Ezra Levant was the publisher of the Western Standard magazine in Canada in Feb. 2006 when he published the infamous Danish Muhammed cartoons. Last Friday, Levant appeared before Alberta, Canada's "Human Rights Commission" to answer charges that he hurt the feelings of a couple of Muslims.
He's uploaded videos of his interrogation to YouTube -- you can find all of them there. And I encourage you to watch them, because Levant makes some of the most passionate and articulate defenses of the Western ideal of free speech that I've heard in quite some time.
Here's his opening statement:
Here's his answer to the question about what his intent was in publishing the cartoons:
Levant gets bonus points from me for using the term "bloody" in his answer.
Finally, there's this very short clip where the government interrogator says that Levant is "entitled to [his] opinions." It's unintentionally hilarious because he's obviously not entitled to his opinion since it's his opinion that got him dragged before this pseudo-court in the first place.
