Revenge is a Dish Best Served Chilled?
So what's Ezra up to now? Glad you asked. He and a certain Richard Warman are, hmmm, involved in certain legal disputes:
In an affidavit supporting his request for disclosure, Mr. Levant said Mr. Warman's "focus on my political views, and [his] express concern for the political reputation of non-parties to this lawsuit, such as Mr. Warman's former employer, the [Canadian Human Rights Commission], demonstrates my contention that his lawsuit is indeed a 'SLAPP' suit -- Strategic Litigation Against Public Participation -- designed to 'chill' public discussion of these issues."
Mr. Levant's writing, including the 2009 book Shakedown, has focused on the controversies of human rights law, especially Section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act, which prohibits online messages that are "likely to expose" identifiable groups to "hatred or contempt."
Ezra comments briefly here.

If the expression "get a room!" ever applied to any two people, it would be Levant and Warman. May they enjoy the pleasure of fucking with each other for many many years to come.

In the Roman Coliseum perhaps. One gets a thumbs up.

Ah yes! I see you haven't changed. Blaming the victim again. Why are you so hostile against Free
Speech and Freedom of Expression?
Go Ezra! Fight the oppressive HRC!

Hard to feel sorry for Levant AT ALL (and even more difficult to sympathize with the worm Warman), notwithstanding his great fight against the HRCs.
Libel/slander/defamation law is the ANTITHESIS of Free Speech.
Here is a very interesting and illuminating perspective: http://www.spiked-online.com/index.php/site/printable/8323/

Yes JC you are quite right and I as one who has been in the past sued for defamation by none other than Ezra himself know to well of his gross hypocrisy.
The fact that he introducing Anne Coulter is a bit much indeed. As Ezra certainly does not truly believe in what she believes at all.
Suing me for $100,000 for a simple letter to the Editor and then parading around for free speech is disgusting!!
So many are fooled by his mantra.
