Richard Warman -still at it
(from Paul Fromm's email)
If you want to express a political or religious opinion on Facebook, you'd better run it by Richard Warman, who does something or other in the Department of National Defence. A chronic complainer under Sec. 13 (now repealed) of the notorious Canadian Human Rights Act, he damaged dozens of people's lives -- people who had views he deemed hate. Then, if you criticized him, he was likely to slap you with a libel suit. When his Sec. 13 toy was taken away, he switched to other methods of policing thought in Canada. A recent target was the zany, satirical newspaper YOUR WARD NEWS.
Now, he's after Facebook pages that are critical of Islam. Criticism of privileged minorities is, among the politically correct, "hate"
Facebook has removed some of these pages. That's not surprising. Facebook President Mark Zukerberg is a fervent Zionist and did a deal with German thought control freak Angela Merkel to suppress German immigration critics expressing their views on Facebook.
The National Post (February 21,2017) reports: "A half-dozen Facebook pages were offline Tuesday following a complaint by Ottawa lawyer Richard Warman, who had raised concerns they were engaged in hate speech against Muslims. Among them was “Canadians Against Islamization.” Banners bearing the same name were displayed by protesters at a small anti-Muslim demonstration Friday outside a downtown Toronto mosque.
'It only takes a 30 second Google search to confirm why most of these individuals and groups are a problem in relation to hate speech,' Warman said. 'Hate speech has no place in Canada.'”
Notice, the victims got no trial or right of response. And what is 'hate spech'? Why it's speech some privileged minority hates.
Warman, who has long battled far right websites, had sent a list of suspected Canadian anti-Muslim pages to Facebook following the Quebec City mosque attack that left six worshippers dead.
Facebook has 'taken action on those that qualify as hate speech,' a company spokeswoman said Tuesday. While some of the pages were removed, others remained up but specific posts were deleted.
Six of the 22 Facebook links in Warman’s complaint were no longer online, among them the Cultural Action Party, Canadians Against Justin Trudeau and Soldiers of Odin – Ontario South.
'The reason I forwarded the list of Facebook profiles to their management in Canada is because they had been reported to me with concerns about hate speech,' Warman said." [Who reported them? Was Warman's complaint written on his own time?]
"According to Facebook’s community standards code, the company removes content that 'directly attacks' people based on their race, religion, sex or sexual orientation.
'Organizations and people dedicated to promoting hatred against these protected groups are not allowed a presence on Facebook,' it reads. 'As with all of our standards, we rely on our community to report this content to us.' But most of the links Warman had complained about were not taken down, despite having provocative names such as the Worldwide Coalition Against Islam and the Canadian Anti Islamic Force.
