Leader-Post Is “Controversial”

Controversial is a code word for “racist”. That’s according to multiple tweets by the Leader-Post in Regina, Saskatchewan.

Climate Change Deniers Rally in Regina

A sorry excuse for a rally is under way in Regina today. It’s a grouchy band of malcontents and [muted] racists who share a dislike for science and the Prime Minister.

The cowards deleted their racist post that Meili sarcastically called “brilliant”.

Among the supporters of the corporate ralliers are former Yellow Vest rally attendee Premier Moe, and this Yellow Vest rallier Jason LeBlanc who spoke in Ottawa at the event Scheer and Faith Go|dy spoke at.
LeBlanc says to the NDP “I thought we were friends.” “I’m just a farmer“, yet he’s acting as a mouthpiece for Oil and Gas AKA the SaskParty.

“I am passionate about auctions, but I am more passionate about survival in farming.”
Too bad he’s not passionate about survival of the humans who’d farm, and the climate required to do farming in Saskatchewan.

Who are the people he mentioned there?
Kevin Hursh was a TV agriculture journalist well known in Saskatchewan, and last year he wrote something awful for the newspaper, which I panned.
Krause denies being a climate change denier, but is a darling for their cause because her name is on Deniers’ lips anytime the subject of foreign money for environmental causes comes up.

LeBlanc, from Estevan, also promotes notable Denier Patrick Moore:
“@EcoSenseNow Mar 31
I am not a con man or a special interest, and I don’t take taxpayer’s $. I am a “real scientist” with a real PhD in science. There is zero hard evidence that CO2 is the cause [blah blah blah]”

Now if you want to hear from sensible people, this sums up the ralliers’ situation if they are not actively farming:
D. Bonnycastle:
‏”All this kerfuffle for 4.6 cents. Either they are idiots or they are trying to distract from the unprotested 25 cent raise for the oil companies.”

A journalist asked me if I was going to protest the rally in person, and I haven’t decided yet, probably not. A lot of the people there are feeling their livelihood is being threatened, emboldened by bad political leaders like Moe, and several of them are racists and fascists. I’ve never attended an anti-fascist counter-protest before, and I wouldn’t do so half-assedly.

There happens to be a child-led protest at the Legislature the following morning, at 10am-11am for the Fridays for Future global strike movement. Kids who are fed up with political inaction are striking on Fridays, since schooling won’t matter too much if their world is shattered by climate change disasters in the coming decades.

#CPCracists Leader

About the time that the odious racist Kellie Lietch was contending for the leadership of the CPC with Maxime Bernier and the guy who kept Syrian refugees out of Canada for years to suffer in camps instead, the media dropped the ball. It’s been objectively clear for years now that the Conservative Party of Canada is now a party run by, and in many cases for, racists. Has the Main Stream Media let the average Canadian know that the Official Opposition party promotes hatred against Muslims?

Is the Conservative Party of Canada Racist?

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.

Scheer Shouldn’t Shrug Off Toxic Rebel Association

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:

UPDATE:

Nazis Ruling News Cycle In USA

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.

Greyhound and RCMP Bring #StarlightTours To Manitoba

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.
