During his show on Tuesday night, Ezra Levant talked about how Toronto public libraries are now able to refuse event bookings that they deem "likely" to promote hate. Yes, you can be barred from booking a room at a public library if officials decided that you might so much as evoke the feeling of hatred.
This is particularly disturbing because as human beings, we are entitled to feel any emotion we want to. Hatred is a natural human emotion that is perfectly fine to feel, it's only acting on hatred to hurt another person that is illegal. Until now, there has been no such thing as "feelings crimes," yet that is exactly what the Toronto public library system is trying to enforce.
As Levant explains, this is a slippery slope that can't be ignored. What's next, banning books that might promote hate? Will libraries try to ban Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf, ridding modern humans of the chance to learn from the mistakes of history because the book promotes hate?
What the Toronto public library system is a disturbing example of the left trying to act as thought police. Find out more about this in Ezra Levant's latest video, linked to above!
