Serial litigant and Stormfront member Richard Warman launched a blizzard of lawsuits today, against The National Post and the backbone of the northern blogosphere – Ezra Levant, Kate McMillan, Kathy Shaidle and Free Dominion. He’d laid low for a few weeks, contenting himself with empty threats against McGill students, but he has now made his move. Ezra Levant lays out the legal challenge very clearly, Glenn Reynolds offers some advice, and Jay Currie adds an important point:

“Warman is betting all the marbles here. His credibility and the credibility of the CHRC are now in play. Warman was the CHRC’s creature and, I suspect the evidence will show, the CHRC became his creature as he casually crossed the line between investigator and complainant.”

Precisely. It’s not possible to take a stand against the Canadian Human Rights Commission without also talking a stand against Richard Warman. He has been the plaintiff on half the Section 13 cases in its entire history and on all the Section 13 cases since 2002. There are 30 million Canadians yet only one of them uses this law, over and over and over again, which tells you how otherwise irrelevant it is to keeping the Queen’s peace. Section 13 is, in effect, Warman’s Law and the CHRC is Warman’s personal inquisition and the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal is Warman’s very own kangaroo court. Whether or not the motivations were pure and pristine when this racket got started, at some point his pals at the CHRC and the “judges” of the CHRT should have realized that the Warmanization of Section 13 doesn’t pass the smell test: Justice must not only be done, it must be seen to be done, and when you see what’s done at the CHRC you understand it’s a cosy and self-perpetuating romance between a corrupt bureaucracy and its favoured son.

So taking on the CHRC means taking on Richard Warman. I believe my colleague Charlie Gillis will have a piece on Warman in this week’s Maclean’s, on sale tomorrow, so the spotlight isn’t going to be dimming anytime soon. In the meantime, I hope SteynOnline readers will support Ezra, Kate, Kathy and Mark and Connie at Free Dominion. They are private citizens like Richard Warman. Unlike him, they have not been enriched by tax-free awards of significant five-figure sums for entirely mythical “pain and suffering”. So please go on over to the various websites and make a donation, as my pal Michelle Malkin did earlier today. In Kathy’s case, you might also consider buying a copy of her book Acoustic Ladyland: it’s in a good cause, but you’ll get the better end of the bargain because it’s a great read.

Ezra Levant with Marc Lemire: freedom of speech

Marc Lemire, the target of Canada’s speech mandarins for 8 years, joins Ezra Levent to discuss, amongst other things, the activities of federal employee Richard Warman.

Then Ezra is joined by Chris Schafer of the Canadian Constitution Foundation.

Much as I want to see Section 13 and the CHRC go down in flames, I strongly advise against strengthening any “hate propaganda” or “hate speech” provisions in the criminal code. That could result in prison sentences, rather than merely civil fines and sanctions, imposed on counterjihad activists and anyone else who violates the standards of political correctness and multiculturalism.

Also see:

The next video shows that the efforts to censor any honest discussion of immigration, multiculturalism, and the threat of Islam are not paying off. Note the silly reference to Muslims as an “ethnic group.”

G** dammit Babs Hall! The peasants are expressing their opinion, AND IT’S THE WRONG ONE! Get in there and imprison them until they hold correct views.

Like you, I want Section 13 gone, but I do NOT want to see the criminal code strengthened for “hate” speech (since it’s really just free speech that someone arbitrarily found offensive). I recall recently Kady O’Malley asking that very thing of so-called free speechers on Twitter. I guess many of the responses she received were against Section 13 but in favor of strengthening criminal code. I said neither were acceptable to me, as the idea of “hate” speech is too subjective. Threatening speech is a totally different matter and not subjective. But simply saying something “mean” that someone took offense to — that is not something I believe should be criminalized ever. She said my response seemed most consistent with a belief in free speech.

We need to get hurt feelings out of court rooms altogether, so it can deal with actual criminal matters.

Warman is a pansy on his last legs. He’s reduced to representing himself because section 13 is about to be abolished by the Conservative government. Which also means relative jurisprudence in the Canadian Forces which matches the same wording will be challenged and made irrelevant. Folks like him and Dr. Dawg will soon be relegated to the scrap heap of conversation; the type of talk which only ranks merit at the pole rather than being of merit to strap folks to the pole for saying what they think!

I sure hope Warman is running out of ammo, so to speak. I am not campaigning against him out of personal animosity; I simply want to shut down his nefarious activities once and for all. Even if Warman is representing himself, his lawsuits are still muzzling legitimate news reporting and political debate, and costing innocent people a lot of time and money.
