The editor of Reza Aslan’s Aslan Media, desperate as ever to silence the truth about Islam and jihad, has mounted the usual campaign of smears and defamation to get me canceled from this, but this time he has failed. This represents two defeats in a row for him, since I spoke at the conference in Sacramento, California from which he tried to get me canceled last weekend. And the Roman Catholic diocese of Sacramento, even after its bishop caved to this libelous campaign, had a booth at the conference — obviously they were fine with my being there after all. That is, of course, as it should be: the idea that fighting for the freedom of speech, the freedom of conscience and equality of rights for all people should be controversial at all shows how far the public discourse has degenerated.
