Toronto man convicted of advocating genocide

February 25. From Betsy Powell at the Toronto Star:

A Toronto man who sent emails to public figures and media outlets and used Twitter to espouse his “hateful beliefs” has been found guilty of the rare Criminal Code charge of advocating genocide against Jewish people and homosexuals.

Rupen Balaram-Sivaram showed no emotion Monday as he listened to Superior Court Justice Michael Brown read his reasons for convicting the former paralegal on all 10 counts in the indictment, including promoting hatred, criminal harassment, uttering death threats and impersonation. More.

Reality check: If you’ve been following the news in the States these days, the “rare” part has got to be advocating the deaths of Jews and gays in the same genocide plan. Mostly these days they hear from progressives who hate Jews.
