Free Speech and Free Dominion

The Modern Day Inquisition AKA the Human Rights Commission is setting its censoring sights on the Free Dominion website.


Well a complaint was lodged against the site because it allegedly posted comments considered anti-Islamic.

Mind you, the person who complained isn't even a Muslim -- she is offended on behalf of Muslims.

Anyway, the upshot is the Free Dominion site could actually be shut down over this, meaning a voice will be silenced.

Slowly but surely, we are chipping away at the right to free speech in this country, and that's a tragedy.

As someone once said, "Free speech is the whole thing, the whole ball game. Free speech is life itself."

The man who said that also happened to be a Muslim who knows something about the dangers of censorship. His name is Salman Rushdie.
