When the sheer unadulterated stupidity of El-Mo’s Kids began to emerge, in the early days of the Mark Steyn case, I asked here whether or not Osgoode Hall Law School had affirmative action programs.
The answer turns out to be an unsurprising “yes.”
Like me, Ezra Levant saw one of the Four on TV last night and was thoroughly unimpressed:
“There are two possibilities here: Khurrum Awan is really that bad a lawyer, or he’s lying through his teeth. It’s hard to believe that, even with its affirmative action programs, Osgoode Hall Law School would admit someone so thick as to support the first possibility, or if they did, to graduate him. I believe the second possibility is more likely true: that, like his boss Mohamed Elmasry, Khurrum Awan will say anything and do anything to promote the cause of radical Islam and to undermine our Western freedoms. If that means lying to CTV and its viewers about the nature of a human rights commission, why, that’s just a little bit of taqiyya.
“Or maybe it’s both option one and option two: because anyone who would utter such an easily checkable fib isn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer. When I first heard Awan was going to be on TV after me, I groaned. Not anymore: as far as I’m concerned, the more Canada hears from him and the rest of Elmo’s Kids, the more damage they do to their credibility — and, hopefully, to the human rights commissions themselves.”
Allow myself to repeat myself: the only people “exposing Muslims to hatred and contempt” are the Muslims going after Mark Steyn and Ezra Levant.
Last night, Awan retiterated the Osgoode’s Four’s obsession with Maclean’s publisher Ken Whyte’s declaration that he would “rather go bankrupt” than publish their unsolicited, unedited anti-Steyn screed.
Weird how fixated they are on Whyte’s rather noble, old fashioned principled stance.
Me? Well, I’m reminded of Thomas More, or even Martin Luther’s “Here I stand…”
Oh, wait: those were two Christians. I’ve never heard of Muslim historical figures being so principled; they tend to just go around killing people, marrying nine-year-old girls or stealing algebra from the Hindus.
I guess it illustrates the difference between a shame culture and an honour culture.
Still, anyone who’s seen a Frank Capra film would recognize Whyte’s attitude. Are these guys so culturally tone deaf?
I never thought I’d say this, but maybe more teenaged kids need to read The Fountainhead.
Or maybe they could just watch the Pakistani adaptation:
(I’ve just emailed Mark at Shocking Videos to see if he can’t score the whole movie for me. 5MinutesToLive doesn’t have it.)
You’d think Canadian law students would have a clearer notion of the sanctity of private property.
Oh wait: the Charter doesn’t protect Canadians’ right to private property.
Hence the Scott Brockie case.
No wonder Steyn’s accusers are so confident. It’s a natural progression from Brockie to Steyn/Maclean’s.
Assuming you’re an idiot, that is.
PS: Remember to send your polite yet enthusiastic support to MP Keith Martin TODAY, especially since other Liberals are calling him a “Nazi sympathizer” for tabling a motion to amend one sentence in the Canadian Human Rights Act:
