Hell Age Looms for Canada

We rejoiced in 2013 when Canada’s Parliament repealed the infamous Section 13 of its “Human Rights” Act. Section 13, with its open-ended definitions and murky language, made it open season on anyone who said or wrote anything that any member of any Cherished Minority in Canada found “offensive” for any reason, no matter how ridiculous.

But that was when the Conservative Party was in charge. Now, with leftid superman Justin Trudeau in the driver’s seat, the new Parliament has proposed to amend the Criminal Code to bring back all the  bad old days of Section 13–and then some.

With one important difference.

Under the old regime, all they could do to you was use the “human rights” tribunal to perpetually harass you, and ruin you through colossal legal fees.

Now they propose to chuck you into prison for two years if you say or write anything that “promotes hatred,” whatever that means, or is “offensive to the community,” whatever that means ( http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/2016/05/24/anti-transgender-speech-will-get-two-years-canada/ ).

Note: this protection from ever being offended, challenged, or disagreed with will not extend to every Canadian citizen. Ordinary persons will not have this protection: only members of Canada’s Cherished Minorities, including transgender whaddayacallums. If you are a white Christian man or woman who is sexually normal and morally upright, anyone can say anything to you, write anything about you, abuse you to his heart’s content–and you just have to suck it up.

This is what happens when leftids come to power. They loath and despise ordinary normal people. They hate all forms of decency. That’s why they always try to criminalize it.

Will Son of Trudeau get this wicked measure passed, or will Canada come to its senses in time?

Unless, of course, this kind of soft-core Stalinism is really what Canada wants.

And please don’t think, even for a minute, that Democrats wouldn’t want to do this to America. They’d do it this afternoon, if they thought they had the votes.

Canadian Town Bans ‘4’

I don’t know how this glittering gem of silliness got past me this spring, but here it is now: the town of Richmond Hill, Ontario, a suburb of Toronto, has banned the number 4 from new street addresses (see http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2013/05/31/richmond-hill-bans-number-four-tetraphobia_n_3368213.htm ). Furthermore, the town council is under pressure to change existing street addresses to get rid of the offending numeral, and there is some speculation that telephone numbers could be next.

Why are they doing this? What’s wrong with the number 4?

It seems Richmond Hill has a large Chinese population; and in the Chinese language (Mandarin, Cantonese), the word for “four” is szu, and the word for “dead” or “death” is szu: and so there is a superstition that 4 is a very unlucky number. Actually, a Chinese speaker would be able to distinguish between the two. Nevertheless, there is a superstition.

Now, Chinese civilization has had how many thousands of years to think of some other word for “four” or “dead”? Why haven’t they bothered to do so? Were they waiting all this time for some multicultural lackwits in Canada to solve the problem by banning the number 4?

And you want people like this to be in charge of your health care?

Really–what happens if they get another influx of immigrants from some other place: say, people from the River Shribble who want the town to ban the number 2 because it sounds like the word for crab lice in their language? And is it only going to be minorities of a certain percentage of the population who’ll be so accommodated? Like, how is that fair to the one lonely guy from Mongo who can’t tell “beer” from “bier”? Why should his superstition be disrespected, just because there’s only one of him?

Government by dopes and flibbertygibbets, I promise you, is not going to turn out well.
