Meet Achmed The Dead Terrorist



He came up on a blog about Canada's Hate Speech Law.
The subject of Free Speech vs Hate Speech arose on that blog...
Which raised the question, "Would Achmed get busted if he played in Canada?"
The question was posed to Canadians; it didn't get a straight yes/no answer.

So.
To Canadians (and the rest of y'all) would/should Achmed be allowed to do his show in your country?
Or would/should he be forced to appear incognito cool...



...'to avoid being caned'? hole

yep this is Canada with freedom of speech so far.
O.K.

Now, how 'bout Achmed's incognito alter ego...Jacques Merde*?
Would he be O.K. in Quebec? thumbs up
Or would French Canadians find him hateful? scold
dunno

"In December 2007, the Canadian Islamic Congress filed a complaint about hate speech against Maclean's Magazine. The substance of the complaint was thatMaclean's was publishing articles (a column by Mark Steyn) that INSULTED* Muslims. The Congress filed its complaint with the Canadian Human Rights Commission, theBritish Columbia Human Rights Tribunal and the Ontario Human Rights Commission. The Ontario Human Rights Commission ruled that it did not have the jurisdiction to hear the complaint. The British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal dismissed the complaint 10 October 2008. The Canadian Human Rights Commission dismissed the complaint on 26 June 2008."

This would seem to indicate that even if some found Ahmed 'insulting', he wouldn't be busted. He might wish to watch what he says, however. Just sayin'.

Sweden is another matter.
One apparently must be careful not to commit a "Crime Of Opinion"...

wow
