  1. An interesting combination of articles written by the Kays today. Not a coincidence, I'm guessing. First, this one from Jonathan Kay mentioning how ridiculous our country has gotten over the mostly false allegations of 'genocide' against natives. The Left in Canada has embraced this story to such a degree it's become a religion. Anyone daring to contradict it is a blasphemer and guilty of 'denialism'. In many countries, such as Poland, Russia, and Turkey, it is considered bad manners (or even a criminal act) to speak candidly of such nations’ real historical sins. But in Canada, the officially sanctioned fictionalization of history now runs in the opposite direction—toward apocalyptic self-incrimination. Even as hundreds of thousands of immigrants and refugees flock to Canada every year, we are required to embrace the lurid conceit that our country may be described in the same moral breath as (actual) genocidal states such as Nazi Germany and 1994-era Rwanda. A group of scholars even tried to get Canada prosecuted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for crimes against humanity (with predictable results) Welcome to Canada the nation of genocidaires And then the second item, by Barbara Kay, details the attacks on a teacher for daring to contradict the prevailing 'wisdom', despite his remarks being brief and truthful. Here a school board is firing a teacher for telling his students, who were upset at the thought of all those children being 'murdered and tortured', that in fact, they mostly died of diseases like tuberculosis. Which is absolutely true, but apparently truth is not what Canadian schools are interested in teaching these days. In her above-mentioned report, Radomski concluded that, “regardless of Mr. McMurtry’s intent,” his expressed opinion that the deaths were due to disease was “inflammatory, inappropriate, insensitive and contrary to the district’s message of condolences and reconciliation.” Indeed, she found it inculpating that, “He left students with the impression some or all of the deaths could be contributed (sic) to ‘natural causes’ and that the deaths could not be called murder.” Her finding, therefore, was that McMurtry was guilty of “extremely serious professional misconduct.” Most unjustly. https://12ft.io/proxy?q=https%3A%2F%2Fnationalpost.com%2Fopinion%2Fas-this-b-c-teacher-found-out-even-speaking-the-truth-in-class-is-enough-to-get-an-educator-cancelled

  7. So, once you've gotten your wish and vax passports have gotten rid of unvaccinated people in society, and covid STILL is circulating (because we know it will).......what's your next move, maniacs? Get rid of those who don't want jab #3? And down the inevitable line, what will you do with those who finally say "Enough!" around jabs #5 or 6? Get rid of them, too? Do you not understand that this is not about health, it's about obedience?

  10. "White nationalist rage and threats of violence, up to and including civil war. And Republicans are seemingly happy to either sit back and watch it happen or, in many cases, to add fuel to the already out-of-control right wing terrorist fire burning in America." ... Nationalists are now the #1 domestic terrorist threat in America. You've all read what the Nationalists on this forum have threatened. The internet has b come their sounding board, its become these domestic terrorists vehicle for spreading their rage. "Civil War was trending on Twitter with people wondering if it will happen. It has already begun…. except for the shooting,” influencer Juanita Broaddrick declared on Truth Social, which Trump established after twitter banned him. Influencer Lydia Shaffer, who names herself ‘Conservative Barbie,’ posted: “Civil war has been declared,’” the center’s study said." The white house and the DOJ have set up specific units to monitor and disrupt these domestic terrorists, focusing on individuals and small cells. These moronic Nationalist fools are setting to themselves up for a hard fall. Because when you're foolish enough to push America, America pushes back https://www.google.com/url?q=https://www.peoplesworld.org/article/republicans-join-in-with-white-nationalist-attacks-and-civil-war-threats/&sa=U&ved=2ahUKEwiYmbWa9s77AhUVEEQIHY1JAk8QFnoECAsQAg&usg=AOvVaw0chPSlwTj7H8oqcFFyBoiE

  11. I know i have seen the article posted by someone else, i don't mean to steal your thunder i just thought it could use its own topic of discussion. Today as they the committee was reviewing amendments, for the handgun ban bill. they conservative make a brutal discovery. Catching the liberal/ NDP is an act of deception and lies. but first i want to dial it back, a bit first. i remember a discussion i had on here about what was to be included in the original "assault gun ban" and the discussion revolved around what that included, rumors had it it included airsoft, replicate guns, pellet guns and BB guns, there was many articles out there about how large this airsoft industry was, so the liberals/ NDP back tracked on these few look a likes, the liberals are getting very good at this deception, today i found out that those were included in the amendments and are now part of the ban. if it looks like, feels like smells like a real military weapon it is gone, banned, history. skippin forward, today the committee was looking at all the proposed amendment when they came upon an Amendment G4 , which goes on to state all semi-automatic weapons that have the ability to have a magazine attached are now classified as Banned, this includes shot guns, bolt action rifles, .22 cal bolt actions, thousands of different types, that's not all, becasue it is an amendment it cannot have any Finacial means attached to it, meaning NO buy back is planned, just that they are going to be illegal hand them in thank you very much. The liberals promised they would not attack Hunters or their tools in any way, and here we sit, with thousands of new rifles attached to the "handgun bill". and what is really scary this amendment was backed by liberals / NDP/and Block. most of these banned weapons don't even look like anything the military has, they are banned becasue most are magazine feed, or could be modified to hold more than 5 rounds, or they are semi autos...like duck guns, or deer hunting rifles. It has nothing to do with safety and more about division. I wonder why they have to resort to deceiving the nation into believing this huge lie of keeping Canadians safer. And we wonder why Canadians have little faith in our experts who have been bought and paid for by the government to promote another boondoggle like this one. instead of pouring resources into preventing criminal activities, we as a nation like to punish ourselves by sticking it to law bidding gun owners. the point is that while nobody really cares about a few gun owners, but this could be about any personal property we own, and how easy it is for the government to take it away, with or without compensation. you have no property rights, And it is already happening in some cities as they ban fossil fuel powered tools like lawn mowers, leaf blowers chain saws etc.. Canadians will continue to stick their heads up their asses until someone slaps their and says you're going to feel some slight discomfort for a few seconds... Anyways there is some good news Alberta has already told Justin none of this is going to happen in Alberta, they would not use RCMP to confiscate or managed this gun grab and have joined the legal case against the feds to challenge if this is legal. in the first-place rumor has it Saskatchewan is also joining the fight. I am so done with this liberal / NDP/ leftist movement we need an election... and on this front there are rumors, that the liberals might be preparing for a spring election... It's coming from the conservatives, but i can't imagine why, it makes no sense to me, they have nothing to gain. unless they are cutting ties with the NDP maybe...anyways one can hope...

  12. I agree with Eyeball here the commission is not about who is at fault, but there should be something done on this side of the equation. although there was a lot of fingers pointing on who screwed up and who did not, including from the PM. The commission was about did the government meet all the requirements to use the EMA. And examine all the resons why it was needed. We all knew the outcome before day one of the commission, nobody is going to lose their jobs, or any punishment be dealt out, Liberal government will come out of this as always, smelling like shitty roses, we would have wasted countless millions on a commission we did not really need. What it will do is set precedence for the next government, the EMA will be much easier to use, knowing beforehand the consequences of using it in the first place. The government did not even meet the definition of what is required by the federal government's official definition and policy laid out already, instead they used CSIS definition as it was less descriptive, easier to manipulate, maybe those loopholes can be closed. One has to ask how many other examples are their out there with these loopholes.

  15. Of course the Covid jab isn’t necessary for kids. Omicron is a relatively mild illness for kids. Of course masking is another silly short term protection, as now kids have little immunity to multiple contagious illnesses. Are we going to spend billions on putting masks on people every flu season, hampering their social connections and turning them into paranoid freaks? Probably. Covid vaccines for kids are pushed at this point because government bought them.

  16. Canadians are suckers who accept high taxes, including carbon taxes, that fail to reduce greenhouse gasses. It’s that simple. I’m currently visiting a U.S. state with no state sales tax. US citizen wages have grown at a higher rate than Canadian wages and they are taxed far less with better results for emissions. Nevertheless the Canadian government continues to fleece citizens to pay for stupid projects. The HST is another way that Canadians are mistreated. The rational for it was to throw a massive consumption tax at citizens to keep exports cheap. Basically foreigners can get Canadian goods more cheaply than Canadians. The tax burden in Canada has to be reduced substantially, but it won’t happen because Canadians have been taught that high taxes give them good services such as our failed healthcare system.

  17. As usual, you've confidentially stated as fact the exact opposite of reality. Lol Democrats, as a group, are substantially better educated than Republicans. A college degree is now becoming a significant predictor is party affiliation. And the gap is even greater among people with graduate degrees. Republicans are increasingly becoming the party of white people without a college education--particularly men. Those are facts. As for what's driving those trends, I believe it's the erosion of white- and male privilege. For most of the history of this country being white and male was a leg up within any given social strata. Whether factories and farming or banking and business, white men were more likely to be hired, more likely to be promoted and to earn higher wages then minorities and women. All else being equal, white men could get ahead without trying as hard. Now though, as the playing field begins to level a bit, that privelege isn't what it used to be. They have to actually compete with women and minorities. And those without education are the least prepared to compete. They see it as a loss, this erosion of privelege -- and it truthfully is. Losing white, male privelege makes life harder for that demographic. It doesn't matter whether the privelege is right or wrong, they still feel the loss, and they'll fight it. So of course they'll turn away from the party that is more aligned to equality and embrace the party that works to keep women and minorities "in their place."

  18. I agree with a lot of what you say except the part about the extreme right in the conservative movement. These days, being pro-life can be considered extremist when it is not. I think of the Chretien/Martin era when they were very aggressive in trying to balance the budget, and they were successful. Many of us didn't like how they did it at the time, but it did work. Currently, any Conservative politician that would propose these same kinds of measures would immediately be labeled a right-wing extremist People and the MSM have always been far more forgiving to the Liberals than they would to the Conservatives, even when both governments are enacting virtually identical policies. Liberal energy policy drives me nuts. The same can be said for the majority of democratic leaders world-wide. They are moving way too fast without a reliable alternative in place. Yes to more hybrids, yes to nuclear powered container ships. Yes to more nuclear energy. I think it makes more sense to adapt to the climate than to squander trillions while China and India sit back and laugh. John Robson had a good article years ago suggesting that Conservatives might have more success if they actually were more conservative and not emulating the Liberals.

  19. Back in the day, we had our CO vist our outpost while on exercise , were we had two prisoners from our own BN chained up to a tracked APC, chained up becasue they kept escaping, we had taken off their boots and socks so they could not run very fast, refused to take them to the bathroom becasue they kept trying to escape while taking a leak, we had led them in their t shirts and taken their belt so they would have to run and hold up their pants at the same time. it was fall with frost on the ground, let's just say these guys were cold as shi* Anyways it pissed off the LT Col, he lined us up and shouted if your willing to do this to someone in our own BN what would you do to an enemy soldier that had just killed some of your comrades...this point stuck with me the rest of my career. sometimes compassion is the virtue that is the first one we forget.. I think compassion is dead today. My point is this those in this convoy were Canadians, yes, they were pain in the asses, but still they were Canadians no more or less than any one of those that lived in Ottawa. and if we are willing to treat Canadians this way, how do we treat others. i remember the vaccine arguments when there were talks about arrests, sending people to camps, with no compassion or total disregard to who these people where and what made them different than the rest of us... The event is over, but it should invoke discussion until we take away some lessons learned.

  21. I have had a fascination with the long con for years, ever since I saw The Sting. I have to hand it to President Trump. A long con is complex when aimed at a single victim but to con tens of millions of people at the same time takes real talent. The problem is, a long con requires precise timing. There comes a point when the grifter and his shills have to blow off the mark and disappear. In this case, that moment should have been on Nov. 7, 2020, when the networks called the race for President Biden. If President Trump had stuck to that timing, it would have been the scam of the century. He fell into the trap that falls on many grifters, they get greedy. Hubris is the hero that foils more villains than the Lone Ranger. I say this as an interested observer, and I am not trying to tell Americans how to vote.

  26. Giant Wind Farms Arise Off Scotland, Easing the Pain of Oil’s Decline “Oil and gas workers, losing their jobs as fossil fuel investment wanes, find work in the wind energy business. Across the globe, governments and developers are pouring hundreds of billions of dollars into large offshore wind farms like Beatrice to meet climate-change goals. Britain is already generating more than 10 percent of its electricity from wind at sea, and on same gusty days, like Nov. 2, wind produces more than half. As energy security becomes a critical issue in wake of Russia’s war in Ukraine, the country aspires to nearly quadruple offshore capacity over the next decade. The Beatrice wind farm takes its name from a nearby offshore oil field that was depleted and will be gradually dismantled. Skepticism about the future of fossil fuels remains strong in Britain and much of Europe, and the numbers tell a story of decline. After reaching a peak in 2014, investment in oil and gas in Britain plummeted by about three-quarters to around £3.7 billion last year.” So where will America be in 20 years? Dependent on yesterday’s energy technology, or leading the world with abundant, cheap energy? https://www.nytimes.com/2022/11/27/business/scotland-wind-farms-offshore.html

  30. Not quite equivalent. We have to clean up the mine. We don't have to treat natives like fragile children who have to be carefully protected, nurtured and have all their decisions made for them by us. I'm not clear on the scope of the question. What would be done differently about native schools? Or what would be done differently to integrate natives? I'll assume the latter. And the answer to that is difficult because we face the problem that the majority of the representatives of natives are quite content, thanks very much, with the present system. They and their families are at the top of the pyramid and have little reason to want that pyramid torn down and replaced with something that wouldn't pay them nearly so well or give them any real power. A professor whose name I forget said something once about how the leaders of disadvantaged minority groups rarely have much interest in pursuing goals which might result in promoting the disadvantaged minority and moving them into harmony with the whole because if that succeeds they no longer need those leaders. Which means you're going to have to overcome almost certain opposition from native chiefs and go over their heads to the natives themselves in proposing solutions that would result in abandoning the reserve system and the Indian Act in favor of a change which would be challenging and tumultuous but result in a better life in the long run. And certainly a better life for their kids. You need to overcome fear of the unknown, reassure people that they'll have something to fall back on. It ain't going to be easy, and would require determination for a long-term solution which none of our leaders have so far shown much inclination for. They are not separate nations. That is a polite fiction, like an adult patting a child's head and congratulating them on some terrible creation they've just presented you with. Most of these 'nations' are under 2,000 people strong. That's not a nation. It's barely a village. Not to mention separate nations don't need to have 100% of their bills paid by someone else. Quebec, btw, is not a nation either, but that's a whole other argument about political cowardice. A nation without a sense of shared identity is brittle and will fracture at the stress lines and dissolve into violence under pressure. Of course there would eventually be cost savings. Do you imagine Canadians are going to put up with paying their way forever? It's going to last only until the majority of power brokers in parliament are not white. Once the Asians take over - and they will inevitably take over given immigration and birth levels) natives are going to be faced with some pretty goddam harsh choices because I've never met a non white immigrant who had ANY sympathy for natives (I'm sure there are at least some who do). And the ones with the least sympathy are the ones whose culture is most demanding of hard work. And yes, I'm aware Jagmeet Singh makes all kinds of mouth noises about supporting natives, but he's a trust fund rich boy who operates on an ideological level quite different from most people.

It is deliberate misleading, bordering on professional misconduct to clearly and deliberately confuse the public using a common word for something with quite different meaning. Two: no, not "you should" but you can IF you choose freely. Where else can we get down this path under this banner? China knows. Three: when was the benefit proven in an open and transparent public discussion as opposed to robed magicians waving their hands / notebooks? Four: does massive ongoing propaganda amount to coercion, at least psychological one? See above for "free choice". So many questions but none mattered because we just can. No question needed, no answers expected no checks even common sense and no accountability. Where will it take us?

I do, however, know enough about it to understand that Justinflation, or Bidinflation is goofy nonsense, and I do speak to the experts who do understand what's going on.

It doesn't have to do with money or other circumstances of birth. It refers to the general "benefit of the doubt" that white folks like myself enjoy every day in a society that is built from the ground up to treat us as a special class. OP, did you forget that you already posted a stupid thread about white privilege?
