Ezra The Braveheart vs. The Alberta Star Chamber

PART 1 – OPENING STATEMENT – Ezra jackboots the HRCs:

Highlights:

In other words, the commission is a joke – it’s the Alberta equivalent of a U.S. television pseudo-court like Judge Judy – except that Judge Judy actually was a judge, whereas none of the commission’s panellists are judges, and some aren’t even lawyers. And, unlike the commission, Judge Judy believes in freedom of speech.

Unlike real courts, there is no way to apply for a dismissal of nuisance lawsuits. Common law rules of evidence don’t apply. Rules of court don’t apply. It is a system that is part Kafka, and part Stalin. Even this interrogation today – at which I appear under duress – saw the commission tell me who I could or could not bring with me as my counsel and advisors.I have no faith in this farcical commission. But I do have faith in the justice and good sense of my fellow Albertans and Canadians. I believe that the better they understand this case, the more shocked they will be. I am here under your compulsion to answer the commission’s questions. But it is not I who am on trial: it is the freedom of all Canadians.

PART 2 – WHAT IS YOUR INTENT? – Ezra goes for the jugular:

Highlights:

We published those cartoons for the intent and purpose of exercising our inalienable rights as free born Albertans to publish whatever the hell we want no matter whatever the hell you think. (1:41-1:58)

I have probably given over 200 interviews with people other than the State where I give a very thoughtful and nuanced expression of my intent, but the only thing I owe to the government about why I published it is: “it’s my bloody right to do so.” (2:00-2:15)

PART 3 – THE REAL VIOLENCE IN EDMONTON – Hatred brought on themselves by their conduct:

Highlight:

It’s radical Muslims who blow things up, who torch my Synagogue, who file nuissance lawsuits. They are the ones who make people hate Muslims. (1:15-1:27)

PART 4 – I DON’T ANSWER TO THE STATE – The Thugs at the HRC:

Highlight:

I do not seek to be excused from this complaint because I meet your test of reasonableness or Laurie Andreachuck, the thug from Lethbridge who convicted a Christian pastor for having Christian views. She’s a thug. You’re a thug. Your whole company is a thug. I do not seek to convince you because to do so means that I grant you some moral authority. (0:40 – 1:05)

PART 5 – YOU’RE ENTITLED TO YOUR OPINIONS – …provided you pay our fine:

Highlight:

Ezra: How ironic that something calling itself the “human rights commission” is the one corroding those rights.

Interrogator: You’re entitled to your opinions. That’s for sure.

Ezra: Uh…I wish that were a fact. (0:25-0:39)

PART 6 – THE LIMITS OF FREE SPEECH – time for an education in freedom

Highlights:

Because they could express themselves through words, they didn’t have to express themselves through violence…Part of the reason that hell holes like that are so violent is because they don’t have peaceful ways to vent ideas. (2:34-2:55)

I put it to you that unbriddled political speech is not just allowed but it is the antedote, the prophylactic, against violence. (3:10-3:21)

Karla Homolka and Paul Bernardo, the most heinous criminals in this country…convicted mass murderers…the State cannot order them to apologize. It’s cruel and unusual punishment [to do so]…People know they wouldn’t mean it…A convicted murderer cannot be ordered to apologize but a convicted publisher can be ordered by the State to apologize. I’ll rot in hell before I use my mouth to say that fascist’s words with you as his instrument to compel me to do so. (4:36-5:16)

PART 7 – VIOLATING THEIR OWN POLICIES – but they do acquit from time to time, slave!

Highlight:

Ezra: That’s the human rights commission. It wasn’t Ms. Andreachuk. She wasn’t speaking for herself. She was speaking with the hammer of the State.

InTerrorgator: Our process can end at the report…If I issue a dismissal report that might be the end.

Ezra: It might be or [in the case of] Rev. Boisson, a Christian pastor who was convicted…you’re unbelievable. (2:54-3:20)

PART 8 – CLOSING COMMENTS – Game, Set and Match

Highlight:

It is my hope that this mattter is not dismissed. It is my hope that this complaint is accepted, that it goes to a hearing, and I happen to appear before the most fascist of the panelists – some thug down in Lethbridge named Laurie Andreachuk. I hope that I appear in front of her. I hope she is having a particularly angry day. I hope she hears every word of this, and I called her a ‘thug’, and I hope that she “convicts” me and “sentences” me to this apology that this fascist from Saudi Arabia demands of me because then I will take this junk out of the human rights commission and into real courts where 800 years of common law and the charter of rights and the bill of rights will come to my aid. (2:38-3:26)

  2. I ‘ve said this before, and I truly believe it. More and more government agencies seem to be having a competition on who can be the most vindictive when dealing with Canadians. CHRC, Revenue Canada, Veterans affairs to name a few. And it is not just at the federal level. Outside of Toronto in Durham region, there is always a story in the local newspaper about how the police are having a “safety” crack down on speeders aggressive drivers etc. Of course no mention is made of the revenue that will be generated.

  3. This commission and its employees, especially this woman are evil incarnate. Good for Ezra, more people need to fight these Fascists.

  4. Fantastic job at the “hearing”, Ezra. Oh, how badly we need you to run for Prime Minister and get our country back on track to freedom.

  5. There is something called hate propaganda in Canada and it is illegal.

    From the Criminal Code of Canada:

    319. (1) Every one who, by communicating statements in any public place, incites hatred against any identifiable group where such incitement is likely to lead to a breach of the peace is guilty of
    (a) an indictable offence and is liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years; or
    (b) an offence punishable on summary conviction.

    Wilful promotion of hatred
    (2) Every one who, by communicating statements, other than in private conversation, wilfully promotes hatred against any identifiable group is guilty of
    (a) an indictable offence and is liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years; or
    (b) an offence punishable on summary conviction.

    The law clearly shows you can’t just say publicly whatever you want, not in newspapers, in broadcast and yes,not on the Internet, either. Apparently some people don’t understand the law.

  6. Yeah, and in Hitler’s Germany, talking against Nazism was majorly against the law. Hey, it was just the law, and you had to respect it. Makes a lot of sense huh. It’s fascist, period. Canada is now a fascist country. How do you like that? Is that what the so-called ‘Liberals’ and so-called ‘progressives’ want?

    Why Does Canada Allow This?

    All real freedom starts with freedom of speech.
    If there is no freedom of speech, then there can be no real freedom.

  7. USpace you don’t have the right to incite hatred on a race, just because you have the Charter right of “freedom of expression.” The Charter language ” reasonable limits” is there. The courts interpret it. Any government has the right to pass a law “notwithsatnding” such a court ruling. And Canadian governments have the authority to change the constituiton. We have a Charter, it provides for freedom of speech but within reasonable limits prescribed by law. Is there some part of that you don’t understand? .

  8. Tom, there are many questions posed by such laws. I understand those laws to be subjective and thus unjust. What is reasonable speech? What is it to “incite hatred on a race”? Is criticizing certain people of a race the same as criticizing the race itself?

    Is criticizing the Government’s policies regarding immigration hate speech?

    Is calling a non-white person racist racist?

    All people of ALL races deserve equal human rights. No members of certain races or religions should be allowed to violate other human’s rights. Even if they claim their religion allows it, it must not be tolerated if it violates Canada’s laws.

    There have been cases of people complaining about violent speech and writings against Christians and Jews by certain religion’s religious leaders but the HRC won’t do anything about that because that doesn’t fit their politics of bowing to a cherished victim class.

    Is that hating? Besides, I’m not defending calling for violence against a person or members of a race or political persuasion. That is different.

    But if someone reads something simply critical and a bit mean-spirited and then they decide to go and turn any hate they have into discriminatory or violent actions against the subjects of the criticism, then they have done wrong. Not the writer.

    What ever happened to that old saying “sticks and stones will break my bones, but names will never hurt me.”?

    People don’t have a right not to be insulted. If they do get insulted that doesn’t give them the right to threaten violence and cause and participate in violent and destructive riots.

    IMHO Warman is acting like a f—t for trying to stifle political expression he disagrees with. It’s not even like most of the ‘speech’ he has gone after has been against him in a racial way

    He tries to brand anyone concerned with legitimate immigration problems or creeping Sharia in Canada as a racist or a Nazi.

  9. and furthermore:

    Warman has gone after predominantly poor white people.

    Besides, even racists and Nazis are entitled to voice and express their views, no matter how sick they are.

  10. Sorry, but WordPress keeps saying I’m using a ‘spammy word’, and it stops my comment, I have no idea what they are talking about.

    so furthermore:

    Racists and Nazis must be debated openly to show them and everyone else why their ideas are bogus and insane.

    They must be mocked and exposed, not silenced and hidden away.

    Shutting them up makes this much harder to do. It also needlessly creates martyrs and gains them and their ideas followers.

    However, Warman may have bit off more than he can chew with this libel suit, given that a complaint was just brought against the CHRC for violating the Privacy Act by allegedly accessing a nearby (the CHRC offices) homeowner’s wireless internet account to log onto Stormfr*nt or something in one of their racist incitement and entrapment schemes.

  11. and furthermore:

    If what was said is true, it is not libel.

    Even the Leftists in the USA who are racists aren’t against unpopular speech as much as Canadian Leftists seem to be.

  12. and furthermore:

    My grandmother was from Canada, I think this ‘speech pogrom’ must have her rolling in her grave.

    G*d bless and save Canada.

  13. Tom,

    I didn’t steal any points from others. My points are certainly echoed by others and I’m not claiming that only I have those points to make, nor that I was the first to make them.

    I thought you would be interested in what a fellow Canadian journalist has to say about the matter. Hopefully you will read his article too.

  14. Also, try to imagine a reverse world and far-right fasc*st state where racism and antisemit*sm was the norm.

    Speaking and writing against antisemitism and racism would be declared illegal for being hateful against the state and the majority of citizens.

  15. “Sorry, your comment has been blocked because you used a word normally reserved for spammers. If you are not a spam peddling robot, you can hit the back button in your browser and stop using spammy words.”

  16. Tom, sorry, but this wordpress thing is messing up my comments so I hope this works in one comment. Basically you haven’t said a thing to debate anything I’ve said. I must say that you debate like a perfect lefty. You don’t say a thing.

    🙂

  17. USpace nice way to evade the fact that you can no longer debate the issue at hand. You don’t know how to deal with what I just educated you on so
    you stopped there because you couldn’t figure out how to respond to it.

  18. That’s so factually incorrect it’s difficult to know where to start.

    * Total amount received from Coun. Scott Fielding for 2009 BCC “Pay down the Tractor Social”: $200

    The money was not for private drinking and dancing. It was part of a fundraiser. That money went directly to pay off a tractor purchased by the club to maintain two ice rinks and to clear snow around the club, including nearby walking paths for pedestrians. The tractor is driven by several volunteers and all ice maintenance is performed strictly by volunteers. No paid staff.

    The social made a profit of $2,726. Everyone who attended bought a ticket and paid for their own drinks. No person received a single grant or any money whatsoever, unlike individual grants to artists.

    * 2008 Hoedown received $400 from Coun. Scott Fielding. This is an annual soccer windup designed to raise money for our amateur sports, particularly soccer, so kids from all income groups can play sports. It’s also a general fundraiser for the club, which provides a wide range of public services to a broad group of people, and is run almost entirely by volunteers.

    Total profit from Hoedown $1,456. Unlike individual artist grants, no person received any grant or any money whatsoever from the event.

    * $150 for street party was not for any food or drinks. Another factual error. It was to help pay for a bouncer rental for community children. Everybody paid for all their own food and refreshments. Unlike individual artist grants, no person received any grants or any money whatsoever.

    I’ll check into Halloween party, another very small fundraiser for the club. I don’t recall any $650 from Scott Fielding on this one. But I’ll check. This one only makes a few hundred dollars in net revenues.

    So the blogger got a bit of info from one of his little sources at city hall, but he got the story wrong. Not the first time that bloggers got it wrong. Won’t be the last.

  19. If anyone on this blog would like to challenge my arguments, I challenge you to do it in a public fourm with me? You up for it Ron, USpace? Seriously. Call me at 1-204-632-2742. I’ll set it up. I bet you don’t have the balls.
