Ezra defends free speech on a panel of young ‘woke’ journalists in London

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On the latest episode of The Ezra Levant Show, the final pieces of why the right to offend has been put aside fell into place at a panel for young journalists at the Defend Media Freedom Conference.

The event, which was held at the same time as Tommy Robinson was sent to prison for the crime of journalism, is funded by left-wing billionaire Pierre Omidyar. Omidyar is a kind of mini George Soros, using his money to influence politics all around the world.

A crucial aspect to free speech is the right to offend. In this world where feelings matter more than legal rights, that same right to offend is in a precarious position.

It’s very simple why the courts should reject any attempt to define hate speech. Even if yo hate or love the current administration in either the U.S. or Canada in the future we might have a corrupt government who will reserve the right to determine what hate speech is (if they haven’t already) and then stack the courts and media with like minded paid for puppets (if they haven’t already). However much we might dislike and despise comments we disagree with, if a free press which is critical of unjust practices and governments is to survive the right to express opinions we might consider hateful is imperative.

Damn shame about Guelph which once upon a time was a free speech “university town” and staged well know marathons… At the same time the Commies were shutting down free speech in Guelph, the PPC in lower Vancouver Island were having a friendly picnic in Langford’s recreational sport grounds featuring local candidates Lily Bowman and Ron Broda… So free speech is alive and well in “confrontational issues B.C.” but not tolerated any more in Ontari-ari-ario???

Communist thugs manage to get PPC event in Guelph cancelled after threatening violence.

VIOLENCE. FROM THE FAR LEFT.

Will all the “journalists” so preoccupied with manifestions of “hate” cover this? Will CBC publish a long piece on the rising threat of the far left?

Never cancel. Never. Now they will harass all the rest of the PPC tour dates. This is election interference. If there is a threat the police have a responsibility and a duty to provide adequate security.

Threats such as this one are what happens in Trudeau’s Canada when brainwashed feral children grow up on left wing spin and are encouraged and enabled by vile liberal rhetoric.

Ezra, I think this may have been one of the best opportunities given to you.
These kids may be too inexperienced to understand what you’re talking about, but…………….you may have just planted the seed.

I think God put you exactly where you were supposed to be to plant that seed.
