“But, I agree, passionately, with respected journalists like Paul Wells, Andrew Coyne, Chantal Hebert, Terry Corcoran and a host of others, who reject the Liberals’ bail-out as an unacceptable intervention that will compromise the independence of their craft… I share their opposition to the Liberal proposal of a ‘panel’ of ‘news experts’ who would distribute the election-year beneficence by deciding which newsrooms are ‘credible’ and worthy… and which newsrooms aren’t.” – Peter Kent, “Liberals’ $600 million media bailout lacks depth, fails to solve core problem” – The Post Millennial, Dec. 22nd, 2018.

“…the truth is that merely holding and expressing nationalist, populist, patriotic or Christian opinions and beliefs is deemed a ‘violation’ because such beliefs have been subjectively defined as ‘hateful’… For example, PayPal announced it was banning Infowars last week because Infowars had ‘promoted hate and discriminatory intolerance’… In real terms, this meant that we had opposed the teaching of transgenderism to young children in schools and criticized political Islam.” – Paul Joseph Watson, “Big Tech has defined conservatism as hate speech” – Infowars, Sept. 24th, 2018.

National Post & Toronto Sun “Comments” – September 8th, 2018

Saturday, September 8th, 2018

I have found in the past that commenting under letters-to-the-editor or news items in the on-line version of newspapers can be an excellent means of getting your point across to quite a large audience. Equally, it is important to not get bogged down in “following” responses to your and other people’s scrawlings, it can take up a lot of your time.

It is better to just simply post your comment, bookmark it, and check occasionally to see if any critique has been posted that requires a response.

And as I have said before, “Obviously, name-calling and bad language might go over well in the ‘comments’ to be found beneath the published letters, very often the comments contain little else…” so the comments below might not be for the prudish or delicate.

Enjoy!

“They have not taken on the issue of free speech, even when there are human rights courts fining people… and Universities regularly trying to intimidate and silence non-far-left voices. They didn’t support free speech, just so the Liberals won’t accuse them of supporting hate speech… The Canadian Conservative Party is afraid of being called racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, transphobic… (and) all the other phobias and isms that the far-left invented within the last 5 years.” (Emphasis added) – Siavash Safavi, “Unpopular opinion: How Bernier’s decision could save conservativism in Canada” – The Post Millenial, August 24th, 2018. (An interesting article, you can read it here.)

“She (The president of Wilfrid Laurier University) built a Giza-sized pyramid of clichés and virtue-speak about something she was pleased to call ‘better speech’ – as opposed to that decayed old concept, hustled by the likes of John Stuart Mill, Voltaire, and the framers of the American Constitution, known as ‘free speech’… It’s only when progressives lose control of an issue that they agree to even have it discussed. This is then called a conversation… ‘We need to have a conversation’ is the white flag of the politically correct brigade.” – Rex Murphy, “Laurier, trading ‘free speech’ for ‘better speech,’ proves unspeakably clueless still” – National Post, August 3rd, 2018.

Equally, it is important to not get bogged down in “following” responses to your own and other people’s scrawlings, it can become addictive and take up a lot of time.

“…current opponents of so-called hate speech have redefined violent behavior to include upsetting words spoken by others… This is how advocates of ‘snuffing out’ certain types of speech can reconcile their position with stated support for ‘freedom’ and ‘free speech’… By opposing certain types of speech, one is not opposing basic freedoms, but is opposing actual violence… If speech can be shown to be violence, then it becomes morally legitimate to call for action by the state to limit or abolish that speech.” – Ryan McMaken, “Redefining violence: The problem with PC speech codes” – Mises Institute, May 17th, 2018.

“The judge also intervened on a number of occasions when Jezz was being cross-examined to dispute what Jezz was saying.This was not his job, it was the job of the prosecutor to challenge what Jezz was saying… both judge and prosecuting counsel accepted opinion as fact and were seemingly oblivious to what they were doing which in short was enforcing the politically correct view of the world. For example, prosecuting counsel thought nothing of quoting a senior judge that freedom of expression had to be compatible with the ‘standards of a just and fair multiracial society’.” – Robert Hendersom, quoted in “British White nationalist leader Jez Turner jailed for criticizing Jewish power” – Canadian Assoc. for Free Expression, May 15th, 2018.

“The earlier section of the Met’s hate crime definition might also seem alarming, insisting that people only need to ‘believe’ a crime is motivated by hate for it to be recorded as such; however, this is a common definition used by police tracing back to recommendations of the 1999 MacPherson inquiry… The Crown Prosecution Service confirmed last year that a ‘hate incident’ only needs to be ‘perceived’ with ‘no evidence needed’, and many UK forces include ‘dislike’ and ‘unfriendliness’ as evidence of a hate crime…” – Liam Deacon, “London police edit ‘thought crime’ threat after ridicule online” – Breitbart, March 20th, 2018.

Caledonia Patriot Randy Fleming Needs Our Help

Thursday, March 15th, 2018

“Almost nine years ago, he dared to walk along Argyle Street in the town of Caledonia, Ont., carrying a Canadian flag on a pole towards a peaceful so-called ‘flag rally’… For this impudence, he was wrestled to the ground by a half-dozen Ontario Provincial Police officers, permanently injured and charged with obstructing police… After 12 court appearances, the Crown abruptly withdrew the criminal charge.” – Christie Blatchford, National Post (1).
