Steynian 260

~ HOT OFF THE PRESS! Hurray! It’s ‘The Tyranny Of Nice’ Day! Binks has read it, and thinks it’s great, and bloody important to spread far & wide. Get some today– send e-copies to your elected representatives: it’ll be the best $10 you ever donated to a politician. Let’s make Soharwardy & Elmasry pay for their own copies. And thanks for the mentions in the book, guys. Remember– It’s The Tyranny of Nice: How Canada crushes freedom in the name of human rights — and why it matters to Americans. ~

~ A PROUD AGGREGATOR AGGREVATOR! When– for various reasons– you have less present skill in word-smithing, one thing you can do is collect the words and thoughts of better writers in one place. The Binks has spent his online life (1995-present in webbing) mostly throwing info and news at the wall, and hoping some sticks; and to let people read ORIGINAL links, as opposed to my own highly suspect and tiresome opinions. Regular blogging is all about the opinions of the blogger– well, people know mine, and I occasionally state them, but the opinions of the bigger and betters are just of more interest (mind you, I still preach a meaner sermon then many can). We’re just so glad all those amazing people are around. Also, this new media circumvents the old media and societal narrative that our elites are on about: may be they are right on some things– but not as much as they think– and there’s always room for improvement, reform, whistle-blowing, and defending our freedom against complacency and from would-be tyrants. It’s just so important to keep the pressure up, even when the HRCites and such think we’d all have packed up our toys and gone home, so they could continue their shenanigans uninterrupted. Let’s all keep kicking ass and taking names, people! ~

Somebody’s Watching You!

~ GOT HALLMARKS? The CHRC is looking for you! By these satndards, any criticism of the HRC could well be hate-speech …. (chrt-tcdp.gc.ca)

[70] In Warman v. Kouba, 2006 CHRT 50, the Tribunal set out a non-exhaustive list of eleven hallmarks of hate messages, accompanied by an elaboration of on each of the hallmarks. These
hallmarks are the following:
(1) The Powerful Menace Hallmark: the targeted group is portrayed as a powerful menace that is taking control of the major institutions in society and depriving other of their livelihoods, safety,
freedom of speech and general well-being;
(2) The True Story Hallmark: the messages use true stories, news reports, pictures and reference from purportedly reputable sources to make negative generalizations about targeted group;
(3) The Predator Hallmark: the targeted group is portrayed as preying upon children, the aged, the vulnerable, etc.;
(4) The Cause of Society’s Problems Hallmark; the targeted group is blamed for the current problems in society and the world;
(5) The Dangerous or Violent by Nature Hallmark: the targeted group is portrayed as dangerous or violent by nature;
(6) The No Redeeming Qualities Hallmark: the messages convey the idea that members of the targeted group are devoid of any redeeming qualities and are innately evil;
(7) The Banishment Hallmark: the messages communicate the idea that nothing but the banishment, segregation or eradication of this group of people will save others from the harm being done by this group;
(8) The Sub-human Hallmark: the targeted group is de-humanized through comparisons to and associations with animals, vermin, excrement, and other noxious substances;
(9) The Inflammatory Language Hallmark: highly inflammatory and derogatory language is used in the messages to create a tone of extreme hatred and contempt;
(10) The Trivializing or Celebration of Past Tragedy Hallmark: the messages trivialize or celebrate past persecution or tragedy involving members of the targeted group;
(11) The Call to Violent Action Hallmark: calls to take violent action against the targeted group.

You bin warned.

Lest We Forget: On Free Speech

“Human rights commissions, as they are evolving, are an attack on our fundamental freedoms and the basic existence of a democratic society… It is in fact totalitarianism. I find this is very scary stuff.”

Stephen Harper, 1999

FreeSpeechers

“In London last week, a frightful warning was sounded about encroaching tyranny. At an important conference, speaker after impassioned speaker warned of the peril to Western values posed by freedom-devouring sharia — the Islamic legal code. Like all tyrannies, sharia’s first target is speech: Suppress all examination of Muslim radicalism by threats of prosecution and libel actions, and smugly call it “the rule of law.” But we may already be further gone than the London conferees feared. And without resort to the Islamicization that so startled them. For that, we can thank the campaign of Barack Obama.”
