If you can't win in an argument, sue

five feet of fury reports Canada's busiest litigant, serial "human rights" complainant and -- the guy Mark Steyn has called "Canada’s most sensitive man" -- Richard Warman is now suing his most vocal critics

  • Ezra Levant (famous for his stirring YouTube video of his confrontation with the Canadian Human Rights tribunal after he published the “Mohammed Cartoons”)
  • (Canada’s answer to
  • Kate McMillan of
  • Jonathan Kay of the National Post daily newspaper and its in-house blog
  • and me, Kathy Shaidle of
.... Richard Warman also wants to ban international websites he doesn’t like from being seen by Canadians.
If you can't defeat them in a debate, sue them. This man must be stopped.
The folks named in his new law suit are the very bloggers who have been most outspoken in their criticism of Warman’s methods.

NoseOnYourFace has reopened the Ezra Levant T-shirt store, with profits going to their collective defense fund.

Ed Morrissey blogged These bloggers and free-speech advocates can use your help. First, be sure to read their entire posts on the controversy. Next, link back to them, showing them support for their efforts to keep political and social criticism from falling victim to government-imposed speech codes. If you can, hit their tip jars to provide some financial support — because brother, they’re going to need it for the attorneys they will have to hire.

Michelle Malkin blogged As I said when I wrote about the coming attack last month, their fight is our fight. Time to put our money where are mouths/hearts/blogs are.

IMHO is Warman is acting like a certified fascist? Canada is now a fascist country? I bet American, European and Australian bloggers can mock Warman right into a straight jacket. Everyone in Canada must hear about this Warman and the HRC injustice!

This fellow in the HRC, Richard Warman, sounds like a totally wonderful human being who doesn’t have a huge chip on his shoulder or one evil bone in his whole fair-minded body.

He doesn’t at all sound like a sick and demented bastard who is angry
and bitter because he got his butt massively kicked in those elections years ago.
absurd thought -
God of the Universe likes
human rights commissions

that violate human rights
while claiming to protect them

absurd thought -
God of the Universe hates
real freedom of speech

an American concept
which is NOT for Canada

Why Does Canada Allow This?

All real freedom starts with freedom of speech.
If there is no freedom of speech, then there can be no real freedom.
