Freedom of Speech

Glenn Greenwald recently wrote of that hag Ann Coulter’s visit to Ontario Canada to speak at the University of Ottawa, and the reminder by that university’s Vice Provost to watch her words:

“You will realize that Canadian law puts reasonable limits on the freedom of expression. For example, promoting hatred against any identifiable group would not only be considered inappropriate, but could in fact lead to criminal charges.”

This is a law written for and about the brutal bigotry and social destruction of Zionism masquerading as innocent, ever-persecuted Jews. Many will recall the arrest and deportation to Germany of Canadian citizen Ernst Zundel for “inciting hatred against Jews and systematically denying the Nazi genocide against the Jews — in 14 specific instances — on his Web site and in a newsletter“. This crime of asking questions landed the man five years in prison.

The hazard of Canadian and German ‘hate speech’ is in the interpretation. Unless you are willing to produce a knife dripping with fresh blood and point to the Arab whose back you plunged it in, then you’re anti-semitic.

Was every German a Nazi? Certainly not the German Jews that Hitler murdered. So how can Canadian Jews tolerate this law which says “if Jew then Zionist” and anyone who stands up for equality under the law in Israel is a hate crime against the Jews? The reality is that most don’t.

Until the day that Israel celebrates their own version of Martin Luther King Day, there will not be peace in that country. Until the mayor of Jerusalem is criticized for building “low income” instead of “Jewish only” housing, there will be terrorism. And laws like this one – which is at least explicitly stated and transparent unlike the implicit yet much more consequential social laws in the US, serve only to obfuscate, prolong and exacerbate the crisis in this troubled region.

Love the Jew – hate the Zionism. Deplore the connection.
