Because This Won’t Be On The Nightly News

On Friday, Ezra Levant was brought up for interrogation by the Canadian Human Rights Commission.

In February of 2006, the Western Standard magazine, of which I was publisher, reprinted the Danish cartoons of Mohammed. We were immediately hit with two “human rights complaints”. These are a strange species of lawsuit, inimicable to Western liberal traditions of rule of law and freedom of speech. A real court would have thrown these complaints out as baseless, but Alberta’s human rights commission has proceeded. Friday was the day of my interrogation. I videotaped it.You can see the hand-scrawled complaint against us here. You can see our written reply here.

The Alberta HRC has beclowned itself and ordered him to not to publish the videos available at the link. The MSM is joining in the beclowing by ignoring the story.

Glenn Greenwald who is otherwise noted for masterful sock-puppetry understands who they’re coming for next.

    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!

    Well, this is interesting. Since this blog is safe-guarded against “robo-posts”, we can assume that a real person (singular, regardless of the legions implicit in the name) submitted it.

    I thank you for that. I may take the time to examine your site.

    But I doubt it. Muslims, even Muslims in Canada and Alberta are not the victim here. Levant is. I see no indication of this understanding either in your post, or in Canada (a good place for information on Canadian cultural politics is Kathy Shaidle).

    You’re organization will be a useful and good thing the moment it stands up against the radicals.

    It is pretty clear that Free Speech and Mr. Levant are the primary victims of this idiocy. However secondary implications are often ignored, that’s why we point them out.
