Canadian Heroics

This is the opening statement of Ezra Levant - brought up before the Albertan Human Rights Commission thought police - defending his decision, and freedom, to republish the Danish Cartoons. A real hero for our time.

There are more excellent videos on his website, from the actual interrogation, including his refusal to accept that his intentions should be a relevant matter, description of how these cases diminish journalistic expression and do more to contribute to racial animosity than the cartoons and finally how he refuses to answer to the state, rather than civil society, for his views.

You can donate, at his site, to support him in his struggle. A worthy cause.

Canada: Freedom of Speech succumbing to Kangaroo Courts of the Human Rights Commission

Proceedings against Ezra Levant are nothing short of ridiculous, but let's consider the implications for moderate Muslims. This "investigation" will further divide Muslims and non-Muslims in Canada. It will give credence to radicals' claims that the West is at war with Islam. It will antagonize non-Muslims and moderate Muslims will be pushed towards radicalization. Regardless of the outcome, once again Islamists skillfully manipulated Dhimmi justice system and came out as clear winners. Thank you, Human Right Commission!
