Today only: Mark Steyn fundraiser for the Freedom Five

For those of you interested in picking up some Mark Steyn memorabilia (to remember the era when his writing was still legal in this country), now's your chance to do so and send all profits from the sale to support the Freedom five:
50 per cent of the purchase price of America Alone - that's to say, our entire profit - will be donated to the legal defense fund for Ezra and co. That's 50 per cent of the purchase price of America Alone not just in the new paperback edition, but also of the hardback, the CD, the audio cassette and the MP3 version. Better yet, we'll also pass on to our Internet comrades 50 per cent of the purchase price of the America Alone Anniversary Special: you'll get America Alone plus The Face Of The Tiger and the Viva Steyn! T-shirt at one low price, and Ezra, Kate, Kathy and Free Dominion will get half the proceeds.

We're doing this because Ezra and co are fighting to keep America Alone available to Canadian readers, so the fate of my book and the Freedom Five are already yoked together. But Warman Wednesday doesn't stop there: We'll also donate 50 per cent of the proceeds from all the other books we sell today, even Broadway Babies Say Goodnight, which even the Ontario Human Rights Commission has yet to find "flagrantly Islamophobic". And we'll chip in 50 per cent of the proceeds from our T-shirt and mug sales and all the rest. Whatever you buy between now and midnight, half the price goes to keep dissident opinion in the deranged Dominion from being put out of business by the Pieman and his legal muscle. Take a look around, see what tickles your fancy, and do your bit for free speech in a country which could use a lot more of it.

In the words of the Liberty in Canada website:
Canada used to be a free country, perhaps the freest in the world. There is a Canadian tradition of individual liberty which now seems generally ignored. Our traditional liberties have been gradually eroded up to the point where scarcely a day passes without news stories reminding us that what was allowed a few decades ago, sometimes only a few years ago, is now regulated if not criminally prohibited. This is true as much of so-called “social” liberties as it is of economic freedoms.

A totalitarian nanny state versus a totalitarian theocratic state. Hmmm... tough choice.
