"_Racist Held in Contempt_

 	Vancouver (JTA) -- A Canadian court has found a racist
telephone line to be in contempt of court for continuing to spread its
hate message after being told to shut down.

	The hate line, Canadian Liberty Net, which was based in
Vancouver, had moved its operations to Bellingham, Washington, and
continued from there after being ordered to shut down in March.

	Justice Max Teitelbaum ruled here last Friday that Canadian
Liberty Net violated a court injunction when it continued to operate
from the United States.

	The line, which shares a mailbox with a Vancouver based
neo-Nazi Skinhead group called ARM skins, changed its name to Canadian
Liberty Net in Exile and moved across the border after the March court
order to cease operations pending a full hearing before the Canadian
Human Rights Tribunal.

	The automated telephone service featured such speakers as
convicted hate propagandist Ernst Zundel and the California-based
leader of the White Aryan Nations, Tom Metzger, calling the Holocaust
a hoax, saying that there is a "kosher" food tax and that non-whites
are importing crime into Canada."

Ed. note: Wasn't the "kosher food tax" one of Schmidling's lines?
