Five items in total…

“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.

“All this wasn’t good enough for Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Connecticut), who demanded to know if the plan was to only take down ‘one web site.’ No doubt he has a whole list of sites he’d like to take down. Even more ominously, it was revealed that a direct threat had been made to these companies by Sen. Mark Warner (D-Virginia), who sent out a memo listing all the ways the government could crack down on Big Data if they refuse to go along with cleansing the internet of ‘divisive’ material.” – Justin Raimondo, “Challenging the lords of the internet” – antiwar.com, August 9th, 2018.

“The Democrat Senator of Connecticut, Chris Murphy called for more [all] conservative websites to be banned from social media after InfoWars was banned across the board in a coordinated attack by the tech tyrants on Monday… We predicted this months ago – the left is on the march and they’re coming for all pro-Trump websites… They are coming for FOX News, Breitbart News and Gateway Pundit next… they’re so brazen now they’re just coming out in public and calling for political speech to be shut down online.” – Tea Party, “Democrat Senator: Survival of our democracy depends on banning conservative websites from social media” – August 7th, 2018.

“(But) it’s more likely that patriots have simply learned their lesson: not to put their trust in the law, the police, or the First Amendment. Flagrantly-biased law enforcement since last August has convinced many on the Dissident Right that they not only will not be defended by police, they will not even be permitted to defend themselves. Since the release of the Heaphy Report on the events in Charlottesville, it has been undeniable that the local police department deliberately fostered a climate of instability and unrest so it would have an excuse to shut down the rally.” – Charlotteville Survivor, “Charlottesville after a year” – The Unz Review, August 10th, 2018.

A woman in the crowd… asked: ‘When does Ottawa plan to reimburse the $146 million dollars that Québec spent on Canada’s illegal migrants?’…The uppity senior repeated her question. Then Justin Trudeau lost all control, screaming at the lady hysterically… After a seemingly endless tirade by the feminist Prime Minister, the poor woman was physically and apparently painfully grabbed by a man in civilian clothing who did not first identify himself as an undercover peace officer… Canada may be glorious, but apparently its citizens are not free to ask certain questions.” – Raymond Ayas, “Woman asks Justin Trudeau a simple question – and he screams at her like a maniac” – The Post Millennial, August 19th, 2018.
