Warman Goes To War, Man

Oh-h-h No You Don’t!
Richard Warman, Canada’s own answer to Montgomery Burns and the Ultraviolent droog Alex from A ClockWork Orange has finally emerged from his various bolt-holes and issued legal harrassments against some of Canada’s leading lights in the fight for freedom of expression. No word if he’s going after Steyn, too, or if his minions are lying in wait to pie Mark on his next public appearance in Canuckistan, Where The Inquisitors roam wild and free.
If this is another legal version of “throw the bomb when the market is full of innocent bystanders” kind of Maximum Disruption, then we might speculate that Little Ricky might be part of the defense of his special friends at the beleaguered CHRC; a low-blow against a winning opponent; a timely and upsetting distraction in order to recapture some lost initiative and momentum and news-share; a time for mud-flinging and legal wrestling; in short, maxiumum disruption.
Good people usually try to maximize the good, the blessing, the effect of a good thing, event, act, or policy to the widest possible audience. Gollum Warman operates in exactly the opposite way, by his own proud admission: spread the steaming chicken-manure around, so everybody gets a little eye-watering splatter.
And where Richard lurks, Warren is not far away. The good news? This isn’t an HRC tribunal, but big-boy court, with real rules, evidence, judges, and law. Not exactly Warman’s home-court.
Meanwhile, the Jihadis are thankful: just ask yourself who they are rooting for in the upcoming court-battles, and you will know who is on the side of light, if not the angels.
Here at The WebElf Report-FMS, we pray for our friends, under seige; and for enemies like Richard and Warren, and pray that they and we can be delivered from all error, malice, and unlove, that we may yet stand together in the fight for WesternCiv which is still raging around us, even with this latest distractiion. In the midst of this latest phase of the battle, let’s absorb the wisdom of recent remarks by The Anchoress:
How often we sin by simply, brusquely trodding over the humanity of the stranger, or the person we love, because we are so intent on whatever has captured our mind of a moment. We “eat each other up, like bread” which we consume carelessly and voraciously. We “throw each other away,” and not only in those big ways – abortion, euthanasia, or in “shutting away” the sick or inconvenient, but in the small ways, too. We ignore each other. We push aside. We pounce. We pressure. We scold. We think of other people as things, or as means to an end. We render each other meaningless, into ghosts and shadows, and we do it all day long. I do it.
Mind you, we’re also praying another bit of the Bible, too: May they fall into the selfsame trap which they have dug for others to fall into.
Call us prophetical if you want, but the WebElf Predictions Division think this new chapter will sooner or later generate even more media-coverage for FreeSpeechers; more misery for the HRCs, Warman & Co.; and a bigger can of Whoop-Ass than they can handle.
We’ll be here.
