Welcome to listeners of The Mancow Show!
Here's a quick summary of my battle with radical Islam -- and their "useful idiots" in Canada's human rights commissions.
1. Two years ago, the now-defunct Western Standard magazine reprinted the Danish cartoons of Mohammed. I was the publisher.
2. In response, a radical Muslim imam named Syed Soharwardy asked the Calgary Police Service to arrest me. They didn't, of course. So Soharwardy complained to the Alberta Human Rights Commission, a government agency. Here's his hand-scrawled complaint; here's my reply. For 900 days, using government lawyers and taxpayers money, they have been pursuing me, infringing on my natural rights of free speech, freedom of the press and freedom of religion. According to Access to Information documents, there are 15 bureaucrats working on my file. I'm a major crime scene.
3. On January 11th, a government "human rights officer" interrogated me for 90 minutes. Instead of bowing my head, I used the opportunity to challenge the moral and legal basis of the complaint, and the human rights commission itself. I recorded the interrogation and posted video clips to YouTube. Over 600,000 people have watched those -- and it helped ignite a national debate about freedom of speech, government censorship, and the separation of mosque and state.
4. Soharwardy has abandoned his complaint against me, but an identical complaint has been filed by the Edmonton Council of Muslim Communities, so I'm still under the gun.
5. As I've campaigned against this "soft jihad" against me, I've criticized human rights commissions, their infringements on our liberty and their abuses of process. That has led to a raft of nuisance lawsuits being filed against me and other bloggers.
