Racists, Skinheads And White Supremacists Praise The Conservative's Anti-Human Rights Law

"A Conservative private members’ bill that repeals part of Canada’s hate speech laws has passed the House of Commons with scant media attention, and even less commentary. But it's being cheered by many Canadian conservatives as a victory for freedom of speech. And it's being cheered most vocally by another group: White supremacists. 

Bill C-304, introduced by Conservative backbencher Brian Storseth, repeals Section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act, which bans hate speech transmitted over the Internet or by telephone. It passed third reading in the House of Commons on Thursday and is now headed to the Senate. “This is a huge victory for freedom in Canada,” a poster calling him or herself “CanadaFirst” posted on the website of StormFront, a notorious white supremacist group. “However, we still have other unjust Zionist ‘hate’ laws that need to go.” “Way to go, Harper. I know we can’t get everything we want, but I stand a little taller today as a Canuck,” wrote “OneMan.”

In an indirect way, it will be useful in the fight against Harper. Some of those groups are sure to put out outrageous material that will be more fuel for the fire. Then when he's gone, just restore the law, and perhaps carelessness and momentum will keep them churning out stuff that will put them where they belong, in prison.

the outrageousness is already there and no-one takes it seriously, Harper will be passed by time, there is no fire. canadians sit and do nothing as usual. stop tricking yourself into believing ther is some movement that you are part of. youmay be the one in prison by no fault of your own someday, and your cell mate may be a skinhead!!

dream on, time will pass harper, just as everything passes. there is no movement, legislation will not put "them" in prison. don't be delusional. no one takes it seriously, never has. Canadians sit by while they get sheared like good sheep.

Contrary to everyone else in the room, I actually find this to be one of the few bills of Harper's that I approve of. This is actually restoring freedom of speech, and hopefully we get to repeal the reprehensible hate speech laws that strangle this land.

I also find it reprehensible to have you call Harper's bill an "Anti-Human Rights" bill/law/whatever. Any restrictions or denial freedom of speech is far worse than abuses of it.

I speak as someone who utterly despises the likes of David Ahenakew, who was wrongfully charged and convicted for saying things that offended people. It is just as loathsome as the things he said and actually believed in. I mean, the man revealed himself to be completely stupid. Where on earth did he get this anti-Semitic views from? The Germans he played soccer with during the Second World War. Just by word of mouth alone, without bothering to verify anything he's told, and because he has shown himself to be naturally stupid, he literally believes that the Jews somehow started the Second World War. It's a factual as the concept of the New World Order, which means that the Jews didn't start the Second World War!!! The Jews did not invade Poland!!!

You combat hate speech and misinformation with truth!

I also speak as someone who was more horrified at the way my Muslim brethren reacted over awfully drawn cartoons than the drawings themselves! I mean, they reacted like apes! Over drawings that not only were no just artistically tasteless but were made for a Danish tabloid "newspaper"!!!

Hate speech laws tell us that we're not adults, that we're so incapable of making any mature decisions on our own that we have to make laws to protect ourselves from, well, ourselves! Calling someone the N-word isn't a hate crime! Subjecting someone to harassment, violence, and murder IS a hate crime! And if you do physically attack or harass people because they're supposedly inferior, you go to jail for that.

Ok Mikailus!

CORRECTION: actually, David Ahenekew was playing soccer with German prisoners of war after the war. Apologies for the confusion there.

Long live skinhaeds Lorenzo
