Being Legally Bullied? Innocent? Join Ezra’s Crew Now!


~ JEW-COOTIES Down East! “I was in transit for most of the day, briefly stopping in Ottawa, arriving in St. John’s, Newfoundland a few hours ago” …. (ezralevant)

~ EZRA TALKS BACK— Warren Kinsella threatens me with a lawsuit; implies Mohamed Elmasry not anti-Semitic. “Kinsella is threatening to sue me over those words, and he warns me not to even mention his threatening letter on my blog. Well, you can read that letter here in its entirety.” …. (

~ EZRA LEVANT: “More thoughts on politically-sanctioned kidnapping” …. (

~ KINSELLA VS. LEVANT: “Here we go again. On a personal level, of course, I hope Levant successfully fends off any legal action from Kinsella. But does the case have any merit?” …. (dp)

~ SHAIDLE: “I was worried about how Ezra’s supporters would react… to news that he’s being sued again” …. (

~ TIME IMMORTAL: “One cannot help but get the feeling that Ezra is in the middle of a targeted, concerted effort to destroy him — financially, if in no other way. And one cannot help but get the sense that there is a certain inter-connectedness to the various legal filings against him — one notes that in the official notice of suit received by Mr. Levant, the barristers in question identify themselves as “Solicitors for Richard Warman.” …. (

~ SCARAMOUCHE— “J’accuse: An open letter to Bernie Farber, head of the Canadian Jewish Congress, with apologies to M. Emile Zola for swiping the first line of his famous missive” …. (scaramouche)

~ NOT THAT SURPRISING: “Ezra Levant gets some emails of support from people affiliated directly with Warren “I’ll sue anybody!” Kinsella” …. (girlontheright)

~ DOGPILE! “The “Rights” crowd circles its wagons, piles on Levant: Ezra Levant’s enemies–i.e. the enemies of free expression–continue their efforts to silence/punish him. Ezra reports that A CJC associate may be getting set to SLAPP him with another lawsuit. All told, that would make four–count ’em–four suits against Ezra. Cruel but not so unusual punishment for the defiant here in Soviet Kanuckistan” …. (scaramouche)

~ ACTION DINO on the frivolous law ‘threat’ directed at Ezra …. (MaD)

~ :LYING JACKAL throws nerf ball at Levant …. (jaycurrie)

“For rights to make sense they must be enforceable by the state without being granted by the state. You are not given the right to speak or practice religion or to publish a newspaper or magazine; rather you already have that right prior to the creation of the state and the state helps protect the exercise of your rights — unless it is the one violating them (which it usually is). The logic of this understanding of rights is that there is no right to free health care or schooling. You have the right to health care or education, but not the right to demand that others supply it for you.”

~ DEBORAH GYAPONG: CHRC dismisses complaint against Catholic Insight …. (

~ SOME GUY I’ve never met calls me a monkey, a scumbag, and a lunatic, and falsely claims I put pictures on FreeMarkSteyn which were actually on my new Morgentaler blog UnAborted. He attributes the pictures to me, even though even a cursory perusal of the actual links would have indicated otherwise. This individual has advised the Liberal Party of Canada in the past, and is currently making loud lawsuit-noises at Ezra Levant. Comments ensue here (scroll down), and mine here. I’ve since removed the picture, to avoid needless offence. What a very remarkable man, this Mr. Kinsella! Thanks to David for the hat-tip. Arbitrary abuse from lefties? W00t! I’ve arrived! ….

And don’t even mention those ne’er do well urchins– and bourgeois parents in the proletariat sector– who commit the doubleplus ungood crimethink of food waste! …. (Various)

~ HOMOPHOBIA! “The U. S. Senate is near to passing a massive $50-billion Emergency Plan for HIV/ AIDS Relief–a bill whose priorities are based on myth, just like virtually all anti-AIDS efforts worldwide. The world’s top AIDS bureaucrat recently admitted the truth: “It is very unlikely that there will be a heterosexual epidemic” outside Africa, Kevin de Cock, director of the World Health Organization, told London’s Independent newspaper. His bosses at the United Nations issued an official denial– but couldn’t truly challenge his science” …. (nationalpost)

“Liberal Muslims are not only silenced by literalist Muslims, but also by those non-Muslims who have developed the hollow pattern of being ‘fair’ and ‘tolerant’ to every religion. The existence of ‘political fairness’ among large circles of non-Muslim activists is actually a much bigger obstacle than extremist Muslims because those non-Muslim activists dominate the media outlets across the world and often ignore genuinely liberal Muslim voices.”

~ NON-MUSLIMS? Worse than animals!.. yes, even than cute puppies. “Abul Kasem introduces the subject of non-Muslims in Islam via an interview for FrontPage Magazine. No use taking this material to any of Canada’s “human rights” commissions; some forms of hate speech are protected in Canada. And pointing out this fact constitutes blasphemy so far as the “human rights” mafia – and Canadian law – are concerned” …. (ghostofaflea)
