South Africa should introduce a register for people who make racist comments: High Court ruling

Ryan Brothwell27 February 2020

In light of the seriousness of the racial attitudes harboured by some in our society, the time may have come for the government to consider establishing a “register” of offenders of this type of conduct.

This was one of the findings in an Eastern Cape High Court ruling this week, which focused on the case of a woman who reportedly used the k-word against a handyman who worked in her retirement village.

“The purpose of this register would be to enter the details of those who relentlessly treat the foundational values that underpin our constitution with disdain and who undermine the efforts in building a cohesive non-racial society,” the court said in its judgement.

“This may also serve as a constant reminder to anyone that, to refer to other people of a different race with disparaging and degrading descriptions, is contempt to the progressive agenda this nation adopted in 1994 in its quest to build a non-racial society.”

The issue of racial comments remains an incredibly sensitive topic in South Africa with the country’s courts dealing with a number of cases around the issue.

People who publicly use derogatory words and other expressions of racism may face legal sanctions including private claims for defamation as well as criminal charges for crimen injuria.

Despite these harsh consequences, there have been numerous incidents of people publicly using overtly racist and often taboo words to describe others, says Hugo Pienaar, a director at law firm Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr who was commenting on the issue in 2019.

“The Constitution prohibits racism through safeguarding every person’s rights to dignity and equality. It also expressly limits the right to freedom of expression to exclude the advocacy of hatred which is based on race,” he said.

“Recent cases have emphasised that our society and law is taking a zero-tolerance policy towards racism and the use of derogatory language.”

Croatia Gay Effigy Condemned: MP Files Criminal Charges Against Carnival | Arsen Bauk Boško Ćosić | Screenshot

February 24, 2020 – MP Arsen Bauk SDP (Social Democratic Party) of Croatia has announced that he will file a criminal complaint against the organizers of the “Bakova povorka”, which took place in the town of Imotski, at the local police station for burning an effigy of a gay couple. Zoran Milanović, President of Croatia, has demanded an apology from organizers and an appropriate response from the relevant legal institutions.

Numerous comments have appeared on social networks condemning the Imotski carnival (Bakova povorka), where an effigy of a same-sex couple holding a child was burned at the ceremony to widespread cheers. The child was presented in the form of SDP MP Nenad Stazić with a five-pointed star (Yugoslavia) on his forehead, according to Ana Roksandić/RTL Dnevnik on February 24, 2020.

Bauk to File Complaint Under Article 325 Croatia Criminal Code

Arsen Bauk has announced that he will file a criminal complaint against Milivoj Đuka, the organizer of the carnival parade, at the Imotski Police Station on Monday for the offense noted under Article 325 of the Criminal Code of Croatia.

There is a tradition of masks in Dalmatia, in which the people normally express their dissatisfaction with powerful political and social figures. However, the lynching of minority groups runs contrary to that tradition.

Croatia President Demands Appropriate Response for Shameful Event

Croatia President Zoran Milanović also responded to the “shameful event” on Monday morning.

“The symbolic burning of same-sex partners with a foster child in Imotski is a sad, inhumane and totally unacceptable act in the guise of the ‘Bakova povorka’ festivities. The organizers who staged this shameful event, in the name of tradition, deserve the strongest public condemnation because of the hatred they have demonstrated toward for others. Intolerance and inhumanity are not and will not be a Croatian tradition. I am seeking their public apology and the appropriate response reaction from the relevant institutions, especially as many children watched this event, thus witnessing the spread of hatred and inciting violence,” he wrote on Facebook.

Don’t Kid Yourself, the “Free World” Doesn’t Enjoy Much Free Speech

Former Polish Priest Indicted for Hate Speech and Holocaust Denialby Katarzyna Markusz, Jewish Telegraphic Agency – February 19, 2020

WARSAW, Poland (JTA) — A former priest involved in Poland’s nationalist movement has been indicted on hate speech and Holocaust denial charges. The District Prosecutor’s Office in the city of Wrocław, in western Poland, brought three indictments against Jacek Miedlar. Another claims that he insulted the late prime minister Tadeusz Mazowiecki. Miedlar, who pleaded not guilty, could face up to three years in prison if convicted on the charges.

“Dear ladies and gentlemen, that synagogues can stand here on our Polish soil in Wroclaw, and that Dutkiewicz [mayor of Wroclaw] and Jews can get drunk in them with Talmudic hatred, this is only the result of our tolerance,” Miedlar said at a nationalist march in Wroclaw on Nov. 11, 2017. The prosecutor’s office said the speech incited hatred.

About 3,000 people clapped and chanted slogans such as “Great Independent Poland” in response.

The prosecution also highlighted other statements inciting hatred against Jews and Holocaust denial from 2018.That year, on Dec. 13 in Wroclaw, Miedlar publicly set fire to the portrait of Mazowiecki, calling him a “communist scab” who “never concealed his Jewish-communist Bolshevik inclinations.” Mazowiecki’s son filed a complaint to the prosecutor’s office.

Mazowiecki, who died in 2013, was an anti-communist activist and the first Polish prime minister after the fall of communism. Although he was a Catholic, with no Jewish roots, his political opponents often accused him of Jewish descent to discourage people from voting for him.

Trudeau’s Canada: One Law for the Thugs but A Different Law for Reporters & the Rest of Us

Hamilton railroad blockade: Know-nothing protesters, and Rebel reporter threatened with arrest (again)
By David Menzies | February 26, 2020

The “new abnormal” in Canada:

Antifa types camping out on railroad tracks is A-OK as far as law enforcement is concerned, but a journalist chronicling such lawlessness is threatened with… Arrest?!

The latest Whac-A-Mole pop-up railway protest against the GasLink pipeline is now taking place in Hamilton, Ontario, inconveniencing thousands of GO Transit commuters and bringing yet another halt to freight train traffic. The blockade, ostensibly in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en natives of British Columbia, was erected just hours after a similar blockade was dismantled near Belleville, Ontario, on Monday.

Here’s what I saw on the scene in Hamilton:

The protesters were completely unable to articulate their rationale for shutting down the rail traffic.

It did not appear that there was a single native present (although, laughably, the Toronto Star did manage to interview a woman who said she “identified” as being native)

More two-tier “justice” was on display: while police turned a blind eye to the squatters, I was threatened with arrest for practicing journalism.

Welcome to Justin Trudeau’s Canada!

Look Who’s Bullying Free Speech in Bulgaria (whatever happened to freedom of political expression/)

WJC President Ronald S. Lauder extends deep thanks to Bulgarian government for quelling neo-Nazi Lukov March

WJC President Ronald S. Lauder extends deep thanks to Bulgarian government for quelling neo-Nazi Lukov March

NEW YORK – World Jewish Congress President Ronald S. Lauder expressed his personal gratitude on Saturday to the political and judiciary authorities in Bulgaria, including Prime Minister Boyko Borisov and Sofia Mayor Yordanka Fandakova, for putting a long-awaited end to the annual torch-lit demonstration that generally draws thousands of neo-Nazi marchers from across Europe to celebrate Holocaust-era General Hristo Lukov, whose movement sent more than 11,000 Jews to their deaths in Treblinka. 
This year, the organizers of the march agreed to obey a Supreme Administrative Court decision to uphold a municipal court order limiting the event to only flower-laying at Lukov’s home. The Sofia Municipal Police also reportedly advised the organizers of the march that any person who violated this order would be stopped. In the end, only some 60 supporters were in attendance.
“For the first time in more than a decade, the Jewish community of Bulgaria has been spared its yearly day of fear and apprehension from shameful flame-wielding thugs who parade through the streets to glorify the very ideology that brought the near destruction of the Jewish people,” Lauder said. “At this frightening time of rising antisemitic activity across the world, this is a moment of true victory for the Jewish community, the people of Bulgaria, and all promoters of justice and tolerance worldwide.”
“The World Jewish Congress is deeply grateful to the officials within the Bulgarian political and judicial sectors, including Prime Minister Boyko Borisov, Foreign Minister Ekaterina Zakharieva and Deputy Foreign Minister & National Coordinator against Antisemitism Georg Georgiev, Sofia Mayor Yordanka Fandakova, Prosecutor General Ivan Geshev, and the many others have been sincerely responsive to our concerns over this inciteful demonstration,” Lauder added.  
“Our partnership to ensure the safety and security of the Bulgarian Jewish community has always been extremely positive and receptive, and the government’s proactive efforts in recent years in mobilizing to ban the march despite the many legal obstacles is a clear testament to its true support and friendship,” Lauder added. “Their cooperation last year with the WJC and the  Organisation of Jews in Bulgaria, Shalom, in convening the first-ever March for Tolerance to oppose this scourge was another critical demonstration of their dedication to helping us work to quell these flames of hatred, and it was an action that spoke louder than words. This year, only a few dozen neo-Nazi thugs showed up. Next year, let’s hope that the month of February will pass without a single disturbance of this kind.”

Remembering the 1945 Dresden Holocaust

Lady Michele Renouf

Remembering the 1945 Dresden Holocaust

All praise to the 2020 organisers and indeed this year to the protective diligence of the Dresden police force! (Perhaps asking my arresting officers in 2018 about how many arrests they’d made of the Antifa – who flaunt huge banners “Bomber Harris Do It Again” – somehow had hit home?)

Owing to an effectively policed route which meant the Marchers passed in full view of residents in high-rise apartments blocks, Dresden citizens saw the miles of some 2000 international sympathisers who filed by, black and national flags teaming in silent cry for holocaust justice. The mourners instinctively adhered to disciplined rules of respectful conduct commensurate with the Day. A Day when Beethoven drowned out, by contrast the grotesquely offensive Antifa in their rap and raucous scorn for civilians ( mainly women and children) burnt alive by everafter fashionable “moral bombing”.

Together with Slavic refugees who were fleeing from advancing Jewish Bolsheviks, the glorious edifice of Baroque Dresden had been turned into an holocaustal offering.

Today although the edifice has been somewhat rebuilt, the sole monument to Dresden’s torched civilians ‘says’ it all in a two-line carved inscription on the entrance surround to a public WC in the city square – an appalling Remembrance little more, in effect, than graffiti on a toilet wall.

Lest We Forget,

Michele Lady Renouf

H&D assistant editor Peter Rushton was among more than 2,000 marchers in Dresden yesterday who commemorated the 75th anniversary of the RAF and USAAF terror-bombing of the city on 13th-14th February 1945.

Lady Michèle Renouf with Thuringia NPD leader Thorsten Heise: the banner reads – “Where Justice becomes Injustice, Resistance becomes a Duty!”

The Gedenkmarsch was superbly organised by Maik Müller of Dresden NPD, and was supported not only by NPD branches from across Germany, but by many other parties and by supporters from other countries including Ireland, France, Sweden, Croatia, Italy, Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania, Belgium, the Netherlands and USA – even from as far away as Japan and Australia.

Despite efforts by the usual antifa rabble to block the march route, we were able to proceed through a residential area of Dresden (many locals observing from nearby flats) to a rally point next to the central train station, where speeches included a message from Wolfram Nahrath, attorney for persecuted patriots and defenders of truth and justice including the jailed authors Ursula Haverbeck (now 91) and Horst Mahler (now 84) and the British traditional Roman Catholic Bishop Richard Williamson.

As can be seen and heard in attached video links, the respectful and dignified conduct of the marchers contrasted with grotesque behaviour of ‘antifascist’ counter-demonstrators who failed in their objectives. The rentamob’s disrespectful cacophony was drowned out by solemn classical music accompanying the march.

The UK Sunday Times today could not resist publishing an attack on the demonstration, written by the paper’s foreign editor Peter Conradi, a well-known Jewish-Zionist historian. As has become the habit of establishment journalists, Mr Conradi seeks to minimise the Dresden death toll and accuses 21st century German patriots of exaggerating it.

A Dresden spokesman for AfD (the fast-growing patriotic-conservative party Alternative für Deutschland) had quoted a death toll of close to 100,000 – a figure which Conradi compares to the claims of “Holocaust-denying historians”, while himself insisting on a figure of 25,000.

The actual Dresden death toll remains difficult to assess precisely due to the large number of refugees from the East who had packed into the city at the time of the bombing. Yet one very recently released document from the postwar secret British propaganda agency IRD (Information Research Department) offers us some clues.

H&D reports this document for the first time today: click here to read: Propaganda and Dresden’s Holocaust – The Secret British File.

In Ex-Stasi Merkel’s Germany, If A Nationalist Gets Elected, Just Reverse the Results

BERLIN — German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s centre-right party has condemned the election of a far-right district mayor in central Germany with the votes of mainstream party members in the local council.

Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, the leader of Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union, or CDU, said late Sunday the election of far-right NPD party member Stefan Jagsch in the small Hesse town of Altenstadt-Waldsiedlung needs to be reversed.

German news agency dpa reported Jagsch was elected unanimously Thursday after the post remained vacant for weeks.

Local CDU member Norbert Szielasko, who also voted for Jagsch, said the council elected him because, “we don’t have anybody else, especially nobody young who knows how to use computers and send emails.”

Lawmakers of other mainstream parties also expressed shock. NPD is known for its openly anti-migrant stance.

The Ongoing Torment of Political Prisoner Arthur Topham

B.C. man convicted of online hate crime back in court

Arthur Topham allegedly breached probation order

A  B.C. man convicted of an anti-Semitic hate crime is back in court. 

Arthur Topham was convicted in 2015 of one count of  communicating online statements that wilfully promoted hatred against Jewish people.

In 2017,  a B.C. Supreme Court judge sentenced him to a six-month conditional sentence, two years probation, a curfew and a ban on posting online.

This week, the B.C. Prosecution Service said Topham is back before the courts for allegedly breaching the terms of his probation order. 

Online posts demonized Jews

Topham, a retired teacher, was charged with hate crimes while producing an online newspaper from his rural home near Quesnel. …

Topham’s lawyer argued the posts were political satire, did not incite violence and included materials that could easily be ordered on Amazon.

First B.C. hate crime trial in a decade

Topham, who was living along a remote road 700 kilometres north of Vancouver attracted high profile supporters.Self proclaimed “white nationalist”  Paul Fromm  helped fund Topham’s defence and travelled to Quesnel for the trial. Monika Schaefer, who served jail time in Germany for Holocaust denial, also attended court.

As well, Topham had the support from the Ontario Civil Liberties Association, which champions free speech.

When Topham’s case went to trial, it was the first hate crime prosecution in B.C. in almost a decade.

In 2008, Keith Francis William [Bill] Noble of Fort St. John was sentenced to jail time for promoting hatred against identifiable groups on the internet.  Topham is scheduled to return to court on the probation breach allegation on Feb, 19, with a trial scheduled for March 12
