Arthur Topham, Publisher and Editor http://www.radicalpress.com/

Whether one agrees with Arthur or not, Canadians should be very concerned this guy could wind up in jail for promoting his conspiracy theories. Whether one agrees with his conspiracy theory or not, that should not be the litmus test to decide whether what he said is "hateful" or not. Actually the law is not even qualified to know what is "hateful." My medical facts and theological arguments against homosexuality were found to be "hateful" and notwithstanding a handful of homosexuals have found Christ and repented of the homosexual lifestyle thanks to my ministry the courts over my own vigorous protestations decided I was "hateful" and saddled me with a $7500 fine, lifetime speech ban, and six digits worth of court costs that I couldn't hope to pay off if I tried......

Sodomite, NDP Director of Communications Shawn Dearn on the other hand wrote: "“Memo to CBC & All media: Stop calling the misogynist, homophobic, child-molesting Catholic church a ‘moral authority.’ It’s not.” (March, 2013) he also wrote in 2010, “Dear Pope Benedict — go f— yourself.” Not only was Dearn not charged with "hate speech" for writing these things, he was allowed to keep his job as Mulcair's Director of Communications when his nasty social media came to light. In my view Dearn is hateful, but in politically correct Canada where the media and judiciary is firmly in the grips of the left (Arthur would say the Jews) hell would freeze over before Dearn was held criminally liable for his so-called "hate speech"......

Arthur in my view isn't "hateful." I've read most of his articles on his site (http://www.radicalpress.com). Arthur is a bit of a publicity hound (most activists are) and he believes he has a calling to save the world from Jewish Bankers and Zionism and fight for free speech in Canada.

I corresponded with the guy via e-mail a little bit and without actually meeting him, I decided overall, I like the guy.....

Though Arthur should not only be acquitted, but indeed compensated for facing unjustified state harassment, thanks to the Whatcott decision I hold very little hope that Arthur will be acquitted. I predict he will be in jail and the media will portray him as a vicious Nazi.....

Few social conservatives and almost no liberals will cry foul that a harmless, perhaps eccentric, man was unjustly put in jail. The last time I spoke on the unjust jailing of a holocaust denier a lawyer and so-called "friend" of 5 + years promptly e-mailed me that he was disassociating himself from me and dropping my cases (they were practically dropped the day he took them anyways) and then after giving me a pompous lecture on "racism" blocked me from contacting him. Meh.......

Politically correct tyrants and cultural Marxist race baiters even have some alleged social conservatives trained to be their lapdogs, and hence why Canada is not so free anymore. Anyways, unless someone can actually read Arthur's site for themselves (Canada's media is not a reliable source of information when you are trying to find out about the Bill Whatcotts & Arthur Tophams of this world) and get back to me with an intelligent reason as to why he should be in jail, I will continue to publicize his persecution and call it unjust, even if Amnesty International and so-called conservatives who claim to support free speech in Canada decide he is expendable.........

~ Jesus Christ, Ch. 8, Verse 17


Monday, a trial in B.C. Supreme Court involving the case of Regina v Roy Arthur Topham commenced in Quesnel, located in the interior of British Columbia in an area known as the Cariboo.

In essence this isn't just the trial of Arthur Topham based upon a politically motivated and spurious Sec. 319(2) Criminal Code of Canada "Hate Propaganda" charge initiated by one of Canada's largest Zionist Jew lobby organization, B'nai Brith Canada.

It's far more than that. What will be on trial from October 26th to November 6th is the legal entitlement of all Canadians to exercise their Constitutionally guaranteed right to freedom of expression, both on and off the Internet - as written in Canada's Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Sec. 2b which states that "Everyone has the following fundamental freedoms: (b) freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication".

The outcome of the trial will determine whether or not Canada is, in fact, a truly open and free democracy or a nation whose sovereignty and freedom has been compromised by the wilful, premeditated actions of foreign lobbyists inimical to the country as a whole. In other words Freedom of Speech will be on trial.

Free Speech Takes a Slam in Arthur Topham Verdict

QUESNEL, BRITISH COLUMBIA, November 12, 2105. An eight woman, four-man jury delivered its mixed verdict at 11:27 this morning in the Arthur Topham free speech trial. M,r. Topham was charged with two counts of "willfully promoting hate" against a privileged minority, specifically Jews, under Canada's notorious Sec. 319 of the Criminal Code -- the hate law. The jury acquitted him on one count but convicted him on the other.

Almost immediately Crown Attorney Jennifer Johnston was on her feet wanting Mr. Topham's bail conditions amended and his website www.radicalpress.com shut down.

Not so fast, Judge Brian Butler ruled. She was told to file and application which will be heard Thursday November 19 by video hookup, with the judge in Vancouver and defence lawyer Barclay Johnson in Victoria.

The defence had sought to file a constitutional challenge at the start of proceedings. Judge Butler ruled that the challenge must await the end of the trial and a guilty verdict, should such be the case. Barclay Johnson explains that the judge said a constitutional challenge would have to await the establishment of "a factual context" is this case. "This case is very different in context from the Keegstra case in which the Supreme Court, in 1990, while finding that Sec. 319 does violate freedom of speech, did, by a narrow margin, uphold the law. "In Keegstra," says Mr. Johnson, " Jim Keegstra was teaching his views to a high school class, a captive audience. In this case, Mr. Topham ran a website. People had to willingly seek it out to read his opinions."

The constitutional challenge will be filed within the 30-day limit.

Mr. Topham, still in good spirits, pronounced himself a bit disappointed and puzzled by the jury's decision."It was so odd to find me guilty of one count but not both. I think the jury thought I wrote a call for the genocide of Jews in the satire Israel Must Perish. it's not even my book. I took the wording directly from Theodore Kaufman's book Germany Must Perish" written in 1941. "This would seem to confirm indirectly that Germany Must Perish is a work of hate and written by a Jew." yet, although then Detective Const. Terry Wilson of the B.C. Hate Squad said he's been aware of Germany Must Perish for some years, no charges were ever laid.

"Despite the acquittal on one count, this is a sad day for freedom of speech in Canada," said Paul Fromm, Director of the Canadian Association for Free Expression which has supported Mr. Topham from the beginning in 2007, when he first became the target of Zionist groups trying to shut him down for his criticism of Israel. "After today's verdict, it becomes just a little more difficult to criticize privileged minorities in Canada. However, the battle to rid this country of this thought control legislation will continue," he vowed.

I am definitely not a National Socialist and I am pretty certain something terrible happened in Germany from 1938-1945 (Arthur disagrees), still I believe Arthur should have an absolute right to question the holocaust and what he perceives to be Jewish supremacy. On some points I even think Arthur might have a point, I sure didn't care for how Canada's two largest Jewish groups intervened in my Supreme Court case in favour of censorship or how our Supreme Court (which half of the justices were Jewish) ruled against my right to make truthful, disparaging statements against homosexuality and its promotion to children.

While I note Jews are heavily represented in the porn industry, the abortion industry, and amongst the Bolshevik movement, I am pretty much of the mindset that many Jews are decent human beings. I rather like Ezra Levant and I regard Rabbi Reuven Bulka as a great man, a true friend of Christians and the pro-family movement. On the other hand Arthur Topham hasn't said all Jews are bad. In fact his wife is a Jew. He believes Israel is bad, Arthur calls Israel an apartheid state. When since did that view become illegal? How does one know Arthur is hateful simply because his worldview leads him to believe Israel is an evil state? I don't hate all Saudi Arabians, but I view Saudi Arabia as a supremacist, oppressive, and I would even say evil, apartheid (all Muslim) state. Should I be found guilty of hate speech for expressing this view about Saudi Arabia?

Regardless of where one stands on Arthur's views, I do believe all Canadians should support his right to free speech. Arthur is an extremely accessible man, one can easily contact him through his website http://www.radicalpress.com. Arthur will happily and honestly share with you how he perceives the world and what he perceives to be the truth. Arthur does profess a faith in Jesus Christ and he says he accepted Christ as Lord and Saviour in 1967 (the year I was physically born).

Anyways, I included Arthur's legal defense page at the bottom of this commentary, as I strongly support the right of Arthur and his website to exist.

GUILTY / NOT GUILTY!
by Arthur Topham
November 12, 2015

The British Columbia Supreme Court trail of R v Roy Arthur Topham concluded today in Quesnel’s Supreme Court at 11:27 a.m. when the Jury Foreman responded to the two charges laid against Arthur Topham and his website RadicalPress.com.

Both charges in the case were identical. Only the time period in which the evidence on the website was investigated differed. The charge itself read:

Count 1
Roy Arthur TOPHAM, between the 28th day of April, 2011 and the 4th day of May, 2012, inclusive, at or near Quesnel, in the Province of British Columbia, did by communicating statements, other than in private conversation, wilfully promote hatred against an identifiable group, people of the Jewish religion or ethnic origin, contrary to Section 319(2) of the Criminal Code.

Count 2
Roy Arthur TOPHAM, between the 29th day of January, 2013 and the 11th day of December, 2013, inclusive, at or near Quesnel, in the Province of British Columbia, did by communicating statements, other than in private conversation, wilfully promote hatred against an identifiable group, people of the Jewish religion or ethnic origin, contrary to Section 319(2) of the Criminal Code.

When asked by the Court Registrar what the verdict was for Count 1 the Jury Foreman replied GUILTY.

When asked a second time by the Court Registrar what the verdict was for Count 2 the Jury Foreman replied NOT GUILTY.

After announcing to the court the verdict in both counts Justice Bruce Butler then thanked the jury for their time and dedication to the judicial process and following that he instructed them that anything they had discussed during the course of their deliberations was to remain secret and that to divulge anything that had taken place was a criminal offence. After that the jury was released.

Immediately upon releasing the jury Crown Prosecutor Jennifer Johnson attempted to have Topham’s bail conditions changed, presumably in order to have more stringent conditions imposed other than those already in place.

Justice Butler was not prepared to entertain the Crown’s immediate offer. Defence Attorney Barclay Johnson addressed the Justice stating that if Crown wished to alter Topham’s bail conditions then the proper procedure would be for her to file an application to that effect and a hearing take place. Justice Butler agreed and a hearing on the matter was set for Thursday, November 19th, 2015.

Following that court adjourned.

At this point in time the question remains as to why a guilty verdict was handed down for Count 1 and why a not guilty verdict was handed down for Count 2.

Speculation is that Count 1 included evidence which the jury felt wilfully promoted hatred toward people of the Jewish religion or ethnic group. Count 1 also included the book Germany Must Perish! written by the Jewish author Theodore N. Kaufman as well as the parody/satire of Kaufman’s book by Topham titled Israel Must Perish! which Crown, from the onset of the trial, has adamantly claimed was a “book” that Topham wrote rather than merely a satire of Theodore N. Kaufmann’s book.

It is believed that the jury was convinced by Crown that Topham’s satire of the original book was in fact his own work and that Topham was therefore promoting the total destruction of the Jewish people which the jury felt was proof that Topham did “wilfully promote hatred toward an identifiable group, people of the Jewish religion or ethnic origin, contrary to Section 319(2) of the Criminal Code.”

The next stage in this unfolding drama could conceivably be an appeal based upon a Constitutional challenge to the criminal code’s section 319(2); one which had already been attempted back in June of 2015 but failed. It was deemed at the time of Justice Butler decision that a Charter application challenge to the legislation would be more appropriate following the outcome of the trial. Now that the outcome has resulted in a guilty verdict in Count 1 the way is open to again challenge Section 319(2) under Sec. 2b of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Sec. 319(2) of the Criminal Code must be repealed based upon a Charter challenge and the framework for such a challenge may finally be in place.
