The New Rule On Campus: Free Speech For Israel-bashers — But Censorship For Pro-lifers

by Jonathan Kay - March 6th, 2008 - National Post (Canada)

Of course, censorious activists and lawmakers never actually concede they are engaged in "censorship." Invariably, they try to argue that the speech they are targeting is so offensive as to not even constitute legitimate expression. Consider, for instance, what has been going on at York University . . . in other words, the millions of pro-life Canadians who would presume to voice their objection to abortion do not have "valid" viewpoints.

I find it sad that our Republican candidate for President helped to validate the duplicitous attitude of these extremists by passage of McCain-Feingold. When you start down the path to censorship you can always find some rational reason why you are not violating our Constitution. However you are. Why McCain would align himself with these advocates of censorship is still a concern.
