the second named “The Freedomsite” which was listed as “www.freedomsite.org” and “chat.freedomsite.org”
The complaints surround posts to the Freedomsite Message Board, as well as a post by Kevin Strom entitled “Aids Secrets.” After the Canadian “Human Rights” Commission investigated the complaint, additional grounds were added, which included an article by the veteran journalist and WWII war hero Doug Collins.
After a well written legal motion by famous attorney Barbara Kulaszka, the complainant withdrew his complaint and the case against the “The Freedomsite” was quashed. In January of 2006, Marc Lemire became the first person in Canadian history to ever win a Section 13 complaint under the Canadian Human Rights Act.
The case against Marc Lemire continues to progress it’s way to the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal. The tribunal is a farce that poses as a court, where truth is no defence. Your intent is no defence. Your motivation is no defence. In fact, there are no listed defences for a private citizen. Yes that’s correct. ZERO defences!
While the tribunal has a legal like atmosphere, although it really has no rules and can do pretty much anything they want. If previous hearing are any indication, they are nothing more than politically motivated enforcers, working at the behest of special interest groups who are intent of silencing any critiques of issues such as immigration, multiculturalism, the holocaust, Zionism and other current political issues. This outrageous abuse of power has lead observers to call these tribunals “nothing more than Kangaroo courts” and “hick tribunals”
The Canadian Human Rights Act - Section 13, covers literally all forms of speech via “a group of interconnected or related computers, including the Internet, or any similar means of communication.” Meaning any computer that is networked can fall under this act. As far fetching (and unconstitutional) as this act is, it can even covers private communications between a citizen and perhaps his Member of Parliament. This act can cover literally any communication made from a computer – whether it was public or not. Private communication is also covered.
With the more recent amendments to the “Human Rights” Act, victims can now face stiff fines as well as cease and desist orders. If your found in contravention of a wide ranging cease and desist order that the “Human Rights” Tribunal issues, your looking at possibly lengthy jail sentences. We need to fight against such a broad act that covers literally every form of speech imaginable on the Internet -- enforceable by fines which could run clear in excess of $60,000 and financially ruin people.
We continue our intense fight to preserve our inherent rights to freedom of speech and freedom of the press on the Internet.
