Here is a graph I created on the causes of hate crimes, based on the causes of rape meme, which exposes the hypocrisy of the corporate mass media in attempting to link alleged or real hate crimes in the UK to the democratic majority Brexit vote. Help it to go viral!

On a special October 16, 2014 episode of Exposing Faux Capitalism, I interviewed Arthur Topham, who has been charged as a political thought criminal for allegedly violating Canada’s Criminal Code provisions for “willfully promoting hatred,” for his writings at his site, RadicalPress.com.
In this interview, the issues we discussed included:
– The Ontario Civil Liberties Association supporting his case and calling for a repeal of all “hate crime” provisions in the Criminal Code and circulating a petition calling for the B.C. Attorney General to revoke her consent for the prosecution of Arthur Topham.
– He was charged with a crime after the Human Rights Commission was no longer to hear so-called hate cases in 2012.
– The tight control of the media and the blackout on mass media coverage of his case ever since November 2012 with a single National Post article.
– The phony media, with so-called liberal newspapers like the Toronto Star not making counter-point arguments to the supposed right-wing National Post newspaper on their article.
– The inconsistencies in the charge and with his prosecution.
– The Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees those charged “to be tried within a reasonable time,” yet he was charged in 2012, and his trial has finally been scheduled for October 2015.
– The political nature of the crime, with the Attorney General of the province having to sign off on it.
– The selective application of the law, with others not prosecuted, despite doing similar or more things than Arthur Topham did.
Ontario Civil Liberties Association launches online petition in support of Arthur Topham against politically motivated “hate crime” charge

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.
