I happen to think steyn is a racist and levant is seriously anti-muslim, but expressing their opinions isn't remotely a human rights violation against some pansy assed citizen. (it only takes one complaint to get drawn into this absurd "legal" quagmire).
It is a commission which is empowered by the government and can mete out penalties, so it's a legal prosecution. But at least you agree that it was wrong.
