You would think that by now the Jews would have figured out that those "hate speech" laws do not protect them; that, in fact, what they do do is end up silencing Jews and empowering their enemies, especially those of the Leftist/Islamist persuasion who despise the Jewish state and its supporters. You would think that at some point--maybe, say, after B'nai Brith Canada endured a lengthy "hate speech" prosecution -- they would have twigged to the reality that state efforts to hobble free speech are not only not, as they say, good for the Jews, they are catastrophic for the larger society. How so? They result in society having to mind its manners and stifle its "blasphemy." In other words, in a free society becoming less free and, ultimately, not free at all.
That is something that sails right over the head of the Official Jew quoted in the CJC piece. Re the pro-Palestinian group's concerns,
“These people must also think Elvis, JFK and Marilyn Monroe are residing on a desert island somewhere,” Richard Marceau, CIJA’s general counsel and senior government adviser, said in a phone interview from Ottawa.
He emphasized what is being proposed as a change to Bill C-13, the federal government’s proposed cyberbullying law, “is nothing new. It just brings into line, with several provincial antibullying and hate laws, section 718.2, subsection A, subsection I of the Criminal Code of Canada.”Well, if those particular sections and subsections are involved, I guess there's nothing to worry about. ;)
I realize that the Nazis trash-talked the Jews, and then murdered them during the Holocaust. But isn't it a better idea to allow our local Zion-loathers to bloviate away in their uber-zany manner so that A) we can see that they're crazy and B) we are free to rebut them?
When, oh, when, will Official Jews finally figure out--and, yes, I realize that for them it's counterintuitive--that climbing aboard the Shut Up Express is not the way to go?
