Walrus editor Jonathan Kay quits amid free speech uproar: ‘I have been censoring myself more and more’

Adoption suspected.

“What takes priority,” Kay wrote for the National Post, “the right of artists to extend their imagination to the entire human experience, or the right of historically marginalized communities to protect themselves from possible misrepresentation? Personally, I land on the free speech side.


There has been a raft of apologies over this latest petty outrage.

One thing is certain, it illustrates the general cowardice of our PC chattering class.

Is it any wonder they consider criticism of Islam to be the greatest sin of all?

    I can’t bring myself to sympathize with Mr. Kay — he having ghost-written Justin’s election campaign bio and all. And in recent months he turned Walrus magazine into a federal-financed attack machine against Ezra Levant’s Rebel Media. He’ll have no trouble getting a high-paying job within the elite media establishment. That’s where the big bucks are.

    • That’s pretty much it;)

      Jonathan Kay is like a turd on the bottom of your shoe, everywhere he goes he stinks up the place

    Islam’s supreme belief that it’s their Allah given duty to submit non Muslims and the West’ s PC would rather roll over and die than risk offence culture. A marriage made in Hell that will be the Death of Western Civilization. If we in the West aren’t willing to make a stand and fight for those cherished liberties that are being abused in the name of pluralism then there is no future for the West.

    • Our elites are asses.

      • WalterBannon

        they are not my elites, they are privileged parasites

    Where would we be without Jonathan Kay to lead the march for Truth and Freedom?

    If he’s this scared of a bunch of hysterical Canadian SJWs, imagine how terrified he must be of Islam.

      Sickening how quickly these journalists fold in the face of SJW outrage. If he stood by his values, he’d tell them to shove it and fight being fired for standing up for free speech. (Compare Jonathan Kay with Jordan Peterson, for example.)

    Seriously. You can only pull this stupid sh*t on white people.

    This quote from yesterday’s post…

    Indeed, it is these mobbings that encourage the idea that free speech is under siege from a systematic program of left wing censorship. On both sides, it is fear and suspicion that is driving the social media rage.

    See.. enlightened reader, free speech isn’t under attack from a systematic program of left censorship, it’s just an idea .. an idea encouraged by mobbings. If only the mobbings would stop, all would be fine and it’d be business as usual. And there’s two sides.. both to blame, equal partners and all. I hope it’s all cleared up now.

    He’s such a fence sitting careerist stooge. He should marry Michael Coren.

      he should sit in his garage with the engine running and the doors all closed tight
