    I'm of two minds here.

    One, Ezra Levant is a pissant of epic proportions. Two, he's absolutely and totally correct. Of course, if he wasn't such a princess, he wouldn't bother to show up. He'd just send them a statement in the mail telling them to go **** Mohammed in the ass.

    wow, it amazes me how easily people forget that they have no special right or privilege which protects them from being offended. if i were him i'd bring a pisschrist and a hanky poo muhammed to the "trial"

    Don't get too self righteous (or, to quote Winston Wolf, "Let's not start sucking each other's dicks quite yet, gentlemen.")

    You're not a big fan of the ACLU, right? Whose side do you think they would be on if this was happening in America?

    true...true. i sure hope they'd be on his side considering some of the whacked out causes they take at times, taking his case would almost restore my faith in the organization.

    I think the ACLU would be divided on the issue. ED: On second thought, maybe not--they have represented white supremacists, no?

    "Londonistan" is a slightly chicken-little piece of journalism, but is a good account of would-be totalitarian theocraticism hiding itself in Western society under a mask of "multiculturalism." Recommend it for a read.

    for the most part, i double that. i say "most" b/c i don't understand why you categorize it as "slightly chicken-little". radical islam has made quite the inroads the past decade. would the best measure be if they started picking up seats in parliament?

    well, it's been half a decade since we last spoke of this, and not much has improved
