A B.C. man convicted of an anti-semitic [i.e., anti-Zionist] hate crime has been kicked off the internet, but Arthur Topham won’t serve any jail time.Following a trial in Quesnel in 2015, a jury convicted Topham of one count of communicating online statements that wilfully promoted hatred against Jewish people. [On a second, virtually similar account, Topham was found not guilty. The jury that convicted Topham on the first count did not understand the meaning of ‘parody’!]

He could have faced up to two years in jail.

But at his sentencing Monday, B.C. Supreme Court Judge Bruce Butler rejected the Crown’s request for four months of house arrest for what Crown lawyer Jennifer Johnston called “an indirect call for violence against Jewish people.”

Judge rejects house arrest

Instead, Butler sentenced Topham to a six-month conditional sentence with a ban on posting publicly online and a curfew.

Topham appeared unrepentant, telling the court before sentencing that it was ‘his duty … to alert the … public to the imminent threat …. [of] the Jewish lobby.”

Topham, a 70 year old grandfather and retired teacher, published RadicalPress.com online from his rural home in Cottonwood, B.C., about 700 kilometres north of Vancouver.

The site featured frequent posts that touted Jewish conspiracies and demonized Jewish people. [Apparently, only Jewish bloggers are allowed to express opinions about Jews. See Henry Makow website.]

One piece that Topham called ‘satire’ advocated the forced sterilization of all Jews. [Actually, Topham satirized the book, Germany Must Perish, available on Amazon, in which the Jewish author, Theodore Newman Kaufman, advocated forced sterilization of all Germans! So, real anti-German hate is OK in Canada!]

“He does not call for violence; his views were political satire,” Butler told the sentencing hearing. “It is not his intent to indirectly incite violence.”

Butler ruled that Topham deliberately used the internet to disseminate anti-Semitic information but said the man was not calling for violence.

Controversial website shut down

The crown noted Topham had already agreed to shut down his website, a site which remained active for the year after his conviction but was gone before sentencing. Topham also offered to end his online presence.

Defence lawyer Barclay Johnson had called on the judge to give Topham a discharge.

“My view is that jurors were not convinced,” said the defence lawyer, noting Topham was convicted of only one of two hate crime charges.

Johnson described his client as a good teacher, a father and grandfather and a journalist with “controversial views” and a large following.

“RadicalPress does not advocate violence,” said Johnson. “It does not say Jews should be hurt. My client is being prosecuted for material that can be found on Amazon.” [True, but just recently Amazon has censored 100s of books it does not agree with.]

Topham’s defence backed by ‘white nationalists’

This case was the first hate crime trial prosecuted in B.C. in almost a decade.

Topham’s defence fund was backed by Paul Fromm, a self proclaimed ‘white nationalist’ and free speech advocate who travelled from Ontario to attend the trial.

Topham’s lawyer argued his client has never been a member of a white supremacy group.

Topham’s case also attracted support from the Ontario Civil Liberties Association, which denounced Canada’s hate crime law for criminalizing “belief, opinion and expression of one’s beliefs and opinions … incompatible with the universal principle of free debate in a democracy.”

Topham thanked the court for “bringing my concerns to the record.”

“I felt that I had a duty as a Canadian citizen to alert the general public of an imminent threat … the interests of the Jewish lobby,” said Topham in court Monday.

​Topham’s constitutional challenge of Canada’s hate crime laws was dismissed in February.

German Thought Police Raid Dissident Videographer Alfred Schaefer and Steal His Computers

By Paul Fromm

PATHETIC! Once again, old communist Angela Merkel’s thought control goon squad has swept down on a dissident, raided and ransacked his home and stolen his computers. News just in: ” “Finally, the police raided today the home in Bavaria on Lake Starnberg of Alfred Schaefer, the German + Canadian retired IBM executive whose amazing videos (with those of his sister Monika) on the so-called holocaust stories and 9/11 have terrified the authorities.”

Ironically, the Basic German Law of 1949 brought in during the Allied occupation guarantees freedom of speech. However, just as with notions of “liberte” or the “freedom of thought, freedom of belief, freedom of speech and freedom of the press” guaranteed by Mao-lover Trudeau I’s mendacious and weasely Charter of Rights and Freedoms, no one in the increasingly repressive West takes these promises seriously.

The New Unhappy Lords eager to flood the White world with the Third World and replace us with their grim New World Order are in a panic that more and more once complacent people are on to their game and to the phony New Religion of Holocaust designed to keep the masses ashamed, guilty and accepting of imposed “diversity.”

As a German Canadian, I am outraged that my father’s and mother’s generation sacrificed part of their youth and many sacrificed their health or their lives in a fratricidal war against fellow Europeans. Idealistically, they THOUGHT they were fighting for “King and country and democracy.” That, of course, was not the real agenda, but they were well intentioned and brave and that is what they imagined they were fighting for. What a sham, what a waste, what a shame to see the leaden hand of thought dictatorship smashing down doors and seizing computers all for the non-violent expression of a person’s opinion. That’s the very thing my parents’ generation thought they were fighting against.
