Here are excerpts from Mark Steyn’s rebuttal to the complaint launched against him:
This is the nub of Messrs Mithoowani, Awan, Sheikh and Simard’s complaints against Maclean’s: They’re objecting to a Canadian magazine quoting accurately the statements of leading Muslims. And at least two of Canada’s “human rights” commissions, to their shame, have accepted their absurd proposition that accurately quoting leading Muslims is somehow “Islamophobic.”
They and their friends at the Canadian Islamic Congress are seemingly not interested in stimulating debate, but only in shutting it down, by making it more trouble than it’s worth for editors to run articles on one of the central questions of the age: Islam’s relationship with a dying West. In using quasi-judicial coercion to squash debate, they make one of the central points of my argument — that a proportion of Islam is inimical to western traditions of freedom — more eloquently than I ever could.

For shame on the Islamicists. For greater shame on the useful idiots who support them in gutting our democracy.
If these fools who decry “racism” don’t stop their thuggery, they will ignite a backlash where TRUE racism will really start to happen. If you unfairly piss off and punish a large constituency, you can’t expect there not to be reprisals. THIS IS HOW A CIVILIZATION STARTS TO FALL APART.
