Ezra Levant on Coren TV show

For anyone who did not see civil rights activist, journalist and right-wing commentator, Mr. Ezra Levant on last night’s Michael Coren Show, Mr. Levant offers a second chance to see segments of the show on his blog. Do yourselves a favour and watch these.

Coren’s show is usually a mixed bag of run of the mill ideologues and political party hacks and true intellectuals. Unfortunately, the former outnumber the latter by a wide margin. It’s also true that the show allows an exchange of ideas and debate on a pretty wide range of topics and is not biased towards left-wing views—a refreshing change for Toronto-area MSM.

Last night’s show was several cuts above the recent average. Mr. Levant is promoting his new book, Shakedown, which chronicles his three-year battle with the human rights commission. This is pretty disturbing stuff, made all the more so since it took place in our country while a Conservative government help power.

If Mr. Levant’s book is anywhere close to being as entertaining as he is on TV, it’ll be worth a read. And even if it isn’t, I still plan to buy the book as a small gesture of support to a man who has shown the sort of grit and determination I admire.

The book, Shakedown: How Our Government is Undermining Democracy in the Name of Human Rights, is available at Amazon.

The more light we can shine on the activities on these rogue government agencies that pretend to protect our “human” rights, the less damage they are likely to do. Hats off to Mr. Levant, and I hope his book sells well.
