Blazing Cat Fur Is Being Sued – For Linking To Mark Steyn’s Website
The assault on Canadian bloggers continues. Arnie at BCF is being sued, by who else – Richard Warman – for $500,000 for, among other things, linking to Mark Steyn’s website.
Here is what Kathy from Five Feet of Fury had to say:
As many of you know, I — along with Ezra Levant and others — are already being sued by former Canadian “Human Rights” Commission employee Richard Warman.
Now my husband Arnie — a.k.a. the blogger BlazingCatFur – is also being sued by Warman, also for criticizing his activities at the CHRC.
Warman is suing for $500,000.
Arnie has already spent $10,000 in legal fees. We’ve put off asking for help for more than a year, but we now are coming to you for assistance.
I’m lucky: my readers have so far paid all my legal fees through their generous donations, which were made when the economy was much healthier.
We know that times are worse than hard for most of us. But all we can do is ask you to read the details of this SLAPP suit and consider helping us out in some tiny way.
These suits are designed to shut down conservative bloggers, and prevent public discussion of the censorship, bullying and bureaucratic abuses being carried out in your name, with your tax dollars.
This nonsense has to stop. This is an assault on ALL our rights.
Mitchieville will be contributing to Arnie’s defense fund. I know things are tight all around right now, but I’m sure if you check your couch, a few pairs of jeans, or even if you have to break your kids piggy bank, you can come up with a few dollars to help Arnie out.
