So it seems Ezra Levant’s Western Standard will boldly go where the ROC’s mainstream media have refused to go (other than editorially) and will print the controversial Danish anti-prophet-Mohammed cartoons in their upcoming issue.
While you’re waiting for your copy to arrive by mail, or searching for your newsstand copy (futilely, at many indie bookstores), I encourage you to (re)read Bill Reynold’s epic, award-winning essay “Crossing the Line”, where he asks:
Is it still okay to make inappropriate comments publicly without fear — things people might not want to hear, but should?
Which is to say, there is a time and place for dissent. Is WS’s move a free speech parley, or simply a Rebel Sell (TM)?
In other news, I’m pretty sure that ad for their libranos T on the main page has a copyright infringment on it (Wear your politics on your sleeve). We always knew the Report/Standard was our separated-at-birth-right-wing-twin, but come on.
