An Early Masterpiece by Ezra Levant

Posted by rantingkraut on October 7, 2008

Fredrick Töben’s recent arrest reminded me of this long term prediction by Ezra Levant, titled “Free speech is a Jew’s best friend”. Eerily prescient and well worth reading:
“… the central pillar of law is the concept of precedent. Judges must look to past verdicts to guide future decisions. So if we acceded to a politically restrictive law simply because today it happens to handicap our opponents, we will be advantaged only temporarily. For the precedent will have been set and it will wait for us like a trap. One day it will be us who is gagged by the censor.” (pdf)

  1. What sort of Truth is it that crushes the freedom to seek the truth?

    I wish to express my outrage that the Holocaust, unlike any other historical event, is not subject to critical revisionist investigation. Furthermore I deplore the fact that many so-called democratic states have laws that criminalize public doubting of the Holocaust. It is my position that the veracity of Holocaust assertions should be determined in the marketplace of scholarly discourse and not in our legislatures bodies and courthouses.

    Let’s end ‘thought crimes’ in the twenty-first century. Dr. Toben’s thoughts cannot be killed by his imprisonment.

    ARE you willing to HELP?

    Peace.

  2. Michael Santomauro,

    Since you are asking, I am not willing to help. It seems that some people –among holocaust deniers like yourself as well as among their enemies– simply can’t distinguish between support for freedom of speech and agreement with Holocaust denial. In this case, I support freedom of speech, that’s all.
    I also leave your comment and links as they are. Not that I think these links lead anywhere worthwhile, I just trust readers to make up their own mind.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
