Your  scenario does not and will not fly.

You say that neither Collins or Sleporkura have read this book? How do
you know that? I do not know Mister Slepokura but I am sure that Mister
Collins as a former war corresponded  knows how to research his work and
not making assumptions on this subject.

Perhaps you should find out about a Norman Finkelstein whose parents
were in Warsaw and in Ausschwitz. He said that Goldhagens book is a
disgrace and distortion of the truth. Do not take my word for it. It
cannot be true because I picked it off the German news groups.

Nowhere did I  say that I read this book.

The other problem I have with you that you are posting articles about
the holocaust and like people to believe that everything you say is
true? Perhaps it is the wrong impression I am getting here? Are you
asking me not to believe what come along the way of the Internet because
it cannot be trusted? If that is the case that people should think
twice to visit your web site??

What kind of a society we have today when people like you ask other
people not to believe anybody else and only you??

Why should I have a problem with that? I am not a religious person. I am
only saying that for hundred of years Jews were persecuted because
Christians believed that the Jews were instrumental to get Jesus killed.

Another distortion again.

Well here we go. The Nazis used the word LYING in connection with Jews
every time. Boy you have learned very fast to use this tactics have you?

You show me were I said that you in person would like to censor
holocaust deniers what I said that the people you represent have done
this by using laws who work in their favor. 

You sense of truthfulness is best see in you statement about me lying

it is better to give you the whole story.

The following is the text of the speech made by the veteran journalist
Doug Collins after the forced cancellation of a free speech conference
in
Oliver, British Columbia, slated for March 21, 1998, at Oliver's city
hall. It is published here as a censorship-busting exercise in free
speech. 

=-=-=-=-=

Doug Collins:

These are extraordinary times in Canada. Dangerous ones, too. The attack
on freedom of speech is massive. It has been going on for many years,
beginning in 1971 when the federal hate laws were passed. I was covering
parliament at the time and saw it happen at first hand. Since then
situation has grown progressively worse. It has now reached the stage
where under the B.C. Human Rights Code a person could be taken before a
human rights tribunal for telling a Newfie joke. It just depends on
whether Ujjal Dosanjh and the provincial government want to go after
him;
in other words, whether he is a sanctioned target - sanctioned by the
politically correct and pressure groups like Sol Littman's Simon
Wiesenthal Centre.

It's disappointing that the establishment media are suckers for
propaganda
put out by those groups. All that's needed for them to press the panic
button and produce scare headlines is for the usual trigger words to be
used - neo-Nazi, white supremacist, racist, anti-Semitic. The issues are
rarely debated. So they resort to calling people names. Meanwhile, real
reporting seems to be out of fashion, taking handouts is very much in
fashion. The stories in the Okanagan media have been good examples of
that, as was Thursday's scare story in the Globe & Mail. Call it the
spirit of the times. Forty years ago we saw another spirit of the times.
It was called McCarthyism. Anyone who wanted medicare could be demonized
and seen as a Communist. I lived through those times, too, but many of
today's media weren't around then. So let's forgive them, for they know
not what they do. But it's time some of them grew up.

In the United States none of the anti-free speech laws that decorate the
landscape in Canada would get to first base. They have a Constitution
that
protects free expression. We don't. Our Charter of Rights and Freedoms
is
a leaky vessel, which is why teachers and others can be fired from their
jobs for holding the wrong views. In this country, too, an author like
David Irving can be arrested while making a dinner speech about free
speech, put into handcuffs, and deported on an immigration pretext -
while
many killers and crooks of all kinds are allowed to remain here and
while
Asian gangs roam Vancouver on drive-by shootings. That's something else
the people of Oliver might think about when they sign petitions asking
the
Attorney General in effect to go after Mr. Klatt for running an Internet
service. But once again, let's not blame them. They are victims of a
massive propaganda campaign. That's what I was getting at when I wrote
that famous or infamous column on Hollywood Propaganda. 

My interest in freedom of speech began a long time ago. When Ernst
Zundel
was prosecuted for "spreading false news" in 1985 I appeared for the
defence. I had never heard of the guy but it was incomprehensible to me
that a man could be prosecuted for spreading false news. As I told the
court, Santa Claus spreads false news, the weatherman spreads false
news,
and any reporter who has ever reported what a politician has had to say
is
probably spreading false news. Today's media are particularly good at
spreading false news. The Globe & Mail story about this meeting that
appeared on Thursday was liberally sprinkled with false news, as Oliver
has good reason to know. In the Zundel case, of course, the Supreme
Court
of Canada agreed with me in the end and the false news law was nixed.
Littman can count himself lucky. 

But the anti-free speech experts were not discouraged. They invented
human
rights commissions.The B.C. Human Rights Act, or Code, as it's called
now,
is a disgrace to the province and to the country. The Littmans think
it's
wonderful, of course, but they would, wouldn't they!.

I was charged under that Code. The Canadian Jewish Congress laid a
complaint against me after I'd written a column headed "Hollywood
Propaganda" in which I said that the six million holocaust figure was
nonsense, that the Jewish influence in Hollywood was predominant, and
that
the move Schindler's List should have been called Swindler's List. I
said
that because the man's own wife denounced him as a swindler, and she
should know. As for who runs Hollywood, only last Sunday a two-hour
program was shown on network TV called "Hollywoodism," which confirmed
my
view in spades. I also stated in the column that I was tired of hate
literature in the form of films, and that Schindler's List had to be the
555th. movie on the same subject. Think about that, when the Littmans
and
the Canadian Jewish Congress fulminate about hate literature. How would
you feel if you were a German born long after Hitler was dead and you
were
reminded every day that your grandfather did the wrong thing? Ask
yourselves how you would feel if you were a young German, being told by
Daniel Goldhagen, a Jewish professor in New York, that Germans have a
pathological hatred of Jews? That's what he did in his book Hitler's
Willing Executioners. Isn't that hate literature? But there's not much
fuss about that. The book is freely available in Canada, while books to
which the pressure groups object are not. They are stopped at the
border.
Reverse the Goldhagen thing and consider what the reaction would be if
someone wrote a book claiming that all Jews are crooks. What it boils
down
to of course is that one man's Hitler is another man's Hemingway.

It's now over half a century since the war ended but from what see on TV
and you get in the media you might think it ended two weeks ago. 
As it happens, I know a lot more about Nazis than most of my critics do.
I
was a prisoner of war in Germany until I escaped. I saw Bergen Belsen
concentration camp on the way up through Germany in 1945 after I had
rejoined the forces, and for some years after the war I was a Political
Intelligence Officer working on the de-Nazification of Germany. In
short,
I have seen a lot of real Nazis, not just the ersatz types of which Sol
Littman and that Communist academic David Lethbridge of Salmon Arm are
so
concerned about.

In Lethbridge's case, at least, he seems to be quite UNconcerned about
the
many more millions who died under communism. I might also say that even
if
I was wrong, and I wasn't, in a democracy we are supposed to have the
right to be wrong. Or is that now also out of fashion, with a Ministry
of
Truth headed by Littman and Co.? If so, then Oliver would have to be the
Hate Capital of Canada and I would have to be an agent for neo-Nazis,
which is what he called me on television. And speaking of television,
it's
one thing to denounce people from a distance and quite another to face
them in debate. I debated free speech for an hour with Littman on CBC
Newsworld and in the viewer poll that was taken 73% voted for me and for
free speech.

As for that rights tribunal I faced, even a carefully selected
adjudicator
had to dismiss the case. No hate here, as the North Shore News headline
put it. And why did she throw out the complaint? Not, in my opinion,
because she would not have liked to find me guilty, but because she knew
that if the case had gone to court the complaint would have been found
to
be unconstitutional. Why? Because the B.C. Human Rights Code is a Heresy
Act, pure and simple. A Heresy Act, which is one reason why I am here
today, Mr. Attorney General Ujjal Dosanjh. 
Here are the facts: Under that law, truth is no defence; fair comment is
not a defence, as it is with libel and slander; publication in the
public
interest is not a defence, innocent intent is not a defence, and even
work
done for scientific purposes is not a defence. 

Let me repeat what the lawyer for the B.C. Press Council said: this is a
law that attempts to stifle speech that is not criminal. That's where
we're at in B.C.

On top of all that the government itself can make its own complaints to
its own Human Rights Commission even when no complaint has been entered
by
a third party. So they can get you going and coming even if no-one else
wants to. Talk about Big Brother and George Orwell's 1984! Fortunately,
we
still have courts in this country that can strike down the acts of these
would-be dictators. In 1938 the Alberta Press Act was struck down, just
as
the false news law was later. But the intent of the politicians who pass
such laws is the same as it is in the dictatorships. 

But while the courts cogitate, speech in Canada is not free at all. It
comes at a price, which is why I no longer sing the national anthem. We
are not the True North Strong and Free. When we revert to being strong
and
free I'll start singing again. In my case the defence of a free press
has
cost the North Shore News well over $200,000. Others, like Mr.Fromm,
have
been hounded from their jobs. But there is a bright side to this. In the
case of the North Shore News the public has subscribed nearly $150,000
to
its defence fund, which shows that you can't fool all the people all the
time.

It's not over, though. A man describing himself in his complaint as "a
Jewish person" - Harry Abrams, the founder of B'Nai Brith in Victoria -
has launched another action against me with those rights experts over
there who are led by that leather-clad lesbian, Mary Woo Sims, the chief
commissioner. He complains about six columns, including the Hollywood
propaganda column that was dismissed in the first tribunal. Double
jeopardy? What's that? Let's have a rematch, they say. 

Instead of waiting for handouts from Littman and Lethbridge about white
supremacists and other bogeymen, the media should take the trouble to
examine what's going on. Lethbridge and other free speech artists
screamed
that this meeting should be stopped. So it was. Only meetings of which
he
approved would be allowed. He's a fascist of the Left. Yet the media
quote
him as if he were an oracle. 

If they did take a look at things, the media would find a firm link
between the politically correct of the militant left and government, who
are often one and the same, as in B.C. They would find that Lethbridge
was
a key speaker at, and organizer of, the pro-violence Anti-Racist Action
Trotskyite mob in Toronto that has been barred from school grounds.They
would find that Alan Dutton the big anti-racist in B.C. was instrumental
in getting grants for the ARA from Toronto Metro Council. He himself has
received hundreds of thousand of dollars in grants from government,
which
finances the anti-freedom movement. . They would also find that hotels
have been bullied - terrorized might be a more appropriate term - into
not
renting premises to groups of whom the Lethbridges and the Duttons
disapprove.That happened in Surrey a couple of years ago when the late
Pat
Burns of radio fame was to have been the keynote speaker and I was to
have
spoken on Bill 33, which has become B.C.'s Heresy Act. They would find
that no less a person than the Attorney General of this province
approved
of what they were doing. They would find that the Duttons and Letbridges
act as advisers to the Attonery General. They would find that the
Alberta
Human Rights Commission told a hotel in Edmonton not to give space to a
group that planned to discuss the Canadian Constitution.They would also
find that attempts have been made by the same people to deny groups
space
in public libraries. The same Harry Abrams I mentioned a minute ago is a
leader in that endeavor. He has asked the National Library Association
to
do that, using the trigger word "hate groups". But so far the libraries
have refused to be panicked. And if the media are too lazy to seek all
that out by themselves, I can help them. Yes, that's the kind of stuff
you
should be doing, Oliver Chronicle, Penticton Herald, Globe and Mail,
Vancouver Sun, CBC and all the rest of you. You don't do it, but I can
tell you again this: I'm old enough to have seen all this happen before.

What's going on is really no different in spirit from what the
Brownshirts
got up to in Nazi Germany. In Nazi Germany, it was enough to shout Jew,
Communist or Socialist. Today in Canada it's enough to shout white
supremacist, neo-Nazi, and anti-Semite. The ideologies are different but
the spirit is the same.
A word or two about the Internet. The Internet is seen by the Littmans
as
a threat. How dreadful that people can actually send out messages to the
world without their having to go through the filter of a press dominated
by the poltivally correct. So - kill the Internet, and if the Internet
can’t be killed then ruin anyone, like Mr. Klatt, who doesn't take
orders
and won't act as a censor. I should point out here that I have seen
nothing of what the Littmans and Co are bitching about, nor have most of
the media who echo what Littman says. I had never even heard of the
Charlemagne Hammerheads before this affair blew up and I have never had
lunch with a skinhead, ans what they are supposed to be saying is
certainly not my cup of tea.But I'll tell you something. I can be my own
censor, thanks very much. I don't need Littman's help.The same option is
open to all Internet users. But Littman can't trust the public. He wants
to treat people like children, while yelling about discrimination. To
which I say, physician, heal thyself. 

Yes, the idea is to kill the Internet, or at least the controversial
voices on it that Littman doesn't like. And of course there are nasty
voices on it, although I've never bothered to tune in to them. But don't
be fooled by the idea that Littman's censorship would end with stopping
them. Let me give you an example of what I mean. When the Barrett
government got going on its human rights program in the early 1970s we
were told that all they wanted to do was to ensure fair play in hiring
and
housing. But these things begin small and end large, and today human
rights commissions in this country are a menace to human rights. Rights
have become wrongs, and in today in B.C. the human rights gang is a
direct
threat to freedom of the press. 

It is also said that you can learn how to make bombs on the Internet. So
you can. But you can also learn how to make bombs by other means. The
left-wing Squamish Five didn't need any Internet to learn how to make
and
explode bombs in the 1980s, and people intent on making bombs today
don't
need the Internet either.

When Winston Churchill lost the British election in 1945, he said,
"Trust
the people." I follow that precept and it's my hope that in spite of the
demonization of dissidents that ‘s going on now, Canadians will hold
steady. We've been through crazy times before and survived, and I'm here
today in the expectation that we'll survive this one. 

Meanwhile, Mayor Larson should put on her thinking cap instead of
pandering to the Littmans and giving way to bullies. Then there's
councillor Terry Shafer. He has said that the matter of this meeting is
a
tough issue, particularly when the veterans are celebrating the creation
of Canadian Legion here. They fought, he said so as to allow us the
privilege of expressing our opinions, NO MATTER HOW AWFUL THOSE OPINIONS
MAY BE.

What do you know about those opinions, councillor? Have you heard or
read
any of them or are you taking the time from Littman and Lethbridge? And
what about your local Liberal MLA, Bill Barisoff? Has he had anything
critical to say about the NDP's Heresy Law? If he has I must have been
snoozing. But he's reported as telling Litttman he'd be happy to work
with
him to ensure that hate literature that violates the Criminal Code does
not appear anywhere in Canada. Does he take Littman's word for what hate
literature is? If you ask me, he's a bit like the Red Queen in Alice in
Wonderland who said, sentence first, trial later. 

I'll leave you with a couple of other thoughts. A columnist said in
print
last year that I give free speech a bad name. I replied by pointing out
that free speech has always had a bad name. Free speech had a bad name
when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of Wittingen
cathedral. It had a bad name when John Tyndale was burned at the stake
for
translating the Bible into English. It had a bad name when John Milton
wrote that truth and falsehood should grapple freely. It had a bad name
when the Ayatolla in Iran proclaimed a death sentence on Salman Rushdie,
and when the communists were up before the un-American Activities
Committee. It had a bad name two thousand years ago, when a man called
Jesus was nailed to the cross. One might almost say that free speech has
NEVER had a GOOD name, and thanks to the Littmans and the Lethbridges
and
others like them free speech certainly has a bad name today. As I
mentioned earlier, if you are for free speech you are a neo-Nazi, a
crypto-Nazi, a white supremacist, or an anti-Semite. 

This sort of thing is not confined to Canada. It exists right across the
Western world. In Australia, Terry Lane, a well-known print and radio
commentator got into trouble with the local Littmans and wrote a letter
to
the Australian Jewish News in 1992 in which he stated the following:

"The Zionist lobby in this country is malicious, implacable, mendacious
and dangerous. What's more, once the expression anti-Semitism hits the
air, or, heaven forfend, the sacred six million is uttered...we are
thrown
to the jackals. I surrender. To the Zionists I say, you win. To the
Palestinians, forgive my cowardice." 

In 1938, the Supreme Court of Canada had this to say when it struck down
the Alberta Press Act:

"Freedom of discussion is essential to enlighten public opinion in a
democratic state. It cannot be curtailed without affecting the right of
people to be informed, independent of government, concerning matters of
public interest. There must be untrammelled publication of news and
opinion." UNTRAMMELLED! It stated further that if the Social Credit law
were allowed to stand, the Socred doctrine would become a kind of
religious dogma that the people would buck at their peril. 

If the Littmans and other critics have their way, their dogmas would
become a kind of religion, too, that we would buck at our peril, and we
are already are buckinjg at our peril. So I say to hell with them, and
you
can quote me.
How about it, Mayor Larson and others who are running for cover? How
about
it, Bill Barisoff? I can tell you where you should stand. You should be
standing right here with the rest of us, not passing by on the other
side
of the street.
I will conclude by saying that I am 77 years of age, that I defended
freedom in the 1940s when Hitler was on the loose, in the 1950s when
McCarthy was on the loose, in the 1970s when the federal hate laws were
passed, in the 1990s when those idiots in Victoria passed their misnamed
Human Rights Act, and that I shall go on defending freedom until the day
I
die.

Thank you.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

This has been done already. Using words like THE Germans or THEY. Now a
Mister Daniel Goldhagen, Jewish professor in New York say’s that all
German have a pathological hatred of Jews and wrote a book about this
"Willing Executioners. You think this book will be banned in Canada for
promoting hatred? What would the reaction be if he wrote ALL JEWS ARE
CROOKS? One prominent Jew said; "The world should never stop to hate
Germans." In earlier times Christians said: The Jews killed Jesus.


---------------------------------------------------------------------
What have all this statements in common? This are words used in everyday
speech to get a point across and in no way means that 100% of any group
are bad people. For instance Nazi’s. Who is a Nazi? Well I must have
been one for sure. In 1945 my brother, me and father had to go to court
to be denazified. I mean what we done was a very very serious offence.
My brother and me were 12 years old in 1945. One question we were asked,
if we do know anything about some concentration camps. We said no. One
guy on this panel started to grin said "Welllll they didn’t Knoww"??

What does the word seems rather strange mean to you? It is obvious that
I do not approve of any kind of censorship.

How can you contemn this man for asking a funny question? It would be
different if he is able to say what he wants but likes to censor
everybody else like you people do.

Perhaps he was denied the opportunity to represent his side on the
Internet. As a result of this, he may have said OK censor the others
too???

Vancouver Province Sunday March 29, 1998
Trio charged in connection with razor blades in mail.
Darren Nathan Barbarash age 28 and Rebecca Rubin age 23 are charged with
possession of explosive.

Police began a probe in 1995 after Toronto Holocaust denier Ernst Zundel
received a mouse trap rigged with razor blades in the mail.

Could it be that the purpose of your organization is to incite hatred
against people like Zundel

BTW. Why don’t you have a link to Zundels web side when you are so
interested about what Zundel is doing? Oh I got it; it is against the
law for him to spread his gospel?

Well perhaps the both are lying. But than again you ask me to take your

people of lying because they the have a different opinion. Obviously it
is people like you who are interested to bring him down. It should be

Does this now mean that news papers, radio, TV cannot be trusted? You
and cannot quote anything what is going on around us because it could
not be true? Amazing. 

Newspaper clipping in the Vancouver Province tells me that Collins won
his rights skirmish. It also says that his column was nasty but didn’t
violate the code.

It also say’s that the Canadian Jewish Congress filed a case and desist
order. Fact is that you people were trying to censor him because he was
talking about your holocaust industry.

It is the way it is done What you people are doing here is constantly
crying to get things your way. I f you were a child in a family who need

That is true. Take a look how some people are trying to fault immigrants
and racial minorities for everything what is wrong today. Looks like
Germany in the past were the Jews were the easy targed.

It was this statement below I made when you accused me of lying. What I
am saying that you people are accusing others of lying and pointed out
that the Nazis were using the same words about the Jews.

 Surely, you do work for an organization and can hardly claim to be

Was Sol Littman and B’Nai Brith instrumental for shutting down the

Fact is that he mentioned Goldhagen and his book. It make no difference
wherever he was using a quote to prove his point. In all likelihood he
used his own interpretation to get a point across.

McVay is saying that he cannot find any reverence about the statement
Doug Collins made about Goldhagen and therefore it must be a lie. He
could be right when he says that he cannot find it in his book.
I gave an example in mentioning the book "Other Losses" and how many
revisions have been made to it.

I am sure that you and I do not support any group or person who are out
to make somebody’s live difficult because the have a different religion,
culture or color.

For me because I belong to a different culture group and experienced
hate against myselfe on account of this, It is very important to stamp
out hatred in any form.

you?

That statement shows that you are not able to put your facts together or
by design ignore some of the statements I made. Let me repeat.

You informed my that you could find nowhere in Goldhagens book any
reverence to Collins statement. In return I gave a explanation that your
statement can be true because books are under constant revision. As an
example I gave a explanation what can happen by using Other losses as an
example Here is my quote again.

McVay could be telling the truth when he says that he cannot find this
quote in his book. Let me explain to you.
I have a Paperback Book in my possession. I am talking about the book "
Other Losses" I had this book first from the library. This book was
reprinted in October 1989, February 1990 and May 1991. ISBN:
0-7736-7309-1
There are many changes from the original I read in the library. As a
matter of fact the one I do have now is a revised edition. I am sure you
know what revised means.

This statement says it all. I am sure other people here reading your
posting will see what you are up too!

Perhaps you quote a lie every day and expect people to believe you?
Nowhere I said that everybody hates my Perhaps you feel that everybody
hates you? Why should I go and  verify information like this? Open your
eyes and have a look. This is a news group where people discuss the pro
and cons of any subject: You expect people to go to your web side  for
the same reason like many others to listen to your point of view. You
can convert some but not all.

It is your tactics to achieve your goal that are highly suspect.

You must be a real clown when you thing for one moment to get away with
your nonsense. You are trying to convince people that I am publishing
false news on purpose. In this your way to twist thing around.

I hope you go ahead with your style so people can really see what you
are. I am looking forward to your next response so you have a chance to
expose yourself and your supporters so people can see what tactics you
are using to suppress people with a different view.

Remember what John F Kennedy said about some Germans. "Berliners are
like eggs. When you boil them, they get  hard. If you boil them longer,
the get harder."

Go back to your bosses for more instructions before you make your next
move. I am waiting. I do know how to handle riffraff like you any day

Grow up for once in your live and be honest with yourself  A record in

Well perhaps the both are lying. But than again you ask me to take your
word and you could be lying too. Well I do not have the habit to accuse
people of lying because they the have a different opinion. Obviously it
is people like you who are interested to bring him down. It should be
your task to find out!

This has been done already. Using words like THE Germans or THEY. Now a
Mister Daniel Goldhagen, Jewish professor in New York say’s that all
German have a pathological hatred of Jews and wrote a book about this
"Willing Executioners. You think this book will be banned in Canada for
promoting hatred? What would the reaction be if he wrote ALL JEWS ARE
CROOKS? One prominent Jew said; "The world should never stop to hate
Germans." In earlier times Christians said: The Jews killed Jesus.

Really? You like to bring Collins down? Let me tell you boy Mister
Collins gets more credibility by the minute when you are writing like
this.

You people?
It is obvious to me that you could not run a fruit stand of your own. So
why don’t you go and tell me and others who is your sponsor, so you can
answer yourself what YOU PEOPLE means!!

Is this the way, and again I am saying you people operate to silence
people. Who are this people in your organization with so much power?

You know? You are giving Jewish people  bad name. The Jewish people I
met were smart decent people. You do not have this qualification.

You have to run this by me again: You like me to admit that I do not
know what Goldhagen had to say? Should I buy everybody’s book to find
out what they have to say? Listen boy Mister Collins made reference to
mister Goldhagen and now you are trying to deny me the right to say what
he had to say about him. Are you sure that you have all your faculties? 
Mr Slepokuo had the courtesy to post Mister Collins speech which made
reverence to Goldhagen. Now a dirt like you comes along that I should
not use this reverence because it does not fit into your hate
propoganty? Right? Oh I know, now you are going to tell me that YOU
PEOPLE are the chosen ones and have special right which cannot be given
to others. What a clown!!

It was not Slepokuos job to find out if collins was telling the truth.
Nowhere did he say the Collins was right or wrong on this!

Did I know that this assertion was false? That is easy to say. Right now
you are telling me that it is false. Why should I trust you? because you
say so? Suppose Collins uses the same argument, what happen than?

On faith? What nonsense. I read news papers every day and make the
decision what is interesting  to talk about.

I don not particular care if you are interested or not. Your action here
clearly shows that you do not approve of what other people have to say
when it does not fit in you plans.

The only time you are your own boss when you go to your toilet to have a
piss. The rest of  the time you are playing a team song. Go and grow up.
Telling me that you have no connections is absurd.

Lets get it in your head, you are a nobody to begin with and are acting
as a mouthpiece for a big organization. It doesn’t matter what you say.
Fact is that your sponsors are trying to censor people you do not agree
with. You do not like what Collins has to say and you  made sure that
Zundel is silenced. As you noticed I was using the word YOU.

You are part of an organization wherever you like it or not. Life with
it

Perhaps no is the time for you to make the proper exit. Do it soon, so I
can put the manhole cover back on, Will you?

Maybe McVay has to win at all cost? Or he is afraid to show his
weakness? Or the reverse gear in his car is gone? Or he feels things 
could go out of control. Perhaps he has no instructions from higher up
what to do next. So many reasons and no easy answers. Could it be that
Stalin is beyond his plan not to listen to somebody else’s IDEAS?  
Naaa.  

He is just ignorant.

Where am I denying the Holocaust BOY??

You know the saying Whose bread I eat his song I sing BOY? What would
you do without your sponsors BOY?
To make your day BOY I will post Collins speech again and again till it
comes out of your ear BOY What filthy person are you anyway??
Here comes your wake up call again and let see how far you will go with
your distortions next time. You stink, take a bath you need it BOY.


The following is the text of the speech made by the veteran journalist
Doug Collins after the forced cancellation of a free speech conference
in Oliver, British Columbia, slated for March 21, 1998, at Oliver's 
city hall. It is published here as a censorship-busting exercise in free
speech. 

=-=-=-=-=

Doug Collins:

These are extraordinary times in Canada. Dangerous ones, too. The attack
on freedom of speech is massive. It has been going on for many years,
beginning in 1971 when the federal hate laws were passed. I was covering
parliament at the time and saw it happen at first hand. Since then
situation has grown progressively worse. It has now reached the stage
where under the B.C. Human Rights Code a person could be taken before a
human rights tribunal for telling a Newfie joke. It just depends on
whether Ujjal Dosanjh and the provincial government want to go after
him; in other words, whether he is a sanctioned target - sanctioned by
the politically correct and pressure groups like Sol Littman's Simon
Wiesenthal Centre.

It's disappointing that the establishment media are suckers for
propaganda
put out by those groups. All that's needed for them to press the panic
button and produce scare headlines is for the usual trigger words to be
used - neo-Nazi, white supremacist, racist, anti-Semitic. The issues are
rarely debated. So they resort to calling people names. Meanwhile, real
reporting seems to be out of fashion, taking handouts is very much in
fashion. The stories in the Okanagan media have been good examples of
that, as was Thursday's scare story in the Globe & Mail. Call it the
spirit of the times. Forty years ago we saw another spirit of the times.
It was called McCarthyism. Anyone who wanted medicare could be demonized
and seen as a Communist. I lived through those times, too, but many of
today's media weren't around then. So let's forgive them, for they know
not what they do. But it's time some of them grew up.

In the United States none of the anti-free speech laws that decorate the
landscape in Canada would get to first base. They have a Constitution
that protects free expression. We don't. Our Charter of Rights and 
Freedoms is a leaky vessel, which is why teachers and others can be 
fired from their jobs for holding the wrong views. In this country, 
too, an author like David Irving can be arrested while making a dinner
speech about free speech, put into handcuffs, and deported on an 
immigration pretext - while many killers and crooks of all kinds are 
allowed to remain here and while Asian gangs roam Vancouver on drive-by
shootings. That's something else the people of Oliver might think about
when they sign petitions asking the Attorney General in effect to go 
after Mr. Klatt for running an Internet service. But once again, let's
not blame them. They are victims of a massive propaganda campaign. 
That's what I was getting at when I wrote that famous or infamous 
column on Hollywood Propaganda. 

My interest in freedom of speech began a long time ago. When Ernst
Zundel was prosecuted for "spreading false news" in 1985 I appeared 
for the defence. I had never heard of the guy but it was
incomprehensible
to me that a man could be prosecuted for spreading false news. As I told
the court, Santa Claus spreads false news, the weatherman spreads false
news,and any reporter who has ever reported what a politician has had 
to say is probably spreading false news. Today's media are particularly 
good at spreading false news. The Globe & Mail story about this meeting 
that appeared on Thursday was liberally sprinkled with false news, as 
Oliver has good reason to know. In the Zundel case, of course, the 
Supreme Court of Canada agreed with me in the end and the false news law
was nixed.Littman can count himself lucky. 

But the anti-free speech experts were not discouraged. They invented
human rights commissions.The B.C. Human Rights Act, or Code, as it's 
called now,is a disgrace to the province and to the country. The 
Littmans think it's wonderful, of course, but they would, wouldn't 
they!.

I was charged under that Code. The Canadian Jewish Congress laid a
complaint against me after I'd written a column headed "Hollywood
Propaganda" in which I said that the six million holocaust figure was
nonsense, that the Jewish influence in Hollywood was predominant, and
that the move Schindler's List should have been called Swindler's List.
I said that because the man's own wife denounced him as a swindler, 
and she should know. As for who runs Hollywood, only last Sunday a 
two-hour program was shown on network TV called "Hollywoodism," which
confirmed my view in spades. I also stated in the column that I was 
tired of hate literature in the form of films, and that Schindler's 
List had to be the 555th. movie on the same subject. Think about 
that, when the Littmans and the Canadian Jewish Congress fulminate 
about hate literature. How would you feel if you were a German born 
long after Hitler was dead and you were reminded every day that your
grandfather did the wrong thing? Ask yourselves how you would feel if
you were a young German, being told by Daniel Goldhagen, a Jewish 
professor in New York, that Germans have a pathological hatred of Jews?
That's what he did in his book Hitler's Willing Executioners. Isn't 
that hate literature? But there's not much fuss about that. The book 
is freely available in Canada, while books to which the pressure groups
object are not. They are stopped at the border.

Reverse the Goldhagen thing and consider what the reaction would be if
someone wrote a book claiming that all Jews are crooks. What it boils
down to of course is that one man's Hitler is another man's Hemingway.

It's now over half a century since the war ended but from what see on TV
and you get in the media you might think it ended two weeks ago. 
As it happens, I know a lot more about Nazis than most of my critics do.
I was a prisoner of war in Germany until I escaped. I saw Bergen Belsen
concentration camp on the way up through Germany in 1945 after I had
rejoined the forces, and for some years after the war I was a Political
Intelligence Officer working on the de-Nazification of Germany. In
short,I have seen a lot of real Nazis, not just the ersatz types of 
which Sol Littman and that Communist academic David Lethbridge of 
Salmon Arm are so oncerned about.

In Lethbridge's case, at least, he seems to be quite UNconcerned about
the many more millions who died under communism. I might also say that
even if I was wrong, and I wasn't, in a democracy we are supposed to
have
the right to be wrong. Or is that now also out of fashion, with a
Ministry
of Truth headed by Littman and Co.? If so, then Oliver would have to be
the
Hate Capital of Canada and I would have to be an agent for
neo-Nazis,which
is what he called me on television. And speaking of television, it's
one thing to denounce people from a distance and quite another to face
them in debate. I debated free speech for an hour with Littman on CBC
Newsworld and in the viewer poll that was taken 73% voted for me and for
free speech.

As for that rights tribunal I faced, even a carefully selected
adjudicator had to dismiss the case. No hate here, as the North Shore 
News headline put it. And why did she throw out the complaint? Not, in 
my opinion, because she would not have liked to find me guilty, but 
because she knew that if the case had gone to court the complaint would 
have been found to be unconstitutional. Why? Because the B.C. Human
Rights
Code is a Heresy Act, pure and simple. A Heresy Act, which is one reason 
why I am here today, Mr. Attorney General Ujjal Dosanjh. Here are the 
facts: Under that law, truth is no defence; fair comment is not a
defence,
as it is with libel and slander; publication in the public
interest is not a defence, innocent intent is not a defence, and even
work done for scientific purposes is not a defence. 

Let me repeat what the lawyer for the B.C. Press Council said: this is a
law that attempts to stifle speech that is not criminal. That's where
we're at in B.C.

On top of all that the government itself can make its own complaints to
its own Human Rights Commission even when no complaint has been entered
by a third party. So they can get you going and coming even if no-one
else
wants to. Talk about Big Brother and George Orwell's 1984! Fortunately,
we still have courts in this country that can strike down the acts of 
these would-be dictators. In 1938 the Alberta Press Act was struck down,
just as the false news law was later. But the intent of the politicians 
who pass such laws is the same as it is in the dictatorships. 

But while the courts cogitate, speech in Canada is not free at all. It
comes at a price, which is why I no longer sing the national anthem. We
are not the True North Strong and Free. When we revert to being strong
and free I'll start singing again. In my case the defence of a free 
press has cost the North Shore News well over $200,000. Others, like 
Mr.Fromm,have been hounded from their jobs. But there is a bright side
to this. In the case of the North Shore News the public has subscribed 
nearly $150,000 to its defence fund, which shows that you can't fool 
all the people all the time.

It's not over, though. A man describing himself in his complaint as "a
Jewish person" - Harry Abrams, the founder of B'Nai Brith in Victoria -
has launched another action against me with those rights experts over
there who are led by that leather-clad lesbian, Mary Woo Sims, the chief
commissioner. He complains about six columns, including the Hollywood
propaganda column that was dismissed in the first tribunal. Double
jeopardy? What's that? Let's have a rematch, they say. 

Instead of waiting for handouts from Littman and Lethbridge about white
supremacists and other bogeymen, the media should take the trouble to
examine what's going on. Lethbridge and other free speech artists
screamed that this meeting should be stopped. So it was. Only meetings 
of which he approved would be allowed. He's a fascist of the Left. Yet 
the media quote him as if he were an oracle. 

If they did take a look at things, the media would find a firm link
between the politically correct of the militant left and government, who
are often one and the same, as in B.C. They would find that Lethbridge
was a key speaker at, and organizer of, the pro-violence Anti-Racist 
Action Trotskyite mob in Toronto that has been barred from school 
grounds.They would find that Alan Dutton the big anti-racist in B.C. 
was instrumental in getting grants for the ARA from Toronto Metro 
Council. He himself has received hundreds of thousand of dollars in 
grants from government, which finances the anti-freedom movement. . 
They would also find that hotels have been bullied - terrorized might
be a more appropriate term - into not renting premises to groups of 
whom the Lethbridges and the Duttons disapprove.That happened in 
Surrey a couple of years ago when the late Pat Burns of radio fame 
was to have been the keynote speaker and I was to have spoken on Bill 
33, which has become B.C.'s Heresy Act. They would find that no less 
a person than the Attorney General of this province approved of what 
they were doing. They would find that the Duttons and Letbridges
act as advisers to the Attonery General. They would find that the
Alberta Human Rights Commission told a hotel in Edmonton not to give
space to a group that planned to discuss the Canadian Constitution.
They would also find that attempts have been made by the same people
to deny groups space in public libraries. The same Harry Abrams I 
mentioned a minute ago is a leader in that endeavor. He has asked the 
National Library Association to do that, using the trigger word "hate 
groups". But so far the libraries have refused to be panicked. And if
the media are too lazy to seek all that out by themselves, I can help 
them. Yes, that's the kind of stuff you should be doing, Oliver
Chronicle,
Penticton Herald, Globe and Mail, Vancouver Sun, CBC and all the rest of
you. You don't do it, but I can tell you again this: I'm old enough to 
have seen all this happen before.

What's going on is really no different in spirit from what the
Brownshirts got up to in Nazi Germany. In Nazi Germany, it was enough 
to shout Jew, Communist or Socialist. Today in Canada it's enough to 
shout white supremacist, neo-Nazi, and anti-Semite. The ideologies are
different but the spirit is the same. A word or two about the Internet.
The Internet is seen by the Littmans as a threat. How dreadful that 
people can actually send out messages to the world without their having 
to go through the filter of a press dominated by the poltivally correct.
So - kill the Internet, and if the Internet can’t be killed then ruin 
anyone, like Mr. Klatt, who doesn't take orders and won't act as a
censor.
I should point out here that I have seen nothing of what the Littmans
and
Co are bitching about, nor have most of the media who echo what Littman 
says. I had never even heard of the Charlemagne Hammerheads before this 
affair blew up and I have never had lunch with a skinhead, ans what they
are supposed to be saying is certainly not my cup of tea.But I'll tell
you
something. I can be my own censor, thanks very much. I don't need
Littman's 
help.The same option is open to all Internet users. But Littman can't
trust
the public. He wants to treat people like children, while yelling about 
discrimination. To which I say, physician, heal thyself. 

Yes, the idea is to kill the Internet, or at least the controversial
voices on it that Littman doesn't like. And of course there are nasty
voices on it, although I've never bothered to tune in to them. But don't
be fooled by the idea that Littman's censorship would end with stopping
them. Let me give you an example of what I mean. When the Barrett
government got going on its human rights program in the early 1970s we
were told that all they wanted to do was to ensure fair play in hiring
and housing. But these things begin small and end large, and today human
rights commissions in this country are a menace to human rights. Rights
have become wrongs, and in today in B.C. the human rights gang is a
direct threat to freedom of the press. 

It is also said that you can learn how to make bombs on the Internet. So
you can. But you can also learn how to make bombs by other means. The
left-wing Squamish Five didn't need any Internet to learn how to make
and explode bombs in the 1980s, and people intent on making bombs today
don't need the Internet either.

When Winston Churchill lost the British election in 1945, he said,
"Trust the people." I follow that precept and it's my hope that in 
spite of the demonization of dissidents that ‘s going on now, 
Canadians will hold steady. We've been through crazy times before
and survived, and I'm here today in the expectation that we'll survive
this one. 

Meanwhile, Mayor Larson should put on her thinking cap instead of
pandering to the Littmans and giving way to bullies. Then there's
councillor Terry Shafer. He has said that the matter of this meeting is
a tough issue, particularly when the veterans are celebrating the 
creation of Canadian Legion here. They fought, he said so as to allow 
us the privilege of expressing our opinions, NO MATTER HOW AWFUL 
THOSE OPINIONS MAY BE.

What do you know about those opinions, councillor? Have you heard or
read any of them or are you taking the time from Littman and Lethbridge?
And what about your local Liberal MLA, Bill Barisoff? Has he had
anything
critical to say about the NDP's Heresy Law? If he has I must have been
snoozing. But he's reported as telling Litttman he'd be happy to work
with him to ensure that hate literature that violates the Criminal Code
does not appear anywhere in Canada. Does he take Littman's word for what
hate literature is? If you ask me, he's a bit like the Red Queen in
Alice
in Wonderland who said, sentence first, trial later. 

I'll leave you with a couple of other thoughts. A columnist said in
print last year that I give free speech a bad name. I replied by
pointing
out that free speech has always had a bad name. Free speech had a bad
name
when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of Wittingen
cathedral. It had a bad name when John Tyndale was burned at the stake
for translating the Bible into English. It had a bad name when John
Milton
wrote that truth and falsehood should grapple freely. It had a bad name
when the Ayatolla in Iran proclaimed a death sentence on Salman Rushdie,
and when the communists were up before the un-American Activities
Committee. It had a bad name two thousand years ago, when a man called
Jesus was nailed to the cross. One might almost say that free speech has
NEVER had a GOOD name, and thanks to the Littmans and the Lethbridges
and others like them free speech certainly has a bad name today. As I
mentioned earlier, if you are for free speech you are a neo-Nazi, a
crypto-Nazi, a white supremacist, or an anti-Semite. 

This sort of thing is not confined to Canada. It exists right across the
Western world. In Australia, Terry Lane, a well-known print and radio
commentator got into trouble with the local Littmans and wrote a letter
to the Australian Jewish News in 1992 in which he stated the following:

"The Zionist lobby in this country is malicious, implacable, mendacious
and dangerous. What's more, once the expression anti-Semitism hits the
air, or, heaven forfend, the sacred six million is uttered...we are
thrown to the jackals. I surrender. To the Zionists I say, you win. 
To the Palestinians, forgive my cowardice." 

In 1938, the Supreme Court of Canada had this to say when it struck down
the Alberta Press Act:

"Freedom of discussion is essential to enlighten public opinion in a
democratic state. It cannot be curtailed without affecting the right of
people to be informed, independent of government, concerning matters of
public interest. There must be untrammelled publication of news and
opinion." UNTRAMMELLED! It stated further that if the Social Credit law
were allowed to stand, the Socred doctrine would become a kind of
religious dogma that the people would buck at their peril.

This has been done already. Using words like THE Germans or THEY. Now a
Mister Daniel Goldhagen, Jewish professor in New York say’s that all
German have a pathological hatred of Jews and wrote a book about this
"Willing Executioners. You think this book will be banned in Canada for
promoting hatred? What would the reaction be if he wrote ALL JEWS ARE
CROOKS? One prominent Jew said; "The world should never stop to hate
Germans." In earlier times Christians said: The Jews killed Jesus.

A Mister Oerest Slepokura quotet A Mister Doug Collins speech from March
21, 1998.
In there and this are the words:

How would you feel if you were a German born long after Hitler was dead
and you were reminded every day that your grandfather did the wrong
thing? Ask yourselves how you would feel if you were a young German,
being told by Daniel Goldhagen, a Jewish professor in New York, that
Germans have a pathalogigal hatred of Jews?  That’s what he did in his
book "Hitler’s Willing Executioners". But there’s not much fuss about
that.

The next episode: You boy are saying that I quoted Goldhagen. Where are
the quotation marks?
Were is what my dictionary say. You Ken BOY are a fraud and a disgrace
to your community

Quote: Somebodys word repeated exactly by another person from a person
pasage  or speech.

Quotation marks: One pair of marks to mark used to indicate the
beginning and end of a quotqtion.

One more time Collins speech for you.

The following is the text of the speech made by the veteran journalist
Doug Collins after the forced cancellation of a free speech conference
in Oliver, British Columbia, slated for March 21, 1998, at Oliver's 
city hall. It is published here as a censorship-busting exercise in free
speech. 

=-=-=-=-=

Doug Collins:

These are extraordinary times in Canada. Dangerous ones, too. The attack
on freedom of speech is massive. It has been going on for many years,
beginning in 1971 when the federal hate laws were passed. I was covering
parliament at the time and saw it happen at first hand. Since then
situation has grown progressively worse. It has now reached the stage
where under the B.C. Human Rights Code a person could be taken before a
human rights tribunal for telling a Newfie joke. It just depends on
whether Ujjal Dosanjh and the provincial government want to go after
him; in other words, whether he is a sanctioned target - sanctioned by
the politically correct and pressure groups like Sol Littman's Simon
Wiesenthal Centre.

It's disappointing that the establishment media are suckers for
propaganda
put out by those groups. All that's needed for them to press the panic
button and produce scare headlines is for the usual trigger words to be
used - neo-Nazi, white supremacist, racist, anti-Semitic. The issues are
rarely debated. So they resort to calling people names. Meanwhile, real
reporting seems to be out of fashion, taking handouts is very much in
fashion. The stories in the Okanagan media have been good examples of
that, as was Thursday's scare story in the Globe & Mail. Call it the
spirit of the times. Forty years ago we saw another spirit of the times.
It was called McCarthyism. Anyone who wanted medicare could be demonized
and seen as a Communist. I lived through those times, too, but many of
today's media weren't around then. So let's forgive them, for they know
not what they do. But it's time some of them grew up.

In the United States none of the anti-free speech laws that decorate the
landscape in Canada would get to first base. They have a Constitution
that protects free expression. We don't. Our Charter of Rights and 
Freedoms is a leaky vessel, which is why teachers and others can be 
fired from their jobs for holding the wrong views. In this country, 
too, an author like David Irving can be arrested while making a dinner
speech about free speech, put into handcuffs, and deported on an 
immigration pretext - while many killers and crooks of all kinds are 
allowed to remain here and while Asian gangs roam Vancouver on drive-by
shootings. That's something else the people of Oliver might think about
when they sign petitions asking the Attorney General in effect to go 
after Mr. Klatt for running an Internet service. But once again, let's
not blame them. They are victims of a massive propaganda campaign. 
That's what I was getting at when I wrote that famous or infamous 
column on Hollywood Propaganda. 

My interest in freedom of speech began a long time ago. When Ernst
Zundel was prosecuted for "spreading false news" in 1985 I appeared 
for the defence. I had never heard of the guy but it was
incomprehensible
to me that a man could be prosecuted for spreading false news. As I told
the court, Santa Claus spreads false news, the weatherman spreads false
news,and any reporter who has ever reported what a politician has had 
to say is probably spreading false news. Today's media are particularly 
good at spreading false news. The Globe & Mail story about this meeting 
that appeared on Thursday was liberally sprinkled with false news, as 
Oliver has good reason to know. In the Zundel case, of course, the 
Supreme Court of Canada agreed with me in the end and the false news law
was nixed.Littman can count himself lucky. 

But the anti-free speech experts were not discouraged. They invented
human rights commissions.The B.C. Human Rights Act, or Code, as it's 
called now,is a disgrace to the province and to the country. The 
Littmans think it's wonderful, of course, but they would, wouldn't 
they!.

I was charged under that Code. The Canadian Jewish Congress laid a
complaint against me after I'd written a column headed "Hollywood
Propaganda" in which I said that the six million holocaust figure was
nonsense, that the Jewish influence in Hollywood was predominant, and
that the move Schindler's List should have been called Swindler's List.
I said that because the man's own wife denounced him as a swindler, 
and she should know. As for who runs Hollywood, only last Sunday a 
two-hour program was shown on network TV called "Hollywoodism," which
confirmed my view in spades. I also stated in the column that I was 
tired of hate literature in the form of films, and that Schindler's 
List had to be the 555th. movie on the same subject. Think about 
that, when the Littmans and the Canadian Jewish Congress fulminate 
about hate literature. How would you feel if you were a German born 
long after Hitler was dead and you were reminded every day that your
grandfather did the wrong thing? Ask yourselves how you would feel if
you were a young German, being told by Daniel Goldhagen, a Jewish 
professor in New York, that Germans have a pathological hatred of Jews?
That's what he did in his book Hitler's Willing Executioners. Isn't 
that hate literature? But there's not much fuss about that. The book 
is freely available in Canada, while books to which the pressure groups
object are not. They are stopped at the border.

Reverse the Goldhagen thing and consider what the reaction would be if
someone wrote a book claiming that all Jews are crooks. What it boils
down to of course is that one man's Hitler is another man's Hemingway.

It's now over half a century since the war ended but from what see on TV
and you get in the media you might think it ended two weeks ago. 
As it happens, I know a lot more about Nazis than most of my critics do.
I was a prisoner of war in Germany until I escaped. I saw Bergen Belsen
concentration camp on the way up through Germany in 1945 after I had
rejoined the forces, and for some years after the war I was a Political
Intelligence Officer working on the de-Nazification of Germany. In
short,I have seen a lot of real Nazis, not just the ersatz types of 
which Sol Littman and that Communist academic David Lethbridge of 
Salmon Arm are so oncerned about.

In Lethbridge's case, at least, he seems to be quite UNconcerned about
the many more millions who died under communism. I might also say that
even if I was wrong, and I wasn't, in a democracy we are supposed to
have
the right to be wrong. Or is that now also out of fashion, with a
Ministry
of Truth headed by Littman and Co.? If so, then Oliver would have to be
the
Hate Capital of Canada and I would have to be an agent for
neo-Nazis,which
is what he called me on television. And speaking of television, it's
one thing to denounce people from a distance and quite another to face
them in debate. I debated free speech for an hour with Littman on CBC
Newsworld and in the viewer poll that was taken 73% voted for me and for
free speech.

As for that rights tribunal I faced, even a carefully selected
adjudicator had to dismiss the case. No hate here, as the North Shore 
News headline put it. And why did she throw out the complaint? Not, in 
my opinion, because she would not have liked to find me guilty, but 
because she knew that if the case had gone to court the complaint would 
have been found to be unconstitutional. Why? Because the B.C. Human
Rights
Code is a Heresy Act, pure and simple. A Heresy Act, which is one reason 
why I am here today, Mr. Attorney General Ujjal Dosanjh. Here are the 
facts: Under that law, truth is no defence; fair comment is not a
defence,
as it is with libel and slander; publication in the public
interest is not a defence, innocent intent is not a defence, and even
work done for scientific purposes is not a defence. 

Let me repeat what the lawyer for the B.C. Press Council said: this is a
law that attempts to stifle speech that is not criminal. That's where
we're at in B.C.

On top of all that the government itself can make its own complaints to
its own Human Rights Commission even when no complaint has been entered
by a third party. So they can get you going and coming even if no-one
else
wants to. Talk about Big Brother and George Orwell's 1984! Fortunately,
we still have courts in this country that can strike down the acts of 
these would-be dictators. In 1938 the Alberta Press Act was struck down,
just as the false news law was later. But the intent of the politicians 
who pass such laws is the same as it is in the dictatorships. 

But while the courts cogitate, speech in Canada is not free at all. It
comes at a price, which is why I no longer sing the national anthem. We
are not the True North Strong and Free. When we revert to being strong
and free I'll start singing again. In my case the defence of a free 
press has cost the North Shore News well over $200,000. Others, like 
Mr.Fromm,have been hounded from their jobs. But there is a bright side
to this. In the case of the North Shore News the public has subscribed 
nearly $150,000 to its defence fund, which shows that you can't fool 
all the people all the time.

It's not over, though. A man describing himself in his complaint as "a
Jewish person" - Harry Abrams, the founder of B'Nai Brith in Victoria -
has launched another action against me with those rights experts over
there who are led by that leather-clad lesbian, Mary Woo Sims, the chief
commissioner. He complains about six columns, including the Hollywood
propaganda column that was dismissed in the first tribunal. Double
jeopardy? What's that? Let's have a rematch, they say. 

Instead of waiting for handouts from Littman and Lethbridge about white
supremacists and other bogeymen, the media should take the trouble to
examine what's going on. Lethbridge and other free speech artists
screamed that this meeting should be stopped. So it was. Only meetings 
of which he approved would be allowed. He's a fascist of the Left. Yet 
the media quote him as if he were an oracle. 

If they did take a look at things, the media would find a firm link
between the politically correct of the militant left and government, who
are often one and the same, as in B.C. They would find that Lethbridge
was a key speaker at, and organizer of, the pro-violence Anti-Racist 
Action Trotskyite mob in Toronto that has been barred from school 
grounds.They would find that Alan Dutton the big anti-racist in B.C. 
was instrumental in getting grants for the ARA from Toronto Metro 
Council. He himself has received hundreds of thousand of dollars in 
grants from government, which finances the anti-freedom movement. . 
They would also find that hotels have been bullied - terrorized might
be a more appropriate term - into not renting premises to groups of 
whom the Lethbridges and the Duttons disapprove.That happened in 
Surrey a couple of years ago when the late Pat Burns of radio fame 
was to have been the keynote speaker and I was to have spoken on Bill 
33, which has become B.C.'s Heresy Act. They would find that no less 
a person than the Attorney General of this province approved of what 
they were doing. They would find that the Duttons and Letbridges
act as advisers to the Attonery General. They would find that the
Alberta Human Rights Commission told a hotel in Edmonton not to give
space to a group that planned to discuss the Canadian Constitution.
They would also find that attempts have been made by the same people
to deny groups space in public libraries. The same Harry Abrams I 
mentioned a minute ago is a leader in that endeavor. He has asked the 
National Library Association to do that, using the trigger word "hate 
groups". But so far the libraries have refused to be panicked. And if
the media are too lazy to seek all that out by themselves, I can help 
them. Yes, that's the kind of stuff you should be doing, Oliver
Chronicle,
Penticton Herald, Globe and Mail, Vancouver Sun, CBC and all the rest of
you. You don't do it, but I can tell you again this: I'm old enough to 
have seen all this happen before.

What's going on is really no different in spirit from what the
Brownshirts got up to in Nazi Germany. In Nazi Germany, it was enough 
to shout Jew, Communist or Socialist. Today in Canada it's enough to 
shout white supremacist, neo-Nazi, and anti-Semite. The ideologies are
different but the spirit is the same. A word or two about the Internet.
The Internet is seen by the Littmans as a threat. How dreadful that 
people can actually send out messages to the world without their having 
to go through the filter of a press dominated by the poltivally correct.
So - kill the Internet, and if the Internet can’t be killed then ruin 
anyone, like Mr. Klatt, who doesn't take orders and won't act as a
censor.
I should point out here that I have seen nothing of what the Littmans
and
Co are bitching about, nor have most of the media who echo what Littman 
says. I had never even heard of the Charlemagne Hammerheads before this 
affair blew up and I have never had lunch with a skinhead, ans what they
are supposed to be saying is certainly not my cup of tea.But I'll tell
you
something. I can be my own censor, thanks very much. I don't need
Littman's 
help.The same option is open to all Internet users. But Littman can't
trust
the public. He wants to treat people like children, while yelling about 
discrimination. To which I say, physician, heal thyself. 

Yes, the idea is to kill the Internet, or at least the controversial
voices on it that Littman doesn't like. And of course there are nasty
voices on it, although I've never bothered to tune in to them. But don't
be fooled by the idea that Littman's censorship would end with stopping
them. Let me give you an example of what I mean. When the Barrett
government got going on its human rights program in the early 1970s we
were told that all they wanted to do was to ensure fair play in hiring
and housing. But these things begin small and end large, and today human
rights commissions in this country are a menace to human rights. Rights
have become wrongs, and in today in B.C. the human rights gang is a
direct threat to freedom of the press. 

It is also said that you can learn how to make bombs on the Internet. So
you can. But you can also learn how to make bombs by other means. The
left-wing Squamish Five didn't need any Internet to learn how to make
and explode bombs in the 1980s, and people intent on making bombs today
don't need the Internet either.

When Winston Churchill lost the British election in 1945, he said,
"Trust the people." I follow that precept and it's my hope that in 
spite of the demonization of dissidents that ‘s going on now, 
Canadians will hold steady. We've been through crazy times before
and survived, and I'm here today in the expectation that we'll survive
this one. 

Meanwhile, Mayor Larson should put on her thinking cap instead of
pandering to the Littmans and giving way to bullies. Then there's
councillor Terry Shafer. He has said that the matter of this meeting is
a tough issue, particularly when the veterans are celebrating the 
creation of Canadian Legion here. They fought, he said so as to allow 
us the privilege of expressing our opinions, NO MATTER HOW AWFUL 
THOSE OPINIONS MAY BE.

What do you know about those opinions, councillor? Have you heard or
read any of them or are you taking the time from Littman and Lethbridge?
And what about your local Liberal MLA, Bill Barisoff? Has he had
anything
critical to say about the NDP's Heresy Law? If he has I must have been
snoozing. But he's reported as telling Litttman he'd be happy to work
with him to ensure that hate literature that violates the Criminal Code
does not appear anywhere in Canada. Does he take Littman's word for what
hate literature is? If you ask me, he's a bit like the Red Queen in
Alice
in Wonderland who said, sentence first, trial later. 

I'll leave you with a couple of other thoughts. A columnist said in
print last year that I give free speech a bad name. I replied by
pointing
out that free speech has always had a bad name. Free speech had a bad
name
when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of Wittingen
cathedral. It had a bad name when John Tyndale was burned at the stake
for translating the Bible into English. It had a bad name when John
Milton
wrote that truth and falsehood should grapple freely. It had a bad name
when the Ayatolla in Iran proclaimed a death sentence on Salman Rushdie,
and when the communists were up before the un-American Activities
Committee. It had a bad name two thousand years ago, when a man called
Jesus was nailed to the cross. One might almost say that free speech has
NEVER had a GOOD name, and thanks to the Littmans and the Lethbridges
and others like them free speech certainly has a bad name today. As I
mentioned earlier, if you are for free speech you are a neo-Nazi, a
crypto-Nazi, a white supremacist, or an anti-Semite. 

This sort of thing is not confined to Canada. It exists right across the
Western world. In Australia, Terry Lane, a well-known print and radio
commentator got into trouble with the local Littmans and wrote a letter
to the Australian Jewish News in 1992 in which he stated the following:

"The Zionist lobby in this country is malicious, implacable, mendacious
and dangerous. What's more, once the expression anti-Semitism hits the
air, or, heaven forfend, the sacred six million is uttered...we are
thrown to the jackals. I surrender. To the Zionists I say, you win. 
To the Palestinians, forgive my cowardice." 

In 1938, the Supreme Court of Canada had this to say when it struck down
the Alberta Press Act:

"Freedom of discussion is essential to enlighten public opinion in a
democratic state. It cannot be curtailed without affecting the right of
people to be informed, independent of government, concerning matters of
public interest. There must be untrammelled publication of news and
opinion." UNTRAMMELLED! It stated further that if the Social Credit law
were allowed to stand, the Socred doctrine would become a kind of
religious dogma that the people would buck at their peril. 

If the Littmans and other critics have their way, their dogmas would
become a kind of religion, too, that we would buck at our peril, and we
are already are buckinjg at our peril. So I say to hell with them, and
you can quote me. How about it, Mayor Larson and others who are running
for cover? How about it, Bill Barisoff? I can tell you where you should
stand. You should be standing right here with the rest of us, not
passing
by on the other side of the street. I will conclude by saying that I am 
77 years of age, that I defended freedom in the 1940s when Hitler was on
the loose, in the 1950s when McCarthy was on the loose, in the 1970s
when
the federal hate laws were passed, in the 1990s when those idiots in 
Victoria passed their misnamed Human Rights Act, and that I shall go on 
defending freedom until the day I die.

Thank you.

This has been done already. Using words like THE Germans or THEY. Now a
Mister Daniel Goldhagen, Jewish professor in New York say’s that all
German have a pathological hatred of Jews and wrote a book about this
"Willing Executioners. You think this book will be banned in Canada for
promoting hatred? What would the reaction be if he wrote ALL JEWS ARE

Germans." In earlier times Christians said: The Jews killed Jesus.

Note quotation marks from willing to Germans? Oviosly it did revere to

A Mister Oerest Slepokura quotet A Mister Doug Collins speech from March
21, 1998.
In there and this are the words:

How would you feel if you were a German born long after Hitler was dead
and you were reminded every day that your grandfather did the wrong
thing? Ask yourselves how you would feel if you were a young German,
being told by Daniel Goldhagen, a Jewish professor in New York, that
Germans have a pathalogigal hatred of Jews?  That’s what he did in his
book "Hitler’s Willing Executioners". But there’s not much fuss about
that.
=============
Now what is this going to tell you? There was a posting.
There was a Mister John Angus inquiring. 
There was McVay to like to have his way
There was the answer where I got this quote from.

McVay is actually lucky that this is not a real live situation and
because of his holocaust industrial sponsors backing he can mouth off as
much as he likes. In al likelihood he is practicing to become a lawyer 
and likes to charge me with spreading false news next.

This has been done already. Using words like THE Germans or THEY. Now a
Mister Daniel Goldhagen, Jewish professor in New York say’s that all
German have a pathological hatred of Jews and wrote a book about this
"Willing Executioners. You think this book will be banned in Canada for
promoting hatred? What would the reaction be if he wrote ALL JEWS ARE
CROOKS? One prominent Jew said; "The world should never stop to hate
Germans." In earlier times Christians said: The Jews killed Jesus.

Note quotation marks from willing to Germans? Oviosly it did revere to

Still holding my nose.



The following is the text of the speech made by the veteran journalist
Doug Collins after the forced cancellation of a free speech conference
in Oliver, British Columbia, slated for March 21, 1998, at Oliver's 
city hall. It is published here as a censorship-busting exercise in free
speech. 

=-=-=-=-=

Doug Collins:

These are extraordinary times in Canada. Dangerous ones, too. The attack
on freedom of speech is massive. It has been going on for many years,
beginning in 1971 when the federal hate laws were passed. I was covering
parliament at the time and saw it happen at first hand. Since then
situation has grown progressively worse. It has now reached the stage
where under the B.C. Human Rights Code a person could be taken before a
human rights tribunal for telling a Newfie joke. It just depends on
whether Ujjal Dosanjh and the provincial government want to go after
him; in other words, whether he is a sanctioned target - sanctioned by
the politically correct and pressure groups like Sol Littman's Simon
Wiesenthal Centre.

It's disappointing that the establishment media are suckers for
propaganda
put out by those groups. All that's needed for them to press the panic
button and produce scare headlines is for the usual trigger words to be
used - neo-Nazi, white supremacist, racist, anti-Semitic. The issues are
rarely debated. So they resort to calling people names. Meanwhile, real
reporting seems to be out of fashion, taking handouts is very much in
fashion. The stories in the Okanagan media have been good examples of
that, as was Thursday's scare story in the Globe & Mail. Call it the
spirit of the times. Forty years ago we saw another spirit of the times.
It was called McCarthyism. Anyone who wanted medicare could be demonized
and seen as a Communist. I lived through those times, too, but many of
today's media weren't around then. So let's forgive them, for they know
not what they do. But it's time some of them grew up.

In the United States none of the anti-free speech laws that decorate the
landscape in Canada would get to first base. They have a Constitution
that protects free expression. We don't. Our Charter of Rights and 
Freedoms is a leaky vessel, which is why teachers and others can be 
fired from their jobs for holding the wrong views. In this country, 
too, an author like David Irving can be arrested while making a dinner
speech about free speech, put into handcuffs, and deported on an 
immigration pretext - while many killers and crooks of all kinds are 
allowed to remain here and while Asian gangs roam Vancouver on drive-by
shootings. That's something else the people of Oliver might think about
when they sign petitions asking the Attorney General in effect to go 
after Mr. Klatt for running an Internet service. But once again, let's
not blame them. They are victims of a massive propaganda campaign. 
That's what I was getting at when I wrote that famous or infamous 
column on Hollywood Propaganda. 

My interest in freedom of speech began a long time ago. When Ernst
Zundel was prosecuted for "spreading false news" in 1985 I appeared 
for the defence. I had never heard of the guy but it was
incomprehensible
to me that a man could be prosecuted for spreading false news. As I told
the court, Santa Claus spreads false news, the weatherman spreads false
news,and any reporter who has ever reported what a politician has had 
to say is probably spreading false news. Today's media are particularly 
good at spreading false news. The Globe & Mail story about this meeting 
that appeared on Thursday was liberally sprinkled with false news, as 
Oliver has good reason to know. In the Zundel case, of course, the 
Supreme Court of Canada agreed with me in the end and the false news law
was nixed.Littman can count himself lucky. 

But the anti-free speech experts were not discouraged. They invented
human rights commissions.The B.C. Human Rights Act, or Code, as it's 
called now,is a disgrace to the province and to the country. The 
Littmans think it's wonderful, of course, but they would, wouldn't 
they!.

I was charged under that Code. The Canadian Jewish Congress laid a
complaint against me after I'd written a column headed "Hollywood
Propaganda" in which I said that the six million holocaust figure was
nonsense, that the Jewish influence in Hollywood was predominant, and
that the move Schindler's List should have been called Swindler's List.
I said that because the man's own wife denounced him as a swindler, 
and she should know. As for who runs Hollywood, only last Sunday a 
two-hour program was shown on network TV called "Hollywoodism," which
confirmed my view in spades. I also stated in the column that I was 
tired of hate literature in the form of films, and that Schindler's 
List had to be the 555th. movie on the same subject. Think about 
that, when the Littmans and the Canadian Jewish Congress fulminate 
about hate literature. How would you feel if you were a German born 
long after Hitler was dead and you were reminded every day that your
grandfather did the wrong thing? Ask yourselves how you would feel if
you were a young German, being told by Daniel Goldhagen, a Jewish 
professor in New York, that Germans have a pathological hatred of Jews?
That's what he did in his book Hitler's Willing Executioners. Isn't 
that hate literature? But there's not much fuss about that. The book 
is freely available in Canada, while books to which the pressure groups
object are not. They are stopped at the border.

Reverse the Goldhagen thing and consider what the reaction would be if
someone wrote a book claiming that all Jews are crooks. What it boils
down to of course is that one man's Hitler is another man's Hemingway.

It's now over half a century since the war ended but from what see on TV
and you get in the media you might think it ended two weeks ago. 
As it happens, I know a lot more about Nazis than most of my critics do.
I was a prisoner of war in Germany until I escaped. I saw Bergen Belsen
concentration camp on the way up through Germany in 1945 after I had
rejoined the forces, and for some years after the war I was a Political
Intelligence Officer working on the de-Nazification of Germany. In
short,I have seen a lot of real Nazis, not just the ersatz types of 
which Sol Littman and that Communist academic David Lethbridge of 
Salmon Arm are so oncerned about.

In Lethbridge's case, at least, he seems to be quite UNconcerned about
the many more millions who died under communism. I might also say that
even if I was wrong, and I wasn't, in a democracy we are supposed to
have
the right to be wrong. Or is that now also out of fashion, with a
Ministry
of Truth headed by Littman and Co.? If so, then Oliver would have to be
the
Hate Capital of Canada and I would have to be an agent for
neo-Nazis,which
is what he called me on television. And speaking of television, it's
one thing to denounce people from a distance and quite another to face
them in debate. I debated free speech for an hour with Littman on CBC
Newsworld and in the viewer poll that was taken 73% voted for me and for
free speech.

As for that rights tribunal I faced, even a carefully selected
adjudicator had to dismiss the case. No hate here, as the North Shore 
News headline put it. And why did she throw out the complaint? Not, in 
my opinion, because she would not have liked to find me guilty, but 
because she knew that if the case had gone to court the complaint would 
have been found to be unconstitutional. Why? Because the B.C. Human
Rights
Code is a Heresy Act, pure and simple. A Heresy Act, which is one reason 
why I am here today, Mr. Attorney General Ujjal Dosanjh. Here are the 
facts: Under that law, truth is no defence; fair comment is not a
defence,
as it is with libel and slander; publication in the public
interest is not a defence, innocent intent is not a defence, and even
work done for scientific purposes is not a defence. 

Let me repeat what the lawyer for the B.C. Press Council said: this is a
law that attempts to stifle speech that is not criminal. That's where
we're at in B.C.

On top of all that the government itself can make its own complaints to
its own Human Rights Commission even when no complaint has been entered
by a third party. So they can get you going and coming even if no-one
else
wants to. Talk about Big Brother and George Orwell's 1984! Fortunately,
we still have courts in this country that can strike down the acts of 
these would-be dictators. In 1938 the Alberta Press Act was struck down,
just as the false news law was later. But the intent of the politicians 
who pass such laws is the same as it is in the dictatorships. 

But while the courts cogitate, speech in Canada is not free at all. It
comes at a price, which is why I no longer sing the national anthem. We
are not the True North Strong and Free. When we revert to being strong
and free I'll start singing again. In my case the defence of a free 
press has cost the North Shore News well over $200,000. Others, like 
Mr.Fromm,have been hounded from their jobs. But there is a bright side
to this. In the case of the North Shore News the public has subscribed 
nearly $150,000 to its defence fund, which shows that you can't fool 
all the people all the time.

It's not over, though. A man describing himself in his complaint as "a
Jewish person" - Harry Abrams, the founder of B'Nai Brith in Victoria -
has launched another action against me with those rights experts over
there who are led by that leather-clad lesbian, Mary Woo Sims, the chief
commissioner. He complains about six columns, including the Hollywood
propaganda column that was dismissed in the first tribunal. Double
jeopardy? What's that? Let's have a rematch, they say. 

Instead of waiting for handouts from Littman and Lethbridge about white
supremacists and other bogeymen, the media should take the trouble to
examine what's going on. Lethbridge and other free speech artists
screamed that this meeting should be stopped. So it was. Only meetings 
of which he approved would be allowed. He's a fascist of the Left. Yet 
the media quote him as if he were an oracle. 

If they did take a look at things, the media would find a firm link
between the politically correct of the militant left and government, who
are often one and the same, as in B.C. They would find that Lethbridge
was a key speaker at, and organizer of, the pro-violence Anti-Racist 
Action Trotskyite mob in Toronto that has been barred from school 
grounds.They would find that Alan Dutton the big anti-racist in B.C. 
was instrumental in getting grants for the ARA from Toronto Metro 
Council. He himself has received hundreds of thousand of dollars in 
grants from government, which finances the anti-freedom movement. . 
They would also find that hotels have been bullied - terrorized might
be a more appropriate term - into not renting premises to groups of 
whom the Lethbridges and the Duttons disapprove.That happened in 
Surrey a couple of years ago when the late Pat Burns of radio fame 
was to have been the keynote speaker and I was to have spoken on Bill 
33, which has become B.C.'s Heresy Act. They would find that no less 
a person than the Attorney General of this province approved of what 
they were doing. They would find that the Duttons and Letbridges
act as advisers to the Attonery General. They would find that the
Alberta Human Rights Commission told a hotel in Edmonton not to give
space to a group that planned to discuss the Canadian Constitution.
They would also find that attempts have been made by the same people
to deny groups space in public libraries. The same Harry Abrams I 
mentioned a minute ago is a leader in that endeavor. He has asked the 
National Library Association to do that, using the trigger word "hate 
groups". But so far the libraries have refused to be panicked. And if
the media are too lazy to seek all that out by themselves, I can help 
them. Yes, that's the kind of stuff you should be doing, Oliver
Chronicle,
Penticton Herald, Globe and Mail, Vancouver Sun, CBC and all the rest of
you. You don't do it, but I can tell you again this: I'm old enough to 
have seen all this happen before.

What's going on is really no different in spirit from what the
Brownshirts got up to in Nazi Germany. In Nazi Germany, it was enough 
to shout Jew, Communist or Socialist. Today in Canada it's enough to 
shout white supremacist, neo-Nazi, and anti-Semite. The ideologies are
different but the spirit is the same. A word or two about the Internet.
The Internet is seen by the Littmans as a threat. How dreadful that 
people can actually send out messages to the world without their having 
to go through the filter of a press dominated by the poltivally correct.
So - kill the Internet, and if the Internet can’t be killed then ruin 
anyone, like Mr. Klatt, who doesn't take orders and won't act as a
censor.
I should point out here that I have seen nothing of what the Littmans
and
Co are bitching about, nor have most of the media who echo what Littman 
says. I had never even heard of the Charlemagne Hammerheads before this 
affair blew up and I have never had lunch with a skinhead, ans what they
are supposed to be saying is certainly not my cup of tea.But I'll tell
you
something. I can be my own censor, thanks very much. I don't need
Littman's 
help.The same option is open to all Internet users. But Littman can't
trust
the public. He wants to treat people like children, while yelling about 
discrimination. To which I say, physician, heal thyself. 

Yes, the idea is to kill the Internet, or at least the controversial
voices on it that Littman doesn't like. And of course there are nasty
voices on it, although I've never bothered to tune in to them. But don't
be fooled by the idea that Littman's censorship would end with stopping
them. Let me give you an example of what I mean. When the Barrett
government got going on its human rights program in the early 1970s we
were told that all they wanted to do was to ensure fair play in hiring
and housing. But these things begin small and end large, and today human
rights commissions in this country are a menace to human rights. Rights
have become wrongs, and in today in B.C. the human rights gang is a
direct threat to freedom of the press. 

It is also said that you can learn how to make bombs on the Internet. So
you can. But you can also learn how to make bombs by other means. The
left-wing Squamish Five didn't need any Internet to learn how to make
and explode bombs in the 1980s, and people intent on making bombs today
don't need the Internet either.

When Winston Churchill lost the British election in 1945, he said,
"Trust the people." I follow that precept and it's my hope that in 
spite of the demonization of dissidents that ‘s going on now, 
Canadians will hold steady. We've been through crazy times before
and survived, and I'm here today in the expectation that we'll survive
this one. 

Meanwhile, Mayor Larson should put on her thinking cap instead of
pandering to the Littmans and giving way to bullies. Then there's
councillor Terry Shafer. He has said that the matter of this meeting is
a tough issue, particularly when the veterans are celebrating the 
creation of Canadian Legion here. They fought, he said so as to allow 
us the privilege of expressing our opinions, NO MATTER HOW AWFUL 
THOSE OPINIONS MAY BE.

What do you know about those opinions, councillor? Have you heard or
read any of them or are you taking the time from Littman and Lethbridge?
And what about your local Liberal MLA, Bill Barisoff? Has he had
anything
critical to say about the NDP's Heresy Law? If he has I must have been
snoozing. But he's reported as telling Litttman he'd be happy to work
with him to ensure that hate literature that violates the Criminal Code
does not appear anywhere in Canada. Does he take Littman's word for what
hate literature is? If you ask me, he's a bit like the Red Queen in
Alice
in Wonderland who said, sentence first, trial later. 

I'll leave you with a couple of other thoughts. A columnist said in
print last year that I give free speech a bad name. I replied by
pointing
out that free speech has always had a bad name. Free speech had a bad
name
when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of Wittingen
cathedral. It had a bad name when John Tyndale was burned at the stake
for translating the Bible into English. It had a bad name when John
Milton
wrote that truth and falsehood should grapple freely. It had a bad name
when the Ayatolla in Iran proclaimed a death sentence on Salman Rushdie,
and when the communists were up before the un-American Activities
Committee. It had a bad name two thousand years ago, when a man called
Jesus was nailed to the cross. One might almost say that free speech has
NEVER had a GOOD name, and thanks to the Littmans and the Lethbridges
and others like them free speech certainly has a bad name today. As I
mentioned earlier, if you are for free speech you are a neo-Nazi, a
crypto-Nazi, a white supremacist, or an anti-Semite. 

This sort of thing is not confined to Canada. It exists right across the
Western world. In Australia, Terry Lane, a well-known print and radio
commentator got into trouble with the local Littmans and wrote a letter
to the Australian Jewish News in 1992 in which he stated the following:

"The Zionist lobby in this country is malicious, implacable, mendacious
and dangerous. What's more, once the expression anti-Semitism hits the
air, or, heaven forfend, the sacred six million is uttered...we are
thrown to the jackals. I surrender. To the Zionists I say, you win. 
To the Palestinians, forgive my cowardice." 

In 1938, the Supreme Court of Canada had this to say when it struck down
the Alberta Press Act:

"Freedom of discussion is essential to enlighten public opinion in a
democratic state. It cannot be curtailed without affecting the right of
people to be informed, independent of government, concerning matters of
public interest. There must be untrammelled publication of news and
opinion." UNTRAMMELLED! It stated further that if the Social Credit law
were allowed to stand, the Socred doctrine would become a kind of
religious dogma that the people would buck at their peril. 

If the Littmans and other critics have their way, their dogmas would
become a kind of religion, too, that we would buck at our peril, and we
are already are buckinjg at our peril. So I say to hell with them, and
you can quote me. How about it, Mayor Larson and others who are running
for cover? How about it, Bill Barisoff? I can tell you where you should
stand. You should be standing right here with the rest of us, not
passing
by on the other side of the street. I will conclude by saying that I am 
77 years of age, that I defended freedom in the 1940s when Hitler was on
the loose, in the 1950s when McCarthy was on the loose, in the 1970s
when
the federal hate laws were passed, in the 1990s when those idiots in 
Victoria passed their misnamed Human Rights Act, and that I shall go on 
defending freedom until the day I die.

Thank you.

The people, you BOY are pulling your foreskin back for them. 

The following is the text of the speech made by the veteran journalist
Doug Collins after the forced cancellation of a free speech conference
in Oliver, British Columbia, slated for March 21, 1998, at Oliver's 
city hall. It is published here as a censorship-busting exercise in free
speech. 

=-=-=-=-=

Doug Collins:

These are extraordinary times in Canada. Dangerous ones, too. The attack
on freedom of speech is massive. It has been going on for many years,
beginning in 1971 when the federal hate laws were passed. I was covering
parliament at the time and saw it happen at first hand. Since then
situation has grown progressively worse. It has now reached the stage
where under the B.C. Human Rights Code a person could be taken before a
human rights tribunal for telling a Newfie joke. It just depends on
whether Ujjal Dosanjh and the provincial government want to go after
him; in other words, whether he is a sanctioned target - sanctioned by
the politically correct and pressure groups like Sol Littman's Simon
Wiesenthal Centre.

It's disappointing that the establishment media are suckers for
propaganda
put out by those groups. All that's needed for them to press the panic
button and produce scare headlines is for the usual trigger words to be
used - neo-Nazi, white supremacist, racist, anti-Semitic. The issues are
rarely debated. So they resort to calling people names. Meanwhile, real
reporting seems to be out of fashion, taking handouts is very much in
fashion. The stories in the Okanagan media have been good examples of
that, as was Thursday's scare story in the Globe & Mail. Call it the
spirit of the times. Forty years ago we saw another spirit of the times.
It was called McCarthyism. Anyone who wanted medicare could be demonized
and seen as a Communist. I lived through those times, too, but many of
today's media weren't around then. So let's forgive them, for they know
not what they do. But it's time some of them grew up.

In the United States none of the anti-free speech laws that decorate the
landscape in Canada would get to first base. They have a Constitution
that protects free expression. We don't. Our Charter of Rights and 
Freedoms is a leaky vessel, which is why teachers and others can be 
fired from their jobs for holding the wrong views. In this country, 
too, an author like David Irving can be arrested while making a dinner
speech about free speech, put into handcuffs, and deported on an 
immigration pretext - while many killers and crooks of all kinds are 
allowed to remain here and while Asian gangs roam Vancouver on drive-by
shootings. That's something else the people of Oliver might think about
when they sign petitions asking the Attorney General in effect to go 
after Mr. Klatt for running an Internet service. But once again, let's
not blame them. They are victims of a massive propaganda campaign. 
That's what I was getting at when I wrote that famous or infamous 
column on Hollywood Propaganda. 

My interest in freedom of speech began a long time ago. When Ernst
Zundel was prosecuted for "spreading false news" in 1985 I appeared 
for the defence. I had never heard of the guy but it was
incomprehensible
to me that a man could be prosecuted for spreading false news. As I told
the court, Santa Claus spreads false news, the weatherman spreads false
news,and any reporter who has ever reported what a politician has had 
to say is probably spreading false news. Today's media are particularly 
good at spreading false news. The Globe & Mail story about this meeting 
that appeared on Thursday was liberally sprinkled with false news, as 
Oliver has good reason to know. In the Zundel case, of course, the 
Supreme Court of Canada agreed with me in the end and the false news law
was nixed.Littman can count himself lucky. 

But the anti-free speech experts were not discouraged. They invented
human rights commissions.The B.C. Human Rights Act, or Code, as it's 
called now,is a disgrace to the province and to the country. The 
Littmans think it's wonderful, of course, but they would, wouldn't 
they!.

I was charged under that Code. The Canadian Jewish Congress laid a
complaint against me after I'd written a column headed "Hollywood
Propaganda" in which I said that the six million holocaust figure was
nonsense, that the Jewish influence in Hollywood was predominant, and
that the move Schindler's List should have been called Swindler's List.
I said that because the man's own wife denounced him as a swindler, 
and she should know. As for who runs Hollywood, only last Sunday a 
two-hour program was shown on network TV called "Hollywoodism," which
confirmed my view in spades. I also stated in the column that I was 
tired of hate literature in the form of films, and that Schindler's 
List had to be the 555th. movie on the same subject. Think about 
that, when the Littmans and the Canadian Jewish Congress fulminate 
about hate literature. How would you feel if you were a German born 
long after Hitler was dead and you were reminded every day that your
grandfather did the wrong thing? Ask yourselves how you would feel if
you were a young German, being told by Daniel Goldhagen, a Jewish 
professor in New York, that Germans have a pathological hatred of Jews?
That's what he did in his book Hitler's Willing Executioners. Isn't 
that hate literature? But there's not much fuss about that. The book 
is freely available in Canada, while books to which the pressure groups
object are not. They are stopped at the border.

Reverse the Goldhagen thing and consider what the reaction would be if
someone wrote a book claiming that all Jews are crooks. What it boils
down to of course is that one man's Hitler is another man's Hemingway.

It's now over half a century since the war ended but from what see on TV
and you get in the media you might think it ended two weeks ago. 
As it happens, I know a lot more about Nazis than most of my critics do.
I was a prisoner of war in Germany until I escaped. I saw Bergen Belsen
concentration camp on the way up through Germany in 1945 after I had
rejoined the forces, and for some years after the war I was a Political
Intelligence Officer working on the de-Nazification of Germany. In
short,I have seen a lot of real Nazis, not just the ersatz types of 
which Sol Littman and that Communist academic David Lethbridge of 
Salmon Arm are so oncerned about.

In Lethbridge's case, at least, he seems to be quite UNconcerned about
the many more millions who died under communism. I might also say that
even if I was wrong, and I wasn't, in a democracy we are supposed to
have
the right to be wrong. Or is that now also out of fashion, with a
Ministry
of Truth headed by Littman and Co.? If so, then Oliver would have to be
the
Hate Capital of Canada and I would have to be an agent for
neo-Nazis,which
is what he called me on television. And speaking of television, it's
one thing to denounce people from a distance and quite another to face
them in debate. I debated free speech for an hour with Littman on CBC
Newsworld and in the viewer poll that was taken 73% voted for me and for
free speech.

As for that rights tribunal I faced, even a carefully selected
adjudicator had to dismiss the case. No hate here, as the North Shore 
News headline put it. And why did she throw out the complaint? Not, in 
my opinion, because she would not have liked to find me guilty, but 
because she knew that if the case had gone to court the complaint would 
have been found to be unconstitutional. Why? Because the B.C. Human
Rights
Code is a Heresy Act, pure and simple. A Heresy Act, which is one reason 
why I am here today, Mr. Attorney General Ujjal Dosanjh. Here are the 
facts: Under that law, truth is no defence; fair comment is not a
defence,
as it is with libel and slander; publication in the public
interest is not a defence, innocent intent is not a defence, and even
work done for scientific purposes is not a defence. 

Let me repeat what the lawyer for the B.C. Press Council said: this is a
law that attempts to stifle speech that is not criminal. That's where
we're at in B.C.

On top of all that the government itself can make its own complaints to
its own Human Rights Commission even when no complaint has been entered
by a third party. So they can get you going and coming even if no-one
else
wants to. Talk about Big Brother and George Orwell's 1984! Fortunately,
we still have courts in this country that can strike down the acts of 
these would-be dictators. In 1938 the Alberta Press Act was struck down,
just as the false news law was later. But the intent of the politicians 
who pass such laws is the same as it is in the dictatorships. 

But while the courts cogitate, speech in Canada is not free at all. It
comes at a price, which is why I no longer sing the national anthem. We
are not the True North Strong and Free. When we revert to being strong
and free I'll start singing again. In my case the defence of a free 
press has cost the North Shore News well over $200,000. Others, like 
Mr.Fromm,have been hounded from their jobs. But there is a bright side
to this. In the case of the North Shore News the public has subscribed 
nearly $150,000 to its defence fund, which shows that you can't fool 
all the people all the time.

It's not over, though. A man describing himself in his complaint as "a
Jewish person" - Harry Abrams, the founder of B'Nai Brith in Victoria -
has launched another action against me with those rights experts over
there who are led by that leather-clad lesbian, Mary Woo Sims, the chief
commissioner. He complains about six columns, including the Hollywood
propaganda column that was dismissed in the first tribunal. Double
jeopardy? What's that? Let's have a rematch, they say. 

Instead of waiting for handouts from Littman and Lethbridge about white
supremacists and other bogeymen, the media should take the trouble to
examine what's going on. Lethbridge and other free speech artists
screamed that this meeting should be stopped. So it was. Only meetings 
of which he approved would be allowed. He's a fascist of the Left. Yet 
the media quote him as if he were an oracle. 

If they did take a look at things, the media would find a firm link
between the politically correct of the militant left and government, who
are often one and the same, as in B.C. They would find that Lethbridge
was a key speaker at, and organizer of, the pro-violence Anti-Racist 
Action Trotskyite mob in Toronto that has been barred from school 
grounds.They would find that Alan Dutton the big anti-racist in B.C. 
was instrumental in getting grants for the ARA from Toronto Metro 
Council. He himself has received hundreds of thousand of dollars in 
grants from government, which finances the anti-freedom movement. . 
They would also find that hotels have been bullied - terrorized might
be a more appropriate term - into not renting premises to groups of 
whom the Lethbridges and the Duttons disapprove.That happened in 
Surrey a couple of years ago when the late Pat Burns of radio fame 
was to have been the keynote speaker and I was to have spoken on Bill 
33, which has become B.C.'s Heresy Act. They would find that no less 
a person than the Attorney General of this province approved of what 
they were doing. They would find that the Duttons and Letbridges
act as advisers to the Attonery General. They would find that the
Alberta Human Rights Commission told a hotel in Edmonton not to give
space to a group that planned to discuss the Canadian Constitution.
They would also find that attempts have been made by the same people
to deny groups space in public libraries. The same Harry Abrams I 
mentioned a minute ago is a leader in that endeavor. He has asked the 
National Library Association to do that, using the trigger word "hate 
groups". But so far the libraries have refused to be panicked. And if
the media are too lazy to seek all that out by themselves, I can help 
them. Yes, that's the kind of stuff you should be doing, Oliver
Chronicle,
Penticton Herald, Globe and Mail, Vancouver Sun, CBC and all the rest of
you. You don't do it, but I can tell you again this: I'm old enough to 
have seen all this happen before.

What's going on is really no different in spirit from what the
Brownshirts got up to in Nazi Germany. In Nazi Germany, it was enough 
to shout Jew, Communist or Socialist. Today in Canada it's enough to 
shout white supremacist, neo-Nazi, and anti-Semite. The ideologies are
different but the spirit is the same. A word or two about the Internet.
The Internet is seen by the Littmans as a threat. How dreadful that 
people can actually send out messages to the world without their having 
to go through the filter of a press dominated by the poltivally correct.
So - kill the Internet, and if the Internet can’t be killed then ruin 
anyone, like Mr. Klatt, who doesn't take orders and won't act as a
censor.
I should point out here that I have seen nothing of what the Littmans
and
Co are bitching about, nor have most of the media who echo what Littman 
says. I had never even heard of the Charlemagne Hammerheads before this 
affair blew up and I have never had lunch with a skinhead, ans what they
are supposed to be saying is certainly not my cup of tea.But I'll tell
you
something. I can be my own censor, thanks very much. I don't need
Littman's 
help.The same option is open to all Internet users. But Littman can't
trust
the public. He wants to treat people like children, while yelling about 
discrimination. To which I say, physician, heal thyself. 

Yes, the idea is to kill the Internet, or at least the controversial
voices on it that Littman doesn't like. And of course there are nasty
voices on it, although I've never bothered to tune in to them. But don't
be fooled by the idea that Littman's censorship would end with stopping
them. Let me give you an example of what I mean. When the Barrett
government got going on its human rights program in the early 1970s we
were told that all they wanted to do was to ensure fair play in hiring
and housing. But these things begin small and end large, and today human
rights commissions in this country are a menace to human rights. Rights
have become wrongs, and in today in B.C. the human rights gang is a
direct threat to freedom of the press. 

It is also said that you can learn how to make bombs on the Internet. So
you can. But you can also learn how to make bombs by other means. The
left-wing Squamish Five didn't need any Internet to learn how to make
and explode bombs in the 1980s, and people intent on making bombs today
don't need the Internet either.

When Winston Churchill lost the British election in 1945, he said,
"Trust the people." I follow that precept and it's my hope that in 
spite of the demonization of dissidents that ‘s going on now, 
Canadians will hold steady. We've been through crazy times before
and survived, and I'm here today in the expectation that we'll survive
this one. 

Meanwhile, Mayor Larson should put on her thinking cap instead of
pandering to the Littmans and giving way to bullies. Then there's
councillor Terry Shafer. He has said that the matter of this meeting is
a tough issue, particularly when the veterans are celebrating the 
creation of Canadian Legion here. They fought, he said so as to allow 
us the privilege of expressing our opinions, NO MATTER HOW AWFUL 
THOSE OPINIONS MAY BE.

What do you know about those opinions, councillor? Have you heard or
read any of them or are you taking the time from Littman and Lethbridge?
And what about your local Liberal MLA, Bill Barisoff? Has he had
anything
critical to say about the NDP's Heresy Law? If he has I must have been
snoozing. But he's reported as telling Litttman he'd be happy to work
with him to ensure that hate literature that violates the Criminal Code
does not appear anywhere in Canada. Does he take Littman's word for what
hate literature is? If you ask me, he's a bit like the Red Queen in
Alice
in Wonderland who said, sentence first, trial later. 

I'll leave you with a couple of other thoughts. A columnist said in
print last year that I give free speech a bad name. I replied by
pointing
out that free speech has always had a bad name. Free speech had a bad
name
when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of Wittingen
cathedral. It had a bad name when John Tyndale was burned at the stake
for translating the Bible into English. It had a bad name when John
Milton
wrote that truth and falsehood should grapple freely. It had a bad name
when the Ayatolla in Iran proclaimed a death sentence on Salman Rushdie,
and when the communists were up before the un-American Activities
Committee. It had a bad name two thousand years ago, when a man called
Jesus was nailed to the cross. One might almost say that free speech has
NEVER had a GOOD name, and thanks to the Littmans and the Lethbridges
and others like them free speech certainly has a bad name today. As I
mentioned earlier, if you are for free speech you are a neo-Nazi, a
crypto-Nazi, a white supremacist, or an anti-Semite. 

This sort of thing is not confined to Canada. It exists right across the
Western world. In Australia, Terry Lane, a well-known print and radio
commentator got into trouble with the local Littmans and wrote a letter
to the Australian Jewish News in 1992 in which he stated the following:

"The Zionist lobby in this country is malicious, implacable, mendacious
and dangerous. What's more, once the expression anti-Semitism hits the
air, or, heaven forfend, the sacred six million is uttered...we are
thrown to the jackals. I surrender. To the Zionists I say, you win. 
To the Palestinians, forgive my cowardice." 

In 1938, the Supreme Court of Canada had this to say when it struck down
the Alberta Press Act:

"Freedom of discussion is essential to enlighten public opinion in a
democratic state. It cannot be curtailed without affecting the right of
people to be informed, independent of government, concerning matters of
public interest. There must be untrammelled publication of news and
opinion." UNTRAMMELLED! It stated further that if the Social Credit law
were allowed to stand, the Socred doctrine would become a kind of
religious dogma that the people would buck at their peril. 

If the Littmans and other critics have their way, their dogmas would
become a kind of religion, too, that we would buck at our peril, and we
are already are buckinjg at our peril. So I say to hell with them, and
you can quote me. How about it, Mayor Larson and others who are running
for cover? How about it, Bill Barisoff? I can tell you where you should
stand. You should be standing right here with the rest of us, not
passing
by on the other side of the street. I will conclude by saying that I am 
77 years of age, that I defended freedom in the 1940s when Hitler was on
the loose, in the 1950s when McCarthy was on the loose, in the 1970s
when
the federal hate laws were passed, in the 1990s when those idiots in 
Victoria passed their misnamed Human Rights Act, and that I shall go on 
defending freedom until the day I die.

Thank you.

Now you are telling me what your real name is. Mister Ken Claptrap. 
The mouth in motion man of the year. 


The following is the text of the speech made by the veteran journalist
Doug Collins after the forced cancellation of a free speech conference
in Oliver, British Columbia, slated for March 21, 1998, at Oliver's 
city hall. It is published here as a censorship-busting exercise in free

Doug Collins:

These are extraordinary times in Canada. Dangerous ones, too. The attack

beginning in 1971 when the federal hate laws were passed. I was covering

It's now over half a century since the war ended but from what see on TV
and you get in the media you might think it ended two weeks ago. 
As it happens, I know a lot more about Nazis than most of my critics do.
I was a prisoner of war in Germany until I escaped. I saw Bergen Belsen
concentration camp on the way up through Germany in 1945 after I had
rejoined the forces, and for some years after the war I was a Political
Intelligence Officer working on the de-Nazification of Germany. In
short,I have seen a lot of real Nazis, not just the ersatz types of 
which Sol Littman and that Communist academic David Lethbridge of 
Salmon Arm are so oncerned about.

In Lethbridge's case, at least, he seems to be quite UNconcerned about
the many more millions who died under communism. I might also say that
even if I was wrong, and I wasn't, in a democracy we are supposed to
have
the right to be wrong. Or is that now also out of fashion, with a
Ministry
of Truth headed by Littman and Co.? If so, then Oliver would have to be
the
Hate Capital of Canada and I would have to be an agent for
neo-Nazis,which
is what he called me on television. And speaking of television, it's
one thing to denounce people from a distance and quite another to face
them in debate. I debated free speech for an hour with Littman on CBC
Newsworld and in the viewer poll that was taken 73% voted for me and for
free speech.

As for that rights tribunal I faced, even a carefully selected
adjudicator had to dismiss the case. No hate here, as the North Shore 
News headline put it. And why did she throw out the complaint? Not, in 
my opinion, because she would not have liked to find me guilty, but 
because she knew that if the case had gone to court the complaint would 
have been found to be unconstitutional. Why? Because the B.C. Human
Rights
Code is a Heresy Act, pure and simple. A Heresy Act, which is one reason 
why I am here today, Mr. Attorney General Ujjal Dosanjh. Here are the 
facts: Under that law, truth is no defence; fair comment is not a
defence,
as it is with libel and slander; publication in the public
interest is not a defence, innocent intent is not a defence, and even
work done for scientific purposes is not a defence. 

Let me repeat what the lawyer for the B.C. Press Council said: this is a
law that attempts to stifle speech that is not criminal. That's where
we're at in B.C.

On top of all that the government itself can make its own complaints to
its own Human Rights Commission even when no complaint has been entered
by a third party. So they can get you going and coming even if no-one
else
wants to. Talk about Big Brother and George Orwell's 1984! Fortunately,
we still have courts in this country that can strike down the acts of 
these would-be dictators. In 1938 the Alberta Press Act was struck down,
just as the false news law was later. But the intent of the politicians 
who pass such laws is the same as it is in the dictatorships. 

But while the courts cogitate, speech in Canada is not free at all. It
comes at a price, which is why I no longer sing the national anthem. We
are not the True North Strong and Free. When we revert to being strong
and free I'll start singing again. In my case the defence of a free 
press has cost the North Shore News well over $200,000. Others, like 
Mr.Fromm,have been hounded from their jobs. But there is a bright side
to this. In the case of the North Shore News the public has subscribed 
nearly $150,000 to its defence fund, which shows that you can't fool 
all the people all the time.

It's not over, though. A man describing himself in his complaint as "a
Jewish person" - Harry Abrams, the founder of B'Nai Brith in Victoria -
has launched another action against me with those rights experts over
there who are led by that leather-clad lesbian, Mary Woo Sims, the chief
commissioner. He complains about six columns, including the Hollywood
propaganda column that was dismissed in the first tribunal. Double
jeopardy? What's that? Let's have a rematch, they say. 

Instead of waiting for handouts from Littman and Lethbridge about white
supremacists and other bogeymen, the media should take the trouble to
examine what's going on. Lethbridge and other free speech artists
screamed that this meeting should be stopped. So it was. Only meetings 
of which he approved would be allowed. He's a fascist of the Left. Yet 
the media quote him as if he were an oracle. 

If they did take a look at things, the media would find a firm link
between the politically correct of the militant left and government, who
are often one and the same, as in B.C. They would find that Lethbridge
was a key speaker at, and organizer of, the pro-violence Anti-Racist 
Action Trotskyite mob in Toronto that has been barred from school 
grounds.They would find that Alan Dutton the big anti-racist in B.C. 
was instrumental in getting grants for the ARA from Toronto Metro 
Council. He himself has received hundreds of thousand of dollars in 
grants from government, which finances the anti-freedom movement. . 
They would also find that hotels have been bullied - terrorized might
be a more appropriate term - into not renting premises to groups of 
whom the Lethbridges and the Duttons disapprove.That happened in 
Surrey a couple of years ago when the late Pat Burns of radio fame 
was to have been the keynote speaker and I was to have spoken on Bill 
33, which has become B.C.'s Heresy Act. They would find that no less 
a person than the Attorney General of this province approved of what 
they were doing. They would find that the Duttons and Letbridges
act as advisers to the Attonery General. They would find that the
Alberta Human Rights Commission told a hotel in Edmonton not to give
space to a group that planned to discuss the Canadian Constitution.
They would also find that attempts have been made by the same people
to deny groups space in public libraries. The same Harry Abrams I 
mentioned a minute ago is a leader in that endeavor. He has asked the 
National Library Association to do that, using the trigger word "hate 
groups". But so far the libraries have refused to be panicked. And if
the media are too lazy to seek all that out by themselves, I can help 
them. Yes, that's the kind of stuff you should be doing, Oliver
Chronicle,
Penticton Herald, Globe and Mail, Vancouver Sun, CBC and all the rest of
you. You don't do it, but I can tell you again this: I'm old enough to 
have seen all this happen before.

What's going on is really no different in spirit from what the
Brownshirts got up to in Nazi Germany. In Nazi Germany, it was enough 
to shout Jew, Communist or Socialist. Today in Canada it's enough to 
shout white supremacist, neo-Nazi, and anti-Semite. The ideologies are
different but the spirit is the same. A word or two about the Internet.
The Internet is seen by the Littmans as a threat. How dreadful that 
people can actually send out messages to the world without their having 
to go through the filter of a press dominated by the poltivally correct.
So - kill the Internet, and if the Internet can’t be killed then ruin 
anyone, like Mr. Klatt, who doesn't take orders and won't act as a
censor.
I should point out here that I have seen nothing of what the Littmans
and
Co are bitching about, nor have most of the media who echo what Littman 
says. I had never even heard of the Charlemagne Hammerheads before this 
affair blew up and I have never had lunch with a skinhead, ans what they
are supposed to be saying is certainly not my cup of tea.But I'll tell
you
something. I can be my own censor, thanks very much. I don't need
Littman's 
help.The same option is open to all Internet users. But Littman can't
trust
the public. He wants to treat people like children, while yelling about 
discrimination. To which I say, physician, heal thyself. 

Yes, the idea is to kill the Internet, or at least the controversial
voices on it that Littman doesn't like. And of course there are nasty
voices on it, although I've never bothered to tune in to them. But don't
be fooled by the idea that Littman's censorship would end with stopping
them. Let me give you an example of what I mean. When the Barrett
government got going on its human rights program in the early 1970s we
were told that all they wanted to do was to ensure fair play in hiring
and housing. But these things begin small and end large, and today human
rights commissions in this country are a menace to human rights. Rights
have become wrongs, and in today in B.C. the human rights gang is a
direct threat to freedom of the press. 

It is also said that you can learn how to make bombs on the Internet. So
you can. But you can also learn how to make bombs by other means. The
left-wing Squamish Five didn't need any Internet to learn how to make
and explode bombs in the 1980s, and people intent on making bombs today
don't need the Internet either.

When Winston Churchill lost the British election in 1945, he said,
"Trust the people." I follow that precept and it's my hope that in 
spite of the demonization of dissidents that ‘s going on now, 
Canadians will hold steady. We've been through crazy times before
and survived, and I'm here today in the expectation that we'll survive
this one. 

Meanwhile, Mayor Larson should put on her thinking cap instead of
pandering to the Littmans and giving way to bullies. Then there's
councillor Terry Shafer. He has said that the matter of this meeting is
a tough issue, particularly when the veterans are celebrating the 
creation of Canadian Legion here. They fought, he said so as to allow 
us the privilege of expressing our opinions, NO MATTER HOW AWFUL 
THOSE OPINIONS MAY BE.

What do you know about those opinions, councillor? Have you heard or
read any of them or are you taking the time from Littman and Lethbridge?
And what about your local Liberal MLA, Bill Barisoff? Has he had
anything
critical to say about the NDP's Heresy Law? If he has I must have been
snoozing. But he's reported as telling Litttman he'd be happy to work
with him to ensure that hate literature that violates the Criminal Code
does not appear anywhere in Canada. Does he take Littman's word for what
hate literature is? If you ask me, he's a bit like the Red Queen in
Alice
in Wonderland who said, sentence first, trial later. 

I'll leave you with a couple of other thoughts. A columnist said in
print last year that I give free speech a bad name. I replied by
pointing
out that free speech has always had a bad name. Free speech had a bad
name
when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of Wittingen
cathedral. It had a bad name when John Tyndale was burned at the stake
for translating the Bible into English. It had a bad name when John
Milton
wrote that truth and falsehood should grapple freely. It had a bad name
when the Ayatolla in Iran proclaimed a death sentence on Salman Rushdie,
and when the communists were up before the un-American Activities
Committee. It had a bad name two thousand years ago, when a man called
Jesus was nailed to the cross. One might almost say that free speech has
NEVER had a GOOD name, and thanks to the Littmans and the Lethbridges
and others like them free speech certainly has a bad name today. As I
mentioned earlier, if you are for free speech you are a neo-Nazi, a
crypto-Nazi, a white supremacist, or an anti-Semite. 

This sort of thing is not confined to Canada. It exists right across the
Western world. In Australia, Terry Lane, a well-known print and radio
commentator got into trouble with the local Littmans and wrote a letter
to the Australian Jewish News in 1992 in which he stated the following:

"The Zionist lobby in this country is malicious, implacable, mendacious
and dangerous. What's more, once the expression anti-Semitism hits the
air, or, heaven forfend, the sacred six million is uttered...we are
thrown to the jackals. I surrender. To the Zionists I say, you win. 
To the Palestinians, forgive my cowardice." 

In 1938, the Supreme Court of Canada had this to say when it struck down
the Alberta Press Act:

"Freedom of discussion is essential to enlighten public opinion in a
democratic state. It cannot be curtailed without affecting the right of
people to be informed, independent of government, concerning matters of
public interest. There must be untrammelled publication of news and
opinion." UNTRAMMELLED! It stated further that if the Social Credit law
were allowed to stand, the Socred doctrine would become a kind of
religious dogma that the people would buck at their peril. 

If the Littmans and other critics have their way, their dogmas would
become a kind of religion, too, that we would buck at our peril, and we
are already are buckinjg at our peril. So I say to hell with them, and
you can quote me. How about it, Mayor Larson and others who are running
for cover? How about it, Bill Barisoff? I can tell you where you should
stand. You should be standing right here with the rest of us, not
passing
by on the other side of the street. I will conclude by saying that I am 
77 years of age, that I defended freedom in the 1940s when Hitler was on
the loose, in the 1950s when McCarthy was on the loose, in the 1970s
when
the federal hate laws were passed, in the 1990s when those idiots in 
Victoria passed their misnamed Human Rights Act, and that I shall go on 
defending freedom until the day I die.

Thank you.

What I am saying here that he is denied to distribute his propaganda
through the media and asking for fairness to censor you people too.
With other words if he were able to publish and would ask the courts to
stop you, than he would be a hypocrite. He is asking for a level playing
field.

Perhaps you guy’s has a new meaning now. What do you expect me to say.
You are an innocent bystander who hears nothing sees nothing and knows
nothing. Fact is that you are the foreskin for a big organization. So

Live with it. You are part of the problem, not the solution by saying,
oh I got not with this to do. Read up in a book what this words
blackmail and extortion means and read the news what happen lately. Does
the name  Rabbi Marvin Hier of the Los Angeles Wiesenthal Center mean
anything to you? He is after Swizerland and 9 other countries.

Switzerland, already bending backward with memorial fund and such, Hier
stated is still not enough. What does not enough mean to you???? You are
all for it to protect the memory if the holocaust victims from being
belittled and are trying to tell me that this propaganda war you people
are having has  no impact on Germany or the German people?? On this one
I am lying again if it suit’

Are you trying to tell me that your work has no impact whatsoever? What
the hell are you than good for

People who were nobodies in concentration camps were put on trial after
the second word war. This people had a lesser roll to play that you in
this propaganda war. By the way that is a fact and not another lie.

Interesting. Did you ever go back to carbs after that? If so did it
change things back?

Do you thing that this people voted with their stomach? I do

You see there is a chance that management is celebrating this as a
victory. When this victory celebration is over and sober thought’s come
in, chances are that some of this management people are starting to feel
all rotten inside.

Yes the will say the won but in return they lost their dignity. Ops
forgot. Chances are they never had any dignity in the first place to
speak off.

What does the word seems rather strange mean to you? It is obvious that
I do not approve of any kind of censorship.

How can you contemn this man for asking a funny question? It would be
different if he is able to say what he wants but likes to censor
everybody else like you people do.

Perhaps he was denied the opportunity to represent his side on the
Internet. As a result of this, he may have said OK censor the others
too???

Vancouver Province Sunday March 29, 1998
Trio charged in connection with razor blades in mail.
Darren Nathan Barbarash age 28 and Rebecca Rubin age 23 are charged with
possession of explosive.

Police began a probe in 1995 after Toronto Holocaust denier Ernst Zundel
received a mouse trap rigged with razor blades in the mail.

Could it be that the purpose of your organization is to incite hatred
against people like Zundel

BTW. Why don’t you have a link to Zundels web side when you are so
interested about what Zundel is doing? Oh I got it; it is against the
law for him to spread his gospel?

I am in no position to say if Goldhagen is lying or not. What burn’s  my
ass is people on the left or on the right are saying that only the
author who writes what the like to hear is telling the truth.

I have a printout from
soc.culture,de.soc.politik,de.soc.politik.deutschland which addresses
this issue.

Well perhaps the both are lying. But than again you ask me to take your
word and you could be lying too. Well I do not have the habit to accuse
people of lying because they the have a different opinion. Obviously it
is people like you who are interested to bring him down. It should be

Does this now mean that news papers, radio, TV cannot be trusted? You
and cannot quote anything what is going on around us because it could
not be true? Amazing. 

Newspaper clipping in the Vancouver Province tells me that Collins won
his rights skirmish. It also says that his column was nasty but didn’t
violate the code.

It also say’s that the Canadian Jewish Congress filed a case and desist
order. Fact is that you people were trying to censor him because he was
talking about your holocaust industry.

It is the way it is done What you people are doing here is constantly
crying to get things your way. I f you were a child in a family who need

That is true. Take a look how some people are trying to fault immigrants
and racial minorities for everything what is wrong today. Looks like
Germany in the past were the Jews were the easy targed.

It was this statement below I made when you accused me of lying. What I
am saying that you people are accusing others of lying and pointed out
that the Nazis were using the same words about the Jews.

 Surely, you do work for an organization and can hardly claim to be

Was Sol Littman and B’Nai Brith instrumental for shutting down the
Oliver service supplier? Was  this action taken to censor him?

Fact is that he mentioned Goldhagen and his book. It make no difference
wherever he was using a quote to prove his point. In all likelihood he
used his own interpretation to get a point across.

McVay is saying that he cannot find any reverence about the statement
Doug Collins made about Goldhagen and therefore it must be a lie. He
could be right when he says that he cannot find it in his book.
I gave an example in mentioning the book "Other Losses" and how many
revisions have been made to it.

I am sure that you and I do not support any group or person who are out
to make somebody’s live difficult because the have a different religion,
culture or color.

For me because I belong to a different culture group and experienced
hate against myselfe on account of this, It is very important to stamp
out hatred in any form.

If Abe would have met Jimmy, he probably would have thought that he was
a nice guy. Jimmy would be the one in sheep’s clothing.

No wonder we have Wolves in sheep clothing sitting in government. Just
look at this news group and how many people are sitting on their
computers at home and are afraid to contribute anything.

This are the same people who complain after any elections that their
voice is not heard. If you like to see changes to government do not wait
till after the election.

That statement shows that you are not able to put your facts together or
by design ignore some of the statements I made. Let me repeat.

You informed my that you could find nowhere in Goldhagens book any
reverence to Collins statement. In return I gave a explanation that your
statement can be true because books are under constant revision. As an
example I gave a explanation what can happen by using Other losses as an
example Here is my quote again.

McVay could be telling the truth when he says that he cannot find this
quote in his book. Let me explain to you.
I have a Paperback Book in my possession. I am talking about the book "
Other Losses" I had this book first from the library. This book was
reprinted in October 1989, February 1990 and May 1991. ISBN:
0-7736-7309-1
There are many changes from the original I read in the library. As a
matter of fact the one I do have now is a revised edition. I am sure you
know what revised means.

This statement says it all. I am sure other people here reading your
posting will see what you are up too!

Perhaps you quote a lie every day and expect people to believe you?
Nowhere I said that everybody hates my Perhaps you feel that everybody
hates you? Why should I go and  verify information like this? Open your
eyes and have a look. This is a news group where people discuss the pro
and cons of any subject: You expect people to go to your web side  for
the same reason like many others to listen to your point of view. You
can convert some but not all.

It is your tactics to achieve your goal that are highly suspect.

You must be a real clown when you thing for one moment to get away with
your nonsense. You are trying to convince people that I am publishing
false news on purpose. In this your way to twist thing around.

I hope you go ahead with your style so people can really see what you
are. I am looking forward to your next response so you have a chance to
expose yourself and your supporters so people can see what tactics you
are using to suppress people with a different view.

Remember what John F Kennedy said about some Germans. "Berliners are
like eggs. When you boil them, they get  hard. If you boil them longer,
the get harder."

Go back to your bosses for more instructions before you make your next
move. I am waiting. I do know how to handle riffraff like you any day

Grow up for once in your live and be honest with yourself  A record in

Well perhaps the both are lying. But than again you ask me to take your
word and you could be lying too. Well I do not have the habit to accuse
people of lying because they the have a different opinion. Obviously it
is people like you who are interested to bring him down. It should be
your task to find out!

This has been done already. Using words like THE Germans or THEY. Now a
Mister Daniel Goldhagen, Jewish professor in New York say’s that all
German have a pathological hatred of Jews and wrote a book about this
"Willing Executioners. You think this book will be banned in Canada for
promoting hatred? What would the reaction be if he wrote ALL JEWS ARE
CROOKS? One prominent Jew said; "The world should never stop to hate
Germans." In earlier times Christians said: The Jews killed Jesus.

Really? You like to bring Collins down? Let me tell you boy Mister
Collins gets more credibility by the minute when you are writing like
this.

You people?
It is obvious to me that you could not run a fruit stand of your own. So
why don’t you go and tell me and others who is your sponsor, so you can
answer yourself what YOU PEOPLE means!!

Is this the way, and again I am saying you people operate to silence
people. Who are this people in your organization with so much power?

You know? You are giving Jewish people  bad name. The Jewish people I
met were smart decent people. You do not have this qualification.

I am glad you see it that way. Ken is doing a disservice to all good
Jewish people. Over the years I had contact with many Jews. I found that
this people were very well educated and had compassion for me.

Why? Because they were the victims of hatred not because the were doing
some wrong but because of the hate propaganda by the Nazis. Knowing
that, they could easily understand my feelings.

I guess you will understand that we all have feelings and we should not
try to suppress this feelings. I can understand that people who have
been wronged shall have the right and responsibility to let the whole
world know about it. What I am against is that people are using this as
a weapon.

In regard to Goldhagens book and Collins statement? I have no way of
knowing if Collins statement is true. It was not my intent to say; look
here that is what Goldhagen said, you better watch out and I do not have
the habit to read political book and did not say that Ken is lying when
he told me that there is no reverence in Goldhagens book about Collins
quote.

I could go the library put reading books I usually do this in the winter
time.
The funny part with books is that everybody reading books with the
exception of technical book has his own interpretation. This manifest
itself when you look at religion and the bible. There was suppose to be
only one book how come there are so many different sects.

I have a library of approx. 300 books. The majority of this books are of
technical nature. In addition I have hundreds of news paper clipping of
political events. Not only in regard to the holocaust but also of what
is going on the local, Provincial federal and world scene.

You have to run this by me again: You like me to admit that I do not
know what Goldhagen had to say? Should I buy everybody’s book to find
out what they have to say? Listen boy Mister Collins made reference to
mister Goldhagen and now you are trying to deny me the right to say what
he had to say about him. Are you sure that you have all your faculties? 
Mr Slepokuo had the courtesy to post Mister Collins speech which made
reverence to Goldhagen. Now a dirt like you comes along that I should
not use this reverence because it does not fit into your hate
propoganty? Right? Oh I know, now you are going to tell me that YOU
PEOPLE are the chosen ones and have special right which cannot be given
to others. What a clown!!

It was not Slepokuos job to find out if collins was telling the truth.
Nowhere did he say the Collins was right or wrong on this!

Did I know that this assertion was false? That is easy to say. Right now
you are telling me that it is false. Why should I trust you? because you
say so? Suppose Collins uses the same argument, what happen than?

On faith? What nonsense. I read news papers every day and make the
decision what is interesting  to talk about.

Lets get it in your head, you are a nobody to begin with and are acting
as a mouthpiece for a big organization. It doesn’t matter what you say.
Fact is that your sponsors are trying to censor people you do not agree
with. You do not like what Collins has to say and you  made sure that
Zundel is silenced. As you noticed I was using the word YOU.

You are part of an organization wherever you like it or not. Life with
it

Perhaps no is the time for you to make the proper exit. Do it soon, so I
can put the manhole cover back on, Will you?

Maybe McVay has to win at all cost? Or he is afraid to show his
weakness? Or the reverse gear in his car is gone? Or he feels things 
could go out of control. Perhaps he has no instructions from higher up
what to do next. So many reasons and no easy answers. Could it be that
Stalin is beyond his plan not to listen to somebody else’s IDEAS?  
Naaa.  

He is just ignorant.

So what is wrong when he asked me how I got this information that I gave
him the source? I have no interest to read all of Collins articles in
the North shore news and doing research on everything he says. By the
way most of Collins articles I picked up at the cafeteria. There are
hundreds  or thousands of quotes including the one Collins made about
Goldhagen everyday in newspapers or news group. As a matter of fact if I
would go after every quote about the second world war or the holocaust
and ask for citations, I would probably spend the read of my live doing
nothing else. Since when is it a crime to mention what you read on the
Internet? Where did I say that I am not taking Ken’s word for it that
this quote is not in this book? What I said that I have to be neutral on
this. Do you know how to reach Collins and ask him what he thinks of
this. I would be nice to know how he came to his conclusion.

It would depend how much interest I have on mushrooms. Getting in an
argument about this would depend on his opinion and only. The best way
to solve this problem would be to ask his opponent for a debate. OK. I
hope  we are not having a debate on chicken soup next.

He quoted an article by Doug Collins he made in Oliver BC He made
reverences to Sol Littman, the Globe & Mail, Ernest Zundel, About the
Jewish congress, Goldhagen, Bergen Belsen, David Lethbridge, Attorney
General Ujjal Dosanjh, the Human Rights  Commission, George Orwell, (how
can I get a hold of Orwell), the Alberta Press Act from 1933, Harry
Abrams the founder of B’Nai Brith in Victoria BC, Winston Churchill and
many many more reverences. To be fair I would have to check each and
everyone of his reverences out. How long would this take you think.
After all I quoted his whole speech. Get real.

Right now the only interest you have to get me read the BOOK? That what
religious people are telling me too, I should read their Bible. How
about Reading Hitlers Mein Kampf?  I read that one too and what a waste
of time this was for me. I would have been better of to take a walk in
the Park.

That I would like to know. Question? Would he come out in the open and
tell me and others from what source he is getting his information’s. I
am willing to wait for his answer and I hope that he is truthful about
this. Perhaps I do put my hopes too high.

The following is the text of the speech made by the veteran journalist
Doug Collins after the forced cancellation of a free speech conference
in Oliver, British Columbia, slated for March 21, 1998, at Oliver's 
city hall. It is published here as a censorship-busting exercise in free
speech.

Doug Collins:

These are extraordinary times in Canada. Dangerous ones, too. The attack
on freedom of speech is massive. It has been going on for many years,
beginning in 1971 when the federal hate laws were passed. I was covering
parliament at the time and saw it happen at first hand. Since then
situation has grown progressively worse. It has now reached the stage
where under the B.C. Human Rights Code a person could be taken before a
human rights tribunal for telling a Newfie joke. It just depends on
whether Ujjal Dosanjh and the provincial government want to go after
him; in other words, whether he is a sanctioned target - sanctioned by
the politically correct and pressure groups like Sol Littman's Simon
Wiesenthal Centre.

It's disappointing that the establishment media are suckers for
propaganda
put out by those groups. All that's needed for them to press the panic
button and produce scare headlines is for the usual trigger words to be
used - neo-Nazi, white supremacist, racist, anti-Semitic. The issues are
rarely debated. So they resort to calling people names. Meanwhile, real
reporting seems to be out of fashion, taking handouts is very much in
fashion. The stories in the Okanagan media have been good examples of
that, as was Thursday's scare story in the Globe & Mail. Call it the
spirit of the times. Forty years ago we saw another spirit of the times.
It was called McCarthyism. Anyone who wanted medicare could be demonized
and seen as a Communist. I lived through those times, too, but many of
today's media weren't around then. So let's forgive them, for they know
not what they do. But it's time some of them grew up.

In the United States none of the anti-free speech laws that decorate the
landscape in Canada would get to first base. They have a Constitution
that protects free expression. We don't. Our Charter of Rights and 
Freedoms is a leaky vessel, which is why teachers and others can be 
fired from their jobs for holding the wrong views. In this country, 
too, an author like David Irving can be arrested while making a dinner
speech about free speech, put into handcuffs, and deported on an 
immigration pretext - while many killers and crooks of all kinds are 
allowed to remain here and while Asian gangs roam Vancouver on drive-by
shootings. That's something else the people of Oliver might think about
when they sign petitions asking the Attorney General in effect to go 
after Mr. Klatt for running an Internet service. But once again, let's
not blame them. They are victims of a massive propaganda campaign. 
That's what I was getting at when I wrote that famous or infamous 
column on Hollywood Propaganda. 

My interest in freedom of speech began a long time ago. When Ernst
Zundel was prosecuted for "spreading false news" in 1985 I appeared 
for the defence. I had never heard of the guy but it was
incomprehensible
to me that a man could be prosecuted for spreading false news. As I told
the court, Santa Claus spreads false news, the weatherman spreads false
news,and any reporter who has ever reported what a politician has had 
to say is probably spreading false news. Today's media are particularly 
good at spreading false news. The Globe & Mail story about this meeting 
that appeared on Thursday was liberally sprinkled with false news, as 
Oliver has good reason to know. In the Zundel case, of course, the 
Supreme Court of Canada agreed with me in the end and the false news law
was nixed.Littman can count himself lucky. 

But the anti-free speech experts were not discouraged. They invented
human rights commissions.The B.C. Human Rights Act, or Code, as it's 
called now,is a disgrace to the province and to the country. The 
Littmans think it's wonderful, of course, but they would, wouldn't 
they!.

I was charged under that Code. The Canadian Jewish Congress laid a
complaint against me after I'd written a column headed "Hollywood
Propaganda" in which I said that the six million holocaust figure was
nonsense, that the Jewish influence in Hollywood was predominant, and
that the move Schindler's List should have been called Swindler's List.
I said that because the man's own wife denounced him as a swindler, 
and she should know. As for who runs Hollywood, only last Sunday a 
two-hour program was shown on network TV called "Hollywoodism," which
confirmed my view in spades. I also stated in the column that I was 
tired of hate literature in the form of films, and that Schindler's 
List had to be the 555th. movie on the same subject. Think about 
that, when the Littmans and the Canadian Jewish Congress fulminate 
about hate literature. How would you feel if you were a German born 
long after Hitler was dead and you were reminded every day that your
grandfather did the wrong thing? Ask yourselves how you would feel if
you were a young German, being told by Daniel Goldhagen, a Jewish 
professor in New York, that Germans have a pathological hatred of Jews?
That's what he did in his book Hitler's Willing Executioners. Isn't 
that hate literature? But there's not much fuss about that. The book 
is freely available in Canada, while books to which the pressure groups
object are not. They are stopped at the border.

Reverse the Goldhagen thing and consider what the reaction would be if
someone wrote a book claiming that all Jews are crooks. What it boils
down to of course is that one man's Hitler is another man's Hemingway.

It's now over half a century since the war ended but from what see on TV
and you get in the media you might think it ended two weeks ago. 
As it happens, I know a lot more about Nazis than most of my critics do.
I was a prisoner of war in Germany until I escaped. I saw Bergen Belsen
concentration camp on the way up through Germany in 1945 after I had
rejoined the forces, and for some years after the war I was a Political
Intelligence Officer working on the de-Nazification of Germany. In
short,I have seen a lot of real Nazis, not just the ersatz types of 
which Sol Littman and that Communist academic David Lethbridge of 
Salmon Arm are so oncerned about.

In Lethbridge's case, at least, he seems to be quite UNconcerned about
the many more millions who died under communism. I might also say that
even if I was wrong, and I wasn't, in a democracy we are supposed to
have
the right to be wrong. Or is that now also out of fashion, with a
Ministry
of Truth headed by Littman and Co.? If so, then Oliver would have to be
the
Hate Capital of Canada and I would have to be an agent for
neo-Nazis,which
is what he called me on television. And speaking of television, it's
one thing to denounce people from a distance and quite another to face
them in debate. I debated free speech for an hour with Littman on CBC
Newsworld and in the viewer poll that was taken 73% voted for me and for
free speech.

As for that rights tribunal I faced, even a carefully selected
adjudicator had to dismiss the case. No hate here, as the North Shore 
News headline put it. And why did she throw out the complaint? Not, in 
my opinion, because she would not have liked to find me guilty, but 
because she knew that if the case had gone to court the complaint would 
have been found to be unconstitutional. Why? Because the B.C. Human
Rights
Code is a Heresy Act, pure and simple. A Heresy Act, which is one reason 
why I am here today, Mr. Attorney General Ujjal Dosanjh. Here are the 
facts: Under that law, truth is no defence; fair comment is not a
defence,
as it is with libel and slander; publication in the public
interest is not a defence, innocent intent is not a defence, and even
work done for scientific purposes is not a defence. 

Let me repeat what the lawyer for the B.C. Press Council said: this is a
law that attempts to stifle speech that is not criminal. That's where
we're at in B.C.

On top of all that the government itself can make its own complaints to
its own Human Rights Commission even when no complaint has been entered
by a third party. So they can get you going and coming even if no-one
else
wants to. Talk about Big Brother and George Orwell's 1984! Fortunately,
we still have courts in this country that can strike down the acts of 
these would-be dictators. In 1938 the Alberta Press Act was struck down,
just as the false news law was later. But the intent of the politicians 
who pass such laws is the same as it is in the dictatorships. 

But while the courts cogitate, speech in Canada is not free at all. It
comes at a price, which is why I no longer sing the national anthem. We
are not the True North Strong and Free. When we revert to being strong
and free I'll start singing again. In my case the defence of a free 
press has cost the North Shore News well over $200,000. Others, like 
Mr.Fromm,have been hounded from their jobs. But there is a bright side
to this. In the case of the North Shore News the public has subscribed 
nearly $150,000 to its defence fund, which shows that you can't fool 
all the people all the time.

It's not over, though. A man describing himself in his complaint as "a
Jewish person" - Harry Abrams, the founder of B'Nai Brith in Victoria -
has launched another action against me with those rights experts over
there who are led by that leather-clad lesbian, Mary Woo Sims, the chief
commissioner. He complains about six columns, including the Hollywood
propaganda column that was dismissed in the first tribunal. Double
jeopardy? What's that? Let's have a rematch, they say. 

Instead of waiting for handouts from Littman and Lethbridge about white
supremacists and other bogeymen, the media should take the trouble to
examine what's going on. Lethbridge and other free speech artists
screamed that this meeting should be stopped. So it was. Only meetings 
of which he approved would be allowed. He's a fascist of the Left. Yet 
the media quote him as if he were an oracle. 

If they did take a look at things, the media would find a firm link
between the politically correct of the militant left and government, who
are often one and the same, as in B.C. They would find that Lethbridge
was a key speaker at, and organizer of, the pro-violence Anti-Racist 
Action Trotskyite mob in Toronto that has been barred from school 
grounds.They would find that Alan Dutton the big anti-racist in B.C. 
was instrumental in getting grants for the ARA from Toronto Metro 
Council. He himself has received hundreds of thousand of dollars in 
grants from government, which finances the anti-freedom movement. . 
They would also find that hotels have been bullied - terrorized might
be a more appropriate term - into not renting premises to groups of 
whom the Lethbridges and the Duttons disapprove.That happened in 
Surrey a couple of years ago when the late Pat Burns of radio fame 
was to have been the keynote speaker and I was to have spoken on Bill 
33, which has become B.C.'s Heresy Act. They would find that no less 
a person than the Attorney General of this province approved of what 
they were doing. They would find that the Duttons and Letbridges
act as advisers to the Attonery General. They would find that the
Alberta Human Rights Commission told a hotel in Edmonton not to give
space to a group that planned to discuss the Canadian Constitution.
They would also find that attempts have been made by the same people
to deny groups space in public libraries. The same Harry Abrams I 
mentioned a minute ago is a leader in that endeavor. He has asked the 
National Library Association to do that, using the trigger word "hate 
groups". But so far the libraries have refused to be panicked. And if
the media are too lazy to seek all that out by themselves, I can help 
them. Yes, that's the kind of stuff you should be doing, Oliver
Chronicle,
Penticton Herald, Globe and Mail, Vancouver Sun, CBC and all the rest of
you. You don't do it, but I can tell you again this: I'm old enough to 
have seen all this happen before.

What's going on is really no different in spirit from what the
Brownshirts got up to in Nazi Germany. In Nazi Germany, it was enough 
to shout Jew, Communist or Socialist. Today in Canada it's enough to 
shout white supremacist, neo-Nazi, and anti-Semite. The ideologies are
different but the spirit is the same. A word or two about the Internet.
The Internet is seen by the Littmans as a threat. How dreadful that 
people can actually send out messages to the world without their having 
to go through the filter of a press dominated by the poltivally correct.
So - kill the Internet, and if the Internet can’t be killed then ruin 
anyone, like Mr. Klatt, who doesn't take orders and won't act as a
censor.
I should point out here that I have seen nothing of what the Littmans
and
Co are bitching about, nor have most of the media who echo what Littman 
says. I had never even heard of the Charlemagne Hammerheads before this 
affair blew up and I have never had lunch with a skinhead, ans what they
are supposed to be saying is certainly not my cup of tea.But I'll tell
you
something. I can be my own censor, thanks very much. I don't need
Littman's 
help.The same option is open to all Internet users. But Littman can't
trust
the public. He wants to treat people like children, while yelling about 
discrimination. To which I say, physician, heal thyself. 

Yes, the idea is to kill the Internet, or at least the controversial
voices on it that Littman doesn't like. And of course there are nasty
voices on it, although I've never bothered to tune in to them. But don't
be fooled by the idea that Littman's censorship would end with stopping
them. Let me give you an example of what I mean. When the Barrett
government got going on its human rights program in the early 1970s we
were told that all they wanted to do was to ensure fair play in hiring
and housing. But these things begin small and end large, and today human
rights commissions in this country are a menace to human rights. Rights
have become wrongs, and in today in B.C. the human rights gang is a
direct threat to freedom of the press. 

It is also said that you can learn how to make bombs on the Internet. So
you can. But you can also learn how to make bombs by other means. The
left-wing Squamish Five didn't need any Internet to learn how to make
and explode bombs in the 1980s, and people intent on making bombs today
don't need the Internet either.

When Winston Churchill lost the British election in 1945, he said,
"Trust the people." I follow that precept and it's my hope that in 
spite of the demonization of dissidents that ‘s going on now, 
Canadians will hold steady. We've been through crazy times before
and survived, and I'm here today in the expectation that we'll survive
this one. 

Meanwhile, Mayor Larson should put on her thinking cap instead of
pandering to the Littmans and giving way to bullies. Then there's
councillor Terry Shafer. He has said that the matter of this meeting is
a tough issue, particularly when the veterans are celebrating the 
creation of Canadian Legion here. They fought, he said so as to allow 
us the privilege of expressing our opinions, NO MATTER HOW AWFUL 
THOSE OPINIONS MAY BE.

What do you know about those opinions, councillor? Have you heard or
read any of them or are you taking the time from Littman and Lethbridge?
And what about your local Liberal MLA, Bill Barisoff? Has he had
anything
critical to say about the NDP's Heresy Law? If he has I must have been
snoozing. But he's reported as telling Litttman he'd be happy to work
with him to ensure that hate literature that violates the Criminal Code
does not appear anywhere in Canada. Does he take Littman's word for what
hate literature is? If you ask me, he's a bit like the Red Queen in
Alice
in Wonderland who said, sentence first, trial later. 

I'll leave you with a couple of other thoughts. A columnist said in
print last year that I give free speech a bad name. I replied by
pointing
out that free speech has always had a bad name. Free speech had a bad
name
when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of Wittingen
cathedral. It had a bad name when John Tyndale was burned at the stake
for translating the Bible into English. It had a bad name when John
Milton
wrote that truth and falsehood should grapple freely. It had a bad name
when the Ayatolla in Iran proclaimed a death sentence on Salman Rushdie,
and when the communists were up before the un-American Activities
Committee. It had a bad name two thousand years ago, when a man called
Jesus was nailed to the cross. One might almost say that free speech has
NEVER had a GOOD name, and thanks to the Littmans and the Lethbridges
and others like them free speech certainly has a bad name today. As I
mentioned earlier, if you are for free speech you are a neo-Nazi, a
crypto-Nazi, a white supremacist, or an anti-Semite. 

This sort of thing is not confined to Canada. It exists right across the
Western world. In Australia, Terry Lane, a well-known print and radio
commentator got into trouble with the local Littmans and wrote a letter
to the Australian Jewish News in 1992 in which he stated the following:

"The Zionist lobby in this country is malicious, implacable, mendacious
and dangerous. What's more, once the expression anti-Semitism hits the
air, or, heaven forfend, the sacred six million is uttered...we are
thrown to the jackals. I surrender. To the Zionists I say, you win. 
To the Palestinians, forgive my cowardice." 

In 1938, the Supreme Court of Canada had this to say when it struck down
the Alberta Press Act:

"Freedom of discussion is essential to enlighten public opinion in a
democratic state. It cannot be curtailed without affecting the right of
people to be informed, independent of government, concerning matters of
public interest. There must be untrammelled publication of news and
opinion." UNTRAMMELLED! It stated further that if the Social Credit law
were allowed to stand, the Socred doctrine would become a kind of
religious dogma that the people would buck at their peril. 

If the Littmans and other critics have their way, their dogmas would
become a kind of religion, too, that we would buck at our peril, and we
are already are buckinjg at our peril. So I say to hell with them, and
you can quote me. How about it, Mayor Larson and others who are running
for cover? How about it, Bill Barisoff? I can tell you where you should
stand. You should be standing right here with the rest of us, not
passing
by on the other side of the street. I will conclude by saying that I am 
77 years of age, that I defended freedom in the 1940s when Hitler was on
the loose, in the 1950s when McCarthy was on the loose, in the 1970s
when
the federal hate laws were passed, in the 1990s when those idiots in 
Victoria passed their misnamed Human Rights Act, and that I shall go on 
defending freedom until the day I die.

Thank you.

Check Collins speech again and compare what I said about Goldhagen. I am
really glad that you are around. Now people can easily see how people
like you operate to get your way. You prove to me without and thought
that you are dirt and nothing else put dirt. Back in your hole till next
time you filth.

Mister Collins is a wonderful man. A man with dignity and life
experiences. Yes I can see it now we need more people like him.

I will continue to post Collins marvelous speech again and again till
you chock on it.

The following is the text of the speech made by the veteran journalist
Doug Collins after the forced cancellation of a free speech conference
in Oliver, British Columbia, slated for March 21, 1998, at Oliver's 
city hall. It is published here as a censorship-busting exercise in free

and free I'll start singing again. In my case the defence of a free 
press has cost the North Shore News well over $200,000. Others, like 
Mr.Fromm,have been hounded from their jobs. But there is a bright side
to this. In the case of the North Shore News the public has subscribed 
nearly $150,000 to its defence fund, which shows that you can't fool 
all the people all the time.

It's not over, though. A man describing himself in his complaint as "a
Jewish person" - Harry Abrams, the founder of B'Nai Brith in Victoria -
has launched another action against me with those rights experts over
there who are led by that leather-clad lesbian, Mary Woo Sims, the chief
commissioner. He complains about six columns, including the Hollywood
propaganda column that was dismissed in the first tribunal. Double
jeopardy? What's that? Let's have a rematch, they say. 

Instead of waiting for handouts from Littman and Lethbridge about white
supremacists and other bogeymen, the media should take the trouble to
examine what's going on. Lethbridge and other free speech artists
screamed that this meeting should be stopped. So it was. Only meetings 
of which he approved would be allowed. He's a fascist of the Left. Yet 
the media quote him as if he were an oracle. 

If they did take a look at things, the media would find a firm link
between the politically correct of the militant left and government, who
are often one and the same, as in B.C. They would find that Lethbridge
was a key speaker at, and organizer of, the pro-violence Anti-Racist 
Action Trotskyite mob in Toronto that has been barred from school 
grounds.They would find that Alan Dutton the big anti-racist in B.C. 
was instrumental in getting grants for the ARA from Toronto Metro 
Council. He himself has received hundreds of thousand of dollars in 
grants from government, which finances the anti-freedom movement. . 
They would also find that hotels have been bullied - terrorized might
be a more appropriate term - into not renting premises to groups of 
whom the Lethbridges and the Duttons disapprove.That happened in 
Surrey a couple of years ago when the late Pat Burns of radio fame 
was to have been the keynote speaker and I was to have spoken on Bill 
33, which has become B.C.'s Heresy Act. They would find that no less 
a person than the Attorney General of this province approved of what 
they were doing. They would find that the Duttons and Letbridges
act as advisers to the Attonery General. They would find that the
Alberta Human Rights Commission told a hotel in Edmonton not to give
space to a group that planned to discuss the Canadian Constitution.
They would also find that attempts have been made by the same people
to deny groups space in public libraries. The same Harry Abrams I 
mentioned a minute ago is a leader in that endeavor. He has asked the 
National Library Association to do that, using the trigger word "hate 
groups". But so far the libraries have refused to be panicked. And if
the media are too lazy to seek all that out by themselves, I can help 
them. Yes, that's the kind of stuff you should be doing, Oliver
Chronicle,
Penticton Herald, Globe and Mail, Vancouver Sun, CBC and all the rest of
you. You don't do it, but I can tell you again this: I'm old enough to 
have seen all this happen before.

What's going on is really no different in spirit from what the
Brownshirts got up to in Nazi Germany. In Nazi Germany, it was enough 
to shout Jew, Communist or Socialist. Today in Canada it's enough to 
shout white supremacist, neo-Nazi, and anti-Semite. The ideologies are
different but the spirit is the same. A word or two about the Internet.
The Internet is seen by the Littmans as a threat. How dreadful that 
people can actually send out messages to the world without their having 
to go through the filter of a press dominated by the poltivally correct.
So - kill the Internet, and if the Internet can’t be killed then ruin 
anyone, like Mr. Klatt, who doesn't take orders and won't act as a
censor.
I should point out here that I have seen nothing of what the Littmans
and
Co are bitching about, nor have most of the media who echo what Littman 
says. I had never even heard of the Charlemagne Hammerheads before this 
affair blew up and I have never had lunch with a skinhead, ans what they
are supposed to be saying is certainly not my cup of tea.But I'll tell
you
something. I can be my own censor, thanks very much. I don't need
Littman's 
help.The same option is open to all Internet users. But Littman can't
trust
the public. He wants to treat people like children, while yelling about 
discrimination. To which I say, physician, heal thyself. 

Yes, the idea is to kill the Internet, or at least the controversial
voices on it that Littman doesn't like. And of course there are nasty
voices on it, although I've never bothered to tune in to them. But don't
be fooled by the idea that Littman's censorship would end with stopping
them. Let me give you an example of what I mean. When the Barrett
government got going on its human rights program in the early 1970s we
were told that all they wanted to do was to ensure fair play in hiring
and housing. But these things begin small and end large, and today human
rights commissions in this country are a menace to human rights. Rights
have become wrongs, and in today in B.C. the human rights gang is a
direct threat to freedom of the press. 

It is also said that you can learn how to make bombs on the Internet. So
you can. But you can also learn how to make bombs by other means. The
left-wing Squamish Five didn't need any Internet to learn how to make
and explode bombs in the 1980s, and people intent on making bombs today
don't need the Internet either.

When Winston Churchill lost the British election in 1945, he said,
"Trust the people." I follow that precept and it's my hope that in 
spite of the demonization of dissidents that ‘s going on now, 
Canadians will hold steady. We've been through crazy times before
and survived, and I'm here today in the expectation that we'll survive
this one. 

Meanwhile, Mayor Larson should put on her thinking cap instead of
pandering to the Littmans and giving way to bullies. Then there's
councillor Terry Shafer. He has said that the matter of this meeting is
a tough issue, particularly when the veterans are celebrating the 
creation of Canadian Legion here. They fought, he said so as to allow 
us the privilege of expressing our opinions, NO MATTER HOW AWFUL 
THOSE OPINIONS MAY BE.

What do you know about those opinions, councillor? Have you heard or
read any of them or are you taking the time from Littman and Lethbridge?
And what about your local Liberal MLA, Bill Barisoff? Has he had
anything
critical to say about the NDP's Heresy Law? If he has I must have been
snoozing. But he's reported as telling Litttman he'd be happy to work
with him to ensure that hate literature that violates the Criminal Code
does not appear anywhere in Canada. Does he take Littman's word for what
hate literature is? If you ask me, he's a bit like the Red Queen in
Alice
in Wonderland who said, sentence first, trial later. 

I'll leave you with a couple of other thoughts. A columnist said in
print last year that I give free speech a bad name. I replied by
pointing
out that free speech has always had a bad name. Free speech had a bad
name
when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of Wittingen
cathedral. It had a bad name when John Tyndale was burned at the stake
for translating the Bible into English. It had a bad name when John
Milton
wrote that truth and falsehood should grapple freely. It had a bad name
when the Ayatolla in Iran proclaimed a death sentence on Salman Rushdie,
and when the communists were up before the un-American Activities
Committee. It had a bad name two thousand years ago, when a man called
Jesus was nailed to the cross. One might almost say that free speech has
NEVER had a GOOD name, and thanks to the Littmans and the Lethbridges
and others like them free speech certainly has a bad name today. As I
mentioned earlier, if you are for free speech you are a neo-Nazi, a
crypto-Nazi, a white supremacist, or an anti-Semite. 

This sort of thing is not confined to Canada. It exists right across the
Western world. In Australia, Terry Lane, a well-known print and radio
commentator got into trouble with the local Littmans and wrote a letter
to the Australian Jewish News in 1992 in which he stated the following:

"The Zionist lobby in this country is malicious, implacable, mendacious
and dangerous. What's more, once the expression anti-Semitism hits the
air, or, heaven forfend, the sacred six million is uttered...we are
thrown to the jackals. I surrender. To the Zionists I say, you win. 
To the Palestinians, forgive my cowardice." 

In 1938, the Supreme Court of Canada had this to say when it struck down
the Alberta Press Act:

"Freedom of discussion is essential to enlighten public opinion in a
democratic state. It cannot be curtailed without affecting the right of
people to be informed, independent of government, concerning matters of
public interest. There must be untrammelled publication of news and
opinion." UNTRAMMELLED! It stated further that if the Social Credit law
were allowed to stand, the Socred doctrine would become a kind of
religious dogma that the people would buck at their peril. 

If the Littmans and other critics have their way, their dogmas would
become a kind of religion, too, that we would buck at our peril, and we
are already are buckinjg at our peril. So I say to hell with them, and
you can quote me. How about it, Mayor Larson and others who are running
for cover? How about it, Bill Barisoff? I can tell you where you should
stand. You should be standing right here with the rest of us, not
passing
by on the other side of the street. I will conclude by saying that I am 
77 years of age, that I defended freedom in the 1940s when Hitler was on
the loose, in the 1950s when McCarthy was on the loose, in the 1970s
when
the federal hate laws were passed, in the 1990s when those idiots in 
Victoria passed their misnamed Human Rights Act, and that I shall go on 
defending freedom until the day I die.

Thank you.

This has been done already. Using words like THE Germans or THEY. Now a
Mister Daniel Goldhagen, Jewish professor in New York say’s that all
German have a pathological hatred of Jews and wrote a book about this
"Willing Executioners. You think this book will be banned in Canada for
promoting hatred? What would the reaction be if he wrote ALL JEWS ARE
CROOKS? One prominent Jew said; "The world should never stop to hate
Germans." In earlier times Christians said: The Jews killed Jesus.

A Mister Oerest Slepokura quotet A Mister Doug Collins speech from March
21, 1998.
In there and this are the words:

How would you feel if you were a German born long after Hitler was dead
and you were reminded every day that your grandfather did the wrong
thing? Ask yourselves how you would feel if you were a young German,
being told by Daniel Goldhagen, a Jewish professor in New York, that
Germans have a pathalogigal hatred of Jews?  That’s what he did in his
book "Hitler’s Willing Executioners". But there’s not much fuss about
that.

The next episode: You boy are saying that I quoted Goldhagen. Where are
the quotation marks?
Were is what my dictionary say. You Ken BOY are a fraud and a disgrace
to your community

Quote: Somebodys word repeated exactly by another person from a person
pasage  or speech.

Quotation marks: One pair of marks to mark used to indicate the
beginning and end of a quotqtion.

One more time Collins speech for you.

The following is the text of the speech made by the veteran journalist
Doug Collins after the forced cancellation of a free speech conference
in Oliver, British Columbia, slated for March 21, 1998, at Oliver's 
city hall. It is published here as a censorship-busting exercise in free
speech. 

=-=-=-=-=

Doug Collins:

These are extraordinary times in Canada. Dangerous ones, too. The attack
on freedom of speech is massive. It has been going on for many years,
beginning in 1971 when the federal hate laws were passed. I was covering
parliament at the time and saw it happen at first hand. Since then
situation has grown progressively worse. It has now reached the stage
where under the B.C. Human Rights Code a person could be taken before a
human rights tribunal for telling a Newfie joke. It just depends on
whether Ujjal Dosanjh and the provincial government want to go after
him; in other words, whether he is a sanctioned target - sanctioned by
the politically correct and pressure groups like Sol Littman's Simon
Wiesenthal Centre.

It's disappointing that the establishment media are suckers for
propaganda
put out by those groups. All that's needed for them to press the panic
button and produce scare headlines is for the usual trigger words to be
used - neo-Nazi, white supremacist, racist, anti-Semitic. The issues are
rarely debated. So they resort to calling people names. Meanwhile, real
reporting seems to be out of fashion, taking handouts is very much in
fashion. The stories in the Okanagan media have been good examples of
that, as was Thursday's scare story in the Globe & Mail. Call it the
spirit of the times. Forty years ago we saw another spirit of the times.
It was called McCarthyism. Anyone who wanted medicare could be demonized
and seen as a Communist. I lived through those times, too, but many of
today's media weren't around then. So let's forgive them, for they know
not what they do. But it's time some of them grew up.

In the United States none of the anti-free speech laws that decorate the
landscape in Canada would get to first base. They have a Constitution
that protects free expression. We don't. Our Charter of Rights and 
Freedoms is a leaky vessel, which is why teachers and others can be 
fired from their jobs for holding the wrong views. In this country, 
too, an author like David Irving can be arrested while making a dinner
speech about free speech, put into handcuffs, and deported on an 
immigration pretext - while many killers and crooks of all kinds are 
allowed to remain here and while Asian gangs roam Vancouver on drive-by
shootings. That's something else the people of Oliver might think about
when they sign petitions asking the Attorney General in effect to go 
after Mr. Klatt for running an Internet service. But once again, let's
not blame them. They are victims of a massive propaganda campaign. 
That's what I was getting at when I wrote that famous or infamous 
column on Hollywood Propaganda. 

My interest in freedom of speech began a long time ago. When Ernst
Zundel was prosecuted for "spreading false news" in 1985 I appeared 
for the defence. I had never heard of the guy but it was
incomprehensible
to me that a man could be prosecuted for spreading false news. As I told
the court, Santa Claus spreads false news, the weatherman spreads false
news,and any reporter who has ever reported what a politician has had 
to say is probably spreading false news. Today's media are particularly 
good at spreading false news. The Globe & Mail story about this meeting 
that appeared on Thursday was liberally sprinkled with false news, as 
Oliver has good reason to know. In the Zundel case, of course, the 
Supreme Court of Canada agreed with me in the end and the false news law
was nixed.Littman can count himself lucky. 

But the anti-free speech experts were not discouraged. They invented
human rights commissions.The B.C. Human Rights Act, or Code, as it's 
called now,is a disgrace to the province and to the country. The 
Littmans think it's wonderful, of course, but they would, wouldn't 
they!.

I was charged under that Code. The Canadian Jewish Congress laid a
complaint against me after I'd written a column headed "Hollywood
Propaganda" in which I said that the six million holocaust figure was
nonsense, that the Jewish influence in Hollywood was predominant, and
that the move Schindler's List should have been called Swindler's List.
I said that because the man's own wife denounced him as a swindler, 
and she should know. As for who runs Hollywood, only last Sunday a 
two-hour program was shown on network TV called "Hollywoodism," which
confirmed my view in spades. I also stated in the column that I was 
tired of hate literature in the form of films, and that Schindler's 
List had to be the 555th. movie on the same subject. Think about 
that, when the Littmans and the Canadian Jewish Congress fulminate 
about hate literature. How would you feel if you were a German born 
long after Hitler was dead and you were reminded every day that your
grandfather did the wrong thing? Ask yourselves how you would feel if
you were a young German, being told by Daniel Goldhagen, a Jewish 
professor in New York, that Germans have a pathological hatred of Jews?
That's what he did in his book Hitler's Willing Executioners. Isn't 
that hate literature? But there's not much fuss about that. The book 
is freely available in Canada, while books to which the pressure groups
object are not. They are stopped at the border.

Reverse the Goldhagen thing and consider what the reaction would be if
someone wrote a book claiming that all Jews are crooks. What it boils
down to of course is that one man's Hitler is another man's Hemingway.

It's now over half a century since the war ended but from what see on TV
and you get in the media you might think it ended two weeks ago. 
As it happens, I know a lot more about Nazis than most of my critics do.
I was a prisoner of war in Germany until I escaped. I saw Bergen Belsen
concentration camp on the way up through Germany in 1945 after I had
rejoined the forces, and for some years after the war I was a Political
Intelligence Officer working on the de-Nazification of Germany. In
short,I have seen a lot of real Nazis, not just the ersatz types of 
which Sol Littman and that Communist academic David Lethbridge of 
Salmon Arm are so oncerned about.

In Lethbridge's case, at least, he seems to be quite UNconcerned about
the many more millions who died under communism. I might also say that
even if I was wrong, and I wasn't, in a democracy we are supposed to
have
the right to be wrong. Or is that now also out of fashion, with a
Ministry
of Truth headed by Littman and Co.? If so, then Oliver would have to be
the
Hate Capital of Canada and I would have to be an agent for
neo-Nazis,which
is what he called me on television. And speaking of television, it's
one thing to denounce people from a distance and quite another to face
them in debate. I debated free speech for an hour with Littman on CBC
Newsworld and in the viewer poll that was taken 73% voted for me and for
free speech.

As for that rights tribunal I faced, even a carefully selected
adjudicator had to dismiss the case. No hate here, as the North Shore 
News headline put it. And why did she throw out the complaint? Not, in 
my opinion, because she would not have liked to find me guilty, but 
because she knew that if the case had gone to court the complaint would 
have been found to be unconstitutional. Why? Because the B.C. Human
Rights
Code is a Heresy Act, pure and simple. A Heresy Act, which is one reason 
why I am here today, Mr. Attorney General Ujjal Dosanjh. Here are the 
facts: Under that law, truth is no defence; fair comment is not a
defence,
as it is with libel and slander; publication in the public
interest is not a defence, innocent intent is not a defence, and even
work done for scientific purposes is not a defence. 

Let me repeat what the lawyer for the B.C. Press Council said: this is a
law that attempts to stifle speech that is not criminal. That's where
we're at in B.C.

On top of all that the government itself can make its own complaints to
its own Human Rights Commission even when no complaint has been entered
by a third party. So they can get you going and coming even if no-one
else
wants to. Talk about Big Brother and George Orwell's 1984! Fortunately,
we still have courts in this country that can strike down the acts of 
these would-be dictators. In 1938 the Alberta Press Act was struck down,
just as the false news law was later. But the intent of the politicians 
who pass such laws is the same as it is in the dictatorships. 

But while the courts cogitate, speech in Canada is not free at all. It
comes at a price, which is why I no longer sing the national anthem. We
are not the True North Strong and Free. When we revert to being strong
and free I'll start singing again. In my case the defence of a free 
press has cost the North Shore News well over $200,000. Others, like 
Mr.Fromm,have been hounded from their jobs. But there is a bright side
to this. In the case of the North Shore News the public has subscribed 
nearly $150,000 to its defence fund, which shows that you can't fool 
all the people all the time.

It's not over, though. A man describing himself in his complaint as "a
Jewish person" - Harry Abrams, the founder of B'Nai Brith in Victoria -
has launched another action against me with those rights experts over
there who are led by that leather-clad lesbian, Mary Woo Sims, the chief
commissioner. He complains about six columns, including the Hollywood
propaganda column that was dismissed in the first tribunal. Double
jeopardy? What's that? Let's have a rematch, they say. 

Instead of waiting for handouts from Littman and Lethbridge about white
supremacists and other bogeymen, the media should take the trouble to
examine what's going on. Lethbridge and other free speech artists
screamed that this meeting should be stopped. So it was. Only meetings 
of which he approved would be allowed. He's a fascist of the Left. Yet 
the media quote him as if he were an oracle. 

If they did take a look at things, the media would find a firm link
between the politically correct of the militant left and government, who
are often one and the same, as in B.C. They would find that Lethbridge
was a key speaker at, and organizer of, the pro-violence Anti-Racist 
Action Trotskyite mob in Toronto that has been barred from school 
grounds.They would find that Alan Dutton the big anti-racist in B.C. 
was instrumental in getting grants for the ARA from Toronto Metro 
Council. He himself has received hundreds of thousand of dollars in 
grants from government, which finances the anti-freedom movement. . 
They would also find that hotels have been bullied - terrorized might
be a more appropriate term - into not renting premises to groups of 
whom the Lethbridges and the Duttons disapprove.That happened in 
Surrey a couple of years ago when the late Pat Burns of radio fame 
was to have been the keynote speaker and I was to have spoken on Bill 
33, which has become B.C.'s Heresy Act. They would find that no less 
a person than the Attorney General of this province approved of what 
they were doing. They would find that the Duttons and Letbridges
act as advisers to the Attonery General. They would find that the
Alberta Human Rights Commission told a hotel in Edmonton not to give
space to a group that planned to discuss the Canadian Constitution.
They would also find that attempts have been made by the same people
to deny groups space in public libraries. The same Harry Abrams I 
mentioned a minute ago is a leader in that endeavor. He has asked the 
National Library Association to do that, using the trigger word "hate

THOSE OPINIONS MAY BE.

What do you know about those opinions, councillor? Have you heard or
read any of them or are you taking the time from Littman and Lethbridge?
And what about your local Liberal MLA, Bill Barisoff? Has he had
anything
critical to say about the NDP's Heresy Law? If he has I must have been
snoozing. But he's reported as telling Litttman he'd be happy to work
with him to ensure that hate literature that violates the Criminal Code
does not appear anywhere in Canada. Does he take Littman's word for what
hate literature is? If you ask me, he's a bit like the Red Queen in
Alice
in Wonderland who said, sentence first, trial later. 

I'll leave you with a couple of other thoughts. A columnist said in
print last year that I give free speech a bad name. I replied by
pointing
out that free speech has always had a bad name. Free speech had a bad
name
when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of Wittingen
cathedral. It had a bad name when John Tyndale was burned at the stake
for translating the Bible into English. It had a bad name when John
Milton
wrote that truth and falsehood should grapple freely. It had a bad name
when the Ayatolla in Iran proclaimed a death sentence on Salman Rushdie,
and when the communists were up before the un-American Activities
Committee. It had a bad name two thousand years ago, when a man called
Jesus was nailed to the cross. One might almost say that free speech has
NEVER had a GOOD name, and thanks to the Littmans and the Lethbridges
and others like them free speech certainly has a bad name today. As I
mentioned earlier, if you are for free speech you are a neo-Nazi, a
crypto-Nazi, a white supremacist, or an anti-Semite. 

This sort of thing is not confined to Canada. It exists right across the
Western world. In Australia, Terry Lane, a well-known print and radio
commentator got into trouble with the local Littmans and wrote a letter
to the Australian Jewish News in 1992 in which he stated the following:

"The Zionist lobby in this country is malicious, implacable, mendacious
and dangerous. What's more, once the expression anti-Semitism hits the
air, or, heaven forfend, the sacred six million is uttered...we are
thrown to the jackals. I surrender. To the Zionists I say, you win. 
To the Palestinians, forgive my cowardice." 

In 1938, the Supreme Court of Canada had this to say when it struck down
the Alberta Press Act:

"Freedom of discussion is essential to enlighten public opinion in a
democratic state. It cannot be curtailed without affecting the right of
people to be informed, independent of government, concerning matters of
public interest. There must be untrammelled publication of news and
opinion." UNTRAMMELLED! It stated further that if the Social Credit law
were allowed to stand, the Socred doctrine would become a kind of
religious dogma that the people would buck at their peril. 

If the Littmans and other critics have their way, their dogmas would
become a kind of religion, too, that we would buck at our peril, and we
are already are buckinjg at our peril. So I say to hell with them, and
you can quote me. How about it, Mayor Larson and others who are running
for cover? How about it, Bill Barisoff? I can tell you where you should
stand. You should be standing right here with the rest of us, not
passing
by on the other side of the street. I will conclude by saying that I am 
77 years of age, that I defended freedom in the 1940s when Hitler was on
the loose, in the 1950s when McCarthy was on the loose, in the 1970s
when
the federal hate laws were passed, in the 1990s when those idiots in 
Victoria passed their misnamed Human Rights Act, and that I shall go on 
defending freedom until the day I die.

Thank you.

This has been done already. Using words like THE Germans or THEY. Now a
Mister Daniel Goldhagen, Jewish professor in New York say’s that all
German have a pathological hatred of Jews and wrote a book about this
"Willing Executioners. You think this book will be banned in Canada for
promoting hatred? What would the reaction be if he wrote ALL JEWS ARE
CROOKS? One prominent Jew said; "The world should never stop to hate
Germans." In earlier times Christians said: The Jews killed Jesus.

Note quotation marks from willing to Germans? Oviosly it did revere to
Collins speech.

21, 1998.
In there and this are the words:

How would you feel if you were a German born long after Hitler was dead
and you were reminded every day that your grandfather did the wrong

McVay is actually lucky that this is not a real live situation and

Still holding my nose.



The following is the text of the speech made by the veteran journalist
Doug Collins after the forced cancellation of a free speech conference
in Oliver, British Columbia, slated for March 21, 1998, at Oliver's 
city hall. It is published here as a censorship-busting exercise in free
speech. 

=-=-=-=-=

Doug Collins:

These are extraordinary times in Canada. Dangerous ones, too. The attack
on freedom of speech is massive. It has been going on for many years,
beginning in 1971 when the federal hate laws were passed. I was covering
parliament at the time and saw it happen at first hand. Since then
situation has grown progressively worse. It has now reached the stage
where under the B.C. Human Rights Code a person could be taken before a
human rights tribunal for telling a Newfie joke. It just depends on
whether Ujjal Dosanjh and the provincial government want to go after
him; in other words, whether he is a sanctioned target - sanctioned by
the politically correct and pressure groups like Sol Littman's Simon
Wiesenthal Centre.

It's disappointing that the establishment media are suckers for
propaganda
put out by those groups. All that's needed for them to press the panic
button and produce scare headlines is for the usual trigger words to be
used - neo-Nazi, white supremacist, racist, anti-Semitic. The issues are
rarely debated. So they resort to calling people names. Meanwhile, real
reporting seems to be out of fashion, taking handouts is very much in
fashion. The stories in the Okanagan media have been good examples of
that, as was Thursday's scare story in the Globe & Mail. Call it the
spirit of the times. Forty years ago we saw another spirit of the times.
It was called McCarthyism. Anyone who wanted medicare could be demonized
and seen as a Communist. I lived through those times, too, but many of
today's media weren't around then. So let's forgive them, for they know
not what they do. But it's time some of them grew up.

In the United States none of the anti-free speech laws that decorate the
landscape in Canada would get to first base. They have a Constitution
that protects free expression. We don't. Our Charter of Rights and 
Freedoms is a leaky vessel, which is why teachers and others can be 
fired from their jobs for holding the wrong views. In this country, 
too, an author like David Irving can be arrested while making a dinner
speech about free speech, put into handcuffs, and deported on an 
immigration pretext - while many killers and crooks of all kinds are 
allowed to remain here and while Asian gangs roam Vancouver on drive-by
shootings. That's something else the people of Oliver might think about
when they sign petitions asking the Attorney General in effect to go 
after Mr. Klatt for running an Internet service. But once again, let's
not blame them. They are victims of a massive propaganda campaign. 
That's what I was getting at when I wrote that famous or infamous 
column on Hollywood Propaganda. 

My interest in freedom of speech began a long time ago. When Ernst
Zundel was prosecuted for "spreading false news" in 1985 I appeared 
for the defence. I had never heard of the guy but it was
incomprehensible
to me that a man could be prosecuted for spreading false news. As I told
the court, Santa Claus spreads false news, the weatherman spreads false
news,and any reporter who has ever reported what a politician has had 
to say is probably spreading false news. Today's media are particularly 
good at spreading false news. The Globe & Mail story about this meeting 
that appeared on Thursday was liberally sprinkled with false news, as 
Oliver has good reason to know. In the Zundel case, of course, the 
Supreme Court of Canada agreed with me in the end and the false news law
was nixed.Littman can count himself lucky. 

But the anti-free speech experts were not discouraged. They invented
human rights commissions.The B.C. Human Rights Act, or Code, as it's 
called now,is a disgrace to the province and to the country. The 
Littmans think it's wonderful, of course, but they would, wouldn't 
they!.

I was charged under that Code. The Canadian Jewish Congress laid a
complaint against me after I'd written a column headed "Hollywood
Propaganda" in which I said that the six million holocaust figure was
nonsense, that the Jewish influence in Hollywood was predominant, and
that the move Schindler's List should have been called Swindler's List.
I said that because the man's own wife denounced him as a swindler, 
and she should know. As for who runs Hollywood, only last Sunday a 
two-hour program was shown on network TV called "Hollywoodism," which
confirmed my view in spades. I also stated in the column that I was 
tired of hate literature in the form of films, and that Schindler's 
List had to be the 555th. movie on the same subject. Think about 
that, when the Littmans and the Canadian Jewish Congress fulminate 
about hate literature. How would you feel if you were a German born 
long after Hitler was dead and you were reminded every day that your
grandfather did the wrong thing? Ask yourselves how you would feel if
you were a young German, being told by Daniel Goldhagen, a Jewish 
professor in New York, that Germans have a pathological hatred of Jews?
That's what he did in his book Hitler's Willing Executioners. Isn't 
that hate literature? But there's not much fuss about that. The book 
is freely available in Canada, while books to which the pressure groups
object are not. They are stopped at the border.

Reverse the Goldhagen thing and consider what the reaction would be if
someone wrote a book claiming that all Jews are crooks. What it boils
down to of course is that one man's Hitler is another man's Hemingway.

It's now over half a century since the war ended but from what see on TV
and you get in the media you might think it ended two weeks ago. 
As it happens, I know a lot more about Nazis than most of my critics do.
I was a prisoner of war in Germany until I escaped. I saw Bergen Belsen
concentration camp on the way up through Germany in 1945 after I had
rejoined the forces, and for some years after the war I was a Political
Intelligence Officer working on the de-Nazification of Germany. In
short,I have seen a lot of real Nazis, not just the ersatz types of 
which Sol Littman and that Communist academic David Lethbridge of 
Salmon Arm are so oncerned about.

In Lethbridge's case, at least, he seems to be quite UNconcerned about
the many more millions who died under communism. I might also say that
even if I was wrong, and I wasn't, in a democracy we are supposed to
have
the right to be wrong. Or is that now also out of fashion, with a
Ministry
of Truth headed by Littman and Co.? If so, then Oliver would have to be
the
Hate Capital of Canada and I would have to be an agent for
neo-Nazis,which
is what he called me on television. And speaking of television, it's
one thing to denounce people from a distance and quite another to face
them in debate. I debated free speech for an hour with Littman on CBC
Newsworld and in the viewer poll that was taken 73% voted for me and for
free speech.

As for that rights tribunal I faced, even a carefully selected
adjudicator had to dismiss the case. No hate here, as the North Shore 
News headline put it. And why did she throw out the complaint? Not, in 
my opinion, because she would not have liked to find me guilty, but 
because she knew that if the case had gone to court the complaint would 
have been found to be unconstitutional. Why? Because the B.C. Human
Rights
Code is a Heresy Act, pure and simple. A Heresy Act, which is one reason 
why I am here today, Mr. Attorney General Ujjal Dosanjh. Here are the 
facts: Under that law, truth is no defence; fair comment is not a
defence,
as it is with libel and slander; publication in the public
interest is not a defence, innocent intent is not a defence, and even
work done for scientific purposes is not a defence. 

Let me repeat what the lawyer for the B.C. Press Council said: this is a
law that attempts to stifle speech that is not criminal. That's where
we're at in B.C.

On top of all that the government itself can make its own complaints to
its own Human Rights Commission even when no complaint has been entered
by a third party. So they can get you going and coming even if no-one
else
wants to. Talk about Big Brother and George Orwell's 1984! Fortunately,
we still have courts in this country that can strike down the acts of 
these would-be dictators. In 1938 the Alberta Press Act was struck down,
just as the false news law was later. But the intent of the politicians 
who pass such laws is the same as it is in the dictatorships. 

But while the courts cogitate, speech in Canada is not free at all. It
comes at a price, which is why I no longer sing the national anthem. We
are not the True North Strong and Free. When we revert to being strong
and free I'll start singing again. In my case the defence of a free 
press has cost the North Shore News well over $200,000. Others, like 
Mr.Fromm,have been hounded from their jobs. But there is a bright side
to this. In the case of the North Shore News the public has subscribed 
nearly $150,000 to its defence fund, which shows that you can't fool 
all the people all the time.

It's not over, though. A man describing himself in his complaint as "a
Jewish person" - Harry Abrams, the founder of B'Nai Brith in Victoria -
has launched another action against me with those rights experts over
there who are led by that leather-clad lesbian, Mary Woo Sims, the chief
commissioner. He complains about six columns, including the Hollywood
propaganda column that was dismissed in the first tribunal. Double
jeopardy? What's that? Let's have a rematch, they say. 

Instead of waiting for handouts from Littman and Lethbridge about white
supremacists and other bogeymen, the media should take the trouble to
examine what's going on. Lethbridge and other free speech artists
screamed that this meeting should be stopped. So it was. Only meetings 
of which he approved would be allowed. He's a fascist of the Left. Yet 
the media quote him as if he were an oracle. 

If they did take a look at things, the media would find a firm link
between the politically correct of the militant left and government, who
are often one and the same, as in B.C. They would find that Lethbridge
was a key speaker at, and organizer of, the pro-violence Anti-Racist 
Action Trotskyite mob in Toronto that has been barred from school 
grounds.They would find that Alan Dutton the big anti-racist in B.C. 
was instrumental in getting grants for the ARA from Toronto Metro 
Council. He himself has received hundreds of thousand of dollars in 
grants from government, which finances the anti-freedom movement. . 
They would also find that hotels have been bullied - terrorized might
be a more appropriate term - into not renting premises to groups of 
whom the Lethbridges and the Duttons disapprove.That happened in 
Surrey a couple of years ago when the late Pat Burns of radio fame 
was to have been the keynote speaker and I was to have spoken on Bill 
33, which has become B.C.'s Heresy Act. They would find that no less 
a person than the Attorney General of this province approved of what 
they were doing. They would find that the Duttons and Letbridges
act as advisers to the Attonery General. They would find that the
Alberta Human Rights Commission told a hotel in Edmonton not to give
space to a group that planned to discuss the Canadian Constitution.
They would also find that attempts have been made by the same people
to deny groups space in public libraries. The same Harry Abrams I 
mentioned a minute ago is a leader in that endeavor. He has asked the 
National Library Association to do that, using the trigger word "hate 
groups". But so far the libraries have refused to be panicked. And if
the media are too lazy to seek all that out by themselves, I can help 
them. Yes, that's the kind of stuff you should be doing, Oliver
Chronicle,
Penticton Herald, Globe and Mail, Vancouver Sun, CBC and all the rest of
you. You don't do it, but I can tell you again this: I'm old enough to 
have seen all this happen before.

What's going on is really no different in spirit from what the
Brownshirts got up to in Nazi Germany. In Nazi Germany, it was enough 
to shout Jew, Communist or Socialist. Today in Canada it's enough to 
shout white supremacist, neo-Nazi, and anti-Semite. The ideologies are
different but the spirit is the same. A word or two about the Internet.
The Internet is seen by the Littmans as a threat. How dreadful that 
people can actually send out messages to the world without their having 
to go through the filter of a press dominated by the poltivally correct.
So - kill the Internet, and if the Internet can’t be killed then ruin 
anyone, like Mr. Klatt, who doesn't take orders and won't act as a
censor.
I should point out here that I have seen nothing of what the Littmans
and
Co are bitching about, nor have most of the media who echo what Littman 
says. I had never even heard of the Charlemagne Hammerheads before this 
affair blew up and I have never had lunch with a skinhead, ans what they
are supposed to be saying is certainly not my cup of tea.But I'll tell
you
something. I can be my own censor, thanks very much. I don't need
Littman's 
help.The same option is open to all Internet users. But Littman can't
trust
the public. He wants to treat people like children, while yelling about 
discrimination. To which I say, physician, heal thyself. 

Yes, the idea is to kill the Internet, or at least the controversial
voices on it that Littman doesn't like. And of course there are nasty
voices on it, although I've never bothered to tune in to them. But don't
be fooled by the idea that Littman's censorship would end with stopping
them. Let me give you an example of what I mean. When the Barrett
government got going on its human rights program in the early 1970s we
were told that all they wanted to do was to ensure fair play in hiring
and housing. But these things begin small and end large, and today human
rights commissions in this country are a menace to human rights. Rights
have become wrongs, and in today in B.C. the human rights gang is a
direct threat to freedom of the press. 

It is also said that you can learn how to make bombs on the Internet. So
you can. But you can also learn how to make bombs by other means. The
left-wing Squamish Five didn't need any Internet to learn how to make
and explode bombs in the 1980s, and people intent on making bombs today
don't need the Internet either.

When Winston Churchill lost the British election in 1945, he said,
"Trust the people." I follow that precept and it's my hope that in 
spite of the demonization of dissidents that ‘s going on now, 
Canadians will hold steady. We've been through crazy times before
and survived, and I'm here today in the expectation that we'll survive
this one. 

Meanwhile, Mayor Larson should put on her thinking cap instead of
pandering to the Littmans and giving way to bullies. Then there's
councillor Terry Shafer. He has said that the matter of this meeting is
a tough issue, particularly when the veterans are celebrating the 
creation of Canadian Legion here. They fought, he said so as to allow 
us the privilege of expressing our opinions, NO MATTER HOW AWFUL 
THOSE OPINIONS MAY BE.

What do you know about those opinions, councillor? Have you heard or
read any of them or are you taking the time from Littman and Lethbridge?
And what about your local Liberal MLA, Bill Barisoff? Has he had
anything
critical to say about the NDP's Heresy Law? If he has I must have been
snoozing. But he's reported as telling Litttman he'd be happy to work
with him to ensure that hate literature that violates the Criminal Code
does not appear anywhere in Canada. Does he take Littman's word for what
hate literature is? If you ask me, he's a bit like the Red Queen in
Alice
in Wonderland who said, sentence first, trial later. 

I'll leave you with a couple of other thoughts. A columnist said in
print last year that I give free speech a bad name. I replied by
pointing
out that free speech has always had a bad name. Free speech had a bad
name
when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of Wittingen
cathedral. It had a bad name when John Tyndale was burned at the stake
for translating the Bible into English. It had a bad name when John
Milton
wrote that truth and falsehood should grapple freely. It had a bad name
when the Ayatolla in Iran proclaimed a death sentence on Salman Rushdie,
and when the communists were up before the un-American Activities
Committee. It had a bad name two thousand years ago, when a man called
Jesus was nailed to the cross. One might almost say that free speech has
NEVER had a GOOD name, and thanks to the Littmans and the Lethbridges
and others like them free speech certainly has a bad name today. As I
mentioned earlier, if you are for free speech you are a neo-Nazi, a
crypto-Nazi, a white supremacist, or an anti-Semite. 

This sort of thing is not confined to Canada. It exists right across the
Western world. In Australia, Terry Lane, a well-known print and radio
commentator got into trouble with the local Littmans and wrote a letter
to the Australian Jewish News in 1992 in which he stated the following:

"The Zionist lobby in this country is malicious, implacable, mendacious
and dangerous. What's more, once the expression anti-Semitism hits the
air, or, heaven forfend, the sacred six million is uttered...we are
thrown to the jackals. I surrender. To the Zionists I say, you win. 
To the Palestinians, forgive my cowardice." 

In 1938, the Supreme Court of Canada had this to say when it struck down
the Alberta Press Act:

"Freedom of discussion is essential to enlighten public opinion in a
democratic state. It cannot be curtailed without affecting the right of
people to be informed, independent of government, concerning matters of
public interest. There must be untrammelled publication of news and
opinion." UNTRAMMELLED! It stated further that if the Social Credit law
were allowed to stand, the Socred doctrine would become a kind of
religious dogma that the people would buck at their peril. 

If the Littmans and other critics have their way, their dogmas would
become a kind of religion, too, that we would buck at our peril, and we
are already are buckinjg at our peril. So I say to hell with them, and
you can quote me. How about it, Mayor Larson and others who are running
for cover? How about it, Bill Barisoff? I can tell you where you should
stand. You should be standing right here with the rest of us, not
passing
by on the other side of the street. I will conclude by saying that I am 
77 years of age, that I defended freedom in the 1940s when Hitler was on
the loose, in the 1950s when McCarthy was on the loose, in the 1970s
when
the federal hate laws were passed, in the 1990s when those idiots in 
Victoria passed their misnamed Human Rights Act, and that I shall go on 
defending freedom until the day I die.

Thank you.

The people, you BOY are pulling your foreskin back for them. 

The following is the text of the speech made by the veteran journalist
Doug Collins after the forced cancellation of a free speech conference
in Oliver, British Columbia, slated for March 21, 1998, at Oliver's 
city hall. It is published here as a censorship-busting exercise in free
speech. 

=-=-=-=-=

Doug Collins:

These are extraordinary times in Canada. Dangerous ones, too. The attack
on freedom of speech is massive. It has been going on for many years,
beginning in 1971 when the federal hate laws were passed. I was covering
parliament at the time and saw it happen at first hand. Since then
situation has grown progressively worse. It has now reached the stage
where under the B.C. Human Rights Code a person could be taken before a
human rights tribunal for telling a Newfie joke. It just depends on
whether Ujjal Dosanjh and the provincial government want to go after
him; in other words, whether he is a sanctioned target - sanctioned by
the politically correct and pressure groups like Sol Littman's Simon
Wiesenthal Centre.

It's disappointing that the establishment media are suckers for
propaganda
put out by those groups. All that's needed for them to press the panic
button and produce scare headlines is for the usual trigger words to be
used - neo-Nazi, white supremacist, racist, anti-Semitic. The issues are
rarely debated. So they resort to calling people names. Meanwhile, real
reporting seems to be out of fashion, taking handouts is very much in
fashion. The stories in the Okanagan media have been good examples of
that, as was Thursday's scare story in the Globe & Mail. Call it the
spirit of the times. Forty years ago we saw another spirit of the times.
It was called McCarthyism. Anyone who wanted medicare could be demonized
and seen as a Communist. I lived through those times, too, but many of
today's media weren't around then. So let's forgive them, for they know
not what they do. But it's time some of them grew up.

In the United States none of the anti-free speech laws that decorate the
landscape in Canada would get to first base. They have a Constitution
that protects free expression. We don't. Our Charter of Rights and 
Freedoms is a leaky vessel, which is why teachers and others can be 
fired from their jobs for holding the wrong views. In this country, 
too, an author like David Irving can be arrested while making a dinner
speech about free speech, put into handcuffs, and deported on an 
immigration pretext - while many killers and crooks of all kinds are 
allowed to remain here and while Asian gangs roam Vancouver on drive-by
shootings. That's something else the people of Oliver might think about
when they sign petitions asking the Attorney General in effect to go 
after Mr. Klatt for running an Internet service. But once again, let's
not blame them. They are victims of a massive propaganda campaign. 
That's what I was getting at when I wrote that famous or infamous 
column on Hollywood Propaganda. 

My interest in freedom of speech began a long time ago. When Ernst
Zundel was prosecuted for "spreading false news" in 1985 I appeared 
for the defence. I had never heard of the guy but it was
incomprehensible
to me that a man could be prosecuted for spreading false news. As I told
the court, Santa Claus spreads false news, the weatherman spreads false
news,and any reporter who has ever reported what a politician has had 
to say is probably spreading false news. Today's media are particularly 
good at spreading false news. The Globe & Mail story about this meeting 
that appeared on Thursday was liberally sprinkled with false news, as 
Oliver has good reason to know. In the Zundel case, of course, the 
Supreme Court of Canada agreed with me in the end and the false news law
was nixed.Littman can count himself lucky. 

But the anti-free speech experts were not discouraged. They invented
human rights commissions.The B.C. Human Rights Act, or Code, as it's 
called now,is a disgrace to the province and to the country. The 
Littmans think it's wonderful, of course, but they would, wouldn't 
they!.

I was charged under that Code. The Canadian Jewish Congress laid a
complaint against me after I'd written a column headed "Hollywood
Propaganda" in which I said that the six million holocaust figure was
nonsense, that the Jewish influence in Hollywood was predominant, and
that the move Schindler's List should have been called Swindler's List.
I said that because the man's own wife denounced him as a swindler, 
and she should know. As for who runs Hollywood, only last Sunday a 
two-hour program was shown on network TV called "Hollywoodism," which
confirmed my view in spades. I also stated in the column that I was 
tired of hate literature in the form of films, and that Schindler's 
List had to be the 555th. movie on the same subject. Think about 
that, when the Littmans and the Canadian Jewish Congress fulminate 
about hate literature. How would you feel if you were a German born 
long after Hitler was dead and you were reminded every day that your
grandfather did the wrong thing? Ask yourselves how you would feel if
you were a young German, being told by Daniel Goldhagen, a Jewish 
professor in New York, that Germans have a pathological hatred of Jews?
That's what he did in his book Hitler's Willing Executioners. Isn't 
that hate literature? But there's not much fuss about that. The book 
is freely available in Canada, while books to which the pressure groups
object are not. They are stopped at the border.

Reverse the Goldhagen thing and consider what the reaction would be if
someone wrote a book claiming that all Jews are crooks. What it boils
down to of course is that one man's Hitler is another man's Hemingway.

It's now over half a century since the war ended but from what see on TV
and you get in the media you might think it ended two weeks ago. 
As it happens, I know a lot more about Nazis than most of my critics do.
I was a prisoner of war in Germany until I escaped. I saw Bergen Belsen
concentration camp on the way up through Germany in 1945 after I had
rejoined the forces, and for some years after the war I was a Political
Intelligence Officer working on the de-Nazification of Germany. In
short,I have seen a lot of real Nazis, not just the ersatz types of 
which Sol Littman and that Communist academic David Lethbridge of 
Salmon Arm are so oncerned about.

In Lethbridge's case, at least, he seems to be quite UNconcerned about
the many more millions who died under communism. I might also say that
even if I was wrong, and I wasn't, in a democracy we are supposed to
have
the right to be wrong. Or is that now also out of fashion, with a
Ministry
of Truth headed by Littman and Co.? If so, then Oliver would have to be
the
Hate Capital of Canada and I would have to be an agent for
neo-Nazis,which
is what he called me on television. And speaking of television, it's
one thing to denounce people from a distance and quite another to face
them in debate. I debated free speech for an hour with Littman on CBC
Newsworld and in the viewer poll that was taken 73% voted for me and for
free speech.

As for that rights tribunal I faced, even a carefully selected
adjudicator had to dismiss the case. No hate here, as the North Shore 
News headline put it. And why did she throw out the complaint? Not, in 
my opinion, because she would not have liked to find me guilty, but 
because she knew that if the case had gone to court the complaint would 
have been found to be unconstitutional. Why? Because the B.C. Human
Rights
Code is a Heresy Act, pure and simple. A Heresy Act, which is one reason 
why I am here today, Mr. Attorney General Ujjal Dosanjh. Here are the 
facts: Under that law, truth is no defence; fair comment is not a
defence,
as it is with libel and slander; publication in the public
interest is not a defence, innocent intent is not a defence, and even
work done for scientific purposes is not a defence. 

Let me repeat what the lawyer for the B.C. Press Council said: this is a
law that attempts to stifle speech that is not criminal. That's where
we're at in B.C.

On top of all that the government itself can make its own complaints to
its own Human Rights Commission even when no complaint has been entered
by a third party. So they can get you going and coming even if no-one
else

"Freedom of discussion is essential to enlighten public opinion in a
democratic state. It cannot be curtailed without affecting the right of
people to be informed, independent of government, concerning matters of
public interest. There must be untrammelled publication of news and
opinion." UNTRAMMELLED! It stated further that if the Social Credit law
were allowed to stand, the Socred doctrine would become a kind of
religious dogma that the people would buck at their peril. 

If the Littmans and other critics have their way, their dogmas would
become a kind of religion, too, that we would buck at our peril, and we
are already are buckinjg at our peril. So I say to hell with them, and
you can quote me. How about it, Mayor Larson and others who are running
for cover? How about it, Bill Barisoff? I can tell you where you should
stand. You should be standing right here with the rest of us, not
passing
by on the other side of the street. I will conclude by saying that I am 
77 years of age, that I defended freedom in the 1940s when Hitler was on
the loose, in the 1950s when McCarthy was on the loose, in the 1970s
when
the federal hate laws were passed, in the 1990s when those idiots in 
Victoria passed their misnamed Human Rights Act, and that I shall go on 
defending freedom until the day I die.

Thank you.

Well John. As a child I do remember being with my parents in a city
park. Seeing many older people walking around in the park having the
star of David sewn to their clothing to identify them As Jews. I ask my
parents what that is all about? The said, it is forbidden to talk
to this people. By 1941 all this people were not to be seen in this park
anymore.

In 1941 I seen Jewish men loaded up in an open truck and moved away. I
ask my father what this is all about and he said to me do not talk to
this soldiers.

Well what happen after that with this people I can only assume.

Time have changed in the last 20 Years.
Perhaps I can explain it by an example. Being an newcomer in the
fifties, me and my brother were fair game for everybody who had a axe to
grind against the Germans. When Idi Amin, I am not sure that his name is
right booted the East Indians out of his country Things changed. For
some time I did feel that I am in some kind of vacuum and could not find
the reason why?

And than I seen the reason why. This East Indians were now the target.
Up to today this East Indians are now abused by the same riffraff. I can
tell you that I will stop anybody who is slandering this people in my
present.

I do not blame him fighting off racists of all kind but what he is doing
with people he does not agree with is a different story. He is building 
up a scenario to prove that everybody who does not agree with him must
be a liar or a holocaust denier.

Ken has to realize that there appears to be a connection in between him
and the  Jewish groups. Instead of him saying, Yes I am getting
materials from this group, he is acting as if he is a one man show.

In regard to his anti censorship position? How can He claim to be anti
censorship when in all his actions he is trying to put people off the
air?

Collins in some or all of his statements about immigrants? It sure looks
that way. He has the ability to go from one end of the spectrum to the 
other. When I look at his articles there are some points that I do not 
agree with but this does not stop me to give him point to where he is 
right and that is sensorship. 

I went to the library yesterday to look for this book but it is out.

Ken has to realize that he is barking up the wrong tree when he thinks
to play around with me. With all his manipulation he doing a disservice
to his cause and as long he carries on like this I will post Collins
speech till this speech will come out of his ears.

Now you are telling me what your real name is. Mister Ken Claptrap. 
The mouth in motion man of the year. 


The following is the text of the speech made by the veteran journalist
Doug Collins after the forced cancellation of a free speech conference
in Oliver, British Columbia, slated for March 21, 1998, at Oliver's 
city hall. It is published here as a censorship-busting exercise in free
speech. 

=-=-=-=-=

Doug Collins:

These are extraordinary times in Canada. Dangerous ones, too. The attack
on freedom of speech is massive. It has been going on for many years,
beginning in 1971 when the federal hate laws were passed. I was covering
parliament at the time and saw it happen at first hand. Since then
situation has grown progressively worse. It has now reached the stage
where under the B.C. Human Rights Code a person could be taken before a
human rights tribunal for telling a Newfie joke. It just depends on
whether Ujjal Dosanjh and the provincial government want to go after
him; in other words, whether he is a sanctioned target - sanctioned by
the politically correct and pressure groups like Sol Littman's Simon
Wiesenthal Centre.

It's disappointing that the establishment media are suckers for
propaganda
put out by those groups. All that's needed for them to press the panic
button and produce scare headlines is for the usual trigger words to be
used - neo-Nazi, white supremacist, racist, anti-Semitic. The issues are
rarely debated. So they resort to calling people names. Meanwhile, real
reporting seems to be out of fashion, taking handouts is very much in
fashion. The stories in the Okanagan media have been good examples of
that, as was Thursday's scare story in the Globe & Mail. Call it the
spirit of the times. Forty years ago we saw another spirit of the times.
It was called McCarthyism. Anyone who wanted medicare could be demonized
and seen as a Communist. I lived through those times, too, but many of
today's media weren't around then. So let's forgive them, for they know
not what they do. But it's time some of them grew up.

In the United States none of the anti-free speech laws that decorate the
landscape in Canada would get to first base. They have a Constitution
that protects free expression. We don't. Our Charter of Rights and 
Freedoms is a leaky vessel, which is why teachers and others can be 
fired from their jobs for holding the wrong views. In this country, 
too, an author like David Irving can be arrested while making a dinner
speech about free speech, put into handcuffs, and deported on an 
immigration pretext - while many killers and crooks of all kinds are 
allowed to remain here and while Asian gangs roam Vancouver on drive-by
shootings. That's something else the people of Oliver might think about
when they sign petitions asking the Attorney General in effect to go 
after Mr. Klatt for running an Internet service. But once again, let's
not blame them. They are victims of a massive propaganda campaign. 
That's what I was getting at when I wrote that famous or infamous 
column on Hollywood Propaganda. 

My interest in freedom of speech began a long time ago. When Ernst
Zundel was prosecuted for "spreading false news" in 1985 I appeared 
for the defence. I had never heard of the guy but it was
incomprehensible
to me that a man could be prosecuted for spreading false news. As I told
the court, Santa Claus spreads false news, the weatherman spreads false
news,and any reporter who has ever reported what a politician has had 
to say is probably spreading false news. Today's media are particularly 
good at spreading false news. The Globe & Mail story about this meeting 
that appeared on Thursday was liberally sprinkled with false news, as 
Oliver has good reason to know. In the Zundel case, of course, the 
Supreme Court of Canada agreed with me in the end and the false news law
was nixed.Littman can count himself lucky. 

But the anti-free speech experts were not discouraged. They invented
human rights commissions.The B.C. Human Rights Act, or Code, as it's 
called now,is a disgrace to the province and to the country. The 
Littmans think it's wonderful, of course, but they would, wouldn't 
they!.

I was charged under that Code. The Canadian Jewish Congress laid a
complaint against me after I'd written a column headed "Hollywood
Propaganda" in which I said that the six million holocaust figure was
nonsense, that the Jewish influence in Hollywood was predominant, and
that the move Schindler's List should have been called Swindler's List.
I said that because the man's own wife denounced him as a swindler, 
and she should know. As for who runs Hollywood, only last Sunday a 
two-hour program was shown on network TV called "Hollywoodism," which
confirmed my view in spades. I also stated in the column that I was 
tired of hate literature in the form of films, and that Schindler's 
List had to be the 555th. movie on the same subject. Think about 
that, when the Littmans and the Canadian Jewish Congress fulminate 
about hate literature. How would you feel if you were a German born 
long after Hitler was dead and you were reminded every day that your
grandfather did the wrong thing? Ask yourselves how you would feel if
you were a young German, being told by Daniel Goldhagen, a Jewish 
professor in New York, that Germans have a pathological hatred of Jews?
That's what he did in his book Hitler's Willing Executioners. Isn't 
that hate literature? But there's not much fuss about that. The book 
is freely available in Canada, while books to which the pressure groups
object are not. They are stopped at the border.

Reverse the Goldhagen thing and consider what the reaction would be if
someone wrote a book claiming that all Jews are crooks. What it boils
down to of course is that one man's Hitler is another man's Hemingway.

It's now over half a century since the war ended but from what see on TV
and you get in the media you might think it ended two weeks ago. 
As it happens, I know a lot more about Nazis than most of my critics do.
I was a prisoner of war in Germany until I escaped. I saw Bergen Belsen
concentration camp on the way up through Germany in 1945 after I had
rejoined the forces, and for some years after the war I was a Political
Intelligence Officer working on the de-Nazification of Germany. In
short,I have seen a lot of real Nazis, not just the ersatz types of 
which Sol Littman and that Communist academic David Lethbridge of 
Salmon Arm are so oncerned about.

In Lethbridge's case, at least, he seems to be quite UNconcerned about
the many more millions who died under communism. I might also say that
even if I was wrong, and I wasn't, in a democracy we are supposed to
have
the right to be wrong. Or is that now also out of fashion, with a
Ministry
of Truth headed by Littman and Co.? If so, then Oliver would have to be
the
Hate Capital of Canada and I would have to be an agent for
neo-Nazis,which
is what he called me on television. And speaking of television, it's
one thing to denounce people from a distance and quite another to face
them in debate. I debated free speech for an hour with Littman on CBC
Newsworld and in the viewer poll that was taken 73% voted for me and for
free speech.

As for that rights tribunal I faced, even a carefully selected
adjudicator had to dismiss the case. No hate here, as the North Shore 
News headline put it. And why did she throw out the complaint? Not, in 
my opinion, because she would not have liked to find me guilty, but 
because she knew that if the case had gone to court the complaint would 
have been found to be unconstitutional. Why? Because the B.C. Human
Rights
Code is a Heresy Act, pure and simple. A Heresy Act, which is one reason 
why I am here today, Mr. Attorney General Ujjal Dosanjh. Here are the 
facts: Under that law, truth is no defence; fair comment is not a
defence,
as it is with libel and slander; publication in the public
interest is not a defence, innocent intent is not a defence, and even
work done for scientific purposes is not a defence. 

Let me repeat what the lawyer for the B.C. Press Council said: this is a
law that attempts to stifle speech that is not criminal. That's where
we're at in B.C.

On top of all that the government itself can make its own complaints to
its own Human Rights Commission even when no complaint has been entered
by a third party. So they can get you going and coming even if no-one
else
wants to. Talk about Big Brother and George Orwell's 1984! Fortunately,
we still have courts in this country that can strike down the acts of 
these would-be dictators. In 1938 the Alberta Press Act was struck down,
just as the false news law was later. But the intent of the politicians 
who pass such laws is the same as it is in the dictatorships. 

But while the courts cogitate, speech in Canada is not free at all. It
comes at a price, which is why I no longer sing the national anthem. We
are not the True North Strong and Free. When we revert to being strong
and free I'll start singing again. In my case the defence of a free 
press has cost the North Shore News well over $200,000. Others, like 
Mr.Fromm,have been hounded from their jobs. But there is a bright side
to this. In the case of the North Shore News the public has subscribed 
nearly $150,000 to its defence fund, which shows that you can't fool 
all the people all the time.

It's not over, though. A man describing himself in his complaint as "a
Jewish person" - Harry Abrams, the founder of B'Nai Brith in Victoria -
has launched another action against me with those rights experts over
there who are led by that leather-clad lesbian, Mary Woo Sims, the chief
commissioner. He complains about six columns, including the Hollywood
propaganda column that was dismissed in the first tribunal. Double
jeopardy? What's that? Let's have a rematch, they say. 

Instead of waiting for handouts from Littman and Lethbridge about white
supremacists and other bogeymen, the media should take the trouble to
examine what's going on. Lethbridge and other free speech artists
screamed that this meeting should be stopped. So it was. Only meetings 
of which he approved would be allowed. He's a fascist of the Left. Yet 
the media quote him as if he were an oracle. 

If they did take a look at things, the media would find a firm link
between the politically correct of the militant left and government, who
are often one and the same, as in B.C. They would find that Lethbridge
was a key speaker at, and organizer of, the pro-violence Anti-Racist 
Action Trotskyite mob in Toronto that has been barred from school 
grounds.They would find that Alan Dutton the big anti-racist in B.C. 
was instrumental in getting grants for the ARA from Toronto Metro 
Council. He himself has received hundreds of thousand of dollars in 
grants from government, which finances the anti-freedom movement. . 
They would also find that hotels have been bullied - terrorized might
be a more appropriate term - into not renting premises to groups of 
whom the Lethbridges and the Duttons disapprove.That happened in 
Surrey a couple of years ago when the late Pat Burns of radio fame 
was to have been the keynote speaker and I was to have spoken on Bill 
33, which has become B.C.'s Heresy Act. They would find that no less 
a person than the Attorney General of this province approved of what 
they were doing. They would find that the Duttons and Letbridges
act as advisers to the Attonery General. They would find that the
Alberta Human Rights Commission told a hotel in Edmonton not to give
space to a group that planned to discuss the Canadian Constitution.
They would also find that attempts have been made by the same people
to deny groups space in public libraries. The same Harry Abrams I 
mentioned a minute ago is a leader in that endeavor. He has asked the 
National Library Association to do that, using the trigger word "hate 
groups". But so far the libraries have refused to be panicked. And if
the media are too lazy to seek all that out by themselves, I can help 
them. Yes, that's the kind of stuff you should be doing, Oliver
Chronicle,
Penticton Herald, Globe and Mail, Vancouver Sun, CBC and all the rest of
you. You don't do it, but I can tell you again this: I'm old enough to 
have seen all this happen before.

What's going on is really no different in spirit from what the
Brownshirts got up to in Nazi Germany. In Nazi Germany, it was enough 
to shout Jew, Communist or Socialist. Today in Canada it's enough to 
shout white supremacist, neo-Nazi, and anti-Semite. The ideologies are
different but the spirit is the same. A word or two about the Internet.
The Internet is seen by the Littmans as a threat. How dreadful that 
people can actually send out messages to the world without their having 
to go through the filter of a press dominated by the poltivally correct.
So - kill the Internet, and if the Internet can’t be killed then ruin 
anyone, like Mr. Klatt, who doesn't take orders and won't act as a
censor.
I should point out here that I have seen nothing of what the Littmans
and
Co are bitching about, nor have most of the media who echo what Littman 
says. I had never even heard of the Charlemagne Hammerheads before this 
affair blew up and I have never had lunch with a skinhead, ans what they
are supposed to be saying is certainly not my cup of tea.But I'll tell
you
something. I can be my own censor, thanks very much. I don't need
Littman's 
help.The same option is open to all Internet users. But Littman can't
trust
the public. He wants to treat people like children, while yelling about 
discrimination. To which I say, physician, heal thyself. 

Yes, the idea is to kill the Internet, or at least the controversial
voices on it that Littman doesn't like. And of course there are nasty
voices on it, although I've never bothered to tune in to them. But don't
be fooled by the idea that Littman's censorship would end with stopping
them. Let me give you an example of what I mean. When the Barrett
government got going on its human rights program in the early 1970s we
were told that all they wanted to do was to ensure fair play in hiring
and housing. But these things begin small and end large, and today human
rights commissions in this country are a menace to human rights. Rights
have become wrongs, and in today in B.C. the human rights gang is a
direct threat to freedom of the press. 

It is also said that you can learn how to make bombs on the Internet. So
you can. But you can also learn how to make bombs by other means. The
left-wing Squamish Five didn't need any Internet to learn how to make
and explode bombs in the 1980s, and people intent on making bombs today
don't need the Internet either.

When Winston Churchill lost the British election in 1945, he said,
"Trust the people." I follow that precept and it's my hope that in 
spite of the demonization of dissidents that ‘s going on now, 
Canadians will hold steady. We've been through crazy times before
and survived, and I'm here today in the expectation that we'll survive
this one. 

Meanwhile, Mayor Larson should put on her thinking cap instead of
pandering to the Littmans and giving way to bullies. Then there's
councillor Terry Shafer. He has said that the matter of this meeting is
a tough issue, particularly when the veterans are celebrating the 
creation of Canadian Legion here. They fought, he said so as to allow 
us the privilege of expressing our opinions, NO MATTER HOW AWFUL 
THOSE OPINIONS MAY BE.

What do you know about those opinions, councillor? Have you heard or
read any of them or are you taking the time from Littman and Lethbridge?
And what about your local Liberal MLA, Bill Barisoff? Has he had
anything
critical to say about the NDP's Heresy Law? If he has I must have been
snoozing. But he's reported as telling Litttman he'd be happy to work
with him to ensure that hate literature that violates the Criminal Code
does not appear anywhere in Canada. Does he take Littman's word for what
hate literature is? If you ask me, he's a bit like the Red Queen in
Alice
in Wonderland who said, sentence first, trial later. 

I'll leave you with a couple of other thoughts. A columnist said in
print last year that I give free speech a bad name. I replied by
pointing
out that free speech has always had a bad name. Free speech had a bad
name
when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of Wittingen
cathedral. It had a bad name when John Tyndale was burned at the stake
for translating the Bible into English. It had a bad name when John
Milton
wrote that truth and falsehood should grapple freely. It had a bad name
when the Ayatolla in Iran proclaimed a death sentence on Salman Rushdie,
and when the communists were up before the un-American Activities
Committee. It had a bad name two thousand years ago, when a man called
Jesus was nailed to the cross. One might almost say that free speech has
NEVER had a GOOD name, and thanks to the Littmans and the Lethbridges
and others like them free speech certainly has a bad name today. As I
mentioned earlier, if you are for free speech you are a neo-Nazi, a
crypto-Nazi, a white supremacist, or an anti-Semite. 

This sort of thing is not confined to Canada. It exists right across the
Western world. In Australia, Terry Lane, a well-known print and radio
commentator got into trouble with the local Littmans and wrote a letter
to the Australian Jewish News in 1992 in which he stated the following:

"The Zionist lobby in this country is malicious, implacable, mendacious
and dangerous. What's more, once the expression anti-Semitism hits the
air, or, heaven forfend, the sacred six million is uttered...we are
thrown to the jackals. I surrender. To the Zionists I say, you win. 
To the Palestinians, forgive my cowardice." 

In 1938, the Supreme Court of Canada had this to say when it struck down
the Alberta Press Act:

"Freedom of discussion is essential to enlighten public opinion in a
democratic state. It cannot be curtailed without affecting the right of
people to be informed, independent of government, concerning matters of
public interest. There must be untrammelled publication of news and
opinion." UNTRAMMELLED! It stated further that if the Social Credit law
were allowed to stand, the Socred doctrine would become a kind of
religious dogma that the people would buck at their peril. 

If the Littmans and other critics have their way, their dogmas would
become a kind of religion, too, that we would buck at our peril, and we
are already are buckinjg at our peril. So I say to hell with them, and
you can quote me. How about it, Mayor Larson and others who are running
for cover? How about it, Bill Barisoff? I can tell you where you should
stand. You should be standing right here with the rest of us, not
passing
by on the other side of the street. I will conclude by saying that I am 
77 years of age, that I defended freedom in the 1940s when Hitler was on
the loose, in the 1950s when McCarthy was on the loose, in the 1970s

What a waste of energy. Reminds me of 1945 when we said with a grin on
our face: : Und wir haben doch Gesiegt" (We still did win)

Only difference is. we did know that it was a sad situation. Perhaps you
could help people in need with your talent

Children use the name liar as often as you do one of the reason is that
the do not no what the other kid’s are talking about or the do no feel
the lost the battle. You said that I was lying but when I asked for the
EXACT paragraph and posting where I said what You never came up with the
answer. One of the reason probably you will not do this is because you
are wrong. I can assure you that I have all of my postings on my drive.

Looks to me that you are trying hard to make real friend all of your
life? There is one more difference with me. I have no reverse gear and
if this means to go to jail at public cost, that what I will do. I can
tell you this would be a entertainment for me.

Vancouver Province March 10, 1998
Racism on Net no big deal: Educator.

Research shows there’s been little interest in cyberspace sites that
promote hatred when compared with other sites. Ken McVay, director of
the Nizkor Project, said at a symposium on how to combat Internet hate 
sides.

In regard of you censoring the net? I said many time that your
association with others leads me to believe that is what you people are
after. Now you may say that this is not your intention and you say that
you are for free speech. This reminds  me of Kin Hubbard saying:   The’
feller that agrees with every’ thing you say is either a fool or he is
ready to skin you".

Well I am talking about you. Your style leads me to believe that many
people feel harassed by you. What would be the end results of this. Like
someone told me by e-mail one time. He would like very much to
participate in any discussion but as soon he likes to say some thing, he
is being shouted down because he has a different view than the other
guys. That is no free discussion at all put dictatorship.

The best example is here. If I would not be head strong, this discussion
would have come to an end a long time ago. For instance, when I posted
the first time, a mister John  Angus did like a clarification.

See note below. Sunday 3, May 1998 10:09:19
=============

This has been done already. Using words like THE Germans or THEY. Now a
Mister Daniel Goldhagen, Jewish professor in New York say’s that all
German have a pathological hatred of Jews and wrote a book about this
"Willing Executioners. You think this book will be banned in Canada for
promoting hatred? What would the reaction be if he wrote ALL JEWS ARE
CROOKS? One prominent Jew said; "The world should never stop to hate
Germans." In earlier times Christians said: The Jews killed Jesus.
=======================

In Sunday 3, May 1998 19:09:46 You wanted so clarification.

I have Dr. Goldhagen's book before me. Please tell me which page
includes the statement that "all Germans have a pathological hatred of
Jews," Mr. Knoll.

(I will save you some time, Mr. Knoll. No such statement will be found
in the book, but don't let that stop you from misquoting the
author...)
============
On Sunday May 3, 1998 23:13:49 I gave you the information You wanted but
this was not good enough because you had other plans how to exploit this
situation.
========

A Mister Oerest Slepokura quotet A Mister Doug Collins speech from March
21, 1998.
In there and this are the words:

How would you feel if you were a German born long after Hitler was dead
and you were reminded every day that your grandfather did the wrong
thing? Ask yourselves how you would feel if you were a young German,
being told by Daniel Goldhagen, a Jewish professor in New York, that
Germans have a pathalogigal hatred of Jews?  That’s what he did in his
book "Hitler’s Willing Executioners". But there’s not much fuss about
that.
==== =====
Clearly when you look at my posting from Sunday 3, May 1998 10:09:19
You can see that this reference was to the Letter by Mister Collins.
Wherever Mister Collins was lying or not should have never been an issue
in the first place. The issue should have been that a perception was
there and this was my whole point in the first place.

There is one thing you forget. I can play silly a lot better than you

to stop.

You asked me many time who do I mean with you. I said many times that I
was revering to you as you people. The next time you asked what do I
mean by your people. Again I said you must have people backing you up. 
You said that you have communication only with others.

My Posting
=====================================================================
Remember what John F Kennedy said about some Germans. "Berliners are
like eggs. When you boil them, they get  hard. If you boil them longer,
the get harder."
=======================================================================
I am from Nürnberg even when you call me a Berliner because I gave an
example about boiling eggs. Were you lying?? No I am lying? Right

It is good you brought this topic up. You see, if the laws established
at the Nürnberg trial would have been enforced equally over the years,
especially in regard to Vietnam and other places than it would have been
fair It is only when trouble in the former Yugoslavia started that there
is some action taken. Nürnberg trials were nothing more than show trials
plain and simple. To say different, I would be lying again. Ups another
lie again.

I am not sure that you can use this word about not making friend. I
forgot to register this quote because I did consider this to be mine and
I had it before.

How do I wish to restrict free speech? More about free speech later.
=======================================================================
Well I am talking about you. Your style leads me to believe that many
people feel harassed by you. What would be the end results of this. Like
someone told me by e-mail one time. He would like very much to
participate in any discussion but as soon he likes to say some thing, he
is being shouted down because he has a different view than the other
guys. That is no free discussion at all put dictatorship.

Are you talking about the quote of Mister Collins in regard to
Goldhagen? Making sure that laws will be passed to make this ilegal?

The ISP would not be libel as a  "publisher" unless he was legally
advised that the law was being
broken, and then failed to co-operate.?

 This of course would not be censorship because you are against this?
Would you call it than? Getting it your way special?? Werner is
lying again.

Of course you are right when you say we have to have some laws and you
give a good example. The problem I am having that people like to have
laws, always to control others.
You see many people to give examples like you because that make sense.
However their objective is to control others and that is what it is all
about.

Ok should I say that you are the most respected person on this earth so
you can call me a liar again?

You may not realize this , but calling me a liar will solve absolutely
nothing. I was a salesman in the early fifties as a young man. I got
insults from customers, so did any other salesman. I complained about
this to my boss. He asked me if I sold anything? I said yes 67 thousand
DM worth of merchandise. He said: "What the hell are you worried about?
You sold 67.000.00 today and worry about a little thing like this.

Dan. You done something today what I did not expect from you. In saying
what you did by putting all politics aside, you shown to me and
hopefully others that you are a humane being. I have to congratulate you
for that. It is easy to judge others when we are not being put in a

What does the word seems rather strange mean to you? It is obvious that
I do not approve of any kind of censorship.

How can you contemn this man for asking a funny question? It would be
different if he is able to say what he wants but likes to censor
everybody else like you people do.

Perhaps he was denied the opportunity to represent his side on the
Internet. As a result of this, he may have said OK censor the others
too???

Vancouver Province Sunday March 29, 1998
Trio charged in connection with razor blades in mail.
Darren Nathan Barbarash age 28 and Rebecca Rubin age 23 are charged with
possession of explosive.

Police began a probe in 1995 after Toronto Holocaust denier Ernst Zundel
received a mouse trap rigged with razor blades in the mail.

Could it be that the purpose of your organization is to incite hatred
against people like Zundel

BTW. Why don’t you have a link to Zundels web side when you are so
interested about what Zundel is doing? Oh I got it; it is against the
law for him to spread his gospel?

Well perhaps the both are lying. But than again you ask me to take your
word and you could be lying too. Well I do not have the habit to accuse
people of lying because they the have a different opinion. Obviously it
is people like you who are interested to bring him down. It should be
your task to find out!

Does this now mean that news papers, radio, TV cannot be trusted? You
and cannot quote anything what is going on around us because it could
not be true? Amazing. 

Newspaper clipping in the Vancouver Province tells me that Collins won
his rights skirmish. It also says that his column was nasty but didn’t
violate the code.

It also say’s that the Canadian Jewish Congress filed a case and desist
order. Fact is that you people were trying to censor him because he was
talking about your holocaust industry.

It is the way it is done What you people are doing here is constantly
crying to get things your way. I f you were a child in a family who need
constant attention, I would not be surprised if your father comes along

That is true. Take a look how some people are trying to fault immigrants
and racial minorities for everything what is wrong today. Looks like

It was this statement below I made when you accused me of lying. What I
am saying that you people are accusing others of lying and pointed out
that the Nazis were using the same words about the Jews.

 Surely, you do work for an organization and can hardly claim to be

Was Sol Littman and B’Nai Brith instrumental for shutting down the

Fact is that he mentioned Goldhagen and his book. It make no difference
wherever he was using a quote to prove his point. In all likelihood he
used his own interpretation to get a point across.

McVay is saying that he cannot find any reverence about the statement
Doug Collins made about Goldhagen and therefore it must be a lie. He
could be right when he says that he cannot find it in his book.
I gave an example in mentioning the book "Other Losses" and how many
revisions have been made to it.

I am sure that you and I do not support any group or person who are out
to make somebody’s live difficult because the have a different religion,
culture or color.

For me because I belong to a different culture group and experienced
hate against myselfe on account of this, It is very important to stamp
out hatred in any form.

That statement shows that you are not able to put your facts together or
by design ignore some of the statements I made. Let me repeat.

You informed my that you could find nowhere in Goldhagens book any
reverence to Collins statement. In return I gave a explanation that your
statement can be true because books are under constant revision. As an
example I gave a explanation what can happen by using Other losses as an
example Here is my quote again.

McVay could be telling the truth when he says that he cannot find this
quote in his book. Let me explain to you.
I have a Paperback Book in my possession. I am talking about the book "
Other Losses" I had this book first from the library. This book was
reprinted in October 1989, February 1990 and May 1991. ISBN:
0-7736-7309-1
There are many changes from the original I read in the library. As a
matter of fact the one I do have now is a revised edition. I am sure you
know what revised means.

This statement says it all. I am sure other people here reading your
posting will see what you are up too!

Perhaps you quote a lie every day and expect people to believe you?
Nowhere I said that everybody hates my Perhaps you feel that everybody
hates you? Why should I go and  verify information like this? Open your
eyes and have a look. This is a news group where people discuss the pro
and cons of any subject: You expect people to go to your web side  for
the same reason like many others to listen to your point of view. You
can convert some but not all.

It is your tactics to achieve your goal that are highly suspect.

You must be a real clown when you thing for one moment to get away with
your nonsense. You are trying to convince people that I am publishing
false news on purpose. In this your way to twist thing around.

I hope you go ahead with your style so people can really see what you
are. I am looking forward to your next response so you have a chance to
expose yourself and your supporters so people can see what tactics you
are using to suppress people with a different view.

Remember what John F Kennedy said about some Germans. "Berliners are
like eggs. When you boil them, they get  hard. If you boil them longer,
the get harder."

Go back to your bosses for more instructions before you make your next
move. I am waiting. I do know how to handle riffraff like you any day

Well perhaps the both are lying. But than again you ask me to take your
word and you could be lying too. Well I do not have the habit to accuse
people of lying because they the have a different opinion. Obviously it
is people like you who are interested to bring him down. It should be
your task to find out!

This has been done already. Using words like THE Germans or THEY. Now a
Mister Daniel Goldhagen, Jewish professor in New York say’s that all
German have a pathological hatred of Jews and wrote a book about this
"Willing Executioners. You think this book will be banned in Canada for
promoting hatred? What would the reaction be if he wrote ALL JEWS ARE
CROOKS? One prominent Jew said; "The world should never stop to hate
Germans." In earlier times Christians said: The Jews killed Jesus.

Really? You like to bring Collins down? Let me tell you boy Mister
Collins gets more credibility by the minute when you are writing like
this.

You people?
It is obvious to me that you could not run a fruit stand of your own. So
why don’t you go and tell me and others who is your sponsor, so you can
answer yourself what YOU PEOPLE means!!

Is this the way, and again I am saying you people operate to silence
people. Who are this people in your organization with so much power?

You know? You are giving Jewish people  bad name. The Jewish people I
met were smart decent people. You do not have this qualification.

You have to run this by me again: You like me to admit that I do not
know what Goldhagen had to say? Should I buy everybody’s book to find
out what they have to say? Listen boy Mister Collins made reference to
mister Goldhagen and now you are trying to deny me the right to say what
he had to say about him. Are you sure that you have all your faculties? 
Mr Slepokuo had the courtesy to post Mister Collins speech which made
reverence to Goldhagen. Now a dirt like you comes along that I should
not use this reverence because it does not fit into your hate
propoganty? Right? Oh I know, now you are going to tell me that YOU
PEOPLE are the chosen ones and have special right which cannot be given
to others. What a clown!!

It was not Slepokuos job to find out if collins was telling the truth.
Nowhere did he say the Collins was right or wrong on this!

Did I know that this assertion was false? That is easy to say. Right now
you are telling me that it is false. Why should I trust you? because you
say so? Suppose Collins uses the same argument, what happen than?

On faith? What nonsense. I read news papers every day and make the
decision what is interesting  to talk about.

I don not particular care if you are interested or not. Your action here

when it does not fit in you plans.

The only time you are your own boss when you go to your toilet to have a
piss. The rest of  the time you are playing a team song. Go and grow up.

Lets get it in your head, you are a nobody to begin with and are acting
as a mouthpiece for a big organization. It doesn’t matter what you say.
Fact is that your sponsors are trying to censor people you do not agree
with. You do not like what Collins has to say and you  made sure that
Zundel is silenced. As you noticed I was using the word YOU.

You are part of an organization wherever you like it or not. Life with
it

Perhaps no is the time for you to make the proper exit. Do it soon, so I
can put the manhole cover back on, Will you?

Maybe McVay has to win at all cost? Or he is afraid to show his
weakness? Or the reverse gear in his car is gone? Or he feels things 
could go out of control. Perhaps he has no instructions from higher up
what to do next. So many reasons and no easy answers. Could it be that
Stalin is beyond his plan not to listen to somebody else’s IDEAS?  
Naaa.  

He is just ignorant.

Where am I denying the Holocaust BOY??

You know the saying Whose bread I eat his song I sing BOY? What would
you do without your sponsors BOY?
To make your day BOY I will post Collins speech again and again till it
comes out of your ear BOY What filthy person are you anyway??
Here comes your wake up call again and let see how far you will go with
your distortions next time. You stink, take a bath you need it BOY.


The following is the text of the speech made by the veteran journalist
Doug Collins after the forced cancellation of a free speech conference
in Oliver, British Columbia, slated for March 21, 1998, at Oliver's 
city hall. It is published here as a censorship-busting exercise in free
speech. 

=-=-=-=-=

Doug Collins:

These are extraordinary times in Canada. Dangerous ones, too. The attack
on freedom of speech is massive. It has been going on for many years,
beginning in 1971 when the federal hate laws were passed. I was covering
parliament at the time and saw it happen at first hand. Since then
situation has grown progressively worse. It has now reached the stage
where under the B.C. Human Rights Code a person could be taken before a
human rights tribunal for telling a Newfie joke. It just depends on
whether Ujjal Dosanjh and the provincial government want to go after
him; in other words, whether he is a sanctioned target - sanctioned by
the politically correct and pressure groups like Sol Littman's Simon
Wiesenthal Centre.

It's disappointing that the establishment media are suckers for
propaganda
put out by those groups. All that's needed for them to press the panic
button and produce scare headlines is for the usual trigger words to be
used - neo-Nazi, white supremacist, racist, anti-Semitic. The issues are
rarely debated. So they resort to calling people names. Meanwhile, real
reporting seems to be out of fashion, taking handouts is very much in
fashion. The stories in the Okanagan media have been good examples of
that, as was Thursday's scare story in the Globe & Mail. Call it the
spirit of the times. Forty years ago we saw another spirit of the times.
It was called McCarthyism. Anyone who wanted medicare could be demonized
and seen as a Communist. I lived through those times, too, but many of
today's media weren't around then. So let's forgive them, for they know
not what they do. But it's time some of them grew up.

In the United States none of the anti-free speech laws that decorate the
landscape in Canada would get to first base. They have a Constitution
that protects free expression. We don't. Our Charter of Rights and 
Freedoms is a leaky vessel, which is why teachers and others can be 
fired from their jobs for holding the wrong views. In this country, 
too, an author like David Irving can be arrested while making a dinner
speech about free speech, put into handcuffs, and deported on an 
immigration pretext - while many killers and crooks of all kinds are 
allowed to remain here and while Asian gangs roam Vancouver on drive-by
shootings. That's something else the people of Oliver might think about
when they sign petitions asking the Attorney General in effect to go 
after Mr. Klatt for running an Internet service. But once again, let's
not blame them. They are victims of a massive propaganda campaign. 
That's what I was getting at when I wrote that famous or infamous 
column on Hollywood Propaganda. 

My interest in freedom of speech began a long time ago. When Ernst
Zundel was prosecuted for "spreading false news" in 1985 I appeared 
for the defence. I had never heard of the guy but it was
incomprehensible
to me that a man could be prosecuted for spreading false news. As I told
the court, Santa Claus spreads false news, the weatherman spreads false
news,and any reporter who has ever reported what a politician has had 
to say is probably spreading false news. Today's media are particularly 
good at spreading false news. The Globe & Mail story about this meeting 
that appeared on Thursday was liberally sprinkled with false news, as 
Oliver has good reason to know. In the Zundel case, of course, the 
Supreme Court of Canada agreed with me in the end and the false news law
was nixed.Littman can count himself lucky. 

But the anti-free speech experts were not discouraged. They invented
human rights commissions.The B.C. Human Rights Act, or Code, as it's 
called now,is a disgrace to the province and to the country. The 
Littmans think it's wonderful, of course, but they would, wouldn't 
they!.

I was charged under that Code. The Canadian Jewish Congress laid a
complaint against me after I'd written a column headed "Hollywood
Propaganda" in which I said that the six million holocaust figure was
nonsense, that the Jewish influence in Hollywood was predominant, and
that the move Schindler's List should have been called Swindler's List.
I said that because the man's own wife denounced him as a swindler, 
and she should know. As for who runs Hollywood, only last Sunday a 
two-hour program was shown on network TV called "Hollywoodism," which
confirmed my view in spades. I also stated in the column that I was 
tired of hate literature in the form of films, and that Schindler's 
List had to be the 555th. movie on the same subject. Think about 
that, when the Littmans and the Canadian Jewish Congress fulminate 
about hate literature. How would you feel if you were a German born 
long after Hitler was dead and you were reminded every day that your
grandfather did the wrong thing? Ask yourselves how you would feel if
you were a young German, being told by Daniel Goldhagen, a Jewish 
professor in New York, that Germans have a pathological hatred of Jews?
That's what he did in his book Hitler's Willing Executioners. Isn't 
that hate literature? But there's not much fuss about that. The book 
is freely available in Canada, while books to which the pressure groups
object are not. They are stopped at the border.

Reverse the Goldhagen thing and consider what the reaction would be if
someone wrote a book claiming that all Jews are crooks. What it boils
down to of course is that one man's Hitler is another man's Hemingway.

It's now over half a century since the war ended but from what see on TV
and you get in the media you might think it ended two weeks ago. 
As it happens, I know a lot more about Nazis than most of my critics do.
I was a prisoner of war in Germany until I escaped. I saw Bergen Belsen
concentration camp on the way up through Germany in 1945 after I had
rejoined the forces, and for some years after the war I was a Political
Intelligence Officer working on the de-Nazification of Germany. In
short,I have seen a lot of real Nazis, not just the ersatz types of 
which Sol Littman and that Communist academic David Lethbridge of 
Salmon Arm are so oncerned about.

In Lethbridge's case, at least, he seems to be quite UNconcerned about
the many more millions who died under communism. I might also say that
even if I was wrong, and I wasn't, in a democracy we are supposed to
have
the right to be wrong. Or is that now also out of fashion, with a
Ministry
of Truth headed by Littman and Co.? If so, then Oliver would have to be
the
Hate Capital of Canada and I would have to be an agent for
neo-Nazis,which
is what he called me on television. And speaking of television, it's
one thing to denounce people from a distance and quite another to face
them in debate. I debated free speech for an hour with Littman on CBC
Newsworld and in the viewer poll that was taken 73% voted for me and for
free speech.

As for that rights tribunal I faced, even a carefully selected
adjudicator had to dismiss the case. No hate here, as the North Shore 
News headline put it. And why did she throw out the complaint? Not, in 
my opinion, because she would not have liked to find me guilty, but 
because she knew that if the case had gone to court the complaint would 
have been found to be unconstitutional. Why? Because the B.C. Human
Rights
Code is a Heresy Act, pure and simple. A Heresy Act, which is one reason 
why I am here today, Mr. Attorney General Ujjal Dosanjh. Here are the 
facts: Under that law, truth is no defence; fair comment is not a
defence,
as it is with libel and slander; publication in the public
interest is not a defence, innocent intent is not a defence, and even
work done for scientific purposes is not a defence. 

Let me repeat what the lawyer for the B.C. Press Council said: this is a
law that attempts to stifle speech that is not criminal. That's where
we're at in B.C.

On top of all that the government itself can make its own complaints to
its own Human Rights Commission even when no complaint has been entered
by a third party. So they can get you going and coming even if no-one
else
wants to. Talk about Big Brother and George Orwell's 1984! Fortunately,
we still have courts in this country that can strike down the acts of 
these would-be dictators. In 1938 the Alberta Press Act was struck down,
just as the false news law was later. But the intent of the politicians 
who pass such laws is the same as it is in the dictatorships. 

But while the courts cogitate, speech in Canada is not free at all. It
comes at a price, which is why I no longer sing the national anthem. We
are not the True North Strong and Free. When we revert to being strong
and free I'll start singing again. In my case the defence of a free 
press has cost the North Shore News well over $200,000. Others, like 
Mr.Fromm,have been hounded from their jobs. But there is a bright side
to this. In the case of the North Shore News the public has subscribed 
nearly $150,000 to its defence fund, which shows that you can't fool 
all the people all the time.

It's not over, though. A man describing himself in his complaint as "a
Jewish person" - Harry Abrams, the founder of B'Nai Brith in Victoria -
has launched another action against me with those rights experts over
there who are led by that leather-clad lesbian, Mary Woo Sims, the chief
commissioner. He complains about six columns, including the Hollywood
propaganda column that was dismissed in the first tribunal. Double
jeopardy? What's that? Let's have a rematch, they say. 

Instead of waiting for handouts from Littman and Lethbridge about white
supremacists and other bogeymen, the media should take the trouble to
examine what's going on. Lethbridge and other free speech artists
screamed that this meeting should be stopped. So it was. Only meetings 
of which he approved would be allowed. He's a fascist of the Left. Yet 
the media quote him as if he were an oracle. 

If they did take a look at things, the media would find a firm link
between the politically correct of the militant left and government, who
are often one and the same, as in B.C. They would find that Lethbridge
was a key speaker at, and organizer of, the pro-violence Anti-Racist 
Action Trotskyite mob in Toronto that has been barred from school 
grounds.They would find that Alan Dutton the big anti-racist in B.C. 
was instrumental in getting grants for the ARA from Toronto Metro 
Council. He himself has received hundreds of thousand of dollars in 
grants from government, which finances the anti-freedom movement. . 
They would also find that hotels have been bullied - terrorized might
be a more appropriate term - into not renting premises to groups of 
whom the Lethbridges and the Duttons disapprove.That happened in 
Surrey a couple of years ago when the late Pat Burns of radio fame 
was to have been the keynote speaker and I was to have spoken on Bill 
33, which has become B.C.'s Heresy Act. They would find that no less 
a person than the Attorney General of this province approved of what 
they were doing. They would find that the Duttons and Letbridges
act as advisers to the Attonery General. They would find that the
Alberta Human Rights Commission told a hotel in Edmonton not to give
space to a group that planned to discuss the Canadian Constitution.
They would also find that attempts have been made by the same people
to deny groups space in public libraries. The same Harry Abrams I 
mentioned a minute ago is a leader in that endeavor. He has asked the 
National Library Association to do that, using the trigger word "hate 
groups". But so far the libraries have refused to be panicked. And if
the media are too lazy to seek all that out by themselves, I can help 
them. Yes, that's the kind of stuff you should be doing, Oliver
Chronicle,
Penticton Herald, Globe and Mail, Vancouver Sun, CBC and all the rest of
you. You don't do it, but I can tell you again this: I'm old enough to 
have seen all this happen before.

What's going on is really no different in spirit from what the
Brownshirts got up to in Nazi Germany. In Nazi Germany, it was enough 
to shout Jew, Communist or Socialist. Today in Canada it's enough to 
shout white supremacist, neo-Nazi, and anti-Semite. The ideologies are
different but the spirit is the same. A word or two about the Internet.
The Internet is seen by the Littmans as a threat. How dreadful that 
people can actually send out messages to the world without their having 
to go through the filter of a press dominated by the poltivally correct.
So - kill the Internet, and if the Internet can’t be killed then ruin 
anyone, like Mr. Klatt, who doesn't take orders and won't act as a
censor.
I should point out here that I have seen nothing of what the Littmans
and
Co are bitching about, nor have most of the media who echo what Littman 
says. I had never even heard of the Charlemagne Hammerheads before this 
affair blew up and I have never had lunch with a skinhead, ans what they
are supposed to be saying is certainly not my cup of tea.But I'll tell
you
something. I can be my own censor, thanks very much. I don't need
Littman's 
help.The same option is open to all Internet users. But Littman can't
trust
the public. He wants to treat people like children, while yelling about 
discrimination. To which I say, physician, heal thyself. 

Yes, the idea is to kill the Internet, or at least the controversial
voices on it that Littman doesn't like. And of course there are nasty
voices on it, although I've never bothered to tune in to them. But don't
be fooled by the idea that Littman's censorship would end with stopping
them. Let me give you an example of what I mean. When the Barrett
government got going on its human rights program in the early 1970s we
were told that all they wanted to do was to ensure fair play in hiring
and housing. But these things begin small and end large, and today human
rights commissions in this country are a menace to human rights. Rights
have become wrongs, and in today in B.C. the human rights gang is a
direct threat to freedom of the press. 

It is also said that you can learn how to make bombs on the Internet. So
you can. But you can also learn how to make bombs by other means. The
left-wing Squamish Five didn't need any Internet to learn how to make
and explode bombs in the 1980s, and people intent on making bombs today
don't need the Internet either.

When Winston Churchill lost the British election in 1945, he said,
"Trust the people." I follow that precept and it's my hope that in 
spite of the demonization of dissidents that ‘s going on now, 
Canadians will hold steady. We've been through crazy times before
and survived, and I'm here today in the expectation that we'll survive
this one. 

Meanwhile, Mayor Larson should put on her thinking cap instead of
pandering to the Littmans and giving way to bullies. Then there's
councillor Terry Shafer. He has said that the matter of this meeting is
a tough issue, particularly when the veterans are celebrating the 
creation of Canadian Legion here. They fought, he said so as to allow 
us the privilege of expressing our opinions, NO MATTER HOW AWFUL 
THOSE OPINIONS MAY BE.

What do you know about those opinions, councillor? Have you heard or
read any of them or are you taking the time from Littman and Lethbridge?
And what about your local Liberal MLA, Bill Barisoff? Has he had
anything
critical to say about the NDP's Heresy Law? If he has I must have been
snoozing. But he's reported as telling Litttman he'd be happy to work
with him to ensure that hate literature that violates the Criminal Code
does not appear anywhere in Canada. Does he take Littman's word for what
hate literature is? If you ask me, he's a bit like the Red Queen in
Alice
in Wonderland who said, sentence first, trial later. 

I'll leave you with a couple of other thoughts. A columnist said in
print last year that I give free speech a bad name. I replied by
pointing
out that free speech has always had a bad name. Free speech had a bad
name
when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of Wittingen
cathedral. It had a bad name when John Tyndale was burned at the stake
for translating the Bible into English. It had a bad name when John
Milton
wrote that truth and falsehood should grapple freely. It had a bad name
when the Ayatolla in Iran proclaimed a death sentence on Salman Rushdie,
and when the communists were up before the un-American Activities
Committee. It had a bad name two thousand years ago, when a man called
Jesus was nailed to the cross. One might almost say that free speech has
NEVER had a GOOD name, and thanks to the Littmans and the Lethbridges
and others like them free speech certainly has a bad name today. As I
mentioned earlier, if you are for free speech you are a neo-Nazi, a
crypto-Nazi, a white supremacist, or an anti-Semite. 

This sort of thing is not confined to Canada. It exists right across the
Western world. In Australia, Terry Lane, a well-known print and radio
commentator got into trouble with the local Littmans and wrote a letter
to the Australian Jewish News in 1992 in which he stated the following:

"The Zionist lobby in this country is malicious, implacable, mendacious
and dangerous. What's more, once the expression anti-Semitism hits the
air, or, heaven forfend, the sacred six million is uttered...we are
thrown to the jackals. I surrender. To the Zionists I say, you win. 
To the Palestinians, forgive my cowardice." 

In 1938, the Supreme Court of Canada had this to say when it struck down
the Alberta Press Act:

"Freedom of discussion is essential to enlighten public opinion in a
democratic state. It cannot be curtailed without affecting the right of
people to be informed, independent of government, concerning matters of
public interest. There must be untrammelled publication of news and
opinion." UNTRAMMELLED! It stated further that if the Social Credit law
were allowed to stand, the Socred doctrine would become a kind of
religious dogma that the people would buck at their peril. 

If the Littmans and other critics have their way, their dogmas would
become a kind of religion, too, that we would buck at our peril, and we
are already are buckinjg at our peril. So I say to hell with them, and
you can quote me. How about it, Mayor Larson and others who are running
for cover? How about it, Bill Barisoff? I can tell you where you should
stand. You should be standing right here with the rest of us, not
passing
by on the other side of the street. I will conclude by saying that I am 
77 years of age, that I defended freedom in the 1940s when Hitler was on
the loose, in the 1950s when McCarthy was on the loose, in the 1970s
when
the federal hate laws were passed, in the 1990s when those idiots in 
Victoria passed their misnamed Human Rights Act, and that I shall go on 
defending freedom until the day I die.

Thank you.

This has been done already. Using words like THE Germans or THEY. Now a
Mister Daniel Goldhagen, Jewish professor in New York say’s that all
German have a pathological hatred of Jews and wrote a book about this
"Willing Executioners. You think this book will be banned in Canada for
promoting hatred? What would the reaction be if he wrote ALL JEWS ARE
CROOKS? One prominent Jew said; "The world should never stop to hate
Germans." In earlier times Christians said: The Jews killed Jesus.

A Mister Oerest Slepokura quotet A Mister Doug Collins speech from March
21, 1998.
In there and this are the words:

How would you feel if you were a German born long after Hitler was dead
and you were reminded every day that your grandfather did the wrong
thing? Ask yourselves how you would feel if you were a young German,
being told by Daniel Goldhagen, a Jewish professor in New York, that
Germans have a pathalogigal hatred of Jews?  That’s what he did in his
book "Hitler’s Willing Executioners". But there’s not much fuss about
that.

The next episode: You boy are saying that I quoted Goldhagen. Where are
the quotation marks?
Were is what my dictionary say. You Ken BOY are a fraud and a disgrace
to your community

Quote: Somebodys word repeated exactly by another person from a person
pasage  or speech.

Quotation marks: One pair of marks to mark used to indicate the
beginning and end of a quotqtion.

One more time Collins speech for you.

The following is the text of the speech made by the veteran journalist
Doug Collins after the forced cancellation of a free speech conference
in Oliver, British Columbia, slated for March 21, 1998, at Oliver's 
city hall. It is published here as a censorship-busting exercise in free
speech. 

=-=-=-=-=

Doug Collins:

These are extraordinary times in Canada. Dangerous ones, too. The attack
on freedom of speech is massive. It has been going on for many years,
beginning in 1971 when the federal hate laws were passed. I was covering
parliament at the time and saw it happen at first hand. Since then
situation has grown progressively worse. It has now reached the stage
where under the B.C. Human Rights Code a person could be taken before a
human rights tribunal for telling a Newfie joke. It just depends on
whether Ujjal Dosanjh and the provincial government want to go after
him; in other words, whether he is a sanctioned target - sanctioned by
the politically correct and pressure groups like Sol Littman's Simon
Wiesenthal Centre.

It's disappointing that the establishment media are suckers for
propaganda
put out by those groups. All that's needed for them to press the panic
button and produce scare headlines is for the usual trigger words to be
used - neo-Nazi, white supremacist, racist, anti-Semitic. The issues are
rarely debated. So they resort to calling people names. Meanwhile, real
reporting seems to be out of fashion, taking handouts is very much in
fashion. The stories in the Okanagan media have been good examples of
that, as was Thursday's scare story in the Globe & Mail. Call it the
spirit of the times. Forty years ago we saw another spirit of the times.
It was called McCarthyism. Anyone who wanted medicare could be demonized
and seen as a Communist. I lived through those times, too, but many of
today's media weren't around then. So let's forgive them, for they know
not what they do. But it's time some of them grew up.

In the United States none of the anti-free speech laws that decorate the
landscape in Canada would get to first base. They have a Constitution
that protects free expression. We don't. Our Charter of Rights and 
Freedoms is a leaky vessel, which is why teachers and others can be 
fired from their jobs for holding the wrong views. In this country, 
too, an author like David Irving can be arrested while making a dinner
speech about free speech, put into handcuffs, and deported on an 
immigration pretext - while many killers and crooks of all kinds are 
allowed to remain here and while Asian gangs roam Vancouver on drive-by
shootings. That's something else the people of Oliver might think about
when they sign petitions asking the Attorney General in effect to go 
after Mr. Klatt for running an Internet service. But once again, let's
not blame them. They are victims of a massive propaganda campaign. 
That's what I was getting at when I wrote that famous or infamous

one thing to denounce people from a distance and quite another to face
them in debate. I debated free speech for an hour with Littman on CBC
Newsworld and in the viewer poll that was taken 73% voted for me and for
free speech.

who pass such laws is the same as it is in the dictatorships. 

But while the courts cogitate, speech in Canada is not free at all. It
comes at a price, which is why I no longer sing the national anthem. We
are not the True North Strong and Free. When we revert to being strong
and free I'll start singing again. In my case the defence of a free 
press has cost the North Shore News well over $200,000. Others, like 
Mr.Fromm,have been hounded from their jobs. But there is a bright side
to this. In the case of the North Shore News the public has subscribed 
nearly $150,000 to its defence fund, which shows that you can't fool 
all the people all the time.

It's not over, though. A man describing himself in his complaint as "a
Jewish person" - Harry Abrams, the founder of B'Nai Brith in Victoria -
has launched another action against me with those rights experts over
there who are led by that leather-clad lesbian, Mary Woo Sims, the chief
commissioner. He complains about six columns, including the Hollywood
propaganda column that was dismissed in the first tribunal. Double
jeopardy? What's that? Let's have a rematch, they say. 

Instead of waiting for handouts from Littman and Lethbridge about white
supremacists and other bogeymen, the media should take the trouble to
examine what's going on. Lethbridge and other free speech artists
screamed that this meeting should be stopped. So it was. Only meetings 
of which he approved would be allowed. He's a fascist of the Left. Yet 
the media quote him as if he were an oracle. 

If they did take a look at things, the media would find a firm link
between the politically correct of the militant left and government, who
are often one and the same, as in B.C. They would find that Lethbridge
was a key speaker at, and organizer of, the pro-violence Anti-Racist 
Action Trotskyite mob in Toronto that has been barred from school 
grounds.They would find that Alan Dutton the big anti-racist in B.C. 
was instrumental in getting grants for the ARA from Toronto Metro 
Council. He himself has received hundreds of thousand of dollars in 
grants from government, which finances the anti-freedom movement. . 
They would also find that hotels have been bullied - terrorized might
be a more appropriate term - into not renting premises to groups of 
whom the Lethbridges and the Duttons disapprove.That happened in 
Surrey a couple of years ago when the late Pat Burns of radio fame 
was to have been the keynote speaker and I was to have spoken on Bill 
33, which has become B.C.'s Heresy Act. They would find that no less 
a person than the Attorney General of this province approved of what 
they were doing. They would find that the Duttons and Letbridges
act as advisers to the Attonery General. They would find that the
Alberta Human Rights Commission told a hotel in Edmonton not to give
space to a group that planned to discuss the Canadian Constitution.
They would also find that attempts have been made by the same people
to deny groups space in public libraries. The same Harry Abrams I 
mentioned a minute ago is a leader in that endeavor. He has asked the 
National Library Association to do that, using the trigger word "hate 
groups". But so far the libraries have refused to be panicked. And if
the media are too lazy to seek all that out by themselves, I can help 
them. Yes, that's the kind of stuff you should be doing, Oliver
Chronicle,
Penticton Herald, Globe and Mail, Vancouver Sun, CBC and all the rest of
you. You don't do it, but I can tell you again this: I'm old enough to 
have seen all this happen before.

What's going on is really no different in spirit from what the
Brownshirts got up to in Nazi Germany. In Nazi Germany, it was enough 
to shout Jew, Communist or Socialist. Today in Canada it's enough to 
shout white supremacist, neo-Nazi, and anti-Semite. The ideologies are
different but the spirit is the same. A word or two about the Internet.
The Internet is seen by the Littmans as a threat. How dreadful that 
people can actually send out messages to the world without their having 
to go through the filter of a press dominated by the poltivally correct.
So - kill the Internet, and if the Internet can’t be killed then ruin 
anyone, like Mr. Klatt, who doesn't take orders and won't act as a
censor.
I should point out here that I have seen nothing of what the Littmans
and
Co are bitching about, nor have most of the media who echo what Littman 
says. I had never even heard of the Charlemagne Hammerheads before this 
affair blew up and I have never had lunch with a skinhead, ans what they
are supposed to be saying is certainly not my cup of tea.But I'll tell
you
something. I can be my own censor, thanks very much. I don't need
Littman's 
help.The same option is open to all Internet users. But Littman can't
trust
the public. He wants to treat people like children, while yelling about 
discrimination. To which I say, physician, heal thyself. 

Yes, the idea is to kill the Internet, or at least the controversial
voices on it that Littman doesn't like. And of course there are nasty
voices on it, although I've never bothered to tune in to them. But don't
be fooled by the idea that Littman's censorship would end with stopping
them. Let me give you an example of what I mean. When the Barrett
government got going on its human rights program in the early 1970s we
were told that all they wanted to do was to ensure fair play in hiring
and housing. But these things begin small and end large, and today human
rights commissions in this country are a menace to human rights. Rights
have become wrongs, and in today in B.C. the human rights gang is a
direct threat to freedom of the press. 

It is also said that you can learn how to make bombs on the Internet. So
you can. But you can also learn how to make bombs by other means. The
left-wing Squamish Five didn't need any Internet to learn how to make
and explode bombs in the 1980s, and people intent on making bombs today
don't need the Internet either.

When Winston Churchill lost the British election in 1945, he said,
"Trust the people." I follow that precept and it's my hope that in 
spite of the demonization of dissidents that ‘s going on now, 
Canadians will hold steady. We've been through crazy times before
and survived, and I'm here today in the expectation that we'll survive
this one. 

Meanwhile, Mayor Larson should put on her thinking cap instead of
pandering to the Littmans and giving way to bullies. Then there's
councillor Terry Shafer. He has said that the matter of this meeting is
a tough issue, particularly when the veterans are celebrating the 
creation of Canadian Legion here. They fought, he said so as to allow 
us the privilege of expressing our opinions, NO MATTER HOW AWFUL 
THOSE OPINIONS MAY BE.

What do you know about those opinions, councillor? Have you heard or
read any of them or are you taking the time from Littman and Lethbridge?
And what about your local Liberal MLA, Bill Barisoff? Has he had
anything
critical to say about the NDP's Heresy Law? If he has I must have been
snoozing. But he's reported as telling Litttman he'd be happy to work
with him to ensure that hate literature that violates the Criminal Code
does not appear anywhere in Canada. Does he take Littman's word for what
hate literature is? If you ask me, he's a bit like the Red Queen in
Alice
in Wonderland who said, sentence first, trial later. 

I'll leave you with a couple of other thoughts. A columnist said in
print last year that I give free speech a bad name. I replied by
pointing
out that free speech has always had a bad name. Free speech had a bad
name
when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of Wittingen
cathedral. It had a bad name when John Tyndale was burned at the stake
for translating the Bible into English. It had a bad name when John
Milton
wrote that truth and falsehood should grapple freely. It had a bad name
when the Ayatolla in Iran proclaimed a death sentence on Salman Rushdie,
and when the communists were up before the un-American Activities
Committee. It had a bad name two thousand years ago, when a man called
Jesus was nailed to the cross. One might almost say that free speech has
NEVER had a GOOD name, and thanks to the Littmans and the Lethbridges
and others like them free speech certainly has a bad name today. As I
mentioned earlier, if you are for free speech you are a neo-Nazi, a
crypto-Nazi, a white supremacist, or an anti-Semite. 

This sort of thing is not confined to Canada. It exists right across the
Western world. In Australia, Terry Lane, a well-known print and radio
commentator got into trouble with the local Littmans and wrote a letter
to the Australian Jewish News in 1992 in which he stated the following:

"The Zionist lobby in this country is malicious, implacable, mendacious
and dangerous. What's more, once the expression anti-Semitism hits the
air, or, heaven forfend, the sacred six million is uttered...we are
thrown to the jackals. I surrender. To the Zionists I say, you win. 
To the Palestinians, forgive my cowardice." 

In 1938, the Supreme Court of Canada had this to say when it struck down
the Alberta Press Act:

"Freedom of discussion is essential to enlighten public opinion in a
democratic state. It cannot be curtailed without affecting the right of
people to be informed, independent of government, concerning matters of
public interest. There must be untrammelled publication of news and
opinion." UNTRAMMELLED! It stated further that if the Social Credit law
were allowed to stand, the Socred doctrine would become a kind of
religious dogma that the people would buck at their peril. 

If the Littmans and other critics have their way, their dogmas would
become a kind of religion, too, that we would buck at our peril, and we
are already are buckinjg at our peril. So I say to hell with them, and
you can quote me. How about it, Mayor Larson and others who are running
for cover? How about it, Bill Barisoff? I can tell you where you should
stand. You should be standing right here with the rest of us, not
passing
by on the other side of the street. I will conclude by saying that I am 
77 years of age, that I defended freedom in the 1940s when Hitler was on
the loose, in the 1950s when McCarthy was on the loose, in the 1970s
when
the federal hate laws were passed, in the 1990s when those idiots in 
Victoria passed their misnamed Human Rights Act, and that I shall go on 
defending freedom until the day I die.

Thank you.

This has been done already. Using words like THE Germans or THEY. Now a
Mister Daniel Goldhagen, Jewish professor in New York say’s that all
German have a pathological hatred of Jews and wrote a book about this
"Willing Executioners. You think this book will be banned in Canada for
promoting hatred? What would the reaction be if he wrote ALL JEWS ARE
CROOKS? One prominent Jew said; "The world should never stop to hate
Germans." In earlier times Christians said: The Jews killed Jesus.

Note quotation marks from willing to Germans? Oviosly it did revere to

In there and this are the words:

How would you feel if you were a German born long after Hitler was dead
and you were reminded every day that your grandfather did the wrong

Still holding my nose.



The following is the text of the speech made by the veteran journalist
Doug Collins after the forced cancellation of a free speech conference
in Oliver, British Columbia, slated for March 21, 1998, at Oliver's 
city hall. It is published here as a censorship-busting exercise in free
speech. 

=-=-=-=-=

Doug Collins:

These are extraordinary times in Canada. Dangerous ones, too. The attack
on freedom of speech is massive. It has been going on for many years,
beginning in 1971 when the federal hate laws were passed. I was covering
parliament at the time and saw it happen at first hand. Since then
situation has grown progressively worse. It has now reached the stage
where under the B.C. Human Rights Code a person could be taken before a
human rights tribunal for telling a Newfie joke. It just depends on
whether Ujjal Dosanjh and the provincial government want to go after
him; in other words, whether he is a sanctioned target - sanctioned by
the politically correct and pressure groups like Sol Littman's Simon
Wiesenthal Centre.

It's disappointing that the establishment media are suckers for
propaganda
put out by those groups. All that's needed for them to press the panic
button and produce scare headlines is for the usual trigger words to be
used - neo-Nazi, white supremacist, racist, anti-Semitic. The issues are
rarely debated. So they resort to calling people names. Meanwhile, real
reporting seems to be out of fashion, taking handouts is very much in
fashion. The stories in the Okanagan media have been good examples of
that, as was Thursday's scare story in the Globe & Mail. Call it the
spirit of the times. Forty years ago we saw another spirit of the times.
It was called McCarthyism. Anyone who wanted medicare could be demonized
and seen as a Communist. I lived through those times, too, but many of
today's media weren't around then. So let's forgive them, for they know
not what they do. But it's time some of them grew up.

In the United States none of the anti-free speech laws that decorate the
landscape in Canada would get to first base. They have a Constitution
that protects free expression. We don't. Our Charter of Rights and 
Freedoms is a leaky vessel, which is why teachers and others can be 
fired from their jobs for holding the wrong views. In this country, 
too, an author like David Irving can be arrested while making a dinner
speech about free speech, put into handcuffs, and deported on an 
immigration pretext - while many killers and crooks of all kinds are 
allowed to remain here and while Asian gangs roam Vancouver on drive-by
shootings. That's something else the people of Oliver might think about
when they sign petitions asking the Attorney General in effect to go 
after Mr. Klatt for running an Internet service. But once again, let's
not blame them. They are victims of a massive propaganda campaign. 
That's what I was getting at when I wrote that famous or infamous 
column on Hollywood Propaganda. 

My interest in freedom of speech began a long time ago. When Ernst
Zundel was prosecuted for "spreading false news" in 1985 I appeared 
for the defence. I had never heard of the guy but it was
incomprehensible
to me that a man could be prosecuted for spreading false news. As I told
the court, Santa Claus spreads false news, the weatherman spreads false
news,and any reporter who has ever reported what a politician has had 
to say is probably spreading false news. Today's media are particularly 
good at spreading false news. The Globe & Mail story about this meeting 
that appeared on Thursday was liberally sprinkled with false news, as 
Oliver has good reason to know. In the Zundel case, of course, the 
Supreme Court of Canada agreed with me in the end and the false news law
was nixed.Littman can count himself lucky. 

But the anti-free speech experts were not discouraged. They invented
human rights commissions.The B.C. Human Rights Act, or Code, as it's 
called now,is a disgrace to the province and to the country. The 
Littmans think it's wonderful, of course, but they would, wouldn't 
they!.

I was charged under that Code. The Canadian Jewish Congress laid a
complaint against me after I'd written a column headed "Hollywood
Propaganda" in which I said that the six million holocaust figure was
nonsense, that the Jewish influence in Hollywood was predominant, and
that the move Schindler's List should have been called Swindler's List.
I said that because the man's own wife denounced him as a swindler, 
and she should know. As for who runs Hollywood, only last Sunday a 
two-hour program was shown on network TV called "Hollywoodism," which
confirmed my view in spades. I also stated in the column that I was 
tired of hate literature in the form of films, and that Schindler's 
List had to be the 555th. movie on the same subject. Think about 
that, when the Littmans and the Canadian Jewish Congress fulminate 
about hate literature. How would you feel if you were a German born 
long after Hitler was dead and you were reminded every day that your
grandfather did the wrong thing? Ask yourselves how you would feel if
you were a young German, being told by Daniel Goldhagen, a Jewish 
professor in New York, that Germans have a pathological hatred of Jews?
That's what he did in his book Hitler's Willing Executioners. Isn't 
that hate literature? But there's not much fuss about that. The book 
is freely available in Canada, while books to which the pressure groups
object are not. They are stopped at the border.

Reverse the Goldhagen thing and consider what the reaction would be if
someone wrote a book claiming that all Jews are crooks. What it boils
down to of course is that one man's Hitler is another man's Hemingway.

It's now over half a century since the war ended but from what see on TV
and you get in the media you might think it ended two weeks ago. 
As it happens, I know a lot more about Nazis than most of my critics do.
I was a prisoner of war in Germany until I escaped. I saw Bergen Belsen
concentration camp on the way up through Germany in 1945 after I had
rejoined the forces, and for some years after the war I was a Political
Intelligence Officer working on the de-Nazification of Germany. In
short,I have seen a lot of real Nazis, not just the ersatz types of 
which Sol Littman and that Communist academic David Lethbridge of 
Salmon Arm are so oncerned about.

In Lethbridge's case, at least, he seems to be quite UNconcerned about
the many more millions who died under communism. I might also say that
even if I was wrong, and I wasn't, in a democracy we are supposed to
have
the right to be wrong. Or is that now also out of fashion, with a
Ministry
of Truth headed by Littman and Co.? If so, then Oliver would have to be
the
Hate Capital of Canada and I would have to be an agent for
neo-Nazis,which
is what he called me on television. And speaking of television, it's
one thing to denounce people from a distance and quite another to face
them in debate. I debated free speech for an hour with Littman on CBC
Newsworld and in the viewer poll that was taken 73% voted for me and for
free speech.

As for that rights tribunal I faced, even a carefully selected
adjudicator had to dismiss the case. No hate here, as the North Shore 
News headline put it. And why did she throw out the complaint? Not, in 
my opinion, because she would not have liked to find me guilty, but 
because she knew that if the case had gone to court the complaint would 
have been found to be unconstitutional. Why? Because the B.C. Human
Rights
Code is a Heresy Act, pure and simple. A Heresy Act, which is one reason 
why I am here today, Mr. Attorney General Ujjal Dosanjh. Here are the 
facts: Under that law, truth is no defence; fair comment is not a
defence,
as it is with libel and slander; publication in the public
interest is not a defence, innocent intent is not a defence, and even
work done for scientific purposes is not a defence. 

Let me repeat what the lawyer for the B.C. Press Council said: this is a
law that attempts to stifle speech that is not criminal. That's where
we're at in B.C.

On top of all that the government itself can make its own complaints to
its own Human Rights Commission even when no complaint has been entered
by a third party. So they can get you going and coming even if no-one
else
wants to. Talk about Big Brother and George Orwell's 1984! Fortunately,
we still have courts in this country that can strike down the acts of 
these would-be dictators. In 1938 the Alberta Press Act was struck down,
just as the false news law was later. But the intent of the politicians 
who pass such laws is the same as it is in the dictatorships. 

But while the courts cogitate, speech in Canada is not free at all. It
comes at a price, which is why I no longer sing the national anthem. We
are not the True North Strong and Free. When we revert to being strong
and free I'll start singing again. In my case the defence of a free 
press has cost the North Shore News well over $200,000. Others, like 
Mr.Fromm,have been hounded from their jobs. But there is a bright side
to this. In the case of the North Shore News the public has subscribed 
nearly $150,000 to its defence fund, which shows that you can't fool 
all the people all the time.

It's not over, though. A man describing himself in his complaint as "a
Jewish person" - Harry Abrams, the founder of B'Nai Brith in Victoria -
has launched another action against me with those rights experts over
there who are led by that leather-clad lesbian, Mary Woo Sims, the chief
commissioner. He complains about six columns, including the Hollywood
propaganda column that was dismissed in the first tribunal. Double
jeopardy? What's that? Let's have a rematch, they say. 

Instead of waiting for handouts from Littman and Lethbridge about white
supremacists and other bogeymen, the media should take the trouble to
examine what's going on. Lethbridge and other free speech artists
screamed that this meeting should be stopped. So it was. Only meetings 
of which he approved would be allowed. He's a fascist of the Left. Yet 
the media quote him as if he were an oracle. 

If they did take a look at things, the media would find a firm link
between the politically correct of the militant left and government, who
are often one and the same, as in B.C. They would find that Lethbridge
was a key speaker at, and organizer of, the pro-violence Anti-Racist 
Action Trotskyite mob in Toronto that has been barred from school 
grounds.They would find that Alan Dutton the big anti-racist in B.C. 
was instrumental in getting grants for the ARA from Toronto Metro 
Council. He himself has received hundreds of thousand of dollars in 
grants from government, which finances the anti-freedom movement. . 
They would also find that hotels have been bullied - terrorized might
be a more appropriate term - into not renting premises to groups of 
whom the Lethbridges and the Duttons disapprove.That happened in 
Surrey a couple of years ago when the late Pat Burns of radio fame 
was to have been the keynote speaker and I was to have spoken on Bill 
33, which has become B.C.'s Heresy Act. They would find that no less 
a person than the Attorney General of this province approved of what 
they were doing. They would find that the Duttons and Letbridges
act as advisers to the Attonery General. They would find that the
Alberta Human Rights Commission told a hotel in Edmonton not to give
space to a group that planned to discuss the Canadian Constitution.
They would also find that attempts have been made by the same people
to deny groups space in public libraries. The same Harry Abrams I 
mentioned a minute ago is a leader in that endeavor. He has asked the 
National Library Association to do that, using the trigger word "hate 
groups". But so far the libraries have refused to be panicked. And if
the media are too lazy to seek all that out by themselves, I can help 
them. Yes, that's the kind of stuff you should be doing, Oliver
Chronicle,
Penticton Herald, Globe and Mail, Vancouver Sun, CBC and all the rest of
you. You don't do it, but I can tell you again this: I'm old enough to 
have seen all this happen before.

What's going on is really no different in spirit from what the
Brownshirts got up to in Nazi Germany. In Nazi Germany, it was enough 
to shout Jew, Communist or Socialist. Today in Canada it's enough to 
shout white supremacist, neo-Nazi, and anti-Semite. The ideologies are
different but the spirit is the same. A word or two about the Internet.
The Internet is seen by the Littmans as a threat. How dreadful that 
people can actually send out messages to the world without their having 
to go through the filter of a press dominated by the poltivally correct.
So - kill the Internet, and if the Internet can’t be killed then ruin 
anyone, like Mr. Klatt, who doesn't take orders and won't act as a
censor.
I should point out here that I have seen nothing of what the Littmans
and
Co are bitching about, nor have most of the media who echo what Littman 
says. I had never even heard of the Charlemagne Hammerheads before this 
affair blew up and I have never had lunch with a skinhead, ans what they
are supposed to be saying is certainly not my cup of tea.But I'll tell
you
something. I can be my own censor, thanks very much. I don't need
Littman's 
help.The same option is open to all Internet users. But Littman can't
trust
the public. He wants to treat people like children, while yelling about 
discrimination. To which I say, physician, heal thyself. 

Yes, the idea is to kill the Internet, or at least the controversial
voices on it that Littman doesn't like. And of course there are nasty
voices on it, although I've never bothered to tune in to them. But don't
be fooled by the idea that Littman's censorship would end with stopping
them. Let me give you an example of what I mean. When the Barrett
government got going on its human rights program in the early 1970s we
were told that all they wanted to do was to ensure fair play in hiring
and housing. But these things begin small and end large, and today human
rights commissions in this country are a menace to human rights. Rights
have become wrongs, and in today in B.C. the human rights gang is a
direct threat to freedom of the press. 

It is also said that you can learn how to make bombs on the Internet. So
you can. But you can also learn how to make bombs by other means. The
left-wing Squamish Five didn't need any Internet to learn how to make
and explode bombs in the 1980s, and people intent on making bombs today
don't need the Internet either.

When Winston Churchill lost the British election in 1945, he said,
"Trust the people." I follow that precept and it's my hope that in 
spite of the demonization of dissidents that ‘s going on now, 
Canadians will hold steady. We've been through crazy times before
and survived, and I'm here today in the expectation that we'll survive
this one. 

Meanwhile, Mayor Larson should put on her thinking cap instead of
pandering to the Littmans and giving way to bullies. Then there's
councillor Terry Shafer. He has said that the matter of this meeting is
a tough issue, particularly when the veterans are celebrating the 
creation of Canadian Legion here. They fought, he said so as to allow 
us the privilege of expressing our opinions, NO MATTER HOW AWFUL 
THOSE OPINIONS MAY BE.

What do you know about those opinions, councillor? Have you heard or
read any of them or are you taking the time from Littman and Lethbridge?
And what about your local Liberal MLA, Bill Barisoff? Has he had
anything
critical to say about the NDP's Heresy Law? If he has I must have been
snoozing. But he's reported as telling Litttman he'd be happy to work
with him to ensure that hate literature that violates the Criminal Code
does not appear anywhere in Canada. Does he take Littman's word for what
hate literature is? If you ask me, he's a bit like the Red Queen in
Alice
in Wonderland who said, sentence first, trial later. 

I'll leave you with a couple of other thoughts. A columnist said in
print last year that I give free speech a bad name. I replied by
pointing
out that free speech has always had a bad name. Free speech had a bad
name
when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of Wittingen
cathedral. It had a bad name when John Tyndale was burned at the stake
for translating the Bible into English. It had a bad name when John
Milton
wrote that truth and falsehood should grapple freely. It had a bad name
when the Ayatolla in Iran proclaimed a death sentence on Salman Rushdie,
and when the communists were up before the un-American Activities
Committee. It had a bad name two thousand years ago, when a man called
Jesus was nailed to the cross. One might almost say that free speech has
NEVER had a GOOD name, and thanks to the Littmans and the Lethbridges
and others like them free speech certainly has a bad name today. As I
mentioned earlier, if you are for free speech you are a neo-Nazi, a
crypto-Nazi, a white supremacist, or an anti-Semite. 

This sort of thing is not confined to Canada. It exists right across the
Western world. In Australia, Terry Lane, a well-known print and radio
commentator got into trouble with the local Littmans and wrote a letter
to the Australian Jewish News in 1992 in which he stated the following:

"The Zionist lobby in this country is malicious, implacable, mendacious
and dangerous. What's more, once the expression anti-Semitism hits the
air, or, heaven forfend, the sacred six million is uttered...we are
thrown to the jackals. I surrender. To the Zionists I say, you win. 
To the Palestinians, forgive my cowardice." 

In 1938, the Supreme Court of Canada had this to say when it struck down
the Alberta Press Act:

"Freedom of discussion is essential to enlighten public opinion in a
democratic state. It cannot be curtailed without affecting the right of
people to be informed, independent of government, concerning matters of
public interest. There must be untrammelled publication of news and
opinion." UNTRAMMELLED! It stated further that if the Social Credit law
were allowed to stand, the Socred doctrine would become a kind of
religious dogma that the people would buck at their peril. 

If the Littmans and other critics have their way, their dogmas would
become a kind of religion, too, that we would buck at our peril, and we
are already are buckinjg at our peril. So I say to hell with them, and
you can quote me. How about it, Mayor Larson and others who are running
for cover? How about it, Bill Barisoff? I can tell you where you should
stand. You should be standing right here with the rest of us, not
passing
by on the other side of the street. I will conclude by saying that I am 
77 years of age, that I defended freedom in the 1940s when Hitler was on
the loose, in the 1950s when McCarthy was on the loose, in the 1970s
when
the federal hate laws were passed, in the 1990s when those idiots in 
Victoria passed their misnamed Human Rights Act, and that I shall go on 
defending freedom until the day I die.

Thank you.

The people, you BOY are pulling your foreskin back for them. 

The following is the text of the speech made by the veteran journalist
Doug Collins after the forced cancellation of a free speech conference
in Oliver, British Columbia, slated for March 21, 1998, at Oliver's 
city hall. It is published here as a censorship-busting exercise in free
speech. 

=-=-=-=-=

Doug Collins:

These are extraordinary times in Canada. Dangerous ones, too. The attack
on freedom of speech is massive. It has been going on for many years,
beginning in 1971 when the federal hate laws were passed. I was covering
parliament at the time and saw it happen at first hand. Since then
situation has grown progressively worse. It has now reached the stage
where under the B.C. Human Rights Code a person could be taken before a
human rights tribunal for telling a Newfie joke. It just depends on
whether Ujjal Dosanjh and the provincial government want to go after
him; in other words, whether he is a sanctioned target - sanctioned by
the politically correct and pressure groups like Sol Littman's Simon
Wiesenthal Centre.

It's disappointing that the establishment media are suckers for
propaganda
put out by those groups. All that's needed for them to press the panic
button and produce scare headlines is for the usual trigger words to be
used - neo-Nazi, white supremacist, racist, anti-Semitic. The issues are
rarely debated. So they resort to calling people names. Meanwhile, real
reporting seems to be out of fashion, taking handouts is very much in
fashion. The stories in the Okanagan media have been good examples of
that, as was Thursday's scare story in the Globe & Mail. Call it the

immigration pretext - while many killers and crooks of all kinds are 
allowed to remain here and while Asian gangs roam Vancouver on drive-by
shootings. That's something else the people of Oliver might think about
when they sign petitions asking the Attorney General in effect to go

33, which has become B.C.'s Heresy Act. They would find that no less 
a person than the Attorney General of this province approved of what 
they were doing. They would find that the Duttons and Letbridges
act as advisers to the Attonery General. They would find that the
Alberta Human Rights Commission told a hotel in Edmonton not to give
space to a group that planned to discuss the Canadian Constitution.
They would also find that attempts have been made by the same people
to deny groups space in public libraries. The same Harry Abrams I 
mentioned a minute ago is a leader in that endeavor. He has asked the 
National Library Association to do that, using the trigger word "hate 
groups". But so far the libraries have refused to be panicked. And if
the media are too lazy to seek all that out by themselves, I can help 
them. Yes, that's the kind of stuff you should be doing, Oliver
Chronicle,
Penticton Herald, Globe and Mail, Vancouver Sun, CBC and all the rest of
you. You don't do it, but I can tell you again this: I'm old enough to 
have seen all this happen before.

What's going on is really no different in spirit from what the
Brownshirts got up to in Nazi Germany. In Nazi Germany, it was enough 
to shout Jew, Communist or Socialist. Today in Canada it's enough to 
shout white supremacist, neo-Nazi, and anti-Semite. The ideologies are
different but the spirit is the same. A word or two about the Internet.
The Internet is seen by the Littmans as a threat. How dreadful that 
people can actually send out messages to the world without their having 
to go through the filter of a press dominated by the poltivally correct.
So - kill the Internet, and if the Internet can’t be killed then ruin 
anyone, like Mr. Klatt, who doesn't take orders and won't act as a
censor.
I should point out here that I have seen nothing of what the Littmans
and
Co are bitching about, nor have most of the media who echo what Littman 
says. I had never even heard of the Charlemagne Hammerheads before this 
affair blew up and I have never had lunch with a skinhead, ans what they
are supposed to be saying is certainly not my cup of tea.But I'll tell
you
something. I can be my own censor, thanks very much. I don't need
Littman's 
help.The same option is open to all Internet users. But Littman can't
trust
the public. He wants to treat people like children, while yelling about 
discrimination. To which I say, physician, heal thyself. 

Yes, the idea is to kill the Internet, or at least the controversial
voices on it that Littman doesn't like. And of course there are nasty
voices on it, although I've never bothered to tune in to them. But don't
be fooled by the idea that Littman's censorship would end with stopping
them. Let me give you an example of what I mean. When the Barrett
government got going on its human rights program in the early 1970s we
were told that all they wanted to do was to ensure fair play in hiring
and housing. But these things begin small and end large, and today human
rights commissions in this country are a menace to human rights. Rights
have become wrongs, and in today in B.C. the human rights gang is a
direct threat to freedom of the press. 

It is also said that you can learn how to make bombs on the Internet. So
you can. But you can also learn how to make bombs by other means. The
left-wing Squamish Five didn't need any Internet to learn how to make
and explode bombs in the 1980s, and people intent on making bombs today
don't need the Internet either.

When Winston Churchill lost the British election in 1945, he said,
"Trust the people." I follow that precept and it's my hope that in 
spite of the demonization of dissidents that ‘s going on now, 
Canadians will hold steady. We've been through crazy times before
and survived, and I'm here today in the expectation that we'll survive
this one. 

Meanwhile, Mayor Larson should put on her thinking cap instead of
pandering to the Littmans and giving way to bullies. Then there's
councillor Terry Shafer. He has said that the matter of this meeting is
a tough issue, particularly when the veterans are celebrating the 
creation of Canadian Legion here. They fought, he said so as to allow 
us the privilege of expressing our opinions, NO MATTER HOW AWFUL 
THOSE OPINIONS MAY BE.

What do you know about those opinions, councillor? Have you heard or
read any of them or are you taking the time from Littman and Lethbridge?
And what about your local Liberal MLA, Bill Barisoff? Has he had
anything
critical to say about the NDP's Heresy Law? If he has I must have been
snoozing. But he's reported as telling Litttman he'd be happy to work
with him to ensure that hate literature that violates the Criminal Code
does not appear anywhere in Canada. Does he take Littman's word for what
hate literature is? If you ask me, he's a bit like the Red Queen in
Alice
in Wonderland who said, sentence first, trial later. 

I'll leave you with a couple of other thoughts. A columnist said in
print last year that I give free speech a bad name. I replied by
pointing
out that free speech has always had a bad name. Free speech had a bad
name
when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of Wittingen
cathedral. It had a bad name when John Tyndale was burned at the stake
for translating the Bible into English. It had a bad name when John
Milton
wrote that truth and falsehood should grapple freely. It had a bad name
when the Ayatolla in Iran proclaimed a death sentence on Salman Rushdie,
and when the communists were up before the un-American Activities
Committee. It had a bad name two thousand years ago, when a man called
Jesus was nailed to the cross. One might almost say that free speech has
NEVER had a GOOD name, and thanks to the Littmans and the Lethbridges
and others like them free speech certainly has a bad name today. As I
mentioned earlier, if you are for free speech you are a neo-Nazi, a
crypto-Nazi, a white supremacist, or an anti-Semite. 

This sort of thing is not confined to Canada. It exists right across the
Western world. In Australia, Terry Lane, a well-known print and radio
commentator got into trouble with the local Littmans and wrote a letter
to the Australian Jewish News in 1992 in which he stated the following:

"The Zionist lobby in this country is malicious, implacable, mendacious
and dangerous. What's more, once the expression anti-Semitism hits the
air, or, heaven forfend, the sacred six million is uttered...we are
thrown to the jackals. I surrender. To the Zionists I say, you win. 
To the Palestinians, forgive my cowardice." 

In 1938, the Supreme Court of Canada had this to say when it struck down
the Alberta Press Act:

"Freedom of discussion is essential to enlighten public opinion in a
democratic state. It cannot be curtailed without affecting the right of
people to be informed, independent of government, concerning matters of
public interest. There must be untrammelled publication of news and
opinion." UNTRAMMELLED! It stated further that if the Social Credit law
were allowed to stand, the Socred doctrine would become a kind of
religious dogma that the people would buck at their peril. 

If the Littmans and other critics have their way, their dogmas would
become a kind of religion, too, that we would buck at our peril, and we
are already are buckinjg at our peril. So I say to hell with them, and
you can quote me. How about it, Mayor Larson and others who are running
for cover? How about it, Bill Barisoff? I can tell you where you should
stand. You should be standing right here with the rest of us, not
passing
by on the other side of the street. I will conclude by saying that I am 
77 years of age, that I defended freedom in the 1940s when Hitler was on
the loose, in the 1950s when McCarthy was on the loose, in the 1970s
when
the federal hate laws were passed, in the 1990s when those idiots in 
Victoria passed their misnamed Human Rights Act, and that I shall go on 
defending freedom until the day I die.

Thank you.

Now you are telling me what your real name is. Mister Ken Claptrap. 
The mouth in motion man of the year. 


The following is the text of the speech made by the veteran journalist
Doug Collins after the forced cancellation of a free speech conference
in Oliver, British Columbia, slated for March 21, 1998, at Oliver's 
city hall. It is published here as a censorship-busting exercise in free
speech. 

=-=-=-=-=

Doug Collins:

These are extraordinary times in Canada. Dangerous ones, too. The attack
on freedom of speech is massive. It has been going on for many years,
beginning in 1971 when the federal hate laws were passed. I was covering
parliament at the time and saw it happen at first hand. Since then
situation has grown progressively worse. It has now reached the stage
where under the B.C. Human Rights Code a person could be taken before a
human rights tribunal for telling a Newfie joke. It just depends on
whether Ujjal Dosanjh and the provincial government want to go after
him; in other words, whether he is a sanctioned target - sanctioned by
the politically correct and pressure groups like Sol Littman's Simon
Wiesenthal Centre.

It's disappointing that the establishment media are suckers for
propaganda
put out by those groups. All that's needed for them to press the panic
button and produce scare headlines is for the usual trigger words to be
used - neo-Nazi, white supremacist, racist, anti-Semitic. The issues are
rarely debated. So they resort to calling people names. Meanwhile, real
reporting seems to be out of fashion, taking handouts is very much in
fashion. The stories in the Okanagan media have been good examples of
that, as was Thursday's scare story in the Globe & Mail. Call it the
spirit of the times. Forty years ago we saw another spirit of the times.
It was called McCarthyism. Anyone who wanted medicare could be demonized
and seen as a Communist. I lived through those times, too, but many of
today's media weren't around then. So let's forgive them, for they know
not what they do. But it's time some of them grew up.

In the United States none of the anti-free speech laws that decorate the
landscape in Canada would get to first base. They have a Constitution
that protects free expression. We don't. Our Charter of Rights and 
Freedoms is a leaky vessel, which is why teachers and others can be 
fired from their jobs for holding the wrong views. In this country, 
too, an author like David Irving can be arrested while making a dinner
speech about free speech, put into handcuffs, and deported on an 
immigration pretext - while many killers and crooks of all kinds are 
allowed to remain here and while Asian gangs roam Vancouver on drive-by
shootings. That's something else the people of Oliver might think about
when they sign petitions asking the Attorney General in effect to go 
after Mr. Klatt for running an Internet service. But once again, let's
not blame them. They are victims of a massive propaganda campaign. 
That's what I was getting at when I wrote that famous or infamous 
column on Hollywood Propaganda. 

My interest in freedom of speech began a long time ago. When Ernst
Zundel was prosecuted for "spreading false news" in 1985 I appeared 
for the defence. I had never heard of the guy but it was
incomprehensible
to me that a man could be prosecuted for spreading false news. As I told
the court, Santa Claus spreads false news, the weatherman spreads false
news,and any reporter who has ever reported what a politician has had 
to say is probably spreading false news. Today's media are particularly 
good at spreading false news. The Globe & Mail story about this meeting 
that appeared on Thursday was liberally sprinkled with false news, as 
Oliver has good reason to know. In the Zundel case, of course, the 
Supreme Court of Canada agreed with me in the end and the false news law
was nixed.Littman can count himself lucky. 

But the anti-free speech experts were not discouraged. They invented
human rights commissions.The B.C. Human Rights Act, or Code, as it's 
called now,is a disgrace to the province and to the country. The 
Littmans think it's wonderful, of course, but they would, wouldn't 
they!.

I was charged under that Code. The Canadian Jewish Congress laid a
complaint against me after I'd written a column headed "Hollywood
Propaganda" in which I said that the six million holocaust figure was
nonsense, that the Jewish influence in Hollywood was predominant, and
that the move Schindler's List should have been called Swindler's List.
I said that because the man's own wife denounced him as a swindler, 
and she should know. As for who runs Hollywood, only last Sunday a 
two-hour program was shown on network TV called "Hollywoodism," which
confirmed my view in spades. I also stated in the column that I was 
tired of hate literature in the form of films, and that Schindler's 
List had to be the 555th. movie on the same subject. Think about 
that, when the Littmans and the Canadian Jewish Congress fulminate 
about hate literature. How would you feel if you were a German born 
long after Hitler was dead and you were reminded every day that your
grandfather did the wrong thing? Ask yourselves how you would feel if
you were a young German, being told by Daniel Goldhagen, a Jewish 
professor in New York, that Germans have a pathological hatred of Jews?
That's what he did in his book Hitler's Willing Executioners. Isn't 
that hate literature? But there's not much fuss about that. The book 
is freely available in Canada, while books to which the pressure groups
object are not. They are stopped at the border.

Reverse the Goldhagen thing and consider what the reaction would be if
someone wrote a book claiming that all Jews are crooks. What it boils
down to of course is that one man's Hitler is another man's Hemingway.

It's now over half a century since the war ended but from what see on TV
and you get in the media you might think it ended two weeks ago. 
As it happens, I know a lot more about Nazis than most of my critics do.
I was a prisoner of war in Germany until I escaped. I saw Bergen Belsen
concentration camp on the way up through Germany in 1945 after I had
rejoined the forces, and for some years after the war I was a Political
Intelligence Officer working on the de-Nazification of Germany. In
short,I have seen a lot of real Nazis, not just the ersatz types of 
which Sol Littman and that Communist academic David Lethbridge of 
Salmon Arm are so oncerned about.

In Lethbridge's case, at least, he seems to be quite UNconcerned about
the many more millions who died under communism. I might also say that
even if I was wrong, and I wasn't, in a democracy we are supposed to
have
the right to be wrong. Or is that now also out of fashion, with a
Ministry
of Truth headed by Littman and Co.? If so, then Oliver would have to be
the
Hate Capital of Canada and I would have to be an agent for
neo-Nazis,which
is what he called me on television. And speaking of television, it's
one thing to denounce people from a distance and quite another to face
them in debate. I debated free speech for an hour with Littman on CBC
Newsworld and in the viewer poll that was taken 73% voted for me and for
free speech.

As for that rights tribunal I faced, even a carefully selected
adjudicator had to dismiss the case. No hate here, as the North Shore 
News headline put it. And why did she throw out the complaint? Not, in 
my opinion, because she would not have liked to find me guilty, but 
because she knew that if the case had gone to court the complaint would 
have been found to be unconstitutional. Why? Because the B.C. Human
Rights
Code is a Heresy Act, pure and simple. A Heresy Act, which is one reason 
why I am here today, Mr. Attorney General Ujjal Dosanjh. Here are the 
facts: Under that law, truth is no defence; fair comment is not a
defence,
as it is with libel and slander; publication in the public
interest is not a defence, innocent intent is not a defence, and even
work done for scientific purposes is not a defence. 

Let me repeat what the lawyer for the B.C. Press Council said: this is a
law that attempts to stifle speech that is not criminal. That's where
we're at in B.C.

On top of all that the government itself can make its own complaints to
its own Human Rights Commission even when no complaint has been entered
by a third party. So they can get you going and coming even if no-one
else
wants to. Talk about Big Brother and George Orwell's 1984! Fortunately,
we still have courts in this country that can strike down the acts of 
these would-be dictators. In 1938 the Alberta Press Act was struck down,
just as the false news law was later. But the intent of the politicians 
who pass such laws is the same as it is in the dictatorships. 

But while the courts cogitate, speech in Canada is not free at all. It
comes at a price, which is why I no longer sing the national anthem. We
are not the True North Strong and Free. When we revert to being strong
and free I'll start singing again. In my case the defence of a free 
press has cost the North Shore News well over $200,000. Others, like 
Mr.Fromm,have been hounded from their jobs. But there is a bright side
to this. In the case of the North Shore News the public has subscribed 
nearly $150,000 to its defence fund, which shows that you can't fool 
all the people all the time.

It's not over, though. A man describing himself in his complaint as "a
Jewish person" - Harry Abrams, the founder of B'Nai Brith in Victoria -
has launched another action against me with those rights experts over
there who are led by that leather-clad lesbian, Mary Woo Sims, the chief
commissioner. He complains about six columns, including the Hollywood
propaganda column that was dismissed in the first tribunal. Double
jeopardy? What's that? Let's have a rematch, they say. 

Instead of waiting for handouts from Littman and Lethbridge about white
supremacists and other bogeymen, the media should take the trouble to
examine what's going on. Lethbridge and other free speech artists
screamed that this meeting should be stopped. So it was. Only meetings 
of which he approved would be allowed. He's a fascist of the Left. Yet 
the media quote him as if he were an oracle. 

If they did take a look at things, the media would find a firm link
between the politically correct of the militant left and government, who
are often one and the same, as in B.C. They would find that Lethbridge
was a key speaker at, and organizer of, the pro-violence Anti-Racist 
Action Trotskyite mob in Toronto that has been barred from school 
grounds.They would find that Alan Dutton the big anti-racist in B.C. 
was instrumental in getting grants for the ARA from Toronto Metro 
Council. He himself has received hundreds of thousand of dollars in 
grants from government, which finances the anti-freedom movement. . 
They would also find that hotels have been bullied - terrorized might
be a more appropriate term - into not renting premises to groups of 
whom the Lethbridges and the Duttons disapprove.That happened in 
Surrey a couple of years ago when the late Pat Burns of radio fame 
was to have been the keynote speaker and I was to have spoken on Bill 
33, which has become B.C.'s Heresy Act. They would find that no less 
a person than the Attorney General of this province approved of what 
they were doing. They would find that the Duttons and Letbridges
act as advisers to the Attonery General. They would find that the
Alberta Human Rights Commission told a hotel in Edmonton not to give
space to a group that planned to discuss the Canadian Constitution.
They would also find that attempts have been made by the same people
to deny groups space in public libraries. The same Harry Abrams I 
mentioned a minute ago is a leader in that endeavor. He has asked the 
National Library Association to do that, using the trigger word "hate 
groups". But so far the libraries have refused to be panicked. And if
the media are too lazy to seek all that out by themselves, I can help 
them. Yes, that's the kind of stuff you should be doing, Oliver

What a waste of energy. Reminds me of 1945 when we said with a grin on
our face: : Und wir haben doch Gesiegt" (We still did win)

Only difference is. we did know that it was a sad situation. Perhaps you
could help people in need with your talent

Ken, Ken, Ken. You have to get a hold of yourself. This is not the end
of this world. There is still time to the year 2000. Posting everything
in one day will make you dizzy. I do not want to loose you before
September first.
When you like the magic word lying so much, why not get a sand box so
you can throw sand in the same time. Please do not piss in it. As your

Goldhagen.

This has been done already. Using words like THE Germans or THEY. Now a
Mister Daniel Goldhagen, Jewish professor in New York say’s that all
German have a pathological hatred of Jews and wrote a book about this
"Willing Executioners. You think this book will be banned in Canada for
promoting hatred? What would the reaction be if he wrote ALL JEWS ARE
CROOKS? One prominent Jew said; "The world should never stop to hate
Germans." In earlier times Christians said: The Jews killed Jesus.

I found you reference using ID number. However for a quick find the more
info the better.
Stealing words?  You do like people to find info. Quickly? Do you? Why
don’t you ask Collins about it. Here you are worried about Collins and
in
the same time you wish he is not around.

Here again is  Collins.

The following is the text of the speech made by the veteran journalist
Doug Collins after the forced cancellation of a free speech conference
in Oliver, British Columbia, slated for March 21, 1998, at Oliver's 
city hall. It is published here as a censorship-busting exercise in free
speech. 

=-=-=-=-=

Doug Collins:

These are extraordinary times in Canada. Dangerous ones, too. The attack
on freedom of speech is massive. It has been going on for many years,
beginning in 1971 when the federal hate laws were passed. I was covering
parliament at the time and saw it happen at first hand. Since then
situation has grown progressively worse. It has now reached the stage
where under the B.C. Human Rights Code a person could be taken before a
human rights tribunal for telling a Newfie joke. It just depends on
whether Ujjal Dosanjh and the provincial government want to go after
him; in other words, whether he is a sanctioned target - sanctioned by
the politically correct and pressure groups like Sol Littman's Simon
Wiesenthal Centre.

It's disappointing that the establishment media are suckers for
propaganda
put out by those groups. All that's needed for them to press the panic
button and produce scare headlines is for the usual trigger words to be
used - neo-Nazi, white supremacist, racist, anti-Semitic. The issues are
rarely debated. So they resort to calling people names. Meanwhile, real
reporting seems to be out of fashion, taking handouts is very much in
fashion. The stories in the Okanagan media have been good examples of
that, as was Thursday's scare story in the Globe & Mail. Call it the
spirit of the times. Forty years ago we saw another spirit of the times.
It was called McCarthyism. Anyone who wanted medicare could be demonized
and seen as a Communist. I lived through those times, too, but many of
today's media weren't around then. So let's forgive them, for they know
not what they do. But it's time some of them grew up.

In the United States none of the anti-free speech laws that decorate the
landscape in Canada would get to first base. They have a Constitution
that protects free expression. We don't. Our Charter of Rights and 
Freedoms is a leaky vessel, which is why teachers and others can be 
fired from their jobs for holding the wrong views. In this country, 
too, an author like David Irving can be arrested while making a dinner
speech about free speech, put into handcuffs, and deported on an 
immigration pretext - while many killers and crooks of all kinds are 
allowed to remain here and while Asian gangs roam Vancouver on drive-by
shootings. That's something else the people of Oliver might think about
when they sign petitions asking the Attorney General in effect to go 
after Mr. Klatt for running an Internet service. But once again, let's
not blame them. They are victims of a massive propaganda campaign. 
That's what I was getting at when I wrote that famous or infamous 
column on Hollywood Propaganda. 

My interest in freedom of speech began a long time ago. When Ernst
Zundel was prosecuted for "spreading false news" in 1985 I appeared 
for the defence. I had never heard of the guy but it was
incomprehensible
to me that a man could be prosecuted for spreading false news. As I told
the court, Santa Claus spreads false news, the weatherman spreads false
news,and any reporter who has ever reported what a politician has had 
to say is probably spreading false news. Today's media are particularly 
good at spreading false news. The Globe & Mail story about this meeting 
that appeared on Thursday was liberally sprinkled with false news, as 
Oliver has good reason to know. In the Zundel case, of course, the 
Supreme Court of Canada agreed with me in the end and the false news law
was nixed.Littman can count himself lucky. 

But the anti-free speech experts were not discouraged. They invented
human rights commissions.The B.C. Human Rights Act, or Code, as it's 
called now,is a disgrace to the province and to the country. The 
Littmans think it's wonderful, of course, but they would, wouldn't 
they!.

I was charged under that Code. The Canadian Jewish Congress laid a
complaint against me after I'd written a column headed "Hollywood
Propaganda" in which I said that the six million holocaust figure was
nonsense, that the Jewish influence in Hollywood was predominant, and
that the move Schindler's List should have been called Swindler's List.
I said that because the man's own wife denounced him as a swindler, 
and she should know. As for who runs Hollywood, only last Sunday a 
two-hour program was shown on network TV called "Hollywoodism," which
confirmed my view in spades. I also stated in the column that I was 
tired of hate literature in the form of films, and that Schindler's 
List had to be the 555th. movie on the same subject. Think about 
that, when the Littmans and the Canadian Jewish Congress fulminate 
about hate literature. How would you feel if you were a German born 
long after Hitler was dead and you were reminded every day that your
grandfather did the wrong thing? Ask yourselves how you would feel if
you were a young German, being told by Daniel Goldhagen, a Jewish 
professor in New York, that Germans have a pathological hatred of Jews?
That's what he did in his book Hitler's Willing Executioners. Isn't 
that hate literature? But there's not much fuss about that. The book 
is freely available in Canada, while books to which the pressure groups
object are not. They are stopped at the border.

Reverse the Goldhagen thing and consider what the reaction would be if
someone wrote a book claiming that all Jews are crooks. What it boils
down to of course is that one man's Hitler is another man's Hemingway.

It's now over half a century since the war ended but from what see on TV
and you get in the media you might think it ended two weeks ago. 
As it happens, I know a lot more about Nazis than most of my critics do.
I was a prisoner of war in Germany until I escaped. I saw Bergen Belsen
concentration camp on the way up through Germany in 1945 after I had
rejoined the forces, and for some years after the war I was a Political
Intelligence Officer working on the de-Nazification of Germany. In
short,I have seen a lot of real Nazis, not just the ersatz types of 
which Sol Littman and that Communist academic David Lethbridge of 
Salmon Arm are so oncerned about.

In Lethbridge's case, at least, he seems to be quite UNconcerned about
the many more millions who died under communism. I might also say that
even if I was wrong, and I wasn't, in a democracy we are supposed to
have
the right to be wrong. Or is that now also out of fashion, with a
Ministry
of Truth headed by Littman and Co.? If so, then Oliver would have to be
the
Hate Capital of Canada and I would have to be an agent for
neo-Nazis,which
is what he called me on television. And speaking of television, it's
one thing to denounce people from a distance and quite another to face
them in debate. I debated free speech for an hour with Littman on CBC
Newsworld and in the viewer poll that was taken 73% voted for me and for
free speech.

As for that rights tribunal I faced, even a carefully selected
adjudicator had to dismiss the case. No hate here, as the North Shore 
News headline put it. And why did she throw out the complaint? Not, in 
my opinion, because she would not have liked to find me guilty, but 
because she knew that if the case had gone to court the complaint would 
have been found to be unconstitutional. Why? Because the B.C. Human
Rights
Code is a Heresy Act, pure and simple. A Heresy Act, which is one reason 
why I am here today, Mr. Attorney General Ujjal Dosanjh. Here are the 
facts: Under that law, truth is no defence; fair comment is not a
defence,
as it is with libel and slander; publication in the public
interest is not a defence, innocent intent is not a defence, and even
work done for scientific purposes is not a defence. 

Let me repeat what the lawyer for the B.C. Press Council said: this is a
law that attempts to stifle speech that is not criminal. That's where
we're at in B.C.

On top of all that the government itself can make its own complaints to
its own Human Rights Commission even when no complaint has been entered
by a third party. So they can get you going and coming even if no-one
else
wants to. Talk about Big Brother and George Orwell's 1984! Fortunately,
we still have courts in this country that can strike down the acts of 
these would-be dictators. In 1938 the Alberta Press Act was struck down,
just as the false news law was later. But the intent of the politicians 
who pass such laws is the same as it is in the dictatorships. 

But while the courts cogitate, speech in Canada is not free at all. It
comes at a price, which is why I no longer sing the national anthem. We
are not the True North Strong and Free. When we revert to being strong
and free I'll start singing again. In my case the defence of a free 
press has cost the North Shore News well over $200,000. Others, like 
Mr.Fromm,have been hounded from their jobs. But there is a bright side
to this. In the case of the North Shore News the public has subscribed 
nearly $150,000 to its defence fund, which shows that you can't fool 
all the people all the time.

It's not over, though. A man describing himself in his complaint as "a
Jewish person" - Harry Abrams, the founder of B'Nai Brith in Victoria -
has launched another action against me with those rights experts over
there who are led by that leather-clad lesbian, Mary Woo Sims, the chief
commissioner. He complains about six columns, including the Hollywood
propaganda column that was dismissed in the first tribunal. Double
jeopardy? What's that? Let's have a rematch, they say. 

Instead of waiting for handouts from Littman and Lethbridge about white
supremacists and other bogeymen, the media should take the trouble to
examine what's going on. Lethbridge and other free speech artists
screamed that this meeting should be stopped. So it was. Only meetings 
of which he approved would be allowed. He's a fascist of the Left. Yet 
the media quote him as if he were an oracle. 

If they did take a look at things, the media would find a firm link
between the politically correct of the militant left and government, who
are often one and the same, as in B.C. They would find that Lethbridge
was a key speaker at, and organizer of, the pro-violence Anti-Racist 
Action Trotskyite mob in Toronto that has been barred from school 
grounds.They would find that Alan Dutton the big anti-racist in B.C. 
was instrumental in getting grants for the ARA from Toronto Metro 
Council. He himself has received hundreds of thousand of dollars in 
grants from government, which finances the anti-freedom movement. . 
They would also find that hotels have been bullied - terrorized might
be a more appropriate term - into not renting premises to groups of 
whom the Lethbridges and the Duttons disapprove.That happened in 
Surrey a couple of years ago when the late Pat Burns of radio fame 
was to have been the keynote speaker and I was to have spoken on Bill 
33, which has become B.C.'s Heresy Act. They would find that no less 
a person than the Attorney General of this province approved of what 
they were doing. They would find that the Duttons and Letbridges
act as advisers to the Attonery General. They would find that the
Alberta Human Rights Commission told a hotel in Edmonton not to give
space to a group that planned to discuss the Canadian Constitution.
They would also find that attempts have been made by the same people
to deny groups space in public libraries. The same Harry Abrams I 
mentioned a minute ago is a leader in that endeavor. He has asked the 
National Library Association to do that, using the trigger word "hate 
groups". But so far the libraries have refused to be panicked. And if
the media are too lazy to seek all that out by themselves, I can help 
them. Yes, that's the kind of stuff you should be doing, Oliver
Chronicle,
Penticton Herald, Globe and Mail, Vancouver Sun, CBC and all the rest of
you. You don't do it, but I can tell you again this: I'm old enough to 
have seen all this happen before.

What's going on is really no different in spirit from what the
Brownshirts got up to in Nazi Germany. In Nazi Germany, it was enough 
to shout Jew, Communist or Socialist. Today in Canada it's enough to 
shout white supremacist, neo-Nazi, and anti-Semite. The ideologies are
different but the spirit is the same. A word or two about the Internet.
The Internet is seen by the Littmans as a threat. How dreadful that 
people can actually send out messages to the world without their having 
to go through the filter of a press dominated by the poltivally correct.
So - kill the Internet, and if the Internet can’t be killed then ruin 
anyone, like Mr. Klatt, who doesn't take orders and won't act as a
censor.
I should point out here that I have seen nothing of what the Littmans
and
Co are bitching about, nor have most of the media who echo what Littman 
says. I had never even heard of the Charlemagne Hammerheads before this 
affair blew up and I have never had lunch with a skinhead, ans what they
are supposed to be saying is certainly not my cup of tea.But I'll tell
you
something. I can be my own censor, thanks very much. I don't need
Littman's 
help.The same option is open to all Internet users. But Littman can't
trust
the public. He wants to treat people like children, while yelling about 
discrimination. To which I say, physician, heal thyself. 

Yes, the idea is to kill the Internet, or at least the controversial
voices on it that Littman doesn't like. And of course there are nasty
voices on it, although I've never bothered to tune in to them. But don't
be fooled by the idea that Littman's censorship would end with stopping
them. Let me give you an example of what I mean. When the Barrett
government got going on its human rights program in the early 1970s we
were told that all they wanted to do was to ensure fair play in hiring
and housing. But these things begin small and end large, and today human
rights commissions in this country are a menace to human rights. Rights
have become wrongs, and in today in B.C. the human rights gang is a
direct threat to freedom of the press. 

It is also said that you can learn how to make bombs on the Internet. So
you can. But you can also learn how to make bombs by other means. The
left-wing Squamish Five didn't need any Internet to learn how to make
and explode bombs in the 1980s, and people intent on making bombs today
don't need the Internet either.

When Winston Churchill lost the British election in 1945, he said,
"Trust the people." I follow that precept and it's my hope that in 
spite of the demonization of dissidents that ‘s going on now, 
Canadians will hold steady. We've been through crazy times before
and survived, and I'm here today in the expectation that we'll survive
this one. 

Meanwhile, Mayor Larson should put on her thinking cap instead of
pandering to the Littmans and giving way to bullies. Then there's
councillor Terry Shafer. He has said that the matter of this meeting is
a tough issue, particularly when the veterans are celebrating the 
creation of Canadian Legion here. They fought, he said so as to allow 
us the privilege of expressing our opinions, NO MATTER HOW AWFUL 
THOSE OPINIONS MAY BE.

What do you know about those opinions, councillor? Have you heard or
read any of them or are you taking the time from Littman and Lethbridge?
And what about your local Liberal MLA, Bill Barisoff? Has he had
anything
critical to say about the NDP's Heresy Law? If he has I must have been
snoozing. But he's reported as telling Litttman he'd be happy to work
with him to ensure that hate literature that violates the Criminal Code
does not appear anywhere in Canada. Does he take Littman's word for what
hate literature is? If you ask me, he's a bit like the Red Queen in
Alice
in Wonderland who said, sentence first, trial later. 

I'll leave you with a couple of other thoughts. A columnist said in
print last year that I give free speech a bad name. I replied by
pointing
out that free speech has always had a bad name. Free speech had a bad
name
when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of Wittingen
cathedral. It had a bad name when John Tyndale was burned at the stake
for translating the Bible into English. It had a bad name when John
Milton
wrote that truth and falsehood should grapple freely. It had a bad name
when the Ayatolla in Iran proclaimed a death sentence on Salman Rushdie,
and when the communists were up before the un-American Activities
Committee. It had a bad name two thousand years ago, when a man called
Jesus was nailed to the cross. One might almost say that free speech has
NEVER had a GOOD name, and thanks to the Littmans and the Lethbridges
and others like them free speech certainly has a bad name today. As I
mentioned earlier, if you are for free speech you are a neo-Nazi, a
crypto-Nazi, a white supremacist, or an anti-Semite. 

This sort of thing is not confined to Canada. It exists right across the
Western world. In Australia, Terry Lane, a well-known print and radio
commentator got into trouble with the local Littmans and wrote a letter
to the Australian Jewish News in 1992 in which he stated the following:

"The Zionist lobby in this country is malicious, implacable, mendacious
and dangerous. What's more, once the expression anti-Semitism hits the
air, or, heaven forfend, the sacred six million is uttered...we are
thrown to the jackals. I surrender. To the Zionists I say, you win. 
To the Palestinians, forgive my cowardice." 

In 1938, the Supreme Court of Canada had this to say when it struck down
the Alberta Press Act:

"Freedom of discussion is essential to enlighten public opinion in a
democratic state. It cannot be curtailed without affecting the right of
people to be informed, independent of government, concerning matters of
public interest. There must be untrammelled publication of news and
opinion." UNTRAMMELLED! It stated further that if the Social Credit law
were allowed to stand, the Socred doctrine would become a kind of
religious dogma that the people would buck at their peril. 

If the Littmans and other critics have their way, their dogmas would
become a kind of religion, too, that we would buck at our peril, and we
are already are buckinjg at our peril. So I say to hell with them, and
you can quote me. How about it, Mayor Larson and others who are running
for cover? How about it, Bill Barisoff? I can tell you where you should
stand. You should be standing right here with the rest of us, not
passing
by on the other side of the street. I will conclude by saying that I am 
77 years of age, that I defended freedom in the 1940s when Hitler was on
the loose, in the 1950s when McCarthy was on the loose, in the 1970s
when
the federal hate laws were passed, in the 1990s when those idiots in 
Victoria passed their misnamed Human Rights Act, and that I shall go on 
defending freedom until the day I die.

Thank you.

Thanks. Now perhaps we can go to address the real issues of this world.
That his hunger, starvation discrimination and hate.

I must say however that I am at times partly to blame for your
difficulty in understanding me. my thought processes and reasoning are
not always the same as some Canadians have. Many times people have the
impression that I must be opposed at all cost because what I am GOING to
say must be wrong.

People at times do or can not understand that when I had an disagreement
with a person, that I am still agree with him on issues we have a common
ground.

I hope that you have no hard feelings and we can talk again. As for my
part, I was always ready and willing to listen to both sides.

How come that this are lies about Jews when there is so much evidence
to support my view on this. How much is there in the news about the
gypsies, and other undesired people? How come there is practical nothing
in the news. When I say that in all this years there was only one wheel
who got all the grease than it the Jewish group. Take for example Israel
and how the treat the Palestinians. If any other nation would do some
thing like this, especial any left leaning government, there would be an
embargo and a horrendous  propaganda against this state. I could almost
say there is no beep about Israel and the Palestinians in the news media
about this today. How come? Is it possible that the press has been so
much under pressure to say as little as possible  about this?

Talking about lying about you. Frankly speaking, your statements about
you being against censorship means nothing. All you can tell me that I
am wrong in my assertion about you. You see if you would not have any
association and sympathy with your backers than it would be a different
story. You can say whatever you want but the perception will always be
there. That is politics. Take a look how Dave Barrett he is looked at by
the news media. It would make no difference how clean he is and sincere
but the perception is what counts at he end. So you better learn to live
with it. Finally it is not what you are saying but what you do or will
do that what counts and I can tell you the jury is still out on this.

What I do like about the Jews? The do not try to convert me to their

You consider that when I do not agree with your statements that I must
be lying. All you can say that I am wrong in this. That is the proper
word for this. It would be different if you said; Yes Ken told me that
he is for censorship.

What would be the results or the purpose to discredit someone?.

I said many times to McVay that when I use the word "YOU"  or "YOU
GUY’S" that I do not necessarily mean him in person but a group of
people he is associated with. There is no thought in my mind that his
supporters are silencing people. One only has to take a look at Sol
Littman, B'nai Brith's  and others who were successful in shutting web
sides  and service providers down. It does not matter what methods the 
used, it is the end result what counts.

How true. From all the Canadian and British war veterans I meet, there
was not one who hated Germans. I must point out that all had one thing
in common. This were soldiers who were in battle and gone through hard
times themselves. Most of them were my best friends. It seems to me that
soldiers who sort off were working in administration, never fired a shot
liked to represent themselves as the biggest fighter looking for
revenge.

Sad part is that in this news groups there are so many people sitting on
their computer, not a peep coming out of their mouth. Is this the way to
contribute for a free society?? Shame on you!

Mister Hall. There were many time we were on the opposite side of the
fence. You have your view and I have mine. We however both have one
thing in common. You and I never once were trying to silence each other,
no matter how much we fought each other.

The people, you BOY are pulling your foreskin back for them. 

The following is the text of the speech made by the veteran journalist
Doug Collins after the forced cancellation of a free speech conference
in Oliver, British Columbia, slated for March 21, 1998, at Oliver's 
city hall. It is published here as a censorship-busting exercise in free
speech. 

=-=-=-=-=

Doug Collins:

These are extraordinary times in Canada. Dangerous ones, too. The attack
on freedom of speech is massive. It has been going on for many years,
beginning in 1971 when the federal hate laws were passed. I was covering
parliament at the time and saw it happen at first hand. Since then
situation has grown progressively worse. It has now reached the stage
where under the B.C. Human Rights Code a person could be taken before a
human rights tribunal for telling a Newfie joke. It just depends on
whether Ujjal Dosanjh and the provincial government want to go after
him; in other words, whether he is a sanctioned target - sanctioned by
the politically correct and pressure groups like Sol Littman's Simon
Wiesenthal Centre.

It's disappointing that the establishment media are suckers for
propaganda
put out by those groups. All that's needed for them to press the panic
button and produce scare headlines is for the usual trigger words to be
used - neo-Nazi, white supremacist, racist, anti-Semitic. The issues are
rarely debated. So they resort to calling people names. Meanwhile, real
reporting seems to be out of fashion, taking handouts is very much in
fashion. The stories in the Okanagan media have been good examples of
that, as was Thursday's scare story in the Globe & Mail. Call it the
spirit of the times. Forty years ago we saw another spirit of the times.
It was called McCarthyism. Anyone who wanted medicare could be demonized
and seen as a Communist. I lived through those times, too, but many of
today's media weren't around then. So let's forgive them, for they know
not what they do. But it's time some of them grew up.

In the United States none of the anti-free speech laws that decorate the
landscape in Canada would get to first base. They have a Constitution
that protects free expression. We don't. Our Charter of Rights and 
Freedoms is a leaky vessel, which is why teachers and others can be 
fired from their jobs for holding the wrong views. In this country, 
too, an author like David Irving can be arrested while making a dinner
speech about free speech, put into handcuffs, and deported on an 
immigration pretext - while many killers and crooks of all kinds are 
allowed to remain here and while Asian gangs roam Vancouver on drive-by
shootings. That's something else the people of Oliver might think about
when they sign petitions asking the Attorney General in effect to go 
after Mr. Klatt for running an Internet service. But once again, let's
not blame them. They are victims of a massive propaganda campaign. 
That's what I was getting at when I wrote that famous or infamous 
column on Hollywood Propaganda. 

My interest in freedom of speech began a long time ago. When Ernst
Zundel was prosecuted for "spreading false news" in 1985 I appeared 
for the defence. I had never heard of the guy but it was
incomprehensible
to me that a man could be prosecuted for spreading false news. As I told
the court, Santa Claus spreads false news, the weatherman spreads false
news,and any reporter who has ever reported what a politician has had 
to say is probably spreading false news. Today's media are particularly 
good at spreading false news. The Globe & Mail story about this meeting 
that appeared on Thursday was liberally sprinkled with false news, as 
Oliver has good reason to know. In the Zundel case, of course, the 
Supreme Court of Canada agreed with me in the end and the false news law
was nixed.Littman can count himself lucky. 

But the anti-free speech experts were not discouraged. They invented
human rights commissions.The B.C. Human Rights Act, or Code, as it's 
called now,is a disgrace to the province and to the country. The 
Littmans think it's wonderful, of course, but they would, wouldn't 
they!.

I was charged under that Code. The Canadian Jewish Congress laid a
complaint against me after I'd written a column headed "Hollywood
Propaganda" in which I said that the six million holocaust figure was
nonsense, that the Jewish influence in Hollywood was predominant, and
that the move Schindler's List should have been called Swindler's List.
I said that because the man's own wife denounced him as a swindler, 
and she should know. As for who runs Hollywood, only last Sunday a 
two-hour program was shown on network TV called "Hollywoodism," which
confirmed my view in spades. I also stated in the column that I was 
tired of hate literature in the form of films, and that Schindler's 
List had to be the 555th. movie on the same subject. Think about 
that, when the Littmans and the Canadian Jewish Congress fulminate 
about hate literature. How would you feel if you were a German born 
long after Hitler was dead and you were reminded every day that your
grandfather did the wrong thing? Ask yourselves how you would feel if
you were a young German, being told by Daniel Goldhagen, a Jewish 
professor in New York, that Germans have a pathological hatred of Jews?
That's what he did in his book Hitler's Willing Executioners. Isn't 
that hate literature? But there's not much fuss about that. The book 
is freely available in Canada, while books to which the pressure groups
object are not. They are stopped at the border.

Reverse the Goldhagen thing and consider what the reaction would be if
someone wrote a book claiming that all Jews are crooks. What it boils
down to of course is that one man's Hitler is another man's Hemingway.

It's now over half a century since the war ended but from what see on TV
and you get in the media you might think it ended two weeks ago. 
As it happens, I know a lot more about Nazis than most of my critics do.
I was a prisoner of war in Germany until I escaped. I saw Bergen Belsen
concentration camp on the way up through Germany in 1945 after I had
rejoined the forces, and for some years after the war I was a Political
Intelligence Officer working on the de-Nazification of Germany. In
short,I have seen a lot of real Nazis, not just the ersatz types of 
which Sol Littman and that Communist academic David Lethbridge of 
Salmon Arm are so oncerned about.

In Lethbridge's case, at least, he seems to be quite UNconcerned about
the many more millions who died under communism. I might also say that
even if I was wrong, and I wasn't, in a democracy we are supposed to
have
the right to be wrong. Or is that now also out of fashion, with a
Ministry
of Truth headed by Littman and Co.? If so, then Oliver would have to be
the
Hate Capital of Canada and I would have to be an agent for
neo-Nazis,which
is what he called me on television. And speaking of television, it's
one thing to denounce people from a distance and quite another to face
them in debate. I debated free speech for an hour with Littman on CBC
Newsworld and in the viewer poll that was taken 73% voted for me and for
free speech.

As for that rights tribunal I faced, even a carefully selected
adjudicator had to dismiss the case. No hate here, as the North Shore 
News headline put it. And why did she throw out the complaint? Not, in 
my opinion, because she would not have liked to find me guilty, but 
because she knew that if the case had gone to court the complaint would 
have been found to be unconstitutional. Why? Because the B.C. Human
Rights
Code is a Heresy Act, pure and simple. A Heresy Act, which is one reason 
why I am here today, Mr. Attorney General Ujjal Dosanjh. Here are the 
facts: Under that law, truth is no defence; fair comment is not a
defence,
as it is with libel and slander; publication in the public
interest is not a defence, innocent intent is not a defence, and even
work done for scientific purposes is not a defence. 

Let me repeat what the lawyer for the B.C. Press Council said: this is a
law that attempts to stifle speech that is not criminal. That's where
we're at in B.C.

On top of all that the government itself can make its own complaints to
its own Human Rights Commission even when no complaint has been entered
by a third party. So they can get you going and coming even if no-one
else
wants to. Talk about Big Brother and George Orwell's 1984! Fortunately,
we still have courts in this country that can strike down the acts of 
these would-be dictators. In 1938 the Alberta Press Act was struck down,
just as the false news law was later. But the intent of the politicians 
who pass such laws is the same as it is in the dictatorships. 

But while the courts cogitate, speech in Canada is not free at all. It
comes at a price, which is why I no longer sing the national anthem. We
are not the True North Strong and Free. When we revert to being strong
and free I'll start singing again. In my case the defence of a free 
press has cost the North Shore News well over $200,000. Others, like 
Mr.Fromm,have been hounded from their jobs. But there is a bright side
to this. In the case of the North Shore News the public has subscribed 
nearly $150,000 to its defence fund, which shows that you can't fool 
all the people all the time.

It's not over, though. A man describing himself in his complaint as "a
Jewish person" - Harry Abrams, the founder of B'Nai Brith in Victoria -
has launched another action against me with those rights experts over
there who are led by that leather-clad lesbian, Mary Woo Sims, the chief
commissioner. He complains about six columns, including the Hollywood
propaganda column that was dismissed in the first tribunal. Double
jeopardy? What's that? Let's have a rematch, they say. 

Instead of waiting for handouts from Littman and Lethbridge about white
supremacists and other bogeymen, the media should take the trouble to
examine what's going on. Lethbridge and other free speech artists
screamed that this meeting should be stopped. So it was. Only meetings 
of which he approved would be allowed. He's a fascist of the Left. Yet 
the media quote him as if he were an oracle. 

If they did take a look at things, the media would find a firm link
between the politically correct of the militant left and government, who
are often one and the same, as in B.C. They would find that Lethbridge
was a key speaker at, and organizer of, the pro-violence Anti-Racist 
Action Trotskyite mob in Toronto that has been barred from school 
grounds.They would find that Alan Dutton the big anti-racist in B.C. 
was instrumental in getting grants for the ARA from Toronto Metro 
Council. He himself has received hundreds of thousand of dollars in 
grants from government, which finances the anti-freedom movement. . 
They would also find that hotels have been bullied - terrorized might
be a more appropriate term - into not renting premises to groups of 
whom the Lethbridges and the Duttons disapprove.That happened in 
Surrey a couple of years ago when the late Pat Burns of radio fame 
was to have been the keynote speaker and I was to have spoken on Bill 
33, which has become B.C.'s Heresy Act. They would find that no less 
a person than the Attorney General of this province approved of what 
they were doing. They would find that the Duttons and Letbridges
act as advisers to the Attonery General. They would find that the
Alberta Human Rights Commission told a hotel in Edmonton not to give
space to a group that planned to discuss the Canadian Constitution.
They would also find that attempts have been made by the same people
to deny groups space in public libraries. The same Harry Abrams I 
mentioned a minute ago is a leader in that endeavor. He has asked the 
National Library Association to do that, using the trigger word "hate 
groups". But so far the libraries have refused to be panicked. And if
the media are too lazy to seek all that out by themselves, I can help 
them. Yes, that's the kind of stuff you should be doing, Oliver
Chronicle,
Penticton Herald, Globe and Mail, Vancouver Sun, CBC and all the rest of
you. You don't do it, but I can tell you again this: I'm old enough to 
have seen all this happen before.

What's going on is really no different in spirit from what the
Brownshirts got up to in Nazi Germany. In Nazi Germany, it was enough 
to shout Jew, Communist or Socialist. Today in Canada it's enough to 
shout white supremacist, neo-Nazi, and anti-Semite. The ideologies are
different but the spirit is the same. A word or two about the Internet.
The Internet is seen by the Littmans as a threat. How dreadful that 
people can actually send out messages to the world without their having 
to go through the filter of a press dominated by the poltivally correct.
So - kill the Internet, and if the Internet can’t be killed then ruin 
anyone, like Mr. Klatt, who doesn't take orders and won't act as a
censor.
I should point out here that I have seen nothing of what the Littmans
and
Co are bitching about, nor have most of the media who echo what Littman 
says. I had never even heard of the Charlemagne Hammerheads before this 
affair blew up and I have never had lunch with a skinhead, ans what they
are supposed to be saying is certainly not my cup of tea.But I'll tell
you
something. I can be my own censor, thanks very much. I don't need
Littman's 
help.The same option is open to all Internet users. But Littman can't
trust
the public. He wants to treat people like children, while yelling about 
discrimination. To which I say, physician, heal thyself. 

Yes, the idea is to kill the Internet, or at least the controversial
voices on it that Littman doesn't like. And of course there are nasty
voices on it, although I've never bothered to tune in to them. But don't
be fooled by the idea that Littman's censorship would end with stopping
them. Let me give you an example of what I mean. When the Barrett
government got going on its human rights program in the early 1970s we
were told that all they wanted to do was to ensure fair play in hiring
and housing. But these things begin small and end large, and today human
rights commissions in this country are a menace to human rights. Rights
have become wrongs, and in today in B.C. the human rights gang is a
direct threat to freedom of the press. 

It is also said that you can learn how to make bombs on the Internet. So
you can. But you can also learn how to make bombs by other means. The
left-wing Squamish Five didn't need any Internet to learn how to make
and explode bombs in the 1980s, and people intent on making bombs today
don't need the Internet either.

When Winston Churchill lost the British election in 1945, he said,
"Trust the people." I follow that precept and it's my hope that in 
spite of the demonization of dissidents that ‘s going on now, 
Canadians will hold steady. We've been through crazy times before
and survived, and I'm here today in the expectation that we'll survive
this one. 

Meanwhile, Mayor Larson should put on her thinking cap instead of
pandering to the Littmans and giving way to bullies. Then there's
councillor Terry Shafer. He has said that the matter of this meeting is
a tough issue, particularly when the veterans are celebrating the 
creation of Canadian Legion here. They fought, he said so as to allow 
us the privilege of expressing our opinions, NO MATTER HOW AWFUL 
THOSE OPINIONS MAY BE.

What do you know about those opinions, councillor? Have you heard or
read any of them or are you taking the time from Littman and Lethbridge?
And what about your local Liberal MLA, Bill Barisoff? Has he had
anything
critical to say about the NDP's Heresy Law? If he has I must have been
snoozing. But he's reported as telling Litttman he'd be happy to work
with him to ensure that hate literature that violates the Criminal Code
does not appear anywhere in Canada. Does he take Littman's word for what
hate literature is? If you ask me, he's a bit like the Red Queen in
Alice
in Wonderland who said, sentence first, trial later. 

I'll leave you with a couple of other thoughts. A columnist said in
print last year that I give free speech a bad name. I replied by
pointing
out that free speech has always had a bad name. Free speech had a bad
name
when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of Wittingen
cathedral. It had a bad name when John Tyndale was burned at the stake
for translating the Bible into English. It had a bad name when John
Milton
wrote that truth and falsehood should grapple freely. It had a bad name
when the Ayatolla in Iran proclaimed a death sentence on Salman Rushdie,
and when the communists were up before the un-American Activities
Committee. It had a bad name two thousand years ago, when a man called
Jesus was nailed to the cross. One might almost say that free speech has
NEVER had a GOOD name, and thanks to the Littmans and the Lethbridges
and others like them free speech certainly has a bad name today. As I
mentioned earlier, if you are for free speech you are a neo-Nazi, a
crypto-Nazi, a white supremacist, or an anti-Semite. 

This sort of thing is not confined to Canada. It exists right across the
Western world. In Australia, Terry Lane, a well-known print and radio
commentator got into trouble with the local Littmans and wrote a letter
to the Australian Jewish News in 1992 in which he stated the following:

"The Zionist lobby in this country is malicious, implacable, mendacious
and dangerous. What's more, once the expression anti-Semitism hits the
air, or, heaven forfend, the sacred six million is uttered...we are
thrown to the jackals. I surrender. To the Zionists I say, you win. 
To the Palestinians, forgive my cowardice." 

In 1938, the Supreme Court of Canada had this to say when it struck down
the Alberta Press Act:

"Freedom of discussion is essential to enlighten public opinion in a
democratic state. It cannot be curtailed without affecting the right of
people to be informed, independent of government, concerning matters of
public interest. There must be untrammelled publication of news and
opinion." UNTRAMMELLED! It stated further that if the Social Credit law
were allowed to stand, the Socred doctrine would become a kind of
religious dogma that the people would buck at their peril. 

If the Littmans and other critics have their way, their dogmas would
become a kind of religion, too, that we would buck at our peril, and we
are already are buckinjg at our peril. So I say to hell with them, and
you can quote me. How about it, Mayor Larson and others who are running
for cover? How about it, Bill Barisoff? I can tell you where you should
stand. You should be standing right here with the rest of us, not
passing
by on the other side of the street. I will conclude by saying that I am 
77 years of age, that I defended freedom in the 1940s when Hitler was on

This is exactly what Mr.Colins has done. He is talking about the lag of
the press in their responsibility.

Mister Ernest Zundel is not questioning the holocaust. What he is
questioning is the mass scale. Because of this he has been charged for
spreading false news. Chances are if he had singled out any other group
of people, nothing would have happened. Today I can say that I do not
believe in the birth of Jesus Christ and will not be charged with
spreading hate. If I would make any smart remarks about Jews, this would
come under the hate law. By the way Zundel won his case.

Let me tell you that today in Germany they have laws to prevent me and
others from saying anything in public what the Government forbids you to
say. Would you like to have GAG laws in the USA?

GG Art. 139
[Weitergeltung der Entnazifizierungsvorschriften]
Die zur "Befreiung des deutschen Volkes vom Nationalsozialismus und
Militarismus" erlassenen Rechtsvorschriften werden von den Bestimmungen
dieses Grundgesetzes nicht berührt.

Wer versucht die während der Nazizeit von Gestapo, SS, Wehrmacht, Firmen
und den vielen 'ganz normalen' Deutschen begangenen Verbrechen zu
leugnen, Vergessen oder Klein zu machen, kann sich nicht auf
freiheitliche Rechte  berufen, da er zwar deren Einhaltung einfordert,
selbst aber nicht danach  
handelt.

Mit Freiheitsstrafe bis zu fünf Jahren oder mit Geldstrafe wird
bestraft, wer eine unter der Herrschaft des Nationalsozialismus
begangene Handlung der in 220 Abs. 1 bezeichneten Art in einer Weise,
die geeignet ist, den öffentlichen Frieden zu stören, öffentlich oder in
einer Versammlung billigt, leugnet oder verharmlost.

Get somebody to translate this into English. What it says that you can
go to jail if you forget what happen.

We need more people like Collins here in Canada as anywhere else do
defend our freedom of speech.

Finally a quote from Nick in Greece.

Here is what Nick from Greece wrote:
History is truly written by the victor, regardless of nationality. The
victors were the Americans for so many years. As such it comes as no
surprise that so many Germans would adopt American political correctness
in their dealings with their own history. This is a scary concept when
one thinks that there must be two sides to every story.

I felt SORRY for myself because I had no shoes, until I met the man who

The people, you BOY are pulling your foreskin back for them. 

The following is the text of the speech made by the veteran journalist
Doug Collins after the forced cancellation of a free speech conference
in Oliver, British Columbia, slated for March 21, 1998, at Oliver's 
city hall. It is published here as a censorship-busting exercise in free
speech. 

=-=-=-=-=

Doug Collins:

These are extraordinary times in Canada. Dangerous ones, too. The attack
on freedom of speech is massive. It has been going on for many years,
beginning in 1971 when the federal hate laws were passed. I was covering
parliament at the time and saw it happen at first hand. Since then
situation has grown progressively worse. It has now reached the stage
where under the B.C. Human Rights Code a person could be taken before a
human rights tribunal for telling a Newfie joke. It just depends on
whether Ujjal Dosanjh and the provincial government want to go after
him; in other words, whether he is a sanctioned target - sanctioned by
the politically correct and pressure groups like Sol Littman's Simon
Wiesenthal Centre.

It's disappointing that the establishment media are suckers for
propaganda
put out by those groups. All that's needed for them to press the panic
button and produce scare headlines is for the usual trigger words to be
used - neo-Nazi, white supremacist, racist, anti-Semitic. The issues are
rarely debated. So they resort to calling people names. Meanwhile, real
reporting seems to be out of fashion, taking handouts is very much in
fashion. The stories in the Okanagan media have been good examples of
that, as was Thursday's scare story in the Globe & Mail. Call it the
spirit of the times. Forty years ago we saw another spirit of the times.
It was called McCarthyism. Anyone who wanted medicare could be demonized
and seen as a Communist. I lived through those times, too, but many of
today's media weren't around then. So let's forgive them, for they know
not what they do. But it's time some of them grew up.

In the United States none of the anti-free speech laws that decorate the
landscape in Canada would get to first base. They have a Constitution
that protects free expression. We don't. Our Charter of Rights and 
Freedoms is a leaky vessel, which is why teachers and others can be 
fired from their jobs for holding the wrong views. In this country, 
too, an author like David Irving can be arrested while making a dinner
speech about free speech, put into handcuffs, and deported on an 
immigration pretext - while many killers and crooks of all kinds are 
allowed to remain here and while Asian gangs roam Vancouver on drive-by
shootings. That's something else the people of Oliver might think about
when they sign petitions asking the Attorney General in effect to go 
after Mr. Klatt for running an Internet service. But once again, let's
not blame them. They are victims of a massive propaganda campaign. 
That's what I was getting at when I wrote that famous or infamous 
column on Hollywood Propaganda. 

My interest in freedom of speech began a long time ago. When Ernst
Zundel was prosecuted for "spreading false news" in 1985 I appeared 
for the defence. I had never heard of the guy but it was
incomprehensible
to me that a man could be prosecuted for spreading false news. As I told
the court, Santa Claus spreads false news, the weatherman spreads false
news,and any reporter who has ever reported what a politician has had 
to say is probably spreading false news. Today's media are particularly 
good at spreading false news. The Globe & Mail story about this meeting 
that appeared on Thursday was liberally sprinkled with false news, as 
Oliver has good reason to know. In the Zundel case, of course, the 
Supreme Court of Canada agreed with me in the end and the false news law
was nixed.Littman can count himself lucky. 

But the anti-free speech experts were not discouraged. They invented
human rights commissions.The B.C. Human Rights Act, or Code, as it's 
called now,is a disgrace to the province and to the country. The 
Littmans think it's wonderful, of course, but they would, wouldn't 
they!.

I was charged under that Code. The Canadian Jewish Congress laid a
complaint against me after I'd written a column headed "Hollywood
Propaganda" in which I said that the six million holocaust figure was
nonsense, that the Jewish influence in Hollywood was predominant, and
that the move Schindler's List should have been called Swindler's List.
I said that because the man's own wife denounced him as a swindler, 
and she should know. As for who runs Hollywood, only last Sunday a 
two-hour program was shown on network TV called "Hollywoodism," which
confirmed my view in spades. I also stated in the column that I was 
tired of hate literature in the form of films, and that Schindler's 
List had to be the 555th. movie on the same subject. Think about 
that, when the Littmans and the Canadian Jewish Congress fulminate 
about hate literature. How would you feel if you were a German born 
long after Hitler was dead and you were reminded every day that your
grandfather did the wrong thing? Ask yourselves how you would feel if
you were a young German, being told by Daniel Goldhagen, a Jewish 
professor in New York, that Germans have a pathological hatred of Jews?
That's what he did in his book Hitler's Willing Executioners. Isn't 
that hate literature? But there's not much fuss about that. The book 
is freely available in Canada, while books to which the pressure groups
object are not. They are stopped at the border.

Reverse the Goldhagen thing and consider what the reaction would be if
someone wrote a book claiming that all Jews are crooks. What it boils
down to of course is that one man's Hitler is another man's Hemingway.

It's now over half a century since the war ended but from what see on TV
and you get in the media you might think it ended two weeks ago. 
As it happens, I know a lot more about Nazis than most of my critics do.
I was a prisoner of war in Germany until I escaped. I saw Bergen Belsen
concentration camp on the way up through Germany in 1945 after I had
rejoined the forces, and for some years after the war I was a Political
Intelligence Officer working on the de-Nazification of Germany. In
short,I have seen a lot of real Nazis, not just the ersatz types of 
which Sol Littman and that Communist academic David Lethbridge of 
Salmon Arm are so oncerned about.

In Lethbridge's case, at least, he seems to be quite UNconcerned about
the many more millions who died under communism. I might also say that
even if I was wrong, and I wasn't, in a democracy we are supposed to
have
the right to be wrong. Or is that now also out of fashion, with a
Ministry
of Truth headed by Littman and Co.? If so, then Oliver would have to be
the
Hate Capital of Canada and I would have to be an agent for
neo-Nazis,which
is what he called me on television. And speaking of television, it's
one thing to denounce people from a distance and quite another to face
them in debate. I debated free speech for an hour with Littman on CBC
Newsworld and in the viewer poll that was taken 73% voted for me and for
free speech.

As for that rights tribunal I faced, even a carefully selected
adjudicator had to dismiss the case. No hate here, as the North Shore 
News headline put it. And why did she throw out the complaint? Not, in 
my opinion, because she would not have liked to find me guilty, but 
because she knew that if the case had gone to court the complaint would 
have been found to be unconstitutional. Why? Because the B.C. Human
Rights
Code is a Heresy Act, pure and simple. A Heresy Act, which is one reason 
why I am here today, Mr. Attorney General Ujjal Dosanjh. Here are the 
facts: Under that law, truth is no defence; fair comment is not a
defence,
as it is with libel and slander; publication in the public
interest is not a defence, innocent intent is not a defence, and even
work done for scientific purposes is not a defence. 

Let me repeat what the lawyer for the B.C. Press Council said: this is a
law that attempts to stifle speech that is not criminal. That's where
we're at in B.C.

On top of all that the government itself can make its own complaints to
its own Human Rights Commission even when no complaint has been entered
by a third party. So they can get you going and coming even if no-one
else
wants to. Talk about Big Brother and George Orwell's 1984! Fortunately,
we still have courts in this country that can strike down the acts of 
these would-be dictators. In 1938 the Alberta Press Act was struck down,
just as the false news law was later. But the intent of the politicians 
who pass such laws is the same as it is in the dictatorships. 

But while the courts cogitate, speech in Canada is not free at all. It
comes at a price, which is why I no longer sing the national anthem. We
are not the True North Strong and Free. When we revert to being strong
and free I'll start singing again. In my case the defence of a free 
press has cost the North Shore News well over $200,000. Others, like 
Mr.Fromm,have been hounded from their jobs. But there is a bright side
to this. In the case of the North Shore News the public has subscribed 
nearly $150,000 to its defence fund, which shows that you can't fool 
all the people all the time.

It's not over, though. A man describing himself in his complaint as "a
Jewish person" - Harry Abrams, the founder of B'Nai Brith in Victoria -
has launched another action against me with those rights experts over
there who are led by that leather-clad lesbian, Mary Woo Sims, the chief
commissioner. He complains about six columns, including the Hollywood
propaganda column that was dismissed in the first tribunal. Double
jeopardy? What's that? Let's have a rematch, they say. 

Instead of waiting for handouts from Littman and Lethbridge about white
supremacists and other bogeymen, the media should take the trouble to
examine what's going on. Lethbridge and other free speech artists
screamed that this meeting should be stopped. So it was. Only meetings 
of which he approved would be allowed. He's a fascist of the Left. Yet 
the media quote him as if he were an oracle. 

If they did take a look at things, the media would find a firm link
between the politically correct of the militant left and government, who
are often one and the same, as in B.C. They would find that Lethbridge
was a key speaker at, and organizer of, the pro-violence Anti-Racist 
Action Trotskyite mob in Toronto that has been barred from school 
grounds.They would find that Alan Dutton the big anti-racist in B.C. 
was instrumental in getting grants for the ARA from Toronto Metro 
Council. He himself has received hundreds of thousand of dollars in 
grants from government, which finances the anti-freedom movement. . 
They would also find that hotels have been bullied - terrorized might
be a more appropriate term - into not renting premises to groups of 
whom the Lethbridges and the Duttons disapprove.That happened in 
Surrey a couple of years ago when the late Pat Burns of radio fame 
was to have been the keynote speaker and I was to have spoken on Bill 
33, which has become B.C.'s Heresy Act. They would find that no less 
a person than the Attorney General of this province approved of what 
they were doing. They would find that the Duttons and Letbridges
act as advisers to the Attonery General. They would find that the
Alberta Human Rights Commission told a hotel in Edmonton not to give
space to a group that planned to discuss the Canadian Constitution.
They would also find that attempts have been made by the same people
to deny groups space in public libraries. The same Harry Abrams I 
mentioned a minute ago is a leader in that endeavor. He has asked the 
National Library Association to do that, using the trigger word "hate 
groups". But so far the libraries have refused to be panicked. And if
the media are too lazy to seek all that out by themselves, I can help 
them. Yes, that's the kind of stuff you should be doing, Oliver
Chronicle,
Penticton Herald, Globe and Mail, Vancouver Sun, CBC and all the rest of
you. You don't do it, but I can tell you again this: I'm old enough to 
have seen all this happen before.

What's going on is really no different in spirit from what the
Brownshirts got up to in Nazi Germany. In Nazi Germany, it was enough 
to shout Jew, Communist or Socialist. Today in Canada it's enough to 
shout white supremacist, neo-Nazi, and anti-Semite. The ideologies are
different but the spirit is the same. A word or two about the Internet.
The Internet is seen by the Littmans as a threat. How dreadful that 
people can actually send out messages to the world without their having 
to go through the filter of a press dominated by the poltivally correct.
So - kill the Internet, and if the Internet can’t be killed then ruin 
anyone, like Mr. Klatt, who doesn't take orders and won't act as a
censor.
I should point out here that I have seen nothing of what the Littmans
and
Co are bitching about, nor have most of the media who echo what Littman 
says. I had never even heard of the Charlemagne Hammerheads before this 
affair blew up and I have never had lunch with a skinhead, ans what they
are supposed to be saying is certainly not my cup of tea.But I'll tell
you
something. I can be my own censor, thanks very much. I don't need
Littman's 
help.The same option is open to all Internet users. But Littman can't
trust
the public. He wants to treat people like children, while yelling about 
discrimination. To which I say, physician, heal thyself. 

Yes, the idea is to kill the Internet, or at least the controversial
voices on it that Littman doesn't like. And of course there are nasty
voices on it, although I've never bothered to tune in to them. But don't
be fooled by the idea that Littman's censorship would end with stopping
them. Let me give you an example of what I mean. When the Barrett
government got going on its human rights program in the early 1970s we
were told that all they wanted to do was to ensure fair play in hiring
and housing. But these things begin small and end large, and today human
rights commissions in this country are a menace to human rights. Rights
have become wrongs, and in today in B.C. the human rights gang is a
direct threat to freedom of the press. 

It is also said that you can learn how to make bombs on the Internet. So
you can. But you can also learn how to make bombs by other means. The
left-wing Squamish Five didn't need any Internet to learn how to make
and explode bombs in the 1980s, and people intent on making bombs today
don't need the Internet either.

When Winston Churchill lost the British election in 1945, he said,
"Trust the people." I follow that precept and it's my hope that in 
spite of the demonization of dissidents that ‘s going on now, 
Canadians will hold steady. We've been through crazy times before
and survived, and I'm here today in the expectation that we'll survive
this one. 

Meanwhile, Mayor Larson should put on her thinking cap instead of
pandering to the Littmans and giving way to bullies. Then there's
councillor Terry Shafer. He has said that the matter of this meeting is
a tough issue, particularly when the veterans are celebrating the 
creation of Canadian Legion here. They fought, he said so as to allow 
us the privilege of expressing our opinions, NO MATTER HOW AWFUL 
THOSE OPINIONS MAY BE.

What do you know about those opinions, councillor? Have you heard or
read any of them or are you taking the time from Littman and Lethbridge?
And what about your local Liberal MLA, Bill Barisoff? Has he had
anything
critical to say about the NDP's Heresy Law? If he has I must have been
snoozing. But he's reported as telling Litttman he'd be happy to work
with him to ensure that hate literature that violates the Criminal Code
does not appear anywhere in Canada. Does he take Littman's word for what
hate literature is? If you ask me, he's a bit like the Red Queen in
Alice
in Wonderland who said, sentence first, trial later. 

I'll leave you with a couple of other thoughts. A columnist said in
print last year that I give free speech a bad name. I replied by
pointing
out that free speech has always had a bad name. Free speech had a bad
name
when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of Wittingen
cathedral. It had a bad name when John Tyndale was burned at the stake
for translating the Bible into English. It had a bad name when John
Milton
wrote that truth and falsehood should grapple freely. It had a bad name
when the Ayatolla in Iran proclaimed a death sentence on Salman Rushdie,
and when the communists were up before the un-American Activities
Committee. It had a bad name two thousand years ago, when a man called
Jesus was nailed to the cross. One might almost say that free speech has
NEVER had a GOOD name, and thanks to the Littmans and the Lethbridges
and others like them free speech certainly has a bad name today. As I
mentioned earlier, if you are for free speech you are a neo-Nazi, a
crypto-Nazi, a white supremacist, or an anti-Semite. 

This sort of thing is not confined to Canada. It exists right across the
Western world. In Australia, Terry Lane, a well-known print and radio
commentator got into trouble with the local Littmans and wrote a letter
to the Australian Jewish News in 1992 in which he stated the following:

"The Zionist lobby in this country is malicious, implacable, mendacious
and dangerous. What's more, once the expression anti-Semitism hits the
air, or, heaven forfend, the sacred six million is uttered...we are
thrown to the jackals. I surrender. To the Zionists I say, you win. 
To the Palestinians, forgive my cowardice." 

In 1938, the Supreme Court of Canada had this to say when it struck down
the Alberta Press Act:

"Freedom of discussion is essential to enlighten public opinion in a
democratic state. It cannot be curtailed without affecting the right of
people to be informed, independent of government, concerning matters of
public interest. There must be untrammelled publication of news and
opinion." UNTRAMMELLED! It stated further that if the Social Credit law
were allowed to stand, the Socred doctrine would become a kind of
religious dogma that the people would buck at their peril. 

If the Littmans and other critics have their way, their dogmas would
become a kind of religion, too, that we would buck at our peril, and we
are already are buckinjg at our peril. So I say to hell with them, and
you can quote me. How about it, Mayor Larson and others who are running
for cover? How about it, Bill Barisoff? I can tell you where you should
stand. You should be standing right here with the rest of us, not
passing
by on the other side of the street. I will conclude by saying that I am 
77 years of age, that I defended freedom in the 1940s when Hitler was on
the loose, in the 1950s when McCarthy was on the loose, in the 1970s
when
the federal hate laws were passed, in the 1990s when those idiots in 
Victoria passed their misnamed Human Rights Act, and that I shall go on 
defending freedom until the day I die.

Thank you.

Cicero?? My encyclopedia says that you died in 43 B. C.  and you were
always in the shadow of Caesar.  You even a approved of Caesar’s murder?
Well Marcus Tullius; You know what happen to you at the end?

Coming back to Galbraigth.
I wonder what he would say today of the reports coming out of Russia. 

"True economics is dependent on free markets,  the rule of law and a
minimum of government  interventionism".

Well the have a free marked for those who can afford to buy.

They have minimum government intervention now.

They have the rule of the law, protecting people who protect themselves.

Working people in Russia today can get a coffin in exchange for work.

Garage workers in Moscow can supplement their income by murdering
customers so the can sell their cars. To maximize their profit, they
killed 10 of their customers and buried them under the Garage floor.

Do you watch the news lately and what happen lately in Indonesia?

Well Marcus I have bad news for you. The Story in my book does not end
well for you. You see my book says you were slain.

Pray to your lord so history will not repeat itself. Pick another name
for yourself next week, will you?

Regan’s tax cuts for the wealthy were supposed to create a cascade
effect of the economic stimulation. Galbraith said that this was akin to
stuffing the horse with oats in order that enough passed through to feed
the sparrows.

Well ! I have read the Bible in the forties.

I have studied how useful this Bible is.

I have used the Bible as toilet paper in the forties because there was
no other toilet paper around.

I have found out the hard way that the Bible was not very absorbing. 

"God can do everything"!

 Question??  Can your God build a mountain so big that he cannot move
this mountain???

Karl is really ungrateful to the Communists. You see, the way I have 
worked out, it looks like this. The Americans with the help of their
former U.S. Secretary of the treasury Mister Henry Morgenthau had a
plan. If this plan would have been implemented, Karl and I would not be
around to get you guy’s pissed off.

>From  the time as the cold War started there was a remarkable improvement
in our living condition. Where before we had so little to eat and could
hardly survive, foot became available. Karl should really ask himself
what would have happened to him and me if the threat of communism would
have not been there. West Germany was helped on his feet to show the
communist that only people not being communist can prosper. 



>From  the book "OTHER LOSSES" by James Bacque. The book order number is
ISBN 0 - 7736 - 7309 - 1 This is a Revised Edition.

Page VIII 1947 - 1950s       Most records of U.S. prison camps are
destroyed. Germans determine that over 1,700,000 soldiers alive at war’s
end, never returned home.  All Allies deny responsibility; the U.S.,
Britain and France accuse Russia of atrocities in camps.
1960 - 1972    The West German Foreign Office under Willi Brandt
subsidizes books that deny atrocities in U.S. camps.  U.S. Senators
accuse Russians of atrocities, but say nothing of U.S. camps.

Page 9	There would be massive starvation if the industrial base were
destroyed. According to Gordel Hull the secretary of state, "the
Morgenthau Plan would wipe out everything in Germany except land, and
the Germans would have to live on the land.  This meant that only 60
percent of the German population could support themselves on German
land, and the other 40 percent would die." Hull is speaking here of the
deaths of about 20 million German civilians. Churchill said the plan was
"unnatural, unchristian and unnecessary"

So in order to have free enterprise the people have to get some shock

You have to run this one by me one more time or tell me what you
consider morals? Are you trying to tell me that different people have
different morals and if the live by this morals that there is no 
Vaccum?


Amazing. What do you think the  average Russians calling this news
system? Are they calling it Communism?

If you look at my previous poster statement, what conclusion will you
have?

 Real free enterprise is a dream which can only be maintained to a
certain degree with controls in place. If it were left at its own
without controls, it would lead to disaster unless you feel this
disaster is morally sound and therefore there  is no vacuum.

=======================================================================


This is exactly what Mr.Colins has done. He is talking about the lag of
the press in their responsibility.

Mister Ernest Zundel is not questioning the holocaust. What he is
questioning is the mass scale. Because of this he has been charged for
spreading false news. Chances are if he had singled out any other group
of people, nothing would have happened. Today I can say that I do not
believe in the birth of Jesus Christ and will not be charged with
spreading hate. If I would make any smart remarks about Jews, this would
come under the hate law. By the way Zundel won his case.

Let me tell you that today in Germany they have laws to prevent me and
others from saying anything in public what the Government forbids you to
say. Would you like to have GAG laws in the USA?

GG Art. 139
[Weitergeltung der Entnazifizierungsvorschriften]
Die zur "Befreiung des deutschen Volkes vom Nationalsozialismus und
Militarismus" erlassenen Rechtsvorschriften werden von den Bestimmungen
dieses Grundgesetzes nicht berührt.

Wer versucht die während der Nazizeit von Gestapo, SS, Wehrmacht, Firmen
und den vielen 'ganz normalen' Deutschen begangenen Verbrechen zu
leugnen, Vergessen oder Klein zu machen, kann sich nicht auf
freiheitliche Rechte  berufen, da er zwar deren Einhaltung einfordert,
selbst aber nicht danach  
handelt.

Mit Freiheitsstrafe bis zu fünf Jahren oder mit Geldstrafe wird
bestraft, wer eine unter der Herrschaft des Nationalsozialismus
begangene Handlung der in 220 Abs. 1 bezeichneten Art in einer Weise,
die geeignet ist, den öffentlichen Frieden zu stören, öffentlich oder in
einer Versammlung billigt, leugnet oder verharmlost.

Get somebody to translate this into English. What it says that you can
go to jail if you forget what happen.

We need more people like Collins here in Canada as anywhere else do
defend our freedom of speech.

Finally a quote from Nick in Greece.

Here is what Nick from Greece wrote:
History is truly written by the victor, regardless of nationality. The
victors were the Americans for so many years. As such it comes as no
surprise that so many Germans would adopt American political correctness
in their dealings with their own history. This is a scary concept when
one thinks that there must be two sides to every story.

Do not get me wrong. I do know that most people believing in God are
GOOD people. The group of  Christians I am addressing are those
sanctimonious bastards who use the Bible to control people. Is that the

is obvious.

The people, you BOY are pulling your foreskin back for them. 

The following is the text of the speech made by the veteran journalist
Doug Collins after the forced cancellation of a free speech conference
in Oliver, British Columbia, slated for March 21, 1998, at Oliver's 
city hall. It is published here as a censorship-busting exercise in free
speech. 

=-=-=-=-=

Doug Collins:

These are extraordinary times in Canada. Dangerous ones, too. The attack
on freedom of speech is massive. It has been going on for many years,
beginning in 1971 when the federal hate laws were passed. I was covering
parliament at the time and saw it happen at first hand. Since then
situation has grown progressively worse. It has now reached the stage
where under the B.C. Human Rights Code a person could be taken before a
human rights tribunal for telling a Newfie joke. It just depends on
whether Ujjal Dosanjh and the provincial government want to go after
him; in other words, whether he is a sanctioned target - sanctioned by
the politically correct and pressure groups like Sol Littman's Simon
Wiesenthal Centre.

It's disappointing that the establishment media are suckers for
propaganda
put out by those groups. All that's needed for them to press the panic
button and produce scare headlines is for the usual trigger words to be
used - neo-Nazi, white supremacist, racist, anti-Semitic. The issues are
rarely debated. So they resort to calling people names. Meanwhile, real
reporting seems to be out of fashion, taking handouts is very much in
fashion. The stories in the Okanagan media have been good examples of
that, as was Thursday's scare story in the Globe & Mail. Call it the
spirit of the times. Forty years ago we saw another spirit of the times.
It was called McCarthyism. Anyone who wanted medicare could be demonized
and seen as a Communist. I lived through those times, too, but many of
today's media weren't around then. So let's forgive them, for they know
not what they do. But it's time some of them grew up.

In the United States none of the anti-free speech laws that decorate the
landscape in Canada would get to first base. They have a Constitution
that protects free expression. We don't. Our Charter of Rights and 
Freedoms is a leaky vessel, which is why teachers and others can be 
fired from their jobs for holding the wrong views. In this country, 
too, an author like David Irving can be arrested while making a dinner
speech about free speech, put into handcuffs, and deported on an 
immigration pretext - while many killers and crooks of all kinds are 
allowed to remain here and while Asian gangs roam Vancouver on drive-by
shootings. That's something else the people of Oliver might think about
when they sign petitions asking the Attorney General in effect to go 
after Mr. Klatt for running an Internet service. But once again, let's
not blame them. They are victims of a massive propaganda campaign. 
That's what I was getting at when I wrote that famous or infamous 
column on Hollywood Propaganda. 

My interest in freedom of speech began a long time ago. When Ernst
Zundel was prosecuted for "spreading false news" in 1985 I appeared 
for the defence. I had never heard of the guy but it was
incomprehensible
to me that a man could be prosecuted for spreading false news. As I told
the court, Santa Claus spreads false news, the weatherman spreads false
news,and any reporter who has ever reported what a politician has had 
to say is probably spreading false news. Today's media are particularly 
good at spreading false news. The Globe & Mail story about this meeting 
that appeared on Thursday was liberally sprinkled with false news, as 
Oliver has good reason to know. In the Zundel case, of course, the 
Supreme Court of Canada agreed with me in the end and the false news law
was nixed.Littman can count himself lucky. 

But the anti-free speech experts were not discouraged. They invented
human rights commissions.The B.C. Human Rights Act, or Code, as it's 
called now,is a disgrace to the province and to the country. The 
Littmans think it's wonderful, of course, but they would, wouldn't 
they!.

I was charged under that Code. The Canadian Jewish Congress laid a
complaint against me after I'd written a column headed "Hollywood
Propaganda" in which I said that the six million holocaust figure was
nonsense, that the Jewish influence in Hollywood was predominant, and
that the move Schindler's List should have been called Swindler's List.
I said that because the man's own wife denounced him as a swindler, 
and she should know. As for who runs Hollywood, only last Sunday a 
two-hour program was shown on network TV called "Hollywoodism," which
confirmed my view in spades. I also stated in the column that I was 
tired of hate literature in the form of films, and that Schindler's 
List had to be the 555th. movie on the same subject. Think about 
that, when the Littmans and the Canadian Jewish Congress fulminate 
about hate literature. How would you feel if you were a German born 
long after Hitler was dead and you were reminded every day that your
grandfather did the wrong thing? Ask yourselves how you would feel if
you were a young German, being told by Daniel Goldhagen, a Jewish 
professor in New York, that Germans have a pathological hatred of Jews?
That's what he did in his book Hitler's Willing Executioners. Isn't 
that hate literature? But there's not much fuss about that. The book 
is freely available in Canada, while books to which the pressure groups
object are not. They are stopped at the border.

Reverse the Goldhagen thing and consider what the reaction would be if
someone wrote a book claiming that all Jews are crooks. What it boils
down to of course is that one man's Hitler is another man's Hemingway.

It's now over half a century since the war ended but from what see on TV
and you get in the media you might think it ended two weeks ago. 
As it happens, I know a lot more about Nazis than most of my critics do.
I was a prisoner of war in Germany until I escaped. I saw Bergen Belsen
concentration camp on the way up through Germany in 1945 after I had
rejoined the forces, and for some years after the war I was a Political
Intelligence Officer working on the de-Nazification of Germany. In
short,I have seen a lot of real Nazis, not just the ersatz types of 
which Sol Littman and that Communist academic David Lethbridge of 
Salmon Arm are so oncerned about.

In Lethbridge's case, at least, he seems to be quite UNconcerned about
the many more millions who died under communism. I might also say that
even if I was wrong, and I wasn't, in a democracy we are supposed to
have
the right to be wrong. Or is that now also out of fashion, with a
Ministry
of Truth headed by Littman and Co.? If so, then Oliver would have to be
the
Hate Capital of Canada and I would have to be an agent for
neo-Nazis,which
is what he called me on television. And speaking of television, it's
one thing to denounce people from a distance and quite another to face
them in debate. I debated free speech for an hour with Littman on CBC
Newsworld and in the viewer poll that was taken 73% voted for me and for
free speech.

As for that rights tribunal I faced, even a carefully selected
adjudicator had to dismiss the case. No hate here, as the North Shore 
News headline put it. And why did she throw out the complaint? Not, in 
my opinion, because she would not have liked to find me guilty, but 
because she knew that if the case had gone to court the complaint would 
have been found to be unconstitutional. Why? Because the B.C. Human
Rights
Code is a Heresy Act, pure and simple. A Heresy Act, which is one reason 
why I am here today, Mr. Attorney General Ujjal Dosanjh. Here are the 
facts: Under that law, truth is no defence; fair comment is not a
defence,
as it is with libel and slander; publication in the public
interest is not a defence, innocent intent is not a defence, and even
work done for scientific purposes is not a defence. 

Let me repeat what the lawyer for the B.C. Press Council said: this is a
law that attempts to stifle speech that is not criminal. That's where
we're at in B.C.

On top of all that the government itself can make its own complaints to
its own Human Rights Commission even when no complaint has been entered
by a third party. So they can get you going and coming even if no-one
else
wants to. Talk about Big Brother and George Orwell's 1984! Fortunately,
we still have courts in this country that can strike down the acts of 
these would-be dictators. In 1938 the Alberta Press Act was struck down,
just as the false news law was later. But the intent of the politicians 
who pass such laws is the same as it is in the dictatorships. 

But while the courts cogitate, speech in Canada is not free at all. It
comes at a price, which is why I no longer sing the national anthem. We
are not the True North Strong and Free. When we revert to being strong
and free I'll start singing again. In my case the defence of a free 
press has cost the North Shore News well over $200,000. Others, like 
Mr.Fromm,have been hounded from their jobs. But there is a bright side
to this. In the case of the North Shore News the public has subscribed 
nearly $150,000 to its defence fund, which shows that you can't fool 
all the people all the time.

It's not over, though. A man describing himself in his complaint as "a
Jewish person" - Harry Abrams, the founder of B'Nai Brith in Victoria -
has launched another action against me with those rights experts over
there who are led by that leather-clad lesbian, Mary Woo Sims, the chief
commissioner. He complains about six columns, including the Hollywood
propaganda column that was dismissed in the first tribunal. Double
jeopardy? What's that? Let's have a rematch, they say. 

Instead of waiting for handouts from Littman and Lethbridge about white
supremacists and other bogeymen, the media should take the trouble to
examine what's going on. Lethbridge and other free speech artists
screamed that this meeting should be stopped. So it was. Only meetings 
of which he approved would be allowed. He's a fascist of the Left. Yet 
the media quote him as if he were an oracle. 

If they did take a look at things, the media would find a firm link
between the politically correct of the militant left and government, who
are often one and the same, as in B.C. They would find that Lethbridge
was a key speaker at, and organizer of, the pro-violence Anti-Racist 
Action Trotskyite mob in Toronto that has been barred from school 
grounds.They would find that Alan Dutton the big anti-racist in B.C. 
was instrumental in getting grants for the ARA from Toronto Metro 
Council. He himself has received hundreds of thousand of dollars in 
grants from government, which finances the anti-freedom movement. . 
They would also find that hotels have been bullied - terrorized might
be a more appropriate term - into not renting premises to groups of 
whom the Lethbridges and the Duttons disapprove.That happened in 
Surrey a couple of years ago when the late Pat Burns of radio fame 
was to have been the keynote speaker and I was to have spoken on Bill 
33, which has become B.C.'s Heresy Act. They would find that no less 
a person than the Attorney General of this province approved of what 
they were doing. They would find that the Duttons and Letbridges
act as advisers to the Attonery General. They would find that the
Alberta Human Rights Commission told a hotel in Edmonton not to give
space to a group that planned to discuss the Canadian Constitution.
They would also find that attempts have been made by the same people
to deny groups space in public libraries. The same Harry Abrams I 
mentioned a minute ago is a leader in that endeavor. He has asked the 
National Library Association to do that, using the trigger word "hate 
groups". But so far the libraries have refused to be panicked. And if
the media are too lazy to seek all that out by themselves, I can help 
them. Yes, that's the kind of stuff you should be doing, Oliver
Chronicle,
Penticton Herald, Globe and Mail, Vancouver Sun, CBC and all the rest of
you. You don't do it, but I can tell you again this: I'm old enough to 
have seen all this happen before.

What's going on is really no different in spirit from what the
Brownshirts got up to in Nazi Germany. In Nazi Germany, it was enough 
to shout Jew, Communist or Socialist. Today in Canada it's enough to 
shout white supremacist, neo-Nazi, and anti-Semite. The ideologies are
different but the spirit is the same. A word or two about the Internet.
The Internet is seen by the Littmans as a threat. How dreadful that 
people can actually send out messages to the world without their having 
to go through the filter of a press dominated by the poltivally correct.
So - kill the Internet, and if the Internet can’t be killed then ruin 
anyone, like Mr. Klatt, who doesn't take orders and won't act as a
censor.
I should point out here that I have seen nothing of what the Littmans
and
Co are bitching about, nor have most of the media who echo what Littman 
says. I had never even heard of the Charlemagne Hammerheads before this 
affair blew up and I have never had lunch with a skinhead, ans what they
are supposed to be saying is certainly not my cup of tea.But I'll tell
you
something. I can be my own censor, thanks very much. I don't need
Littman's 
help.The same option is open to all Internet users. But Littman can't
trust
the public. He wants to treat people like children, while yelling about 
discrimination. To which I say, physician, heal thyself. 

Yes, the idea is to kill the Internet, or at least the controversial
voices on it that Littman doesn't like. And of course there are nasty
voices on it, although I've never bothered to tune in to them. But don't
be fooled by the idea that Littman's censorship would end with stopping
them. Let me give you an example of what I mean. When the Barrett
government got going on its human rights program in the early 1970s we
were told that all they wanted to do was to ensure fair play in hiring
and housing. But these things begin small and end large, and today human
rights commissions in this country are a menace to human rights. Rights
have become wrongs, and in today in B.C. the human rights gang is a
direct threat to freedom of the press. 

It is also said that you can learn how to make bombs on the Internet. So
you can. But you can also learn how to make bombs by other means. The
left-wing Squamish Five didn't need any Internet to learn how to make
and explode bombs in the 1980s, and people intent on making bombs today
don't need the Internet either.

When Winston Churchill lost the British election in 1945, he said,
"Trust the people." I follow that precept and it's my hope that in 
spite of the demonization of dissidents that ‘s going on now, 
Canadians will hold steady. We've been through crazy times before
and survived, and I'm here today in the expectation that we'll survive
this one. 

Meanwhile, Mayor Larson should put on her thinking cap instead of
pandering to the Littmans and giving way to bullies. Then there's
councillor Terry Shafer. He has said that the matter of this meeting is
a tough issue, particularly when the veterans are celebrating the 
creation of Canadian Legion here. They fought, he said so as to allow 
us the privilege of expressing our opinions, NO MATTER HOW AWFUL 
THOSE OPINIONS MAY BE.

What do you know about those opinions, councillor? Have you heard or
read any of them or are you taking the time from Littman and Lethbridge?
And what about your local Liberal MLA, Bill Barisoff? Has he had
anything
critical to say about the NDP's Heresy Law? If he has I must have been
snoozing. But he's reported as telling Litttman he'd be happy to work
with him to ensure that hate literature that violates the Criminal Code
does not appear anywhere in Canada. Does he take Littman's word for what
hate literature is? If you ask me, he's a bit like the Red Queen in
Alice
in Wonderland who said, sentence first, trial later. 

I'll leave you with a couple of other thoughts. A columnist said in
print last year that I give free speech a bad name. I replied by
pointing
out that free speech has always had a bad name. Free speech had a bad
name
when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of Wittingen
cathedral. It had a bad name when John Tyndale was burned at the stake
for translating the Bible into English. It had a bad name when John
Milton
wrote that truth and falsehood should grapple freely. It had a bad name
when the Ayatolla in Iran proclaimed a death sentence on Salman Rushdie,
and when the communists were up before the un-American Activities
Committee. It had a bad name two thousand years ago, when a man called
Jesus was nailed to the cross. One might almost say that free speech has
NEVER had a GOOD name, and thanks to the Littmans and the Lethbridges
and others like them free speech certainly has a bad name today. As I
mentioned earlier, if you are for free speech you are a neo-Nazi, a
crypto-Nazi, a white supremacist, or an anti-Semite. 

This sort of thing is not confined to Canada. It exists right across the
Western world. In Australia, Terry Lane, a well-known print and radio
commentator got into trouble with the local Littmans and wrote a letter
to the Australian Jewish News in 1992 in which he stated the following:

"The Zionist lobby in this country is malicious, implacable, mendacious
and dangerous. What's more, once the expression anti-Semitism hits the
air, or, heaven forfend, the sacred six million is uttered...we are
thrown to the jackals. I surrender. To the Zionists I say, you win. 
To the Palestinians, forgive my cowardice." 

In 1938, the Supreme Court of Canada had this to say when it struck down
the Alberta Press Act:

"Freedom of discussion is essential to enlighten public opinion in a
democratic state. It cannot be curtailed without affecting the right of
people to be informed, independent of government, concerning matters of
public interest. There must be untrammelled publication of news and
opinion." UNTRAMMELLED! It stated further that if the Social Credit law
were allowed to stand, the Socred doctrine would become a kind of
religious dogma that the people would buck at their peril. 

If the Littmans and other critics have their way, their dogmas would
become a kind of religion, too, that we would buck at our peril, and we
are already are buckinjg at our peril. So I say to hell with them, and
you can quote me. How about it, Mayor Larson and others who are running
for cover? How about it, Bill Barisoff? I can tell you where you should
stand. You should be standing right here with the rest of us, not
passing
by on the other side of the street. I will conclude by saying that I am 
77 years of age, that I defended freedom in the 1940s when Hitler was on
the loose, in the 1950s when McCarthy was on the loose, in the 1970s
when
the federal hate laws were passed, in the 1990s when those idiots in 
Victoria passed their misnamed Human Rights Act, and that I shall go on 
defending freedom until the day I die.

Thank you.

=======================================================================


This is exactly what Mr.Colins has done. He is talking about the lag of
the press in their responsibility.

Mister Ernest Zundel is not questioning the holocaust. What he is
questioning is the mass scale. Because of this he has been charged for
spreading false news. Chances are if he had singled out any other group
of people, nothing would have happened. Today I can say that I do not
believe in the birth of Jesus Christ and will not be charged with
spreading hate. If I would make any smart remarks about Jews, this would
come under the hate law. By the way Zundel won his case.

Let me tell you that today in Germany they have laws to prevent me and
others from saying anything in public what the Government forbids you to
say. Would you like to have GAG laws in the USA?

GG Art. 139
[Weitergeltung der Entnazifizierungsvorschriften]
Die zur "Befreiung des deutschen Volkes vom Nationalsozialismus und
Militarismus" erlassenen Rechtsvorschriften werden von den Bestimmungen
dieses Grundgesetzes nicht berührt.

Wer versucht die während der Nazizeit von Gestapo, SS, Wehrmacht, Firmen
und den vielen 'ganz normalen' Deutschen begangenen Verbrechen zu
leugnen, Vergessen oder Klein zu machen, kann sich nicht auf
freiheitliche Rechte  berufen, da er zwar deren Einhaltung einfordert,
selbst aber nicht danach  
handelt.

Mit Freiheitsstrafe bis zu fünf Jahren oder mit Geldstrafe wird
bestraft, wer eine unter der Herrschaft des Nationalsozialismus
begangene Handlung der in 220 Abs. 1 bezeichneten Art in einer Weise,
die geeignet ist, den öffentlichen Frieden zu stören, öffentlich oder in
einer Versammlung billigt, leugnet oder verharmlost.

Get somebody to translate this into English. What it says that you can
go to jail if you forget what happen.

We need more people like Collins here in Canada as anywhere else do
defend our freedom of speech.

Finally a quote from Nick in Greece.

Here is what Nick from Greece wrote:
History is truly written by the victor, regardless of nationality. The
victors were the Americans for so many years. As such it comes as no
surprise that so many Germans would adopt American political correctness
in their dealings with their own history. This is a scary concept when
one thinks that there must be two sides to every story.

I felt SORRY for myself because I had no shoes, until I met the man who

Since you are changing the subjects name so many times in this tread, I

Mister McVay used the word lying, liar often to prove that I must be
wrong. Why not, calling somebody a liar will get peoples attention and
most of the time it will end a meaningful discussion. He was calling me
a lair for telling him, no matter how much he likes to represent himself
a man of integrity, he still has to depend on help from his supporter.
As far that I am concerned, he can call me a liar till hell freezes
over.

If he want’s to play the roll as a wailing boy for his sponsors and
getting paid for it, that is fine with me. After all this job is better
than pumping gas. My last correspondence see below.

Same here.

>Does anyone know the details ?

I do not know exactly, being that the moderators (Nizkor!)
who took over after the founders were no longer able to devote 
the time necessary are silent.
===============

Nizkor is good at publicizing itself and making it look bigger
than it really is, but it is mostly form and little substance.
It claimed to have "hundreds of volunteers" but in reality it
was a small cadre. Its chief, Ken McVay, who I knew online before
Nizkor was founded, is quite narrow-minded, controling, and domineering.
It is his way or no way. Instead of helping people grow and develope
re the Shoah, and face it, he wants to shove his own very particular
view (not necessarily same as the Particularists) onto others. 
Basically,
if, based on who-knows-what detail, he likes you and  makes a decision
to
like you very soon, he will exclude you and give you run-around.
=========================
After awile, even some people in his closest cadre got fed up and left.

So now, with less manpower, he is no longer able to "tightly control"
(Ken's actual words!) soc.culture.jewish.holocaust .  So, rather than
let somebody else take over the moderating (and somebody he cannot
control, but still a competent person to moderate), he just lets
scjh sit there empty and unused.

This should not go on.

SCJH was origninally founded here in SCJ as a way to move Shoah-related
discussions out of SCJ, to free up SCJ for other things.  Also, the
founders wanted to make it moderated "to keep out neo-Nazis and
deniers."
They could have had moderation only in a group other than SCJ.  Also,
this
was back before SCJ itself became overcrowed and a playground for
anti-Jewish
posters.

The original charter as written by the founders who worked out of
University
of North Carolina of Chapel Hill was quite fine and fair to all
fair-minded
people.  They accepted a wide variety of posts and when they rejected
any
of them, they sent the poster an personalized e-mail explaining the
exact
reason for the rejection and inviting a rewritten resubmission. 
  
But then one day they announced that they no longer have time to
do it and asked for a new set of moderators to take over.
=============================================
Ken McVay jumped at this chance. Himself, along with his appointees,
"Jamie" and "Harry" (last names withheld), took over.  When I asked
the identies of this "Jamie" and this "Harry" I received no reply.
I speculate that they were Jamie McCarthy and Harry Mazal.  
============================================
Jamie is not Jewish and neither is Ken.  I do not know what Harry is.
But yet, in spite the fact that 2/3 and maybe even 3/3 of the moderators
were NON-Jews, the newsgroup remained soc.culture.JEWISH.holocaust.
I think (and I thought this even when the U. North Carolina people were
moderating) that a better name would have been simply

because it is not just a Jewish issue.  (The word "Shoah" instead of
"Holocaust" excludes from the NG tragedies other than the anti-Jewish
Nazi Holocaust of the 1930's and 1940's, so the word "Jewish" would be
unnecessary in the NG name if the word "Shoah" was included.) 

But when  Nizkor took over, the inclusion of the word "Jewish" seemed 
to be crying out with anguish that control of the NG that is supposed 
to be Jew-centric (at least by looking at the NG name) was in the hands 
of Goyim.

Also, if Jews wanted a specifically Jewish forum to discuss
Shoah-related
issues, a sister newsgroup for  called
 could be created. By the same logic, a
 could be created (and can do much good in
an area where much good badly needs done!!!).
=======================================
And a new charter was written after Ken McVay took over that was a very 
big step down from the original,
even though Ken claimed it was an "improvement in quality."  This new
charter reflected an author who is narrowminded and over-controlling.
It also even more noticable was that it made *Revisionism* of all things
the point of reference for everything!!  Uh, I thought the *Shoah
itself*
was supposed to be the point of reference.
========================================
But no, Ken chose to focus on only one implication of the Shoah.
It is ok for one person to focus on only on implication such as
Revisionism/denial, but it is not ok for a moderated newsgroup that 
claims to be a *general Jewish
Shoah-related newsgroup* to be limited to such a focus. If Ken's 
personal posts to scjh were to be mainly on the deniers, that would 
have been OK, but what he did was judge each and every submission on 
how it fit his anti-Revisionist criteria and on no other factor
seemingly.

The focus, even obsession, with *Revisionism* was so overarching that
the newsgroup would be much better named 
than soc.culture.jewish.holocaust

Ken also denied many more posts that the U. North Carolina founders. 
And he gave no explanation.  All the poster got was a form e-mail
letter.  This letter's first few paragraphs pontificated about how
scjh rejects revisionist denialist posts and how terrible such posters
are!  Even very Shoah-believing rejected posts got this rejection
letter!!
It is only far into the form letter that it says that the post might
also
have been rejected because the moderators decided it was "too lengthly
or 
off topic."   
========================================
Just think of how many people who are just trying for the first time in
their lives to come out of their shell on the Shoah, and who ask an
honest question, but Ken, in his paranoia against "deniers" deems to be
"denialist."  How many such people were driven back into their shells
never 
to come out again or come out only after many years!!  How invalidating
it must have been for these people and how hurt when they might have had
to gather up much courage to ask a question in the first place.  Asking
little questions in a NG is a first step some people need before they
can
go on to read books and such.  But many people wanting to try to face
the Shoah got beat down by Ken on their first attempt!  
=============================================
Oh, yes, Ken also dictated that a post must be "historically
accurate."  But an honest question from a person who is only starting
out
or who has heard bad information due to no fault of his or her own (and 
it is not only the Revisionists
who have been putting out "bad information" over the years!!) will often
not meet Ken's "historically accruate" standard.  One has to be already
well-read on the Shoah (and in accord with Ken's paradeigm of it) to
get a post approved oftentimes.  People who are already well-read or
well-networked are *not* the people who need scjh the most. The ones who
need it most are ones like me who are trying to come out, trying to find
study-partners, and so forth.  Yet is is we who would get his with an
e-mail accusing us of having evil motives and such.  Most beginners are
too disheartened by such abusive reject letters that they never got the
the latter paragraph where it says that posts also get rejected for
being "too lengthy or off topic."

And a resubmission was requested, but no specific guidance of the kind
I valued so much from the U. North Carolina founders was to be had.

And Ken had unstated criteria too.  For example, I once submitted an
approximately 3 to 5 K post stating that I am thinking of going on
a medically-supervised hunger strike to promote Shoah education and
activism.  (I hate the word "awareness" -- people who need to be reached
are already painfully "aware" -- they need a chance to put their 
pre-existing awarness to constructive use!).  I was asking if others
thought this was a good or a bad idea.  Well, *this* got the form letter
rejection pontificating how "we reject
and loath your revisionist post ... also, you post might have been
rejected
due to being too long or being off topic."   

Mine hunger strike submission was not Holocaust
Revisionist, not too long, nor off topic by any stretch of the
imagination.
Yet Ken saw it unfit.  I asked him why specifially, but got no reply.

It is obvious that scjh is its current form is impotent.  Since it was
created by discussion here, I think here we should discuss its
demolition
and reorganization under new management.  I think that demolishing it is
the only way to get it away from Ken.  If it cannot be demolished
without
his consent, then we can just go and form soc.culture.shoah with
competent
moderators.  It can then do the job that Ken will not permit scjh to do.

Listen you clown. I am trying to save taxpayers money by keeping you out
of the lunatic bin. Everybody should be happy for that.

You see; I read your yes or no question about 5 time and could not
figure out what you are getting at. It stands to reason that when you
said that you will not censor people than I could not say that you did.

On May 6, 1998 I said that your style and actions will resuld in turning
people off. With other words, whilst you say that you do not sencor
people, this people are turned off

The words narrow minded, controlling, domineering and turning people off
come to my mind here.

I can not help you to slander this lady because I do not know her.
Perhaps you should do some soul searching if there is such a thing. It
is not possiple that eveyone is wrong and you are always right. Better
start to grow up.

Do you know who Julius Streicher was?? I went to the Julius Streicher
school in the thirties and never hear so much nonsense as on this news
group. There is a certain pattern here with  guy's like you. If you do
not like what somebody else has to say, call them lairs or give them a
bad name. That what Streicher told us about Jews. Times never change as
long there are people like John Morris are around. You and your friend
MvVay walk in Streicher’ s foot steps.

So what? You, I and many others have our own hobby horses too. I have a
selection of news paper clippings about Canadian Politics, religious
fanatics, the holocaust industry and rightwing propaganda. Whenever I
feel something is wrong, I will say so. I do not hate religious people,
Jews, or people who have a different political view than I have. If  I
feel that somebody is wrong, I am prepared to tell him so. I do not mind
at ALL when people are telling me where I am wrong and if this people
can explain to me what is a better way to do things, more power to them.

How would Streicher produced pronographic material? This seems highly
unlikely consider the political climate during the Nazi area!

Never read Hitchen or Irving. No comment on this. About audience? Lets
be honest with yourself. We ALL are looking for an audience here.

Well; like I said. From 1939 to 1947 I went to the Julius Steicher
school to learn the 3 R’ s. It was only in 1946 we were made aware who
Julius Streicher was. Julius Streicher a former teacher, journalist
published "DER STÜRMER" This hate literature against the Jews was
published to get people worked up. There were many ways Streicher
portrayed the Jews. The information I got from older people goes like
this in all of his printings Jews were liars, people who are dishonest
and many other things. You know the results. At the Nürnberg trial
Streicher was sentenced to hang for spreading hate propaganda. I
remember very well because I did live close by.

Yes I did fire back in kind to make sure that you know how it feels
being labeled. By comparing Slepokura with Streicher, you chose to use
the same tactics as the Nazi’s, You are trying to discredit a person
because you do not like what he says, plain and simple.

The echo comes back very clear. When you shout into the forest the echo
will come back.

Do you know who Julius Streicher was?? I went to the Julius Streicher
school in the thirties and never hear so much nonsense as on this news
group. There is a certain pattern here with  guy's like you. If you do
not like what somebody else has to say, call them lairs or give them a
bad name. That what Streicher told us about Jews. Times never change as
long there are people like John Morris are around. You and your friend
MvVay walk in Streicher’ s foot steps.

Listen you clown. I am trying to save taxpayers money by keeping you out
of the lunatic bin. Everybody should be happy for that.

You see; I read your yes or no question about 5 time and could not
figure out what you are getting at. It stands to reason that when you
said that you will not censor people than I could not say that you did.

On May 6, 1998 I said that your style and actions will resuld in turning
people off. With other words, whilst you say that you do not sencor
people, this people are turned off

You see Ken; I do not consider you a honest person at all. You have

The words narrow minded, controlling, domineering and turning people off
come to my mind here.

I can not help you to slander this lady because I do not know her.
Perhaps you should do some soul searching if there is such a thing. It
is not possiple that eveyone is wrong and you are always right. Better
start to grow up.

Do you know who Julius Streicher was?? I went to the Julius Streicher
school in the thirties and never hear so much nonsense as on this news
group. There is a certain pattern here with  guy's like you. If you do
not like what somebody else has to say, call them lairs or give them a
bad name. That what Streicher told us about Jews. Times never change as
long there are people like John Morris are around. You and your friend
MvVay walk in Streicher’ s foot steps.

So what? You, I and many others have our own hobby horses too. I have a
selection of news paper clippings about Canadian Politics, religious
fanatics, the holocaust industry and rightwing propaganda. Whenever I
feel something is wrong, I will say so. I do not hate religious people,
Jews, or people who have a different political view than I have. If  I
feel that somebody is wrong, I am prepared to tell him so. I do not mind
at ALL when people are telling me where I am wrong and if this people
can explain to me what is a better way to do things, more power to them.

How would Streicher produced pronographic material? This seems highly
unlikely consider the political climate during the Nazi area!

Never read Hitchen or Irving. No comment on this. About audience? Lets
be honest with yourself. We ALL are looking for an audience here.

Well; like I said. From 1939 to 1947 I went to the Julius Steicher
school to learn the 3 R’ s. It was only in 1946 we were made aware who
Julius Streicher was. Julius Streicher a former teacher, journalist
published "DER STÜRMER" This hate literature against the Jews was
published to get people worked up. There were many ways Streicher
portrayed the Jews. The information I got from older people goes like
this in all of his printings Jews were liars, people who are dishonest
and many other things. You know the results. At the Nürnberg trial
Streicher was sentenced to hang for spreading hate propaganda. I
remember very well because I did live close by.

Yes I did fire back in kind to make sure that you know how it feels
being labeled. By comparing Slepokura with Streicher, you chose to use
the same tactics as the Nazi’s, You are trying to discredit a person
because you do not like what he says, plain and simple.

The echo comes back very clear. When you shout into the forest the echo
will come back.

Well the squeaky wheel always gets most of the grease. Ottawa is trying
to please the French and in doing so is alienating the anglophone. We
all know that is wrong. There is nothing wrong with complaining about
this. However to use this as a weapon to oust  this business

Actually Ken is suppose to be the good guy. As I pointed out to him what
you said in your posting: Narrow minded, controlling, domineering and
turning people off. He question the charter?

"And a new charter was written after Ken McVay took over that was a very 
big step down from the original,"

Ken has one good quality however. Sometimes he is making good points but
in doing so, he is pushing everything he build up so well with his ass
down. That is really sad.

Same here.

>Does anyone know the details ?

I do not know exactly, being that the moderators (Nizkor!)
who took over after the founders were no longer able to devote 
the time necessary are silent.


Nizkor is good at publicizing itself and making it look bigger
than it really is, but it is mostly form and little substance.
It claimed to have "hundreds of volunteers" but in reality it
was a small cadre. Its chief, Ken McVay, who I knew online before
Nizkor was founded, is quite narrow-minded, controling, and domineering.
It is his way or no way. Instead of helping people grow and develope
re the Shoah, and face it, he wants to shove his own very particular
view (not necessarily same as the Particularists) onto others. 
Basically,
if, based on who-knows-what detail, he likes you and  makes a decision
to
like you very soon, he will exclude you and give you run-around.

After awile, even some people in his closest cadre got fed up and left.

So now, with less manpower, he is no longer able to "tightly control"
(Ken's actual words!) soc.culture.jewish.holocaust .  So, rather than
let somebody else take over the moderating (and somebody he cannot
control, but still a competent person to moderate), he just lets
scjh sit there empty and unused.

This should not go on.

SCJH was origninally founded here in SCJ as a way to move Shoah-related
discussions out of SCJ, to free up SCJ for other things.  Also, the
founders wanted to make it moderated "to keep out neo-Nazis and
deniers."
They could have had moderation only in a group other than SCJ.  Also,
this
was back before SCJ itself became overcrowed and a playground for
anti-Jewish
posters.

The original charter as written by the founders who worked out of
University
of North Carolina of Chapel Hill was quite fine and fair to all
fair-minded
people.  They accepted a wide variety of posts and when they rejected
any
of them, they sent the poster an personalized e-mail explaining the
exact
reason for the rejection and inviting a rewritten resubmission. 
  
But then one day they announced that they no longer have time to
do it and asked for a new set of moderators to take over.

Ken McVay jumped at this chance. Himself, along with his appointees,
"Jamie" and "Harry" (last names withheld), took over.  When I asked
the identies of this "Jamie" and this "Harry" I received no reply.
I speculate that they were Jamie McCarthy and Harry Mazal.  

Jamie is not Jewish and neither is Ken.  I do not know what Harry is.
But yet, in spite the fact that 2/3 and maybe even 3/3 of the moderators
were NON-Jews, the newsgroup remained soc.culture.JEWISH.holocaust.
I think (and I thought this even when the U. North Carolina people were
moderating) that a better name would have been simply

because it is not just a Jewish issue.  (The word "Shoah" instead of
"Holocaust" excludes from the NG tragedies other than the anti-Jewish
Nazi Holocaust of the 1930's and 1940's, so the word "Jewish" would be
unnecessary in the NG name if the word "Shoah" was included.) 

But when  Nizkor took over, the inclusion of the word "Jewish" seemed 
to be crying out with anguish that control of the NG that is supposed 
to be Jew-centric (at least by looking at the NG name) was in the hands 
of Goyim.

Also, if Jews wanted a specifically Jewish forum to discuss
Shoah-related
issues, a sister newsgroup for  called
 could be created. By the same logic, a
 could be created (and can do much good in
an area where much good badly needs done!!!).

And a new charter was written after Ken McVay took over that was a very 
big step down from the original,
even though Ken claimed it was an "improvement in quality."  This new
charter reflected an author who is narrowminded and over-controlling.
It also even more noticable was that it made *Revisionism* of all things
the point of reference for everything!!  Uh, I thought the *Shoah
itself*
was supposed to be the point of reference.

But no, Ken chose to focus on only one implication of the Shoah.
It is ok for one person to focus on only on implication such as
Revisionism/denial, but it is not ok for a moderated newsgroup that 
claims to be a *general Jewish
Shoah-related newsgroup* to be limited to such a focus. If Ken's 
personal posts to scjh were to be mainly on the deniers, that would 
have been OK, but what he did was judge each and every submission on 
how it fit his anti-Revisionist criteria and on no other factor
seemingly.

The focus, even obsession, with *Revisionism* was so overarching that
the newsgroup would be much better named 
than soc.culture.jewish.holocaust

Ken also denied many more posts that the U. North Carolina founders. 
And he gave no explanation.  All the poster got was a form e-mail
letter.  This letter's first few paragraphs pontificated about how
scjh rejects revisionist denialist posts and how terrible such posters
are!  Even very Shoah-believing rejected posts got this rejection
letter!!
It is only far into the form letter that it says that the post might
also
have been rejected because the moderators decided it was "too lengthly
or 
off topic."   

Just think of how many people who are just trying for the first time in
their lives to come out of their shell on the Shoah, and who ask an
honest question, but Ken, in his paranoia against "deniers" deems to be
"denialist."  How many such people were driven back into their shells
never 
to come out again or come out only after many years!!  How invalidating
it must have been for these people and how hurt when they might have had
to gather up much courage to ask a question in the first place.  Asking
little questions in a NG is a first step some people need before they
can
go on to read books and such.  But many people wanting to try to face
the Shoah got beat down by Ken on their first attempt!  

Oh, yes, Ken also dictated that a post must be "historically
accurate."  But an honest question from a person who is only starting
out
or who has heard bad information due to no fault of his or her own (and 
it is not only the Revisionists
who have been putting out "bad information" over the years!!) will often
not meet Ken's "historically accruate" standard.  One has to be already
well-read on the Shoah (and in accord with Ken's paradeigm of it) to
get a post approved oftentimes.  People who are already well-read or
well-networked are *not* the people who need scjh the most. The ones who
need it most are ones like me who are trying to come out, trying to find
study-partners, and so forth.  Yet is is we who would get his with an
e-mail accusing us of having evil motives and such.  Most beginners are
too disheartened by such abusive reject letters that they never got the
the latter paragraph where it says that posts also get rejected for
being "too lengthy or off topic."

And a resubmission was requested, but no specific guidance of the kind
I valued so much from the U. North Carolina founders was to be had.

And Ken had unstated criteria too.  For example, I once submitted an
approximately 3 to 5 K post stating that I am thinking of going on
a medically-supervised hunger strike to promote Shoah education and
activism.  (I hate the word "awareness" -- people who need to be reached
are already painfully "aware" -- they need a chance to put their 
pre-existing awarness to constructive use!).  I was asking if others
thought this was a good or a bad idea.  Well, *this* got the form letter
rejection pontificating how "we reject
and loath your revisionist post ... also, you post might have been
rejected
due to being too long or being off topic."   

Mine hunger strike submission was not Holocaust
Revisionist, not too long, nor off topic by any stretch of the
imagination.
Yet Ken saw it unfit.  I asked him why specifially, but got no reply.

It is obvious that scjh is its current form is impotent.  Since it was
created by discussion here, I think here we should discuss its
demolition
and reorganization under new management.  I think that demolishing it is
the only way to get it away from Ken.  If it cannot be demolished
without
his consent, then we can just go and form soc.culture.shoah with
competent
moderators.  It can then do the job that Ken will not permit scjh to do.

Ken will nichts Verstehen. Ken has not learned to listen and trying to
find a consensus. Instead he works under the assumption that everybody
else is wrong. He is doing to all the Jewish people I had contact with a
disserves. This people like me had to take a lot of flag for something
they had absolutely no control over and were more than willing to
understand me. This is a rotten world we are living in and only by
listening and respecting each other, can we live peacefully side by
side.

Young man; I am having a hard time believing what you are saying. Could
I be wrong in assuming that you were born with two left hands? Or is it
that you are not interested to go ahead in your live?

Are you trying to say that people who do not hold the official line
about the holocaust, will not find a JOB?

I have news for you There was a movie in the thirties called "Jud Süss?"
A movie who portrayed Jewish people in a bad way. Today you would call
this movie hate propaganda. Some of this actors could not get a job
after 1945 because the played a roll in this movie. I would not be
surprised if the cleaning lady was punished for that too.

What we have here today, a witch hunt by Jewish organizations. The sad
part is that so many people out there are afraid today to speak up
against this kind of blackmail.

Marin Niemöller said:

They came for the Jews and I did not speak out -  because I was not a
Jew.
Then they came for the communist and I did not speak out - because I was
not a communist.
Than the came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out - because
I was not a trade unionist.
Than they came for me - and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Let me paraphrase his words:
First they came for Demanjuk and I did not speak out because it was not
me.
Than they came for Finkelstein and I did not speak out because it was
not me.
Than they came for Ruth Bettina Birn and I did not speak out because it
was not me.
Than the came for me but there was no one left to speak out for me.

But this time it is not the Nazi’s.

It makes no difference where Canberra Australia is. Their goal is to
harass this board members in the name of democracy. Way to go, If the do
not like what they see, the make everybody to pay for this. In the main
time, they like to keep their own privacy.

I have read the bible in the thirties and forties. And is exactly like
you say here. My father was a practicing Christian and I do remember
very well when he said that trouble will start in the far and middle
east. When this is going to happen, than the end of this world is near.
I do hope that he was right.

What we have today, people who are driven by greed, no compassion for
their fellow men. Perhaps this free enterprise supporters  will realize
that all their possession are of no value when we make the trip into
this inferno together. Equality at last.

Werner Knoll
Now the whole group of those who believed were of one heart and soul,
and no claimed private ownership of any  possessions, but everything
they owned was held in common. With great power the apostles gave their
testimony to the resurrection  of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was
upon them all.  There was
not a needy person among them, for as many as owned lands or  houses
sold them and brought the proceeds of what was sold.  They laid it at
the apostles' feet, and it was distributed to each as
any had need.

Other relevant passages include Matthew 25:14-46, Luke 6:20-31 and James
2:1-7.

Why should he be a racist for giving the facts of life? When you read
history, than you will find that parties or group welcome smaller groups
in order to defeat the common enemy. After this is accomplished this
minorities are not longer needed and become the next target.

The Reform party is a law and order party, so were the Nazies!

Somehow I do have the feeling that people do not know how the political
system works. I been told many times that voting for the man is
what counts. Wrong!

Party policies are established at conventions. If you like their
policies and are not a member of this party, than you vote for the man
who represents this party in your riding and not for somebody else you
like.

If You are a member of a particular party, you would campaign very hard
to get the right person nominated  to represent your party in the next
election.

In a perfect world, it should be the person who can do the job, not a
person you do like.

I know of what you are talking about. If you had a party who likes to
change thing for the better, this changes would bring some hardship
at the beginning, what chances would there be for this party to get
elected?

Surrey Leader February 28 1998

My words. We had elections here in Surrey on the municipal level was won
by some of the candidates in the 1996 election with less than 7.53% of
the ballots cast.

Last week was a by election and the voters turn out was a little more
than 10%. There were over 10 candidates running for one position.

As with most elections, the party with the finances and the support of
the news media as the foreskin for their sponsors (Business) has the
best chance of winning. Sanctimoniously they tell you after the election
that things are not right but in the main time the feel comfortable with

What makes you think that the North Korean have no God to worship? Read
the newspaper lately? Have you talked to our Native Indians how the were
stopped from practicing their religion by CHRISTIAN LEADERS? Fact, the
more a country is religious, the more people loose their freedom. Look
at Muslim countries.

Ask the American about being wealthy and free! Ask them if the have a
Human Wrong Commission?

Fact is that so many people came to Canada as first settlers because the
wanted to get away from the old country so they could practice their
religion freely. This were Christian countries the were fleeing from!

Ask Jehovah Witnesses what happen to them in Quebec.  

So before you come to any conclusions, do your home work first.

The Russian troops entered Berlin in 1945. I have been listening to the
German war report every day in the forties and there was always a report
what happened on the Eastern and Western front.

We were told up to the last day as the Americans and Russians were in
our backyard that we will win at the end :-)))

Barry. I worked in Northern BC for 23 years and let me tell you that
when the temperature dropped to 10 -20 below Fahrenheit, we had our
equipment running day and night. If we started moving our equipment at
first we had to do it very slowly.

Well with ego alone you can not win a war.

My father was born in the late 1800 and was dreaming about a better
world. If he would be around today and sees what is happening, he would
come to a different conclusion. 

I look at reality and see what the human race is all about. I can see
that religion in all cases is used to control people

We are not better than animals; come to think about it animals do not
kill for fun.

Lets look at it from another angle. Everything good I was thought about
the teaching of Jesus Christ did not help me. As a matter of fact by
being helpful to the needy, respecting authority, I was taken advantage
off.  Most of the people I have known in my later live did not live up
to this expectation of being good Christians. Sundays they gone to
church and asked for forgiveness and the rest of the week they started
to sin again. Some practicing Christians! 

(Why did you agree with me in my posting on a nuclear war?) ?  Well,
there are many things written in the Bible I do agree with. It is your
statement from the Bible which brought back the words of what my father
said about the end. You see he reasoned in 1945 that there are more wars
to come because of what he read in the Bible. Times have changed, this
planet cannot forever expand in population. If it is not an atomic war,
it could very well be a natural disaster of catastrophic proportion

Why should he be a racist for giving the facts of life? When you read
history, than you will find that parties or group welcome smaller groups
in order to defeat the common enemy. After this is accomplished this
minorities are not longer needed and become the next target.

The Reform party is a law and order party, so were the Nazies!
