A Muslim in Canada decided to put ‘free speech’ to the test in the aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo shootings by joking about 9/11 and the Holocaust on Twitter. He is now the subject of a police investigation.

Hot dog seller Jerry Reddick took to the social media network yesterday to experiment with how far he could take freedom of expression, writing, “Let’s test just how free freedom of speech is when it’s not Muslims being disrespected.”

What followed was a series of tweets which were undoubtedly offensive but for many wouldn’t be construed as any more odious than material published by Charlie Hebdo.

They say the best cooked Jews can be found in Poland and Germany where the ovens are made from the best clay.#Freedomofspeech?

Hitler asked his people, "How do you like your Jews"? Well done with a bagel and a kosher pickle. Freedom of speech goes both ways #Muhammad

If I made a cartoon about Hitler and some Jews going into a oven; would it be accepted like the cartoon of Muhammad as free speech?

Within hours of sending out the tweets, Reddick was reported to Halifax police and is now under investigation by authorities.

“I know you didn’t think freedom to insult worked both ways,” wrote Reddick, adding, “My point about free speech being limited was made loud and clear!”

Reddick’s free speech experiment seems to confirm that making offensive jokes about Muslims is acceptable under the banner of free speech, but insulting Jews or victims of terror attacks or crimes against humanity is not.

Did Reddick not get the memo? Jews are God's CHOSEN people. I thought this was common knowledge. God has his favorites and is a racialist.
this guy is going to get audited by revenue canada every year for the rest of his life now
they will up the # of health inspections for his hot dog stand as well.

they have a lot of ways to get you without even targeting you directly for free speech.
Glenn Greenwald reports:

Forty-eight hours after hosting a massive march under the banner of free expression, France opened a criminal investigation of a controversial French comedian for a Facebook post he wrote about the Charlie Hebdo attack, and then this morning, arrested him for that post on charges of “defending terrorism.” The comedian, Dieudonné (above), previously sought elective office in France on what he called an “anti-Zionist” platform, has had his show banned by numerous government officials in cities throughout France, and has been criminally prosecuted several times before for expressing ideas banned in that country.

The apparently criminal viewpoint he posted on Facebook declared: “Tonight, as far as I’m concerned, I feel like Charlie Coulibaly.” Investigators concluded that this was intended to mock the “Je Suis Charlie” slogan and express support for the perpetrator of the Paris supermarket killings (whose last name was “Coulibaly”). Expressing that opinion is evidently a crime in the Republic of Liberté, which prides itself on a line of 20th Century intellectuals – from Sartre and Genet to Foucault and Derrida – whose hallmark was leaving no orthodoxy or convention unmolested, no matter how sacred.
Glenn Greenwald ON POINT. wow:

Quote:The vast bulk of the stirring “free speech” tributes over the last week have been little more than an attempt to protect and venerate speech that degrades disfavored groups while rendering off-limits speech that does the same to favored groups, all deceitfully masquerading as lofty principles of liberty. In response to my article containing anti-Jewish cartoons on Monday - which I posted to demonstrate the utter selectivity and inauthenticity of this newfound adoration of offensive speech - I was subjected to endless contortions justifying why anti-Muslim speech is perfectly great and noble while anti-Jewish speech is hideously offensive and evil (the most frequently invoked distinction – “Jews are a race/ethnicity while Muslims aren’t” – would come as a huge surprise to the world’s Asian, black, Latino and white Jews, as well as to those who identify as “Muslim” as part of their cultural identity even though they don’t pray five times a day). As always: it’s free speech if it involves ideas I like or attacks groups I dislike, but it’s something different when I’m the one who is offended.
This is why I am misanthropist, groups of people can be tribal insecure assholes

That's probably a violation of Canada's goofy fair speech laws, as far as that goes. Jewish and gay groups are protected from speech in Canada.

Not sure how this is related to speech issues in France though.

*he might also prefer to try his 'free speech' luck in a Muslim country too, you know, just to find out where it takes him!
so now the students at the campus he's selling hot dogs at is calling for a boycott of him. I guess he made his point.

Fair play to this man. Also, sad world we live in.

Good point.

Let's be honest, though: Jews are a race/ethnicity, in addition to a religion. Jews could be best described as a nation, and, as in most nations, some of its inhabitants are treated less equal.

I can guess which students.

Apparently my suspicion was wrong. Nonetheless, they might as well be related as they speak the same language:

“I’m not Jewish but I’m offended when I read things like that.”
