Representatives of Canadian Jews oppose free speech

It sounds like Canadian Jews are just as Leftist as U.S. ones. Will Jews ever learn not to support authoritarianism in government? Was Hitler not a big enough lesson?
The B.C. Civil Liberties Association will be among a number of groups arguing this week that the Internet should be open to all kinds of speech, no matter how repugnant. Opposing that position is B'nai B'rith of Canada, which is adamant that hate speech must be kept off the Web.

The two sides will argue their positions as interveners this week at a judicial review of a ruling that challenged the constitutionality of hate speech provisions of the Canadian Human Rights Act.

The case arose after a human rights tribunal ruled that Marc Lemire, of Hamilton, Ont., had contravened the act by publishing an article on the Internet that was likely to expose homosexuals and blacks to hatred and contempt.

But the tribunal didn't impose the hate speech provisions of the Canadian Human Rights Act, ruling they were unconstitutional.

Richard Warman, an Ottawa lawyer, then complained, alleging Lemire had engaged in activities prohibited by the act, by communicating hate messages on several websites, and sought remedies. Those found to have engaged in the discriminatory practice "wilfully and recklessly" can be fined up to $20,000.

Marvin Kurz, representing B'nai B'rith of Canada, said while his group would support some changes, such as removing the penalties, he believes the law is constitutional and the tribunal member misread it when determining Lemire's case.

"There are some forms of speech that are so bad that it's dangerous and harmful. It has to be the worst of the worst ... that we have to be protected from," Kurz said. "There's a real value in the way the law is now."

And which Provincial band of goons is gonna determine that? Why don't we ask Mark Steyn?

Wondering if that includes "blasphemy?"

Jews used to care about stuff like that!

And Islam says just DRAWING a picture of the prophet (may he burn in hell) is punishable by death. Is that the "so bad that it's dangerous and harmful?"

Come on, B'Nai Brith - find a brain!

Bird,

"Canada is becoming a socialists nation they dont need speech codes"

Our chattering classes are like that, yes, much like chattering classes elsewhere. But the rest of the people are much more sensical. much like the rest of the people elsewhere.

P.S.: I'd be curious to know the real logic behind the BB's position. I suspect they are not seriously stupid enough to believe what they are saying, but when you need an excuse you gotta go with what you got at hand, I guess. Currying favor with the poohbahs, perhaps?

The people of B'nai B'rith are infamous for calling anything they dislike or disagree with "hate speech".

BTW, thanks to that orginization and it's massive efforts back in the 70's, NYC now has, not only the largest Russian immigrant population in the nation, but also a "serious" Russian organized crime problem. B'nai B'rith pressured NYC's leftist Democrat politicians, all of whom are Jewish, to get over a million Russians into the US, simply because most of them were jewish.

Think Noachide Law folks.

The Anti- "hate laws" pushed by the BnaiBrith are actually anti-heresy laws.

All jews who love the gentile nations in which they reside might think about preserving them as they are. After all, isn't that why you like them ? Once they're totally and utterly ruined by the the immigration advocacy of the likes of the BnaiBrith, you'll only have the BnaiBrith and jews without the courage to speak for the gentiles whom the BnaiBrith gaols to blame.

It is my sincere opinion that it totalitarianism is the inevitable end result of either judaism itself OR the reaction to it.

Solution.... separation of synagogue and state so that mankind my live free and unfettered by the false imposts of judaism. But then, denying the rabbinate the opportunity to practice their religion upon the heads of the goyim would be "anti-semitism" and "hate" wouldn't it.

And so are "they"....

Remember what happened in Russia in 1917 ?

Its groundhog day it is .... This time in the United States of America,,,, soon..

With vigilance and thought, it did not need to come to this. The US gone postal train has significant momentum and is already becoming unstable on the track. There are idiots, morons and pretenders at the helm who've licences given to them by the Wizard of Oz.
