Quotational Therapy: Part 143 -- Ezra Levant.

"... a violation of my ancient and inalienable freedoms."-

Canada has officially jumped the shark. It needs to scrap its entire government and start over, but this time it needs to include-- among other things-- a constitutional protection for speech.

Why?

The story of Ezra Levant, the Western Standard, and the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal is frightening. To sum up what's going on, basically a guy in Canada has been hauled before a "hate speech" tribunal for publishing some political cartoons with images of Islam's prophet Mohammed ('toons reposted here). You see, in Canada, there is no freedom of the press or freedom of speech-- no First Amendment, in other words. The result is a chilling example of state-sanctioned tyranny that is almost hard to fathom in such an advanced nation that's so similar to the United States of America.

To see Ezra Levant testify before the soulless, bureaucratic tribunal reminds one of the Vogons in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy ("Not evil, but bad tempered, bureaucratic, officious and callous."). To see the testimony and questioning, go to his website, scroll down, and work your way back up.

In the meantime, here's Ezra Levant's stirring opening statement:

A troubling thought: On many college campuses in America, ironically enough, we have similar speech codes.

The right quote can be therapeutic, so tune in to WILLisms.com for quotational therapy on most Mondays and Fridays.

Canadians being infiltrated with the Radical Muslim terrorist tactics at the tax payers expense is much like what is happening in the USA. This is ridiculous and we all need to put a STOP to it ASAP!

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!

Muslims Against Sharia are proud to be the first Muslim group to publicly support Ezra Levant and denounce HRC inquisition
