All in the name of peace, love and understanding…
The Manitoba Human Rights Commission has ruled that there is “no reasonable basis in the evidence” for the hate speech charge against B’nai Brith Canada that it spent more than five years investigating, based on an anonymous tipster, a complainant who was not there and the secret report of a secret expert.
Even today, with the dismissal of the complaint and the release of an investigation report, B’nai Brith still does not know the identity of its accusers, nor what exactly is alleged to have been said at the conference. One of the few direct quotations in the investigation report, the word “ragheads,” was found to have been used as part of a warning not to dismiss Islamist terrorism with empty epithets.
So it has come to this.
Someone with an animus toward someone else can concoct a totally bogus story about that person using the word “raghead” (as if) and, purely on the basis of innuendo and rumour, an entire provincial “legal” system can be tied up for half a decade trying to determine if said epithet was indeed ever hurled.
What a pathetic excuse for—and grotesque mockery of—a justice system!
