~ MACLEAN’S to OHRC Inquisitor Barbara Hall— “The OHRC code of ethics requires Barbara Hall to perform her duties in a manner that is “neutral, fair to all parties, free from repriasal,” that she will be “conscientious and respectful of all members of the public,” and that she “shall be, and shall be perceived to be, neutral and without bias in her duties, in their decisions, and in their judgement.” — “The editors of Maclean’s denounced Hall and her staff for the “zealous condemnation of their journalism”, but also every human rights commission in the country for “morphing out of their conciliatory roles to become crusaders working to reshape journalistic discourse in Canada.” Maclean’s wrote that Ms. Hall’s press release was “a drive-by smear,” and “perhaps the greatest disappointment in this whole saga.” Responding directly to the OHRC’s claim that Maclean’s is “xenophobic”, “destructive”, “Islamophobic” and “promoting prejudice,” Maclean’s editors wrote that: “[Hall] cited no evidence, considered no counter-arguments, and appointed herself prosecutor, judge and jury in one fell swoop. If we weren’t tolerant and charitable people, we’d be calling for her resignation.” …. (, wiki)

First they came for the neo-aryans–
but we know what they’re like.
Then they came for the religious folks–
they always were a bother.
Then the homophobes, bigots, and conservatives–
and a very good riddance!
Then they came for the journalists–
that was a bit creepy.
Then they came for the gays–
whoa.. what’s with that?
Just a minute:
I have to get the door….

Binks, with apologies.
