In That Day

All Soul’s Day: Dies Irae

For to this end Christ died, and lived again, that he might be Lord of both the dead and the living.” Romans 14. 8, 9.

+

~ FOR MODERN MEN & WOMEN, losing any sense of Death, Judgment, Heaven Or Hell leads inevitably & directly to man acting as a self-judging mini-god. That leads to warfare, supremacism, mercilessness, and getting away with things. Thence madness, violence, lies, and 2018.

As I’ve been reading about our Western cultural elites, I’m shocked/ not shocked by what the rich & powerful do behind the scenes. Many ordinary people likewise.

But what if there IS a right & wrong? Good & evil? What if we are accountable? Much of ordinary human life is all about distracting us, crushing silence and unsettling thoughts and questions.

What if all desires are known, and no secrets truly hidden? What if our old unrepented forgotten hidden sins have not just dissolved with time? What if the evil whispers shall be shouted from the rooftops in That Day?

What if God is as the Church has taught, and we are a few missed heartbeats & breaths from standing naked & defenceless before His perfect infinite goodness.. and love?

Pray this day for those who have gone before us through the veil, especially our friends & enemies, family & benefactors, and all those who died with nobody to pray for them and with them.

O FATHER of all, we pray to thee for those whom we love but see no longer. Grant them thy peace; and in thy loving wisdom and almighty power, work in them the good purpose of thy perfect will; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

REST eternal grant unto him, O Lord, and let light perpetual shine upon him. Amen.

Thus saith

Teh Binks

Dies Irae/Day of Wrath
DIES irae, dies illa,

solvet saeculum in favilla,

teste David cum Sibylla.

Day of wrath and doom impending,

David’s word with Sibyl’s blending,

Heaven and earth in ashes ending.

Quantus tremor est futurus,

quando iudex est venturus,

cuncta stricte discussurus!

O what fear man’s bosom rendeth,

When from heaven the Judge descendeth,

On whose sentence all dependeth.

Tuba mirum spargens sonum

per sepulcra regionum,

coget omnes ante thronum.

Wondrous sound the trumpet flingeth,

Through earth’s sepulchers it ringeth,

All before the throne it bringeth.

Mors stupebit et natura,

cum resurget creatura,

iudicanti responsura.

Death is struck, and nature quaking,

All creation is awaking,

To its Judge an answer making.

Liber scriptus proferetur,

in quo totum continetur,

unde mundus iudicetur.

Lo, the book exactly worded,

Wherein all hath been recorded,

Thence shall judgment be awarded.

Iudex ergo cum sedebit,

quidquid latet apparebit:

nil inultum remanebit.

When the Judge His seat attaineth,

And each hidden deed arraigneth,

Nothing unavenged remaineth.

Quid sum miser tunc dicturus?

quem patronum rogaturus?

cum vix iustus sit securus.

What shall I, frail man, be pleading?

Who for me be interceding

When the just are mercy needing?

Rex tremendae maiestatis,

qui salvandos salvas gratis,

salva me, fons pietatis.

King of majesty tremendous,

Who dost free salvation send us,

Fount of pity, then befriend us.

Recordare Iesu pie,

quod sum causa tuae viae:

ne me perdas illa die.

Think, kind Jesus, my salvation

Caused Thy wondrous Incarnation,

Leave me not to reprobation.

Quarens me, sedisti lassus:

redemisti crucem passus:

tantus labor non sit cassus.

Faint and weary Thou hast sought me,

On the Cross of suffering bought me,

Shall such grace be vainly brought me?

Iuste iudex ultionis,

donum fac remissionis,

ante diem rationis.

Righteous Judge, for sin’s pollution

Grant Thy gift of absolution,

Ere that day of retribution.

Ingemisco, tamquam reus:

culpa rubet vultus meus:

supplicanti parce Deus.

Guilty now I pour my moaning,

All my shame with anguish owning,

Spare, O God, Thy suppliant groaning.

Qui Mariam absolvisti,

et latronem exaudisti,

mihi quoque spem dedisti.

Through the sinful woman shriven,

Through the dying thief forgiven,

Thou to me a hope hast given.

Preces meae non sunt dignae:

sed tu bonus fac benigne,

ne perenni cremer igne.

Worthless are my prayers and sighing,

Yet, good Lord, in grace complying,

Rescue me from fires undying.

Inter oves locum praesta,

et ab haedis me sequestra,

statuens in parte dextera.

With Thy sheep a place provide me,

From the goats afar divide me,

To Thy right hand do Thou guide me.

Confutatis maledictis,

flammis acribus addictis.

voca me cum benedictis.

When the wicked are confounded,

Doomed to flames of woe unbounded,

Call me with Thy Saints surrounded.

Oro supplex et acclinis,

cor contritum quasi cinis:

gere curam mei finis.

Low I kneel with heart’s submission,

See, like ashes, my contrition,

Help me in my last condition.

Lacrimosa dies illa,

qua resurget ex favilla.

iudicandus homo reus:

huic ergo parce Deus.

Ah! That day of tears and mourning,

From the dust of earth returning,

Man for judgment must prepare him,

Spare, O God, in mercy spare him.

Pie Iesu Domine,

dona eis requiem. Amen.

Lord, all-pitying, Jesus blest,

Grant them Thine eternal rest. Amen.

Tommy Robinson: The Conspiracy

Tommy-Robinson-anti-racism-protest-997717

~ YOU’LL NEVER guess what? Not only was Tommy Robinson just released from prison, but he also has been TOTALLY vindicated in the summary of the judgment by the Lord Chief Justice of England & Wales. Huzzah!

Such raging conspiratorial injustice really rustles my jimmies. Rustles.

The Judgment Is Damning

The reality of the matter? Tommy Robinson was vindicated, and proven right. His supporters & supporting commentators were proven right. His opponents were proven wrong, and in the case of the deliberate & constant political & legal establishment interference in his case, it seems they were also careless, malicious, and conspiratorial in their rush to judgment & imprisonment.

>> Robinson WAS unjustly & wrongly tried, rushed to judgment, and very hastily imprisoned. In prison, he was abused.

>> He was NOT given proper time or access to his lawyers to make a fair defence.

>> He was cruelly kept from seeing his children by an arbitrary prison policy.

>> The exact charges & reasons for such a long sentence were a muddle.

But Wait, It Gets Much Worse!

Further, he was moved from a “safer” prison, to one where (1) he was daily threatened with death, yelled at, spat upon, had feces pushed through his cell window, and  physically psychologically abused, (2) Where there was a powerful Muslim inmate component, who made it clear they would try to kill him. (3) They also threatened his family. (4) In the last two months he was all but starved, losing 42 pounds.

He spent 2 months in solitary confinement, in order to avoid being murdered by Muslim prison gangs. Unspeakable abuse & mistreatment in a demon-clown failing political system out to get him. Clearly, Tommy Robinson was never supposed to be a problem again– murder by inmates would have silenced the pest. It’s happened before in the UK.

CONSPIRACY.

KANGAROO COURT.

TORTURE. BY THE UK STATE.

ANARCHO-TERRORIST STATE, WHERE THE INNOCENT ARE PERSECUTED.

In the modern anarcho-terror state, the perps run free, and the innocent & those seeking justice will be punished, abused, and– as in Britain in 2017-2018, possibly even held as a political prisoner, like Tommy was. “Justice”– yeah, just like the show–trials in the Soviet Union, Nazi German, Communist China. “Fair” trial, then the execution-squad.

The First Link

It’s pretty obvious this was a political hit by the Establishment, acting through the courts. Who contacted the Judge in Leeds? Who told the prison-system to move Robinson into a more dire situation? There’s so many questions, and answers begging to be found.

This judge in Leeds [ Geoffrey Marson QC ] who did all this to Tommy & his family? A bad judge, serving the anarcho-terrorists in the English Establishment, who wanted to silence an embarrassing whistle-blower and provocateur. He should step down, and be formally reprimanded, IMHO. Dirty dirty dirty.

notice-to-the-press-reporting-restriction-postponement-order-in-the-crown-33402879

Remember: there are multiple layers to this fetid swamp-cake. Part of the reason the Muslim rape-groomers were ignored for three decades and more? The UK establishment itself is rotten with sex-abuse, cover-ups, and unspeakable deeds.

People such as Prince Andrew, and former British PM Tony Blair– amongst many other notable political and celebrity British & North American names– were  visitors to convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s “Satanic-cult Pedo Island” in the Caribbean.

I’m sure it was all perfectly innocent. Both Epstein’s flight-logs to the Island and his ‘Little Black Book‘ were quite eye-opening. A veritable who’s-whom.

This Brought Tears To My Eyes

Below, Ezra & Tommy meet, for the first time after Tommy’s release. Wow. Ezra’s not perfect, but he is a Canadian hero, who refused to see this good man forgotten, or dead. Bravo to my friend Ezra.*

FIRE THEM ALL. HANG THEM UP. EXPOSE THE ROT.

Oh, and.. yet again, TRUMP was on the case.

Tommy is not totally free yet. Please keep praying, that justice is finally done.

~ U.S. POTUS TRUMP IS taking Them™ down.. slowly, carefully, taking the time to do it right.  Read between the news-media lines.

In response, the legacy media is screaming like a klaxon to try and take President Trump down. They are also attacking citizen journalism, and alternative channels for news, analysis, and freeing your mind. Binks has already talked about this several times, so I get to do my special ITYS dance now (look away! spare the children!).

2048

Oh, that kwazy Trump: So which is he? A total buffoon, or literally Hitler? Incompetent woman-abusing screw-up, or evil super-genius? Russian-puppet, or cunning Machiavellian? Take your pick via the poodle-media– as instructed by the Dempublican party, the Deep State, the corrupted part of the FBI, Clintonland, and the social media dark forces. Oh, and the globalists.

For all these, Trump is Public Enemy #1. Wonder why?

Point, O Windbag Elf?

Long story short: here’s what you are not being told. Hang onto your wigs.

> Trump (DJT) is going to take down/ expose the Clintons & their slush-funds & their child-trafficking & many crimes.

> DJT’s infamous Twitter messages are part of his plan, not random lunacy.

> DJT is going to clean up the FBI/ CIA.

> DJT is going to expose the political assassins operating in America.

> DJT is already arresting corrupt officials: fess up, or no immunity.

> DJT is going to reform & restructure the corrupt cartel of the Federal Reserve, and make it fully accountable to the U.S. government & people.

> DJT is going to expose the corrupt/ criminal parts of Democratic / Republican Party establishments. Congress, Senate, bureaucracy, too.

> DJT is going to expose Obama, and his Administration’s crimes & corruption.

> DJT is going to cripple the Deep State chokehold on America & the world.

> DJT may let some little or medium-fish off the hook, to better take down the big fish.

> DJT is going to expose the child-traffickers & cultists at work in DC, Pedo/ HollyWeird, the Churches, and America.

“Well, Oooookay”, you say, “Uh.. Binks?– exactly what the heck are you smoking? It’s clearly filled up your tinfoil hat, and you’ve gone utterly nuts.”

I respond with one question: Who Is Q? No, not the guy from the Bond, James Bond movies (Sean Connery forever, BTW).

Q, or Q-Anon is a group of top-clearance military intelligence folks, and some civilians. They work together to lay out to the public the map of what is really happening in America today. Q-Anon releases news hints & indicators of what’s important via message boards. Usually, Q predicts or highlights it, and the exact news & events happen.

Deny! Deflect! Defame! Repeat!

Di5MqngVsAAgaO1

Right now, the media is panicking, because the whole rotten structure they protect & prop up is under threat.. hence the loud quacking and attempts at distraction & attempted moral panics and the usual mind-control.  Ignore the noise: look at what they attack, or cover up & ignore.

Digital Big Censor™ has also stepped up with fresh efforts to stop the signal, to prevent the peasants from thinking, learning, and asking to be ruled properly. FaceBook, Google, Twitter, YouTube are all in on it. It is not a conspiracy when it’s blatant, and out in the open.

So Very Carefully

giphy1

However, telling the public all this stuff takes time and much wisdom. Likewise, Jesus didn’t show up in a blaze of divine glory and bellow “I’m God. Deal, bitches.” The Saviour preached & taught & used captivating stories; renewed people’s minds and hearts by grace, and asked people to come and see, to follow him.

Same with this coming political revolution, which– if successful– will have world-wide consequences. The truth has to be unfolded over time, so everything doesn’t fall down at once, and people aren’t simply overwhelmed.

To Clarify & Conclude

I don’t like or seek out conspiracy theories. I am more interested in what has been called “Coincidence Theories”.. how things and people & their goals often fit together to certain ends.

Read up. Please, prove me wrong. Think for yourself. What if Trump– with all his sins & failings and pridefulness– is literally a gift from God for such a time as this?

Trust but verify. Who does the mainstream media really serve? The louder the critics, the closer you look.  ~

~ YES, I CAN BE longwinded in these things, so today, a short one.

A sad realization I’ve had over the past few weeks– Oleg Atbashian (The People’s Cube) was a former Soviet propagandist, he’s also an author, essayist, satirist, and graphic artist. He came to America for freedom.

Like many former Soviet dissidents come to the West, his reception was mixed– now, he’s a positive threat to the new Sovietization of the West. The same happened to Jamie Glazov’s parents, at Marxist-deluded Dalhousie University in Halifax, NS, Canada. Don’t reveal the ugly truth of the Worker’s Utopia!

yg

Neo-Amerika, 2018

Now, under the politically correct, the corrupt establishment, politicized academia & media, we are going Soviet. Soft Soviet, with a smug smile and an iron fist. This devolution has been underway for almost a century, under many guises, and stages. Coercion of thought and behaviour is the ultimate goal.

Symptoms, just on Campus? Tribunals, trial by media & mob, the politics of personal destruction, radicalization of politics, thought-police, a quiet terror keeping people quiet & scared. Wrong-thinkers versus the Party Truth. Spying & tattling & surveillance. All must be sacrificed for the utopia.

sjw-university-ben-garrison_4_orig

We have become a Soviet-style prison, just waiting for the final bars & locks to be fitted. Ironic, no? Tragic, too.

Theodore Dalrymple:

“In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is…in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.”

A Gift To Us All

And patiently, year by year, Oleg & his amazingly insightful website has been warning us of the risks ahead, from his life under the Soviet nightmare. We should all be grateful, and aware of his work.

Go read his blog. Read his book “Shakedown Socialism“. Buy his merch. I’m not saying he’s always right in everything said & done and thought– but that his angle is unique, deeply insightful, and hard-won by bitter experience.

Heed his warnings. Tragically, he’s turned out to be right, so far.

#YouTubePurge 2018: The Story So Far

fleurdeflourish

~ YOU KNOW those deliriously happy people in commercials and photos?– we’re supposed to be like that. Just– super-DUPER happy. Happy with the new tech-toys, happy with travelling and gathering random experiences, happy with the semi-anonymous exchange of bodily fluids, happy watching the same movie and listening to the same song, each only slightly varied from the other ones. Such very fun!

Except.. life. The world. Politics. Our longing hearts, seeking a kingdom of true peace, and inner peace. And in our world, restless Progressivism must “progress”, which means interfering with everything & everyone in sight.

“People don’t like to be meddled with. We tell them what to do, what to think. Don’t run, don’t walk. We’re in their homes and in their heads and we haven’t the right. We’re meddlesome.”

River Tam, movie Serenity (2005)

Most of all, the meddlers don’t like a taste of their own medicine. The Euro & American establishments both got a huge dose of meddlesome & uppity peasants with the U.S. Fall election of one Donald John Trump in 2016, and the Brexit vote earlier that same Summer.

Big Meddle got a royally bloody nose. And then their planet-sized snit ensued.

bloody-nose
Elites: “This is going to hurt you peasants a lot more than you hurt us.”

The Snit Ensues: Details

Looking back at 2016, Team Meddle knows one thing: internets helped bad thing happen: must part-muzzle peasants! In 2015-2016, YouTube, Twitter, Google Search, Drudge, FaceBook were all used by the peasants as levers of public awareness, circumventing the lapdog media, and the political establishments feeding the elite narrative.

Must fix! So now it’s Big Backlash by Big Meddle, with shadow-banning, leftwards algorithms, demonetized videos and YouTube Channels, Twitter deletions and bans, FaceBook Jail & nanny-messaging. This is all to one end: to stop the anti-Meddle meddling by the revolting peasants. Social Media weaponized against non-compliant political-cultural-religious users.

Our digital self is a big thing for many Western people: imagine being all but banned, being digitally unpersonned, silenced, unable to get alternative news quickly, and not being able to discuss it with others? A genuine debility, in some respects.

It gets worse for the meddlers in 2018– the peasants not only spoke up several years ago, they keep speaking up, and even when some get banned, shadow-banned, de-monetized, and slapped down, they and their peasant allies still keep fighting back and speaking out! What’s a Big Meddle authoritarian to do?

The Other So Happier 2018…

Hillary-Clinton-s-presidential-seal

You see, just now President Hillary the globalist mafiosa is entering her second year, with her Canada-style gun rules coming into force and her FBI poodles covering her tracks, and the bodies quietly piling up; and a nearly de-blooded Islamicized United Kingdom is laying prone before the unelected autocrats in Brussels, surrendering every freedom, distinctive, and historical authority over itself to Big Meddle, and imported trouble. Same as it ever was, before 2016. Nigel Farage is merely a bad memory.

Troika-Unelected1Just as planned pre-2013, the one-world progressive Pope is working closely with globalist schemer George Soros, President Hillary and the EUcrats towards a one-world government, more social control, more disruptive weaponized “immigration”, and a gentler Chinese-style control of the internet and all social media. And a suitable one-world religion to match.

150617114054-global-warming-pope-gfx-large-169

In the 2018 that should have been, the internet is still an issue, but as long as a few grumblers don’t actually write letters, protest, speak to their elected representatives and get organized, they are pesky, but harmless: one mosquito at a time. SLAP! People vanish from Twitter and YouTube and FaceBook, and nobody wonders why.

New uppity-peasant YouTube channels with ‘unacceptable’ politically incorrect content all have a terrible time trying to get started, and make no advertising money. Troublesome news-sources are all but invisible online, or very hard to find on Google, banned on Twitter, sidelined on FaceBook, or in links on other pages. With advertising revenues dropping, many outlets are forced to cut back reporting, or shut down entirely.

DVDxRjQXUAAk__v

What Next?

The fight must continue. Alternative social media platforms are only part of an answer, since we must stay in the public square, not surrender it to the bullies. And the bullies are not totally above the law, or invulnerable, either.

Actually protesting, writing letters, speaking out, exposing the Big Agenda and educating others about it, getting involved at the local level, reading books, praying for God’s Kingdom to come, and aligning ourselves with His almighty will makes any protest or expressed concern more than just our team versus theirs, screech versus scream.

It will cost us something– perhaps everything– but the West is not founded on trusting in the strength of men, but on a trust in the Risen power of Jesus Christ– the only-begotten Son of God– to truly make all things new, in the great re-creation.

tumblr_m4oph8nTof1r9sebro1_r2_1280

― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King.

This is our fight, in our day. God knows the outcome, but I know that if we sit back and self-indulgently despair, we have already lost our contribution to the battle for freedom, faith, and our own civilization in our time.

~ JUST THE OTHER DAY, some ‘marchers for peace’ from Queen’s University in Kingston Ontario, Canada, protested a speech by lighting-rod author, professor and gadfly, Jordan Peterson. Inevitably, they wanted him silenced for, you know.. Reasons™. Some windows at the university were broken; virtue was signalled, the young Marxist social justice warriors felt superior, and succeeded in not learning or unlearning a single thing.

There was even a little incitement to murder & arson. ‘Lock em in and burn it down!’ yelled some of these “tolerant peace-loving” students. Yeah, that’s how I deal with discussions. Incitement & threats. Fire & kill.

The title of the terrible, horrible, very bad speech? “The Rising Tide of Compelled Speech in Canada.” Lifesite reports:

“Peterson posted several clips of the protest on Twitter, telling a follower that the speaking engagement was “absolutely surreal.”

“The mob neglected to bring torches and pitchforks, but the sentiment was there: ‘Lock them in and burn it down,’” he wrote.”

The End Is Past Nigh

Apocalypto_2006-Mel-Gibson-Maya-44
Coming over for tea.. and staying for dinner.

In Mel Gibson’s excellent movie Apocalypto (2006), neither the protagonists– captured slaves– or the bad guys– the forest-wrecking temple-building heart-ripper-outers know that it’s the end of their world. They go about their business.. then, in the penultimate scene, we see the European sailing ships coming closer to the shore.

Whatever was before is not gonna be that way very much longer. The future isn’t what it used to be. “Burn all down! Fresh start!” is the new cry for revolution, devolution, and The Big Satanic Lie that we can make a new world by sincerity, effort, and all built of our own fallen selves. “Ye shall be as gods”.

Read, Learn, Weep

Hilary_White_300_300_55gray_s_c1
Miss H. White.

That’s the wisdom I draw from Hilary White’s latest essay cri de cœurBECOMING AS GODS: The Murder of Desdemona by Othello, Abortion and Communion in the Hand“.

Just go read the whole thing, and as yourself the question from Mel’s movie: If our world was ending, would we know it?

The thing I like about Hilary’s essay is the big picture– taking little signs and symptoms and showing how the whole structure of the West is in danger, from within and without. Nihilism is nopt a passive force: it’s rather like a poison gas leaking into everything, dissolving the core, and leaving only fragile appearances of what was, ready to fall.

Sadly, the same radicalism has captured most Western Churches: disruption, discontinuity, ugly new utopian content. Hilary nails this perfectly.

What If It’s Here?

maxresdefault
Acadia U. Nice view.  shame about the silencing.

What if your own kids & grandkids– poisoned by socially & politically radical teachers, cultural influences, and college– were the new barbarians inside the gates? How could you tell?

Right now at Acadia University, in elm-shaded picturesque Wolfville Nova Scotia, is the fresh front in the war on civilization by “outraged” students and their enabling professoriate. Professor Rick Mehta is under fire for– teaching things. Things contrary to the progressive/ Marxist meta-narrative of victimhoods, oppressors, and the politics of personal destruction for any who don’t toe the party line.

Some Kids Are Crazy & Bad


War on Acadia U prof’s academic independence takes serious turn

Honestly, I’d rather just binge on NetFlix and hide while the walls come tumbling down on this city that I love: but dear people and good and true and beautiful things are at risk, and even the current enemies of those things might be saved from their madness and hate and self-righteousness.

A Sign of Hope?

Despair and doom-binging can be self-indulgent and blind to the possibilities even within apparent overwhelming darkness. After all, St. Paul & Christ’s Apostles faced and entire Empire founded on naked power, Emperor-worship, and pagan confusions. “Redeeming the time, for the days are evil“, says the Apostle to the Gentiles [Eph. 5:16].

One tiny point of brightness: I recently read on a YouTube video a comment by a college-aged kid who said that countless numbers of his friends & fellow students were binge-watching Jordan Peterson and other such content, because they were tired of the one-note lock-step radicalism of their professors. Truth finds a way.

YouTube app on digital devices

That is, behind the deceptive ivy-facade, and behind the radicalism within, social media was in fact enabling young people to learn to see all sides of various questions, to hear actually diverse points of view, and to — horror of horrors- learn to think, reason, argue & debate. That they have to have a hidden remedial education within a $5-$10K institutional mis-education– while parroting their professors– is a picture of the horror-circus we have let develop in our society.

We will need such young people and all such folks to rebuild things on the ruins of what was. The end IS past nigh.

Do Your Duty

Ghostly-Building-Facades-2
Look BEHIND the facades….

Investigate your local schools and colleges. Do due diligence before sending your kid off to school, imagining it still is like it was 30 or 50 years ago. Withhold donations and gifts and let them know what you think. And of your kindness, say a prayer and send a word to Acadia on behalf of Professor Rick Mehta. And don’t forget the petition.

Queens grad? Let them know what you think about the recent semi-riot. Because some students used their free speech to oppose free speech.

Dear Dr. Hemming:

 
Navigating the Acadia website was like wandering through a picturesque maze, with not a single human being to be seen. In five minutes, I didn’t see the actual name of anyone, let alone Heather Hemming’s. I phoned the switchboard, hoping to speak to someone who could give me Ms Hemming’s email address: the hours are 8:30-4:30, Monday to Friday, so no luck. So, here I am at the general email address.
 
I also thought of contacting Acadia’s Office of Safety and Security as I believe that Professor Mehta’s safety and security are under siege—the topic of this message.
 
I have been an educator for 45 years. In that time, I have noticed a serious deterioration in both the maturity and behaviour of a critical mass of students. At the same time, I have noticed a standing down of the administrators, whose first line of defense now seems to be to appease the miscreant. This solves the problem of having to deal with an even more angry, entitled student and, often, that student’s belligerent parent(s). It’s nice for the three parties just mentioned—and hell for teachers, not to mention society at large.
 
I have twice been physically assaulted as well as suspended, minus due process, on the say-so of well known, student bullies. In all cases, the students were coddled and catered to: there were no negative consequences for them, but plenty for me. Who do you think felt really unsafe? As a colleague says, “Our schools are safe, all right—for the bullies.”
 
I attended excellent public schools in Toronto in the 50s and 60s: the adults were in charge. There were clear boundaries and not only were we safe, we felt safe! Academics were rigorous—a far cry from the curricula today—and we were held to account. We were not taught to be offended : the very idea of micro-aggressions and triggers didn’t enter our minds.
 
We were treated respectfully, which meant that we were held to high academic and behavioural standards. We could actually fail a grade. We could actually be suspended. Teaching our children that they have a right not to be offended is, in my opinion, a form of child abuse. This fiction renders young people very vulnerable to their own capricious and often tempestuous emotions. How is allowing vindictive and often misguided emotion to be the standard by which a university makes crucial decisions helpful to anyone?
 
Professor Mehta sounds like a man after my own heart. If the fairy tales being propagated at places like Acadia weren’t so outlandish, Professor Mehta’s ideas would seem to be just what they are: fairly mainstream. Why are his rights the only ones being disregarded? Why is his integrity considered expendable? Why is it OK to offend him?
 
Ms Hemmings, in attempting to censor, shame and bully Professor Mehta, Acadia seems willing to put itself in the same position as Wilfrid Laurier, which, deservedly, became a laughing stock. It seems that you’re unable to discern the gigantic double standard under which you appear to be operating. Acadia seems to have everything backwards: in order to enforce tolerance, you are intolerant. In order to appease the immature appetites of a group of coddled adult toddler students, it seems that Acadia is willing to sacrifice not only the integrity of a hard working, accountable academic, but his very livelihood. Shame on you.
 
How about if Acadia were to come to its senses and follow the example of the University of Chicago, re its expectations of its students? How about if Acadia were to actually treat its students not like spoiled brats, but like adults?
 
“Our commitment to academic freedom means that we do not support so-called ‘trigger warnings,’ we do not cancel invited speakers because their topics might prove controversial, and we do not condone the creation of intellectual ‘safe spaces’ where individuals can retreat from ideas and perspectives at odds with their own,” the letter said.
 
 
How about if universities stopped being Potemkin Villages of Tolerance and became, in fact, safe spaces for all of their faculty and students? Now, wouldn’t that be a novelty?
 
Very Sincerely,
 
NNN NNN”
