Your Daily Nazi: A Regular Plethora Of Nazis

When discussing hate speech legislation, Section 13, and so on and so forth, its important to get a handle on the kind of people these tools are typically used against. ARC has compiled an extensive list of violent acts committed by Canadian Neo-Nazis and white supremacists. I'm not sure its quite exhaustive; I was about half certain white supremacists were behind some of stuff during the Oka Crisis. But pretty impressive nevertheless.

Wow, I didn't know Section 13 of the CHRA prohibited violence! I thought we had, you know, the Criminal Code for that sort of thing.

What people dont realize that in the history of section 13, the people who have been charged are the biggest bigots in Canada.

The right wingers like to show that this law was set up to control free speech, like an off colour joke or something minor can be major. Also they want to show the primary benefactors are those evil radical muslims (ofcourse they can't blame all Muslims until the law is revoked at which point they are free to spew their bigotry on this group). Any look at history will show the majority of convicted cases deal with homophobia and anti-semitism.

In reality those convicted under section 13 are major are bigots who do advocate for violence against an identifiable group. Repealing this law will ensure that these bigots will be allowed to advocate violence against minority groups with out repercussion.

Good post!

It certainly is relevant that the prople who typically fall afoul hate speech legislation are neither exclusively nor principally seeking to promote their views in the marketplace of ideas.

Their ideas, but obviously not only their ideas, are literally filled with hate.

Ok, hate speech is one thing.

But how about the Air India bombing that killed 280 Canadians? Was that Neo-Nazis too?

And the Toronto 18 who were plotting to kill our Prime Minister and slaughter innocent Canadians? What's their link to Neo-Nazism?

And why are most terrorists who are arrested Ontarians? Just wonderin'.
