Mark Steyn: "Free Speech Shouldn't Need "Defending". It's The Shut-Uppers Who Should Be On The Defensive" (UPDATED!)

Three years on, because of a 270 word blog post, and still no "justice".

This "case"is an utter disgrace and perverse happening in America, the alleged land of the free.

Steyn: Just the Facts, Mann. 


You just know it's going to be a great day when you start it off being cited by Mark Steyn.




"I said some time last year that, when you're in a legal battle, it always helps to have something bigger at stake. When the Canadian Islamic Congress attempted to use the "human rights" commissions to impose a de facto lifetime publication ban on me in my own country, the larger issue became freedom of speech. And, in a narrow sense, we won - in that the Canadian Parliament eventually repealed the law under which the Islamic enforcers brought their suit."

"But, as Laura Rosen Cohen says today, "I'm so bored of 'defending' free speech." I agree. Free speech shouldn't need "defending". It's the shut-uppers who should be on the defensive, who should be made to explain why only their side of the argument can be heard."

Shut uppers, beware: We're onto you and we will win.
