Warren Kinsella came on the show Wednesday and defended section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act. That’s the hurt feelings on the internet provision. You can watch the post here and see if you agree with Kinsella or me.
But I have to wonder why Kinsella supports the hurt feelings on the internet provision because he seems to take joy in throwing around accusations. He’s called plenty of conservative commentators and bloggers racists and Nazis simply because he disagrees with their politics.
Now he’s posted about a Jewish group and a Christian group joining together to bring Glenn Beck to Toronto. Kinsella calls Beck an anti-Semite, a rather slanderous claim, and questions the sanity of the folks at Uptown Chabad and International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (Canada). To prove Beck is an anti-Semite with a real hate on for Jews, Kinsella links to a number of left-wing websites that hate Beck.
Now I don’t know if Kinsella has ever watched Beck or listened to his radio program but one thing that no one who has listened to him could say is that Beck is an anti-Semite. I had lunch recently with two rabbis who couldn’t say enough good things about Beck.
Glenn Beck is a man who has stood with and for Israel more than anyone lately.
Warren my friend, you are out to lunch on this.
I have to say, it is amazing that calling people Nazis and anti-Semites hasn’t landed any section 13 complaints. Although as we know, that section is on hold due to a prior ruling that it is unconstitutional and is being challenged in court.
