Diversity or Freedom? The Two Don't Mix

Why is Pat Buchanan always called a 'facist' by the left when they are champions of hate speech laws and codes??

Freedom of the press is on trial in Canada.

The trial is before a court with the Orwellian title of the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal. The accused are Maclean's magazine and author Mark Steyn. The crime: In mocking and biting tones, they wrote that Islam threatens Western values.


In France, animal rights champion Brigitte Bardot has been fined $23,000 for provoking discrimination and racial hatred by denouncing Muslims who slaughtered a sheep in a religious ceremony. Bardot had been punished five previous times for her statements.

.....Canada's commitment to multiculturalism and the equality of all religions, races and cultures requires the silencing of those who do not believe all races, creeds and cultures are equal.

The dogmas of the Diverse Society dictate that the cherished rights of the Free Society be sacrificed on the altar of social tranquility.

Certainly there are times to 'restrict' certain types of expression: child pornography, personal libel, for example. But when a government or engineered 'society' are governed by irrational principles whose fallacies can easily be illustrated, the only way to 'win' the argument is to not let it take place.

Interestingly enough, the only area where a previously taboo expression has become more mainstream, both legally and in mains stream media, is pornography. ...which again makes me wonder, exactly where the West is headed and who benefits from such standards. A 'decadent' sex obsessed, , distracted public sounds more like the Entruscans than the Romans. Haven't heard of the Entruscans? They're extinct.
