And it is not just me. Has any journalist followed up his theory and written another book, calling for abolition of HRC? Or has any journalist written a book refuting what he says? I doubt it. Sure the press may have reported the book when he wrote it, but after that it has mostly been ignored.
The reason? Levant's reputation as a right wing extremist.
This is what irks me about your position:
Levant's beliefs, every one of them, even the radical ones he held as a young man, are perfectly legitimate. They are within the realm of normal, every day political discourse. Levant is, as I have said before, a democrat, a good citizen..........he contributes to society in positive ways, and stays within the limits of law and convention.
Yet you condemn him, refuse to carry on an intellectual exploration of his persecution by the government, simply because he disagrees with you.
That is arrogance in the Nth degree.
Not only is it arrogant, it is intolerance.
And it is ignorant..........it reveals a lack of intellectual depth, to be polite.
Exactly what I would expect from a lifetime Liberal.
But, you see, I've read Pierre Trudeau, and even agree with him on some points.........
I'm a right wing extremist, by your definition.....why do you read me??????
Is my campaign against Holocaust deniers suspect because I am a right wing extremist?
it is EXACTLY the same thing.......
