The following incident from Quebec is as bad as any trumped up hate speech case in Britain. The father who objected to Islamic instruction in school for his 8-year-old son was threatened with prosecution by the school board for an ‘Islamophobic’ Facebook post.
GOV (h/t Susan K) He made the remark as a private citizen, not as a public employee, or even a private-sector employee. Just an ordinary dad, exercising what he thought was his right to free speech. To make his persecution even more ironic, the issue was an assignment in which his son was required to draw Mohammed. Where’s the fatwa on the school? Why wasn’t the school firebombed? Why didn’t the teacher have to change her name and go into hiding?
