"... under investigation for truthful posts..."

Islamic law forbids criticism of Islam, Quran, Muhammad. If they cannot be criticized in the US, we are in effect accepting Islamic law as overriding the freedom of speech. This would establish Muslims as a protected class and prevent honest discussion of how Islamic jihadists use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and supremacism.

What terrible spell is the West living under.? There is no blasphemy in a free society. And yet one Muslim complains, and an entire career is destroyed.

A spokesman for the board said it was aware of concerns raised by a community member about public postings on a Facebook page under the name Ghada Sadaka. Sadaka is identified as a principal in the York board on the page.

What terrible spell is the West living under.? There is no blasphemy in a free society. And yet one Muslim complains, and an entire career is destroyed.
Apparently an Ontario, Canada school principal [Ghada Sadaka.] criticizing Muslims in Europe for not standing up against the violence done in the name of their religion, and expressing an opinion that burkas should be permitted in France when bikinis are permitted in Saudi Arabia, is enough to cause a public furor and calls for her termination.

Islam and Islamic government are a unique threat to free speech and liberty. Freedom of speech is the foundation of a free society. Without it, a tyrant can wreak havoc unopposed, while his opponents are silenced.

Putting up with being offended is essential in a pluralistic society in which people differ on basic truths. If a group will not bear being offended without resorting to violence, that group will rule unopposed while everyone else lives in fear, while other groups curtail their activities to appease the violent group. This results in the violent group being able to tyrannize the others. [Full]

This is how close we are to allowing ... ALLOWING ... the nullification of our  First Amendment rights (what's left of them) in this country.  It is, IMO, the only issue of critcal importance facing voters in this year's presidential election.

Firstly, any school faculty caught posting on Facebook needs to be fired. Letting the monkeys run the zoo sets a bad example for the little dopes.

The other thing is Canada — a monarchal province run by a Leftist ministry. There are no civil rights. It is not a "free society" in any way. Just stay drunk, shut up, and die.

Also, Ontario is the Maryland of Canada.

Kagan - pro sharia? No surprise from a Harvard academic who never worked in the real world..
The Never Trump people will guarantee us four or five more Kagans for the next 25 years. Ain't that a happy thought?

The government cannot just legislate free speech out of existence. It has to be done a little at a time. Precedent has to be set and then it can be chipped away a little piece at a time. Eventually free speech will be eradicated. "The issue is not the issue, the issue is the revolution."
