A Bad Day For Terry: Tremaine "Looses" Appeal

UPDATE 1: We should have mentioned the spelling error in the title of our article (and we are sadly prone to such errors) was this time intentional. Sort of an inside joke that might have been a little too inside:




Sometimes it's fun to poke the bear, but on to our post on Tremaine.

Last we heard Terry Tremaine was appealing his contempt of court conviction.

Today, he learned that he was going straight to jail.

Do not pass go.

Do not collect $200.00

Ex-university teacher who posted racist messages headed for jail

A Regina man convicted of contempt of court in connection with posting racist messages online has lost his latest appeal. 

Terry Tremaine, a former University of Saskatchewan math instructor, had his appeal dismissed Tuesday by the Federal Court of Appeal. 

Tremaine's lawyer, Andrew Hitchcock, told CBC News that Tremaine will turn himself in to authorities and will begin serving his 30-day jail sentence. 

Hitchcock said a decision whether or not to try to appeal to the Supreme Court hasn't been made yet.

Tremaine has been in and out of courtrooms for years after posting online messages that disparaged Jews, blacks and other minorities. 

The Canadian Human Rights Tribunal ordered him to stop, and when he refused, he was charged with contempt. 

He was convicted and sentenced in 2012 to serve a minimum of 30 days in jail, with another six months added if he violated conditions set by the judge.

We guess Paulie might get to this story eventually. He can bitterly complain about the, "persecution" of "White Nationalists" then ask for donations to continue the fight to support these financially destitute victims of the tyrannical legal system.

That assumes that any donated monies actually reach the intended recipient through Paulie.


UPDATE 2: Looks like Paulie actually commented on this case much sooner than the usual week to 10 days it takes him to waddle over to his computer to capitalize on the plight of his suckers.... er.... we mean ideological allies:

Hopefully one day I will join these legal battles with some insights as I am now a student at Law.

I'd really like to know what Paul Fromm does with the money collected. To all the White Nationalists' out there that he has solicited donations for, did you ever receive any funds? It's alright, you don't have to answer here, just talk amongst yourselves. I know that I never saw any money, and he damn sure used my name often enough.
