~ GO & DO— “The CHRC has mounted a Kamikaze effort to defend the odious Section 13 (1). It is imperative that we ask those organizations who support 13 (1)’s repeal to seek Intervenor Status in the upcoming judicial review of Warman v. Lemire .
Do your bit, write the organizations listed below, where appropriate ask if they plan to seek official status at the judicial review, offer to assist if at all possible with a donation. Nag Harper, nag Nicholson nag your MP, nag the members of the Justice Committee. Send a letter to the editor of your local daily, or write your favourite columnist.
This is your fight, take a swing and make it count for Free Speech. Let our opponents know that we will not negotiate and we will not beg for what is rightfully ours.” ~

~ ITEM: If you value free speech … then get on over to BCF and do your part
~ UNTO THE BUNKERS… Whether or not (as rumour has it) Ms. Jennifer Lynch is a Conservative, she’s acting like a radical, and a last-ditch tyrant. Like a raging Hitler in the bunker, she seems to be fulminating against her mostly impecunious peasant opponents, while perhaps hoping for a Librano rescue, a UN intervention, or some radical legal consensus amongst her censorious peers, to save the CHRC bacon.
All this energy expended, instead of using it to call for reform inside the organization. Instead of using the good will and energy of people to push for a better CHRC, she apparently seeks more and worse of the same old– if recent events are anything to go by.
Looks like teh nice will not work on Der CHRCfuhrer bunker. Fine.
You’re a mean one, Mrs. Lynch.
You really are a heel.
You’re as cuddly as a cactus,
You’re as charming as an eel.
You’re a bad banana
With a greasy black peel.
You’re a monster, Mrs. Lynch.
Your heart’s an empty hole.
Your brain is full of spiders,
You’ve got garlic in your soul.
I wouldn’t touch you, with a
thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole.
You’re a vile one, Mrs. Lynch.
You have termites in your smile.
You have all the tender sweetness
Of a seasick crocodile.
Given the choice between the two of you
I’d take the seasick crocodile.
You’re a foul one, Mrs. Lynch.
You’re a nasty, wasty skunk.
Your heart is full of unwashed socks
Your soul is full of gunk.
The three words that best describe you,
are, and I quote: “Stink. Stank. Stunk.”
You’re a rotter, Mrs. Lynch.
You’re the queen of sinful sots.
Your heart’s a dead tomato splot
With moldy purple spots,
Your soul is an appalling dump heap overflowing
with the most disgraceful assortment of deplorable
Mangled up in tangled up knots.
You nauseate me, Mrs. Lynch.
With a nauseous super-naus.
You’re a crooked jerky jockey
And you drive a crooked horse.
You’re a three decker sauerkraut and toadstool sandwich..
With arsenic sauce! ~
Living In Aggressive Denial
~ ITEM: Another McMaster student is one of the 17 men and youths accused of plotting a bombing campaign in downtown Toronto
~ ITEM: American author and award-winning journalist Dr. Paul L. Williams is being hauled into a Canadian court over allegations he made about al-Qaida terrorists at an Ontario university. Williams is being sued by McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, over his claims that Islamic terrorists stole 180 pounds of nuclear material from the school’s nuclear reactor. The defense fund for Paul will be called the “The Paul L. Williams Defense Fund“, to help Dr. Williams fight the lawsuit McMaster University
~ ITEM: McMaster has harbored leading al Qaeda operatives, including Adnan el-Shukrijumah, Jaber A. Elbaneh, Abderraouf Jdey, and Amer el-Maati. When the operatives left McMaster, 180 pounds of nuclear material was reported missing. The story of the missing waste was first reported by John Loftus of WABC News on November 7, 2003
~ ITEM: One-Man “Dirty Bomb” Cell Sought in US and Canada
~ ITEM: GOOGLE– “McMaster, 180 pounds of nuclear material“
~ ONCE UPON A TIME– like many Canadian universities– McMaster of Hamilton, Ontario, was a religious foundation: partly about spreading the faith, and learning the truth and all that pre-modern stuff.
Secularization took place for most of these institutions, and with varying results. As detailed over at Canucki Jihad, some Canadian Universities are now hotbeds– or at least warm beds– for Islamism, pro-Jihad activities, stealth jihad, and much more. With the YorkU SockPuppets, we’ve seen how teh liberal stupid overlaid Muslim grievances leads to legal activism; and how anti-Jew/ Israel activity is rife.
It was news a 6 years ago, that McMaster had some jihadi-minded volk buzzing about their research reactor, and some possibly like-minded profs and students involved. That’s on the public record. A couple of the students– and some of the faculty, perhaps– were very very bad scary people.
Now in true HRC liberal fashion, McMaster is apparently getting on their high moral horse, and insulting an American guy, because he repeated common knowledge that was in the news years back. Insults, denial, “Racism!”, and “Ooo, look at the crazy man!” spin-doctoring and other hilarity ensues. For you university types who like big/ old words, that would be argumentum ad hominem, or attacking the man, instead of the actual issue or argument at hand. Shouldn’t security trump university bureaucracy?
There’s some real questions here: any grain of truth? What did McMaster do when the former news-items warned them? Are they cognisant of Islamist/jihadist-connected people or groups operating on or connected with campus? Does the pro-Jihad/ Terror/ Muslim Brotherhood MSU ring a bell? Is the reactor security world-class, and super-safe?
Yelling “You’re a poopy-head!” to protect an institution may make mafia-sense, but not local, regional, national or international security sense. As holders of a dangerous technology, McMaster owes Hamliton, Ontario, Canada, and the world a full accounting on the matter, not guilty-seeming yelling and lawsuiting to try and silence someone.
In one sense, such possibilities do seem crazy, and lifted from a movie– but that’s before you check out the web of highly committed Islamist groups and Muslim Brotherhood fellow travellers throughout North America. It’s a small world, after all.
Perhaps the ‘Jihad by stealth’ faction decided against the DC or NYC or LA dirty bomb route, for now– seeing as the Obama regime is pretty much laying itself prostrate and naked before militant and nastily-connected Islamic advisors, groups, and their dictated protocols.
We’ll be keeping you informed. ~

~ ITEM: ‘FESSING UP– “Christina Romer: Our War On The U.S. Economy Must Continue”
~ ITEM: Climate Change: The ‘Planned Recession’ Strategy
~ OBAMA AND his National Socialist Democrat cronies, commies, and radical hangers-on want to cripple the U.S., create a global welfare state, and help (along with the EURoids & other soft totalitarians) to boss evvybody else around, cuz they got the wisdom, and are better than us.
Communism is a cult for snobs, bigots, and hateful control-freaks who find life and people and good and evil just too messy and disorganized. It’s a mental illness. And it’s infected the current American Administration. It’s a high & lonely destiny thing. War, by other means.
Better Red Than Yank
It’s also traitorous, evil, and anti-freedom. Like the slithering Jihadis in America who want another kind of country, the radicals hate America as she is: flawed, glorious, powerful, and sometimes even effective in opposing tyranny. They’d much rather a subjection to Communist ideals, if not old-style propaganda and Russian style, ANYTHING instead of a republic and a democracy, ruled by law, and positively influenced by Christianity, and the best of the West.
Philosophically, it’s the same old Greek problem of the relationship of the many to the one, and of the real to the ideal. Instead of human power reined back and for the protecting of the one from the many, they’d rather subsume the many to the Ones(s), they Ones being the better wiser philosopher-kings and tyrants, who will accomplish what no other people have, and resist all temptations to abuse of power, and by force of will and good intentions create an ideal heaven on earth, where the many are a mass to be managed, not individuals (like the Ones themselves) each sinful and yet made in the image of God. All failures and unforseen consequences will be blamed on others.
So these Betters fancy– and do dirty underhanded war for– an imaginary utopian USSA instead of the real one, and revolution and destruction versus reform and remembering. Having substituted the Zeitgeist for the Holy Ghost, they are spiritually mad, driven, cruel, neo-barbarians.
Expose them. Mock them. Vote them all out. ASAP. ~
