Yeeeeehaw-this is most excellent!
Read the latest from Mark Steyn, in the National Post about Ezra Levant's libel trial.
Witty, funny and accurate.
Plus-added bonus shout out within to Kathy Shaidle! NICE!
"These days, calling someone totally racist is totally gay. These are the playground insults of the diversity sandbox. I hasten to add, before he reaches for m’learned friends, that I’m not implying Mr. Awan is a practicing homosexual: In 2005, he testified to the House of Commons against same sex marriage. For all I know, some gay guys would call him “homophobic.” Again, big deal. "
"As the comedienne Sarah Silverman likes to say, “I mean ‘gay’ like ‘retarded.’ ” I hasten to add, before he amends his complaint, that I’m not implying Mr. Awan is mentally ill. And yes, Sarah Silverman is a sinister Jewess, but the point is that suing over the back-and-forth of public discourse turns the entire citizenry into an enfeebled child: To litigate every offense is to give a not especially distinguished judiciary the power to micro-regulate social relations."
So, basically, this is the GAYEST lawsuit ever, ever, EVAH EVAH EVAH!!!!!
My retarded child has a better sense of humour than Mr. Awan and Professor Mann. And these exquisitely sensitive pricks are really more retarded than my son. Seriously, only effeminate beta p&ssies run and sue people that insult them. That is soooooo gay.
"In free societies, the appropriate restraint is social; if you go around shrieking insults hither and yon, your friends may indeed decide to shun you — and that is as it should be. But it is ridiculous for what in Canada is an already sclerotic court system to adjudicate the rougher asides of vigorous debate on matters of public policy, whether climate change or speech censorship. "
"If you’re going to be a partisan warrior in the public arena you need, as the Toronto blogger Kathy Shaidle likes to put it, “insensitivity training.” [Ed. note: SIGN ME UP-new business venture, anyone???].
"Miss Shaidle also argues that the matter of honour was better handled before the libel laws replaced dueling. When a fake Nobel laureate and a frontman for a terrorism-sympathizer are suing for their “reputation,” I’m inclined to agree. If Dr. Mann’s up for it, how about hockey sticks at dawn?"
(OMG! I would pay to see that!! Moderately arousing!!)
