‘Undermining Our Culture’

May 10, 2017

“Had to post this. I think disappointed is an understatement. This will be the first year that we don’t get gifts crafted with love from our kids, and since we only have one little one now, it makes it all that much worse. I don’t understand why we, as Canadians, need to give up our traditions that have been passed through generations. I welcome all races and ethnicities, but forcing us to give up things that are important to us as Canadians is crap. And it doesn’t even have anything to do with religion!

“A school in Canada has cancelled Mother’s Day, sending students home with a note to explain why. The note, which was given to Grade One and Two students at Albert McMahon Elementary School, Mission, British Columbia, revealed the school body made a decision to not celebrate Mother’s or Father’s Day this year.

The decision was made in July {by the totalitarian-minded city council} as part of its ‘Renewable City Strategy’. The plan calls for a ban of natural gas, meaning no new buildings can use it and old buildings must be retrofitted to use renewable energy.

{This goes in the exact opposite direction of the provincial government, which is investing in massive natural gas expansion. Taxpayers, of course, are paying for both. It once again raises the question of whether having more than one level of elected government only makes matters worse…} (more…)

‘Internet Warrior Shutting Down Free Speech’

August 24, 2016

“He wishes more people would dox hateful commenters. I asked how he would feel if he got doxxed—if other internet vigilantes can be trusted not to abuse their reach. He responded he has nothing to hide. I went to take his photo for this story, and he left the room. He returned with a bandana to cover his face.”

“All I ever want from people is to simply stop oppressing others,” Danny wrote over IM chat before I met him in person. “With belief, with privilege, or even just with online words. I want white males to accept the yoke of our horrible, terrifying track record in history.”

“The man who leaks others’ personal information did not want to be identified. As part of an agreement for an interview, I can confirm he is “from the Prairies” and “holds a lofty position at a large IT company.” In his spare time, he ‘doxxes’ people he believes are bigots. (more…)

“A dissident faction of Mexico’s teachers’ union {the CNTE} is under fire for publicly humiliating teachers and administrators who defied its strike.

“Several school workers were seized in the southern town of Comitan on Tuesday. They were marched barefoot through town with signs hanging around their necks saying they were
