‘More U.K. Insanity’

May 29, 2017

“The children’s book, “Talking About Terrorism”, published weeks before the Manchester Arena atrocity, describes the indiscriminate mass murder of innocent members of the public as a

“type of war”.

“It tells primary age children that terrorists kill people because they believe they are being treated

“unfairly and not shown respect”.

“It gives examples of “terrorists” whose ideas then turn out to be right:  (more…)

‘Government Aiding Hard Drug Dealers’

May 15, 2017

‘Vancouver’s drug strategy has been a disaster. Be very wary of emulating it’: 

“Last week, Edmonton city hall voted 10-1 in favour of building not just one “safe consumption” site for drugs, but four of them — all within walking distance of one another in one of the city’s lowest-income urban districts.

“The decision was made despite the fact that more than 80% of Edmonton’s fentanyl-related overdoses are occurring in the suburbs — well beyond the reach of the new facilities. The move also ignores fervent pleas from locals, who claim that approving four drug consumption sites will be a death sentence for their already-chaotic and drug-ridden neighbourhood.

“And honestly, it’s hard to see how the locals are wrong. While the strategy of harm reduction can indeed save the lives of addicts in the short term, it can destroy communities if used in isolation.

“These unhappy results can be seen a province away. Vancouver is into its second decade of dealing with an injected-drug crisis. The city has been concentrating more and more services in its Downtown Eastside. The result? Everything seems to be getting worse (more…)

‘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! You can’t celebrate your Mom and Dad?”

— Roy Glebe

“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 note explained that the decision had been made in a bid to ensure that all students, including those without traditional nuclear families, felt ‘positive’ about their own family arrangements, whatever they may entail. (more…)

‘More Left-wing Lunacy’

April 30, 2017

“Two conservative journalists have sparked outcry on social media by making what some {fanatics} have interpreted as a ‘white supremacist’ hand symbol at a recent visit to the White House.

{It’s been the symbol for ‘O.K.’ for decades. Now, it has been ‘deconstructed’ and ‘re-interpreted’ by university fools…}

‘More Fascist-Left Speech Repression’

April 14, 2017

“The violence and brutalization of political opponents is a new phenomenon in American politics, but it is becoming increasingly common, and it has a historical antecedent: the Nazi ‘Brownshirts’. In “The Coming of the Third Reich”, historian Richard J. Evans explains how, in the early days of National Socialist Germany, Stormtroopers (Brownshirts)

“organized campaigns against unwanted professors in the local newspapers [and] staged mass disruptions of their lectures.”

“To express dissent from Nazi positions became a matter of taking one’s life into one’s hands. The idea of people of opposing viewpoints airing their disagreements in a civil and mutually respectful manner was gone. One was a Nazi, or one was silent (and fearful).

“That is just the kind of public arena that the Left has been trying to bring to the United States for years — particularly on college campuses. (more…)

‘Tightening the Noose’

March 11, 2017

“The European Parliament has introduced a new procedural rule, which allows for the chair of a debate to interrupt the live broadcasting of a speaking MEP

“in the case of defamatory, racist or xenophobic language or behavior by a Member”.

“Furthermore, the President of the European Parliament may even

“decide to delete from the audiovisual record of the proceedings those parts of a speech by a Member that contain defamatory, racist or xenophobic language”.

No one, however, has bothered to define what constitutes

defamatory, racist or xenophobic language or behavior“.

“I hold that whatever debates may be underway about the targets of Orwell’s dystopian “Nineteen Eighty-Four”, the modern university is the only institution that has taken that noble work for use as a manual.

“For where else are words turned quite upside down, flipped over to stand on their bruised heads and told to dance to the rigorous tunes of fanatics? For it is only on a university campus that simple, basic words are made by violence to take on their exact and opposite meanings: up is down, right is wrong, day is night, and anti-fascism is fascism.

Political protesters like to think that they’re starring in an action movie, with a script that guarantees them both safety and victory over ‘the forces of evil’. Sometimes, however, real life intrudes, After aggressively provoking authorities for weeks, burning vehicles and throwing rocks and bottles at police…:

“A New York woman seriously hurt protesting the Dakota Access oil pipeline faces multiple surgeries and could lose an arm, her father said Tuesday…

‘Hypocrisy and Climate Change’

November 22, 2016

“Why would any working Canadian leave their car at home and crowd onto a bus for the bleak commute through a wintery morning, knowing environmental evangelists think it’s fine to fly 255 Canadians to Morocco for a week in the sun?”
