Sadly, yes. If you haven’t noticed, here’s something that should startle you into realizing every wing of it associates with Nazis, and talks about limiting immigration as a primary platform plank.
Goldy, a Nazi, is recently associated with Rebel Media. Rebel Media’s recent organizer is Andrew Scheer’s organizer now. These aren’t stretches, these are well known facts, and obvious to anyone who watches even a week of Canadian political news.
I feel badly for former Conservative supporters, because man of them are good people, and are not racists. However, past this point in history, continuing to participate in the CPC is to be on the wrong side of history.
This was in response to me, and countless others calling for him to denounce the hate site for its involvement in the Charlottesville Nazi attack.
Meanwhile one of the more ‘mainstream’ defenders and purveyors of Islamophobia writes this:
confront the intolerant and authoritarian forces of political Islam.
While the ISIS caliphate in Mosul is falling, a more domesticated form of Islamism is tragically taking root in countries like Turkey, Indonesia and even regions of the Philippines.
When glimmers of this agenda crop up in Europe and North America, politicians and the chattering classes do everything to accommodate its bigotry and little to denounce it.
The phonies and fakers. The scam artists and hustlers. The scumbags and racists.
If there’s a void, they’ll move to fill it.
Listen to him, using a Nazi rally and subsequent attack that killed and injured people, as an opportunity to make people more scared of Muslims. I guess he knows a thing or two about filling a void.
Speaking of voids, here’s a website to avoid:
The “loons” on the right wing really stuck their foot in their mouths this week, so better balance things out so they don’t seem so violent and crazy by bringing up some possibly comparable event from years ago on the left wing. Main stream media continually proves it’s unwilling to be a reasonable adjudicator of the truth. Simply condemn the violent and idiotic rhetoric of the Conservatives, and if you need context, please find a better analogy.
That was my response to the Leader-Post’s Columnist Murray Mandryk’s “Left or right, wingnuts unwelcome” #BothSides column last year. I saw it as a tepid defense of Rebel and Conservative Party wingnuts, by saying “What About” the radical left wing?
His comments on Twitter in the past days have been far more blunt as it’s become mainstream to call The Rebel out for its naked hatred.
Do you remember the Starlight Tours? Now you don’t have to be drunk to experience this police mistreatment, only be a First Nations person who is unwell.
A shameful story of racism out of Manitoba today. This is one of the companies the SaskParty is looking toward to offer replacement bus service due to the Saskatchewan Transportation Company (STC) closure and sell-off happening in 2 days!
Spence said he pleaded with the police for help, asking if there was a way to get a ride or find some place to get away from the cold.
“They said there was nothing around here. I said, ‘What should I do?’ They said, ‘Your best bet is to start walking,’” Spence recalls.
Greyhound said in its defence:
“After further investigation, it appears the customer may not have been intoxicated and may have been experiencing a non-alcohol related issue.”
What the hell do they mean by “a non-alcohol related issue.”?
“Spence says at one point he was being followed by a pack of dogs.
“I just kept calm, and kept walking and eventually the dogs left me alone,” he said.”
““They should compensate me. I was scared for my life,” he said.”
This man was thrown off the bus, literally to wild dogs. Greyhound should be giving this man free bus rides for life, for this horrible mistreatment.
A man with a group of people went looking to injure First Nations people, from their truck.
A hospital won’t put the dying woman onto organ donor lists to get replacement organs for ones damaged in the attack, because she’s had alcohol in the last half year.
Hate-crimes everywhere you look in Northern Ontario. Can something not be done besides prepare for the funeral?
Now, it may be Trump’s turn to make everything worse. I’m not planning on blogging about Trump very much, however. The man gets far too much attention, and that’s one of the things that brought him to power in the United States. While Harper was wrecking Canada, I couldn’t help but write about his lying, cheating, and bad governance. I think I can help writing about Trump. Today is an exception. Sorry.
Many of his supporters are fully delusional. The example below says “Only dopes use snopes,” referring to the meme/fact-checking website with an excellent reputation for explaining the root of misinformation circulating online. To attack Snopes, Stefan cites Breitbart, a racist “news” site which backs Trump.
What brought up this shameful incident again?
Canada is finally putting a woman on the front of a bank note (other than the Queen, of course). The first will be Viola Desmond, who will replace Sir John A. MacDonald.
“Asked by one young student why more women couldn’t have been represented on money, Morneau said it was important to pick just one single woman so their story will be remembered, and serve as an inspiration to all.”
An excellent article written earlier this year explains why that’s a bit of a silly answer. There’s bigger fish to fry though, and more women should appear on currency in the coming years.
