“If you don’t ever feel hate, you have a broken personality,” says Canadian lawyer and publisher Ezra Levant.
In this interview with Free Speech Debate, Ezra Levant, a Canadian lawyer and publisher, slams Canada’s human rights commissions as “fake kangaroo courts” that “love counterfeit rights like the right to be offended”. Levant says he was the only person to be prosecuted in the west for re-publishing the Prophet Muhammad cartoons that were first printed in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten. For Levant, hate speech is not a crime or an offense. He says: “Hate’s a human emotion. If you don’t ever feel hate you have a broken personality. Everyone of us feels love and hate, contempt and respect probably every day.”
