A jury in Quesnel, B.C. convicted Arthur Topham of communicating statements that wilfully promote hatred against Jewish people on his website in 2011 and 2012.
A jury in Quesnel, B.C. convicted Arthur Topham of communicating statements that wilfully promote hatred against Jewish people on his website in 2011 and 2012. 

B.C. man Arthur Topham has been convicted of promoting hatred against Jews through his website, RadicalPress.com, which the Crown said demonized Jews and forwarded anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.
On Thursday, a jury in Quesnel, B.C. agreed, convicting Topham of one count of communicating statements that wilfully promote hatred against Jews.
"It's a very important decision," said Harry Abrams of Victoria, who alerted B.C.'s Hate Crime Unit to the website.
"It's important to have a distinction between what's fair and reasonable and what is simply abuse and should not be tolerated in Canada by anybody," Abrams added.
During the 10-day trial Topham's lawyer defended the website as free speech, arguing that an article calling for the sterilization of all Jews was satire.

Support from white supremacists

Topham, 68, is a grandfather who has lived and worked in Quesnel, Cottonwood, and Bella Coola. Over the years, he's worked as a teacher, carpenter, placer miner, newspaper columnist — and as the publisher of RadicalPress.com.
His case attracted support from several Canadian white supremacists, including Paul Fromm, who attended the trial and helped fund the defence.
"We've supported Arthur Topham since the first time he got in trouble," Fromm said. "He got a complaint from a Jewish leader in Victoria for postings he had on Zionism (in 2007)."
Topham was charged with two counts of communicating statements that promote hatred. The jury convicted him on one count, which dealt with material from 2011 and 2012. He was found not guilty with regard to material from 2013.
Topham will be sentenced in 2016. This is the first internet hate crime conviction in B.C. since 2006.

Oh boy. This will open the flood gates.

Thank you Arthur Topham for having the courage to put your personal liberty on the line to help to bring, to a wider public attention, the rank hypocrisy and moral bankruptcy of Jewstice today

“Every calumny and falsehood published by the Jews are tokens of honor which can be worn by our comrades. He whom they decry most is nearest to our hearts and he whom they mortally hate is our best friend. If a comrade of ours opens a Jewish newspaper in the morning and does not find himself vilified there, then he has spent yesterday to no account. For if he had achieved something he would be persecuted, slandered, derided and abused. Those who effectively combat this mortal enemy of our people, who is at the same time the enemy of all Aryan peoples and all culture, can only expect to arouse opposition on the part of this race and become the object of its slanderous attacks.” ~ Adolf Hitler – page 276, Mein Kampf
