Moe Promotes Car With Racist Flag

The Premier of Saskatchewan has posted a Confederate flag on his Twitter account.

The Confederate flag has been a hate symbol for longer than recently, although it was popularized in a 1980s TV show that didn’t play up its white-supremacist beginnings. The Premier knows it’s controversial (at best), and is widely accepted as a hate symbol. He chose to promote it anyway.

The Premier has appeared with Yellow Vest racists wearing a reflective green jacket. He clearly doesn’t mind being associated with symbols of racism, and that’s a shameful way for a Saskatchewan Premier to behave and think.

CBC, Change the Debate

CBC has a history of providing a substandard democracy experience for its owners, the Canadian public. Over a decade ago I organized a Regina protest in front of CBC Saskatchewan to object to the broadcasting corporation’s exclusion of Elizabeth May from the leaders debate. Years later she managed to win a seat anyway, and now the Greens are polling nationally about even with the NDP. Excluding her was obviously a partisan choice by the public broadcaster.

Yesterday, people across Canada gathered, including in Regina, to protest CBC’s lack of interest in hosting a Leaders Debate on the climate emergency that Parliament has declared. Several parties have a plan for a Green New Deal, and the public would benefit from hearing a structured debate from the leaders of those parties explain how they envision the Canadian economy will change to meet the pressing need the world is feeling to meet this crisis.

 

You might also want to read these from the past of media corruption.

It’s clear the CBC is willing to put more effort into sensationalizing a murder investigation, than into the most life threatening political issue of our time.

British Political Humour Getting Their Own Trump-basketcase

“We’d be better off picking someone at random and giving them keys to No 10” – John Crace

For Canadians unfamiliar, that’s the British PM’s residence in London.

Caption: “Which candidate was shit, but not shit enough to make a difference?” That’s what it’s like to pick a Conservative in Canada too.

“And it looks like we’re getting our own, small-pond version of [Trump] inside of a fortnight. If only alleged strongman Boris Johnson had found some way of taking care of his shit. Instead, we’ll be picking up the tab. Still, I’m sure every Briton will be honoured by the chance to play their small part in the larger story of this one defective, arrogant man. Or, to put it in classical terms we can all understand, the guy who really puts the anus into Coriolanus.”

I had to look it up:

“Coriolanus is the name given to a Roman general after his military success against various uprisings challenging the government of Rome. Following this success, Coriolanus becomes active in politics and seeks political leadership. His temperament is unsuited for popular leadership and he is quickly deposed, whereupon he aligns himself to set matters straight according to his own will. The alliances he forges along the way result in his ultimate downfall.”

Conservatives Make Asthma Great Again

Canadian Cons desperately want to have MAGA as a campaign slogan because it worked so well for the President. That’s why they want to Make Asthma Great Again, and remove fuel standards. Put lead back into the gas, we need more stupid people from brain damage.

If you know anyone who thinks Scheer is an acceptable human being, you really need to question their judgement. He’s okay with making it harder for kids to breathe in Canada.

Conservative Racist Propaganda Is Beyond The Pale

CPC Racists are at work in Andrew Scheer’s Photoshop department. Why does the CPC still have any support from good Canadians?

Here’s what Doug Ford and Scott Shmoe’s federal party posted today about our Prime Minister:

If we don’t phase out most of the world’s oil and gas sector by 2030, the world’s scientists expect we won’t survive past 2040.

Speaking The Truth

CBC and other media need to recognize the following as true if we’re going to advance as a society. It’s likely to make them, and you, uncomfortable. Growth isn’t automatic and easy.

– Canada has committed genocide against First Nations people.

– Climate change has become a crisis.

– We won’t survive as a civilization this century without significant, yet still possible, changes to our daily lives. That means changes to our economy.

– The American President should not be quoted in headlines because more often than not he’s lying to manipulate people.

– Billionaires have too much power, and far too much money and need to return it to governments for massive investment in social programs like healthcare for Americans without any.
“all these billionaires and this 9 year old has to pay off his schoolmates’ lunch [debt]”

Jeet Heer (Retweeted Waleed Shahid):
“The Koch Brothers understand, and other billionaires do too, that centrist Dems are a crucial line of defense in stopping social democracy.”

– Canadian Conservative politicians have no feasible plan to deal with pollution, and their party leadership opposes real action to reduce pollution on time.

– Conservative Premiers put their federal party’s electoral wishes ahead of national unity and cooperation.

– Regina lacks the transportation infrastructure to meet its 100% renewable by 2050 target.

– The 2050 target is insufficient to meet our objective to survive the climate crisis.
