What goes around, comes around.
In Canada, various leftwing and pro-terror groups have used the odious hate speech laws to bludgeon critics into silence. Even though many of the cases are overturned upon appeal, the accused is out of a lot of money to defend themselves and their reputation is forever damaged. Now these laws might be put to good use…
…by using them to target
Jew-hating Israeli boycott groups. streiff goes on to note that this is actually bad, because even hate speech like this is still free speech; and I, of course, agree. On the other hand, it’s not my country and Canada’s draconian regulations on freedom of expression don’t apply to me. And on the gripping hand? If the Harper administration starts using those laws to smack the Left on the nose enough, the Left will fall all over itself to get those laws repealed.
