Richard Warman Sues Blazingcatfur For Linking To "Far Right" Mark Steyn

About 18 months ago everybody's favourite Ex-Canadian Human Rights Commission employee Richard Warman launched one of his many, as in very many, SLAPP suits against yours truly for, among other dastardly deeds, linking to the "far-right web site". Sheesh everybody knows Mark Steyn is controversial.

It gets better. I'm also being sued for linking to a web site while specifically referring to "the allegations" against Richard Warman. But what else would you expect from Warman, a man so tone deaf he actually believed he could win the support of both the Canadian Jewish Congress and B'nai Brith to file a hate crime complaint against the Jewish Defense League, who had dared offend him by showing the Geert Wilders film "Fitna".

Warman is also suing for comments made by multiple readers. In one instance for the heinous crime of calling him a "Bully". We all know what this SLAPP suit is really all about. Warman is using every lawfare tactic he can to prevent a discussion in the public interest of Section 13 (1) and the CHRC. A discussion in which he must feature prominently.

Warman is suing me for $500,000.00 Dollars. A ridiculous amount for an equally ridiculous lawsuit. Nonetheless even nuisance suits such as this must be defended against. To date legal fees have run me about 10K. I've covered that from my own pocket. I am now asking for your help. I know times are hard for many of us but if every reader who visited daily were to contribute 5 or 10 dollars then that would go a long way to helping all of us out.

This is your fight too, well except for the lawyer stuff anyway;)

A cheque will be in the mail.

Blazing Cat Fur  – (9:18 PM)  

Par for the course sadly. We have good legal representation. We will win. But we will need support.

Thank you Sanwin.

Can't believe that creep is still pulling this shit. The Kitty has been fed. Support you 100%.

Pieface  – (9:57 PM)  

This is horribly discouraging, to say the very least. Never thought when I first read of Mr. Warman's exploits that he would travel down this nasty fork in the road...

Blazing Cat Fur  – (10:09 PM)  

Not a police state Dag but a state with silly libel laws definitely. Thank you all for your kind words and support!

Patrick Ross  – (10:13 PM)  

Richard Warman, like certain other people, clearly overestimates the value of his reputation, and underestimates the extent to which he himself harmed it.

been around the block  – (10:17 PM)  

I will send a cheque, BCF, and only wish it could be more. Freedom comes at a price.

BTW, what's happening with Warmen's suit against you, Kathy, Kate, et al.? Shouldn't there be a law against this kind of SLAPP suit?

scream  – (10:20 PM)  

I know it has already been asked but, can you counter sue for damages, harassment, etc?

Blazing Cat Fur  – (10:20 PM)  

Thanks BatB, I am not involved in the suit he has against Ezra FiveFeet,SDA and Freedo. It is working it's way through the courts, the motion for discovery won by Ezra means that Warmans hard drive will be subject to forensic examination, when that happens I do not know.

Blazing Cat Fur  – (10:22 PM)  

Not realy scream at best when we win we will be awarded costs, which unfortunately never equal real costs.

Black Mamba  – (10:23 PM)  

Oh Mr. Warman, Sir, please don't sue me! I think you're super-cool, and real smart and sane and handsome and ethical and you probably smell nice and everything! Why that's what everyone thinks, just everyone, they all say what a nice man you are, and how they don't find you creepy, not even a bit, and I'd report someone straight to the police if they said anything different.... !!!

(Think that'll do the trick, BCF, failing to placate Warman being against the law and all? My measly donation will be hurtling slowly towards you over the inturtubes.)

Blazing Cat Fur  – (10:31 PM)  

That made my night Black Mamba. Thank you.

Let's make the little kitty grow really big, with sharp claws and teeth. I wish I were really rich. Our forefathers shed blood to deal with people like Little Dicky. We only need to shed a little money.

done - $20 isn't as much as I'd like, but an old school buddy just dropped from a massive jammer and I'm taking an unplanned flight to the coast tomorrow.

I wonder if our Conservative Govt is happy to see so many Conservative bloggers being harassed by these people, maybe they hate us equally. If not, they would have definitely done something to get rid of it.

Steve Miller, Writer of Stuff  – (12:46 AM)

Blazing Cat Fur  – (1:13 AM)  

Mathew yes a money order is fine thanks, and thanks to all of you!

AST  – (1:45 AM)  

Who knew we had Oceania on our northern border? If you win, can you be awarded legal fees and costs?

I wonder how many blogs Google hosts in Canada. I would think this would be worth something to them to chip in on, since people like Warman could force anybody using blogger to quit blogging.

Fed the kitty.

Blazing Cat Fur  – (10:14 AM)  

Thanks Rose, yes a cheque made payable to Christopher Ashby in trust and mailed to the addres provided will be fine.

Thanks so much for your help Rose.

The support shown by all of our readers is greatly appreciated.

pattyjean  – (11:11 AM)  

Can I just put "BCF defence fund" on the envelope? Because I don't trust Canada Post employees to safely deliver mail that they don't like.

Really, they have mangled my newsletters from Real Women of Canada for years now. It's quite instructive to see which mail gets here intact, and which gets the ripped and scrunched up treatment.

Unfortunately for the kitty, one of my old pit bulls (I have 2 that are nearly 14, both rescued 12 years ago from abuse) needed a series of tests this month from the vet, which set me back nearly 1K. So I think I'd better send a small check once a month, rather than the big one I'd like to send right now.

I recently cancelled my National Post subscription after the once beloved paper made my blood pressure soar one time too many, and you became my substitute. So you can at least have that paltry sum.

Blazing Cat Fur  – (11:16 AM)  

Yup that will be fine, Thanks so much PattyJ!

scream  – (11:44 AM)  

Didn't Bernie Farber help create this monster? Perhaps he'd be willing to help out here, or is he on board with this harassment?

Blazing Cat Fur  – (11:46 AM)  

Gee I'd have to ask him, we didn't really broach that topic over lunch;)

scream  – (11:53 AM)

As for the source of your current legal woes, may I just say that it is a turrible thang he does h'yar, and filing a lawsuit agin' someone just 'cuz the biological fairer sex what brung you into this world, runs out from under the porch to bite passersby, is not really kosher, y'know?

Let us see.

You are surrounded by your readers, a few hundred in Ontario alone. These people consider you a friend; they care about you, as a friend would. And, based on the shower of schlachtknechtgeld, their affection runs deep and true.

And among that hundred or so, there is, thanks to our crummy health care system, there are a few who would rightly consider this their last year on earth. There is a forest of blights you can choose from for them to have; use your imagination. And, as they look forward to their last months in Ontario, weakening as the winter strengthens, perhaps they begin to think of others things they could do in their final months of vigor, before they die in Ontario's third world health care system.

Maybe that law dog money you are getting in, maybe you should call in prize money. In my culture, that is what we would do.

If I manage to scrape some money together that I can spare, I'll do my best to help feed the Kitty too. Good luck.

Oh, but don't link to my fb page, my local Congressman (John Hall NY-19) has a crusade against it, he sent out amass email lying about us as dangerous radical bigoted extremists or some such nonsense. I don't want you to get sued any more than you already are!

Green Infidel  – (7:57 AM)  

I thought I'd heart it all - but suing for linking to an article, and for some comments?! Beyond ridiculous.

Here's wikipedia about Warman:

I’ve come to the conclusion that I can be most effective by using what I like to describe as a “maximum Disruption” approach … The “maximum disruption” part comes in because wherever I think it will be most helpful, or even if I just feel it will be the most fun, I strongly believe in hitting on as many of these fronts as possible either at the same time or one after the other. I say this because it keeps them off-balance and forces them to respond to things that focus their energies on defending themselves.

Never heard of him before, but seems like a nasty piece of work. Hope my $10 helps keep him at bay.
