Bill Noble Sentenced To Four Months Imprisonment In Canada For Exercising Free Speech On The Internet; Canadian Jews Celebrate

A Canadian court handed down a rare conviction to a "white supremacist" for posting hate material on the Internet, police here said on Tuesday February 5th, 2008. Full story published by, the Edmonton Sun, the Prince George (BC) Citizen, on Reuters Canada, and on Canada NewsWire, which appears to be a Jewish supremacist propaganda website.

A judge ruled that Keith Francis William (Bill) Noble, 31, did "willfully promote hatred against identifiable groups, namely Jews, Blacks, homosexual or gay persons, non-whites and persons of mixed race or ethnic origin," according to a police statement. Noble was sentenced to four months in jail, plus restrictions on his use of computers for three years, said the police statement.

According to the White Canada blog, on February 19th, 2005, Noble had his Fort St. John, BC apartment raided by Canadian authorities. The police had a warrant to search and seize his computer equipment for evidence pertaining to violations of Section 319 of the Criminal Code of Canada (Public Incitement of Hatred) through his website “”. Shortly after the raid, Mr. Noble was placed under arrest. Under Section 319 a person can be imprisoned for up to two years for the vaguely defined crime of “communicating statements in a public place with intent to incite hatred against an identifiable group in such a way that there will likely be a breach of the peace.”

Additional background information can be found on the NSP Canada blog.

Monday's conviction by the British Columbia Supreme Court in western Canada, following a two-week trial last fall, is unusual, Sergeant Sean McGowan told AFP. "The conviction rate for Internet-related crimes is very low", said McGowan. McGowan then went on to explain that "this is the second conviction of an individual for hate propaganda in British Columbia, and there have been only four or five cases in all of Canada where an individual has been prosecuted and convicted for hate over the Internet".

Police were initially tipped off about Noble's posting by the Friends of the Simon Wiesenthal Center For Holocaust Studies, an international human rights organization. Noble posted quite a bit on a lot of white supremacist websites. Police claim that the content of the website and the content of what he posted were offensive enough to meet a high standard. Noble "was known to the police, the authorities, and to our organization," said David Eisenstadt, a spokesman for the Wiesenthal organization.

"We're pleased this (conviction) has happened, not because we condone censorship but because there's a lot of abuse on the Internet," Eisenstadt told AFP. "There are no boundaries on the Internet."

Commentary: Notice how the Canadian Jewish supremacists immediate celebrate the verdict. Also notice how they deliberately lie, claiming that they don't condone censorship. Since the conviction of Bill Noble is likely to have a chilling effect upon free speech and deter people from speaking their minds, it does constitute censorship, because of the censorious effects. Jewish supremacist groups have been behind the effort to quash free speech in Canada for nearly 40 years; it was the Canadian Jewish Congress which spearheaded the effort to start the Canadian Human Rights Commission (CHRC) and its infamous tribunals in 1977. Wikipedia account of the CHRC HERE. Other abuses of the CHRC exposed on the CHRC blog.

While the Friends of the Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust Studies bills itself as an "international human rights organization", in 1999, the website accused the Center of using doctored photos to "prove" that the concentration camps were solely for the purpose of exterminating Jews. The Holocaust has long since been exposed as the most exaggerated event of the 20th century.

Censorship and repression have been hallmarks of the Center's outreach. In October 2007, the Simon Wiesenthal Center pressured the New York Catholic Archdiocese to distance itself from Croatian rock star Marko Perkovic, also known as “Thompson,” because they believed his songs glorified "ethnic cleansing", and whose followers were photographed giving the Ustashe salute. Center officials also pressured Croatian diplomats repudiate the singer and to ensure that institutions connected to the government do not give Perkovic any support. In Toronto, the Center successfully pressured the owners of the hall where a Perkovic concert was scheduled to take place to cancel after protests by the Friends of the Simon Wiesenthal Center and others. In addition, authorities in Vancouver indicated that they intended to send members of their Hate Crimes Unit to monitor the show.

Bill Noble posted on our race debate website (Mootstormfront) for a while, indeed until not long before his imprisonment, using the username Abbadon.

He was a humorous and apparently spiritual guy who seemed popular even with people who didn't agree with him.

I only had a very brief look at his website but if it's anything like what he posted on our site he certainly shouldn't have been imprisoned, his computer impounded etc.

It's wrong IMO that he's in jail simply for expressing his views on a website.

As long as he didn't advocate violence (and I see no reason to believe he did), he should be freed asap and his computer rights restored.
