Steyn Showtrial Day 3.0

STEYN ON SHOW TRIAL DAY THREE
JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMSOCKDo Faisal and Khurrum even know what their own case is about? Plus: Ezra Levant looks back on a day when even the defence witness turned out to be quite a Steyn fan. And Andrew Coyne prepares to live-blog another slab of wall-to-wall Steyn joke-analysis from expert witnesses beginning at 9.30am Pacific direct from the “politically correct goat rodeo“.

~ Here’s a novel take: “Khurrum is just an ordinary Canadian guy“. Also of note: “The need for limiting interpretation” (isn’t that what Islam and Canada have in common?) Plus: “McCarthyism comes to Canada“; and more “understanding” = fewer freedoms;

~ Here’s how the mainstream boys are reporting it: A bland piece in The Globe & Mail that makes Khurrum Awan sound the soul of reasonableness, and, from The National Post, “Maclean’s hearing missing relevance“. A trudge through the expert testimony in the news pages of the Vancouver Province, but the paper’s editorialists warn of “A freedom we can’t surrender” (sorry, but we already have), and a reader warns that “the free speech of every Canadian is on trial“. The Vancouver Sun warns that the BCHRT is “murdering its own reputation” by taking on “the right-wing nit”; in The Ottawa Citizen David Warren considers it a “tragedy for Canada’s Muslims“; and, from a National Post reader, “a mockery of justice“. Plus the view from The Amherst Daily News, Lifesite, and CHQR’s Rob Breakenridge.

~ Meanwhile, Mark is still Number One with Canadian political readers, and America Alone, his US bestseller and Canadian hate crime, is just released in paperback and back in the Top Ten. But don’t wait for the thought police to seize it from the bookshelves: you can order your personally autographed copy exclusively from the Steyn Store … (SteynOnline
