Random Quotations – July 8th, 2019.

Six items in total…

“Professor Attaran wants you to read his unsolicited and deliberately insulting tweets. He wants you to talk about the tight links between the polling firm that provided him with his ‘quotation’ and the Liberal Party of Canada. He wants you to hurl all kinds of abuse at him… Then, he and others will go through the pile of invective generated by this Sunday evening musing, pick out the most racist and inflammatory takes, and use them to justify the idea that facts are under assault, that minorities cannot speak out on issues of the day in Canada, that Conservatives don’t believe in freedom of speech, and that ‘right-wing mobs’ exist and are being directed by CPC thought leaders.” – Joshua Lieblein, “Ottawa professor calls Conservatives the party of the uneducated” – The Post Millennial, July 8th, 2019.

“…female cows raped for their milk and their babies stolen.” – Comment beneath news item, July 2nd, 2019.

“Industrial logging is a key economic driver for much of the road building… Some logging roads are abandoned, but many are used by slash-and-burn farmers and poachers to penetrate deep into surviving rainforests… As a result, the global population of forest elephants has collapsed by two-thirds over the past decade… Elephants, gorillas and chimps hardly have anywhere to hide from poachers now.” – Professor Bill Laurance, quoted in “Roads and deforestation explode in the Congo basin” – James Cook University, June 24th, 2019.

“They have gotten to the point where they have divided humanity into ‘good people’ (i.e. themselves) and everyone else, who are by default bad people… Violence is obviously required to fight the bad people, because the system was set up by them, is controlled by them, and works only to the benefit of the bad people. The system does not punish the bad people sufficiently for their crimes or errors, and so it must be destroyed and subverted too.” – Joshua Lieblein, “How Antifa rationalizes violence” – The Post Millennial, July 7th, 2019.

“The pro-life movie Unplanned has had its first Canadian screening cancelled after alleged threats were made against the Shuswap movie theatre… Unplanned is going to screen in more than 24 cinemas across Canada for a week starting July 12th. However, the film’s very existence has stirred up a great deal of debate, condemnation, and, now, even threats over its controversial plot… Since the film’s announcement, pro-choice activists have been protesting hard against the decision to even screen the film, but this will be the first time that any threats of violence have succeeded in stopping the film’s prospective screening.” – Dylan Gibbons, “Pro-life film cancelled following threats” – The Post Millennial, July 5th, 2019.

“It fundamentally changes how you see numerous things you never noticed before… You start to notice how men are almost always portrayed as clowns in TV advertising, or the ridiculous preponderance of inter-racial relationships in those ads… and you notice that every single TV show is full of indoctrination, propaganda and lies – especially the news. It can be maddening as you look around and wonder why nobody else sees what now appears so clearly to you. You start to feel different … isolated… Eventually you accept that what you believed your whole life, and based many decisions upon, is a deliberate lie, and that you are now different from others in a very profound way.” – John Young, “Living the woke life” – Western Voices World News, July 9th, 2019.
