  1. Nobody is worse than R10 when it comes to insults, or as unhinged in general.

  2. Gosh if only he had googled an internet dictionary to look up the word “sedition”, he’d be a free man. According to one uneducated user on this site that’s all he would have needed to win his case.

  3. Seditious Conspirator Stewart Rhodes has been handed an 18 year prison sentence for his role in the January 6 Capitol attack. The judge told him: “You, sir, present an ongoing threat and a peril to this country, to the Republic and the very fabric of our democracy.” Prosecutors had asked for a 25 year sentence, stating that Rhodes had been calling for attacks against the government for over ten years. Despite his conviction, Rhodes gave an interview just four days ago, stating that the government was “coming after those on the political right.” “It’s not going to stop until it’s stopped,” Mr. Rhodes said during the interview, adding that the country needed “regime change.” (Not the brightest thing for him to say four days before his sentencing hearing).

  4. Our society has transformed from manufacturing to information, making a college education a critical pathway to the middle and upper-middle class. And at the heart of the conflict are those who either lack the mental capacity or who lacked the motivation and drive to go to college, and they now resent all things intellectual: They reject climate change because it comes from scientists. They reject vaccines because it comes from medical experts. They embrace myth-spewing religious leaders and political leaders who reinforce their foolishness. They embrace racism because their whiteness is the only thing about them which makes them feel better about themselves.

  5. Twitter wants to talk about the sexy boots of M&MS. We pay politicians to manage the things they are in charge of. They shouldn't only act reactively after public pressure, they should do their jobs.

  6. Big surprise. Well, anyway she gets to decide what is proper to teach children, parents' rights and all that. If I want my high school kid to know about the holocaust she's going to veto that. And let's all remember that flying a rainbow flag is divisive (CdnFox) and no none should interfere with the right to express an opinion (Myata) also Woke is the SAME IDEOLOGY AS NAZIISM (reason10) and Canada's Woke Supreme Court says Free Speech isn't important (I am Groot) Let's put our priorities straight: students should not be exposed to poems that invoke the memory of slavery, and we have Nazi anti-semites in place keeping their eyes out for woke Thought Criminals and their artifacts that can be erased from public consciousness.

  7. This proletarian lump has actually highlighted the problem: dealing with "the" public who is consumed with cartoonish conspiracies like WEF takes cycles away from talking about actual issues.

  8. Well, individual municipalities actually do recruiting in some quarters. Planning for all of these things isn't that difficult but if "the" public glazes over when they're given 15-year warnings (!) of things, and instead puts pressure on their politicians to deal with identity politics (and I'm condemning all sides on that) then we are to blame.

  10. I know I shouldn’t respond to him. He is unhinged, the rhetoric in every post of his is dialled up to 11 on scale of 1 to 10, and he starts way too many threads. Clearly he binges on right wing articles and tv and then rage-posts his reaction in realtime here. He’s the one who should have called himself Deluge. I avoided him for a while but if you walk in the grass often enough, eventually you’ll step in dogshit. Gonna go the ignore route on this guy I think.

  12. The thing is one 'name calling' is not attacking an individual and doesnt cause reputational harm to a person. The other one is. It's not a good decision. It's one thing to say 'i feel that trans people tend to be (derrogatory)." its also one thing to say "i feel that people who think trans people are (Derogatory) tend to be (derogatory). But when you say John Smith of 1234 anywhere ave is a racist bigot and we should all hate him... Well that's another thing. And this kind of decision will cause hatred to build up and that is going to boil over somewhere, i dont' care what the law says. You can't say that only trans people or those 'defending' them have rights and other people don't, or sooner or later the 'ohter people' lose respect for the law and start seeking their remedies outside it. And then the news papers are full of "where is this trans hatred and violence coming from!" (picture of man scratching his head).

  14. Doubt it. The church and its clergy have been intolerant pricks for a lot longer than they've been sensitive and caring. In my mother's time, you could hear a gentle sermon from one church and thundering denunciations and threats of eternal damnation in another. Depends on the mindset of the priest.

  15. Guardian Just because we're in a purportedly free country an opinion like this can be expressed. There's no prejudice against trans people. One may not even know or want to know these details. One is free to identify themselves to a specific gender. One has the right to be safe and to express their identification free of fear, harassment and such. This is clear. One can ask their friends and people they know to identify them as they wish. This is a request, not a right or privilege. One cannot force their view of the world upon others. There's no obligation of the others to accept another individual's view of the world. None. Does not exist. Period. A has the right to say: "xyw". This is not the same as making everybody around say it. No, not the same thing. Why couldn't you figure it out? Specifically it cannot exist where it contradicts objective facts of reality, as in the example. The fact of individual identification does not change physical reality. Maybe this is where the line lies. One can feel and identify. One has the right to be safe. One can ask. One cannot force others to accept their views. As happened so many times in the history of humankind, we just cannot stop. The fight for the right of recognition and safety has come over the top and became the drive to force one particular view on the others. The "right" view, to the exclusion, and suppression of all other views, shutting down opinions and debate. At this point it's left the territory of the right, the oppressed becoming the oppressors. And entrenched, lazy and incompetent bloated governments looking for causes celebre to hide their uselessness and incompetence.

  17. This I believe is where things get complicated. There's a balancing act between an individual's reputation and the right to free speech. Saying someone is 'bigoted' 'hateful' can be seen as honest opinion or fair comment. How can someone prove they're not bigoted? The acts by the B.C. and Ontario governments were designed to enable the courts an easy way to throw out frivolous lawsuits that were intended to limit free speech. The Supreme Court is bound to those acts (laws). Opinion is usually considered not to be defamatory unless it can be proven it's done with malicious intent. Let's also not forget who started the whole charade and launched the lawsuit.

  18. When Pierre Poilievre has been asked the hard questions, he's answered them straightaway, and on camera. All archived for your viewing pleasure. Also, why would Pierre Poilievre lay out his complete election platform so early before a federal election? So Trudeau's puppetmaster(s) have an idea of how to fix the country they've abused so badly? You're above statement is typical for a displaced Liberal who has moved westward. Are you on the dole now?

  22. You completely deflected from all my points because you know I'm correct. Capitalism essentially creates an oligarchy where the 1% have much greater control of the government than the rest of us. If we want more freedom and power for the workers, we need to reduce the enormous economic inequality that we now have.

  26. A persona belief is not a ground for anything. Some believe in UFO, others in alien lizard monsters. A belief that anyone said anything has no merit of its own. The cases of hateful speech are defined in the criminal code. Other than that, in a free society, a citizen can express their opinion on any matter without any fear or restriction. In contrast, this can be a personal attack, insult and all the way up to destruction or reputation and personal, individual damage depending on exact circumstances. In a normal society obviously can be a valid cause for a defamation suit. No you can't accuse a specific individual in a potentially harmful way because you happened to "believe" they said something wrong. The society could descend into a chaos of mutual insults if it was the case (to which state the decision seems to be paving the way). Ask yourself: why did he have to do that? He could show flaws in the argument or belief without resorting to personal attacks. That was a choice, an individual made it and so shouldn't they carry responsibility for the act if it caused real harm to another individual? Exactly. It undermines the perception of justice system as a whole. The folks don't seem to realize that the status as the country's top justices is determined not by the chair, robe or position but by the quality of decisions that have to be explainable to a regular citizen. So how can you explain that Joe cannot libel while Jack please have your way because we here decided that it should make sense from now on?

  34. I can't speak for Michael, but having grown up in a very Church-oriented family (grandfather was a Minister), I'd say you're a bad Christian. A good Christian spreads the Good Word, rather than wasting all of his time being angry and telling everyone how bad they are. If the early missionaries were anything like you, the world would still be pagan.

  40. Explain how Putin is entitled to simply seize the land of a sovereign nation. “Gee, Vlad, want Odessa, too? How about if we throw in Ohio? Want that, too?” Americans learned that just because a state or region votes to secede, it does not get to secede.

  41. If it’s the same thing you should contact those people who have been defamed and get a lawsuit going. Plus I’m talking specifically about allegations of election fraud against companies doing the counting. Failed impeachments mean nothing in a chamber that votes along party lines.

  42. There’s a reason Dominion won zillions. Everyone gripes when they lose games or elections and every Canadian party that does better on the popular vote than on seats becomes, briefly, a supporter of PR, but that’s quite different from a TV network pushing specific, QAnon-style allegations for months about private companies and criminal election fraud that it knows to be without any foundation. That goes beyond stating an opinion.

  46. Just like they regulate regular gambling? The whole point of gambling in general, takes advantage of vulnerable demographics. Especially lotteries. Main reason you see tons of gambling spots and alcohol stores in poor neighborhoods. This is not accidental. People hard up on cash are likelier to having drinking and substance abuse problems, along with gambling addictions. People hard up on cash often won't have the education level to know the futile odds of winning millions. This is advertised heavily in such neighborhoods. What they don't show you are those who buy much more than they can afford as they were heavily marketed to with large winnings. That, or that person at a casino or at home, gambling away money they needed, and committing suicide. News prevents statistics on these to be released.
