The Cartoonist's Plot
Human Rights in Canada, attacked and defended. It is a link to videos showing a publisher being interrogated by the Canadian Human Rights Commission for publishing the "Mohammed Cartoons". They said inquisitions couldn't happen in North American. Certainly not in the 21st century. But they have. Whether or not Ezra Levant is declared "innocent" or "guilty" by the Canadian Human Rights Commission of publishing the "Mohammed Cartoons" is beside the point. What is at issue is whether or not a Canadian government agency has the competence to punish someone for what in saner times would be considered a routine exercise in free speech. It is the legitimacy of the Canadian Human Rights Commission that is on trial here. They themselves are in the dock and they have put themselves there.
The really insidious thing about inquisitions, such as the one undertaken by the Human Rights Commission, is the secretly shameful gratitude those that are spared feel that it is being done others. Not to us; we are safe. But somewhere in the subconscious we know that've only postponed the trial, not overcome it. But what of it? That problem can be left for tomorrow. Today it's enough to be glad this is happening to someone else.
