“A postdoctoral researcher at the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT), Marini says that these stereotypes are so instilled in the human mind that ‘the only way to change them is to change the biological mechanisms of the brain responsible for generating and controlling these stereotypes’… To accomplish this, Marini proposes the use of ‘non-invasive brain stimulation techniques,’ which ‘modulate the mechanisms through which the brain regulates our behavior’ by introducing transcranial electric or magnetic currents.” – Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D, “Italian psychologist proposes electric shock treatment to eliminate prejudices” – Breitbart, August 19th, 2019.

“There have been many sleepless nights… I did not realize that people could object to me finding out all the relevant information I can about a potential babysitter, including their age and sex. I thought I was doing what was best for my young children… Just trying to learn enough about a potential new babysitter can get me in trouble and I need to ensure that my children are safe” – From Jeff Labine’s article “Single dad hit with human rights complaint for asking about sitter’s gender” – Toronto Sun, August 20th, 2019.

“If someone wants free stuff from the government, they vote or support those that promise it. The money is taken from those that do work (oppressors) and gives it to those who won’t work (the oppressed). It’s a social & political contract. Give me power, I give you free stuff and will protect your receivership. Of course, if you give them enough power you will eventually no longer have a vote or a choice in the matter or even the free stuff.” – Ray DiLorenzo, “Who is Antifa? What you need to know” – Canada Free Press, August 24th, 2019.

“The Liberal government turned down 26 applications for Canada Summer Jobs funding because they were suspected of having pro-life views… Out of 40,000 applications for funding over 400 were turned down because of human rights concerns, while 26 rejections were specifically over pro-life views on abortion… The rejections are a result of an attestation introduced by the Liberal government in 2018 which bars groups that don’t meet certain criteria regarding human rights, abortion, or gender identity… Despite this, several controversial groups have received funding in the past year including a charity suspended by the CRA for allegedly funding terrorist groups.” – Cosmin Dzsurdzsa, “Liberals turn down 26 Canada Summer Jobs organizations for pro-life views” – The Post Millennial, August 31st, 2019.
