Bernie "Burny" Farber and Mark Freiman claim to speak for Jews
Bernie "Burny" Farber was appalling. It's not that his views were more condescending than Lynch's, or more false than Moon's. They weren't, particularly. It's that they were falsely made in the name of all Canadian Jews.
That was all Burny actually said: that he was there on behalf of the Jews. Which is simply not true.
He quickly handed the microphone over to Mark Freiman, the new president of the Canadian Jewish Congress. Freiman personified the merger between Jews and state censorship: he himself was a CHRC prosecutor on a section 13 case. Disgusting: a Jew for book burning.
I did detect, however, some political fear in the CJC tag-team. Burny has never given such a brief speech in his life -- and it was completely self-congratulatory; he actually didn't speak to section 13. And Freiman, after bowing to his Golden Calf of censorship, then hinted that there were reforms that should be made.
Has someone given Burny a talking to? Has someone put him on a leash, and told Freiman to slowly back away from the CHRC/Warman train wreck?
