A Special Editorial:
The "Christie Ban"
So they have banned two men on the eve of the new millennium,
just like in Martin Luther's time - half a millennium ago.
Not much has been learned in five hundred years. The Politically
Incorrect will be banned.
First it was Mr. Zundel. Then it was Mr. Christie. Who
will be third? Fourth? Fifth?
While it is raining headlines, articles, commentary and
radio interviews about this second "Christie Ban", courtesy of
the Canadian Parliament, a court ruling by Judge Chadwick has come down
like a sledgehammer:
Ernst Zundel has lost the first round in the ring.
The ruling is a sweeping one. Judge Chadwick has ruled
that the Canadian Parliament can ban anyone from the precincts of Parliament
they do not like - or whose ideas they don't like.
They can even ban someone who acts in a professional capacity
as legal counsel representing someone they don't like - or whose ideas
they don't like.
Why? Just because!
Because it would impair the House of Commons' "dignity"
to be exposed to controversial thought. They can all rise up in perfect
unison on their hind legs and click their heels and ban someone from any of the five buildings on Parliament Hill! Yessir! They can. I kid you not.
So much for Canadian "diversity" and Canadian
Freedom of Speech.
The judge who heard the opening salvo - Doug Christie
arguing persuasively and logically that political parties and members of
Parliament are accountable to the people and subject to the law and should
know better than to put themselves above the very laws they legislate -
has ruled in a 16-page document that Parliament is immune from being
And so are political parties.
There is no way to make this pretty - or soften what it
means. It's unctuous politics.
It means that at the tail end of the 20th Century, you
must accept that truth is no defense - because you're told that truth
is no defense, and there is no arguing back.
You cannot say and hope a judge will back you: "I
thought there was a Charter of Rights and Freedoms. I was promised
these rights! And these freedoms! I thought the document had meaning!"
Not all is lost, however. There are still things that
are allowed. You are allowed to do a poodle roll and lick the boots that
Think about what these decisions and judgments mean. Does
this medieval ban now also extend to other German leaders in the community
who may likewise wish to register their discontent about the Holocaust
as being ever more frequently used as a bludgeoning instrument and an extortion
tool against their people and their history? There's talk about these things.
German-Canadians are still a sizable community in Canada - the third largest
ethnic group, in fact!
Will this ban now also extend to the Ukrainians in Canada
who have locked horns already with the Jews in Canada about their own Ukrainian
And who resent it bitterly that Mr. Chretien lets Moshe
jet-set right next to him and all the way to Auschwitz for photo shoots
and such even as we speak - while they are traveling on camel back to the
What played to empty media benches for two long years
before the Human Rights Tribunal parasites who feed at the taxpayers' trough
is of concern to ordinary, voting people.
It matters to the taxpayers of Canada that ". . .
truth is no defense." It comes out of their pockets. And soon out
of their children's hides.
I tell you this: The Revisionist struggle is no longer
contained - or containable - within the "Revisionist ghetto."
This ". . . truth is no defense" has changed the playing field
a bit. Taxi drivers in the streets of Ottawa will tell you how Revisionism
spreads. It has utterly broken out of its former confinement - and entirely
new constituencies are now becoming involved in the historical debate.
As they should have been all along!
The "Zundel Ban" has catapulted the issue of
Freedom of Speech not only into Parliament, but now the "Christie
Ban" has brought it head to head with the professions - and individual
Members of Parliament as well as prominent parliamentary assistants are
saying things today you didn't hear them say as recently as yesterday.
I'll give you a for-instance:
According to yesterday's Southam News issue, in an article
written by Tim Naumetz, Independent MP John Nunziata - in olden days having
loudly condemned Ernst Zundel in Parliament after the 1985 Great Holocaust
trial - is quoted as having said that the ban against both Mr. Christie
and Mr. Zundel violates their freedom of speech guaranteed in the Charter
of Rights and Freedoms.
"It's totally and completely outrageous," exclaimed
Mr. Nunziata, also a lawyer. "It's political correctness gone mad.
They have to be reminded we live in a democracy."
Right. Was that not Mr. Zundel's claim - in 1985? In 1988?
Was that not what the highest court in Canada decided in the Zundel case
According to this article, Mr. Nunziata is said to have
fired off a letter to Mr. Parent, the Speaker of the House of Commons (
a position comparable to the post Newt Gingrich used to hold) who was chosen
as the fall guy to deliver the "missile" of the second, Christie
Ban. In an e-mail distributed to the offices of all MPs, Independent M.P.
Mr. Nunziata demanded to know the reasons for the ban against both Mr.
Zundel and Mr. Christie and asking Mr. Parent ". . . to explain the
threat they pose to Parliament."
"On what basis did you conclude that it was justifiable
to suspend constitutional rights?" Mr. Nunziata, a former Liberal,
asked Mr. Parent.
"Would you also indicate whether there are any precedents
for denying access to Parliament Hill based on a person's views."
Inquiring minds want to know.
And murky minds, it seems, are very loath to tell. As
far as we know, Mr. Parent has not yet replied to Mr. Nunziata.
On the other hand, government House leader Don Boudria,
one of the defendants in the Zundel law suit for having abused his powers,
is quoted as having said that Doug Christie was banned because he was merely
Mr. Zundel's "messenger" - and allowing Christie into the Charles
Lynch Press Gallery in Parliament would have been the same as allowing
Mr. Zundel into the buildings.
Do I feel another lawsuit coming on?
To have a civil rights lawyer of Doug Christie's stature,
reputation and professional track record be demeaned and vilified in print
as a mere Zundel "messenger" is not exactly without risk in our
The record shows that Don Boudria is wrong and should
not have tried to divine what Mr. Christie intended to disclose and announce
to the media in the scheduled and then aborted press conference. Doug Christie
is a consummate professional. He clearly stated his intentions in his press
release - sent out of his own office from far-away British Columbia - that
the topic of his press conference was the Human Rights Tribunal ruling
that truth was not a defense - and the inclusion of this concept in the
proposed new hate laws!
This ban pronounced by Parliament - first against Mr.
Zundel and then, grotesquely, against the attorney who has been representing
Mr. Zundel - has made the Revisionist struggle germane to many decent Canadian
people who choose not to live on their knees. They tell me so, in letter
after letter. That this development was flushed out in the course of prosecuting
Mr. Zundel - yet one more time for the same charges already settled many
times before in regular courts! - does not make it any less significant
or relevant to Canada.
Entirely the opposite!
Free speech will be a sad, quaint memory in Canada tomorrow
if Mr. Zundel can no longer ask today: "Did Six Million Really Die?"
The answer is at hand. Science has settled it. Light has
collided with the dark. The genie is out of the bottle. The charge of genocide
that has been leveled brutally and ruthlessly against the German people
for more than fifty years does not withstand the light of day - much less
It's over. Finished. Done.
We are now dealing with a Jewish cult and a new temporal
religion - a virtual Cult of Death spin-doctored cleverly by Hollywood
for all the Gentiles of this world willing to suspend thinking. Is that
what Gentiles want taught to their children in schools?
One well-known Revisionist put it succinctly:
"People today are taught to revere the Jewish Holocaust
story the way Hindu kids are taught to revere cows. If you are a kid growing
up in a Hindu hut, and one day it occurs to you that a cow may just be
a cow, you're in deep dung."
Canadian Parliament has shown - not once but twice! -
that Canada is very close to the revolting, bombastic mind control already
smelling up the air in Europe - where dissidents with independent minds
who will not genuflect before a proven lie will land up to five years in
Ernst Zundel is a pioneer of conscience. He told you it
was happening in Europe, and it would happen here. That it would cost you
He told you. And it has.
