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.
