Cue "O Fortuna"...
Timed to music, Renegade bursts into furious tirade of profanity and obscenity...
etc. etc. etc.
You get the idea.

This assault on free speech is worldwide. No... not an assault... A blitzkrieg. There are so many attacks in such a short period. The coincidence is uncanny. This is an orchestrated, international offensive against free speech. It is nothing short of pre-emptive war against the citizens of the world. C-11 is merely war against Canadians.
Yet again, it bears repeating:
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
And regarding the fiends behind the scenes that pull the strings, Thomas Jefferson had some good things to say:
If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered... I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies... The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.
And for all those censors and tyrants out there, and to those that support C-11, for them, the Trudeau Salute:
