Man, I'm glad I don't live in Canada...

I'm watching Steyn's recent visit to the Canadian tv show "The Agenda with Steve Paikin", and his depressingly fruitless attempts to explain free speech to three Canadian Muslim LAW students of all people and man, I'd be checking the real estate prices in Michigan right now, because you're looking at your future lawyers and judges in this video.

Youtube has them, part's 1-7.

It's very uncomfortable to watch law students from any country or background be so flippant about the rights of free speech, as if the word "Law" itself has been mangled. The idea that you can now sue someone because you're "offended" is pretty freaking stupid.

It'g getting even worse when some of the people who are offended get so offended that they blow up and kill people. That's a problem.


Update: Kathy Shaidle at PajamasMedia has a more in depth analysis of the show, including a reference to the Canadian Human Rights Tribunals 100% conviction rate on hate crime issues.
