Mark Steyn has embarked on a legal counter-attack on a rather loathsome man who had the opportunity to watch and admire Steyn as he eviscerated the muslim despoilers of truth and freedom of speech in Canada who brought suit against him there for speaking no less than the truth about islam. This noted academic unquestionably knew what he was dealing with when he decided to sue Steyn for attacking his pet political theory but went ahead anyway and filed a lawsuit against Steyn and entities that used to matter when it came time to stand up and be numbered with Truth, Justice and the American Way of life. In other words, the idiot knew he was smearing himself in BBQ sauce prior to throwing himself into a pool filled with piranha and went ahead and did it anyway.
I enjoyed watching Steyn wage a war against seventh century muslim thugs and their government enablers in Canada. Canada had sunk to such a low estate I did not think that he would prevail. I don't know how anybody with an academic bent of mind could rationalize filing a law suit against the man who prevailed in the kangaroo courts of Canada.
"He either fears his fate too much,
Or his desserts are small,
Who dares not put it to the touch,
To win or lose it all."
Journals and journalists carry libel insurance as a matter of routine. Do you suppose professors at Penn State are in the habit of carrying any kind of legal insurance to pay $10 million dollar legal judgements against them? Yeah, me neither.
