“CALGARY – Outspoken conservative commentator Ezra Levant will be before the Alberta Human Rights Commission Friday defending his former magazine’s 2006 publication of a series of Danish cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad.
Members of Calgary’s Muslim community were outraged when Levant’s now-defunct publication, the Western Standard, published the cartoons in February 2006, shortly after their initial appearance in a Danish newspaper led to rioting and protests around the world.”

If there’s anything in this world I am getting tired of, it’s crap like this! Just listen to these guys:
Syed Soharwardy, president of the Islamic Supreme Council of Canada, later filed a complaint against the Western Standard to the Alberta Human Rights Commission.”
If anybody deserve to be sued it’s these guys, for trying to trump freedom of speech! Who do they think they are? And why the hell do they file a complaint to a Human Rights Commission? That’s one of the most asinine things I’ve heard in my entire life! Nobody has any “right not to be offended”, they can just not listen to a given person, not read a certain paper or not look at a certain picture! It’s that simple. I could understand if the newspaper was making threats against Muslims and Islam, but I’m confident that they did not.
I’m sorry, but stuff like this just pisses me off, it’s like they’re trying to pervert the term “human rights” just because they can’t get to be right. Ugh, it’s like a child whining all-day because he/she aren’t allowed to get some get candy or something like that!!!
If you can’t accept that freedom of speech is an essential right in all genuinely free countries, then you shouldn’t reside in that country. If you believe that other people shouldn’t be able to say things you disagree with sort of person, go live in some country like China, Iran, Burma, North Korea or similar countries, with a totalitarian regimes that doesn’t allow freedom of speech.
