Warman has sued me and a list of other bloggers
By Ezra Levant
'Today I was sued by Richard Warman, Canada’s most prolific – and
profitable – user of section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act ...
Warman isn’t just a happy customer of section 13 and its 100%
conviction rate, he’s a former CHRC employee, an investigator of
section 13 thought crimes himself. In fact, he was often both a
customer and an investigator at the same time.'
What can you do?
this fight isn’t just about Warman and the defendants. It’s about
political censorship, the abuse of government power, and the freedom of
the blogosphere. Warman wants to marginalize and perhaps even
criminalize conservative ideas. Well, I want to denormalize the human
rights commissions. It’s going to be a helluva fight – and an excellent
opportunity to showcase the abusive, corrupt, bullying, censorious
nature of the CHRCs and their star pupil, Richard Warman.
don’t even think the importance of this fight is limited to Canada. The
creeping censorship that Warman embodies is of the same breed as the
censorship that Geert Wilders faces for his film, Fitna. It’s part of a
global attempt to squelch ideas about liberty and other western values.
It’s part of an unholy alliance between domestic leftists and foreign
jihadis. In fact, it’s precisely what I’m talking about, with Mark
Steyn, in New York tomorrow.
If you want to help, I can think of three things to do:
me and the other defendants with our legal bills. I don’t know how
Warman funds his dozens of defamation suits. As I mentioned above, I
suspect the CJC helps him out. I know Kathy, Kate and Connie and Mark
and, like me, they don’t have an extra $30,000 or $50,000 kicking
around to fend off this nuisance suit. And that’s probably how much it
will cost each of us to take this to trial. In my case, it’s a
double-whammy – I’m already on the hook for legal bills fighting
against the Alberta HRC complaint about publishing the Danish cartoons.
This is clearly the HRCs’ attempt to pile on.

the word about this fight, and the other abusive distortions to our law
that Canada’s human rights commissions and their courtiers are doing.
That’s what I call denormalization – letting ordinary Canadians know
that the agencies and advocates who used to promote our civil rights
are now amongst Canada’s worst abusers of our civil rights – especially
our freedom of speech.
And, remember the second step in our fight-back
plan: once we’ve raised awareness about the dangers of Canada’s
out-of-control human rightsniks, we have to press our politicians to
act. This lawsuit has just a handful of defendants. But that’s
misleading, because what’s really at stake here is the right for anyone
to criticize Canada’s HRCs, and the existence of conservative blogs at
all. If we lose, no-one else will dare to criticize the HRCs –
certainly not politicians. And Richard Warman’s campaign of bullying
and censorship will continue. But if we win – and, by the way, we’re
already winning – we’ll expose the depths of the corruption of the HRCs
and we’ll be able to prune them back, or uproot them altogether. Warman
might think that the defendants and I will be on trial. I give you my
promise that he and the CHRC will be on trial every bit as much – and
far more so in the court of public opinion.
