But they're all taking their cure from Ezra, and recycling the same fake facts.
Would you, then, like to critique Prof. Moon's comments in this story, at the very least, so that you can at least begin to make a rational point?
It is mostly about Moon:http://bigcitylib.blogspot.com/2009/06/brean-on-chrc.html
Sorry, but again you've done selective straw-man shopping, pulling dribs and drabs out of Moon's report, ignoring criticisms re: Warman's postings, ignoring the fact CHRC does not adhere to standards of fundamental justice, and the lack of legal aid for indigent defendants. You have never addressed the fact the CHRC has no set criteria upon which to adjudicate on hate speech. You and your friends never address the fact that anti-Jewish hate spread by Muslims in Canada does not seem to interest the CHRC, even though Islamicists have -- unlike our pathetic local Nazis -- actually committed violent acts in Canada recently such as the burning of a Jewish school library in Montreal.You still seem to think jurisdiction shopping is fine. You also seem to like the idea of web pages being pulled while cops consider whether they are illegal.As for your friend TiGuy, he's just stupid. Jerks like him give l/Liberals a bad name.
BTW, I do see why you want some curb on race-baiting on the Internet. I'd be the first one tgo agree that it's going on full-time at Five Feet of Furry and Small Dead Gophers. This, however, is not the way to do it.Right now, the best way would be a really good web page that blows the whistle on hate peddlars of all races and political leanings. Publicity and scrutiny drives these people nuts.As for Ezra, here's a question: was it a good idea or a bad idea for the Alberta Human Rights Commission to become involved in te complaint over the Mohammed cartoons, which were already very easily available on the Internet?Was it a good idea for the BC Human Rights Commission to allow itself to be jurisdiction-shopped into hearing the Maclean's complaint?There's a problem here that need to be fixed. I suspect the Tories will "fix" the HRCs if they get a majority. The fact the CRCs are involved in censorship will be used as a stick to beat them to death, ruining access for people who have complaints about discrimination in housing, employment and the other discrimination problems the HRCs were rightly created to fix.
