Steynian 289

“Right now, it’s Keith Martin, Professor Moon, The Globe & Mail, The National Post, PEN Canada, the Canadian Association of Journalists, Salman Rushdie, Richard Dawkins, Noam Chomsky and 99.5 per cent of the Conservative Party vs Jennifer Lynch, Bernie Farber and Lucy Warman.”

~ Mark Steyn ~

~ MILLIONS OF TAXPAYER dollars, hundreds upon hundreds of thousands of personal legal fees, endless controversy and thoughtful comment on the web, in the media, in Parliament, and across the world (not just Canada, mind), an RCMP investigation, and internal review.. it’s all ‘popcorn’? Bravo, Mizz Lynch! A moment of applause for a bureaucratic actor playing a scene! In reality her whole department stands under a cloud, and her own rule of same not exactly a textbook example of impartiality in pursuit of the common good.

R-R-Ready To R-R-Rumble?

So now begins the real fight, as even the sternly-edited-by-her Moon Report hits like a torpedo. Will the SS Lynch’s Place In History sink? Will her quest for Utopia-To-Come be delayed? We’re not dealing with yer typical bureaucratical corner-office type, here. Whatever her roots or what she does of a Sunday morning, she’s a self-declared Utopian. This is the ultimate battle for good and evil, and she’s good. We bloggers are witting or unwitting enemies of Utopia, aiding and abetting hate, a worser Canuckistan, violence, chaos, rioting, and bad manners. So expect a cornered and angry Utopian-fight, not a pillow-fight.

Take Back The Fight

We have to play this on all levels, as she is: media, political, and– using our unique web-powers, through fact-checking and past evidence and such. She’s acting like an MP or CabMin, not a bureaucrat under a department under a cabmin under a cabinet under a PM and government. She’s not the boss, here. Keep writing, commenting, get your facts straight, and talk to your elected representatives, with copies to the Minister in question,a s well to Rob Nicholson and the PM’s Office. And keep speaking out in public, telling people about the fight, and talking in the media, writing on websites, and understanding the nature and details of the battle. And..


This is Our fight. We are They. She Is Not The Boss Of Us, however much she conceives of herself as our better, our Utopian leader, a deputy messiah for the perfect progressive age just within reach, if only we trust her. To be fair, she’s a talented lady with a great CV— if only the current HRC mentality and structure wasn’t such a temptation to overstep the bounds.

Baby Poop!

Popcorn?!? Poppycock! Don’t hand us another sludgy diaper full of the same old stuff, and expect us all to be humbly thankful, and please, Mizz, can we have some more? Richard Moon’s report was your political and personal chance to reel in and ease back, to apologize, to know your proper limits, and to make it right. Apparently, you no longer see yourself as subject to the normal limits, being the heroical Utopia-queen and deputy saviour of the coming Canada. Good to know, Jennifer: the rest of us will operate likewise.

We’ve been warned.

Le rapport a été rédigé par Richard Moon, éminent spécialiste en droit constitutionnel. Moon recommande d’abroger l’art. 13 de sorte que la Commission et le Tribunal canadien des droits n’aient plus à traiter de propagande haineuse. Celle-ci doit continuer d’être interdite en vertu du Code criminel, mais cette interdiction doit se limiter aux formes d’expression qui préconisent ou justifient la violence, ou qui contiennent des menaces de violence. 24 novembre, par Annie Lessard, Marc Lebuis ….
