B’nai Brith, the powerful Jewish secret society and watchdog group, claims it is “satisfied” with the draconian sentence imposed Thursday on the editor of an alleged “antisemitic” and “misogynistic” news site in Toronto:
In January, Your Ward News editor James Sears and publisher LeRoy St. Germaine were convicted of two counts each of wilful promotion of hatred, against both Jews and women, for their involvement with the Your Ward News hate rag.
On Thursday, Justice Richard Blouin sentenced Sears to the maximum penalty of twelve months in prison — six months for each count. The Crown had requested 12 months for Sears and six months for St. Germaine. St. Germaine’s sentence has been delayed until Aug. 29.
“This strong sentence was necessary to send a clear message — that repeated and remorseless attempts to spread hate in Canadian society will not be tolerated,” said Michael Mostyn, Chief Executive Officer of B’nai Brith Canada.
“The punishment fits the crime, and should help to deter similar hateful publications today and in the future.”
B’nai Brith has long been advocating for strong sentencing in this case.
Sears’ sentencing comes following a last-ditch attempt to re-open his trial, on the basis that his former lawyer had not adequately represented him.
By contrast, in 2017, B.C. man Arthur Topham was convicted of promoting hatred against Jews [for questioning the details of the Holocaust (ed.)], but received nothing more than a six-month curfew and a temporary ban on public online activity. Within a year and a half, Topham had been re-arrested and charged with breaching his probation conditions, after he continued to spread hate against Jews online.
In 2016, then-Minister for Public Services and Procurement Judy Foote banned Your Ward News from distribution via Canada Post, a ban that remains in effect to this day. B’nai Brith Canada intervened in that litigation in order to ensure that the ban would not be lifted.
In his decision, the judge expressed his frustration over the fact that the sentence had to be limited to a year, arguing that the penalty should have been a prison term of at least 18 months.
The newspaper will still be allowed to continue publishing as long as it does not break the criminal code.
Of course, this article conveniently fails to give any examples of the so-called “hate speech” the news site was charged with, but if the public doesn’t know what they did to deserved the punishment, how can this case act as a “deterrent” in the future? But it is in the interests of jewish power to keep the legal definition of “hate speech” as vague as possible so that anyone they decide they don’t like can be charged, convicted, and jailed at their whim.
Just a cursory reading of the website in question should make it clear to any fair-minded person that what they are reading is political satire targeting the radical liberals of Canada who, to a person, lack any sense of humor about themselves or the marxist drivel they peddle. But anyone in Canada who openly resists or dares question the Left’s radical agenda will be found guilty of ‘hate speech’.
James Sears’ real crime here is that he dared to laugh at the hypocrisy of Jews, but only Jews are allowed to decide what is funny.
This is an example of the website’s “hate” that the Canadian people need to be protected from:
