IN THE NATIONAL POST, Levant wrote that those two Muslim groups hadn’t actually “lost” anything.
At no cost to themselves, wrote Levant, they’d “managed to hijack a secular government agency to prosecute their radical Islamic fatwa against me. The process I was put through was a punishment in itself — and a warning to any other journalists who would defy radical Islam.”
Levant can’t sue the Muslim groups who brought the complaints, and probably wouldn’t have the time or money to do so if he could. Any cash left in his legal defense fund is earmarked to fight a rash of Alberta Law Society complaints against him, brought by some of those “enemies” mentioned earlier.
To top it off, Levant, along with a number of other Canadian conservative bloggers, is also being sued by a former HRC employee whose… investigative techniques they’ve questioned on their sites. (Full disclosure: I am also one of the bloggers being sued.)
Levant credits the blogosphere with generating most of the moral and financial support he’s received. Through his website and other peoples’, as well as YouTube, he has leveraged the Internet in ways other HRC defendants were either too timid or too technologically unsavvy to attempt.
He’s using his newfound notoriety to speak out on behalf of other victims of the “thought police,” who don’t possess either his legal training or his feisty temperament.
It’s perhaps ironic that the “big mouth” that’s frequently gotten Levant into so many scrapes may very well help others avoid them in the future.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
