P.S.A.'S · 17th June 2012
Arthur Topham was arrested after exposing the unwarranted RCMP arrest and government harassment of Jim Townsend.We emailed Art to discern more information after the RCMP wrote the Terrace Daily these words after we published the beatings of two native men arrested and the broken arm of one native underage female.
“The Terrace RCMP issues news releases to credible media outlets. The Terrace Daily does not fall in this category.”

Without a response, even to an attempted phone call, we searched online and found the following.
We have no doubt now that Canadians have just entered the new age of absolute suppression. When we go silent and/or get arrested (on any trumped up expose') please be aware, you are next unless you keep your mouth firmly shut! We will never shut up! And in our very educated opinion on this issue - there is virtually no way out. You, the reader, must stay entertained in front of your TV set, believing the mind putty thrown in your face. If you dare stand up against injustice, you you soon discover what true injustice is. It is happening now, right now, all around you. Don't expect Global, CBC, CTV or any other medium to advise you of this serious threat to your Country, your freedom.Art was next as this article predictedJim Townsend attempted to stand up against injustice. Read about it hereAnd our earlier assesment on the ability of the RCMP hereAnd: This is extremely serious.
This has nothing to do with hate laws or anti-zionism.
It has to do with exposing the RCMP, pure and simple. They just used this case he has been involved with for at least a decade, (law suit since 2008), to seize his stuff and shut him up.
I have no doubt I am next.
Subject: Arthur Topham Arrested on "Hate" Charges ARTHUR TOPHAM ARRESTED ON "HATE" CHARGES
Arthur Topham is an engaging and personable free thinker living in Quesnel, British Columbia. For years,he has been the editor of The Radical Press, first as a newsletter, and then as a blog. He started, as he'd admit, as someone on the left in the hippie scene in the 1970s. However, he was always passionately attached to freedom of speech. About a decade ago, he championed Ernst Zundel during the horrific assault by the Canadian Human Rights Commission on the Zundelsite and, later, during his persecution under the now utterly discredited "national security certificate" hearings, which resulted in the deportation of the dissident publisher, then a landed immigrant, to Germany and a five year prison term of doubting the Hollywood version of World War II. He earned the denunciations of some of his former leftist friends for his principled defence of free speech.
Over the years, Arthur became increasingly outspoken about the vile influence of the Zionist lobby in Canada. Not surprisingly, retaliation and an effort to gag Mr. Topham followed in short order. Organized Zionists have consistently sought to silence, jail or have fired anyone who questions their views. Dissent means human rights complaints, jail or unemployment. The list of the victims of the Zionists is long: eccentric John Ross Taylor, publisher Ernst Zundel, gentle school teacher Malcolm Ross, journalist and war hero Doug Collins, yours truly and many others.
Just this week, French comic Dieudonne M'bala M'bala was denied a Montreal concert venue after ferocious lobbying by the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs and, of course, loudly applauded by the League for Human Rights (that doesn't include free speech) of B'nai Brith.
In 2008, Harry Abrams, long-time Victoria operative for the League for Human Rights of B'nai Brith, launched a Sec. 13 (Internet censorship) complaint against Mr. Topham for some of his postings. The Canadian Association for Free Expression intervened on Mr. Topham's behalf. After Marc Lemire's historic victory, September 2, 2009, when Sec. 13 was declared unconstitutional by a Canadian Human Rights Tribunal, the Tribunal looking into the Topham complaint was adjourned sine die.
Sadly, that didn't mean the end of the judicial persecution of this brave man who has continued to champion victims of persecution. Earlier this week, Arthur was arrested and charged with "hate", under Sec. 319 of the Criminal Code, Canada's notorious "hate" law. Arthur's friend Hans Krampe reports: 'Arthur Topham, publisher of the Radical Press website, was arrested on May 16, 2012, at 11:30 am on the Barkerville Highway near Quesnel, B.C., put in handcuffs and taken to jail. Apparently, Arthur’s home had been staked out for quite some time by the RCMP. The warrant for his arrest read “commission of hate crimes”.
While in jail, Arthur’s house was raided and his computer equipment confiscated, including all his files. During the raid, Shasta, Arthur’s wife, wasn’t allowed into her home for 9 hours. Once the RCMP had taken what they wanted we wonder where the bugs are now hidden
and finished questioning Arthur, he was released at 11:00 pm.
Arthur is now back home again, but prohibited from sending ANY emails or expressing any opinions about the issues all too familiar to us. In other words, freedom of speech, which he so passionately fights for, has now been stymied by unconstitutional somersaults, technically and legally muzzling him, for the time being. Without compunction, might is right in Canada.
Arthur advises NOT to send him any emails, since those would only wind up at the RCMP instead. What Arthur would like to have send to him by snail mail etc.
is money, since he is always has been
chronically broke. It would help to defray some of the legal expenses he will now incur. Arthur has asked Doug Christie, prominent defence lawyer in the Ernst Zündel case, for legal assistance and Doug agreed to help him without hesitation. -- Hans Krampe"
In an interview this evening, Douglas Christie, the Battling Barrister, confirmed that he will be acting for the the freethinker in the Cariboo. We're still waiting for the specifics of the charges.
The persecution of Arthur Topham follows the model of the suppression of pro-free speech dissent practised by professional censors and the Zionist lobby and enabled by the laws of Canada. One route is to tie the dissident up in a lengthy and costly "human rights" hearing. This happened to Terry Tremaine. Next, charge them under the Criminal Code for "hate." The police raid you and seize (steal) your computer. [Don't count on ever getting it back. When this happened to lecturer Terry Tremaine, CAFE raised money and replaced it within 10 days.] The goal is to take away the resources that allow an Internet dissident to function. After some time, the dissident is charged. Then, a pliant judge imposes bail conditions that involve silencing the dissident. In Mr. Topham's case, he is not allowed to use e-mail.
Note that the victim is silenced even though the charges have not been heard. This is turning Anglo-Saxon justice on its head. We presume a person innocent until proven guilty.
Arthur is not well off. He has spent thousands of dollars on fighting the now shelved Canadian Human Rights complaint. People who might like to send messages of support or financial assistance to Arthur Topham can reach him at the following address:

Comment by ernie wilson on 7th October 2012
we are entering a 1984 reality or a type of existance straight from the pages nof the book "A Brave New World" where if you have truthful information not OK rubber stamped by the state... you are under arrest & if your opinion doesnt parrot the government propaganda agencies (CNN,FOX,MSNBC,CTV) then you arfe under arrest.
The article is right in regards to our personal liberties in that we all hang together for our freedom of speech or hang seperately, its too hard for the state to hang us all & the state knows that hoping we'll all stand idly by while our countrymen are hung for theirs.... like sheeple.
“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

Censorship of comments questioning anti-Zionism
Comment by David on 28th June 2012
Is disagreeing with the "Zionist conspiracy" reason enough for comments to be removed from the Terrace Daily?
Ed Note: Hate speech will not be tolerated on this site. Not hate for indians, jews, blacks, whites or any identifiable ethinic/religious group.
Numerous off topic comments removed
Comment by Terrace Daily on 21st June 2012
We have excercised some editorial censorship and removed numerous comments which were off topic, rude, character attacks and/or profane.
In the future address the subject of the post and engage in polite debate.
This explains why RCMP have been searching my website too
Comment by Laila Yuile on 19th June 2012
This explains why the RCMP has been on my site looking for anything referring to Merv Ritchie or Terrace Daily.
Comment by Jeff Rueger on 18th June 2012
So if all you wanted to do was to explain why you couldn't contact Mr Topham why post an entire article that rants on about some Zionist conspiracy. Your explanation seems a but disingenuous.
If you allow everyone to post anything then your website will quickly become a collection of garbage interspersed with a few gems of actual truth and wisdom - hardly an alternative to the mainstream press.
Because, unlike the other mainstream media organizations across Canada, we do not edit other peoples work and then leave their name attached, as if it was all their composition.
We also do not steal other peoples work and rewrite it as if it was ours. Too be sure we would love to visit with Art and/or speak to him personally. We have tried.
This was the source and it was left intact, as it was written. Liking his point of view or not is not our concern. We choose no to censor, we'' let the Gov't and the RCMP do that.
Postings by White Supremacists?
Comment by Jeff Rueger on 18th June 2012
So now posts material from White Supremacists? See the Wikipedia posting for Paul Fromm ... certainly not a past history of letting everyone have free speech ... and certainly not if you are from the "left wing" ...
And this article is posted as a P.S.A. which I assume stands for Public Service Announcement ... though perhaps it stands for Profoundly Stupid Article. Now I suppose I'll get slammed for doubting the veracity of postings on this site - and maybe even a supporter of the RCMP (as if one can't support both the RCMP and free speech).
The reference to Paul Fromm has nothing to do with the silencing of Art. He simple had the source of info on why we could not contact Art. This has nothing to do with White supremacists. It has everything to do with suppression of speech however, and not hate speech. Free speech to talk about issues uncomfortable to the ruling government or power structure of the day, (today).
This entire change is more like the days of Stalin, not Hitler. We used to have a free media, now we have a media financed by government and big industry, note the large full page ads in the newspapers and the long ads on commercial TV and radio. These pay for the service we can no longer consider independent media.
We also allow the BC conservatives to post their news releases, the NDP and the Liberals. We are truly unrestricted free speech. Don't accuse us of something completely unfounded.
Who wrote this?

“Why of course the people don’t want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece?
Naturally the common people don’t want war neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship.
Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. It is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.”
Written by Hermann Goering, Hitler’s number two man.
The above was his comments on how to generate public acceptance and enthusiasm for the mass slaughter that is war. And still today, it works the same in any country. The information expressed in Goering’s comments is not new. Consider the following.
The Drums of War
“Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervour, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind.
And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry.
Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so.
How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar.”
First they came for...

…By Reverend Martin Niemoeller…
In Germany, the Nazis first came for the communists, and
I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a communist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because
I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up
because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics, but I didn’t speak up
because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me, and by that time
there was no one left to speak for me.
[Note: Reverend Niemoeller, a German Lutheran pastor, was arrested by the
Gestapo and sent to Dachau in 1938. The allied forces freed him in 1945.]
