A real scandal

I agree with Mark Steyn: it's about time the Justice Minister launched an investigation into the case of Richard Warman.

Richard Warman is a former employee of the Alberta Human Rights Commission, and we also knowthis:
Who has availed themselves of the "human rights" protected by Section XIII? In its entire history, over half of all cases have been brought by a sole "complainant," one Richard Warman. Indeed, Mr. Warman has been a plaintiff on every single Section XIII case before the federal "human rights" star chamber since 2002 — and he's won every one.
Section XIII is the "hate speech" section of the HRC's little empire. As Americans may not know (or believe), in these kangaroo courts, the plaintiff's costs are all borne by the government; the accused has to pay for his defence out of his own pocket. And if the HRC finds the accused guilty, they can levy fines against them, to the benefit of the plaintiff. Oh, did I say "if"? Sorry, I meant when. The HRC has a 100% conviction rate.

This looks SO crooked and SO bad, it's time for the Justice Department to start an investigation. I'd like to know a bit more about Richard Warman. Specifically, if he has any income besides the proceeds of these star-chamber trials? Does he actually work for a living? Or does he just wait until his bank balance is getting a little low, and then steer a pigeon towards his old buddies on the HRC for plucking? Considering his reputation as Never-Lose Warman, how many complaints may have been quietly settled in private between Richard Warman and his targets? Pay attention, Americans - this is what it would look like if you permanently handed a courtroom over to Al Sharpton.

And I'd like some investigation of his former colleagues, too. Why are they so obliging towards Richard Warman? Are there any kickbacks going on here? Audit them, too. If a lawyer became a judge, and then people began noticing that every case brought before him by his old law firm resulted in victory for his former colleagues, wouldn't there be a teeny bit of an uproar? What if a man left his job in Public Works, and started a company which happened to win EVERY contract it bid on - wouldn't that be sufficient to raise suspicions? Heck, I'll bet there'd be a Parliamentary inquiry in place within a week.

The final thing that takes away the benefit of the doubt from Richard Warman is this unbelievably foul experiment in entrapment. (Warning, inflammatory racist language!) Warman posted racist hate speech on a notorious pro-Nazi blog, then used HIS OWN POST as an excuse for lodging a complaint against the blog. And of course, his buddies on the HRC abetted him.

This is the kind of corrupt fakery I'd expect from Zimbabwe, not from a supposedly decent country like Canada. It's time to pull the plug on these human rights frauds once and for all.

This is more than just "entrapment". Warman actually CREATED the crime he set out to prosecute. This is tantamount to planting evidence, and if Warman were a cop he'd be in very hot water indeed.

Do you have any evidence that he did any such thing? Hint: the word of a neo-nazi opponent of Warman is not, in itself, evidence of anything but animosity.

"Warman posts message at the same "hate" website Kulbashian does - as the "investigator", Sandy Kozak, conceded, technically:

'Bearing the above in mind, this complaint is not clearly lacking in merit as the respondent [Warman]'s actions do amount to communicating hate messages albeit in a very limited context.'"

The word of Warman himself is not evidence of anything, either. I believe what I read about the tracing of IP numbers, but hey, the OJ Simpson jury wouldn't believe the DNA evidence presented, so I'm not surprised to read a lot of far-fetched theories explaining away the virtual paper trail.

where did the idea that one has a right not to be offended come from?
and are Canadians by nature that sensitive that little words trigger a star chamber?

It's been building gradually over the years, anon. It's like cancer - it goes along quietly for years, then one day you discover that you're in a fight for your life. I think Canadians have been flattering themselves for decades that we're a kind of overgrown Shire, and we've become more and more ridiculous in our attempts to keep up the act. And now we've come to this point where we're trapped into thinking that somehow it's our destiny to create a whole country that's lined from end to end with Nerf balls, so no one will ever bruise a knee or a hear an out-of-tune chord.
