Failing to speak up when one had the chance has its detrimental consequences

Reader comment on item: [Defending Lars Hedegaard:] "A Stew of Anti-Muslim Bile and Conspiracy-Laden Forecasts"

Submitted by NuritG (United States), Mar 7, 2013 at 17:36

Lars Hedegaard is in fact a Marxist; all he wants is to preserve his and our freedom of speech and our human rights, which the Moslems systematically attempt to deny us or take away from us. That is why the Moslems want to shut his mouth, by killing him.

The European Union has promulgated laws which militate against the criticism of Islam on the grounds of hate speech. Politicians, journalists, and ordinary citizens, like Geert Wilders, Lars Hedegaard, and Elisabeth Sabbaditch-Wolff, respectively, have found themselves prosecuted in court for warning their fellow citizens against the infiltration of radical Islam into the body politic.

The same travesty is being repeated in Canada, whose misnamed Human Rights Commissions, which are essentially kangaroo courts that are not required to follow the rules of evidence, have tried such forthright and respectable journalists as Ezra Levant and Mark Steyn for offending Muslim sensibilities. If this is not madness, I don't know what is.

Failing to speak up when one had the chance has its detrimental consequences.
