“Freedom of speech is an American concept, so I don’t give it any value”

So says Dean Steacy, one of Canada’s Human Rights Commissioners, whose idea of defending human rights is to hollow out and destroy them. This is just one among many gems, and cutting insights, offered by the Canadian poet and essayist David Solway in “The Jihad of the Word” (published yesterday at Pajamas Media). Included are the travails of Ezra Levant and our Mark Steyn — and a plug for Ezra’s important new book, Shakedown: How Our Government Is Undermining Democracy in the Name of Human Rights.

Relatedly, if you were an NR subscriber (and you know you should be), you’d already know that the latest edition features my essay, “Beyond Terrorism,” which deals with the objective of jihadism, namely, sharia — and its infiltration in our society.
