Levant relied heavily on research and work done by Fromm, Lemire, me and other Stormfront posters, but at the same time took a shot at us by calling people like Lemire "hate-mongers". His friend Steyn is saying how Levant is sticking up for us all, yet Steyn refuses to lend support to Lemire's constitutional challenge. Steyn and Levant are in it for the money and self preservation, not for the greater good.
Of course, it doesn't mean what Levant and Steyn are doing is not a positive for us in general. Maybe with their help, Lemire can take down Warman and the CHRC in his constitutional challenge. After all, levant mentions Stormfront in his book, and I'm sure a few people will investigate on their own and check our site out.
Any publicity is good publicity.
I've been saying for ages now that most of what's in ShakeDown and in Ezra's legal defense has been stuff regurgitated from Neo-Nazi websites. If you want to know why he's likely to lose his defamation case, and why his crusade has been shunned by lawmakers (even if embraced in the MSM) then that's why.
You can read the origonal post here, on Stormfront itself, if you are so inclined.
This is appaling but not surprising. Shouldn't this be shared with MSM?
"The enemy of my enemy is my friend."
I'm doing what I can, Sue. A few columnists read this blog. Unforunately, I think that for many of them, this is about narrow self interest. What profession is FOR greater regulation of that profession?
Hold on a minute...
"Any publicity is good publicity" Then why do you feel it is necessary to do exactly what you accuse Ezra of and go further by linking to their website, which is really what they want? Just asking...

Because I would have any one that would question what I have written here to check the source. I could use a screen cap (and indeed I have one) but alot of times they are hard to read, so...
...even if embraced in the MSM...
I don't know; the only segment of the MSM that's giving this any credibility is The National Post and MacLean's, which are, for all intents and purposes, the same publication.
I couldn't believe that mediocrity Andrew Potter's review of this thing. He's not even trying anymore.
Bill Noble (the Dune fan) is also continuing to perpetuate the Cools canard as well.
Ezra's book is number 2 on the best seller list. I urge people to write a letter to the editor of the Ottawa Citizen critical of Potter's laudatory review. He in effect calls Ezra a liar, shows he is just that with his story about how in 1966 the CJC funded the Canadian Nazi Party. Potter called Levant on that lie but still praises the book? Unreal!!!
Potter's a very lazy intellectual.
Ti-Guy I think its more than that. I am honestly beginning to believe that most mainstream journalists are simply afraid of Ezra. He is relentless in his feral persona; attacks attacks. He says anything he wants about people, libel means nothing to him. Just ask Richard Warman, Warren Kinsella or Bernie Farber all of whom have been subject to Ezra's poisonous tongue. Really you have to give these three credit because they never shirked even though they became victims in that cesspool which masquerades as the edgy rightwing blogosphere.
If only the MSM had half the guts those three have shown Levant would be toilet paper today.
I disagree. I don't think any real journalists are afraid of the Ez. I think its straight self interest. What they see as a matter of freedom I see as a matter of standards. The possibility that a journalist might get called for Hate Speech means they have to pay attention, to work harder, to express whatever content they wish to and stay on the right side of the line. The MSM is--taken as a single entity--simply pro-low standards. But HOW low is appalling; you can be PLENTY racist and stay on the right side of hate speech laws. These guys want to do even worse than what the law proscribes.
But HOW low is appalling;Potter's review of Shakedown being a case in point.
I wonder just how many careers he can suck at?
BCL, its not the hate speech issue I am even concerend about anymore. Levant is now a mainstream personality. You can't argue with the sales of his book. He is number 2 on the Canadian bestseller lists. He got there, in my judgement, becuase journalists are afraid to confront his inadequacies.
How else to judge anyone who read his book who would take as gospel any contention that a group like the Canadian jewish Congress would fund the Canadian Nazi Party?
Its so absurd that it would be funny were it not so serious.
And then we have a guy like Potter who does his homework exposes this lie and then basically tries to rationalize it by inferring that hey its Levant, he's quirky, he's making a point about HRCs so not getting it right is not that important. This way he protects himself and does not have to worry about Levant slamming him without mercy. Its an old school-bully trick.
Yes part of it is laziness but a much greater part is that these "journalists" see what Levant has done to others and simply do not want to be on the wrong side of his mouth. Like the cowardly lion they lack courage.
Hey, BCL, Mitka has a point, "Levant is now a mainstream personality."
How mainstream? Well you remember the London event the Lying Jackal tried to have stopped with his Kathy is a racist nonsense - 600 people at $5.00 a pop not including book sales which were brisk.
The whole HRC hate speech regulation defence is dying as it is exposed. The basement Nazis have nothing to do with it - rather it is ordinary Canadians who do not want people like Lucy and Stacy and Lynch deciding what is and is not permissible speech.

Nice to see the Ez can pay his many, many legal bills.
How we doing on the actual legislative front?
I thought so. Diddley even out of Alberta.
C'mon, BCL. The tide of pubic opinion is unstoppable. Mostly because the five people who are waging this campaign against the hrc's are fat.
I am a card-carrying Liberal (literally now, thank you Mr. Ignatieff) and I donate to the party.
I also think what Ezra's doing is right. This post is an ad-hominem attack with no merit. Your readers know you don't like Ezra for a variety of reasons, hell, I don't like Ezra for a variety of reasons.
That doesn't change the fact that many, Liberals, Conservatives, and Nazis alike think he's right.
I also suspect he will be proven right in a court of law. Now if his overlord Mr. Harper had only kept the court challenges program alive...
