The meaning of free speech

Today’s ‘Post’ editorial "An insult to free speech" comes down very hard on Mohammedan activist and ‘Sock Puppet’ Khurrum Awan's efforts to have our ludicrous "Human Rights" Commissions punish Maclean’s magazine and Mark Steyn for their alleged "Islamophobia". His sorry behaviour is very well summed up with this line:
If someone were actively seeking to stir up the worst stereotypes Canadians hold in regard to the repressive political cultures being imported into Canada by Arab and Muslim immigrants, it’s hard to imagine anyone doing a better job than Khurrum Awan.
Contrast Awan's completely warped understanding of the freedom of speech with gay rights lobby group EGALE's sensible view of the Alberta "Human Rights" Commission's persecution of Christian pastor Boissoin. As Ezra Levant observed:
If only the "leaders" of the official Jewish establishment in Canada had such common sense. They would have governments -- by far history's biggest butchers of Jews -- "protect" us from hostile ideas, rather than doing it ourselves.
