Why I Ought to Sue Ezra Levant
by Arthur Topham
November 11, 2012
As one can see from Ezra’s photo that appeared on the back cover of his 1996 book, YouthQuake, a production of The Fraser Institute, a right wing think tank that tends to promote Zionist ideals masked under deceptive language, he was at that time a fairly chipper-looking, albeit geeky looking eager beaver 24 year old young man already marked for fame and fortune.
In fact he’s actually the same age as my eldest daughter and obviously grew up in the same Canadian cultural setting and time period albeit it’s highly unlikely that his parents were hippies like my children’s parents were.
At the time Ezra’s book came out Michael Walker, Executive Director for The Fraser Institute remarked in its Preface that it was, “…written by one of the brightest student interns ever to work at The Fraser Institute. It is important because of the insights it provides into the mind-set of the next generation of Canadian leaders. For, certainly, Ezra Levant is going to be a Leader.”
Well, sixteen years later and many a mile down the road to fame and fortune we see that Ezra the younger, now 40 years, is in a position of some importance within the Zionist mainstream media in Canada having his own talk show on the SunTV News Network out of Toronto called The Source and having within his power the ability to help set the nation’s trends in terms of influencing television viewers across the country and beyond.
Now recently, having been charged by the Queen of England for supposedly committing a “hate” crime against “people of the Jewish religion or ethnic origin” I noticed that Ezra had taken a keen interest in my case and requested an interview with my lawyer Doug Christie to discuss it on his talk show. Having been caught up in the “hate speech” web himself over the past number of years with the same culprit responsible for having laid the present charge against me I could see why he would find the subject of some interest and want to discuss it further.
Of course Ezra didn’t have the chutzpah to invite me on to his show like he did in the case of Marc Lemire who also has been battling with the B’nai Brith “Hate Speech” Internet censors for so long that I can’t recall when he first was attacked. Marc, like Ezra and myself, also was falsely accused by this same chronic complainer Richard Warman; a deluded die-hard deceiver and Zionist psychophant who has filed more suits in his closet of hate than most Jewish tailors manage to do in a lifetime!
So I figured, second best, that it was a good thing Ezra should at least interview Doug Christie and get some measure of response from the man who has been defending innocent victims of this hate lobby for decades now. When Marc Lemire sent me the url to Ezra’s show later the same day I was pleased to see that it had taken place. Then, after watching Ezra’s performance, I readily saw that for all of his feigned concern over the injustices of the infamous sec. 13 legislation and now section 319(2) of the Criminal Code of Canada, both of which Warman and Harry Abrams and the B’nai Brith have been and are using in their ongoing witch hunts to silence criticism of Israel and the Zionist doctrine, there he was on national television doing his damnedest to slander and libel my name ostensibly in the interests of ‘free speech’!
Oi vey I thought to myself, with friends like this who needs enemies? Here he is, one of Canada’s most vocal advocates for freedom of speech on the Internet and he’s sitting there telling the world blatant lies about me and making me out to be some sort of crazed Jew hating anti-Semite!
Within the short span of about six minutes good ol’ free speech advocate Ezra Levant managed to slander, defame and libel me as many times as possible punctuating every comment or question to lawyer Doug Christie with at least one or more ad hominem epithets all in order to show the world just how grand and liberal the mainstream media truly is when it comes to freedom of expression.
Yes, said Ezra, that Topham is an “anti-Semite” and “offensive” and an “anti-Zionist [which is] code for anti-Semitic” and his website is “gross” and his comments “repulsive” and everything that he does is “motivated by a form of malice” and on top of that I also think he’s a “nobody” and an “anti-Semitic idiot and a right wing wacko” and you know really when it comes right down to it “I HATE ARTHUR TOPHAM!”
It was truly amazing to watch and listen to all his hyper-charged frenetic frothing regarding my person all the while waxing eloquent about I was surely going to win my case. Well, being a Zionist insider maybe he’s privy to something most people don’t know. Time will tell.
Now the question needs to be asked, “Where is the deception in this apparently earnest show of support for freedom of speech on the part of Ezra Levant?”
When Ezra first introduced his topic to his television audience his initial statement was that he knew of me because I had been “spamming” him for years which, of course, was an outright lie. Ezra and myself had in the past exchanged emails and I was registered on his blog where I contributed commentary on some of articles. On top of that other supporters of his had gallantly attempted to solicit Ezra to lend his support to my case with Canadian Human Rights Commission but he merely dismissed them by stating that I was an “anti-Semite” and that he didn’t deal with such creatures. When Ezra eventually asked to be taken off my list I respected his request and did so.
In this vein therefore I would ask readers to take a look at an article which I wrote and published on my website that was written back in July of 2008; one that deals with precisely the same issues that are still being argued and discussed today with regard to Ezra’s one-sided view of who exactly ought to be given positive exposure when it comes to Freedom of Speech and who is deserving of the type of defamation that one witnessed during his Nov. 8th interview with Doug Christie.
During the show the point was made, by Ezra Levant and Doug Christie, that both hate and love are emotions which should never ever fall under the control of any government agency and that they ought to remain sacrosanct and protected by law. And that is true. And for that reason alone I could say that I ought to love Ezra Levant for espousing such a view just as I love Doug Christie for taking a similar and adamant stand on the same issue.
But, as a person who, in years, has also come to realize that our nation is not functioning by the rule of law any longer and also by the fact that the Deputy Assistant Attorney General of the province of British Columbia (an appointed minion of the ‘Crown’ who in all likelihood is pro-Zionist) has saw fit to actually proceed with an attempt to find me guilty of an alleged “thought crime” by the most notorious witch hunting Jewish lobby group on the face of the planet, I find myself having to protest to the maximum this deceitfully sly slight of hand which Ezra Levant has used to tarnish my good name and to prejudice the Canadian public against me right from the start of my impending trial.
Ezra Levant is a lawyer as well as a Zionist mouthpiece for the msm and he is fully cognizant of the fact that while Sec. 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act is now in the process of being wiped off the books by the federal government he is also well aware that Section 319(2) of the Criminal Code of Canada is still in full operation and remains a lethal weapon for use by the BÃ¢â‚¬â„¢nai Brith lobby here in Canada. They obviously intend to use it to their fullest potential in order to set a precedent in law that would, should I be convicted of this phoney charge, affect any other Canadian who might at some time in the future try to speak and write the truth about what Zionism truly represents or who might question the genocide of the Palestinian people in Gaza by the Israeli government. And so in that context I find it absolutely disgraceful and outrageous and malicious that someone in Ezra’s position would be doing his utmost to bad mouth me in every way possible at a time when this despicable action is being taken against me by B’nai Brith Canada.
There are of course other more sinister aspects to the hate-mongering of Ezra Levant which should be noted and addressed. The world is full of medicated mind-controlled zombies these days and should one of them happen to hear Ezra Levant going on and on about how how he hates me and what a malicious idiot and anti-Semite I am there is then the possibility that my life could be endangered by such acts of premeditated hatred and slander. Add to that the fact that I am now forced to live unarmed in an area where there is no emergency police assistance close by and you can see why I am a bit concerned about these spiteful lies that Levant has been spreading throughout the msm via Sun News Network. In this sense, rather than loving Ezra, I think I ought to sue Ezra Levant and the Sun News Network for having jeopardized both my physical safety and the safety of my family as well as prejudicing the public against me via his libelous and hurtful lies.
Four years ago when composing the critique mentioned above I wrote, “But, alas, I cannot, at this point and in good conscience, condemn Ezra Levant fully for some of the errors he is making. Whether it is conscious on his part or just plain ignorance of all the facts I truly do not know… when I was 36, I too was unaware of the degree of involvement in global politics that the Zionists actually represented. It took me close to sixty years to finally figure it out so in that context there is always hope that a bright young man like Ezra Levant, will come to realize the error of his ways [but] if you are going to be a “Leader” here in Canada then you are going to have to hit the books some more and get a much firmer grasp on the issue of Political Zionism and learn how this alien and anti-Christian Talmudic doctrine is affecting the Canadian landscape. It behooves you to understand the primary motives of those who are determined to turn this nation into another Communist gulag. Not just for the sake of those “individual Jews who love “freedom of speech” but for the rest of us non-Jew Canadians who also cherish these very same ideals.”
