~ FRIENDLY-FIRE just isn’t. When I read online some speculation about why Ezra Levant was taking a month off, I chatted with the Ez today to find out what might be up. Hot Exclusive NewsFlash: this politically active Conservative lawyer and insider is volunteering for his favourite political party (The Conservatives) during a Federal Election, speaking on TV, radio, and via the print media. Hello? He’s not pimping for the HRC; or taking FreeSpeech heat off the Feds; or proving it was all a fake, now that it counts.
Let’s recap, shall we? Lawyer/ politician starts magazine, gets HRC complaint, spends $100k, magazine dies; HRC interrogation goes viral on YouTube; said lawyer advises people pro bono (for free) on their Human Rights or related free speech lawsuits, accumulates more harassment & Human Rights suits, rallies support across the country with fellow bloggers and politicians and journalists, becomes a first-time father, keeps his sanity & good humour… and becomes Canadian blog-star while doing all of the above.
None of us is perfect, or sinless, or lovable to all people. Whatever, and get over it. When a talented person volunteers, sacrifices, and works hard on behalf of individuals, a cause, and his country, he deserves trust, thanks, and the benefit of the doubt, untill and unless proven otherwise, and no ifs, ands, or buts.
Childish, classless, and embarrassing theories only hurt the cause, and confirm the caricature by the Left of the Right as nothing more than angry-minded, mean-spirited, and conspiracy-kooked.
Ezra will be back, and possibly as an insider to a majority Conservative government able to deal with the HRCs, Section 13, and all the rest. If they don’t, then shame on them; but when Ezra gets back, will we have been keeping the battle going, or setting fire to our own defenses?
We’ve all seen the slavering orc-frenzy from the American Left surrounding the announcement of Sarah Palin as VP Candidate for the Republicans. Bad enough, but when it’s a few on your own side circling the firing squad to take pot-shots, then said suspicious sorts need to spine-up, pipe down, and apologize for the stupid.

But either way the question obviously has a political and legal component, and indeed America’s political tradition offers one answer to the question, written in the Declaration of Independence. We can disagree with the answer, but to do so we must take up the appropriate question: not when does life begin, but whether we are all created equal. Do all human beings share in some minimal equal humanity that entitles us to some minimal equal protections, like the protection from intentional killing, regardless of our age, our size, our capacities, abilities, and circumstances?” ….

The typical boy is a year and a half behind the typical girl in reading and writing; he is less committed to school and less likely to go to college. In 1997 college full-time enrollments were 45 percent male and 55 percent female. The Department of Education predicts that the proportion of boys in college classes will continue to shrink” ….

Sibley rappelle les événements qui, à travers l’histoire, ont permis à la civilisation occidentale de se sauver du péril mortel des invasions islamiques barbares. L’alliance des européens et leur volonté farouche de sauver leur civilisation ont été des facteurs décisifs.
