Freedom of speech: dissected
Much talk in the Twitter universe today about Lawrence Martin's column in The Globe and Mail. Appropriately, he reminds us that freedom of speech didn't just become an issue this week in Ottawa. He calls it "muzzletown" and wonders, like many of us, why so many people have been willing to put up with it. But I'm also wondering why the freedom-of-speech advocates haven't picked up on Coulter's assertion that MPs were "banned" from attending her U of O appearance. Who was banned? Who issued the order? Any guesses? It leads one to wonder whether one person's muzzle is another person's "caucus discipline." Is Coulter writing any letters to protest that infringement on expression or rights of assembly?
