“For example, if ocean levels have been rising for some 20,000 years, why do scientists allow environmentalists to get away with the claim that it’s a result of man-made global warming? Why aren’t there any reporters to highlight leftist statements such as those by Edenhofer, Stewart and others who want to ride global warming as a means to defeat capitalism and usher in socialism and communism? I would prefer to think that the silence of so many scientists represent their fears as opposed to their going along with the environmental extremist agenda.” – Walter E. Williams, “Scientists – dishonest or afraid?” – Toronto Sun, November 18th, 2019.

“Being so certain that they walk with angels, most progressives never bother looking down to see what’s stuck to their shoe.” – Jonathan Kay, “What to make of racism, sexism and homophobia – from the same people lecturing us about bigotry” – National Post, November 6th, 2019.

“The lesson of the day is that you can be an awful person who judges people based on narrow stereotypes (‘hockey culture’ is full of unworldly, bullying ‘white boys’), but as long as you’re on political Left, everything is a-ok” – Candice Malcolm twitter comment, quoted by Roberto Wakerell-Cruz in “Canadian TV host calls hockey players ‘white boys’ and ‘bullies’, sparks backlash” – The Post Millennial, November 13th, 2019.

“Antifa is a far-left ideology and movement which brings together radical communists and anarchists seeking a revolution that would result in communism… But they believe that they can do it and secure a communist society without the national borders, law enforcement, the military, or state authoritarianism that has represented other communist revolutions…” – Andy Ngo, quoted by Rachel del Guidice in “Antifa’s ultimate goal is communism, journalist attacked by adherents says” – The Daily Signal, November 7th, 2019.

“American progressives, beginning with Woodrow Wilson, set out to destroy America as founded to undo the Constitution and to make the US into a totalitarian creation not unlike Mao’s China, Stalin’s Soviet Union, Castro’s Cuba, Chavez’ and Maduro’s Venezuela… When the American people rebel and elect a Reagan or a Trump, their anger and vitriol escalates into the stratosphere. They unwittingly reveal not only their essential anti-Americanism but their fundamental abhorrence for anyone and everyone who takes issue with their intent to ‘transform’ America.” – Patricia McCarthy, “Trump vs. the barbarians at the gates” – American Thinker, October 29th, 2019.

“For a long-time, patriotic Canadians have been saying there is a double-standard, where anyone who upsets the tiny (but loud) far-left outrage mob gets silenced and cancelled, while those who attack the very foundation of Canada (like insulting hockey, accusing Canada of genocide, denigrating Canadian patriotism), get to stay in their jobs and even get rewarded… But now, it’s clear something is happening in this country… The silent majority is waking up and speaking up… Now, the tables have turned, and it’s a real battle for the soul of our country.” – Spencer Fernando, “The Don Cherry-Jess Allen double standard is awakening Canada’s silent majority” – The Post Millennial, November 16th, 2019.
