I Want This Guy


I live in Des Moines, Iowa, home of "hand-raising" lady, Carolyn Washburn, editor of the Des Moines Register. I hearby nominate this guy, Ezra Levant, to take her place.

Amen brother. Asked why, in the video, he published the Muhammad cartoons in his magazine, he gives this answer:

"I published the Muhammad cartoons because it's my bloody right to do so!"
He gives wonderful, thoughtful, serious answers to the PC questions asked of him. Bravo!

Was this the Canadian government going after him (thought I heard "Alberta" mentioned here)? What a fantastic response though. How pathetic when a government tries to interpret the intent of what is supposed to be free speech.

This was so good I had to watch twice. :)

Yeah... it was the Canadian government going after him. He published the cartoons, and a couple of Muslims filed a complaint with the government, so Officer McGovern queries him about his intent. Ezra tells her to take a bloody leap, which is great. It's none of the government's business why someone chooses to publish political cartoons. And again I say, how weak is your religion when you are so easily offended and seek redress?

I don't know what his potential punishment might be, but when the government can curb your speech, it's a problem.
