Arthur Topham, a Canadian and resident of British Columbia, was charged in 2012 under the Criminal Code with “willfully promoting hatred” for some of his articles at his site, Radical Press.

On September 24, 2014, the Ontario Civil Liberties Association has publicly come out in support of Topham’s right to free expression and has created an online petition that already has nearly 200 signatories in under 24 hours (including myself).

Amazingly, he was charged in part for producing a satirical version of the seriously intended 1941 book, Germany Must Perish!, which actually called for the forced sterilization of Germans, calling it Israel Must Perish!, and replacing all references to Germans with Jews, to show the political and ethnic motivations behind these “hate crime” charges.

He was also charged in part for reproducing the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, despite it being sold on Amazon.ca and in Canadian brick-and-mortar bookstores.

The petition calls upon the British Columbia Attorney-General to retract her consent for the criminal proceedings against Topham, since such consent is required for any “hate crime” charges, directly illustrating the political nature of these charges.

For an extensive interview with Topham on his charges and other issues, see this December 2013 interview conducted by Canadian journalist, Joshua Blakeney.

Saudi ArabiaThat’s what Dennis Fetcho, host of Inside the Eye Live!, did on September 8, 2013, with his first broadcast from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, after hosting his show from Amman, Jordan, for several years.

Seven minutes into the show, he said what we already knew, but is good to hear direct confirmation of, that there is an unwritten rule, and a “chill” in the American ex-pat community of talking politics and religion while living in Saudi Arabia.

Despite that, he went on to talk about much of the politics in the region, and about some of his observations while living there.

Listen in to get a first-hand perspective of living and working in the capital of one of the world’s most tightly-controlled societies.
