And in one particularly controversial episode, a Web site that claims to document Zionist influence on popular culture published an e-mail exchange with Mr. Neumann in which he said he would support any "effective strategy" to help Palestinians. "If it means encouraging vicious, racist anti-Semitism or the destruction of the state of Israel, I don't care," Mr. Neumann was quoted as writing. He has since said the comments were published against his wishes and has refused to comment on their accuracy.
Real Menard, the Bloc MP who co-chairs the Canada-Palestine Parliamentary Association, refused to comment when he was asked why Mr. Neumann has been invited to speak.
There are echoes of the George Galloway affair here. The anti-Israel invective will be similar to that delivered by the British MP to Canadian audiences by video-link, after he was banned from this country for donating aid to the Hamas government in Gaza. But this will not be a speech delivered to a rag-tag band of students and activists in some church hall. Rather, a group of elected democrats will hear from someone who denies the legitimacy of another democracy.
(...) A spokesman said yesterday that no Conservative MPs would attend the speech and he urged Liberal and NDP members not to lend credibility to Mr. Neumann's views.
At least the Conservatives will not lend the piece of shit any legitimacy. They will not be there.
"In a free country like Canada, Mr. Neumann has the right to air his noxious views. The corollary, of course, is that we can and must criticize them. Neumann's farrago of cant, conspiracy theory and hate are completely repugnant to our government, and we make no apology for saying so," said Alykhan Velshi, director of communications for Immigration Minister Jason Kenney.
You know, we can invite all kinds of horrible haters to speak in Parliament. But why bother? What's the point?
And who the feck invited the horrible hater in the first place? Must've been some closet Judeophobe. He shouldn't have been invited.
Further, why doesn't the "Human Rights" Commission do something about this hateful guy? I thought they were on an "anti-hate" warpath?
And what's Richard Warman doing? What about Warren Kinsella? Oh, wait... of course. By now we know the truth about such folks, know their true beliefs.
Even further, if it's a "right" to air one's controversial, even hateful views, then how come we aren't allowed to say things like we are opposed to the legtitimization, promotion and special, superior treatment by the state apparatus of homosexuality, bisexuality, transgenderism, and are opposed to fundamentalist Islam and to making any special concessions to it whatsoever? How come, instead of having our right upheld and respected, we get jackbooted by some illegitime fascist kangaroo court who claims to be about "human rights" while taking them away from us?
If this piece of shit gets to spread hatred, contempt and Big Lies against Jews and Israel, then we must therefore abolish the "Human Rights" Commissions and Tribunals so that they can't any longer discriminate and persecute based on they kinds of speech they like or don't like.
