writes Fr. Raymond de Sousa:
We call to ask Ezra whether he has gone too far.
Maybe this time, Ezra, it would be wise to pull back a bit, take a lower profile, turn down the volume. Don’t you know, Ezra, that you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar? Ezra always listens, but holding back is not his way. He knows that if you use gasoline instead of vinegar, you have a better chance of blowing the whole thing up. (…)
I am pleased that my cautionary advice to Ezra at the beginning of all this was rejected. (…)
Ezra decided to fight [the Canadian Human Rights Commissions] because it was the right thing to do. But he went a step further than most. He set out to defeat the HRCs by exposing their tyranny. Anyone who reads Shakedown: How Our Government is Undermining Democracy in the Name of Human Rights will be convinced that their defeat is essential for the survival of liberty in Canada. We are not yet three months into 2009, but Ezra may well have written the most important public affairs book this year.
