Richard Warman's war against conservative bloggers...

If you aren't a regular reader of Ezra Levant's web site, you should be. Turns out, he has just been sued for libel by Richard Warman - the ex CHRC employee who regularly brings people before the Commission. He'a also suing several blogs like Small Dead Animals and Five Feet of Fury. This is a one-man wrecking crew of free speech.

Levant outlines three ways to help the fight...
1. Help 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.

2. Spread 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.

3. 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.

I agree with BCF - This is an attack against all Canadian bloggers.

Thank you for posting about this. Spread the word to other blogs, left or right. Embarrass our governments into action.

I just sent a reply to the CPC's latest fundraising letter. "I am suspending my donations to the CPC and sending them to those who are defending our freedom of speech until the CPC shows me that they are doing something to reign in the professional haters and do something about the HRC's and the RW's of this world".
