Fighting for Freedom

As I am sure the whole conservative blogosphere knows by now, a war will soon be waged in our court system.

On one side in this legal conflict are Ezra Levant, Kathy Shaidle, Kate McMillan and the Free Dominion; on the other side are those forces who want to strip away our right to free expression.

The stakes in this battle are high.

And although I know we conservatives have our differences, one thing we can all agree on is that we need to protect the free market place of ideas.

That's why I am urging everyone out there to contribute as generously as you can to the special funds that have been set up to help finance the legal defence for these conservatives who are fighting for our freedom.

Contribute directly to one of these funds or to all of them.

I know it's costly to defend freedom; but not defending freedom is costlier still.

Don't forget to contribute to the defense funds of all the people St. Ezra has sued too.

Believe it or not bobby, they're fighting for your freedom as well.

Robert, your statement is irrelevant. However no one is stopping you from contributing to whomever you wish.

I don't personally need the freedom to libel people.

Bwhahaha! Sure they are. St. Ezra won't even allow me to comment on his site.

Wow, even on Conservative blogs, Ezra Levant has the ability to polarize people.

He is Canada's own version of Hillary Clinton, I guess!

Like any good conservative, I will keep my money in my own pocket, thanks!

But you aren't a conservative anon, and being a leftist you wouldn't have any money to give anyway;)

Robert McClelland said...

This is a fight for all of us, even the Robert Mcclellands and Big City Libs of the world.

I'm more than capable of fighting my own battles without the assistance of a retarded, hysterical digital lynch mob, thank you very much. In fact, given the bumbling, ignorance laden [cough]assistance you've all given Kate I think I'm going to insist that you not help me in any way, shape or form.

Robert just as we are taught to hate the sin but love the sinner, we hate your stupidty but we don't hate you.

Curious post, curiouser comment exchanges.

So now supporting Ezra Levant is a litmus test for Canadian conservatives??

Levant is a serial defamation litigant, and, as most people he associates with are conservatives, most people he sues, or threatens with defamation suits, are C/conservatives.

Levant sometimes pretends to be a socon or a libertarian, depending on the audience. What he is is a neocon, and a clear and present danger to freedom of speech himself.

I challenge Mr. Nicholls or any of these blogosycophants to even COUNT the number of people Levant has sued or threatened to sue for defamation. The laughable thing is, Ezra Levant's reputation is so poor it is hard to believe he thinks he would be awarded damages in most cases.

Levant may be right about Warman and the HRCs. In fact, he is. But to now whine and complain when Warman uses Ezra's preferred bully tactics, Canadian Defamation law, is HILARIOUS.

Where, indeed, are the defence funds for all the principled and hard working Canadian Conservatives Ezra has sought to destroy for daring to exercise their freedom of speech?
