Connie's thread starter article here, penned by Michelle McQuigge
in the Winnipeg Free Press, reflects a heightened understanding of the chronology of commentaries which led Baglow to sue Smith and FreeDominion for 'cyber-libel', essentially for inferring that Baglow's August 10, 2010 article 'The Gitmo Kanga-ruse
(a tonguebath of Omar Khadr), was 'treasonous' commentary.
Smith made the claim on Baglow's own 'Dawg's Blawg' blogsite, where the 'offending' comment remains displayed.
public declarations of support for Al Qaeda and the Taliban amount to treason
Smith then mounted a thread on FreeDominion
mocking John Baglow for his 'Dawg's Blawg' 'Off with his head'
article, which contained the claim:
King Stephen I enjoys, however, the fervent support of yokels with pitchforks
Baglow likely forgot to remember Daniel Pearl
when he chose the Talibanesque title for that commentary.
It's odd that the Appeal court agreed that the John Baglow suit against Roger Smith and FreeDominion deserved Court hearing, citing the need to examine and cross-examine witnesses and 'expert evidence' to help 'chrystallize' law around 'cyber-defamation'.
A little patience on the Court's part would have the benefit of hearing the Richard Warman defamation suit
against the Fourniers of FreeDominion and 8 'John Does'
, which include 'Peter O'Donnell', aka Mr. Roger Smith
Both Richard Warman
and John Baglow
share close connection with the'Anti-Racist Canada'
blogsite, alongside Warren Kinsella
, who has also sued FreeDominion for defamation, and BigCityLib aka Michael J. Murphy
The original 'Gang of Four' - also in court...Disclaimer: My own experience in exchanging online views with Mr. Baglow - at Jay Currie's former blogsite - included him claiming I was a 'Nazi', so I have good reason to hold a diminished regard for his online opinions.
