Mark Steyn: ‘So don’t worry, you still have freedom of speech – until five minutes before you’re scheduled to exercise it’
Mark Steyn on the cancellation of a Canadian “Draw Mohammed” event (and more):
Meanwhile, on June 14th, the New York Theatre Workshop is presenting a benefit for the National Coalition Against Censorship, under the title Playwrights For A Cause, an evening of three one-act plays. It would have been four one-act plays, but Neil LaBute‘s work, Mohammed Gets A Boner, will not now be staged because of its “clear offense to Muslims”.
No word yet on whether the evening’s title will be changed to Playwrights For A Cause, Up To A Point, a benefit for the National Coalition For Self-Censorship.
I think a lot about my poor clueless leftie chum Molly Norris. Where is she? And what did she do to deserve having her life erased? And why do none of her liberal friends ever mention her? There can be no pictures of Mohammed, and so there can be no pictures of Molly, nor Lars, nor Luz, nor of freeborn Canadians at Parliament Hill. Mohammed has his India rubber out, and is erasing us all.
