Government: "Everything is possible I guess" straight from Atlas Shrugged. Ha ha ha

Ezra: "I probably have given 200 interviews with people other than the state where I give a very thoughtfull and nuanced expression of my intent. But the only thing I have to say to the government about why I published it is, that it is my bloody right to do so"

I could have been listening to John Galt himself. What a great practical example.

Listen to this part. It gets better:

Ezra: "I do not seek to be excused from this complaint because I need your test of reasonableness or Laurie Andreachug? the thug from leftbridge? who convicted a christian pastor for having christian views. She is a thug, you're a thug (While pointing at her) Your whole company is a thug."

Ezra: "I do not seek to convince you, because to do so means that I grant you some moral authority"

What a wonderful speaker because it is in front of the government and not in front of a likeminded audience.

 

Global warming is a hoax carbonhoax.org.nz and spread the word.

Quite...

Ezra Levant gave that collectivist junk-heap for brains woman on the CHRC a tongue lashing Ayn Rand would be proud of. This looks to be historic stuff for Canada.
