TORONTO — An unabashed neo-Nazi who defied a court order to stop spreading hated over the Internet was arrested Thursday after being sentenced to nine months in jail for contempt, a punishment his lawyer called harsh.
In a scathing decision, a Federal Court judge ruled that Tomasz “Wanker” Winnicki, of London, Ontario, had shown blatant disdain for the justice system in continuing his hate campaign against Jews and people of colour.

Supporters of a white supremacist jailed for hate messages make veiled threats.
The sentencing of a London, [Ontario] white supremacist to nine months in jail has sparked a firestorm of Internet anger against Canada and veiled threats against the Ottawa lawyer who launched the case.
“Bring me back (Richard) Warman’s head on a platter . . . ,” said one angry white supremacist, adding, “This is not a death threat or incitement to violence, only a joke.”
But the same writer, who always ends his Internet postings with a slogan about the value of a .44 Magnum gun, also warned Warman: “You bring your (act) to my neighborhood and we’ll see who’s standing by the end of it. You just started a war, man.”
Londoner Tomasz “Wanker” Winnicki was sentenced Wednesday to nine months in jail for contempt of a federal court order banning him from spreading hate messages online.
The website forum he favoured was full of messages in support of him yesterday.
One writer suggested they band together to get rid of Warman, who has targeted about a dozen white supremacists and their online activity.
“Let us get together and put as much information about this Warman . . . pictures, newspaper clippings, memberships . . . and make it available on the Web for the least stable among us to use as they see fit.”
He’s not Der Führer, he’s just a very naughty boy.
In other news, it appears that anti-anarchist boneheads may have to blow a little harder before their silly ideas take root in ‘small-town America’. Well, Oregon, Illinois anyway…
Anti Illegal Immigration Rally
July 16, 2006
The Aryan Anarchist Skins aren’t your traditional white supremacist group.
“We accept homosexuals, bisexuals, lesbians and that’s why we didn’t get the turnout on our side,” says Debra Brownstein of the Aryan Anarchist Skins.
Only four people stood on the Skins’ side of the orange fence.
“On our website we’ve had two, maybe three hundred people say they were coming,” says [not-too-bright] Sergeant Officer Lisa Schultz.
Hundreds of people did show up, but they were banded together to protest the Skins’ rally.
…Maintaining order at today’s rally forced the Ogle County Sheriff’s Department to call in backup. It cost around $60,000 to bring in extra personnel and set up barriers around the courthouse.
Those who attended the rally had to go through metal detectors into a fenced off area. Over 100 officers from as far away as Polo were present to keep the protestors and the Aryans away from one another. Police say the event went as planned.
Anarchist Group Rallies in Small Town

A group of white supremacists called the Aryan Nations held a demonstration to protest illegal immigration in the U.S. They say they chose Oregon, Illinois because of the number of immigrants in Ogle County. Only four activists showed up and dozens of people took a stance against their rally.
Like a scene out of an old western, the two sides squared off in the middle of town. Michael Wharfield joined the local community members in protesting the anarchists. He said, “We just came to show that this is unacceptable in our community.”
…The yelling disrupted any sort of debate and the Aryan Nations members who hoped to bring a message to the small town walked away with an earful themselves after a mere hour of cross-fire chants and angry shouts.
