I am a professor of political science at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario, about a one and a half hour drive from where I live in Toronto. The characterization of the Katz incident by MuzzleWatch as “McCarthyism” is indeed an accurate one. Yet, what Katz and political outfits across the ideological spectrum fail to understand is that McCarthyism cuts both ways. If Katz is a supporter of IAW, why did she not openly extend the right of Zionists to speak at the events? In 13 IAW participating cities in Canada, there was sadly not one pro-Zionist speaker.
Levant’s testimony showed how the guardians of anti-racism, tolerance, and multiculturalism in Canada are also the McCarthyite haters of free expression.
