The most insane cancel culture twist

The country music band Lady Antebellum, who changed it to "Lady A" because apparently it offended #NiggerLivesMoreImportantThanSocietyMotherFucker, has now sued the (black) singer already known as Lady A for not letting them have the name she already was using that they just decided is theirs.

On June 11, members of the band Lady A (Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood) renounced their name saying when they formed 14 years ago, they didn't consider the pre-Civil War "associations that weigh down this word," including ties to slavery.

Wouldn't it be something if, when this all ended up before a judge, he ruled that they legally had to change their name back to Lady Antebellum?

Fake News

Tell us exactly what was on the poster, CBC.

You won't, of course. You won't allow comments on the video for the same reason.

Because if we saw the actual poster we'd know it wasn't a big deal. You're lying fake news.

Kill yourselves.

Baking powder

Can't find my picture of the aisle amply supplied of everything else, so I have to use this donated photo instead.
Hey remember when "baking supplies" were being emptied from store shelves for some obscure thing called...hold on let me confirm...a "COVID-19"?

One of the things that I had noted at the time was that it wasn't really "baking supplies" that were being emptied out. It was flour. Just flour. If you wanted yeast, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, condensed milk, etc. it didn't really affect you. This stuck me as more than a little strange: what on earth were these people making?

CTV made it all about homemade artisanal bread which I think was only a dozen people with active Instagram accounts. This all happened just after toilet paper and I think everybody just started hoarding flour because they noticed some random post of empty shelves of flour. Anyways having heard that flour was running low (in grocery stores mind you, Bulk Barn always had plenty of flour including the much superior barley flour) everybody just started mass hoarding flour in case they ran out. Why did they need flour? They just did. As I joked at the time, there can't be that many people needing to make gravy or roux.

Regardless the point of this story is that when this baking supplies shortage began to be a thing, I succumbed. I also gave into madness, as it were. You see, I noticed that my container of baking powder was getting low and thought I should buy a backup. So I bought a second pack of baking powder. And today, finally, I used up the last of my baking powder and needed to open the one I had previously bought.

I'm still waiting to open that extra package of toilet paper I bought in late March though.


Sir Humphrey on far-left hypocrisy

From the classic Yes, Prime Minister episode "The Bishop's Gambit" comes this exchange about a socially conservative Anglican pastor and why he is dangerous to governments as a Bishop with a seat in the House of Lords:

Humphrey: He's also against oppression in Africa.

Hacker: So are we.

Humphrey: But he's against it from black AND white governments.

Hacker: Oh. You mean he's a racist?

You can watch it yourself at roughly 26:05 in the video below:

Female-centric cities would have buildings that leak once every 28 days

Yesterday Rush Limbaugh opened his show talking about this article from (of course) The Guardian:

Glass ceilings and phallic towers. Mean streets and dark alleys. Road names and statues of men. From the physical to the metaphorical, the city is filled with reminders of masculine power. And yet we rarely talk of the urban landscape as an active participant in gender inequality. A building, no matter how phallic, isn’t actually misogynist, is it? Surely a skyscraper isn’t responsible for sexual harassment, the wage gap, or even the glass ceiling, whether it has a literal one up top or not?

That said, our built environments can still reflect patterns of gender-based discrimination. To imagine the city and its structures as neutral places where complicated human social relations are staged is to ignore the simple fact that people built these places. As the feminist geographer Jane Darke has said: “Our cities are patriarchy written in stone, brick, glass and concrete.” In other words, cities reflect the norms of the societies that build them. And sexism is a deep-rooted norm.
Here's the thing: expanding cities and draining people out of the rural areas was the left's idea
Remember urban sprawl? The solution was supposed to be, yes that's right, large cities with buildings stretching high into the sky. The Guardian article has a photo of the Chicago River: when you take a Chicago river tour you might hear the tour guide excitedly talk about how, sure the majestic Trump Tower is the second-tallest building in the city (after the Sears Tower, of course), but the under-construction Vista Tower will be the 3rd tallest building in Chicago and the tallest skyscraper in the world designed by a woman. So "masculine and phallic" is something women are getting into too. Surprise surprise, women like a giant phallus as much if not more than men do.

Hilariously enough, one of the distinguishing features of this phallic building designed by a woman is "blow-through floors"

So after demanding an end to urban sprawl, now the demented left doesn't like how urban densification involves a lot of buildings that look like erect penises. They hate the physical requirements of the very spaces they demand.

Donald J. Trump's July 3rd speech

Tucker nails it:

The full text. It's really quite amazing.

We will state the truth in full without apology. We declare that the United States of America is the most just and exceptional nation ever to exist on earth. We are proud of the fact that our country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and we understand that these values have dramatically advanced the cause of peace and justice throughout the world. We know that the American family is the bedrock of American life. We recognize the solemn right and moral duty of every nation to secure its borders and we are building the wall. We remember that governments exist to protect the safety and happiness of their own people. A nation must care for its own citizens first. We must take care of America first. It’s time. We believe in equal opportunity, equal justice, and equal treatment for citizens of every race, background, religion and creed. Every child of every color, born and unborn, is made in the holy image of God.


Young Ontario niggers are dumb and violent (just ask their teachers)

It turns out that racially blind practices in Ontario schools "disproportionately" affect black students.
Streaming — in which students must choose to pursue either an "academic" or "applied" track when they begin high school — has been shown to disproportionately affect Black and low-income students when it comes to graduation rates and the chance of going to a post-secondary institution.

Details of the province's decision were first published in the Toronto Star on Monday morning. In an exclusive interview with the newspaper, Education Minister Stephen Lecce called streaming a "systemic, racist, discriminatory" practice.
Doug Ford's administration in general and Steve Lecce in particular are continuing their slow descent (maybe not even that slow!) into liberal lunacy.

Do you remember back in the 90s when one of the knocks of Canadian education was how blunt and lumbering it was? I remember in Alberta "streaming" was particularly fetishized by "educators" and activists. In Europe, you see, around the time of Grade 8 or Grade 9, students are given aptitude and interest examinations to try to determine what they wanted out of high school: from an academic education (clumsily already existing in Alberta in the vein of Math 20, Chemistry 30, Math 33, Physics 10, etc.), or a more applied education for the guys who dreamed of being welders and graduating with a GPA of exactly 50.1% (no, seriously, one of my good friends in High School literally calculated how much of his Social 33 departmental exam he needed to finish to get a 51% final grade). In big cities there was also the International Baccalaureate program for the intensely academic, and increasingly in places like Edmonton's Victoria Composite High School programs for those with more artistic interests. Not comparable to the States of course there are still a few schools like Harry Ainley who push for athletic pursuits so students can get those sweet sweet full scholarships to places like Duke or University of Michigan (while even the best of the International Baccalaureate students is lucky to get a 75% scholarship: I was mostly offered 50% ones myself).

While still nowhere near what Europe has been doing (remember those bygone days when European countries were the places we all needed to emulate?), it sounds like the Ontario education system similarly developed along the same lines as Alberta: trying to customize the high school courseload for the very diverse and divergent types of students who were walking into those doors. It does the future welder or future forklift driver no favours to be spending hours making him (and yes most often the sex ratio was skewed so that the 13/23/33 course streams were majority male while the 10/20/30 streams were majority grls -- though we boys, one notes without hesitation, also were at the top of that heap) learn that "wherefore art thou Romeo" means "do you exist" and not "where are you".

Note above that I mentioned that there was a sex imbalance between the programs. Does this mean high schools are systemically misandrist? Of course, not, anymore than you would say that the prison system is systemically misandrist. Of course, the same argument can (and has) been made about prisons: nobody would say that men being imprisoned beyond their proportion of the general population means the system is biased against them...yet you'll find a lot of morons insisting that niggers are being systematically discriminated against because they are imprisoned beyond their proportion of the general population.

Turns out the same narrow thinking has bothered these same morons about Ontario public schools.
A 2017 report led by York University professor Carl James found that Black teens in the Greater Toronto Area were being streamed into applied course tracks at significantly higher rates than other students.

Fifty-three per cent of Black students were in academic programs as compared to 81 per cent of white and 80 per cent of other so-called racialized students, meaning those who are part of other visible minorities. Conversely, 39 per cent of Black students were enrolled in applied programs, compared to 18 per cent of other racialized groups and 16 per cent of white students.

Meanwhile, a 2015 report from the group People for Education found that students taking applied courses in Grade 9 were much less likely to go to university and that students from low-income groups were more likely to enrol in applied courses.
The data shows black kids can't handle academics and have behavioural issues.

Leece doesn't go out and say it, and obviously neither do the activists, but this study by Carl James indicates that black kids can't handle academics. Even by the apparently weak standards of the infamously bad Ontario school system, it's crazy that 80% of nonblacks are in academic programs: my own memories of Alberta High School is a few years old, but I am pretty sure that the number of students in Social Studies 30 was smaller than the number of students in Social Studies 33. Even if our group was larger, we weren't significantly larger, so I would put the breakdown as 40-60 between academic-applied (to use the Ontario nomenclature). Even if I had it backwards, it would be 60-40 and not 70-30 and definitely not 80-20. Yet with this dumbing down of the Ontario curriculum nigger kids still only go into the academic stream at 65% the rate of whites and "other so-called racialized students" by which I can assume we mean asians with some Middle Easterners and (non-red) Indians tossed into the balance. This is the GTA after all. Meanwhile, the same article mentions another disparity assumed to be caused by "systemic racism":
The Ministry of Education also says it will implement a ban on suspensions for students in junior kindergarten to Grade 3, another practice that has been shown to disproportionately impact Black students.

The 2017 study by James reported that 42 per cent of all Black students in the Toronto, York, Peel and Durham school boards had been suspended at least once by the time they left high school.
The review found that Black students make up only 10.2 per cent of the secondary school population in Peel but represent about 22.5 per cent of the students receiving suspensions. Further, reviewers heard anecdotally that some principals "use any excuse" to suspend Black students, including wearing hoodies or hoop earrings.
They try to explain it away with "hoop earrings and hoodies" when we all know they really mean "little black girls are stabbing their classmates with hoop earrings and little black boys all wearing identical hoodies beat up classmates and then collectively deny it was them". Still, this is another data point indicating that this race is also violent and cannot be civilized to the degree their nonblack classmates can be.

It's worth noting that both Kurn and Martok, who also went to High School in different parts of rural Alberta, disagree with me: Kurn thinks 10-20-30 was the notable majority and Martok thinks it was half and half.

Outcomes don't prove "systemic racism"

In both studies, along with all the studies "proving" "systemic racism" by showing inequity in outcomes, what's missing is the mechanism. What in "the system" is causing this? Just claiming it's there to make sure the CBC and Toronto Star editorial board say nice things about you doesn't make it true. Where in "the system" is it racist and discriminatory? Are the tests Eurocentric (please don't ask how the asians seem unaffected by this)? Are the students being asked to perform math questions on the aptitude exam while somebody sits just outside the room with a basketball and a basket of fried chicken? Are the musical composition theory questions all about notes and not stupid backbeats while constantly yelling "cellphone" into a mic?

No mechanism of how "the system" is racist, no systemic racism.

The CBC article seems to imply that the problem is racist teachers. Ah yes, the Canadian teaching profession: that same body who writes the curriculum to teach far-left lies to your children (lies like the evil sodomitic lifestyle is good, that healthcare obviously has to come from the government, and that poor Red Indians have been mistreated by the taxpayer and forced into evil schools), is apparently just full of haters and racists.

Please ignore that these same teachers who vote 95% left-wing apparently are also delighting in torturing black kids for the crime of having hoop earrings. (If this seems familiar to you, I noted a decade ago that the Alberta Teachers union seemed to think their teachers were such right-wing racists it was mandatory to exclude their statements from Human Rights Commission oversight)

The big lie

They keep telling these stupid lies. Pandering politicians like Lecce keep regurgitating the lies and giving them extra weight because now "even conservative [sic] politicians admit this so why can't you you ignorant hater". Do people keep believing these lies? Apparently.

Yet the fact remains: Ontario education policies deliberately brought in with the intention of improving education outcomes and letting students obtain the secondary education that will suit them the best for the rest of their lives is now going away "because racism". Nothing racist has been shown in the system itself: the two competing arguments seem to be the "far-left teachers are all super duper racist and hate black children", and "black children are culturally and intellectually inferior". If you look at the top of this post you'll see a graphic showing IQa across the planet. Despite all the claims that IQ tests are culturally biased, there hasn't been a single IQ test yet that has shown that blacks do as well or better than any other race.

Nigger kids in Ontario are dumb and violent. We can try to reorganize school systems to try to disguise that fact, but we can never make it go away. The truth is out there.

RIP Charlie Daniels

On Saturday I posted about July Fourth and embedded a YouTube video of Charlie Daniels' immortal "This Ain't No Rag, It's a Flag.

Yesterday, Charlie Daniels died.

Obviously all the obituaries you'll be seeing make reference to his greatest hit: "The Devil Went Down to Georgia". You may recall it appeared on this blog six years ago mainly to bemoan how bad his PG-rated "sequel" song was. It's a good song, I enjoy it.

But in deference to my father's favourite Charlie Daniels song, let's give a classic listen to his "Uneasy Rider" (or as he always thought it was named, "Ballad of the Uneasy Rider"):

Rest in peace, Charlie. Shame you both lived long enough to witness the leftist destruction of the country you loved but not long enough to watch us slaughter them in the upcoming civil war.


This day in (blog) history

There's no Calgary Stampede this year. Eleven years ago there was and I went.

Hot asian chicks seen in skirts, cowboy hats, cowboy boots, and frilly tanktop: 190
Hot black chicks seen in skirts, cowboy hats, cowboy boots, and frilly tanktop: 2
Sadly I've been looking through my photo archives and can't find the 2009 or 2012 Stampede photos (the last time I went).


Wuhan Flu "Systemic Racism" means an end to immigration

Last month I wrote about how, using Shiny Pony's own logic against him, Canada needs to end all immigration.

Well curiously enough, with the myth of systemic racism going round many of the same public policy points are true: if systemic racism is a problem in Canada, then why are we allowing any nonwhite immigrants into Canada?

The theory is that Canada is a horrible racist country. Again, your expert in these matters is a man by the name of Trudeau, from Queerbec. This is his theory. It says that Canada is horribly unfair to nonwhites, and that they are constantly mistreated and maligned to the point that their lives are in jeopardy. This isn't a "bad apples" thing either: by this theory everything in Canada is racist and causing them harm.

So the question becomes, why are we putting these blacks at risk by bringing them from Africa and the Caribbean to Canada? Yes yes, the immigration fetishists keep telling us about all the good immigrants can do, and whether they are right or wrong this is very ethnocentric of them. Even if immigration is so good for Canada, if it's bad for the immigrants we're being awfully scummy bringing so many of them in. And as usual by "we" I mean Rat Bastard 2.0 and the rest of the Laurentian Elite.

Okay, fine, if you're thinking about this for more than thirty seconds you'll also ask the question "wait if Canada is so bad why are they all coming here?" After all, this isn't 1911 where Canada basically conned Germans and Ukranians into moving out to Alberta by showing them false pictures of what Canada would be like. Presumably Kenyan immigrants to Toronto can WhatsApp and email friends back home saying "don't come here, it's so rayyyciiisttt" and the flow of immigrants would cease naturally.

If this logic sounds vaguely familiar by the way, We The Internet did a video about this just over a year ago:

The point stands: if these caring leftists were really so anxious to protect fragile ethnic minorities why are they not doing more to keep immigrants away from Trump's America. But if the racism is "systemic" then it's not Trump's America but just plain old America (or Canada, in this particular case). After all, if Canada is really that rotten, who could want to subject those poor dark skinned folks to such a hellhole?

Where's white guilt when you need it?


Happy (last) Birthday, America!

Today is Independence Day, the day that the Americans celebrate the birth of their country, even though it's basically just the day the Continental Congress agreed to the wording of the Declaration of Independence.

It's also possibly going to be the last one, if the shameful acts taking place in Vancouver on Canada Day is any indication.

I was hoping for nice weather to go down to the Devon Overpass, because Americans who have found their beaches recently closed can be taunted with photos. Alas, I'll just have to stick to bourbon whisky and Toby Keith records.

Bonus coverage: Mark Steyn has a 59 minute audio special about the "Glorious Fourth".

Green(back) Privilege

You want to talk about Privilege?

Okay, lets start with the Dollar Privilege.


Congrats to everybody!

I didn't think Operation Ship the Niggers Back to Africa and Make Them Think It Was Their Idea was going to work, but apparently I was wrong.

Edmonton Eskimos are 1-1 this week

This week the Edmonton Eskimos are 1-1 in their public relations. Obviously not on the field, since the CFL season is spiked due to the Wuhan Flu.

The win came today when the Eskimos confirmed that the name "Eskimos" will not be changed despite a lot of whining from the usual far-left groups. They believe that "Eskimo" is an offensive term. It isn't of course, but that's a fact and facts don't matter to these people. They just want to burn burn burn.

The most commonly accepted etymological origin of the word "Eskimo" is derived by Ives Goddard at the Smithsonian Institution, from the Montagnais word meaning "snowshoe-netter" or "to net snowshoes". The word assime·w means "she laces a snowshoe" in Montagnais. Montagnais speakers refer to the neighbouring Mi'kmaq people using words that sound like eskimo

In 1978, Jose Mailhot, a Quebec anthropologist who speaks Montagnais, published a paper suggesting that Eskimo meant "people who speak a different language". French traders who encountered the Montagnais in the eastern areas, adopted their word for the more western peoples and spelled it as Esquimau in a transliteration.

Some people consider Eskimo offensive because it is popularly perceived to mean "eaters of raw meat" in Algonquian languages common to people along the Atlantic coast. One Cree speaker suggested the original word that became corrupted to Eskimo might have been askamiciw (which means "he eats it raw"); the Inuit are referred to in some Cree texts as askipiw (which means "eats something raw").
That nobody who actually knows anything about languages finds it at all offensive is meaningless. It's like the recent controversy in Australia about Coon Cheese because some people like to call aborigines "coons" (which is unfair, it should be reserved exclusively for niggers). Coon Cheese is named after a dude with the surname Coon, but that fact doesn't hold these idiots back. They're allergic to facts. They don't want facts in the discussion because they'll lose the discussion (related: they also don't want a discussion).

The loss came earlier this week when the Green and Gold made the absolutely disgusting move of releasing Christion Jones for the "crime" of offending the NDP and speaking out against an evil and illegitimate lifestyle choice. Dyke MLA Janis Irwin complained about it, and after a brief period of refusing to apologize Jones made his one mistake: he made an apology. It didn't help, the Eskimos fired him for his deep-seated religious beliefs mere minutes later.

Never apologize Christion. Never.

Meanwhile though shame on the Eskimos: once you start succumbing to the mob they just intensify and move onto new targets. You'd think an organization endlessly under assault for a name incorrectly considered a racial slur would be a little more supportive of the people on the right side of history: people like me and Jones. Here's what Jones said, and it's worth mentioning I agree with every word of it because it is 100% true.

Man isn't supposed to be with a man. Woman isn't supposed to be with a woman. The choice they made is the wrong choice and they are fundamentally wicked for choosing it. They must change back or be changed back. Janis Irwin is only supposed to get dick and if she disagrees then her broken brain must be fixed to cure her of this incorrect orientation.

This is a huge own-goal, Eskimos. Faggots don't watch the CFL. Accommodating their sick delusions will never put their sodomitic butts into the seats at Commonwealth Stadium.


Defending yourself from the Antifa Riots

The Phantom Soapbox wants to know if you know that when the mob comes for you, you'll be helpless.

Canadians please note: This scenario will not go well for you if you are trying to protect your home and your family.
I remain unconvinced. If enough of us slaughter enough of them, it'll all be over.

Never mess with British Rail

I was rewatching the Season 12 NCIS episode "So It Goes" featuring a young Dr. Mallard (Adam Campbell, looking not horribly unlike young David McCallum as seen below) and his falling out with his crush and his best friend upon joining the British Army in 1968.

One early scene beings in a train station where Mallard is booking a train from London to Dover (which I've done as well, and highly recommend) and has to deal with a long-winded ticket booth operator (ha! irony!). It's a throwaway scene basically just there to introduce the setup and characters for the 1968 flashback portions of the episode. Normal people might forget it even existed a few days later.

Trainspotters are not normal.

Okay this isn't strictly speaking trainspotting as featured in Trainspotting: from the Railfan Wikipedia page (no, seriously):
Those who are "trainspotters" make an effort to "spot" all of a certain type of rolling stock. This might be a particular class of locomotive, a particular type of carriage or all the rolling stock of a particular company. To this end, they collect and exchange detailed information about the movements of locomotives and other equipment on the railway network, and become very knowledgeable about its operations.
This is more what David Mitchell discusses in his "British Attitude to Food" YouTube rant about how British men get obsessed with things like train numbers.

By "more what" I mean, of course, "precisely what". Because at least one obsessed British man has an entry in the "Goofs" section of the IMdB page for the episode about that scene that is as long as all other goofs combined, even the Doctor Who one (which David Mitchell might also comment on):
When Ducky is waiting at the station in flashback and Maggie walks in, there is an announcement for the next departure over the tannoy as they converse. The announcer states that the next departure from platform 3 calls at "Canterbury East, Ashford, Folkestone Central, Dover Priory, Dover Western Docks". Whilst these are all stations in Kent accessible from London it would not have been (and still is not) possible to take a single train from London to Dover via this route. Although there was once a line between Canterbury and Folkestone it actually ran from Canterbury West via South Canterbury on the Elham Valley Line, but this was pulled up in the mid 1950s and trains did not run direct from London to Dover via this line. Additionally trains from London via Ashford to Dover have always split at Ashford, usually into 'front 4 to Folkestone, rear 4 to Canterbury West' (not Canterbury East) - Ashford actually being the first of the stations listed on the announcement and being the last on the shared portion of the journey. Depending on which London station Ducky is supposed to be in (and sadly even small UK stations look nothing like the one portrayed in this scene, never mind a major station which would have been the starting point of Ducky's journey!) the train may also have called at additional London stations - for example the start of the line via Ashford would have been Charing Cross, the next station being Waterloo East, followed by London Bridge after which the train would call at Sevenoaks, Tonbridge, Paddock Wood and Ashford then Canterbury West OR Folkestone Central and finally to Dover. Alternatively, if the train was going via Canterbury East then the London station would have to be Victoria and the train would be calling at Rochester, Chatham, Gillingham, Sittingborne, Faversham, Canterbury East, Dover Priory. And finally, although in its later years the station at Dover docks was indeed called Dover Western Docks, it was only named this in 1979 and prior to this was called Dover Marine. If Ducky was travelling via Folkestone there is also just as much chance that Ducky would have been travelling to Folkestone Harbour on the boat train as continuing to Dover.
I took the Victoria line, for those of you (almost certainly British) who are interested in it.


"All Cops Are Bastards" but it turns out moronic leftists need the bastards in their corner

"Squiggly Line Guy" shows more than a few examples of leftists, particularly of the Viro Fascist variety, who can't get enough of the cops:

Year after year, these same Leftists in Seattle who have promoted the ACAB phrase, have also voted for tougher gun laws. Every year like clockwork they cry,” we have to do something,” —as if they didn’t just do that the year before, and the year before. Banning streamlined private sales, enacting Red Flag Laws, and scapegoating the mentally ill who generally aren’t all that violent to begin with, Leftists love police enforcement.

In Snohomish County in Washington State, one county north of Seattle’s King County, Leftists have started a recall effort against Sheriff Adam Fortney, who refused to enforce the closing of businesses. They’re upset that police weren’t using heavy hands. These are also the same people who turned in businesses and neighbors to the state’s snitch site, which eventually was made public.

This week Washington’s Governor Jay Inslee issued an emergency directive requiring the use of masks in public in situations where six feet of social distancing cannot be maintained. Washington’s ACAB Leftists applauded this, which made non compliance a misdemeanor offense. To be enforced by police.
And the catch-all ending for almost every article these days:
If it weren’t for double standards, the Left wouldn’t have standards at all

Dominion Day 2020

As Mark Steyn noted on his Monday audio show (which featured a parody of Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah), since "Canada Day" is now a scary racist and colonial holiday we might as well back to the original name (which, you probably note, I've been doing for years).

So indeed, it's now Dominion Day in the post-post-modern world where everything offends everybody. So fly your Red Ensign and loudly sing "The Maple Leaf Forever" this Dominion Day.

In days of yore, from Britain's shore,

Wolfe, the dauntless hero came,

And planted firm Britannia's flag,

On Canada's fair domain.

Here may it wave, our boast, our pride,

And joined in love together,

The thistle, shamrock, rose entwine

The Maple Leaf forever!

The Maple Leaf, our emblem dear,

The Maple Leaf forever!

God save our Queen, and Heaven bless,

The Maple Leaf forever!

At Queenston Heights and Lundy's Lane,

Our brave fathers, side by side,

For freedom, homes, and loved ones dear,

Firmly stood and nobly died;

And those dear rights which they maintained,

We swear to yield them never!

Our watchword evermore shall be,

The Maple Leaf forever!

Our fair Dominion now extends

From Cape Race to Nootka Sound;

May peace forever be our lot,

And plenteous store abound:

And may those ties of love be ours

Which discord cannot sever,

And flourish green o'er freedom's home

The Maple Leaf forever!

On merry England's far famed land

May kind heaven sweetly smile,

God bless old Scotland evermore

and Ireland's Em'rald Isle!

And swell the song both loud and long

Till rocks and forest quiver!

God save our Queen and Heaven bless

The Maple Leaf forever!
And yes, strangely enough it's hard to find any good recordings of "The Maple Leaf Forever". It literally doesn't seem to have been recorded in the digital age. Here's the Mormon Tabernacle Choir:


"I didn’t realize you were able to build the world’s sole superpower merely by picking cotton"

Two Taki Mag articles in two days, eh?

Well, Jim Goad's article from a couple weeks ago asking "Do Black Feelings Matter too much?" is definitely worth the price of admission.

I believe the current national crisis has not been caused by an undervaluation of black life but rather an unwarranted reverence for—and fear of—black people’s feelings. Despite the torrents of propaganda, there is no defamation of blacks in the media. Instead, it is constant unrealistic praise. Black Americans have received so much sympathy, they appear to be overdosing on it.

Obviously no one gives a shit about my feelings or those of any white male at this point. You’ve made that brutally clear. And yet we haven’t burned buildings over it. Maybe we’re less insecure? Maybe, despite all your efforts, we feel far less shame about our history than black people feel about theirs?
We hear all the time about black rage, but never about black shame. It’s almost as if they have nothing to be ashamed of and countless reasons to be proud.

I’ve long thought that what underlies black rage is black shame. After all, it would seem to be quite a blow to the self-esteem to have such a history of being conquered and exploited and always winding up on the bottom no matter where you go or who surrounds you. It might make one wonder why this has been so easy to do historically. It might even lead an introspective person to suspect the deficiencies might lie with themselves rather than with everyone else.
I've obviously asked the same about Red Indians vis a vis Residential Schools: why did the same model that worked in Britain and India fail in Canada? Is it possible your race has inferiority?
No, white boy, shut yo’ pasty pink mouth, because BLACK LIVES MATTER MORE THAN WHITE FEELINGS.

When it comes to feelings, white men face an impossible scenario—they are either presumed to not have feelings at all (because they’re monsters), or they’re mocked for expressing any feelings at all—boo-hoo-hoo, white boy, go drown in your tears. The only feeling they’re permitted to express is a deep and incurable sense of self-hatred.

Explain to me why I should care about the feelings of people who don’t care about mine. I can’t spare a single feeling for someone who wishes me dead.
I can't.

Why is the new Alberta Lieutenant-Governor evil?

Who's bright idea was it to choose a Lieutenant-Governor who worships Mohammed, the child raping fake prophet who worships Satan the enemy of the one true Lord?

This scum, after all, has been promoting the great funamental evils of public healthcare and education. And of course she's been involved with the Aga Khan...

Remember the immortal words of Kate McMillan: the great thing about only hiring old white guys is that you don't have to be labelled when you fire them.
