Canadian football star fined over Holocaust denial

B’nai B’rith Canada lodges complaint against Khalif Mitchell for sharing anti-Semitic, anti-Israel videos on Twitter

The Canadian Football League fined a star football player Thursday after he was accused of posting anti-Semitic and anti-Israel content on his Twitter account.

Montreal Alouettes defensive lineman Khalif Mitchell was fined an undisclosed amount for posting messages which the CFL said violated its social media policy.
“There is absolutely no place in our league for commentary used to divide or disparage others along the lines of sex, race, religion or sexual orientation,” CFL commissioner Jeffrey Orridge said.

Understanding Judaism - Understanding Anti-semitism by Herve Ryssen (translated by CW Porter)

Ryssen has written many books on the subject - this pdf are extracts from the books (so there is some repetition)

Probably worth lobbying to include it as required reading in Holocaust studies.

Damn I am a proud Canadian. It is just wonderful how we protect those poor maligned innocent Jews from such blasphemy!

Just imagine. Someone expressed an "unpopular" opinion that might have possibly hurt the feelings of someone LOOKING to have their feelings hurt ~ and someone gets MONEY from it.

Hope that unthinking cruel brute learned his lesson. Golly gee. We cannot go around insulting Jews. Someone might think one is ... an Auntie Semite!

All the more reason to rally around Arthur Topham!

Giggles. Now to see what my comment gets in reaction ... the one I put in the Times of Israel. GOD all the people in there damning this fellow... pathetic. I love to plant a doozy comment then just leave them to stew and fuss over my words. I never bother to respond ... is that trolling of a sort? They are SO PREDICTABLE...
