Ezra Levant getting sued by — I know you won’t believe this — another Canadian Human Rights Commission lawyer:
He complains that I made fun of his courtroom antics, when he told a tribunal chairman that the whole hearing had to stop because Vigna didn’t “feel in a serene state of mind”. I compared Vigna’s lame series of excuses – a discussion that went on for twenty pages of court transcripts! – to a student who pulled the fire alarm to get out of writing an exam.
You’d think that Vigna would want to forget about that awful, awful day when he turned the tribunal hearing into his own therapy session. But not Vigna – he says he’s going to sue me for calling his drama audition a “farce”.
There’s a term for this: SLAPP, or strategic lawsuit against public participation. It’s Richard Warman’s specialty, and now Vigna’s getting in on the game. And, I’ll be candid: if it weren’t for the support of the blogosphere, I’d probably crumble under the pressure of it.
If you’re having trouble keeping score, Warren Kinsella, who thinks I’m a Nazi and Ezra Levant’s a Nazi and Kate McMillan’s a Nazi and Jay Currie’s a Nazi, is suing because somebody called him a Nazi.
Stormfront member Richard Warman, who’s testified under oath (after initially denying it) that he goes on hate websites and posts messages under false names, is suing people who say he goes on hate websites and posts messages under false names.
And now Giacomo Vigna, the genius hired at Canadian taxpayers’ expense by the CHRC, is suing Ezra Levant for, er, comparing him to an incident on Seinfeld. Given that the Canadian Islamic Congress “human rights” complaint on Maclean’s “flagrant Islamophobia” includes my review of Little Mosque On The Prairie, the deranged Dominion is clearly determined to be the world leader in sitcom jurisprudence.
