Balls of Steel
This is quite simply the most inspiring bit of reading I've done in a good long time. It's from Ezra Levant, the courageous publisher of the Western Standard who published the Mohammed Cartoons in his newspaper at the height of the ridiculous controversy and then again yesterday on his blog. The link goes to his opening statement to the "Alberta Human Rights Commission," a tribunal that he rightly calls a "kangaroo court." You see, he's been brought up on essentially the complaint that he hurt an imam's very very delicate feelings by publishing the cartoons, as though any religious nutball's feelings were somehow more important than the human right to free speech.
I got this from a post on Samizdata, where Perry de Havilland calls it "a master class in confronting the enemies of liberty." Indeed. It is spectacular. Go have a read, and then watch the videos he's posted of it, and then click the link provided and donate to help with his legal fees.
