The full text of Ezra' statement is here.
Just a couple of points. The picture above left is related to paragraph 41 of Ezra's statement, which reads in part:
In 2006, Mr. Warman paid for a bus to transport dozens of ARA [Anti Racist Action] Members to the Toronto home of Mr. [Paul] Fromm.
ARA was and is a decentralized group of anti-Fascist activists working in Canada and the U.S. If you lived in Toronto, esp. during the 1990s and earlier part of this decade, you might have read about how this "ragamuffin band of homeless street kids and anarchists" out-hustled and out organized our local white supremacist contingent, including at the event depicted above left.
While Richard Warman addressed the group in 2005, the only evidence ever presented to the effect that he rented a bus to get them to Paul Fromm's Toronto residence is the photo shown above left. A couple of days ago, a member of ARA's Toronto chapter contacted me with information on the 2006 incident(1):
This is a canard that has been spread by neo-nazis...too obtuse to understand a sarcastic placard when they see one ("Thanks Richard Warman for the bus rental" - meant to taunt the fascists) ...In fact, the bus, which cost approximately $200, was paid for by ARA organizers.
Put another way, Ezra's lawyers are unable to distinguish between a joke placard and a financial statement.
In fact, part of the problem with Ezra's statement of defense is how heavily it leans upon material gleaned from this site. While the people behind Richardwarmen.com are still mysterious, immediately upon its creation word of the page was published on Stormfront (warning, link to Neo-Nazi website!). This is something you don't want to happen if you intend to use material from a site in your libel defense. It rather lowers the credibility of that material.
Furthermore, at several points in his statement of the defense Levant refers to "the ARA" which, given the fact that "ARA" stands for "Anti Racist Action", is ungrammatical. Correct is "ARA" or "the ARA network". What is telling is that this particular error is typical of Neo-Nazi references to the group. For example, here and here (Warning! More Nazis!). Another sign of where the material in Ezra's statement originates.
(1) This account has been corroborated from a number of other sources. The point of the placard is that previously members of the Stormfront community had speculated that Warman must be renting buses for the ARA network, so many of them were turning out for Anti-Ernst Zundel protests.
