Muslims Trying to Silence Mark Steyn for Saying Muslims Want to Silence People

If not so sad, it would be funny.
If Maclean's, Canada's top-selling magazine, is found “guilty," it could face financial or other penalties. And the affair could have a devastating impact on opinion journalism in Canada generally.

As it happens, Canadian human-rights commissions have already come down hard on those whose writings they dislike, like critics of gay rights.

Nor should Americans dismiss this campaign against Steyn and Maclean's as merely another Canadian eccentricity. Speech cops in America, too, are forever attempting similar efforts - most visibly, on college campuses.

When people say I oppose hate crimes because I don't care if blacks or gays are attacked, they are wrong. I just don't want to end up like Canada.
