Steynian 269

~ SO WHAT’S DIFFERENT, now, rather than before the verbose and lame Steyn ‘verdict’? Nada. Zip. Zilch. Zero. Nuffin’.

Some faint-hearts and get-alongs may imagine this is proof the system works, we’re all safe, back to sleep on this issue, now. You know, now that Section 13.1 of the Human Rights Act has been deleted, mass lay-offs and restructuring has happened at the national and provincial levels of these commissions, and the Justice Minister has had a thorough review of the abuses and excesses of the HRC process, and made sure through new legislation that the left-wing and anti-Christian bias is removed, and that no more punishing faux-tribunal law-circuses ever consume the time and finances of an unfairly accused Canadians ever again. Together with the threat of the accuser having to bear all costs in the cases of unjust or frivolous claims, it’s all good now. Richard Warman? Curbed. Jennifer Lynch & Co.? Reined in. Barbara Hall? Fired & replaced with a fair-minded OHRC chair. there’s everything still to be done. ~

~ PAMELA GELLER has it right: we have to keep creating our own media, building on blogs, good journalism, online video. Lefty media has its uses, but must be circumvented, left behind, or ignored when they try to shape, mutate, and hide the entire and balanced spectrum of news and opinion. FreeMarkSteyn! Free Canuckistan! is a little piece of that future. Enough whining about bias and acting all surprised when we keep bumping into liberal reality– if we’re not willing to provide an alternative, no matter how thankless, non-enriching, or endless it may be, then we’re not serious about our love for truth and freedom. Conservative donors must step up and support bloggers and new media folks, to provide the alternative and balance we need. ~

The Clash Ask The Question…


.. and you all provided the answer!

~ THANKS TO ALL THE bloggers and readers who’ve thoughtfully and kindly weighed in on the ‘Blog on or Not?’ issue: your words of encouragement make it less of a drudge, and more of a fun thing again. Free Canuckistan is my answer: the same labour of love for FreeSpeechers far and wide.. with that touch of Christianist theocratical extremism to keep it saucy. The same old url of FreeMarkSteyn obtains, however. ~

~ DAVID WARREN ON HARPER: “He has glibly avoided the crucial issue of the suppression of free speech and press by “human rights” kangaroo courts and the like”; and on the Untied States: “in the United States, especially in the present election, we get glimpses of two political solitudes that have been created not by any plausible socio-economic division within society, nor by any deep division between different ethnic tribes, but tautologically by the notion of “two solitudes” itself. The nation is divided, roughly half-and-half, between people who instinctively resent the Nanny State, and those who instinctively long for its ministrations. And every kind of specious racial, economic, cultural and class division has been thrown into the mix to add to its toxicity” …. (Dw)

(scaramouche)

~ ROGER KIMBALL: “Now for a moment of shameless self-promotion”.. the improved third edition of his book Tenured Radicals: How Politics Has Corrupted Our Higher Education is just out. Saith Binkz: I’ve enjoyed reading Kimball’s book Rape Of The Masters: he’s smart, funny, but very clear and non-Ph.D.-snooty in his writing style. This new book is for everybody , of course, but especially for professors, students, and parents wondering how all that tuition is being spent, and for what. There are good schools and great profs still out there, but it takes some hunting, asking, reading up to find them. This is post-Fascist wave 3.0 in North America and Europe, and much of academe is still radical, anti-Western, politically correct and into brainwash and indoctrination with anti-conservativism and agnosticism, not education and wisdom. Kimball rocks, and is Steyn-Approved: get some today! …. (Various)

~ OUR MODERN SPIRITUAL ILLNESSES: “False Apology Syndrome is a way of judging others to avoid judging ourselves–of shrugging moral responsibility. It fosters a perpetrator-victim mentality: “For what can I do wrong to compare with the wrongs that my ancestors suffered at the hands of your ancestors? How dare you even mention it, you hypocrite!” For that matter, what could I do wrong to compare with the wrongs my ancestors committed? I must say, it’s a reassuring mode of thought. But as Dalrymple makes sure to add, “I am, of course, sorry if you disagree.” …. (ft)
