Steynianism 165

“In the world it is called Tolerance, but in hell it is called Despair, the sin that believes in nothing, cares for nothing, seeks to know nothing, interferes with nothing, enjoys nothing, hates nothing, finds purpose in nothing, lives for nothing, and remains alive because there is nothing for which it will die.”

Dorothy Sayers ~

Saith Binks!

A new feature of particular items which all pre-dead minions must consider as commands, and/ or walking-orders. Or.. um– more as suggestions, really. If that’s OK with you.

(A) THE REV. Stephen Boissoin now has a FreeMarkSteyn slot under Ezra’s. He needs donations to support his appeal against the AHRC ruling forbidding his freedom of speech. All Christians and people of good will should consider supporting him.

(2) The RIGHT GIRL needs some donations, amd a job, y’all: A hard post to write– “I am now without means. Totally flat broke. A little advertising here on GOTR, and some temp work, but it’s not paying the bills. Any bills. And the rent is well past due.” Now.

(c) WHAT’S THAT? You want a little whole lot more joy in your life? Then join FreeMarkSteyn reader John M., who recently and generously sent along Defying Rome, Michael Yon’s Moment of Truth In Iraq, along with Andrew McCarthy’s new Willful Blindness to the BinkBunker/ WebElf HQ. Join the joy! Share the crazy-extreme satisfaction of knowing that you personally are aiding and abetting the edutainment of the Binks, his own self! Say thanks today with a little something to your fave blogger of all things FreeSpeechy …. (

(iv) Father’s Day is coming: give thanks to Our Heavenly Father, our earthly fathers, grandfathers, and father-figures, who (despite the societal hate on over the optionality of fatherhood) mostly faithfully soldier on without too much drama. F-D Props to the Binky-Dad, who is also the father of much of my hateful but thoughtful conservativism.

The Mark

~ MARK STEYN is a stupid poopy-head, or something like that: “CAJ stance in Maclean’s case questioned” …. (scaramouche)

~ SPANISH PUNDIT weighs in – Mark Steyn: a hilarious process …. (

~ SCARYMUSH— No peaceful easy feelin’: The Eagles are coming to town and, well, I just couldn’t resist having a go at what may well be their signature song …. (scaramouche)

In a dark, airless courtroom, no breeze anywhere,
Rank smell of the seated rising up though the air.
Up ahead in the distance, I saw three serious ‘roos.
They cleared their throats and looked straight ahead.
They had a job to do.
There they sat at a table, and I could quickly tell
The next few days here were shaping up to be a Vancouver version of hell.
Then they started the hearing, and it got underway.
There were bloggers blogging furiously.
I thought I heard them say…

Welcome to the courtroom kangaroo-an.
Such a dreadful place, such a dreadful place.
No freedom of speech at the courtroom kangaroo-an.
Any time of year, you won’t find it here.

Their minds are “human rights”-addled, they full of sanctimony.
They got a lot of petty, petty rules meant for you and for me.
How they prance in the courtroom, ‘roos on a tear.
In their republic of virtue, there’s no “hate” anywhere.

So I researched McNaughton,
Looked up her previous words:
Tranny deprived of the “right” to a job–a ruling strictly for birds.
And still her judgements are backed by BC’s HRT.
Any “wisdom” is so hard to find; no kind of Solomon, she.

Welcome to the courtroom kangaroo-an.
Such a dreadful place, such a dreadful place.
No freedom of speech at the courtroom kangaroo-an.
Any time of year, you won’t find it here.

Coat of arms in the background, makes things look legit.
And she said, “You are all just prisoners here, of the ‘rights’ racket.
It’s like a Soviet chamber, where they punish the bold.
So ‘fess up now, try to look contrite,
And please do as you’re told.”

Last thing I remember, I was running for the door.
I had to find the passage back to the way things were before.
“Relax,” said the lefties, “and do as you should.
It’s best to jettison the impulse to speak, for the greater good.”

In a nutshell, he said that the Charter would apply if the alien first became a Canadian citizen. His response betrayed an ignorance of the Charter, given that several of its provisions apply even to those lacking Canadian citizenship.” In other news, does Canada’s Charter protect conservatives? Aboriginal Canadians? People who aren’t staffers of the HRC? …. (
