Alternate theory

Dozens of Winnipeg women, desperate enough to sleep with ugly Winnipeg men, try to save face by claiming they were given a roofie.

No I'm serious: having been to Winnipeg a few times (I was, pre-COVID, supposed to be there this summer actually) and talking with Winnipeg girls who have, not meaning to stroke my own ego, thrown themselves at me because of hot I was by virtue of clearly not being a local, this theory is easily more common than the CBC "oh woe is woman" talking point.


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.


Was the Wuhan Flu shutdown worth it?

According to the American Institute for Economic Research, the answer was no.

After 100 days, we are in a position for some preliminary analysis of the performance of locked down states versus those that did not lock down. AIER has already published the evidence that lockdown states had higher rates of unemployment.

The Sentinel, a nonprofit news source of the Kansas Policy Institute, confirms our research by reporting the following data: locked down states have overall a 13.2% unemployment rate, while open states have a 7.8% unemployment rate.
Alberta's unemployment rate in May was a shocking 15.5% by the way, and we were one of the lesser lockdown provinces.
In terms of health, locked down states have nearly four times the death rate from COVID-19.
So that's two negative aspects of the lockdown.

To be fair, as I noted elsewhere COVID isn't over so you can't just say "place X did better than place Y". The lockdown states will have smaller 2nd/3rd/9th waves and therefore may have gotten most of the deaths out of the way early, and the other states will catch up and surpass them. Let's still keep in the back of our head perhaps the most critical COVID issue that nobody looks at:

COVID-19 transmission rates increase along with your likelihood of dying.

Seriously, that one single aspect of the Wuhan Flu (if true) explains almost everything we've seen around us.
To be sure, many mitigating factors may exist. Open states may have had fewer long-term health facilities housing people with low life expectacies; in every state, these account for roughly half of all deaths from COVID-19. In fact, “deaths among a narrow 1.7% group of the population are greater than deaths from the other 98.3%.”

Population density between the states also varies and that could have been an explanatory variable. The open states also lacked governors who mandated that nursing homes accept active COVID-patients. Earlier this month, we published some more detailed research “Unemployment Far Worse in Lockdown States, Data Show” by economist Abigail Devereux who found similar results.

A routine trope in the media is that people who oppose lockdowns are pushing freedom and wealth over safety and health. But as we can see from this clean examination of the results, the open states experienced less economic pain and less pain from the disease itself.

Peak outrage

Did you know this is being spread legitimately by people who missed the watermark?

Unrelated: Coke is upset that your social media accounts aren't being censored enough.

I called a black guy the N-word" yesterday: Not-Employable.

Two years ago, David Cole noted that saying "nigger" is now an act of justifiable defiance.

Lamar specifically chose a white girl to come up on stage to perform with him. And he specifically chose “m.A.A.d. City” as the number to be performed. So, as requested, she began to recite the lyrics. And when she said “nigga,” Lamar stopped the show and publicly humiliated her, encouraging the audience to boo and insult her as he scolded her for doing exactly what he’d asked her to do. By the next day, the girl had been threatened and harassed off social media. That the woman in question is rotund and unattractive only made it worse, as she proved perfect grist for the meme mill.
Race aside, let’s focus on the unequal power dynamics at play here. A multimillionaire rapper humiliated, scolded, and whipped up a hate mob against an absolute nobody who wielded zero power in the situation. Remember the days when leftists claimed to side with the powerless and disenfranchised, regardless of race? But today’s media elites not only sided with Lamar, they actually applauded him for bullying the girl. Mind you, these same elites will no doubt extol the virtues of Spike Lee’s upcoming film BlaKkKlansman, which is filled with white actors saying “nigger.” Because those actors are just “playing a part.” But isn’t singing a song roughly the same thing? Does one actually have to be an American-born Vietnam vet to sing “Born in the U.S.A.”? I’ve karaoke’d to “Bohemian Rhapsody” more times than I can recall, but you know what? I’ve never actually killed a man in real life. What’s the difference between a white chick saying “nigga” while reading song lyrics at the request of the author, and a white guy in a Spike Lee film doing the same while reading from the script? In both instances, the whites are reciting the words of a black man at the request of the black man.

And if was true two years ago, it's easily 8x more true now, so it's even more important. You may note that, perhaps remembering reading this column when it first came out, I have been more aggressive both on this blog and in real life with saying "nigger". Because they tell us we aren't allowed to. And they don't get to decide that.


Doesn't that make you feel better?

In the #NiggerLivesMoreImportantThanSocietyMotherFucker era, I think we can mathematically express the new importance of speaking up by using the formula ex, where "x" is the number of years since an article talking about how important it is to speak up against censorship by saying something: since May 29 was 2 years and 1 month ago (2.0833 years), then e2.0833 = 8.03119499. That sounds about right.

Meanwhile, on L'Affaire Lamar Jeremy Helligar writes in Variety:
Even today, for many of us, when a white person utters the N-word, it’s like the sound of a whip slapping the back of a slave. Because of its loaded history, it will never be OK for white people to use the N-word (not even if it’s Eminem, though he inexplicably seems to get a pass from the hip hop community), no matter what the circumstance.
Well shit, if the mere word nigger to you is like a whip slapping the back a slave then let's just re-introduce both whips and slavery until you can figure out the difference, Jeremy.



Purportedly in order to allow for affirmative action (despite all the evidence it makes everybody worse off), California has proposed changing the State Constitution to allow racial discrimination.

If you think you read that wrong, you aren't alone. Jon Miltimore at the Foundation for Economic Education and Guy Birchall in RT both were equally credulous.

It's worth noting, of course, that a theoretical future California government could institute a "Black Lives Aren't Worth $10,000" bill mandating all employers cap black employees salaries at $9,999 per year and while it may fall afoul of federal regulations, if it happens to be in a state-regulated industry there will be no legal ability to block it through the courts.

Is this the "anti-racism" future they really want? Apparently so. As Miltimore puts it:
equality before the law is arguably the greatest pillar of a liberal society. It’s an idea that reaches back across time and civilizations, from philosophers like Guan Zhong (720 B.C. - 645 B.C.) to historians such as Thucydides, who at the funeral of Pericles stated, “If we look to the laws, they afford equal justice to all in their private differences; if to social standing, advancement in public life falls to reputation for capacity, class considerations not being allowed to interfere with merit; nor again does poverty bar the way.”

Equality before the law is at the heart of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the enumerated rights carved out by the General Assembly of the United Nations at its third session in 1948. In Article 7, it states clearly and proudly: "All are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to equal protection of the law.”

To abandon such a principle is to abandon a cornerstone of the Enlightenment and classical liberalism, one of the greatest individual rights that has protected individuals from arbitrary rule and government abuse for centuries.
Zhong? Thucydides? 1948???? All just tossed aside in the "dead white male equals bad" brainless paradigm of these idiots. The measure has to go onto a ballot, but whether or not it will be successful it's important to remember that it even got this far.

The Truth about Tamir Rice and Elijah McClain

Extremist activists behind #NiggerLivesMoreImportantThanSocietyMotherFuckers are now making a big deal about a couple old deaths.

One of them is Elijah McClain from Colorado who died while fighting with police who never drew their weapon.

The other is Tamir Rice, a 12 year old kid who was playing with a cap gun.

In the case of McClain, the first thing to remember is even though he hadn't committed a felony he was being questioned as he met the description of a suspicious person complaint: he was wearing a ski mask (it was in Colorado....in August) and waving his arms around. Upon being questioned he violently attacked the officers to such an extent that he knocked some of their body cameras off. The footage before his death showed he initiated the fight. No officers drew their guns: like George Floyd he seemed to have a drug problem as he was vomiting several times after the scuffle. He either died of an allergic reaction to the ketamine paramedics administered to sedate him (even when down he was extremely violent), or an asthma attack.

Rice, on the other hand, wasn't just playing with a cap gun: it had been illegally modified to resemble a real gun by removing the orange identification caps. He was pointing it at passerbys and then at officers with aggressive "I'm preparing to fire" body language such as lining up the sights and entering a stiffened stance. Additionally, and here's the next bit people don't know, Rice was 12 years old, but was 5'7" and 195 lbs, 3 pounds and 2 inches smaller than the average American 20 year old. Indeed, the photo below shows both the toy gun with the cap removed, and the real life Colt M1911 it was meant to emulate.

You may see "Colt M1911" on the top gun, but guess what? It's the fake. The point being that none of the defenses against this shooting hold water: he certainly wasn't a "little boy" and he was holding what appeared to be a legitimately lethal firearm.

In both the cases of McClain and Rice, the facts still support what has been the conservative position this whole time: there is no systemic racism causing blacks to be unfairly shot by police. Almost every case, once you hear the story about it, is about a violent nigger who behaved badly and died as a result of it. Unfortunately, the far-left keeps screaming this lie because of how effective it is: Colorado initiated a new witch hunt to try and endlessly search for a crime to charge the officers with in the McClain case (even though if there was any error it was the paramedic). The Tamir Rice case will be more difficult as the officers were already charged and a Grand Jury dropped them, but you know the #NiggerLivesMoreImportantThanSocietyMotherFuckers psychos will be braying for this.

Not entirely unrelated: As part of the general allegy to the truth these far-left activists are known for, one of the big pushers for this is Kristen Clarke, who has been leading the charge to get VDARE banned from the internet for the crime of speaking truth to her ugly group's power.

Queen of Blades

I had always known that Glynnis Talken Campbell had lost her job as Nancy Sarah Kerrigan's voice actor in the years between StarCraft and StarCraft 2.
Fans who attended BlizzCon last year or watched the Kerrigan reveal trailer on YouTube were overjoyed when Campbell's voice purred from the shadows towards the end of the clip, assuming that it signaled a return of the character's original voice. Sadly, this isn't so. According to Campbell, the voice work done in that trailer was considered an audition for the role, and Blizzard has decided to go in another direction.

Glynnis has now confirmed with StarCraft Legacy that Blizzard has red-lighted her reappearance as Sarah Kerrigan.
Well, it just figures, doesn't it? Blizzard just gave me my Dear John phone call. Basically, it was "We can still be friends—we just don't want to see you anymore." Ha ha! Ah well...that's showbiz. Anyway, thank you for a wonderful and touching article—it's a great going away present, and I'll cherish it.
Along with this sad news, it also seems that the original voice of Jim Raynor, Robert Clotworthy, will not be reprising his role in the sequel either, though Raynor's increased age and newly acquired drinking problem might have played a part in the new casting.
I had heard the rumour before that Campbell's increased age and cigarettes had been the reason for the switch. The Kotaku article claims it apparently applied to Clotworthy as well, however Clotworthy is the Raynor voice actor in both games.

In the GameFAQs article I linked to above user DSMobster quips:
They used her voice in an early trailer and it sounded fine.
Then they told her to **** off and got a new VA because they wanted to make sure that the voice was as stereotypical as her dialogue
GraniteOctopus follows up with:
simply put they put in tricia helfer because shes famous and stupid people want to do things to her.

For those wondering what things people would want to do with Tricia Helfer...

This day in (blog) history

Ten years ago today I compared Taylor Hall and Taylor Lautner.

So this is a good time to tell my Taylor Hall/Jason Strudwick story.

Years ago Martok and I were out drinking on Whyte Ave on weekend night, having a good time, drinking beers and crushing pussy, all that fun stuff. Anyways I think we were calling it an early night, it was sometime before 2am when we went to Funky Pickle for a bite of late night eating. As usual I waited until a good pizza came along (something with lots of meat and absolutely no artichoke hearts or creamed corn) so we were in there for a little longer than usual. On our way out Martok asked me if I'd noticed who was in the pizza place with us. It was Oilers 4th liner Jason Strudwick.

This is a live photo we took at the time. It has not been digitally altered.
We were walking past a smoker who informed us that Jason Strudwick had been inside Funky Pickle for hours hitting on everything with legs, and without success. It was a funny little story and we never would have thought anything of it except for what happened next. We continued westbound past the abandoned lot which is now the Raymond Block, and just after we passed the Tim Hortons (I can't remember if we passed Scotiabank or not) we came across this asian kid coming the other way. Mere minutes after finding out about Jason Strudwick unsuccessfully picking up fatties at the Funky Pickle, he excitedly tells us about other Oilers out and about:
I just saw Taylor Hall drive by in a limo and he had two hot blondes on either side of him!
Artists representation, obviously. Not a real photo.

You've perhaps heard of the old baseball adage that home run hitters drive Cadillacs and singles hitters drive Fords. This is the Edmonton Puckbunny version of that adage: Hart-candidate first liners get limos with blondes, 4th line grinders strike out at the Funky Pickle.


Might as well have kept the Red Ensign then...

The Post Millennial reports that a Halifax newspaper worries that putting a Canadian flag in their newspaper could upset people and warned them ahead of time.

I mean, I hate the Canadian flag and would never fly it, but it seems slightly bizarre that the left would sign onto the same thinking. Will they join me in flying the Alberta flag on Wednesday instead?

Tech bias? What tech bias?

Big Tech's far-left impulses take another step with Instagram ruling Christian pastors are "harmful to the community" in a way that leftists blathering about merely killing conservatives isn't.

Not possibly related to all the niggers looting their product

Nike reported a surprise loss.

A lot of this, of course, is falling out of the Wuhan Flu. But it's also partly a reminder that you can hire the woke man of the hour to be your spokesman and still lose out in the end: especially when you're being looted and never will sell a shoe to a Colin Kapernick fan ever again anyways.


"If your strength is small, don’t carry heavy burdens"

The Epoch Times is finding experts to pass judgment on the Three Gorges Dam.

Of course, if you ask the Chinese, this is a total lie and nothing to see here.

Apparently the dam is "elastic" and that its meant to be deformed.

Residential Schools were great, even if they weren't genocide

Helpful hint: Everything Paul Bunner wrote about Residential Schools is 100% correct.

What Bunner wrote:

Cardinal’s narrative contained all the elements that inform debates over Aboriginal policy today except the one that is the most powerful driver of guilt, grievance, power and money: the “holocaust” that was allegedly perpetrated against Aboriginal children through the Indian Residential Schools system.

It is odd that he overlooked it. In 1951, at age 6, Cardinal entered the Joussard Catholic residential school in Northern Alberta. He spent 10 years there before moving to a regular Catholic high school in Edmonton, where he graduated as class president. The Unjust Society devoted a chapter titled “The Little Red Schoolhouse” to excoriating residential schools for imposing Christian and European values on Aboriginal children. Cardinal even used the term “cultural genocide,” in what may have been its first coinage. However, he was strangely silent on the litany of horrors we now associate with the schools, including ghastly physical and sexual abuse, mass graves of unnamed children, tyrannical teachers and diabolical nutritional experiments. The worst abuse Cardinal recounted was “a misfit, has-been or never-was” teacher in Grade 8 who was so incompetent “I found myself taking over the class.”
he best that can be said of Harper’s apology is that it was a strategic attempt to kill the story and move on to a better relationship between Natives and non-Natives. Unfortunately, it only appears to have deepened the conviction that Church and State conspired not only to “kill the Indian in the child” but also to physically exterminate the whole race. The Aboriginal grievance and entitlement narrative continues to gather momentum, as evidenced by last year’s prolific Idle No More protests. And the $60-million Truth and Reconciliation Commission, far from working toward its stated objective of getting the whole story and then getting over it, appears wholly dedicated to the permanent entrenchment of a one-dimensional caricature of the history of residential schools.

The dangers in this ought to be obvious and can hardly be overstated. Already, vast swathes of the public education system are uncritically regurgitating the genocide story as if it were fact, thereby adding to the legions of Canadian voters who will be suckers for future Phil Fontaines and Harold Cardinals and their never-ending demands for more tax dollars and greater political autonomy. It will slow any progress on integration, democratic reform and financial transparency on reserves and do nothing to reduce the terrible social pathologies afflicting Indians on and off the reserves. Worse, if future generations of young Aboriginal people are indoctrinated in the belief that Canada wilfully tried to annihilate their ancestors, some of them, at least, will be ripe recruits for radical segregationist movements, perhaps even violent insurgencies as imagined in Douglas Bland’s frighteningly plausible 2010 novel Uprising, about Aboriginal terrorism in near-future Canada.
Context is also needed to refute the “intergenerational legacy” of residential schools. The idea that victimization of one generation automatically passes to their descendants defies human experience. If it were true, the survivors and descendants of the Nazi Holocaust would be humanity’s basket cases instead of a people who have prospered like few others. In the case of residential school students and their descendants, stories of the latter plundering the former suggest that the compensation payouts themselves may be a source of corrosive intergenerational strife.

Finally, we all need to acknowledge that what Prime Minister Harper said in a 2006 speech in London, England, about the history of Aboriginal relations in Canada was far truer than most of what he said in his 2008 apology. Invoking the colonial era, when Europeans of various stripes relentlessly butchered and oppressed aboriginal people elsewhere in the Americas, Africa and Asia, Harper noted, “[I]n the Canadian context, the actions of the British Empire were largely benign and occasionally brilliant ….The treaties negotiated with the Aboriginal inhabitants of our country, while far from perfect, were some of the fairest and most generous of the period.”

This was absolutely and unequivocally true. The British treated Natives in this country more benevolently than they did any other indigenous peoples within their empire. Canada inherited that legacy and maintained it, even as our neighbours south of the border continued to lynch blacks and slaughter Indians. The bogus genocide story of the Canadian Aboriginal residential schools system is an insult to all of us, Native and non-Native, dead or alive, who are justifiably proud of the peaceful, tolerant, pluralistic history and values of our great country. We should fight like hell to defend it from those who would corrupt it.

Mona Wang is a hysteric bitch

Over in BC, mentally ill Mona Wang is upset the police manhandled her during a wellness check:

According to a civil lawsuit, Wang’s boyfriend called 911 while Wang was in mental distress and asked for a health check.
Part of the interaction between Wang and the RCMP officer, Const. Lacy Browning, was captured on the building’s surveillance camera.

Video footage shows the student being dragged down the hallway by Browning.

In the civil claim, Wang states that Browning handcuffed her and dragged her down a hallway after finding her lying semiconscious on the bathroom floor, next to empty pill bottles.

The lawsuit also states that as a result of the incident, Wang suffered bruises to her face plus broken blood vessels in her left eye, a swollen right eye and bruising to her right temple.
The important part of this whole story is Wang's boyfriend called 911. Because the psycho bitch was being violent, presumably. Unlike in the States, we don't get to hear the 911 calls that would answer a lot of questions.

Which comes to the ultimate problem: the reason police have to show up for wellness checks is because these psychotic crazies like Mona Wang are dangerous. Hundreds of Mississauga Derka Derkas just finished protesting the death of a guy who was killed by police during a "wellness check" when he aggressively charged at them with a knife. There are calls to stop having police show up entirely, which is fine by me with a single caveat:

All Wellness Checks should be performed by unarmed far-left social workers. One at a time.

This would solve at least one problem! There still, unfortunately, is the problem that these mentally ill nutters with edged weapons can cause harm to the general populace. After all, that's why the police were being called into wellness checks anyways: paramedics and others who can provide care to these crazy people were in danger of dying. Since we've decided to make sure the far-left social workers get slaughtered first that will presumably resolve this issue. The next issue, then, is the homeless and crackheads who don't just fest in crazy by themselves and only lash out against the people who would help them, but instead are out in the streets threatening citizens and breaking into our homes and vehicles. Since apparently we don't want the police dealing with these people there's one other minor thing we need

Citizens should be allowed to own all manner of firearms and legally carry them in public both open and concealed, so that we can protect ourselves and perform impromptu "wellness checks" when we find them in the quonset.

With these two minor changes, I agree that the police should never be doing a "wellness check" or indeed dealing with the mentally ill ever again.

Happy birthday Robert Davi

So last night I was watching the RedLetterMedia review of The Last Dragon (featuring Macaulay Culkin) and Macaulay briefly started discussing the "classic" film The Goonies.

I watched I think half of The Goonies at a friend's place once and I don't have fond memories of it, so it's not really in my brain. Anyways the clip they showed clearly showed Robert Davi (Kohla from Stargate Atlantis) so I checked the IMdB page to confirm. And surprise surprise, today is Robert Davi's 69th birthday.

Also of note, Davi is a staunch conservative who endorsed George W. Bush (pbuh) and later Donald Trump. For some additional SciFi plus conservative linkage, in 2016 Robert Davi replaced Babylon 5's Jerry Doyle as the host of his syndicated radio show after his tragic death.

Trek beer

Hey remember back in the day when the "who would you like to drink a beer with" was going around? Well I thought I'd do one for Star Trek. We're talking actors here, not characters.

Who from each Trek series would you most want to drink a beer with? Pretend they're all still alive.

Star Trek: The Original Series
Easy choice here: James Doohan not only was a Canadian war hero who invested a sport but was by the far the most fun TOS cast member on the convention circuit.

Star Trek: The Next Generation
This is a tougher one. Both Michael Dorn and LeVar Burton offscreen were fun people to be around. Patrick Stewart and Wil Wheaton of course have their heads so far up their asses that you don't want to deal with them. Still, have to go with Jonathon Frakes.

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
This is absolutely the toughest series to decide this with. Obviously you'd want to sit at a bar with Nicole deBoer or Terry Farrel. Even Nana Visitor's boobs are still holding up with time pretty good. But as a nearly unavoidable rule you'd want to drink beer with a man and actually enjoy the company. Since DS9 has such a large recurring cast you might want to have a drink with Jeffrey Combs, J.G. Hertzler or even Robert O'Reilly. And we can't forget Mark Shepard, the rather enjoyable "actor" who played Morn. This time though it's Michael Dorn versus Colm Meany and this time I have to give it to Dorn. He's more laid back and enjoyable, Meany by all accounts is in real-life a bit of a prick (and a tad punchy when drunk).

Star Trek: Voyager
Robert Duncan McNeill, while more than a little on the nerdy side, is ultimately the only human being on that show. I don't mean the character either, I mean all the other actors seem slightly crazy. You might enjoy again a drink with Jeri Ryan (who has aged quite well) but it isn't for the camaraderie.

Star Trek: Enterprise
This is another tough one, and for the first time I have to give it to the series lead Scott Bakula, who's folksy real life persona is a little more appealing than Connor Trinneer, Bonus points again if you find yourself sitting next to Linda Park at a bar though.

Star Trek: Discovery
This is not a real Star Trek show and does not count.

Star Trek: Picard
This is not a real Star Trek show and does not count.

Not even remotely related: Other than #1, I don't think anybody can defend this list of "science fiction's greatest beverages. Romulan Ale (mentioned in at least three Star Trek movies and once as a plot point) is behind a Babylon 5 themed drink that is not mentioned in the episode nor mentioned on the infamous Lurker's page

Systemic racism in Canada

The NASCAR hate crime hoax

Editor's Note: I tried to get the "Sports" tag removed from this post as NASCAR is not really a sport but there seemed to be some sort of software glitch.

Conservative Treehouse provides a much more likely explanation for the "noose" incident than the mainstream media.

Lesson from this: diversity is a weakness and NASCAR should have remained whites-only. The one negro can't be worth all the bullshit you have to manage as a result.

Update, June 25 2020 9:42pm: Surprising nobody on the right but apparently everybody on the left, Bubba Wallace really is the next Jussie Smollett (though presumably minus the sodomy) as confirmed by the FBI investigating (including the photos Conservative Treehouse posted) and immediately determining there was no crime. It's worth noting it's been quite the week for fake nooses.

This is how these people live

Imagine cutting ties with your best friend because she was mean to somebody you never met.

This is the sick world that these woke people want to create. Can you imagine?

Last week influencer Sasha Exeter shared a series of unpleasant messages in which Jessica allegedly threatened to sue her - and the bitter controversy that followed led to the Canada-based mother-of-three being fired from her presenting role with CTV and her job with Good Morning America.

Speaking to Page Six, the source said: 'The white privilege row has really given Meghan the excuse she was waiting for to cut Jess off for good.

'I don't know what the tipping point was, but Jess has been on the outs for some time.

'Their friendship is definitely not what it was. And really, how can you have such a close friendship when one person is basically making a career out of the friendship?'

DailyMail.com exclusively revealed last week that Meghan had been left 'absolutely mortified' by Jessica's 'tone-deaf' threats to Sasha, and told close friends that she can 'no longer be associated with her'.

'Meghan is absolutely mortified that she's been dragged into this complete mess. She said Jessica is in no way a racist, but the way she handled the situation (with the fashion influencer) was tone-deaf and heartbreaking,' a close friend of Meghan's said.
What's "tone deaf"? That she dared to be aggressive to a negress?

If that's not allowed anymore, than get rid of every negress. If this is the world they want to create, a protected class that cannot be criticized, then they all need to be removed from our society. Starting with the woman who spoiled a Prince.


"They're like children really--get 'em in a big group, fill them with firewater, it's like tossing a cigarette in a powderkeg"

Lest you think that the modern era of pretending racial violence only works one-way and "peaceful protests" can be characterized by violence, think again.

In January 2003 Colby Cosh wrote about a curious attack on the Edmonton LRT system...

The Edmonton police are still investigating a New Year's Day incident on the subway in which a crowd of Indian youths randomly antagonized, attacked, and beat five white teenagers. But they've made up their mind about at least one thing: no hate here!
Edmonton police admitted Tuesday they may have been "a little premature" to conclude an attack by a group of native teens on five white teenagers on the LRT was racially motivated. ...Police originally described the incident as a racially motivated attack by about 30 native teens on white teenagers. Now, however, police say there were only about five teens involved in the attack and there is no firm evidence that racism was a factor.
But look a little closer at the story--you'll have to. It is still undisputed that the five victims were outnumbered by a group of at least 15 native Indians who entered the train together. Police spokesman Wes Bellmore wants us to state and accept that only five of the Indian kids were "involved in the attack" because they were the only ones doing the actual physical attacking. If you stand around intimidating other passengers who might have come to the aid of the victims (which they notably did not), well, that's not "involvement", apparently.
Funny enough, when it's police officers not involved in putting a knee on a criminal's neck it doesn't seem quite so benign to the press does it?

Well at least one thing has changed since 2003. Apparently not much else has.
And what of this "lack of racial motivation"? Are the police saying that no one in the mob of attackers shouted "Let's fuck up these white bitches," as was reported previously? No indeed.
"Racial comments that were reportedly uttered by someone in the group of attackers cannot be attributed to any one person," police spokesman Wes Bellmore said...
By this standard, if someone shouts "Hang the nigger" and an all-white crowd responds with a lynching, there's no "racial motivation" involved unless you can "attribute" the original battle cry to "any one person"
But of course, equal opportunity and fairness is never part of their repertoire is it?

Most of Cosh's concern though was the rest of the story, that the fact the jackpine savages were also drunk was being excused away by the cops. That too rings awfully familiar, drunk Red Indians expecting a free pass from both police and media is also a familiar story in 2020.

Flashback: You might be confusing this 2003 story with the 2018 story where there were swarming sprees along the LRT line. Also, previous discussion of the LRT and it's role in Edmonton crimes can be found here.

COVID Trudeau


Wuhan Flu means an end to immigration

This discussion about a new poll talking about immigration spurred a reminder in my brain about how Canada's immigration policy will need to be obliterated and our borders permanently closed to new arrivals. The rationale for this comes from one J.Trudeau of Montreal. You may be moderately familiar with him.

As you may be dimly aware, levels of government all over the world have broken private enterprise into two basic categories: essential and non-essential. While how they actually break these categories up is almost always hamfisted and illogical, the theory at least is that we have to keep some things open so that people can stay alive. Even if the Wuhan Flu had a 90% death rate, you'd still need to keep grocery stores and power plants open: you can't live without food. Back in March (remember March?) when we were told the shutdown was only going to be two weeks (3 tops!) this rationale made sense.

In the long-run, every business is essential.

Over a long enough timespan, however, there are no unessential businesses: every business is essential. By which I mean that if the company didn't exist to provide people with a good or service that they wanted or needed, it wouldn't be there in the first place. The "wanted" versus "needed" in that previous sentence may have you thinking we're back to essential and nonessential, but remember that in our modern economy the consumer is only half of the equation. The producer (by which I mean both the entrepreneurs and the employees) are the other half of the equation: the importance to this company to them has nothing to do with what the good or service actually is. The only thing producers care about is that the company makes money which can then be redirected to them. To keep their expected lifestyle up, to allow them to be consumers in their own right, put food on the table...doesn't that last one sound awfully, I dunno...essential?

So yes, in the long run every business is indeed "essential". Which brings us back to the words of one J.Trudeau of Montreal: I don't know why it's important to listen to him, but apparently it is:

“This will be the new normal until a vaccine is developed.” He said the reality of Canadians dealing with COVID-19 through the summer was one of the “better” outcomes. “The path we take is up to us. It depends on what each of us does right now. It will take months of continued, determined effort,”
Just until there's a vaccine, eh? So mid-2021 then? Or later? Like, much later? Like possibly never?

Well if the "new normal" means businesses can't reopen, then what we're essentially saying is that a huge proportion of the Canadian workforce is not necessary. When you deal with unemployment figures you generally have to balance the inefficiencies of the job market (people who can't be matched up with ideal jobs) and the general health of the economy (there aren't enough jobs for the people who want them). In this case, the latter issue is by far the dominant one. This means immigration must go.

Immigration, from a purely economic standpoint, both brings in new workers that have found ideal jobs to be matched into, and also bring in money and growth for more jobs to be created. However the COVID lockdowns have made both arguments nonsensical: most ideal jobs are nonessential, and so are most jobs that are going to be created. The government has already artificially induced a massive labour surplus, and immigration is not legally allowed to increase the demand that would help bring it down. Once you've already decreed that a large chunk of your population is "useless" (which, frankly, they are when their employers cannot be open) what's your motivation for bringing more people in? From a labour market perspective Canada is now not only full it is in fact overflowing: if only "essential" businesses are required than Canada has far more people than it needs, and as a result the Shiny Pony must ban all immigration until at least 3 months after a vaccine for COVID-19 is widely distributed.

A departing Alberta Liberal senator says opponents of the Kyoto accord never mention the fact that, if there is a loss of jobs in Canada from the environmental deal, it will be suffered by immigrants -- not "blue-eyed" Canadians.

Senator Nick Taylor, who reaches the mandatory retirement age of 75 on Sunday, said the rate of immigration in the country will simply have to be adjusted downward if Kyoto opponents are correct in their predictions that 300,000 to 400,000 jobs will not be created in the next 10 years because of the accord.

"Little blue-eyed Canadian boy is not going to be unemployed by Kyoto. Who may not be employed is his grandchild, or the immigration rate will have to be adapted to the jobs we are creating, as time goes on, which we do now," said the outspoken senator.
