Author Mark Steyn is hauled into court for expressing an opinion that he has a right to express an opinion.
December 16, 2007 -- Celebrated author Mark Steyn has been summoned to appear before two Canadian judicial panels on charges linked to his book “America Alone."

The book, a No. 1 bestseller in Canada, argues that Western nations are succumbing to an Islamist imperialist threat. The fact that charges based on it are proceeding apace proves his point.

Steyn, who won the 2006 Eric Breindel Journalism Award (co-sponsored by The Post and its parent, News Corp), writes for dozens of publications on several continents. After the Canadian general-interest magazine Maclean's reprinted a chapter from the book, five Muslim law-school students, acting through the auspices of the Canadian Islamic Congress, demanded that the magazine be punished for spreading “hatred and contempt" for Muslims.

I don't know but I think the Muslim "threat", has been greatly overstated and that before too long the NWO will simply brush aside all religions when they decide the time is right.

The UN and there global warming agenda are the real threat out there everything else is distraction.

Hate laws or any law that prohibits a person from expressing their opinion are just plain wrong. Freedom of speech is just that, whether you agree with the person or not, they must be allowed to express themselves just as you may.

Jeez.

I wonder what would have happened if he wrote that Western nations are succumbing to an Jewish imperialist threat.

Steyn is something of a Jewish extremist himself and he's probably being a bit economical with the truth.

No doubt he'll have plenty of defenders in the mainstream media. All the Christmas-haters will be on his side!

Steyn is an arrogant, smug, smarmy, obnoxious dolt. He's Billy "The Bloody" Kristol with an accent. In other words, a totally useless tool.
