Yes! We’re getting through to someone — and he’s a Liberal

Keith Martin, Liberal MP for Esquimalt—Juan de Fuca has introduced a motion (M-446) calling on the Parliament to delete subsection 13(1) of the Canadian Human Rights Act.

“That’s the very same subsection which makes it a discriminatory practice for individuals or groups to communicate messages that are ‘likely to expose a person or persons to hatred or contempt’, [i.e., introduces the science fiction concept of "pre-crime" into Canadian law] as long as those persons ‘are identifiable on the basis of a prohibited ground of discrimination’. It therefore provides legal grounds for ‘human rights complaints’ against those who say or publish anything the special interest groups may not agree with. The most recent victims to such complaints are: a journalist — Mark Steyn, a publisher — Ezra Levant and a political party leader — Ron Gray.”

PLEASE send a congratulatory word of encouragement to Dr. Martin through his website. 

Contact your MP and tell them you support this private members bill and you hope they will too.

But wait: BlazingCatFur has a warning:

“Poor Keith he has no idea his actions will trigger double secret subclause WXJ9 of the Canadian Human Rights Act. More popularly known as the Warman Clause: WXJ9 reads ‘No one but Richard Warman may discuss, use, apply, think or pre-think about or otherwise attempt to tamper with my self-aggrandizing livliehood by threatening repeal, deletion and or modification of Section 13(1).’”

UPDATE from Ezra Levant:

“The fact that Martin is a ‘visible minority’ is irrelevant to most normal Canadians, but to the identity politics Left, it’s a sign of his moral virtue, and thus makes him even more politically safe.”
