The Shiny Happy Gulag gets put in its place.

Some have well dubbed Canada “the Shiny Happy Gulag” because of its attacks on basic freedoms such as speech and religion. Well, the SHG may have met its match in Ezra Levant, who isn’t taking any crap from the concentration camp guards bureaucrats.

Levant has been hauled before the so-called Alberta Human Rights Commission for publishing those cartoons of Mohammed that Islamic thugs used as an excuse to kill non-Muslims. And he is getting in the face of those who would punish him for exercising his right to free speech.

His opening statement may be found here. I particularly like this line:

Now the commission, which is funded by a secular government, from the pockets of taxpayers of all backgrounds, is taking it upon itself to be an enforcer of the views of radical Islam. So much for the separation of mosque and state.

This site is closely following the case, including posting videos from the hearing.

It’s high time real men and strong women stand up to those who would take away our basic freedoms in the West and let them know that they can take their gulags and shove it!

I pray we see more of this. And with liberals and leftists overreaching on both sides of the Atlantic, maybe we will. God help us if we don’t.

Canada: Freedom of Speech succumbing to Kangaroo Courts of the Human Rights Commission

Proceedings against Ezra Levant are nothing short of ridiculous, but let's consider the implications for moderate Muslims. This "investigation" will further divide Muslims and non-Muslims in Canada. It will give credence to radicals' claims that the West is at war with Islam. It will antagonize non-Muslims and moderate Muslims will be pushed towards radicalization. Regardless of the outcome, once again Islamists skillfully manipulated Dhimmi justice system and came out as clear winners. Thank you, Human Right Commission!

Muslims Against Sharia are proud to be the first Muslim group to publicly support Ezra Levant and denounce HRC inquisition
