“The modern state has to police more and more of our lives, because it has set itself against the normal. It defines normal acquisition as greed, normal group preferences as bigotry, and normal morality as hate. Consequently it has to watch over us at all times to make sure we aren’t too assertive about our normality, while it caters to our abnormalities.” – Joseph Sobran, quoted by Linh Dinh in “Your black future” – The Unz Review, June 14th, 2020.

“The characters are still allowed to use cartoon violence and blow up sticks of Acme dynamite, though Sam will no longer carry pistols and Fudd will lose his hunting rifle… ‘We’re not doing guns,’ said executive producer Peter Browngardt when speaking with The New York Times.” – Sam Edwards, “Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam stripped of their guns in new Loony Tunes” – The Post Millennial, June 9th, 2020.

“I realize more than ever how being a white, privileged woman has put me far ahead of so many, and in particular those in the Black community… And while I can’t change the past, I can do my part to do better in the future… I remain more committed than ever to support anti-racism efforts and will do everything in my power to right this wrong…” – Jessica Mulroney, quoted in “Jessica Mulroney turfed by Bell Media after ‘white privilege’ scrap with blogger” – Toronto Sun, July 11th, 2020.

“The battle for America has begun. The snakes in the Democrat Party with the help of Soros and his minions are using their forever reliable useful idiots to do their bidding. Antifa, Black Lives Matter, the Left, are fiercely working to finish the job they planned in 2016…a coup, the takedown of America. And Russia, China, Turkey, Iran, the scum in the Democrat Party and some in the Republican Party, and all the other enemies of freedom think they have cause to celebrate…” – Ray DiLorenzo, “The takedown of America” – Canada Free Press, June 8th, 2020.

“Unconscious racism means, according to an Ontario Human Rights Commission tribunal, that because ‘there will often be no direct evidence of discrimination; discrimination will more often be proven by circumstantial evidence and inference’… As such, ‘there is no need to establish an intention or motivation to discriminate’. Rather, ‘the effect of the respondent’s actions on the complainant’ is what is significant… In that context: ‘Once a prima facie case of discrimination has been established, the burden shifts to the respondent to provide a rational explanation which is not discriminatory’… In other words, the legal concept of innocent until proven guilty has now been turned on its head. The person accused of unconscious racism must now prove his or her innocence.” – Lorrie Goldstein, “Unconscious racism the new McCarthyism “ – Toronto Sun, June 17th, 2020.
