“truth may be used for widely disparate ends.”

28 Feb

Andrew Coyne on the Supreme Court of Canada’s asinine ruling on “free speech”…

It might be interesting to know whether any of this is true — have Jews, for example, the most persistent target of hate speech through the ages, been “silenced”? — but apparently it does not matter: the government is not required to prove its case is true, and the defendant is not saved if his case is. At one point the Court muses that a failure to ban hate speech, in so far as it “silences” the targeted groups, may be “more rather than less damaging to freedom of expression.”

From which we may conclude that any government that relaxed such restrictions would soon find itself condemned by the Court — as a threat to free speech.

Ahem…

Only $10.10/hr ? Why not $20.10, or $30.10…

The White House is coming under pressure from liberal Democrats in the House and Senate to press for a minimum wage hike as high as $10.10.

Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) argues President Obama “missed the mark” in calling to raise the minimum wage to $9 in his State of the Union address, and his staff met with White House staff last week to argue for a higher number.

No word on where the money comes from….

Just for fun…

David Plouffe tweeted Wednesday: “Watching Woodward last 2 days is like imagining my idol Mike Schmidt facing live pitching again. Perfection gained once is rarely repeated.”

In other words, Woodward is just too old to take seriously…

Jihadist death sentence sparks deadly riots

jihadists are having to answer for the death of over 3 million people in their 1971 fight for independence. Bangladesh fought a nine-month war for freedom from Islamic Pakistan.

One of the war criminals was finally sentenced to death yesterday sparking mad bloodshed and violence by devout Muslims.

They Call Them “Beards” for a Reason

One of these same war criminals, a bloodthirsty jihadist, is here in America and he’s President of ICNA, one of the media’s beloved Muslim “advocacy groups.”

Only 3 million…

On January 21, the tribunal sentenced Abul Kalam Azad, a former Jamaat member, to death in absentia after he was found guilty of torture, rape and genocide during the independence war.

In its second verdict, on February 5, the tribunal sentenced another senior Jamaat member, Abdul Quader Mollah, 64, to life in prison after he was found guilty of murder, rape, torture and arson.

Both verdicts triggered protests by Jamaat supporters, in which at least 15 people were killed.

Congress passes bill renewing anti-violence law

Obama, in a statement, said “renewing this bill is an important step towards making sure no one in America is forced to live in fear” and said he would sign the bill “as soon as it hits my desk.”

Don’t worry about the fact the act violates Section II and III of the Constitution…

The Truth is Not a Defense…

“I’m very concerned regarding the state of religious liberty and free speech in this country in light of this ruling.”

Supreme Court strikes down part of Saskatchewan human rights code, but rules against pamphleteer –

In narrowing the definition of Saskatchewan’s hate speech laws, the Supreme Court set out a test to act as a guide for other provinces when viewing hatred in the context of a prohibition of expression: whether a reasonable person would view it as likely to expose a person or persons to “detestation and vilification on the basis of a prohibited ground of discrimination.”

Free Speech in Canada… unless its “likely” to hurt someone’s feelings – Canada’s lawyers can’t wait for the new billings…

Gay Marriage Now a “Civil Right” – Straight Marriage Not So Much

28 Feb

The Obama administration make up more shit ….

Eric Holder: Gay Marriage Is the Next Civil Rights Issue

“From my perspective, this is really the latest civil-rights issue,” Holder told ABC News. “It is the question of whether or not American citizens are going to be treated with equal protection of the laws. And so with regard to Prop. 8, we’re in the process now of deciding what position we’re gonna take.”

In a February 2011 letter to House Speaker John Boehner, Holder announced the administration’s intention to drop its defense of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) ban on gay marriage–a holdover from the last Justice Department, which had similarly sought to uphold the law.

A new Amendment maybe…

State investigation launched after non-Muslim public school students dress in burqas

The young girl’s father wondered why the teacher was giving children lessons about Islam in a geography class.

“She went from learning about Mexico to learning about Russia to learning about Islam,” he said. “Islam is not a country. Islam is not a continent.”

“They were asked about their perception of Islam,” she said. “Most of the class said they thought about terrorism. And her response was, ‘we’re going to change the way we perceive Islam.’”
