If I had not become familiar this whole s13.1 mess and I was looking at hiring someone like Marc, there is not a snowball's chance in hell I would if I googled him. People are Googled all the time now when they are being considered for work. In hyper sensitive, politically correct Toronto, even a faint whiff of racism is enough to have you shown the door.
As you can see from that search result the very first thing you read is:Marc Lemire - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Marc Lemire is a figure in the Canadian white supremacist movement. He works closely with neo-Nazi leader Paul Fromm, and is the webmaster of the ...
Who is going to hire this guy? I mean, seriously, who? If you were Marc Lemire, what choices would you have? There's punishment, then there's punishment. Far, far worse people have gotten off from much more serious transgressions. It's not like he drugged and raped a 13 year old kid or something.
I have to say that I am surprised that Marc has not issued some sort of public statement addressing these issues.
Exactly right, Narrow Back.
They couldn't get Marc Lemire using the hate speech provisions of the criminal code because he didn't write anything that violated it. So, they went after him using the CHRA and investigated him for six years for the words of other people. That didn't work, so now they are ramping up the smear campaign so they can make sure his life is left in ruins.
Since the CHRC has found that Marc Lemire is not guilty of spreading hate propaganda, I would like to know how Harry and others can justify continuing to ruin his life. If the goal is really to stop hate speech, why continue to attack someone who is not writing hate speech?
What is Lemire's "crime"? (Other than, perhaps, knowing the "wrong" people a decade ago).
If the attack on Lemire continues when he is not writing hate speech, then we've crossed two lines. The first line is that someone is being punished for something he is/was (supposedly) thinking, rather than something he is doing. And, now it is no longer enough to allow criminal courts or the CHRT to mete out punishment. Even if the intended victim is found innocent of any wrongdoing, the censors will take it upon themselves to completely ruin their lives.
Is this the kind of "justice" you want in Canada, Harry? Or is there a part of you that cringes when you see it explained?
