Angry editor makes his Motoons case

Watch Ezra Levant, editor of the Canadian Western Standard, put up a robust defence of his right to publish the Motoons.

He was scandalously called to account for himself by the Alberta Human Rights Commission. See him tell them off:

More video footage available at his website and on YouTube.
Here’s a transcript from his opening statement:

For a government bureaucrat to call any publisher or anyone else to an interrogation to be quizzed about his political or religious expression is a violation of 800 years of common law, a Universal Declaration of Rights, a Bill of Rights and a Charter of Rights. This commission is applying Saudi values, not Canadian values. It is also deeply procedurally one-sided and unjust. The complainant – in this case, a radical Muslim imam, who was trained at an officially anti-Semitic university in Saudi Arabia, and who has called for sharia law to govern Canada – doesn’t have to pay a penny; Alberta taxpayers pay for the prosecution of the complaint against me. The victims of the complaints, like the Western Standard, have to pay for their own lawyers from their own pockets. Even if we win, we lose – the process has become the punishment.

    Way to go! You have to love the Canucks. Like it or not, they did what the American RIAA & MPAA failed to do: permanently shutting down The Geen Demon torrent website. If they did the same to these arseholes, that would be a victory for us all.

    I would like to know where are the Prime Minister, other ministers, and members of Parliament when these violations of Canadian rights are being infringed? Why have we electeed these people if theydo not and cannot protect the rights of Canadians — rights that they themselves have established by law?
