Hypocrisy

I respect Ezra Levant and his ideals. Free speech is the highest form of liberty you can get. Even if you're in shackles, a man able to speak his mind is a man able to taste freedom.

So it astounds me when Ezra Levant, the free speech guy, liberty-promoter extraordinaire, brings to Calgary a woman who suggests this:

"[Democrats] are always accusing us of repressing their speech," she said. "I say let's do it. Let's repress them." She later added, "Frankly, I'm not a big fan of the First Amendment."


And then precedes to use the very system she speaks out against in order to exact revenge on a university campus that protested against her.

For shame, Mr. Levant, for shame. Hypocrisy knows no bounds, not even among the well informed.
