Steynian 213

~ EZRA, THE P.O.S. Jew! .. As we all know, Ezra is evil, Jewish, and sometimes loudly opinionated (and a member of that world-wide Zionist thingy). Doesn’t matter: at the Moment this blog is effectively ‘Free Ezra Levant’, because he’s our Canadian point-man, currently under sustained legal barrages from the enemies of democracy, free speech, and accountability for the HRCs and related minions. He’s a real Canadian hero, but heroes are human. Mark Steyn needed a hiatus to get away from the war for a bit; Ezra is a father to a new daughter, a husband, a provider, a son to older parents. So you of faith, please pray for him; you of good will, send some encouraging words his way, and in the comments and places you can online. All of us must generously donate to Ezra and the Freedom-6, plus Mark– because they are fighting the battle with us and for us, using their particular gifts and opportunities for the greater good. ~

~ DANGED BLOGGERS. “Surely,” thought the HRCoids, “the bloggers will wind down and cool off by Summer.” Nope. By Fall? Nope. What they’re failing to realize is that not only lefty bureaucrats and ideologues are real Canadians. And unlike the foul-mouthed ad hominem snarly lefty commenters, we FreeSpeecher bloggers are motivated by thoughts, convictions, articulated principles which are the ground and source of our passion. We’re fighting for ourselves, for what’s been handed on to us, and for those who come after us.. heck, we’re even fighting for you HRCers, to be freed from your fascistic utopianism. We fight because now is the time– whatever our various failings and foolishnesses– and we’re the ones who happen to be on deck in this particular storm. Hang in there: we’re slowly and surely changing things for the better. Every little bit of push-back makes a huge difference, and the longer we talk, the more people tune in. ~

~ INSTAPUNDIT— MORE ON CANADA’S “HUMAN RIGHTS” KANGAROO COURTS: When all else fails, change the subject. “I think the battle for freedom of speech is going pretty well, even though it’s summertime. Human rights commissions are being ridiculed on an almost daily basis in the media; their coalition is starting to fracture under the stress, as evidenced by the defection of the B’nai Brith; and the ‘lawfare’ being waged against me and other critics of the HRCs hasn’t worked, largely because of the broad public support expressed through the Internet (thank you, again).” ….

~ THE CHINA SYNDROME: “The HRC system was established back in the days when one could silence a White Power creep by, say, shutting down his anti-Semitic phone message; one could then pat oneself on the back for a job well done (because, the thinking went, if you didn’t extinguish his brushfire of hate, who knows, it might well turn into a raging blaze). These days, however, the existence of the Internet makes putting out such brushfires a far trickier—one could even say an impossible—proposition, as the censors in China are discovering to their dismay” ….

Saith Binks: a little martial-arts or self-defense training goes a long way. Unless the person involved is a trained knife-fighter, there’s lots that can be done to disarm them. As with the Ecole polytechnique shootings, not knowing a few basics means death for no good reason. Don’t leave it up to somebody else, or the police, or the government to fix all problems, or to save a life. Someday, it might all depend on you: are you ready? Self-defense? First-aid? basic survival? If not, why not? If not now, when? …. (am770chqr.com, nationalpost)

Jihad

“And so it goes on. In seemingly every area of cultural contact, however open and welcoming, Muslims choose to distance themselves from the generality on the basis of ‘their religion’. Unless they themselves are prepared to question the arcane prejudices that lie at the root of ‘their religion’ they will continue to feel like aliens in normal society by their own choice.”

Their challenge is really to any American who dares to speak the truth about Jihad, Islamism, and Islamic supremacism. Groups such as ISNA and MPAC may or may not silence any one individual. But we must make it clear to Islamic supremacists everywhere that they will never silence all of us who will defy the ideology of supremacism that is inimical to our freedoms, our values of equality and liberty, and our nation” ….
